A Regal Affair
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Yasmine and her team did above and beyond to ensure our wedding went flawless! I first met Yasmine about 15 months prior to our wedding and I won free "week-of" wedding planning services through a wedding expo. She emailed me to check in on the wedding planning and the free services consisted of 2 meetings. After several emails and noticing her true passion for event planning, I ended up upgrading my services to "month-of" planning. The truth is, Yasmine is willing to do more than what is expected to ensure that every detail is planned. Yasmine will be there for you when you just need to talk about the wedding process and also help you negotiate with vendors. Yasmine is truly doing something right...she totally becomes invested in your wedding day, understands how to handle last minute changes and how to professionally deal with issues. Two days before the wedding, I went to pick up my table linens to drop off the wedding reception site, and they messed up my order and gave me the completely wrong linen. I called Yasmine and within an hour, she was able to get the OWNER on the phone and fixed the problem. The correct linens were ready for pick up 24 hours later and she also dropped off the linens for us after the wedding.

I feel that a wedding planner should be someone who will listen to you, help you execute what your vision is and also be honest with you. Yasmine did that and more, she became my friend in the process! My husband also loved her professionalism, and that she also incorporated his ideas into the wedding. The wedding went great, our family said it was the "best wedding" they have ever been to. Everyone was very impressed with the attention to detail, quality of the event itself and just how well things turned out. I know I'm gushing at this point but seriously, I was happy with Yasmine and would recommend her to anyone who wants to have a unique, upscale and fun wedding day!

I met Ashley and Christin at a bridal fair in Santa Barbara...now that I think about it, they were the FIRST of all of our wedding vendors we met! Anyway, they were so sweet, and I liked their energy, and their quality of work. I have mixed hair (I am Black and Filipino) and am very particular of who does my hair because of so many bad experiences in the past; they were able to work with my hair and they did an excellent job!

On the day of the wedding, they were on time and EXTREMELY efficient! My bridesmaids looked beautiful and I was so happy with my makeup and hair that day! We had about 10 people doing hair and makeup and we were done AHEAD of schedule. They were extremely calm, laid back and in control...they are truly professionals and I am SO HAPPY with them. Overall I had an awesome experience!

They also travel with very reasonable travel fees...better than what I have seen out there. Our wedding was in San Clemente and we were able to workout a very reasonable travel for Ashley, Christin and their 2 assistants.

I loved my LunaBella experience!
