Claudia was great to work with and made our wedding weekend a breeze! She knew the venue and most the vendors we worked with really well and helped us to stay focused and not get overwhelmed. On the day of, she handled things as they come up without me even knowing about them which I really appreciated. I was able to trust her fully and the end result was a gorgeous, relaxed and well-orchestrated wedding. She was super responsive in the week prior to our wedding and met with us multiple times before the big day. She is easy going, smart and great to work with.
Claudia at Hoste Events was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her knowlege and attention to detail was amazing. She is sensitive to her clients needs and always available to assist in any way possible to make your day relaxed and seamless. She was so much fun to work with and always keeps you laughing...and sets up the best candy bar in town :) We had such positive feed back from all of our guests and any of our other vendors that she had to coordinate for the wedding - everyone loved working with her! Thank you Hoste Events for making our wedding weekend so special!
Claudia did an amazing job with coordinating our wedding! She was friendly and responsive from the very beginning and provided great ideas along the way. Having Claudia really helped keep me on track with the tasks during the wedding planning process and she was an excellent listener as well. Claudia executed our vision perfectly and helped the day to run smoothly. We couldn't have done it without her and I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch coordinator.
We couldn't have been happier with the help Claudia Hoste gave us in planning our daughter's wedding. She had great ideas, kept to our budget, was calm throughout the pre-wedding planning and wedding activities and gave us wonderful advice as to hiring other vendors (e.g. flowers and hair stylist).
Our wedding was held in Ojai, CA which is about two hours from our home. Whenever we went up to Ojai, Claudia was there to meet us and walk us through every step of the way. She has a lovely personality and is fun to work with. We highly recommend her.
My daughters wedding would not have been the success it was without Claudia. My daughter lived in Seattle, the wedding was in northern Illinois and Claudia and I were in California. Even with all this distance between us - everything went perfect. My daughter had the wedding she had dreamed of....what more could a mother want.
Claudia was our calming force....she made our planning seamless and fun! It rained during our outdoor wedding and our guests and the couple still had the time of our lives - somehow Claudia made the rain "part" of the celebration and enchanting!! She is a true gem.
It is my pleasure to recommend Claudia to plan your wedding. She was very organized, professional, and a great communicator. I had a vision for our wedding that I was having a hard time piecing together. Claudia instantly translated my vision into something even better. The moment I walked into the reception with my new husband the charm and beauty of every single detail took my breath away. She had everything under control (200 guest wedding) and even when there were unexpected minor hiccups she improvised so quickly that nobody noticed a single hitch. I am so thankful and glad that she joined our team of excellent vendors! Thank you Claudia for the love and hard work you put into our wedding. It wouldn't have been what it was without you, I will continue to recommend you to my closest friends!
Claudia was such an tremendous help on the big day. We had the wedding on my parents property, and she came over many times in advance to determine exactly where, who , what etc etc... she covered every detail and time line - so that we were able to enjoy the ceremony and reception as if we were guests and not hosts of 100 people!! her detailed visions brought to life a beautiful event which we couldn't have dreamt possible on our limited budget. Her creativity and honest integrity to us as consumers gave us complete trust in her, and a friend for life! We will definitely hire her for all special events in the future. She is very well connected with every vendor, and able to get great prices for us. Thank you Claudia!!!
Claudia and her team and truly professionals and a pleasure to work with. Claudia has great ideas and is always the first to help make the brides vision come true. When I have been chosen as the florist to work with Claudia and her team I have no worries because I know everything will be taken care of. Looking forward to our next event together :)
