Orange Blossom Events
Brooke is soooooooooo on top of her game! Thought of everything! So fast in responding to emails that sometimes I got answers before I sent the email with my questions. She is well experienced and is super, super patient and always has a helpful response and awesome vendors/contacts. Thank you Brooke! I have no idea how I would have planned any of our wedding without your detail oriented and organized guidence.
My, now, husband :) and I worked with Brooke to make our wedding happen. She was wonderful. Leading up to our wedding she was enthusiastic yet grounded about ideas I ran by her. Two days before our wedding I wanted to book a band. I thought this wouldn't go over very well because I imagined that she'd have so much to change because of it but, she was awesome! With her usual bright and upbeat way she just got it all coordinated and we had a blast. She took care of everything and our day ran so smooth. She's professional, attentive and a great problem solver -- just fantastic.
Couldn't ask for a better wedding planning coordinator than Brooke! She had my wedding day running smoothly! She was very responsive to all my e-mails from day one! She would go beyond her contractual obligations to assist you. She was amazing! I highly recommend her for your wedding coordinator. You do need Brooke, trust me on that one! :) Thank you, Brooke!
Krista was super amazing! I'm a highly organized individual so it was hard finding someone that could meet my standards. Upon meeting Krista, I could tell right away that she was the coordinator for me. She is so detailed, she pays attention to your wants and needs, and she takes care of any of your duties listed.
I remember asking her simple things and wanting to know details about hotel parking costs, transportation, etc.. She responded super quick each time! It really wasn't her job to call and ask certain things but she did it anyway, I thought that was super helpful for the stress I was going through.
I know that hiring her was the best thing because I can relax and let her take care of all the things needed. She is what every bride needs, reliable and trustworthy.
Krista is amazing! I decided at the last minute that I wanted a wedding planner and I am so glad I did. She made my special day run so smoothly! I never felt for one second stressed out and that is because I knew everything was in good hands. If it wasn't for her my day wouldn't have been as beautiful as it was. Krista is talented, creative, professional and so much fun!
I must say, Krista Romberg of Orange Blossom Events is absolutely wonderful! Our wedding was everything we dreamed of and we have Krista to thank for it. Most brides and grooms don't realize how much work goes into the wedding planning process. Trust me when I say that having a coordinator, especially in the final stages, is invaluable. It can get extremely overwhelming and Krista was right there to take care of so many things for me. I had peace of mind knowing that she had it covered. Her knowledge and expertise made the entire process fun, which is how it should be for us brides! Also, her knack for detail and eye for design brought all my ideas to life! Initially, cost may tend to keep brides from hiring a coordinator for their wedding but with a coordinator like Krista, you get so so much more back. Trust me, its worth it!!!! I am so happy I hired Orange Blossom Events. My wedding experience wouldn't have been half as amazing without Krista!
Krista took the stress away from wedding planning. She helped with design as well as month-of services-- both were priceless. She is all the things the previous reviewers said and more. Organized, artistic, friendly, professional, and well-connected. She gets things done without being pushy and somehow makes it all seem easy and stress-free. She was always there with a fast response if I needed her or was worried about something in particular.
What my family and I appreciated most about Krista was her ability to understand us and our needs. She truly cared about us, and that is what made her invaluable.
I know people can get skeptical when you firewall someone with 5 stars down the line, but Krista REALLY IS that AMAZING. I'm definitely a control freak with an eye for detail, so when it came to my wedding I wanted to make sure every possible detail and contingency was planned for AND I wanted to enjoy the day. Tall order, I know. I initially started planning everything out myself, but knew I wanted someone for the day-of. Right from the start, Krista treated me like I was a hugely important client with an enormous wedding (which I really wasn't). As the day got closer, I got really busy at work and ended up working with her for the two months prior, instead of just the day-of. Her flexibility was invaluable to me. In retrospect, I really should have just hired her right from the beginning to plan the whole thing - she is well worth it and has very reasonable rates.
The entire experience of working with her was incredibly enjoyable. She's personable, very professional, knows the San Diego area wedding biz and is a lot of fun to work with. She was absolutely a God-send on the day of my wedding, keeping all the logistics in order, taking care of my husband and I and allowing me to just enjoy the best day of my life.
I would hands-down recommend her to my sister, my best friend and to you! You will not be anything less than 110% pleased with Krista.
I could not have gotten through the mayhem without Krista Romberg. Resourceful, professional, and in charge- the flow of the event was flawless.
Krista is the best thing that could have happened to our wedding! Our wedding was to be featured in the bridal magazine I worked for, and she helped us accomplish a wedding beyond our wildest dreams, while keeping us within our budget. Her extensive vendor connections were of great assistance, too. Also, Krista listened to our vision, and, because of her experience and creativeness, was able to help us take it to a level that we couldn't have imagined. Our wedding was PERFECT and STRESS-FREE because of Krista!
Krista is aaaammmaaaazzzinngggg!!!! Outstanding professional!! She was so thorough and had a meticulous attention to detail! Our wedding day could not have been more perfect ... she even ordered the sunshine! ;) The design of the event was flawless and EVERYONE was impressed by the venue and flow of the event. I could not have asked for a better planner and friend. Krista thank you so much for making our wedding day PERFECT!
Krista can only be described as an absolute lifesaver! I may have gone crazy if I did not have her there by my side during the planning process and especially the day of the wedding.
What impressed me most about Krista was her wide array of skills as a coordinator. I have heard that many planners tend to err on the side of either being good at the organization or good at the design aspect. Krista is blessed with great skill at both. I never had to worry about confirming any details with vendors or making sure people were doing what they were supposed to because Krista was on top of every detail. She is easily the most organized and detail-oriented person I've ever met, and that is exactly what one needs when planning a wedding.
Another thing that I was so impressed by after working with Krista was the beautiful design elements she came up with for the wedding. I had a relatively small budget for a San Diego area wedding and many guests have told me it was one of the most gorgeous, classy weddings they have ever been to. She did amazing, really creative things that looked great and made the event reflect my husband and I.
I would recommend Krista to any bride as I know she will make their day just as perfect as she made mine.
Krista saved the day! In the beginning my mom and I tried our best to plan my wedding from A to Z. Initially all went well, but as time got closer to the wedding we realized just how much there was to do. Overwhelmed and stressed we listened to the advice of others and went in search of a wedding planner. Orange Blossom Events was referred to us so we gave Krista a call.
From the start she was personable, attentive, and professional. She accomodated our schedule, listened to our wants, and made them happen. Not only that, but on the day of the wedding I was stress free! My husband, Marc, was especially thankful to Krista for allowing us to truly enjoy our wedding and reception; because I was happy, he was happy.
I highly recommend Orange Blossom Events, my only regret is that I didn't call sooner.
We absolutely loved working with Krista and would highly recommend her to any bride that needs help planning her special day.
Was very helpful during the planning and execution of my wedding. It was especially difficult to plan a wedding from another state, but Krista helped keep me on track and helped us save costs along the way. I would recommend Krista to any bride/groom because her organizational skills, her vision and drive make her an amazing Wedding Planner (these words do not do her justice)
We could not have done it without her!! She turned our wedding into something even more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Plus she made the whole experience a wonderful one. She's very connected and works well within budgets. I highly recommend her to any busy bride. She takes the stress out of the planning and lets you sit back and enjoy your special day!
If you want a stress-free, beautiful, creative event- then hire Orange Blossom Events! Krista was absolutely wonderful every step of the way! She made my day run flawlessly and kept my wedding party on time! Her personal touches on my design and decor made my event one to remember. Krista's vendor referrals saved me a lot of time and money! The vendors she referred were amazing and professional. Any minor problems that came up along the way, Krista handled quickly, calmy, and very professionally without ever letting me know!! She was so fun to work with that we've continued to remain close friends even after my event! Having worked in the wedding industry myself, I know Krista is truly the best coordinator in town!
Krista's assistance on my Special Day was invaluable. Although Weddings have unforeseen challenges, Krista made it seem flawless to my family, my guests, and me. She is what all planners should strive to be like. I highly recommend her services to anyone.
To whom it may concern:
Back in winter of 2005, my then-fiancé and I undertook the daunting task of planning our San Diego wedding from 6000 miles away in Taiwan. At the time, we had to weigh the obvious benefits of retaining a coordinator locally against the constraints of our budget, which was compounded by the expense of getting ourselves and my fiancés friends and family members across the Pacific Ocean!
After having contacted a large number of coordinators, we finally settled upon Krista Romberg, mainly because her patience, thoroughness and down-to-earth style in corresponding with me by email just put me at ease. In spite of our having chosen only the minimal, day-of-wedding service her agency offered, Krista was persistent in contacting me throughout the half a year leading up to our wedding often going out of her way to touch bases when I lapsed in keeping her up-to-date about our planning. She mustve spent hours supplying me with the much-needed information and guidance that allowed our wedding to come into shape via Internet.
However, it was not until we actually arrived in San Diego just two weeks before the wedding that we found out correct our decision had been. At that time, in spite of all our preliminary arrangements, we got the sense that there was no way on Earth that this event could actually crystallize out of a bunch of disparate emails! That was until we finally met Krista in person. What was supposed to be a quick lunch meeting turned into five hours, during which she answered question after question, while still making every effort to get to know us and make the experience pleasant. At absolutely no benefit to herself, she took on several of the numerous tasks Id yet to handle so that our load would be lightened. In that space of hours, our worries were lifted, and our confidence went from nothing to 100%
During the week between that meeting and the wedding, Krista was in touch with me either by phone or by email on a daily basis. I still had plenty of last minute arrangements and issues to sort out, and had come to realize that having retained Krista for a longer term of service would have been a smart move! Nevertheless, she cheerfully helped me sort things out, never begrudging me a minute of her time.
Finally, on the big weekend, Krista and her assistant did everything possible to make our wedding exactly the way wed wanted it to be. She kept things moving, sorted out minor issues and allowed us to just have fun and always with a beaming smile on her face. Perhaps the biggest endorsement I can give is the fact that even my nitpicky and impossible-to-please bride was simply ecstatic with the results!
Above and beyond her excellent service, what impressed me most about Krista Romberg was simply her attention to my wife and I as people instead of clients. Rather than encouraging us in our tendency to obsess over trivial details, she constantly reminded us that it would all be over before we knew it and that we ought to focus on enjoying it over anything else a sentiment to which I now whole-heartedly concur. She made our happiness her biggest priority, and thats why I am pleased to recommend the services of Krista Romberg to any inquirer.
