Oh my goodness, where do I even start? Natalie is one of the most sweet and professional people I've ever worked with in my life. For the sake of future brides, I will start with the short version and if you'd like to read about all the specific wonderful things Natalie has done for our wedding, read on!

IN SHORT: Let me start off by saying I've done my research before deciding to go with Natalie with A Good Affair. I searched up the top 8 wedding planners in the OC a year and a half before our wedding this May, and made my fiancé interview each and every one of them with me before we chose Natalie. I wanted to be sure I picked someone we could trust and depend on to carry out our thoughts and wants of our wedding vision. Out of all 8 of them, Natalie was the first to respond to my request to interview on the Wedding Wire website- we were on the phone within 10 minutes after I sent the online request. Her promptness with emails and phone calls throughout our relationship proved to be just as consistent as that first call.
Our first meeting took place in her cute office in Newport Beach, my first impression of Natalie was that she was very sweet, listened carefully, and most importantly, was someone who was capable of taking charge and making things happen. I knew from the way she spoke about her previous experiences that she was someone that puts her all into making something happen and she wouldn’t let anyone tell her that something could not be done. She was the type of person you would want on your team because she encompassed a special ability to lead with a perfect balance of kindness and authority. To me, these skills were crucial for a perfect wedding planner who is expected to handle and coordinate all of the other vendors we hired for our big day (photographer, videographer, makeup, food, desserts, florals, photo-booth, hookah, etc.) We needed someone who had both a great vendor list to get us the best deals, and the skills needed to keep all of those vendors on track for exactly what they were supposed to do, and when they needed to perform.
Out of the 8 wedding planners we interviewed, we not only connected best with Natalie, we also trusted her 100% with all of our planning needs. We decided to book her for the whole package, and pretty much had her hold our hand throughout the whole thing. On the day of the wedding, Natalie and her team performed flawlessly. Our timeline was done to a T, and it was quite honestly the most perfect wedding I could ever hope for. We had amazing everything, and the comments we’ve received during and after our wedding has not ceased to this day. Thanks to A Good Affair, our wedding will always be remembered as one of the best planned and most customized weddings anyone has ever been to. I loved everything about our wedding and it could never have been done the same way without Natalie. If you want to be efficient, take my word and my experiences and skip those other interviews with the other planners out there because Natalie will be the best planner anyone can get- I’ve been there, spent 2 weeks interviewing planners and guess what? I chose Natalie for a reason, and I’m so glad I did!

IN LONG: If I were to pick one specific example of when Natalie went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for the wedding, I would have to pick the crazy hookah vendor that we had to deal with. If anyone tells you wedding planning is a breeze, they’re lying. Many things can go wrong when you are trying to set up for a wedding. Vendors can decide not to show up the last minute, cancel, or just plain cater the wrong thing at the wrong time. I was a budget crazy bride and wanted the biggest bang for my buck- for EVERYTHING. This resulted in me finding my own hookah vendor who I thought gave us the best deal. We booked the vendor about 6 months out from the wedding, but at around one month before the wedding our hookah vendor told us he was no longer able to provide the insurance needed to cater to our venue. This was after we had paid him in full and told him we needed insurance papers before he could serve at our venue. After promising that he was able to get us insurance papers, he went back on his word several times. As a professional planner, Natalie contacted him for the insurance papers so we didn’t have to. However, when the time came to turn in his insurance papers, the vendor became very unpleasant and told Natalie it just could not be done. This carried on for almost 4 weeks, up to the Monday before our Saturday wedding. At that point, Natalie made the executive decision that this just was not going work. She took the initiative to find us another hookah vendor just 4 days before the wedding, and actually succeeded. She spent the whole day calling other vendors, doing research, just so we could have our perfect wedding, with our personalized touch of hookah. The best part was, she was such a great negotiator on our behalf that she was able to get the same deal for us as our last one had. Let it be known that yes, there will be times when you have a mini heart-attack (or maybe two) when things don’t go as planned, but if you have Natalie on your team, those heart-attacks will happen BEFORE the wedding- not during. The last thing you want to worry about the week before your wedding is if your vendors are going to perform, the only thing anyone should worry about the last week before their wedding is how perfect you will look going down that beautiful aisle. If you want a flawless wedding, go with a planner that will fight for you, plan for you, and make your wedding experience an unforgettable one. Natalie definitely did all that, and beyond for us. Did I mention that she’s sweet and awesome the whole way too?? LOVE HER!!!
