Anita coordinated my daughter's Monterey wedding with flawless expertise. She handled every single detail with perfection, taking care of issues we didn't even know existed. My daughter's wedding was absolutely perfect, and we were able to relax and enjoy the entire experience because Anita took care of everything so well. She is super detail oriented and on top of things, but at the same time she's calm and positive. Most wedding planners in Monterey/Carmel seem to prefer working with couples having super pricey weddings in Carmel Valley, where the venue does a lot of the work for you. If you're on a budget but still want a very special wedding, Anita is your person. I talked with more than a dozen planners and Anita stood out as the most committed, energetic, reliable and knowledgeable person, and the easiest to work with. And she's way more reasonably priced than most of the others. Anita handled our pre-planning, vendor selection and day-of coordination, and her years of experience and number of local contacts were invaluable. There are no words to express how amazing Anita and her team are. You'll love her!Sent on 10/04/2019

A STARR Events - Gets 5 Stars!!!!!
Anita was simply amazing and helped to make our big day perfect!Sent on 07/30/2019
We had heard horror stories from friends who spent their entire wedding chasing down details and trying to keep things on schedule. Anita handled it all. Every detail and extra touches were taken care of so we didn't have to worry about a thing, other than having the time of our lives! Anita also was very kind and helpful to all of our friends and family.
Anita took the time to meet us at the venue and again at our home to make sure everything was perfectly coordinated.
We would 110% recommend Anita. We cannot thank her enough for going the extra mile and making our wedding perfect!
A STARR Events's reply:Jon & Alma, Thank you so much for the wonderful review- YOU made my job easy! Alma, you and Jon were so organized and communicative- a joy to work with. The elements were on our side, the weather was perfect, The Ranch Club catering staff were stellar (the dinner buffet was delicious) and all of your chosen vendors were amazing to work with! I am happy to have been a part of your special day. Best Wishes and Much Love to you both!
