Arlene Marcos planned our wedding and greatly exceeded even our heightened expectations. It seemed flawless, everything was planned and executed on brilliantly. People in our wedding party said they had never seen such a detailed timeline, leaving nothing to chance, and tight organization. She managed all aspects of the wedding. Vendors, venue and contacting all wedding party members to make sure everyone was prepared. Given our busy lives and travel schedules, she constantly looked for new ways to help us for the wedding. On the wedding day, she had everything meticulously planned, even providing water and snacks for the wedding party during the day between photo shoots. I would certainly recommend her as a wedding planner, Arlene is the best !

Arlene was absolutely fabulous as our wedding coordinator! She was extremely organized and made us feel as ease throughout the process of planning our wedding. She helped us stay on top of deadlines to make sure everything would run smoothly, and helped us think of many details that otherwise likely would have been forgotten. We felt so relaxed on our wedding day knowing that we were in the best hands and that everything was being taken care of. Arlene struck a perfect balance of calm energy and efficient productivity, and she helped make our day so special! Thank you!

Look no further!! Arlene and her team with Ah New Beginnings, was the best decision we made for our wedding.

Arlene is all about organization, communication, and attention to details. She is accommodating, attentive/timely (quick with responding), and overall - VERY on top of it! It is obvious that Arlene has many years of experience and really is passionate in what she does. Arlene is great and so were her assistants. Shout out to Ana Rita for all her help keeping everything run smoothly on day of & for being soo sweet (: Thank You!

During the whole planning process, we were mighty impressed with how ahead of the game Arlene was. Arlene sent us with friendly reminders to ensure everything was taken care of. She was many steps ahead, not to the point where it was stressful, but just enough to keep us on track with making sure things got done.

The timeline drafting was extremely helpful, even so were the checklists and spreadsheets. Arlene guided us through everything, it was all straight forward & made things organized, thus less stressful.

The spreadsheets were PERFECT tools to help plan our wedding. All details for our big day, everything you can imagine all in one place (spreadsheets). These were constructed over time by gathering info little by little.

It amazes us how on top of it all Arlene was, from the planning & on our wedding day!

We had nothing to worry about on the day of. We were comfortable because we built tremendous trust in Arlene and on the day of, we just let her handle all of the details. Arlene and her team took charge, it worked out so beautifully.

Again, we plead you to stop your wedding planner/coordinator search now & let Ah New Beginnings take care of your worries. It’s true, as the motto says “you dream it, we plan it” you WILL enjoy it.

Professional Network & Endorsements

Arlene and her team are a photographer's best friend! I have worked with Arlene for a few weddings now, and I am always pleased by how organized and accommodating she is. There is never a moment during the wedding day where I don't know what is going on or where I should be. She is on top of everything! She makes herself available to everyone who has questions but also is not afraid to get her hands dirty. You can often find her carrying heavy tables or large decorations. If you want to want to have the most well organized and smoothest wedding ever, then Arlene of Ah...New Beginnings is who you should call today!

I had the pleasure of working with Arlene at a beautiful wedding at the Berkeley Botanical gardens. The wedding involved 4 locations throughout the day, and Arlene organized it all so well; the day was a great success!

Hello, It would be nice opening for us if you are willing to endorse us also. We have just look at your profile, It is quite amazing. Wish you all the best. Thank you very much.

I am the owner of bluEDGE Productions. We've worked with Arlene of Ah...New Beginnings on several occasions. I'm so confident in her work that I hired for my own wedding a year ago. It was not until such time I realized how much time and dedication she truly puts into her clients! Hiring a wedding planner is definitely an extra expense to budget, but after my own wedding experience (even though I've been Djing wedding for over 15 years...) I truly realized all the nuances that goes into making sure the day of the wedding is stress free and memorable. I know that would not have been possible without Arlene's help as our coordinator. She is definitely one of the most organized and dedicated professional I've ever met. If you want to make sure your wedding is a total success, you need to her!

Arlene is a great coordinator that knows the timeline of the event like the back of her hand! She has a calm, caring personality...great person to have by you on your big day!
