Great Customer Service

AYS planning did a great job running our wedding day. We hired them to do our "month of" planning & they orchestrated the details of how the actual day would run. Everything went smoothly and I am grateful that I had so much help from them. Highly recommend!

Day of Coordination

The name doesn’t lie! Diana and Jackie were truly at my side throughout this whole process! I am so thankful to have found the perfect coordinators for such a big day! Diana got in touch with all my vendors, organized and sent out the final timeline. I did not have to worry about a thing other than providing her with the info she needed to execute and plan the perfect wedding! As for the day of, Jackie was on top of it! The wedding went so smoothly that I didn’t need much, but whenever and if I did, Jackie was right there! Everything that was discussed prior to the wedding was executed perfectly and Jackie is a true professional. Having her at the reception facilitated the flow of the events that even my guests expressed how fun, organized and smooth the day was. Diana and Jackie understand the nature of the business and will go over and beyond to work with you! This was money well spent!

Diana and her team are wonderful! Organized, professional, friendly, and they really care about their couples. Diana has that perfect blend of directing and guiding without being bossy. She can handle a very large, very complicated wedding without breaking a sweat. If your wedding is in the San Diego area, Diana is the way to go. She's worth her weight in gold!
