Bari is Amazing!
We recently got married in San Francisco, CA and absolutely could not have done any of it without Bari Sherman!!!Sent on 07/29/2020
But, let me start from the beginning...
A year before our June 200 person wedding in Sonoma, CA we hired Bari, from the start she made what could have been a stressful planning process into something enjoyable for both my husband and myself.
From providing a checklist of things we needed to do throughout the planning process, to helping with vendor recommendations, contract negotiations, layout & design, minute-by-minute flow on the day of and anything else we could possibly need help with. Bari was there and with a smile on her face!
Then the pandemic hit and our wedding day as we had envisioned it, was not going to happen.
Two months before our June 27th date, with Bari’s support and assistance we made the difficult decision to not only cut our guest list from 200 to 26 but to also push the date to July 18th. The stress of replanning a smaller intimate wedding includes so many moving parts, but Bari kept us organized, on track and did so with ease. She renegotiated with all our vendors, cancelled those we did not need and held our hand on this emotional roller-coaster.
2 weeks prior to our wedding, cases in California started rising, risk was high and our little wedding in Sonoma was not looking likely. So again, we had a change of plans and with Bari’s help we planned the most perfect socially distant picnic wedding in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA!
From the moment we made the decision, Bari went into crisis mode and handled everything so beautifully. She renegotiated contracts for vendors we still needed, handled credits/refunds for vendors we no longer needed, readjusted our day of timelines, took ownership of communication with our new ceremony venue (SF Botanical Garden) and helped with the design layout for the picnic, all while putting NO stress on us during an already stressful time.
Bari is dependable, creative, professional and all-around amazing! We truly can't say thank you to her enough times. Being a bride and groom during a pandemic is not easy but with Bari’s help, we pulled off the best day of our lives and we truly could not have done it without her!

The absolute best!
Quit your search and hire Bari Elexa Events! There is nobody better than Bari. Her style. Her organization. Her sweet, cheerful, yet calming personality. And most importantly, her impeccable eye. She executed the wedding of our dreams! We were able to enjoy each moment because we knew Bari had every detail covered.Sent on 11/11/2020

Pandemic Wedding Planner Extraordinaire
Let me just start this by saying, Bari can add Disaster Wedding Planner Extraordinaire to her resume after having had the most unprecedented and hopefully last pandemic wedding season. 2020 has really put everyone to the test and Bari handled every challenge with grace and confidence. Not a week went by where my now husband and I didn't say "I don't know, let's ask Bari!" She was such a bright spot in our lives during this uncertain time. To share our unique (or not so unique) story. My husband is French and all of his friends and family are living in France. This is normally not an issue, but when borders were closed and even close family members were separated, this became challenging to plan a wedding. Bari was with us every step of the way to provide us with empathy, problem-solving, and hope.
She helped us navigate when our original vineyard wedding venue asked us to postpone...and then to postpone again. She was there for us the help plan a micro wedding. She was there for us just to listen to our wedding day fears. Bari did an exceptional job at orchestrating our (at this point) last minute picnic in the park micro-wedding. While it was not the wedding we had imagined with all of our friends and family members in attendance, it was still beautiful and a lot more memorable than if we would have gotten the fairytale wedding we had envisioned pre-COVID.
Bari is extremely professional, pleasant to work with, and has a great sense of who her client is and what they need from her. She did an exceptional job at our micro wedding and we are looking forward to working with her again in 2021 when we have the big party.Sent on 10/09/2020
