Diane and her staff are amazing! From the beginning of the planning process she was so helpful and responsive. Diane was very clear about the services she provides and all of the costs were clearly broken down for us. The weekend of the wedding, everything came together perfectly. Diane and her staff handled all of the details, large and small, and I was able to relax and enjoy the day. And it was the best day!
Do not hesitate to hire Diane Allen/ Big Sur Weddings for your event, it will be the most wonderful, beautiful day of your life!
Thanks again Diane!

My husband and I planned our Big Sur wedding from South Florida and hiring Diane was the best decision we made. We debated about hiring a wedding planner at all to keep costs down. But within a few short days, we knew we made the right decision. I could not imagine planning the day without her. She was easy to communicate with and on top of every detail. She connected us with other amazing vendors who helped make our day exactly what we wanted, and more. It's obvious that Diane loves what she does, loves Big Sur, and loves her clients. Our day was absolutely perfect and we have Diane to thank for that.

We had a wonderful experience working with Diane Allen! We are from Pennsylvania and wanted to have our 'camping' wedding in the Big Sur. Our wedding was on the small side, however when you are trying to coordinate 22 out of town guests, it can be very overwhelming. Diane was able to provide recommendations on all vendors and help us every step of the way. She embraced our vision, and it made our day so special. Diane put me in contact with all our vendors. When one of our vendors tried to pull a time switch on us, she was on top of it! I did not even have to handle anything. I was able to focus on my family and spending an amazing weekend in the Big Sur getting married to my best friend! Thank you to Diane and her team. If we ever get to do it again - she is our first call!
Absolutely one of the best Coordinators I've ever worked with. Keeping great attention to detail while staying on the timeline. Diane and her crew and completely professional and easy to work with. I hope to continue work with Diane and her company for years to come. -Tim Wilkerson Share The Road Videography
