We had the pleasure of working with Lisa this past November. We hired her to do the month of/day of coordinating for our wedding in Sonoma. From our first phone conversation I knew she was the right fit for us! She understood exactly what I was looking for and I felt like we clicked over the phone.
She came to our tasting in August and it was lovely to have her there. It gave us a chance to go over all the details and I felt so confident turning everything over to her from there. She took care of all our rentals as well as contracts with other vendors. She created the perfect timeline for the wedding and we were thrilled with how well everything flowed. She also ran our rehearsal the evening before the wedding like a champ and was able to wrangle all of our family with ease.
Lisa was incredibly responsive and very organized. More than that, she just has a quality that makes you feel calm and well taken care of. Our wedding went off without a hitch and I would recommend Lisa to anyone – start to finish she was a true professional and we’re so glad she was a part of our special day.

Best money we spent on the wedding!
We booked Katy on a recommendation from our photographer for the Wedding Coordination package, and it was the best money we spent on our wedding!Sent on 11/20/2019
Katy gave us countless vendor recommendations, which saved us so much time on researching vendors, and they all turned out to be amazing! Our biggest mistake was not using a shuttle company that she had recommended — the one we originally booked ended up completely falling through (3 days before our wedding!), and Katy swiftly came to the rescue, helping us book another shuttle transportation company on that same day she discovered the issue. She seriously saved the day! We also had a challenging venue coordinator to work with, and she took over all of the communication with them to ensure every single detail would be taken care of (which also took a lot of the stress off of us).
During the entire year leading up to our wedding, Katy was was super quick to respond to countless emails, giving us advice on every little detail, and even reminding us to think about things that hadn’t occurred to us. She also created the entire timeline for the day, which was the most intimidating part of the planning process for us, and everything went so smoothly on our wedding day!
We are so grateful for Katy’s constant support throughout the entire process — she is a true professional and just an overall wonderful person, and we cannot recommend her enough!

Unparalleled experience in the industry!
We were referred to Lisa by our venue, Olympia's Valley Esate, for day-of coordination. She was affordable, personable, and easy to work with, from the very beginning when we first met her about a year before our big day. Throughout the year, she kept us updated with tasks to do, gave us countless budget tips and vendor recommendations, and allowed us to bounce any question off of her. She responds immediately and is very detail oriented. Her google sheets and docs (budget and actuals, timeline, vendor info, floorplans/layouts, etc.) are very concise and easy to use and follow. We opened them nearly every day to keep us in check with updating/adding in vendor comparisons, payments, etc. We had budget breakdowns and timelines from other married couples but those were nowhere as nicely organized as hers.Sent on 10/02/2019
Lisa has a wealth of experience, especially in the Sonoma/Napa county and the majority of our vendors were referred by her or she's worked with them in the past. Coincidentally, the one other time that our band (Downbeat LA) travelled to OVE, just happened to also be a past wedding that Lisa coordinated for, so she dug up the old layout to see how we could fit in all our guests. She followed up with each of the vendors for an in-person POC and arrival time, and worked her magic behind the scenes so we wouldn't need to stress out weeks prior. For the day of, while we were getting ready with the rest of the wedding party, her and her assistant set up all the decor that we dropped off the day before and arranged it according to photos and ideas that we sent her. They also stayed back to help pack and load up all our decor into 3 cars so we could spend time saying goodbye to our guests.
The thing that stood out most was her unparalleled experience with working at OVE, so much that it was obvious that OVE trusted her. She coordinated with all the vendors to let them know where and when to set up, and offered suggestions of where things should be and how it should be laid out. Lisa was a pleasure to work with and we're glad that we chose someone who knows and understands the business inside out.
