    Karen is amazing!!!!

    Karen made sure that my reception went smoothly and did a fantastic job at it. Working with her really took the stress off of me and i knew that i was in good hands. She made sure everything looked perfect at the reception and even met with me a few times before to get to know each other and walk through the venue. She really went above and beyond! I loved working with her and would 100% recommend California Dreamin Weddings and Events to any future brides looking for a coordinator. Thank you California Dreamin Weddings and Events for helping me with my dream wedding.

    Nacy wedding

    With all the chaos in 2020 we had to change our wedding venue 28 days prior to wedding date. We would have never been able to manage everything without Ali and Karen. They were wonderful and helped with every little detail that we may have overlooked. Even down to me forgetting my flower girls basket and Ali shopping for one hours before the wedding! They were perfect!

    Leave it to the Professional!

    Never a worry with Karen in charge! She was professional, friendly, and knowledgable. She respected our choices, but encouraged us to follow her lead. Her experience helped us relax and enjoy our wedding.
