    Couldn’t be better!

    Paula is truly incredible and exceeded all expectations for us as a wedding planner. We worked with her for over a year planning our wedding and we couldn’t have imagined doing it without her. Paula continuously goes above and beyond and makes you feel as if you are her only client. She is responsible and very communicative, quickly answering any questions that came up over the year. She has been working in the industry in orange county for over a decade and seems to know and get along with everyone. She was a constant advocate for us dealing with vendors and making sure our needs were met first. She also worked very well balancing family relationships throughout our year of planning and especially on our wedding day. I was nervous for the wedding day because of my family dynamic and Paula took over everything, so I was stress-free. My friends and family who interacted with her on our wedding day were blown away by how kind and calm she was, while still making sure everything went according to plan. She has such great energy during a time that can be stressful and difficult ( and fun) and we are so grateful to have found her. I would recommend Paula to any bride or groom getting married in orange county.

    We cannot thank Paula enough for all the effort and expertise she brought to our special day. It was a fairy tale wedding that most could only dream of having for themselves, and we still can't believe it was ours. From the moment we checked into the Montage on Friday night until we checked out on Sunday morning it was completely perfect - mostly due to Paula's management. Every vendor she recommended delivered, logistics were flawless, and every guest had fun. So many guests have told us it was the "best event" or "best wedding" they have ever attended - everything "made sense," was "on time," turned out "unbelievably beautiful." She makes it happen!

    Paula was everything we could have asked for in a wedding planner, and MORE! Our wedding day turned out perfectly and we could not have done it without Paula. She was always there for us when we needed her, helped us choose great vendors, kept everything very organized and easy to understand and follow, and made sure everything went as planned on the big day. We did not have to worry about anything on our big day, we knew Paula had everything under control at all times. She was professional and fun and so easy to work with. Her experience, creativity, and expertise in the wedding industry is unmatched. She made us feel we were her only clients from the day we hired her. We're so happy to have worked with Paula for our dream wedding and we HIGHLY recommend her, especially for Pelican Hill, where we were married.
