    Wedding Dream Team

    If you want to have a wedding in the Carmel/Big Sur area, look no further than Heidi and her team at Coastside Couture. We hired them to plan a complex, outdoor, cliffside wedding in Big Sur on a private property, and they not only made our dream wedding come to life, but they worked with us to create something better than we could have ever imagined. Heidi is both visionary and practical, experienced and well-connected, creative and playful, extremely organized and on top of it, generous and fun - in short, she is just SO good at her job and everything you would want in a wedding planner. For our wedding, she did everything perfectly - from coordinating generators being brought in so that we could play music in a field with no power, to working with me on designing the most gorgeous tables and florals. Everyone on her team brings this same energy, professionalism, sense of joy, and total "get it done" attitudes as well. I miss working with Coastside Couture and am so deeply grateful for all they did for us. I also want to note that they navigated the complexities of the pandemic with us with the utmost optimism, creativity, generosity, grace, and kindness. I really cannot imagine going through the experience of a postponed 2020 wedding, which was held a year later, with any other team. These are your people if you want your Carmel or Big Sur dream wedding!!! Cannot recommend these rockstar women highly enough.

    Efficient, strong wedding planners!

    These ladies are absolute BOSSES when it comes to wedding planning. We chose them because we liked how direct and honest they were with us about everything from our budget to our vendor choices to the actual day-of execution. Our venue presented some tough logistical challenges and the Coastside ladies handled it with grace and skill.

    Okay, so after our wedding, my wife and I are basically ready to move to California and try to become best friends with Karissa. She and her team (Liz was the one we worked with most) were just amazing, from start to finish. First off, they are exceptionally responsive and on top of things, which is not very common for Santa Cruz. Second, they completely got what we were going for, and all of their vendor suggestions were perfect. We literally did not have to talk to a second option for any vendor, and every single one delivered exactly what we had hoped for. Our wedding was absolutely amazing.

    I could not more highly recommend Karissa, Liz, and the team at Coastside Couture. Our only regret is that we don't get to keep working with them.

Coastside Couture is the best of the best in the Monterey Bay! I've had the pleasure of working with all the girls at Coastside on different weddings. Each one of them has always been on it from beginning to end; one step ahead of you so that you can relax on your wedding day and enjoy your friends and family. They don't just take care of all the logistics and what if's but knock it out of the park with the decor and styling every time.
