Meg is the secret sauce to an SB wedding!

Meg was the best! A true industry veteran, she knew all the best vendors and 'hacks' to make our wedding weekend perfect. Whenever I had a crazy idea, she found a way to make it happen -- all with a smile on her face. Meg and her team made everything seem effortless (which I know it wasn't) and I'm so glad she was part of our special day. We did the full service package which I recommend!

So Thankful For Meg & Team for Creating our Dream Wedding!!!

My husband and I got married in September at the Hilton Beachfront Resort in Santa Barbara, and we were in awe with the way our wedding day turned out, and how smooth Meg made the planning process for us. She also planned our Rehearsal dinner + Welcome Party at Margerum Wine Conpany, and that was absolutely lovely as well.

From the start of the consultation, she really puts effort into getting to know you both as individuals, and together as a couple. This is really helpful for the planning process and helps guide you in delegation of topics/tasks amongst yourselves and who she should reach out to depending on the what info she needs. ie my husband is more logistics and business, whereas I’m more interested in creative/design.

She is organized (heck yes to the spreadsheets!), detail-oriented, honest, understanding, patient (I’m the type who needs someone kindly keeping me on track for this kind of thing), and just all around fun to chat with. She has great recommendations for vendors and really is connected!

She really works on ensuring it’s YOUR special day and is flexible in going out of her way to make sure your dream wedding happens within your vision, culture, budget, (even family and guest opinions and logistics)

We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for wedding or event planning services in the greater Santa Barbara area.

Thank you a million, Meg!

Best Day Ever

It's been over a year since our wedding with Meg and we only grow more and more grateful for her and her team as time goes on! We have been to several weddings since and are so happy to report that not once has something come up where we think "we should've done this better at our wedding."

We did the middle package with Meg which was perfect for us. I definitely wanted to play an active role in the planning so this worked out well for us. Meg was always there to send us off in the right direction and get us a head start. She didn't do everything for us (as expected) but having her to promptly answer and questions and bounce ideas back and forth with saved us a ton of time!

For reference, we had a substantial part in the day-to-day planning while both working full-time and attending school full-time. So it's a lot of work but totally doable if you stay organized and manage your time properly!

We highly recommend working with Meg and her middle of the road package if you are ready to put in work as well. She has so much knowledge and expertise with things that are so often overlooked, like general timeline and making sure guests have a pleasant and smooth experience at your big day.

Overall we loved our experience and would recommend that everyone read the fine print closely and discuss roles and responsibilities so it's made clear from the start what you're signing up for. If you sign up for a middle of the road package, that's what you're going to get and it's perfect if you want a substantial and active role in planning your perfect day!
