    My husband and I are both medical students across the country, so planning a wedding several time zones away was going to be challenging. Additionally, I am a self-described personality type "AAA" so I knew I wanted to be as involved as I could in the wedding planning process but also have someone on my team that I could entrust with all other details when my wedding could not be prioritized. As a thorough individual, I wanted to do my due diligence in researching a wedding planner who would protect my vision, understand my neuroses, and be flexible with a demanding schedule. In the end I made a spreadsheet of 46 wedding planners - spoke to most of them over the phone and eventually landed on Duncan Reyes. Duncan was truly the brains behind our entire wedding- not to mention a complete genius when it comes to knowing who's who in the Bay Area wedding scene. In the end Duncan did so much more than plan our wedding; he introduced us to vendors that I never would have found, answered thousands of e-mails (responding to all of them with lightning speed!), and kept meticulous records of budgets, payments, and meetings. To those of you weighing whether or not to have a wedding planner - it was an absolute must for us and really allowed us to enjoy the wedding planning process and most importantly our wedding day. Duncan Reyes truly has our highest recommendation and is a pleasure to work with. He coordinated our wedding, dealt with crazy nuances (and personalities), and handled all stress and anxiety with poise and grace.

    Several weeks have gone by and we are still getting endless compliments on our wedding and wedding weekend. Duncan absolutely knows how to make YOUR special vision come to life in the most vibrant and fabulous form. Most importantly, my husband and I were beyond floored our wedding day and would not have changed a thing.

    I can't recommend Duncan enough!!!

    When my husband I got engaged, I knew that I needed the help of a Wedding Coordinator. I spoke to several other Wedding Coordinators before meeting with Duncan. The others had romantic ideas and emotional outpourings, but I didn't need someone to hold my hand through the process. I needed someone like me. Someone who embraces the power of endless e-mails, adores their own OCD, respects generosity, practices gratitude, and understands that business is business and love is love -- even when the two go hand-in-hand.

    Duncan was a savior during this process. I admire his kind heart, his keen advice, and his overwhelming patience (and I know I tested that with my many many e-mails, questions and changes). His connections and recommendations speak highly of his character.

    I've was consistently impressed with the vendors he recommended. They have kind hearts and did admirable work, just like him.

    He was early to every meeting. He responded quickly to every questions or request. He went above and beyond what I hired him for and exceeded my expectations.

    When I look back at this wedding, I will always think of Duncan. He was the dark horse. He was the man behind the whole occasion. He is the reason that my husband and I will remember our wedding day as the start of our lives together.

    To Duncan--- From the very bottom of my heart, and from Kelvin's heart as well, THANK YOU! I don't know how you do what you do - but you do it with grace and style.

    We first heard about Duncan through rave reviews from friends and co-workers. When we met him in person, we discovered first hand his knowledge, professionalism and care that so many had described.
    In our experience, we hired Duncan before we even set a date. He was instrumental when working with our vendors on finalizing contracts. He made things easy for us and always had our best interest in mind. Trust is key when working with a wedding planner for the biggest day of your life. Through months of planning, Duncan was there at every meeting, early, with his organized wedding binder and always with a smile. He had amazing recommendations - since he is a pro, he has a huge network of vendors, that have become friends, in the wedding business who are equally skilled and great to work with. He was also very open to work with any vendors who were new to his network of friends - basically Duncan can make anything happen and work with anyone in the business! It's an amazing trait! Being well respected in the wedding business, you will find a lot of vendors that actually look forward to working with him!

    There were many moments where I felt Duncan went above and beyond his duties as a wedding planner and on the day of the wedding I was carefree and able to enjoy every minute knowing that with Duncan, my groom and I were in great hands.

    Having Duncan as our wedding planner was the best thing we could have done for ourselves in the planning of our big day and now we can definitely say that with Duncan, your not just getting a wedding planner - you are gaining a fabulous friend!
