    Simply Amazing Experience!

    My fiancee and I have been working with Jackie Stiphout planning our wedding and I cannot sing her praises enough. She is simply a joy to work with and incredibly helpful. She has vast amounts of expertise in all things wedding event related and is incredibly creative, helping us make something truly genuine and unique for our day. She has thorough insights and amazing vendor recommendations (to fit all sorts of budgets). She's also highly organized, super supportive with consistent communication and a sweet personality to boot! I feel like I'm getting to plan our special day with my best friend. Simply can't thank her enough for all the incredible support she's given us to create an unforgettable experience for our wedding.

    The best team!

    Josh and Sam were not only such a delight to work with, but made the rest of our "planning" process seem so easy!! I always found myself to be super organized and didn't realize how much I needed their help. Especially amidst a pandemic, last minute venue change, etc. what was turning into a nightmare ended up being a dream come true thanks to Josh and Sam for the most amazing support to get us through THE most special day :))) I could not recommend them more!!

    Best of the best!

    I know this blurb will not do my experience with Golden Coast Planning justice but I'll try.. Josh, Jackie and team are an incredible group of knowledgable, experienced, PATIENT, amazing people. They truly care about executing a beautiful event and my wedding was just that. I couldn't have asked for a better more supportive team. I am a type A personality and I had questions about absolutely everything. They were quick to answer and always willing to help. No stone was left unturned! The whole planning process was so fun. No one works harder than this team. By the end of my wedding weekend, all of my guests were raving about Josh & Jackie. Do yourself a huge favor, hire GCP.
