Words cannot express my gratitude for Claudia. My wedding was something out of a magazine! It was the PERFECT wedding and it's all because of her. I came to her with a simple idea and she worked her magic and brought it to life. If you think you don't need a wedding planner, think again and if you think you can go with just any one THINK AGAIN!Sent on 09/04/2019

Hoste Events Wedding Planner AMAZING!!!!
I hit the jackpot with planners for my July destination wedding in Santa Barbara, CA. I was referred to Claudia from my brother as she planned his wedding. I interviewed several other planners and in my initial meeting I found her to be the most knowledgable, professional and customer focused. I walked away from my initial meeting with her VERY impressed, especially after speaking to several other highly recommended planners. I signed up for Claudia's "day of planning" service, however she did WAY more than day of planning. Most day of planner's you can't start engaging until 30 days before your event. With Claudia I was able to communicate as much as I needed throughout the entire process, in fact she asked to be included in all aspects as I worked through planning my wedding. This way she had a strong grasp on all the contracts I had, what vendors I was working with, etc. I found this especially helpful to me as this was a destination wedding for me, so Claudia gave me a lot of insights into things that I just wouldn't have otherwise. Claudia as a planner is extremely customer focused, and its evident that she is YOUR advocate during the entire process. In fact I had a some troubles with a caterer I had hired. I was very stressed, and talked to Claudia about the situation. Claudia stepped in, told me not to worry and took care of it, thus relieving SO much stress I had over the situation.Sent on 08/15/2019
Claudia is also VERY detailed oriented and thinks of EVERYTHING. Originally, my now husband and I wanted to have a beach wedding. She kindly talked through how some of the logistical problems, and in fact she checked the tide chart and found that during the time we wanted to have our wedding the beach would be under water... so instead we did our rehearsal on the beach and ceremony at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. It was her forward thinking that really saved us from having to scramble.
Claudia also has an awesome design eye. She first really listens to you, what your thoughts are, tries to get a good sense of what your style is. She asks good questions and really thinks about YOU, not what's trendy, not what she likes, but YOU. She also has a way of making suggestions and guidance in a kind, thoughtful and insightful way, and even offers suggestions to make you think in different ways which is cool as that opens up to things you didn't even know you liked which was cool :).
Claudia repeatedly earned my trust through the planning process, which helped as I got on the plane for our wedding. I got to sit back and enjoy the entire weekend with family and friends, because I had complete faith that everything was under control. Once the day arrived, to me everything was PERFECT! The timeline that she created was relaxed, we had a couple small issues with table seating charts not fitting in the frames I got, but she took them out of my hands and said I GOT this. She designed this BEAUTIFUL spray of candles and extra foliage, and bridesmaids bouquets on the fountain behind our sweetheart table. She printed on her own menu's, brought her own cake stands to make a gorgeous cupcake display, and provided beautiful table numbers (saving me money in rentals, and printing).
I just can't say enough wonderful things about Claudia. I felt like I had the dream team of planners, and HIGHLY recommend her, if you want a relaxed, fun and well designed event!!!!

Where do we even start with Claudia?!? She is absolutely amazing!! Not only as a person but wow wedding coordinating/planning is truly what she is meant to do! She made our whole wedding experience perfect! Claudia took the stress and worry out of wedding planning. She was with us every step of the way. We always felt like we could rely on her for anything. From her design ideas, vendor recommendations, organization, calm, cool and collective personality, she is outstanding!! For any bride and groom looking for someone to make your wedding experience the best, look no further Claudia is your coordinator!Sent on 09/06/2019
WE love working with Claudia. She is calm and respectful and treats her brides and us, kindly. When a planner is organized and is a leader it makes a huge difference in how the experience of the wedding effects everyone. 100% would recommend her!
I have been planning and performing weddings for 45 years. So, I do have a wide basis for making comparisons. As a retired Catholic Priest and Non-Denominational Minister, I have participated in thousands of weddings. Hoste Events is among the very best and I highly recommend them to all brides and grooms. They are wonderful to work with and they keep your wishes foremost in their plans.
Claudia, of Hoste Events, was such a delightful planner to work with! She communicated so well with everybody, and helped create a seamless event for a well deserving couple. Everybody had a great time, and all the personal touches she did to help create an environment that was so unique to her couple. I would love to work with her again!
