Vineyard Wedding Planning
Claudia and her team at Hoste Events are the most amazing wedding planners, and I can't recommend working with them enough. Claudia helped me plan a 200 person wedding at my family's private vineyard home in Santa Barbara County. Planning a wedding at a private home comes with a unique set of challenges, but there was nothing Claudia wasn't prepared for, which made the entire event so seamless. We had to bring in everything, which meant working with about 12 different vendors, and Claudia kept everyone organized, made sure we got everyone paid in a timely fashion and was available any time someone needed to do a walk through on the property prior to the event. We also had a live band, and Claudia came up with some really fun ideas for dance floor props, including confetti canons. Most importantly, the day of, Claudia made sure we had time to ourselves to step back and enjoy the moment, and also that we always had plenty of champagne in our glasses. I wish we could do it all over again!

I had the honor and pleasure of working with Claudia as my day-of coordinator. Claudia is different from other coordinators in that she supports you from the moment you retain her through your day-of, even if you’ve only retained her for day-of. She is extremely responsive and helpful. Honestly, I had a perfect wedding and a lot of that I credit to Claudia’s advice and attention to detail!!
Claudia also has a great eye for design, is well-connected and truly goes beyond basic day-of planning to create a truly cohesive event. I am SO happy to have worked with Claudia.

Could not recommend Hoste Events more!! Claudia was amazing to work with. Our wedding was a destination wedding in Santa Barbara, and I was planning from the east coast. Having boots on the ground was worth every penny. Right from the beginning, she understood my vision, supplied checklists, timelines and budget templates, and helped to keep me super organized with all vendor contracts, etc. Another big plus is Claudia's great contacts and relationships all over Santa Barbara. She provided excellent referrals. When we arrived in Santa Barbara for the wedding weekend, I literally worried about nothing. She has an extremely positive and calming demeanor throughout the process but especially on the day of. Claudia was on top of everything and really made our wedding truly special and drama free.
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!
