Sonja was a pleasure to work with!
Planning a destination wedding from Texas was harder than I anticipated. Bringing Sonja onboard for our intimate wedding was the best decision I made hands down! She was able to turn my vision into a reality by bringing in the perfect vendors to make it all come together. Her experience and expertise definitely showed.
Wedding day we were able to sit back, relax and enjoy our beautiful day with friends and family thanks to Sonja!Sent on 07/24/2021

Sonja is the best
Sonja is incredible. I live in So Cal so in planning an intimate Napa wedding, I needed help. From the venue (Brix), to the officiant (Kimberly Thompson), the photographer (T.J. Salsman) and the flowers and cake, everything was absolutely perfect. Words cannot adequately express sufficient thanks to Sonja for making our day amazing.Sent on 05/06/2021

Great Experience - would do it again in a heartbeat
So happy we met Sonja. As Napa was a destination wedding for us, we needed someone who was knowledgeable in the area, local vendors and hotels. We knew when we met her that she was the one. Our first two days were filled with so many venue options. Everything was carefully planned and organized from the moment we said yes (to her.)
Over the months, we worked with her from a distance yet we never felt like we were disconnected from anything. She accommodated all our requests, introduced us to quality vendors and relieved us from a lot of potential stressful situations. Sonja always had our best interest in mind and worked hard to make our day perfect. She had everything broken down for a bride who had no clue what came next and she made sure everything was thought about and handled when the time came. She made sure we had our marriage license two months before the wedding, and if it wasn’t for that, we would not have been able to get married. Little did we know, Covid was coming to shut everything down.
Two months before our big day, the pandemic hit and uprooted all our plans. She handled all the communication with the vendors, dealing with canceling, restructuring and re-envisioning everything. We still had our wedding on the same date, at the same time and in the same place. Following the county guidelines, our two hundred guest wedding went down to a socially distanced seven. She worked extra hard to make sure it was still beautiful, intimate and very special for us.
We highly recommend Sonja as a wedding planner or even any kind of event planner. Her knowledge, expertise and super fun, friendly personality make her the best choice for anyone looking to plan any kind of special day.

Intimate Weddings Napa Valley's reply:You two were the highlight of my year! Thank you so much for this incredible review. Made me cry. xo
I've had the pleasure of photographing several of Sonja's weddings and she plans a beautiful experience. Most importantly she listens to her couple's needs and creates a wedding perfectly for them. As a photographer I notice the details. Most importantly I notice the bride's reaction to the setting Sonja creates and it's always one of joy and happiness. A destination wedding almost always requires a professional planner to help navigate the sometimes confusing process. Sonja knows the ins and outs of the Napa Valley and can plan your wedding beautifully.
I have worked with Sonja for years. She brings such life to any event; it is so clear why the couples that work with her love her. From a vendor's standpoint, she is quick to return calls and messages and is always on the ball. I'm always happy to see her name pop up in my inbox and she is always a pleasure to work with. I look forward to working many more events with her in the future!
I have worked with Sonja Beazley Burch of Intimate Weddings Napa Valley, for 18 plus years and I am hear to say " She exceeds all my expectations of what a wedding professional should be"! She is detailed, organized, talented and has given me the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing couples of my entire career. Her personality is infectious and also a great contribution to the success of her business. I look forward to many more weddings!
