Best Wedding Designers/Producers in the Field!
If you are looking for the best wedding or event designers/producers on the planet, then stop your search right now because I promise you will find that in Josefina Events! Laura and her fantastic team (including Dana, Bryce, and others) designed and produced our wedding and they could not have done a more spectacular job! My husband and I recommend them wholeheartedly to plan your wedding and/or special event.
When we met Laura (Josefina Events Founder and CEO), it was immediately clear that she is brilliant, engaging, and kind. She exudes creativity, vision, and the energy it takes to accomplish any dream you might have. It didn't take more than a couple of conversations and review of her outstanding work to realize that she and her team were the wedding producers of our dreams! We never regretted the decision for an instant.
Peter and I could not have made a better decision. At every turn, Laura and her team made the process fun, rewarding, and relaxing. She took the inspiration we gave her and turned it into an incredibly luxurious, beautiful, and fun weekend that was a joy for us and all of our guests! Throughout the process, the Josefina Events team introduced us to an A-list group of vendors who made the event planning a breeze. She and her team turned our inspiration into a reality that FAR exceeded expectations, and we truly had the wedding weekend of our dreams! She also respected our budget throughout the process, which was so appreciated. Most importantly, Laura and her team became valued friends throughout the process. For example, she and her team found creative and beautiful ways to honor the spirit of my late mother throughout the wedding weekend. We truly connected and she understood how much my mom means to be, and that was reflected in such moving and tasteful ways at our wedding.
Josefina Events is the BEST wedding design and production team in Coachella Valley (and quite frankly, anywhere!). We can't recommend them highly enough to plan and produce your special day!Sent on 01/17/2020

The best ladies to work with!
Dana was a god send on our wedding day! I opted for the month of wedding planning option since I was taking care of a lot of the pre-planning logistics myself, but really needed someone who could take over and handle all vendor comms, timeline planning and day of coordination and I am SO GLAD I did! Dana jumped on board about a month out from our wedding, we handled mostly everything over email and it was so easy because she was so organized and detail oriented. She and Kristin made our wedding day seamless and stress free, even when our flower delivery person was late, they kept things calm and more importantly made me feel like they were on top of it and had it handled. Both Dana and Kristin were true professionals and helped with every detail the day of our wedding, even helping to manage my crazy foreign family. We could not have been more happy with the service we got and I would highly recommend them to any future bride.Sent on 01/07/2020

Best Wedding Decision
Hiring Josefina was the best wedding decision I made. My husband and I wanted to get married at a house, so the wedding was very DIY. Three months before our wedding, we hadn't done much and were struggling to find time to research and vet the vendors we'd need (eg. table/chair rentals, bathroom rentals, caterers, DJs, buses to take guests to/from the venue and on and on). We were VERY stressed. I found Josefina online and their reviews were perfect, so I scheduled a time to speak with Laura and I immediately felt relieved. She talked me through the different options and it was clear because of the time frame and the DIY nature of the wedding we'd need full-service planning. And I'm so happy we did it! Jackquelyn did the most amazing job. She walked us through every decision, clearly explained the pros and cons of each option, and made recommendations (which were all spot on). She set a realistic budget from the outset, was very clear about invoicing and budgeting, and helped us stay within our budget. She was there on day-of to coordinate all the vendors and it took all the stress out of the day. I was so pleased with all the vendors! The flowers were so beautiful, the DJ was a hit, the food was delicious and the photographer/videographers were great! She made sure everyone was where they should be when they needed to be and that all the preparations went smoothly. The wedding decor was so much better than what I could have imagined/planned myself (I'm a lawyer, and have no artistic sensibility). I'm immensely thankful to Jackquelyn and Laura who guided us through the process, made it all seem easy and created the most incredible day for us. I cannot recommend Jackquelyn and Laura and their whole team highly enough!!Sent on 10/29/2019
