Love and Light
There are no words that can describe my experience with Laura but here we go. From the beginning of pre-COVID wedding planning, Laura was a shining light of energy. She’s knowledgable, charismatic and honest. She’ll give you her honest opinion on vendors, budget planning and expectations. Her industry experience is completely unparalleled. I was excited to start planning the big day with a great support.
Fast forward COVID where no one knew what was going on. Laura stayed positive and honest and hopeful throughout it all. There was a lot of checking in and a sense of ‘it’s going to be ok’ which is exactly what I needed. Despite everyone telling me to push the wedding to 2021 so ‘everyone can be there’ Laura helped me see the only person that needed to be there was my fiancé. Laura would help me with whatever I decided but in my heart I knew this was the right path for us.
After 3 wedding date changes, 1 venue cancellation and a dramatic drop in guests, I got my dream wedding. To say that I truly could not have done it without Laura would be a understatement. Is she a new best friend, a therapist, a magical fairy godmother and a boss? Yes, yes, yes and hell yes!!! The day was executed flawlessly which speaks volumes to Laura’s planning. She brought together a vision I didn’t even know was possible. I was truly taken aback by the beauty of the venue. I trusted Laura’s vision and expertise and was not disappointed. I couldn’t have ‘pinned’ a more beautiful day. As I waited to walk down the with my dad, with tears in his eyes he said, “wow, this is absolutely incredible.” He is a man of few words but they are full of sentiment.
I can never thank her enough for planing the most special day of my life but the happiness that we all exude from the photos are a great start.
Laura, I hope you know your gifts are as unique as you! Thank you for always putting my mind at ease, coming up with hilarious puns, having the most calming energy and for simply being you throughout this wild journey!Sent on 11/03/2020
Josefina Weddings & Events's reply:Love & Light is right. It’s easy to design the perfect day when your bride becomes your muse and says “ I trust you! Do what you do!” To be given that trust is an honor and not one I take lightly. This year was not the norm that’s for sure, but your determination to say I do to the man you love you was inspiring . So what you didn’t have 100 guest - you had the most spectacular wedding day with the people who truly mattered. Personally , I believe Micro Weddings will be the new hot trend. Stephanie and Connor, it was worth the date and venue changes - it was perfect, but a lot of that was because of the energy you two brought forth. Thank you for giving Josefina Events the opportunity to make your day spectacular.

Highly recommended wedding planner!
We are so grateful to have found Laura from Josefina Wedding & Events to work with as a planner for our wedding. Unfortunately, we have had to postpone our wedding until next year due to COVID-19 and Laura has been so wonderful and accommodating. We have already been working with her for almost a year and she is always so responsive and provides us with so much useful information. She is so experienced and has so many great connections within the Coachella valley. We are confident that when our wedding arrives, we will not have to worry about anything because we have Laura as our planner. We would highly recommend Josefina Weddings & Events to anyone that is looking for 5-star planning services.Sent on 04/06/2020
Josefina Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you Melissa! Reading this reminded me about why I do what I do. In times like these we need to be understanding of each others situations and I feel fortunate to be working with such a wonderful and appreciative couple. Your day will be incredible and hey, what's one more year until forever! ;-) With love, Laura

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
