Robin is the right partner for your wedding!

I had the pleasure of working with Robin on my recent Sept 2023 wedding in San Francisco. If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, do yourself a big favor and hire her! I had already found my venue and most of my vendors, and am comfortable doing a fair bit of project management on my own, but was looking for the right professional to help me in the weeks leading up to and on the day of my event. Right during our first call, I knew Robin was an excellent fit. She is an excellent listener with straight-forward expertise, and will take your cues on what you want and need. She asks good clarifying questions - but never in a pushy way. Her responsiveness is top notch and I greatly appreciated her thoughtful emails and attention to detail. She handled communication with all my vendors in an effective, positive way and really shone when I was having issues with my venue - she took care of it seamlessly, politely, and without a hitch.

I wanted my wedding planning to be as low stress and effort as possible, and Robin was an integral part of that. Even if your situation is not the same as mine - even if you don’t think you need a coordinator! - I encourage you to Robin about your special day. She has worked with so many different brides and events and venues that she is well-versed in handling just about everything. Robin is also just an all around kind, funny person - a real pleasure to work with. You won’t regret it!

A million times yes!

Robin was an amazing wedding planner - almost wish I had more weddings just so I could continue working with her! From start to finish, she was an integral part of keeping our wedding organized. She helped me think of things I never would have thought of. Not only that, but she was truly a source of support and was always ready to help me with anything and would even volunteer for things I wouldn't have thought to offload to someone else. Her services were worth every penny and I am so happy she took us on as a client. We got married on 4/25/2020 and had to drastically modify our 200 person wedding to 10 people due to the pandemic, but she worked and went above and beyond by helping me coordinate our updates with vendors and was very understanding about what we were going through. Do yourself a favor and hire her!!!

The one and only wedding planner you will ever need!

Robin is amazing. She was extremely helpful for our wedding. At first, we were unsure if we needed a planner, but after speaking to her, we knew that she was exactly the person we needed. She listened to our concerns and addressed our every need – even when we didn’t know we needed them! My wife is a planner, who loves planning all our events. After meeting Robin, she trusted some of the details away for Robin to plan, and she couldn’t have been happier! Robin is very responsive, even when she’s busy, she’ll respond back with a timeline on when she’ll get back to us and most importantly, she follows through! In all the swirling chaos and hurry that was our wedding day, she got things done: from herding our wedding party to the right spots at the right times, to praying the rain away, even to making sure our dessert table is fully stocked. Each time I saw glimpses of her during our day, I felt relieved and at ease knowing that everything is taken care of. She made every effort to make sure that neither my wife nor I would feel stressed during the wedding – a momentous task! Thank you so much Robin for taking good care of us!

Not much to say other than she is the quintessential pro. Robin is very thorough and easy to work with. My only complaint is that I do not get the opportunity to work with her more often.

Robin was an absolute joy to work with - incredibly nice, incredibly organized, and on top of everything. In advance of the wedding we worked together at, she had sent me clear instructions for loading in/out and I knew exactly when and where I needed to be. While I was setting up, before I even had time to realize I needed additional tables for my photo booth props, she had someone bringing them by. The whole day went like clockwork and it made for such a fun and relaxing event; she made everyone's day so much easier, from the bride to the vendors, what a pro!
