Amazing experience planning a wedding at Terranea with Master Plans

Yingka, Samiyah and the whole team was amazing and created a wedding that ended up being beyond my wildest dreams at Terranea. Yingka (and her team) responds to any call, text, or email within minutes or very soon after! As a starting point, my venue provided several "preferred" vendors. When I reached out to many of the vendors, Yingka was the first to respond and was so open and welcoming. She made me feel comfortable and wanted to know what I envisioned for my wedding and what she could do to make it happen. Throughout the process, I received many recommendations, including which vendors to use for photography, videography, florals, etc. I am so grateful that I worked with vendors Yingka was familiar with and recommended, because everything was perfect. Our wedding was elevated because of Master Plans, and everything could not have been smoother!

The entire team displayed kindness, professionalism and positivity. While wedding planning might be stressful, the whole team made me feel like everything was taken care of from beginning to end.

Great and EASY service

Never having been married before, I had no idea what a wedding planner did and to this day I am not sure all the work they did behind the scenes. That said, these guys were CLUTCH leading up to the wedding. To start, they had knowledge of and relationships with multiple vendors that we actually did end up going with (including our florist) and because they knew what it was we were looking for, they were able to personalize the offerings to us. As we started getting closer to the actual wedding date, they slowly started assembling all the necessary stuffs including the vendor contracts and contact numbers, and they helped me navigate a situation with a vendor that was potentially fraudulent. Their impact was especially evident in the days leading up to the wedding, where they had entire timelines created, and come our wedding day, they were essential in ensuring everyone was where they needed to be and when they needed to be there, even helping our photographer get shots after the ceremony. Yingka and Fei were tremendous throughout the entire process, responding exceedingly quickly to any questions we had and ensuring everything was as we imagined it at the start of planning. For the price, the services they offered was extraordinary and we are super happy to have gone with them.

An absolute godsend and one of the best decisions my wife and I made for our dream wedding

I whole heartedly believe that finding Master Plans (Yingka and her team) was a blessing for my wife and me, given all that we had been through.

Short backstory - we hired another wedding planner prior to Master Plans and that was a disaster from the beginning. We ended up terminating that contract but the damage had been done. Planning a wedding in general is stressful but it was also supposed to be fun. That first wedding planner really sucked all of the fun and excitement up to that point. Honestly, we were both down in the dumps because we are very trusting people and we felt betrayed and lied to.

By some miracle, I was on IG and saw an old classmate following Master Plans. I reached out to her and she had nothing but positive things to say about Yingka and her team. My wife and I spoke to Yingka and since that initial consultation, the energy, optimism, and FUN came back.

Things I appreciated about Yingka and her team:
- while my wife and I were stressed at different points in our wedding planning, Yingka has a quiet confidence about her and she was always calm and reassuring. An example - my wife was indecisive on the florist leading up to 3 weeks before the wedding so I was freaking out. Yingka kept cool and got us through it

- Yingka and her team were always REALLY responsive. I am detail oriented and a little nit-picky, but her team was nice and answered all of my questions (and let me tell you - there were a lot of questions since I am 1) a man and 2) very unfamiliar with the whole process)

- they really have the whole process planned out to a T. Leading up to the wedding, there was constant communication between Master Plans and the wedding party. On the day of, everything was planned in 10-15 min increments to make sure EVERYTHING WENT ACCORDING TO PLAN

- they went above and beyond their scope of work with all of the assistance that they provided, leading up to the wedding and the day of

- Yingka's network of vendors is expansive. She provided recommendations regarding vendors that she has worked with and we ended up choosing a photographer that she was familiar with. That photographer did an absolutely amazing job and my wife and I were thrilled with how the photos turned out

- they have a treasure trove of wedding day knick knacks that they can provide to enhance the look and feel of your wedding

- she is a preferred vendor at Terranea! Definitely the best one on the list.

Overall, I really can't fully express how happy I am that we chose Master Plans and how grateful I am for all the work that Yingka and her team put in to make sure that my wife and I had our dream wedding.
