About

O Frabjous Day Events offers wedding and celebration planning, especially for LGBTQ couples. We are based in the Bay Area, but have worked with people all over the country. We use our talent and expertise to let you feel like a guest at your own event, and would love to help you create the perfect celebration to match your vision, personality, and budget.

My passion is helping people plan fabulous, meaningful, stress-free celebrations of all varieties.

I have been a Certified Wedding Planner for over twenty years. While I am based in the San Francisco Bay Area and love doing weddings here, I have also helped clients from Seattle, Washington to Washington, D.C. plan their events.

It is my honor to serve on the board of my local WIPA Chapter, the Wedding International Professionals Association, as the Director of Programs. WIPA鈥檚 mission is to provide industry leading education for our members, produce inspirational networking events and advance the ethical standards of the wedding industry.

My wife and I have been happily married for over fifteen years. Our wedding was the best day of our lives. I want to help you have the best day of your life, too!

Warmly,

Laura

Laura is the best planner I could have imagined working with!

My wife and I worked with Laura for about a year planning our wedding. Laura walked us through every step of the way, provided us with planning materials and timelines to keep us on track, scheduled consistent meetings with us, helped us work through all of the decisions, and carried the weight of any challenges that arose. Laura was an absolute joy to work with throughout this planning process, and the day of could not have gone smoother. I was essentially stress free the day of due to Laura鈥檚 extensive timeline and my trust in her. Our venue was particularly challenging, as it was not a traditional wedding venue, so we had to coordinate all services and vendors. It鈥檚 because of Laura鈥檚 attention to detail and experience that we pulled this off! I cannot recommend Laura enough, she is a joy to work with and REALLY good at her job. I can鈥檛 imagine working with a wedding planner who is more organized (and also as fun to work with!) Our wedding was perfect and we will forever be grateful to Laura!

Laura is the best!

We worked with Laura for a little over a year leading up to our wedding and it was hands down the best wedding decision we made! From advising us on vendors to making budget-friendly decor recommendations, Laura's guidance helped us immensely throughout the planning process. As a queer couple, we also really wanted someone who could help us change or discard traditions that didn't work for us and instead create a celebration tailored to us, and help us avoid the most cis/heteronormative parts of weddings (tons of gendered language, prescriptive roles, etc.). Laura got it immediately and expertly helped us navigate the wedding world. She's also a real pro at navigating complicated family dynamics, which was so helpful. She asked all the right questions, kept us on top of things, and executed the logistics of our wedding day flawlessly. Laura is down-to-earth, trustworthy, dependable, and a true expert. I felt so at ease knowing we were in good hands with her. I could fill pages singing her praises, so suffice it to say--she's the best!

Laura is a wedding wizard!

Working with Laura was truly fantastic. I am so thankful for her and her incredibly thoughtful planning process. Laura created a helpful timeline for planning, mapping out what comes first, what comes later and what to let someone else handle. I had no idea how many moving pieces were involved in having a wedding, and I was so grateful to turn the planning over the Laura who knew exactly what to do and was a true professional. She is joyful, communicative, and really good at what she does. I would recommend Laura to anyone.

I photographed a destination wedding in San Francisco recently that was planned and organized by Laura at O Frabjous Day Events. She was a joy to work with before and during the event. She organized a San Francisco City Hall wedding for a couple from Liverpool England. They were completely taken care of and had the time of their lives. Laura is down to earth, positive, and funny. I hope to do another event with her very soon!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Laura Brezel on a big outdoor wedding in Cupertino. Laura worked tirelessly to take care of every detail to make the event run smoothly. She helped make my job easier by asking lots of questions and helping to figure out logistics. She supervised the floor staff and ensured that the hosts and guests were able to enjoy their party -- she is a lovely person and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her services!
