Get Started with OTBP!
I honestly can't remember how we stumbled across Stephanie & OTBP but I'm glad we did and wish it could have been for longer! We originally wanted to hire OTBP for our full service planner & catering after seeing the website and reviews and knowing we wanted to have an al fresco wedding outside centered on Farm to Table cuisine; however, were so early on in the planning process the idea of signing a big contract for planner and catering prior to booking a venue felt overwhelming. Luckily we developed a quick repertoire with Stephanie after filling out a thorough questionnaire (about ourselves, guest count, budget, etc) and initial phone call and knew right away we wanted her to be our guide in bringing about the vision for our wedding. She graciously agreed to doing the "Venue Selection" option offered so we could work together and then decide what worked best for us after nailing down the place (a lot of Bay Area wedding venues have weird rules around catering so it made a lot of sense this way). After doing some back and fourth about our must haves Stephanie was presented us with some options and potential budgets. Being an admitted Type A bride I can say that Stephanie was super flexible and encouraging of any suggestions I had on the venue's. She was also very helpful in setting up site visits for us to go see together and was a great thought partner as my fiancee and I clunked through some of initial ideas. In the end, with COVID uncertainty and whatnot our priorities totally shifted and we ended up deciding to do a destination wedding instead. We feel great about forgoing the big (namely expensive) shindig here, but we are totally bummed about not being able to keep working with Stephanie over the next year on our big day (if we could we would totally bring her with us!). We would highly highly highly recommend working with her and definitely think you should, at the very least start your venue selection with Stephanie at the helm. Her knowledge of the area is great and she was so quick to get back to our (my) many many questions. For sure the right personality for a super detailed person like me but also just a really easygoing person for anyone who's not looking for an over the top, pushy, cookie-cutter planner like the MANY that are out there in this region. Even if they don't wind up in your final plan, go with OTPB you won't regret it!Sent on 12/02/2020

Fantastic experience working with Stephanie at Off the Beaten Path
Stephanie was absolutely wonderful to work with. She brought creative ideas, was easy to get in touch with, and sourced some perfect venue options for us in the Napa area. While we didn't ultimately end up having our wedding (due to COVID), we were so happy that we got to work with Stephanie in the planning process. She made it easy and stress free and we are so grateful for that.Sent on 07/26/2020

The single most important decision we made planning was hiring off the beaten path
Hiring Stephanie goes down in the books as the single most important piece of advice I would give to any couple planning a wedding. Everything else could have been a little different and the wedding would have been fine. But a Stephanie-less wedding would have transformed the year before the wedding from full of easy breezy joy to full of stress. And let’s face it, look at her Instagram, her taste is 100 times better than mine. Without her my gorgeous wedding that could have been featured on some popular wedding Instagram account would have looked just OK.
Working with Stephanie means no matter what, you will have a breathtaking wedding.
Whether you are like me and you just want to show up to an Instagram perfect wedding without putting in the work, or you are someone with a vision of the beauty that is going to ooze from every carefully chosen wedding detail….Stephanie is your girl.
Like I said, I more so fall in that category of “I want a stunning wedding but I don’t want to make it happen.” I showed up and was greeted by what was genuinely the most beautiful event I have ever attended. All I did was send Stephanie a pinterest board!
Not that she did not give me every opportunity to be as involved as I wanted to be. She would often email and ask if I wanted to give input on a certain detail. And if I said yes, she crafted the input into a multiple choice question where I just chose between 3 darling options-totally my decision making speed.
I have no doubt she will involve you how you want to be involved. I have no doubt she will ensure your wedding is stunning. I have no doubt she will flow the day along so you can just enjoy it and not once think about if those tables are setup yet or if the band is going to arrive on time. It felt like magic was gliding the wedding along-and isn’t that what we all want-a magic forward day?
HIRE STEPHANIE! You will not regret it. I still feel like I was so much less stressed than all my friends were getting married and I give her the credit for making that the case.

From the moment I met Stephanie, I knew that she was going to be a pleasure to work with. Her company's angle is a bit unique and focusing on the very important elements of a Napa Wedding: A beautiful setting, amazing food and wonderful wines to pair with them. Both Barbara and I enjoyed working with her and are looking to do so, for many more weddings to come!
