Beautiful Big Sur Wedding!
We had the absolute pleasure of working with Jamie from Sea Stars Catering & Events for our Big Sur wedding! I’ve never seen someone who works behind the scenes get as much praise as she (rightly so) did from our guests.Sent on 09/25/2019
Jamie knows the area like nobody else - she helped us decide on vendors and referred us to the best DJ, transportation, rentals, bartender, florist, and even local wines to serve. She can really give you the proper guidance to make your dream wedding a reality and is everything that one should look for in a wedding planner. She is professional, incredibly talented, detailed orientated, organized, creative, and very accommodating. You can truly get the sense that she cares as much about your event as you do.
Her catering, also knocked it out of the park when it came to hors d’oeuvres and dinner! She helped us select a variety of passed appetizers and customized a family-style dinner menu! The food portions were very generous (nobody left hungry) and the quality of the food was top-notch, as Jamie hand-picked seasonal ingredients from the local farmer’s market before the big day. The food was delicious, creative, fresh, and fit perfectly with the venue and region - we couldn’t get our guests to stop talking about how much they loved it all!
Did I also mention that Jamie is a pastry chef? She made a number of desserts for us – such as freshly baked chocolate chunk cookies and home-made macarons! She also made our wedding cake - which was as delicious as it was beautiful and by far the BEST cake I have ever had. I even ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning, and am already counting down the days to our first anniversary so that we can eat that top tier!!
We still cannot get over how great Jamie and her entire team were! If you are planning to have your wedding in Monterey, Big Sur, or Carmel, do yourself a favor and hire Jamie!

Delicious food and great design
Jamie was our caterer and planner, which made most of our wedding-planning process stress-free. We provided her with an idea of what we wanted, a few specific details, and let her do her thing. She's responsive, has a great design sense, and everyone keeps telling us how the food that her team served for our cocktail hour and dinner was the best wedding food they've had. The week before our wedding, we found out it was going to rain and Jamie really threw it into high gear, figuring out tents and rearranging our reception design so that we could still have our wedding outdoors. In addition, Kristen, our day-of coordinator for SeaStars, was vigilant, taking care of us the entire day and ensuring everything went well!Sent on 06/12/2019
