The best planner we could have asked for!

From the moment we hired Taryn and SoCal Wedding Consultant, I immediately felt more at ease with the process of wedding planning. Though we hired SCWC for event coordination and design, Taryn was there for us during every step of the process. She reviewed our vendor contracts, was available by phone or email to answer any questions we had, gave us timelines and deadlines to follow, and generally made our lives so much easier. Three months before the wedding, Taryn fully took over vendor communications, which was an enormous weight off our backs. Taryn and her staff are so positive, kind and welcoming -- she answered our zillions of questions with patience and kindness, provided valuable insight and gently steered us away from decisions that may not have worked out well for us. One day before our wedding, we visited our venue only to find that there were goose droppings ALL over the main lawn where we were planning to have our ceremony. The next day, Taryn made sure literally every single piece of it was gone, while still maintaining the kindest, warmest energy that made the day so much better. You will absolutely not regret hiring Taryn and SCWC for your wedding - they are the best of the best

The best of the best!

SoCal Wedding Consultant was everything I could have hoped for in a coordination team, and more. My inquiries and initial contact was predominantly with Adreanna, and she was amazing every step of the way. I felt like not only did she have my back, but that she completely understood what we were going for with our wedding – which while it wasn’t exactly traditional, it wasn’t so out of the box either. Other folks I spoke to initially struggled to grasp the concept. Adreanna was organized, punctual, and on top of everything and anything I needed, even when I started working with her almost a year and a half in advance.

Taryn is truly amazing and sent wonderful emails and kept in contact, before becoming the primary contact closer to my wedding. She too was on top of things, a very clear communicator, quick with answers and assistance. I can’t even begin to imagine what went on behind the scenes that she and Adreanna handled before it could come to my attention both before and during my wedding day.

At first, I thought I didn’t need coordination, especially because my venue had their own coordinator. LET ME TELL YOU HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE YOUR OWN COORDINATOR(S)!!! Taryn and Adreanna really made sure things went smoothly and helped wrangle the difficult on-site coordinator. They identified that coordinator’s errors and continually corrected them. I never saw the on-site coordinator. Not once. Meanwhile, I saw Adreanna and Taryn constantly day of, and they were fantastic, checking to see if we needed anything, if we felt prepared, supported, etc. Caleb, who I didn’t have a chance to properly meet, was quick on the draw to help with a potential wardrobe issue too.

The whole team was amazing and made everything stress-free. I got to really enjoy my wedding day, preparing, getting ready, spending time with family and friends, my ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception due to the kindness, support, attention to detail, professionalism, and dedication of Taryn and Adreanna. I cannot stress enough to anyone who is reading this, this is the team to hire. I’m a Type A, very detail-driven person who thought they could handle it all on their own, and the BEST money I spent from my wedding budget, was the money spent to hire SoCal Wedding Consultant. I want to do it all over again just so I can have them helping me along the way.

LIFE (and wedding) SAVER

If you want to have the smoothest wedding day possible, surrounded by the most professional and attentive to detail team, then Taryn is your go-to. My (now) husband and I have very busy jobs, and planning a large cultural wedding was going to take up so much time that neither of us had. Taryn made this process incredibly smooth and so stress free for us which was so so important. She gave birth to her sweet twins right around our wedding date so she unfortunate could not be there to celebrate with us in person, but she provided multiple extra coordinators on the day of to make sure everything went PERFECT. My husband and I felt nothing but bliss on our wedding day and that was all thanks to Taryn and her team, we cannot thank you enough!

SoCal Wedding Consult, and specifically Taryn, is a wonder to work with. She is beyond professional and really cares for her clients. I was a vendor for one of her client's weddings and she and her assistant, Keith, were at the venue early setting up, she was pleasant to deal with, easy going, calm, and absolutely professional. She was grateful for anyone working with her, and she was always on top of things and quick to respond on any emails. I would love to work with her again, and any couple would be lucky to have her as their planner. She will make your experience memorable. Amazing woman! I love Taryn!
