Brides, weddings, and parties these are thoughts that many girls have on their minds growing up. This was no different for Lina Wallace, our wedding/ event planner and owner of A Stunning Affair, an all-inclusive company catering to each and every whim of any prospective client. Spending a great deal of her youth drawn to anything and everything involving parties, little did Lina know that her part-time flower arranging job and classes in floral design while pursuing her Liberal Arts Bachelors degree with a minor in Fashion Design at California State University, Northridge, would lead to her life's passion becoming a wedding and event planner.

Certification as a Professional Bridal Consultant by the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) soon after embarking on her dream job in 2006 provided clients from every walk of life with the utmost in customized service. Continuing involvement in ABC as a committee member led to planning and designing numerous events including a Southern California function at Dodger Stadium which was subsequently published in the 2010 edition of The Knot, a popular bridal magazine. 

In May of 2010, Lina was selected to be the wedding planner  an online reality series called, Married on MySpace 2. She coordinated every detail, all of which were chosen by more than one million fan votes and ultimately viewed by more than 15 million users. 

Additional planned events have been highlighted on-line in Hostess with the Mostess, Style Me Pretty, Project Wedding and L.A. Style Unveiled. Participation in the Event Planning Conference held in Cancun, Mexico, acquainted Lina with destination venues and resorts for any client that might be interested in an extraordinary locale.

Whether formal, casual, classic or contemporary, events have ranged from the intimate with 25 guests to the elaborate with over 400 attendees, taking place at the Burbank Equestrian Center, L.A. River Center, Café Pinot, Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, Island Hotel in Newport Beach,  The Hotel Maya, Terranea in Palos Verdes, the Four Seasons Hotel in Santa Barbara and many other locales in neighboring Pasadena, Malibu, and Ventura.

Lina is simply amazing. When we began down the path of planning our wedding, neither of us had any idea how much work was involved. Lina provided us not only great guidance, but also incredible advice on many aspects of our big day. She helped us with major decisions, as well as minor details, to ensure that everything was executed based on our vision for the day. Lina is incredibly easy and fun to work with - always ready to help. On our wedding day, Lina made sure that everything ran as smoothly as possible. We had a pretty tight timeline for certain parts of the night - but she and her team made sure we didn't miss a beat. There are not enough words to describe how great she is. To put it simply - we could not have done this without her.

Lina is incredible. She is very experienced in wedding planning and brought to our attention so many details that we did not think of on our own. Prior to our wedding, she met with us several times and each meeting was beyond productive. She fashioned timelines for us, gave us templates to work off of, got in touch with vendors for random things we ended up needing (like outdoor twinkly lights, neon signs and high chairs), checked in with each of our vendors, advised us on appropriate etiquette for things like making escort cards, proofread our invitations... it's endless the amount of things Lina did for us prior to the wedding. Even more impressive was her ability to pull off everything we wanted on the day of. It was probably the hottest day of the year in LA, but Lina brought a trustworthy pair of assistants with her and they were spectacular. I gave Lina 6 boxes of decorations the day before and she unpacked everything flawlessly. The entire place looked amazing. At the end of the night, she meticulously repacked everything into my aunt's car. While she and one of her assistants handled the entire venue and guests, she had another assistant helping me and my bridal party get ready. Everything went according to plan and I have Lina and her team to thank. Lina is truly a gem. I've heard countless stories from friends where they've told me that their day-of coordinator didn't do a whole lot for them. Lina is the opposite. She was absolutely invaluable to me and my now-husband. If you are looking for a wedding planner or day-of coordinator, Lina is the best resource you can hire. Her professionalism, organization and detail-oriented nature make her so pleasant to work with. We miss her dearly.

Lina and her team gave me my dream wedding! And planning it wasn't nearly as painful (at least for me) as it could have been.

Like the brides that have reviewed before me, I cannot begin to say enough about what Lina did (and put up with) to help bring my vision for my (whoops! our) wedding to fruition. She was extremely communicative and ridiculously flexible. I was in the middle of a trial for much of the time we were planning the wedding, and Lina was willing to meet with me at my office, or late evenings at my home.

This may sound weird, but throughout the planning process, Lina also felt like a good friend. It's important to have someone that can help you brainstorm, make recommendations, and reel you in when you've gotten a little too creative, or are in danger of going well over budget. Lina was that person for me. She helped me narrow down my ideas for our invitation suite, and made sure every detail of the wedding (there were A LOT) tied into our theme.

She recommended vendors that were energetic, professional, and excited to work on a colorful wedding. She helped corral those vendors that I insisted on finding myself, and helped me find one-stop shops when I wanted to make things difficult for us both. She even procured 100 gold chargers from another bride (cheaply) for my tablescape. From the very beginning she shared my vision, and was sufficiently organized to keep me on task. I relied heavily on the documents she created for me -- the day of check list was essential! As a type-A, Capricorn, lawyer-type, it's rare that I can say that I completely trust another person to get things done. I trusted Lina.
More important than anything I've mentioned previously, was Lina's team's ability to execute on our wedding day. There were a ton of little details and moving pieces in our wedding, cocktail hour, and reception, and each was executed perfectly. I am eternally grateful!

Professional Network & Endorsements

Lina & her team are super sweet, orgainzed and very easy to work with. Always on top of things without being to aggresive which is important. A coordinator needs to know when to jump in and when to hang back and let things unfold. They also work well with the vendors and take input so we can all work as a team to make the event amazing. Highly recommend!!

I have had the pleasure of working with Lina from A Stunning Affair, and would like to share my experience with you. Lina is very cheerful and extremely easy to work with, while very sharp and on top of everything. She is also excellent with communication and will consult with your vendors with care; prior, during and after your event. It's plain to see that Lina loves what she does, and wants to share her infectious enthusiasm with those around her. I just wish there were more people like her in our industry.

You are in great hands with A Stunning Affair! Creative, resourceful, organized and energetic. A great vendor to work with!

A Stunning Affair lives up to the reputation of classy, high end event coordination. No event should be planned without the guidance of a true expert...I recommend, A Stunning Affair.
