    I couldn't have asked for more!

    Wedding Connection was absolutely amazing with helping me plan my wedding at Rancho Soquel. I worked directly with Elyse and she was incredible - very responsive to all of my emails and planning questions and was truly fantastic during the actual day of. I could not have asked for anything better in terms of helping me coordinate my wedding. I trusted her and Michele from Feast for a King for in their expertise. The two of them worked really well together and I felt not only comfortable, but completely taken care of in their hands. I would highly recommend!!

    My experience was AMAZING. As a bride who decided to have a short engagement(6 months) Densie and Elyse were outstanding. Elyse did most of the coordinating and was with us the day of rehearsal and day of the wedding. She was so calm, exceptional at managing people and very reassuring. My bridal party loved her and well after the wedding ended were mentioning how fun and helpful she was! They have great preffered vendor list that works with a wide range of budgets. I am so glad to have had them on one of the most special days.

The Bride and her wedding party are always number one with Denise. From the beginning to end Denise always there with her expertise and recommendations.

    I recently worked with Denise from The Wedding Connection on a wedding in the Santa Cruz Mountains. She was super responsive and friendly throughout the process of preparing for the wedding and really stayed on top of making the day run smoothly for the couple as well as for us vendors. I am really looking forward to working with her again and would recommend her to any discerning couple who really wants to plan something special.
