    Highly Recommend

    Sanya and her team are awesome! Very knowledgeable, friendly and responsive. They worked tirelessly to execute my vision and helped make my wedding the event of the century. Highly Recommend!

    VIP Mansion's reply:

    Thank you my sweet & beautiful Noelle! COVID and a couple of postponements were not going to stop us from creating the wedding of the century! It truly was!! I loved getting to know you, your family and friends... and know that I've made a friend for life in you!
    The entire team of vendors loved you as well and we all poured our hearts and souls into your wedding!

    Wishing you and Jamal a lifetime of love and happiness!

    Gorgeous Venue, Perfect Planning, Villa Contempo

    We got married at Villa Contempo in Orange with the backdrop of Santiago Canyon and it was the most gorgeous, beautiful, stress-less experience we could have asked for. The wedding exceeded all expectations in both look and planning. We worked with Amanda throughout the whole experience, a full 1 year in advance, and she did so much work for us, especially on the day of the wedding. She was always responsive via email and text, she would let us know if she was too busy to answer right that moment but always got back to us with our answers. She arranged for us to meet with Jason's Catering, Sweet Traders, Tustin Florist, DJ Julian Miranda, and even accompanied us to the floral appointment where we got tons of planning done face to face. She contacted my photographer, videographer, hair & makeup team for us to create a timeline and make sure everyone was on the same page. On the day of the wedding, we had 192 guests, so she had 2 assistants Sara and Sanya that were also so sweet, friendly, and helpful. She took care of all the boxes we brought of decorations, place cards, party favors, kids toys; we just left them in her hands and everything ended up exactly where they needed to go. All of the hiccups that happened on the wedding day were taken care of by her team without worrying us and she only brought up a couple things to us that were easily taken care of. The venue itself is gorgeous; we mostly stayed in the lower section with the guest house, our ceremony and reception were outside around the pool, it was a warm night in June, and everyone had a view of the sunset in the canyon. We extended our party until 11pm and the indoor dance floor was packed all night, especially because the bar was right next to it. The guest house was the perfect place to get ready for our 30 people, the girls all had plenty of space to get ready upstairs, the guys had the entire downstairs, and the full kitchen made it easy to lay out snacks and food for getting ready. Overall, we had the perfect experience for our wedding thanks to Amanda and her team and we highly recommend VIP for anyone needing that stress-free experience.

    Sanya is awesome!

    We had to switch venue last minute due to Covid but little did we know it turned out even more beautiful than our original venue! Thanks Sanya! You and your team definitely have some hidden heavenly gorgeous venue people don’t usually see from WeddingWire or the Knot!

    We are so glad to have found you makes the last minute plan change a perfect wedding.

    VIP Mansion's reply:

    Thank you so much Xiaoxi! My only regret is that I didn't get to work with you and Jason (and your adorable fur-baby Megatron) longer! Hope you're enjoying your new (and married) life in San Fran - you will definitely not miss the East Coast winters!
    Best wishes to you all and hope to stay in touch!
    XOXO,
    Sanya

"Calm under (extreme) pressure. Spreadsheet Queen who has a spreadsheet for everything. Keeps her cool - with her sense of humor intact. Wedding whisperer. Soothing confidence with rock-solid competence."

This is how clients and colleagues describe me and I can honestly say that I am the luckiest person to be able to put all my talents to good use AND witness LOVE... for a living!

I left my Bio-Chem degree and corporate medical world behind, pursued curiosity and built the career of my dreams. I'm a hopeless romantic and still cry at weddings. My slight OCD for all details and perfection (of course all linen seams have to face the same way, don't they?) is finally valued. I am obsessed with Milk Tea Boba and will drive far for a good one. I swear I have a separate stomach for desserts and would rather spend extra time on my spin bike if it enables me to enjoy my gastronomy adventures. I still think that I married THE most amazing man in the world and we are proud parents to 3 little stinkers (and 14 chickens).

When hiring me to be your wedding designer & planner (perhaps event a therapist at times), be prepared to become friends, too! And be warned: you just might become addicted to all things weddings, like I did! :)

When I started planning my own wedding at 5... ok maybe 6, of course it only made sense that my career path would lead to becoming a wedding and event planner! Plus I’m Italian... so don’t all Italians love and know how to throw a good party?!

I can honestly say I genuinely love what I do and you’ll probably feel that the moment we meet. From designing, to planning, to meeting your families, I love every minute of it... throw your dog in the mix and I’m even more excited!

There really is nothing more rewarding then seeing the smiles on my clients’ faces when they see their dream day come to life!

If I’m not at a wedding you can find me at the beach, trying a new brewery, or tailgating with my family a Charger game!
