Where do I start?
Where do I start? It seriously was the first thing I thought of when my daughter decided to have an outdoor wedding reception with 200 guests! I immediately felt overwhelmed, but Gwen and her staff at Where to Start, Wedding Management was the help I needed.Sent on 01/30/2019
We discussed our vision and budget with Gwen, and she quickly set up a timeline. She was a wealth of information and had some wonderful ideas. Gwen was responsive to our needs and great at communicating with us. No detail was overlooked and she's super organized too! We trusted her completely.
Our guests were very impressed! With her creativity, Gwen turned a small plot of land into a stunning reception area! We were so pleased with the results. My husband and I were able to enjoy our daughter's special day, and the months leading up to it, with little worry or stress.
It was a pleasure working with Gwen and I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for help with their special event.

The best wedding planner out there!
Gwen Semenero Helbush and Where to Start, Wedding Management are by far the best in the industry around the Bay Area! We got so many compliments on our day and how everything went perfectly! When first going to Gwen about my day, my husband was deployed and we were going to settle for an indoor party, and had our venue picked, but due to the October fires that was not in the books anymore. With everyone trying to find places, I was kind of discouraged, but Gwen had asked if I had any family with property. After thinking about it, my dad’s cousin had a barn, rustic style property, and it was exactly what I had always dreamed of having! Without Gwen, I would have never even thought of this venue!Sent on 02/01/2019
After telling Gwen just a couple of things I really wanted, because I was never really good at these kind of things, Gwen offered some ideas and everything she recommended was exactly what I didn’t even know I wanted but was perfect for me and my husband!
I also wanted to incorporate family into the reception, and she recommended the idea of having my brother make a huge wall, that we would use as our background for our sweetheart table, and have our families marriage photos on it. This became the hit of the reception and everyone was amazed, once again, without Gwen, this wouldn’t have been possible.
When I first saw the tent and lights and all the details and how perfect everything came out I was breath taken! Not only did it look perfect, the day ran smoother than I ever thought was imaginable. My husband and I did not worry about a single thing, Gwen took care of everything so we could really focus on our friends and family and each other.
I know in this day and age, we think we can plan our own weddings, but if there is one thing I learned, in order to really enjoy your wedding day, you shouldn’t be stressed of how everything flows, rather really be able to enjoy the day. I can honestly say, Gwen Helbush and team is the way to go, and my family and I are so grateful that we did so. We will forever be thankful for how much work and love they put into our day, and thanks to Where to Start, my family and I have this memory to always look back on forever!

Gwen is one heck of a woman!! She did my brother and sister-in-laws wedding at V. Sattui and it was like a fairytale! I couldn't believe how magical and smooth everything went. Being a bridesmade too. She made sure everyone was happy and that everything was on time. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!Sent on 01/08/2013
