    Sam and Zest It Up are A-MAZE-ING

    We booked the “Just The Icing” package with Zest It Up and worked directly with Sam. We needed a day of coordinator but Sam was so much more than that. Sam worked with us to suggest vendors that she knew/has worked with before in the area. We were planning this wedding from SoCal so it was great to have an insider in the area that could give us the best recommendations (we ended up using the same baker as Sam did for her own wedding – YUM!). The one thing we noticed immediately (we booked Sam almost a year before our wedding) was that EVERYONE knew and mentioned how much they loved working with Sam. We soon learned why. Sam is direct, friendly, on top of it, caring, and very experienced. She was on top of everything. Literally, every little thing. She knew the best way to fold the napkins, the place where the DJ would want to set up - all of it. I was under the impression (typical groom) that a day-of coordinator was not really something we needed. In retrospect, I am SO HAPPY we booked Sam for our wedding. We could not have had a smoother wedding and we were so amazed how she just showed up and handled everything the day of so that we could each focus on the things we had to/wanted to do the morning of our wedding. I would book Sam to coordinate any event. She just knows how to keep things productive and complete a long list of to dos so that the couple or event host can take a step back and actually ENJOY the planning process. If you book Sam and Zest It Up you will love your event and you will wish she could organize every part of your life!

    Helped us plan the best wedding!

    Sam and Zest It Up helped us plan and coordinate the most perfect wedding day! Our wedding was everything we could have asked for and more! The wedding was absolutely beautiful and everything went perfectly that day and all our guests had the best time!

    Sam's guidance on which vendors to work with and design details made all the difference! Her management of all the details and vendors was great and I knew I didn't have to worry about anything. As we got thrown a few last minute curve balls days before the wedding, I so appreciate her handling all of that and doing it so calmly and quickly that I didn't even have time to panic!

    It was so great working with Sam this past year to plan our wedding and I cannot thank her enough for everything, it was truly perfect and we could not have asked for anything more!

    Sam and team are AWESOME!

    Sam made us feel incredibly comfortable and supported from our very first zoom call to the dessert and flowers she left us in our room after the wedding night. She's the whole package, a keen eye for details and design (e.g. menus came out beautiful with sprigs of rosemary from her garden), incredibly organized (e.g. juggled 5 parallel threads with vendors during the last couple of weeks) and a warm, generous, awesome human. We went from initial skepticism of whether we needed a wedding planner at all, to regretting not going up to the Central Coast more to spend time with Sam. We recommend Sam without any reservations!!
