Azurae is the best!!
Ciel Bleu Event Design was so knowledgeable/fun/easy to work with for my wedding at Calamigos Ranch. I normally procrastinate meetings with vendors because it means I have to make design decisions I’m not always ready to make but I looked forward to all our conversations. She made the planning process enjoyable. Azurae went above and beyond for me, she had amazing ideas that I hadn’t even thought of and even though it was raining (😭) her quick thinking made the day play out even better than we had planned. She is a true professional and I will recommend her services to anyone looking for a planner/coordinator.Sent on 06/27/2019

We couldn't have done it without her!
Azurae knew, navigated, coordinated and delivered all the pieces of the puzzle and pulled off a fabulous event...(we think she's part psychologist too).Sent on 06/25/2019

I'm an event planner, and think Azurae is the best!
Because part of my job is planning corporate events, I knew we needed a professional to taken on our wedding. Azurae was perfect. She is a total pro, creative, so organized, and a true joy to work with. We've been telling anyone who will listen that she's the best investment we made in our wedding.Sent on 11/15/2018

It could not have been more perfect!!!!!
Our daughter got married last weekend and Azurae was our wedding planner. I never realized what an asset a wedding planner could be until last Saturday, the day of the wedding, not to mention all the details that lead up to the big day!! It was a destination wedding and we were not familiar with the Paso Robles area. Azurae's recommendations for all the vendors we used in our daughters wedding could not have been more perfect. After speaking with many of the vendors throughout the planning process, I learned just how highly respected Azurae is!! Each and every vendor I dealt with had nothing but wonderful things to say about her, and now I see why!! Her knowledge and expertise were a huge asset throughout the entire process. Her timely response to all messages whether through email, text or a phone conversation made the planning seamless. The day of the wedding, she was excellent at communicating with us about what we needed to do and when. The day couldn't have been more perfect, and I can honestly say without Azurae's help, we would have had a lot more to think about, besides just being able to enjoy the day!Sent on 10/19/2018
Azurae, we really can't thank you enough for everything you did!! If we are ever in the Paso area planning another wedding, you will most definitely be our wedding planner!!
Ciel Bleu Event Design's reply:Mary this is so thoughtful! Thank you for being such a joy to work with! I am so happy for your family!

Azurae and her team are second to none! Every last detail is covered. The team at Ciel Bleu is professional, insightful and creative. They made our dream day come true!Sent on 10/15/2018
Ciel Bleu Event Design's reply:Your day was straight out of a dream! Congratulations and thank you for the kind words! Cheers to you and your beautiful bride!

Incredibly helpful partial planning services
Our venue required more than just day of coordination, which was tough for us because we didn’t need, nor could afford, a full service planner. Luckily we found Azurae who offered more of a partial package for us. We were able to think through various aspects of the planning process with her via emails and phone calls, early on. We were also able to meet up with her a couple times for venue walk throughs, closer to our wedding month. She’s so well versed in the central coast wedding industry and has wonderful relationships with vendors. She fully handled our linen order, which was awesome. Towards the end, she also took over communication with vendors and built our timeline. There were so many things we wouldn't have thought of without her! She was so great that my mother in law hired her to plan our rehearsal dinner, which was on site at our venue. I would highly recommend Azurae for partial wedding planning, and bet that she’d also be of wonderful help for full service planning!Sent on 10/18/2018

Fantastic Wedding Planner
Azurae was totally professional, had an outstanding array of vendors to choose from and was super positive and personable. Our wedding was remote and Azurae brought water and power and catering to make our 200ft dinner table and vineyard ceremony absolutely perfect. She transformed our barn into a music venue. We worked very closely with her on every detail and felt supper satisfied with the result. We recommend Azurae 100%! She made our dream wedding come true!Sent on 06/26/2019

Best wedding planner- Central Coast California
Azurae Shults was truly the most knowledgeable, well-connected, available wedding planner ever !! After all was said and done the wedding was perfection in large part due to her expertise. We also consider her a friend after spending countless trips and hours together. Would highly recommend her to anyone !!Sent on 10/16/2018

Azurae planned the wedding of our dreams, and we can’t recommend her highly enough. Azurae was recommended to us by Roxan at Villa San Juliette (our wedding venue) as the best wedding planner in all of SLO county, and she didn’t disappoint. From the beginning, Azurae was kind, full of great ideas, and had killer vendor recommendations! She got our vision immediately and struck a great balance between achieving our vision while keeping an eye on logistics. We worked long distance as we are out of the area and she went out of her way to help arrange meetings that were the most convenient. On our big day, I really didn’t have to worry about a thing. If something went wrong, I don’t know about it, and Azurae kept everyone on time. I’m so grateful to Azurae and cannot thank her enough for planning the best day of our lives!Sent on 07/14/2018

Azurae was a pleasure to work with! I'm a control freak and a perfectionist, and having Azurae to rely on put me and my now-husband at ease so we could relax and enjoy our wedding day. Our wedding was in SLO, and we're from LA, so we weren't familiar with any vendors in the area. Before the big day, she was ready to jump in wherever we needed help, which saved us a ton of time and stress trying to figure things out for ourselves. I had several DIY items I wanted to incorporate (including a slightly tedious 500-piece firefly lighting idea), and being able to hand it all off to her made our wedding so much more enjoyable. She handled everything so we didn't have to worry about any tiny details and was especially great with handling some last-minute changes (adding heaters to our rental order the night before the wedding... us deciding to do a sort of "first touch" to talk to each other at the last minute before the ceremony, etc.) Our wedding was beautiful and we'll remember it fondly forever. My husband and I would both highly recommend working with Azurae to help coordinate and plan your wedding!Sent on 11/07/2017
Carley · Married on 05/06/2017
Azurae is the BEST! Not only does she have relationships with every vendor in the Paso Robles are which is what we needed help with, but she puts her clients as her highest priority and truly makes you feel as though you don't have to worry about a thing because not only does she take the time to build relationships with her clients but she is able to make the best judgement calls on their behalf. I entrusted Azurae with any decision I was unsure about when it came to my wedding and she truly made the most important day of my life a dream come true. Thanks Azurae!Sent on 09/05/2017

Azurae is amazingly gifted as a wedding planner. The bride and I could not have pulled off our fairy tale wedding without her. She had excellent recommendations for venders, kept us on schedule with all meetings, order deadlines, and payments. She is fast to respond by phone and email yet never rushed when spending time with us. The wedding day she was everywhere keeping things running smoothly, always with a smile. We hired her early on and glad we did. She is a gem and worth every penny of her fee.Sent on 09/10/2017

Azurae helped me plan the perfect wedding! She kept me sane and positive throughout the experience. I am so appreciative of how kind and responsive she was to me during the whole wedding planning process. Not only was she amazing during the months leading up to my big day, but she was invaluable on the day of my wedding. My husband and I didn't have to think about anything but enjoying ourselves and our guests on our wedding day. Everything was all taken care of and every aspect flowed seamlessly. While I can't imagine ever planning another wedding, I would be thrilled to use Azurae and her team again on another event! Thank you so much!!!Sent on 10/10/2017

Azurae is amazing! She did an amazing job working with us heading in to our wedding and throughout the wedding weekend.

We could not have had our wedding without Azurae. She was with us, over and above the call of duty, throughout the entire process. Her taste is impeccable and we completely trusted her with everything including the tiniest details. I can't recommend her and her staff enough. After being told by numerous people that stressful situations would come up on our wedding day, we could not think of a single thing that went wrong or wasn't executed to the highest standards.Sent on 11/08/2015

Working with Azurae these past few months has made the whole wedding process fun, stress-free and memorable (in a good way). She is so organized, knows all the best vendors in the Paso area and knows how to throw a great party. I was able to tell her the things I likes, didn't like and imagined and she made it all happen. I felt completely comfortable working with Azurae because of herSent on 09/28/2015
just to name a few...
... as the "big day" got closer more and more people kept mentioning how relaxed I was and honestly I owe all that to Azurae and her team! On the day of and during the reception she had everything handled to a t so my fiance and I were able to enjoy all of our guests and our special day. I highly recommend Ciel Bleu to any bride looking for a stress-free, classy and unforgettable event!

Azurae was such an amazing wedding coordinator! She is very low-key and relaxed throughout the entire process, while still managing to get everything perfected. Everyone in our wedding party was very impressed with how easily she managed all of the vendors, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and family members without ever sounding demanding or stressed. She was so on top of everything and made us feel like all we had to do was show up! I can't imagine trying to plan a wedding without her help. Thanks Azurae!Sent on 10/22/2015

Azurae was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process of planning my daughter’s wedding! She is professional, proactive, patient, relaxed, and fun! We were planning a destination wedding, and had no contacts in the San Luis Obispo area. Initially, we thought we could find everything we needed by doing online research, but quickly realized websites don’t always paint an accurate picture. Several people we talked to recommended Azurae/Ciel Bleu without hesitation, so after a conference call, we hired her. That was a great decision, and Azurae’s network of trusted vendors was just right for my daughter’s wedding. We met in person about three times before the wedding (we were limited by the distance), and were thrilled that Azurae not only set up vendor appointments for us, but also accompanied us to the meetings. What was amazing to me was that she was able to take our ideas for the style of the wedding, offer suggestions for getting the most for our money, and pull everything together with well-thought-out finishing touches. Nearly all of our communications were done via email, which was perfect for us, and Azurae was equally accessible by phone. Everything fell into place according to her detailed timeline, so there was very little stress involved. If there were any last minute issues (and I doubt there were), I didn’t hear about them, which was such a relief! I never imagined I could be relaxed and enjoy every moment of my daughter’s big day, but that’s truly how it was!Sent on 12/04/2015

Azurae Shults.... what can one say!?! She is a singular powerhouse who is organized beyond the normal person! She is a loving and caring individual who truly cares about your event. She will work till the wee hours of the morning to get everything just right. No complaints, no excuses, and no deflecting blame on others. None. She takes 100% responsibility for all problems and then fixes them without any hesitation. Azurae is the consummate professional who is kind, robust, diligent, loving, and will advocate for the couple's wishes... no matter how crazy. Crazy advocacy... Let me tell you what she advocated for us: 1) for me to skydive into the wedding at a top name winery; 2) bringing wild animals from the zoo to roam the vineyard property; 3) female impersonators doing a vociferous show; 4) and a truly elegant wedding involving bucco vendors!! Complaints - well, no one is perfect. But, for the life of me, I cannot think of any complaints. Wait - not enough animals at the cocktail hour. The monkeys and kangaroos were no-show! Haha.Sent on 10/14/2014

We couldn't have had as wonderful a wedding if it weren't for Azurae and Ceil Bleu Event Design. She had a great impression of us after our first phone contact and from there she was able to make the perfect recommendations for our wedding. She has fantastic relationships with the local vendors and is incredibly easy to work with. Her recommendations for everything from the caterer to the restaurant to the venue et cetera were incredible. She helped take the stress off of us so we could concentrate on our guests and each other. Thank you, Azurae!!!Sent on 10/23/2014
