I was engaged for 1 1/2 years before I got married but I literally started planning my wedding 3 months before my wedding. Yes, I am a procrastinator. Rachael became our wedding coordinator probably about a month before the wedding and it was probably the best choice we had ever made. The day of the wedding everyone kept asking me if I was nervous and I would answer "Nope" and I have to thank Rachael for that. She pretty much took care of everything for us. I think what we liked the most was the timeline that Rachael made for us and how everything was pretty much on time. There were a few things I had asked her to do and she did such a great job! By the way, thanks for going after the guests that almost got away with one of the centerpieces! =)
All in all, I would like to thank Rachael for helping my husband and I have such a wonderful and memorable wedding! We truly enjoyed ourselves and it was because we actually got to enjoy it and not have to worry about all the little things. Thank you again!!

Rachael is incredibly organized and responsive. She was super helpful. Her assistant Pedro is incredibly kind and just such a nice, approachable guy. Planning a wedding takes a lot of work, is incredibly stressful and the less you can do the better. Rachael makes sure all of the details are taken care of so you can fully enjoy your evening. If it weren't for Rachael I would have been stressed out the evening of my wedding because I would get caught up in the little details such as setting up the aisle, taking vases back up to the room, setting favors up on the place settings and so much more. Rachael also checked on my parents from time to time, which is invaluable. She ensured they got home safe and were taken care of all night. She also came to check on me a couple of times to see if I needed anything. The timeline is something every bride needs and yes, she did that too. Every bride needs a Rachael at their wedding. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy my wedding!!! I highly recommend working with her for your planning and event needs.

WOW is all I have to say about Rachael from Euphoria Weddings and Events. I was blessed with EXCELLENT vendors for the most part, but I was especially blessed with the Best Wedding Coordinator of this era! Rachael BLEW ME AWAY! I couldn't have asked for a better coordinator.
The journey leading up to the wedding took 8 months to plan...and let me emphasize, when I mean 8 months, I mean every single day for 8 months. Knowing how busy I was with law school, Rachael took it upon herself to plan my wedding and more. She was PHENOMENAL. She not only contacted my vendors and made appointments for me, but she also took care of any hiccups that arose with them. Trust me, there was one vendor who was especially difficult to work with, and Rachael took charge without me asking, and without me having to stress and deal with this vendor. Rachael made herself always available to me as well. We would have daily chats about the status of what needed to be done and what was complete. She was my support when I felt too tired to plan and kept me going!
Rachael is very organized and professional. She carries with her your files and receipts for vendors so that you are always informed about what the status of a particular item of your many items on your checklist is. She never lets the bride worry and never leaves the bride hanging.
She is always there when you need her - now this is something very unique about this Wedding Coordinator. I interviewed other coordinators who nickeled and dimed me and claimed that they charged by the second, for every call I made. Rachael? She was there in a heartbeat whenever I called her, even on weekends and late nights. When I told Rachael about my buyer's remorse for my first dress, she offered to come with me to do a second round of searching for dresses, and assured me that my decision to purchase a second gown was okay. She was my personal cheerleader, on top of being my wedding coordinator.
The weeks leading up to the wedding proved to be the most stressful for me, especially with one particular vendor. Rachael had numerous last minute conference calls with me and my vendors to make sure every single detail was not overlooked and to make sure we were all on the same page.
The best part about Rachael - She executed my event so FLAWLESSLY! First, she created two timelines for me that detailed the minute by minute, hour by hour, play by play of the wedding day. Why did she create two timelines? Because we weren't sure if it was going to rain on the day of wedding, we wanted to have a backup plan for photography and videography to accommodate the rain. Rachael was ready to execute either plan on the day of the wedding. She also coordinated with my wedding party and distributed the timelines to them so that everyone knew what to expect and what was expected of them on the day of the wedding. Rachael is so sensitive to the bride's needs as well - she took care to make sure that I was always happy, fed and relaxed on the big day. it is these little details that Rachael paid attention to that made the day flawless. as indicated above, SHE BLEW ME, MY HUSBAND AND MY GUESTS AWAY. We started the ceremony on time, had our photography session done on time, and arrived at and started the ceremony on time. The wedding was so organized and there was nothing that I noticed that went wrong with my special day.
If you want the BEST wedding coordinator out there, please choose Euphoria Weddings and Events. They are nothing short of the best and will make your day even better than you can ever imagine! THANK YOU RACHAEL! We will never forget our perfect day!

To whom it may concern,
Rachael Capella was an absolutely immense help in planning our beach wedding in Monterey, CA on October 24, 2010. We had particular challenges as I was living in London throughout the planning process and my fiancé was in California yet her communication made the planning process a joy. She was able to pull off out dream beach wedding on a limited budget and we could not have been happier with the way things turned out.
She also was there to do "day of" coordination and again Rachael exceed our expectations. This was the wisest money we spent because having her there really let us enjoy the evening with friends and family and not worry about any of the hundreds of details.
Rachael truly deserves the highest recommendation possible. You will certainly be in good hands with her.

Rachael was terrific! She helped us organize everything, and was a very calming when we had some MAJOR last minute changes because of the weather. She is very professional, has a lot of resources to draw from, and was very willing to do everything to make our day special! Thanks for everything, Rachael :)
