I must be honest and say I was reluctant to use a wedding planner. We wanted to do it all ourself! We had a good start, my daughter knows what she wanted, an Eastern Sierras destination wedding. We are from L.A. and I didn't know the complexity of a wedding at high altitude. I am the mother of the bride and was unsure of contacts at the mountain resorts. We met Sandra at a wedding expo at Mammoth's Westin Hotel. We listened to her talk about differences at a mountain wedding. Her no stress approach sold me. Sandra and team were able to assist my needs with our daughters, and put it all together with our budget in mind too! We had no idea of the manpower it takes for all the movement needed. (and the park services' pass and 4wd). Church venue, flowers, table decor, chalet decor, organization and timing of all fun filled wedding events of the day. She took the stress off of us as her team worked beautifully under the scene creating our daughters dream wedding. Honestly, there is no way we could have given her a more beautiful wedding. Thank-you Green Fox we highly recommend you. (would use them again). My girlfriend was so impressed she wanted to use her in LA!Sent on 11/11/2016

Green Fox Events (specifically Cara and Sandra) helped us coordinate our wedding in stunning Kerry Meadow in Mammoth Lakes. When we were asked if there was anything about our wedding day that we would change or didn't go right, we couldn't think of a single thing. And GFE was absolutely part of the reason for that.Sent on 08/19/2016
We already had a very specific vision for what we wanted to our wedding and I was willing to do a lot of the legwork choosing the vendors, so we ended up booking a week-of package with them. Even though we are once-a-year Mammoth regulars, it was going to be tough planning a wedding from a different state, so they were incredibly helpful throughout the entire year leading up to our wedding. They sent us tons of tons of vendor recommendations that we were super happy with!
Where Green Fox Events really shines is the week and day of the wedding. I didn't have to stress or worry about ANYTHING. We had DIY'ed a lot of the decorations and details of the wedding (flowers, favors, signs, etc.), and we seamlessly handed off everything to Cara and she and her staff set it all up beautifully!!! Not only that, but they coordinated a ridiculous schedule for the rental set up (due to the Forest Service - the only big blip in the whole plan that I panicked about they handled amazingly) and the entire day went off without a hitch! It was perfect.
We can't imagine better people to have helped us with our wedding. It was better than we ever dreamed it would be. In all honestly I was very reluctant to pay for a wedding coordinator, but they are worth every single penny. We would work with them again in a heart. Thank you guys!!!
Green Fox Events & Guest Services's reply:Alyssa, the feelings are mutual! We truly enjoyed working with you and would again if given the chance. We wish you all the best.

As another local wedding vendor, I have worked with Sandra and her team for countless events. Working with the Green Fox Event team is always amazing! They are professional, organized and fun. Working with them is always a pleasure, and brings peace of mind knowing the event will be flawless and successful...because they take care of everything!Sent on 12/16/2015

Green Fox Events helped me so much with my wedding. I had an outdoor wedding in a very remote campground, without even cell service. We needed everything from the tent to the generators to power the lights and music. We even needed the porta potties! With that said, our list of vendors and rental lists was LONG. There was so much communication and logistics necessary to make our wedding happen. They handled it. I don't understand how they remember every single detail, large to teeny tiny, but they did. These girls live and breath coordination, and it showed every time we met. I had someone with me the day before setting up from 10-6, and two people (one in the morning and one at night) the day of my wedding. I never felt out of control, stressed, and knew my event was in good hands. I left to get ready and was not bothered a single time with questions or decisions. I left it in their willing and able hands, and my wedding went down as the best day of not only me and my husbands life, but quite a few others as well! People are STILL talking about how it was the best wedding they'd attended, and I know it's all thanks to my girls at Green Fox!Sent on 12/16/2015
Green Fox Events & Guest Services's reply:Thank you so much for the nice words and for including us, Daryl! We love looking at your wedding photos. You, your family, and friends have all been so gracious. Happy first Holidays as married couple!

Sandra and the GFE Team did an outstanding job with our son and his fiancé's reception dinner and surrounding events. Sandra's organization and professionalism were excellent. We couldn't have been more pleased. I highly recommend her and the GFE Team!Sent on 12/17/2015

Where to begin?Sent on 11/15/2017
To start, having a destination wedding isn't easy…unless you have Green Fox. Sandra, Cara, and their team will go above and beyond for you. What ever you ask for, they deliver it and more. The coordinating, the details, the vendors, and so much more is handled with professionalism and class and yet they still make you feel like family.
So just a little low down on our wedding weekend. We reserved Pokonobe Lodge for a “Welcome Dinner” the night before our wedding, where we had a taco truck and kayaks and standup paddle boards available for our guests to use on the lake. The next day, our ceremony was at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church and our reception was at Hayden Cabin.
It rained during our ceremony but cleared up in time for us to enjoy cocktail hour with our guests. When we were seated for dinner, it started pouring again! And we’re talking cats and dogs. Did that stop the Green Fox crew? NO WAY!! While we and our guests had shelter and enjoyed our delicious dinner catered by BLEU, (best food in town, shout out to Brandon and Theresa) the Green Fox crew worked diligently to keep us dry. As they got soaked, their smiles never stopped and their desire to help never ceased. The moment the summer thunder storm cleared, Sandra and Cara had that dance floor dried and we were able to dance the night away with our guests.
Mammoth has always been a special place to my wife and me. We felt we were taking a risk having a destination wedding, but we are so happy that we did. Not only was it the best, most memorable weekend of our lives, but our guests are still talking about it two years later! How it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. And without a doubt, hands down, we owe that to Green Fox. We could never thank them enough.
If you’re thinking of planning a wedding or an event in Mammoth, California and you want it to be unforgettable, and filled with laughs and love, don’t think twice about hiring Green Fox to make it happen.
Green Fox Events & Guest Services's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words! It was such a pleasure getting to know you both, and your family and friends. We constantly reminisce about your wedding and how beautiful everything was. We were so honored to plan your big day, and are so happy to now call you friends :)

As someone who has no eye (or patience) for design, Green Fox Events was a dream come true. I got the beautiful, elegant mountain wedding that I wanted without any of the hassle. Green Fox handled all the details and created a lovely design that complemented the mountain landscape perfectly. My family and I were able to fully enjoy and appreciate the wedding because we didn't have to deal with all the stress and effort of having to plan or execute it!Sent on 07/29/2015
Working with Cara was easy and she was always very pleasant, organized, professional. She and Sandra handled all the interactions with vendors, negotiated contracts, created designs for ceremony and reception spaces, and remembered to plan every last detail so that my day went off without a hitch. I was able to simply show up on my wedding day and everything was taken care of. I even was able to go hiking the morning of my wedding!
If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, I would highly recommend Green Fox Events. I couldn't have asked for more :)
April · Married on 05/30/2015
Like another reviewer said, I wish I could give more than 5 stars! My husband and I hired Sandra and Cara to help us plan our wedding in Bishop, and they were wonderful.Sent on 06/04/2015
- They are professional and detail oriented, and even better, so much fun and a total delight to work with.
- We did consultation calls for a few months leading up to the wedding where they gave us tons of excellent recommendations for vendors. Our florist made the most beautiful bouquet and center pieces. Our band was unbelievably good, turning the end of our reception into a dance party. All thanks to the GFE recommendations!!!
- We changed our ceremony venue 2 days before the wedding due to cold weather in the mountains. I thought this was potentially going to be a disaster, but it was no big deal for GFE. All the vendors were in place, the ceremony was gorgeous, and everything went perfectly.
- A week or so before the ceremony, we found out the PA system we’d rented for the ceremony didn’t have a cordless mic. I was emailing back and forth with party supplier when he responded “Never mind! Sandra worked it out!”
- We weren’t planning to rent special linens for the reception, but GFE suggested some affordable rental options, so we were able to dress up the tables, and they looked amaaazing.
- They took care of a million tiny details we would never have thought of. They came up with an open seating diagram for the reception, saved us appetizers to enjoy after the ceremony photos, made custom place cards for our late rsvp’s, brought platters for our desserts, set up a pretty driving sign for the ceremony so our guests knew where to go, set up a bowl for gift cards at the reception, and on and on and on.
Thank you so much, Sandra and Cara, for everything!
Brian and Kaitlin · Married on 10/11/2014
Let me tell you a story: once upon a time there was a beautiful, smart, incredible woman named Kaitlin (my soon-to-be wife at the time) and her adorable, awesome, fantastic, incredible, intelligent (too much?) soon-to-be-husband. They lived in Los Angeles, but wanted an amazing wedding in Mammoth Lakes. So after a little digging, they found Green Fox Events & Guest Services. Who is Green Fox? Well, let me tell you: the best thing that could ever happen to your wedding. Sandra and her team (special shout out to Cara and Kristy) are top-notch. They are experienced, professional and amazing people to work with.Sent on 02/08/2015
Don't want to spend the money? First, don't be stupid. Second, they get valuable discounts that makes their services almost a wash in the end anyway. Lastly, c'mon, they're amazing!!!
Now let me tell you how the story ends: my wife and I got married without a hitch. Seriously, not one. Have you ever heard of absolutely nothing going wrong at a wedding? Me neither.
Look, I can't guarantee that NOTHING will go wrong at your wedding, either. However, I can guarantee that without Green Fox, you're living dangerously.
Book them. Now. Seriously - right now. What are you waiting for?
Thank you so so so much, Sandra & Team!!!!!!!!! 5 stars isn't anywhere near enough, but it's as high as Wedding Wire will let me go. We love you!!!!!

alan · Married on 10/04/2014
I must admit that it took me a while to warm up to Sandra - I was reluctant to use a wedding planner (my mom made me do it, but she paid for it too!) Very quickly, I realized how big a project our dream wedding was - and she helped it to materialize. Going through the photos today, I was reminded of what a great/beautiful day it was and I still get weekly compliments on the entire wedding (more than 2 months later) - ceremony, location, food, hair, dress - everything that Sandra helped us with. We did a part "home-made" part big-fancy wedding, and it was essential to have a professional to help us organize it. Thanks!Sent on 12/15/2014
Green Fox Events & Guest Services's reply:Hi Alan! Thanks so much for these kind words. The feelings are mutual. We loved working with you and your families. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

I cannot say enough good things about Green Fox Events and the wedding guru Sandra. She helped me work through so many things, details, issues, concerns and ALWAYS put my mind at ease. The "No Stress Allowed" motto is true. I would let Sandra know of a concern (or major freak out) and she took it from there to resolution. I had a particularly difficult to manage venue that came with a caterer. A bit of a nightmare. Sandra is what kept me sane in dealing with the traumas and dramas of that experience (hello unreturned phone calls and emails, no written agreement until the Tuesday before the event, having to repeat requests over and over in writing and verbally...).Sent on 08/18/2014
I relied on Sandra to be our expert and never looked back. I had no worries on the days leading up to our event because she had it all handled. And on the day of our wedding, my hubby and I took in every single wonderful moment without a worry because she had it all flowing beautifully. She also managed to return each and every item that we delivered to the venue for our celebration - and as a DIY bride, we had A LOT! Green Fox also provided a bunch of great and fun rentals.
Sandra was an amazing resource. She won't just send you a list of hairdressers and florists. Instead, she met with us to get to know us before going on to make recommendations for vendors so she had an idea of what styles would work for us.
In addition to just being an expert and super professional, knowledgeable, organized and responsive, Sandra and her team were also so much fun to work with. We laughed a lot. I want to do it all again (minus that caterer probably!). I highly recommend Sandra and her team. You will be in the best hands ever!

Brandon · Married on 07/12/2014
I'm a Mammoth wedding photographer and I've done countless weddings with Sandra and the Green Fox crew. I've also had a lot of friends and clients use their services for their weddings and events. The response from everybody has been 100-percent positive and, without question, she facilitates everything we do in a way that few others can. They are a fantastic liaison between the clients and vendors, they make otherwise stressed out brides forget they're even planning a wedding, and they make sure the flow of the day runs like clockwork. In an area with volatile weather and last minute issues that only a rural mountain community like Mammoth tends to face, they handle any circumstance with grace and a calm demeanor. That's not a ubiquitous thing in this industry and it rubs off of on clients and vendors. Whenever I see that we're working a wedding together, I know I don't have much to worry about and that everything will fall into place and the photos will look great.Sent on 12/16/2015

Green Fox, Sandra and Cara, are without a doubt, your one-stop, worry-free event planning shop! We worked with Green Fox for our wedding at Sierra Meadows Ranch and everything was absolutely wonderful. What is so awesome about working with them, is that they understand everyone is not a cookie cutter of past clients, and therefore, do not cram you into a particular pre-set package. They are willing customize their services to best fit your needs. Not only do they know everyone in town and the greater region, they have built so many long-standing relationships with other vendors and have great rapport throughout the community. This was such peace of mind for us, considering we were planning our wedding from Southern California. Mammoth is such a small area, that it can be a challenge to find everything you need on your own. Sandra and Cara have all the connections you'll need!Sent on 09/08/2014
The Green Fox team is full of fun, interesting and creative ideas, but also loves learning from and collaborating with their client. We never felt like anything we asked for or suggested was frowned upon, but instead, met with a "let's see how we can make that happen!" approach. They're week-of and day-of services are worth every penny. All our family members who helped out, said how professional and lovely both Sandra and Cara were and how much they enjoyed working with them. My husband's Aunt is does floral for loads of special events and said that they were one of the best events teams she has ever worked with. Their fresh and positive attitudes were always so reassuring - there was never a time that we felt that they didn't have everything in complete control. Can't wait to visit GFE next time we are up in Mammoth. They truly do create that kind of lasting relationship with their clients.

Green Fox Events helped make our wedding a great success. They were friendly, professional, and helped ease SO many of the little stresses that can show up in the planning of a wedding. They were good leaders, communicators, and they supported us to design the wedding we wanted. I would recommend them in a heartbeat!Sent on 10/17/2013

Green Fox Events are the best wedding planners ever! They gave amazing advice, helped with my invitations, wedding website, dealt with all the vendors, and got me the best deals with them all. Not based in mammoth, I couldn't have done it without them! Best value for money ever - bride's, there's no value you can beat than a coordinator for the week of! Especially if your wedding is a destination wedding, take all the time you can get to enjoy it with your guests, whilst knowing every detail is taken care of by Sandra and her team.Sent on 12/11/2013
Allison · Married on 07/06/2013
When my significant other asked me to marry him, I didn’t know if I wanted to have a wedding or not. We both grew up in Mammoth, so having a small, non-traditional wedding was a compromise we both agreed on. I had been in a wedding that Sandra coordinated, and I knew immediately that she was the woman for the job.Sent on 10/23/2013
Sandra and the Green Fox team were amazing. From day 1 of wedding planning, Sandra was on my side. She supported me, helped me solidify ideas, helped me trouble shoot, offered resources, and carried out my plans. We met a lot, did monthly phone conferences, and sent tons of emails back and forth. I always felt supported and cared for without being pressured to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with. Planning was made so easy and fun.
The week of the wedding was never stressful or overwhelming. I handed everything to the Green Fox team, and they took care of it. They were wonderful in dealing with both my family and the vendors.
My wedding was beautiful, fun, and more than I ever dreamed it could be. Green Fox helped me carry out my vision exactly the way I wanted it without stress, huge financial burden, or compromise.
I highly recommend working with Green Fox if you are having a wedding in Mammoth. Sandra knows and works well with all the local vendors. She is your guide to success for a Mammoth wedding. I wish I could do it again! She will be included in all of our major party planning in the future

I asked Sandra DiDomizio at Green Fox Events to be my wedding coordinator this past June. Sandra advised me completely through the planning stages of my wedding: resources, details to think about in regards to decorations, table settings, and event layout, which was held at The Double Eagle Spa & Resort in June Lake, CA.Sent on 07/27/2013
So well and thorough was her tutelage, that when the day of the wedding finally arrived, Green Fox Events pulled the day off without a hitch. My husband and I literally spent the entire day visiting with family and friends: the wedding was absolutely everything I had envisioned and more.
Green Fox has an "M.O", and that is "No Stress Allowed". Guess what? No stress was allowed and all fell together beautifully.
A special thanks to Theresa and Camille who coordinated the event the actual day of the wedding.

Sandra and her girls in green are one of a kind. I got married on June 22nd, 2013 at Convict Lake and had my reception at Tallus Residence Club. I seriously could not have done it without Sandra. There was more than one bump along the wedding planning road, but because of Sandra's experience, initiative, and professionalism I was able to enjoy the happiest day of my life stress-free. I would not recommend going with anyone else. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH GREEN FOX!Sent on 10/08/2013

Sandra and Sarah at Green Fox planned our intimate wedding on top of the mountain in Mammoth just a couple of weeks ago. I have to say that my husband and I are thrilled with the outcome. They really listened to our requests and planned it exactly how I had imagined, even better. It was so romantic with rose petals and candles, violin and cello playing and the perfect officiant. Carrie did my hair and make up and I loved it plus we had fun doing it. Brandon at Minaret Photography was also the perfect choice. We like more "action" shots and not so much posing and he understood exactly. We have seen some of the photos and they look outstanding. Meghan and Mammoth Mountain was also evolved in the planning and very accommodating. Skadi delivered a 5 course meal and it was absolutely fantastic.Sent on 12/29/2011
Thanks to all of you for making our day the most special day ever. Perfection! We feel like Mammoth is our mountain now!!
Blaire · Married on 03/06/2010
We totally lucked out with Sandra. We found her by reaching out to a few local wedding planners and she was the first one to return our inquiry. From that initial contact, however, we knew she was the one for us. Planning a wedding, it turns out, can be kind of stressful! and emotional! and difficult! throw in the fact that I (the bride) was working full time and also lived 6 hours down the mountain and the task seemed downright impossible. Enter Sandra. With her motto "NO STRESS" and her cheerful, energetic, positive attitude she literally talked me off the proverbial ledge more times than I can count. By the time we got married I felt like she was family. We had a tiny budget, a very specific vision, and probably very unrealistic expectations but Sandra was unfazed. She networked with local vendors to get us the very best deals and gave us tons of ideas of ways we could cut costs including how to do some of the small things ourselves. Most of all she was there for everything on the day of the wedding and even for the brunch on the day after she worked so hard. We didn't have to worry about a thing and even though our wedding day had a lot of "moving parts" everything went off without a hitch. Our wedding was a huge success people to this day (nearly 5 years later) still comment on how unique, fun and memorable it was. Thank you so much Sandra for making our dream wedding a possibility!Sent on 12/18/2014

Christie · Married on 03/03/2009
I frequently recommend Sandra to brides who struggle to plan their Mammoth Lakes or Eastern Sierra wedding. There are so many details and quirks about this area. Weird weather, unresponsive vendors, forest service permits can all be stressful for a destination bride to deal with. Sandra has been planning events and weddings for years and has built strong relationships with the vendor community and has dealt with almost every problem or issue that can arise during a wedding or event.Sent on 12/19/2015
On a more personal note, I've worked with Sandra on the Mammoth Lakes Event and Wedding Expo as well as attended other wedding expos and events she has planned. She's not only organized she's super positive and upbeat. Her tagline "no stress allowed" is not just a slogan, it's a way of life for her. I just love collaborating with her.
At the events, Sandra and her staff prove themselves to be consistently professional and creative. They are all equally positive and helpful, and if anything should go wrong, you'd never know it. They truly are resourceful and I have enjoyed every event that I've attended that was planned by Green Fox Events.
Jenny · Married on 09/16/2017
I hired Green Fox to be my day-of coordinators. I planned the entire thing myself, bouncing questions off of them here and there. They were always quick to respond. My wedding was the first to be held at the venue, and I know they weren't sure about it when I first told them where it was going to be, but it all worked out great. Carole sent me an outline to create the timeline and vendor list, which was very helpful. She was there to help with the rehearsal and set up the morning of, and from my stand point, everything went great! If there were any hiccups, I was unaware, which I appreciate.Sent on 09/20/2017

We contacted Green Fox with only a couple months to go, and I was incredibly impressed by how quickly they helped us pull everything together.
