Best wedding Planner ever!!
I spent the last 13 months planning my wedding with Gina and I must say she has truly become a good friend of mine.
I knew she was the perfect person for me (an anal retentive, bit of a control freak type of lady...lol) when I found her profile late one night at work, filled out the inquiry form, and she responded in less than 10 minutes. Did I mention it was after 10:30pm? That pretty much sums up the type of person Gina is! Hardworking, never slacks with communication, and always willing to do whatever she can for clients.
As I went through the process, I could tell I was working with the best in San Diego because anytime I mentioned her name, vendors would go on and on about how great she was. There were several times I was able to get special discounts just because she was my planner. Gina is so knowledgeable about the wedding field, has the best connections, and isn't afraid to try new things. I loved that she always gave her honest opinion and always gave suggestions for things she thought I'd like. I dodge a lot of bullets because of her.
My wedding day was everything I envisioned and I know there was no way that could have been possible without Gina. People kept saying how surprised they were at how calm I was, but it was only because I knew I could trust Gina to make sure everything was perfect, even if issues popped up (which did happen but I knew NOTHING of them).
If you are looking for someone to help create the vision you have for your wedding and take the stress away from you so that you can enjoy your day.... look no further, Gina is your girl! She will always have a special place in my heart for helping me create one of the best days of my life!Sent on 09/30/2019

Gina is amazing!
Gina was awesome! I, of course, had many questions throughout the wedding planning process and she would always respond to either my text or email almost immediately, and if she didn’t have the answer right then she would always let me know she was checking on it. Gina was our planner through the whole process and i can honestly say I could not have done the planning process without her. She had wonderful recommendations for vendors, i.e. band, caterter, florist, and would coordinate communication with them all. She was super sweet and wonderful to work with, and day of the wedding set everything up perfectly and made everything seamless for my husband and I. I cannot say enough good things about Gina, so if you are looking for an awesome, organized, timely planner look no further! She was great and I am forever thankful to her for making our wedding everything we could’ve ever imagined.Sent on 09/29/2019

Gina is the best!
Gina was amazing! I would highly recommend her. She made my wedding day so easy and stress free. Every question or concern I had was answered either immediately or the next day. She is prompt, reliable and knows how keep everything organized while making sure all the boxes or checked. I can not say enough good things about this amazing wedding planner!Sent on 09/24/2019

Gina is Amazing!
Our wedding was amazing and everything went smoothly thanks to Gina. I had planned much of the wedding on my own and was looking for a day of coordinator. When I met Gina I was sorry that I did not book her when I first started planning because I think It would have made the planning experience less stressful and more enjoyable. Especially since she has so much experience and is beyond organized (Exactly what I was looking for since I am a bit OCD). Although we only hired her for a “Day of Coordinator”, she was available months before and even came along to the food tasting at the venue. I am so happy she was around to help out with everything. If you are looking for a wedding planner, book her now, you will not be sorry.Sent on 06/04/2019

Gina gave us an unforgettably PERFECT wedding and we are forever grateful! Because of her, we didn’t feel like our wedding day flew by - we felt like we were relishing in every moment. The day was effortless and fun for us because she took care of everything. Believe it or not, we were ahead of schedule all day. We didn’t have to waste any time, brain capacity or emotion dealing with a single issue or question because we were in good hands. We even got to sit down and eat!!! Gina came recommended by a coworker who had all the same wonderful things to say about her. Once we met her, we easily felt comfortable and loved her personality and knowledge of the wedding industry. From the beginning, she was able to take our thoughts and ideas and put them into motion. Her execution on the big day did not disappoint! She gives great, honest advice when needed and recommended THE BEST vendors. Leading up to our big day Gina was extremely responsive, organized and always on top of it. She is so fun, sweet, funny and professional. She took away any stress or anxiety we had about planning a wedding. We love Gina and highly recommend her!!! She will totally exceed your expectations ❤️Sent on 10/06/2018

Gina made sure that my wedding day was flawless. I’ve never seen a wedding be so “on time” and Gina made that happen for us. The months leading up to the wedding, she took over the planning and contacting of the vendors to make sure our big day went as smooth as possible. Big Indian weddings are not easy to coordinate but Gina and her assistant made sure that everyone felt comfortable and enjoyed themselves. Every bride and groom wants to feel like royalty on their big day and Gina made us feel like a prince and princess. And best of all, she did everything with a big smile. Gina is so easy to work with and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner. Her thoughtfulness and attention to detail is the reason we had such a successful and spectacular weekend!Sent on 08/07/2018

Gina is simply the best. I can't imagine why you would go with anyone else. Not only is she funny and down to earth, but she is INCREDIBLY patient. Planning a wedding from another city is never easy, but when you have people flying in from all over the world and are twice over your guest count, it becomes chaos. Gina answered all of my questions (sometimes several times over) and made the entire planning process easy and flawless. She recommended amazing vendors and followed up with them when I was unable. My wedding would not have gotten off the ground if it was not for Gina and I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding.Sent on 06/06/2018

We hired Gina as our May wedding coordinator and picked the “month of love” package. Gina is professional, very experienced, and EXTREMELY responsive. Oh boy, I think she usually replied my email RIGHT AWAY, not sure how she did it, but it was very comforting to me that she was there to help at any time, which was important as we were planning our wedding from a different state. I really liked Gina’s style and her suggested vendor lists, the ones that I picked were really great to work with and fits my version! Overall, our wedding went very smoothly, it was almost like a dream wedding came true for me, the best day! Thanks Gina!Sent on 07/01/2018

Where do I begin? My husband and I hired Gina to coordinate our wedding. She has a few packages and I honestly can't remember which package we chose because her service was beyond what we paid for. We had a few last minute changes and it went so smooth. Gina was always prompt to follow up and provided insight and ideas to help guide us through the decision process. I had zero stress the day of the wedding and everything was implemented and executed flawlessly. I would've paid ten times the amount we paid for her. Definitely worth the money.Sent on 05/11/2018

Gina is the best! We hired her as our "month of" planner, however, we saw her MANY times during our year of planning, and she was always available by phone, email, and text. She was able to refer us to so many outstanding vendors, and I think we used each and every one of her recommendations. She was such a pleasure to work with, my mom and I would actually make our meetings with her lunch meetings because it felt just like hanging with an old friend. Gina made the entire planning experience so fun, and also put me at ease because she is such a seasoned pro, you really don't have to worry about much. She was actually referred to us by our venue, which speaks volumes. She could literally run a wedding with her eyes closed, and I was so grateful to have her thoughts and honest opinions on any given details or questions I had throughout the entire process. She essentially acted as a full time planner for me, and I couldn't have asked for anything more-thank you Gina!Sent on 05/08/2018

Gina came highly recommended by a friend and we absolutely loved working with her! My fiance was skeptical about needing a coordinator, but quickly realized how much Gina would be helping us once we met with her. She walked us through all of the details and helped to keep me sane while I hashed out all of my ideas and concerns. Gina is calm but detail oriented, patient with the bride, and honest about expectations. She is very responsive and even though I knew that she had other weddings to tend to, I never felt like she didn't have time for me or that I was competing with another bride for her attention. We were initially unhappy with our venue and Gina was key in helping to turn all of that around, resulting in a day that was more perfect than I could have ever imagined!Sent on 10/23/2017

Gina is absolutely AMAZING! We planned a year out from our wedding and when Gina stepped in she just made everything less stressful and a lot more fun and simple. Me and my husband are originally from Pennsylvania and had no clue where to start with or wedding planning here in San Diego. Gina knows all the right places and all the right people. Most important, she listened to us and always delivered exactly what we asked for! When we asked for ANYTHING she got it done and made sure we were in touch with the best of the best. When I would ask her opinion she would know exactly how to help and gave the best advice. I really trusted her with our big day! We felt so comfortable with her and she made us feel at ease. She always remained calm, cool and collective...especially when we were freaking out! Her communication was outstanding and she was VERY EASY to get a hold of. Her responses were always quick and very detailed. Our wedding day turned out perfect and we owe it all to Gina! Thank you soooo much Gina you are seriously the best and you are so much fun to work with. We would recommend her to ANYBODY! If you want your wedding day to be everything you’ve ever dreamed of LEAVE IT TO GINA!Sent on 10/22/2017

Gina was beyond amazing, and I strongly recommend her! We did a destination wedding in SD (we live in the bay area, and then decided to travel to Africa and South America while planning our wedding). Gina is easy to communicate with, to get a hold of, she's incredibly responsive - which is important when you are living far away from your wedding venue. She helped us find phenomenal vendors - which is really important. She was a source of stability when our venue switched coordinators 3 times on us, and were very difficult to work with - Gina was there to help smooth out the process. We did some DIY stuff, and Gina helped make that happen on day of without me worrying about it. We did a super non-traditional wedding - Gina helped our visions become a reality. We are so happy we were able to work with her. Definitely make the decision to hire Gina as your wedding planner!!Sent on 09/18/2017

Gina is worthy of every single one of these amazing reviews! She is professional, responsive, and experienced. We liked her right away when we met her and enjoyed working with her throughout the process of planning our wedding. The day of, Gina took care of every detail, allowing us and our families to enjoy the wedding day stress-free. All of our guests commented on how efficient and professional she was. She was familiar with our venue and many of our other vendors. If you are having a wedding in San Diego Gina is the obvious choice!Sent on 09/30/2017

We used Gina as our day-of planner for our wedding this summer. She's AMAZING! We immediately felt comfortable with her, which is super important when you are trusting someone with one of the best days of your lives! She helped make everything run smoothly and if there was anything that wasn't running smoothly, I definitely didn't know about it (which is exactly what you want from a planner?) Gina, thank you so much for making our dreams a reality- we love you and wish we could do it all over again!Sent on 09/17/2017

Gina is AMAZING!!! Hands down the best decision we made for our wedding. From the moment I met her I knew she was the one! She is so responsive, I swear she doesn't sleep lol Always there to answer any questions, give advice and making sure everything ran smoothly. She's the best in the industry! She gave us the BEST recommendations for vendors and even got us discounts!! She was more than our planner, she became our friend. She made our wedding absolutely PERFECT! I highly recommend you hire her, it will be the best thing you do for your wedding. Simply cannot say enough amazing things about Gina, she's a wedding angel :)Sent on 06/14/2017

I cannot rave about Gina more! My husband and I are from Dallas, however, we wanted to get married in the San Diego/La Jolla area. I had found various vendors on The Knot and went out to visit them. A wedding coordinator was still up in the air. I asked the vendors I visited who they would recommend, knowing they work with many coordinators, and Gina's name was the first one out of EVERY single person's mouth!
My fiancé and I made another trip out there to meet with her and we were not disappointed. She has a fantastic personality, so she was easy to get along with, and she was very organized and detailed. She helped me with so many different aspects of my wedding, even though I had a rehearsal and day of package.
Gina went above and beyond for us, and it's clear that is just how she operates. I completely understand why every vendor I spoke to LOVES her, because I know Alec and I would have had a much different experience without her!
Thank you Gina! We are forever grateful to you for making our wedding so magical!Sent on 11/27/2017

Seriously the best decision we made with the wedding was working with Gina. From the minute I talked to her on the phone, I knew she was our girl. She's a wealth of information with an awesome easy going personality. On the days leading up to the wedding, (and especially the day of) she was so warm, helpful, and extremely detail oriented, mixed with this really wonderful, fun spirit. She took intricately detailed notes with such ease, was present with what we wanted, and I will recommend her to anyone at anytime. She went way above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we wanted it to be all while her warmth and positivity felt like she was one of our close friends. Gina is definitely doing exactly what her true calling is. We love her!!!!!!!Sent on 10/26/2016

Gina is AWESOME!!!! From the very beginning, she was the first planner to respond to us (literally within minutes) and she was hands down our favorite out of the ones we met with. We live in PA and were having our wedding in San Diego, so she was a life saver! She knew the vendors in the area well and her recommendations were spot on for what we wanted. The vendors spoke very highly of her as well. Through the entire process she was amazing. We loved how accessible she made herself. I could not be more pleased with how our wedding day turned out. It was everything we wanted. Gina is great to work with! I HIGHLY recommend her!Sent on 10/28/2016

Do yourself a favor and look no further! Pick GINA!! :) She's literally the best! She had done my cousin's wedding and the moment I got engaged, I knew I didn't want to look any elsewhere despite me being located in Northern CA. I had heard nothing but amazing things from my cousin so I wanted to jump right in! We booked her for partial wedding planning. From our first conversation, Gina established a great rapport, understood our vision, and set out a clear action plan. My work schedule is incredibly hectic so having her was my literally saving grace! Hands down, hiring her was one of the best decisions through out the wedding planning process. She kept on plan, was incredibly responsive, flexible, positive, and always looking out for our best interest with all the vendors. On the day of the wedding, my husband and I were able to focus on our big day and truly be in the moment - and we could only owe that to Gina. We had an amazing time and our guests raved about it as well! She's the best!!Sent on 09/05/2016

Gina was a God send for my (admittedly) easily overwhelmed brain. When something requires the many details that planning a wedding reception does, my first reaction is to procrastinate & "think about that tomorrow" but I'm SO happy/relieved/thankful that I found Gina (via a high recommendation) and allowed her to use her gift which comes quite easily to her. One woman's gift is another's spazz moment is all I got to say. She nailed down dates, decor, meetings, details, logistics, payments, timelines, food, comings & goings - all on her own. That is SO priceless. It was easy to see she was respected & well loved by the hotel where our event was & maintained a personal & proactive demeanor throughout the entire process. Easy to get ahold of - quick w/ responses. Our day was heart-locket special bc of her efforts & execution. Save the brain cells brides! Enjoy your day & let Gina play :)Sent on 08/13/2016

Gina was the perfect “right-hand woman” to be during the wedding planning process. Planning from 3,000 miles away, I knew from the start I would need at least some help from a coordinator. I interviewed a number of coordinators and was drawn to Gina due to her ideas, enthusiasm, and calm demeanor. It was immensely helpful to have Gina’s vendor recommendations (and then insight when deciding between different vendors) and to be able to ask her any question that came to mind. Although we were technically working with Gina “month of,” she met with us two times before the wedding and was willing to answer emails/calls throughout the planning process. Two weeks before the wedding, she completely took over and I was able to enjoy myself leading up to the wedding without worrying about the minutiae. On the day of, Gina was on top of everything and allowed me to just relax and enjoy my big day. I cannot say enough positive things about Gina – she is the perfect person to help you plan your day.Sent on 08/30/2016

Here's a little bit about my experience working with Gina...Sent on 08/30/2016
Gina was everything my little heart desired & more. I hired Gina as my day of event planner, but she was so much more that. When I was first shopping around for the perfect planner, Gina let me know she was happy to hop on the phone and chat through my plans and to see if I thought she might be a good fit. Being an event planner myself, I'm very particular about things, but also like to consider myself laid back (is that possible?). :) Not only was Gina incredibly organized throughout the entire process, but she made herself available via email and phone whenever I had a question. I was proud to have Gina as my wedding planner as all of the other vendors I worked with, had either worked with Gina or heard about her, and LOVED her. Gina was a shining star and made my day perfect and I would highly recommend hiring her for your wedding.
