We were very pleased with Stacy. She was quick so solve any issues she was very responsive and on top of every detail and every situation. She makes it happen for you. I would highly recommend using her for your wedding because our wedding turned into the most magical night of our lives!

Stacy was wondeful to work with all throughout the year of planning, but particularly fabulous in the last stretch of a month or so before the wedding when the stress and anxiety really sets in. Stacy is so well experienced, she knows exactly what to do every step of the way and is extremely responsive and kind. I recommend her very very highly!

tl;dr - Hire Stacy. You won't regret it.
An organized bride needs 3 traits in a planner. Stacy has all of these in SPADES.
1. Responsiveness: Throughout the entire planning process, Stacy responded to every email and text right away. Most importantly, she gracefully handled having many different clients (my parents, my husband, me) and made everyone feel valued. We booked her platinum package and I cannot believe the value that we got for the price, when I think about how much time she spent with us over the course of the past year.
2. Professional judgment informed by experience: Stacy has done so many weddings that she knows exactly how to handle any situation. Very important for people planning with their families - she is highly diplomatic. On any issue, Stacy always has some data about what works well and what doesn't. In general, she is extremely accommodating and will work towards the vision you lay out - but if there's an idea or suggestion that she KNOWS will not work, she'll let you know in an objective way that a) saves you from your own terrible idea, and b) doesn't hurt anyone's feelings. In addition, she has a broad vendor list, which should work across many different budgets, so that you can splurge on what's important to you and stay lean on everything else.
3. Meticulous attention to detail: My husband and I are both crazy detail-oriented. From both of our perspectives - and, honestly, based on a lot of guest feedback - our wedding day went without a single hitch. Perhaps even more importantly, neither of us felt stressed at all, knowing that Stacy was handling everything discretely in the background.
PS If you're worried about the 2007 review below, rest assured that we had the exact opposite experience. Stacy not only stayed later than we did, but also ensured that everything was perfect for the brunch the morning after, and then personally delivered everything to our house. Working with her in 2016 was a dream.

Hiring Stacy and her team was one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding. Stacy was truly a joy to work with. She provided us with great recommendations and advice throughout the planning process. She did an excellent job coordinating our vendors and putting together our wedding schedule. Her coordinators, Kristina and Lauren, did a superb job making sure our wedding day went according to plan and was absolutely flawless. They kept everyone on time and took care of all the details and arrangements. We are so pleased and would recommend Stacy and her team a hundred times over! - Megan and Stephen

Stacy Porras is amazing!! She helped with every aspect of the wedding - gave us incredible advice and was extremely detail oriented. She was always calm with a smile, yet incredibly creative with her ideas. She listened to what my daughter wanted and was instrumental in making all our daughter's dreams and visions come through. if you don't think you need a wedding coordinator, you have never planned a wedding before! Even if you are super organized, Stacy goes above and beyond to make your day incredible and STRESS FREE! She is worth every penny 10 times over. If you want the perfect day hire Stacy Porras - it will be the smartest decision you ever made!

On the day of the wedding, Stacy and her staff were very professional and helpful. The wedding day went so smoothly without a single issue! Bottom line: Stacy is the best. She's professional, experienced and we had the best carefree wedding!

My daughter was married two weekends ago at Sherwood Country Club. After interviewing several wedding coordinators my daughter and myself met with Stacy. We immediately trusted her. She exceeded all our expectations. We received so many compliments about the wedding. She was a joy to work with!
Christen · Married on 07/26/2013
Claudia was great to work with! She was very helpful and organized and responsive to all my questions. On the day of the wedding her team was great!
ANGEL · Married on 07/06/2013
STACY ROCKS. There is nothing i can say here that will give Stacy the recognition she deserves as a wedding planner. From the first moment we met, i knew she would be involved with the planning of our most special day. And, since then, i haven't looked back. Stacy assisted with the full time planning of my 200+ guest wedding. The wedding so far exceeded our expectations that we almost can't believe that was "our day." Stacy is the utmost professional, and brings with her 20+ years of expertise in the wedding and hotel industries. Her resume is bar none and her true passion for the job shines through at every turn. Stacy has a number of strengths that bear special recognition:
1. She is always on time and returns calls/emails without delay. Simply "on top of it."
2. Stacy will be the most enthusiastic and optimistic person you will meet in the industry. She takes time to get to know you as a couple and tailors her suggestions and planning around your identities. She listens carefully to your thoughts and pairs you with the most qualified vendors.
3. She charges too little for the amount of work she does. Stacy's in the job because she loves it. And it shows. But, for the amount of hours she spends talking through every little detail she's underpaid.
4. While she possesses an amazingly nurturing personality, Stacy is strict when she needs to be with vendors. She will bargain on your behalf for the best deal and express dissatisfaction when necessary.
I have many more positive points i could make but i've run out of space. All you need to do is call her and meet her. Everything else will flow from there and I guarantee you ... she will wow you. Stacy gave us the wedding of our dreams and for that we will be forever grateful. But, more importantly, all around, she's a kick butt person and you'll have a great time getting to know her.

If you are looking for a well organized, genuine, creative, professional and all around fantastic wedding coordinator, Stacy Porras is the one for you!!! Stacy understood my vision and made it come to life!! She recommended wonderful vendors all of which suited us perfectly. Stacy is ethical, caring, extremely reliable and has excellent follow through! My wedding was perfect thanks to Stacy!!!
Summer · Married on 06/15/2013
The. Best. Ever. I am so happy we went with Stacy as our wedding coordinator. She knows her stuff and is extremely professional. She has a ton of contacts, and if we did not like a vendor, she easily had another one for us to meet with. She is very responsive and worked really well with our venue to make sure everything was taken care of. I even forgot the marriage license (of all things!) and without hesitation Stacy had an assistant on her way to pick it up. She does not miss a beat! If you are looking for a true professional and want a stress free day, go with Stacy! I promise you will not be disappointed.

Claudia and here team were knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and incredibly well organized. My daughter's wedding was not only beautiful but timed perfectly thanks to Claudia and her team. The event planning team arrived early, made sure the bride was taken care of, coordinated with all the vendors, perfectly placed all the wedding novelties my daughter had made, and ensured the wedding events went off as planned. Incredibly, Claudia and her team did all this great event planning without being noticed. They quietly worked in the background, communicating with each other, and adapting perfectly to the flow of the wedding. I couldn't be more pleased with the product from Stacy Porras Wedding Consultants. The proof of their great work is in the overwhelming positive responses from the guests and the wedding party. Normally, wedding guests are positive about a wedding but in my daughter's case they could not stop saying how the wedding was uniquely beautiful, well planned, and extremely welcoming. It is three weeks later and we are still receiving emails, cards, and phone calls from guests saying how much they enjoyed the wedding and how blessed they were to join us in my daughter's and new son-in-law's wedding celebration.
Stacy · Married on 06/08/2013
Having Claudia as our wedding coordinator was a dream, and the experience was nothing less than spectacular! Claudia was beyond amazing, and she made the months leading up to our wedding to the day of our wedding so much less stressful by really taking charge, and coordinating between all our vendors for us so that things ran smoothly on our big day... Claudia and her team executed our vision perfectly, and I never had to worry about the details because Claudia and her team had them covered.
During the planning process, Claudia always made herself available to help answer any questions that I had, whether it was to help provide suggestions, fun ideas, or to solve a conundrum, Claudia was always so sweet and extremely helpful :)
Several of our family members, friends, and our wedding party commented on how wonderful Claudia and her team were, and how our wedding was the MOST organized wedding they have ever been to! There professionalism, talent, and knowledge of this business made our wedding PERFECT!!! I would look no further than Stacy Porras Wedding Consulting, and I would HIGHLY recommend Claudia!

Stacy Porras was by far the BEST investment I made for my wedding this past weekend. From the first time I spoke with her on the phone, I knew I wanted her as my wedding planner. She is detail-oriented, organized, professional, and executes everything perfectly... with a huge smile on her face.
Working with, coordinating and directing 14 different vendors can't be an easy task. But the entire wedding went perfectly all thanks to Stacy and her team. She's been doing this for a long time and it shows. She is on top of everything! I didn't have to worry about a single thing on my wedding day because I knew I was in great hands. Her team was everywhere I needed them to be. I can't say enough good things about Stacy... I had the best wedding thanks to her!!!!!! THANK YOU STACY PORRAS & TEAM!!!!
Ana · Married on 10/27/2012
I could not be more pleased and happy with Stacy Porras wedding consulting! They are definitely the BEST!! Stacy was constantly making us feel at ease without stressing out, Claudia always making sure she was on top of all the details, and Vanessa for all the hand holding she did on our special day!! Everything we had envision became a reality that day. Thank you ladies so much! You all made our day extra special.
Susan · Married on 09/01/2012
I'm finally recovered from all the excitement of the wedding. I wanted to tell you how wonderful the wedding was and what a pleasure it was to work with you and your team. From the start, you were on top of things and I marveled at how quickly you followed up on our phone calls and all the wedding timeline details. Both the rehearsal and the wedding day went more smoothly than I could ever have imagined and I know a lot of the reason for that was how well organized you are and how seamlessly you coordinated all the loose ends. I also appreciated your relaxed demeanor which helped all of us to feel relaxed as well. Vanessa was so sweet and patient with the wedding party.
Dara and Timur were thrilled with their wedding as was my husband and me and Timur's parents. It was truly all we could have imagined and hoped for. Thank you so much for being such an invaluable part of this awesome experience.
Gilda · Married on 08/25/2012
Claudia was an amazing wedding coordinator!!! I will admit I was a very detail oriented bride and wanted everything done in a particular way. Claudia and her team made it happen. I had written out every detail thinking but never imagined anyone could make it all happen, but Claudia made it happen.
Leading to the wedding Claudia kept in constant contact via email, helped me make sure everything was on track. The day of she and her team mad sure everything went according to our schedule.
I would highly recommend Claudia!!
Sara · Married on 08/05/2012
Stacy was truly amazing in every way and made planning my wedding so much easier and enjoyable! She always made me feel better about the process and reassured me when I needed it most! And in the end, she was absolutely right, the event turned out beautiful and was everything I had imagined! She was extremely flexible with my crazy work schedule and very responsive to email/text/phone calls. She was always a pleasure to speak to and as excited about my planning my event as I was! She's the best!
THANK YOU SOO MUCH STACY!!!

We had our wedding at the the kyoto Hotel; which in turn we were able to get exclusive treatment with Stacy Porras due to her being the number one wedding coordinator that works with the hotel. And upon meeting with Stacy herself; we were both able to release a major sigh of relief. Her and her team of magicians were extremely professional and down to earth; Claudia was our main coordinator and she was beyond awesome. Every step to our day was made easier by them. We usually wouldn't be the people that would use a wedding planner/coordinator; but after our experience leading up to the day and on the day of, we would highly recommend them to any couple.

Claudia was a phenomenal coordinator. Our first meeting was great - she took so many small things off my plate and made me feel organized and at ease. She was sweet and helpful during the rehearsal and very helpful and organized during the wedding. Nothing went wrong - and I knew she and her team made sure of it. They each had a radio with them, so if I needed something from the room, I asked, and it was there. She even helped us deal with another vendor who screwed up a few things. I went to a friend's wedding recently and saw another coordinator in action. This other coordinator was rude and not nearly as helpful - making me realize that Claudia + team are truly wonderful! They are organized, reliable, responsive and sweet - all you really need.
Rowena · Married on 05/06/2012
Stacy and her girls made our wedding run butter-smooth! My groom and I were so relaxed and happy during my wedding because we had complete trust in their coordination. You cannot top Stacy's 20+ years of experience in event planning as well as her sweet personality, always reassuring and professional. She is quick and detailed-oriented making the necessary adjustments on the wedding day in order to make our special day PERFECT! The best part is that every family member and close friend were able to enjoy the wedding because we had so much support from Stacy's team.
Natalie · Married on 03/24/2012
Stacy and her team are amazing! Stacy handles all these details you wouldn't even think would come up but she has it all well in hand. The wedding day itself moves so quickly and Stacy and her assistants make sure to keep you on track. The ladies she employees are also sweet and very capable and so professional. Having a wedding coordinator/planner was the one vendor my husband and I didn't think we needed but she ended up being the most important! All our guests were also very impressed by team Stacy.
