When I first hired a day of wedding coordinator I expected somebody who is just going to be involved at the very final stages of the process. Jamie right from the beginning was very involved, very organized, and full of information to make our day run smoothly. He always made us feel as though we were the only wedding he was coordinating. Would hire him again in a heartbeat.Sent on 07/23/2019

Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:I can only say that your wedding was so much more than expected and one that I will never forget! I can't believe that we found out that our families all knew each other when we were kids and that I most likely used to play with your Mom when we were kids at the Cox Cable company picnics, it is such a small world. It was meant to be that I had to be a part of such an incredible and special wedding that looked like it came out of a venue in Kentucky, BEAUTIFUL! Thank you so much for the honor and I am humbled to be a part of such an fabulous wedding.

Our experience with Stylish Weddings & Events
I have so many wonderful things to say about Jamie and the Stylish Weddings & Events Team!
They are amazingly efficient and everything they did, from the planning to execution of our day, was way above our expectations.
Our day was completely stress free (minus the nerves of course lol)
Jaime had such wonderfully creative ideas anytime we were missing something or plans fell through. He is such a knowledgeable person and he worked diligently to make sure everything was magical.
My husband and I are unconventional people and didn’t want a “typical” wedding. Jaime not only listened to our vision but made it happen flawlessly.
This team is amazing and has such a great leader. Jaime really cared about us and our wedding and we could tell that we weren’t just a “gig” to him. He really enjoys what he does and he does it with great care.
Our wedding day was amazing because we had him. If you are looking for someone to coordinate your wedding, don’t do it yourself. Choose Stylish Weddings & Events!

We are eternally grateful to Jaime for making our wedding day the best day of our lives
Where do we begin!?Sent on 11/12/2019
Our wedding was so incredible half the guests came up to us and told us throughout the night that this was the BEST wedding they had ever been to. -This is because we were lucky enough to meet and hire Jaime Soto who made our wedding night everything we could have wished for. Jaime isn’t just a wedding planner, he is also an amazing wedding designer and coordinator.
We met Jaime at a wedding show and liked him right away. We were looking for someone who could be hands on with us as we both had significant work commitments going on during the typical planning process. Despite this challenge, we still wanted to have a wedding that we and our beloved family and friends would remember.
We had our wedding at the Prado at balboa park. We had an insane number of vendors that Jaime coordinated with on our behalf. He was available to meet with us and each of the vendors anytime we needed him. We utilized a lot of outside vendors so having someone who had so many established vendor relationships of varied styles and pricing was extremely helpful in the overall production of the wedding.
We were blown away with Jaime’s overall level of attentiveness and tenacity. You can throw basically anything at him and he can handle it. Even more, he is so kind and upbeat even when we’re under the gun and the pressure is on. We found that the investment in a full package wedding planner, specially Jaime, was the smartest decision we made. It can be a little nerve wrecking trying to find a great wedding planner so I’m writing this to help all those brides to be who might be looking for a phenomenal wedding planner. Jaime has the best personality, and takes so much of the stress away. Most importantly, you will enjoy working with Jaime because he always keeps things upbeat and when your special day finally arrives, you will have him there every step of the way making sure your wedding day
is just perfect!
Jaime- Jason and I are eternally grateful to you for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. You are truly a gem.
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:Lauren and Jason, where to start except that it was an honor to be there for one of the most important days of your life. Both of you made my job exciting and challenging which woke up the beast in me to create with you the most beautiful and exciting wedding. I am looking forward to our friendship that happened during the months we spent with each other. Congratulations again and thank you for the kind words, to our futire friendship!

jaime is a real professional and did an amazing job
Jaime did an amazing job. I wasn't comfortable with someone else planning my wedding but He understood what we wanted and did his best to realize our dream wedding. He was always available. We had good communication with him. He even thought about details we didnt!!! On top of that he is a great person. If you need a wedding planner, don't look further, he is the person you need!Sent on 03/11/2019
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:Thank you, Lisa, I had a wonderful time helping you and Joshua plan your destination wedding that was truly beautiful and oh so very special at the Westgate Hotel. It was all my pleasure to be there for you both and for your guests. Congratulations again on being a newlywed!!!

Coudn't ask for anyone better
My fiance and I met Jaime at Bridal Bazaar Show in Downtown San Diego. After speaking with at the show, we knew he was the right person to make our wedding memorable. He worked with us for over a year and made the process very easy. Without him, we would be lost. My fiance and I were planning a simple wedding where Jaime turned it into traditional wedding which displayed different cultures coming together. He had all the right vendors at the right price and they all did a great job. We had frequent meetings and he was never late nor cancelled any appointments. Everyone in our family loved are wedding and labeled it best wedding ever. Some also stated that it looked a beautiful love story and a dream wedding that they have been part of. Thanks Jaime for all your hard work and making this our dream wedding.Sent on 05/13/2019
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:Most of all I want to tell you that it was such an honor and a wonderful journey over the past year getting to know you, Maria and Amisha and helping you plan a perfect wedding. Also, congratulations on Baby #2 now coming this year. All my couples that have married are pregnant soon after the wedding. I look forward to our friendship in the coming years. Thank you for having me be a part of one of the most important days of your life!

Wonderful New Year's Eve Wedding and More
I am the mother of a bride, Molly, who was very recently married on New Year's Eve (Dec 31, 2018) at the Hilton Torrey Pines in La Jolla, CA. We are from New York City and my daughter and now son-in-law moved to San Diego a couple of years ago. It was a challenge planning a 5-day destination wedding (a destination for most of us), especially since we are very traditional Jews and everything had to be kosher. Although, at first, I didn't think we needed a planner, Molly wanted someone local to help. We first hired a wedding planner who was billed as having experience with Jewish weddings. Unfortunately, she did not perform as expected and we decided we could not continue with her. Molly then met Jaime Soto of Stylish Weddings and Events. Jaime and his staff were wonderful and showed such grace and patience under what was a lot of pressure. There were multiple venues, hotels and caterers, as well as other vendors. Jaime understood the importance of our religious needs and our budgets. He brought a sense of color and style--simple and elegant. Most importantly, he brought fun. There was no obstacle he could not overcome and no matter how crazy we got, he was there to help and make things better. He worked incredibly hard. On the day of the wedding alone, on New Year's Eve, he was there for at least 18 hours straight making sure everything flowed and was beautiful. And the wedding celebration from beginning to end was wonderful. The partying went on until 2:00 am. Everyone (125 people) had a wonderful time and cannot stop talking about all of the special aspects. There can be no better wedding planner in the San Diego area than Jaime Soto. Thank you, Jaime, from the bottom of our hearts. And yes, we did need a planner. Silly me.Sent on 03/12/2019
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:Hi Gail, thank you so much for having us be a part of the wedding for Danny and Molly! It was such an honor to be there for you, family and friends to ensure that you had the best wedding possible! I am glad that I was able to fix the mess that the first wedding planner had made and that we got it all sorted and in order. I absolutely loved being part of everyone's special day and I am glad we became such good friends. Mazel Tov!!!

Stylish Weddings and Events is the way to go
My wife and I just got married this New Years Eve in San Diego and had the wonderful opportunity to work with Jaime. I say “opportunity" specifically because that is what it felt like at times to us. Initially, we hired a wedding planner (not Jaime) a year out from our NYE wedding, someone who was referred to us and checked off all the requirements for what we thought would be a great decision, or so we thought….. Turns out this planner did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in regard to planning our wedding for 9 months. To put it lightly, my wife was the wedding planner, not our actual wedding planner. We finally decided enough was enough and fired her. Shortly after this, we found Jaime. In 2 weeks, Jaime did more for us and for getting the wedding/planning back on track than our previous planner had done in 9 months! I'm not sure if that’s more amazing on Jaime’s part, or how awful our previous planner was. Either way, Jaime took charge from Day 1 with us and kept the momentum going all the way through to the very next day.Sent on 03/19/2019
Always with the utmost respect and resourcefulness, Jaime was an absolute pleasure to work with for the entire wedding process. Around 90% of our guests were coming from out of town to make this a vacation and destination wedding, so we had a handful of events going on prior to several days out from the big day. I really cannot even imagine how it all would have been completed, if it had not been for Jaime’s guidance and constant communication and helpful timelines throughout the entire process.
Our biggest regret is that we didn’t find Jaime sooner, which would have ultimately avoided months of stress and aggravation. Nonetheless, we could not be happier with Jaime and all of the dedication he put into making this wedding weekend/day one of the happiest moments of our lives!
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:Molly and Danny, thank you so much for the kind words, all I can say this was the best NYE wedding ever and what a way to celebrate! I was so honored to meet all your family and guests that all came from the East Coast. Your wedding was truly amazing, beautiful and oh so very classy. I am so glad we met and became good friends. Much happiness to you and Danny in the years to come. Don't forget we are going to have a bowling night!

Wedding Planner that stays on top of it all, hire him!
Jaime was our wedding planner for our 1920’s Christmas Themed Wedding. We had about 6 months to plan the wedding but you would never know that because of how detailed and spectacular the wedding looked the day of. He was amazing at staying in touch with all the vendors and he really made sure we got what we wanted even if that meant going out of his way to check multiple vendors. Most importantly he was a pleasure to work with! He made us feel comfortable and never pressured. Don’t think twice, hire him! He will make your dream wedding come true!Sent on 06/28/2019
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:I am very humble to have been a part of such an amazing day and meeting all your family and friends that all love you so very much. The wedding was so beautiful and working closely with you and Dexter was such a pleasure. Congratulations on expecting your baby boy here in a couple of months. Looks like I have the touch because almost 98% of my brides in the last 3 years have all become pregnant right after the Honeymoon. Lot's of Love and I can't wait to meet the new baby boy! Lot's of love!!!

Dream do come true!!
I had a vision of what I wanted for my wedding and I consider myself a do it yourself person but with my busy work schedule and traveling so much I needed someone to help me make my vision come to life. I did not want someone to take over and plan my wedding I wanted someone to take my vision and make it happen. Jaime Soto did just that! I knew when I met him he was going to make my dream wedding a reality. From the moment I hired him he was on top of contacting hotels and vendors. I’m very picky and was very clear on what I did and didn’t want he respected my opinions and respect my budget. But he also would give great suggestions. What a relief to have someone to do all the footwork. I wanted certain linens, chairs and table decor and he made it ALL happen. I hired him for all my wedding needs including rehearsal and day off and everything was perfect!! I’ve been married a year now and people are still talking about our wedding. It’s worth every penny! And the feeling of knowing that everything is being taken care of is one less thing to worry about. I had a stress free worry free wedding and reception.Sent on 06/28/2019
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:Mrs. Juanetta, all I can say is that I not only had the honor of being a part of your special day but also becoming great friends and sharing many moments in the 1 1/2 years of planning a stunning wedding. TJ and you will always be so very special and I know that I loved listening to all your ideas for the wedding and making it all happen. We left your guests amazed by how beautiful and special your wedding was....they will not be able to have a wedding better than yours, well unless I plan it for them so then it will be just as amazing as yours. Friends always, Me

Awesome Wedding Planner!!
We never really thought we would need a full-time wedding coordinator, but that was before we met Jaime. He took the time to meet with us in person or on the phone as needed and walked us through the wedding planning process every step of the way.Sent on 03/13/2019
Jaime has wonderful connections with vendors who I myself would have never been able to find. For example, he connected us with a DJ that blew all of our guests away. He made recommendations that saved us money and time without taking away from the quality of the wedding.
On the day of the wedding, my husband and I were in awe of how amazing the ballroom looked. Jaime said he was going to deliver, and he sure delivered. Not to mention, I didn't hear of any issues on the day of the wedding, meaning that Jaime did a wonderful job of making sure I was stress-free and happy on my special day.
Long story short, Jaime will help any bride and groom create the wedding of their dreams with the resources that they have. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a wedding coordinator, both full-time and day of!
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:Allie and Nino, Thank You both so much for having me plan your wedding and being there for you, family and friends for your most important day of your lives. This one was a fun and exciting wedding that was truly memorable for me and will always have fondest memories of... Please take care and it is always nice to hear from you both, Fondest memories, Jaime Soto Jr

Best wedding planner for my destination wedding!
My husband and I had the most beautiful and memorable destination wedding in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, thanks to Jaime. The fact he was able to plan, coordinate, and decorate to perfection in a foreign country was amazing. From finding delicious caterers, securing the venue/permits, entertainment (Mariachis, Musicians, Dj), photographer, and creating the most beautiful floral arrangements including my bridal bouquet.
Jaime was such a life saver! We completely let him do his magic and put our trust in him. His professional demeanor along with his talent, he was able to take my vision of our dream wedding and made it a reality. In fact, Jaime made it better than how I envision it.
Thank you Jaime for your patience and going above and beyond our expectations. You made our wedding from beginning to end a stress free joyous experience that we will cherish forever!

No parallel to the quality of service and design!
I have had the pleasure of working with Jaime in several occasions locally as well as internationally. I also work in the wedding industry which only makes me more aware of which vendors excel in their craft. In my 18 yrs. working with many coordinators I can easily say that Jaime is one of the best wedding planners in the industry locally and internationally!!! He brings professionalism, experience and incredible creativity.Sent on 03/12/2019
Jaime’s genuine attitude makes him get connected with his clients to the point that many have told me he is like a family member. His people skills are the best when it comes to coordinating all the vendors, making sure everything runs smooth and as planned. His style, creativity, taste, and knowledge help brides make their dreams become true.
His attention to detail and organization skills makes the day go flawlessly and his creativity is beyond par (he studied Architecture). You will be getting a wedding planner plus a professional designer for the price of one! I literally have seen him come with ideas out of nowhere, dress a room that transforms into a different place, create a mood through décor, come up with original ideas in faraway places (where supplies are hard to come by) and make a miracle. Believe me few designers can do this let alone a normal wedding planner!
He is just the best wedding planner!!! I believe there are no words that can give him the credit he deserves.
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:Tande, there are photographers and then there are PHOTOGRAPHERS! Thank you so much for your kind words as it always means so much to hear from another professional in the business how they feel about anyone in our industry! It is such a pleasure to always work with the best in the business and I consider you the best of the best! I know you have worked with many wedding planners in the US and also internationally and I really am honored by your feelings of my professionalism and offerings I give to my couples. Thank you from one professional to another and I can't wait to do your wedding this summer in Italy!

A Dream Maker!
Jaime was referred to me through a family friend who also hired him as their wedding planner. From the first time we met (via phone), I knew Jaime would do an excellent job. He truly made all of my dreams and visions for my wedding come true. And he did it all from the opposite side of the country! I planned my west coast wedding with Jaime all the way from the east coast. Because of this, Jaime also worked very closely with my mom and has now become a part of the family. He is a true professional with a positive and vibrant attitude. He is a great listener and an even better communicator. Even my bridal party has expressed how impressed they were! Through vision boards and many many phone calls and emails, Jaime was able to pull together the wedding of my dreams. Every vendor he referred was top notch and even the vendors we introduced to him have now built a great working relationship together. I can't say enough great things about him and would highly recommend Jaime to anyone looking for a "dream maker".Sent on 06/13/2019
Stylish Weddings & Events's reply:I am so happy that I was able to meet everyone as we are all family now and will be for the rest of our lives. Your wedding was so dear to me and what an elegant and sophisticated wedding at a truly amazing venue, La Valencia which also happens to be your last name now, it was serendipity. Your taste and expectations were impeccable and I am so glad that I was able to bring it to life. Thank you so much for making me feel part of the family and also helping create and truly magnificent wedding and will always be one of my favorites. This destination wedding, my favorites because since you were not able to be here you left a lot of trust in me for me to make sure that it was perfect and ready for when you arrived. Thank you for your trust! Always a Pleasure, Jaime
