I hired Trisha over a year before my wedding date after an extensive search of Bay Area wedding planners. Because we live in DC but wanted to hold the wedding in Northern California, we wanted to find someone who not only had extensive knowledge of the Bay Area and wine country, but was also easy to contact and willing to work with a couple living on the other side of the country. Trisha turned out to be all that and more. She has an excellent aesthetic and eye for design and found vendors that also had the kind of taste and quality that we were looking for. She was also excellent about offering suggestions, but never pushed us to go one way or another - especially since we're a couple who needed quite a bit of guidance, she was great at offering that. We got everything done for our wedding in good time, and in the few occasions when I was more stressed than usual, she was great at reassuring me that everything would work out.Sent on 05/12/2014
On the day of my wedding, she proved to be worth paying for her services and then some - she ended up filling roles as wedding planner, day-of coordinator, party planner, and even filled Mother of Bride-type responsibilities (i.e. fixing my bustle multiple times, handling guest inquiries, holding my dress while I walked). Her ability to handle so many things at once helped both me and my mother relax and just enjoy ourselves on my wedding day.
Words aren't enough to thank Trisha for the excellent work that she did throughout the almost year-and-a-half that we worked together as well as on my wedding day. If you're getting married in the Bay Area or California wine country, I highly recommend hiring her for her services.

Your training and experience as a graphic designer was evident in every aspect of your work with us! Your close attention to detail, starting with the design and production of our unique invitations, followed by the careful planning of the decorations and their coordination with the exquisite flowers, gorgeous linens and beautiful table settings was evident at every turn of the planning. The menu development, leading to the most amazing food and wine pairings, brought rave reviews from our guests. Finally, the detailed and seamless coordination you provided at both the church and the reception resulted in the flawless execution of our entire, magical, day. Trisha, you were a joy to work with, and you helped us to create the most intimate and wonderful celebration with our family and friends that we will remember always. We can't thank you enough!Sent on 04/06/2010

As our Wedding Day Coordinator, Trisha Dean was so much more than a ‘Day Of.’ For the 11 months prior to my daughter's wedding, Trisha was easily accessible via e-mail or phone. She replied promptly with her suggestions and gentle supervision. We met numerous times in person, and each meeting left this anxious MOB calm and comforted. Her creativity, flexibility and dedication to quality was a welcome guiding light. When the wedding day arrived, I knew I had nothing to doubt or be concerned about. As expected, every detail ran smoothly and beautifully! Trisha’s knowledge and rapport with the vendors was efficient and streamlined. The vendors shared their compliments with me. Trisha is a perfectionist and very professional, but what I love even more than this is how personable she is. Her kindness, laughter and friendship made me feel like I have known her for years.Sent on 03/29/2010

It's been two years since our amazing wedding, and we could not have had such an wonderful, very special day without Trisha! She is a joy to work with. Throughout the planning process she was a source of support, guidance, and creativity. Her attention to detail and very professional and friendly demeanor make her a perfect wedding coordinator. Because of her our wedding day was absolutely flawless and beautiful! Thank you Trisha for helping create such wonderful memories for us and our family!Sent on 08/29/2011

Trisha Dean saved my life!!!Sent on 04/07/2010
I thought that planning my own wedding would be easy, but trying to juggle work and planning a wedding proved to be more than I could handle. About six months into trying to do things on my own, I decided to hire an event planner. I interviewed about a dozen people/companies, (yes, I am a very picky person!) and just couldn't find anyone that I meshed well with or trusted to create my fairy tale. I was referred to Trisha by a vendor who had worked with her before, and knew from our first conversation she was the one I had to have!! She immediately put my mind at ease and jumped right in and got going. Trisha is extremely detailed oriented, is an active listener, works well under pressure, and far exceeded my expectations. Thanks to Trisha, I was able to truly enjoy the best day of my life. Thanks - I would reccommend you to anyone in a heartbeat!!
