Oh, hello!

- Abbie & Colin

From the moment we met Candice, we knew she was our girl. She is organized, professional, smart, and above all, kind and compassionate. Every step of the way, she provided guidance, insight and solutions, while also being light, enjoyable and fun. She took care of details I didn’t even know existed and we laughed a lot along the way. We are grateful our wedding coordinator search led us to Candice. She was an absolute dream to work with, our vendors loved her, and she made it possible for us to have the most spectacular day of our lives.

Candice and her team made our wedding day go off without a hitch. I knew when I chatted with Candice for the first time she had to be our coordinator. She is incredibly organized. First of all, by providing software for us to use for all of our planning, I never had any questions as to what I needed to do during wedding planning which was a game changer in itself. She went above and beyond for our wedding, providing us with so much more support and input than just the month. 

We are so grateful for Candice and couldn't recommend her enough!”

Candice went above and beyond, ensuring everything ran smoothly, even addressing unexpected challenges like a heat wave on the day of the Sangeet. Her down-to-earth personality and easygoing nature made her not just a planner but a friend throughout our year of wedding planning. We highly recommend Candice to any couple in search of a wedding planner.

Candice was a joy to work with—easy to reach and by our side throughout the entire process, from our first conversation to vendor selection and ensuring a flawless setup on the big day! Being from out of state, we had no knowledge of local vendors, but Candice expertly provided multiple options and ensured each vendor was on top of everything. We highly recommend her for anyone planning a California wedding, particularly those from out of state or unfamiliar with the area.

We could not have asked for a better experience!”
