  • I am five days out from my daughter’s wedding and though still a little tired, I am basking in what was truly a dream come true event! Saskia was our coordinator and I get emotional thinking about how literally every guest I spoke to raved about the attention to detail that was evident. Though I am an organized, detail-oriented person I had NO IDEA what a Herculean effort it would be to execute a 285-person dream wedding without her and her team’s help. It is invaluable to have someone who understands what is necessary and has worked in the wedding industry to help you navigate the many elements necessary to stay sane and within your budget! We had 14 months to plan a wedding 2 1/2 hours away and at every turn she was there...asking questions I wouldn’t know to ask, offering other cost-effective alternatives if I was nervous about a quote, walking the property with us so she could visualize the day and be the intermediary so we could relax and enjoy the day with virtually no w...

  • Saskia was the absolute perfect wedding coordinator for me. From our very first conversation, I felt like our personalities matched. She completely understood my vision for the wedding. Even though I booked her for month-of coordination, she didn't mind if I emailed her small questions from time to time many months before the wedding. By the time the venue walkthrough came, I was completely sick of making decisions and trusted Saskia completely. I took her advice on how to set up certain areas, how to decorate (with decor I had already chosen), and basically everything else. On the weekend of the wedding, everything was perfect. Saskia was so organized and professional, but was always warm and easy going. She had the perfect blend of totally on top of it and chill at the same time. I am probably forgetting a million little things she did to make my day special. All I can say is thanks a million and if you think Saskia might be a good fit for you, absolutely check her out.

  • I hired Carolyn Edgecomb for my Day of Coordinator for my Wedding Day and I'm so happy I did. I was able to enjoy and soak in my Big Day. Carolyn was flexible with me in the months leading up to the wedding. Her willingness to have calls with me during the week on things I was worried about and going over the Google Sheets to keep us organized really helped. But what I valued the most is how her and Kyle really took charge the day of to make sure we were on schedule and did everything we wanted to do for our Big Day. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I had a wonderful Special Day thanks to you Carolyn.

  • We had the most amazing experience with Carolyn at MOOI! Trying to save on costs, we hadn't at first planned on hiring a month-of-coordinator. I can't express how glad I am that we decided to work with Carolyn and Nikki. From the first phone conversation to organizing and packing out everything at the end of our weekend wedding, Carolyn was efficient, calm, kind, and quick to understand our vision and needs. She walked into setting up the venue with next to no instruction and made the reception hall more beautiful than I could have imagined. Throughout it all, she kept us chill, well-fed, and - most important- made sure that we were really present at our celebration and not worrying about any of the logistics. I'm sure she put out tons of fires that we had no idea were going on. Thank you, Carolyn! We are so grateful for your help.

  • We hired Mooi and signed on to work with Saskia as our day-of coordinator for our wedding in Napa, but we wanted anything but a traditional Napa wedding. In fact, we chose a place that had never hosted a wedding before, which had a space that was pretty raw but bursting with potential. Saskia encouraged us to see that our vision was possible, even though it would take some airtight planning. She was available by email, phone, text, video call, and, we’re sure, smoke signal, if things had come to that. She helped us to understand what parts of a wedding ceremony and reception were often expected and took no offense when we wanted to deviate. She also asked questions to prompt us to consider what our parents and relatives might want, expect, and need to feel special during the wedding. The day before and the day of the wedding, she drove up to Napa, respected our tardiness, and helped to get us on track. Even more, on the day of the wedding, we barely heard from Saskia because she was ... Read more

  • There's so much you have to deal with when planning your wedding. A lot of the vendors do a great job in providing a quote and selling their product, but I have a full time job and a life outside of planning a wedding, and although I'm very organized and a natural planner, there were so many small details that I just never thought about or knew how to even tackle. Hiring Carolyn at Mooi Weddings as our event coordinator was the best thing we did. My only regret is that we didn't book the full services and had her work with us from the very beginning. Months leading up to the wedding, Carolyn was flexible with her time and very helpful. I also respected that she wasn't a simple "yes" woman. She is the expert and knew more than us what were our realistic limitations. Trust me this is important. She helped us make our dream wedding happen while keeping in mind our budget and amount of time we had on our wedding day. My family and guests absolutely loved her as well and they aren't...

  • We absolutely loved working with Carolyn at Mooi! Our wedding was a weekend camping celebration, and Carolyn was totally down to camp and take care of everything for the entire weekend. As someone who is a planner and worries about everything when throwing a party, I was able to relax and let Carolyn take the reins. I also just enjoyed working with her because she is fun, relaxed, and goes with the flow while also being super organized and on top of her game. I would highly recommend working with her and her team!

  • Hiring Carolyn to be our month-of coordinator was by far the best decision we made while planning our wedding. Within days after hiring her, she had already paid for herself through recommending high quality, affordable vendors that saved us more money than her fee. And this was NOT because we hadn’t been looking- Fiona does research for a living and we thought we had found everything that was out there! Carolyn made sure we were on track, and was an invaluable advocate for us while we were communicating with and signing contracts with vendors. She was the reality check we needed when our lofty DIY decor ambitions got out of hand, but also gave us tips and tricks to make sure we completed the personal projects that were most important to us. Every time we finished a phone conversation with her, we felt like we had a clear direction and were on the right track. She made a very stressful planning process way more relaxing- especially in the hectic days leading up to the wedding. He... Read more

  • Carolyn was such a blessing! She is kind, creative, encouraging, super organized, patient, and responsive. She made us feel like her only client and provided support throughout the entire process from the planning stages to packing everything up. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and she made it special, memorable, and stress-free! Since I did most of the wedding planning, the hubby did all the reviewing! Read his comments below: My wife and I came to Carolyn after abruptly leaving a relationship with a mediocre (at best), slightly unreliable wedding planner. We were also planning the wedding from across the country, already over budget, strapped for time, super ambitious, unfamiliar with wedding planning, and super specific with what we hoped for. In order to ensure our new planner was able to handle the challenge, we laid this all out for Carolyn during the first phone consult. She didn’t even blink as we explained all of this; she confidently and reassuringly told u... Read more

  • I can honestly and without reservation recommend Mooi Weddings. They are marvelous designers, know all the ins and outs, and will make sure not a thing is missed, from engagement photo sessions to chef tastings to cake to rentals to staffing to decor and event coordination and right down to how much you should tip your vendors. I had my dream wedding on New Year’s Eve, in every respect. Mooi made it all happen. They took a huge weight off my shoulders. I couldn’t have asked for a better team. I would say I’m as perfectionistic and detail oriented as they come. I know how to put together and run teams to make things that work and are beautiful. Mooi’s planners have the same skill in putting together the team that will make any event fantastic. If I might provide a little advice. As a couple, agreeing on and knowing your vision is key. The overall idea should remain in the forefront, and using that as a guide in all decisions will help you get through what will appear to b... Read more

  • Saskia and Carolyn of mooi were a dream team. From the moment we met Saskia we knew she would be perfect for us; confident, patient, creative and very realistic. Mooi weddings brought our dream wedding to life. Mooi took care of everything From helping us identify and articulate our vision, to planning every detail of the design, to making our aisle runner, and executing a ceremony, horah, dinner and dancing for over 220 people. Saskia and Carolyn executed everything with ease and precision while keeping the mood light and fun. We’d hire them again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to anyone who is looking for fun, loving, creative, detail-oriented, budget savvy professional planners!

  • Carolyn was our right-hand-woman for all things leading up to our August 2017 wedding in San Francisco. She was professional, responsive and fun to work with. Thank you for all your ideas and guidance, Carolyn! You made our big day easier than we ever could've hoped for.

  • Carolyn at Mooi was perfect and I could not have pulled off my backyard wedding without her. There were days where I could not focus and just wanted to hide under the bed with a bottle of wine and she’d zip around my house measuring everything and counting chairs and ordering everything we needed. She was very respectful of our budget and was “the bad cop” with the vendors. The day of the wedding went off perfectly and if there were any problems, I didn’t hear a whisper! This was the very best money I spent and I cannot recommend Mooi strongly enough.

  • I cannot begin to say enough positive things about our experience with Saskia and her whole team at MOOI. My husband and I hired Saskia after our first meeting because there was an immediate connection and she clearly understood our vision. Our wedding was in the woods at a giant campground, and our plan was to set up various parts of the campground with the different parts of the wedding. From the first moment we told her, she was on our side with a huge smile on her face and bursting with ideas. She had a background doing festivals in parks, so she completely understood the extra work that would go into creating a venue in this type of location, and she was full of questions and advice for things we hadn't remotely thought of yet. Hiring MOOI meant getting a whole Google Drive folder filled with planning resources that made the process streamlined and organized so we never worried we were forgetting anything. We always got our emails and texts responded to, and we were never m... Read more
