  • After our first initial call with Echo, we knew that she was the one! We immediately called her back and told her we would be delighted to work with her. It was easily the best decision that my Fiancè would make in our wedding planning process. We hired Echo to plan our wedding at Calistoga Ranch for May, 2021. In every one of our conversations, she had every single detail down pat and knew exactly what we wanted and when it needed to be done, down to the minute. That put our minds to ease knowing that we had a partner in this process who was so organized and on top of it. Not to mention, all of the vendors we met with had raving reviews of Echo and her work, which we couldn't agree with more. Echo worked with us and we had the majority of our May 2021 wedding already planned, designs set and vendors confirmed due to Echo's incredible work ethic and dedication to details. We had a very unique situation as we had planned to get married at Calistoga Ranch in May. Unfortunately, due to t... Read more

  • There are not enough wonderful things to say about Echo. Even though my fiance and I made the gut-wrenching decision to cancel our dream CA wedding due to COVID, Echo was right by our side the whole time. She made a difficult decision much easier by helping us to communicate the hard message to our vendors and collect our deposits. We so wish we could've seen Echo in action on our wedding day: Visiting with her last January and seeing how organized and energized she was by our visions made our dreams come to life (we just wish things had gone differently and we could've seen it all on the big day). Echo is a consummate professional with a down-to-earth personality, so she will make you feel you feel relaxed while you can also rest assured knowing everything is being handled beyond your every expectation. - K&E

  • We hired Echo from A Dream Wedding to help us plan our wedding at Solage, in Calistoga September 2019. It was the best money we spent! My husband and I were overwhelmed with the entire process of planning a wedding. We didn't know where to start, so we immediately starting looking for a planner. Once we had our first call with Echo, she put our minds at ease and we knew she was the perfect fit. You can tell she loves what she does and she's exceptionally good at it. She helped us through the entire process and gave us helpful tips along the way. She's the most organized person I know. She sent us updated timelines(to the minute) she dealt with all of our vendors, negotiated prices, reminded of special touches, and helped our special day run smoothly from start to finish. She went above and beyond to make sure we weren't stressed at any point the day of, from taking our dog back to our room after the ceremony, getting me sandals since my feet were hurting so bad, and even setting our ro...

  • We cannot recommend Echo highly enough. I'm not even sure if we would have had our wedding if it weren't for Echo. Our wedding in Napa happened to fall on the weekend of the fires in Oct 2019. Despite the hectic situation, our wedding went off without any problems. Echo kept us updated throughout the entire process and we didn't even notice at one point when our venue's electricity was cut due to the fire because Echo and the on site manager had already coordinated a back up plan using a back up generator. Leading up to the wedding, her simple timelines and schedule keeps everything stress free. Echo is the perfect planner to for letting you and your guests enjoy your wedding date. - M&W

  • 2020 was a tough year, especially for hosting a wedding! Echo was absolutely fantastic in helping us design and plan our dream wedding starting in 2018. When the pandemic hit, we didn't know what to do and Echo was the first to reach out to us about our options for re-scheduling, guiding us through the tricky re-contracting process and assuring us along the way that we would still have our special day. Unfortunately, during the fall of 2020, we learned that our wedding venue burned down in the disastrous Glass Fire, leaving us without our beautiful venue and many open questions. Echo, once again, was the first to reach out to us and the first to support us in our decision to exercise force majeure and terminate our wedding. While it was an extremely difficult decision on our end, Echo supported us 110%, despite the fact that we ultimately did not need her services any longer for our wedding. She initiated our refund processes, navigated difficult conversations with vendors and ulti... Read more

  • Planning a wedding can be challenging and doing so when the venue is on the other side of the country makes it more so. We knew that we needed help and couldn’t have made a better choice. Echo was incredible. She handled everything – all the things we knew that we needed and all the details that we didn’t! Constant communication was key, helping us choose vendors (they’re all amazing!) to make our day perfect - carefully (and patiently) walking us through every step of the process and was an absolute budgeting ninja. When we were busy with work, she was understanding; when we were indecisive, she helped brainstorm; when we didn’t want to do something, she convinced us otherwise! We couldn’t have done it without her. Our guests had the very best time – all those extra little touches didn’t go unnoticed. We’re in no doubt we raised the bar and couldn’t have done it without her. We cannot recommend Echo highly enough.

  • That's kind of a scary title to give a review about a wedding, right? The MIL is often looked at with shady eyes in this scenario. So, my daughter in law has hired a wedding planner and then I follow suit and hire the same one, Echo, to help me plan and coordinate the wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Oh the pressure here....ok, ok...I have to stop trying to sound tough because I happen to have the world's GREATEST DIL!!! And she found for us the most perfect wedding planner ever! Like have you ever had a meal so good that you want to tell every single person you know that they HAVE to got to that same restaurant and order the exact same meal just so they can experience the same joy you had while enjoying your dinner? Think that times a million!! I have never been so impressed by someone's attention to detail, ability to understand exactly what look, feel, and ambience I wanted for an event and then MAKE IT HAPPEN all while being on the other side of the country.

  • Echo is truly amazing at what she does! Our wedding this past fall at Calistoga Ranch went by absolutely seamlessly. It was the most perfect day, and I think much of that was due to Echo. During the months leading up to the wedding, we stuck (or tried to stick) to Echo's timelines, and so in the few weeks just before our wedding, there was nothing left to worry about! We had no stress on our wedding day; Echo took care of everything. Even though we planned our Napa wedding from New York, working with Echo made the entire process very manageable. We told her what our vision was, and she chose a handful of vendors for each category for us to pick that she believed would be able to execute our plans (and we loved all the vendors we met with). We could not have been happier with our our day went. Thank you, Echo!

  • Where do I even begin? If you don't plan on reading this entire review, all you need to know is that Echo is absolutely amazing and our wedding day would not have been the same without her. You will not regret booking her! When I started wedding planning, I knew I needed a planner. Originally from the midwest and only living in the bay area for a couple years before getting engaged, I knew I needed expert help to plan my dream wedding in wine country on a budget. After talking to multiple planners, I was completely overwhelmed. I felt like giving up, but then I got on a call with Echo and everything just clicked. She was the first person to talk to me seriously about budget and about how the process would work. I appreciated her straight forward approach because it's exactly what I was looking for in a planner. I am very type A and have a very hard time letting go and giving over control - clearly, not an easy client. The moment I spoke with Echo though, I knew she had to plan my we... Read more

  • My husband and I worked with Echo over the past year to plan our wine country wedding and could not have been happier. She was an absolute dream and helped us make our picture perfect wedding come to life. Echo consulted us from everything from finding the ideal venue to choosing the best vendors, to making sure that the day of ran 100% according to plan. We had quite a few obstacles pop up the last week of our wedding, but Echo handled all of them with ease and professionalism, and made sure our wedding day was perfect. Anyone who works with Echo is in very good hands and will have everything they dream of in their wedding!

  • Echo was everything we hoped for in a wedding planner and so much more. My husband and I live in Ohio, so planning our dream wedding in Napa, CA was overwhelming—to say the least. We had interviewed a few wedding planners prior to speaking with Echo, but within minutes of our first call we knew she was the perfect choice. Echo is warm, caring and has impeccable attention to detail. Throughout the planning process, Echo had great communication with us to ensure our minds were at ease and we were stress-free. She kept us on task, and provided great advice to help us create a beautiful wedding within our budget. Her deep connections and trust with each of the vendors made sure that we were not only given superb service, but at a reasonable price. We recommend Echo to anyone getting married in the area - she is simply the best! Thank you Echo, for giving us our Dream Wedding!

  • We hired Echo and A Dream Wedding for our wedding at Calistoga Ranch. Being on the east coast we realized that we would have to do everything from afar. We hired Echo before meeting her in person and we know that we made the best decision for our wedding planning and day of needs. Echo thought of everything - from helping us with the perfect glassware and table setting to managing an incredibly complicated timeline for our wedding day as well as day of logistics for multiple buses, pick up locations for our guests, and more. She did everything with confidence and ease - and made us feel comfortable about everything and we did not have to worry about anything going wrong the day of our wedding. She is truly great at what she does and brings a great spirit and positivity to her work. We were tough clients at times with lots of little questions and requests- and she took great care of us. Thank you A Dream Wedding for making our wedding day absolutely perfect.

  • I highly recommend A Dream Wedding for wedding planning in Napa or Sonoma Valley. Echo planned my daughter’s wedding last summer at Calistoga Ranch, There are so many details to navigate for any wedding, and I learned that in the wine country there are a few more due to zoning restrictions, details in how some venues and businesses operate and limited choices of vendors in some categories. My daughter and now son-in-law were working intensely out-of-state and had limited time. And while I am in the Bay Area, that’s still quite different from really knowing the wine country. Echo did a great job navigating us through everything - from knowing which decisions had to be made quickly to knowing the trade-offs with specific vendors and having intimate venue knowledge. It also became clear that the vendors/venues know Echo and as a result she’s able to get more leeway on some of the restrictions that might otherwise be enforced. I was told multiple times by the representatives o... Read more

  • Echo was indispensable in helping us plan our June 2019 wedding at Carmel Valley Ranch. From the beginning of the process she was very accessible and organized, which was vital since we were planning this from out of town. We interviewed many wedding planners, and Echo was unique in multiple ways. 1) She is a one woman shop so we knew we would be getting her full attention rather than having our wedding tasked out to more junior planners at a given firm. She also limits the amount of full weddings she takes on in a season so she can ensure full attention. 2) She gave us all referral fees that she would have otherwise received from vendors she had previous relationships with. 3) She was the only wedding planner we talked to in the original screening call who was conscious of us not having an unlimited budget, and offered her recommendations for certain places to over and under spend. Overall, working with Echo was a great experience and I cannot imagine planning a wedding wit... Read more

  • Ok, so I will start out by saying my fiancé, now husband and I both thought a wedding planner was a ridiculous expense to add on top of a wedding. As we started getting into the planning there was just so much we really didn't know. I mean it's not like one gets married often enough to know the ins and outs. Echo was an angel. I highly recommend her. She paid attention to every. Single. Detail. From the little to the big pieces. She heard our vision and made it reality. Echo also saved us $6,000 on a contract that I'm not quite sure we would have been able to negotiate on our own. Our wedding was spectacular because of a dream wedding. We always spoke directly with Echo. She always got back to us in a timely manner and she really is quite amazing at what she does. Everything ran on time and was quite seamless. We felt like guests at our wedding. Which I am confident would not have been the case if we tried to go at it on our own. I could not recommend Echo "a dream wedding" ... Read more
