  • 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

  • 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

  • Unlike many bride's I know, I did not have my dream wedding planned and envisioned since I was a little girl. In fact, I thought I would I always thought I would elope. Imagine my surprise (and nerves!) when my groom said he wanted a big destination wedding! Because of this, my first days trying to plan a wedding myself were very overwhelming. On top of that, my husband and I are both extremely busy professionals. Then, my Mom found A Dream Wedding! From the first phone call, Echo had a special way of helping me bring to life a dream that I didn’t even know that I had buried inside- to have a Wine Country Wedding. Her creativity is inspiring; she captured my vision so quickly and intuitively. Her passion is infectious; she turned any ounce of stress I had into total excitement. Her reputation is flawless; every vendor that we met, interviewed or used breathed a sigh of relief when we told them that Echo was our planner. I highly recommend A Dream Wedding to any Bride- whether you hav... Read more

  • Echo is the absolute perfect wedding planner! I would hands down recommend her to any bride :) I started working with Echo shortly after I got engaged and was completely new to wedding planning. Between my fiancé and I, we had a ton of really basic questions and were slightly overwhelmed by all that needed to be done. Throughout the entire planning process, Echo was highly organized, knowledgeable, patient, and professional. She is an absolute veteran in the business and will navigate any situation flawlessly. One of my favorite memories working with Echo was her process for helping us chose vendors. She planned a beautiful weekend in wine country for us to meet with vendors that she hand-picked for us based on our needs. Throughout the course of two days, Echo had booked us meetings with two of each vendor (e.g. two photographers, two caterers, etc.), so that we could choose our favorites. Did I mention these were all at adorable coffee shops/restaurants? While the planni... Read more

  • First, to say the wedding was a dream merely scratches the surface of the surreal experience Echo was able to procure. Everything from the ease of communication, to the pinpoint organization, reasonable pricing, and overall giddy professional demeanor , this equates to THE PERFECT wedding. At first we were skeptical of hiring a planner (ambitious we know) but with hindsight being the crux of wisdom, take our advice, go with Echo. The thorough thoutfullness she brings is sure to enhance not overshadow your unique tastes as she has proven a powerful resource for expert design. We really appreciate how seamless our wedding day was, thanks to her our stress level was zero! And everyone took note. We thank you Echo for everything you have done and to all reading this we highly recommend A Dream Wedding to surpass all your expectations.
