  • We hired Anita after researching other wedding planners in the area. She was the most affordable that we could find in the Monterey area and we enjoyed talking to her. We used her for day of coordination and paid by the hour. There were a few communication issues, but maybe that was my fault for not communicating enough with her (example: the glow sticks were set out too early, pin on corsages instead of wrist ones, and contacting vendors without letting me know). Overall, our wedding went well with very little things that went wrong. She did an awesome job with the flowers. People still tell me how lovely the centerpieces were. Her sister made the cake too and it was yummy and below our budget.

  • I was never the girl that fantasized about her perfect wedding so when that moment arrived, I thought, “Hey, this will be easy, I can plan this!” Until this day, my one HUGE REGRET was not having Anita coordinate my wedding. However, I did have the pleasure of having Anita as my wedding florist. I had no concept of flowers but shared my vision of table center pieces with ceramic tea pots and cups filled with wild flowers, whimsical flowy vines wrapped around gazebo arches, bridesmaids holding baby breath wrapped in lace and burlap, and a bridal bouquet with vines streaming through. My, Oh, My! Anita was truly a floral alchemist because she took my vision and created the most enchanted, elegant, romantic, gorgeous bohemian inspired bouquets/arrangements that made my heart flutter; she went above and beyond and exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much Anita!! Prior to the big day, Anita found out I was without a wedding coordinator, she offered her assistance and I politely... Read more

  • Anita Starr of Astarr Events completely understood what we envisioned from the very beginning. We discussed our ideas with Anita and let her run with it! Anita crafted the most beautiful floral arrangements and décor for our wedding. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything felt like us. It was almost as if she was inside my mind, she really understood what I meant by fun and elegant. Coral and chartreuse hues with gold accents flickered softly through the warm candlelight ambiance.

  • Anita was extremely helpful during the entire process. I was frustrated with trying to plan and organize the wedding on my own so I looked for some help and Anita stepped up to the plate. She was impressively organized from spreadsheets to floor plan layouts. She gave ideas and advice and most importantly listened to all my needs, wants and desires. I would recommend Anita to everyone. Thank you for everything you did for us. Our day was magical and a day to never forget.

  • I was extremely happy to have Anita as our daughter's wedding planner. Anita was extremely resourceful, creative and her attention to detail and follow-up were exceptional in every way. She constructed a large and portable wooden frame for a wedding arch that we had covered in flowers; it beautifully complimented the venue overlooking the Monterey Bay; everyone commented on how elegant our wedding was down to the last detail. Anita was professional and approachable; I knew I could rely on her for any little request. I am pleased to give Anita my highest recommendation as a wedding planning professional.

  • Anita is such a wonderful, attentive, knowledgeable, and dedicated event planner. She did my wedding, one of the most important days of my life. It was one of the best days of my life and she helped make it possible. She was always available and patient with any questions or concerns I had. She also did my boquet and I received so many compliments on it - it was gorgeous and just what I had envisioned. She clearly has a talent with what she does for a living. To this day, 5 months later, I am still told that my wedding was the best (or one of the top) weddings our guests have ever been to. Again, I thank Anita for that because it went so smooth and she was on the ball. Her husband is helpful and great to work with as well. I absolutely recommend her for planning a wedding.
