  • Stephanie and her team did a GREAT JOB on the day of our daughters wedding. One of our vendors came unprepared to perform their job in a professional manor and we are so happy Stephanie was there. It could have been really bad if she wasn't there to get things done. Stephanie and her team worked hard to make things run smoothly under very trying circumstances. You can tell she truly cares about your event and works very hard to assures it goes well. Thank you Stephanie!

  • I am so glad we hired Stephanie and her team for our wedding!! After doing most of the planning ourselves, we knew we needed someone to run the show during our wedding. After bringing Stephanie onboard, my anxiety lessened and I was able to enjoy myself. Stephanie and her team were friendly and professional. Her planning tools helped keep us on track and her day of coordination allowed us to focus on each other and our guests instead of all the details. I would definitely recommend Stephanie and her team for anyone panning a wedding and/or needing day of wedding coordination.

  • We found Stephanie on our venue's recommended vendors list, and we're so happy we did. While Stephanie was our month-of coordinator, she had calls with us every month to stay on top of the planning process and understand exactly what our vision was. As our wedding approached, she helped us finalize our timeline and was our liaison with our other vendors. When it came to the day of the wedding, Stephanie took care of so many little details. From set-up to send-off Stephanie was a lifesafer and allowed us to enjoy the party without having to worry about the details.

    Thanks Nicole!! It was such a pleasure to help you plan your Best Day Ever! I'll miss our monthly/weekly chats. I keep you in my daily prayers, thank you for dedicating your life to healing children and their families. =)) Congratulations again!

  • Hiring Stephanie as our Day Of Coordinator for our wedding in Julian this month was hands down the best decision we made in the wedding planning process. We could not have done it without her! Even though we hired her only for day-of, she was helpful throughout the entire process. She recommended vendors who were great, and was always quick to answer any questions we had. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she helped us get all of the little details figured out and organized. Wedding planning can be so overwhelming, especially at a venue where so much is DIY and Stephanie made sure nothing was forgotten. When we got to our wedding day, she made sure everything went smoothly and created a dream wedding for me and my husband. She made it so we didn't have to stress about a single thing on our wedding day, which is how it should be! When I walked in to our reception area I was blown away by how beautiful everything was set up, with minimal direction from me. I couldn't have dreamed i... Read more

  • We would give Stephanie and her team 10 stars if we could. We are so thankful for Stephanie as she helped us plan our wedding in San Diego while we were across the country in NYC, all in 5 months. We first met with her during our menu/cake tasting where we were immediately impressed by how prepared she was, her thoughtful and pointed questions, and that she quickly came to understand what was important to us for our wedding. During our wedding weekend, she and her team took care of everything, including assembling centerpieces, referring an fabulous hair and makeup team, recommending a talented florist, keeping our entire wedding party in line, coordinating with vendors, set up, and clean up- across two days of events. We were particularly struck by Stephanie's professionalism, efficiency with time and money, creativity, and thoughtfulness. She also made us feel so special by surprising us with light up balloons and glow sticks at the end of our reception during New Year’s Eve... Read more

  • As a photographer, it's always hard to tell if you'll be able to sync up with a wedding planner, but Stephanie was fantastic to work with. She was on top of everything and kept us on schedule, making the day run smoother for the couple.

  • First and foremost, there are no words to explain how happy and thankful my now husband and I are with Best Day Ever Events. Huge thanks to one of my bridesmaids for referring us to Stephanie. Our wedding was nothing short of perfection. I foolishly tried to plan the wedding on my own (while losing my mind) and thanks to Stephanie I could relax, knowing everything was going to be taken care of and done right. Not only does Stephanie have great taste and ideas, she is also very knowledgeable and connected to vendors. She completely took over all negotiations and scheduling to the point that all we had to do was sign on the dotted line. On the day of our wedding because of Stephanie all I had to worry about was looking my best. She was also amazing when it came to keeping my family and the wedding party on time (which is no easy task). Stephanie also went above and beyond with stepping up and helping in every aspect to save us money where we could as well as keeping us on if not under bu... Read more

  • Stephanie did an amazing job coordinating our wedding- she kept us on track with both the big tasks and the little ones, made great suggestions for vendors and the floorplan/event schedule, kept in touch with all the vendors, and helped so much with the ridiculous amount of DIY decor that I was doing (flowers, signs, centerpieces, lights, draping, lanterns)- I wouldn't have been able to pull it off without her, especially the setup and the cleanup. I gave her vague ideas of what might go where, and she made it look AMAZING! And during the wedding and reception, from my view of things, everything went perfectly, which is what you want- I didn't have to worry about anything. I can't recommend her enough. Thanks Stephanie!! :)

    Thanks Sydney!! I am a firm believer in teamwork, and Platinum Event Rentals always takes the stress out of equipment rentals. Your team is top notch, from sales to service, and your setup/strike team are wonderful! Can't wait for the next one (which I need to email you about soon!!). =))

  • I would like to preface this review by saying I am no means trying to bash Stephanie as a person, but as a Wedding Coordinator she did not live up to our expectations, especially on the day of the wedding. I gave some time after my wedding to think things over and realized how much it bothered me that certain events had occurred during the planning process and on the day of, which I feel could have been easily prevented. I reached out to a few different wedding coordinators that were on my venue’s vendor recommended list. I picked Stephanie because she had so much experience working at the venue we had chosen, she seemed like someone who was well organized and on top of things. I made it clear from the beginning that I am a detailed person and she was well aware of everything scheduled for my wedding. I didn’t throw in any curveballs at her randomly. I always tried to make her life easier by staying on top of things on our end. My husband and I used her website constantly to... Read more

    Hi Ashley & Andrew! Firstly, thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful and honest review. It really means a lot to me, as it will definitely help me improve my processes and working with my clients. You, your family, and guests, are important to me, and I am very disappointed that I was not able to convey that effectively. I hope you can accept my sincerest apologies. If you're agreeable, I'd love to setup a time to discuss your specific points over the phone -- I will send you a personal email to schedule. Again, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day and I wish you both only the best! -- Stephanie

  • Our wedding day was perfect and Stephanie was a huge part of why the day was so successful. In choosing a day-of coordinator, we contacted a handful of people, and Stephanie immediately made a great impression. During our initial Skype chat, she asked important questions about our vision for our wedding. Considering how personable and detail-oriented she was, we knew we had to choose her. Prior to our wedding, she met us at our venue (Sacred Mountain Julian) for a site visit, and was very knowledgeable and professional. Throughout the entire process, she listened to what we were envisioning, offered great alternatives in a respectful and creative way, and let us use props from her own inventory. On our wedding day, Stephanie and her team executed our vision perfectly, prepping everything from table settings to lawn games to the garland on the arch. We didn't have to worry about a thing! She made sure everything ran smoothly, coordinated with our vendors, and even cut our cake. A... Read more
