  • My wedding is still a ways off, so we haven't gotten into the detailed planning for my wedding yet. However, when I inquired about hiring Denise as our wedding planner, she was very prompt in responding. She has done over 50 weddings at my venue (St. Francis Winery) and knows everyone there. Most of all, I felt an instant connection with her when we talked on the phone. She is personable, honest, and has years of experience in the wedding industry. I am very confident she will do a fabulous job in helping me with my wedding!

  • Denise is a visionary! We found her through our venue's events coordinator, who recommended Denise to us when we were in the search for a wedding coordinator. From the start, you can tell she's been in the business for a long time, she is very knowledgeable. All the wedding vendors Denise recommended to us were all wonderful! Wedding planning can be time consuming and stressful, but she helped guide us so that our big day can be enjoyable and stress-free. She was organized, professional, responsive, thoughtful, and such a joy to work with! Denise is very detail oriented and knows the big picture. Sometimes as brides we tend to sweat the small stuff. She knows what works and shared the things that are not worth stressing about - I appreciate that so much about her. Denise did her best to save us money and made sure we stayed within our wedding budget. I would highly recommend her to future couples getting married. She is worth every penny and more! Thank you so much, Denise,... Read more

  • We found Denise while searching wedding sites. We were looking for someone to help us plan our elopement in California (from Atlanta.) She was very responsive right from the start, so we decided to meet with her 5 months before our wedding to find the right site. After a few questions, she took us to 3 equally lovely, but different sites. We settled on BR Cohn's Oak Tree Grove. Right from the beginning Denise set us up with hair/makeup (The Powder Room). Musical Heart Strings, the officiant, the florist, and transportation (Sac Town Vintage). She made the introductions between us and the vendors, and oversaw the emails. Denise knows what is going on and what works. When I emailed her a few days before the ceremony asking for a rose petal path, she was "on it." When she found out that BR Cohn had booked a wedding the same day as ours, she navigated it so we never saw or heard the other wedding. She arranged the delicious cake and BRCohn wine for us to have at our ceremony. Den... Read more

  • If you are looking for someone who is incredibly attentive to your needs and makes you feel completely at ease... look no further, Denise is your person. From our first interaction, I knew based on Denise's warm and thorough response to my inquiry that she would be a perfect fit. Our wedding was non-traditional in that it was a "Progressive" day as Denise termed it. We went to 4 different locations throughout the day, which can present many challenges of herding guests to each venue, ensuring timeliness and also transporting decorative items for each varying space. Denise and her associate helped to make our day perfect. She kept our guests, and most importantly my husband on time. The day ran flawlessly. I cannot thank Denise enough for helping to provide me with suggestions of vendors (Musical Heart Strings for ceremony music, Katie Donaghy with Whimsy! Hair & Makeup design, Tori Patocchi Floral Design, Pure Luxury for Transportation and AMS for DJ). Denise helped to take... Read more

  • Denise's organization, experience, and positive attitude allowed us to focus on the important things at our wedding: each other. She expertly facilitated planning our wedding while we were on the other side of the country, and we could trust all of her decisions completely. Thanks Denise!

  • Denise planned our September 2018 wedding, and it was absolutely perfect! She was such a pleasure to work with, and things ran smoothly from Day 1 with her planning our special day. Finding a planner that we could trust and rely on was an extremely important priority for us, since it was a destination wedding, and we couldn’t have been happier with the planning and support provided by Denise. She truly understood the vision we had for the day, and her attention to detail ensured that it went off without a hitch! We couldn’t have imagined all of the details that went into the planning process, but she provided invaluable guidance along the way so that we had no problem making decisions on matters from across the country. I can’t recommend Denise enough – we are so grateful to her for putting together the PERFECT day for us!

  • Hiring Denise Kramer as your wedding planner is the best wedding gift you can give yourself! We were just married on 10/6/18 in Sonoma. Denise planned our entire event schedule, and seamlessly coordinated everything with us from our home in Phoenix. She earned our complete trust! Our wedding was magical and a huge success; all our guests said it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended! Denise made a number of great recommendations during the planning, which we went with; they made the event better than we had hoped! She coordinates and supervises all the vendor activity for you, from initial vendor interviews, to wedding day deliveries, to after the wedding pick-ups. Denise went with us on all our visits to meet vendors. She had an agenda and schedule for each day, which made our wedding “homework” very easy. We leaned heavily on her advice, and were extremely happy with all our choices. Her planning and guidance made our experience stress-free, worry-free,... Read more

  • It was such a pleasure having the services of Denise and her staff this past weekend as I married my husband at Parker's Resort in Guerneville. I hired Denise for her "month of" package and she went well above and beyond that, taking trips to the venue over a year in advance with us and coordinating all of rentals and planning throughout the course of the year leading up to the event. Denise offered her support, professional advice, and cost saving suggestions throughout. Anything I asked for, Denise and her team were there to accommodate. Denise even went out of her way to pick up our linen rentals directly saving us the delivery fee. Denise and her team set everything up at the venue and made everything flawless. Whenever I asked her a question during planning or day of she had already taken care of it. She was always two steps ahead. I work in marketing and event planning, so to work with someone like me, I know can be difficult as I have high expectations and I kno... Read more

  • I would give Denise ten stars if I could! We live in Texas but wanted to have a wine country wedding. It was a little overwhelming to be so far away from all the details, but Denise helped us make our perfect day happen in August 2018. She even helped us plan two trips to wine country (and spent all weekend with us on both occasions) prior to the wedding and set us up with numerous appointments with venues and vendors to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. Denise was very professional, knowledgeable, patient, and helpful throughout the entire process. She offered her professional opinion when we needed it, but always listened to what WE wanted first and foremost. She was very flexible with our ever-changing wants and needs and patiently answered all our questions. I wanted the wedding planning process (and day-of!!) to be a stress-free as possible, and Denise made that happen. And in the end, our wedding day was perfect!! If you're looking for wedding planner in the San... Read more

  • Denise, What can I say? We did it? You did it? I honestly couldn't have done this without you. From the moment I heard your voice back in December, I knew you were the one for me. Your laughter was contagious, your calmness was soothing, and your expertise and professionalism is second to none. If I could bottle you, I would, and we would make a fortune. Thank you Denise from the bottom of my heart for making my wildest dreams come true . . . getting married on a vineyard in Napa to the most wonderful man in the world. It doesn't get much better than that. Meghan Markel and her team of planners have nothing on us. You have made MY wedding THE wedding of the year. And everyone is talking about it☺ Hugs, Karen & Larry

  • We hired Denise as our wedding planner for our wedding at St. Francis Winery & Vineyards. She came highly recommended from out venue and after a detailed interview, it was clear Denise was prepared for anything that might come our way. Denise was worth every penny and we could not have pulled off our big day without her. She worked with us for a year as we worked to solidify our vision of the event and hire vendors from caterers to florists to even picking out the china and glassware for the dinner tables. Denise is one of the most responsive people I’ve ever worked with and ensured we had an answer to our questions often within minutes of sending an email and certainly always within 12 hours. Our rehearsal and big day were flawlessly executed and incredibly memorable because of all of Denise’s work. Aside from her responsiveness, my favorite thing about working with Denise was her knowledge of many smaller scale vendors and openness to letting us go in any direction we desired and... Read more

  • Denise was great to work with! She helped us from the moment we got engaged until our wedding day. She definitely made the planning process go smoothly with handling all of our contracts, keeping us on schedule, and addressed any concerns or gaps in our planning immediately. We had no worries throughout the year and a half of preparation even with both our of busy careers. The wedding day went off without a hitch, and if there were any we definitely did not notice and were able to completely and thoroughly enjoy our wedding day. She took every detail we wanted for our wedding day and made them come to life! We strongly recommend her, she really knows what she is doing!

    Tram and Conor, and their families, were amazing to work with! This was a case of everyone being so supportive and wonderful. The family ranch was beautiful, the barn the perfect touch of rustic, and all of those personal touches were an extension of who this couple is. Thank you, Tram, for allowing me to be part of your day.
