  • Nancy is absolutely AMAZING!!! She went above and beyond in every aspect of our wedding planning! She was even able to officiate our wedding at the last minute! Everything came out perfect and I can honestly say I wouldn't have been able to have my dream wedding without her! She led me through the whole process and took care of everything like it was her own wedding! I could only give 5 stars but Nancy definitely deserves 10!!

  • We hired Nancy to be our wedding planner about a year before our big day. We were having a destination wedding in Santa Barbara and we needed help and advice for different things in the Central Coast area. We had to do a lot of things by phone or email and Nancy made the process very easy. She made herself available to me whether it be via phone or email. She was always prompt at getting back to me, as I had a lot of questions and needed advice regarding certain aspects of the wedding. When the time came for the rehearsal dinner she was there to help guide us through the ceremony and kept everyone on track so we could get to our dinner on time. The day of the wedding, although I was obviously getting ready and spending time with my wedding party and family, she took care of the setting up the reception. We decided to not order center pieces or rent them and purchased them on our own, needless to say there was A LOT to set up and she did it all! She set up our tables, candy buffet, and ... Read more

  • I was so fortunate to find Nancy Ortega to coordinate my daughters’ wedding. Although she is a complete professional with contract stating exactly what is and isn’t included, she goes above and beyond what is written on paper. Always organized and on top of everything, she understood exactly what my daughter needed and wanted and made it happen. Nancy was prompt and responsive and always available. Nancy knows all the best wedding vendors in the area and has a great working relationship with them. We in turn loved working with the people she recommended: Bree Bartells from Blush Beauty, Gina’s Piece of Cake, Captured Moments Photography, Elegant Details Flowers, Casablanca Bridal, The Party Place, Lompoc Veterans’ Memorial Building, and Nancy’s very capable and cheerful assistant Lisa D. Bisquera. Nancy worked with us for months coordinating with all the vendors to ensure proper timing and setup. She organized the rehearsal, set up and décor the day of, and I can... Read more

  • Nancy was able to officiate my wedding with less than 24 hours notice. She was able to write some great vows for me and my wife. The ceremony was mainly for us but having someone like Nancy, who was extremely flexible helped make it fun. We will be using them as our day of/ coordinator for our big ceremony as well. Thank you ladies for the great job you did, for being flexible, writing great vows and just letting the ceremony happen organically.

  • Nancy is a true gem and total professional when it comes to event planning. She will LISTEN to you and take your vision and run with it. Instead of trying to impose her own vision (which some event planners do) she works tirelessly to create the event that YOU have envisioned and will guide you through what she knows will and won't work. This is very much appreciated! If I've learned one thing about planning a wedding and hiring a professional to iron out all the details, it is to trust the event planner! Nancy will always have your best interests at heart and will go above and beyond to make your day special. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants the best.

  • I am a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding where the bride does not have a coordinator. This is the week before the wedding (when a coordinator would be most helpful!) and called Nancy out of the blue to see if she could provide some recommendations for last-minute details. She was most helpful and delightful to chat with, and her recommendations have worked out quite well. I wish I was planning a wedding in the area so I could hire her as my coordinator - I'm sure she is fabulous!!!

  • I had went to a wedding on Sep15, and I cant tell you more on how Professional Nacy was. Nacy worked to the fullest and took care of everything the Bride and Groom needed, not just the Bride and Groom but also the Wedding Party and Guest's. No doubt in a second i would have Nacy cordinate my wedding!

  • I found Nancy on Wedding Wire since I was planning a destination wedding and was not familiar with the area. She was organized and assisted me throughout the wedding planning process. I was able to ship my wedding dress to her and she had it steamed for me and brought it to my hotel the day of the wedding which was nice. She also helped me find vendors for renting items such as the trellis and runner and also suggested a good airbrush tanning place to go to while I was in town before the wedding.

  • Nancy was so incredibly helpful at calming my nerves :0) The day of my wedding everything went smoothly. The drama I am hearing about after the fact I was completely unaware of during (which is what I wanted). Her communication with my other vendors was amazing and I believe she built some new relationships with them. Cartouche staff members came through when we needed a little extra help moving tables and chairs. Overall Cartouche Weddings & Events by Nancy Ortega was the best day-of coordinator I could've asked for. Thanks Nancy!
