  • Originally, my wife and I thought we could make our big day work without a coordinator since we had already done most of the work for the wedding anyway. However, we were talked into it and ended up choosing Lauren to help us with our big day. After the wedding, we were beyond grateful that we ended up having Lauren because, without her, our wedding wouldn't have been anywhere near perfect! She nailed every single detail down to the tee. She is very friendly, easy to work with, and always responded quickly. All in all, we were extremely thankful to have had Lauren make our wedding day even more perfect than we had envisioned. Do yourself a favor and book her!

  • Lauren was a dream to work with from the very beginning!!! I feel like I could write a novel on how incredible she is but I'll try my best to summarize it with this one review! I knew from our first phone call that she was the perfect fit for us. We wanted to DIY a lot but we also knew we needed a day of coordinator to make sure the day ran smoothly. Lauren knocked it out of the the park. It was the perfect day!!! She went ABOVE AND BEYOND for us from the get-go! Whether it was just a text to check in on our planning or a detailed day of list, she had it covered. She's professional, knowledgeable, talented and honestly just a darn treat to be around. She's the calm, level headed energy you want on your big day AND during all the days leading up to your wedding. We even had a snafu with our reception space on the WEEK OF THE WEDDING YA'LL! They changed ownership and the tables/decor that were supposed to be provided were possibly unavailable. Without Lauren I probably would have we... Read more

  • As the mother of the bride I couldn’t be happier with Lauren’s professionalism, creativity, timeliness, calm and clarity. She was responsive and sensitive to multiple variables during my daughter’s PERFECT WEDDING this fall. Highly recommend!

  • Lauren was wonderful from start to finish. She was there helping with literally everything. Besides the usual day of duties, she was also there to take care of my wife and I. She brought us each a plate of food during the reception knowing that we were so consumed with wedding guests and family. That simple gesture really made me feel like Lauren was just looking out for us in every single way. There are a million other examples of how fantastic she was on our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for a more caring, intelligent, experienced, and professional person to make our day so perfect. In fact a handful of friends at the wedding asked for Laurens contact information so they could hire her for their wedding! That's how great she is! Thank you so much Lauren. - Brian & Katy

  • Wow!! I just could not be any happier with the overall experience while working with Lauren. Out of all my vendors, she was the most responsive and detail orientated. She never missed any questions in my emails, had many suggestions when I asked for them and was always there when I needed her. Even when my venue lacked communication so we could all get on the same page, she took initiative to set up meetings ahead of time with the venue to make sure everything ran smoothly the day of. When I asked for something or a change to the plans, she made those changes promptly and finished the task in a more than timely manner. During the the day of, honestly everything worked as planned and all decor was in the right spot. I am so glad I chose her for my big day and would choose her again!!

  • Lauren is on top of it!! We were so pleased working with her as our wedding coordinator. She is extremely attentive to detail and did an amazing job of staying ahead of everything. That brought such peace of mind to us, because whatever planning hurdle or curveball came our way was no issue since I knew Lauren would have a solution. Our wedding went off perfectly thanks to her. It could not have been better!

  • My fiancé and I — and both our families — were so impressed by Lauren’s kindness, professionalism and attention to detail. we virtually worked with Lauren for 8 months while planning our ‘destination’ weekend wedding in Santa Barbara — half guests from Europe, half sprinkled around CA. She was not phased by so many moving parts! Lauren helped us plan our bi-cultural wedding with ease, thoughtfulness and high organization. She is flexibile, knowledgeable and was always there for us, every step of the way. Many people told us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to and I thank Lauren for helping this vision of throwing and intimate and beautiful yet casual French-American wedding weekend. We’re so grateful!

    Cheyenne and Quentin, Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding weekend! Your vision was such a joy to execute and I am so happy that you, your family, and friends had an amazing time. Best wishes to the two of you! Sincerely, Lauren Fernandez

  • We just had our wedding past weekend and it was just PERFECT. And it wouldn't have gone so perfectly without Lauren and Adrian. My husband and I are both product managers in Tech in SF -- i.e. we plan, organize, and execute for living. We knew going in that we were too much of control freaks to leave the whole wedding planning to someone else. But we also knew that we would need help since (1) it was going to be a mini-destination wedding (none of our family members/guests is from Santa Barbara) (2) we had 5 months to plan and (3) we needed someone to coordinate and execute plans for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. For 5 months, my husband, Lauren, and I basically worked like a well-functioning team, dividing and conquering. We kept one another well informed throughout the whole process. We also leaned a lot on her for advice on all kinds of things - finding vendors, taking pictures/measurement of the venue, what to do with paying for in-law's hair and makeup, what ... Read more

  • Lauren was phenomenal, and I’m not sure how we would have done it without her. She was great at contacting vendors and getting quotes and talking us through options. The week of our wedding, it became apparent that it would rain on our wedding day, and she seamlessly handled all the last minute adjustments that caused. I appreciated how she was able to never make me feel stressed or rushed, but at the same time gave us enough reminders to make sure we got everything done. Every meeting with her made me feel more confident about the wedding planning process. The day of, she handled everything for our reception and it turned out absolutely perfectly, even better than we had expected. Hiring Fancy Fern Events was definitely one of the best decisions we made.

    Taylor and Ethan, Thank you so much for your kind words and for giving me the oppportunity to plan and coordinate your big day! I’m so happy to hear that it was better than you expected and that you weren’t stressed during the process. Enjoy every second of your new lives together as husband and wife. Sincerely, Lauren Fernandez

  • Fancy Fern Events was the main reason my wedding went so smoothly! Lauren helped with all my pre-wedding prep and day of as well. She contacted vendors, found great deals, and when it came to the day of the wedding, was so organized that I didn’t even have to worry! She is an amazing multitasker, which was much needed since my wedding was around 250 people. Not to mention she is super friendly and is flexible with your schedule! She even helped coordinate my bridal shower which was a huge success! She has my highest recommendations and I definitely will be using Fancy Fern for my future events! :)

  • My husband and I severely underestimated the amount of work and stress that comes with planning a wedding. Luckily, we had the pleasure of working with Lauren who helped us during the planning phase (creating a timeline/schedule, calling vendors, finalizing decoration details, etc) all the way through to day of coordination. What stood out the most was Lauren’s promptness and overall willingness to help in anyway possible. On my actual wedding day, Lauren did an amazing job at communicating with all vendors and ensuring that we stayed on schedule. I highly recommend Fancy Fern Events. My only regret was not involving Lauren sooner! Thank you for making the greatest day of my life a night to remember.

  • Hiring Lauren as our wedding coordinator was the best decision we made during the whole planning process! She was extremely communicative, helpful, honest, and proactive - and helped make our vision a reality. We planned our whole wedding, but also work several jobs and live out of state. So at times, it was challenging to stick to our timeline and keep track of all the moving pieces. Here are the qualities we experienced with Lauren, and I’m confident you’d get the same: PROACTIVE: We shared our planning document with Lauren early on, and she was so great about jumping in and providing recommendations, asking questions we hadn’t thought of, and reminding us to do things before it was too late. We had a list of “items we need” and Lauren went so far as to lend us some things she had, search Craigslist/Offer Up/ Etsy to make suggestions, and even went out of her way to pick up some decor for us from a vendor in CA since we were out of state. HELPFUL: Lauren helped u... Read more
