  • As soon as we booked our wedding venue, we knew that the planning process was beginning to get real. And, we had no idea about how to go about it. We had been looking up to-do lists/ideas online but we knew we needed more guidance and help. We had two overarching goals in mind for the wedding planning process: (1) for the process to be as stress-free as possible, and (2) for us to just experience our special day to the fullest, with so much love. This is what drew us to FAWE. Heather was super responsive, and she explained our options clearly. I knew immediately from our first phone conversation that I would love anyone from FAWE. Heather was genuine and friendly--she was truly interested in our love story and in our wedding planning goals. It was such a clear and easy choice for us to choose them. Flash forward to soon after booking FAWE: we were introduced to our day-of wedding coordinator, Lisa. To put it simply, Lisa is amazing. From the very beginning, we clicked. She is p... Read more

    Hi Ruth! Thank you SO much. We love hearing how special your day was :) I just received your pictures the other day, you and Percy look absolutely fabulous together and I love the Star Wars theme details throughout the day!

  • Heather made our wedding planning as seamless as possible. We planned our wedding from long distance, as we live in Colorado. It was an event in my wife’s (proud to say that now!) parent’s back yard, which means lots of details that needed to be planned with no real set structure. Venues can make things easier as they have set areas where events can be held, but Heather made the creative process a piece of cake. The day of coordination was fantastic, and we were able to enjoy our big day knowing that everything was in good hands with Heather and her team. She was honest about her opinions when making decisions, but never pushy, and supported our vision the entire way. If you are on the fence about Forever and Always, don’t be. Pull the trigger, you won’t be disappointed.

  • When we started planning our wedding with Heather, we envisioned an 100-person ceremony overlooking the ocean. As COVID cancellations roiled the wedding industry, Heather helped us pull off a five-person wedding consistent with all public health guidance. She even partnered with our photographer to record the wedding, so all of our friends could watch via Zoom. We were incredibly grateful for her flexibility and attentiveness as we pivoted all of our plans. We are looking forward to working with Heather again when we can finally celebrate with all of our friends in person.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Heather on my nieces wedding. I’m a Event Planner so I know all of the hard work that goes into the day of a event coordinating. Heather and her team were spot on! I couldn’t have done a better job myself. They where very professional and organized. They payed attention to every detail. It was nice to sit back and trust Heather and her team to execute a perfect day.

  • I originally had a wedding planned for June 2020 but we all know how summer weddings went. Stressed and unsure of what to do, Heather was more than willing to work with us until we had a plan in place. Not only did we change our date to August, we changed our location from West Covina to San Diego. Heather was more than willing to do whatever to make sure we had a wedding. Helping me figure out a place that would be willing to host a reception was the most challenging and if it wasn’t for Heather, we probably would not have found a place. The day of the wedding she made sure everything was set and even had to make sure some yogis did not invade our ceremony site! So because of her, I do not have pictures of people in the background doing downward dog! Thanks, Heather! I cannot thank her enough for helping me through all the frustrations and stress of dealing with a covid wedding. Our ceremony site was setup better than I envisioned and the reception went off without any pro... Read more

  • Heather, owner and operator of "Forever and Always" wedding and event planning, navigated our daughter and fiancé through postponing their wedding relatively last minute due to the pandemic. She contacted all of the vendors and renegotiated all of the contracts. We had many because the wedding was at our home. During the initial planning stages she arranged and accompanied me to all of the tastings and meetings at our home with the vendors. She maintains good relationships with her preferred vendors and follows up diligently with unresponsive vendors. She responds to texts, emails, and phone calls promptly or in a timely manner. She comes up with creative ideas when needed or asked. Our daughter lives in Colorado and was able to keep in contact with she and her fiancé regularly during the pandemic lockdown and kept us abreast of any changes in state policy when needed. She is incredibly organized and coordinated the wedding day very smoothly. I am grateful to Heather for all that sh... Read more

  • I was planning a multicultural wedding with several ceremonies and outfits. Heather really understood my needs and budget right off from the bat and she was super easy to talk to. FAWE was the only vendor to give me a proposal that fit exactly what I asked for. When I had expressed I was worried I couldn’t handle a specific ceremony by myself, instead of taking advantage of my worry (and adding extra costs), she gave me confidence that it was simple and I could do it from her previous experience. I appreciated her honesty and felt like she was on my side. Since I planned everything and my venue provided a lot of what I needed, I decided to get a day of coordinator and worked with Courtney and her assistant. I really loved that Courtney really understood the nuances of multicultural weddings and knew how to help me hone the schedule I created so that it fit everything that I wanted. She was a great sound board to bounce ideas off of as I was putting everything together in calls le... Read more

  • My husband and I hired Heather as a day-of-coordinator. Heather definitely exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond, and we were so happy to have found her! From the start, Heather was very organized, responsive, and easy to work with. What we loved most about working with Heather that day, was that her and her assistant were both super attentive and on top of everything. They made sure that vendors arrived on time for set up and didn't fall behind schedule. It was obvious that they truly cared about us and our wedding running smoothly. A couple weeks before our wedding I felt stressed every day leading up to the big day, but my husband and I were so surprised that we were able to enjoy the day and actually ended up having a LOT of fun! I am typically a perfectionist about almost everything but Heather was able to execute what we had envisioned for our wedding day. We would DEFINITELY recommend Heather and her team!

  • Heather was exactly what we needed to pull together a dream wedding, She kept us on track with regular communication and timelines and took over all the vendor interface during the last 30 days. Heather was responsive, professional and knowledgeable regarding vendors and did a fantastic job of coordinating. The day of the wedding, she made sure things went smoothly, took care of last minute things that came up and made the day perfect! I recommend Heather without reservation, she knows her business!

  • WE LOVE HEATHER!!! We weren't even sure we were going to hire a day of coordinator for our wedding when we started planning, but we are SO glad we did. Best decision we made! From the moment I reached out to her for more information on her services - she was thorough, responsive, and professional. We then met up with her for coffee and clicked right away and knew we wanted to work with her! She's more than just a "day of coordinator". She's there to check in monthly to make sure you're on track with planning and always around for any questions you have. I was a pretty organized planner, but Heather offered so many tools to take up the planning / organization up a notch! When it came to our wedding day this past weekend, she was an absolute rockstar! From set-up to making sure things ran smoothly timeline wise to checking in on my husband and I throughout the day, her experience really made the day go so smoothly and made our lives easier. We had so many of our guests comment on h... Read more

  • I don’t know where to start! Heather from start to finish ensured both the planning and event were on schedule. The day was absolutely flawless and I credit Heather and her team with making our wedding day absolutely perfect. She was able to execute every detail I had conveyed perfectly. She took the stress off all of our shoulders with her assistance. Looking back I don’t know how we would of pulled it off with out her!! Don’t look any further give her a call and you won’t be disappointed she will make your wedding day absolutely spectacular!!

  • I first heard of Heather from a friend that saw her in action at a wedding she was in. She raved about her experience and wow was she right! Words cannot express my gratitude for Heather. My wedding was something out of a magazine! It was the perfect wedding and it's all because of Heather and Forever and Always Weddings and Events. From the moment we had our first interview, I knew we were making the right decision. She is professional, responsive and flexible. I felt compared to other planners that I interviewed we were getting the best value and the absolute best person to work with. When our wedding day finally came, everyone around me kept commenting on how calm I was. Heather handled every last detail and made sure I was able to enjoy my day. It was everything I had hoped for and I thoroughly enjoyed the planning process because of her.

  • It is hard to even start writing our review for Forever & Always Weddings & Events because every part of trusting Heather with our wedding was magical. From the very beginning, after we hopped off of our first introduction video chat with Heather, we both looked at each other and said “she’s hired!”. We met with a few other planners prior to meeting Heather but never felt that seamless connection with others as we did with Heather. She wasn’t boastful or aggressive, yet we could tell she was confident and experienced. That she was! During our wedding journey, Heather did monthly check in calls with us and was more than accommodating with our 8-5 work schedules. Those monthly check ins were task-oriented and deadline driven, which completely helped us be accountable for all things wedding. In between those months, we had many minor but important questions that Heather answered promptly with experienced advice. Our wedding day felt so seamless and we could not have done it ...

  • I highly recommend Forever & Always Weddings & Events for any wedding or event. Heather made my daughters wedding day perfect. I didn’t have to lift a hand for anything because Heather and her staff had everything under control. We spoke many times before the wedding so she could get to know the bride and groom. She had a very clear understanding of how the couple wanted things to play out and made it happen. I was able to completely enjoy the wedding without any worries. All I could say about them is WOW WOW WOW! I would hire Heather at Forever & Always for my future events.

  • I was looking for a day of coordinator, since I was looking forward to planning our wedding! I met with Heather and Lisa to talk about my needs for the day of. I had already created a book (which I brought with me) of ideas I had for the wedding. I was looking for someone that would be able to execute my vision since I knew I would be preoccupied enjoying my day : ) They were both very personable and felt that I could trust them to carry out my vision for the day. Six months before the wedding Lisa would check in with me monthly without fail on the first of the month! This really helped me plan ahead and kept me on track on things I didn't even think of. Lisa communicated with me all day the day before to make sure we were ready for the next day. The day of, Lisa delivered! She executed my vision perfectly. I couldn't have asked for anything more. During the reception Lisa check in on us to make sure we had drinks and food! So important since everyone wants to congratulate you and you ... Read more
