  • Josh and Sam were not only such a delight to work with, but made the rest of our "planning" process seem so easy!! I always found myself to be super organized and didn't realize how much I needed their help. Especially amidst a pandemic, last minute venue change, etc. what was turning into a nightmare ended up being a dream come true thanks to Josh and Sam for the most amazing support to get us through THE most special day :))) I could not recommend them more!!

  • Golden Coast Planning, the heroes that helped make our wedding a dream come true in the middle of a pandemic. We first hired Golden Coast Planning back in 2019 for our wedding in 2020. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Josh and his team quickly mobilized to help us postpone the wedding to 2021. They worked closely with our vendors and were able to keep all our original vendor list for our 1 year postponed wedding. During the chaos and uncertainty of 2020-21, Josh personally took over the planning of our wedding with continued support from his team. Together, we were able to have the wedding we had dreamed of with 100% vaccination rate. We had a multicultural wedding including a Chinese tea ceremony, Persian sofreh ceremony, and a western ceremony. On the day of the wedding, Josh and Ambrosia worked tirelessly to help make everything go seamlessly. Ambrosia was a STAR as her positive and fun energy radiate and got everyone into party mode! We can't thank Josh and his team at Golden Coast ... Read more

  • My husband and I celebrated our wedding two weeks ago at Carmel Valley Ranch. I have interviewed at least 15 wedding coordinators or planners and I finally picked Golden Coast. Samantha (sammy) was my coordinator. Working with Samantha was such an amazing experience. Our wedding had a lot of moving parts and was placed in three different locations at the Ranch. Samantha was so so helpful, responsible, warm and reassuring. She was accessible all throughout the day, multi functioning a few things at a time. Full of energy with great attitude. I was so lucky to have her at my wedding day. I can’t recommend her enough. One more thing...she is trustworthy with whatever you need her and she has her whole attention to both details and the big picture. She managed your wedding day flow Flawlessly. I had lots of fun on my wedding day and thinking about it makes me smile big and Samantha has a big role in it.

  • As a professional wedding makeup artist who works with many vendors and as a future bride to be, I can vouch that Josh at golden coast is absolutely wonderful! I can't say enough about how great my experience was working with his company to plan my big day. We have been planning our destination wedding since last June and then of course covid hit before my original wedding date. Josh helped me to stay calm and weather the storm. He is a kind soul with an eagerness to please. You should definitely hire golden coast planning for your big day!

  • We began planning our wedding in April 2019 from Okinawa, Japan. Josh was so accommodating with the time difference and ensured we met/spoke regularly to plan our big day. Once we arrived in the area Josh and his team helped us choose a venue that matched our vision and was within our budget. As we weighed the options of cancelling or postponing due to COVID, Josh and his team provided us with sound guidance and support. We ultimately decided to downsize our wedding a month out, in the short time Josh rearranged current and new contracts for the event. His staff the day of (Ambrosia & Addy) was exceptional, they were extremely personable and accommodating towards us and all our family/friends. Thanks to Golden Coast our wedding day exceeded all my expectations, they significantly reduced the stress associated with wedding planning and allowed us to focus on the truly important things!

  • Throughout our entire wedding planning process, Josh was attentive, responsive, and super flexible because our work schedules varied. Destination weddings are difficult enough to plan but Josh and his team took everything and ran with it, making sure we were not stressed in the process. Come wedding day, Josh and Kim took care of EVERYTHING! Bringing them to Costa Rica with us was the best decision and would recommend them to any and everyone. We are so thankful to have gained friends through this!

  • Samantha was exceptional! She kept me on track with mini deadlines and also kept me sane! She was very helpful in organizing all my vendors and getting them setup on the big day. My wedding was a bit large and I am so glad I had Sammy there to keep everything flowing and on track. (Sorry Sammy, I know you were super busy that day!) We met Sammy at the Quail Lodge during a Golden Coast Planning event back in February. we immediately loved her personality and we knew she was it! Sammy, thank you for everything!

  • About 6 months out from my wedding, I had an epiphany and realized I needed to hire a day-of coordinator. I had done the "heavy lifting" of wedding planning already - all vendors were hired, budget was set, colors and vision were decided - but I realized I needed someone who could execute all of it for me on the wedding day when I would be otherwise occupied primping and marrying my man! (Specifically, my then-fiance and I had a conversation where I literally said, "BUT WAIT WHO WILL SET UP THE GUEST BOOK TABLE??? I HAVE TO GET MY HAIR DONE AT THAT TIME! I CAN'T BE TWO PLACES AT ONCE!!!" - and it was settled, we had to have a coordinator!!!) I feel so lucky that I was able to find Golden Coast and specifically, that I got to work with Hannah. After our first consultation call, she made a Google folder for us where we could store all important docs and info to share with her. Even though she was a "day-of / month-of" coordinator, Hannah was in contact with us for the 4-5 months leadi... Read more

  • Hiring Golden Coast was the best decision we made for our wedding this Spring. Josh was amazing. He was kind, detailed, supportive, and so helpful every step of the way. Because of his help, we were able to enjoy the weekend without having to worry about a single detail. His experience and finesse ensured that everything went beautifully. He truly went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you so much, Josh!

  • We are so thrilled that we hired Golden Coast for our backyard wedding. They were wonderful from day one. They’re presence was constant but never intrusive. They directed things beautifully and everything went off without a hitch. Thank you Vanessa and Clarissa for helping our special day be so special. We are incredibly grateful.

  • I loved working with Golden Coast Event planning for my wedding on June 22nd, 2019, especially with my day-of coordinator Hannah B! She was helpful prior to the wedding to help us condense and organize all our documents, and was particularly wonderful on our actual wedding day. She was on top of everything and was very reliable! On the actual day there's so many moving parts that sometimes you don't have time to explain where certain things need to be placed etc. so we basically only had time to hand Hannah a couple boxes of items, and she took care of everything beautifully! Everything was in it's place, where it was supposed to be. She was responsive and checked in on everyone frequently and was the point of contact for our vendors, which took a lot of pressure off of myself as the bride and my parents. Overall she gave me a lot of confidence, support, and was trustworthy on the most important day of my life! My husband and I were so happy to work with her and the Golden Coast team a... Read more
