  • Alison is the absolute best! She goes above and beyond what her duties entailed, met with us as many times as we needed to make our event happen without any extra charge, and called/facetimed us as many times as needed to make us feel comfortable with our wedding plans. Due to covid, our wedding kept changing, and she took all the changes with stride, was able to execute a safe, socially distant intimate wedding beautifully and made us feel so at ease with all our changes and ever evolving plans. Seriously, couldn't have asked for anyone better- she is the best!

  • Allison is an excellent wedding planner very caring and responsive most importantly she listens to understand the unique needs and wants of her clients. Allison was very adaptable to our ever-changing vision due to the Covid restrictions she was honest every step of the way and insured we were getting the very best in our ever-changing vendors. Her timeline was impeccable And went far to relieve our stress of the day. We would highly recommend Allison to anybody getting married

  • Alison is very thorough and helpful. She sees things the way the client does and figures out the logistics. She asks good questions like: What do you want this to look like. etc.

  • Alison is simply the best, top quality, very professional, and always responds to questions. My daughters day went perfect and Alison kept everything going at a great pace. Alison was on time or early to each meeting and gave great advice and help throughout the planning stage. I highly recommend Alison for any wedding, she was a pleasure to work with.

  • Alison was truly amazing! I loved working with her and she did such an amazing job keeping me sane and organized throughout the wedding process. And then the day of, I kept feeling like I didn’t see her, but it’s because she was running around handling everything and making sure everything went so smooth, and it did. I didn’t have a single worry on my wedding day because of her! She’s amazing!

  • I don’t know how we would’ve pulled this off without Alison. From the moment we hired her all the chaos seemed to vanish and our wedding became a well oiled machine. She coordinated with all of our vendors and took care of all the little details. We plan a lot of events and thought we could go it alone but having Alison allowed us to enjoy our wedding as guests instead of feeling like we had a million tasks to do. As if that wasn’t enough Alison went the extra mile for us time and again. Friday night at the rehearsal dinner when Alison wasn’t even on the clock yet we realized we were missing some a/v cables. Without hesitation she was on her way to Best Buy to save the day. We also wanted to surprise our guests with in n out burger after the wedding the logistics of which proved very difficult. Alison navigated the entire process for us taking yet another stress off of our plate. Thank you Alison for helping to make our wedding amazing!

  • Alison was very easy to work with and it was an added value that she already had relationships with most of our other vendors. My husband and I both work full time so it was nice to know that the little details were being ironed out behind the scenes. On the day of the wedding, I even emailed her my vows and she brought them printed in a plastic sleeve. Our friends and family raved about our wedding--5 stars from us!

  • Alison did an INCREDIBLE job coordinating our wedding. She was so on top of everything, she made sure I had everything planned out well in advance of our date. Even though we only did the day of/month before service, as soon as we booked her she made sure we were on track with our different vendors, and even met some vendors on her own for us since we live several hours away from our venue. The day of the ceremony, she made sure everything went off flawlessly! Couldn't have been happier with Alison, couldn't recommend her more :)

  • I am a wedding professional myself and I just had to share the professional experience we had with Alison, Monarch Wedding Planning. We work with many wedding planners but the communication and experience was the BEST! Our bride felt comfortable and in capable hands thru her wedding planning process because of Alison's attention to details. We would highly recommend Monarch Wedding Panning to our couples and couples who want a worry free wedding day! Bravo to Alison...she lives up to her name and treats all her couples like Royalty! Many many thanks, Nancy Stein Stein's BBQ & Catering

  • Alison was amazing!!! She helped our vision come to life in such a short amount of time. We hired her as the "month of" coordinator and she was more than that. She reviewed all of our vendor contracts, met with us months before the wedding, had phone chats whenever we needed and was always on call when I would message her. I showed up with everything I had for the wedding and she made sure there was a place for it. Everything was organized and went so smooth on wedding day. She made sure everything and everyone was on track and we had just what we needed. Alison has such a sweet and calm personality that it really helped me as the bride stay focused and know that I was in good hands. Alison was a dream and I would hands down recommend her and her services. Thank you Alison for all that you did to make our dream wedding come to life.

  • Alison was so beyond amazing! My wedding went on without any hiccups (at least that's how I felt). I know behind the scenes it was hectic and things didn't go 100% according plan, as nothing ever does, but I never felt that. Alison was prepared, sending out timelines and communicating with all the vendors. I like to be in control and it is extremely hard for me to hand that over to someone else. However, I also didn't want to feel any stress on my wedding day and simply just wanted to enjoy it and I did! I trusted Alison completely to do manage everything and she did such a perfect job! Could not recommend her more as a wedding planner!

  • Finding Alison was the very first thing we did for our wedding, and let me tell you, it was the best decision we could have made. Planing a wedding is hard, there are A LOT of details to keep track of.... especially during the actual day of. You want to be relaxed and present on your big day. Alison was there to make sure everything ran smoothly, and it did. How many people can say that their wedding went smoothly? With no snags and everything on time? Ours did. She was there to coordinate with the vendors, create a timeline, think of details that we would have never thought of. She's planned many weddings, trust me, there are things that only experience can bring. During the night of we were able to relax and socialize with guests, and when it came time for a bouquet toss, or first dance.... she was there to tell us where to go. If you are getting married, go with a planner..... and go with Monarch. Five stars!

  • Recently my daughter had her amazing wedding at a winery in Paso Robles. My daughter and my wife and I met and retained Alison from Monarch Wedding Planning to help organize and plan my daughter’s special day. Immediately we all felt confident that Alison would do a great job. Even though Alison was supposed to provide only the Day of Coordination Service she did so much more. She was so organized and worked with my daughter for several months before the day, preparing ‘to do’ lists, timelines and keeping open and ongoing communication with all the vendors. When the wedding day finally arrived Alison was excellent and on task, she made sure everything was set up correctly at the winery including the flowers, seating chart and table settings. The bouquets were delivered to the bride at the right time and the guests had what they needed. The wedding was a lovely memorable day for all of us and I would definitely recommend the planning services of Monarch Wedding Planning. Ev... Read more

  • Alison was wonderful to work with! She really made me feel like a guest at my wedding (which is what I wanted!). When I was walking down the aisle, everything came together and looked just as I had imagined it.
