  • Having Risa coordinate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. We hired Risa as a day-of coordinator but she was working with us a month prior to the wedding. Our wedding was at Park Winters, CA and even though she is based in Sacramento, she met us twice before the wedding to walk through the venue and to guide us through the rehearsal at no extra charge. Risa is incredibly well-organized; she reached out to all vendors and created a in-depth timeline that allowed the day to go by smoothly. She has a great attention to detail, and caught on to some potential mishaps throughout the day. My goal was to avoid putting our family members to work on our wedding day, so Risa took care of all decorations, set up and tear down. She was very pleasant to work with and easy to communicate with. Months prior to the wedding, I believed that a coordinator would not be necessary since my husband and I planned our wedding entirely and we had very reliable vendors. Howev... Read more

  • Wedding planning is no easy feat. Risa helped my fiance and I make our special day perfect. She answered my emails and questions right away and brought up many questions, ideas and scenarios that I never considered during the planning process. Risa is very experienced with weddings and is even able to help answer a legal question or two. It was extremely helpful having her coordinate with all the venders and provide final checks with them. She braved the triple digit Sacramento heat on our wedding day to help decorate our wedding arch as well as placed the flowers on top of our wedding cake. And they both looked great! We were so happy we hired Risa to help us coordinate our wedding. You blew us away :)

  • My fiancé and I just got married this past weekend, we used Risa day of coordinator services. I can not imagine a more professional, detail oriented person. Risa was personable, friendly and above all else extremely great at pulling information together to make your wedding day stress free. Risa's Day of services are by no means just the day of, she must have kept in constant contact with my fiancé constantly making sure that she had everything correct. We also had a home visit with her a couple of weeks before the wedding just to go over details that we might have not thought of, she was there coordinating our rehersal. She took care of our wedding timeline, she contacted all our vendors and was in constant contact with our venue. Rita also set up all our wedding decor, mind you we did not have that much of a put together theme, but when Risa was done with decorating, it was perfect. We got way more then we expected with Risa, if your looking for someone that is hardworking, ... Read more

  • Working with Risa was great! She is very professional, organized and reliable. Risa listened to every single detail that we wanted and made sure we had the wedding of our dreams. Anytime we had a question, Risa responded quickly. There were some cultural traditions that we wanted to include at our reception that Risa wasn't familiar with, she looked them up online to make sure she knew exactly what would be happening and how much time she needed to fit them in our timeline. I am still on cloud nine, thinking about my wedding and how perfect it was. I know for sure it wouldn't have been so great without Risa's help! If you are getting married and are looking for someone to make your dream wedding come true, we highly recommend Risa!

    Thank you, Liz! It was such a pleasure working with you and Alfonso to make your wedding a success! I loved meeting your families and learning about the various Mexican wedding traditions. I wish you so much love and happiness in your married life!

  • I reached out to Risa 10 months before my wedding already completely overwhelmed and right away she was there for me! From multiple events, to traditional rituals, to accommodating out of state guests and then to be sure the events are a hoot themselves, was not an easy task! She kept me sane and organized throughout the planning process and the day of the actual wedding Risa was at the venue early and kept me updated on which vendors had arrived, showing me photos of the decor (while I was getting hair and makeup done and having my photoshoot). From delays to any other issues that came up, Risa was always there--She even packed us a to-go bag of our wedding food because we did not have time to sit and eat properly. I would recommend Risa to anyone planning a wedding big or small!

  • Hiring Risa as our coordinator was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We hired her only 4 weeks before our wedding (which had 175 guests) when all the logistical planning was getting stressful, and she was a God send! She helped us create the timeline, communicated with all our vendors to double check any potential problems or discrepancies, and finalize all the details. On the day of our wedding, I didn't have worry about anything for setup or how things would be executed because I knew we were in good hands. We had DIY centerpieces for 19 tables that had to be set up with water, floating candles, and flowers that the catering set-up crew couldn't do, so both her and her assistant took care of it and made them look beautiful! Risa had also planned the timeline very well and made sure we were able to get through our program so the photographer could capture everything before she left (an hour before the reception was over). She also was extremely helpful at the end of t... Read more

  • Risa was, by far, the all-star, MVP (most valuable planner) of our wedding vendor team. Anyone can help you pick out this or that, or tell you what you can easily find on the internet with 10 minutes of searching. Risa goes above-and-beyond; she actually provides GREAT ADVICE and COUNSEL to you. She has an opinion about things; and she's right. We had numerous times where we would explain to a vendor that "well our wedding planner suggested . . . " and they would glow with happiness and praise because they had the exact same opinion (whether it was timing of the event, indoor vs outdoor, band vs DJ, sequence of photos, etc.). Risa has unparalleled tastes for helping you create the perfect event that your guests will never forget (and that will give you a lifetime of memories). We will, without hesitation, hire Risa again in the future for our next event! I can't say enough great things about her foresight, steady planing, and consistency when dealing with other vendors.

  • Risa was amazing to work with. She was so attentive and detail oriented. During the more stressful moments of wedding planning, she helped us to stay calm and provided us with the most helpful advice. I cannot recommend her enough!

  • We hired Risa at the strong recommendation of a friend to be the "day-of" wedding coordinator for our daughter's wedding on October 29, 2016. Thank goodness we listened to our friend! Risa was so much more than a "day-of" coordinator. She was full of wise counsel and always available for consult during the weeks before the wedding. At the rehearsal, wedding ceremony and reception, Risa managed a rather complicated venue complete with tents and structures, herded our large crowd into each place flawlessly, and coordinated all the vendors. If you want a smart, extremely capable, positive, efficient, relaxed wedding coordinator, then Risa is your woman!

  • Risa was absolutely lovely to work with! Calm under the pressure and detail-oriented, she wrangled family members and vendors, set-up escort cards, family photos, etc., AND helped with our DIY flower arrangements. She kept the first look on schedule when our photographer got a little confused and probably handled a few other unknown-to-me snafus. We hired Risa to be our day-of-coordinator, but she went above and beyond day-of duties. Her monthly check-ins kept us on track and her on-point questions in the weeks leading up to the wedding ensured that nothing fell through the cracks. There are so many moving parts to a wedding (even our 120-person, relatively chill, outdoor BBQ affair had 10+ vendors), and it was invaluable to have Risa there to coordinate the day so our families could enjoy themselves. Her fee was reasonable too!

  • I never would have survived the wedding planning experience without Risa. Risa was extremely responsive, thoughtful, and engaged in the planning process, and helped us sort out our complex venue and schedule. She's extremely detail oriented, but she doesn't lose sight of the big picture. Thanks to her advice, our day went off flawlessly, and we couldn't recommend her more.

  • Phenomenal! Absolutely phenomenal! The best choice we made for our wedding. Risa is everything you could ask for in a wedding coordinator- organized, professional, detail-oriented and overall a great person. Risa put together a timeline for us and took care of all the details...all of them. Our wedding ran smoothly because of Risa. She also made the day of our wedding less stressful because she did everything- set up decor, organized vendors, arranged the wedding party, kept us on time, and helped with the clean up. Because of all her hard work both before and the day of our wedding, we were able to enjoy our day. Risa did such a great job, she deserves ten stars!

  • Risa is wonderful! Highly recommend her to any bride who wants to be sure the big day will run seamlessly. She managed multiple vendors and did not need much from me the day-of- exactly what you want. She checked in with me whenever something important came up, and was a pleasure to work with.

  • Risa is wonderful. Risa is responsive, flexible, very detailed and result oriented. She works with you from the day you book through the wedding day. She makes you feel comfortable and will be as hands on and off as much as you need and is always there to provide an opinion or guidance when needed. She thinks of things that you wouldn't think of and asks the right questions and always has your best interest in mind. She came to us during the wedding only when she needed us to be somewhere, to provide us updates or when anything major came up. She was always calm and helpful during the wedding. Risa goes above and beyond and worked with our last minute changes during the wedding and still kept everything on track. On the day of the wedding, we had a lot of decor for her to setup and she delivered. I couldn't have imagined our day without Risa. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a DOC (and already have to my friends). She was one of my favorite and easi... Read more

  • Risa was absolutely amazing! We booked her very last minute to do day-of coordinating for the wedding. I talked to a few planners before finding Risa, and they all made me feel stressed talking to them-- saying how little time was left for them to get organized, how soon the wedding was, how their prices would be MUCH steeper due to the fact that the wedding was so soon, etc. Not Risa! She was chill as a cucumber but still on top of every detail. I literally don't know what we would have done without her. She was authoritative and quick to make decisions but never came off as pushy and was extremely accommodating to my ideas and making sure my vision came through. My sister, who was my MOH, is getting married in a few months, asked me 5 times during my wedding to find out if Risa was available her date! LOVE LOVE LOVE.
