  • Jamie was the reason our wedding was so beautiful, why our dinner and dessert was so delicious and every hour of every moment went smoothly! I Highly, highly recommend her. Seriously the food was better than any wedding I’ve been to with such a homemade feel and professional quality, with kind and attentive serve staff! She knows what she’s doing, and had a great assortment of rentals to choose from as well.

  • We had the absolute pleasure of working with Jamie from Sea Stars Catering & Events for our Big Sur wedding! I’ve never seen someone who works behind the scenes get as much praise as she (rightly so) did from our guests. Jamie knows the area like nobody else - she helped us decide on vendors and referred us to the best DJ, transportation, rentals, bartender, florist, and even local wines to serve. She can really give you the proper guidance to make your dream wedding a reality and is everything that one should look for in a wedding planner. She is professional, incredibly talented, detailed orientated, organized, creative, and very accommodating. You can truly get the sense that she cares as much about your event as you do. Her catering, also knocked it out of the park when it came to hors d’oeuvres and dinner! She helped us select a variety of passed appetizers and customized a family-style dinner menu! The food portions were very generous (nobody left hungry) and the quali... Read more

  • Jamie was our caterer and planner, which made most of our wedding-planning process stress-free. We provided her with an idea of what we wanted, a few specific details, and let her do her thing. She's responsive, has a great design sense, and everyone keeps telling us how the food that her team served for our cocktail hour and dinner was the best wedding food they've had. The week before our wedding, we found out it was going to rain and Jamie really threw it into high gear, figuring out tents and rearranging our reception design so that we could still have our wedding outdoors. In addition, Kristen, our day-of coordinator for SeaStars, was vigilant, taking care of us the entire day and ensuring everything went well!

  • Jamie was very attentive: -listening carefully to the feel and presentation of our special day- -developing a menu to address the diverse interests and restrictions of our guests =bringing in other groups to complete the day (sound, flowers, cocktails, lighting, equipment rental, etc.) -and above all, executing it with grace and precision. We would highly recommend her and her team.

  • Jamie is amazingly good at what she does, and she does a TON! Shes a coordinator, planner, property manager, rental manager and chef with connections to everything else you could possibly need for your wedding day. I can't tell you how great it was to go through Jamie for our wedding and hire her to help us with all the details you could imagine. Shes organized and talented and a complete one stop shop which made the planning process so much less stressful. Instead of emailing and dealing with a million vendors and organizing them I could go through Jamie for almost all of it and she would keep me in the loop through every step of the process. I was having a hard time envisioning our event and deciding on some major items and Jamie was able to create a vision of what I wanted after a few emails and phone conversations, and the end results were exactly what we wanted. She could see what I wanted even though I couldn't put it into clear terms! We had a few scenarios we needed to trouble... Read more

  • I can't recommend Jamie and her team enough! Jamie was our planner, day of coordinator, caterer, handled our rentals and she made the most delicious wedding cake I have ever had! We spoke to Jamie about our vision for months and when we finally had our 120 person wedding in October 2018 at Henry Miller Memorial Library, it went off without a hitch! It was absolutely the most special day of our lives. Every detail was executed thoughtfully, and exceeded expectations to bring our vision to life. Jamie was extremely professional, and had such wonderful attention to detail. She offered so much advice and support throughout the process and was very helpful while walking through making important decisions. Every vendor on her preferred vendor list that we worked with matched Jamie's professionalism and were wonderful. They truly made our wedding the most spectacular!

  • Jamie is an incredible talent and brings so much passion and experience to the table when planning an event in Big Sur. Her style is immaculate and she was extremely supportive of our vision and forthcoming with invaluably helpful information about how to pull off a seamless wedding in Big Sur. Our wedding at Henry Miller Library was a complete dream, and we owe a huge part of that success to Jamie and her exceptional team. Not only did Jamie provide planning support and out of this world local/seasonal food service, but she also referred us to our DJ, rentals company, bartender, and florist. Her bench is deep with top notch event professionals who know and love Big Sur and who bring that love and attention to the events that they produce. My husband and I look back on our wedding with such deep gratitude and fondness; it truly was one of the most perfect days of our life. We cannot recommend Jamie and Sea Stars (and her rentals company, Star Dust, for AMAZING vintage furniture rentals... Read more

  • I knew I wanted to hire Jamie the moment I spoke with her over the phone for a consultation. She has an incredibly grounded, calming demeanor that makes her absolutely wonderful to work with during a somewhat intrinsically stressful event. Her style/taste is impeccable, so you truly can trust her judgement. You can give her just vague concepts and she seems to know exactly what you want, or if you have a very specific vision, she can work with that as well. I also loved how down-to-earth and willing she was to work with my budget. She was more than happy to come up with solutions to make the event less expensive. She also was incredibly flexible/calming during potential weather shifts that occur. She knew the event space (Wind and Sea-- also HIGHLY recommended), so well that she could account for any potential blip/permutation that could occur, and was prepared! When the wedding actually occurred it was better than I could have even imagined. The food and decor was INCREDIBLE. She w... Read more

  • Jamie was everything I was looking for in a wedding planner, coordinator, caterer, cake-maker, rental company, stylist, and -- at times -- bridal therapist. :) Every time I told friends that I had one person who was doing all of the above, their jaw would drop. Numerous guests continue to rave that the food and cake were hands-down THE BEST wedding food they'd ever had--or best meal in general. I felt somehow proud to say it was just Jamie (and her chef) that did it all. I will forever remember a few of the dishes (scalloped potatoes with pancetta! Drooling now just thinking of them.) Beyond food, she truly got my aesthetic -- or my blurry vision of one -- and elevated it. She recommended me to local vendors who were SO perfect -- our bar company, our florist, hair, shuttle, local woodworker, literally everything. She kept me calm. She knew when to be floating behind the scene, keeping stress low, and when to get in front stressful situations so that I didn't experience them. ... Read more

  • Working with Jamie and her team was an absolute pleasure. I was a difficult bride in the sense that I didn't have a ton of strong opinions about what I wanted for our day. Jamie was able to work with me in narrowing down a theme and creating a vision that was perfectly personalized to us as a couple. The flowers and rentals were so gorgeous and really transformed our ceremony location and reception site. She had tons of recommendations about vendors to use in the area and was able to provide guidance to help us stick to and get the most value out of our budget. She took all of the stress out of the planning process and out of the day itself with her calm demeanor and excellent organizational skills. She was on top of every detail and the wedding weekend was planned perfectly from start to finish so I had nothing to worry about but spending time with my husband and my family and friends. She is a deeply kind, creative, calm, and friendly person who we felt honored to have included as a ... Read more

  • I'm not sure I could say enough to emulate the experience that Jamie and her team at Sea Stars created for our wedding day. We began the process of planning with her over 6 months before the wedding and she guided my husband and I through every decision, every step of the way. Jamie truly went above and beyond in the planning process. We had never organized an event like this and were even more out of our element since we were from out of the area and didn't know any of the available vendors, so Jamie really took over and helped us define exactly what we would need for comfort and an overall perfect wedding day. Now, lets get to the food...the highlight of her services! Jamie and her team prepared the most decadent dining experience for us and our guests. My husband, a chef himself, was incredibly impressed by her flavor palettes and pairing of ingredients, as well as the wonderful environment and aroma that was created when they prepared all of the ingredients and dishes from scrat...

  • I'm not one to write reviews but since I have endured the wedding planning process and I know how special this day is for others I figured I would share my two cents. Before you start reading, please understand this is just our opinion. We are from the east coast and we knew from the second we were engaged we wanted to get married in Big Sur. We wanted an intimate wedding and to my own research I understand to secure a venue, 99% of the time you need to go through a wedding planner. Hence, Jamie was hired. Just like most brides, I am incredibly thorough, budget conscious, and particular in our vision of the wedding. Since we reside across the country I tried to ease communication by sending emails in advance and being open minded to the process. This is when the miscommunication started- I won't go into every little detail but there were weeks that have gone by without a response (even after sending friendly reminders several times). One big miscommunication was the vision board, t... Read more

  • Jamie was extremely responsive to all of my needs throughout the course of wedding planning. I planned my wedding from across the country so all of our correspondence was via email. I used her catering service for food, beverages, and tableware. She gave me clear and a wide variety of choices to choose from. She sent menus, photos, diagrams, etc to help me figure things out. On the day of the wedding, she and her staff efficiently set everything up perfectly without me even noticing. I did not have to worry about anything during the wedding. Best of all, THE FOOD WAS AMAZING. Everything was so delicious and my wedding guests still talk about the food to this day. Lastly, Jamie was so kind when I met her, although very briefly. She is great at what she does and I am so happy I chose her as my caterer.

  • Sea Stars did a fantastic job on my reception meal & Chef Jamie had such wonderful options as well. Not only was she flexible when I threw around the idea of roasting a whole pig, but she had the most perfect recommendation (The Pig Wizard!) to complete the meal! Jamie also rolled with the punches when we ended up having to relocate our whole wedding 1.5 weeks before the date due to a wildfire in the area. She was extremely accommodating & coordinated moving her staff further north for our new venue. We ended up spending a bit more than we had initially budgeted, but the meal was unforgettable.
