  • Amanda was my full time wedding coordinator and she did an outstanding job and impressed my entire family. Having her along the way helped the whole process be a million times less stressful. Amanda has everything organized for you, helps you think and decide of all the little decisions you would normally never think of. She really helped accommodate make my day so personalized and special. She handles everything with such professionalism and manages everything so well, that I did not have to worry or stress about one thing on my wedding day. I could not recommend her and her team enough. Above and beyond service and worth every penny for your special day.

  • OMG! What can I say about Sanya and Amanda that hasn’t been said before? They are seriously THE MOST professional, talented, organized, detail oriented and genuine wedding planners you will ever meet! They saved me from going crazy from all the stress of wedding planning! From the very beginning, while searching for a venue, they were so helpful and showed me 3 of their estates. All their venues are gorgeous! I fell in love with the VIP Mansion (I actually cried when I saw it in person) and from that point on, they took care of everything, like literally every detail, stuff I didn’t even know was a thing! LOL. They are truly a dream team and made the whole experience so much fun and enjoyable. But the moment of truth: the actual wedding day turned out so perfectly, even though everyone told me that was impossible! All my guests were so impressed and still tell me to this day that it was the best wedding they ever attended! That is all my husband and I ever wanted: for our ... Read more

  • Amanda and Sanya made our son's wedding ofour lives. Our families and friends can't stop talking about it (our families in Miami keep asking us to "send more pictures, send more pictures"). The support and "can do" attitude of Amanda and Sanya and their staff was truly amazing - no words can describe seeing the joy in our son and his new wife's faces when the event was over and that was mainly due to Amanda, Sanya and their staff (I don't the gentleman's name who was on the floor helping us out (we called him the "Secret Service Agent" because he was always talking into his sleeve) but he was truly amazing and accommodating to all our requests - please pass on our thanks to him as well. Even something as minor as Amanda getting us band aids within, literally, moments of us asking was appreciated (FYI - it was for one of our family members whose high heels were killing her). Thank you for making this the event of our lifetime!! Sincerely, Albert Valdes & Maria Serret

    Aww thank you so much for your sweet review! It isn't often we get reviews from the parents of the groom so we truly appreciate you taking the time to do this. 4 months have passed since Alex & Steph's wedding and we still think of your sweet family often - you were so caring, considerate and genuine and it is rare to meet such incredible people that make a lasting impression! The fact that Maria had the most amazing taste and planning skills was a huge bonus, hehe, but we will seriously never forget your kindness! And that saxophone bridal entrance (and gorgeous florals) will go down in history as the most original! Our staff is still talking about it! Thank you for acknowledging our hard working team (I was sure to pass on your compliments to Sean and his security team) as it's usually a thankless job for them. May this New Year and New Decade bring your beautiful family lots of joy, great health, prosperity and maybe even some grandkids?! Hehe ;-) XOXO, Sanya, Amanda & the VIP Team

  • I can’t believe it’s already been 6 months since my wedding day but I often think back and honestly can’t imagine doing it all without Sanya and her amazing team! Sanya was such an integral part of our wedding and helped take all the stress out of wedding planning. So many friends ask how we managed to plan the whole wedding in such a short time (5 months) and it’s only because of Sanya that we were able to get everything done without any stress. Wish we could do it all over again! :) Thank you!!

    Oh Danielle - wish we could do it all over again too, but you better not plan another wedding ever again! LOL. I know I have made friends for life in you and Corey and am super excited for your news and your expanding family - yay! 2020 is going to be the most amazing year for you guys! Huge congrats and thank you for allowing me the privilege of planning your Big Day! XOXO, Sanya & the VIP Team

  • Wow, wow, wow I can not say enough about this company! My fiance and I got engaged and we knew right away we wanted to get married and quickly! I always had the dream of getting married in May and when we got engaged in January I was worried it couldn't be done. Well I was waaayy wrong. Amanda and Sanya are THE best wedding planners in the business. They quickly set up all my vendor apts, made the planning process enjoyable and smooth and my wedding day was absolutely flawless! I can not thank you both enough for making my wedding dream come true...all of my guests are still talking about the VIP Mansion today and how dreamy our venue was. We love you guys!!! Love Payton and Michael

  • What can we say… Words cannot express the gratitude we have for Sanya and her VIP wedding crew. We were married in March this year, and to this day our relatives and friends can’t stop talking about it! It was definitely a day to remember, but most importantly a day that I remember not having to stress… At all! It’s hard to know exactly what goes into pulling off a wedding that has so many elements to it, as our wedding planner took care of everything...but I can say this, if you choose Sanya and one of her awesome turn key venues, you too will never know! I have since recommend this venue and planners to several other friends in our crew, and I’m happy to say that two of our closest friends are now getting married in July at one of VIP’s other locations in Laguna.

    You have no idea how much your words mean to us and how grateful we are that you spoke so highly of our team! And now your friends are having their wedding with us this year! I guess they got to see us "in action" already but they never would have booked unless you vouched for us about your entire wedding planning process. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at their wedding! Woo hoo! XOXO, Sanya & the VIP Team

  • Working with Amanda and the VIP Team has been nothing but amazing! When my fiancé and I were starting to look at venues we went to all the “top” venues in OC. Once we inquired, we met Amanda—we instantly knew this had to be our wedding coordinator no matter what! Her passion for what she does is unmatched and you can feel it right away. She made us feel so comfortable with every decision, wecouldn’t believe it! The moment we stepped into the VIP Mansion, we had to book it... this is our dream venue!! We even booked it the same day we toured! I know our wedding will be the most amazing day.. we are counting down the days and can’t wait to have the most memorable day shared with our family and friends. All thanks to VIP Events and Weddings! —Fatima

  • How is it possible that one of the most important days of your life that's had countless details planned and communicated across multiple vendors goes off without a hitch? This incredible event company takes so much care, is so capable, and truly listens to make your day go exactly how you want it to. I got married at the VIP Mansion last month, and friends/family still compliment me on how well executed and beautiful our wedding was. My high expectations were honestly blown away and it couldn't have gone better. To start, Amanda Burke is organized, responsive, and has such a positive attitude toward any request or question. Also, most of the vendors work together often, which makes things go very smoothly. They each did such a great job - florals/decor were so beautiful, and the caterer served amazing food - some of my pickiest guests went out of their way to compliment how delicious it was. I read other reviews here and really can't believe I wasn't the only well-executed eve... Read more

    Dear Sheila (your name will always make me smile and you know why), thank you so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive and incredible review! We truly can't thank you enough! It makes my heart sing to hear such wonderful feedback for Amanda (we really lucked out when she joined our team) and for all the vendors that we worked so hard to find and are blessed to get to work with. Your wedding party, families and friends were such a joy to meet and it was a pleasure to help them out with any requests they had. Amanda misses you tons but she'll see you soon to return your veil, hehe. :) Thank you again and wishing you all the best and lots of little ones! Warm hugs, Sanya & the VIP Team

  • Everyone that knows me expected me to turn into a full Bridezilla at some point but thanks to Sanya and VIP I actually never got stressed and quite enjoyed my wedding planning! I only wish it didn’t go so fast and that I could relive my perfect wedding day all over again! I fell in love with the VIP Mansion the moment I laid my eyes on that giant chandelier and working with Sanya was a dream come true! If you want someone who is super experienced and a true pro, but at the same time, genuine and passionate about her job, then Sanya is your gal! I can’t thank you enough for all the details (don’t think I didn’t notice and appreciate them) and making sure everything went without a hitch! Loved everything about VIP and their vendors!

    Thanks for not turning into a Bridezilla Abby, lol, but no worries - you were always calm and sweet and we absolutely loved helping you and Mike plan your Big Day! Huge congrats and good luck with your job and house move - you got it! The VIP Team

  • I had the wedding of my dreams thanks to the hard work of Sanya Strelec and her VIP Team! From the first moment I contacted VIP, while searching for venues, until the day of my wedding, they made the whole process effortless, fun and memorable! The private estate was perfect for our wedding as we were able to make it our own by fully customizing every single detail. Sanya was always responsive and easy to talk to and managed to over deliver in all aspects. Our guests are still giving us compliments on how beautiful and perfect everything turned out. The food was incredible, we loved our flowers and were very happy with all the vendors VIP provided. With Sanya and her team, you’ll be in great hands and can actually relax and enjoy your wedding planning and the day of! Excellent job and I highly recommend them!

    Aww, thank you so much Sharon! You are making me blush! And huge congrats on the BABY news! Woo hoo! We look forward to staying in touch and wish you all the best! Sanya and the VIP Team

  • They get 10 out of 5 stars from me! Not only does VIP have the most amazing venues to choose from in So Cal, but they will truly care about you and help you every step of the way with your entire wedding planning! Sanya and Amanda put me at ease right away and they made sure I stayed on track with my planning (they are perfect for a busy couple who simply can’t put their lives on hold in order to plan their wedding) and not a single item was overlooked. They were professional, friendly, well organized and had the best recommendations and vendors (trust me and stick with all the vendors they recommend as they have a ton of experience here). I just can’t say enough about VIP and their talented hard working team! I’m still on cloud 9 and my Wedding Day was absolutely perfect in every way! Thank you VIP for making my day magical and unforgettable!

    You guys are too sweet with your rave reviews! We are still obsessed with your gorgeous wedding and that dress - WOW! We are beyond lucky to have had you as clients and now: friends for life! Thank you for making us fall in love with our job all over again! :) Hugs, the VIP Team

  • My wedding day was 100 % perfect and it is mostly thanks to the amazing, talented, dedicated and passionate wedding planner Sanya Strelec and her amazing staff and vendors! She was with me every step of the way and I truly enjoyed not just my wedding day but also the whole planning process. You cannot go wrong if you book one of their beautiful Estates and have VIP execute your wedding!

  • VIP Events and Weddings and the VIP Mansion was more than I could ever dream of! I highly recommend the VIP Mansion. From the very beginning stages Amanda Burke (cooridnator) and her entire team were so amazing! They did everything from showing me the venue to planning all of the vendor apts and making my dream day a day I will remember for the rest of my life (the best part is that it was all inclusive..made my job so much easier as a new bride not knowing anything). Amanda was honestly so amazing and really made my whole planning and wedding expirence that much more enjoyable. Everything was so easy and stress free and she was always there to answer my phone calls and really went above and beyond to make sure my wedding was exactly how I wanted it. Her and all the vendors were so amazing and professional. My now husband ;) and I never felt pressured or uncomfortable and you can tell they genuinely cared about us and how we felt the entire way. I just got back our photos of the weddin... Read more

  • Ever since our "VIP" wedding, my husband and I have been wishing we could relive the night over and over again! First of all, all their venues are amazingly beautiful! Working with VIP (especially our coordinator, Sanya) was such a delightful experience. I found myself wondering when the stress of wedding planning was going to hit me but it never did thanks to all the work that Sanya does behind the scenes. VIP makes planning such a breeze because they already come with carefully curated, awesome vendors (catering, cake, florals, DJ/MC). Sanya helped us coordinate all the meetings - all we had to do was show up and tell them what we liked! Throughout the whole process Sanya gave us great suggestions and helped us stay within budget. Our wedding was everything we wished for and more!! Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    Thank you so much for your sweet review Lillian and Jonathan! We miss you already and can't wait to see your wedding photos (you really had a dream team on your Big Day). We'll definitely stay in touch, especially since we're so close to Irvine. Hope you're settling into your new place (still can't believe you MOVED during your wedding week, lol) and working on expanding your sweet beautiful family soon! ;-) Love, Sanya and the VIP Team
