  • I worked with Simone (coordinator) and Liz (design). We wanted an intimate, very non traditional wedding. They were both so wonderful to work with! Our wedding turned out better than we envisioned, and ON BUDGET. Liz made our wedding look absolutely gorgeous, and had fantastic creative ideas. Simone made the planning process so easy. She helped us find our venue and gave great recommendations for our other vendors. Simone was fantastic on the day of, everything ran seamlessly. We were able to enjoy our day without any stress or worries! Overall, a great experience, our wedding would not have been the same without them! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

  • Our wedding was on 11/9/19. We chose Liz and Wink Weddings about 16 months prior to our wedding. Above hearing about them on WeddingWire and the Knot, we found them in bride magazines as well. I loved how timeless her weddings look and how she incorporates personal elements into each wedding- making them unique for every couple. We love how easy going Liz was and how she made every effort to stay in our budget and make our day exactly what we wanted. She has exceptional recommendations for venues and vendors. We were able to connect with some of the best venues and vendors and were more than happy with her recommendations of photographers, DJ's, rental equipment, hair stylist and makeup artists, wedding invitations & save the date companies, and bridal dresses/ attire. Her knowledge of weddings and networking is incredible, having more than 10 years experience. She was available for phone chats personally reaching out and making sure I was okay through the whole process. We love WINK a... Read more

  • If you're considering using Wink! to plan your next event, you have made the absolute best decision. Liz, Layne, and their entire team are incredible. It's like planning your wedding with you best friend, but your friend happens to be a magical wizard. I know that sounds silly, but they truly take your ideas and bring them to life in a way that really is magical. They are there with you every step of the way. From curating an idea or theme for your event, to picking out the tiniest of details, to juggling opinions of many different and sometimes difficult family members. They really do it all. I couldn't have imagined a more professional, caring, and fun team of people to work with. They were always one step ahead of us. Every time I had I question, they had an answer before I even had time to ask it. I can't say enough about how amazing these ladies are. They gave us the wedding of our dreams. We walked away as Mr. & Mrs. and even made two new lifelong friends along the way. Thanks Li... Read more

  • Liz, Layne and the entire Wink team (which we affectionately begain referring to as the Minions of Liz), created a day for us that was simultaneously relaxing enough for us to enjoy and be in the moment, over-the-top enough for all of our guests to have the experience of a lifetime, and yet warm, familial and unpretentious enough for it to feel like us. I am not a bride who grew up dreaming about my wedding. Yet somehow they managed to translate what was in my brain...when I didn't even know was in my brain. They found ways for us to shine - and not only not laughing at us when we wanted to do a sprinkle cake at a black tie affair, or tell us we were crazy when we said we were doing hand written notes - but supporting us and finding a way to help us do everything we wanted to do. All I know is that I wouldn't want to redo my wedding - solely for the fact that I dont think it could ever go any better :)

  • My husband and I had a GREAT experience working with WINK! Weddings (we worked with Stacy, Amanda, and Emily from the Northern California branch). Our wedding was at my husband's grandparents' house, and since it was not a traditional venue, we relied on our team at WINK! to ensure everything we needed was in place (rentals, transportation, restrooms...everything!). Even though Stacy, our original planner, moved to Texas, she was still very present in the organization and getting Amanda and Emily up to speed, who flawlessly executed the rehearsal and day of. The team took care of any bumps in the road day-of, and I was blissfully unaware - which is how it should be! We had a fantastic wedding, thank you WINK!!!!

  • We worked with Jenn and she was just the best! I would recommend her in a heartbeat!! Even if you think you have it altogether (I consider myself very organized), it's the most amazing thing to be able to hand over your work to someone you trust & just experience every moment of your wedding! Leading Up to the Wedding: She was always available via phone and email - so responsive! She always shared tips and suggestions while keeping our priorities, desires and budget top of mind. In the end, she recommended our DJ, venue & rehearsal luncheon location - all of which we were thrilled with! We also used Wink! for the a design session where Carolyn met with us to understand what we're looking for and created vision boards for us to share with our vendors. This was such a wonderful way to collect our ideas and get a consistent vision early on. It made planning and decisions much easier as time went along. Rehearsal: She was thorough yet efficient. Everyone knew what to expect and we al... Read more

  • Simply said, our wedding would not have happened without Stacy. I was a complete DIY bride on an extremely small budget and thought surely that would mean that I'd have to be at my venue on my wedding day putting everything together at the last minute...nope. With Stacy at my side, all I had to do was show up on our special day! I honestly did not think this would be possible given our budget constraints, but she made it happen. Actually, I miss her! It's so funny...she was such an integral part of our lives for such a special occasion and you build this bond; now I feel like I've lost a friend! What Stacy accomplished is nothing less than astounding. First, at our initial meeting she told me that everything would come together just perfectly and I believed her! She then took over all of my vendor relations which I'd been juggling for a couple of months...what a relief that was! Then, she asked if "I'd mind" if she popped into our rehearsal! Mind?! She organized the rehearsal and had... Read more

  • I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer Williger for my wedding which took place last weekend (11/15) at the Ace hotel in PS. Jennifer is the best. Leading up to the wedding, she responded to emails quickly and thoroughly and the things that she thought of were exactly the reason why I hired a planner. So many details to think of! My goal was to not have much to do on the day of the wedding except enjoy myself and Jenn made this possible. She handled everything to do with the venue to ensure that we had a great time. There were a couple of hiccups (that were the Ace's fault, not Jenn's) and she dealt with it to make things right. She continues to follow up with me post-wedding which is obviously going above and beyond what she was paid to do. Professional, organized, on top of everything and easy to work with. And she works like she gives a shit! Clearly loves her job. Thanks to Wink and Jenn! xo Kathryn Peck

  • Stacy and her team at WinkWed are amazing and such a pleasure to work with! Even our vendors mentioned how great it was to work with her. Stacy was always there to calm me down and provide great advice whenever wedding planning threw me a curveball. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she took over the job of confirming with all our vendors, handling minute details regarding setup, and creating the master timeline for our event. She is incredibly thorough and detail-oriented. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. She made sure our event was seamless and perfectly executed according to our vision.

  • My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth at WINK! She was amazing and so was her team. Leading up to our wedding she was prompt with emails and knew just what to say to calm my nerves. Her ideas were great and she knew exactly what I wanted. Through the process and even on the day I worried that things wouldn’t go or look as planned but I sneaked into the ballroom before our guest and I was so happy with everything. Liz and her team really brought my vision to life. We were so glad and relieved that they were there for us every step of the way! I know it wasn’t easy with my huge guest list but the girls at WINK made it look like a piece of cake! I would definitely recommend them to our friends and family!

  • Hiring Stacy via WINK! Weddings was without a doubt the best decision we could have made in planning our wedding party. Not only is Stacy a lovely, dear person to be around, she went above and beyond to guide me through the planning process and absolutely exceeded our expectations in executing a stellar event that our friends and family can't stop talking about. There when I needed her, not pushy when I didn't, and in general an absolute joy to work with. WINK!'s pricing is very, very reasonable as well. Highly recommend!

  • I have nothing but awesome things to say about Elizabeth Vining/WINK Weddings in general! We planned our wedding in Malibu from Portland, and we couldn't have done it without her. From helping us find the best vendors in our budget, to answering my random-question emails, to wrangling my family and our wedding party (which is not unlike herding cats)... Liz did it all. She's like a wedding super hero! We hired her last October and we worked together for almost a year before the wedding. From our first Skype meeting Liz was fun, friendly, organized and professional, and worked with us to help us put together a beautiful wedding that represented us perfectly. Thanks to her, our day was totally stress free. If anything went wrong on the day of I never even knew or had to worry about it because she had it handled! So again, thank you thank you for all your hard work!!

  • "You're engaged! Congratulations! Here, call WINK! Weddings. Ask for Liz, Tayler, and Mary Laura." I think I've had this conversation a dozen times since working with WINK! All three of these wonderful women were outstanding and made our wedding more than we could have dreamed! The timeline they created was excellent and kept everything moving without feeling rushed. It was detailed and masterful, so you know nothing will be forgotten or overlooked. Tayler and Mary Laura were phenomenal stepping in last minute to be our day of coordinators. Mary Laura is sweet, genuine, and beyond patient and Talyer is enthusiastic, thoughtful, and attentive. Having them there was such a relief knowing that all the details my husband and I couldn't oversee would be artfully executed. They communicated with our vendors throughout the day and even saw us off at the end of the evening. I am also so grateful they helped coordinate the surprise shadow puppet show I performed for my guests and husband at... Read more

  • My husband and I partnered with Liz and Nancy to help us with our wedding earlier this year. We were originally contracted to work with Kiara (a then Associate Planner), but she accepted another job about 8ish months out from our wedding date. Liz was accommodating and signed on to work with us for no additional cost, which I was thrilled about because she was who I originally met. As someone who works in a creative field and who is always teaming up with a creative partner to bring our ideas to life, I think it makes so much sense to have a Design/Manager team work on your wedding (though they both have a hand in everything, I'm sure). I was super conscious of our budget. I was very upfront with the team that we really didn't have any wiggle room so couldn't go over. BUT, I wanted to make sure nothing looked/felt/tasted cheap and that guests didn't feel like we were skimping on anything. Not an easy charge. Liz and team did a wonderful job keeping us on budget and nailed the intimate,... Read more

  • If you are thinking of using Wink! for your next event, I would seriously reconsider. There is no shortage of qualified planners in the industry, so please don't subject yourself to Wink. I am more than happy to share more of my experience in detail- please message me if you have further questions. There is a limit on how much you can write on here so please refer to my review on Yelp at : http://www.yelp.com/biz/wink-weddings-los-angeles-2

    responded with the following comments.

    This review reflects the customer's interaction with the former owner of WINK! It does not reflect the methods of the new owner, Elizabeth, who purchased the company following this exchange. We genuinely wish Nancy and her husband a happy and fulfilling marriage. At WINK!, we do our very best to provide each client with an amazing experience while on their way to the best day ever, but sometimes the match between planner and couple isn't alway right. I'm pleased that Nancy and her fiancé highlighted that our planner Amanda was not the reason for the termination of services. As for the actions of the former owner, all I can say is I'm truly sorry for the experience that this couple had. As the new owner, I have reached out personally to offer my apologies but have not heard back. I don't blame them, but my heart does hurt imagining the frustration they suffered over what should have been the most exciting day of their lives. Again, we wish them nothing but the best and a lifetime of love and happiness.
