  • As a wedding photographer, I work with a lot of different wedding planners, and they can truly make or break your experience. Kaci was an absolute DREAM and she ran everything so smoothly. She has an incredible personality that made working with her a joy! We had so much fun and she totally killed it. Her time management skills and organization are so on point. You must hire her!

  • Covid bride here! And let me begin by saying, boy are we glad we had Kaci and her XOXO team, because we certainly didn't think we'd be planning our wedding right before a PANDEMIC brought everything to a screeching halt! Before the pandemic, Kaci answered every question we could possibly think of with great advice and personal experience. We were already thrilled to have her on board, and felt we had made the right decision in choosing her to guide us through our special day. Once the pandemic hit, she was on top of getting all of our vendors rescheduled especially our venue who wasn't working with us at all. But Kaci persisted and finally got them to agree to the new date we wanted, and we were thrilled! On our wedding day, she started at 9am decorating the venue with all the decor we bought, stringing white paper picado flags (they looked stunning!) on the string lights in the reception area, prepping the bride and groom rooms, and coordinating with all the vendors. Her energy, opti... Read more

  • I am beyond thankful for Kaci and her team from XOXO! My husband and I had to reschedule our wedding 4x due to COVID and Kaci was nothing but supportive throughout the process. From our first meeting with Kaci to our last, she was funny, organized, flexible, thorough, and readily available to answer all our questions. You can immediately tell Kaci has a wealth of resources and venues/vendors she has worked with closely and finding amazing vendors was easy with her help! I can't imagine working with anyone better. When the wedding day finally came, everything went perfectly and I have no doubt it's because Kaci was making sure everything was on track. After working with Kaci for so long, we'll truly miss her and our meetings together! If you're looking to hire a wedding planner, I hope you look no further - Kaci and the team at XOXO are it!

  • XOXO Weddings was incredible from start to finish! I had the privilege to work with Kaci from XOXO Weddings. I interviewed a handful of coordinators, but Kaci was different. She worked with me not for me, which I appreciated being a bride who wanted my fairy tale wedding to come to life. I wanted to be apart of my wedding planning but be informed along the way. From day one Kaci was there to lead me through the process on how to plan a wedding and offer her expertise along the way. She was prompt and professional through the entire process. Kaci was able to see my vision and bring it to life. She worked with the many vendors we had to coordinate meeting and was able to make my life so easy. Even with COVID, Kaci was prompt and took care of all the hassle of changes. I could not have done this wedding without Kaci and XOXO Wedding staff! Kaci is truly special and I couldn’t be happier with having her plan our special day!! I HIGHLY recommend XOXO Weddings and Kaci!!!

    Amanda...thank you from the bottom of my heart! Through these tough times, I forgot how magically the actual wedding can be! Thank you for reminding me...you were STUNNING!!!! Love you!!

  • When my now husband proposed in 2019, my mom gave me two days to celebrate before she informed me that she had already found my wedding planner months ago and that her name was Kaci Mallat (now Kaci Johnson) from XOXO weddings. At first, I thought a wedding planner was an unnecessary luxury, an extravagance for the uberwealthy. A year and a half, a global pandemic, and a wedding later (and in the process of planning the post-COVID Part II), and I can tell you that I was wrong, and I will be thanking my mother for the rest of time (as one should) for finding Kaci for us. Kaci Johnson is a co-founder and owner of XOXO, so when I write about her personally, I write about XOXO as a company by default. Our initial meeting with Kaci was two hours in a local café. I am an educator and appreciate both organization and thoroughness, and Kaci checked off those boxes immediately with her binders, checklists, and seemingly boundless wealth of information on local vendors (not being from Calif...

  • XOXO Weddings and Kaci Johnson is absolutely the BEST. I had already followed them on Instagram for years, so when my husband proposed, I instantly reached out to them. From the first time I met Kaci I knew that we would work great together. She is so sweet, attentive, and creative. She listened to all my ideas and thoughts and helped me organize everything I needed. We actually had the majority of my vendors booked in just two months! Then Covid hit and everything changed. Kaci was there for me every step of the way. Since my original wedding was going to be indoors, she helped me cancel that and plan a whole new wedding that would take place outside. It was a very stressful time and she was always available to answer my questions, listen as I vented, and made sure my husband and I were able to get everything we wanted. THEN the week of our wedding, the caterer and venue cancelled due to Covid. I still wanted to find a way to make our wedding happen, even if it was going to be very... Read more

    Vivika... I am so happy that we got to make your day special!! I know things were different than originally planned, but I think the importance of your union was very BIGGER than planner! Xoxo loves you both to the moon and back:)

  • First off, this is long overdue. When a friend in my circle opted out of coordinating my wedding 3 months prior, I realize that the only resort was to hire someone who solely focuses on weddings professionally. Granted, this was during the height of the insane Covid-19 pandemic in Los Angeles County, where couples were canceling and rescheduling their weddings left and right. I met up with one of the co-owners Kaci through a Zoom meeting. As it would turn out, she lived in very close proximity to me, and even in the same city as my fiancé. I saw her various option plans that XOXO weddings offered, chatted with Kaci a bit, got a feel as to what could and could not be collaborated leading up to and on our wedding date, and how we can proceed to execute. Kaci referred to me numerous vendors, kept me centered, and really thought of every little detail. So, due to the pandemic everything really changed gears about a month prior. My parish still wasn’t open for indoor weddings. So, my... Read more

  • I am so glad we decided to use Kaci as our wedding coordinator. She has gone above and beyond my expectations. The first time we met I made my decision to book her, I didn't even need to talk to any other coordinators. You can tell how much Kaci believes in this job and the amount of love she puts into her work. Kaci has held my hand through meltdowns with covid. We had to postpone our wedding and I was going to lose my mind. Kaci took over EVERYTHING for me with ease and grace. I can not express enough how grateful I am for Kaci. I have tears in my eyes writing this, it's not often you find someone like this and she is truly a gem.

  • Hiring Alison from XOXO was hands down the #1 best decision I could have made for our wedding. I did countless research on various planners, and ended up with XOXO, and boy am I happy I did. Worth every penny and then some. Such a small blimp of money compared to the incredible amounts of value added to the most important day you will share with your partner, beyond having babies! Alison went above and beyond- always very responsive, patient, and fun and collaborative to communicate with. Before Covid, I was already thrilled with everything, and then layer on the complexity of planning a wedding during the C-19 world, and her expertise and skills were the gifts that kept on giving 10x over. She was always on top of what regulations we had or should comply with, and always communicated how we would need to adapt if needed. Everything leading up to the wedding was seamless- she was patient with me after many changes to vendors and me wanting to find the perfect fit for everyt... Read more

  • Allison was phenomenal! She was such a joy to work with and always available when we needed her help. She made us feel like we were her only client when I'm sure we weren't. Not only was she irreplaceable planning for the wedding (during the uncertainty with covid, no less) but the day of she was also exceptional. There were set backs through the morning with bridesmaids arriving late, or the bride's father not having his suit, and she took it in stride and kept everything moving flawlessly. We even had a wedding crasher that she handled with grace. ALLISON IS AMAZING.

  • XOXO made our day so smooth. We had heard horror stories from other couples about their weddings without a planner. They spent more time running around keeping everything together than enjoying their day. Not us. From start to finish XOXO made sure that everything was just handled. No stress on our part of contract negotiations, no terror of forgetting setup items, no questions on what was or was not needed. They provided the best possible experience we could have asked for from our wedding. Of special note were Melissa and Kaci. Melissa was our planner leading up to the event. One thing you don't know when you are planning a wedding is what all you don't know. Simple things like "did the venue put everything in the contract" and "who is in charge of picking up XYZ." Melissa was on it. From minute one she had our folder in hand and had us on the right track. Kaci was our coordinator the day of. This woman is pure efficiency, and not a single moment went by that everything wasn't just t... Read more

  • Working with XOXO Weddings was a dream. Kaci was immensely helpful throughout our planning process and no question was too big or small for her! She truly took the time to get to know what we were looking for and her coordination made our planning and our wedding the best day of our lives even when the groom had the flu last minute. I HIGHLY recommend working with XOXO for your wedding!

  • Seven weeks post wedding and one thing remains abundantly clear to me - there is no better wedding planning team than XOXO Weddings. The XOXO team stood out to me from the start. Four months following our engagement, my now husband and I were at a loss for where to hold our wedding celebration. Our budget was somewhat tight and we had a 200+ person guest list. Our families could not agree on a date or a location, but one thing was certain - we would not be hiring a wedding planner and it would be on me, the bride, to plan and execute. We got engaged in January 2019 and by the following April I was feeling fairly hopeless. Then I had an idea - why not get married at my husband's sprawling family home? Everyone was on board for this idea - it seemed budget friendly, could accommodate the extensive guest lists, and would be absolutely beautiful. Only problem, I had no idea how to plan an at-home wedding. I began researching wedding planners, figuring we could trade a venue fe... Read more

  • My wife and I run out of adjectives to describe what a wonderful experience we had with Tanya at XOXO Weddings. She was so cool and kind and reassuring and helpful. We hired her as a ‘month-of’ coordinator, so we met with her a couple times before, and I can’t tell you how amazing it was to hand things off to her the week of the wedding. And most important, of course, was the job she did on the day-of, helping us pull off the wedding without a hitch. She kept everything on track and we didn’t worry about a thing. Our wedding day was the opposite of stressful, and that was in large part thanks to her. So check out XOXO, and ask for Tanya Boyd - although I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if everyone there was also top-notch.

  • Tanya at XOXO was incredible!! My husband and I loved working with her and she made our whole wedding as smooth and fun as it could be! Her attention to detail in particular was what made it an awesome experience and I would 10000% recommend her and the XOXO team to anyone looking for a planner / coordinator! She was also so kind, understanding, and supportive and really walks along side throughout the whole process. :)
