"Valentina was literally one of the best decisions we could have ever made for our wedding.


She is professional, amazing at what she does and goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. [...] All of our family and friends kept coming up to us throughout the day and the day after to tell us how amazing our coordinator was. Vendors told me leading up to and after how much of a pleasure she was to work for. I cannot sing her praises enough. If you do one thing for yourself, it should be hiring Valentina as your coordinator. Thanks again Valentina for making our day perfect!"


"Valentina was amazing!! Our wedding day was flawless thanks to her."


She was organized, professional and proactive throughout the planning process.[...]She handled everything so as the bride I didn't worry at all about the little, last minute things that came up. She was professional and would always ask my opinion as well as give her helpful and useful suggestions. If you want your day to be stress-free and perfect I would definitely recommend hiring Valentina! Thank you for our dream wedding!"

"Where do I start with the wonderful amazing Valentina?! She was the human Xanax to my wedding planning."


I always felt like things were well taken care of. She was always 10 steps ahead of me."

Natalie & Mark

Valentina is a very special soul. From the minute my daughter and I met her we felt like she was part of our family. Her expertise and sensitivity to the wedding party was unmatched. She is extremely detailed oriented and conscientious regarding all aspects of planning to executing a remarkable wedding. My daughter’s wedding was a masterpiece. Valentina, thank you for taking such good care of us. We love you!!!! 

- Nancy (mother of the bride)

"Valentina is a dream come true. I don't even know how to express what a vital part of our day she was."


Our wedding day went without a hitch thanks to her. We were able to enjoy our day without any headaches, without any worries, and without any troubles. Of every purchase we made, of every vendor we had, of every teeny bit of the process, hiring Valentina was the smartest part of it all. V, you are a dear friend and I will always be grateful to you for making such an important day one of the best of my life. Thank you."

 "I don't even know where to begin. She was absolutely phenomenal.  Valentina was everything that we didn't even know we needed."


Contracting with her was hands down the best decision we made. She was communicative, professional, detail oriented and really personable. In the months leading up to the wedding, Valentina met with us several times to discuss vision and details. We did several walk-throughs of the venue together.  She really went above and beyond and took away all of the stress. If you are planning a wedding, do yourself a favor and work with Valentina."


"I'm honestly not certain we would have been able to pull off our wedding ceremony and dinner without the assistance and support of Valentina."


V''s work allowed Emily and me to focus on our day and not be distracted by, or worry about, the details of our ceremony and reception. Valentina worked closely with our musician, florist, photographer, and banquet coordinator to make sure our vision for our wedding was executed flawlessly. She made sure our event space was set up exactly to our vision and kept us on track - even ahead of schedule! Emily and I were able to enjoy the day and not think, for even a second, that things wouldn't go exactly as planned. Our guests even commented on the attention to detail that was apparent throughout the event - something we can entirely credit to V."

"She really made me feel relaxed on my wedding day and I trusted her to coordinate the event, so I didn’t feel I needed to be checking on everything and super stressed!"


From the very beginning, Valentina was very attentive, polite, and considerate. She scheduled in person and video meetings with us to go over the color scheme and design board for the wedding. She gave us great recommendations of vendors and great ideas for decorations. We had to postpone our wedding multiple times during the pandemic, but Valentina always kept in touch to check on how we were doing, even though she only needed to start working with us 2 months before the wedding day. Valentina was very professional, organized, and the service she provided was excellent."

"My background is in hospitality, so I tend to nitpick. This wasn't the case with V as she made sure everything was perfect for us on our special day as well as leading up to it."

She included my husband into everything, which was very special for him as the groom. In addition to it all, we had to reschedule 3 times due to the pandemic. V stayed with us through it all and we couldn't be more grateful for that. Thank you so much V for making our wedding day magical!"

"I even had my other vendors contact me after to complement me on hiring her. That she stood out from all the PLANNERS they have worked with in the past. My family absolutely loved her and she really cares about her clients."

We had originally set a date for sept of 2020 and had to cancel because of covid. After rescheduling everything Valentina helped us navigate through all the bumps in the road. She would check in with me just to make sure things were going well. She definitely was my calm in all the chaos. Our wedding day went off without a hitch. I will be using her for all my up coming events in the future."

"Valentina and her team made our big day feel like a breeze!"

Throughout our time working together, Valentina encouraged us, offered sound advice and helped to get us up and running on items that were delaying or confusing to us. All of our wedding party and family who met the team RAVED about them. We are so glad we had V on our wedding vendor team!"

"We had no idea how much work went into planning a wedding and she really diminished a lot of the stress with how prepared she was in every step of the planning process. She is very organized, detail oriented, and extremely knowledgeable in all things wedding planning."

Valentina went above and beyond our expectations!! We live in Sacramento and were completely dependent on her with planning and organizing our Wedding Day in only six months! We have very demanding jobs and Valentina was extremely flexible with zoom and email correspondence. We received multiple positive comments from all of our vendors who were very impressed with her and her work ethic. Valentina and her husband Ben made our wedding day absolutely perfect! There were no flaws thanks to her hard work and attention to detail. We would HIGHLY recommend Valentina to any couple planning a wedding. Our wedding couldn't have been any more special! Thank you so much, Valentina!!

"V is the most amazing wedding planner any bride or groom could ask for. She will listen to you, inspire you, fight for you, and do everything she can to plan not just a perfect wedding, but YOUR perfect wedding!"

She was by our side for over a year, when our plans had to get postponed due to the pandemic, and was able to keep any stress or anxiety at bay by regularly checking in with us and managing all of our vendors. My (now) husband and I both work full-time and have busy lives, so it was great to find someone who worked around our calendars but also kept everything right on schedule. V took the time to get to know us and always knew exactly how to bring our vision to life. I am beyond impressed by her expertise, taste and sense of style, her professionalism, and the way she manages to still make it a very personal experience, tailored to each couple. We will miss our regular check-ins with her but will be forever grateful to her for helping us throw the exact wedding we wanted. If you are planning a wedding, no matter how big or small, you want V in your corner. She is a wonderful person and amazing at what she does. I cannot recommend her enough. All the best to future couples, Mira & Tim

"Valentina is above and beyond what we could’ve dreamed of in a wedding planner. After interviewing 5 wedding planners and not connecting with anyone, we finally came across Valentina. As soon as we started talking to her, my husband and I knew immediately this was who we wanted to work with. She’s down to earth, easy to talk to, and we quickly felt like we could trust her completely. We utilized the full wedding planning and design package and worked with Valentina for over a year up until our big day."

She helped us refine our vision and determine what elements were most important to us, all while remaining respectful and conscientious of our budget. She has an extensive amount of connections with quality vendors and years of experience to guide us. She worked hard to first understand the feel we wanted to give our guests, and then offer suggestions and insight on how to achieve our vision. We had the most beautiful wedding and definitely would not have been able to pull it off without Valentina! She took away all the stress and work of wedding planning and made it a fun, enjoyable experience. You can easily see how much she enjoys her role and wants to bring her couple’s dream weddings to life! As much as we enjoyed the planning process with her, we equally appreciated her presence on the big day. She was able to calm our nerves, make sure we were having fun, and check in on us all while coordinating and making sure everything ran smoothly behind the scenes. We can’t imagine our wedding without V playing such an important role, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a detail-oriented, hard-working, and genuine wedding planner  - Danielle & Derrick

"Valentina was an absolute lifesaver throughout our wedding journey. Her meticulous attention to detail and incredible foresight ensured that every aspect of our special day was flawlessly executed. From the moment we enlisted her services, Valentina took the time to understand our vision, preferences, and concerns, turning our dreams into a beautifully orchestrated reality. What stood out the most was her proactive approach. Valentina seemed to anticipate our needs before we even voiced them."
She thought of everything - from the big decisions to the tiniest details. Whether it was coordinating with vendors, managing timelines, or seamlessly handling unforeseen circumstances, Valentina was on top of it all. Her ability to troubleshoot and problem-solve made our experience stress-free. On the wedding day itself, Valentina was a true star. Her calm demeanor and reassuring presence ensured that we could relax and savor every moment without worrying about a single thing. She flawlessly executed the timeline, orchestrated the transitions, and ensured every element of the day flowed seamlessly. What truly sets Valentina apart is not just her professionalism and expertise, but also her genuine care for her clients. She made us feel like we were her top priority and that our happiness was paramount. If you're searching for a wedding planner and coordinator who not only meets but exceeds every expectation, Valentina is an absolute gem. Her dedication, attention to detail, and commitment to perfection are unparalleled. Our wedding day was beyond magical, and we owe so much of that to Valentina's incredible work.
