"Love starts as a feeling,
But to continue is a choice;
And I find myself choosing you
More and more every day.” 
― Justin Wetch

     what we do         


 4 Phases Process









Our comprehensive wedding planning encompasses a structured four-phase process

that ensures a seamless and unforgettable event:


The initial phase is dedicated to establishing a clear and realistic budget. We work closely with you to understand your financial preferences and priorities, allowing us to create a tailored plan that aligns with your vision while staying within your budgetary expectations.

Specifically designed for the busy couple and the couple who has no idea where to start and would like expert guidance from the beginning.
It covers literally everything about your wedding, from the vision and design to vendor selection, etiquette advisor, budgeting, management of the day of the wedding. We start of with finding out your story, your style, your personality and your vision and we guide you every step of the way. You won't have to worry about a thing, we will provide you the options, you select the one you like and we'll work with the vendor team to bring to life the wedding you have imagined.​ 

ADD ON VENUE SEARCH: for the couple that is planning a destination wedding and needs help securing the venue that checks all the boxes.


So you know you want your wedding to look beautiful.  You know you like that color.... But you also like the other color.... And you like that wooden farm table but you might want to have round tables with specialty tablecloth.....You know you want some upgrades but you don't know where to start.... "Who should I contact? Which company has that charger or that color of tablecloth? But I don't have time to take care of this. What's the price of this and that... I already feel overwhelmed".​ 

We will start with a consultation and I will guide you through the process that will be completed with the creation of a detailed design board for every single detail from color scheme, flowers, decor, tabletop, rentals, cake and much more.

  • Do you offer micro wedding planning?
    Yes we do! Please fill out the form on our website or send us an email at
  • I don't have a venue yet, can you help me find the perfect one?
    Yes, we do! We have a step-by-step process for couples that hire us for venue selection (on top of the full planning). Choosing a venue can be overwhelming, but with our support you will find the one with an easy, clear, stress-free process. We will work with you to establish your needs for the venue, your desired style and atmosphere, and your budget. Then, we will present you with a selection of venues that meet your criteria. We will also research the venues, contact them, and arrange for you to tour them (in person or virtually if you are not local). Once you have identified the perfect venue, we will help you to negotiate the best deal.
  • Do we have to work with the vendors you recommend?
    We have an extensive list of vendors that we have worked with, and we are always open to working with new, professional vendors. If you don't have any vendors in mind, don't worry - we have suggestions that will fit your unique event.
  • How many weddings do you plan per year?
    We typically plan a maximum of 12-15 weddings per year. As a boutique wedding planning company, we limit the amount of clients we accept each year in order to ensure a high level of attention and quality service for each and every one of our couples.
  • Where are you based?
    Valentina Weddings & Events is based in North County San Diego but I often travel to Lake Como, my hometown and the place I lived for almost 30 years.
  • When should we hire a planner?
    Couples should consider hiring a wedding planner as soon as they begin the wedding planning process. Ideally, the earlier, the better! Hiring a wedding planner early on allows you to benefit from our expertise throughout the entire planning journey. A wedding planner can assist with budgeting, venue selection, vendor recommendations, and overall event design, and much more
  • Will we be working with you or another team member?
    You will always be working with me from beginning to end. I will be the one meeting you, corresponding with you, and executing your wedding. You will be introduced to my assistants on the wedding day as they will be part of the executing team.
  • Do you only plan weddings?
    No, we plan a wide variety of events, from dinner soirees to social events for private and for companies. Visit our "other events" page!
