Vanessa is the best of the bests!
We have seen many wedding planners on various occasions, Vanessa is unique in terms of being detail, going far and beyond the contract. That is the most impressive part of her service. She knows her field, keep every small detail in records and communications - you should be absolutely worry free on the day of event. I will highly recommend her for any such event.
The Best Coordinator Around!
Vanessa is the best by a mile! She was incredibly helpful and super detailed before the actual wedding, but was also kind and patient the day of. She was incredibly available ahead of time, responding promptly to any questions we had. And the templates she sent out were a life-saver. She thought of all of the things we could never have imagined. And not surprising, on the actual day she ran the whole show with the panache of an orchestra conductor. And don't get me started on her team! Kellie and Crystal felt like an extension of Vanessa, always anticipating needs and solving any problems that arose. They executed the vision we had far better than we could have hoped for. Stop looking at other coordinators and hire Vanessa already!
Being a film producer for over 25 years and having strong organizational skills it seemed to me that organizing a wedding is like producing a film. So, I started producing my wedding – which was to be the best wedding anyone of my guests would have ever experienced. Like any bride I wanted my absolute dream wedding. It was to be organized to the smallest detail, glamorously designed, with elegant invitations, only the best china, the best chairs, tables, furniture’s, linens, amazing flowers, and so forth. It was planned as the most elegant, classy, dreamlike wedding anyone could ever imagine. As I started to put the pieces together I realized, this is much more than I could handle. There was no way I could do this alone. Even for me a producer of Hollywood films, this became just too much. I interviewed various wedding planners, but didn’t really feel anyone of them had a strong handling on my extravaganza of a wedding. Until Vanessa came along. I was the luckiest bride on earth to have met Vanessa. Not only did she understand my extravagant vision perfectly, had the patience for my at times quite extraordinary wishes and my high quality demands, but she also kept me save from making mistakes. She is one of the most organized people I have met. And, for me to say this, it means something. I’m German – I’m born with the organization and efficiency gene. Vanessa was sweet, yet forceful. Charming, yet determined. A problem solver galore – always solutions ready to apply. And most important: Always smiling and always available for me. Any bride who wants their dream wedding realized would be in very good hands with Vanessa. She made my dream wedding come true and people are still speaking about my wedding with the highest compliments … even now weeks after the event.
Vanessa was an absolute Godsend! I contacted her for day of coordination about 1.5 months before the wedding and honestly I wish I had contacted her earlier and had her plan the entire wedding! I had a Hindu wedding ceremony and Vanessa was very knowledgeable about all the rituals that are involved. The moment I had my first meeting with Vanessa I was able to let go of any stress related to the wedding day because she completely took over. She created a detailed timeline and contacted all my vendors to make sure everyone was on top of everything. We also had some issues with the hotel venue changing management a couple weeks before the wedding and I know this would have been much more stressful if I didn’t have Vanessa to look through the contracts and so forth. I also really appreciated how quickly Vanessa responded to my emails and texts. Honestly you can’t go wrong with hiring Vanessa and her team! They were all a pleasure to work with and everything went very smoothly on the day of my wedding (we were actually on schedule for everything, which says a lot for an indian wedding). Thank you Vanessa for EVERYTHING!
Amazing, amazing, and did I forget...AMAZING!!!
Vanessa is, by far, the best wedding planner Los Angeles has to offer. Brides, if you use Vanessa, you will enjoy your wedding. Now almost 2 months later, I'm still receiving phone calls from friends and family requesting her contact information. Her execution was flawless and I didn't have to worry about anything. Before meeting her, I was confident that I could do without a planner but boy was I wrong. With 300+ guests, I was out of my mind. The closer it got, the more I realized that I couldn't do it on my own.
I'm so happy I met with Vanessa. Shortly after our first meeting, I was certain that I made the right choice by hiring her. She handled everything with ease and took the burden of confirming contracts and the date and time with all my vendors.
Vanessa and her team did an absolutely FANTASTIC job with our wedding! We were continually impressed by her promptness, by her professionalism, by her familiarity with the official rituals and unofficial secrets of Indian / Hindu weddings, and by her willingness to literally go the extra mile for us in terms of buying small items on our behalf for subsequent reimbursement because Los Angeles was technically a 'destination wedding' for both of us. We were shocked when the entirety of wedding day, even the baraat entrance on a horse, actually ran ahead of schedule thanks to her hard work with coordinating everything. We owe her and her team so so much for making our wedding day so perfect!
Vanessa was our coordinator and she was honestly one of the best things that happened to us ;) She was very professional, quick to respond to every request, email, phone call. Vanessa is very organized and has a great system in place.
What makes Vanessa stand out from the rest of the wedding coordinators is her extensive experience with international (multicultural) weddings. She understands and is well aware of other cultures' customs and traditions.
We would recommend Vanessa's services to anyone in a heartbeat!
My name is Jackie and I was a bride to be a few weeks ago and I am also a party Planner myself. But one thing I know is that I couldn't of done this without Vanessa and her teams help. I know that a budget for a wedding might get tight at one point but I can guarantee you that Best dream weddings is worth every single penny. Vanessa was a great help she kept in contact with all of our vendors and reviewed all of their contracts, she did a walk-through at the venue at church and was always keeping me informed of everything. the day of coordination was phenomenal we had a venue with 300 guest and Vanessa and her team were able to help all of our guest get seated and cover other details that I had asked for. Vanessa kept both my husband and myself on schedule all day. As a bride I can tell you that Best dream weddings is a stress relief.
Vanessa was awesome! She is very professional and took care of all our needs! I was very detailed with how I wanted my wedding decor and timeline to run and she had it on the nose. Everything she said would happen was delivered. Her assistants were super friendly and took care of everything. I was very calm as she had my complete trust.
I was very pleased that she was very concerned that our venue would return our full security deposit, she made sure that the rest of the vendors were doing their jobs and had everything under control. During and at the end of our event, I didn't have to lift a finger, no one asked me for anything, so that shows what a great coordinator she is!!! Our gifts were packed up, our props were packed up, and we had the time of our lives!
Thank you Vanessa! You were fantastic!
I was referred to Best Dream Weddings by a friend who used them. Vanessa was not only so organized and knowledgeable, but also she was a huge comfort and advocate during this very stressful and exciting time. She went to bat for me with the venue, and confirmed everything for our special day with the vendors. She had great wedding advice, thought of things I had not thought of, and responded to my multiple texts and emails always right away. I would love to hire her again, but as I am planning on being married for a very long time, I am sad I will not be able to. I will recommend her to all of my friends. Also, her assistants she had the day of were all on point and our day was perfect. I didn't have to worry about, or think about anything. This was the easiest vendor to work with!
