Chino Hills, CA
Wedding and event planning, custom invitations and stationery
I am a British planner residing in Chino Hills California. I do all things wedding. I'm Vanessa and I love to assist couples on their wedding planning journey. My warm and friendly approach has won me many clients and much recommendation from many lovely brides. It's all about providing great service which is affordable and transparent. I don't have a policy of quoting our services on a % of your wedding budget. I had a UK wedding showroom from 2011-2016 with hundreds of happy clients who would come and see us from a wide geography within the UK. In the USA I offer the whole package or just a little help as and when you need it and uniquely I ALSO work by the hour on projects for couples. I have a friendly approach to wedding planning with no snobbery, it's all about creating a perfect day for you, assisting you and giving you good information so that you can make informed choices.
Some of my clients drop by to gain advice and get focus or gain my help to try and pin down what venue they should be booking, other clients have help with styling and creating items such as cakes and stationery and most have many questions about budgeting which we can give clear and concise answers to. I've been working in marketing and events for over 15 years and have a really upbeat personality, there's always a way to build your day successfully and I try and find the right approach for each client. Not all weddings are the same and no 2 clients are the same so I pride myself on being able to give you a personalised service.
On the Day Coordination (and it is much more than just turning up on the day)
'Get me on track' single session (up to 3 hours of help on anything from venue, budget and styling to suits and song choices)
Assistance by the hour (use as you wish, send out invites and get back RSVPs) My wedding planning help by the hour is a really popular choice or I offer just a one off session to get you started.
Full Wedding Planning Assistance (Fixed rate or set by hourly packages of 10 or 20 hours at a time)
Venue Visiting packages (have a day where we come with our venue checklists and observations)
Dear Vanessa, A huge 'thank you' for all your advice and support over the last few months. You were a real "life line" at a time when I was definitely felling 'out of control' and 'overwhelmed' by everything we had to still organise for the wedding. Your expertise was invaluable - I don't think we had fully grasped the scale of the project, not having done anything like it before! Thank you so much for introducing us to Cassie as well - she was so helpful with Susie's dress, tiara and coordinating everything. You have a brilliant business which I know will be tremendously successful. A massive thank you for all your help. Angie and Chris

We just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for all of your recommendations, Sharon for the seating plan ad carol for our wedding rings and the bridesmaid gifts. Everything turned out so perfectly and we wanted to thank people that played a part in it. Kind Regards Heather and Tim

To Vanessa, Thanks for all your help with the wedding. We couldn't have got so much sorted without you. Please find a little something to eat and drink from us by way of thanks. Love Charlene and James
