WILLMUS WEDDINGS REVIEWS
Heather is an awesome wedding planner. She helps create the wedding of your dreams with the budget you have to work with. My mom and I kept telling her we don't know how you do it and her response was always that she loves wedding planning. So it really is something she is passionate and great at. She has the best organization skills I have ever seen. Which when you get down to the last days is truly a blessing. The day of she had a timeline from the moment we woke up until the end to make sure we stayed on track and were able to fit in all the things that were most important to us. The day of the wedding she is by your side helping with whatever you need and also handling situations that you and your hubby shouldn't be burdened with. Honestly Heather is a blessing. Heather and Christophe make a great wedding coordination/creation duo. Christophe does amazing videography and photography work. He made my husband and I the most beautiful wedding day video. He was so receptive to the requests I made on shots I wanted included. If I had to do it all over again I would hands down choose to work with Heather and Christophe every time.
We are super excited to give Christophe and Willmus Weddings 5 stars. We decided that we wanted a videographer at the last minute for our October wedding and Christophe was ready and willing (with a stellar attitude) to jump in. He sat in on a couple of calls with us and our wedding planner to get a feel for our style and then he took care of everything else! Since we were planning a destination wedding, it was really important to me to find someone who had the experience to take a few directions and run with it. Christophe did just that! Everything (including the contract/planning) was incredibly easy with Willmus Weddings! I wanted a video that was basic, but still really fun. I didn't want lots of weird or artsy shots and I didn't want the video to feel stiff. Christophe was PERFECT. He was fun to be around on the wedding day and put together a video that was above and beyond what I expected. When we were planning our wedding, I initially didn't think that I even wanted a video, but it is actually my favorite memento of the day and I am so so thankful that we picked Christophe. He captured so many little moments - it literally seems like he was able to see everything!
Mother of the bride: If you are looking for a videographer who is professional, organized, punctual, communicative, quick to respond, sensitive to making sure you get what you want in a video of your wedding day, and then in the end delivers quality work, look no further than Christophe from Willmus Weddings! In addition to possessing those fine qualities Christophe and his wife Heather are beyond charming, good-hearted, and down-to-earth. The moment I met them I felt like I'd known them for years. Christophe and Heather are very passionate about what they do and it shows in their work ethics. They pay attention to every little detail to ensure you receive a top-rate, high quality video that will provide a lifetime of memories. They go above and beyond to make sure you are not only happy with the results, but that you enjoy the process along the way. They were both very flexible and accommodating with everything we asked. It was very heartwarming to see Christophe's vision for the video come to life the second he put his eye to the lens on the day of the wedding. Both he and Heather worked tirelessly from the moment they arrived two hours before the wedding until after the final moment the bride and groom left the reception to ensure they got the footage necessary to create a beautiful video. And the review gets even better because Christophe edited all the footage and had the video ready within a month! Talk about service - it doesn't get much better than that! I can honestly say, I had no regrets in my decision to secure the amazing services of Christophe from Willmus Weddings for my daughter's wedding - Christophe and Heather are the best! Do yourself a favor and look no further!

LAVISH WEDDINGS REVIEWS
Christine and her team are simply the best wedding planning team in San Diego! Our first phone call consultation started in 2019, and because of covid, we kept postponing our wedding date until 2022. But Christine was always there supporting me and helping me get through the difficult time. I'm so glad that we chose Lavish Wedding to be part of the most important day in our lives. They are very experienced, responsive, and highly efficient. Cathlene, who is the lead assistant on our wedding day, took good care of us and stayed until the very end of that day. We want to give her our special thanks too. Our wedding day was exactly as magical and beautiful as we have ever pictured and even beyond! Like a lot of other clients said, Christine and her team have become not only the wedding planners but true friends in our life!
Christine, Gabriela, and the team at Lavish-Wed were fantastic to work with start to finish. They assisted with every detail and delivered a flawless December wedding bringing our daughter’s vision to life. Christine and Gabriela professionally planned and executed every aspect with our input and participation and never faltered even when unexpected obstacles surfaced. As an example, we had a contracted vendor cancel unexpectedly two months before the wedding. Lavish-Wed did not flinch and secured a new vendor that was outstanding. In addition to the personalized service throughout fourteen months of planning, they have excellent tools available to clients to assist with organizing ideas, budgets, guest lists, timelines, and more! They offer their collective knowledge and experience and take the necessary time to explain all the details so informed and timely decisions can be made. They made us feel as though our wedding was the only upcoming event they had, which I know is not accurate based upon all their exceptional reviews. If you are considering a wedding planner, Christine and her crew at Lavish Weddings are the team you want handling this most memorable life event.
I don't have enough good things to say about Christine, Gabriela and the entire Lavish team. They went above and beyond, and I truly feel like my partner and I had our dream wedding because of their dedication, planning and support. Christine helped us find almost all our vendors in California while we were still living in NYC, and as the wedding got closer, she and Gabriela came to our tastings, flower selection, decor meetings and more. They were so, so responsive to us over text and email, and their taste and design aesthetic was impeccable. On the day, our families and friends raved about them because everything went so smoothly. Whenever a question or need came up, it seemed like they had already taken care of it. It was the best vendor decision we made for the entire wedding, hands down. Thanks Christine, Gabriela and the entire team!

BLISS EVENTS REVIEWS
Rachel from Bliss Events is the most thorough, detailed, and thoughtful planner. She made my wedding at Estancia go flawlessly! She referred me to incredible vendors and completely ran the show leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day. She does not overlook ANY detail and takes notes on everything. She is so responsive and has amazing ideas and input on how to create an immaculate wedding. As soon as my family met Rachel at the ceremony rehearsal, they were all beyond impressed with her kindness, assertiveness, and level of detail. She already knew everyone's names and had everything so organized, even distributed handouts of the wedding weekend timeline to 13 family members and highlighted the parts that pertained to them. She confirmed every vendor, their arrival time, and made it so I did not have to lift a finger on my wedding day. At the end of the night, she even put all of the wedding keepsakes back in my room, even down to our escort cards, menus, and all the details. If you are looking for a wedding planner in San Diego, there is no one better than Rachel and her team. Look no further and book her immediately as she is worth every penny and her value is tremendous. She will be your most important wedding vendor and make everything go exactly as you requested. We love you Rachel, you are an incredibly hard working woman who gets so much done in a day all while having a kind and loving heart. I will be referring you to everyone I know getting married in San Diego, and I miss you already!!! Love, Natasha & Nick Shappell
We worked with Rachel from Bliss Events and had the best experience. Bliss Events has many packages with different levels of involvement to work with what you're looking for. We went with month of coordinator but never felt restricted in our communication with her. Working with Rachel felt like working with a close friend that just wanted to make sure the day went off seamlessly for our special day and that is exactly what her and her team delivered. Rachel is a professional and communication with her was always easy, clear, and efficient. She worked to manage all of our vendors and they commended her on the details and scheduling she provided. We had a fabulous day and owe so much of it to Rachel.
SO happy with Bliss Events. We had Rachel and we chose the day of coordinating package. Rachel takes over communication with vendors 6 weeks before which relieves a lot of stress! She was there from the very start though, recommending vendors and helping answer any questions we had. She was very organized and great throughout the whole process. Our wedding went very smoothly and perfectly because of Rachel and we are so happy we decided to choose Rachel and Bliss Events!!
