Love Note from Tina & Jared {The Garty Pavilion Wedding}

I absolutely adored working with Tina & Jared on their wedding.  Tina and I always had a great time together, and I loved that she trusted on all apsects of the wedding.  Her wedding was absolutely breathtaking and is the essence of San Diego! (The full post of her wedding is coming soon)  I received this sweet note from them the other day and it just melted my heart! Thank you Tina & Jared! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!



“Hi Wynn,

I wanted to send you thanks for making our wedding dreams come to life.  We enjoyed every piece and step of the way.  Every girl dreams of this particular day, and we were blessed to have you guide us through all of our worries.  You hold a special place in our hearts.  I’ll think of you every time we break open the photos & videos.”

Jen & Henry’s L’Auberge Wedding Video by Classic Filmworks

I just absolutely adored working with Jen & Henry!  We had so much fun together, and all three of us bonded over one of our favorite hobbies, food!  I love having foodie clients!  Aside from that, they are just the sweetest things, and it’s so easy to see how much in love they are.  You can tell when you watch the video below! It warmed my heart to see how happy they were on their wedding day.  Besides that, how stunning did Jen looked her Monique Lhuillier gown? Jen & Henry got married in Del Mar at the Seagrove Park with the reception following at L’Auberge.   This area is just one of my favorite places in San Diego, and it is the reason why I live in San Diego.  The weather that day was perfect and I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.

Thank you Jen & Henry! We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!!


Wynn & Team

Before you watch the video, I also wanted to share Jen & Henry’s testimonial below.

“Wynn is the perfect partner to help you through the highs and lows of wedding planning. She spends time finding out about your personal style and vision for the wedding, then puts in a lot of time, thought, and research to come up with individualized suggestions and ideas that you will love! She is a steady rock for the times when you feel overwhelmed with all of your wedding tasks, and a fun and upbeat friend who genuinely shares your delight at all the other stuff. She is also incredibly organized and trustworthy, which means that you can relax and enjoy the big day without worrying about the last minute details. We are grateful that we were referred to her and look forward to continuing our friendship even though our wedding has come and gone!’

Love Note by Rachel & Ernie {The University Club Atop Symphony Towers Wedding}

The relationship between a wedding planner and the couple getting married is so important.  I just had the most wonderful time getting to know Rachel & Ernie during the year that we planned their wedding together.  It was so much fun and I always get a little sad after the wedding takes place.  They truly are such a special couple and it was such an honor to be a part of their special day!  Rachel was such an awesome bride and she trusted me with every little detail!  It was so much fun styling her and the wedding party!

I had the chance to meet up with the couple for dinner this week, and the note that they sent home with me is exactly why I do what I do =)  Thank you Rachel & Ernie! I wish you a lifetime of happiness & laughter always!

Ernie and I just want to thank you again for everything that you’ve done.  The day that we will never forget, we couldn’t have done it without you!  We knew form the start that you were the perfect coordinator, right when I saw your website and got to talk to you in person.  Ernie and I were already impressed with your humor, all the ideas you’re giving us and professionalism, that’s why we didn’t even waste our time looking for other planners.  We really appreciate your hard work, your perfectionist and attention to each detail.  You were available anytime we had questions, or when we just want to ask for your opinion.  You’re like our 24/7 service, always there when we needed you  =).  You are indeed a wynner!  You definitely handled everything just the way we want it and even above our expectations.  Also, thank you for helping us select all the perfect vendors, they are truly the best and a pleasure to work with.  Again, thank you for making our wedding day memorable.  Memories that we will never forget.  It was a blessing to have had you as our coordinator!

Love, Ernie & Rachel

Love Note from Mother of The Bride {San Diego Wedding Coordinator}

Being a mom to a little girl myself, it always hold such a special place in my heart when I get a chance to plan a wedding with both the bride and her mother.   For Hannah & Andrea their bond was so touching and is truly an inspiration to me.  I had so much fun getting to know them and planning the wedding with them!  Last week I got a wonderful Thank you card from Andrea (mother of the bride) and some wine from their family vineyard Shug Winery.  The note really makes my job so rewarding!

Thank you Andrea, Hannah & Brennnan for having me be a part of the gorgeous wedding and for the heartwarming words!

I just love this picture!

 “Dear Wynn,

Please enjoy this small token of appreciation for everything that you did to make Hannah and Brennan’s wedding day the most perfect day ever!  The guests were all in awe at how beautiful and personal the ceremony and reception were.  We could not have done it without you.  But more importantly thank you for your kindness, your positive attitude and for responding to all of my emails with honesty and kindness.  I’m sure Hannah will also want to thank you too.  She told me that her wedding day was a dream come true.  

Thank you so much!”

Testimonial from Viet & Thad! {Married at The Marston House & The US Grant Hotel}

20120825 viet thad 0588 Testimonial from Viet & Thad! {Married at The Marston House & The US Grant Hotel}

“After working with Wynn for a few months, my husband and I nicknamed her “Wynn-er” because we were so happy with our choice to have her as our wedding planner! Here’s why… 

Steady – there are lots of highs and lows with wedding planning and Wynn knows that from experience. But knowing it, and helping a couple through it are very different things, and one of the best things she brought to our process was being that steadying influence and helping talk me off the ledge … countless times. 

Responsive – My husband and I are techies and constantly on email. Working on a wedding really requires good communication, especially remotely. Wynn is on top of it. We’d always get a response from her within a few hours or less. She always confirmed that she got the email and let us know if she was working on the topic or when she would be. We never had to wonder if she got an email or a message from us. 

The “Negotiator” – Wynn was our full service planner and helped us do everything from the very beginning and even helped us negotiate all our contracts. Since wedding vendors are providing a service, it’s really key to be artful with negotiations since you’re ultimately getting a service. Wynn guided us in walking that fine line and letting us know when it’s appropriate and when it is not. 

Fun & Creative – We had a lot of unconventional aspects to our wedding and Wynn always brainstormed ideas with us. It really was one of the most fun parts of wedding planning!!She also shared the latest trends trends, but also her own ideas to make our wedding unique. 

Wynn was just an absolute pleasure to work with and after a while, it didn’t even feel like she was our wedding planner, but our friend. We always went to her for ideas, suggestions and advice and she never failed to supply us with new creative ideas. Wynn takes the time to get to know you and truly understands your style to make your wedding perfect for you.”—Viet & Thad

Love Note from Tiffany & Jake {The Santaluz Club Wedding, San Diego}

Dearest Wynn,
I just wanted to say THANK YOU so much from the bottom of our hearts! We are forever grateful for you in helping us plan, by far, the happiest day of our lives.
From the first time I met you, there was no doubt we were in great hands. Your expertise and honesty really allowed us to trust you from the moment we started working together. It was proven time and time again through the planning process that we had nothing to worry about. You were always so quick to respond to emails and at an email or text’s reach when we needed something, a question answered, even some comforting! And thank you so much for responding to all the little worries we had, never once making us feel that it wasn’t worth a moment of your time.
Thank you for making our vision come true! You are an amazing designer and your creativity definitely left a lasting impression on our guests! 14 months later, I can’t believe what we had imagined would come to life so perfectly. Our family and friends were amazed and they couldn’t stop complimenting how beautiful and wonderful of a wedding it was – many saying it was the best wedding ever! It was also the first non-traditional wedding in my family and our Parents and Grandparents were extremely impressed. That meant the world to us.
We honestly believe that we worked with THE best vendors out there. Your network and team is amazing. Thank you so much for all your wonderful referrals. It was always so heartwarming when they were extremely pleased to hear that we were working with you!
I know this is a long thank you note but I really needed to express just how thankful we are and the impact you’ve made on us along this process. You are such a genuine, sweet, and beautiful person, Wynn, and we are so honored to have shared this planning process and special day with you! We appreciate you so much and we look forward to keeping in touch with you!
With love,

Tiffany & Jake

From Truc & Chris:

Dear Wynn,

I’ve been meaning to reach out to you earlier – now that the last of out of town family has departed and the dust has settled, I can really have a few moments to properly form my thoughts.

Where do we even begin? No words can properly express the gratitude we have for you and your team. You executed our vision perfectly. Every single one of our guests who we have spoken to since the wedding has told us it was not just one of the best, but the best wedding they have been to. Most importantly to us, our parents were extremely happy. My dad said it was perfect (and he does not express emotions very much), he was so proud of the Vietnamese cultural aspects, he can’t wait to send videos and pictures to our relatives in Vietnam. My mom also asked me to personally send her regards to you.

We also wanted to thank you, Wynn the person, not just the coordinator. You are such a beautiful person inside and out. Your portfolio boasts a multitude of platinum weddings and while ours were nowhere near platinum, you never once treated us any differently and even stretched our budget to make it look more than I envisioned. Not to mention, every single vendor immediately light up when I tell them you were our coordinator and have nothing but praise for you.

I was just telling Chris this morning that I feel so lost now that I don’t have to contact you 5+ times a day asking you for every little thing. Wynn, you were like a sister to me throughout this whole process – I hired a coordinator and unexpectedly gained friend. I hope you don’t mind that I plan to stay in close touch!

Wynn – you were absolutely the best person to entrust one of the most important days of our lives to.

With lots of love and gratitude,

Chris & Truc

Love Note From Ben & Nancy {The Santaluz Club Wedding}

The wedding business and in particular being a wedding planner & designer has got to be one of the most rewarding occupation there is.  I really feel that in order to succeed in this business you have to be able to wear many hats and work with so many different personalities but most important you have to have a whole lot of compassion and heart!  In all my weddings I pour so much work and love into them and to my clients but in the end it was worth it times a million!  Its a unique occupation in a sense where on the wedding day, not only do I get to see everything that the couple and I plan and design transpire right before my eyes but to witness and the happiness and emotions that are experienced on that day.  That’s my favorite part!  For Ben & Nancy I had so much fun getting to know them and working with them and their families!  It’s been exactly a week today and I still get a little teary eyed thinking about the sweet speech that Nancy’s dad gave!

I received this wonderful Thank You note from Nancy & Ben after their wedding!
