I've been in business since 2000. Veronica has been working with me for 8 of those. Both of us had event or wedding experience for many years prior to that. Our combined EXPERIENCE is 35 years. That's alot of EXPERIENCE right? Together, we've been part of hundreds of weddings. Not only that...WEDDING PLANNING is my only job. This is not a hobby or part time fling. It's my passion. I breath it, eat it, dream and LIVE it.
When interviewing coordinators, ask them about their EXPERIENCE. Talk to their previous clients, research them online, and read their reviews on websites such as Wedding Wire, Project Wedding, and The Knot. There alot of beginners out there offering their services far cheaper than we do. They may have a cute website, and a clever tag line, but EXPERIENCE is more important than anything. Experienced planners have seen everything that can possibly go wrong. We have the knowledge, confidence and real experiences to handle anything that comes our way. But more than anything else, our expertise allows us to see the pitfalls before they occur. We're professionals and it shows.
EXPERIENCE + REPUTATION = PEACE OF MIND for you. Because we've been in business for 10 years, we've worked at hundreds of venues throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Palm Spring and Las Vegas. We've worked long and hard to build rewarding relationships with the finest venues and vendors Southern California has to offer. When a venue manager, or a vendor hears our name, they get pretty excited. They love working with us, and often offer you THE CLIENT discounts because of it. Knowing that the Wedding Jeannie Team is on board means their job will be made easier.....and FUN!
I know you have many choices available to you. As you do your research, make sure whoever you choose has EXPERIENCE. Ask the tough questions, and don't expect anything less than the best for your special day. EXPERIENCE may cost a little, more, but I think you're worth it.
