About Saundra & Recent Reviews
"I couldn't be more pleased to provide this review for Saundra, as she truly was amazing to work with for my wedding. I hired Saundra as a day-of coordinator, which includes a few meetings leading up to the event. (We met by phone, as I was planning my wedding from across the country.) Saundra helped me to keep all the details in line as we approached the wedding, and communicated efficiently through email and phone calls to ensure she had all the information she needed to keep the day running smoothly, including copies of contracts and a timeline for the day's events.
A few family members had included some things in their speeches that I had asked them to omit, but because Saundra asked for speeches to be sent in advance, she was able to review them and tactfully guide the speakers toward an acceptable outcome. She listened closely to our desires, and really kept the wedding focused on the things we wanted.
My wedding was held at a private (and beautiful!) home [estate], and on the day, I've since learned that there were a few glitches, including people moving things from our staging area to other places in the home, causing Saundra additional work. The thing that is most impressive to me about that added stress was that I had no idea it was happening. Saundra stayed cool and collected, and handled each situation on her own, which allowed my husband and me to enjoy ourselves, spend time with our guests, and focus on each other.
Leading up to the wedding, I told my fiance multiple times that hiring Saundra was the best wedding decision I could have made. After all is said and done, I'm certain our day wouldn't have been the same without her. She worked hard, and all we had to do was have fun! All the details were in place, and I had no worry because I knew she was taking care of everything.
Thank you again, Saundra, for being so supportive and helping to create a beautiful day for my husband and me, and all of our guests!"
Kimberly J - Maryland/Sonoma Wedding
As a Wedding Coordinator
For many, many years I planned and/or managed corporate events--both international and domestic. Gradually over the years, friends began asking me to plan and event manage milestone celebrations--weddings, birthdays & anniversary parties.
A few years ago, I left Corporate America to pursue this passion full-time and have extended my services to include wedding coordination having completed a Wedding Planner Certification course with the renowned, Joyce Scardina-Becker so my clients get the benefit of all my years of corporate event & project management experience plus wedding specific training as well.
As a Non-Denominational Minister
I work with all couples in love to customize your story, your commitment into a celebration you will cherish for years to come.
I've worked with a myriad of couples who vary greatly in their perspectives --from agnostic couples to couples who are devout
followers of their faith.
What better place to marry than in the Bay Area; indeed a picturesque region--the Vineyards of Napa, Sonoma & Livermore, San Francisco City Hall, our Regional Parks and coast lines all providing you with a diversity of backdrops in which to celebrate your love.
Between both roles, I've officiated and/or coordinated over 55 weddings the past 12 months. My life experiences have brought me to this point in my life and I love what I do--I look forward to meeting with you and your 'soon-to-be-spouse' to discuss your ceremony, exchange ideas, and do the work necessary to ensure your wedding day is everything you dreamed it would be!
