Belles & Whiskey are amazing planners! In particular, I worked with April. She was so detailed, communicative, and so organized from the beginning to the very end. I am a type A personality and usually am not very trusting of people. However, the day I hired April was when all my worries and anxieties melted away. I would constantly "check in" with her to gently remind her of things that needed to get done; and to my surprise, she always had the information handy or already took care of it! That is what every bride needs--to know that they are in the best hands. April was always willing to answer my questions no matter what time of day. She is very accessible and always responds via email, text, skype, phone--she will exercise all modes of communication to make sure that you're at ease and prepared for the big day. On the day of our rehearsal, I saw a fat binder with all email communications that I have had with her in the past, pictures of inspiration that I would randomly send to her, all vendor contracts, and maps of San Francisco. I shocked at how detailed and well prepared she was. April will not disappoint you and the best thing is that she handles stressful situations well, yet is very focused and knows what needs to get done at the same time. My vendors all spoke highly of April and loved working with her. I 100% recommend April to help coordinate your wedding.

Belles & Whiskey went above and beyond as our day-of coordinators for our wedding. They were incredibly helpful and responsive beforehand, even though there were a ton of moving parts and they pulled everything off flawlessly on the day of the wedding. I had a lot of timing-specific requests and nitpicky decor details and they got every single thing perfect. I was so happy when I walked into the reception area for the first time. April and Grace also made sure we ate and had drinks throughout the evening, made sure our guests were comfortable and were so helpful even after the wedding when some of our items got mixed up. I would highly recommend Belles & Whiskey to anyone who needs a coordinator or planner for their wedding, especially if you are detail-oriented. Thank you April and Grace for being so amazing!

"I spent some time in event-planning for nonprofits - in fact, I got my start in events by working for April. So, needless to say I felt both confident that my partner and I could do it all AND all I could see when I daydreamed about the wedding were all the boring details that I had couldn't bring myself to care about if I wasn't being paid to care. That's when I knew that even if I *could* do it all, I shouldn't have to! Enter the Belles & Whiskey team - they were fantastic and totally critical to my being able to focus on the magic of the day rather than the nitty gritty. They somehow managed to fade into the background to take care of business, while also magically popping up the second Tony or I even thought we needed something. There was never a crisis to concern myself with (and if you've even thrown a dinner party, you know something is always about to go sideways!) because the team #handledit. Throwing a wedding is part hosting and part pageantry - my partner and I were dressed to kill, mingling and laughing with loved ones while B&W took care of all the nuts and bolts. Do yourselves a favor on your special day - hire these bosses!"

My husband and I are pretty particular when it comes to event planning. We decided to plan most of our wedding ourselves, but knew we couldn't do it all. We didn't want to stress or have to worry about managing vendors on the day of. That is where B&W came in. They were lifesavers! The team put our minds at ease, helped organize our last minute details and were completely ON TOP OF EVERYTHING throughout the day. They even double checked our wedding cake and made sure that the right flowers were placed minutes before cake cutting! B&W's specialty is understanding your needs, managing your expectations and executing gracefully. I don't know what we would have done without them on our wedding day. We loved our experience with B&W so much that we even had them work on planning our baby shower! It was like wedding 2.0. Save yourself the trouble and stop looking. B&W will take great care of you!
