Satra was amazing. Her calm demeanor, flexibility, coordination, responsiveness, and professionalism make her the perfect wedding coordinator. She reached out to us months before the wedding so we could start planning details, coordinated all of the logistics with the vendors so we didn't have to worry about anything on the day of, and the entire wedding was flawless. When we wanted to switch things up last minute, she was very open to it and made sure the people affected were notified immediately. If you want everything on your special day to go exactly as planned (or even better), Satra can help you make that happen! She was the best vendor of all.

Describing the value of Satra's services in words is not an easy task. While it is easy to identify when and how she was dependable, responsive, professional, valuable, and flexible it is difficult to actually explain the feeling of calm she gave me with every meeting, correspondence, and of course, the day of. We hired her as a part time planner, but i'm not quite sure what her full time planning looks like, as she was always quick to respond to emails and offer advice. It felt like she got to know us quickly, as her advice was always spot on and delivered with kindness and confidence. I trusted her and her recommendations with vendors proved that she was trustworthy. What I found to be most telling was her reputation with the vendors we talked with, even the ones she did not recommend. They enjoyed working with her and it was obvious they respected her input. The caterer voiced it perfectly when he said something like, she knows when to but in and when to step away. The day of the wedding went smoothly, and without any hiccups. If there were problems, we were completely oblivious to them. Satra was always there to make sure we were fed, drinks were in hand, and we were enjoying ourselves. She dealt with everyone with a smile on her face and an air of calm that was contagious. Looking back, I am thankful she was there not just because she is organized and her timelines calmed my mother down, but because I truly felt that she was on my side, and that my wedding was the only thing on her mind. When the wedding came to an end, I was amazed at how comfortable I was with her. I had this overwhelming feeling of contentment knowing that my wedding planner was not just a wedding planner, but someone I actually enjoyed spending time with. I have told many people that while picking my now husband was the best decision I've ever made, picking Satra was a close second. Satra - you're the bomb. Thank you for everything.

What can I say? 100% and 5/5. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!!! And it was all due to Satra and her team! Thank you so much, Satra - I can't thank you enough! She made everything come together so perfectly and kept us to our timeline (at a venue where we were using all the indoor rooms and outdoor spaces, with about 300 guests). There was a lot of (intentional) movement of the different phases of our wedding day/reception, and Satra executed perfectly! I booked Satra for her month-of and day-of package. She was helpful in recommending any vendors I was considering, but I started working with Satra from the point of our venue walk-through (about 1.5 months before the wedding). She used Google Sheets/Drive with us which made everything so easy to keep track of and organized. In the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, Satra was so helpful in vendor communication and all the little details I would have never thought of. She is SO organized (and as someone who really appreciates organization) Satra is unbelievable. Honestly, she made the few weeks leading up to the wedding so much less stressful! And for the wedding day, she made it stress-free! We had so much family around for our pre-ceremony photos, getting-ready, etc. and she was beyond wonderful in communicating with everyone (guests, family, and vendors) on the day-of. I did not have to worry about a thing! Satra is so calm (she has such a wonderful presence) and she handled every situation impeccably. Her suggestions and solutions (even in the last minute) were perfect. Satra has fantastic relations with vendors - which I will tell you as a bride makes ALL the difference in the world! And that excellent vendor relationship she has with others really showed in the weeks leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day as EVERYTHING went so perfectly (and stuck with the timeline!) Seriously Satra, I could go on and on about ya - lol! Book Satra. She's the best in the business. End of story.

I am writing this review from the groom's point of view. Most wedding planners (and vendors in general) cater to the bride, and rightfully so. But I have to say that it was such a pleasure working with Satra not just because she did an incredible job in helping guide our wedding, but also because she kept both my wife and me in the loop on everything and was very inclusive. She took charge with many aspects of the planning but always seemed to know when to check in with us. We met Satra through my wife's brother's wedding (which we were a part of) and the way she ran the show with her calm but attentive demeanor made us realize right away that we wanted to work with her too! She is extremely organized and had excellent ideas as well as recommendations for vendors. She managed a lot of the moving parts and was invaluable leading up to our big day. And on our big day, she went above and beyond on everything: attending to every detail, coordinating our vendors, directing our wedding party, etc. And we saw her calm demeanor once again, making sure that everything went off without a hitch. Her assistant Demitria was amazing too, great attention to detail! I remember in particular how she meticulously arranged our place cards in a nice pattern and made sure our ballroom looked great. I recommend Satra 100%!

Satra was our wedding coordinator for our Sonoma September 2013 wedding. She did an absolutely flawless job keeping all event logistics and vendors in order, along with conducting our rehearsal, all day of wedding set-up in addition to my last minute freak out regarding our seating chart - which she solved in an instant. Satra is the one vendor from our wedding that we would 100% re-hire without any hesitation. She is a seasoned professional who has a very calm demeanor, which is exactly what ever bride needs on her wedding day. I felt that her fees were very fair and competitive from the other referrals I contacted. Satra responded to all my e-mails & calls within a very short timeframe. She was there when we needed her most & you would be very lucky to hire her for your special day as she's a total gem in the wedding business!!!

Satra is AMAZING!! She really made our wedding come together and helped us create the vision for it. I reached out to Satra with really no clue about what to do with our flowers, the decor, bridesmaids' jewelry, etc, and she threw out so many great ideas during our first meeting that made planning so much easier! She's extremely helpful, very dependable, and I could always count on her to be responsive via email, text or phone. She's also a great listener, and trust me, brides - sometimes you just want to vent about the guy doing your flowers who just can't get it right! ;-) She's great to team up with when going to different vendors, because she'll really make sure to understand your vision and communicate that clearly to the vendors you're working with! This quality is extremely hard to find! And lastly, as hectic as weddings can get especially on the wedding day, Satra remains calm and composed during it all, while making sure everything is taken care of! Thank you Satra - it was such a great experience working with you and such a memorable day! Big thanks and lots of love.
