Happy Wedding Wednesday! I could not be more excited to share with you all that John and I have officially chosen our wedding planner, Claudia Hoste of Hoste Events! After “interviewing” a few different planners via phone, searching through portfolios, Instagram accounts and reviewing event planning brochures, we know that Claudia is the perfect fit to help bring our vision and dream garden wedding to life.
I knew Claudia was going to be a serious contender off that bat when we got to talking. Her sweet and energetic personality is contagious and when she mentioned over the phone something along the lines of “I want you to be sipping champagne with your bridesmaids the day of the wedding without any stress or worrying about what needs to get done” I was sold. It was as if she read my mind, and her upbeat personality was something I was extremely drawn to during the initial call. Not only has Claudia made the planning process fun so far with her organized set of wedding planning tools (yes, I find organization fun), she also sent us a month to month checklist that will be extremely helpful throughout the next 9 months. Everyone, meet Claudia!
Based on the Central Coast, Claudia offers two different packages to help assist engaged couples bring their big day to life. Not only does she offer full service event planning, she also offers “month of” planning services for those that want to plan the majority of their wedding, but still have Claudia’s assistance with recommendations along the way and to have her pull all the loose ends together the month before a wedding. John and I chose to go the full service route, and we know it is the best option for us since we are somewhat far Santa Barbara. Over the course of our wedding planning, I will be sharing more about Hoste Events, including past examples of her prior events through a monthly installment. Come along with me as I share our planning journey!
