Brenda was AMAZING. I am so glad that she was our wedding planner. She is a true dedicated professional. From day 1 she made sure we were on schedule. We met at a coffee shop and went over our timeline. Brenda is very personable and I love...
d how she took time to get to know both my husband and I. She covered all the details, I didn't even have to worry about everything, it was all under control. The day of the wedding was super stress free, I completely 100 percent trusted Brenda and her apprentice and everything turned out better than I could have ever expected. I would absolutely hire her again :) Best wedding planner ever

As your typical “Bride-On-A-Budget,” I thought hiring a wedding coordinator was something only wealthy people could do. It wasn’t until a coworker of mine said that NOT hiring a day-of coordinator was her biggest regret, that I started to take ...
the idea seriously. And as it turns out, Brenda practically paid for herself! She saved me a $300 flower delivery fee, at least a couple hundred off the DJ, and she has countless other connections in the industry for things like rentals, photo booths, etc.
In addition to being one of the sweetest people I worked with, Brenda was punctual, detail-oriented, kept me on task, and educated me about wedding day traditions and norms. Having her vast amount of knowledge went a long way. She built a detailed timeline of every single activity from the rehearsal dinner, all the way to the after party. I really can’t imagine my day without her and her assistant, Abbey. How in the world could I have set up all of the decorations on my own, paid attention to the time, herded guests and family members to the correct locations for pictures, and cleaned up the entire venue before rushing off to our after party? Answer: I couldn’t.
Brenda - You are amazing. Thank you so much for the indispensable role you played in our special day. You are worth so much more than you charge, but I have to thank you for being so reasonable, otherwise I might not have ever met you!

I am so grateful for Benny & Blaire Events! Brenda was with me every step of the way to help create and put together my ultimate vision. She was never pushy and was always respectful. I can't imagine having put together such a beautiful day wit...
hout her help!! She really is a gem, a hard worker and is extremely dedicated. Brenda even met with me 2 weeks after giving birth! On the day of the wedding it was SO nice to have her there for support. We literally did not have to think about anything. We were able to enjoy our wedding day and our beloved guests with absolutely no worries. I think my husband and I might have had the most fun out of everyone. ;)
Thank you Benny & Blaire Events for helping us create a beautiful and memorable day. xoxo N

When my (now) husband and I started planning our August 2017 wedding in Encinitas, we knew three things. We knew we wanted our wedding to be small, simple, and with the least amount of stress as possible. I am a big believer in DIY so I felt li...
ke I could handle everything that was going to come with our garden wedding. However, I also knew we would need to have someone there the day of our wedding to keep the stress away from our mothers, and away from me! After hours of research, discussions, emails, and phone calls to cross one or two tiny details off of our mile-long To-Do List, I reached out to Brenda from Benny & Blaire just to see what our options were. Brenda quickly organized a meeting at our venue to describe her services and how she could help us on our wedding day. My husband and I were so impressed by her knowledge and organization we immediately booked her. From that moment on, Brenda’s help was above and beyond what we could have asked for. From walking me through a thousand different floral options to booking port-o-potty’s, Brenda was on it. Whenever she found something we were looking for, not only was it spot on with our vision, she was able to find it for a significantly better price than we had estimated- even sometimes from the same vendor we had contacted independently! 5 days before our wedding, I pulled a super-bridal move and changed my mind on the table cloths we had ordered. I sent Brenda a Pinterest photo of what I had in mind and she tracked them down for us within a day. Not only did Brenda reassure me I wasn’t a Bridezilla, she even drove to National City to pick them up for us so we could avoid a heavy delivery charge. Seriously who does that?!?! On the day of our wedding, Brenda and Katey were breaths of fresh air. They were so sweet and calm taking care of us and our parents, even grabbing our Moms water and wine before the ceremony. They obviously know how to take care of business and were so good at making us feel happy, comfortable, and beautiful so we could focus on the important stuff- saying I DO! We had the best time celebrating our marriage with our family and friends with the help of Brenda and Katey. Hiring B&B was hands down the best decision made for our wedding and I could not recommend Benny & Blaire more if I tried!

Brenda at Benny & Blaire was the best choice we made while planning our wedding. She was so on top of everything and so helpful from the day we hired her. We did the 'day-of' service but it felt like full-scale coordination. She recommended ve...
ndors, kept in touch with them beginning months out, met with us three times before the wedding including an extensive venue walk-through, promptly answered any and all wedding questions, and made us feel like we didn't need to worry about a thing!
She was so calm, supportive, and kind from day one through the minute we left our wedding. I received multiple compliments from our guests specifically about how well the wedding was coordinated. She took care of lots of little things that came up day-of (people having very specific food requests, moving seats, etc) and I'm sure many other things that we will never even know about. She's very affordable (absolute best money we spent) and I am SO grateful she was recommended to me because she's a huge reason why our wedding was the best we could've possibly imagined. Thank you Brenda and Benny & Blaire for making my time as a bride easy and fun!!

There are no words to even describe how amazing Benny & Blaire Events are. My husband and I were originally the ones who thought "we can do this whole wedding thing ourselves." Along the way with wedding planning, we got in touch with Benny & ...
