The best money you will spend on your wedding

Reviewed on 9/28/2015 Keyan P

My husband, Paul and I, originally hired Cera as our day-of coordinator simply because we were told by so many of our friends that "that's just what you're supposed to do" and "you're supposed to have one". However, Cera proved to be ESSENTIAL in our wedding process- and it... Read More became so clear to us- when we started reading some very negative reviews of our venue. As I was trying not to stress, I informed Cera of the reviews and she took care of my worries right away by going out of her way to speak with the venue owner and some of our vendors. One of the first things that stood out to me when I first met her was how warm she is. Also, it takes a special person to be really on top of things without seeming stressed out or intense. I am a big believer in energy being contagious and I did NOT want a coordinator who seemed like she was running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Cera was everything but that. She is extremely relaxed and calm and most importantly- really on top of EVERYTHING. On our rehearsal day, less than 24 hours before our wedding day- Paul and I were in complete shock when we found a large tree had fallen into our ceremony space. Again, Cera came to the rescue. She took care of speaking with our venue to ensure that the tree would be removed. We were thinking that we would need to change the ceremony location since the venue owner kept saying how long it would take for an arborist to come to the site and use a chainsaw to slowly cut down the tree bits. Because of Cera's help and clear communication, we didn't have to worry about anything. And although the tree was still being cleaned up the morning of our wedding, the site was cleared and our chairs were set up in time without a hitch. On the day of, all of the decorations that I had made were set up perfectly. I have heard stories from my friends where their favors were never set out, or their personalized Etsy silverware or signs were never displayed because they were simply forgotten. Cera and her assistant Valerie made sure that all our decorations/silverware/favors/pictures/kids centerpieces were all displayed and not to mention, set perfectly, exactly the way we had pictured. Cera also made sure to keep our schedule running as ideal as possible. What most people don't realize it that it is easy for any coordinator to keep things running if they are running on schedule. The tricky part is how to run things smoothly when things start to fall behind schedule and you have 10 different vendors who are all trying to stick to their own schedules. Cera and Valerie were flawless in making sure all the vendors, as well as our guests, and Paul and I, stayed happy. Our venue site was huge and I have no idea how but it seemed like Cera and Valerie were everywhere all at once. They directed our parents, grandparents, family, groomsmen, bridesmaids and Paul and I to exactly where we needed to be at the right time. When Paul and I were done with pictures and ready to join our guests at our reception, our dinner was waiting for us at our table. I am all about the little details and Cera made sure that all those details were flawless! Paul jokingly (but in all seriousness) said to me, "Cera is the best money we've spent this wedding" and I wholeheartedly agree. She and Valerie are so genuine, warm and so pleasant to work with! We would do it all over with them if we could! We give Cera and Valerie 10 thumbs up and give them the highest recommendation we can give!

I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Cera and her team. If I could give her 10 stars, I would! She did the decor and flowers for our wedding, and was also our day-of coordinator. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her! She was so incredible at... Read More hearing what I was looking for and perfectly executing it within our budget. I just gave her an idea of what I liked on Pinterest and she completely blew away my expectations with the gorgeous flowers and table decor. All that aside, she was amazing the day of at helping finalize last payments, and resolving any last minute issues that I hadn't thought of. She has got to be the best wedding planner/florist/decorator out there, because I really can't fathom anyone going more above and beyond and being so dedicated to their work. If you're in need of a planner, you don't need to look any further! Cera is the way to go. She and her team are fantastic, and her prices are so reasonable for all that she does. You will be so happy you booked with her! Seriously cannot thank her enough. She made our wedding everything and more than I ever could have wanted.

You need to hire Cera

Reviewed on 8/25/2015 Diana S

Hiring Cera was the best decision I made throughout my wedding planning process. At first I was hesitant- my venue provided a coordinator and I wasn't sure it would be worth it to get another. Cera, however, hit it completely out of the park. First of all, Cera was in touch... Read More with me for several months prior to my wedding, even though I had hired her as a day-of coordinator. She help me with (several) iterations of my timeline, was available to answer any questions I had (I must have sent her a dozen emails that began with "Would it be weird if...?"), and was a go-to contact for my vendors. She also put together a list of how much I owed people and when I owed it by, which was so crucial for me. I am sure I would have forgotten someone and miscalculated had she not been there to do that. During the rehearsal she managed to heard our 14 attendants, plus parents and they all felt confident with the directions given. That evening I went over all of my decorations with her and let her know where I'd envisioned them going. There were also a few I wasn't sure where to place but on the day of she KILLED IT with the decorations. The reception hall looked absolutely flawless and I could not have done it without her. She even helped our florist put together the centerpieces on site and Cera and her assistant Anna both had floral design training, so each little bundle of flowers was absolutely perfect. Besides all of that, which warrants a 5 star review on it's own, 30 minutes before the ceremony began I realized I had gotten tar ALL over the front of my gown (wedding was at a railroad depot). Cera grabbed a catering assistant and began scrubbing my dress with my mom, and miraculously, all of it came out. If she hadn't been there I would have walked down the aisle with a filthy gown, but she really pulled through for me. Cera is wonderful- all of my vendors raved about her and loved working with her. If you're unsure whether or not you need a day-of, even if your venue provides one, call her. She will make all of your wedding dreams come true!!

Here's my honest opinion- Cera was a lifesaver! I initially hired her for more comprehensive wedding planning, but through a sad turn of events a close family member grew ill and eventually passed during our wedding planning. What was supposed to be a blissful year ended up... Read More being a rollercoaster of emotions, and Cera was there through it all. I was juggling so much I was often an MIA client, and when I appeared, I was in a rush - and Cera was there within minutes every time! Three weeks before our wedding we actually had to cancel and reschedule, and she managed all of the communication with our guests at a time when I could not. But the best part was the big day.... I'm an interior designer so I'm of course, particular - and holy cow Cera and her team exceeded my expectations on every level. Every single detail was painstakingly perfect, to the point where I still can't believe it to this day! Every cupcake display, every family photo, every napkin string, the timing of events, you name it. During our rehearsal, she was equal parts fun and 'whipcracker' (on a day when no one listens, let me tell you) - and on the day of she would appear and disappear at just the right moments. It is totally cliche to say I wish I could do it all over again and I would if I could! But not without Cera! :)

Cera is amazing! I know that may sound cliche and nondescript, but it's simply true. There just isn't a better way to say it. She is an excellent communicator, readily available and responsive, and great at working with all of the other vendors. She is so professional and so... Read More likable - I can't imagine anyone not liking this woman. She is just so nice! Weddings can be stressful (duh) and Cera just makes the stress melt away. I think part of it is just her nature, her personality. She has a way of putting people at ease. She is very organized and detail-oriented (which I love), but she is also very calm. When I focus on details, I just stress out and become a control-freak. Cera is not that way at all. She is positive and easy-going, always with a smile and a great sense of humor. Her presence is so reassuring. Her confidence that everything was going to be fine, made me feel that everything would be fine... and then it was better than fine, it was perfect! Leading up to the wedding she helped with questions I had about guests/family/attire/etiquette. And on the day-of, she just managed everything so well. I can't explain it! I didn't have to worry or think about a thing. I could just enjoy my special day. I am one of those brides who had a serious vision, a dream for what my wedding would look like. And I showed up in my gown and the next 8 hours were my dream realized. I must have looked at a thousand pinterest photos in the year leading up to the wedding and on the day of, I felt like I had walked into a living version of those photos. All of the decorations she had put together. Making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be. Having spare fix-it kits for broken boutonnieres. I'm sure she was doing a lot of running around to make sure it all went smoothly, but you wouldn't have known it. She was visible and in contact with me when she needed to be (or when I needed her), but never an interference. I was fully present in the experience of my wedding and not distracted by the timeline and details. Not to mention the clean-up. That's a thing people don't think about, but she organized that too and was so efficient, so that my husband and I could leave the venue and be off to our hotel for a romantic wedding night. I can't say enough positive things about Cera. I wish I could get married all over again - not that I would change a thing, but Cera just made it the day of my dreams, truly.

She's extremely organized and good at managing all of the variables that go into making a successful wedding in the Bay Area. She worked with all of my vendors in a very respectful and professional way and even recommended other vendors at reduced rates because of her connections. :) The day of the wedding she was on top of it. Things came together beautifully and she managed all of the different vendors (and I had many that weren't familiar with the venue).
