Gina was a dream to work with during our short 6-month wedding planning process. We envisioned a semi-destination wedding weekend extravaganza in beautiful Mendocino, CA with both ceremony and reception outdoors but at different venues. We imme...
diately felt overwhelmed and decided to hire a planner to take some of the stress off.
Lucid Events wasn't the cheapest quote we received for wedding planning & day of coordination services, but Gina went above and beyond others right off the bat showing us she could deliver by immediately researching and getting us the right state park forms necessary to secure our ceremony venue and date - before we even officially decided to work with her!
Once the contract was signed, Gina was an excellent weekly brainstorming partner and advisor for everything wedding related - from putting together the planning timeline & tasks for all of us to invitation and decor ideas, napkin folds, ways to cut costs with florals, cake delivery advice, researching hard to find vendors and keeping me (the bride) from melting down!
During our actual wedding weekend, Gina made it so that I was able to really be present with my guests and actually enjoy my own wedding day instead of worrying about all the logistics, whether things were being set up correctly and if everything was on-time. She saved the day (multiple times from what I heard afterwards) when vendors arrived late, didn't bring certain contracted items and some setup got mixed up between the ceremony & reception sites. She also personally saved this forgetful bride TWICE when I forgot my bouquet both right before I was supposed to walk down the aisle and again right before the bouquet toss.
I highly recommend Gina and Lucid Events for wedding planning and day-of-coordination services if you want to be able to relax and enjoy your big day. She was willing to flex to collaborate and take on as much or as little as I wanted her to during the design and planning phase and it was so easy to work with her even over VC. In addition, Gina is a lightning fast problem solver for any hiccups that might arise on the day of (and they inevitably will for any event no matter how well you plan & prepare).
