Blaire was absolutely amazing and the best coordinator I could have had asked for. I met Blaire at a Wedding Expo, and she immediately impressed me. She was extremely well organized and an absolutely delightful person. She was very easy to communicate with and extremely... Read More professional. We had had an in person meeting a few weeks later, to go over details and what different packages she offered. I come from the film industry as a producer and coordinator, so I was planning on doing a lot of the planning on my own, but would need someone day of. We had Blaire's services for the month prior to our wedding. Not only did I have Blaire the entire month prior, but she would check in and send me check lists the months beforehand, which were extremely helpful. I was having a hard time finding hair and makeup for day of and she had a large database of vendors she had worked with. I had high expectations and she by far exceeded them. We had a bit of a disaster in our wedding planning, when our wedding venue (which we booked over a year in advance) canceled on us two months prior to our wedding. Blaire helped us call new venues, and once we found a new venue, she helped us with finding some last minute details that the new venue didn't offer. Blaire was there during our venue walk throughs, she handled coordinating arrival times with all our vendors, she ran our rehearsal and was an absolute badass day of coordinator! She and her team were so on top of everything day of. The day ran smoothly and stress free. I am a person who stresses over little details and with a big day like my wedding, I expected to be super stressed. Blaire handled everything. She would check in and make sure everything was on time and she just made our day so wonderful and magical. She made our day run so smoothly, which made the day that much better. I would work with Blaire again in a heartbeat. She is wonderful, kind, delightful, and a hard worker. Her experiences is invaluable and I promise that your special day will be that much more incredible because of her.

I really though I could plan my own wedding but it's easier said than done.

We started the planning process in December for my wedding in June. I knew what I wanted, but didn't know how to bring my vision to life. She gave me ideas and suggestions and she created my Pinterest wedding. I wanted a garden greenery wedding, my reception was indoors. She brought in vendors she's previously worked with and they all did amazing. The way she would describe how it would look and it sounded amazing. I trusted her, the day of my wedding she did more than just delivered. She had left us speechless one glimpse and we fell in love. We couldn't believe how beautiful it looked. From the moment I arrived with my now husband she was on top of everything. I knew I didn't have to worry about anything because she had it all covered. Her and her team did amazing, they took care of every little detail. Everyone in our wedding said how smooth the day went and how organize it all was. All I know is that my husband and I didn't have worry about anything that day. We enjoyed our wedding to fullest. Thank you Blaire and the sparkles and vintage team!! Only thing we regret is not getting her sooner.

Hiring SAV was, hands down, one of the best decisions we made for our June 2017 wedding. My now-husband and I definitely had a vision of what we wanted for our wedding, but we both work full-time and it was difficult for us to be able to dedicate time to planning and still...

Blaire listened to our vision and immediately started to propose ideas for us - everything from venues to florists and linen companies. She took our decor ideas helped us to actually create them, even sending us pictures of things she would see while out shopping so that we could consider them. My favorite thing about hiring SAV was that they enabled my husband and I actually ENJOY our wedding. Many times, you'll hear that the bride and groom and so busy at their own wedding that they don't have time to eat or dance or have fun but with SAV, anything that you would normally have to be concerned with is handled for you. You get to enjoy your big day, have fun with your friends and family, and take all of those beautiful photos. Blaire and the SAV team keep things fun and professional, they have the connections you need, and the knowledge and ability to execute flawlessly. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Blaire of Sparkles and Vintage is the best day-of-coordinator I could’ve asked for. As the bride, she made my wedding experience as smooth as possible. PASSION and ENERGY - Blaire’s love for weddings and making clients happy was evident on the first time that we met her. She... Read More went above and beyond our expectations. She even made these huge paper flowers that I originally wanted, but could not afford. I was very happy and surprised when I saw them adorning the wall behind our sweetheart table. It just shows Blaire’s thoughtfulness for her clients and willingness to put that extra effort to make her clients happy. She is also the kind of person whose energy is so infectious, that she was able to keep me going, and on point, especially on the busiest days - the last week prior to the wedding. PROFFESIONALISM – Blaire did her part seamlessly the day of the wedding and the whole month in preparation. She was in charge of communicating with the vendors about arrival time and paperwork. She made me fill out the floorplan, processional & recessional details, and the wedding timeline (which I would not have known I needed to do, thanks to her reminders). She kept the timeline on schedule, even though we were running a bit late. Blaire even took care of some things that needed attention from the vendors after the wedding, while we were on our honeymoon. VISION – Blaire listened to what we envisioned for our wedding. We blurted out the words rustic, romantic, fun, festive and tropical. Despite how hard it is to incorporate all those concepts together, she made it happen. She was not afraid to reject my ideas, when she knew in her gut that it would not work or if it will look contrived. I was so glad I listened to her about not renting French doors for a bridal entrance, because it would have felt contrived amidst the wide open space of our garden ceremony. On the other hand, I am so glad I did spend some more on coral napkins, which added a pop of color to our summer outdoor reception. Her attention to even the small details made everything come together. She was the only person whose design taste I trusted throughout the whole process, and who I will ask for advice. My husband and I are forever grateful for Blaire, who was the fairy godmother that made our dream wedding possible.

She was very detail-oriented and made sure that every aspect of the wedding was personalized and stayed true to what we wanted.

Once I was mentally ready to start wedding planning the hubby kept pushing me to go to the Los... Read More Angeles Bridal Expo. Not knowing what to expect I when online and started researching. I looked at the vendor list and the first thing I knew I needed was someone to guide me through the process. So I looked at the coordinator list and the first thing that caught my eye was the name Sparkles and Vintage. I knew that I wanted my wedding to be vintage, chic, and sparkly and the name just immediately stood out. I then go on Sparkles and Vintage's website and fell in love with EVERYTHING I saw on there! The hubby and I immediately made a plan to make a bee line straight to this booth! We looked everywhere until we finally found them. They had the cutest set up! When I met Blaire I was so excited, I swear I got teary eyed. The vibe this woman gives off is so amazing. She talked to me like we had been friends for years and calmed me down by giving me all the information, and heads up I would need for an upcoming venue visit we had. We hadn't even booked her and she was giving me all kinds of advice! We immediately made an appointment to meet a few weeks later. Had a site visit that same day at an amazing location she found on the spot after explaining what kind of venue we wanted, and had an amazing lunch. (such a good time!) She got me out of a horribly expensive venue situation, by informing me of all the things that the venue was forgetting to tell me and that I would still need to get for a wedding. We booked her on our first meeting! She was my day of coordinator, but when you book Blaire you get soo much more than that. Through the year of wedding planning she would often call me at just the right time, right before I was getting ready to meet with a vendor, and would help me prepare questions I should ask, and things I should look out for. As the time got closer to the day we had a venue visit. It is amazing how she works she thinks of everything! I can see how she was getting excited with me and how she was planning on running the show, and THAT is exactly what I wanted. I didn't want to worry or take care of a damn thing on my wedding day, and that is exactly what happened. If anything went wrong I have no idea I never hear about it. All I heard was how beautiful everything was and how organized and smooth everything went. I can tell you that her game face was on that night! :) I have family members to this day asking me for her contact information, because they loved her soo much. She along with the venue staff decorated, set up, and took down everything and I just showed up, enjoyed, and left with everything that was needed which was already packed in my car. Do your self a favor and just book her now! Thank you for doing such and amazing job Blaire and Staff we really cannot thank you enough. You made our vision come to life and made it even better than what we could have imagined. Pan Dulce, Pearls, and All! -With Love Mike & Vania
