Her creativity exceeded my expectations and I gained so much trust from her while she took on a lot of decisions for our decor.

There aren't words to express how wonderful Blaire is. She is an incredible ball of energy that made our day so perfect and smooth. For the couple weeks leading up to the wedding, I was only thinking about getting myself there, and the DIY projects I wanted to do. EVERYTHING... Read More else was handled, and even things I didn't think to consider, were taken care of. On our wedding weekend, Blaire was there in force. She managed our huge and wild bridal party, and she handled everything for a COLORADO wedding, from Los Angeles. The wedding was beautiful and went off without a hitch thanks to Blaire!!! We could not be more amazed by her. I've been to so many weddings and watched as brides texted through the getting ready process and worried about time, where they should be, where vendors were, etc. Not me!

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.

From my very first meeting with Blaire to tell her my crazy idea of doing a modern Renaissance themed wedding to calling her whenever things got crazy with friends and family to being completely amazed with... Read More her work on our wedding day, Sparkles and Vintage surpassed all of our expectations. On our first meeting, Blaire came prepared with tons of great ideas that made me feel like our wedding was special to her. She is incredibly passionate about her work and will do everything in her power to make sure you have the day of your dreams. We hired her in December for 6 months of planning for our wedding in June. Her team designed a gorgeous custom backdrop for our photobooth and did lots of other arts and crafts projects like ribbon wands to make our event truly one-of-a-kind. The whole event looked like it was out of a fairy tale and it was all thanks to Sparkles and Vintage. Blaire was there every step of the way to make sure I remained stress-free, knew what to do and when to do it, and helped us save a lot of money by connecting us with her incredible florist, DJ and bakery. She was honest about the things that we should splurge on and what we should not bother spending money on. She was very detail-oriented and made sure that every aspect of the wedding was personalized and stayed true to what we wanted. On the day of my wedding, she wrangled all of my crazy family and friends, executed the most beautiful reception room and probably did WAY more than I even noticed because I was able to relax and drink mimosas while the insanity ensued. A HUGE THANK YOU to Blaire and her team at Sparkles and Vintage!!!

Where the heck do you even start planning a wedding?!The dress? The Venue? The date? I was soo overwhelmed by all the unknown I had to stop wedding planning for couple of months. 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

This is going to be a completely honest review of Blaire and her SAV team. My husband and I first met Blaire at the Bride world expo in January of 2014 we loved her energy and her just can do attitude! We at this point had already chosen our venue or date and just about... Read More everything. Fast forward a few weeks we found out our venue (star ranch) had been operating illegally and they had gone under a conservetorship. We found out basically we were conned into losing our hefty down payment. At this point we said screw it we are going to Vegas! We had jokingly said it before like if anything else goes wrong we go to Vegas! But we didnt want little white chaple cookie cutter Vegas we wanted Classy Vegas! So I guess it was meant to be!! We told Blaire and I had originally gotten the impression that maybe she had done a destination. We later realized we would be her first! There were times where she presented us options on receptions, photographers, and florists and of bakeries and she would be very impulsive like "this is it we need to book them now" and I would always go like no that can't be it look harder there is probably cheaper better options out there! And Blaire would, she found our Photographer Sarah Tribett, she found our Ceremony Location the Flamingo Garden Gazebo (even though we found out later on that we weren't able to do our own thing like decorating, flowers, and photography like Blaire had told us, we were later able to under a contract of paying extra) which went from the cost being $ -$$. She also found our amazing reception location Culinary dropout! For flowers we used one of the florist she had found they created our bouquets and the men's boutineers. I had orginally suggested for the reception flowers that we see if the have a Downtown flower mart of Las Vegas! Turns out they didn't but I told her the best bet was ordering from Sams or Costco so we did, now day before the wedding not too sure if they sent the wrong flowers or Blaire ordered the wrong color but they were a very bright pink that she said (well we can use them they match the color of the drink tickets!.... hmmmm NO I'm not trying to match the color of insignificant drink tickets I'm trying to match the color of the rest of my wedding...) so yeah that didn't rub me the right way but all in all day of my wedding we had the correct color roses!!! She did it she pulled it together! Now on to our Reception we did start noticing some issues and a week before found out by new management we can't have the things were were promised and Blaire was ok with settling telling me there was nothing more we can do and she had already spoken to everyone, me on the other hand Nope I went and contacted corporate and sure enough what we were promised we got I received a quick response from corporate that night! And was in contact with the GM the next day! Thats how you get these things done. I shouldnt have had to intervine she should have thought bigger but hey it happens. They were great at Culinary we got what we were promised and it was the best. All in all we were her FIRST destination wedding, and she did a Great job making sure all 80 of our guests experienced a Classy Vegas wedding! Memories to last a lifetime and the hard working team of SAV delivering reception items back to our suite at like 2am!! 4 hours after our wedding was over, she is dedicated and she works her ass off to prove to you she deserves your busisness! Do yourself a favor and hire her! We love SAV
