How would you describe what you do?

At Confetti Skies, our number one mission is to get to know our clients and to pull their personality into their wedding day as much as possible. We believe whole heartedly that a couple's wedding should reflect who they are, as it makes for a much more personalized and memorable experience for them and their guests. Whether it's helping a client find a venue that they completely fall in love with or adding a personal element to their ceremony, we are here to make wedding planning fun and exciting for the couple. Yes, wedding planning can be stressful, but with the right planner, planning can be an enjoyable experience for everyone.

How long have you been in the business?

Confetti Skies was born in 2014 when I decided to venture off on my own, but I have been in the industry since 2007. I have been a venue manager, catering sales rep, and assistant wedding planner prior to opening Confetti Skies. Being on the venue and catering side prior to having my own wedding planning business has been the most beneficial part of my career because I understand the back of house and the importance of having a solid timeline.

What is your philosophy of a wedding planner and their role in helping brides and grooms plan their wedding?

My philosophy is that a wedding planner is a reliable expert that can help take your day to the next level. Wedding planners have knowledge that brides and grooms don't necessarily have, and quite frankly, shouldn't be expected to have! For the most part, couples are doing this for the first time, and a wedding planner does this every day. Wedding planners are here to be your best support system and guide you through the process. We don't expect you to know everything, and even if you do, you should ENJOY your wedding day, not worry about if the escort cards are in alphabetical order so your guests can find their seats quickly. Even if a couple wants to do all of the planning up front, a month-of coordinator is worth the investment to tie up loose ends and ensure your day runs smoothly. Even as a wedding planner, I hired a month-of planner to coordinate my wedding. That is how strongly I feel about planners and the benefit of having one.

Do you offer packages: If so, what are they?

I offer a range of services starting with Month-Of Coordination all the way up to Full Planning depending on each couple's planning needs. I can also customize collections based on a couples specific needs and wedding vision as long as it does not fall below my minimum requirement of services.

What is your most popular package and why?

My most popular package is the Sparkler Collection (Partial Planning) because the majority of couples who hire me already have a vision of what they want, they just need help executing it and finding the best resources to do so.

Are you able to counsel me on wedding etiquette?

Absolutely! I am happy to counsel couples on any questions that may come up from traditions to trends. The great thing about getting married these days is that you can really create your own rules and make your wedding your own!

How do you charge? What are your rates?

We have a base price and build from there depending on size, location(s), and scope of the wedding. A customized quote is available after our initial consultation. I believe in pricing fairly and realistically for couples and am happy to answer any pricing questions couples may have. Being able to communicate and be transparent with clients is very important to me and is part of the foundation of our new relationship.

Is there anything else you would like me to know?

Wedding planning is a very personal and highly emotional time for couples. When hiring a wedding planner, make sure you feel comfortable and trust them. They will be your right hand person throughout the process and will keep you calm on your wedding day. If you don't trust them (even if they're the most inexpensive), you will have a very long road ahead. There are many planners out there and "clicking" with someone goes a long way. I personally am never offended if someone doesn't book me because they gel with someone else better. I am actually very happy that they have found a planner that they're excited to work with and are at ease with their decision. This is your day and you should have the best team on your side!

 

TESTIMONIALS

David & Jenny Hughson- married 2/20/16

Have you ever had one of those moments where you looked back on a decision you made and you realize how valuable it was? Maybe in that moment you're just a little blown away by the impact of your decision because when you made it you didn't know what the outcome would be. That's the feeling I have now when I think back on me and my wife's decision to choose Aimee as our Wedding Coordinator. We got married at Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano and in the beginning I figured having some help would be beneficial but I was also thinking that my wife and I could pull it off on our own. Holy crap was that a naïve thought and now quite laughable considering we planned a two-hundred person wedding. There is nothing to prepare you for the amount of work to be done and decisions to be made regardless of the guest count or location. Be prepared to choose how you want your napkins folded. Yeah, that's really a decision that must be made. I would suggest you ask for help on your way to the alter and Confetti Skies is a great place to start. Aimee is the rock. When the room catches on fire and everyone is standing around looking at each other she is the one who calmly walks over and dumps a pitcher of water on the flames. Aimee has the expertise that calms your nerves and she is such a good listener it's the first thing you'll notice about her. Our wedding day was such a hit and throughout that day and for the past four months every one of our guests has raved about how much fun it was. Aimee was attentive, communicated well, and thought of everything to ensure our day was so memorable. I'll sum this up by saying I can't wait to get married again just so I can work with Confetti Skies (Aimee, please don't tell Jenny). Do yourself, your sanity, and your future spouse a favor and contact Aimee Takumi. She was a huge part of our special day and it would not have been such a success without her. Thank you Aimee

Gus & Luciana Benavides- married 10/7/16

Aimee from Confetti Skies was absolutely AMAZING!!! She made my wedding day go smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing. She was also lovely to work with and fun to talk wedding stuff with her. The entire wedding day was planned according to what I exactly wanted with Aimee’s suggestions, of course that I definitely took into consideration and appreciated. Any question I had via email was always answered promptly and I did have many questions. From groomsmen suits, flowers, linens, etc. She was able to answer it all and help alleviate my stress. I even texted her images of some décor items I wanted to buy to get her thoughts and she was super helpful in helping me make a decision. On the day of the wedding Aimee was amazing and absolutely nothing went wrong on that day. I always heard from other brides that something always goes wrong at weddings and nothing did for mine. That can be attributed to Aimee! Her expertise and professionalism is on point and I would be happy to work with her again for any future events.

Charles & Brittany Heidler- married 4/22/16

Words cannot begin to express the gratitude we have for the amazing job Aimee did coordinating our wedding. She was professional, attentive, and organized throughout the entire process and her follow up was impeccable. Her timely communication and quick responses were greatly appreciated. She always stayed one step ahead of the planning process and always made herself readily available for any questions or advice we needed throughout the planning process, often responding to our late night emails. Her online planning tool made guest list and vendor management a breeze! Finally, Aimee truly cares about her clients and it showed on the day of our wedding. Days before our wedding, she went above and beyond to help me find gardenias, my late grandmother’s favorite flower, to place in my bouquet. She even added a special touch of placing one of the extra gardenia blossoms at my dinner place setting which truly touched my heart. Also, the bustle on my wedding dress became quite problematic and would not stay hooked. Before I knew it, Aimee and her assistant were right behind me figuring out a fix while we continued to visit with our guests. We cannot thank her enough and would recommend Aimee to any bride wanting a stress free planning process with the care and personal attention of a friend!
