How would you describe what you do?

I have the best job in the world. I help my brides and grooms see the big picture of their wedding day from the first meeting. I negotiate the best deals for them while keeping everyone organized, which allows my clients to have fun and enjoy the planning process. I am a friend when emotional situations arise, and a calming presence when they become overwhelmed or stressed. On the wedding day I put out the fires before anyone ever knows about them and strive to make their wedding day as close to perfect as possible.

 

How long have you been in the business?

I opened my business 5 years ago and have planned over 100 weddings.

 

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

A planners job is to make the wedding planning process as fun and stress-free as possible so the client can reflect on their engagement as an exciting time in their life that was properly managed. Planners guide the client on everything from overall design, to the budget, to menu wine pairing... we are full of information and our guidance is worth every penny.

 

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

My company has 5 packages that range from planning a weekend of wedding events to month-of wedding day execution. My packages and prices are published on my website so the client understands that I charge based on the amount of work required rather than based on their overall wedding budget.

 

What is your most popular package and why?

Most brides book us for full planning. They quickly realize how valuable it is to have a professional guide them to through the the entire process and help them choose what to prioritize. There is also a trust that is built between myself and the client that makes them feel confident about their wedding day going smoothly. That relationship is built over time.

 

Are you able to counsel me on wedding etiquette?

Absolutely, I consider guidance on etiquette a very important part of a wedding planners job. The client is paying for knowledge and experience.

 

How do you charge? What are your rates?

I charge a flat rate for each planning package. My prices range from $3,000-$14,000

 

Is there anything else you would like me to know?

Before opening my business 5 years ago I managed large feature films for 10 years. This prepared me for "producing" weddings, overseeing vendors, and making sure the final product was one to be proud of. This has set me apart from other planners because my background is truly unique.

 

TESTIMONIALS:

 

Passionate. Creative. Detail-oriented. Professional. Tenacious. Ultra-organized. Those are the first adjectives that come to mind when we think of Tessa. When we were first looking for a wedding planner, Tessa was 1 of 4 we had reached out to for an inquiry. Tessa was the quickest and first to respond (despite being on vacation) and provided realistic and helpful advice during our first call, even though we hadn't committed to working with her. Tessa's works hard EVERY SINGLE DAY and is truly dedicated to her clients. From day one, she makes you feel like the highest priority and stands up for you when vendors are being difficult or fussy - something we quickly learned is a common characteristic of this industry. Tessa has a business mindset which means she understands what her clients need, and does whatever she can to get there. We both work in management consulting and understand what a client-serving job entails. This also means we had high expectations and unique requests for our wedding. Choosing Tessa as our wedding planner was the easiest and best decision we made to plan our wedding. Tessa's passion in her work, attention to detail, problem-solving mindset, open communication, endless ideas and genuine level of engagement is something we simply couldn't have gotten elsewhere. She has an impressive network of vendors and simply "gets it". Thanks to Tessa, we had the wedding of our dreams! She managed every little aspect of the day in the most impressive manner and nobody - not even ourselves - noticed the tiniest hiccup that she was solving behind-the-scenes (and every wedding has them). She had a solution for every challenge and just killed it! Our close friends and family that met Tessa before our wedding were so impressed that it took our recently-engaged best friends not a single moment of hesitation to hire her for their wedding. Tessa, thank you SO much for everything you did to make our wedding day a reality! Sana and Brent

 

"Tessa was simply a dream come true. We worked together for 7 months planning my wedding. I was living on the east coast when I began looking for a planner and the moment I called Tessa, I knew she was the one. She offered venue ideas and even came to meet my fiancé and I at a venue even before we even hired her. After I moved to LA, and during the chaos of transitioning to a new city, a new job and planning a wedding, Tessa kept me on track during one of the busiest and stressful times in my life.

Tessa’s style and taste is impeccable so her recommendations of vendors and other ideas were top-notch quality. She sent emails daily to keep me posted on all the details of the wedding and even responded on her days off. In short, she was extremely professional and responsive.

We had an Indian Catholic ceremony with 190 people flying in from the east coast, and with many moving parts, Tessa managed the ceremony seamlessly. Any hiccups in timing were dealt with effectively; we did not have to worry about a thing. Tessa’s personality is so lovely but she is not afraid to be assertive when needed and when dealing with my guests from New York/New Jersey, this was needed! I am going to miss planning with Tessa and our daily emails. She truly made my wedding planning so fun and exciting. This turned out to be the best day of our lives and Tessa was one of the major reasons why. I would unconditionally recommend Tessa to any bride out there! She is worth every penny!"

"Hands down the best decision I made was hiring Tessa to guide our wedding planning process. From my first conversation, I knew immediately that I had found someone very special; I knew I had not only met the most amazing wedding planner, I also knew I had made a lifelong friend. From day one, Tessa provided me with a wealth of knowledge and support and made me feel at ease throughout the entire process.

Tessa is the crème de la crème of Los Angeles best wedding Cordinator's. She is experienced, capable, honest, reliable and hard working. She has extremely fabulous taste, is kind and loving. I felt as though I was planning my wedding alongside someone I had known for many years. As a perfectionist myself and a bit of a control freak, Tessa seamlessly guided me through the most incredible planning experience. She provided a detailed timeline that clearly explained roles, expectations and deadlines. She worked alongside my fiancé and I to create a budget, hire & interview vendors, plan intricate details and execute the perfect day! She attended countless meetings, arranged hotel blocks, transportation and facilitated all communication between our vendors and our venue. She provided advice, helped handle any sources of potential drama or headache and made the process enjoyable. I had prompt response to any questions and calls and emails never went unanswered.

Tessa and her team gave us the most amazing gift by allowing us to relax and enjoy the company of each-other, our families and friends, this is invaluable. If something didn't go as planned, I would have never known. Tessa was organized and prepared for pretty much anything. If we could replicate our wedding day over and over, we'd have Tessa alongside us every single time! I can't recommend her highly enough and feel confident that anyone who hires her will feel the same amount of gratitude and appreciation that we feel today!" - Jenn and Antonio
