Wedding Reviews

My husband and I feel very lucky to have worked with Denise Kramer. We both live overseas and felt like we were in excellent hands with Denise for our Sonoma wedding reception. Denise really went above and beyond our expectations. She’s an excellent communicator and really knows this business in and out. I can honestly say that my wedding day was amazing and I am so thankful to Denise and her assistant for ensuring smooth flow, paying attention to the details and just all around professionalism and that special “je ne sais quoi” in making our wedding special.

Denise is awesome. She went above and beyond to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams.

My wife and I hired Denise as our wedding coordinator over a year in advance of the wedding. Over that period, she gave us advice on pretty much everything to ensure that we could find everything we needed and hire the right people to make the day a success. She also saved us a ton of money by extending us her vendor discounts and pointing us to good values.

We exchanged well over a hundred emails and she met us in person about a half dozen times including a few trips to Wine Country Rentals and a full walkthrough the weekend before the wedding. She almost always responded to emails in less than a few hours no matter when we sent them, and her responses were always helpful and professional.

I’d highly recommend Denise to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator.

Home Wedding – October, 2012

LOOK NO FURTHER! Denise Kramer is THE wedding coordinator you want to relieve your stress, maintain your budget, and help create your perfect wedding!! I should know, I unfortunately had to fire two other coordinators before I found her! The first one outright lied to me, saying that we couldn’t get site visits from rental companies on the dates I’d set aside, when in reality, the rental companies had never heard from her. They were able to see me when I needed them, she just hadn’t bothered to book the appointments, so told me they couldn’t see me on those days. The second coordinator presented me with a rental budget that was almost double the number I had given her for our entire wedding budget. She became rude and condescending when I told her her rental costs were too high, and then she sent me a second budget which I discovered was extensively padded (charging $1200 for a $700 porta potty, etc). SO, how lucky was I to find the most honest, experienced, hard working, honest, budget conscious, creative wedding coordinator in Sonoma County?! Denise is the consummate professional. Unflappable under pressure, she truly understands the pressure the bride and groom are under and goes the extra mileage needed to alleviate it. She has great contacts as well. The staff, caterers Aja & Lynn, that she hired on our behalf were phenomenal and, in my opinion, underpriced, as is Denise! Her assistant Tani was also fabulous. They were exceptional interacting with our guests, all of whom were completely impressed. This is truly FIVE STAR service for pricing that cannot be beat. I just cannot say enough good things about Denise. Our wedding was even more fun than we imagined it would be and that is because, thanks to Denise, we did not have to think about one thing once the pre-planning was complete.

Denise was wonderful, and our wedding was fabulous. She is very responsive and gives guidance all along the way. I think she’s great!

Wonderful denise, the wedding could not have been more perfect — we deeply appreciate everything you did (including, i’m sure, plenty of details that you tended to without our even knowing)!

I don’t know where to start with my thanks. the perfect venue? the rocking band? the gorgeous Chuppah and flowers? these vendors were all recommendations from you, and each one was simply ideal! or perhaps I should start earlier in the weekend — even though you weren’t there on Friday and Saturday, we really appreciated your putting us in touch with Dana at Seghesio.  she was fabulous! or perhaps the perfectly executed timeline and the ‘easy’ feel of the whole event? or the beautiful vintage handcherchief that you slipped me at just the right moment?

I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed ourselves — words don’t sufffice to convey how very much we appreciated it all! thank you for everything you did to make our weekend so wonderful.

Will you let us know if there’s any small thing we can do in return? it goes without saying that we’d love to be a reference, write a review, or help out in any other way.

With much love and all our very best,

Muriel & Brett
