Kyle & Shara said... "Anita is such a wonderful, attentive, knowledgeable, and dedicated event planner. She planned my wedding and It was one of the best days of my life. Anita and her team made it seem flawless and perfect. During the planning process, she was always available and patient with any questions or concerns I had. She also designed my bouquet- I received so many compliments on it! The Asiatic Lilies were gorgeous and just what I had envisioned. Anita clearly has a dedication, not to mention talent & love for what she does. To this date, I am still told that my wedding was the best (or one of the top) weddings our guests have ever attended. Again, I thank Anita for that because my wedding day was a complete success. I absolutely recommend her to help plan your wedding."
Jordan & Megan said... "Anita Starr of A STARR Events completely understood what we envisioned from the very beginning. We discussed our ideas with Anita and let her run with it! Anita crafted the most beautiful floral arrangements and décor for our wedding. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everything felt like us. It was almost as if she was inside my mind, she really understood what I meant by fun and elegant. Coral and chartreuse hues with gold accents flickered softly through the warm candlelight ambiance."
Nick & Brianna said... "Anita was extremely helpful during the entire process. I was frustrated with trying to plan and organize the wedding on my own so I looked for some help and Anita stepped up to the plate. She was impressively organized from spreadsheets to floor plan layouts. She gave ideas and advice and most importantly listened to all my needs, wants and desires. I would recommend Anita to everyone. Thank you for everything you did for us. Our day was magical and a day to never forget."
Doug & Brenda (Michelle's Parents) said... "Anita was very helpful with helping to plan our daughters wedding. We spent a year working on the perfect wedding for Michelle. Anita designed all the flower arrangements for the wedding, which were absolutely beautiful. She has knowledgeable in all aspects of event planning. Anita has great recommendations for vendors. She kept everyone and everything on time the day of the wedding. My husband and I were able to enjoy the day knowing Anita was in charge."
Alice (Rico's Mother) said... "We retained Anita as our Day of the Event Planner for our son's wedding which, was held at Hidden Valley Music Seminars in Carmel Valley. Thank goodness we enlisted her help a couple of months before the wedding. Her vision and expertise were invaluable because she helped us see things that we would have otherwise missed. She also provided us with additional personnel, where needed, such as babysitters and dishwashers to hand-wash our vintage dishes. On the day of the wedding, she ensured that every detail was covered and every activity on the day's agenda happened as planned. If there were any glitches, we didn't know about them. Anita is creative, highly professional, calm, and listens well so as to create the event you envision. I highly recommend Anita Starr Events."
"----truly a 5-Star professional!"
Colin & Christine said... "At the last minute, we decided to hire Anita for day of coordination for our wedding ceremony in Monterey, Ca. My husband and I did the majority of the coordinating and planning with wedding vendors prior to the big day, but when it came down to it, we realized that we would need someone to orchestrate all of the details while we were busy getting married! Thank goodness Anita was available! She responded immediately to our emails and we set up a time to meet in our wedding ceremony location. She was very sweet, flexible, professional and not to mention in our budget! ASTARR Events offers wedding packages as well as a la carte services. Knowing that we had already done the bulk of the work, Anita stepped in gracefully and helped us to smooth out the details and create our vision. Anita has a lot of experience and is well connected with the wedding vendor community. She also gave us several suggestions for our wedding ceremony that we didn't even think about! We also later found out that Anita handled a last minute emergency before the wedding ceremony on our wedding day. The last thing any bride & groom need on their wedding day is added stress, and we are so happy that Anita was there to handle the situation while also ensuring that we were both calm and happy! It was such a beautiful experience to work with Anita and her staff and we would highly recommend her services to any and all couples who are looking for a wedding planner/ wedding coordinator. If you are debating about whether or not you will need a wedding planner or coordinator on your big day, stop debating and book with A STARR events! Anita is worth every penny! William & Lindsey said... We retained Anita to be our wedding planner and could have not picked a better one! She was incredibly thorough, punctual, professional, calm, she was on top of issues almost before they happened, and most importantly, she has integrity. She did exactly what she said she would do for us on our wedding day. At one point probably 1 hour before the start of our ceremony, it was recognized that the venue did not provide enough dinner plates, glasses, and silverware as was written in the contract we had earlier negotiated. Anita did not miss a beat, she was on the phone and had everything rented and delivered within the hour. She also assisted us with discussing the discrepancy with the venue and we were reimbursed for the price of the rental dinnerware. If you want a hard working & affordable event planner, call Anita."
"Dearest Anita, I will have to find a way to share all of the beautiful photos from our wedding day! Chad and my ear-to-ear smiles and our calm attitudes are a testament to the incredible work you do. I am so happy to have met you!"
Marcia (Emily's Mother) said..."I was extremely happy to have Anita as our daughter's wedding planner. Anita was extremely resourceful, creative and her attention to detailed follow-up were exceptional in every way. She constructed a large and portable wooden frame for a wedding arch that we had covered in flowers; it beautifully complimented the venue overlooking the Monterey Bay. Everyone commented on how elegant our wedding was down to the last detail. Anita was professional and approachable; I knew I could rely on her for any little request. I am pleased to give Anita my highest recommendation as a wedding planning professional."
