About this pro

We can't wait to meet you and provide excellent services so you can sit back, relax and have a blast! That or maybe you are ready for that all important commitment...marriage. Theresa is an ordained minister and has been performing weddings for some time now. When not doing the ceremony you can find her coordinating or decorating. Weddings are her passion, though you can bring her expertise to any special event you have. There is a small but awesome team to support her when needed. So whether you are wanting to be married by Theresa or have her plan your wedding she will provide great services and at an affordable price. Thanks for stopping by!

I really enjoy the outcome of all the work. Seeing people have a great time, it's so rewarding. Most people have no idea how much work goes into a great event, and that is how it actually should be.The same goes for officiating. I spend hours typically writing and rewriting the ceremony script. My goal is for you to have a memorable event no matter what part I play. I also really enjoy that I get to meet new and interesting people all the time. Most all of my clients have wonderful people surrounding them. Then there are the vendors, it's just great having to work together with people towards a common goal, it really makes this work fun...for me anyway.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Well we like to answer any questions you may have and let you get a feel of what we are all about. We will ask you questions as well. We will want to know what it is you need and exactly what you want you accomplish. Why are you having this event in the first place. We can help you figure out what is truly necessary and what maybe is not. If you are wanting Theresa to marry you we will want to get to know you a bit more. It is all about doing things for you, so we want to know you. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Theresa is ordained and can legally marry you anywhere in California. She is also a certified event planner. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Our prices are standard within each of the categories we service. For more details you can visit our websites. 

How did you get started in this business?

Theresa has been planning parties since her children were young, 30 years ago. She helped friend and families with their parties as well until one year when she helped plan her parents 80th birthday for 200 people. It was then she knew she had what it takes and has been planning ever since, as well as educating herself continually to remain the best event planner she can be. 

What types of customers have you worked with?

Theresa has worked with mostly younger people in their 20's and early 30's, however she has helped teenagers plan parties for their oarents and several elderly plan anniversaries or birthday parties. She works with the mothers of brides quite often too. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

This is a hard one as every event leaves especially fond memories. Weddings are Thetesa"s favorites and it is a special feeling to actually join two people into matrimony. 

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Talk to that person and determine if they are really listening to your desires or are they trying to take over. This is about you not them. You will want to know they have experience, but don't make it so strict like say a wedding planner bit your event is for an aniversary. They will be able to apply emphatic the know from weddings. Now maybe don't have the same person do your corporate event as that is a bigger difference. Mostly make sure you get along, especially for larger events like a wedding. You May be spending a lot of time with this person. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

It is very important to think through your budget first. All too often expectations due to things like pinterist posts can lead you to believe a certain look is obtainable easily. We are here to help and work hard and often long behind the scenes and are trying to save you money, but things cost and this is our job and we need to be paid too. So know we are not over charging you, it really is that expensive for so much of what is needed for a great event.
