Callista was the best thing that ever happened to us. I was a very naive and indecisive bride who had very little idea what I wanted in regards to my wedding nor how to approach it, especially in terms of details. Callista went above and beyond to make the planning process approachable and organized. Not to mention she was a constant source of support and encouragement, which was definitely necessary at times. One of the aspects I am most grateful for was her focus on my fiance (now husband!) and me, on what we wanted, what we felt was appropriate, what fit our personalities, rather than our families, social norms or expectations. It not only made us feel comfortable, but helped remind us repeatedly that this day was really about us. She was a constant ally and advocate. I especially recommend her if you are planning on using our venue, the Farimont Miramar. While absolutely gorgeous and puts on a great party, the venue staff can at times be unresponsive and challenging to work with during the planning process. Callista, with her previous experience at the Fairmont, was such an asset for these aspects. She knows the property and staff so well and was able to help facilitate all the logistical and planning details, which took a large burden off of us in dealing with these stressors. I cannot begin to express how grateful we are for Callista.

Callista is incredible. Period. Hire her. It will be the best decision you make. It certainly was ours. My (now) wife and I spent over a year planning our wedding weekend and Callista was there for us every step of the way. She is unbelievably responsive, overly generous with her time, extremely attentive to detail (just wait until you see her day-of timeline), incredibly well connected, tremendously knowledgeable and endlessly patient and supportive. Without a doubt, we can say that thanks to Callista our wedding day was perfect and we are so grateful to her. Callista provided so much more value than I ever thought possible and we couldn’t have planned our wedding without her. We will ALWAYS refer her to our friends, families, and loved ones in need of her wedding planning services and, personally, we can’t wait to work with her again for planning other events in our future! Thank you, yet again, Callista!!

Callista and her team were my saving grace! She was extremely helpful in all my wedding and bridal needs. From the first time my husband and I sat down with her we knew we were in GREAT hands. Anytime I had any questions, serious or silly ones, she was always a phone call or email away and she always knew how to calm my nerves, questions, concerns and was able to do so in a way that made me feel at ease. My wedding was a hit and exactly (and more) then I ever could have imagined and I owe it all to her. Her vision met mine and she really knew what I was going for and read my mind. I cannot be more grateful or appreciative for her hard and diligent work. She made my special day absolutely beautiful and beyond my wildest dreams.

Callista is an amazing wedding planner. She truly went above and beyond my expectations. She let me have my creative freedom while also helping my dreams become a reality. If there was something that I wanted but was it not possible, she quickly offered another solution and ensured that I was happy with every aspect. She was also very organized and on top of deadlines, taking the pressure off of me to keep track of everything. Another aspect that I loved about working with Callista was her willingness to help me plan my wedding while I lived in another state. My wedding was in Malibu but I was planning it from Phoenix, she did a great job communicating with me long distance and truly capturing my vision. I would highly recommend her and I am so very happy with my decision to hire her as my planner.
