“Sometimes the right person comes along at the right time for all the right reasons–such was the case with my husband…AND COASTLYE EVENTS! The day of planner we had planned to hire ended up moving away and into our lap fell Jillian, the best choice we made throughout the entire planning process.
Originally I had planned to do much of the floral, decorating, and other things “DIY”. But, as it turned out, the throes of our wedding planning came when I started a new job and had to leave all the planning I had started in my fiance and Jillian’s hands. We shared some ideas with Jillian and she enhanced them to make them a reality AND even better than we imagined. She also stepped up to be our florist extraordinaire, creating beautiful succulent and floral creations. When we walked into our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception last weekend, we were literally blown away with how breathtaking everything looked.
Throughout the entire process, Jillian was always calm, organized, budget conscious (at our request) and best of all, a true partner who honestly treated our wedding weekend as if it was her own. She went well above and beyond her Day of Coordinator responsibilities, and for that we are extremely grateful.
We’ve heard nothing but raves since our wedding last weekend and that can mean one of two things:
1. If there actually were any hiccups (which is doubtful given their organization), Jillian and Ashley did a TERRIFIC job to problem-solve on the spot so that neither we nor the guests knew anything otherwise :)…
2. Everything was actually as fun, beautiful and awesome as we hoped, thanks in huge part to Ashley and Jillian’s expertise, talent, and professionalism. They are a dream team!
Coastyle Events is the #1 partner I would suggest to any upcoming brides…they’ll be your other “perfect match” that weekend.”
I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley when she was still working for the San Diego Botanic Gardens, which was the first and only location my fiance and I looked at when we started the wedding planning process in the fall of 2013. Ashley was kind and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions as we toured the site. I have been a bridesmaid many times, and learned that a day of coordinator is a necessity for a stress free wedding. I asked Ashley for a referral and it just so happened that she was starting Coastyle Events with Jillian. I was sold.
A few weeks later I met them in their Banker’s Hill studio – utterly adorable by the way – for a consultation. I went in thinking that all I wanted was to book their day of coordination services, but by the end of our conversation, I knew I needed their vision to help me pull off all the ideas swimming around in my head. I booked the month of coordination package and could not be happier with my decision. Ashley was open to emails and questions I had before our wedding month arrived. I would shoot an email asking for her thoughts on timelines and contract terms for vendors I was working with. She was always incredibly helpful and gracious in our conversations. From the beginning, I had a clearer idea of how I wanted to day to feel, and was less sure about how I wanted it to look. Ashley was able to translate all my thoughts into an absolutely stunning day that felt like us. We ended up signing with Coastyle to provide all florals and linens for our big day as well, and Jillian did a beautiful job of creating exactly what we wanted: a clean, understated floral style that didn’t compete with the natural beauty of the Botanic Gardens.
The morning of the wedding, I was relaxed and calm as I knew Ashley and her team had everything under control. We were provided with detailed timelines in advance of our big day so everyone was on the same page. Ashley coordinated all the final vendor communications, deliveries and payments so we could enjoy the day and not worry about a thing. Both my hair and make up artist and our ceremony officiant were booked after glowing referrals from the Coastyle ladies, and I was so happy with both. Our wedding day was absolutely everything we ever could have hoped for and more. I didn’t find out until the next day about a snag at the bar that could have led to us running through the alcohol we purchased before the end of our reception. Ashley went way above the call of duty to ensure this didn’t happen, and I can’t thank her enough.
All our guests continue sharing how beautiful the site looked, how relaxed we both were, and how the whole day felt just like us. What better compliments could you ask for? I credit Ashley, Jillian and their team at Coastyle for bringing our day to life. I have referred them to several newly engaged friends and will continue to do so.”
“I spoke and meet with many different event planning companies. I spent hours, days, and what felt like weeks trying to find someone who I felt comfortable with running such an important day in my life. I was very particular with what I was looking for, I had the vision I just needed to find the person to put it all together. From the initial meeting I knew Ashley was the one I needed working on my wedding. Unlike other companies I instantly felt comfortable. She not only listened to what I wanted but had questions to further understand exactly what I wanted. She was quick to get the paperwork and a quote back to me. Her professionalism during the planning of the wedding, running the rehearsal and wedding was superb. If you are looking for an event planner or can’t decide if you need one I highly recommend Coastyle Events. If you have the right people working for you it is truly amazing to see everything come together right before your eyes!”
“Jillian was the coordinator for my wedding Sept 7, 2013. I tell everyone she saved my life. SHE DID. I had no idea what I was doing when we started planning a wedding. Jillian took all my dreams, and budget, and made it a reality. We had the best wedding. She made it possible. She hooked me up with a great photographer, videographer, and linen vendor. On top of it all, she designed my invitations and Thank You cards. She answered every email and text almost immediately. My family was so grateful for all of her work on such a special day. I recommend her and Coastyle Events every chance I get. I’m incredibly thankful!”
“The most magical day of our lives.
I know that sounds a wee-bit cheesy, but it truly was the most amazing day, part of which is a big thanks to Coastyle Events. I had the pleasure of working with both Jillian and Ashley for all of my wedding festivities. Jillian set the tone during our Rehearsal Dinner at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar. The drinks, food, music, details did not miss a beat. Beautiful, almost mini wedding that got all of our guests jazzed for the big day.
Ashley led the main event and I did not make it easy for her. Many-a-moving pieces with my multiple vendors, bands, family singers, decor, and pret-ty consistent indecision on details. Took it like a champ:) both my husband and I felt like we were in a dream, the day was so incredible.
Both Ashley and Jillian know the ins-and-outs of San Diego vendors and work with you to down to the last minute of your wedding to ensure all has gone better than planned.”
“Coastyle Events is amazing!!! Ashley and Jillian are the consummate professionals. Ashley was our head wedding planner and Jillian assisted and also did our beautiful flowers. From the moment we met them, we absolutely trusted their expertise, experience, and taste. Leading up to the wedding they happily met with us three times and met at the venue twice, as well as being completely available to answer any questions and give recommendations. The day of, we did not have to worry about anything. We also had a complicated venue, with many different vendors. Ashley lead her team effortlessly without one hiccup. Ashley and Jillian, thank you for making my dream wedding come true! I highly recommend Coaststyle Events to any bride!”
“We hired Ashley as our month and day-of wedding coordinator and she was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. I basically did all the planning in regard to hiring vendors, etc. and once I realized all that goes into the set-up, coordination, and breakdown I set out to hire a wedding coordinator and I am so, so incredibly glad I stumbled upon Ashley. She coordinated with all of my vendors leading up to our big day, had an extremely detailed timeline, helped set-up everything, and break it down at the end of the night. When I would email / call her she was extremely responsive, and she also brought along two assistants to help the process run smoothly. Ashley also helped bring all of our wedding flowers to my parents’ house for our Sunday brunch the next day, and even helped my mom set-up them up which was above and beyond. I don’t have enough great things to say about Ashley and Coastyle Events – they helped make our day perfect. Thanks again Ashley !!!!”
“We hired Coastyle Events for our wedding on Oct 12, 2013 and were extremely satisfied with the results. Ashley did an amazing job with the coordination and Jillian with the beautiful flowers. There were two major issues with the wedding dresses and didn’t get the dress until 6 days before the wedding. Ashley & Jillian were both very supportive and accompanied with me a few weeks before the wedding in search for the perfect backup dress. With their assistance, the dress turned out perfect and my husband was saved from not seeing me turn into a bridezilla. They both worked great together and excellent communication. We wish we could have spent more time on the wedding day looking at the flowers, but after looking at the wedding pictures we can see how much detail and time went into the arrangements. Absolutely beautiful! Ashley surprised us and even prepared the room with a romantic flower path. The attention to detail throughout the planning process and wedding day went above and beyond our expectations. We wouldn’t change anything with our wedding day, besides one bridesmaid, and we’re so happy we went with Coastyle Events!”
