Completely professional and great from start to finish. Francine is the consummate professional who knows what she's doing. She was responsive and always there (through final breakdown at the event site the night of the wedding). Thank you for a wonderful event at La Valencia on September 30.

Suher- I can't thank you enough for all of the hard work you put in to make my dream wedding come to life. You were so amazing during all of the planning from the rental company recommendations to the late night emails and texts. I truly felt like you had our best interest in mind. Thank you for making my wedding day even more beautiful than I could've imagined. I felt 100% stress-free thanks to your detailed timeline and organization during the rehearsal. You allowed me to enjoy our day to the fullest. Any bride would be lucky to have you as their planner. Love, Michelle and Joseph 12/9/2017 @ The Darlington House

Oh, Francine. Little did I know that signing up for a planner would include so much more. Throughout the entire process, ​Francine was on "my team" whether it was the social-emotional support needed to get through the stress of planning from afar (We live in Virginia and got married in Santa Barbara), the regular stress of simply making so many more decisions than I ever dreamed possible, keeping me focused and on task with the ever-growing to-do list and consistently reminding me of the true focus of our wedding- our wedding. From her exceptional ability to predict, problem solve and manage- she anticipated our needs, as well as those of our vendors and guests and had a seamless manner in managing them. She was true to her word that our day was left for us to enjoy and if things went wrong, I still have no idea about them. Besides making a potential​ neurosis-inducing event, relatively stress-free​, Francine and her team made our event immaculate​. I'm sure like many brides, I struggled to articulate the vision I had for our wedding and communicating that to vendors (in writing especially since we weren't able to meet in person). However, Francine and her design team were able to help me put to words and images exactly what I was hoping for and delivered well above my wildest dreams when the​ day of came. To say my husband was nervous about our gray, white, gravel-floored​, bare-bones greenhouse wedding venue, was an understatement. How could something so drab be brought to life in the way we described and discussed in our preplanning calls. However, when the day arrived, his awe spoke for itself and he expressed many times over how grateful he was we had chosen the team that we did. Francine's thoughtful effort, genuine passion, creative perspective and professional diligence made planning a wedding across the country, on NYE (had not anticipated the challenges of planning around a holiday), and after the largest fires in California history, was a surprisingly smooth task. Her vendor suggestions, eye for detail, patience in dealing with my spontaneous waves of stress, suggestions, ideas and simply put, "ability to get things done"- I'd recommend​ her and her team in an instant.

This is LONG overdue but so well deserved. I met Suher in Fall 2016 and fell absolutely IN LOVE with her. At the end of our meeting I told her, I told her I loved her and she's hired! I passed up someone I knew personally, to hire Suher because I just had a really good feeling. She was just so detailed in everything she presented. To think that our meeting almost didn't happen is crazy! Suher went above and beyond my expectations. She had amazing vendor recommendations that fit my budget. And attended almost every meeting with me. Wow. I had to bring my kids with me to most meetings or meet at my house and she was just so understanding and patient throughout the entire process. She was so reassuring every step of the way. Helped me figure out what would and would not work. Answered all of my many emails and text messages (even at 10:00 at night when I have last minute ideas/additions two weeks out)!! We hosted our reception in my backyard and literally changed 2/3 of what was planned last minute. She was very patient with my last minute freak out about how many guests we were going to have in our backyard! To say she made it happen was an understatement. On the big day, I had NOTHING to worry about. Everything went so smoothly and perfect!!! My husband and family were so impressed! She 100% handled it!

My now husband and I absolutely loved working with Francine! We hired FRE for the full service planning and design and we are so happy that we did! From day 1, Francine was responsive, friendly and organized - which made us felt at ease since we were planning our San Diego wedding from San Francisco. I did not have have a vision in mind for the wedding, but with Francine's help, she designed a lovely garden themed wedding that was just amazing. All of our guests loved and raved about how elegant and beautiful the wedding was! I would work with Francine in a heartbeat and am so sad the wedding is over. I would recommend Francine to anyone that is planning a wedding or event in Southern California - she's one of a kind and such an amazing wedding partner with a great eye for design. You will not regret it! Thank you so much Francine!!!
