“Davia is a rockstar! From her amazing relationships with trusted vendors, to her calm demeanor throughout the entire process and day of, Davia is everything you could want in a planner and more! She listened to our wants and needs and was always on our side. Davia became so much more than a planner throughout the process, she became a friend and is the reason we were so relaxed the entire weekend! She took the time to get to know us as individuals, and was always available to answer any questions, big or small. I will never forget the feeling of walking into our tent reception for the first time (before anyone saw it) and gasping at how incredible everything looked. It was more than anything I could have ever imagined and was so ‘us’. Every little detail was thought of and made our wedding feel so personalized and special.
My bustle broke during our reception, and before I knew it Davia was sewing my train up to my dress – she is truly incredible! If you are thinking of booking Davia, JUST DO IT! She will be your biggest supporter, advocate, and will make the entire process stress free. I consider myself to be a bit of a control freak and Davia was so on top of everything, she relieved any nerves I had about the weekend. And to no surprise, the day went perfectly and our guests were raving about how much fun they had. Thank you for everything and for helping create the absolute best day of our lives! We are forever grateful.”Alexandra Skavdahl
“I don’t know how she does it but Davia makes everything look effortless and it all runs so smoothly!!! The wedding went off without a hitch and our guests said it was the most magical and beautiful wedding they had ever been to. The wedding was in Santa Ynez Valley, I live in Orange County, and my daughter lives in San Francisco so the majority of the arrangements were done by calls and emails. Davia responded quickly to any questions we had even if it was very late at night!! She was extremely professional and calm throughout the entire planning process and then was such a mellow influence the day of the wedding. Vendors raved about her, had complete confidence in her and shared with us how she is able to be the picture of calm even in the middle of the day of activities. The wedding turned out spectacular and more beautiful ( and fun) than we could have ever imagined. My daughter was overjoyed with how beautiful and perfectly executed it was. Davia helped us with vendors, style and her own personal sense of design was also extremely welcome and appreciated. We had so much fun working with her and she takes on all the burden of the details, timing, dealing with vendors, when payments are due etc. Davia is extremely organized yet so creative too. She is the best! We became friends with her through this process and are so happy we chose her as our planner. Wish we could do it all again, we miss her!!”Sandra Kaslow
“Looking back at our wedding planning, we could not imagine this process without Davia (or anyone else for that matter). After my husband and I narrowed down a few potential wedding venues in the Santa Barbara area, we began looking for a wedding planner. I scheduled a phone call with Davia and we hit it off right away.
We had many ideas throughout our planning process and Davia explored every option with us. She helped streamline our ideas and weighed the pros and cons of each concept when we could not decide. As we live in Los Angeles and our wedding venue was in Santa Ynez, it was extremely helpful to have Davia’s recommendation of vendors in the area – all of them were top notch and incredibly talented and nice people.
Once we had narrowed down all of our ideas for the wedding, Davia put together a detailed design proposal – a summary of every idea we conceptualized (from the overall look and feel of the wedding to the items we would have in our welcome baskets). She made various iterations of our wedding layout so that we can be comfortable with all the logistics of the wedding day.
Davia is resourceful, organized, and extremely talented. We are so thankful to have met Davia and have had the absolute pleasure of having her as our wedding planner and now a friend.”Rebecca Sheng
“Davia was our peace of mind, an ear to listen and a collaborator to all of our ideas. I knew when we started planning our wedding the only way I would trust anyone besides myself to run the show was if Davia was running it. Davia has so much talent & pulled everything together more perfectly than I could have ever imagined. My favorite part of the day was the reception being such a surprise & when we finally to to have a moment to see everything set up, I couldn’t help but run to Davia and give her the biggest hug & cry happy tears. Everything was perfect beyond imagination!
Davia took my breath away with the floral details. She made my flower dreams come true! Davia’s florals were the special touch that made the wedding more beautiful than I could have imagined! My favorite detail, besides my bouquet, would have to be the head table-every aspect and detail was perfectly thought out and beyond creative!
I absolutely loved the balloons and tassels behind our sweetheart table that she made for us. They were adorable and a complete surprise! She was so creative in adding so many special touches.
One of the best parts of the wedding and favorite parts about Davia is that after the wedding everyone kept telling me how wonderful the day was and how relaxed my planner was, they thought everything went perfectly smooth and I know that is because of Davia and it gave Garrett & I time to take it all in!
Davia made our day perfect-to say the least!”Wendy Twist
“Hiring Davia was one of the best decisions we could have made with regards to our wedding! I’m not one of those women that had been planning their wedding their entire life (not a knock to anyone that has). Truthfully I didn’t even know if I wanted to get married and if I did, I thought maybe I’d want a small, simple ceremony. Then it happened. I met Chris, my now husband and after a few years we both decided marriage was for us. And with that we decided we wanted to have a ceremony to celebrate our union as well as all of the special people in our lives. Davia made this a reality.
I had some ideas and visions and she was able to make them happen and the end product was amazing. Multiple guests commented on the ambiance of our wedding from details such as the flowers to the stunning reception room transformation.
Throughout the process Davia was calm, professional and available. Everyone would ask, “Aren’t you stressed, your wedding is a few months/weeks/days away?” The process wasn’t stressful because of Davia and to me that is worth its weight in gold. If you are looking for a professional, sweet, honest, genuine and amazing wedding planner then look no further. Davia is all of those things and more!”Monica Turner
“From the beginning, Davia took the time to get to know us both and was readily available whenever we had questions or concerns. She paid close attention to detail and came up with beautiful, unique suggestions based off of our wedding vision. It was such a fun process planning with Davia and we were lucky enough to have found her. When our special day came (after only six short months), the wedding ceremony and reception was flawless. It was everything my husband and I could have ever dreamed of having – a romantic, intimate gathering among close friends and family on top of beautiful Figueroa Mountain. Thank you, Davia, for becoming a part of our lives and for giving us the most incredible weekend to remember! Even after our wedding, we still keep in contact with Davia. We had a perfect wedding day, and gained a beautiful friend.”Anne Rioux
“Thank you so much for creating the perfect Los Olivos, CA wedding weekend for our daughter and her new husband! With only six months to plan the wedding from the east coast, we were blessed to find a planner who could take care of everything for us. With you, we got all of that and much more. You planned their wedding as if it were your own – with a blend of warmth and professionalism. We enjoyed a fun day before the wedding filled with a lovely rustic garden bridal brunch and afternoon of wine tasting at several local vineyards. Our daughter selected a remote and breathtaking venue on top of a mountain for her wedding. When we arrived, the entire property was transformed into a beautiful rustic oasis. As the sun set over the mountains, the mountain property twinkled with little white lights and happy music. Your attention to detail was outstanding. Your recommendations of photographer, caterer, make-up, musicians etc were superb and we would highly recommend each of them to others. Thank you for helping us to stay close to our budget and for the gentle reminders to stay ahead in the planning. Davia, we cannot express enough our sincere gratitude for all you did to create such a special wedding weekend for our family.”Cathy Thompson
“AMAZING!!!! I can’t say enough good things about Davia! She is truly fabulous and was such a joy to work with throughout our wedding process. We hired Davia a bit over a year before our date. Right away, she was very proactive helping us think through our vendor options and making sure we stay on track with our to-dos. She gave us guidance every step of the way and made us feel so comfortable. She is the most responsive person in the entire world! Also, she gives incredible and well thought out advice while still letting you make your own choices. She also had fabulous taste and an eye for design. And at the same time, she is super organized! She is a complete lifesaver and I would have been so lost without her! Thank you for putting up with me Davia! We love you!”Teresa Fisher
“Planning a wedding is definitely not an easy thing to do, and in our case we only had a few months to do so. Hiring Davia was the best decision we could’ve made. From beginning, she guided us through each important decisions. She worked extremely well with our creative needs, but also logistically handled all the details that we often times overlooked to ensure that the day would be flawless. She was extremely patient during the times when we were unsure about what we wanted and helped us to be confident that we were making the right decisions; and when it came down to getting things done, she was always on top of everything.
The best thing about Davia is that she always looked out for our best interest. She made sure that we had the best possible team for us. She always made sure that we were moving forward with our dreams and visions for our wedding and always started everything off with our best interest in hand up throughout the whole planning process. She was so professional and helpful that she even sat down with our vendors that needed final payments the day of the wedding and double checked them & made sure to be on site the morning following the wedding to ensure nothing was left behind and see us off! At the end of the day if you want to be given you peace of mind knowing that someone has your best interest at heart, Davia is the one for you. She is a great person, with a great heart and from the moment you meet her you will know what I am talking about.”Lisa Tome
“Davia Lee is amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner. She was so extremely patient with me, which is surprising because I wasn’t even patient with myself. I think I changed my mind ten different times on how we were going to do the wedding: winery, small venue, vegas, indoors, outdoors – you name it, I wanted it at some point. She was up for any and all of it. Once we finally nailed down the idea that we were going to have a small wedding at my fiance’s parents home, she nailed it. Our wedding was EXACTLY how I imagined it. I am sure I’m not super easy to work with, I have to have my hand in everything or I freak out – so to be able to say that the way I told Davia I wanted everything to work out actually happened makes me super happy. Davia is amazing, she can make anything beautiful. From the bouquets, to the centerpieces, to the ceremony arbor, to the aisle decorations – they were absolutely stunning. We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect flower set up, it was magical. She really is the best wedding planner we could have ever asked for. If anyone asks me for a recommendation, I would only suggest they work with Davia Lee Events!!”Tawnee Armenta
“Davia was exactly the wedding planner we were looking for our wedding. We had a vision for our summer wedding and Davia helped make that come true for us. Davia was very professional and had a variety of resources and recommendations for vendors in ourarea. From the moment we had our first meeting with Davia I knew we had found the right person to help us create the wedding of our dreams. She was very responsive to emails and even last minute text messaging throughout the entire planning process, she was so easy to get a hold of. She helped us plan out a timeline and helped us keep track of our wedding budget, the timeline was detailed and she was great at communicating with other vendors to make sure everything was in place for the ceremony & reception. The day of the wedding was so stress-free for both of us, Davia and her team set-up everything from the ceremony to the reception so perfectly. Davia and her team truly helped make our day so much easier for us. We were able to enjoy our special day without any worry, Davia Lee McNamara was an absolute blessing! Thank you!!!”Andrea Hollister
“Davia did such an incredible job with our wedding. She was up for the challenge and created the wedding of our dreams. She really took the time to get to know us and truly understand what we wanted. Every email and phone conversation I had with her was filled with great ideas. She thinks all about the little things and kept the whole planning process on track. Davia’s demeanor is quite relaxed which really helped me to calm down and not stress throughout the whole process. Although she seems quite relaxed she is very on top of everything and organized. Davia is so creative with design which attributed to a very unique and personal feel at our wedding. These qualities in her make her absolutely perfect for her profession. I had complete trust in her abilities as a coordinator and designer which allowed me to enjoy the day of the wedding. Davia is amazing alone but with the rest of her team Davia Lee Wedding and Events is a hit! Her team was able to construct a fabulous wedding alter for our beachside wedding. It was the highlight of our wedding and all of our guests were raving about it and I was completely in love with it. The set up and coordination the day of was flawless. Without Davia and her team our wedding wouldn’t have been the absolutely perfect day that it was. She really brought the vision of our wedding to life. We are so happy and grateful that we had her as our wedding planner.”Amanda Babineaux
