"Heidi caringly answered every panicked phone call and fielded all kinds of silly questions with ease. Heidi was exactly what I was looking for: a very professional, experienced, perceptive, warm and friendly event planner/coordinator who can efficiently manage all aspects of the wedding planning and day-of process."

"She made everything happen. She decorated the room so beautifully and I didn't have to worry about anything at all."

"Heidi was respectful of our budget, gave good advice, had great connections and was very flexible. She did a brilliant job with family members who barely get along."

"She was just so caring and always there to listen when I was having issues and getting completely stressed out."

"It was a beautiful experience working with Heidi. She did a wonderful job; we were 100% satisfied."

"I was so happy when we arrived at the reception site to see that everything was perfect, which was pretty amazing considering I had a very specific way that I wanted everything. Coastside Couture made it look EXACTLY how I had envisioned it."

"I was a long-distance bride and she was always available and willing to get things done without my being there."

"Heidi made us feel like she was just a close friend helping us plan our wedding and never let us get too stressed out. She had a very calming presence and were right-on with all of her vendor recommendations."
