Thank You Hana…

The best decision we made for our wedding this August 2014, was Hana of Venus Event Design.

I was so overwhelmed about all of the decisions and details for our wedding. I decided to give Hana a call based on several glowing recommendations. I am so glad I did!

First of all, I am not a designer or artist. I had some ideas of things I liked, but not a clear design. Hana took all of my ideas and created the most gorgeous wedding and reception I could have imagined. And she made it what I wanted, not what she wanted. She took my ideas and created a concept. It was like she was reading my mind.

Secondly, she made the planning process fun! It is so stressful to plan a wedding. But whenever any of my friends and colleagues asked how I was doing, I was surprisingly calm. Hana did EVERYTHING so I did not have to worry about anything. I am very OCD and usually have to-do lists and check boxes. But with Hana, I didn’t have to do any of that. She kept track of everything – finances, due dates, etc and kept me on track. She was in constant contact with me via phone and email – we must’ve talked almost every week! And she always returns your calls promptly.

Hana has exquisite professionalism. She never loses her cool – even with the most difficult vendors. Because of her pleasant and charming demeanor she has created so many great relationships with vendors in the business and can provide endless recommendations for vendors for anything. She is also willing to go out and there and research new ones if you aren’t happy with any of the options.

The day of the wedding came and I was so excited. Not stressed at all thanks to Hana. Perhaps I am biased, but it was absolutely the most beautiful wedding I have ever seen. We had so many compliments, and are still getting glowing reviews of the party.

I would recommend Hana for any event, especially weddings. I have been to several other parties done by Hana from work holiday parties to baby showers and she always does a beautiful job, all while keeping in your budget.

Do yourself a favor, and hire Hana for your event. I promise you won’t be sorry.

Hana did an unbelievably amazing job planning our July 2014 wedding from start to finish!

My now husband and I had a very rough and cloudy idea of how we wanted our wedding to look and we didn’t really know how to get started or how go about doing it.  Hana walked us through the process and made large tasks seem easy and doable, even for the two of us with very busy and constantly changing schedules.  She took a blurry idea and created into our perfect event, even though we didn’t really know what we wanted at the time.  Once she started working with us, our vision became a beautiful reality, which turned out to be the best day of our lives.  Hana took all of the things we said into consideration and created a wedding that was above and beyond anything we could have dreamed of or expected!

Hana was always very professional, organized and took the time to make sure even the smallest details were accounted for and were perfect come wedding day.  She had wonderful vendor suggestions and even though Hana hasn’t been at this for very long, the vendors and other professionals speak very highly of her and enjoy working with her.  She was great at finding the best deals while keeping our budget in mind along the way.  Hana is very good with her words and can articulate what she wants and needs in a clear and concise manner; she worked well with everyone she came in contact with.

Leading up to and on the wedding day, Hana made sure that I didn’t have a thing to worry about.  Hana and her day of assistant created a cool, calm environment, which was so refreshing and light that it allowed me not to worry about a single thing.  If something went wrong on our wedding day, we still don’t know about it because Hana and her assistant were there to take care of the problem and move on.  Our wedding day went off without a hitch and it’s all because of Hana; her preparation, organization and ability to work with everyone so easily allowed everything to turn out perfect!

I would highly recommend Venus Event Design to plan any event that you are organizing.  It is no coincidence that my husband and I gave Hana the nickname, “Hana the Great.”

We love Hana!

As a wedding vendor, I’ve worked with many event coordinators, and I have to say Hana of Venus Events is excellent. First of all, she’s really fun to work with. Her sweet and funny demeanor keeps everyone at ease. She’s a total professional in all aspects, while at the same time makes the planning process an enjoyable experience you look forward to. She matches her clients and vendors with everyone’s style and personality in mind so that everyone is happy. Then, on the day of… She prepares her vendors perfectly and is completely calm. She takes every issue that comes at her with total grace. Hana is a team player and will do whatever it takes to ensure you have a seamless and beautiful event. Her ability to stay calm and kind in every situation is priceless and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Let me start by saying Hana is amazing! Being the Mother of the Bride I cannot thank Hana enough for making my daughter’s day so special. She helped my daughter from start to finish leaving nothing to question. Down to every small detail she made the whole day spectacular. She is very caring, and puts everyone at ease. My daughter met and talked with Hana about what she liked and what her budget was. Hana was wonderful in suggesting ideas and negotiating with the vendors to fit our budget and vision. Hana was at the venue working from early morning to late in the evening way after the wedding was over doing an amazing job. She is very organized, very professional and very pleasant to work with. I would not hesitate in recommending Hana for any event as she is truly one of a kind! 
Hana, I love you and want to adopt you!

Patti Stockstill | 2014

Hana did an amazing job planning my wedding this past June.

She is great at communication, very organized, and willing to take on any task no matter how small to make your event perfect. All the vendors she proposed to me were very professional and excellent. She was great at negotiating and helping me to know what were fair prices for vendors of different services. She understood my budget and made sure to stay within it. She also suggested areas within my original budget where I could save money. Negotiating is another great skill she has with respect to vendor contracts.

She  leverages her knowledge to make sure you get an appropriate deal.  The wedding day she and her assistant made sure everything went smoothly without a hitch!

I highly recommend Hana and Venus Event Design.

Traci Y. | June 2014

Hana was essential in planning and organizing our wedding this past May. When we started planning, we had no idea what it would take to put together the event of our dreams. We soon discovered we were in over our heads, briefly panicked, and then were fortunate to find Hana.  She listened to our ideas and suggested options, introduced ideas, and addressed many details we had not even thought of. She was able to negotiate with vendors on our behalf and maintained communication with them throughout the planning process. She understood our expectations and was able to relay this to our vendors and insure everything was in place on our big day.

Hana is very organized, professional, and responsive. She was present throughout our entire wedding weekend and kept the entire event on task with her calm, pleasant presence. Her knowledge base and understanding of the entire process, from our first meeting to the day after our event, was invaluable. Our wedding was amazing and beautiful; the day exceeded my dreams and Hana was essential to this incredible day.  We can’t thank her enough and highly recommended Hana and Venus Event Design!

Melissa | May 2014

Hana helped me plan my big day from start to finish, and I couldn’t ask for a better helper! She was extremely organized, creative, and fun. She brought ideas to the table that I could never have though of on my own. She helped me choose a location, find vendors (I never would have known where to start), and assured that everything went with our theme. She calmed me when I felt overwhelmed, and was extremely patient when I changed my mind at the last minute. She is easy to contact, very professional, and happy to help.

On the day of the wedding, I didn’t have to worry about a thing! I even sat and put together a puzzle for an hour! They say things will go wrong on your wedding day and you just have to accept it.. Well, not a single thing went wrong at ours, and we get told often how beautiful and fun the day was. I am so thankful that Venus Event Design was there to coordinate, and I don’t know what I would have done without her. I highly recommend utilizing Hana, and can assure that she will create a romantic, exciting, beautiful, and memorable day for you and your soon to be spouse. I can’t want until be start having babies so we can hire her for our showers!

Dana Wong | October 2013

We loved working with Hana!

Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Such a magical, blissful, wonderful experience, and this is in great thanks to Hana. Every nook and cranny of our venue was filled with her creative touch. She really worked with us to develop and capture the feel that we wanted for our wedding. She was so great in bearing with the back and forth in all details of the wedding and did a superb job researching and negotiating vendors to fit our budget and vision. We couldn’t be happier and more thankful!! I feel like I gained a friend in her in the process and wedding planning trenches!

Erin Vaughen Hylnsky | September 2013

Hana, from Venus Event Design, made our dream wedding come true.  She was like my Fairy Godmother and I felt like Cinderella on my wedding day. Event planning is truly her passion and it translates beautifully in her work.

Hana came highly recommended from a friend of mine, who was also planning a wedding. My friend told me that she made the wedding planning process stress free and fun. With my husband’s demanding schedule and having my family in another state, I knew I needed all the help possible.

Before Hana came on, I had no idea where to start. Researching how to plan a wedding made me immediately overwhelmed. According to on-line resources I was already behind schedule. Hana, was able to calm my nerves and just focus on one thing at a time. I knew she was planning her own wedding and other weddings at the same time, but she always made me feel like my wedding was the only one she was planning. I never felt like I was on the back burner. She was always available to answer my questions about vendors or just general wedding questions. She is also very organized, which is a quality I lack.

Since my husband and I were paying for our own wedding cost was a big priority to our planning. She provided us with vendors that gave us the best quality without the very high costs. Hana knows how to speak wedding, and she would ask questions to vendors that I would never think of asking. She was able to take the pressure off of us by dealing with the vendor contracts. In the end she was able to save us money so we could use it on elements we wanted, but didn’t think we could afford.

Finally, on the week of our wedding, I was able to enjoy time with my family that had come from out of town. It was truly a stress free time. Even the day of our wedding was so calm. Everything went off without a hitch. My husband and I truly had our fairytale wedding. We can’t thank Hana and her team enough for making our day the best day of our lives.

Kristina Granados Mendoza | May 2015

Venus Event Design and their full service wedding coordination was absolutely the best wedding decision we made!  My husband and I immediately connected with Hana and her sweet, kind personality and we knew that she would be the one to pull off our dream wedding.  Hana did so much more than that!  She kept us on schedule and made sure we were accomplishing planning tasks on a timeline that was comfortable for us and our budget.  Hana researched and negotiated with vendors so that we had several options in each category of importance (flowers, music, linens, etc.) and helped us make our final decisions based on past experience and vendors who matched our personalities and wedding vision.

I pictured what my dream wedding would look like, and I never imagined it would come true and actually be my wedding.  Hana took my dream wedding vision and absolutely exceeded every single expectation.  I still cannot believe that that wedding was ours!!  In speaking with our guests the weeks after our wedding, we have received hundreds of compliments that our wedding was the most gorgeous, elegant, classic, detail oriented wedding they had ever been to!  What a compliment!  Our wedding screamed both mine and my husbands personalities from top to bottom, and it was really, really special.

For brides out there planning your wedding, a wedding coordinator is 100% the best decision you will make.  Having Venus Event Design meant that my husband and I actually got to enjoy every single detail of our wedding and spend time with our guests!  The planning can take as long as you’d like, but the wedding weekend/day absolutely flies by.  Make sure you enjoy every piece of it!

Thank you Hana and Venus Event Design!!!  You are truly an incredible event planner and a beautiful person inside and out!!  Don’t know what we would have done without you.

Ashley Osak | July 2015

Hana made our wedding day truly special and headache free.  Even when things got intense, she was a picture of calm and serenity, which helped my husband and I relax and enjoy our day. She went beyond the call of duty and followed up with us after the wedding to see how we are doing.  I HIGHLY recommend her and her wonderful staff at Venus Event Design.

Bahar Reghabi | August 2015

I can’t recommend Hana and Venus Event Design enough.  I don’t even know where to begin – Hana was so fantastic.

I wanted to play a big part in planning details of my wedding, and Hana did an outstanding job of making sure I was staying on track while still letting me DIY, and was very helpful in pointing out what was and was not reasonable to do myself. And when it came to the week and day of the wedding, although I am the type of person who has trouble ceding control, Hana is one of the few people who defies the saying “if you want something done right, do it yourself”- I trusted her completely to execute what we had planned together.

When things went slightly awry as they inevitable do, and Hana not only handled them but made sure I didn’t find out until after they were resolved. Her assistant was wonderful.  She was flexible when I asked at the last minute to reschedule meetings… I could go on and on.

With only a four month engagement, Hana helped me and my fiancé execute an amazing wedding that we could not have fonder memories of.  I can’t wait to recommend her to friends and co-workers.

Irmina Gawlas (Elliott) | New Year’s Eve 2015

Hana handled our daughter’s wedding, who lives in New York but got married in Laguna Beach. Hana handled every item from start to finish, flawlessly. When it was all over, and it goes by in a flash, my wife and I would not have changed one thing. She and her team attended to every detail. Her assistant Maria was fantastic. They pulled off an incredible wedding, and really stayed behind the scenes. Thank you Hana for all that you did to make our daughters special day truly special.

Bob Miller | 2016

Simply the best!  We just got married this past weekend and Hana planned our wedding!  She was a week/day of coordinator but got so much more involved than that!  She was beyond helpful.  Our wedding went so smoothly – not one bump!!!!  It was my dream wedding and she really listened, made sure we didn’t have to worry about anything and made sure to be in touch with all vendors at all times.  We can’t thank Hana enough!  Her assistant was so sweet and AMAZING too – seriously made me feel so less stressed!  I definitely recommend them for your wedding or party!!!

Danielle Cuccio | August 2016

Hana made our wedding dreams come true! We hired her for our month of coordinator and she was nothing short of amazing. She is a great communicator, very organized, has a fantastic eye for design and has impeccable attention to detail. She took my ideas and made them even better than I imagined. I had something tragic happen on my wedding day and she was able to clam me down and keep me focused on my big day. She was extremely easy to work with and very professional. All of my vendors and family gave me so many compliments on how great she was to work with. One thing that I really loved was that my husband and I did not have to worry about anything but having a great time during the wedding, she took care of everything. We cannot recommend Hana and her team at Venus Event Designs enough!

Keli R. | July 2016

Hana is amazing! I can’t thank her enough for the fabulous job she did in planning and coordinating my baby shower. She arranged an amazing photographer and caterer as well. Every detail was perfect and beautiful! The baby shower took place in my building’s community room and she was able to transform the plain space into a gorgeous venue. I was in shock!. My guests are still talking about the event to this day! So grateful for the wonderful memories she created for me and my baby girl.

Gabriela Rubio Mendoza | 2013

Hana is a consummate professional!  At a recent wedding she impressed me with her organization, her attention to detail, her punctuality, her can-do attitude, and her ability to get things done!  I would completely recommend Hana at Venus Events to anyone looking to organize any event.  She is THE BEST!!  Great job, Hana!

Patricia, Manhattan Village Florist | June 2013

I hired Venus Event Design for help in planning my wedding this past June. Hana, the owner and wedding coordinator, one of the most organized people I know who can be trusted to cover all the bases, she’s also very conscientious in everything she does, and very pleasant to work with.

We had less than 6 months to plan my wedding (for 200 guests) and with all the added details that Hana recommended, our wedding was beautiful, on schedule, and felt intimate. More importantly it was all kept within budget (which she respected) and she did an amazing job making all my concepts come together with flair.

Since I had so much going on in my life, Hana created a personalized week by week checklist of what I need to do prior to my wedding date and followed up with me regularly to make sure I created a guest list, bought my dress, sent invitations on time, etc. When we were looking around for musicians and bands, she took time out of her evenings to come along with us and asked them important questions that I didn’t even think of.  She went above and beyond what was excepted!

Hana is so many wonderful things and absolutely a good investment in ensuring your event is a success. I’ve recommended her to everyone and will definitely get her on board for my next small and big party!

Ann Kim | June 2013

I volunteered to have the company Christmas party at my house this last December and Hana volunteered her company, Venus Event Design to transform my home for the event. From beginning to end Hana was the epitome of professionalism and grace. She worked around my schedule sometimes making multiple trips to my home in a day with different vendors to evaluate the back yard, always taking care not to disturb or disrupt my schedule.

She is a fierce negotiator and was always able to stretch every dollar to its limit.  She wisely chose to tent my entire yard in case of rain (which it did on party day!) produced an elegant venue replete with decorations, candles, tables, and displays of her own unique creation.  She turned ordinary glass vases and christmas lights into brilliant table decorations, and wrapped empty boxes in holiday wrapping to create a colorful base for our potluck dishes. She put together a program of music, dance, entertainment, and Santa arriving for the kids in a sports-car through the back gate to give presents to the children. Her friends and colleagues were ultimate professionals working as bartenders, greeters, Santa, and we had our own DJ. My backyard was a combination of an opulent dinner party, chic Hollywood bar, and dance club rolled into one. At the end of the party she presented me with a beautiful framed wall hanging with photos of my four dogs that she had taken with her fancy camera. She spent many days at my house while I was away working on the party amongst my pack of dogs!

After the party she made sure I didn’t have any unnecessary clean up and offered to return when the company came to take down the tent – supervising everything to the end. Hana has a true gift with design, with people, with negotiating, and always with a smile and a cheerful attitude.  I would trust Hana with any celebration big or small – she does it all!

Sue Runyon | December 2013

Hana coordinated my friend’s wedding and she did a fantastic job! Being a guest at the wedding, I felt like everything went so smoothly. Every detail was perfect, the decorations, flowers, schedule of event etc… just flowed so well. The wedding was gorgeous, and being that there were a lot of guests, it still felt very cozy. I would definitely recommend her to friends and use her in the future for my own parties. My friend (the bride) was also very happy with her… which is the most important thing! I wish she was doing planning back when I got married, I would have definitely loved to have worked with her and have her help design my wedding!

Nancy P. | July 2013

Hope the rest of the wedding went as beautifully as the first 2 hours we enjoyed in your capable hands. A huge thank you from me also for all your coordinating efforts…. which made our job easy. I have to second the thoughts of how calm you were, which of course puts everyone else at ease!! It was really wonderful working with you, from the very first email we received from you.

Carol Roe, Aurora Ensemble | 2013

As an audio visual manager, with over a decade of experience in the industry on the west coast I have worked with countless meeting, wedding and event planners. Hana is professional, organized, flexible, creative and above all else communicates her needs clearly. The result is an outstanding event with no surprises. I look forward to having the opportunity to partner with Venus Event Design again soon!

Nathaniel | 2013

Hana is a consummate professional! She took on my event planning with only 3 weeks and did an AMAZING job!  She came to me with lots of questions of my likes and wishes. We met in person and communicated on the phone and via email.

I had a Big Birthday party and she brought everything together – coordinated the caterer and bartender, the rentals, the florist and the gaming table (I had a vegas night) including the dealers.\

It was the event of the year as told to me by many of my guests! Hana is a hard worker and a great communicator. Thank you Hana!

Sanae Garcia

Where do I begin with my review for Hana, owner of Venus Event Design!? To put it simply, she made our dream wedding a reality. From the minute we were introduced, we knew we were in good hands as Hana was warm and friendly from the get-go. From the start, she was interested in getting to know my fiancée and I and our story so that she could help build upon the vision we had for our special day.

After Hana helped me hone in on the true aesthetic for our event (as I was an overly Pinterestly active bride and had ideas jumping all over the place…) she connected me with multiple vendors that were a fit for the vibe as well as for our budget so that we could then decide who was the best option.

A little background on the aesthetic Hana helped me fine tune — we did an all outdoor wedding at a vineyard. EVERYTHING needed to be coordinated, nothing was included with the venue rental so Hana was extremely helpful seeing as we had to source everything from the basic rentals (chairs/tables/glassware), to more design based pieces like vintage furniture. Hana kept myself and my mom at ease as the wedding day approached as she was meticulously organized, calm and collected and had all bases covered that we would have never thought of had we gone it alone to organize the wedding ourselves.

With so many moving pieces going into the day and so many vendors involved, Hana served as an amazing liaison as my family and I didn’t know how to handle the “hard conversations” regarding negotiations with quotes, when contracts seemed a bit fuzzy or any general bump in the road (let’s be real, it’s inevitable to hit a few when you’ve been planning a wedding for over a year like me!)

I could go on and on, but to sum it up, Hana is so sweet, she made herself available on email and phone far more than any other planner’s packages I’d previously seen, she’s tough as nails with vendors so we were sure to get the best pricing possible and she knows her stuff!! We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Cara Ramer | September 2014

Hana exceeded all expectations! We brought Hana on board late in our planning (about 6 months before the wedding) to help in securing a few more vendors we needed and for the month-of. Once on board, Hana quickly helped to negotiate and secure the DJ and cake/dessert vendors. Also, she gladly took initiative to immediately take over communication with ALL of our vendors. Wow, what great help (and relief) that was!!!

Our wedding was outdoors at a private residence in Malibu, CA and it involved a very unique process, which included specific venue guidelines and restrictions along with working with specific vendors required by the venue. All of this entailed an abundance of time and effort on her part and she took on the tasks like a trooper. Her execution leading into the day-of to meet the venue’s expectations was superb. She also helped in further negotiations with the venue’s catering, which saved us a bundle! Even the owner of the venue grew to love Hana and her work.

There’s many aspects that sets her apart from other wedding coordinators/planners, but one that out shines is that she is genuinely passionate about weddings and what she does. You can see that reflect in her work and work style. She has a very calm and poised demeanor and all vendors enjoy working with her. More importantly, my husband and I LOVED working with her. Even when times felt a bit stressful, Hana’s great energy helped to ease the mood. I was an organized bride, but Hana’s very well organized so it was quite easy to put the trust in her from the beginning. She was amazing in addressing any questions or concerns very promptly. She was easily accessible and kept us well informed about our vendors. AND… Hana has a keen eye for design. Her taste and style is elegant, classy, and timeless. She helped so much in our design decisions to create the rustic-vintage-chic theme. It was on point!

Our venue’s logistics and property setting was very challenging because the grounds has multiple levels (and a heat wave happen to pass through L.A. that day) and her team did a heck of a job with those circumstances. Like I mentioned, her execution exceeded all expectations leading into and on the day-of. Her team took on all responsibilities and we didn’t have to worry about a single thing on the wedding day. I can’t tell you how grateful we are to be have been able to enjoy the big day because of it. I may be biased, but it truly was perfect and the “best day ever!”

We couldn’t have been happier with Hana! If I could do it all over again, there’s no doubt that Hana would be the first to call upon… from the start.

Lisa Choe | October 2014

As owner of Bear & Stone, I’ve worked with different event planners but working with Hana was truly amazing. She’s very calm and respect to others. Her understanding and attention to details is amazing, she see and fix things that most wouldn’t notice and that attention to the little things result in peace of mind for her clients. As in every event, issue and problem arise but her ability to roll with the punches, adapt quickly, and efficiently is brilliant! I think she really understand that you only get once chance at making the event perfect. Hana’s preparation, effort, communication skills, timing, and the ability to juggle and adapt to everything really makes it easier to strive and achieve perfection. One of the best and easiest events we have done, she’s also the nicest person ever… Just Amazing!

Rye, Bear & Stone | 2105

We own/operate a boutique catering company and we just wanted to share how amazing it was to work with Hana.

Let’s start by saying that she is one detailed coordinator!!! Large events like weddings have so many moving parts. There are various vendors involved and she did a great job making sure that everyone was on the same page.

Communication was excellent throughout the entire process. She had several events going on at the time but was always available to answer our questions. She responds quickly and we were impressed with the many creative solutions she came up with whenever there was an issue.

Her style when it comes to design is very creative and tasteful. She is also very professional, organized, and friendly. We’ve worked with many coordinators and Hana is The Creme of the Crop! Can’t wait to work with her again!!

My fiancé and I were introduced to Hana by one of her previous clients, a friend of ours.  We went to their wedding and were blown away with how beautiful everything was, the attention to detail and how smooth everything went.  We were so excited to meet with Hana and start planning our special day.

I am not your typical bride and did not have grand visions of what I wanted for my wedding.  I was also extremely overwhelmed by all the decisions to make. I knew the basic colors, flowers and location but that’s about it. From the very first meeting and every conversation after, Hana made sure she really got to know us so she could help execute the best wedding for us.  After extensive conversations, she set us up with amazing vendors, negotiated all of our contracts, and kept our payment schedule organized leading up to the wedding. The planners assigned to us at our venue were terrible at communication and made mistakes that Hana would step in and take care of throughout the planning process. She saved my fiancé and I from so many headaches and unnecessary stress.  We were truly able to enjoy the time leading up to our wedding because of her.

On the day of the wedding, Hana did such an amazing job at coordinating all the vendors, keeping us all on the timeline and checking in on us to make sure we had everything we needed.  She is truly a Zen master and made me so calm on the wedding day.  Because of her, the wedding was so smooth and went off without a hitch.

On top of her amazing organization, she had so many classy creative ideas on ways to personalize our wedding that I would have never thought of on my own. We were blown away with how beautiful everything looked and all of our guests were so impressed with the personal touches.

I am so thankful for having the chance to meet Hana and have her plan our wedding.  Not only does she love wedding planning, she has a true passion for every one of her clients and making their dream wedding come to life. Hiring her was the best decision we ever made!

Ashley N. | June 2015

No matter what type of service you are looking for in a wedding planner, whether it is full coordination and design, day of event, or a la carte service, it is one of the best investments a bride and groom can make. Hire Venus Event Design and you will not be disappointed!

My then-fiancé and now husband hired Hana as our ‘month of coordinator.’  When we first met with Hana, we immediately felt comfortable, relaxed and confident in her. We shared our thoughts and ideas and Hana shared her expertise and advice. I was the type of bride that liked to be involved in every detail of the process & Hana really devoted personal attention to you. She is quick in communication and responding to follow ups with vendors, emails and phone calls. She really cares about her clients. All our other wedding vendors (florist, cake, candy table, reception venue and church) had nothing but wonderful things to say about Hana.

The day of the wedding, I can not express how helpful and relaxing it was to have Hana and her assistant, Maria by our side. We did not have to worry about anything and Maria was always within distance if we needed anything. If we wanted a drink, she got it.  When my feet got tired, she went to go get my slippers. When I needed to hydrate, she got me water. Above all of that, Hana really executed our wedding vision and made it happen. Everything was p-e-r-f-e-c-t!

It is clear that Hana has such great passion for wedding planning and designing. I highly recommend Hana and Venus Event Design for your upcoming wedding!

Monica Salazar Edualino | March 2016

I was the officiant at a wedding in Malibu that Hana planned.  From my perspective, no stone was left unturned.  We communicated prior to the ceremony and the day after the ceremony making sure we were on the same page.  When I arrived at the venue, Hana had every detail taken care of.  She is a true professional – a person no bride can go wrong with and one I would recommend without reservation and with whom I look forward to working with in the future.
