Events aren’t what they used to be.

(You can thank Pinterest and the internet for that)

Whether it’s the guest count or details that have you stressed, you’re not alone.  Most people suffer through planning their event because hiring an event planner may seem to be an unnecessary and added expense. However, precisely the opposite is true.  An event planner can save you large amounts of money in proportion to the size of your event.

Hello!My Name is Opal Sierra

I have been in the event industry for over 10 years.  I started professionally planning and coordinating weddings in 2007.  After working for a large party rental company, and a wedding venue;   I realized that I had a natural talent in event planning and wedding coordination.

I have always exhibited strong leadership skills, worked well under pressure, and been able to problem solve with little to no time or resources.  I fuse a fun upbeat “can do” attitude with a strong assertive undertone, to your event.  By doing this I’m able to keep things moving and make sure the event is still enjoyable.

If you think about it, those characteristics alone, create the “perfect storm” for a wedding planner.   Add in the fact that I am flexible,  approachable, great at dealing with larger bridal parties, rough and rowdy crowds, and loose cannon family members, and presto you’ve got the perfect planner.

“Working with Opal was a dream. She was experienced and talented. She worked well with my daughter and my husband and made all of our demands and expectations come to fruition. Opal worked within our budget and found creative solutions so that all dreams became reality; and all this happened during the plan stage. The day of the wedding, Opal handled everything from set-up, to managing the timeline of events, coordinating with the vendors and eventually overseeing cleanup. I, my daughter and my husband, truly had an exceptional day, full of wonderful memories.....all because Opal handled everything and made all the dreams and expectations reality!!!! ”

“Opal was the wedding planner for my wedding! We had 185 guests. To this day I still get compliments about how amazing my wedding was. With so much to remember she was my right hand gal! Honestly I could not have done it without her. I just had to tell her my vision and she brought it to life. She does it all! She arranged rentals, set me up with the best DJ, set up everything, managed the rehearsal, the wedding party and kept everything flowing.
She is friendly, organized, prompt, extremely knowledgeable and so helpful! I don't know how she does it all! I'm so thankful for her! Thanks Opal!!!! ”
