Testimonials

“ Details Details Wedding and Event Planning is one of the premier planning companies in Southern California.  Owner, Jeannie Savage, and her entire team of professionals dedicate their time, efforts and knowledge to ensuring perfection in every step of the planning process from the first meeting to the production of the wedding day and beyond.

Their unsurpassed expertise and warm demeanor puts every bride at ease, knowing that they are in the best of hands.  Jeannie’s relationship with the top vendors in the industry, completes the entire package of perfection for each couple.  We have had the pleasure of working with Jeannie and the Details Details team since Pelican Hill’s opening over two years ago.  Pelican Hill pursues perfection for all guests, and we feel confident that Details Details weddings will always run flawlessly from beginning to end and with the utmost attention given to every last detail.  Our brides, grooms and staff alike, have given Details Details rave reviews with every aspect of the planning process and execution of the wedding day.  We always know that when Details Details are in board, the wedding is going to be run smoothly from start to finish.

Couples sometimes choose to hire an inexperienced planner as they do not understand the importance of this role.  Inexperienced planners hired based on price, often have vendors who are not a cohesive team, which can significantly jeopardize the success of the wedding.  At Pelican Hill we have a written portion of the contract that states if the client is looking at hiring a planner that has not done business at the Resort, we have the right to approve or decline.  I personally interview the coordinator to understand their level of experience, and require them to provide me with 3 recommendations from Catering Directors at 4 or 5 Star Hotels in the area.  The importance of experience and high-level training is vital to the success of a future premier planner.”

-George J Nickels, Director of Special Events, The Resort at Pelican Hill

“As a luxury resort, to assure our guests will experience the highest level of service possible and a flawless wedding day, we require each of our couples to hire an experienced Wedding Coordinator to work closely with our Catering Managers.  Hotels utilize a Banquet Event Orders (BEO) to communicate the details of every event to the Banquet Department Team. Because of the accuracy of the BEO determines the success of every event, the Montage will highly recommend those Coordinators that are truly proficient in working with BEO’s. The Coordinators of Details Details are unsurpassed in their ability to accurately coordinate communication between their clients and the hotel and keep BEO’s update and precise.

With so many moving parts to creating and executing a perfect wedding day, in addition to the BEO, the written timeline is a crucial communication tool which keeps everyone on the same page. Without a detailed timeline, there would be chaos and confusion all day long. The timelines that we receive from Details Details are truly some of the best and most accurate in the industry.

Every one of our brides that has had the privilege of working with Details Details has come away from the experience so thankful they hired them.  All of the top vendors in theindustry love working with them due to their commitment to excellence and their impeccable attention to detail.  The Montage offers its highest recommendation to the Coordinators at Details Details and can only hope, that everyone we get to work with has their passion for perfection!”

“I rarely work with coordinators for a myriad of reasons but mostly because I feel most coordinators impede communication with clients and they stand in the way of a smooth event production the day of an event… HOWEVER, with Jeannie and her team I breath a sigh of relief.  It takes an eye for design related to aesthetics and overall production to make a great coordinator.

Jeannie and her team have an innate sense of design so it becomes manifold easier to communicate with them on design aspects.  I am always certain they see the overall vision before I do and they make sure it’s communicated to the client and executed seamlessly the day of the event.  Great coordinators are in this for the love and joy of beauty and an honest love for their clients.  Jeannie and her team create an atmosphere of open and honest communication between client and vendors, creating an atmosphere of trust and joy.

I get up the day of an event knowing Jeannie and her team have facilitated a long-term line of dialogue and trust.  I know they will be there at the crack of dawn with me to lend a helping hand and eye in the production and they are always more than fully staffed to service the client in the most graceful impeccable manner.

It’s a win-win with Details Details, the client is taken care of and all of us hired by them are reassured knowing their attention to production detail leave room for nothing less than a perfectly beautiful seamless event.  I love them and have immense respect for them.

“I’ve worked with well over 100 different wedding coordinators on over 850 weddings in my career, with that being said, I believe that gives me some level of expertise and allows me the insight into what a true processional wedding coordinator should be.  In my humble opinion Details Details Wedding and Event Planning are on the top of not only my list, but that of other highly respected vendors and event venue sites list as well.  Jeannie has my utmost respect and admiration for the incredible business she has produced.  Details Details should be the model for all other wedding coordinators to strive for.

I can not say enough about how smoothly all of the weddings that we have worked together have gone and how cool, calm and professional and fun she and all of her staff are to work with.  It is no coincidence that the word Details is mentioned twice in her companies name, she has every single detail counted for and the reason I hold her in such high regard.

It is my extreme honor and without hesitation that I highly endorse Details Details Wedding and Event Planning as the best of the best!”

“I wouldn’t plan a wedding without calling Details, Details first. I have had the pleasure of working with Jeannie and her team for the past few years, and words cannot describe how organized, timely, and beautiful their weddings are! As a vendor, it is always a relief to know that all the planning is taken care of, and that Jeannie and her team have everything under control. As a beauty vendor, timing is crucial so having a planned detailed timeline helps everyone stay on track, and makes my job relaxing and fun! The attention to detail, and professionalism stand out in the wedding planning industry, and all of their brides could not be happier with the end result on their big day!

“As you know, it’s hard to find people who are both gracious and competent at what they do.  Jeannie is both and more. Ten words to describe Jeannie:

Gracious, funny, competent, focused, prepared, thoughtful, clever, insightful, generous, professional.

These are just ten of the reasons why I’m grateful for the seven years I’ve worked with Jeannie.  When not officiating weddings, I teach business communication at UCLA and privately coach managers in communication skills. Often, I talk about Jeannie and how she does what she does so beautifully.  Jeannie has spoiled me. I’ve worked at weddings where the day-of person or even the event planner has been friendly, but in over her/his head.  Last year, I was part of a wedding where, just an hour prior to the ceremony’s start, I found myself pointing out to the coordinator things she still needed to tend to.  Without realizing it, Jeannie has trained me!

Several of Jeannie’s Assistants are now event planners on their own.  I love working with them—warm, gracious, and fun folks.  They clearly have the “Details Details” stamp.

I love doing what I do because I get to meet wonderful couples at a wonderful time in their life.  I especially love that I get to work with some of the most creative, generous, deep-down good people I’ve ever met.  And so many of these folks I’ve met through Details Details

I always tell couples that the best money they’re going to spend is on their Coordinator.  A couple that comes to Jeannie is in wonderful hands.  I know this, because she’s taught me how to be even more caring and professional in my own work”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Jeannie Savage and her great team at Details Details at many weddings over the last three years, and as a vendor who sees about 100 weddings a year, it’s easy for me to say that it is the most professional and dedicated team in the industry.  All clients of Jeannie’s have had nothing but wonderful comments on her work and her guidance for design and the many decisions she has to make.  The team’s attention to details (obviously!) and focus on accurate timelines and lots of communication with us vendors helps the wedding day run smoothly and be as low-stress as possible.  Any member of the team always shows up to the bridal suite with the best attitude and positive interaction with the client on the wedding day, which I believe makes a huge difference to the bride on her biggest day.  I never hesitate to recommend Details Details to brides!”
