Love Letters

Rachel & Chris,
Because of Lavish, my wedding day was relaxing, stress-free and in my eyes, the day went perfectly. After the fact, I found out a few little things that went wrong (like people showing up who weren’t invited, etc), but the problems were solved completely without my involvement and I didn’t even know about them until they were no longer a problem anymore. I was able to spend the day relaxing and getting ready with my girls rather than stressing over the set-up of the wedding. Christine handled coordinating all the vendors and was their contact the “day-of” so I didn’t even have to think about it! She and her team also handled the after wedding clean up, which was a HUGE help! We were able to spend the following day enjoying our friends and family instead of worrying about everything getting cleaned at the venue so we could get our deposit back. Hiring a coordinator should absolutely be a part of any bride’s wedding budget. Being stress-free the day-of is priceless! I highly recommend Christine at Lavish because she went above and beyond.



Deniece & James,
Christine was always able to ease my concerns by responding to me almost immediately whenever I emailed her. Before I even hired her as my wedding coordinator she had helped me with referrals to vendors and my wedding venue. Every time we decided to change something, which we did a lot (food, venue, date, etc.), Christine was there to help us get back on track and not stress out. She was able to work within our budget but still went above and beyond to provide exceptional service. I really felt like I could go to Christine for anything and she always offered valuable guidance. When it came to my month-of wedding planning, she provided all kinds of worksheets and charts to make sure we had everything organized and in order. She contacted all of my vendors to coordinate set up times and all logistical details. I cannot tell you how much weight she lifted off of my shoulders in those final weeks leading up to the wedding. When we met for the walk through at the venue, I was assured that she had everything under control and that my wedding would end up just how I wanted it. She was also available to run the rehearsal dinner which was a huge help! On the day of the wedding, Christine was all over the place making sure everything was in order and that we stuck to the timeline. Although, we were slightly behind after the ceremony, we did a pretty good job sticking to our schedule. I was so happy with the way the decor came out and the way she set up everything in the way I wanted it to be. I could not be happier with the final product.


Sheree & Ryan,
Wow! Christine is the wow factor! Direct a wedding rehearsal and get 10 wedding party members, 3 small children, 5 readers, and a friend who is officiating to their places and timed out. She can do that! Do it all again the next day for the wedding. No problem! Get all the little details in place so the reception is how you dreamed it would be. Done! Christine was everywhere and knew what was happening with everything. She was friendly to the inquisitive relatives, informative to the vendors and communicated constantly to keep us in the loop. She was gracious and friendly throughout the process. When talking with Christine I was confident she understood the aspects that were important to us and could make them happen… and we had some different requests. Heck, we have an 8-foot boat we wanted to use for sodas and water. Christine is the reason everything ran smoothly for the wedding. She responded fast to emails and had answers to whatever questions we could dream up. Thanks again Christine for being an amazing coordinator, it was an amazing day!


Christina & Denmark,
We hired Christine with Lavish Wed to coordinate our wedding on May 25th, 2013. Originally we were going to skip on hiring a coordinator but I couldn’t be more pleased that we decided to go forward with coordination services with Lavish Wed! We went with month of services (she started assisting way before “the month of”) and got way more than what I expected. Her prices are reasonable and the service was great. I don’t think Christine sleeps as she would promptly reply to emails over night. She was flexible with changes (even at the last minute) and did her best to ensure that my husband and I really got to enjoy our wedding!Thanks Christine for all your help! You were a absolute pleasure to work with!!


Maya & Aaron,
Christine was amazing! She was always on point. She verified all information with all of our vendors and made sure that everyone was on the same page. She helped setup A LOT of our décor the day of which definitely lowered our stress levels. The whole day ran perfectly smooth and she was always there to make sure we were at the right place at the right time in order to keep our wedding on track. I would highly recommend Christine to anyone looking for a coordinator. Top-notch.

Amy & Jeff,
She is so organized and on top of all the details that my other vendors were even complimenting me on my choice. I’m not kidding .. the officiant, the lighting crew, the DJ, and my photographer all said good things. My favorite compliment was from my sister (and maid of honor) who asked, “Where did you FIND her??”


Not only did my vendors think she was great, my guests were pleased as well. We had 175 people at our ceremony and reception and I received multiple compliments about how the ceremony and reception were beautifully planned. She is so discrete that no one even knew Christine was behind it all!

Despite the opinions of my vendors and guests, my husband and I were definitely her happiest customers that day. Like any wedding, ours didn’t go without its problems (i.e. the florist got lost, some of the guests were running behind, etc) but we didn’t hear about ANY of it until after the event. Being able to relax and enjoy ourselves on our wedding day was an invaluable gift that Christine gave to us. We really can’t thank her enough.

Melissa & David,
Without Christine my wedding would have never happened! I am an event producer who lives in LA and so I kept pushing my own event off to the last minute. Christine kept me on track, recommended excellent vendors and even found me a videographer 3 days before my wedding. The wedding and reception stayed perfectly on schedule and she kept so calm and helped me do the same! We things went a little off track with the pre wedding photo she saved the day and drove us around to alternate locations!!

Christine has great personal relationships with so many vendors in San Diego making her an incredible resource. She comes with the highest recommendation possible!

Leo & Raina,
Thank you so much Lavish Wed for making our wedding dreams come true! Christine Ong is so professional, organized and so sweet! My husband and I are so blessed to have had her as our wedding planner and wedding day coordinator. Throughout our wedding planning, she always did the best she could to meet our needs and was always patient when we made changes (and trust me, we made A LOT haha). Not only is she an expert at what she does, but you can really tell that she loves everything about weddings. With me being the stressed out bride-to-be, it was super reassuring to know that she was there to help out with anything at any time I needed her. We can’t even begin to imagine how our wedding would’ve gone if she wasn’t there to control the flow of everything. If you are looking for an amazing wedding planner/coordinator, truly consider Lavish Wed… I totally recommend them!


Salma & Taib,
Christine and Lavish Wed is fabulous! We hired Lavish Wed for partial planning and day of coordination. It was the best decision we made. From the moment we met Christine she was full of ideas. I knew she was the perfect planner for our wedding because she was helpful even before we signed the contract with her. That’s what made her unique to us.

We had a multi-cultural wedding with 400 people and a complex program. Christine listened to what we envisioned for our wedding and made it happen. She helped us design our wedding and connected us to some amazing vendors. Her abundant knowledge and experience in the event industry helped us greatly. She knows what she’s doing. She was always approachable and always available to answer questions and help, which was awesome. Best of all, she’s super organized. She made sure my husband and I were on top of everything which was great because we were so busy with other stuff.

All our guests were impressed with Lavish Wed on the day of the wedding. It was beyond obvious that even though we had 400 guests, a complex wedding program and a huge wedding party, everything went smoothly, perfectly and on time.

We had ordered macaroons from a local bakery but had no idea what to do with it. Christine designed a beautiful station displaying the macaroons. People could not stop talking about how pretty it looked. She did a great job.

If it weren’t for Christine and her team, I have no idea what we would have done. Lavish Wed is amazing!! Best wedding planner/coordinator ever!!


Jessica & Isaac,
I cannot say enough great things about Christine and her team at Lavish Wed. We booked the month of coordination package through them and right at the month mark Christine came In and helped immensely. She is the ultimate problem solver and anything additional that we needed she took care of. I can’t stress how important I feel having a wedding planner is, and Christine’s prices are reasonable and well worth it. All of my vendors thought she was great and my husband and family raved about her and her hard work. If I could do it again, I would definitely do her full planning package as I’m sure she would do an amazing job and it would have taken a good amount of stress away from me.


Regine & James,
I absolutely LOVE Lavish Wed! Christine Ong honestly went above and beyond what I expected. She made our wedding day even better than we could imagine. Throughout the wedding planning process, I must have contacted her over a million times! Nonetheless, she responded promptly and helped me with everything I needed. She literally put my whole wedding together; From recommending the venues, the bakery, rentals, transportation, catering invoices, etc. She had an answer for everything. She took all my stress away the day of the wedding and dealt with everything so that we could enjoy every moment. The moment I saw the way she set up the chapel and the reception, it honestly took my breath away. And with me being pregnant she made sure that I was as comfortable as can be, and made sure that my husband, the baby, and myself were all fed. She helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives. She also made such beautiful, delicious treats for our baby’s shower. I would recommend her to any bride to be I know any day! She has a lifetime client right here! I can’t wait to plan her first birthday and have Lavish be a part of it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for us Christine at Lavish Wed!


Eunice & Jared,
Thank you so much Christine for everything you helped me with during the whole wedding planning preparation & Wedding day. You did such an AMAZING job! It was PERFECT! I loved everything. I remember sitting there in awe :) You were made for your job I can’t express my thanks & gratitude for all that you helped me with.







Madison & Joel,
Christine at Lavish Wed was amazing to work with. She went above and beyond! My wedding was flawless and everything coordinated beautifully! I received so many compliments on how smoothly and well timed the whole wedding went! I highly recommend her whole team! My wedding would have not been so flawless without Christine and her team. I highly recommend Lavish Wed!



Stephani & Arnaud,
Thank Goodness for Christine and Lavish Wed!!

My husband and I live in Las Vegas Nv, But were planning our wedding in San Diego Ca.
I knew I wanted a coordinator for the day of our wedding- so I could enjoy the day and not have to stress.

But as we started planning we realized we needed help!

Christine couldn’t have been more perfect!

Not only did she take control of what we needed fast. But she was amazingly helpful with so much more!!

Everything from planning the details I had forgotten about, To making our beautiful design ideas come to life. Christine went above and beyond for us!!

***She even saved the day when my wedding dress ripped the day of!

I don’t know what we would have done without Lavish Wed!
Best wedding decision we made!

Mai & Chris,
I’m still on a complete high with how wonderful our wedding was…

Christine and her team were SO on top of things.  Christine, Annie, and Val surpassed all of my expectations.   My jaws dropped and eyes watered when I walked into our reception hall.  The “dream team”, I like to call it, made our wedding completely flawless.  We even had a little hiccup (more guest arrived that I did not receive their RSVP), and her team and our vendors were so on top of it!!

Our entire list of vendors (caterer, DJ, photographer, florist, etc…) kept mentioning how AWESOME Christine is to work with.  They thanked me for hiring her as she was a godsend to not only us, but our vendors as well!  Not only did the vendors appreciate her, but our family and friends kept commenting on how wonderful Christine and her staff was.  Our guests kept saying that it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended, and how everything fell into place so perfectly!!!  Lavish Wed definitely knew what they were doing and it definitely showed.

I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Lavish Wed to any and all future brides.   I wish I can hire her again (but I’m only getting married once. LOL)  Thank You Christine, Annie, and Val, you guys are THE BEST!!!!!!!

Sara & Sam,
Any women would kill to have something that can accomplish all those needs listed above on your Wedding Day (you only have one chance to do it right!). Without Christine you’d probably end up in the sidelines not being able to walk down the aisle because you are too busy checking if the flowers are in order, or if your BM’s are lined up properly, or the guests are comfortably seated..etc. Why.. why would any bride want that on your day??

Christine Ong and her team were angels from heaven. They literally look like it.. well in professional black attire for the respect of the bride in white ;). Like everyone says.. you don’t remember much of how your wedding was put together and that’s how it should be. The girls figured things out on their own and placed everything in a more attractive way than I could have ever thought of doing. I was throughly stressed before the month of my wedding because being a designer.. everyone expected to see a lot from me.. or at least that’s how I thought. Of course designers are the greatest critics so it was a bit of a roller coaster at first.

But the day I gave everything to Christine in bin’s labeled in the way I visioned things.. I truly let a sigh of relief. I knew all my work and custom handmade DIY things were in good hands.. if anything I knew she was going to make them look even better. Her style obviously was something I adored so whatever she changed last minute I trusted.
