We had a great experience with Sonia. She was extremely helpful and responsive with our May 2023 wedding. The weather in Napa was not looking promising for our all outdoor wedding, so naturally we were extremely nervous and stressed out. Sonia was able to calm our nerves and hold our hand through the extremely stressful wedding-planning process. She had some great ideas for how to elevate our wedding, and she was wonderful with finalizing all the details with our vendors. We couldn't recommend Sonia and the UTVE team enough!
what can we say except, we don't know what we would have done without her help! Sonia was amazing and she made sure that our wedding planning was seamless (yah she did pretty much everything haha) and during our wedding that our focus was on each other, and nothing else. we all know how challenging the pandemic was, but with her help, she basically took care of everything. from wedding planning to vendors to venue setup to clean up to after party and to even months post, she was just magical. We would have literally gone insane without her help. she was critical for our wedding success and we cannot thank her enough. all our guests, our families and especially the wedding party, couldn't stop singing her praise. thank you Sonia, for being amazing.
Sonia was absolutely AMAZING!!! I don’t think I would have gotten through those last few months without her. She took over everything for me and anytime I called her to say, “I still need to contact XYZ”, her response was, “I already did!”
There were so many details to put together and so many vendors to check in with, I became overwhelmed very quickly. Sonia was constantly checking in with me to make sure I was doing okay and always letting me know that she in contact with all the vendors. She was able to keep our LARGE bridal party in check at all times and made sure the wedding was running smoothly and on time. Sonia is so easy to get along with and goes above and beyond to make sure the day is exactly what you want it to be, down to all the smallest details.
In the end, there were zero problems on our wedding and if there were, we didn’t know about them! As a bride, that’s all I could ever ask for.
Hiring Sonia was the best decision we made in planning our wedding! My husband and I got engaged in September of 2021 and got married in January 2022, a short four months later. We hired Sonia for the Partial Wedding Planning package and were extremely pleased with her work. Sonia is very organized and thoroughly prepared with everything that goes into planning a wedding. She had checklists and timelines at hand to keep everything on track which took much of the pressure off. Sonia has a kind and calm demeanor while still being persistent in “checking things off the list” which was the perfect balance for me! She was accommodating with my schedule even though I was working full-time. She was professional yet also felt like a good friend that I could be open with in sharing ideas. She also had some awesome suggestions which showed that she really knew what she was doing and had a great eye for décor, theme, and overall timeline flow. She coordinated with all my other vendors until our wedding day and balanced checking in and relaying questions without overwhelming me. On the wedding day everything worked flawlessly. I can honestly say that I was able to enjoy my wedding because I had full confidence that Sonia would handle every detail and would take care of anything unexpected. Everything flowed smoothly, exactly as intended, showing her great attention to detail and her character in truly going above and beyond to make our wedding day beautiful. I would highly recommend anyone who needs a wedding planner to hire Sonia!
Sonia guided us flawlessly through the process of bringing our wedding together and executing the big day. We had a large wedding (170 people) at a private venue that had not previously hosted weddings so there was a lot to do and Sonia helped us build our dream wedding from the ground up! We hired the Under the Vine team for the "month of coordination" package. Sonia gave us recommendations even before she officially came on board full time, and then was completely involved 45 days before the wedding. I could tell she wanted us to have OUR perfect wedding, and let us lead the way, never trying to push us into anything we didn't want. She was always focusing us our goals and pointing out any details we missed. She is so easy to talk to and I really trusted her judgement. She coordinated all final details-timing, contracts etc- with the vendors, especially working extensively with catering and rentals as our facility required bringing in everything we needed. She built a timeline that played out the entire day, and several diagrams mapping out our set up across the property and communicated that with everyone who needed to know. On the day of, everything was amazing. I have attached the thank you email I sent to Sonia immediately after with my reflections on how the day went to share how truly amazing she is. I highly recommend working with Under the Vine!!

"WHEN YOU WORK WITH SOMEONE FOR NINE MONTHS, YOU CAN’T HELP BUT DEVELOP A SPECIAL CONNECTION WITH THE PERSON. :) WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE FOR SONIA. SHE IS PROFESSIONAL, ORGANIZED, FRIENDLY, AND EXTREMELY HELPFUL RIGHT FROM THE START. WHEN I HAD A MILLION QUESTIONS AND REQUESTS, SHE WAS PATIENT AND QUICK TO RESPOND. I EVEN HAD SOME SLIGHT FREAK-OUTS THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS (MOSTLY AS THE BIG DAY WAS GETTING CLOSER), BUT SHE WAS THERE TO LISTEN AND HELP CALM ME DOWN. I TRULY FELT CONFIDENT THAT EVERYTHING WOULD COME TOGETHER NICELY AND THAT EVERYTHING WOULD RUN SMOOTHLY. WE WERE IN GREAT HANDS, AND OUR WEDDING TURNED OUT TO BE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT AND WE ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. THANK YOU, SONIA, FOR BEING THERE FROM START TO FINISH, AND FOR EVERYTHING YOU DID TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAD THE BEST NIGHT OF OUR LIVES!"
"This is an extremely overdue review. I would 1000% recommend Under the Vine Events to help coordinate a wedding or any other event. Sonia is absolutely amazing in every way.
We hired Sonia as a day of coordinator for our wedding on October 10, 2020. Our wedding plans had to be completely altered due to Covid. We originally planned for a 150 guest wedding at a venue that had to be changed to a 40 guest wedding on a private property in Napa. The whole event was executed seamlessly, and that would not have been able to happen without having Under the Vine Events. Sonia handled a very stressful situation with ease and had great connections with vendors. Our wedding was actually more beautiful and special than we could have ever imagined. Sonia was there for us every step of the way and is extremely organized. She help with all vendor contact the month before the wedding, had a detailed Google doc with all of the day-of information, helped with creating a rental list, and always there for my thousands of questions. I would not hesitate to reach out to Sonia. She is a great person and an amazing coordinator. She is so easy to talk to and is very calming during such an exciting time. I was actually sad when my wedding was over because I wouldn’t be talking to her on a regular basis. Thank you again Sonia for all of your help making my wedding dreams come true!"
Sonia came highly recommended from a trusted planner in the Napa region and she did not disappoint. We hired her for month of services and our only regret was we should have found her sooner! We were originally hosting our small wedding at a private residence and when it fell through a month before our wedding Sonia was always calm, positive and jumped in head first to find us a new venue. Day of she again brought her positive energy (something that was very important to my husband and I), ensured the details were taken care while doing so with professionalism and a smile. We highly recommend Sonia!
If you’re reading this, you’ve found an amazing wedding planner and person! Sonia is an incredibly talented wedding planner and is absolutely the professional you want leading you through the planning process. She is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, kind and knows what she is doing. She has a wide network of vendors and is always ready to offer suggestions and advice. We are so grateful to have worked with her. We highly recommend working with her. Thank you again, Sonia!
Our daughter was recently married at Silverado Resort and Spa, and she selected Sonia as her wedding planner. What was most impressive about Sonia was her professionalism as she interacted with us. She listens carefully, is detailed oriented, and offers great suggestions. Sonia also coordinated well with the other vendors on our behalf.We worked through a timeline together discussing every detail from sending out invitations to the end of the reception. Her organization and follow through was outstanding. The day of the wedding was no exception. It started on time, and ended on time, Sonia overseeing all that she had promised to do, helping to make it the most beautiful God honoring day!
Friends and family continue to talk about how beautiful and perfect the wedding was. We would highly recommend Sonia to anyone looking for a great wedding planner!
"I WAS HESITANT ABOUT HIRING A WEDDING COORDINATOR FOR MY SMALL DESTINATION WEDDING, BUT I AM SO HAPPY I DID! SONIA WAS PROFESSIONAL, ORGANIZED AND PERSONABLE. NOT ONLY DID SHE PROVIDE INVALUABLE SUPPORT IN PLANNING THE WEDDING (KEEPING IN CONTACT AND COORDINATING WITH ALL MY VENDORS, BUILDING A DETAILED SCHEDULE TO SHARE WITH ME AND ALL THE VENDORS, PROVIDING ADVICE, AND FINALIZING DETAILS), BUT I ALSO HAD MULTIPLE PEOPLE COME UP TO ME ON THE WEDDING DAY COMPLIMENTING ON HOW HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY SHE WAS.She asked permission to take some pictures the day of and I am so glad I said yes because they turned out beautiful. If anyone is debating if they want to hire a wedding coordinator, I definitely recommend it and highly recommend Sonia!
As a second time MOB, I had lots of ideas and needed help with the organization and execution of a 180 guest, church & reception venues, COVID-timed wedding. Sonia stepped up to the challenge and helped to create a day that was "more beautiful than I imagined", a quote from the Bride. Some of her best qualities were keeping me on task, respectfully communicating with vendors, and maintaining a presence that was reassuring, thoughtful and low profile...that is, she was always at work on our project, while respecting my wish to stay in control. All of our detail work resulted in a day that was most magical. Thank you, Sonia.
Sonia is hands down the best wedding coordinator we could have possible chosen for our day. She went above and beyond to make sure every single detail was taken care of. Our day was flawless and I know that was due to all of her organizing. Throughout the planning process, she knew what questions to ask before we did. She kept extremely detailed notes and was always a phone call away if I was concerned about something. I seriously cannot thank you enough for the most perfect day, Sonia!!
"I SERIOUSLY CANNOT EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE ENOUGH FOR SONIA! SHE WAS THERE FOR ME THE ENTIRE TIME, MADE SURE EVERYTHING WENT SMOOTH, RESPONDED TO ME QUICKLY EVERY TIME I CONTACTED HER, WAS IN CONTACT WITH EACH OF MY VENDORS, ENSURED I HAD ALL MY STUFF DONE. CHECKED IN WITH ME CONSTANTLY. AND SHE IS THE SWEETEST. HER AND LISA HAD IMPECCABLE DETAIL. SO SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE HAD THEM!"
SONIA HELPED WITH OUR MONTH-OF PLANNING FOR OUR WEDDING IN NAPA AND WAS VERY GENEROUS WITH HER TIME (ESPECIALLY SINCE WE HAD TO RESCHEDULE OUR WEDDING TWICE DUE TO THE PANDEMIC!). SHE WAS EASY TO WORK WITH AND ORGANIZED. I ESPECIALLY APPRECIATED THAT SHE OFFERED GREAT ADVICE AND HAD A POINT OF VIEW WITHOUT BEING PUSHY. I ALWAYS LOOKED FORWARD TO MEETING WITH HER AND IT WAS WONDERFUL TO HAVE HER WITH US ON THE WEDDING DAY!
SONIA WAS SO WONDERFUL LEADING UP TO OUR WEDDING WEEKEND AND ON THE DAYS OF. SHE MADE IT SO EASY TO ENJOY BEING A BRIDE AND GROOM WITH ALL OF HER HELP ORGANIZING AND PLANNING FOR US. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SONIA TO ANY BRIDE WHO DOESN'T WANT TO BE STUCK PLANNING UP TO A MONTH PRIOR TO HER DAY. ALL OF OUR VENDORS, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS HAD NOTHING BUT PRAISE FOR ALL OF HER HARD WORK!
