|My fiance and I are planning our wedding in the Santa Barbara area, but live in Orange County. We contacted Alexandra through Eventective and we have nothing but wonderful things to say about her. At our initial meeting, she was on time, friendly, and provided us with a number of useful resources. She even offered to show us around the city to tour some of the wedding venues she thought would work for us. Alexandra's fees are very reasonable and she is organized and thoughtful with her work. She offered us a number of options for her services and put no pressure on us to to pick any specific package. Alexandra was diligent and followed through with deadlines and was helpful with keeping us on track for our big day. We enjoyed having her being such a wonderful part of our wedding experience and would recommend her to anyone!!|

|Alexandra from Alexandra King Designs was my full-time wedding planner for my wedding in 2013. Initially my fiancé and I were overwhelmed by the numerous options and challenges of having a wedding in Santa Barbara. Going to school at the same time didn't make it easier it easier on me. I can't imagine planning it without her. |
She is amazing. Without her I couldn't have found the site of our wedding location. She even knew about locations not listed in the standard wedding listings booklet! My fiancé and I loved one of her recommendations and chose it as our wedding venue.
I wanted an elegant wedding, and a fusion wedding that displays the traditional aspects of the two different Persian and Hindu cultures that our families come from. Planning a wedding, or in this case a bit more than one wedding :-) isn't easy and seemed daunting for our pocket books. But Alexandra made it happen :-)
She helped us save costs by providing a detailed estimate of what various vendors had to offer, and gave us clever tips to help us meet our budget. Alexandra didn't just stop at local vendors. Since music is important to both our friends and families, we wanted a DJ that would understand our music. But this seemed challenging. So, Initially I thought that one of us would have to give up for the other. Alexandra, bless her heart, for several months searched far and wide to find an awesome group that my fiancé and I would want to play at our wedding. I still can't believe we found a DJ that knows both our music.
Alexandra is a wonderful person to work with and very affordable. I appreciate her level of detail and her genuine concern for our well-being and our vision for our wedding day.
