Kind Words About Our Work from Clients & Vendors
Pan + Jared
Hiring Ali is the best decision you will make for your wedding. Without a doubt. Beginning the wedding process, sorting out the endless options for vendors and details and navigating through costs is incredibly intimidating. I knew I wanted to play a role in planning my big day but found myself quickly overwhelmed by it all. My amazing venue, Paradise Ridge, introduced me to Ali, and I was impressed with her the moment we met. While so warm and fun to be around (not to mention her amazing ability to keep up with my husband's sense of humor), I loved that I could always count on her for an honest and thoughtful recommendation. She helped us navigate through a whole slew of details and connected us with some of the BEST vendor partners around. Months after my wedding, my guests are still commenting on how well they were taken care of, how beautifully and seamlessly the night came together and how special each interaction was throughout the night. Ali and her team are professional, responsive, dedicated and simply awesome all around. And for those who are budget conscious...her pricing is actually so fair and reasonable for the level of service she delivers. She puts on tons of weddings and events throughout the year but always made us feel like we were her only clients. But don't take my word for it... give her a call and see for yourself! Sincerely, a very happy and thankful client : )

Ali is great to work with! She was very responsive anytime we had any questions. She helped with finding our photographer, caterer and venue and made the experience less stressful and was able to work with our budget. When it came to our wedding day, everything ran so smoothly and Ali was able to take our vision and turn it into such a magical, fun and beautiful day! I would definitely recommend Ali DiLuvio Events to anyone looking for a professional events coordinator!
Mollie + Jared
Ali DiLuvio was absolutely amazing to work with. She helped us to turn our vague ideas of what we wanted for our special day in to the most beautiful wedding. Our wedding was better than we could have ever imagined because we had Ali working with us. She is so easy to work with, professional, kind and flexible. I was so relaxed the day of my wedding because I knew I did not have to worry about a thing because Ali had everything taken care of. Throughout the entire planning process from picking a venue to walking down the aisle, Ali was there to help guide and support us. I highly recommend her to anyone. Thank you again Ali for making our wedding a dream come true!

We were unsure whether we needed a wedding planner for our event, but we were very glad we did. We ended up going with the partial planning option which reduced the amount of work for us while speeding up all of the vendor interactions. Whenever we would feel like there was too much to do or lost in the process, after a call to Ali, we'd feel comfortable again. We had some complications in our planning, for example when the contact at our venue was replaced halfway through and we had difficulty getting a hold of anyone, but Ali took charge and made sure everything went smoothly. Her presence on the day of the wedding was invaluable, as she gave us all of our cues and made sure we were on the ball the whole night. The actual wedding day was completely stress free which is a huge credit to Ali. After the wedding, I noticed some extra charges from one of the vendors. I asked Ali about it and she handled that as well, getting us a partial refund.
Ali is passionate about what she does, went the extra mile for us and made us feel totally comfortable on our wedding day. Huge thanks to her for helping make our wedding day what it was.

Ali did a superb job with coordinating our wedding. We took advantage of her day of planning package, and it was a great decision. She was very organized, prompt with responses, and provided honest thoughts on what she thought was feasible/appropriate but also took feedback and requests well. She was proactive with preventing or mitigating any issues, and if any issues did arise (no major issues occurred that we were aware of) she promptly addressed them. She kept our wedding moving along to the timeline but she was sensitive to changes that we wanted to make that day (extra reception speakers). Her assistant, Lorenzo, also did an excellent job. They both took great care of us, ensuring to check on us periodically to see if we needed anything. One item we both were so impressed with and grateful for was the special times she set aside for us during the day. These were private times that we could take a minute and enjoy the moment and it made our day all that more special and memorable. My husband felt very confident in her abilities and we weren't disappointed. Overall, a great experience and we highly recommend her services.

You will not find a better event planner and wedding coordinator - Ali is the best. Hands down. She listens to your needs, while bringing her professional experience to the table... to help guide you through the process in the most productive and enjoyable way possible. She was a blast to work with, and was sensitive to my feelings and opinions. She is one of the most organized, detail-oriented people I have ever met. But Ali's services don't stop there. When the big day finally arrives you have nothing to fret about when Ali is on your team. She is a rock star!! She made sure every detail was in place and each person on cue. Her attentiveness is amazing. The schedule was so perfected, it was almost nauseating :) She really chose the right profession and you would be so very lucky to have her as your wedding planner. Thanks a million Ali! We love you!!!!

Ali is a true perfectionist. From the first time my wife and I met her to discuss our wedding all the way until the big day had finally past we were very impressed by how smooth everything went throughout the entire process for such a big wedding (400+ people). Ali made sure every last detail and request was complete no matter what it took and all of her vendor recommendations were exceptional on every level. We would like to thank Ali again for all her help on the best day of our lives.
NICOLE + BRYAN
Ali was absolutely the best! When we found her we felt like we hit the jackpot. When we started looking at venues and planners we were completely distraught with how expensive everything was in the Bay Area. We decided to do a full service package with Ali at Paradise Ridge Winery. Both the venue and Ali were the best decisions we made. Ali was so fun to talk to about all the wedding details and you can feel her enthusiasm/passion for what she does. She took time to talk to us about our vision and I felt she really understood the vibe we were going for and it wasn't just a cookie-cutter wedding that she was putting together. She made sure to make it personal to us. Also, on multiple occasions she made herself available to talk on the phone to discuss different options/pricing, etc. Each vendor that Ali recommended was top notch as well. We felt like we got great pricing too since she works with these vendors all year and they give her the best rates out there. Ali even recommended a great stylist to do my hair since I live in San Francisco and didn't know anyone in the area (Mary at Mint Salon & Spa was fantastic). All and all I felt like Ali was more than just a wedding planner to us. She really made our day special and eased all the stress that comes along with the planning. We can't recommend her enough!

Working with Ali's clients is the best! They are always relaxed and completely engaged in the day's emotions. As a photographer that is such an amazing thing. When your clients are not consumed with the stresses of the day because they trust in their wedding planner, it's wonderful. It allows me to capture the true spirit of the couple and their loved ones. She is very direct, unwavering, yet kind in her delivery which makes working with her great. She gets the job done with out being rude and she is ALWAYS her clients biggest advocate when any situation arises. She cares for her clients like they are her family, she stops at nothing to make sure their day is better than they expected. Ali has worked with the best vendors in the area for many years and has formed great relationships in the wedding industry community which makes accomplishing her clients goals easier for her than for most. I highly recommend Ali which is why I also discount my services to her clients, she makes my job easier to do!
