And for the Destination Couple, Event Wedding Planning also offers customized Destination Wedding Planning, providing fabulous planning anywhere you want to plan your big day!

Event Wedding Planning is located in Orange County, California. We are highly educated in not only American traditional weddings, but also a vast array of religious-cultured weddings such as Jewish, Hindu, Muslim and Buddhist weddings. During the year, we only plan so many weddings, as we want to provide an extremely high level of personal service to each couple, instead of a quantity of weddings. So regardless of how delicate your wedding details may be or what size your wedding guest list may become, you can rest assure we are prepared to create an amazing custom event designed just for you. And thanks to the passing of Same-Sex Marriages in California, we are now planning Same-Sex Weddings as well.

No matter if you are a high-profile client or not. Your happiness is all that we are concerned with.
