What we love about what we do

Planning From Your Heart

Staying focused on why you're getting married clears a path to wedding planning that will keep your sanity in tact

Personalizing Your Day

Tapping into the thoughtfulness and creativity within you, making for a most memorable and unique celebration of your love 

Pro-Active Assistance

Our approach to wedding planning ensures that you're asking--and answering--all the right questions. Even ones you hadn't thought of yet

What makes us so S-A-S-S-Y

Service

One of our longest standing foundations is that the wedding couple, their voice, and their vision are always our top priority. Working on your behalf, and in the best interest of your wedding vision, is what fuels our hive. 

Activity

Staying in touch regularly with our couples is essential to maintaining wedding planning momentum. We help you stay on top of your to-do's (and even mandate wedding planning detoxes when necessary).

Support

Logistical. Emotional. Technical. Visual.
Every step of the way.
From navigating the vast sea of options out there, to holding your dress over your head while you pee...we've got you covered.

Systems

Our Sassy Little Bee has got a checklist, spreadsheet, and a system for everything. EV-ER-Y-thing. And each wedding we help execute contains new opportunities for us to evolve and strengthen our organizational tool box! 

Yoga

Balancing this wild wedding world we work in with some off the clock serenity is an absolute must for us. You won't find us offering "unlimited" anything or "24/7" availability out of respect for our families and our own sanity.

It takes a village to plan a wedding.

Amanda Trejo

Owner, Planner & Coordinator
She is: little, sassy bee
In 2004, a sassy little Jersey girl with a Rutgers botany degree moved to San Diego. However, shortly after landing in SD, she got bit by the wedding bug and traded in her lab coat & microscope for floral clippers...and eventually traded those in for spreadsheets and clip boards, never to know the true meaning of a "weekend off" ever again.
Best parts of the job: well executed toasts; crying good tears; working with our dearest friendors, pushing the button to fire the confetti cannon
Worst parts of the job: drunken, sloppy toasts; not enough gluten free desserts
Off the clock passions: gluten free desserts, fostering kittens, dogs who love kittens, electroforming things in copper, nerding out over birds of prey, Game of Thrones, gemstones, and list making, but most of all, spending time with her favorite painter, Michael C Hayes
