I would need a novel to fully describe how wonderful and amazing our experience with Stacey and Vizcaya staff has been. Vizcaya is Sacramento's #1 wedding venue for all the right reasons. From when we first contacted Vizcaya and took our tour, before we even signed our contract, we already felt like we were being taken care of. Stacey is such a warm, caring, and sweet person; she always made things sound like it would all be ok (and it did turn out fine!). She was also easy to communicate with and handled my constant barrage of questions so well. I'm sure I asked her several questions repeatedly throughout the year because I couldn't remember what we discussed months earlier, but she always responded like it was the first time I was asking. She was also incredibly flexible with our requests, whether it was for wedding details or just scheduling meetings. We visited Vizcaya several times on our own, plus with family and friends, and each time she was always so sweet and cheery. And when we interacted with other Vizcaya staff they were also very welcoming; total service with a smile. I was a wreck when rehearsal day arrived, still trying to get so much done (the perils of a DIY wedding by a family of procrastinators) and we had so many people in our entourage, but Stacey handled it with ease and rehearsal went along smoothly. Our detail meetings were great; she knew just the right questions to ask us and what to discuss so we got a lot of things ironed out. It made us confident that Vizcaya was a great venue and the Big Day confirmed that even more!
The wedding was a blur; so many things happening way too fast in way too little time (I wish it could have gone on all weekend) because we were all having such a great time! Stacey and all the Vizcaya staff took such good care of us. As promised, they put up decorations, arranged all our props, constantly put out food, made sure WE ate, etc. They set everything up so well (despite my poor directions/mock-ups) and in almost no time since there was a wedding before ours. They handled all our last minute changes with ease and helped my sister and other family/friends with setting up our ceremony area (we did this ourselves) and whatever else they needed. And Stacey was always there to check on us and ensure things weren't going on too late. I'm sure we ran her ragged that day with our requests but she was as bright and cheery as always, getting whatever we needed. She was just a sweetheart; we loved her, my family loved her...everyone loved her! We were sad to see her go, but Josh slipped right in and took great care of us as well. He made sure we had what we needed and when the night ended our sparkler finale went off without a hitch. He and the staff took care of all the take down so well that the next morning we just had to move everything to our cars.
I could go on and on and on, but the bottom line is we had a wonderful wedding and we could never have pulled it off without Stacey and the rest of the staff. We really picked the perfect venue and we were blessed to have a great coordinator. Our guests were so impressed with Vizcaya we still hear about it! And my family/friends who helped with the wedding really appreciated Stacey and the staff as well. Even our vendors were familiar with Stacey and loved working with her. If I could do it all over again I definitely would. I would do some things in my wedding differently if I could, but changing venues or coordinators would not be on that list. We are eternally grateful to Stacey and the staff.
