Green Fox Events was the absolute best choice we made when planning our weekend at the Double Eagle Resort and Spa. Unfortunately, we had communication issues with the Double Eagle staff and were worried that they were going to miss the little details that would make the day "ours." After a string of particularly disheartening communication with the Double Eagle we decided to hire Sandra & Cara to make sure everything went smoothly, and boy, are we glad we did! Sandra and Cara were both incredibly professional and easy to work with. They were punctual and responsive, and kept great notes... it was nice to know that once I told them a detail or idea, it was immediately written down and remembered. On the day of the wedding they took charge and brought our vision to life! One of the best things about working with Green Fox is their ability to think critically on their own. Early in the planning process we had made several decisions (table size and placement, etc) that just didn't look right when they were set up. Rather than rigidly sticking to my plan, Cara made changes that, while different from the specifications, fit better into the big picture of our wedding day. I love that she was able to do that! During the wedding they kept things running smoothly – cueing the band, serving the cake, moving the heaters... it was so nice to know that someone was there looking out for our guests and our timetable without having to think about it myself. At the end of the night they packed up all of our personal stuff and dropped it off so that we didn't have to worry about it. Overall, we couldn't be happier. They definitely lived up to their motto of "no stress allowed" because my husband and I, our families, and all of our guests had an incredible time. My only regret is that we didn't hire these two earlier in the planning process. :)

Words cannot express my gratitude towards Cara and Sandra at GFE. They made our dream wedding come true! We gave them a pretty tight budget to work with, and they got it done. They set us up with the perfect vendors. Their professionalism is only outmatched by their genuine care for their clients. It's hard to write a review for someone that touched our lives as much as they did! Cara and Sandra (and their whole team) are incredible humans and wedding planners. I would reccomend them to anyone without hesitation. They are fantastic and will make your dreams comes true!! -Lindsay and Michael

I must be honest and say I was reluctant to use a wedding planner. We wanted to do it all ourself! We had a good start, my daughter knows what she wanted, an Eastern Sierras destination wedding. We are from L.A. and I didn't know the complexity of a wedding at high altitude. I am the mother of the bride and was unsure of contacts at the mountain resorts. We met Sandra at a wedding expo at Mammoth's Westin Hotel. We listened to her talk about differences at a mountain wedding. Her no stress approach sold me. Sandra and team were able to assist my needs with our daughters, and put it all together with our budget in mind too! We had no idea of the manpower it takes for all the movement needed. (and the park services' pass and 4wd). Church venue, flowers, table decor, chalet decor, organization and timing of all fun filled wedding events of the day. She took the stress off of us as her team worked beautifully under the scene creating our daughters dream wedding. Honestly, there is no way we could have given her a more beautiful wedding. Thank-you Green Fox we highly recommend you. (would use them again). My girlfriend was so impressed she wanted to use her in LA!

Green Fox Events (specifically Cara and Sandra) helped us coordinate our wedding in stunning Kerry Meadow in Mammoth Lakes. When we were asked if there was anything about our wedding day that we would change or didn't go right, we couldn't think of a single thing. And GFE was absolutely part of the reason for that. We already had a very specific vision for what we wanted to our wedding and I was willing to do a lot of the legwork choosing the vendors, so we ended up booking a week-of package with them. Even though we are once-a-year Mammoth regulars, it was going to be tough planning a wedding from a different state, so they were incredibly helpful throughout the entire year leading up to our wedding. They sent us tons of tons of vendor recommendations that we were super happy with! Where Green Fox Events really shines is the week and day of the wedding. I didn't have to stress or worry about ANYTHING. We had DIY'ed a lot of the decorations and details of the wedding (flowers, favors, signs, etc.), and we seamlessly handed off everything to Cara and she and her staff set it all up beautifully!!! Not only that, but they coordinated a ridiculous schedule for the rental set up (due to the Forest Service - the only big blip in the whole plan that I panicked about they handled amazingly) and the entire day went off without a hitch! It was perfect. We can't imagine better people to have helped us with our wedding. It was better than we ever dreamed it would be. In all honestly I was very reluctant to pay for a wedding coordinator, but they are worth every single penny. We would work with them again in a heart. Thank you guys!!!

As another local wedding vendor, I have worked with Sandra and her team for countless events. Working with the Green Fox Event team is always amazing! They are professional, organized and fun. Working with them is always a pleasure, and brings peace of mind knowing the event will be flawless and successful...because they take care of everything! Cora Coleman at Mountain Cakery

Green Fox Events helped me so much with my wedding. I had an outdoor wedding in a very remote campground, without even cell service. We needed everything from the tent to the generators to power the lights and music. We even needed the porta potties! With that said, our list of vendors and rental lists was LONG. There was so much communication and logistics necessary to make our wedding happen. They handled it. I don't understand how they remember every single detail, large to teeny tiny, but they did. These girls live and breath coordination, and it showed every time we met. I had someone with me the day before setting up from 10-6, and two people (one in the morning and one at night) the day of my wedding. I never felt out of control, stressed, and knew my event was in good hands. I left to get ready and was not bothered a single time with questions or decisions. I left it in their willing and able hands, and my wedding went down as the best day of not only me and my husbands life, but quite a few others as well! People are STILL talking about how it was the best wedding they'd attended, and I know it's all thanks to my girls at Green Fox!

Sandra and the GFE Team did an outstanding job with our son and his fiancé's reception dinner and surrounding events. Sandra's organization and professionalism were excellent. We couldn't have been more pleased. I highly recommend her and the GFE Team!

As someone who has no eye (or patience) for design, Green Fox Events was a dream come true. I got the beautiful, elegant mountain wedding that I wanted without any of the hassle. Green Fox handled all the details and created a lovely design that complemented the mountain landscape perfectly. My family and I were able to fully enjoy and appreciate the wedding because we didn't have to deal with all the stress and effort of having to plan or execute it! Working with Cara was easy and she was always very pleasant, organized, professional. She and Sandra handled all the interactions with vendors, negotiated contracts, created designs for ceremony and reception spaces, and remembered to plan every last detail so that my day went off without a hitch. I was able to simply show up on my wedding day and everything was taken care of. I even was able to go hiking the morning of my wedding! If you are looking for a wedding coordinator, I would highly recommend Green Fox Events. I couldn't have asked for more :)

Like another reviewer said, I wish I could give more than 5 stars! My husband and I hired Sandra and Cara to help us plan our wedding in Bishop, and they were wonderful. - They are professional and detail oriented, and even better, so much fun and a total delight to work with. - We did consultation calls for a few months leading up to the wedding where they gave us tons of excellent recommendations for vendors. Our florist made the most beautiful bouquet and center pieces. Our band was unbelievably good, turning the end of our reception into a dance party. All thanks to the GFE recommendations!!! - We changed our ceremony venue 2 days before the wedding due to cold weather in the mountains. I thought this was potentially going to be a disaster, but it was no big deal for GFE. All the vendors were in place, the ceremony was gorgeous, and everything went perfectly. - A week or so before the ceremony, we found out the PA system we’d rented for the ceremony didn’t have a cordless mic. I was emailing back and forth with party supplier when he responded “Never mind! Sandra worked it out!” - We weren’t planning to rent special linens for the reception, but GFE suggested some affordable rental options, so we were able to dress up the tables, and they looked amaaazing. - They took care of a million tiny details we would never have thought of. They came up with an open seating diagram for the reception, saved us appetizers to enjoy after the ceremony photos, made custom place cards for our late rsvp’s, brought platters for our desserts, set up a pretty driving sign for the ceremony so our guests knew where to go, set up a bowl for gift cards at the reception, and on and on and on. Thank you so much, Sandra and Cara, for everything!

Let me tell you a story: once upon a time there was a beautiful, smart, incredible woman named Kaitlin (my soon-to-be wife at the time) and her adorable, awesome, fantastic, incredible, intelligent (too much?) soon-to-be-husband. They lived in Los Angeles, but wanted an amazing wedding in Mammoth Lakes. So after a little digging, they found Green Fox Events & Guest Services. Who is Green Fox? Well, let me tell you: the best thing that could ever happen to your wedding. Sandra and her team (special shout out to Cara and Kristy) are top-notch. They are experienced, professional and amazing people to work with. Don't want to spend the money? First, don't be stupid. Second, they get valuable discounts that makes their services almost a wash in the end anyway. Lastly, c'mon, they're amazing!!! Now let me tell you how the story ends: my wife and I got married without a hitch. Seriously, not one. Have you ever heard of absolutely nothing going wrong at a wedding? Me neither. Look, I can't guarantee that NOTHING will go wrong at your wedding, either. However, I can guarantee that without Green Fox, you're living dangerously. Book them. Now. Seriously - right now. What are you waiting for? Thank you so so so much, Sandra & Team!!!!!!!!! 5 stars isn't anywhere near enough, but it's as high as Wedding Wire will let me go. We love you!!!!!

Brian and Kaitlin - We love you (and your story) too! Yours was our last wedding of the fall season - and was a great one to end on. - Sandra, Cara & Kristy

I must admit that it took me a while to warm up to Sandra - I was reluctant to use a wedding planner (my mom made me do it, but she paid for it too!) Very quickly, I realized how big a project our dream wedding was - and she helped it to materialize. Going through the photos today, I was reminded of what a great/beautiful day it was and I still get weekly compliments on the entire wedding (more than 2 months later) - ceremony, location, food, hair, dress - everything that Sandra helped us with. We did a part "home-made" part big-fancy wedding, and it was essential to have a professional to help us organize it. Thanks!

Hi Alan! Thanks so much for these kind words. The feelings are mutual. We loved working with you and your families. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!

I cannot say enough good things about Green Fox Events and the wedding guru Sandra. She helped me work through so many things, details, issues, concerns and ALWAYS put my mind at ease. The "No Stress Allowed" motto is true. I would let Sandra know of a concern (or major freak out) and she took it from there to resolution. I had a particularly difficult to manage venue that came with a caterer. A bit of a nightmare. Sandra is what kept me sane in dealing with the traumas and dramas of that experience (hello unreturned phone calls and emails, no written agreement until the Tuesday before the event, having to repeat requests over and over in writing and verbally...). I relied on Sandra to be our expert and never looked back. I had no worries on the days leading up to our event because she had it all handled. And on the day of our wedding, my hubby and I took in every single wonderful moment without a worry because she had it all flowing beautifully. She also managed to return each and every item that we delivered to the venue for our celebration - and as a DIY bride, we had A LOT! Green Fox also provided a bunch of great and fun rentals. Sandra was an amazing resource. She won't just send you a list of hairdressers and florists. Instead, she met with us to get to know us before going on to make recommendations for vendors so she had an idea of what styles would work for us. In addition to just being an expert and super professional, knowledgeable, organized and responsive, Sandra and her team were also so much fun to work with. We laughed a lot. I want to do it all again (minus that caterer probably!). I highly recommend Sandra and her team. You will be in the best hands ever!
