"Just wanted to thank you for helping us with our beautiful wedding. The Museum looked magical. It really was how I dreamed it would be. All of the vendors you introduced us to, worked out so well. Your assistants were helpful and seemed to anticipate what we needed to get done and the end of the evening everything went smoothly.
I copied you on the email to Tony. It was more for his information. I had no idea they were scheduled so tightly. I guess if there is anything missing at the Museum, its a small room for a Bride to wait in. Otherwise, everything was perfect, and if it wasn't, I didn't know and that is how it is supposed to be. Thank you. Still over the moon.
Thank you for lending us your crates, ect. They really helped make the entrance and dessert table look great. The flowers and photos were so beautiful.
It was great working with you, Annette. You created a great team. All the best to you in your company."

"I would like to take a moment to praise Annette Kirkhuff from Wheat & Honey Events for the amazing job she did recently with my daughter’s southern California vineyard-style wedding. Although Wheat & Honey is a new business for Annette, she has been in the industry for many years and her expertise really shines through with this new venture of hers. Annette worked with us in the months leading up to the wedding by helping coordinate all aspects of this special event to ensure that our vision for the day would be realized. Her calm demeanor, attention to detail, warm & approachable manner and high level of professionalism gave us complete confidence along the way that all would be well. When the wedding day finally arrived, she and her amazing staff took charge behind the scenes to ensure that everything moved flawlessly. Our event was everything we’d hoped it would be: warm, intimate, elegant, personal, beautiful and memorable. It was magical! Our guests are still writing us to say this was one of the most beautiful and memorable weddings they’ve ever attended, and we couldn’t agree more! I’d like to extend a huge thanks to Annette and her lovely assistants for helping make our daughter’s dreams for this day come true!"

"Annette Kirkhuff is truly gifted in her profession as a wedding coordinator. She thought of everything we needed, when we needed it and reminded me gently when I forgot, working tirelessly until whatever issue or organizational situation at hand was completed successfully. Annette was our savior from the planning stage in the beginning months before the wedding and she continued to be our rock daily as the date approached, confirming appointments, and tying up loose ends. She made sure everything was on schedule. Wedding day she and her team were at the venue hours early to assure that nothing was overlooked, that all was in place for the arrival of the guests and commencement of the ceremony.
Personality has everything to do with a wedding coordinator and the one that Annette possesses is unsurpassed. She worked with everyone involved in the wedding with so much ease and enthusiasm. Always on display is her sense of professionalism reinforcing her knowledge, experience and expertise, which she shares happily with you.
Annette also has an excellent eye for beauty and style. She knows how to put all the elements of a wedding together, so it seems to flow along seamlessly. She knows how to get the WOW factor!
Our wedding was so beautiful, elegant and enjoyable, a true celebration. Annette gets all the well deserved credit. A……… for AMAZING!!
Thank you Wheat & Honey Events!!!"

"If you're looking to experience the Best Day Ever, then look no further because Annette from Wheat & Honey Events is the Wedding Planner for you! My daughter was married last October 2016 and Annette was our Wedding Planner. From the minute we met, her warm and gracious personality put me at ease. Then throughout the planning stages, I quickly learned that she not only had a lovely and easy-going way about her, but she was also very creative, detail-oriented and organized! She offered ideas and solutions when I was struggling and overwhelmed with decisions. But most importantly, she gave our family the priceless gift of a worry-free wedding and reception. I honestly couldn't have asked for anything more!"

"Annette is a God-send! Our May 2017 wedding could not have gone more perfectly. Being a bride can be stressful and Annette's calm, kind, and easy going personality really helped ease all the stresses! She is also very creative, with an eye for aesthetics, and has valuable recommendations for whatever comes to mind... be it programming, or cost-effective ways to add special touches to your wedding that you won't regret. Annette has years and years of experience in the wedding industry so she is familiar with vendors and how to make sure you and your guests are well taken care of. I really appreciate that she really listens, is always calm and friendly, timely, and super informative. To top it off her day of coordination is simply amazing. Her and her team were great! They made my flowergirls feel comfortable, found ways around the unexpected wedding day glitches, and were helpful from beginning to end. We love Annette and grateful we chose her as our coordinator!"

"Annette was beyond amazing. For anyone wondering whether or not it's worth having a wedding planner- DO IT! And when you do- contact Wheat & Honey to help plan your special day. Annette was from start to finish professional, creative, organized and fun! She always knew exactly what to say and do so that even in moments I thought would be stressful- she handled with such grace and ease that I truly was able to relax and enjoy the day. She is an absolute rockstar in the wedding world and she was such an integral part in orchestrating and executing the #bestdayever. Thank you Annette!!!"

"Annette is a miracle! I am a very detail oriented and micromanage person, so it was hard for me to trust someone with making sure my wedding was perfect — but I trusted Annette and she didn't disappoint. In fact, she absolutely went above and beyond! She was great and responsive to all my questions through the process and was especially helpful in the week before the wedding when it might have rained. Annette called me while she was coordinating another wedding at our venue on a Sunday night to help calm me down and reassure me that everything was going to be okay (it didn't end up raining, but I was glad she already had a plan in place if it had). Everything was perfect the day of the wedding and Annette was so helpful and kind to our very big, loud, crazy family. I honestly could not have pulled it off without her and without knowing she had my back. Thank you to Annette and her amazing assistants to making my wedding a dream come true!"

"Wheat and Honey Events did an amazing job coordinating our wedding day. My husband and I got married at Quail Ranch in early May. Annette and Katie served as our day-of-coordinators, but they were always available to answer our questions and address our concerns in the months leading up to the wedding day. Annette and Katie are such sweethearts and they worked so hard to make our wedding day perfect. Everything went smoothly and my husband and I got to enjoy our day without any worries."
