Review MIRA Events + Design at WeddingWire



“Perfect execution”

Perfect execution, professional and on top of it.  I’ve done event planning for work events before so I knew I was going to need a pro for a big wedding.  I paid her only for month of planning, not design.  But I got so much more.  She was available to me via email long before the month of.  She helped me sort through the mess of vendors, reviewed my contracts, and met with me on site even before the month started.

She got a great deal on rentals for me, and provided multiple day of staff.  That was the best part.  And she took care of cleanup.  She was so good that we had her help with the rehearsal dinner too.

I strongly recommend Miranda to all my friends who are planning their weddings or events. Best vendor/partner I had by far.

“Everything was just as we imagined and hoped for”

Dear Miranda,

I wanted to send a note to let you know how much we appreciate all you did to make Saturday such a perfectly wonderful experience for everyone at the wedding.  Everything was just as we imagined and hoped for.  You and your team kept things moving and the flow of the wedding and reception was flawless.  I can’t begin to tell you how many people commented on how wonderful the wedding was.  Thank you for delivering everything to us at the hotel Saturday night.  What a huge help that was!

You and your team are the best!
With our deepest gratitude,

“We just had the best day of our lives”

Where do I even begin or start to describe on how we are so incredibly thankful to have met you? We just had the best day of our lives and this wedding wouldn’t have been a smashing success without all the time and energy that you put forth in planning this wedding. I am still receiving multiple compliments days later on how beautiful, fantastically planned this wedding was put together, how seamless and flawless everything went. From all the small details in decorations (which were incredible!!!) to the well-executed timeline of events to the stress-free big day, you made this wedding process and the big day a really great experience. Of all the decisions that I had to make in the past year, you were by far my smartest decision and I am forever grateful to have you as my wedding planner. I strongly and highly recommend for anyone in the bay area or Lake Tahoe areas who need an organized, funny, sweet/sensitive, fast email responder, and overall amazing wedding planner, please contact Miranda and her staff. She is the whole package and everything you could want from a wedding planner. Thank you so much, it was an absolute pleasure in working with you!

“Thank you for executing so well on the details and really making our wedding dreams come true”

Hi Miranda,

Just coming back to reality after a fabulous wedding and weekend.

I want to thank you for making our dream wedding a reality. I could not be happier with the outcome – it was how I pictured it in my head, the guests loved it and we had an absolute blast.

On the day, the weather was definitely adding stress and complexity to our wedding. I cannot say enough about how accommodating you were during the limbo we were in. First, we had to move the greeting and cocktail inside. Then they set up the reception tables under cover in the back. And of course they had to keep wiping down the ceremony chairs in between bursts of rain.

Thankfully, the sun broke through just in the nick of time!

As you know, I was disappointed that we were not going to have the one long table on the grass and before I knew what was happening, you organized moving the furniture, table settings, flowers, candles, etc., out to the lawn in the original, one long table configuration. I couldn’t have been happier! It’s such a joy to see things happen as you envisioned them in your head.

On top of that, the guest book table looked great, the linens, flowers and candles were beautiful, the arbor and draping was beautiful and even the curved chairs were perfect! And, you were right about the cake pops – they were the first to go! Thank you – and your team members – for being so wonderful to work with, executing so well on all the details and really making our dream wedding come true.

 “I want to thank you again for everything that you did for my wife and I”

Hey Miranda,
Good morning, hope all is well. I want to thank you again for everything that you did for my wife and I. Again you did a wonderful job, and any future marriages from any of my friends or contacts that come my way I will definitely give them your contact and recommend you with full backing.

“The result was a wedding that was a lot of fun, beautiful, and yet under budget.”

Divine Affairs helped us have an incredible wedding.

My husband and I are both engineers with a poor sense of fashion, so we hired Divine Affairs at the very beginning of the planning process. After getting a sense of our priorities and budget, Miranda would research various vendors and then send us to meet with just a handful that she chose, saving us tons of time. We ended up choosing a vendor in her first batch of picks in all but one case.

Since we had no interest in decorating, Miranda handled that aspect entirely, and we got tons of positive comments about how nice everything looked — one aunt said she was “blown away”. For things that we did have opinions on, Miranda deferred to us; there was never a sense that she was taking over or trying to just do things her way.

The result was a wedding that was a lot of fun, beautiful, and yet under budget.

Highly recommended.- Jen + Nick, Berkeley

“She is delightful to work with and I would highly recommend Miranda for any event or occasion”

Miranda Meisenbach coordinated our wedding on July 13th.  The venue was beautifully set up, she was very organized in meeting with our vendors, including flowers, arches, catering, Disc Jockey, beverages, and the bride and groom, plus the bridal parties every need.

We had a small beautiful garden wedding in Saratoga and Miranda did everything, to the point that me and my husband left in a Limo while everyone was still at the reception.  She was responsible and made sure the dressing rooms were cleaned out, made sure the catering company was complete in their process and ensured that our gifts and a portion of our cake were packed up and waiting for us after our honeymoon.

She is delightful to work with and I would highly recommend Miranda for any event or occasion.

“I was speechless when I walked into that room”


I just wanted you to know what a phenomenal job you on the Gala.  I was speechless when I walked into that room.  I knew you had it in you, I just needed you to know.  I have just removed the limits you had put on yourself.  Now go fly, my child.  Your talents will take you as far as you want to go.

“Miranda helped make my dream wedding come true”


My wedding was decent size (150 guests), and because we were holding our ceremony and reception at two different venues, I became so stressed with keeping up with all my vendors, due dates, etc.  The day I met Miranda, I knew I was very lucky to find her, and I knew immediately, she was the one to help.  She right away made me feel comfortable and I could open up to her. My only regret is not finding Miranda sooner.  She pulled through and then some.

Miranda met with me numerous times.  Not only did she go with me to many of my appointments, she always made sure I was getting exactly what I had always imagined (making sure each and ever detail was exactly what I wanted).  Miranda was able to coordinate and effectively handle all the follow ups and pointed out a lot of details that I had totally either forgotten or not known about.  Putting complete control in the hands of a wedding coordinator can be frightening for any bride, but thankfully not for me.  I felt confident giving Miranda control; she made me feel completely stress free once I hired her.  Now as I look back, I had no idea what I was doing.  Miranda helped make my dream wedding come true.

During our wedding rehearsal, I was very nervous about having to lead and explain to everyone how the ceremony was going to go.  As soon as Miranda got there, she thankfully took complete control and made everyone feel relaxed and at ease.  The day of our wedding, I was very relaxed knowing Miranda was there to make sure everything went smoothly.  What impressed me the most, Miranda was the first one there the day of my wedding, and the last one to leave.  She made sure everything was cleaned and packed up before she went home.

Miranda was very professional, extremely helpful, and so nice throughout the entire process. Many of my guests were so impressed with Miranda, they made a point to tell me how great she was.  I also had many of my vendors tell me that she was one of the most professional, helpful, wedding coordinators they have ever worked with.

Our wedding was a complete success.  Most people have told me it’s been one of the best weddings they’ve been to.  I’m glad everyone had such a great time and I know it wouldn’t have run as smoothly if I hadn’t hired Miranda.  Weddings require a lot of planning, and as a bride on the big day, my only worry was making sure my hair and makeup looked great.

Hire Miranda-you won’t regret it!
