When Johanna Kaestner from By Recommendation interviewed Magnificent Moments clients and vendors she heard comments like these: "I cannot tell you how much I adore Vera. I would never want to do anything without her," and "She is a pleasure to work with, calm and relaxed, which is such a great influence for the bride and makes vendors lives so much easier.
"We were utterly impressed with your ability to orchestrate the enormous details of our event. We loved your entire attitude from beginning to end. Every event has its challenges but we must admit that our event was as close to perfection as we could have hoped. We commend you for an outstanding job. You worked on our event with flexibility, diligence, patience and great care - as if it were your own wedding." ~John and Nancy Fields
The perfect background in event planning came from a professional career as an interpreter at the US Military Headquarters in Munich, were she was in charge of travel arrangements and the organization of large social events. This gained her the recognition and a personal thank you from a one star general of the US Armed Forces. After moving to the United States and graduating cum laude from Golden Gate University with a BS in Hotel and Tourism, she was hired by the prestigious luxury Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. There she received additional training in all service levels of the hotel.
From a 300 people tent wedding, military ceremonies, elaborate theme weddings, San Francisco 49er weddings to very, very private two people ceremonies, Vera has done it all. As a certified Wedding Consultant, striving for a possible 6th star in a 5 star service world is her ultimate goal. Fulfilling dreams and exceeding expectations is what Magnificent Moments truly has at heart.
