“Erin was the planner for our 250 person wedding, and she absolutely killed it. The planning was easy and the day was an absolute graceful dream. She made sure my husband and my whole family got all the food and attention they needed. I felt secure and happy that she and her team were on top of every detail from beginning to end. I'd recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat! We could not have done it without her!”
Katie + Andy
“Erin and Alyssa played a critical role in making our daughter's Santa Barbara wedding weekend so incredibly perfect and magical. Erin was there at every moment to say ’yes, I’ll take care of it’ and anticipate the need. We couldn’t have asked for a better partner. We're so so grateful. It was everything Katie and Andy had hoped and dreamed it would be and Erin and Alyssa really played a major role in that. I highly recommend Homegrown to anyone who wants a professional, dependable partner in creating magical, 'perfect' events and occasions. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!”

“Erin is fantastic! She was prompt in her responses, organized, and thinks 10 steps ahead. I didn't think I needed a coordinator for a wedding initially, but after seeing all that Homegrown Events does I realize how wrong I was. In addition to executing the day perfectly, Erin knows how to fit into the vibe of your event. She was calm, cool, and easy-going when I needed her to be. Our wedding would not have been the same without her! Would recommend or hire her again in a heartbeat!”
Kelly + Andrew
"We could not have asked for a more professional and organized wedding coordinator. Erin went above and beyond what was expected and was an absolute dream to work with. I had so many questions and I always received prompt responses from Erin. She took care of all the before details that I had not thought of prior and executed and problem solved all day of issues that came up. I had a zero stress wedding day because of her! 10/10 would recommend!"
Gaby + Brett
“We LOVE Erin!!! She was not only incredibly understanding to all our wants and needs, but she made sure we had nothing to worry about. Our wedding couldn’t have happened without her. Planning the most beautiful wedding at the Beverly Hills Peninsula in just 5 months felt impossible. But not for Erin. She truly is a super hero planner. Always so calm and collected making it the most magical day of our lives!!! I highly recommend Homegrown Event Co for anyone wanting to get married, it’s totally worth it.”
Karla + Zach
"We thought we could plan a wedding by ourselves, but when it came down to the wire we really needed help pulling everything together. By chance we met Erin at an event 6 months prior to our wedding, her personality and attitude made such a great impression on us that when we realized we needed a coordinator, we hoped she would be available. As soon as Erin was on board, she was totally on top of things, handling vendors with ease and all the while making us relaxed and confident everything would not only get done but executed down to every little detail. Erin was so instrumental in making things perfect for not only us but all our friends & family. So much so, her easy going nature and politeness convinced everyone she was a close friend or relative helping out. We can’t thank Erin enough for making our wedding day so much fun, memorable and stress-free."

"We made a lot of choices for our wedding day, and my (now) husband and I repeatedly agree that hiring Homegrown Event Co. was our absolute BEST one. We came to Erin with 2 months to go to our wedding after our venue went out of business and cancelled on us with absolutely no idea on how to start over. She handled all of our planning, communication, and details with such grace and confidence and support. Her taste is impeccable and we were most impressed with her creativity. She helped us understand what mattered and what didn't, what to invest in and how to make our budget work the most for us. We were left with a stunning event beyond what we believed we could achieve and afford with such little resources and time left."
Kristin + John
"Working with Erin as a day-of-coordinator for our wedding was such a great choice. She was communicative, flexible, and executed our vision for our wedding day even better than we imagined. Planning a wedding in Los Angeles is overwhelming and she really helped bring it all together so that we could just enjoy our wedding. If you are debating whether you need a day-of coordinator, you DO and Homegrown Event Co is an excellent choice."
Christina + Brian
"Erin and her team helped coordinate and plan our wedding of 150 people and they did such a beautiful job! Erin had to find a rental company that was within our budget and had colorful table settings and cups to go with our very colorful theme. Needless to say, she found a company that was right on the money! My husband and I are now trying to find cutlery and cups that match what we had in our wedding. So far, we have been successful in finding gold utensils! She set up the reception space to be a warm and inviting place with all the right accents that we discussed. She found an affordable flower vendor who also lent us antique gorgeous vases that went with our entire look. Thank you so much Homegrown for helping us put together a colorful and memorable wedding day, the first day of our marriage!"
Natalie + Jeremiah
"My husband and I were so appreciative of the awesome work of Erin Kruse from Homegrown Event Co. She has an amazing eye for detail and decor. She coordinated all our vendors well and made the day run so organized and smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a thing! Thank you to Erin and Homegrown Event Co. for making our wedding an amazing and meaningful day."
Erika + Adam
"We knew Erin would be an incredible planner, knowing she put together her own gorgeous wedding in Colorado from Los Angeles. We asked her to help us plan our own Colorado wedding, and she graciously and enthusiastically accepted knowing she'd be planning in LA again...with two New Yorkers. She kept us on a comfortable timeline, found us vendors who were more than willing to work with our vision and took on every task and issue we threw her way like a damn champ. Whether it was the planning process or our big day, she made us feel relaxed and cared for. She worked her butt off, and we couldn't have asked for anyone better."
Lindsey + Eric
"Alyssa and Erin were such a pleasure to work with both during our planning process and on our wedding day! They were professional, detail-oriented, thorough and upbeat, and we couldn't be happier to have had them as part of our special day. In one instance, Erin even saved me (and my wedding dress!) from a guest who went to hug me while holding a glass of red wine. This is just one example of how Alyssa and Erin managed to be there for my groom and me and yet also, organized all of the vendors, and handled set-up so seamlessly. It felt like working with friends, and we enthusiastically recommend them for all of your wedding coordinating needs!"
Kelsey + Nick
"Alyssa and Erin with Homegrown Event Co were nothing less than professional when it came to my wedding day. I knew when the day finally came that I didn't need to worry about anything. I fully trusted their expertise when it came to the fluidity and timing of the night. I highly recommend Homegrown Event Co to anyone in need of a wedding planning team!"
KAT + TOBY
"No detail was left untouched; I loved how much thought and care went into each aspect of the event. From the decor, to the color scheme, the chosen wines and accompanying foods, the location and ambience...it makes you feel really special when so much attention goes into every detail like it did that night."
"Homegrown Event Co made planning a surprise party for my best friend easy and fun! They took care of all the little details, from decorations to menu and even signature cocktails. Their planning service is creative, chic, and allows you to relax knowing you are in great hands. Highly reccomend!"
