"Val and Tiff were a godsend! Both my husband and I were so glad that the girls were by our side for every step of the way. They were both organized, helpful with vendor recommendations, and consistently communicating with us which is such a key part in all of the planning. They already had a relationship with some of our vendors, including our outstanding photographers and magnificent florists, which made the whole process so much more fun and, dare I say, easy! They were so helpful with all my ideas (and there were a lot!), and really helped me execute the vision of both my husband and I. Even on the day, I was hoping to help them place all the crafty items we came up with, but they didn't need me AT ALL and I had to 100% trust that they understood my taste and vision, which they did and undoubtedly exceeded my expectations. They even brought in some extra help on the day which was helpful, including doing all the clean up after our wedding!! If you want transparency, organization, craftiness, fun, and 100% professionals, then Valerie and Tiffany are for you. I really couldn't have done it without them, they were always such a joy to work with, so much that I wouldn't mind doing it all over again."

"Fairy Godmothers! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Our experience with BellaRu was phenomenal! We had Tiffany and Valerie celebrate our wedding with us at the Disneyland Hotel. They were hired barely two weeks out from our wedding, we needed a day of coordinators and originally thought we could have guests do the work, but BellaRu swooped in for the rescue! They helped execute our entire vision for the ceremony and the reception without having any of our guests needing to help. Since we had planned the majority of the wedding before we hired them, we explained to them what our vision was and they executed it flawlessly. We built such a strong trust in them so quickly we gave them freedom to decorate things as they saw fit and it was better than we could have anticipated. We could tell their experience in planning and coordinating was money well spent, as they helped elevate our ideas into masterpieces. They helped clean and packed everything up at the end of night and worked great within the Disney guidelines. Their professionalism, well-coordinated, get-it-done attitudes are perfect for any event! They help build and execute dreams and make every moment memorable and magical. We are truly grateful to them for making our wedding such a success and practically perfect! "

"We’ve been married a week and our guests still talk about how great our wedding was! “Luxurious”, “elegant”, “royalty”, “glamorous”, “one-of-kind”, “well-coordinated”, “hands down the best wedding I’ve been to in my life” are just a few words our family and friends used to describe our event.
We met Tiffany and Valerie of BellaRu Events at another family gathering and we instantly knew we needed them for our wedding. The professionals from BellaRu were the first vendors we hired and from the first day we were at ease knowing that our event was in good hands with Tiffany and Valerie. We described to them our vision for our wedding and they instantly provided us a plan and recommendations to make that a reality. In short, BellaRu knew what needed to be done. Once we got the vendors on contract, Valerie and Tiffany compiled all our vendors in their well-organized BellaRu Timeline and we started to see how well our event was coming along. This made us more excited as we knew our family and friends would absolutely love our event.
On our wedding day we didn’t need to do or worry about anything as Valerie and Tiffany were in control. They were at the hotel, reception, church, and back at the reception making sure all the other vendors were setting up properly, helping the bride get ready, and ensure everything was flowing according to our vision (they even managed to take amazing behind the scenes pictures). The best part is Valerie and Tiffany were always pleasant, calm, and knew how to work under pressure – they simply got it done!
Not only did Valerie and Tiffany helped with the setup, they also helped with the tear-down and clean-up. They closed-out with our vendors and gathered all our personal belongings for us to take back – all we did was enjoyed our day and the amazing ladies of BellaRu did the rest. Merely saying “hiring BellaRu” was THE BEST decision we made would do them injustice. Rather, we are blessed that our friends Tiffany and Valerie were at the hip with us from the onset of our wedding planning and are truly grateful to them for making our event such a success and especially memorable for our families, friends, and us.
Need AMAZING coordinators for your event? No need to look any further, Tiffany and Valerie of BellaRu Events are the best and you want/need them on your A-team!"
Kristal & Andrew
"We knew we wanted to involve Valerie and Tiffany to some degree for our wedding, as they are long-time friends and experts in their field. Hands down the best money we spent, and I cannot even count how many of our guests, family members and other vendors commented that our coordinators were INCREDIBLE to work with and made the wedding planning process (and day-of, to say the least) impeccably organized, smooth for us, and truly fun to plan!
Even if you have envisioned and booked most of the elements for your big day on your own, we highly recommend working with BellaRu to create a seamless and detail-oriented planning process that will leave you feeling confident from start to finish that your vision and every last detail is being accounted for. We were in contact with Tiffany and Valerie whenever we had a question or concern, and the communication--ranging from the highly organized checklists and templates, to the more informal texting--they provided was invaluable and thorough.
Following all the planning, time, energy, and resources put towards our big day, perhaps the most important return on our investment in BellaRu was in actually getting to enjoy our wedding and experience it fully, with no worries or time spent wrangling anything, as Val and Tiff had squared everything away and were extremely diligent that all went as planned. They truly exceeded our expectations of what professional wedding planning and coordination can bring to the table, and are so much fun to be around themselves. We cannot recommend more strongly to work with them!"
Alana & Dave
"These ladies were fantastic! They were so helpful with getting my ducks in a row , especially before the big day. The day of was crazy and goes so fast, and Val & Tiff just ran the show. We had a couple hiccups during the reception (we forgot the cake knife!) and they figured it out and nobody was the wiser. They have inspired ideas and real knack for design should you need additional opinions. They totally got the theme we were trying to meld into our event and it was truly the perfect day. I know it's hard to find the right people you can trust to help on such a valuable day - but they are the real deal. And you'll be laughing the whole way through with them at your side. Can't recommend them enough!"
If you are trying to find the best wedding planners for your special day, then I hands down recommend BellaRu Events. Even though I am a vendor who has worked with them, I don't even consider them "vendors" I consider them friends! They put their heart and soul into every little detail for your wedding and work hard to ensure that you feel cared for and stress-free!
I have worked several weddings with these women over the past few years and always always enjoy their energy and joy that they bring with them! They have the ability to make you feel extremely comfortable and taken care of because of their thoroughness before, during and after the wedding! Look no further for the most down-to-earth, kind-hearted and committed people in the industry! Tiffany and Valerie have your backs 110% - I wouldn't recommend anyone else! Can't wait to hire them for my own wedding one day! :)

"My review might be a little different than most others, because I didn't actually hire BellaRu Events for my wedding. However, I'm a wedding photographer and I had the honor of working with Valerie & Tiffany from BellaRu from the very beginning. I've worked with SEVERAL wedding coordinators, and I know a good one when i see one. Lemme tell you, these girls are the best! They know good aesthetic, they're super professional, and best of all, they're incredibly sweet people. Working with other nice vendors makes the wedding day SO much better for everyone involved. I highly recommend BellaRu for your event coordinating!"
Brett & Tori
"Love Val and Tiff! The venue my husband and I chose requires a day of planner. A family friend
recommended BellaRu Events! I met with Val and Tiff and fell in love instantly with both of them! We
hired them for month of coordinating and we couldn't be happier. The girls were organized, thorough, and made the day go smoothly. I was able to enjoy the day knowing BellaRu Events could handle anything that went their way. I highly recommend BellaRu Events for your

"I had the great fortune to work with Tiffany and Valerie, when I performed at a wedding ceremony
and reception at Lake Tahoe (Yes--They will coordinate your event outside of the L.A. area). They are so easy to work with, and they work to make everything simple, and they want to make
everything simple for their clients, too. At the event, all communication was friendly and with a smile.
It was a sheer pleasure to work with them, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to perform for their clients again."
"My husband and I had the pleasure of working with BellaRu on our wedding. Valerie and Tiffany were a delight, professional, and knew the details around wedding planning and re-planning. We started our relationship with BellaRu as my husband and I were both heavy in our careers with no time to plan a wedding. BellaRu explored venues & vendors which met our criteria (ocean setting/cliff) and had a detailed budget plan for us to use throughout the process. What was unexpected is that my husband and I did a 180 degree turn and decided to elope to Mexico! Val and Tiffany were quickly able to accommodate this change of plans; contacted the resort’s coordinator on the property; and researched the proper documentation to be married in Mexico with 7 days to spare. It went off without a hitch! Though we would have loved to have BellaRu there on our wedding day, the ladies were there in spirit. I can honestly say that if you choose BellaRu, you will LOVE these two gals. Over the seven month relationship, we shared wedding magazines, advice, texts, emails, and a lot of smiles and laughter. You will be in great hands!"
"What can we say?! Having the ladies of Bella Ru coordinate and help plan our wedding was probably the best decision we made. From the instant we met Valerie and Tiffany, we knew that they would get the job done! Not only are they down to earth and super personable, but they are on top of everything. Bella Ru provides many different service packages and we asked Val and Tiff to provide their services for the month of our wedding, but they went above and beyond that! They knew all our contracts front to back, all our vendors by name, and they saw the same vision of our wedding as we did...they basically have ESP!
They attended each meeting we had with our vendors and made sure everyone was on the same page. And the best part about having them there during the whole planning process was that they knew all the important questions to ask!
Getting married is a stressful and nerve-wrecking process but Bella Ru makes it easy and can provide a laugh or two to help ease those queasy feelings. They created our timeline for us with everything we wanted and our guests were all so impressed with how smooth our wedding day was.
We don’t miss the stress of planning our wedding but we miss working with the ladies of Bella Ru. Our two pieces of advice to those getting married are 1) get a wedding planner and 2) hire Bella Ru. They are the perfect team...the Bella Ru Baddies!!"

"I had the honor of having Tiffany and Valerie plan my bridal shower, and without any direction from me, they exceeded my expectations. Everything from the banners, dessert table, and party favors were perfectly tied in. They created personalized games that kept me and my guests laughing throughout the day. Their attention to detail, creativity, and work ethic makes them the perfect team. It was so nice to let go of control and be able to sit back and enjoy the day. My shower was simply beautiful and a day I will cherish forever."
"These two girls are a breeze to work with. They are really on point when it comes to schedules and keeping everyone on them. Their passion for weddings and event planning is very apparent from the day you meet them until the end of the actual event day. I have shot many events for them and every one has gone off without a hitch. If an issue did come up, they did a great job of resolving it without notice from any guests or myself for that matter. I look forward to working with the BellaRu team for many events to come."
"Tiffany and Valerie are dream-makers. When I think back to my wedding day, I think of how I didn't have to worry about a thing. I remember my mother telling me that I "had the biggest smile on my face all day" and that was all thanks to these two girls. That is how every girl should feel on their big day, and that is all thanks to them and their masterful creativity for building a game plan for the big day, down to the minute, that would help everyone stay on task and simply enjoy the event. They gave their time, energy, and creativity to help me express what was truly important for my husband and I, and allowed that to be their focus. When planning a wedding, many facets are involved from families to which vendor to use, and Tiffany and Valerie helped me overcome those challenges by being a confidant, a sounding-board, and a genuine voice on my behalf. Tiffany and Valerie truly know how to help you throw a good party, and I look forward to recommending them in the future for all events, big or small!"
"I had the pleasure of working with BellaRu events for a wedding on July 9, 2016 at the Inn of the Seventh Ray in Topanga, CA and let me tell you, they were quite the dream team! They were super easy to work with, made sure each and every detail was perfect, and ultimately created an amazing evening for the bride and groom. I highly recommend them for your next event!"
"My daughter wanted a small, intimate wedding so I thought, no big deal. Then I did some research on "how to plan a wedding" and realized WRONG, it's a very big deal. No matter the size/number of guests (we had 100 guests), the Things To Do List for a wedding is a very, very long one! And, I wanted to fully enjoy the day of my daughter's wedding, so I hired Bella Ru Events, best decision ever!!
Tiffany and Valerie are awesome ladies. Extremely organized (including a wedding day timeline!), always accessible, and knowledgeable/experienced in every area, from A to Z, no joke. They asked questions about things that we didn't even think of, and had many great suggestions too.
They met with us on several occasions to go over/double-check/triple-check "the list." They were in contact with all the vendors, and they knew what we wanted ~ from how things were supposed to look, (flowers to table settings, etc.), and they went to the venue weeks before the wedding to familiarize themselves with the layout and make suggestions as to where to put the cake, the gift table, the musicians/DJ, etc., etc.
They were there for us at the rehearsal, and early on the day of the wedding to receive the vendors, to make sure everything was set up the way we wanted, and to individually hang 37 strands of origami cranes on fishing line from the top of the canopy, and across the 20' width of the canopy!! Using a ladder and standing on an uneven rock wall in front of a waterfall and around shrubs....to put it mildly, this was no easy feat. But they did it and the effect was beautiful.
Bella Ru left nothing to chance, every i dotted, every t crossed. On the day of the wedding we had ZERO concerns, and the ceremony and reception couldn't have been more perfect for everyone.
The bonus in hiring Bella Ru is that in addition to these ladies being professionally awesome, they are that and more personally too! Beautiful, charming, funny and fun to be with.
Like I said, BEST. DECISION. EVER."
