Born and raised in Spain, Vanessa’s vision is shaped by the artistic traditions of Barcelona and Madrid, and her Mediterranean sensibility is a perfect fit to the Southern California style. The classic influences of Gaudí, Miró and Oscar de la Renta inspired her design decisions, and her vivid colors of Sevilla shine in all her productions.

Vanessa Doménech is the Owner and Founder of Best Dream Weddings and the Main Wedding & Event planner. She is a member of the Association of Bridal Consultants and assists frequently different seminars to expand her knowledge about weddings and events, including South Asian Weddings. In Preparation to becoming an experienced Wedding Planner and Coordinator, I was mentored and worked with Tobey Dodge, an extremely well known and one of the best Wedding Planners in Southern California.

With Best Dream Weddings, Vanessa has broadened her vision to full service planning  focused specifically on creating an unforgettable wedding experience.

Vanessa combines an outgoing and engaging personality with the attention to detail needed to assure a smoothly coordinated event. She brings the best and most creative professionals together into a team dedicated to going the extra mile to assure success at every level.

In addition to coordinating all aspects of the event, Vanessa is a ready personal assistant through the entire process from beginning to end, assuring a stress-free experience. Vanessa is fully bi-lingual in Spanish-English, with Best Dream Weddings at the event, language barriers vanish.
