Stefanie Cove, Yifat Oren & Associates, Los Angeles

Stefanie Cove and business partner Yifat Oren planned both Reese Witherspoon’s and Natalie Portman’s weddings; the two and their firm, Yifat Oren & Associates, are renowned for their discretion and taste. Cove earned her planning nous via a stint as the catering manager at The Little Nell hotel in Aspen before moving to California and partnering with Oren. She specializes in international affairs, whether that means a four-day event in Anguilla (with just a month to plan) or a patrician wedding in Italy. She designed the reception for Drew Barrymore’s 2012 nuptials to Chanel heir Will Kopelman and is no diva—for one client, she spent a day on her hands and knees covering a field of dirt with hay by hand. 323-969-8656;
