    Courtney is simply the best wedding planner. We hired Courtney for full planning and my only regret is that we didn't hire her sooner! We already had a contract in place with the venue before we started working with Courtney and I wish we had waited, she spotted some kinks in the contract right away. Courtney put me completely at ease with the whole planning process. She walked us through every step, no detail was too small. She also worked with us so that we never felt overwhelmed - in fact we felt like there should be more to do at times, but it was just that Courtney had managed everything so perfectly we were ahead of schedule! She has so many contacts with vendors that we rarely had to meet multiple vendors, she connected us with the best option first and in some cases she was able to negotiate discounts. She is also so practical, she never recommended things that were going to be extravagant or outside of our budget. I'm totally not a design person and she designed such a beautiful reception, we had so many compliments on the colors, lighting, and flowers. She really has an eye for what works well and I completely trusted her. On the actual day, I never felt like anything was out of place and everything ran like clockwork. I'm sure there were kinks behind the scenes but Courtney handled everything - even swooping in to save us from chatty relatives and make sure we ate dinner! She also just a wonderful, down to earth person. Hire her!

    Wow! We hired Courtney to help us with partial planning for our wedding as we were living overseas until a few weeks before the big day. Even before we hired her she offered to create a video walk through of the venue we were thinking about booking! We communicated with her via Skype and an event planning website - which worked perfectly for us - especially bearing in mind time differences etc. Then once we were in the States she attended catering & cake tastings with us and we had a few meetings to cover all the final details.

    We feel that Courtney helped us actually save money and keep within budget! She kept everything under control and thought of things that we would never have remembered to organise. We were grateful to have her at our rehearsal and again on our wedding day as she made sure everything ran like clockwork and swiftly helped us out when it became apparent that we had forgotten to download the Mother-Son dance!! (luckily none of the guests noticed!)

    Working with Courtney and A Sweet Soiree was the best decision that we made while planning our wedding! As soon as I met with Courtney, I knew that I wanted to work with her. We used the full planning services. Throughout the entire planning process and on our wedding day, we never felt stressed. I truly think that was because Courtney kept us on schedule and would give us tasks/decisions to make along the way. So as the wedding approached, we felt really organized.

    Courtney also respects your budget and helped us to decide what was most important to us, and where we could save money. She knows tons of vendors in the area, and everyone that she recommended to us was amazing. She’s very creative and had an awesome idea for our flowers (which we received many compliments on!). She provided a detailed schedule for our wedding day, which was very helpful.

    We had so much confidence in Courtney and we knew that if there were problems on the actual wedding day, she would know exactly how to take care of them. We never worried or stressed about anything the whole day- we just enjoyed every moment. I highly recommend Courtney and A Sweet Soiree!

Courtney puts her all into every wedding she plans. I know every detail will be covered. She's always calm collected professional and fun. When facing the unexpected, she always comes up with creative solutions. It's a pleasure to work with A Sweet Soiree and I hope I will be doing so for years to come.

A Sweet Soiree is a great choice for a professional planner. Courtney is always a delight to work with. She is organized, thorough and creative. At a wedding last fall, the florist failed to leave greens for the wedding cake and Courtney quickly went into action and decorated the cake using greens from various displays. The bride and groom were clueless. I look forward to working with A Sweet Soiree in 2015!
