I have been planning and coordinating weddings for 10 years, and have been involved with just about 400 weddings in that time. I am not only a Wedding Planner, but perhaps more importantly, I am an Experience Designer. What does that mean? I've paid attention and gained valuable experience and a strong familiarity at each and every one of the weddings I have been a part of What do guests like? When do you lose their attention during speeches, and how can we plan a timeline around that? What kind of menu do people rave about, and which signature cocktails get scooped the quickest?
Ultimately, what matters most, and what will people remember about your wedding day?
I sincerely hope to help make this memorable, fun, and special time in your life even better. Thank you for taking a moment to browse my page and my reviews, and I hope you will consider After the Engagement for your special event.
Please visit my website for more details! I can't wait to hear from you.

LOVE Courtney Tibbets/ After The Engagement
From the first call my daughter and I had with Courtney, I appreciated her candor, and experience. Many planners take kick-backs from vendors they recommend, and this is not something she finds acceptable, and I loved her honesty about that. She offers different packages, and in our case, we created the overall theme, while she offered suggestions which was extremely helpful. We communicated with Courtney for several months before the wedding, she always responded quickly and had such a great attitude even as our ideas changed throughout the process. She reviewed all vendor contracts, ensured hotel rules and regulations were followed, and made sure we and our vendors stayed on track with timing, covering all of the bases, and had respect for our budget. She is very detail oriented, organized, straightforward, flexible, fun, creative, and professional. There is no question hiring her made all the difference in the overall success of my daughters wedding! I had complete confidence in her and her team as they ran the show at our welcome event, and the day of the wedding, so we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend using Courtney and her team. She was the calm in the storm throughout, I am extremely grateful for all that they did to make my daughters wedding dreams come true!Sent on 11/07/2019

Everything I needed and more
I was referred to Courtney and her team from a friend of a friend. My fiance and I had recently moved to Australia and were trying to plan a wedding in San Diego. I'm so glad we had Courtney by our side during this experience. I have two memories that stick out for me: 1) Courtney accompanied my parents and sister to our tasting with MIHO (YOU MUST HIRE THEM AS WELL) and guided them throughout the whole process. It was amazing to hear how much they enjoyed her company and advice throughout the tasting. They still rave about how great she is :). It made me feel so good to know they were integrated into the experience. 2) At the rehearsal, Courtney pulled me aside as I had a very panicked look on my face and asked what I was worried about. I listed everything that made me feel overwhelmed and she basically took it as a checklist and completely removed it from my shoulders. I remember the exact feeling after the conversation - complete relief.
I'm glad you found this page and I hope my review offers a glimpse into the true value Courtney and her team provided during our experience. There is no way I could have done this without her and the day I walked in to see our creation I wanted to cry because it went above and beyond what I thought was possible.Sent on 04/23/2019

Courtney is absolute magic. If you don't hire her, you're making a mistake. Lock this sh*t down faster than you did your fiancé because make no mistake, she is the best. Courtney and her team are kind of like if Beyonce and Elton John procreated (unlikely, I know... but imagine the possibilities). They're talented, completely fabulous, and masters of their craft. It's so rare to work with a vendor who's not only lovely but can also execute so flawlessly. Her and Johnny created, nurtured, and saw through the most incredible day of my husband and I's life. They have an almost insane level of attention to detail, can solve problems quickly and with grace, and work together in a way that makes your day seamless and spectacular. They are also the most well connected planners you'll meet, and their network of vendors who they have created longstanding relationships with will pay off for you in spades. They're kind of like a warm protective shield that surrounds you from day one all the way to the big day. In all seriousness, I am an insanely unorganized person with a terrible memory. The sheer volume of "quick question" emails I sent Courtney's way rivaled the rate at which the current president tweets - fu**ing absurd. Court handled it all like a champ. She always had a well thought out answer, and responded at a rate that set new land speed records. Our guests have been talking about the magic at our wedding for nearly 2 weeks now and we only have her and Johnny to thank for that. Hire these majestic land mermaids and buckle up, because you're about to have the greatest wedding of your life.Sent on 11/21/2019
Courtney is a true professional- it's always a treat to work her weddings. Organized & excellent communication, but what really stands out is how much her clients LOVE her. Not all coordinators have such happy clients- and you see that when you're in the industry. We always ADORE the weddings that we work with After the Engagement & definitely recommend them to engaged couples.
Courtney is amazing! She had some really personal touches to the wedding. I love with a wedding coordinator is in control without being controlling. It makes for a great mood on all vendors. Sara & Bianca's wedding we worked together at was one of my favorites and I hope to work with her again!
Courtney is one of the best wedding coordinators I've worked with in recent years. She is funny, caring, and hard working and creates beautiful events. I always look forward to events with After the Engagement!
