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.

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.Sent on 04/23/2019
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.

The absolute BEST
Courtney and her team are the absolute best in the business. I cannot recommend them highly enough!Sent on 06/03/2019
We did the "Big Day" package and it was exactly what we needed. Courtney provided expert guidance and advice as we navigated our own planning. Her knowledge and experience were unparalleled and her kindness and professionalism next level! Not only was she available to answer any / all questions for the 3 months leading to our big day, she responded immediately to every email and was always happy and available to chat on the phone if we needed. We honestly could not have done it without her! She also coordinated all our booked vendors and made sure we had everything we needed for our insurance etc.. Stuff I would never have even known to ask she had 100% covered and explained every step of the way!
For our day-of coordination we were thrilled to have Johnny lead us through the day! Johnny absolutely MADE. THE. DAY. He was cool, calm and collected and ran our day schedule to perfection. It is a true talent to deal with families and friends on such an emotional day and keep it all on track and he did it with style and finesse! He solved every problem that arose: sorting a new cake stand when the one I had purchased was too small, getting us a shout wipe when I smudged makeup all over the groom's collar, rearranging the toasts last minute because we're crazy ! He had it all covered!
Between the two of them they alleviated our planning stresses and made it a perfect worry-free day! We honestly could not have done it without them!

Best Decision Ever!!
We are obsessed with Courtney and her team at AtE. From the moment we talked to Courtney and asked her, "Are we crazy for planning a destination wedding in six months?" and she said "Definitely not!," we knew we were in good hands. From afar, she guided us confidently through a process we knew nothing about, making brilliant recommendations while also allowing us to live out our vision to the fullest. She never questioned or judged our ideas - rather, she enhanced each one with great suggestions and swift connections. Every single suggestion Courtney had was accurate - throughout the process, we found ourselves constantly saying "Of course it's right, Courtney recommended it!"Sent on 05/19/2019
Our friends and family thanked us for being so calm on our wedding day, and we told them all it was because Courtney and her team were on top of it. We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect wedding day. When I got a scuff on my wedding dress, Courtney was there to buff it out with a Shout wipe. When my dad fell on the steps before the ceremony, Courtney practically was there to catch him (and never tell me about it! Don't worry, he was fine.). When we almost ran out of rosé, Johnny was there to ease the maid of honor's mind, assuring her he would make it work or get more - then he found an extra case. We're so grateful that Courtney and Johnny made our dreams come true. Don't question your gut - book AtE now!
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!
