Don't Get Married Without Candy
Candy and her team were invaluable in making our day perfect. We couldn't have done it without them. Candy kept us on task in the year leading up to our day, making sure that we did the necessary tasks each month (and then week and day, as we got closer to the wedding), then provided on-site assistance the day of. She was especially essential in helping us navigate the sometimes complicated rules of our venue (Oxon Hill Manor) and the often complicated dynamics of our families. She does it all with a positive attitude and is fun and funny. I would hire Candy + Co. a million times over and have already recommended them to loved ones.Sent on 10/30/2019
Candy+Co. Events, LLC's reply:A+J: What can we say that hasn't already been said? We just adore you both and it was truly an honor to help your vision come to life. You knew what you wanted, (and what you didn't!) and asked questions when you were unsure. You listened and considered our advice and were responsive to our questions! You were a dream to work with and the whole team of vendors working your wedding agreed! We wish you a happy forever and many many more adventures (and hopefully events we get to plan) to come!! XO

The perfect partner!
Candy+Co was the perfect partner to help us bring our wedding to life! We worked with Anastasia, and we could tell from our very first phone conversation that she would be an amazing fit for us and our vision. Throughout the process, she was communicative, experienced, and just an all-around amazing person.Sent on 11/26/2019
From helping us design the floorplan to coordinating between our numerous vendors to dealing with unplanned guests and making sure we could enjoy the evening – Anastasia helped us bridge the many different components of our big day. Our wedding was almost a month ago, and we’re still getting feedback from our guests about how perfect and seamless everything was!
As a separate, but important note – one of our many deciding factors in choosing Anastasia and Candy+Co was the fact that they were ardent LGBT allies. Just one quick look at their diverse Instagram page and gallery will tell you everything you need to know about their values!
All in all, we highly recommend Anastasia and Candy+Co to anyone needing wedding coordination services!

Candy is lifesaver!!
After interviewing with 5-6 wedding planners, Candy stood out as the one planner who actually made me feel EXCITED instead of overwhelmed about having a wedding. From start to finish, she was incredibly patient, thorough, organized and responsive. Candy was always several steps ahead and all of her help took an enormous weight off our shoulders! We loved her, as well as her team, and all of the vendors that she recommended!Sent on 12/01/2019
Initially, we were really hesitant to spend so much out of our wedding "budget" for a planner but as client who had zero time to plan a wedding, hiring Candy was worth every penny and probably saved us from calling off the engagement! It was also overwhelming to even think about making any decisions related to the wedding, but Candy was extremely helpful in simplifying the process, providing reminders on key decision points and keeping us on track/schedule. She was our biggest cheerleader and a wonderful source of encouragement and emotional support leading up to and during the wedding. She was also a great advocate who got things done and coordinated with vendors behind the scenes. Overall, Candy was also mindful of keeping vendor communications separate from ours--she'd touch base when she needed our input so it was nice that she didn't copy us on a million emails.
We will absolutely hire Candy's team for any events that we decide to host in the future! A million thanks to Candy for keeping us sane and executing a beautiful wedding for us to remember the rest of our lives!
We absolutely love working with Candy+Co. Every wedding is perfectly organized down to the minute. If Candy+Co is planning we rest assured knowing that every detail will be covered. Each member of Candy's team is so lovely!
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
Very Professional and Highly Recommended.
