Amazing to work with!

Natalie was beyond kind and patient. She was so thorough with her notes and checklists to make sure we were getting everything we needed. She answered any questions or concerns immediately, and helped ease any anxiety that we may have had. We would definitely recommend her to any of our friends getting married in Oregon. She was absolutely amazing!

Highly recommend!

Natalie was so great to work with! I was originally on the fence about hiring a coordinator, but I am so glad I did! Natalie made the entire planning process so much easier, and had so many great ideas when we got stuck with some of the decorating. Also, she has a lot of her own decor items that we were able to use without any extra charge, which saved us a bunch of money. She set everything up before the ceremony and reception (which looked BEAUTIFUL), and cleaned everything up at the end of the night. Such a great experience!

I've had the pleasure to work with Natalie with Carpe Diem Weddings a couple of times, and have a couple more weddings lined up with her in the future. She is fantastic! She takes her time with her couples, listens to their desires, concerns, and takes care of everything. Having her on your wedding planning team will allow for everything to run flawlessly. AND, most importantly, you will actually get to enjoy your big day with stressing about every little detail. Trust me, you won't regret hiring Carpe Diem Weddings.
