Wedding Planner or Fairy Godmother?

If anyone is looking for a wedding planner and/or decorator for their upcoming wedding, look no further than CB event + design llc. We were paired with Carina Bedor, who was our fairy god mother throughout the whole wedding planning process and day of events! Not only was she just an absolute pleasure to work with, but she had the best "Can Do" attitude. A lot of things can go wrong and don't go according to plan, but Carina always had a solution! Our wedding was just absolutely amazing and huge part of that was because of Carina. She also had this calming presence and was always available whenever we needed her. We always felt at ease after talking to Carina!! She also stepped in last minute to help with our Nigerian traditional ceremony when we were having some difficulties with decor. We can never thank her enough for all that she did to truly make our wedding dreams come true!!! A true professional!!

Lifesaver for 3 month wedding

There is absolutely no way we could have pulled together our beautiful wedding in 3 months without the help, knowledge and resourcefulness of Carina and her team at CB Event & Design. From the knowledge of her vendors and coordination with them up to our big day, to questions we never would have known to ask with our venue, to making sure our wedding day went as smoothly as possible, she did an incredible job and would definitely recommend to a friend or family member.
