    A wonderful experience

    Karen and Celebrated Events were a fantastic help with our high school reunion, which was a great success. It wouldn't have been nearly as good without her guidance, support and creativity - we are grateful to have been connected with her and her team - Karen became an honorary class member and friend!

    Best decision we made for our wedding

    Organizing a wedding can be stressful, especially when it comes to finding the right vendors. Initially, we were skeptical about hiring a wedding coordinator, but I'm here to say it's the most important piece of your wedding, bar none.

    Karen was incredibly responsive, organized, and helpful in ways we couldn't even foresee. She responded to our questions in a timely fashion, and was always one step ahead of us. She was on time for meetings and always extremely professional throughout the whole process. Karen knows what she is doing and it really shows.

    A couple months before the wedding, she helped us map out our wedding schedule, wedding party organization, vendor contracts, and helped answer any questions we had. This was incredibly useful for us to envision what our wedding day would look like.

    She was also critical in the final days before the wedding, helping communicating with vendors, setup the event space, and handling any issues that arose. It was incredibly comforting on the wedding day knowing Karen was taking charge behind the scenes to make sure everything went smoothly. All we had to do was be ourselves and Karen handled the rest.

    Karen also has a great selection of items to decorate your event space like table numbers, signs, and lights. Our winery themed space looked amazing with beautiful hanging lights and wine bottle table numbers.

    We would highly recommend Karen to be your event or wedding coordinator.

    Project Manager Approved!

    We decided to go with Karen at Celebrated Events because she was recommended by our venue, Linganore Wine cellars. However, whether you are at Linganore or not, you will want to go with Celebrated Events. Karen (and her whole family) went above and beyond in so many ways. We chose Karen for Day of Coordination and globe lights (which looked great!). She was able to help suggest vendors, reviewed all our contracts and verified that everything was set beforehand. As a project manager, I can be a stickler for details, but Karen was always on top of it! She deftly herded cats during our rehearsal, and day of I got to actually enjoy my wedding because Karen and Jenny took care of everything. I am still learning about things that happened behind the scenes that they just took care of (like fixing a broken shoe for a guest). Celebrated Events was lovely to work with. I very highly recommend Celebrated Events. Your expectations will be far exceeded.
