I don’t even know where to start! Plain and simple, if I didn’t have Cyndi through the better half of my wedding, our wedding would not have been what it was. I could not possibly contain in the review enough words to exactly express our appreciation. Cyndi is absolutely, the best wedding planner/coordinator in the mid-west area. The compliments of how beautiful our wedding has not stopped almost a month later! Our evening progressed so smoothly and on schedule that we were able to relax and truly enjoy the magic of our special day. Her planning preparations & attention to detail surpassed everything we could have hoped for. Cyndi is beyond professional but also extremely personable. Her extremely fun, positive energy & personality made it very easy to communicate with her. You can talk & trust her with everything, even minutes leading up to the ceremony. She makes you feel like a friend you’ve had for years! She made us and our wedding party feel at most ease, and that’s all you can ask for on your wedding day! We keep saying how much we wish we could relive that day over and over again! And the honest truth is we would and would NOT change a thing! To any bride-to-be’s out there – If you are looking for an upscale wedding coordinator and someone you can 100% trust to plan one of the most important days of your life, I wouldn’t recommend anyone but Cyndi Basker with Celebrated Events. I have no doubt she will exceed all your expectations!Sent on 10/02/2019
So much love to Cyndi Basker & Celebrated Events!

We could not have planned our wedding without Cyndi!
We are so happy we had Cyndi on our team as we planned our wedding! We live in Denver, and planned a wedding at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart and The Century Center, and we absolutely could not have done it all without her help! She knew all of our venues and was able to recommend vendors who were perfect for our wedding! She also helped us create deadlines/ checklists/ and week of timelines that kept us and our families on track. It was a very stress-free planning experience for my fiancé and me. If you’re looking to make your event planning process enjoyable rather than a headache, get Cyndi on your team as soon as possible!Sent on 08/12/2019

Best Decision we made!
Hiring Cynthia Basker of Celebrated Events was the best thing we did for our son's wedding. We hired her jointly with the Bride's family to assist with both the wedding and the Rehearsal dinner.Sent on 12/22/2018
What you get when you work with Cynthia Basker is years of experience, deep connections to all the vendors in South Bend, a willingness to go above and beyond to make everything right and an extremely pleasant and caring person!
We hired Cynthia to work with us the last month before the wedding. She made herself completely available to us that month. She had fabulous ideas as to how to personalize the venue and this made a significant difference in the feel of the rehearsal dinner. I had overlooked several things and acting on her suggestions made the night feel much more personal and special for the couple. She also was willing to help in every aspect as we had deliveries sent to her home, she picked up items at printers and assembled and delivered welcome packets to the hotel, got the bride's dress professionally steamed, brought a steamer to the hotel for the bridesmaids, etc. She knew the folks at the hotel and made sure everything went smoothly. The night of the wedding, she cleared the bridesmaids items from the "ready room" on campus and made sure everything was delivered to their hotel. The night of the rehearsal, she stood outside in the parking lot to make sure all the guests found their way to the venue. She was completely vested in the weekend and was very dedicated making it perfect! When there was a hiccup regarding our rooms at the Morris Inn, their responsiveness went from good to extremely good once they knew we were working with Cynthia!!
I also appreciated how flexible Cynthia was with her services. I was able to pay her hourly on the front end to get great advice regarding venues and vendors without having to buy into some large full service package. However, it would have been a big mistake to go it alone without her input and we are so so grateful we hired her for the last month. The bride was at school in South Bend so she wanted to do much of it herself. Had this not been the case, I would have definitely hired Cyndi to " do it all."
Cyndi's attention to detail and making us focus on a very detailed plan for the weekend and all of the logistics was also extremely helpful. This truly made the weekend go smoothly and without much stress. Her years of experience about what works and what can go wrong was a big asset.
Finally, Cyndi is just a gem to work with. She is very diplomatic in dealing with all sorts of personalities and the tensions that can arise in planning and executing a wedding. She is able to get her advice heard without stepping on egos.
With Cyndi we got years of invaluable experience from a woman who treated us as if we were the only wedding that mattered!
We at Gable Hill can not say enough amazing things about Celebrated Events! Cynthia has the eye for amazing design and ideas. Her attention to details is outstanding and her professionalism is top notch! We always love having her at our venue.
