    Easy, Seamless Experience

    Felicia was extremely helpful and informative throughout the planning process. When we hired a day-of-coordinator, we expected day-of coordination and that was it. What we got was so much more: suggestions about the event, careful (but not pushy) guidance regarding timeline, and helpful insights from an experienced professional in the field. Felicia listened to all our concerns and embraced what we wanted from the day. When it came time for the rehearsal dinner and event, she ensured everyone knew their roles and that all items were placed exactly as planned. We couldn't be happier with the friendly, professional service we received from Felicia and her team.

    Cms is the best!

    Felicia鈥檚 experience, dedication, and genuine care for her clients sets CMS apart from all the others! We used CMS for Month of Planning at a luxury venue in Virginia and we鈥檙e able to enjoy our perfect day while our planning team handled all of the details. Even with Month of Planning, Felicia stepped in nearly a full year prior to the wedding to assist in vendor selections, contract review, and helping guide us through the many stages of planning a luxury wedding. I cannot thank Felicia and her team enough for the superb work and for being so incredible to work with. We will miss you and wish you all the best!

    Responsive & Excellent Tracking

    I had the pleasure of working with Felicia for my wedding. Felicia is just an amazing human being to begin with, so that made meeting with her and getting our work done even easier because she was always so upbeat. Felicia is great with tracking activities, working with vendors and the venue, and uses a great wedding tool to keep track of everything and make a bride's life easier!
