    Absolutely the best!

    Working with Crystal at Cherry Blossom Planning Factory was the best idea anybody could have proposed. As a busy resident physician living many states away from family, my friend Anna recommended Crystal. I had been to Anna's wedding that Crystal had planned, and every little detail was so authentic and genuinely Anna and her husband that my fiancé and I knew we would be getting an impeccable service.
    Cherry Blossom Planning Factory helped us throw the wedding we envisioned completely from the overlying theme of fusing cultures: Polish, American, Lebanese, down the grape leaves and kielbasa served at our cocktail hour. When I suggested Lebanese dancers the week before the weeding, Crystal found a way to make it work. When we really our saber arch but didn't want our guests to freeze in the cold, Crystal found a way to incorporate it into our indoor ceremony. She did not miss a beat, she did not skip a detail. She kept me going when my schedule dragged me down ad she worked around our hectic military demands by bringing cake samples to our house.
    She is amazing, and she will spin up the tornado that wedding planning can be to give you the wedding of your dreams, while keeping it as stress-free as possible. You need Cherry Blossom Planning Factory in your life.

    Absolutely the BEST!

    Don't even know where to begin -- Crystal and her team are top notch! From the beginning of the planning process to the end, Crystal was consistently responsive, professional, and just a true pleasure to work with. There are times when you meet a person in their professional setting where you can just tell they are exactly in the line of work they are meant to be. Crystal is, without a doubt, one of those people. She has such a positive attitude, handles challenges with a smile, is a great listener and contributed great ideas to our overall vision while continuing to nurturing that vision. You can not go wrong with securing Crystal and her team to help you with wedding coordination!!!

    Thank you, Cat! Working alongside you and Will was a great experience because you truly knew what you wanted from the very beginning... it was just a matter of putting it all together! I appreciate how much you appreciated all of our spreadsheets, too ;) haha!

    I love working with Cherry Blossom Planning Factory and can't say enough great things about them! As a wedding photographer, the day-of timeline is crucial to making sure I am able to capture all of those moments my clients have requested from me. Cherry Blossom is organized, professional, and SO fun! They are always a blast to work with. I have referred them to my own family members getting married, and they were thrilled with their services!
