    Highly Recommend!

    I am so happy that we decided to hire Caitlin as our month of coordinator. It was the best decision we made! My family and I were able to relax and enjoy what we had spent so much time planning without any worry-- Caitlin had it all covered! She offered guidance throughout the process, she made what I had envisioned come to life perfectly! Caitlin was calm and collected, even when we had a mid ceremony medical hiccup (our officiant passed out), she quickly handled the situation, kept everyone calm, gave us options to move forward, updated the timeline and coordinated with all the vendors. It was the best day and Caitlin is absolutely wonderful!

    From the Parents of the Bride

    If you are looking for a Wedding Planner that will eliminate the stressors and offer a wealth of valuable insight for your event, I highly recommend Caitlin McGrew. Caitlin planned our daughter’s wedding long-distance and covered all the details that developed into a perfect day from beginning to end. She was observant, communicative, and knowledgeable. She is organized, personable, and a great listener. Additionally, Caitlin’s experience allowed her to recommended several preferred vendors that worked collectively with one another to achieve the wedding we all hoped for. On the day of the wedding, Caitlin arrived early to ensure that everything went according to plan. Once festivities began, she remained on top of everything and “in-tune” to even the slightest sense of concern (she picked up on the fact that my escort was running late). She was much more than just someone who coordinated everything—she was an integral part of a special day and we are grateful to have had her presence for the occasion.

    Wonderful Experience

    Caitlin did a great job as our month-of wedding coordinator. She is friendly, professional, has great advice and kept our day running smoothly. She made sure that we both ate and had a drink in our hands as soon as the ceremony was over. When a couple quirks affected the day (our photographer needed a bus to move mid ceremony!) she kept her head and made sure everything that needed to happen, happened.

My husband and I have worked with Caitlin both professionally and personally. After getting the chance to work with her on a wedding last year I referred a college friend and my sister-in-law to her business. My sister-in-law's wedding was during an epic blizzard (#snowzilla #blizzard2016) and Caitlin was her savior. She and her assistant spent the night before and the night of the wedding at the hotel we were staying in to make sure they would be there for the wedding. They fulfilled every assignment with a smile and went above and beyond in every way. If that's not professionalism to the max I don't know what is. We passionately endorse Classic Occasions by Caitlin!
