    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.

    Fantastic Experience!

    Caitlin was awesome to work with through the entire process and coordinated with all the vendors flawlessly in the weeks leading up to the wedding (we purchased the month of package). She was very responsive and flexible and put us at ease throughout the entire process. Everything was timed and planned perfectly with a few great touches like drinks waiting for us after we walked out of the ceremony. I would definitely recommend hiring Caitlin and the team!

    Want a stress-free day? Hire Caitlin!

    There aren't enough words to describe just how incredible, kind, and damn good Caitlin is at her job. The most common advice we got from our married friends was "hire a day of coordinator," which we couldn't be happier that we did. Caitlin made the entire weekend so stress-free and was worth every penny.

    We live in Chicago, so while we were planning our wedding in Frederick, Caitlin was incredibly flexible with having meetings over facetime and sporadically whenever we were in town. She was so organized and helped reassure us that we were on track. She also was very helpful in bouncing ideas off of and making sure every detail was thought through.

    When it came to the actual weekend she took charge and made sure we weren't bothered and were able to fully enjoy ourselves. The night before our wedding, our table and chair rental notified her that there was an issue with our rental. She made sure to have a solution before talking to my husband. I'm confident that if any hiccup should happen on your wedding day, Caitlin will be sure to figure out a solution and go to whomever your designated day of contact is - not you. The other thing that really set Caitlin above and beyond is that she made sure our vision came to life. As a designer, I'm incredibly detail-oriented and she made sure she had a clear understanding of exactly how all of the decorations were to be set up, so I didn't have to worry while we were getting ready. Then at the end of the night, her and her assistant packed up all of our items and set them aside so we could pick them up the next day. It made our lives SO much easier before heading out of town. It's so apparent that her goal is truly to make sure your day is above and beyond your expectations and that you are able to fully relax and enjoy each moment with your family and friends. 

    We originally went with Caitlin because she was the event coordinator at our reception venue, but after how incredible she was, we have recommended her to all of our engaged friends! She really is the best.

    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!
