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.Sent on 09/27/2019

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!Sent on 08/26/2019

Incredible Wedding Planner
Caitlin is truly incredible. We picked a nontraditional wedding venue an hour away from our home town, so we needed all the help we could get. Even though we hired Caitlin as a month-of coordinator, she was willing to meet us to tour the venue as we built our vision for our wedding and answered my endless questions quickly and with patience. At our final walk-through, Caitlin helped us build a schedule, finalized details with every vendor, and made sure we felt comfortable and prepared leaving the meeting. At our rehearsal, Caitlin managed our family and bridal party easily and quickly. It was organized and informative. After the rehearsal, my husband and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Caitlin took care of everything. She managed our numerous vendors, decorated the venue beautifully, and always made sure we were comfortable with a drink in our hands. Caitlin was always there, ready to help or answer a question. Then, after we left the reception, she packed up all our personal decors so we could pick up the boxes the day after.Sent on 08/18/2019
As a DIY bride who loved planning a wedding, it can be difficult handing that planning over to someone else. However, Caitlin’s expertise in event planning, her positive attitude, and her calming presence helped me relax and enjoy my wedding. Once I came to the rehearsal, I didn’t have to worry about a thing. She took my vision, perfected it and fine-tuned it, and exceeded my expectations. Thank you, Caitlin for making my wedding perfect!

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!
