Fantastic Wedding Planner

Creative Celebrations was hired 1-1/2 years before the planned wedding (and welcome dinner) and throughout those 18 months, Carolyn O'Brien was always available. She worked seamlessly with the parents and the bride and groom to capture their varied (and sometimes opposing) visions to find the perfect solutions. She is patient, really listened to the needs of everyone, and worked tirelessly to create the perfect affairs. She is talented, warm, friendly, professional and extremely creative. She has achieved great respect from her vendors and her resources are voluminous.
She was simply the perfect wedding and party planner for our needs. We strongly recommend her for any wedding or other noteworthy affair.

Carolyn and Creative Celebrations are the best!!!

We had a large and complicated wedding with lots of input from family. Carolyn held our hands every step of the way, answered all our questions and guided us towards decisions, helped to manage the family, and made the whole process as stress-free as possible. She is incredibly capable, super organized, and so warm and wonderful to work with. On our wedding day, we were able to trust that she and her team had everything in hand, and we could just have fun! The wedding was gorgeous, smooth, and a really great time. I honestly couldn't imagine doing the wedding without her, and I'm so glad we had her on our team!

Timely, Professional and Personal

As the title suggest, Carolyn was very organized and cared for us like family. She helped coordinate many aspects of our elopement wedding; creating a detailed timeline, personally overseeing vendors, and being there for us at a moments notice. She was knowledgeable all things wedding related. With her help, we eloped from Ohio and Married in Cannon, Beach, Oregon. I hope this review does enough, because she did more than enough to make our dream wedding a reality.
