Wedding Vision Fulfilled!
“Elegant. Fun. Thoughtful. Interactive.” These were the words that came to our mind when we were brainstorming how we would want guests to describe our wedding weekend. Not only did guests use these words afterwards to describe our wedding, they also added in a word that we didn’t expect: “Perfect”. “Perfect” is thanks to Chandani and her amazing team at Events by C!
The first time I spoke with Chandani was as she was getting ready to board a flight to India for a funeral. She was so professional and easy-going. She went out of her way to schedule a phone call with me and my then fiancé while she was in India so we could see if she was a good fit. We were so amazed at how responsive she was with everything she had going on. She and her team would respond to emails and texts at all hours of the day, and always find ways to reassure us when obstacles came up.
In the last few months before the wedding, we decided to add on a lot more items for our guests, such as a fortune teller, caricature artist, etc. Instead of being upset at the last minute requests or charging more fees, Chandani was so supportive and made all of our requests happen. She is also very mindful of budgets and did a far better job of keeping costs in mind than we even did!
Chandani is super organized with a meticulously kept Google folder for each couple and her timeline planning factored in potential delays so that when these delays did arise, guests were happily clueless and we didn’t even realize it until after the fact. We entered our wedding weekend to happily see everything we had been planning for months turn into a reality, with the Events by C team at our side guiding us where to go and when. And, unlike many of our married friends, we got to try almost all the food we had carefully picked during the wedding and didn’t starve because Chandani and her team made sure to give us breaks to break away and eat or would bring food to us.
Most importantly, Chandani is very sincere, sweet and respectful of not just the couple but also their families. When non-wedding issues came up in our personal lives that disrupted wedding planning over the course of a few months, she would reach out and offer to meet with us, grab coffee just to talk and give us space from wedding planning when we needed it.
Thank you for making our wedding planning so fun and for making our wedding weekend so special for us, Chandani and the Events by C team! We miss you and wish we could have you plan everything else in our lives too!Sent on 10/09/2019

Professional, Punctual, Great Personality
Chandani and her team were excellent and went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I were taken care of the wedding weekend. Prior to the wedding weekend coordination, Chandani went beyond her contract to help me with contracts, timelines, invitations, formatting, editing, and truly gave her sound recommendation based on her experiences. She is such a sweet person and I felt like our personalities clicked. I won't forget when I was very stressed out during the process, she had asked if we should get Starbucks so I could vent as well as discuss fun things about the wedding process. She was very responsive and made sure if we had any questions or concerns she addressed them asap. She is very busy but she never says no to small things you ask of her to help you with and I truly appreciated her for that. She and her team are truly the backbone you need during the wedding process as they are 10 steps ahead of you during the whole process. You will not have to worry about the small details, coordinating, and timeliness of the wedding weekend as it will be 110% taken care of. My guests keep commenting on how smooth the whole weekend was and how there were no pauses. It truly ran exactly the way she outlines the timeline. Thank you Chandani and team for everything you have done to make my weekend successful :)!Sent on 09/02/2019

Events by C will bring your vision to life!
We were clueless on how to start planning our wedding and executing what was important to us (and our families) so that there was a good balance for everything needed in an Indian wedding in our short time frame. Enter our Super Heroine Chandani. Probably one of the most special human beings ever, really! She is intelligent, quick witted, organized, knowledgeable and knows her away around the industry, patient, consistently maintains a good composure (even when communicating complicated and serious matter) and most important of all is respectful no matter what your idea is (even when they may be far fetched). The three of us got along really well and I don't think that would have been possible if she wasn't a good, reasonable and hard working person. We saw that instantly in her and she really helped bring our dream wedding into our real world within only 4 months! Yes, you read that right, we were on a time crunch and she had the confidence from the very first communication until the last that she could make this happen...and she did. We worked as a team and sometimes as a family too and that made her involvement in this special time of our life that much more meaningful. I couldn't recommend Events by C more to anyone trying to plan a special event in their life.Sent on 10/21/2019
Chandani and her team were very easy to work with and ran a beautiful event!
Chandani of Events by C is such a pleasure to work with! I have had a couple of opportunities to assist her on weddings and they always go so smoothly. She is aware of everything going on even when there are many moving parts and multiple vendors on site. She is excellent with communication and your wedding day will go on without a hitch! She is amazing at keeping everyone informed and on task! I would highly recommend Events by C for your next event! You will be in great hands and your event will be even more amazing with her talented team!
Chandani is incredible! I had the pleasure of working with her on a photo shoot. She is very responsive and spends the time to hear what her clients are looking for. She truly cares about providing a beautiful and seamless event and pays attention to the details. If you are looking for a planner that is fun and easy to work with, I would highly recommend Chandani for your event.
