Courtney did such a wonderful job helping to plan and execute my husband's and my wedding this past March! Based in DC, we knew we needed someone on the ground in Florida to support with vendors and getting married at my parents' home, there were a lot of logistical details to consider. Courtney made the process incredibly easy! She would email me lists of vendors so we could easily select which one we wanted (I think we always went with her recommendation, too, which is a testament to Courtney really understanding what we wanted, our budget, etc.). Courtney was incredibly responsive throughout the planning process, worked patiently to help tease out visions I had in my head and worked tirelessly with vendors until we were all on the same page. Her and her team handled all things big and small from ensuring design elements at the ceremony and reception space were perfect to figuring out how to transport people from point A to point B efficiently. One of the best things about working with Courtney, though, is that my family and I were incredibly relaxed on the day of the wedding because she and her team were so organized. If there were any hiccups, I couldn't tell you. It truly was a magical day and are so appreciative of Courtney and her team for helping to make it everything we wanted and ensuring that we could be fully present to enjoy the day. I highly recommend her services!

We hired Courtney for full planning and day of coordination, and it was the best decision that we could have made. Courtney was phenomenal! Throughout the entire process, she was quick to respond to all emails/texts/calls, provide ideas and help solve problems. There was not a single question or request that she couldn't handle! Most importantly, she immediately understood our style and our vision for the wedding, and she helped us create a wedding day that was perfect for us. We cannot thank her enough and we highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

When my daughter and I began planning her Captiva wedding, we were fortunate to find and hire Courtney for entire event planning early in the process. It was the best decision we made! She had the knowledge and expertise we needed since it was a destination wedding. We loved working with Courtney...she has a warm personality and felt like a friend. She assisted every step of the way suggesting ideas and vendors and helped translate the ideas we had into reality. She took all of our questions and requests in stride and handled all matters with the other vendors for us. Courtney kept us on course and truly made the planning fun. Wedding day went smoothly and we were all calm, cheerful and relaxed. Thanks for all you did Courtney!
Courtney is incredibly professional and truly cares about doing the very best for her couples. Every wedding we've worked with her has been great from start to finish!
Courtney is AMAZING!! I hired her for my own wedding and absolutely love working with her. She is professional, organized, dedicated and friendly. All of my guests raved about her. HIGHLY recommend her.
