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!

Courtney helped us to have a Flawless Wedding
Courtney is the best. She made sure that my wedding day was flawless. Leading up to the wedding she was always making sure that everything was ready and was answering any questions I had! She really can do it all! From welcome bags, keeping the boys in check, bussleing the dress, to every small detail she was on top of it! I did not have to stress at all on my big day, because I knew Courtney had it! She even took photos and sent them to me so I could see some before the photographer could send me photos! Thank you Courtney... my wedding day was the best day of my life! If you want the best coordinator out there, pick Courtney!

Hiring Courtney as our wedding planner was absolutely one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. She is the kind of person that every bride and groom dreams of working with. From day one, she went above and beyond to help create the most perfect, magical wedding weekend. Her knowledge of the industry, professionalism, thorough communication, and attention to detail surpassed every expectation. Courtney helped design and plan our rehearsal dinner, welcome dinner, wedding ceremony and reception, as well as our farewell brunch. She brought our vision to life, and her impeccable taste helped create four breathtakingly beautiful events. Every vendor she recommended was beyond amazing, and her constant guidance, support, and efforts will forever be appreciated. From putting together our adorable welcome bags to creating a detailed timeline for each specific person in the wedding, I couldn’t have asked for a better person to help plan our big day. On the day of the wedding, Courtney was an incredible force of nature. Because of her, our day was flawless and flowed smoothly, and we were able to enjoy every minute of it. My family and I were incredibly relaxed because she was so organized, and all of our guests remarked on how immaculate the execution of the wedding was. She truly was phenomenal, and we cannot thank her enough for creating the wedding of our dreams! I would hire her again in a heartbeat, and I highly recommend her to any future brides who are looking for an absolutely incredible wedding planner!
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.
