The Dream Team
Cheryl is literally every bride and groom’s dream come true. We got married on February 29th, 2020, with just 7 months of planning prior, and its unimaginable to think about how we could've made our dream wedding a reality without Cheryl by our sides. Planning a wedding for 500 people is no easy feat, let alone a wedding that spans over the course of 3 days. Cheryl worked with us from the very beginning- reaching out to each and every vendor we came up with. Truly, this woman has more patience than anyone we’ve ever met- which is no exaggeration. Most wedding planners we’ve seen our family or friends hire get frustrated when you come close to a decision and then renege- asking to reach out to just a few more vendors, but not Cheryl. She will do everything in her power to make sure that you do not feel pressured and are happy and comfortable with the decisions you make and contracts you sign, even if that means a lot of extra work on her part. There were several times we felt bad, to which she would ease our worries saying, “Don’t even worry- it’s all a part of the process!”
We joked with her so many times during the planning- asking her if she ever takes a break. Well, spoiler alert to anyone wondering- she doesn’t. We don’t understand how she can have the same number of hours in her day as the rest of us, but she makes it all look easy. To those of you that are very detail-oriented and particular, she is just the right fit for you. She would make Marie Kondo proud with how organized she is in her wedding planning; no detail goes unnoticed. She was there at almost every single vendor meeting, tasting, etc- never missing a beat. A couple of our vendors even praised how hands-on and present she was, saying they had never seen a planner that was this dedicated before.
Without a doubt she was a lifesaver every single day leading up to the wedding, but the week of our events- she was basically a wedding wizard. Every time we looked around or needed her, she was there! We could swear she can apparate, because we don’t know how she is always everywhere at once. We had so many moving pieces during our wedding and it was quite a production, but Cheryl handled it all seamlessly and with a smile on her face- like the classy professional that she is.
We had some deep conversations with Cheryl along the way, which just made us love her more and more. A lot of people that are in the wedding industry can fall into a mentality of “well- this is just another wedding, just another weekend to me.” Not Cheryl. What happens when someone finally gets the chance to have their dream job? You get someone like Cheryl. Wedding planning isn’t work to her, it’s a labor of love. She pours her heart and soul into every single wedding she plans. It is so easy to see how much she enjoys what she does and how happy it makes her to bring each and every couple’s dream wedding to life.
Any time we were feeling uneasy about anything in the process, she was always there in our court- making sure that our needs were met by our vendors. During the contract process she asked for so many different concessions on our behalf from our venues and vendors that we didn’t even think about. These concessions truly elevated our wedding- making it incredibly memorable for us, and all of our guests. She saved us thousands of dollars with her savvy negotiating skills and experience- well over what we paid to have her on our team. If you’re wondering if a planner is worth the money- the right one can be the best decision you make. So many of our guests commented that our wedding was the most well-organized wedding they had ever been to. This is all thanks to Cheryl.
With that said, this review would not be complete without mentioning Cheryl’s husband, Rohit. One of the biggest reasons that Cheryl is able to throw herself so passionately into her weddings is because she has the best support system in Rohit. Rohit was there by Cheryl’s side during our entire wedding- complementing her skills with his own, no task too big or too small. One sweet gesture that has remained in our minds is the memory of how Rohit put together a bag full of packed food for us at the end of every single one of our events, giving us a chance to try any items we might have missed in the flurry. You hear so many couples say that they never got to try the food they spent so much time picking out for their wedding, but Cheryl and Rohit would never let that happen. They are thoughtful and caring, always making sure their couples are taken care of. We will forever be grateful to both of them for everything they did for us in the months leading up to our wedding.
We would 100% recommend anyone to hire Cheryl, and not think twice. She is a wonderful person- very ethical, straightforward, and transparent. We once very naively asked her why she doesn’t plan outside of Austin. Looking back- the answer is clear. Cheryl is not the type of person that would be willing to compromise on her quality and presence. She wants to be there for you every step of the way. She knows the Austin venues like the back of her hand and has built incredible relationships with all of the vendors she has worked with- a perk that her couples get to have to their advantage. Austin is so lucky to have her.
Cheryl & Rohit, from both of our families to you- thank you for everything you have done for us. You are truly the dream team and we wish you nothing but happiness and success in all of your endeavors. Great people like you deserve great things, and we hope that you stay happy and stay loving what you do for a lifetime. We love you! -Neha & Vineel KankanalaSent on 04/18/2020

Cheryl is a great wedding planner!
Cheryl helped me and wife plan an amazing wedding! We had a fusion Indian/American wedding and Cheryl knew about both cultures and wedding styles very well and did an great job infusing the two. Since I had been living in another state during the planning, having Cheryl was very helpful and took a lot of stress off us! She helped schedule all of our events in the planning phase, making sure we did certain things at the appropriate time, had a lot of great vendors to choose from Cheryl schdheuled weekly meetings for me and my wife and the parents to talk through things like budget items, certain things we wanted, and feedback on our ideas. Cheryl helped a get an amazing venue for the wedding and her relationships with the venue really helped on the pricing, plus her relationships with the other main vendors, like the Indian food, the decor, cake, music, and the hair/makeup. The week of she was solely focused on our wedding, taking our calls when we needed and very responsive through the entire process. She made the wedding day very easy and stress-free as possible for us. Cheryl and Rohit made sure we stayed on schedule for both wedding day events, made sure everything was set up perfectly, and made sure to plan for if certain things didn't go accordingly. Cheryl is very detailed in all that she does and made sure it was exactly what we wanted and envisioned for our wedding. Not only did she help us envision the wedding we wanted but helped is suggesting great ideas for our wedding in areas we did not know what we wanted. Overall this wedding would not have had gone as smoothly without Cheryl. We are grateful for her and Rohit for making this special day so memorable, stress-free, and amazing! I have already recommended her to friends and family members who want to plan a wedding and told them you need a wedding planner for an event like a wedding and that you need Cheryl, the right wedding planner for your event. She knows all of the ins and outs of weddings, so easy to work with, helpful at all points of the planning and from just spending time with her during these 9 months, we can tell that she loves what she does and that is what makes her so great at it! We are so grateful to Cheryl and love everything she did for us!!Sent on 04/25/2020

Austin Destination Wedding
My husband and I are from Chicago and decided to have an Austin destination wedding. We met Cheryl during one of our visits and we’re so glad we decided to hire a planner. Cheryl was our feet on the ground and was able to connect us with a lot of Indian vendors which was very helpful. She also planned our schedules when we came to visit to optimize our time. Between Cheryl and Rohit, the execution of our wedding weekend was flawless. Cheryl even bought the perishable items needed for the ceremony since we were coming in from out of town. We were able to relax and enjoy our time with family and friends.Sent on 04/05/2020
