Can't Thank Carrie Enough!

Carrie seemingly moved mountains on a moments notice to ensure our day was unforgettably special.

We originally planned to do an outdoor ceremony. The weather forecast the day of the ceremony called for rain and Carrie helped us to devise an indoor contingency plan which we ultimately setup for. About an hour before the ceremony the weather was seemingly clearing up and my bride really wanted her dream outdoor ceremony. Carrie moved decorations, flowers, and dozens of chairs up two flights of stairs on very short notice to make our outdoor wedding come to reality as if it was staged that way all along.

Aside from the manual labor (which was truly incredible) she was pivotal in planning ceremony decoration layouts, logistical things we never would have thought of, and facilitated many special little moments like holding up toys to get my two year old nephew to look at the camera.

I am sure there are several other things I am missing about Carrie's incredible service but honestly it is only because she worked so hard behind the scenes to ensure that any potential mishap was avoided. My wife and I cannot thank her enough for making our day so special and would glowingly recommend her to any couple planning a wedding!

Great attention to detail!

Carrie was extremely personal, yet professional. She met with us at times/places that were convenient to us, and even went out of her way to come see our venue that she hadn't worked an event at before. She was extremely detailed in helping us come up with a day-of plan, and communicated with all our vendors to take the pressure off us. On my wedding day, I had a little hiccup with my dress and Carrie came to the rescue! She MacGyver-ed my dress with a binder clip and saved it from becoming a disaster during our first dance. We would highly recommend her for a couple that wants ease and less stress for their wedding!

Carrie was outstanding. We used her for "day of" coordinating and we truly could not of done this without her. She made the day sooooo easy and stress free for my bride and I.

Carrie was wonderful to work with! She made sure the day ran smoothly, took care of problems as they came up to ensure the couple didn't have to worry about a thing. Carrie was sweet, funny, professional and helpful. I hope to have the chance to work with her again in the future!
