We couldn't have been happier with the service we got with Carisa of Pink Olive Events. It was a huge comfort to us to have Carisa and her team at the helm, especially during the chaos of the final weeks leading up to the wedding and the day itself. Carisa worked seamlessly with our other vendors and everything was executed perfectly the day-of. We worked primarily with Carisa leading up to the wedding but also worked with Diana through the rehearsal and the wedding and she was wonderful as well. Highly recommend! A++

Well worth it
Well worth getting a day of coordinator to help everything go smoothly. Liz and Diana were amazing and helped make everything perfect. My day would have been totally different (stressful) without them. They set up my decorations to a T the vision I was going for and packed them all away at the end. This is very important because it would have been my family members doing this which is silly-they are there as guests and the day flies by you need every minute you can get!

Carisa has the organizational skills, calming presence, and sweet demeanor we were looking for. She is highly knowledgeable and knows what it takes to plan a dream wedding. My husband and I originally thought we could plan and organize the whole wedding, including the day of. We made it up to 3 months before the wedding would take place when we realized we were in over our heads and needed help. After hiring Carisa I felt the stress of the wedding day melt away.Sent on 09/15/2018
We had a few meetings with her and her assistant before the wedding day, where she organized and finalized just about everything.
The day of the wedding she really did an outstanding job. Among may other things she very nicely and non-obtrusively kept us to our schedule and made sure we got to do all of the things we wanted to. We were able to fully enjoy our own wedding, which I’m not sure if every bride and groom gets to say! The whole wedding flew by, and even despite some rain she kept it all calm, in control, and flowing. I now can laugh at the thought that I had originally planned to do everything myself. My husband and I are so incredibly grateful for Carisa and her team and all the hard work they did for us for our big day.

I've worked with Carissa at a few events and she is always on top of her game with details organized and everything ready to go as it should be. Not all planners are down to earth and calm but she is and I would work with her anytime!
