Chrissy is amazing!
Chrissy was absolutely wonderful to work with! As an event planner myself, it’s really hard for me to let go of an event to someone else, so choosing the right wedding planner was a big decision. Chrissy is the best and was 1000% the right choice! She was incredibly organized throughout the process and was able to suggest solutions and review our contracts for anything we might have missed. Chrissy is extremely professional and organized and her timelines and checklists were extremely helpful to keep us on track. Chrissy kept me calm throughout the process and was always there to listen and provide solutions like when our linens were not available at the last minute or plans needed to be adapted for weather. She was always available to answer random questions at all hours of the day which I really appreciated. I trust her with my life, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat. Her patience and smile always put me at ease, and I have to be honest I miss her now that the wedding is over. Our wedding day was perfect in every way thanks to Chrissy! I felt like I was in a fairytale, and she made it all come together. I will absolutely recommend her to anyone I know that gets engaged!Sent on 11/13/2019

Best 40th Birthday Ever!
I'm not one to throw big parties, but given that it was a milestone birthday and I had just reached a major professional goal it seemed appropriate to have a party. I could not have imagined a better event. The theme, food, set-up and decor fit me exactly. It was fun, relaxed, delicious and my friends were blown away. The food was top notch, the setting was perfect for my group and everyone had such a great time. I was able to enjoy everyone and the night yet not feel overwhelmed. It was perfectly planned for me. Chrissy absolutely took the time and effort to ensure that not only my guests would have a great time, but that I, someone who is not always used to being the center of attention would feel at ease and most importantly have a fabulous night.Sent on 06/04/2019
