Most valuable vendor at our wedding

Chalonda’s knowledge and expertise far surpassed our expectations! She is the reason our day ran smoothly from rehearsal the night before to the sparkler exit. If I could change anything, I would have hired her earlier in the planning process. She received nothing but compliments from my family, bridal party, and other vendors for her professionalism and get-things-done attitude. Highly recommend Planning Forever for any event!

Saved the Day!

Chalonda did an amazing job! Weddings can be so crazy and unpredictable (definitely mine) but she kept everything so organized and kept everyone on track! Our monthly meetings were great as well! She really helped me navigate through wedding stuff and gave lots of great ideas and suggestions. Definitely thankful to have her be apart my special day!
