Responsive, detail-oriented, thorough - can't recommend enough!

Cathie's responsiveness, attention to detail, proactiveness, and focus made our wedding planning and wedding day smooth and easy. She anticipated our every need, asked all the questions we hadn't thought of, and got back to us so quickly when we had questions.

The day of the event was so smooth with her help - she and Deb helped put out our centerpieces with very little instruction and made the room look gorgeous. There was some ambiguity in when some of our centerpieces were coming (we had friends bring growlers from all over the country), and she dealt with that so gracefully that I didn't even know it was an issue.

Cathie also has a wholesale florist license and helped us purchase flowers at the Milwaukee flower market. I talked to her about my plans, color scheme, and vision, and she got there early and had almost everything ready to go before we even got there. It made our day assembling flowers super easy and smooth.

Thank you so much Cathie - I really hope I don't get married again, but if I did I'd hope Cathie would be there to assist again! Cannot recommend enough!

Best decision- book Cathie!

If you're thinking about booking Cathie, DO IT! One of the BEST Decisions I made for the wedding. We booked Spellbinding Soirees our 9/9/23 wedding in Milwaukee and Cathie and her mom, Deb, were literal lifesavers. Not only were they more affordable than a lot of other day of coordinators, but they were more fantastic than I could have ever imagined (even with all the great reviews I had read already). Cathie and Deb anticipated every need, were so prepared and professional, took ALL of the stress off of my shoulders, and helped execute our vision SO well. You can't teach experience and Cathie and Deb have IT. They were so sweet and we loved having them with us throughout the day but also down to business which I really appreciated. Their communication was amazing- they handled all of the vendors and everything was seamless. I am a type B bride and we didn't have a rehearsal but we didn't even need one with Cathie's guidance/direction. She told everyone where they needed to be and when, had great reminders and ideas. They always had scissors or tape or bobby pins when you needed them. They know veils they know dresses they know HMU- they helped me with everything! The decorations looked amazing (we also rented candles, hurricane vases, arch, chargers, etc. from her that looked great). I was worried initially about how we only had a short window of time to get decorate at our venue (Cafe Centraal in Bayview) and Cathie and Deb were so efficient and got everything done in record time. My bridesmaids have been in a lot of weddings and they raved about how Cathie and Deb were more impressive as Day of Coordinators than many of the full wedding planners they've worked with. I am SO GRATEFUL and happy that they helped the best day of our lives go off without a hitch!

Spellbinding Soirées was a joy to work with!

We cannot thank Cathie enough for helping us throughout the wedding planning process and helping things run smoothly on our wedding day. She and her mother were such a joy to work with.

We're so thankful we stumbled across Spellbinding Soirées while looking for a wedding coordinator. Truthfully, we couldn't have imagined our wedding day without Cathie's support.

Cathie is a great communicator and made us feel cared for throughout the process. She scheduled check-in calls during the planning process and answered texts when we had questions or needed a recommendation.

The real question is, what didn't Cathie help us with the day of? She took care of the set-up and tear-down of the venue, kept family and the bridal party on schedule, managed all on-site vendors the day of the wedding, and, most importantly, made us feel cared for throughout the day by checking in with everyone. We, our families, and the bridal party were so impressed with her professionalism and the attention to detail she had throughout the day.

If you're looking for a planner/day of coordinator, Spellbinding Soirées should be at the top of your list!

Team

Catherine  Campo
Catherine Campo
Owner + Executive Planner

I'm the owner + executive planner at Spellbinding Soirées. I started Spellbinding Soirées to help people plan, design, and execute their dream events that show off their personalities and passions.

I've been planning events for as long as I can remember, starting with birthday parties and school dances, and evolving into social events, like weddings! Event planning allows me to combine my professional strengths: organization, time management, client service, and attention to detail; and my personal passions: people, events, planning, and crafting. I've always been into planning and designing themed celebrations. From overtly themed Winnie the Pooh baby showers to more understated fairytale-inspired weddings, I enjoy turning a theme or fandom into a stylish atmosphere for social gatherings of any size (but weddings are my favorite.)

But enough about me - I can't wait to meet you and make your event a success!
