Carina was absolutely amazing and beyond. She saved us after a bad experience with another planner. I can't imagine what the day or months leading up to the wedding would have been like without her. Try lifesaver. And a great person as well she has fantastic ideas too.

Carina was so amazing and I couldn't thank her enough. We were very last minute and didn't decide to hire a wedding planner until 6 months before our wedding date in summer 2016. We wanted to do the venue scout on our own, before we realized that no progress has been made after 2 months of search. We booked her for the full service from finding the right venue, selecting vendors, negotiating pricing, decorating, to coordinating the event. Within 1 month, we successfully secured the venue of our dream, the Humming Bird Nest Ranch. It was far from what we had expected and surely exceeded our expectation. She is experienced and has a lot of connections with vendors in the wedding industry which gave us the options to pick and choose the one we like at the right pricing. One of the most important aspect of planning your wedding is to stay within your budget and be mindful with all the expenses. Carina helped us to keep track of the $ amount at every step. She was also very flexible and accommodating when it came to setting out the time to visit the venues and vendors with us, even on the weekend. My fiancee then and I both own our businesses which take up the majority of our time; having a wedding planner definitely guided us through the planning process and helped us to make the right decisions. I always came to Carina for help at the last minute and it was never too much to ask. We didn't plan to have a videographer and 4 weeks before the wedding I decided that I wanted to have one ( I know...) And of course I had a budget and a very specific idea of the videographer's style. She came back to me with a few options which I ended up saying no to. She didn't give up searching for the right one and 2 weeks before the wedding, she found me a videographer who met my budget, my style, and also was available for my wedding date. I couldn't be happier. If I had to do my wedding all over again I would definitely hire Carina as my planner!

I would recommend Carina McLaughlin and Tealight Events to anyone without hesitation. Working with Carina and Tealight was easy and enjoyable from start to finish. Fantastic industry relationships and recommendations, impressive responsiveness, calm and friendly at all times--wonderful to work with at every stage of planning. Our wedding had quite a few moving parts (including guest shuttles and setting up a kitchen on-site), and Carina/Tealight made it all fun and a total success! On top of all of that, the pricing options for Tealight's services are a great value (especially in Los Angeles).
As artists, we love when all the details come together to provide a beautiful environment to create incredible photography and Tealight Weddings & Events knows how to make that happen. We photographed a wedding in Pasadena that was designed by Tealight, and The Knot magazine chose to feature it because of the creative touches and great use of space.
As wedding photographers, our biggest asset can be the wedding planner. Carina is such a doll... she listens, has amazing ideas and works so well with her clients. We had the privilege of working with her last year at a wedding at the Los Verdes Golf Course and we were blown away by her talent and professionalism.
Tealight Weddings and Events is always a pleasure to work with. Carina is highly organized, talented and top of everything. As a vendor it is important to work with a coordinator that knows what they are doing and fully understands how to develop a timeline that takes into consideration all aspects of the wedding day. Carina of Tealight Weddings never fails to amaze our hair and makeup team with her impeccable communication and sincere passion for what she does. Thanks Carina&Tealight
