Magical Wedding made possible by Wedding Planner
I have now been married almost 3 weeks and it seems like a dream. My wedding got in 'just under the wire'. If we had set our date a week or so later, it probably would have been postponed with all that is going on around us. We only spent about 5 months planning, but so much credit goes to Cortney Helaine, Weddings by Cortney Helaine. Our wedding was more magical that I could have ever dreamed of. Cortney asked me when we met, 'what my idea of a dream wedding' looked like and I told her I thought I was too old to have a dream wedding. She disagreed and we went to work creating my perfect dream wedding. Thanks Cortney! It was hassle free and magical! — feeling blessed with Stephen Ashley.

Cortney is AMAZING!!!!
I don't even know where to start with this review. Cortney has been so amazing during this whole process! I reached out to her 19 days...yes, 19 DAYS before my original wedding date after finding out my original coordinator had done absolutely nothing she said she would be doing. I was in panic mode when I reached out to Cortney and told her my situation. She immediately responded and I knew within 5 minutes of talking to her that she was a good fit for me. Within an hour of talking with her I had signed the contracts and we got to work on my wedding. She stayed on the phone with me that night for about 2 hours going over every single detail of my wedding and planning the day of timeline. This is my first wedding but I don't think many coordinators would have taken me on so last minute and given it the amount of time and care she did. Within the first day of me hiring her we had my timeline done and she had reached out to all of my vendors. Let me say that one more time....WITHIN 24 HOURS SHE HAD DONE WHAT MY OTHER COORDINATOR COULD NOT DO IN ONE YEAR. We were 100% on schedule for my wedding in 18 days.... cut to a few days later....Sent on 03/20/2020
All hell is breaking loose in the country, our families, who all live out of state are cancelling their plans to come, and we are unsure if they will even allow us to have our wedding (which we later found out, they would not).
My Fiance and I made the difficult decision to postpone our wedding. In comes Cortney to save the day again. She coordinated with my venue and all of my vendors to find a new date that works for everyone. Again, within about 4 hours, she had our entire wedding rescheduled. I was a mess during this time so having Cortney to take care of everything made it much less painless.
I cannot say enough good things about Cortney and her business. She is amazing at what she does and she is also kind, understanding and a blast to work with. I have told her on multiple occasions that we are best friends now and I will definitely be calling on her to plan my next wedding ( just kidding - I think I'll stick with just one). But seriously, don't make the mistake I did and just hire Cortney right away!

We went with the "day of" package and had Nicole as our coordinator. She was absolutely amazing and took care of all the behind the scenes stuff that I didn't want to deal with!! It made it possible for us to just enjoy the day and worry about nothing!Sent on 10/23/2019
