    Very Happy with Whitney Events!

    Christina and Jen were an absolute pleasure to work with and we are thankful to them for making our wedding so special and actually a joy to plan. We were on the fence originally about whether to hire a wedding planner and soon after making the decision to hire Whitney Events it was clear we made a good decision.

    They are very organized and keep you on track as your wedding day approaches. They have lists of what you should be considering 13 months out, 12 months out, 11 months out, etc and are in regular contact with you (and very responsive when you reach out) to help you slowly but surely take care of everything you need to in preparation for the wedding. It was so helpful knowing that someone was there to keep track of every detail, which meant we never had to worry about missing anything.

    Most importantly, they plan for and handle all of the little details that you never would have thought of during the last month and on the wedding day itself. On top of that, they add such a personal touch to everything and they really understood who we were as a couple. Thanks to Christina and Jen we were able to sit back and enjoy our wedding and didn't need to stress over logistics. We would highly recommend working with Whitney Events!

    Whitney Events's reply:

    Thank you Cassie! You and Andy were so fun to plan with! All of your details came together so beautifully. Your personalities compliment each other so well and YOU both were a joy to work with! Love and happiness always!

    Best Money We Ever Spent!

    When planning our only daughter's wedding the BEST decision we made was hiring Whitney Events! Christina and her team (Jennifer & Cory) were worth every penny we spent!!!
    The venue our daughter and her fiancé choose is probably the rawest space that anyone has ever seen and definitely not your normal wedding backdrop. With an extremely raw industrial venue there were challenges throughout the planning process and even more challenges on the day of the actual event. But that's were the Whitney Events team performs at their best!!! Because they are so skilled at what they do my husband and I were able to truly enjoy the entire day because we knew we were in good hands. Whitney Events had everything, and I mean everything, under control which allowed us time to dance, mingle with family and friends, and truly enjoy one of the biggest events in our lives!!
    They are a professional team who guide you through the entire planning process, they are masters at maneuvering through any obstacles that arise and with their years of experience they make it all look so easy!!! In addition, Christina has a huge network of vendors at her finger tips that can provide just about anything you need to add any special touches to your day!
    Whitney Events brought together the wedding of our daughter's dream in the rawest space ever!!! We owe the success of our daughter's wedding to Whitney Events!!! We could never have done it without them!!!
    If you are thinking about hiring an event planner to ensure that your wedding day is truly everything you ever envisioned then you need Whitney Events!!! Christina and her team will not disappoint!! Best money we ever spent!!!

    Seamless Execution Creating A Completely Relaxed Bride

    Christina and her team were amazing! They completely captured my vision and personal elements combined with the right people and details to make it all come together seamlessly. From flowers & table settings down to the flow of how I wanted the speeches, they made it all work perfectly. From the beginning of the planning process, they made it so easy to narrow down vendors. They got an understanding of what we were looking for then sent us recommendations for venues, florists, bands and photographers. It made it so much less overwhelming planning a wedding in NYC. Communication was so easy, and they are completely responsive; an email late at night or a quick text always got a response. We chatted on a regular base to make sure everything was on track. They set up payment trackers and deadlines and made everything readily available in a shared drive. Our wedding day went off without a hitch! Everything was exactly where it was supposed to be and all the vendors were taken care of. I could completely enjoy the day, just as the bride! :-) I give Whitney Events my highest recommendation for any bride or groom getting ready to plan their special day!!
