    Coach Carly!

    Carly was the best best best vendor we had for our wedding! She went above and beyond to think of things we didn't even think of, ensure the day went super smoothly, helped with so much planning and meetings beforehand, and acted as a trusted friend. The groomsmen called her Coach Carly because they loved her and knew they could go to her to tell them what to do lol. I heard so many compliments through the whole process about Carly's work. Love love love her! Would highly recommend her for you big day!

    Saved our day!

    Carly was sweet from the start, and always willing to help. We had her jump in for the weekend of, and she took over all the last minute details that came at me. My wedding had so many vendors involved and she helped the collaboration seamless. From helping us get breakfast when no one was available to deliver, to helping bustle my dress (in record time I must say!), I didn鈥檛 have to worry because Carly and her assistant Summer were ready and available to help. I don鈥檛 know what we would have done without her. Thank you!

    Lifesaver! Don't know what I would have done without them!

    Let's just say I am so happy I used the services offered by Carly and the Willow Planning team! I used them for day-of coordination services and don't know what I would have done without them there on my wedding day. I was planning my wedding and was set to have it just 3 months after Covid began - Carly was super flexible and understanding when my wedding was rescheduled and my plans changed several times due to the ongoing pandemic. When my plans were finally on track again (after many more changes) I wasn't even sure if I needed Willow Planning's help since my guest list went down to just about 40 people - thank goodness I had her there! Carly and her wonderful assistant Jane were there every moment of my big day - from helping with me getting ready and making sure I walked down the aisle on time to distributing other vendors' payments, coordinating my live band and keeping them on schedule, reassuring me everything was fine, etc etc. Carly and her team even made sure my husband and I had a cold bottle of water during our after-ceremony pics in the sweltering hot sun!
    I could go on and on but if you're contemplating getting a planner, Willow Planning is definitely the way to go! Whether you have ten people or two hundred attending, trust me - you need a day-of coordinator at the very least. You'll get peace of mind on your big day so you don't have to worry about anything else!

I've worked with Candice of Patchwork Planning at a styled bridal photoshoot and she was a dream to work with. She made sure everything was planned for the day, organized the other vendors, made sure we had the props we needed, and most importantly she's super laid back. She goes with the flow while still being on top of everything and her laid back personality is so refreshing from the mostly stiff controlling planners in the industry. I can't wait to work with her again!

Seneca Ryan Co. Seneca Ryan Co. Wedding Photographers

Patchwork Planning is hands down our most recommended wedding coordinator! Candice is amazing at what she does, I tell her all the time she is the most organized person I know! She goes above and beyond, making sure that your wedding day is awesome, helping you from start to finish. Her personality is super easy going and easy to work with, and her love for what she does shines through!

Candice is a wonderful person inside and out. Everything she does is precise and prompt. She pours her everything into her business as well as going above and beyond for current and potential clients.
