Thrilled with my Experience
Christa at A Central Park Wedding exceeded our expectations. Our initial wedding plans had to be canceled due to Covid-19. My husband and I were completely lost on how to navigate the wedding planning process during the Corona pandemic. I reached out to Christa completely anxiety-ridden and in an instant Christa knocked all anxieties out of my head. In two weeks Christa put together the most beautiful private ceremony in Cop Cot. She always was available to me, was very fair in pricing and has impeccable taste. She understands how to put together a beautiful wedding during a global pandemic while keeping your anxieties at bay. I cannot imagine using anyone else for a wedding in NYC- Christa is amazing!Sent on 07/08/2020

The perfect day
We couldn't have asked for a better team. A Central Park Wedding set us up with an officiant, a violinist, a photographer, a beautiful venue, and two coordinators, and all were top notch. We had the pleasure of working with Jennifer on the big day, and she was great at making sure everything went smoothly. We were also so pleased with the price, considering everything we got. If you're looking to have a wedding in Central Park, I couldn't imagine a better company than A Central Park Wedding. Highly recommended!Sent on 10/15/2020

Thankful to have found Christa!
Almost 100 days later and we are still on a high from our wedding! When we first got engaged, we knew that we wanted to be centrally located so all our friends could join us. Central Park has always been a special place for us so when we started researching how to get married in the park, Christa’s website came up. I immediately contacted her and I cannot thank her enough! From just a few details that we provided, she knew exactly what we wanted and made it come to life so seamlessly. She set us up with an amazing florist, guitarist and photographer. She was responsive to all my crazy questions and provided amazing support. She was with us every step of the way, including on our special day when she gave me the coat off her back between photos and gave my hungry husband a cliff bar to hold him over until our reception. I am so thankful to her and her team!Sent on 02/09/2020

End-to-end, seamless and stress-free wedding planning!
Me and my partner couldn't be happier with the whole experience! From the easy online booking to the day of our wedding, our planner Jennifer Schoenfeld, along with an amazing officiant and a great photographer she recommended, helped us organize the perfect elopement in New York, always with a smile! We had a beautiful wedding, all thanks to Jen and her team!Sent on 04/24/2019

Christa with Central Park weddings
Christa was very professional from the very beginning. I planned my wedding during covid and she was very helpful from day one. The day of the wedding she made everything so amazing and didn’t miss a beat. Everyone is still talking about my wedding. I would recommend going with a Central Park wedding And only working with her, best wedding planner. She is super supportive.Sent on 10/04/2020

We were very impressed with the complete services offered through Central Park Weddings. It made our planning and detail gathering quite simple, especially appreciated during these CoVid times. Christa was always available, and her care and attention the day before and day of our wedding celebration was unsurpassed! We would highly recommend her company to others!Sent on 09/25/2020

Intimate Ceremony...Huge Success!
My husband and I originally planned a wedding of 80+ people in Central Park's, Conservatory Garden. Once Covid hit NYC, all seemed lost. Fortunately, Christa reached out to give us some options about changing our location (it was no longer available due to park restrictions) and kept our vendors in the loop. When we finally decided to move forward with our original date, everything went smoothly, Christa scheduled a walkthrough, and we felt good about her vision for the day. On the morning of our wedding, Christa and her assistant were in touch early to assure us that everything was as it should be and met us at the park with our flowers, for pre-ceremony photos. Our family members were met at the park entrance with smiles (despite the heat) and the musicians played on cue. I can honestly say that things went better than expected. We are so glad we had Christa and her team to run interference with all of the little things, making an intimate ceremony, a huge success.
Thank you ladies so much!

Central Park Proposal
To anyone who is looking at getting engaged in New York City - Jennifer and her team is the only place you should look!Sent on 09/09/2019
Absolutely incredible experience and was soooooo easy for me (during what can be a stressful time) as she took care of all my little details and made sure everything was exactly what I asked for. I have some many wonderful things to say about Jen and her team but the only thing you need to know is you are doing yourself a disservice if you don’t choose her ! Hands down the best experience ever.
Thank you Jen!

Professional, reliable and excellent personal attention
We were very pleased with the whole service. Christa did a great job planning, coordinating before, during the event, and after in the photo session. She was fast, flexible and recommended great quality vendors. She even helped us with our streaming video service and she was very resourceful organizing the event for us and taking control of the streaming service. Everything was as expected and planned. We did not have any surprises or inconveniences. We couldn't be happier with the services provided by Christa. Thank you so much for all your help !!Sent on 10/08/2020

An unforgettable experience
I can’t recommend A Central Park wedding enough. Christa was absolutely amazing from day one. She responded to all our questions and made this process so easy for us both considering we were organising our wedding from the uk! When arriving in New York me and my family met Christa and did our walkthrough. She made us feel calm and promised everything would run smoothly which it did! I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and it is all thanks to the wonderful Christa.Sent on 01/30/2020

We can’t sing enough praises for ‘A Central Park Wedding’! Jen was accommodating and prepared to meet each question with grace.
As we have made our way home, we were so blessed by the amazing experience we had with Jen Schoenfeld in Central Park, she was accommodating and helped facilitate in ways we would have never thought we needed. The professionalism we experienced allowed us to truly enjoy our day. Jen was also quick to defend the space that our permit guaranteed. We want to take the time to thank A Central Park Wedding from the bottom of our hearts for helping to create the greatest moment in our lives.Sent on 01/03/2020

I cannot even begin to tell you, for the coldest snowy day in December 2019, how perfect the wedding turned out. The staff at Central Park wedding was so thorough and professional. I felt like everything went so smooth and beautiful. Christa and her staff helped make the wedding so perfect and made sure it was done exactly how we dreamed. I highly recommend a central park wedding, especially Christa! Thank you all again for making it such a perfect day!Sent on 01/06/2020

Amazing service from Jennifer, took all my worries and concerns away, amazing contact leading up to the day!
Jen was amazing to deal with, i have a bit of OCD planning things ahead and then worry about everything leading up to the minute but once we met Jen the day before for a walk through i was able to relax, and on the day she was second to non amazing.Sent on 12/27/2019

I can’t express how great Christa was. She was polite and professional. Very detailed and thorough. She was so kind and easy to communicate with. She made our day perfect.

Wonderful ceremony by ACPW
We just had our wedding at Conservatory garden last Saturday, everything went smoothly with no issues. We live in Canada and our guests are from all over the world. Jennifer was our wedding planner. She is such a professional, we don't need to worry about a thing! Would definitely recommend ACPW for your Central Park Wedding.Sent on 10/15/2019

Phenomenal wedding planner!
Jennifer is an incredible wedding planner. When we were nervous about the weather, she went above and beyond to ensure that we could do a special ceremony at Grand Central. It was a once in a lifetime way to get married! All of the vendors were fantastic, especially the photographer. I would a thousand percent recommend this company- had nothing but the best possible experience!Sent on 11/11/2019

Thank You for a Flawless Proposal
From initial contact to a flawless surprise proposal, words cannot describe how excellent Jen, Christa, and the team are in helping me do my surprise proposal at the Bow Bridge in Central Park.
Initial Booking: Friendly and thoughtful. The team was quick to respond and thorough in my request of where I would propose, what's included and how it would go.
Ongoing: Steady contact keeping my wishes in priority while providing insight and positive suggestions on a strategy from, how to approach the bow bridge, the proposal and where my friends and family would hide.
Day of the Proposal: The weather threw us a curve-ball as it was cloudy and drizzling. Jen kept in touch with me via text double checking whether I wanted to proceed with the bow bridge, suggesting backup locations, as well as when the rain would stop. All the meanwhile, she was corralling my friends and family to keep them hidden. As I approached the bridge Jen made sure the bridge was empty and the photographer was nearby. Luckily the rain held as I approached the bridge and got down on bended-knee to propose. As I proposed my friends and family popped out and cheered in excitement. My finance was ecstatic, completely blown away at the execution. The photographer took some wonderful shots and made the overall experience unforgettable.
TL;DR - The thought, planning, and execution into making a true surprise proposal at the Bow Bridge in Central Park made it all worth it to go with A Central Park Wedding, Jen, Christa and their team.Sent on 10/17/2019

You will regret NOT going with A Central Park Wedding for your special day!
Wow wow wow!!! Jennifer and the entire Central Park Wedding team were PHENOMENAL to work with! My (now) husband and I planned our ceremony from across the nation (CA) and Jennifer was there every step of the way and had the greatest communication and such an easy-going personality. We never had a single worry about how anything might have turned out or any confusion. Jennifer coordinated our day perfectly and even helped calm my mom's emotions immediately before the ceremony haha. We couldn't have asked for a better team to oversee our day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! And the fact that all the packages are customizable is fantastic. If you're thinking of eloping or having an intimate wedding in Central Park, you won't regret a moment. Jennifer was even able to coordinate a videographer THE EVENING BEFORE OUR WEDDING. This woman is made of magic and we can't thank A Central Park Wedding enough!!! Thank you thank you thank you!Sent on 10/21/2019

So glad I chose A Central Park Wedding!
I am beyond thrilled with the level of service from A Central Park Wedding. My husband and I are New York natives and wanted to have a memorable, intimate, beautiful wedding without spending a lot of money. A Central Park Wedding did not disappoint. Jennifer made me feel so at ease during this stressful time in life and I knew the most important day in my life was in good hands. Jennifer and Christa always responded right away to any inquiries and are so nice and professional. I'm sad that I'm already married and dont have to talk to them anymore LOL.Sent on 09/28/2019

A Central Park Wedding helped make our day perfect
When we decided to marry in New York City we only had three months to plan our wedding. We were worried that it would be too difficult with such a short planning time. Once we found A Central Park wedding, Christa did so much to help us make our beautiful wedding happen. She provided us with wonderful photography, floral, stylist, officiant, and transportation options. On the day of our wedding it was very hot and humid. She was right there with us the whole time helping to keep us going throughout the photography sessions at multiple locations in Central Park. We had a little wine accident at the end of our ceremony but she was prepared with her stain stick. She even fought off someone else’s balloon vendor who was there at the wrong time! Christa was a wonderful coordinator and was so instrumental in making our day perfectSent on 09/18/2019

Great customer care!
My husband and I both agree... working with Jenn as our coordinator not only made our wedding arranging incredibly less stressful but also added such a beautiful personal touch to our experience. Jenn is a PROFESSIONAL by every definition of the word but is also extremely personable and down to earth. She has a great presence about her and has a way of picking vendors who really match her style, professionalism and caring energy. We highly recommend working with Jennifer and A Central Park Wedding.Sent on 09/12/2019

So beyond perfect!
A Central Park wedding made my wedding day fairy tale dreams become a reality. Jennifer was there for me when I needed her! I planned my wedding for NYC from afar, in Minnesota! I had no clue this would be possible and Jennifer made it possible! The venue, the flowers... everything was done so professionally and effortless. She made the whole process so easy. Jennifer responded to all of my emails promptly. Patient and kind. I was treated like royalty!Sent on 07/09/2019

Living a dream
I actually have no words. They are just amazing. Our wedding planner was Jennifer.... and we really couldn’t dream of nothing better than what we got. She assisted in every single step, everyday of the week 24 h. Nothing was too much trouble. Guests described our wedding as walking in a dream. We would highly recommend Jennifer and A Central Park Wedding.Sent on 06/22/2019
