A lot of people warned me that wedding planning would be incredibly stressful. Thankfully I hired InStyle Event Company and that was NOT the case! We worked with Courtney for about a year and in that time we grew to adore her as a person and appreciate her as an extremely talented and organized wedding planner that proved how much she cared about what we wanted by going above and beyond to make our wedding day dreams come true. We put our trust in her, which was frankly very easy to do, and it definitely paid off. Her passionate and easy going personality is infectious - one conversation with her and you'll know what I mean! During our initial consultation my husband and I told her (very different stories) of what we each envisioned for our wedding, and she was so intuitive that she recommended the exact venue we would end up picking on the spot (even after looking at about 6 others). It amazes me how quickly she was able to pick up on each of our visions and help find a place where they intersected that ultimately exceeded both of our expectations.Sent on 12/05/2018
With her wide network of vendors we were able to put together the perfect "dream team", and on the day of we knew we could just BREATHE and live in the moment, trusting that the details of our day were in great hands. Every bride and groom deserves to have that kind of positive experience, and to look back on the most exciting time of their lives with fond memories. It makes me sad that so many people told me that wedding planning was stressful, because I know it doesn't have to be! I thank Courtney so much for our experience, and I can't say enough good things about her. If it's not clear, I absolutely give my highest recommendation for anyone considering a planner, to go with Courtney and her team. There's no price we could possibly put on the value that InStyle Event Co. brought. Thank you, Courtney, we absolutely love you!

My wedding was wonderful thanks to Courtney's help. From the very beginning she had great ideas and was always very responsive. I highly recommend using Courtney to help plan your wedding. She handled every detail and I did not having to worry about thing. It would have not turned out so wonderful without her help!Sent on 05/08/2017

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Courtney!! She is the best wedding planner in the world. She made my day beyond beautiful & special. She was always there to answer any question I had all times of the day. Even on weekends. She has an amazing vision. I told her a rough idea of what I wanted & she went above & beyond what I expected. She is super organized & made the whole experience pretty stress free & super fun. She has the best personally & is truly concerned about you.

Courtney and her team were hands down amazing! She is confident and great at what she does. My favorite part about having Courtney was her dedication to get things done. Anything my mom needed she accomplished it within a blink of an eye. Courtney understands the wants and needs of the bride and does what ever she can to make sure you truly have the best day of your life. She is responsible, reliable and fun! We enjoyed Courtney and she was a true lifesaver!Sent on 06/09/2015

Courtney was such an amazing wedding planner; she helped me and my husband plan the wedding while we were living in China. When we came home from living abroad we only had about a month to get it all together and make sure all the little details were worked out. To make a long story short, the wedding was amazing and everything looked beautiful! Yes some elements were missing when we looked back, but I had such a good time I didn't even notice and my guests had the time of their lives. I would definitely recommend Instyle events to anyone looking for a top notch wedding planner!Sent on 11/26/2014

From the moment I met Courtney at our interview, I knew that I wanted to hire her to plan my big day. Her enthusiasm, and passion for her craft are apparent when you talk to her. As I explained to Courtney the idea of what I wanted my big day to be, she got me! She guided us through the whole process: making appointments, meeting with different vendors, she was there for all of it. Ultimately, when the big day came. It turned out to be better than anything I expected. She went above and beyond and till this day people compliment my husband and I on how amazing our wedding was! We couldn't have done it without Courtney. Thank you Courtney!Sent on 01/14/2015

I would definitely recommend Courtney as a wedding planner to anyone of my friends, my wedding was 170 people and a Persian wedding .She definitely helped deal with my difficult vendors and kept the whole night running smoothly. Also she helped me stay calm and not worry about a thing on my wedding day. I seriously had no idea what was going on and could just enjoy getting ready with my bridesmaids. Everything turned out perfect and the reception room and ceremony area looked amazing. I was really happy with it all. Also right before I walked down the aisle, I was pretty nervous, but Courtney made me feel calm and not nervous.Sent on 06/18/2014

We were having trouble making decisions about our wedding, and certainly didn't know how to arrange things on our own. Courtney put the fun back in the planning. She listened to our needs, took the time to learn who we were, and found ways to add to our vision that complemented us and added to the fun. She was a delight to work with. It all went smoothly.Sent on 06/13/2014

Courtney was a God send! She was my fairy godmother on my wedding day. My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Courtney and her assistant. She took care of EVERYTHING and I didn't have to worry about one thing. I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding day. A few months before our wedding, I really wanted to find a day of coordinator but we were on a tight budget. I was starting to get discouraged because so many coordinators that I researched were well over our budget. I emailed Courtney and she was willing to work with our budget. Not only that, but we felt like we got the star treatment. That says a lot about who she is and that she really loves what she does. We got so many compliments from people about how smoothly everything went and how organized the day was. Most importantly, my husband and I never went hungry the entire night! I was really worried that we weren't going to be able to enjoy all the delicious food that we had picked out but Courtney made sure we were well fed while we were taking pictures before the reception and throughout the entire evening. We cannot thank Courtney enough for making our day so special and memorable. Our wedding would not have been as amazing if it weren't for her and her assistant. She truly has a gift! Thank you for making our day so memorable Courtney! - Nicole & AnthonySent on 02/25/2014

Courtney was a god send and we couldn't have pulled off our wedding without her vision, guidance and expertise. She listened to all our ideas and always made it about my husband and I. Not only was she professional, but it was so fun to be around her contagious positive energy and personality. We were on a strict budget, but Courtney made our wedding so elegant that it turned to be the most amazing day ever. She honestly was my fairy godmother and made everything perfect!!! We couldn't be more grateful for having her as our wedding planner and her style. I always would say when we had our meetings together, "That every bride needs a COURTNEY" and I still stick to that statement. =)Sent on 06/26/2013

Not enough words could express how grateful we are to have had such a wonderful coordinator for our memorable wedding.Sent on 02/08/2010
We started working with Courtney just weeks away from our big day. From the moment we met her, we fell in love with her energy and hit it off quickly – it was as if we were long time friends. Courtney is not only a pleasure to work with, she’s organized, creative, and listened to what my husband and I envisioned for the big day and delivered. If anything went wrong, we did not know because this girl took care of it.
Courtney, THANK YOU so much for making our day special! You will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Lots of Love,
Tameem and Myra Sabry

So I have to say my planner had to be superwoman! Not only did she do everything she said she would, she made it happen in like 3 weeks. She knew how important it was for me to have my very ill daddy walk me down the aisle and she did it! She found me the most fantastic vendors and made sure we stayed in our very small budget. And when the venue we wanted fell through, she found us a great spot. She made it feel like we had been friends for years and she just knew what I wanted.Sent on 05/28/2010
Her organizational skills are phenomenal and her creativity with our vision and small budget was more then we could have imagined. She took what was probably not the happiest time for us ( my husbands mother had just passed and my father had terminal cancer with days left) and turned it into a great memory that I will cherish for a life time.
Thank you so much for all you did for us and we wish you much success in your business you truly have an amazing gift!
InStyle Event Company's reply:I have to start by saying that I was very humbled at the strength you had. Your fathers will to be there for you and walk you down the aisle took my breath away(may he RIP) It was a pleasure to work with you. Your family couldn't have made me feel more at home, you and Jerrone have a very special bond I don't think anyone could break and I wish you two much happiness on your journey together.

Courtney really made our day run smoothly. She is true to her word - will keep all other vendors on schedule and she really makes the day easy and enjoyable.

Courtney was a wonderful help through the whole wedding process. I was a bride who had her own schedule and wanted to get things done way before deadlines. Courtney did her best to help meet my needs for my timeline. She is a great planner.Sent on 09/16/2010

Our day was truly magical, intimate and very special. It would not have been possible without Courtney's very personal service. She went above and beyond with just about everything. I especially appreciated her flexibility. We didn't have a lot of time to plan and she just made it happen.Sent on 06/07/2015
