Amazing all around
Where to begin....Caroline is AMAZING!! Look no further and hire her to help you plan the day of your dream. My husband and I are both active duty Army and he was deployed when we started to plan our wedding. Caroline agreed to meet via video chat for an interview and we knew right away that she would be the one to help plan our wedding. We got married in Boerne TX, but when we started to plan I was living in Maryland and my Husband was in Kuwait. She even visited the venue for us, to make sure we would be satisfied with our choice from afar.
She is calm, extremely knowledgeable, and an absolute professional. She made our dream wedding day come true. She was always prompt and detailed in her responses. The "Aisle Planner" program that she uses to share with the bride and groom is user-friendly and really helped us stay on track. She gave us advice and helped us EVERY SINGLE STEP of the way, from the wording of the invitation to the most detailed rehearsal and wedding day timeline to my last minute requests and ideas. She coordinated with every vendor the week of the wedding, I was calm and assured throughout our time planning because of her. She is an amazing planner/coordinator and we feel lucky and blessed to have found and worked with her.Sent on 11/17/2019

The BEST of the BEST!!!
Where do I even begin... Caroline is absolutely the most excellent, professional and caring wedding planner (aka. angel on Earth) I have ever met! It is hard for me to put into words the love I have for her. She truly went above and beyond what I could have imagined and helped me to bring my (somewhat crazy) wedding ideas to life! From the very beginning, I knew I needed a special person to help me pull off the "Wurst Wedding Ever"... I interviewed 3 wedding planners, including Caroline. Right off the bat, Caroline was the ONLY person to catch that I had the wrong date on my save the date mock-ups (I wish I could say that I did this on purpose, but NO it was really just a typo!). Not only does Caroline have an eye for detail, but her sense of calm and great attitude truly helped me to let go and actually relax and ENJOY my wedding day...something that I thought would NEVER happen (as I am a very type A personality when it comes to design and I prefer things done a certain way). Another thing that really stood out to me with Caroline is that she told me, "I am your wedding planner from the day you hire me." That is something rare to find in this crazy wedding market, and she was not lying. Caroline was truly in my corner from start to finish, and I could just cry happy tears forever thinking about how much she has supported us through our year + of wedding planning. Every crazy wedding idea I had, she took with stride and did not let it phase her one bit. November 24th, 2018 was indeed the BEST "Wurst Wedding" EVER, and none of it could have been possible without Caroline. I truly believe that she is the best of the best... I would trust her with my life. Thank you, Caroline, from the bottom of my heart. With Love, Mrs. ConawaySent on 12/03/2018

Thank you, Caroline!
I can't say enough about how great the whole experience has been working with Caroline. I am not typically one to write reviews but she really knocked it out of the park. She provided such calm and reassurance as we worked to navigate all of the many crazy details that made our wedding such a success. Hiring her was the best decision we made as a couple and one that I would do a thousand times over. Without her our wedding could never have gone as smoothly as it did. Her professionalism and attention to detail are unparalleled. Thank you, Caroline, for everything!Sent on 12/04/2018

Caroline was amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She helped to guide my wife and I throughout this entire process bringing our dream wedding to life. Her professionalism and calm demeanor was perfect for keeping my wife and I on track. If you are looking for a wedding planner, Caroline should be number one on your list.Sent on 11/17/2019

We recently had our wedding with Volare Wedding & Event Planning as a full-service wedding planner. Caroline was very helpful and calm throughout the whole wedding planning process. The wedding was so fun and beautiful, everyone commented on how nice of a wedding it was! Caroline gave the idea of biodegradable snow for the send off and it turned out amazing for a January wedding (I attached a photo below). Thanks Caroline!Sent on 02/05/2018
Bridget · Married on 01/20/2018
We hired Caroline for full service wedding planning almost a year prior to the wedding. Absolutely the best money I have ever spent. She was amazing! She is the most organized, calm person that I have ever met. We had a large wedding and we could not have done it without her. She suggested, I believe, the best vendors in town. She also had great ideas for decorating. My daughter and I both work full time and we could have not done it without her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an awesome wedding planner!Sent on 03/13/2018
Bailey · Married on 01/13/2018
We hired Caroline to be our "weekend of coordinator" for our January 2018 wedding, but she was far beyond that! I planned our New Braunfels wedding myself while living in Dallas and Caroline's website on AislePlanner was a very useful tool to keep Caroline and I on the same page. She used her rentals contact to get me a great deal on linens, plates, silverware, etc! We met with her twice in person over an 8 month period including a venue walk through PLUS months of e-mails, text messages and phone calls. Even though she was my "day of coordinator," she made sure I was on track through the whole planning process! We had a little under 400 people at our wedding and I know that isn't easy for any coordinator to deal with, but Caroline did an amazing job making the evening go as smooth as possible! She always has a smile on her face with a great attitude!Sent on 04/04/2018

It was an absolute pleasure working with Caroline – she’s the best! We interviewed a dozen or so “month of” wedding coordinators in the area and she was so much more to us than that! We hired her because she was genuine, had excellent connections in the industry, had foresight into our preferences and what we would need, and used incredibly helpful planning tools like AislePlanner.com.
Throughout the planning process, even beyond just one month before the wedding, Caroline was very responsive and always answered my endless emails and questions. She was impeccably organized despite the millions of small details I was trying to arrange with a dozen vendors last minute and kept it all straight - while even catching my typos! In general, I think of myself as an organized person and I am incredibly impressed because she was well beyond me!
She thought of extra details that I had missed and always offered specific suggestions with pictures and links. Even more, she was a great problem solver – when there was something we wanted but the vendor couldn’t provide, she thought of solution after solution and always advocated for our needs to the vendors.
On the day of our wedding, she worked so well with all of our vendors and with the many questions from my family members. She literally sprinted to me when I got makeup on my dress to clean it and made sure everything went off without a hitch. We were running behind our schedule because our photos took longer than anticipated, but she adapted the schedule so everything was natural, easy, and stress-free. She also told me not to worry about anything so she handled the decision making while my groom and I could completely enjoy our wedding day!
Caroline truly went above and beyond in all areas (from storing our wedding items to negotiating our tricky table arrangements to having her assistant assist with our champagne toast to handling all decision making on the wedding day) and I can’t recommend her enough!Sent on 11/15/2017

We had our wedding weeks ago, with Caroline as our Day Of Coordinator, and I am STILL hearing about how amazing it was and how perfectly everything went! I have to agree with another review...five stars does not do Caroline justice. I am a super detail-oriented and organized person, and wanted someone to take the reigns on our wedding day. In addition, my husband and I are both professionals and needed quite a bit of help planning the actual wedding. Caroline did that, flawlessly, and so much more. I could not have asked for a more attentive, proactive, honest, and hard working coordinator. She is incredibly thoughtful and a great listener, and as a result, understood exactly how I envisioned our day going. She is honest and gives feedback about ideas/suggestions on everything from vendors and food to palette colors and song choice. She is thoroughly communicative, and followed through with every one of our vendors throughout the entire planning process to ensure that our timeline flowed seamlessly and our contracts were appropriate. She keeps you on a timeline without you even realizing it, and sees potential conflicts before they happen. My parents and in-laws all raved about how professional, friendly, and talented she is! Caroline exceeded my expectations on every level, and I am not necessarily an easy person to please. I would recommend Caroline to any one of my family members or friends without hesitation, and am so grateful that I found her! Our wedding was an amazing and fun experience and it was largely due to her talent and skills. Thank you Caroline, from us and from our families!!Sent on 05/23/2017

Caroline is amazing!! I met with several wedding planners before I finally found her. I wanted someone to help with “last month details and day off” services. She was one of the few who was straightforward on her packages from her website. I think I knew she'd be perfect for the job even from our first phone conversation! Caroline is genuine, respectful, diligent, and extremely organized! She made a point to understand my vision, made recommendations, and helped me with so many details - even proofread my programs! We had so many tiny details incorporated into our wedding (we had our own centerpieces, many decorations from home, even same day rehearsal!). I was truly amazed at how she did everything it took for things to come out the way I wanted. During the planning process, Caroline would complete things on my to do list before me without even asking! She took care of getting a million people on the same page, advocated for me, and truly went above what I expected. The planning website program she works with is excellent and it is extremely user friendly. My photographer was so impressed with her timeline that he was like “Who is this wedding planner, and where did you find her?!”. Our wedding day was beyond perfect, and I can honestly say it would have not been so perfect without Caroline's help. Because of Caroline, my now husband and I were able to truly enjoy our perfect day without a worry!! I cannot stress how much having Caroline made my life a million times easier. I recommend her to everyone, and to people who do not think they need a wedding planner! She is 200% worth it! :)Sent on 12/23/2016

Five stars doesn't do Volare justice. Quite simply, my dream wedding would not have been possible without Caroline's planning assistance. Her proactive nature, unparalleled attention to deal and genuine caring nature makes her the absolute best in the business. She anticipated my needs, had a solution for every problem and absolutely blew me away with how on top of everything she was every step along the way. She went above and beyond in advocating for me with my vendors, saving me significant time and money. I'm in debt to Caroline for ensuring my wedding day was everything I had hoped for and more. I couldn't recommend her enough!Sent on 10/16/2016

If you’re looking for a day-of wedding coordinator, this is your dream company. Volare Wedding & Event Planning (Caroline) is professional, courteous, insightful, easy to work with, prompt, and genuinely caring. This company more than pays for itself, going above and beyond contractual expectations. My (now) husband and I have very demanding careers with little “spare” time. We have not been to many weddings and were unsure of the planning intricacies (timelines and order of events, “wedding day emergency kit” supplies, typical “problems” encountered on wedding day, reliable vendors in the area, what information to put on a ceremony program, etc.). Caroline had prompt answers to all of these questions and provided example lists, her experienced ideas, and a user-friendly online software program that essentially creates your timeline and seating chart (highly recommended!). She even helped us to secure vendors for our wedding, something she was not contracted to do. She went above and beyond by offering to pick up linen napkins from a vendor that didn’t deliver to our venue (keep in mind we hired her for “day-of services” only) AND surprised us further by returning them after our wedding. She also provided her own beverage trough, free of charge, that we filled with water bottles for our guests. Our wedding had a few mishaps (nothing more than what would be expected); however, my husband and I will probably never truly know about all of them because Caroline was there, aware of it all, and took care of everything in a professional and efficient manner. She is the behind-the-scenes hero that allowed us to enjoy our wedding day. Thank you Volare Wedding & Event Planning! We will continue to recommend you to our friends, family, and colleagues.Sent on 09/25/2016

Caroline was the best wedding planner we could have hoped for. We got the 'month of' wedding package, but she did so much more work that just the month of our wedding. She met with my now wife and me a few times before the wedding to make sure our planning was going well and we weren't missing anything. She went far beyond just meeting with us and suggested vendors as well. She was always available to email or text and responded very quickly. Had we known how good she is, we would have had her plan the whole thing!Sent on 09/28/2016
The day of our wedding went beautifully. I'm sure there were a few issues on our wedding day, that's unavoidable, but we didn't hear about them. Caroline took care of everything, and we just got to enjoy our day.
Thank you, Caroline of Volare Wedding and Event Planning for everything!

My sister was recently married, and I was overjoyed to be her maid of honor. However, I was also nervous, as I wanted every detail of her wedding to be perfect. I needn't have worried; Caroline seamlessly planned and organized a beautiful wedding.

Caroline, of Volare Wedding & Event Planning, was a total lifesaver when it came to my wedding! I am a pretty organized person, and I planned on doing the majority of planning on my own with some help from family/friends. However, I quickly realized that I might be in over my head.Sent on 09/24/2012
Caroline helped me with things that I never would have thought of own my own to my make my wedding day (and weekend) go smoothly. She met with me regularly leading up to the wedding to go over checklists to make sure everything was ready to go. She was available with answers and advice any time I needed her.
Caroline helped create an itinerary for my destination wedding for family and friends travelling in for the rehearsal, other pre-wedding activities, and wedding day. She also helped me with a detailed timeline of the wedding day to keep everyone involved (from the wedding party, to the caterers, to the DJ) organized and in the right place at the right time.
On the day of my wedding, I felt so confident having Caroline assisting with all the finishing touches, as she helped coordinate vendors and place table decorations. While I was relaxing and preparing for the wedding ceremony, Caroline was just a text message or call away to take care of anything I needed.
During the ceremony and reception, Caroline was there to direct the wedding party and guests to their places. She also took care of cleaning up any personal items at the end of the night, so my husband and I (along with our parents and attendants) could focus on enjoying ourselves.
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and the last thing you want to do is stress over every detail and every minor task on the day of your wedding. In this respect, Caroline was a godsend! I know for a fact that my wedding would not have gone so well without her help. I would highly recommend her to any bride looking to get some professional help to make her wedding day perfect!

It was the most beautiful wedding that I have attended. Everything was perfect. Caroline did a great job on all aspects of planning, from the pre-preparation of researching bands, cakes, halls, catering, to the day of the wedding to make sure deliveries were coordinated to transportation to pictures. She did a fabulous job! You will not be sorry if you hire her for your wedding or events planning. She gives much more and her fee is reasonable.Sent on 06/07/2012

My experience with Caroline was overall great!
Caroline was great!! Throughout the wedding planning she answered all of my questions. She made sure she helped me out if I seemed stressed or unsure about something. I'm very indecisive and Caroline made sure to help me out when I could not make a decision. She is very thorough, organized, and detail oriented which is what you need when wedding planning.Sent on 10/30/2018

When my son and daughter-in-law told me they hired a wedding planner, I really thought we didn't need her and could handle things ourselves. I was so wrong!!! Caroline was absolutely wonderful and did so much to make their wedding day a day to remember!!! We unpacked decorations Friday evening and left things in disarray. When I arrived Saturday morning, Caroline was working her magic and her creative eye and attention to detail had the venue looking amazing in a short time! When the rain started, she quickly made arrangements to move the ceremony inside, only to move it back outside minutes before the start. The reception ran smoothly and efficiently with Caroline directing the vendors and making sure everything happened as planned. Caroline's calm demeanor, artistic eye, efficient planning and attention to detail helped to make Ian and Jessica's wedding the day they had dreamed of. I highly recommend her!!Sent on 12/24/2017
