“I didn’t have to worry about a thing! Carolyn conducted the ceremony perfectly. The whole bridal party was prepared and walked down the aisle on time, including the little kids. She also made sure that I brought the marriage license to the ceremony so that everyone could sign it. Carolyn really took charge of the wedding so I was able to completely relax and enjoy the wonderful day. The day of the wedding, Carolyn and her assistant had the whole reception arranged exactly how I wanted it. All of the decorations were in the exact spots we talked about, she created a timeline to keep the flow of the reception running smoothly, and she even made sure that we always had a drink in our hand and something to eat. I highly recommend Carolyn if you are looking for a wedding coordinator, she is great!”

“Our wedding day was incredible. Carolyn made the planning process very stress free and communicated very well about everything we needed to make decisions on as well as gave her input based on her experience. Carolyn planned our absolutely phenomenal LGBT wedding and reception! It truly was flawless!!! The day of the wedding everything was in order, we did not have to worry about a thing and she went so far as to take care of both of us and make sure we were eating and not just socializing. Carolyn is worth her weight in gold and an absolute must hire!”

“I hired Carolyn with Creative Celebrations to plan a summer party at my home. She did such a fantastic job that I will be using her for all of my future event planning. She was very detail-oriented and had excellent ideas to make my party unique and special. She was professional and personable throughout the entire process. I really appreciated how available she made herself during the planning phase as well as on the party day itself. Anything I needed, she was on top of it. I highly recommend her for your event too!”
