Thank you so much for making our wedding day absolutely perfect. It’s truly amazing that you were able to take our vision (which I could barely articulate!) and turn it into exactly what we dreamed of. Every minute and minuscule detail was thoughtfully planned, ensuring our guests (and us, too!) had a great time. We were truly able to enjoy ourselves and celebrate with our friends, and will have last memories of our beyond perfect day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

"exactly what
we dreamed of"



As I have expressed to everyone, you are the perfect wedding planner--just absolutely perfect in every way! We feel very fortunate to have found you early in the process and to have had your expert guidance for J&Z's big day! Thank you for being the voice of reason in every decision and every situation and for being there for us every single time we needed you! The best part is that J and I feel lucky that we also gained you as a friend. It may be a few years off but I look forward to the next wedding when I will be calling you again to be
the best wedding planner ever!

"absolutely perfect in every way"

I could go on for hours about my experience with CDE -- flawless from beginning to end! Caroline thought of EVERYTHING and has such an eye for design, but also keeps the guest experience in mind, which was so important for our (essentially) destination wedding for both of our out-of-town families.
 Throughout the process, Caroline made me feel like I was her only bride.
I think that speaks volumes about her and her genuine passion for what she does and her clients. Wedding day was perfection -- she was the perfect mix of energy for the day and a calming presence. I had the most stress-free wedding day because I knew Caroline had it covered! Best of all, our families were able to relax and enjoy the entire weekend because we had Caroline & her team there from rehearsal through the final guest said goodbye at brunch.
There just is not a better planner who cares so much about her clients and provides such a wonderful experience. Thank you, Caroline! 

"Our wedding was perfection..."

Caroline is a force of nature and an absolute joy to work with. She quickly and seamlessly took everything off our hands while providing us with valuable insights and suggestions throughout - expertly guiding us through the process. Before the wedding, we had no shortage of last-minute modifications and Caroline kept perfect track of everything. She helped us to source our remaining decor, led us through our entire rehearsal, put together beautiful displays on the day of the wedding (on top of coordinating every logistical detail), and even took the time to touch-up my hair and tie my bustle, all while radiating calmness and professionalism. If Caroline says she will do something, you can be 150% sure it will get done and get done beautifully.
I couldn't recommend her more highly!

"an absolute joy to work with"

Thank you so much for being our wedding planner! I knew right when we met that you got me--you made the planning process so much less stressful and made complicated logistics flow seamlessly. I can’t even begin to express how blown away I was with the design. Everything looked more incredible than I could have ever imagined and it was so cool to see our vision come to life. I seriously had the best time working with you and wouldn’t change a thing--I already miss you!

"blown away with the design"

I know how much time, energy and effort goes into all the little details and everything turned out just so, so perfect because of you and your incredible team. I truly did not stress at all on my entire wedding week because I just knew that you knew my vision and I trusted and value your judgment calls on anything and everything! You are such a blessing to me and you made my wedding dreams come true and I will always be thank you for all that you did to make our wedding dreams come true..."

Where to start! Words cannot even express how beautiful everything turned out and how happy we were with each and every perfect detail. You made our vision come to life...which and even more glorious than we could have imagined.

“Words cannot even express how beautiful everything turned out….”



I can’t put into words how much I appreciate you and all of your hard work. You created magic, and it was truly the best day of my life. Every detail was perfect - seriously. We’ve received so many compliments on the flow of the evening, the decor and how seamless everything felt and looked -- that is all you. You looked out for us and made sure we didn’t miss a moment together, you are a stellar planner and now friend. A thank you will never be enough!

“Truly the best day of my life…”



The first time I tried to write this review I started to cry because it’s truly impossible for me to put into words how amazing Caroline is! She was our most trusted advisor during the planning process, and a superhero on our wedding day. She went above and beyond for us on wedding day and throughout the process, and has a talent for organizing that I have never seen before along with impeccable taste. So many unexpected things happened on our wedding—from torrential rain to guests deciding to organize an impromptu hora—and Caroline handled it all flawlessly, completely unphased. Everything was beautiful and perfectly executed, but more important -- we were so happy and stress-free on our wedding day and we truly have Caroline to thank for that!
