Where do I even begin to describe how AMAZING Cortney and her team are! I planned my wedding in SoCal, while living in Dallas, and I probably could not have done it without her help. When there are ... Read more dozens of caterers, photographers, etc. out there from which to pick, it can be really daunting to wade through the sheer number of options. Since Cortney is the SoCal wedding planning guru, she's worked with just about everyone and can just point you in a direction and say, you can't go wrong with any of these. It's a huge weight off your shoulders because you don't have to worry if they're not very good, and you definitely don't have to worry if they're reliable or not. People always say "watch out for that one major thing that will go wrong on your wedding day" but, with Cortney at the helm, I actually had nothing go wrong! Even if you don't want to buy her services for full or partial planning, it is a MUST to book her for day of. She runs a smooth ship and she makes sure everyone has a drink in their hand, knows where they need to be, and most importantly, is having fun! I had SO much fun at my wedding and didn't have to worry about a thing, because I knew that Cortney is the ultimate professional and that she had my back. Okay, I'll stop rambling, but seriously. The BEST wedding planner out there!

Nicole Cipolla aka miracle worker

I worked with Nicole who was honestly incredible. I attribute my absolutely perfect day in the large part to her amazing skill and professionalism. I used Nicole for “partial planning” and she spent ... Read more all the time I needed prior to the big day ironing out details, both through in person meetings, and responding to any emails and texts I sent her way. The day of the wedding, Nicole was in her element, and on her game! She was always running around and coordinating with my vendors, making sure everything went smoothly. And yet for how busy she was, she helped keep me stress free and happy, and served as a huge comfort. (I was reminded of the old adage about ducks - calm on the surface but padding like hell underneath!). I only found out weeks after the event what minor hiccups came up throughout the day, and that’s a huge testament to Nicole doing her job well. I could not recommend working with this team more, my experience with Nicole was amazing, and it will be very worth the investment! Thank you again, Nicole!

Highly recommend!

Cortney and Nicole were amazing! They were super helpful and sweet. I was really stressed about the weather on the week of my wedding and they helped me come up with a back up plan and made me feel ... Read more much more at ease. The day of the wedding ended up going go smoothly thanks to them. Highly recommend!
