I had just met Carly the beginning of summer of 2015. She heard me talking about my wedding planning and immediately offered her services! Carly would contact me to see where I was with planning, ask me what I needed and offered to pick up anything I couldn't. She worked around my schedule when she came to visit and the day of my wedding was the least stressful for me as a bride because of her. Carly was my go to person for all the family who helped make food, she went to the venue early to get things set up and whenever I had an issue she would just take care of it. Carly was absolutely amazing and I couldn't imagine our wedding being any more perfect than it was and she was a HUGE part of stress-free, fun filled night!!!! I would recommend her to anyone!!!

Carly was born a party planner in my opinion! Five years before she started event planning school, she was my party planner for my child's first and second birthday but most of all mostly planned my wedding (and she was also the maid of honor). She is very organized, stays on top of deadlines, and has the most unique and fun ideas for food and games. I felt calm and relaxed knowing that I had her help and opinions. At my child's birthday parties, I could focus on my child and family while Carly dealt with food, organizing everything, and making sure everything was running smoothly. Carly is my go to person whenever I need help planning or organizing anything because she is really passionate about it and it shows!

I have had the pleasure of attending two birthday parties for children planned by Carly. The decorations were color coordinated with the theme of each party. At one "underwater" theme party there was a delicious punch which captured the lovely ocean blue color. The original touches were everywhere. I especially liked the invitations and thank you note designs. I would recommend this event planner and I will definitely hire her for any future events I would plan.
