Caitlyn was the best money spent during our wedding. She is a professional, is extremely hardworking, and has an excellent personality. I cannot recommend her enough. You will be sorry if you do not hire her as she gives you peace of mind on a day that can be very stressful!

“She was the perfect mix of helpful, efficient, easygoing, and fun – and that proved to be true throughout our entire wedding planning process. Every time I changed my mind on details like napkin colors and menu items, I could email or text Caitlyn, and the change was made, no problem. She was also fantastic at connecting with our other vendors, handling all of the day’s logistics herself. Caitlyn had several other weddings happening in the weeks before and after ours, including one the evening before, but we never once felt as if we weren’t her number one priority."


Caitlyn was so instrumental in making my wedding day everything I dreamed it would be. From her creative eye to her attention to detail, she made everything so much easier for me - when every other part of wedding planning seemed so stressful. She was so responsive and easy to communicate with, I couldn’t have asked for a better person to help me with this process. I don’t know what I would have done without her!
“…It was Caitlyn’s personality and presentation that really sealed the deal. At no point during the preparation and lead up to our big day did Caitlyn ever treat us as though we were her customers. Her communication throughout the entire process was constant and clear and her decision-making was precise. You could tell from the start that Caitlin took a personal interest in us and made sure that she did everything in her power to make our day go off without a hitch. During our big day she made sure that the vendors were where they needed to be at all times and kept us all on schedule. She did not leave until the very end making sure we were comfortable with everything before her exit. I truly feel as though we’ve gained a friend throughout this whole experience I just want to thank Caitlyn for her hard work and effort in personally making sure that our day was as perfect as it was!”

  • Guys, I am freaking out! I am about to be super open and vulnerable with you all. I just received my first publication in one of the most prestigious and sought after wedding magazine & blog. FIRST 👏🏼ONE 👏🏼 EVER 👏🏼 I have been trying to get my work published since I opened my business and let me tell you, it’s fricken hard. You are competing with a cohesive and esthetically pleasing group of photos of gorgeous content and awe inspiring wedding details. I have always admired my colleagues for their published work and I always thought “why can’t I get published?” - with thousands of submittions a year from wedding planners and photographers, I can’t believe I am finally able to add this to my business. This was one of my 2019 goals and I am so happy to accomplish this and to keep working towards another publication. A special thank you to my dear friend @catherinethrelkeldphotography for always believing in me and for your stunning fine art photography ♡ Stay tuned for this stunning editorial to be featured in June, xo CW⠀ Photography: @carolinewinnphotography ⠀ Make-up: @glamourcosmeticsofficial ⠀ Hair: @jeveuxhairparlour
