“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."


“…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!”


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!

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!


  • Design Reveal Day ♡ Today is the day for the reveal of a very special wedding invitation suite designed by the very talented @callidoradesign!

  • New year, New me | Hello friends! I took a little social media hiatus over the Holidays to clear my head and be in the moment with my family and friends. I’ll be honest, after the New Year, I just couldn’t figure out what I wanted to post on here. It’s the daily struggle of having the “perfect” Instagram feed of cohesive colors and engaging content. Anyone else get like this?! We all have amazing things to offer to this industry and to our couples. And I am more ready than ever for 2019 and all of the pretty little details to come! Here’s to a year where I will focus on my business and provide the best possible service to my CW Couples; Where we won’t compare ourselves based on the number of followers or likes on Instagram; Where I’ll remember to show myself a little more self care to provide a clearer mindset and more energy during busy season. Here’s to right now and being present in every single moment! What are your 2019 goals? ✨ Photography: @jillmacphotography Planning: @cweventsanddesign DJ: @mikepardi @firstclassweddings Hotel: @beauport_hotel Venue: @cruiseportgloucesterweddings
  • Friday Feels ♡ With all of the hustle and bustle on your wedding day, I always encourage my CW Couples to find time to be alone and enjoy the moment with their new spouse. There are not many moments where you can be alone, by yourselves, celebrating the day that you’ve spent months planning and your new solidified love. This sweet moment at the historical Fort Sewall in Marblehead was snapped right after bridal portraits // Here’s to more intimate moments of love and laughter in 2019 ⠀ Photo: @jeningphoto ⠀ Planning: @cweventsanddesign Venue: @hawthornehotel
