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!
“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!

  • No Sunday scaries here ♡ with a few exciting new things in store for me and warmer weather in the horizon, I love productive and fulfilled Sunday’s to end the weekend and start the week off right. With two more design plans going out this week for two upcoming weddings (a Fourth of July sparkling occasion and a cape cod coastal chic celebration), inspiration has been found all over. Reflecting and reminiscing on this fall wedding at the ocean side beauty @beauportweddings with their iconic nautical touches with oyster shells filled with salt and pepper placed on the reception tables. I can’t wait to incorporate more oysters this year in a special design I have been working on with some gorgeous handwriting from @anteaamoroso for one epic and chic personalized 30’ ft head table! ⠀ Planning: @cweventsanddesign Venue: @beauportweddings Florals: @lumiere_lauren
  • Happy Spring ♡ These warmer days this week have been the perfect indication of the first few days of spring (even with this dark rainy day that we are having today). Warmer days and longer light makes everything better after the winter blues. And wedding season is officially that much closer!⠀ ⠀ Our editorial shoot at @misselwoodevnts is the perfect combination of spring pastels and french inspired details. With details so rich yet soft, we wanted to capture the beauty of the seaside venue along with the decadent details, gorgeous gowns from @flairboston, and lush florals from @wilddahlia_. With jewels from @brown_goldsmiths, custom design paper goods from @callidoradesign, and three stunning pairs of designer shoes (@jimmychoo and @manoloblahnikhq) - because one pair just wasn't enough!⠀ ⠀ Swipe right to see some of the gorgeous film photography by my very talented friend @catherinethrelkeldphotography!⠀ ⠀ Vendor Team:⠀ Photographer: @catherinethrelkeldphotography ⠀ Venue: @misselwoodevnts⠀⠀ Planning and Design: @cweventsanddesign ⠀ Floral Design: @wilddahlia_ ⠀⠀ Hair and Makeup: @lovenotesbyjune⠀⠀ Invitations and Paper Goods: @callidoradesign⠀⠀ Bridal: @flairboston ⠀ Dress 1: @jennyyoonyc from @flairboston with @missallaneousbridal veil ⠀ Rentals: @peakeventservices⠀⠀ Cake: @flourishbakeshoppe⠀⠀ Jewelry: @brown_goldsmiths⠀⠀ Models: @maggieagency @alex_w_benson @maguaaa67
  • Introducing the new, CW Events & Design logo ♡ Over the past couple of weeks I have been working behind the scenes on a little brand refresh before this years upcoming wedding season! I cannot thank @haleytysondesign for designing my new logo so perfectly as I imagined. I decided I wanted to incorporate a few different logos, to utilize throughout my brand, while having a crest as my primary logo. Colors of dusty pinks, blush tones, and of course, my favorite color grey, are now the colors that make up the look of the CW Brand. With a passion and love of florals (roses of course!) and greenery, romance and touches of ribbon, I knew I wanted to incorporate these elements into my new vision. So much more magic is to come to CW Events & Design and I can’t wait share it all! Until then, xo CW
  • A new look is coming to CW Events & Design ♡ And this photo is just a sneak peak of all of the gorgeousness coming your way. Romance and roses are just a few of the pretty details I have used as my foundation of inspiration for my new brand along with the passion I have for creating everlasting and memorable weddings for my CW Couples. Tomorrow, I will be launching my new custom logo created by one of my favorite calligraphers @haleytyson!
