“…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 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."


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!

  • Introducing, The Hassons ✨ Thursday’s design plan execution wedding was one for the books! Abby and Jake’s wedding at @granitelinks overlooked the Boston skyline on one of the best days of the year.⠀ After seeing Abby’s gorgeous and detailed @moniquelhuillier dress at the beginning of our planning, I knew exactly the overall feel and look that we were going to create for their celebration. Jake added his own personalization with American flag socks to fit with their favorite day of the year, Fourth of July; the day they got engaged a year ago and now married. ⠀ ⠀ Their design plan was one of my favorites that I couldn’t wait to bring to life! A garden inspired wedding made up of a neutral color palette of white (obviously), pale blues, and dusty pinks. Molly of @fleurevent is the queen of flowers making all my dreams come true with the three different centerpiece designs including tall statement arrangements, low organic compotes, and the perfectly hand picked pale blue taper and pillar candles; a romantic and lush chuppah, two asymmetric statement pieces that we’re out of this world, pieces of eucalyptus on the head table at each seating, and a twenty-five foot garland installation for the bar! Like I said, she is the queen 🙌🏼⠀ ⠀ Check out my stories for a behind the scene of all the magic!
