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!”

  • When in doubt, just add a little greenery 🌿 or a lot! Inspiration is starting to be pulled together for the start of 2020 CW Wedding design plans and oh boy, this is going to be a good year. I spend approximately two to three months on my couples design plans while working alongside their team of vendors to design and detail a wedding that perfectly depicts my couples style, personality, and overall esthetique for their dream wedding day. ⠀ ⠀ Photography: @meredithjanephoto Planning and Design: @cweventsanddesign Florist: @wilddahlia_ Decor and Signage: @anteaamoroso Venue: @willowbendweddings

  • A show stopping escort board accompanied by gorgeous blooms ♡ My favorite part of my design plans for my couples is designing and creating a custom, unique, and memorable escort board for their guests to find their seat. This custom creation with @haleytysondesign was a true labor of love, hand painting this eight foot tall piece of wood and hand writing all 142 guests’ names. If you liked this chic cape cod design, just wait till you see what we have in store for the end of the month! (Hint: lots of macrame, hand written fabric and pampas grass) ⠀ Planning and Design: @cweventsanddesign Escort Board: @haleytysondesign Florist: @lumiere_lauren Venue: Wychmere Beach Club: @longwoodvenues
