what others are saying
To say Carolyn was a lifesaver on our wedding day would be an understatement! At any wedding there are bound to be bumps in the road, and Carolyn dealt with all of them flawlessly and with ease. She is a true pro! I don’t know what we would have done without her at our wedding.
As a bride, this was invaluable because I was able to relax and have fun getting ready with my bridesmaids without having to worry.
Carolyn is extremely prompt and thorough with her communication. She is organized and has a great attention to detail. Not to mention, she is very kind and friendly!
I highly recommend Carolyn to coordinate any wedding or event. She will work hard to make sure everything is going smoothly, and will fix any errors without you even knowing!

I spent the majority of 2021 and 2022 reading vendor reviews – trying to get a true feel for a person and their company can be tricky so I’m going to attempt to explain all the reasons why you should work with Carolyn at CM Planning Co. I was very head strong about not having a wedding coordinator. I’m a bit of a Type A personality and between my fiancé and I, we were well in control of our wedding and the details. It had dawned on me that I can’t be in two places at once; I can’t get ready in hair and makeup and simultaneously setup my own wedding – so I would indeed need help. I asked my friend if she could help setup our wedding and she obliged early in the process. Unfortunately, as things sometimes transpire, my friend was no longer available, and this left me without setup and takedown approximately 3 months prior to our wedding. So I did what anyone else would do – I turned to the Facebook support groups for brides 😊 I explained my situation to an audience I did not know but was met with so many different coordinators offering to help. I vetted out quite a few in just a matter of hours – that was until I got a private message from Carolyn. Right away, I knew something was different about Carolyn. She was very professional, explained to me what she could do for me; it felt like no task was turned down. She was reasonable with my budget and accommodated my stress exactly the way I needed her to. We met virtually a few times – every correspondence we had left me feeling content and eased any anxiety I had regarding setup and takedown, I had found a way to be in two places at once with Carolyn as my coordinator. When I arrived at the venue, it was perfect. She had done exactly what I wanted her to. She made the wedding of my dreams come to life. If you are looking for someone who is organized, diligent, kind, understanding, accommodating, eager, driven, smart, detailed – please do yourselves a favor and hire Carolyn as your coordinator; you will never regret that decision <3

I was very hesitant at first about having a day of coordinator. I didn’t know much about what they did, or how it would benefit me. However, upon speaking with Carolyn, she helped me truly understand her role and she won me over. Carolyn is the sweetest person, so kind and just a sweet soul. I enjoyed speaking with her about my wedding and she definitely made me feel so much better about things when I knew deep down I was freaking out. Carolyn was so calm when things became chaotic and our wedding ran smoothly. I was so concerned about decor, she 100% rocked it and made my dream into a reality! She is amazing and I 100% recommend her!

Carolyn was our day of wedding coordinator. She was knowledgeable, efficient, professional, and exceeded our expectations! She attended our planning session, became familiar with all we wanted done, and the schedule of the activities for the day. Carolyn helped with all the details and made excellent suggestions for a smooth set-up even when the heat and high winds provided challenges making us have to change some of our decor plans. Most importantly, Carolyn dealt with the very difficult venue manager who was making my life unpleasant as well as kept an eye on some potentially troublesome guests. I would highly recommend Carolyn for your event as she will definitely make your event better with her being a part of the day!

We had such a great experience working with Carolyn and she was exactly what we were looking for during the last month of planning our wedding. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator to make our day perfect. She was super patient with all our questions and flexible with any requests we had. She was a true lifesaver throughout the entire day and I can't thank her enough. Carolyn is so sweet, down to earth and personable and I highly recommend choosing her for your wedding! Thank you Carolyn!
