Seriously, the best ever!! As a destination bride, it can sometimes be nerve wrecking planning a wedding in a different country. But, Christina & Dana made the job so easy & effortless. They were so amazing and accommodating every step of the way. They were also amazing when it came to recommending vendors - everyone they recommended to me was the PERFECT fit! Our wedding was a HUGE success, honestly, the most amazing night ever. And it was all because of Christina & Dana, the dream team!! They went above & beyond and helped make our wedding even more perfect that I could have ever imagined. Thank you ladies, you are so amazing!! XOX

Christina & Dana made our non-traditional wedding and everything around it FUN, stress-free, and absolutely memorable! Everyone tells us how beautiful and fun the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony and the reception we're. And their vendor recommendations were top-notch at every turn. Simply cannot recommend them highly enough!

My wife and I recently had our daughter's destination wedding (we all live in NY) in Charleston. It was held at the Legare Waring House, and it was truly a magnificent event. That venue is a fairy tale setting. Naturally a destination wedding can be an arduous task, because we live so far away. Our daughter did her wedding planner research and found "Cibi Events". What a smart move that was. We worked very closely with Christina and Dana. Despite the long distance, we felt as if they were right next door. They are tireless and reliable and helped to make sure that we had all of our ducks in a row. Not to mention that they are both really nice people. And it was very comforting to have them by our side on the entire day of the wedding. With great confidence and pleasure, we would gladly recommend them to anyone looking to plan a wedding in Charleston.

There are so many positive things to say about Cibi Events that we don’t know where to begin. We were planning a destination wedding in Charleston and chose Cibi to be our wedding planner because she had a very upfront approach when it came to budgeting. She provided a detailed spreadsheet outlining realistic costs for our big day which immediately put us at ease and set us on the right track for planning. Beyond the numbers, Cibi gives off a relaxed, confident vibe which we responded well to. Throughout the past year, Cibi and her right-hand woman, Dana, have been responsive and available at the drop of a hat. The planning process was never stressful because we knew we had experienced professionals helping us with every detail. When we had an idea they promptly researched vendors and provided solutions and quotes in order for us to make an informed decision. In addition to their organizational skills, Cibi had excellent creative ideas that really took our event to the next level. They were also amazing at implementing and pulling together ideas from Pinterest which is no easy task! The actual day ran so smoothly and allowed us to be present in the moment and enjoy each other and our guests who had travelled a long way to attend our wedding. All the details we had been dreaming of came together perfectly and were so cohesive. We would highly recommend Cibi Events to anyone looking for an experienced, professional wedding planner! Thank you Cibi and Dana for making our dreams come true! Ashleigh & David

We could never repay Cibi and Dana at Cibi Events for all that they did to make my daughter's and new son-in-law's wedding everything they dreamed of and more. It was the most wonderful wedding any of us have ever been to (an opinion shared by our guests despite the fact that many of them had weddings that were 5 times the budget of ours). It was evident to us Cibi provided additions and improvements that we did not pay for (surely coming out of her own pocket) to make the event even lovelier. Cibi and Dana are truly the ultimate professionals, with a remarkable eye to detail, exceptional ability to grasp the vision of their clients, impeccable taste, continual focus on service and truly unmatched ability to create an event that far exceeds one’s expectation or imagination. And with all of that said, they are pure joy to work with, leading one to hope they might remain as friends.

Working with the ladies at Cibi Events was phenomenal. From start to finish they were accommodating, efficient, compassionate and oh SO creative. They helped my husband plan things while he was out of the country, and held my hand through many emotional decisions and meltdowns! Their availability was more than any bride could ask for and they really make you feel like you're the only one they're working with. My vision came to life in so many ways because of their expertise. We are over two months past our wedding and the compliments continue to roll in. I couldn't have been more pleased with their work. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat. The only sad part of my wedding day was realizing that I wouldn't be working with them anymore. They treat you like family and are genuinely kind, honest, and professional people to work with.

We met Christina Baxter and Dana Vaughn of CiBi events after seeing her name listed as a preferred vendor on a couple of venues we were checking out. We sent introductory emails to a couple of planners, but Christina Baxter left them all in the dust from the first contact. We got engaged on a Friday and sent out preliminary introduction emails that Sunday. Christina emailed back right away and scheduled an immediate first call. We were thinking of a rustic and romantic southern affair outside with café string lighting and a backyard bbq theme for the food – she immediately got what we were going for and understood that we were paying for this event entirely on our own so staying in budget was a big selling point for us. She and Dana set to work straight away on a budget and a plan. By the time we got replies from the other planners we emailed (days later), we had already had 2 conversations and multiple emails with CiBi Events. We were planning our wedding from Chicago, which meant that we could not go and meet dozens of photographers, DJs, bakers, etc. Christina and Dana knew our vision and our budget and would suggest vendors that they trusted that were available on our day and that were within our budget. They were always up front about the cost – if there was a vendor that was a couple hundred dollars more than what we were expecting, we knew about it right up front, which I appreciated – I hate falling in love with something and THEN finding out it’s over budget. This is what made our wedding planning extremely enjoyable and almost stress free! On the big day, everything ran seamlessly. They thought of everything, anticipated everything, and helped coordinate everything down to the last perfect detail. We had our dream wedding, and we never would have been able to pull it off with CiBi Events. I can never say “thank you” enough to Christina and Dana ~ the wedding dream team!!

We cannot say enough nice things about working with Christina and her wonderful assistant Dana! They were involved in all aspects of our wedding, making sure we reached out to each vendor at the right time, handling paperwork, and anticipating potential challenges before they became a problem. Wedding planning is stressful. It feels like there are a million things to do AT ALL TIMES. You want someone who is calm, has a ton of experience, and knows just about every vendor in town. Like many couples, we had a vision for our wedding, but we relied heavily on Christina and Dana to navigate the seemingly endless details that needed to be addressed to realize that vision. Both Christina and Dana displayed endless patience helping us realize that vision, always accommodating our last minute waffling and change of heart. When we were freaking out about a particular aspect of the wedding – or more accurately a million important decisions – they would schedule a call immediately and give us two hours of their undivided attention if we needed it! While they are undoubtedly great at their job, Christina and Dana are also exceptionally nice people. Which is important to consider because you will spend A LOT of time with your wedding planners. When it was all said and done, Christina and Dana helped us pull off an amazing wedding and really stayed true to our wishes and vision for the wedding, which was especially important to us. And while we certainly don’t miss the stress associated with wedding planning, we do miss spending time with both of them!!! Dream team!

Hiring Cibi Events to coordinate our wedding was the best decision we made! Her expertise and guidance, especially with this being an out of town wedding, was invaluable. She has great taste, great relationships with all the best vendors in Charleston, and is just super flexible, helpful, caring and AWESOME in every way!! We could tell she was the best choice for a wedding planner when she started helping us with a venue search and other planning elements before we had actually even officially signed a contract with her. She just defines "going above and beyond". Highly recommend!!

Attempting to plan a wedding, in and of itself, can be a difficult (and stressful) task. Attempting to plan a wedding on your own when you are, literally, nine-hundred miles away from the location you are having it only adds to the difficulty (and stress) of putting the day together. My (now) wife and I quickly learned this as we first attempted to plan our wedding in Charleston on our own from Connecticut. Looking back on the process, I have no doubt in my mind that, thanks to Christina and Dana, our wedding could not have been any better; even if we had it closer to where we live. Once we realized that we needed help to plan our wedding, we did some research about a couple of different wedding planners in the Charleston area. We planned on meeting with a couple of them to see exactly which one would fit with our personalities. Christina was the first wedding planner we met with; and we knew from the moment we left the meeting that we didn't need to meet with anyone else. From the earliest stages of planning, all the way up to the big day, Christina and Dana had complete control over the situation and made the process as smooth as possible. From tasks as large a picking a caterer, florist, photographer and band, to the smaller last minute on the fly issues, we never had a doubt that they were on top of things. The best example of their dedication to providing their clients with support, and delivering on that goal, came about a week before the wedding. Our wedding took place the Saturday after hurricane Matthew. Despite the chaos that the weather brought to the area, Christina and Dana were able to be reached the entire week, and checking to make sure that our wedding day would go exactly as planned. I could never thank them enough for the work they did to make our wedding such an amazing day, and would recommend them to anyone in an instant.

My husband and I live in Atlanta, but we decided to have our wedding in Charleston—that’s where we fell in love. We both have a busy work schedule and I’m not a great planner, so we knew the importance of having a wedding planner in order to make our dream of a beautiful southern wedding become a reality. We interviewed many wedding planners and after speaking with Christina at Cibi Events, we immediately knew that we wanted to work with her—she was easy going, poised, elegant, and most importantly understood our style and knew immediately how to make our vision become a reality. After working with Cibi Events, I strongly recommend Christina and her team. Throughout the planning process, Cibi Events was attentive, organized and resourceful. They alleviated any additional stress leading up to the wedding day by taking the reigns and making sure that everyone (family, guests, vendors, husband and I) was taken care of and on schedule. On my wedding day, I had absolutely no stress and knew that Cibi and her team would take care of everything and they did just that. Thanks to Cibi Events, my husband and I had the most magical and memorable wedding that we could have imagined.
