Christina and Dana of Cibi Events helped create and execute my dream wedding vision to a T! My wedding day flowed seamlessly and CIBI did not miss a beat! They worked quietly behind the scenes all day and like magic everything happend as I had dreamt. From the planning, to the set up, to the actual wedding day, Christina and Dana worked so effectively and professionally and were so beyond caring and friendly to myself as the bride, my entire family, and all of my friends. I had the perfect wedding day, and it would have made all the difference if I had not had Cibi Events behind me and with me every step of the way. I will always love and respect these hardworking professionals, as the two women who delivered my dream wedding as promised and as my friends. If you hire Cibi, your dream wedding will come true! I love love love CIBI!

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

Wow, Christina Baxter and Dana Vaughn…aka Cibi Events. It isn’t often you have a bride and groom who are equal partners in wedding planning. Additionally, we had three sets of parents all with varying opinions and roles they wanted to play. Christina and Dana grabbed this challenge by the horns and worked tirelessly with us for over 1.5 years to put together our dream wedding. We aren’t the stereotypical southern couple and we weren’t looking to copy a wedding from Pinterest. Christina and Dana utilized their vast knowledge of the industry to provide us with unique ideas and options to make our special day stand out, while also taking into consideration that our wedding was at a historic art museum. They were honest with us when our ideas were terrible, and were motivated to go above and beyond the call of duty when bringing one of our ‘aha moments’ to life. The team at Cibi Events posses the skillset that are essential for a spectacular wedding. Their attention to detail, whether it was the smallest cocktail table flower arrangement or a line in the Excel budget, combined with their ability to bring our cloudy vision to life resulted in a magical evening that left all of our guests in awe. Their professionalism and experience wasn't only what makes them great. They are just an all-around amazing team of genuinely caring individuals. They knew how to comfort us when we were stressed and on the verge of tears (a.k.a crying). They knew how to brighten our day when the "ideal dream" was out of budget . They made us comfortable throughout the entire process, and never used their experience as a reason for our ideas or thoughts to not be talked through as a team. If you’re looking for partners in the planning process who will listen to your needs and help you bring your vision (and more) to life, look no further than Cibi Events.

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!
