Carrie was exactly what we needed! We did DIY for mostly everything leading up the the big day but she helped execute everything! We could have not had the perfect wedding without her! She is exactly what ever bride needs.

Carrie was absolutely wonderful. We hired her for the Orchid Bud Package which included two meetings the month of the wedding and day of coordination. She is worth every penny. She thought of everything the day of our wedding and took care of things before I had to ask. She is excellent. Very professional, but down to earth which is exactly who we wanted for our wedding day! Thank you Carrie so much for making our day so perfect!

Carrie did an incredible job meeting with us before hand to guide the best use of our planning time, and an even better job the day of managing our families and keeping trouble away from our happy day. I would recommend her to any and everyone!

If the money is in their budget, I would encourage every couple to contact this vendor! I was able to be so calm and enjoy my wedding knowing that she had everything under control. She provided everything we discussed and more, and was fun to work with.

Carrie was a superstar. She held down everything that day. I did not have to worry about anything, she just juggled all of the vendors, guests, and my crazy bridal party like a champ. I am so glad that we decided to book her, next to my new husband, she was the best best decision I made about my wedding. Thank you so much Carrie for all of your time, effort, and patience.

Carrie is an amazing planner. Super organized and so much help! She made my day perfect in every way. Before the wedding day she was always willing to email and meet up to talk over planning. She hit my vision on the head and I would recommend her to anyone who is getting married. Her work is excellent.

Carrie was such an amazing wedding planner, we would not have been able to plan our wedding with out her. My husband and I live in California, so we were planning our wedding from across the country. Carrie helped with us every step of the way and made it so much easier to narrow all our vendors down. The weekend of our wedding we had some hiccups but Carrie made sure everything went smoothly and made sure I didn't get stressed about anything. Our wedding went so perfectly and we have Carrie to thank for helping us on our big day!

Carrie was absolutely phenomenal! She was incredibly organized and always answered emails within minutes anytime I sent an email. I would recommend a wedding planner, because I didn't have to worry about any details or confirming with any vendors and could just enjoy myself. She set up everything, communicated with everyone so I could just relax the days before, and settled nerves and family dynamics the day of. It was so reassuring knowing I was in such great hands. All my friends have loved her so much that she has done multiple of my friends weddings as well

Carrie was fantastic. She kept us on schedule with regular check-ins and checklists, and on the big day was there whenever we needed something. Throughout the evening she kept kept things running smoothly, from the moment she checked in with us at our hotel until the last vendor was paid at the end of the night. Her services were invaluable, and we couldn't imagine our wedding day without her by our side, making sure that every last detail was taken care of. We highly recommend Orchid Weddings and Events. Carrie is the best!

The best advice we received when we were planning our wedding was to hire a day of coordinator! At the time, my fiancee and I were planning our wedding in Lake Forest, Illinois all the way from NYC where we reside. After 14 months of meticulous planning, we needed someone to ensure all those little details are executed. We used the 'Orchid Bud' package. Carrie did an amazing job taking care of and executing logistical details on our wedding day. From creating individual timelines for the entire wedding party to keep everyone on track, making last minute changes on seating arrangements, directing ceremony musicians where to set up, distributing gratuities to vendors, to coordinating with our venue manager, Carrie was there to take care of it. There are honestly so many other things behind the scenes happening that you as a bride or groom will not want to worry about on your wedding day. We had guests coming up to us at the end of the night saying they've never been to a wedding so perfectly organized! Everything flowed so smoothly from the walk down the aisle to the last dance of the evening. Carrie, we thank you for making our day truly special and absolutely stress-free!
