Candy + Co were a dream to work with. Having been to a friend's wedding that Candy planned and seen some of the company's other work online, I was drawn to their work because of the beauty and attention to detail, but also because no wedding is the same. Candy and her team work with every couple to figure out what is going to work for them - price point, mood, aesthetic - everything! There is clearly no cookie-cutter approach here. Our wedding turned out even more "us" than I possibly could have imagined. Alana was our primary planner with Candy as our backup, and they were always there to answer our questions and handle our anxieties. They kept us on schedule and helped us to evaluate our options in a sensible and thoughtful way. On the day of the wedding itself, everything went off beautifully and we (my husband and I, but also our family, wedding party, and friends) didn't have to worry about any of the logistics at all - everything just happened. It was amazing. I would recommend Candy + Co to anyone who doesn't want to go it alone. They provide a variety of service levels, from the full planning package (which we took advantage of) to day-of planning (which I've heard from credible sources is really much more than just "day-of").

We worked with Candy and Kaitlin for our wedding and reception. Candy handled the "day-of" coordination from about 2+ months before our wedding. She supported us through some tough discussions with our reception venue and made sure everything was very organized and went smoothly on our special day. Kaitlin was at the venue making sure everything was set up (or re-set up as the case was) correctly. We were so happy we hired Candy+Co. and would make the same decision again. We recommend Candy and her team to anyone--the sooner the better!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Loreal @ Candy+Co! My fiancé (now husband) and I started late in our wedding planning process, actually very late!! When we realized we needed help to make our 150+ person wedding work, we had only 8 WEEKS until our big day!!! It is an incredible understatement to say I was unprepared and I really needed help!! I contacted Loreal at Candy+Co!!! and she was ON IT and was AMAZING!!! The greatest “wedding gift” Candy+Co could give us was the smoothest coordination of events and feeling of perfect harmony behind the scenes so I NEVER had to worry about the tiny details! That is exactly what we wanted! Loreal made this HAPPEN!! The wedding was whatever we could dream up or ever wanted and Loreal w/ Candy+Co could make that happen, but I didn’t have to do it alone!! (Sparklers at dusk?! Honestly not easy!! But she did it!!) I had my Candy+Co “Team Wedding” at every turn for recommendations, advice, coordination, tips and, when I wanted, she would immediately put together a list of vendors for me to choose from for whatever I was looking for!! That was the BIGGEST HELP! I didn't have to worry! Loreal contacted vendors if I wanted and arrange for food tasting (this would happen in a matter of hours or 1 day when I requested!! Amazing!!!). Loreal w/ Candy+Co. coordinated perfectly with everyone to ensure that they were part of “Team Wedding.” My Photographer, Priest, friends, and more were so impressed by the way they worked that many have requested information on working with them again in the future. Candy+Co honestly SAVED OUR DAY from being a completely frustrating experience and made it a simple joy!! By far, Candy+Co is the very best company I have EVER worked with for any event planning, personal planning, or event organization. Give yourself the peace, comfort, and just enjoy your wedding!!! HIRE Candy+Co!! It was the second best decision we made our wedding day (Getting married was the 1st!)

Words cannot express my gratitude for Candy and her team at Candy+Co. My wedding was a dream come true and I owe so much of that to Candy. She helped to create the perfect wedding for me and my husband. Every idea and vision I had, Candy and her team brought it to life and made it that much better. For the past 7 years, I have been planning events for up to 35,000 people, I know what it takes to put on a successful event... so I thought I could manage my own wedding and do it all myself. But planning an event for a client and planning your perfect dream wedding are two entirely different beasts. The stress of doing it myself won and I'm glad it did because I met Candy and she immediately put my mind at ease. There is no doubt in my mind that if you hire Candy, she will go above and beyond for you and make the investment entirely worth it. Candy is incredibly professional and a friend at the same time. I don't like the show Scandal but I will make the reference because Candy is like a gladiator, she just handles it, no matter what. I am incredibly lucky to have had her help. Candy responded to every question, email and call within hours, no matter the day or time. She's incredibly well organized. I am a very detail-oriented person and I met my match with Candy. She had every minute of the day planned so I didn't have to worry about a thing. I could share countless examples of how Candy went above and beyond to make my wedding the best day of my life but instead I will just leave you with this... if you think you don't need a wedding planner, think again because I can guarantee you that Candy will be the best investment you make. My husband and I got engaged in June of 2016, we met Candy in February of 2017 and we got married in October of 2017... if I could do it all over again, the only thing I would do differently is hire Candy once I got engaged.

We wish you both a lifetime of happiness, adventure, and Veuve Clicquot!!!

We had a great experience with Alana from Candy + Co. There was an issue during my wedding (with the caterer) and I didn't find out about it until the reception when my husband asked me about it. I didn't have to worry about anything and it was more than awesome to send all vendor emails and questions straight to her when I was stressing out close to my wedding day. <3

We interviewed four planners and Candy stood out by far and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Candy is one of the most organized, detailed, caring and dedicated planning professionals I've ever met, and I say this from the perspective of being an OCD planner myself! Her talents in coordinating and communicating are outstanding and we highly recommend her. Her online planning tools made budgeting, tracking and collaborating countless details much easier than starting from scratch. There simply is no detail that Candy overlooks and she will guide, opine, ask, nudge, cajole and lovingly insist (when needed) to keep you and the other service providers on schedule and in the loop so everyone is working as a team in preparation for and during the big day. Although we had been working with Candy for months, it was especially satisfying to see her in action on our wedding day. She is prepared for EVERYTHING including the inevitable surprises (torn pants hem, 89 year old aunt who needed a ride, sick sister-in-law right out of the hospital who needed extra personal attention). Working with Candy meant we were able to enjoy our wedding day without worry. We'll be forever grateful to her for always treating us not like clients but with love. Sounds sappy but it's true--she loves her work and it shows in everything she does. Andrew & Jimmy

We were so, so fortunate to have Candy for our wedding planner. She is amazing, amazing, amazing. Our daughter's wedding was basically a "destination wedding" in that I live across the country and our daughter is in graduate school in a city that is 3 hours away. Candy was incredible in helping narrow down vendors that she knows does great quality work and would fit into our budget, is incredibly responsive immediately to e-mails, and has a very special way about her that left my daughter feeling cared for and happy after each and every interaction. Somehow, on the day of, she manages to be everywhere and helpful to everyone. Even my niece who was there with two small children was amazed how she was helpful and aware of HER needs, brought tea with honey for my daughter who was losing her voice, and in so many other ways. I cannot express how grateful we are to Candy for helping us make this whole experience as wonderful as we ever could have hoped for or imagined.

Thank you so much Debbie! It really was so wonderful to work with both you and your daughter in planning her wedding. I hope we can work together again in the future on another personal event!

I truly cannot say enough positive things about my experience working with Candy. Of all of the decisions we made related to the wedding (and the wedding was incredible and truly the best day of my life), choosing to work with Candy was absolutely the best choice of all. My mom and I must have said "thank god for Candy" dozens of times. She's incredibly attentive to detail, reliable, responsive, flexible, and fun. To demonstrate her attentiveness to detail - I had lost my voice the morning of my wedding and texted Candy. She brought tea and honey to the wedding, and she even made sure someone stirred my tea when the honey had likely settled to the bottom. THAT is the level of detail you get with Candy! Regarding her responsiveness, she responds to e-mails nearly immediately, and never longer than half of a day. She is also very calming. Several times I called her stressed about a wedding-related issue and I always got off the phone in a good mood. Candy did an excellent job of putting in her two cents when asked for it (backed up by tons of experience and knowledge), but always focusing on helping me figure out what would make me the happiest. I truly feel that hiring Candy made my year and a half of wedding planning more relaxed and fun, and the final day turned out better than my husband and I had imagined. I am someone who tends to have high standards for being responsive and reliable, and I HIGHLY recommend Candy without any reservations.

Thank you so much for being so amazingly responsive, for listening to my advice, and for being open and honest so that I could address anything that needed a resolution. Most importantly, THANK YOU for trusting me!!! Your wedding was awesome, but you and I both know, your best days with D are ahead of you! I can't wait follow along as you greet your next new adventure into forever. All of my love and best wishes!!

Candy was the best!!! We weren't even really serious about hiring a planner, but we called her anyway just to see what we'd think, as she came highly recommended -- she won us over in the call and repeatedly ever since. Candy was tremendously skilled, obsessively detail oriented, and perfect in her planning for our wedding. She made sure everything was done and took a lot of the stress out of the process for my (new) wife. We'd absolutely recommend her for ANY wedding.

D! Thank you so much for the ringing endorsement! I loved being part of your wedding and working with you and J through the planning process! I wish you all of the best in this next great adventure together!

We loved them. We got a wedding that we loved, our guests loved, and they made sure we enjoyed it to. The whole process was streamlined and low stress due to their management and insights. In more detail: Awesome people: They are some of the nicest people to work with. We always felt respected, received quick replies, and generally felt very comfortable working with them. They were always on our side. They work with your vision: They are extremely flexible in adapting to our needs, from meeting our budget, to the tone and character of the wedding. They never pushed their own vision, they worked with us to make sure we were happy. That doesnt mean they did not provide any advice or recommendations, but they were all in line with our vision. They recommend awesome vendors: All the people they proposed we use (flowerist, photographer, etc) we all really liked. We felt comfortable with them and they delivered way beyond our expectations. Always provided sound advice: Ultimately, many decisions were up to us, but we often had to weigh multiple pros and cons. They were always able to provide a good sounding board for helping us decide which decision to do. They handle all the minor details and setbacks during the last stretch. They made sure they had plan B, C, D etc for any setbacks that could occur and basically took over all the details in the last month. They basically guided us throughout the chaos of paying, finalizing contracts, timelines, etc without any hiccup. They make sure the Bride and Groom were FED. With all the chaos that happens after the wedding, they make sure that the Bride and Groom have some time alone together to breath, collect their thoughts about what just happened, and be able to actually enjoy the union that just occurred. They are on point during the chaos of the celebration: guiding the guests, and VIPs to food, dancing, cake eating, etc. Never were we or our guests unsure of what was happening next and where to go.

C - This is so awesome! Thank you so much for the great review and insight into our planning management! We loved working with you and your lovely bride! We can't wait to hear what next great adventure you explore next! If you're ever back in the DC area, please don't hesitate to reach out for a coffee/catch up!

Candy & Co took all of our random little thoughts about how we wanted our wedding to look and feel and found all the perfect vendors to make it a reality. They are incredibly responsive, such a good value and kept our wedding the fun, traditional-ish but bright and happy celebration they wanted. When I woke up the next morning with no idea about where my various pairs of shoes or cake topper were, I was not at all worried because I knew Bayleigh was on top of it and had everything ready to go for my family at the end of the night. We couldn't have asked for better planners, especially planning from Colorado and California, go talk to them now, they are awesome!
Candy+Co. Events, LLC responded with the following comments:
We were so thrilled to work with you and Carlos! You had wonderful ideas, incorporated everything you loved and made sure family felt all the thanks for being a part of your wonderful wedding! It was truly a pleasure and Bayleigh, I and the whole team wish you and Carlos a very happy forever!
