  • Words cannot begin to describe how wonderful it was working with Carina. An expert in every way when it comes to planning and executing your wedding. I had the privilege to work with Carina for 13 months. Not only did she make me fell comfortable, at ease and have peace about the decisions I was making she also gave her advice when I needed it. She came to my appointments, thought outside the box to make my vision happen and dealt with all logistics. This piece was huge since my venue was a clean slate. Carina did a phenomenal job on the flow of the day, the design was incredible and my flowers were stunning. She thought through everything and was even prepared when we had an unexpected thunder storm. She was calm, level headed and my guests had the very best time! My flowers were such a statement. She worked with a killer team and every piece was beautiful. A few things that just made my wedding year even more perfect is the attention to detail Carina has with everything. Also... Read more

  • Carina is a multi-talented wedding designer and planner with beautiful taste. She is skilled in all things wedding-related, including floral design and calligraphy. She curates special and vintage items for her brides and will graciously lend decor from her personal collection. Carina was also my florist and I received countless compliments on my wedding flowers. They were abundant and gorgeous. Her signature floral aesthetic is loose, effortless, and romantic. Carina was very professional and patient. I received a lot of personal attention and she always made time for my questions. Her organization skills are impeccable, and the day went off without a hitch. She was also very respectful of my wedding budget and knew how to maximize it. I am confident Carina can bring any wedding vision to life. But if you love all things vintage, classic, and fine-art, Carina is the wedding planner for you.

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about Carina. She was efficient, organized, helpful, kind, detail-oriented, has impeccable taste. No detail was overlooked on the day of our wedding, and she went above, and beyond her call of duty. We primarily used her for the day of, but she offers the full service deal if you are looking for a wedding planner, stylist, florist, etc. Carina handled the details on the day of the wedding and helped keep everything on track. I loved how honest she was when I asked for her opinion, which I felt was important to have. Carina truly cares about her brides and makes you feel like you are planning your wedding with your best friend. My family even loved working with her, and we all agreed she definitely found her calling. Carina's service is worth every single penny!

  • Hiring Carina was absolutely the best choice we made while planning our wedding. There are so many things to keep in mind during the whole process. She saw our vision and completely brought it to life! Every detail was planned out and we couldn't be happier with the end result! She gave us honest opinions through the entire process and as a beacon of light when things got stressful. She kept us on track and created the most beautiful look for our big day! I would recommend her all day long as a coordinator for your wedding. You will not regret it!! Thank you for everything Carina! Our day would not have been the same without you!

  • This review is long overdue. My wedding was in August of 2017 and it was absolutely AMAZING, perfect and magical. Everything that Carina did was right on point. Her style is classic, elegant and she is amazing. She is very professional and had a calm about her that helped me very much! There were times when I was very stressed and little did I know that she had everything taken care of. I was a bit indecisive with some things but I was able to show her pictures and we bounced ideas back and forth. Advice for future brides, of course you want everything to be perfect, but try to keep an open mind, a lot of things are not in yours or your wedding planners control, things will happen, just let it go and don’t let it ruin your day. The last thing you want to remember is any bad or negative feelings about your day. I know Carina was very busy that day but she always checked in with me or my family to see how we were doing and if we needed anything. My family loved her and I am so gratefu... Read more

  • Carina was professional and responded in a timely manner. She also arranged for meetings when appropriate. However, she forgot about major topics we talked about, and I feel like she did not listen to what I wanted; for example, I talked to her about having flower crowns for myself and the bridesmaids and I emailed her a picture of what I wanted. When it was a month away from the wedding she said I never mentioned to her about the flower crowns. I have emails as evidence and refereed her back to the email. She did not consider what I wanted. For example, I showed her a picture of what exactly I wanted for my back drop, but on the wedding day the back drop looked like a giant curtain. Also I clearly communicated to her that my family will set up the chair covers and sash. When my family arrived to set up, her assitants were tieing the chair sash into knots; which is not what I wanted. When my family told her I wanted bows, she told them "no" and that knots would look more unified. Carin... Read more

    Kathy, I'm very sorry for your disappointment in service and outcome for your wedding. Many of these items were discussed at length in our meetings, including floral design, decor, and resources. I wish that you would have expressed your concerns at this time so that we could have resolved them before the wedding. In regards to the chairs and sashes, this is a misunderstanding. Neither myself nor my team would ever direct people specifically away from a client’s wishes. My deepest apologies for your dissatisfaction. Carina www.carinavanson.com
