  • Let me start by saying Cristina is truly the best. If you’re planning a wedding or will be planning a wedding in the future, YOU NEED HER. She is seriously a miracle worker. I have been mentally planning my wedding since I was probably about 19 years old (I’m 33 now so this has been going on for a while). I would read wedding planning books for fun. So when it came time to plan my wedding for real I was READY! Then covid happened. Luckily I had already chosen all my vendors, but it was about 4 months before my wedding when I started feeling overwhelmed. After a year and a half of planning, plus 1 pandemic, wedding planning fatigue had set in and I was just over it. I reached out to my officiant (who is also amazing, Ceremonies my Lauren, if you’re wondering) and she recommended Cristina as a Month of Coordinator. Like most people, I thought, “I don’t need a wedding planner/coordinator.” I cannot stress this enough, Cristina is so much more than that. Cristina is so ... Read more

  • I had an incredible experience with Cristina at Carismas. My wedding would not have been as success as it was without her especially during these COVID times. She really took alot of stress off of me and my family and we are so grateful for her services. She has an eye for detail and really put my needs first. I would highly recommend Cristina to every bride.

  • Cristina was our Coordinator for my daughter's wedding 9/26/20. I can't imagine not having her to guide us. We had a Barn wedding (actually because of COVID had it outside the barn) so we had to do everything ourselves. She was AMAZING! Handled the vendors and all documentation we needed, created a timeline for hair, makeup, and photographer so it all went perfectly smooth, calmed me down when I called her stressed about weather, offered suggestions/ideas that we never thought of. Very professional and organized and was ALWAYS very responsive when I had a question or needed advice. Excellent communication!! Didn't worry about a thing on the wedding day! So my daughter & I were able to enjoy the day. I can't say enough about our experiences with her.

  • I work in healthcare and my now Husband works in the National Guard. Needless to say, wedding planning during the pandemic while both being on the front lines was extremely stressful. The guidance from Cristina during the pandemic wedding planning was the best thing that happened to us during that stressful time. I like to tell Cristina she was my therapist and knew exactly what to say and what I needed to hear during the planning process. Talking to her felt like it was going to be okay and it was! Our wedding day was the BEST day of our lives. I will be forever grateful for her and helping us have the best wedding. She goes above and beyond, is so detail orientated and thinks of every option for literally every situation. I would hire her again and again one thousand times over!

  • I hired Cristina at Carismas Design in April 2019, knowing that I would need some help planning my August 2020 wedding. From my initial meeting with Cristina, I knew that she was the planner I needed! Her energy and responsiveness are amazing! When the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency began to impact our wedding, we had so many questions. Cristina answered all of my questions and eased my concerns immediately. She helped to plan my micro-wedding at a completely new venue, hired vendors, and created a perfect timeline - all within three weeks! Having Cristina by my side at every step of the way was everything that I could ask for. I appreciate her attention to detail, charisma, and knowledge of the industry. I would 100% recommend Carismas Design to any couple looking for full, day of, or month-of coordination.

  • ...was hire Cristina! To summarize me, I was a pretty organized bride with a 12 tabbed Google Sheets document. I kinda plan for my career, so planning a wedding was not all that bad. However, I knew the few months leading up to the wedding that things would get crazy and wasn’t sure I could do it all. Hence my search for a day of coordinator began and lead me to Cristina. She is the most organized, patient, flexible accommodating person ever. She managed coordinating between my many vendors with ease and only contacted me and my now husband when necessary. She was thoughtful and brought details and questions to my attention That I would have never, ever thought of. I highly recommend Cristina and her team to anyone planning a wedding. It will be the best thing you decide to do. Seriously!

  • You can imagine how stressed it was planning a wedding during a pandemic. My (now Husband) and I were both on the front lines during the pandemic which added even more stress to planning a wedding. Cristina was there EVERY step of the way and had every answer for my 100 questions I asked her. Her team is AMAZING!!! I would hire her again 1,000 times over.

  • I booked Cristina only a few months before my wedding because I was lost in my planning. She stepped in got my wedding on track & gave me the guidance I needed to have the unique & amazing wedding that people will be talking about for years to come. She was unable to be there the actually day of my wedding but her coordinators Victoria & Sylvia were both there. They were very attentive & made sure the day went as smoothly as possible. I am forever grateful

  • Hiring Carismas Design was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. Cristina was so attentive, supportive and organized, I absolutely enjoyed working with her and her team. I hired Carismas for day-of planning and the only thing I would've done differently is to hire her to help plan my entire wedding. Well worth the cost and such a pleasure to have around for my wedding day.

  • On 9/19/19 Cristina made our special day even more special! As the newly married couple we had nothing to worry about during the actual day but party. The day was better than we could have imagined with her help. The process before leading up to the day was seamless. Cristina was firm but understanding and also made us feel as comfortable as possible. We love Cristina and wish she did other events so we can have her for those events too. Everyone who had an interaction felt comfortable and just loved her. If you are looking for a wedding planner look no further than Cristina, she literally made our dreams come true. Hopefully she can have the same affect for you that she had for us.

  • Christina and her staff were key to my daughter’s perfect wedding day. During the planning, day of the wedding, and even afterwards, Christina and staff went above and beyond to ensure that my daughter had a perfect day with absolutely nothing to worry about. Christina and staff can handle any curve that is thrown at them and they handle everything with expertise and professionalism. We are so thankful to have had them during the planning process and cannot even imagine doing it without them. Thank you so much Christina and staff for making my daughter’s wedding at Tendenza everything she ever dreamed of!!

  • Wedding planning savior! That’s what Cristina has been. My fiancé and I live very busy non traditional lives. I am in health care and work nights. He is in the military and has been overseas for the majority of our planning. With our schedules, and very opinionated families, we were looking for someone to help lessen wedding planning stress. From the start Cristina has helped us with establishing a budget, meeting with vendors, negotiating contracts, designing save the dates, to solving unexpected issues. My fiancé and I had an unexpected life event that changed his availability for our engagement shoot. When our photographers were unavailable during his short, unexpected home visit, we were bummed. I was stressed. Cristina didn’t flinch. She used her resources and scheduled us another amazing photographer for our engagement shoot. Not only is Cristina knowledgeable, she also has a warming personality that every bride needs. In the end, you want to like the people you are worki... Read more

  • Where do I begin...Cristina is a one woman powerhouse. She is unbelievably organized and so meticulous with every detail that on the day of our wedding three days ago, my only job was to get ready for the wedding. The rest, she took care of. From the set-up of our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception details to giving the groom and his groomsmen guidance on what they should do ahead of the first look for photos to making everything come together before we walked down the aisle, everything went so seamlessly and our wedding was perfect. Cristina, thank you SO MUCH for all of your hard work. Without you there, we know we couldn't have made the wedding as easy for Peter, me, and the rest of the wedding party!!!!!!!!!!
