  • 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.

  • 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!!!!!!!!!!

  • Cristina was there for me from the moment we met. While I had all the major things booked, she was instrumental in helping me keep my sanity. She was the voice of reason and someone that I felt genuinely cared about me. She offered tons of advice and was a wealth of resource. I never felt like I was working with a planner - it actually felt like I had a MOH on steroids who had tons of experience! Cristina allowed me to enjoy the weeks leading to my wedding and always knew the right thing to say. My only regret was not meeting her sooner. If you are able to snag her for your wedding, you are one lucky bride.

  • Most people believe they can plan a wedding on their own but the reality is my husband and I could not have planned our wedding without Cristina. She is so knowledgeable and has many connections in the wedding industry. We hired her shortly after getting engaged and she continues to work with us now even after our wedding day. Leading up to the wedding Cristina walked us through venue tours, price negotiations, contract readings, engagement photo shoots, invitation designs, timeline details, music selections, and more. The day of the wedding Cristina ensured that everything went smoothly despite the unexpected bumps in the road. On my end, my makeup artist did not show up and Cristina called another makeup artist who came within 20 minutes and did an amazing job on me and the bridal party. On my husbands end, he left his entire suit at home but was able to go to a shop to purchase another one. Cristina managed to keep my husbands mishap from me and mine from him, she also kept us calm ... Read more

  • Working with Carismas not only helped make the process of planning my wedding so much less stress on me, but the day of our wedding was so well managed. She took care of all the vendors, I was able to sit back and enjoy my wedding. Her plans and designs came out so beautiful— I was just really happy with everything. Her team was great as well, they helped decorate and break down afterwards. Thanks to Cristina and her team who helped make my wedding fun and relaxing!!

  • Cristina gets the job done! I knew I needed a day of coordinator when I booked Cristina 3-4 months before our wedding, but I didn't know how fundamental she would end up being. We were having a ceremony on the roof top of our apartment building in Brooklyn before a reception at a local brewery in the neighborhood. Without Cristina, we simply would not have been able to pull off having a ceremony in such an unusual location. She helped up navigate getting 75 chairs up six flights of stairs, made sure everything was ready at the ceremony venue and the reception venue, set up champagne for the guests to toast as we finished watching the sunset from the roof, and made sure we were all on schedule throughout the day. To top it off, her husband Jeremy came and helped her out so that we wouldn't have to pay an extra day of chair rentals. While the guests were arriving, Jeremy even helped two of our older relatives with mobility issues walk up the six flights of stairs. He was so kind and pati... Read more

  • Carismas was recommended to us by a friend, and we were in no way let down! We needed help planning a two day Cambodian-American wedding from out of town and would not have been able to do it without Cristina. We got everything we wanted and our wedding turned our more beautiful than we could have hoped for. Planning a NJ and PA wedding from Florida was stressful, especially considering that I work night shift. Cristina was so easy to work with and met with us several times in person and we we're in almost constant contact by email and phone-she was really great about accommodating our unique needs as clients. Her honesty and integrity throughout the process are the qualities that stood out the most to us which is why we have been recommending her as a planner to so many of our friends. It's hard to find service professionals these days who are genuinely working with your best interest in mind, especially when you're paying them to make you happy. She was extremely attentive to detail ... Read more

  • Cristina was absolutely awesome to work with. I completely trusted her to execute the plans I had for my wedding day, and she did not disappoint. She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. I highly recommend going with Carimas, Cristina and her team made my dream wedding possible.

  • My fiancé and I hired Cristina to help with wedding planning and day of coordination and we couldn't be happier! She was such a treat to work with! She was so funny and kept things light during a time where things can get to be pretty tense. She was extremely professional, always on time and was willing to work with our hectic schedules! She truly made everything so much more enjoyable, I was able to focus more on my guests while she took care of the rest. I cannot thank her enough. I felt so comfortable with her, she went above and beyond to make sure my wedding day was absolute perfection. If you are looking into getting a wedding planner don't look any further Cristina is your girl! She will make sure your day is just as you imagined it.

  • I'll just start off by saying hiring Cristina as our wedding planner was the best decision we made for our ENTIRE wedding. Period. To start off, we hired Cristina to help plan our wedding and also to be there day of as our coordinator. This was especially difficult task as my (now) husband and I are both active military so I was living in Texas, he in Georgia, and Cristina was helping us plan a wedding in NJ! She was perfection; every recommendation she made, every decision she made, every suggestion was on point, I could not be happier with everything she did. She is extremely timely in responding to us, keeping us on track with our wedding planning, keeping us within budget, and very honest in all her recommendations. My recommendation? Hire her and say yes to all her recommendations. She understood my fiance and I's personalities and made our dream wedding come true. Day of the wedding, she made sure everything went off without a hitch, all we had to do was enjoy the day (which we d... Read more

  • We booked Cristina about a year before our wedding for Month-of / Day-of coordinating, and she was the best decision we made for our day! Later on in the planning process, we hired her for our rehearsal dinner which helped our wedding party get organized (highly recommended!!). After we initially met, I had several questions throughout the planning process which she promptly answered in a professional manner. We even used the cake vendor that she recommended which turned out great! Once we were about 6 weeks out, Cristina emailed me to get the ball rolling. From there, she met with us for a venue walk-through, drew up floor plans, suggested table placement, gave us checklists, organized all of the work we had already done, spoke with everyone that we hired, and created a wonderful timeline which the rest of our vendors loved. In those 6 weeks (and even prior) she was always quick to respond to all of my crazy questions, and I always appreciated her input. Another awesome decision with ... Read more
