  • Cathy is literally the best. It's amazing how she made the process of planning our wedding stress free especially given how overwhelming I expected it to be. I even found myself looking forward to our planning calls! Cathy helped us execute our vision to a tee and the vendors she recommended were on point and worked so well together under Cathy's guidance. She is flexible and accommodating, and really wants the couples she works with to have the time of their lives. The wedding went off without ANY complications (of course, like I said, Cathy is the best) and many of our guests commented on it being one of the most fun weddings they've ever been to. Use Cathy to plan your wedding, seriously, you'll be so happy you did. By the end of this process I really feel like we've become friends with Cathy - I was even told she cried as we walked down the aisle :) "Your wedding planner [Cathy] was amazing, I don't know how she does it! It's like she was in 15 places at once." - My ... Read more

  • Pretty sure nothing I could say could truly encapsulate how Instrumental Cathy and her team were to planning our wedding! By the end of it all, she was way more than just a planner, she was our friend! The way she structured planning made it feel like a lot got done at exactly the right times, so we were never really overwhelmed. We had phone calls with her every two weeks to go over what we needed to do before our next call and she really kept us on track. Even to the point where she would make me calendar events to pay vendors on time. When she told me we were having our LAST call 6 weeks before the wedding, I actually got a bit sad because they had really become a part of our process. Above and beyond is really the best phrase to describe Cathy. At one point during the actual wedding, a few of my bustles were coming undone and one string ripped off (too much dancing) and Cathy had the awesome idea to Zip tie them AND she made the ziptie invisible! The next day, I was walking... Read more

  • I couldn’t have done it without cathy! Or it would have been extremely hard... and she makes it SO easy. She was so responsive and understanding, even when i wanted to change the seating arrangements about 5 times. She explained why things should or shouldn’t be a certain way and provided her expertise for EVERYTHING. she’s extremely experienced, professional and personable. It was always a wonderful call with cathy to go through all details. She ensured her coordinators were passed the right information and always treated us like her only client.

  • Whenever my husband and and I talk about our wedding we always say "thank goodness for Cathy"! If it wasn't her and her team the day would not have run so smooth. We originally didn't plan on hiring a planner for day-of-services but I'm so happy we did. It was the best money we spent and would recommend everyone to hire a planner. Better yet. hire Cathy! From the start she was organized, experienced, knowledgeable, and a problem solver. She had never worked at the venue we booked but that was not a problem, she jumped right in. We worked together on schedules, check lists, and contact lists. Because of her experience she had so many life saving tips that I would have never thought of. I was able to be involved during the entire process which helped ease the stress of planning. Si I could literally go on forever about all the wonderful experiences I had with Cathy. When someone loves what they do the way Cathy does everything becomes effortless with the most amazing outcome. And my we... Read more

  • Working with Cathy was amazing! Cathy helped us every step of the way and really helped to relieve a lot of stress throughout the whole process. Cathy was incredibly organized and made sure we thought through every detail and provided input when we needed help making a decision. On the day of our wedding Cathy made sure everyone and everything was in the right place at the right time. When another vendor made a few mistakes, Cathy made sure we got a full refund from them and that we did not have to worry about it at all on the day of our wedding. The day after our wedding my wife and I joked that the worst part of the wedding being over was that we wouldn't get to work with Cathy anymore. We can't recommend her services enough!

  • One of the reasons we chose our venue was because it came with Cathy’s day of coordinating services. Turned out to be a phenomenal decision. Cathy knows every detail of a wedding inside and out. I was never nervous that something would slip through the cracks because I knew Cathy would catch it. Similarly, Cathy was patient with and appreciative of my attention to detail and worked with me to make sure I had the wedding of my dreams. When our DJ did not meet our expectations the day of (played the wrong song for the processional, called me by the wrong name) Cathy followed up and was able to get our money back by the time we woke up the next day. She is a calm, professional and knowledgeable advocate and I cannot recommend her services highly enough.

  • We used Cathy from start to finish, from the moment we first had a tour of our would be venue to the day of the wedding. We had a really clear vision of what we wanted our wedding day to be like, and she perfectly executed it down to every last detail. We wanted a very relaxed, but detailed bohemian aesthetic. She understood our vision immediately, even though I'm sure every wedding and couple that she works with is entirely different. We went into the entire process thinking that if we had the design aspects down and knew the big vendor choices, we had the hard stuff done with. But there are so many logistical aspects to wedding planning that few couples ever understand the true scope of beforehand, and Cathy made our lives ten thousand times easier by taking on the majority of them herself and/or seamlessly guiding us through them. When it comes to the actual day of the wedding, there is no one better. She coordinated everything with all the vendors, from caterers to musicians to shu... Read more

  • But seriously. Cathy is an incredible wedding planner, phenomenal professional, creative genius, and steady hand in a storm. Cathy planned my best friend's wedding where I was a Maid of Honor. It felt like every time I called my friend and asked, how could I help?, she would forward a simple decision that had to be made with clear options laid out by Cathy. It made the wedding more about the excitement of sharing a day together rather than the harried rush of planning of wedding near New York City. On the day of, Cathy made sure everyone knew exactly what needed to be happening. I felt like I was only made aware of really really really important things, and everything behind the scenes went very smoothly. My friends were concerned about spending the money for Cathy, but by the end of the wedding, they said they were the best spent pennies in the entire wedding budget. I can't recommend her highly enough.

  • Cathy is the best. THE BEST. It's hard to imagine capturing in words how great Cathy is at what she does, what a joy it is to work with her, and how wonderful and stress free our wedding week and weekend were as a result of her over-the-top efforts. In fact, I'm sure I will not be able to do so. It hopefully suffices to say that you would be remiss to not consult with Cathy first about your event, and to then book her quickly before someone beats you to her. After getting engaged we weren't sure if we needed or wanted a wedding planner; we -- I -- thought it might be too pricey for our budget. But after working with Cathy I found my foot in my mouth several times over. She's so organized, so knowledgeble, and so detail oriented; with the biweekly calls to stay in sync and ontrack, and the lists upon lists upon lists, among other things, I realized quickly what a bargain we were getting. We worked with Cathy for over a year to plan our event, and now proudly call her a friend and... Read more

  • Creative. Organized. Accessible. Caring. Flexible. Calm. Professional. All words that so perfectly describe Cathy and the services she brought to our daughter's wedding. Her expertise and attention to detail allowed everyone (including the bride and groom) to enjoy the day. It was a perfect wedding.

  • Cathy is officially the second greatest woman in my life (and if not for her, the first likely would not have a new last name). Absolutely no chance we'd have made it through the wedding process without her help making her, without question, the best decision we made. We'd hire her again for travel/dinner/child planning if we could :)

  • Cathy was so well organized and so insightful to all of our needs. As the mother of the bride , I must confess that wE never could have had this type of wedding (in a barn) without her help and guidance. She not only provided assistance whenenever we needed, was always available when we needed it but she went beyond our expectations for what a wedding planner does and literally guided us all down the aisle! We recommend her highly and you are a lucky bride and bride's family to have Cathy as your guide on this great wedding adventure!!

  • My new husband spent the last 18 months joking that he was leaving me for Cathy. She is incredibly organized and efficient-- yet also patient and flexible. She was always accessible, easy to work with and fantastic with my high maintenance parents. We used her services at Pond Lily-- she also helped with rentals, transportation, and other areas where we would be lost and confused without her guidance. She was indispensable in making our big day perfect- and we cannot rave about her or thank her enough.
