  • 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.

  • Cathy Ballone may be the best wedding coordinator in the world! She is so thoughtful, creative and organized, that planning my wedding was a breeze. She was incredibly easy to communicate with and displayed the utmost professional attitude and behavior at all times. Sadly, Cathy was not available for day of coordination for my wedding but her associate Angie filled her space. Angie was also just as organized as Cathy and had a smile on her face from the minute I met her. She totally understood my vision for the day and helped to make my day extra special. Her sweet and friendly disposition was noticeable even to the guests. She took care of everything for me. I needed superglue...she magically appeared with three tubes!! She even video'ed my first dance with my husband! How sweet is that?! I would have been lost on my wedding day without her. I can not thank Angie and Cathy enough for all their help and support. They are truly an incredible duo. I would highly recommend hiring Ca... Read more

  • We cannot say enough fabulous words to describe Cathy and her team! By the end of our planning, Cathy had become family! Cathy helped us create a beautiful camp wedding weekend (bringing in everything) and working with us on every aspect from Friday nights dinner to the wedding reception itself. Her organization made everything possible and she shows her expertise while also letting her clients achieve their own visions. Cathy will go above and beyond to make sure her clients feel comfortable and take the stress away from the big day. We highly reccomend her for all types of weddings and events!

  • I would like to echo many of the comments in the other reviews on this page. Put simply, Cathy and her team are amazing at their jobs. She is a true professional who is detail oriented without being obtrusive. Throughout the process, my wife and I counted on her to sweat the small stuff so we didn't have to. Cathy's level of organization, event planning knowledge and positive attitude helped significantly mitigate the stress and anxiety that can be inherent to wedding planning. She truly helped us focus on what we felt were the "important" aspects of our wedding; the ceremony and having FUN. I can unequivocally recommend Cathy and her team.

  • There aren't enough words to describe how incredible Cathy has been for my husband and I throughout this entire past year in wedding planning. From the moment we spoke with her in the beginning of our planning process, she instantly eased all of our anxiety. She is organized, smart, flexible, friendly, knows the best vendors and the best prices, and most importantly- always available when you need her. I can honestly say that we would not have been able to do it with out her. When there were bumps in the road and stresses from vendors- she always remained calm, cool, and collected- which is exactly the type of person you want when you're planning a wedding. Cathy and her team were professional and amazing during our actual wedding as well. There wasn't a moment that they weren't right there handling everything. Cathy and her team made sure my husband and I enjoyed every moment of our special day- and handled all of the issues our venue was having. My husband and I had no idea all ... Read more

  • Cathy enabled us to enjoy our wedding day in a way that just would not have been possible without her. She was extremely helpful leading up to the wedding; before speaking with Cathy, I hadn't realized how helpful it would be to have someone to help guide you regarding vendors in the area- very important!! She created meticulous, thoughtful layouts for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for both rain and shine, as well as the BEST day-of schedule (all of our other vendors were SUPER impressed with Cathy). Cathy worked with my husband and me to find times to chat on the phone, despite our crazy grad student schedules. On the day of the wedding, I was totally confident that Cathy knew all of the details, and I could finally let go and enjoy the day we had been planning for so long. She was the person we turned to throughout our wedding to help with issues as they arose (thanks for handing us some food and water, and for asking me if I needed help with my dress that I had rippe...

  • We can say without a doubt that Cathy is the best in the business. No matter what time or day it is if you need her she is there and I needed her a lot. I keep saying that if I did not have her help I probably would not have gotten married and it is true she is so organized which I love! She makes sure you have a print out of time lines and so on so you know what you should be doing each month this way you are not doing things that do not need to be done yet. She is amazing you will not be disappointed by booking her to help you plan your wedding she really is the best. Thank you Cathy for everything!!

  • Hiring Cathy was by far the best decision we made when starting to plan our wedding! From the very start she went out of her way to make sure the process was smooth, efficient, and as pain free as possible. She is warm, compassionate, open minded and will listen to your wants/needs as well as make her own suggestions along the way. She has great connections in the Hudson Valley and NYC area and was able to recommend terrific vendors that made our wedding a huge success. Our actual wedding day turned out better than we ever could have imagined and we have Cathy to thank for that. Not only did we leave with memories that will last a lifetime but also a new friendship as well!

  • First of all, let me just say that Cathy is an all around awesome person. It was so fun getting to spend time with her and getting to know her during this process. Cathy made every little detail of our fairytale wedding come true. She was terrific during the planning process. When I wanted to try to handle projects myself, she stepped back and let me handle them, but was always there if I needed advice or help with anything. When I needed her to be more involved and hands on, I felt completely confident and comfortable letting her take things in the direction that she felt was best. She was always quick to answer emails and talk on the phone to hash out big picture items or last minute details. The week leading up to the wedding Cathy was AMAZING. We spent almost 2 hours on the phone making sure every last detail was taken care of and exactly the way I envisioned it. She ran our ceremony in the pouring rain and was always cheerful and positive, she was there for me for moral... Read more

  • My wife and I were married on September 10, 2016, at the Farm at Pond Lily in Elizaville, New York. Cathy was our wedding planner for this momentous event. Living in San Francisco and planning a wedding across the country is no small feat. Without Cathy's skill and knowledge of wedding planning, our wedding would not have been possible. From the very beginning of our wedding journey, Cathy was very easy to work with, nice, enthusiastic, and steadily guided us through all the necessary decisions. She displayed outstanding organizational skills and attention to detail, and worked countless hours planning and advising my wife and her mother on every single detail of the wedding day. Cathy was very response to all our questions and made us feel very comfortable by the time our special day came around. Throughout our wedding preparation and the day of, Cathy was always there making sure that everything we needed was taken care of. Cathy took the time to liaise with each wedding vendor... Read more

  • Cathy is great helping you figure out your options during the wedding planning stage. Start early. She was invaluable as a day of coordinator. She took control but was inconspicuous; we all enjoyed the party as if we were guests. Everything went smoothly.
