  • If I could give Cathy a 100/100 rating I would. This wedding would not have happened if it wasn't for her. We were able to contact Cathy any day of the week at any time of the day. She helped us from the very beginning of the planning until the day of. She is extremely professional but at the same time came across as a friend. I would recommend Cathy to anyone getting married. She is worth every penny and helped make the most stressful moments seem simple. My wedding would not have been as amazing as it was if it weren't for her.

  • Cathy made sure that my wedding day was perfect. I was busy with work so I couldn't take care of a lot of details. She managed all my vendors and even pointed out some flaw (tent company tried to over charge us). She's sweet, honest, and professional. I would definitely recommend her service.

  • Cathy was awesome from day one. I can't tell you how helpful and thoughtful she was to work with. I really think her rate was completely reasonable especially given her level of execution. And she, and her assistant, are the kind of people we want at our wedding anyways. The wedding day was fantastic and I owe a lot of gratitude to Cathy and team. You did a fabulous job and we'll miss our daily check-ins. If Cathy is available and you can get her, grab her!

  • We decided fairly last minute (a few weeks before the wedding) to hire a day of coordinator, and we were so happy to have found Cathy! What a life-saver! From the start I knew I was in good hands, as she was able to narrow in on what we had left to get prepped, and took over corresponding with the vendors. She had so many helpful suggestions as we were going through the process. The day of, it was so nice to be able to focus on having fun with my bridesmaids as we prepped for the wedding. Cathy took care of all the set-up, and did such an amazing job. We had a pretty complicated wedding ceremony that involved a chairlift to a mountaintop, and the chairlift happened to breakdown the day of the wedding! Cathy seamlessly arranged an alternate plan and most of my guests didn't even know anything went wrong! We also had a few rambunctious, wandering groomsmen, and Cathy was able to keep everyone in line! Thank you Cathy for making my day so special!

  • Louis and I have entertained continuously during our 35 years together and had very specific points of view on what kind of feeling we hoped to create for our wedding guests. We contacted several “Wedding Planners." All were perfectly pleasant, but seemed very interested in what they did and much less interested in what we wanted. Cathy Ballone was entirely different. First- she listened. She was confident enough and smart enough to know that she could not tell us what she was going to do unless she knew what we wanted her to do. By the end of our first meeting we had decided to hire her. Cathy's Elegant Events could not have been more perfect. They thought of a ton of details that had never occurred to us, took responsibility for printing name cards and the like, organized our various suppliers and handled troubleshooting during the event. After the wedding, we learned that the venue had failed to mow the lawn under the tent and that Cathy had seamlessly handled this without... Read more

  • Cathy was instrumental in the planning of my wedding and many other events that I have had since then. With her help I was able to plan out an entire wedding in about two months time while my soon to be husband was in an entire different state. She made sure that things went smoothly as the day approached and I was worrying about every little detail. Then when the day arrived she helped keep me from losing my mind even when things didn’t go exactly as planned. Cathy helped make all of our favors, our centerpieces, and the decorations we used in our wedding and at the reception hall. If it wasn’t for Cathy I’m not sure we could have had such a wonderful night to remember.

  • She was a huge help and a great support for me during the planning process and helped me keep on track with planning, but also knew when to just be a friend. That is one of the rare special things about her that you may not find somewhere else, the fact that she cares as much as she does. She enjoys making a difference in others’ lives, by making an event special and memorable. She wants your wedding day or special event to be as wonderful and unique as you dreamed it to be, but within your budget at the same time. Cathy is the person to go to for help.

  • Cathy was an expert planner for what turned out to be a logistically tricky wedding at a difficult venue. Although it was her first time planning a wedding at Olana State Historic Site, she made sure we had everything in order that the site required (and the site required a lot!). She also lent her expertise to make sure that the day went smoothly for my guests and for me. She was creative when at the last minute, we decided we wanted a different rain plan for the cocktail hour, and did it all within the budget we already allocated. I had a beautiful wedding that was great fun for my guests, family, and my groom and myself. Because I had Cathy, I was spared 90% of the worrying and hassles in the days and weeks before the wedding. Speaking with girlfriends who have hired wedding planners, they are not all created equal and Cathy is the real deal, I would definitely recommend her to couples planning weddings in the Columbia/ Green Co. areas.
