  • Every experience my husband and I have had with Felicia and her team has been absolutely perfect. The first time we spoke with her over the phone we knew she would be the right choice. Felicia is responsive, informative, incredibly helpful, and overall a wonderful person. We love our time spent with her. Thank you, Felicia for making our day seamless, stress-free, and unforgettable!

  • Felicia has been there with us every step of the way. Prior to finding Felicia we were struggling to find a venue on top of balancing our hectic lives, one of us working as a nurse and the other working full time while attending grad school. She helped us get our timeline straight and on track, guiding us through the confusing and time consuming process of planning a wedding. She especially helped with answering questions and working with vendors to make sure that we were safe to reschedule if we had to given our wedding occurred during COVID-19. She kept the legalities in mind and I'm certain that if something would have happened her work in doing this would have paid off. Everything went off without a hitch and the wedding itself was a blast! Everybody who came had a whole lot of fun. Would certainly recommend!

  • We contacted Felicia in the last days of our wedding prep to serve as a "day of" coordinator; she ended up being a day of savior! Her attention to detail and genuine care that we get everything we wanted for our special day -- which was happening during the restriction of COVID-19 -- made all the difference. She was recommended by friends of ours, whose wedding we attended. That, too, was flawless. She is kind, direct, and the most amazing professional. If you need a General for your Wedding War Room, think no more. We are so grateful to her and her amazing care.

  • Felicia went above and beyond expectations for our wedding. She is responsive, asks questions you might not have thought of, manages vendors smoothly, creates a fantastic timeline for you, and even handled a bridesmaid fracturing her finger right before the ceremony! She always is looking out for you. We felt well taken care of the day-of and in our planning. We were so impressed with her work. If you need a wedding planner, she’s the one!

  • Felicia is AMAZING. We hired her to plan our wedding, and it was such a good decision--the single best decision we made, because she set us up to make so many other good calls. She helped us find the perfect venue. And she connected us with great vendors, and then interfaced with them and organized everything so we didn't have to worry about it. She helped me find bridal shops and made appointments for me at them (surprisingly time-consuming!), got us a budget-friendly DJ at the very last minute, made the rehearsal with our ginormous wedding party actually run well, and totally rolled with the punches when we changed our wedding date early on. Our wedding weekend was honestly stress-free. Everything about the wedding day went right (at least as far as I knew!), and I didn't have to worry about anything. She let us focus on our guests and each other, which was so great. I can't recommend her highly enough.

  • Felicia Owens Smith is a fabulous wedding planner! She assisted our daughter in planning a Nov. 2 wedding in Old Town Alexandria VA. She is organized, professional and consistently gave time and money saving advice. Felicia recommended a variety of vendors based on our requests, negotiated contracts and helped us maintain a timeline throughout the planning process. We had not originally planned to use a planner but Felicia was, by far, the most worthwhile expense! Felicia and her team were incredibly organized and efficient. Every detail was managed in a thoughtful, helpful way. We were able to relax and truly enjoy the day thanks to her invaluable expertise!

  • Highly recommend Celebrations Made Simple. This team is professional, experienced, responsive, caring, affordable and offer easy to use on line systems. They are detailed oriented and provide excellent follow up. Genuinely nice people who will make your event shine. Cannot say enough great things about working with this business. We used them to oversee a welcome reception on night before wedding. They assisted in helping determine the right amount of feed to order. They delivered food to the event, displayed the food, refreshed food as needed and cleared dishes during the event. We were able to enjoy the event and not worry about a thing. The set up was beautiful and we could not have done it without them.

  • Hiring Felicia was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! She was a true professional and took over the wedding planning process three months before our wedding. She was great to work with, super responsive to all our questions and requests, and put us at complete ease. She was also very organized and detail oriented and kept us on track and on schedule for all the major wedding planning milestones. Felicia was also a fantastic sounding board for different ideas (arrangements, decorations, flow, etc.) and helped us execute our vision perfectly. Overall, she and her team did a great job on our wedding and we couldn't be happier! We got so many compliments afterwards from our guests on how nice our wedding was and a good chunk of that goes to Felicia and her team. Our only regret is that we didn't hire her sooner.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful review. It was truly our pleasure! Both you and Becky were awesome and so much fun to work with.

  • Felicia accomplished the impossible— the bride and groom were busy with work, the mothers were on opposite coasts, and our special event surpassed all expectations. She accommodated varying schedules, worked with our preferences and price points, and set high standards for all family celebrations to come. She handled the numerous details and relieved us of all pressure and worry — so much so that we enjoyed the wedding as much as our guests! I highly recommend Felicia— she is very capable and keeps everything on track while maintaining a relaxed and friendly demeanor.

  • Working with Felicia at Celebrations Made Simple was definitely the best decision we made for our wedding. She was so organized, detail oriented, and helpful. We probably wouldn't have had the vendors we needed for our wedding without Felicia. We found Felicia through a friend's recommendation and I have recommended her to everyone I know who is currently engaged. Her prices are exceptionally reasonable and she takes care of everything. I really can't recommend her enough. If I ever plan another event with 130 guests again, I know the first thing I do will be to book Felicia to help.

  • Hiring Felicia and her team at CMS was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. We first met her when she planned a wedding in which I (the bride) was a bridesmaid, almost 6 years ago. I was so impressed by her performance at my friend's wedding that I saved her name and vowed that I would hire her for my wedding--whenever that eventually happened. Fast-forward five years, I got engaged, and one of the first things we did was reach out to Felicia. My expectations were high, but she nevertheless exceeded them. We purchased her month-of package, but the services she provided went far beyond the month before the wedding. Felicia is responsive, a level-headed problem solver, and just generally made our lives SO much easier. From providing advice, to giving us access to planning tools, to guiding us through the planning process, Felicia was well worth the investment. Honestly, just the fact that you can load her car with all your decorations and other supplie... Read more

  • Felicia (and her team) were amazing. She took the time to really "get" what we wanted and then made it happen. And while she is on top of every detail, she also has a low-stress demeanor that reduced my stress level. Would hire her again in a heart beat.
