  • Hiring Alison Golt was such an amazing decision! We found her through our wedding venue, the National Museum of Women in the Arts; on our initial call, we were so impressed by her level of preparation, organization, and detail. In the leadup to the wedding, she found us amazing vendors and worked with them to build our vision for the event. On the day of the wedding, she was just incredible, handling things big and small (including sewing my sister back into her dress). It's certainly true that Alison made wedding planning much less stressful, and it's also true that our wedding was way more beautiful and fun because of Alison's hard work. We can't imagine a better planner!

  • My mom and I were fully prepared to plan and coordinate my wedding on our own, but were strongly encouraged to hire a month-of coordinator by our caterer. He recommended Alison, and we could not have been more grateful he did so. When she started with us six weeks before the weddig, she took everything over immediately and flawlessly. I can't even imagine how stressed I would have been without having her; she brought up and thought of SO many details that we never would have on our own that, looking back, truly made our wedding so much more enjoyable. Then, day of, when things inevitably didn't go as planned at certain points, Alison handled everything so well and kept my husband, my mom, and I at ease the entire time. We've said that of all the things we did for our wedding, hiring Alison was our best decision of all.

  • My husband and I are BEYOND happy that we hired Felicia with Cherry Blossom to be our day of wedding coordinator. We were very hands on with the wedding planning process and wondered if we even needed a day of coordinator -- and wow, we made the right decision!! Our whole day was executed perfectly thanks to Felicia! She helped us iron out the many logistical questions we had in the week leading up to the wedding, put together a timeline that kept the day together, and above all, we were able to enjoy our wedding without a worry in the world. Felicia was a pro and so wonderful to work with -- always very responsive and went above and beyond to make meetings with vendors. We'd highly recommend her and the Cherry Blossom team to any couple!

  • I was first attracted to Cherry Blossom one month after my engagement when I started to research local florists. I did not love how the resort decor and florals were very cookie cutter, I liked the unique designs I was seeing from them. Better yet, their reviews were amazing. I reached out and received immediate and prompt response from their team. They were SO patient as I asked for things I saw on Pinterest to be quoted and OMG their prices for what you will receive, the Value is incredible. The quality is NOT sacrificed, my photographer said to me "that arch must have cost thousands". Everything was just as the pictures I sent them. The delivery was prompt and bouquets delivered to my room. I highly reccommend Cherry Blossom. Their designs are unique and beautiful, the process of selecting decor/florals was smooth and they respond so quickly and are so professional. The flowers and the arch and everything was gorgeous. THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY DAY SO SPECIAL. - Caroline

  • We hired Jamie from Cherry Blossom Events for our October wedding. It was one of the best decisions we made! Not only was she there to handle all of the logistics on the wedding day, but she coordinated with vendors in the weeks leading up to the wedding and ran our rehearsal. I was completely confident in her and if there were any snafus I never learned about them! She has such a calm and positive energy and I highly recommend her and Cherry Blossom Events for all brides and grooms! Thank you, Jamie, for such a wonderful day!

  • Alison at Cherry Blossom Events is an absolutely incredible planner. She was incredibly organized and creative, and her attention to detail was impeccable. From our very first meeting we knew we didn't have to worry about a thing - she handled it all!! She was totally on top of things and took a huge amount of stress out of the entire wedding planning process. On the day of the wedding, my bridesmaids all commented on how calm I was. It was because I knew Alison was behind the scenes making it all happen! She even saved the day after I spilled tomato soup on the front of my dress during cocktail hour - she pinned the dress expertly and nobody was the wiser. We can't recommend her highly enough!!

  • We are so thankful we had Alison with us on our wedding day and leading up to. We went with a 6-week out package and she was a total lifesaver!! She kept us on schedule, handled the... difficult.. (you know what I mean :)) people in our group, directed the vendors, and did it all with such grace and tact! She made us feel so special. Despite having all of these other balls in the air, always checked in on us and made sure we were happy (and we were!!). Her eye for detail is paramount. Highly recommend working with her and her team!!

  • Having Alison Golt from Cherry Blossom Events coordinate our wedding was hands down one of the best decisions my husband and I made during the whole planning process! My husband and I both have Type A personalities and we had no issue handing over one of the most important days of our lives over to Alison. We did not experience any stress on our special day because we knew that Alison had everything under control and handled. We were able to fully enjoy the moment and that's a gift that we'll always be grateful to Alison for. She impressed us, our parents and our guests. I can't tell you how many times someone at the wedding came up to tell us how impressed they were with Alison. Even after the wedding, we, along with many of our guests, continued to sing her praises. If you are looking for someone to coordinate your wedding, please, please go with Alison!! You won't be disappointed.

  • My husband and I selected CBWE for our month-of-wedding coordination for our D.C. wedding in July 2019. We were thrilled with our coordinator, Alison Golt, who came recommended by a family friend of my mother. Alison is extremely resourceful, knowledgeable, professional, listens well, and friendly. And boy is she organized — enough to color my Excel-savvy husband and my to-do-list savant self impressed. Alison proved her worth from our very first meeting, laying out timelines, key decision points, and understanding our needs. She helped us chase our rehearsal dinner provider to lock down a contract after the restaurant went silent (3 weeks before the wedding!), quickly find a new hair stylist with 4 weeks to go, and find a videographer with 3 weeks to go during peak DC wedding season. She also marshaled resources to take care of one of our guests who, an hour into the reception, slipped down a flight of sharp stairs and ended up bleeding quite heavily, without distracting fro...

  • Hiring Alison was the single best decision we made in the planning process! Our wedding day was perfect and so much of that is due to Alison's work. We opted for full planning and worked with Alison for about a year, and it was such a pleasure - she's responsive, patient, knowledgeable, and detail-oriented. From finding us a venue that fit our style, to putting together a great team of vendors, to managing our budget, Alison did it all. The planning process can be stressful, but Alison kept us on track and made sure nothing ever fell through the cracks. Day-of, Alison kept everything running smoothly, managed all the vendors, even sewed my dress strap when it broke during the reception. If there were problems, I never knew about them - she made everything as stress-free for me as possible. My husband and I were able to relax and just enjoy the day. We could not have done it without Alison! Highly, highly recommend her!

  • We worked with Alison for our January 2020 wedding and I can say without a doubt that bringing her on board was one of the best decisions we made throughout our planning process. She went above and beyond in every way - always taking the time to talk through things with me and giving me thorough and well thought out advice. The day of our wedding she was extremely organized, professional, and a calming presence for us all. She was on top of every little detail and even though I got a bit sick during our wedding, she made sure we stayed on schedule while soothing me and reassuring me everything would be OK. She is a rock star and I highly encourage you to hire her to make your wedding everything you want it to be!

  • I can't imagine having pulled off my wedding without Alison! She is great! My husband and I got married a little over a week ago after working with Alison for 18 months. She thought of everything, and made it possible for me to plan my wedding in Maryland while living in California. We faced the potential of a hurricane impacting our wedding, and Alison thought of contingency plans and we trusted she would help us have a beautiful wedding no matter what. Alison answered all of my questions, and always responded quickly to my emails. She is also incredibly sweet and easy to be around. My parents agree, and they too will tell you to "hire Alison!"
