  • We couldn't have better things to say about working with Christine (and Vivian/ the rest of her staff that joined us on our wedding day!). Each of them is truly a master of their craft. If you read nothing else, know this -- you absolutely won't regret hiring Christine for your event. Planning: She honestly took all of the stress out of the past 12 months so we could enjoy planning our wedding and being engaged! She immediately understood our vision and helped us create a day that was perfectly us. She walked us through every step of the planning process, putting us at ease throughout the mountain of decisions that needed to be made, simplifying each into bite size chunks (and - perhaps most importantly, keeping us on schedule). She knew where to save and where to spend to best use our budget. She made each decision easy, giving us a few vendor options for each category -- doing ALL the negotiation work behind the scenes -- and explaining the pros/cons for vendor. I cannot also...

  • Our wedding was almost a month ago and we are still on cloud 9! We originally reached out to Christine with CMG Events because we were having a difficult time finding a venue that matched our needs/wants. She immediately made us a list of venues that checked our boxes and set up appointments at each of them. The stress was instantly lifted off of our shoulders! We knew from that moment on that hiring Christine was the best decision we could ever make! As soon as we booked our venue, Christine hit the ground running. We were checking boxes off of our “to-do list” left and right. Every phone call, email, or text from Christine was a breath of fresh air. She never allowed us to overlook anything or skip over the tiniest of details. We never felt stressed or overwhelmed and that is a direct representation of Christine’s passion and professionalism. Christine especially shines on the day of the wedding. She is calm and collected throughout the entire process and never allows you to fe... Read more

  • I cannot rave enough about Christine and her team! As a bride I was on the hunt for someone who could not only be a great planner but also someone I could get along with naturally, as we would be working together for the next year. The moment I spoke Christine I knew she was the one for us! Throughout the process Christine was a gem and made us feel as stress free as a bride and groom can be. She was there to answer every question, late night texts, emails and urgent matters that came up. Hiring Christine and her team was the best wedding decision my fiance and I could have made! Those girls gave us the best day of our lives!

  • Christine was great during our initial introduction and kick-off calls for my wedding. I was paired with Maggie who, from the get-go, was helpful, sweet, and personable. Maggie was always responsive and gave great insight and suggestions to every wedding question I threw her way. The week of our wedding and day of, we had a couple moments of craziness and stress, but Maggie always had my back and kept me sane. I am so thankful for everything she did and would recommend her to anyone! Thank you Maggie for being such a rockstar!

  • CMG has been great to work with! Originally I was debating between hiring or not hiring a wedding planner for my wedding. After meeting Christine, she was so personable and professional. With that in mind, we decided to give CMG a shot as she assured us they would be able to help every step along the way. Throughout the planning process, Christine was super quick and responsive - this is something I truly appreciate as a bride! When there's a million thoughts going through your mind, Christine was always there to keep us (or myself) calm. Now that the wedding is all finished, I can safely say we couldn’t have done it without them. From preparing quotes and contracts with vendors, to piecing together all the details, and even rounding up all the drinking guests. One thing you forget as a bride is how difficult it is in the day of to keep track of everything with so much going on. Having Christine and her team available throughout the entire process has made the stressful times ... Read more

  • I had the pleasure of having Maggie Chen be my day of coordinator! From the start Maggie was SUPER quick to reply to my emails, call and text. Every time I asked her for some suggestion, she would send me a few within the hour. It doesn't matter what day or time, Maggie would respond so quickly. During my wedding planning, I was having a rough time finding a calligrapher. Everyone was booked out or super unresponsive. Maggie saw my struggle and came to the rescue! She does calligrapher on the side and was willing to help with my larger signs and seating chart. Maggie is also very flexible. The day of my rehearsal, she actually had another wedding to execute. She made it work with moving my rehearsal earlier to be there for us and then went to her other wedding. The day of my wedding, surprisingly (but not really with Maggie) everything was executed flawlessly. There was nothing that went wrong. The only thing I had to worry about was trying to hold back my tears every hour! Maggie ... Read more

  • Christine and the CMG Team are absolutely amazing! We got married in September 2019 and connected with Christine back in September of 2018. Outside of knowing we need a venue to have the wedding, we didn’t know too much about the granular details of what goes into planning a wedding, especially one with up to 400 guests. Christine did a wonderful job explaining everything in layman’s terms and providing us with the clarity and understanding we needed to make our decisions. During our initial interview – Christine was able to thoroughly understand our wants, needs, must haves, and overall vision. Everything that was presented from the venue shopping down to the tablecloth and place setting was in line with our vision. The attention to detail from CMG really set the bar. We both lead fairly busy lives with career and family and Christine was very cognizant of that. Our options, vendor lists, quotes, etc. were presented in an organized fashion, which made our decision making pro... Read more

  • We knew we wanted Christine to be a part of our wedding from the moment we first met her over video chat, and we feel so lucky to have planned our wedding with Christine by our side for almost a year a half! Christine did a phenomenal job. She guided us through every step of the process and helped us select amazing vendors to execute our vision. Selecting vendors can be overwhelming but Christine helped us narrow down the choices and handled the communications, which was incredibly helpful. Christine was always available to chat and patiently answered our many, many questions. She offered advice when we couldn't make up our minds and came up with creative ideas to make our day extra special and personalized. When life got busy, Christine would check in on us to make sure we were on track. During the days leading up to the wedding, our family and friends commented on how calm we were, and this was because we knew we were in the best hands with Christine and her team. We did not have to ... Read more

  • Hire Christine and her team at CMG Weddings & Events. It will be the best and simplest decision you make during your whole wedding planning experience. Know that “Full Service Planning” could mean different things to different planners. For some it just means they are involved at the beginning middle and end of the process. With Christine, it means she is not just involved but engaged and supportive and excited for you and in communication every day. Christine will constantly be thinking of creative solutions and personal touches and ways to make your day truly spectacular in exactly the way you want it to be. I had to plan my Northern California wedding long distance from New York. I have a demanding job and my fiancé travels constantly for work. I was really worried about making it happen and the stress the event would inflict on my family who was on the ground in CA. Christine completely came to the rescue, taking everything off of our plate from communicating with vendo... Read more

  • If you don't have time to read the whole review, all you need to know is that Christine is truly the best in the business. I have now seen her coordinate two wedding (mine and a close friend's), and both were executed flawless. Without breaking the budget, you can have Christine and her team relieve you of all your wedding day stresses and be fully present to actually enjoy your wedding. Worth every penny and more. In all honesty, I was very skeptical about the value that a wedding coordinator could add to my wedding - my husband (then fiance) and I are both hyper organized, and I was confident we could get it done ourselves. Fortunately it was in our venue contract that we needed to have a wedding coordinator. We interviewed many coordinators and ultimately went with Christine off of a friend's recommendation. The only hesitation was the fact that Christine had not previously worked at our venue before (Calistoga Ranch) and it is a more complex venue as we were utilizing three dif... Read more

  • Christine and the CMG Weddings & Events team are hands down the best in the business! I've known Christine prior to working with her on my wedding but seeing her in action as a planner has made me have a whole new respect for her. She is so professional, organized, and detailed. I don't know how she juggles all that she does but she does puts 100% into it all and it shows. From the planning platform she provided for us to use throughout the year, to the millions of texts, phone calls and emails she responded to, to making me feel totally normal even though I know I could be very annoying and indecisive, she really is the best. She helped us find most of our vendors based on what we wanted, she kept reminding me of every detail I needed to remember to consider if I hadn't done so yet, and she even personally loaded her own car with our decorations the night before our wedding, set up everything the day of, and loaded our car again after the wedding so we didn't have to worry about a thi...

  • We hired CMG Events and Christine Garrison to act as a month of coordinator and provide design assistance for our July 2019 wedding. I am very detail oriented, organized, and a perfectionist when it comes to event planning, so I had difficulty trusting even close friends to help with our wedding. Christine was able to not only meet my impossible standards but far exceeded them. She truly understood our priorities and vision and completely delivered during both the planning process and on the day of. Leading up to the wedding, she was communicative, organized, and on top of every single detail. Once she took over coordinating our vendors, I never had to worry about it again. When we first hired her, she gave tons of vendor suggestions and we ended up booking our awesome DJ and Florist on her recommendation. During the final weeks, she worked with the venue and all the vendors to iron out all the details and get everyone on the same page. She was in constant contact with emails eac... Read more

  • Hiring CMG Events was the best decision I could have made! Maggie and Christine are both incredibly patient, kind, low stress, and attended to every single detail. I could put my complete trust in Maggie and Christine which is rare in the wedding industry. Their responsiveness was unparalleled and their main focus was making sure the bride and groom are happy on their big day. Thank you so much CMG for being the best wedding planners! Would definitely recommend not looking anywhere else for a planner!

  • Christine and Vivian were absolutely amazing to work with- they are both very professional, friendly and outgoing! Vivian was our wedding coordinator and she made our day perfect! She handled all the logistics for the vendors to arrive at the right times, setup our venue to make it beautiful and made sure we stayed on time. She made me feel at ease the day of the wedding where I did not need to worry about even one detail because I knew she had it handled. She was easy to get a hold of, came up with ideas and suggestions when we were stuck on what to do, and told us straight up if she thought something would work or not - loved that about Vivian!! We absolutely loved working with Christine and Vivian, If we could have a second wedding, I would hire CMG in a heart beat!

  • The best advice I can give to any newly engaged couples: hire CMG Events immediately!! For any couples considering or wondering if they should hire a wedding planner, let me promise you, this was HANDS DOWN the best money we spent throughout the entire wedding process! One of the greatest memories I have looking back on our wedding day is that we were truly in the moment with our family and friends, and I credit that 100% to Christine and her team running and executing a flawless event. The dedication of Christine was seen and noticed by every one of our guests, many of them complimenting on how smoothly everything went! On the biggest day of our lives, it was so comforting to know that we had a professional, experienced crew of people who were there to ensure that the event (and all of its moving parts) ran without a hitch. I never once was worried, panicked, or stressed on our wedding day, because I knew Christine was on top of EVERYTHING and had it under control. That factor a... Read more
