  • Christine & her team are the best people to have by your side the year leading up to your wedding - or more depending on what uncertainties come up! We hired Christine a couple of months after we got engaged to plan our classic & big San Francisco wedding. Christine was always on top of it - with in person meetings to face time calls to answering emails - I never doubted if Christine would reply with an "I'm on it" or tactical advice. All of our vendors were picked in months and Christine just got our style and vision - she left me with no worries that we were right on track to have our wedding! THEN COVID HIT! & no one was sure what events would look like towards the tail end of the year. I appreciated Christine taking off her business hat and giving us advice that would ensure WE had the day that WE wanted! Once we pulled the trigger and postponed to 2021,Christine had all of our contracts for all of our vendors switched over without us needing to do anything all in a couple of days.... Read more

  • I am truly thankful to CMG Events and Christine Garrison for helping make the process of wedding planning so magical. My fiancé popped the big question in September of 2019. With unexpected events coming in the 2020 year we were left scared of what the future held for our big day. With our plan to get married in 2021 Christine and her team have worked hard to create the perfect vision for our wedding weekend. During the 2020 year it was so refreshing to have her check in via Zoom, text, and email while we were under lockdown. As well as, sending over vendors, or fun inspiration ideas to keep us looking forward to the big day. As we are now in September of 2020 I can only imagine the stress with all the changes Christine and these vendors have been going through to move weddings to the 2021 year. As we are headed into the ending months of 2020 we are now finalizing the last details for our wedding day in SLO. With that, Christine has made sure everything leading up to this point ha...

  • Hiring Christine as the wedding planner for our daughter's wedding was by far the best decision we made! She guided and supported us through numerous changes, including a postponement, change in venue and all the uncertainties surrounding COVID. Her positive attitude and enthusiasm were contagious and helped to alleviate the stress through all of the changes. Special thanks to Maggie who helped out during Christine's maternity leave. Christine is incredibly organized and knowledgeable and always kept us on track with Zoom calls, emails and in-person meetings. The day of the wedding was magical and perfect in every way. Everything ran like clockwork thanks to Christine and her team, who were at the venue from early morning until the very end to ensure that every detail was taken care of. We could enjoy the amazing day as Christine had everything under control. Christine is truly a gem and we give her the highest recommendation!

  • The best wedding planning decision we made was having Christine be our wedding planner. She was absolutely amazing and helped us create the most magical wedding of our dreams. She took the stress out of wedding planning (during a pandemic no less) by helping us build our dream vendor team, keeping us on track planning wise, and giving us inspiration for ideas. Christine is extremely organized, responsive, professional, knowledgeable, kind and full of energy and excitement for your big day. She is your biggest cheerleader and goes above and beyond as your wedding planner both during the planning process and on the day of. Two months into wedding planning, COVID hit and we felt especially lucky and grateful to have CMG in our corner when we had to start thinking about postponing. Christine and Maggie took the stress out of rescheduling all our vendors (and a slight venue change) when we made the difficult decision to postpone to 2021. Christine kept us excited about the postpon... Read more

  • CMG Events was wonderful to work with for our daughter's wedding. The originally planned date had to be postponed three times due to COVID and they were always on top of everything that needed to be done in terms of date changes with vendors, mailing new Save the Dates, keeping us in the loop, and any budgetary issues or changes. They are incredibly responsive to emails and phone calls - which was great for us! Christine and Maggie are extremely professional, kind, and flexible. They were able to assist us in finding excellent new vendors when the new date(s) did not work out for the original vendors. As the mother of the bride lived out of state and the bride did not live particularly close to the venue, having Christine and Maggie was the best thing we did in planning this wedding. We could not have done all the things that needed to be handled and had it go off as flawlessly as it did in the end. We were especially happy when they were able to have the ceremony Zoomed at the... Read more

  • Hiring Christine, Vivian and the entire CMG team was the best decision we made for our wedding! When we got engaged in March 2019, like most people, we had no idea we would end up having two postponements. Through all of the uncertainty, Christine was always there to calm our nerves and eliminated all of our stress. She seamlessly rescheduled ALL of our vendors twice and ensured everyone was on the same page. She was always quick to respond to any questions and was so flexible with any changes we wanted. Vivian was our day of coordinator and made our lives so easy. We were able to have the best day and enjoy time with our friends and families without having to think about anything. Our wedding was the most perfect day and there were zero complaints! We are so grateful to have hired the CMG team and would make the same decision a million times!

  • CMG events was amazing to work with! Our original planner suddenly quit on us a few months before our wedding and Christine and Vanessa stepped in and saved our day, so it really was a blessing in disguise! CMG really brought my vision to a reality and we couldn't be happier with how the whole day turned out! Christine and her staff will promptly answer emails and calls, are so organized, and give such attention to detail. All of the other vendors at our wedding loved working with them as well! I could go on and on, but if you are looking for a planner who will make your vision become a reality with relatively no stress or worry this is your team!

  • Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful and I knew from day one I wanted help. Christine provided several options for me and what would work best for my needs. She and her team where there to help me tie up all loose ends and make sure all vendors was on the same page. The attention to detail she provide was amazing. Nothing seems to get by her. She brought up all the little details that you don’t think of and made it extremely easy. Our day of wedding coordinator, Kim, was just as awesome. Very personable and made sure we stuck to our schedule. She showed up early and stayed until the very end to ensure all mine, my husbands and our families needs were met. I don’t think our wedding would have be a success without them.

  • 5 Stars in Everything!! Quality of service: We found Christine in Instagram and right away loved her smile and her page. We were looking for someone that was experienced, professional, and someone we could trust. And Christine and her team (shoutout to Maggie who helped out in the beginning) lived up to all these and more. We had our wedding on our private estate and this entailed a bit more work. Christine knew this from the get go which was something she taught us! This is something I appreciated since many of us are so new to planning, so learning a bit along the way and helping understand the why, really went a long way for me. The year of planning went by so smoothly, even with huge changes in plans (cutting the guest count and tennis court to choosing to flip our reception space). I really felt like I did NO WORK. Professionalism: On POINT!! I told her she could wear sweats on our video calls, but I was the only one in them. Hahaha just kidding! Christine knew exactly how to w... Read more

  • CMG Events was the best choice for our wedding coordination! We are so happy with how everything worked out for our wedding. CMG was super professional, flexible, and so easy to work with! They really did help coordinate the wedding of our dreams. Christine was super easy to chat with on the initial calls- very warm and informative. Our coordinator was Vivian who was such a gem and I'm so happy we got to work with her. Vivian was so fun and easy- felt like a girlfriend of mine and was just easy to work with. Incredibly responsive and took on so much for us and let me tell you we had a lot a difficult venue. She was such a champion for us and just kept us organized and helped so much. I know I wouldn't have been able to do this wedding without her. She helped coordinate our 230 person wedding and also help with our after party. I know they busted their a**** off to help us- so thank you so much to Vivian and the assistants. I would highly recommend CMG Events and Vivian... Read more

  • I loved working with Christine and her team! I'm a wedding calligrapher, and Christine came to me with the most beautiful vision for a wildflower-themed wedding. Even when I told her a couple of initial ideas would be hard to execute, she just got more creative in how we could bring the vision to life! Christine is great at communicating and making decisions and her team was a pleasure to work with the day of. Book CMG for a beautiful wedding and seamless planning experience, they go above and beyond!

  • In preparation for our 10/10/2020 wedding, I had hired CMG Events for their 60-day Coordination package. Even though our wedding plans really took a hit with the pandemic and the California wildfires, I'm so grateful that Christine became our primary coordinator and was there help us adapt to the situation and adjust our plans. She and my now-husband were my rocks. I didn’t initially want a wedding planner and wanted to take on the work myself; however, I’m so glad that we had Christine by our side. Our wedding day was a blur and I don’t know how we would have managed without CMG Events coordinating the day.

  • Booking a wedding planner is one of the first vendors you hire during the planning process. Thankfully we hired Christine from CMG Weddings and Events and she is literally THE best. Christine is kind, thorough, and reliable. She is able to understand what you want and what your vision is for your wedding. She always thoughtfully answered all my questions and gives great insight and advice. She helped us book our vendors months out before our big September 2020 wedding. Plenty of emails, texts, and FaceTime calls to get organized! Then Covid started and of course, as I’m sure all brides did, started freaking out and Christine was there for me. Random texts and emails were all replied to with care, concern, and comfort. With lots of thought and consideration we decided to change our wedding plans and Christine was always on board with our plans. We had our small elopement on our original date and it is all thanks to Christine. I HIGHLY recommend her and her team. Special th... Read more

  • 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...

  • Christine, Maggie, and the whole CMG team were so amazing throughout the entire process. I originally was going to plan the entire wedding myself, but after about three weeks realized that I had no idea what vendors to prioritize or what questions to ask to make our vision a reality. Trying to do it myself did nothing but stress me out. That is when I went in search of a wedding planner and found CMG. They were responsive, organized, professional, and took care of all of the logistics seamlessly. CMG made the planning process fun. Our wedding was originally scheduled for May 2020, and due to COVID we ended up having to change vendor plans and reschedule multiple times. The CMG team handled all of the rescheduling and vendor communications quickly and efficiently, taking all of the stress out of the postponement process. Once it finally arrived, our day turned out absolutely amazing! I am so thankful we chose CMG for our wedding coordination. All of our guests have been raving about ho... Read more
