  • Christine and her team were amazing! On a frantic day, they were calming, and had a great energy. They were on top of it- but everyone loved them. I did the Day Of package as well as design input. We had a pinterest board full of ideas, etsy postings, etc and she came up with some great ideas that made the wedding feel very special. Our guests appreciated how well thought out it was, and that made me feel great! We were very lucky that Christine was our planner- she is SO good at what she does, and her team carries the same energy with her. She kept me going when I would get stuck on things and was a great sounding board. She felt like my friend and my planner! She's impossible not to like- and I think there's something to not being afraid of your planner. There is a way to keep things moving but in a nice, fun, celebratory manner- which is what she and her team were able to do! Love Christine and would use her all over again!!!!

  • As a couple, when we began thinking about the wedding planning process we were not sure that we needed a planner or could afford to hire one. After many interviews Christine with Piece of Cake Events was one of only two vendors that took us seriously given our budget, which was about $20k. Christine listened to our wants and wishes (both of us... not just the bride!), formed a package to suit our needs, and from the moment we hired her she was there with us every step of the way. She found us a unique venue and excellent vendors to fit our budget. She saved us money on more than one negotiation with vendors, answered all of our calls and emails promptly, was always fun to work with, and she even put out a couple of last minute fires on the day of the wedding. (Figurative fires, people. Not literal ones.) Looking back on the whole experience we do not regret a thing. Piece of Cake deserves a more thorough review than this, but I have to run now. So in summary let's just say that C... Read more

  • Christine was amazing as my doc!! She kept everyone on time and in check and was always calm and composed when everyone one else was buzzing around! She even brought dinner over to our babysitter who was with our daughter in the hotel next door! Amazing and worth her weight in gold!! Thank you!!!

  • Christine was one of the best investments towards our wedding. She helped us find all of our vendors, gave us ideas and feedback that made decision making a breeze. Using Pieces of cake events made our wedding planning a lot less stressful, kept us on schedule and helped to make our wedding worry free. We can truly say we had the most beautiful wedding and we owe it to Christine. If we ever need any other party planning help we would definitely use her services and strongly recommend Piece of Cake Event to all brides to be.

  • Deciding to hire Piece of Cake Events was the best decision my husband and I made in all of our wedding planning. From our introductory meeting with Christine, to our final walk through before the big day, we were blown away by how helpful Christine and Amy were. Our wedding was at a historic building and required coordination of every part of the wedding. Piece of Cake Events helped us keep everything organized and allowed us to really enjoy our wedding day instead of spending the whole time worrying about coordination. From sewing a broken zipper in one of my bridesmaids dresses, to fixing our lighting situation, to ensuring that everything was exactly what we wanted, I would say Piece of Cake Events really can work magic! Thank you to Christine for helping us with vendor selection and our initial planning and thank you to Amy for helping us around the big day! You and your assistants really made the whole day wonderful and we cannot thank you enough :)

  • Christine and Devon did an amazing job with our wedding! Christine was really responsive and helpful in the months leading up to the wedding, and our wedding went off so smoothly because of their work. People kept telling us how relaxed we were at our wedding - and I know it was due to our decision to hire Piece of Cake Events!

  • Christine and her associates are professional, knowledgeable, funny, and compassionate. Throughout the entire process, Christine was able to anticipate my needs as a bride. Our Day of Coordination package included an initial meeting, unlimited email access, a skype meeting, a final in-person meeting, and 8 hours of her coordination. I originally thought that Christine would only help us the day of the wedding, but she helped us through the entire process. She gave us advice on vendors, discussing with us vendors she had worked with before and who she had liked. Perhaps the most important piece of advice she gave us was to book the room block ASAP (it was Sept. 2012 and I was getting married in Aug. 2013 at the Vineyard Caterers), because hotels on the east end book up quickly! I asked Christine all sorts of questions from the trivial to the profound via email; she answered all of them quickly and attentively. When Christine had to take a maternity leave in the spring, she assigned... Read more

  • We used Christine and her assistant from Piece of Cake to help out on the day of our wedding. This was one of our best investments now that we look back. We met with Christine awhile before our day and signed a contract and make a down payment, which was extremely reasonable. We were in touch if I needed anything or had questions along the way through the planning process by email. A few weeks before the wedding we met again to finalize everything. Christine asked if we had a timeline of how we wanted the day to go. We looked at her and said, "Timeline!?" We had no idea we needed to create a timeline of how we wanted the day to go. Christine helped us plan how we wanted the day to go, we revised it a few times and with the help of her and our venue, everything went off without one issue. We were confident in her decisions and we didn't have to worry about anything. Getting married is a big deal and can be stressful when you have 250 guests coming to see you ... Read more

  • Christine, Amy and Tricia were all wonderful additions to my wedding. They were fun to be around, super competent and alleviated a lot of headaches. Amy and Tricia worked my wedding and were so communicative and helpful throughout the day, without being in the way at all. Considering all you pay for a wedding, and how long you look forward to it - I think not paying the very reasonable amount charged for at the very least "month of" coordination is totally crazy. The bottom line is day of you will have issues, and you'll be grateful to have a team member from Piece of Cake on board to be the eyes and ears of your day of any problems on your day - as well as their anticipatory thoughtfulness (ie bringing a bag of umbrellas for my outdoor wedding just in case). I whole heartedly recommend them!

  • I like to consider myself a fairly organized person, but planning a wedding can be a little daunting so I hired a day of coordinator to help with the little things. What I didn't realize was exactly how incredible the Piece of Cake team would be on our actual wedding day. I was in communication with Christine on and off for the months leading up to the wedding asking for advice, etc. and she was always incredibly responsive and informative. Then two weeks out from the wedding we had a call to discuss the timeline and she put everything together and was able to calm my nerves with just the phone call! From getting in touch with all of our vendors, putting together the timeline, and helping keep my family informed it was some of the best money we spent for our wedding. On our actual wedding day, I know there was a lot of work going on behind the scenes (which my other vendors complimented the POC team on) but from the moment the girls arrived they put me at ease and were so helpful ...

  • I can't say enough good things about Christine from Piece of Cake Events. When I first got engaged, I knew I wanted to do everything on my own and knew I couldn't afford a wedding planner. Then, I learned exactly what a DOC does and thought, for piece of mind, I was going to hire someone. And thank god I did! Christine was everything and more! With our wedding having to be moved from 11/2/12 to 11/3/12 due to Hurricane Sandy, and in 48 hours no less, I was so grateful to have Christine by my side! She helped me not only take 2 years of planning and squeeze it into 2 days but she was also my friend and my shoulder to lean on and my therapist! She went above and beyond my expectations! We could not have gotten through what we went through without Christine and because of that I feel forever in her debt! So, not only is she good in a crisis, she is extremely knowledgeable and quick to respond to any question or query you might have. She is reliable and attentive and was amazing ... Read more

  • Piece of Cake was absolutely wonderful during planning and day of coordination, especially since our wedding was very much Do It Yourself. Christine and Lisa always offered ideas and suggestions, but were not at all pushy. They were great partners throughout the process. With a DIY wedding, having a day of coordinator to keep the wedding party and all our vendors on schedule and in the right places was such a gift for me and my husband. I couldn't imagine the level of stress if we had to be the ones doing that. We were able to truly relax and enjoy our day knowing that Piece of Cake was there, giving us Peace of Mind.

  • Christine was my day of coordinator and she went above and beyond to ensure my wedding day was enjoyable and stress free. From the time we started working together, she was always available to offer suggestions or answer any questions I had. In the weeks leading up to my wedding, she confirmed all of my vendors & created a timeline for the day of which helped everyone stay on track. Additionally, she also kept the bridal party organized & on time which wasn't an easy task. There was a minor mishap with one of my vendors & Christine immediately stepped in and handled it so my husband and I wouldn't have to worry. I don't know what we would have done without her that day! Thanks again for everything! - Melissa & Philipp

  • Christine, What can I say except that you were magnificent! Thanks to you, I was able to enjoy my daughter's wedding without a worry! You were magnificent! You assisted her in getting ready and dressed so that I could get both myself and my mother-in-law ready. You paid attention to every detail and the timing and schedule so I didn't have to give it a thought. You worked so well with the bridal party and other vendors so everything went off without a hitch. All I can say is whoever thinks they can do it without you are crazy. Thank you, thank you for making my daughter's wedding day stress free and enjoyable. -Mary Barden-Maffei
