We love design here at CM Events & Design, but 100% one of the best parts about our job are the clients and the relationships we build with each one! We are known for our prompt communication, ability to listen to our clients needs and problem solve, how invested we are in creating a perfect event for each client, and our client relationship approach- mutual respect and working together to create an unforgettable day. We strive to keep a pleasant and communicative experience by following our clearly defined planning process. We plan a select number of events and weddings a year which allows us to provide exceptional service while also allowing us to be responsive, efficient, creative, and able to focus on every single detail for each client.

What can you expect when working with us? Excellence, quality, passion, organization, professionalism, creativity, experience, education, laughs and a planner who will always go above and beyond for YOU!


Hi I’m Candice and I am obsessed with candles, custom details and beautiful floral. I also love yummy smoothies and juices, tropical places, and giving back to my community. Each of my clients’ visions are different, so I execute a wide range of design styles and do everything from minimalist modern design to events that are super glam. Although no two events I plan are ever alike, they will always have three CM Event & Design Elements- custom designed, packed with details, and executed to perfection.

How did CM Events & Design begin? I consider myself a visionary, I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit, experienced in project management and since a child I have always been inspired by fashion, interior design and culture.  After constantly hearing how creative and detailed I am, I decided I needed to take things more seriously with my God given gifts and finally do what I LOVE. That eventually led me to combining everything I do design related plus my great organization + management skills to start CM Events & Design | [C]HIC + [M]ODERN EVENTS.

I wear several creative hats and balancing life as a wife and career woman can be challenging, but I'm excited everyday when I think about the decision I made to start CM Events. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to assist others in the planning of life celebrations, and even gaining lifetime friends in the process. When I'm not planning or designing, you can find me shopping for shoes or in the gym. I'm a health and fitness nut, but I am  also a huge foodie. I love to travel,  am always looking to add more stamps to my passport, and will happily go wherever your event takes me. Faith, family, and happy clients are everything.
