“The dream team!! Amazing people whose main objective is to make sure you are 100% satisfied.”
They did not disappoint! Our wedding was an absolute dream. I felt confident I could trust them in bringing our vision to life and they went above and beyond. Not only do they have an eye for design, but they were so professional and handled everything with ease. I felt completely relaxed on my wedding day all thanks to them! They helped me with every step in the planning process and I am extremely grateful for them. I would recommend them if you want a unique and one-of-a-kind destination or local wedding!

“The level of detail in the planning and vision was superb. Highly recommended for a refined, modern aesthetic with an easy-to-work with team!”
Absolutely chic, stunning, elevated design from a kind and professional team. Everything was organized and handled well in-advance. The communication and organization was wonderful--we had timelines, checklists, regular calls, etc. that made everything feel orderly and taken care of.

“At the end of the night, I vividly remember taking in all of the beauty around me and I couldn’t believe how PERFECT the venue looked. It was above and beyond what I could have envisioned. ”
Candice made the process as seamless as possible. As a bride that wants to control every detail but is also indecisive Candice was able to guide me in the right direction and ensure a cohesive overall look of the event. More importantly, I never had to wait more than a few hours to hear back from her and we spent countless hours on the phone going over details. CM Events made sure the wedding day went smoothly as well- I was able to fully enjoy myself and didn’t have to worry about a thing. My wedding truly felt like a dream and I can’t thank CM events enough for making that happen!

“Your ability to bring something from a nebulous state to something concrete is a spiritual gift. ”
Thank you Candice for manifesting my dream. That takes skill, flexibility, precision, and sensitivity. You and your team are ah-mazing. Your ability to bring something from a nebulous state to something concrete is a spiritual gift. I am sure you know this and are nurturing it. Protect and showcase it strategically.

“Candice was exceptional in planning our wedding. She made us feel comfortable and instantly made a connection with us. ”
Candice has so many connections. Candice and her team were so attentive to our needs and were always a look away. They handled everything professionally and the day was beyond anything we could have imagined! An added plus is that Candice has an amazing eye for design. Half the time I let Candice take the reins and make decisions for me and everything turned out beautifully. Thank you for everything you have done for us. We can't thank you enough!!!
