Congratulations on your Engagement! This is a happy and romantic time in your life, and one of the most memorable. Planning your wedding should be a wonderful journey with a luxurious reward at the end and not some painful process that you must endure in order to achieve the wedding of your dreams. With our more than half a decade experience, Carpe Diem can assist you through your journey like a tour guide in a foreign land. We can make your journey through an unfamiliar place feel like somewhere you’ve been before. We can take your childhood fantasy wedding and make it a beautiful reality.

“What about the Groom?” We do not forget about the groom. We embrace the idea that grooms have their dream weddings also, and we believe that two ideas are always better than one. We help the groom and bride bring their ideas together to form the most memorable wedding ever!

A fabulous wedding planner will always think of their client first and that means always thinking about their budget. It is our responsibility and obligation to always negotiate fees, organize and maintain details of the wedding, and always find the best of what the client is requesting. It is also our responsibility to keep the client updated of important dates and the current status of wedding plans.

From traditional weddings to unique weddings we make sure that your personal style is intertwined through-out the design of your wedding. After all, each event should be a reflection of the bride and groom and not the wedding planner. You want your wedding memories worth sharing with friends and family. If you can dream it we can achieve it or die trying.

If you want a wedding that flows like a melody in a love song, Carpe Diem is the perfect choice to help you plan your big day!

Let us assist in seizing the day for you, your groom and your guests!

Slomique and Alice at Carpe Diem Special Events and Designs were a pleasure to work with - always helpful, professional, and really worked with our budget. I'll be honest, my wife and I were pretty lazy when it came to wedding planning but they really kept us on task and in the end we were both extremely happy with how everything turned out. Everything was great - the whole day went smoothly and everyone at our wedding kept saying how great it looked (all thanks to Slomique and Alice!). We would definitely recommend them to everyone! One of my friends was unhappy with her wedding planner so she fired hers; I recommended Carpe Diem and her and her fiancé ended up hiring them. I'm sure she will enjoy working with Slomique and Alice as much as we did.

It was a pleasure to work with Slomique and Alice for our wedding. With regard to design, Slomique was amazing – she is so creative and really understood the overall feel we wanted for our wedding. She took our thoughts and ideas and turned them into a reality (working late into the evening on the days before our wedding to make sure everything was perfect). Alice handled the logistical details and made sure the wedding went off without any issues or problems (and if there were any issues or problems on the day of our wedding, we certainly didn’t know about it!). Both Slomique and Alice were very responsive to e-mails, text messages and phone calls, which we appreciated. We did not always have the most flexible schedule and Slomique and Alice would work with us to accommodate our schedule, whether that be a meeting at our home, a nearby Starbucks or at their offices late on a weekday evening. We are so glad that we hired Carpe Diem Special Events to plan our wedding. With the help of the ladies from Carpe Diem Special Events, my husband and I were able to enjoy our wedding day, without the stress of trying to coordinate vendors, make sure things were running on time, etc. Our wedding day was amazing thanks to the ladies of Carpe Diem Special Events!

The ladies of Carpe Diem Events Alice & Slomique made my dream wedding day come true.
During the planning I was residing in Boston, MA and planning a wedding in Napa, CA.
I was nervous planning the wedding from a different state and felt overwhelmed but with these ladies they made the whole experience one of the happiest time in my life.

They created a wedding that truly reflected our personalities and without Alice & Slomique I can honestly say this day would not have happen. I would highly recommend Carpe Diem
and will always be grateful to them. Thank You again and again!!

After reading the 5 star reviews for this company, and highly recommended by the Westin Hotel, I hired Carpe Diem for my rehearsal and day of planning. I must start by saying Slomique is very nice, professional, and she does beautiful work. However her assistant Alice, who was the one I worked with most of the time, was tacky, unprofessional, and I found her offensive. I'm not one to write a review about anyone but she left an awful taste in my mouth . Here is my experience: At my tasting , we met with Alice and when discussing our relationship and how long my fiance and I had been together (which was 10 years) she said she" would decline if her boyfriend asked her to marry her after that long". Clearly rude and inappropriate. She was also not prompt on returning calls, texts, or emails. On the day of my wedding, my family provided food and drinks for the grooms room and brides room. We needed to change rooms, and Alice told me and my bridal party that she would have all the food transferred to our room. Come to find out the room service attendant said Alice told him to throw it away. Then the florist confirmed she left all the boutineres & corsages with the planners. I didn't even find out until receiving my wedding photos, but my in laws pointed out that they were the only ones who didn't receive any. Lastly my bridesmaid was in our suite gathering her things, Alice came in by herself, asked where my curling iron was , told my bridesmaid i wanted to use it & she would plug it in for me. My bridesmaid gets it for her, and goes to ask Alice if I would like the hairspray and she WAS USING MY CURLING IRON WHILE CHATTING ON THE PHONE! I spoke with Slomique the next day and informed her of what happened. She was very apologetic. Alice called a week later apologizing for throwing the food out, but avoided the curling iron situation like it never happened. She sent me a $25 gift card to Subway for my flower girls. Wow thanks Alice. I'm so insulted.

Carpe Diem made my wedding spectacular. Slomique and Alice made the whole wedding planning experience stress free and enjoyable. Even when I had to unexpectedly reduce my wedding budget, they worked magic with the style and decor of the wedding. It was exactly what my husband and I envisioned! I would definitely recommend Carpe Diem for your
next event!

My husband and I were so lucky to have worked with Alice and Slomique, they made our dreams come true by having an AMAZING wedding. Slomique was so into detail from our wedding invitations, to every little detail from the reception. We loved how everything flowed together, the best part was not having to worry about anything on the day of the wedding. One of our favorite moment was seeing the reception room before any of our guests, it was the MOST beautiful room, very romantic and intimitate. We have nothing but GREAT things to share about these two remarkable ladies and Carpe Diem.

Where to begin? Working with Carpe Diem made the planning part of my wedding so enjoyable! I plan events from the venue side for a living and have worked with Carpe Diem as a vendor so I knew how well they treated both the couple and the other vendors they worked with! I had a vision for the day and as most brides tried to do some things myself to help cut down costs.....after meeting with Slomique she helped transform my vision into a spectacular event!! The only time I lost my emotions that day was when Slomique lead us into the reception room before the guests and it was one of the best moments of the day......to see my vision turned into a reality and how they had added little touches like tying beautiful ribbon around the kids gift boxes...the room was a GLOW with candles and it was all thanks to the details and vision of Carpe Diem. I recommend a wedding planner to all brides I meet at work and if you are lucky enough to work with Carpe Diem.......it will make your wedding truly a day you will never forget!

Slomique and Alice were wonderful to work with! Slomique NAILED the design and decor for our wedding - she gave me everything I wanted and so much more. Our wedding went so smoothly, and things that didn't go perfectly were all out of Carpe Diem's control. I would highly recommend them!
