Colleen and her team were absolute saviors! When we booked our venue, we were told that we didn't need to hire an outside DOC because the venue team handled everything. Throughout our two year engagement this was the assumption we were working off of. Three weeks before our wedding the venue asked me for my planner's info. That's how I found out there wasn't ANYBODY that was really running the show. In a panic, I found Colleen. Despite the fact that we were three weeks away, she repeatedly told me to take my time before hiring her to really think it through; she didn't want me to feel pressured to make a spur of the moment decision. After two days, one long phone call and an in person meeting she was booked, and I could not be happier with my decision. She had one other wedding the day of ours, so she immediately brought Nicole on board to execute everything on the day of and to be involved in all of our discussions leading up to the wedding. I cannot accurately put into words how much these two women saved our day. Throughout the final days of planning, Colleen went above and beyond to make sure every details was accounted for. She offered to pick up our napkins for us, and when she got there they were the wrong color. I told her not to worry about it, they would have to be close enough and I'd get over it. She didn't tell me until after she'd done it (because she knew I'd tell her not to), but she drove an hour away to get napkins that were the correct color. Who does that?! Nicole took over running our rehearsal, which went very smoothly thanks to her, and making sure everything was going exactly as planned on the day of. If there were any bumps in the road during our wedding, I had no idea. That's the mark of a great planner. I could go on and on, but in short - the ONLY thing I regret about hiring Colleen and Nicole is that we didn't do it sooner. I would have loved to spend my entire two years of planning with their help, guidance, and friendship.

Colleen is simply the best. From the very first conversation we had on the phone until the wedding weekend, she was a pleasure to work with. After attempting to plan the wedding from California, with help from my family in Richmond, we quickly realized we were going to need help pulling it all together. Colleen immediately put me (and my mom) at ease. Colleen is incredibly well-connected, knows all of the vendors, and has a wealth of experience in the wedding industry. She is no nonsense, and makes herself available at crazy hours of the day/night, which was huge since I was on the west coast. Our wedding day/weekend wouldn't have been possible without her tireless efforts througout the entire process. Colleen has a gift for taking on what seems like a big challenge (to the bride!), and in seconds, resolving it and improving upon the finished product. Anyone who gets to work with her should consider themselves lucky. She is committed to making each wedding total perfection, and we got to see that first hand. I know we'll be talking about Colleen Cook for years to come, and anyone who asks for a recommendation for a Virginia wedding will get our full endorsement of CCS Events.

Our wedding would NOT have been the same without CCS events. Planning a wedding involved more details that I ever cared to spend time googling or doing myself (and when I did start google tips of how to do wedding planning, it just made me more stressed). She made the planning process as easy as possible and I felt like I was involved as much as I wanted to be, when I wanted to be. I told her my vision for the day and our budget, and she was able to navigate us to the big day easily by fitting all of the many decisions we had to make into a perfect manageable timeline. I have a busy job and was nervous that I would not be able to coordinate schedules with a planner, but CCS events made sure that they could fit me in whenever I had a free window. I appreciated her knowledge of other vendors in the business, and truly felt like she gave me great insight into my options so that I could make the ultimate decision for our big day. LASTLY - her day of coordination help was amazing and I do not know how we could have pulled off the day without her. I decided last minute that I wanted guest favors but had no time to pick them up...so Colleen did. I had plans for an outdoor wedding during one of the rainiest weekends of the year which changed most of our set-up plans but CCS events went above and beyond to make all of the necessary changes for a smooth day for the bride, the groom, our families the wedding party, as well as our guests. She even got my mothers car at the end of the night and drove it (Valet style) from the parking lot to the venue doorstep so that she did not have to walk in the torrential downpour after our wedding night. My husband (!!) and I are very grateful to have had CCS events as our planner and would recommend her to anyone at ANY stage of the wedding process to help make your big day be the most fun you have ever had

Colleen was so helpful!!! We told her what price range we were trying to stay in and the feel/vibe we wanted for the wedding and she was able to suggest vendors based on that. She made it super easy by setting up the vendor appointments and always having helpful suggestions. Nicole was our day of coordinator and she was amazing! She was always there when I needed something and everything went very smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding experience and it was all thanks to CCS Events!

I just got married this past Saturday, and am SO happy that I booked Colleen of CCS events. Colleen gave me so many useful tips to plan this wedding and helped me every step of the way. I was able to use so much of her beautiful decor and felt so comfortable leaving my wedding in her hands. She made my day so special and was my shoulder to lean on when I was stressed and was my ear to complain to when I was upset about something at the wedding. We ran out of liquor about 2 hours into the event, and Colleen sent an assistant out to get it and the bars were able to make drinks again within about 15 minutes. I would highly highly recommend Colleen. She has a huge personality that makes you feel very comfortable on the day of and she is very very affordable!

Colleen is the best wedding planner in Richmond by FAR! If you're looking for a wedding coordinator... look no further. Being a very nervous/anxious bride, she totally put my mind and worries at ease. She has years of experience, lots of connections (she practically knows everyone!), and is very organized. Needless to say, the wedding day was more perfect than I could have ever dreamed of... thanks to Colleen and her team! I highly recommend CCS Events!

Colleen is the best! We used her for Day of services, but she provided much more. She designed our floorplan, created our timeline, contacted all vendors, rehearsal, made the day of perfect, and lots more! She knows the industry and best practices and answers any questions you think of (or don't think of). We definitely could not have done it without her!!

Hiring Colleen was the best decision we made! My mom and I were so overwhelmed and indecisive in the first month or so and decided to find a planner so we could make it through the planning alive. Colleen clicked so well with us -- she doesn't sugar coat things and will hook you up with all the details. When she tells you to do your homework.. do it! It helps the planning process move along quickly. The timeline she put together was incredible.. every detail of your day will be planned so you can RELAX. We didn't worry about an ounce of anything on the wedding day except for having fun... Colleen keeps things moving and if there's an issue, I promise you won't know it ever happened until after the fact. We can't say enough fabulous things about Colleen and CCS Events.. she knows her stuff. Thank you, Colleen, for making our day way more than we could've imagined!

Hired CCS for day of. Most of our vendors were in place, but I was concerned about final logistics. I contacted Colleen 6 weeks out and was instantly confident in her ability. We met regularly, and she took over herding all vendors. Colleen made it easy and FUN. In the long run, we saved time and money. She got our vision and budget and merged them into a fabulous scheme, complete with timelines and layouts. She advised me which add-ons were unnecessary. She offered use of her props so we didn't have to purchase/rent. We were so calm going into our wedding week.
Monday prior to the (outdoor) wedding, it had been raining for a week with no end in sight and a hurricane was forecast. My family was at a loss for what to do. Colleen researched and explain our options. She secured a new tent with walls and negotiated with the venue to get it installed early to protect the ground from further saturation. She addressed the caterer's needs so they serve dinner for 111 people outside. She had heaters and generators on stand by. CCS's job quadrupled because of the conditions and extra work required to pull off a cocktail party, ceremony, seated dinner, and live band ... all outdoors. Nicole was amazing and took care of everything behind the scenes. I never worried about the logistics that day, because she was always ahead of me. I have heard nothing but the highest compliments at how we were able to pull off an outdoor wedding in those conditions - and make it charming, sophisticated, and fun.
NO WAY we could have executed it ourselves, even on a sunny day. When it looked all doom and gloom, we probably would have cancelled the party and gone to the courthouse. In the end, our wedding was oh so much better than we ever dreamed. It was full of rain and mud and magic -- and I wouldn't have it any other way. The perfection was in the beautiful spirit, which we had because of Colleen and Nicole and CCS!

The three things you need to know about Colleen Cook at CCS Events: 1) She is a master of her craft and can create a wedding that’s exactly what you wanted but also a thousand times better than you could have dreamed. 2) She will be your most calming and reassuring presence during all the stressful planning times. 3) She and her team ARE who you want to hire to plan your wedding, and no, it isn’t too late to call, not even if you only have a month or less left (like we did)! My now husband and I, like I’m sure a ton of couples do, had WAY too much on our plates while we were trying to plan our wedding. Not only was I not enjoying wedding planning, I was seriously hating it. We had all these pieces but I had no idea how to put them together. We chose a lot of things to please my mom, our families, and our guests, and I was feeling like we were going to be attending someone else’s wedding. I got in touch with Colleen a month before the big day. From the first meeting, I could tell that she had “the vision”. She knew what we wanted and she could make it happen. Colleen took a huge weight off my shoulders, and I finally started looking forward to our wedding because I wasn’t bogged down with worrying about it. She was worth every single penny, and I only wish we would have found her sooner. I could write pages about all the things Colleen did for us that we could have never done ourselves, including finding amazing replacements for the florist and makeup artist (that we booked before finding her) when they fell through 2 weeks before our wedding. I would encourage anyone reading this to look no further and call her. She does beautiful work, and you will be blown away by the pinterest perfect, and very personal, space she creates for you. But more than that, she will keep you calm and sane, and you’ll feel like you have a real friend working with you to create the day that will hold so many wonderful memories for you and your husband.
