This review is for Kaitlin Przezdziecki and the full planning package at Cherry Blossom Events. I honestly cannot say enough amazing things about Kaitlin and the wonderful job that she did in planning our wedding. Like many DC brides, I have a hectic job and knew from the beginning that there was no way I could put together a wedding without a professional coordinator who knew the city and had relationships with local vendors. My husband and I met with several other highly regarded planners here in town, but were immediately impressed with Kaitlin's expertise, kindness and value.

From the beginning we knew we'd made the right choice. She assisted us with everything from finding the location, to vendor recommendations, to transportation and logistics, while also making some wonderful creative suggestions along the way. As someone who had a vision of what I wanted (but not always the logistical know-how to put it together), Kaitlin was invaluable in helping me bring my vision to life.

She also worked closely with my mother-in-law to put together a large number of welcome boxes for our out of town guests - even stuffing them and working directly with the hotel to ensure correct delivery. What's more, she assisted with coordinating and planning the rehearsal dinner and a large welcome cocktail reception the night before the wedding - both of which were amazing events!

The week leading up to the wedding was incredibly easy knowing that Kaitlin had everything under control, and the wedding morning could not have been more calm - which was such a huge gift because it allowed me to enjoy the moment rather than having to stress about minor, last minute details.

My husband and I truly cannot thank Kaitlin and Cherry Blossom Events enough for putting together such a wonderful event! I highly recommend them to any couple looking to get married in the DC area!

This review is for Alex Pare and Cherry Blossom Events. My daughter hired Alex to help her plan her wedding. I live out of town and are not familiar with any of the local vendors. We hired Alex for the Full Planning Package. Working with Alex was a dream. She was professional, creative and a stickler for details in creating a dream wedding for my daughter and son-in-law. Her recommendations for the selection of all the vendors were perfect. She coordinated every aspect of the wedding and took all the stress away from us. We knew we could thoroughly enjoy the actual wedding because Alex was there behind the scenes handling the entire party. The band (Black Tie) was phenomenal. The flowers (Toulies en Fleur) and the draping (Elegant Momentz by Kathleen) were exquisite. The room looked like a fairy tale. Even the tent for the cocktail hour was elegant (I never expected that). Alex handled the hotel blocks and the after party. After the wedding, she brought the centerpieces in her own car to the hotel so they would be there for the brunch the next morning making that room look beautiful. Working with her exceeded both mine and my daughter's expectations. I would 100% recommend Alex Pare and Cherry Blossom Events and if I was every planning a party in the DC area again I would without reservations use them again. All I can say to Alex and her team is thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Kaitlin was the perfect choice for a wedding planner for my daughter's wedding! As a mother of the bride who lived a thousand miles away from D.C., and my daughter, the bride in D. C. who had almost no time for planning due to work/school/other responsibilities, Kaitlin was just what we needed. She was always helpful, took initiative in keeping us on track, and had great ideas when we needed them. And she took our ideas and made them a reality. Her vendor contacts and suggestions were always right on track (we had the partial planning contract). She was calm, prompt, and understanding. I am normally a DIY'er, but Kaitlin was everything I couldn't be in this long distance planning process, and worth every bit of the expense. I had interviewed another planner before Kaitlin, but once both my daughter & I had talked to her we both felt so comfortable with her and confident in her skills it was an easy choice, and absolutely the best one.

I simply cannot say enough good things about Kaitlin and the whole team at Cherry Blossom Events. As a highly organized person who does event planning as part of my job, I had a hard time convincing myself it was necessary to get a month-of coordinator, but I could not have been happier with our decision to hire. Kaitlin came to my office building to meet with me more than a month out, organized all of my contracts, helped me find a new makeup stylist when my originally-hired person disappeared at the last minute, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. When I had no one local to learn my dress bustle, she was glad to come to my final fitting and do my bustle on the wedding day.

When it came to the wedding weekend, I was completely at ease knowing that Kaitlin would take care of everything. On the Thursday before my wedding she came to my house to pick up all of our paper products, and we did not have to give any of it a second thought for the entire weekend. Our escort cards, table settings, dessert display - everything looked absolutely beautiful, and she worked with the caterer, florist, and all the other vendors to make sure everything ran perfectly. Our wedding was absurdly smooth and seamless, and it allowed me to relax and have a blast celebrating without giving a moment's thought to any of the details. Our family and friends cannot stop raving about how flawlessly everything was executed and how at ease I was throughout the wedding weekend.

If you're on the fence about hiring a month-of coordinator, do not spend another second debating it - it is worth every last penny (and then some) to allow you to fully enjoy the wedding that you've put so much time and effort into. If I was allowed to give more than 5 stars to Cherry Blossom Events, I would!

If it weren't for Kaitlin Prezdziecki (pronounced pres-jet-ski), we wouldn't have managed to have a wedding celebration, or at least not one that ran smoothly. Before Kaitlin we had booked a venue and catering; we really had gotten little else done. We called upon Kaitlin with maybe 4 months lead time, and she immediately jumped in and got us organized. She did a wonderful job of prioritizing the things we needed to decide and made sure we had a manageable number of options from which to decide (both of us work as lawyers, so we have long hours at work and can be hard to pin down). As a result, we never felt overwhelmed; whether it was trying to decide upon our service music and musicians or the band for the reception or choosing table linens (given our numbers, we had guests in two different rooms, each of which benefited from a different set of linens), Kaitlin spent time winnowing out things we wouldn't like so that our choices were simpler.
In addition to being very well organized and upbeat, we appreciated that Kaitlin wasn't trying to impose upon our wedding her idea of what it should look like; instead, she tried to work with us to find things we would like, while offering gentle direction. She did a great job, in particular, in helping us with the design of the invitation. She also was critical in the working with the florist to produce some really impressive decorations, and she was very good in identifying as options things that many people do (for example, we decided against offering some sort of favor, but she did note what options there were for us to consider first).
On the day of the wedding, Kaitlin was a big help. She arranged for our luggage to get to our hotel -- which is a bigger benefit than might otherwise appear given that we have two young kids (3 and 4). Once at the venue, she and a colleague made sure that things ran smoothly. Both were extremely unobtrusive while overseeing the event and yet still nicely dressed.

I can't speak highly enough about Kaitlin or Cherry Blossom. I used them for "Day-of" wedding coordination, so Kaitlin got involved in wedding planning about six weeks before my wedding. She was incredibly organized from day one, emailing before the six week mark to ask for all the contracts with my vendors so that she could start reaching out to them. She took care of everything with the vendors and was so good about reminding me of the tasks I needed to complete myself. She was always quick to respond to my questions, and even helped me make some of the decisions involving the event details (any bride knows that there are a million decisions to make- sometimes you need an expert to help you make some of the decisions!)

The day of the wedding she was absolutely awesome. She was on top of everything, and incredibly efficient and organized throughout every step. The timeline she had drafted weeks before the event went off smoothly and without a hitch. Everyone kept telling me how calm I was the day of the wedding and in the days leading up to the wedding- I credit Kaitlin for my calmness because I knew everything would work out perfectly with Kaitlin being so organized and on top of everything!

We decided to hire Cherry Blossom Events because my daughter (the Bride) was very busy with work & I live out of town. Kaitlin was our wedding planner & she was worth every penny spent! It was wonderful having a competent, resourceful & efficient event planner that was familiar with Annapolis & local vendors. Not only did she aid in selecting the vendors that were the best match, she was always available to answer questions & helped us work through every detail. I found it very helpful that she contacted the vendors & remained in touch with each one throughout the process. Timelines were provided as well as payment schedules. No complaints... only compliments!

A few months before our wedding, my wife and I were debating whether or not to spend the money to hire a wedding planner or to try to run things ourselves. We decided to go with Cherry Blossom and hired Kaitlin Przezdziecki as our planner. It might have been the best money we spent on the whole event.

The best thing I can say is that on the day of the event there was not a single "headache" that made it to our radar. I had been somewhat apprehensive because as you'll learn, a wedding has a lot of moving parts and different vendors interacting, and I was worried that a slight hiccup could throw everything off and cause us stress on our wedding day. As it turns out, everything went off without a hitch, or at least if there were any issues, we didn't have to worry about them.

Kaitlin put together the entire timeline for our wedding and guided the process from beginning to end, right down to the end of the night when leftover food, decorations and gifts all made it into the correct cars without any of our guests having to step away from the reception to deal with it. She freed us and our families up to simply enjoy the day and the event and could not have done a better job.
