I serendipitously came across Cherry Blossom Events through Alison Golt.

I was living in Boston and needed someone that would be able to work with an out-of state bride who was planning 4 events over a span of 3 days in the MD/VA area. Before I decided to have her on my team, we exchanged two phone calls, a few emails back and forth, and a meeting with my immediate family. As a Pakistani affair - it's not only about the bride and groom, it's about the family. Through it all Alison was patient, professional, and receptive.

We contracted her and had absolutely no regrets. Eventhough this was her first wedding as an official event coordinator no one would have been the wiser. She was at all of our walk-throughs, knew all the contracts, and took over communication between myself and the vendors about a month prior. She was able to work with my limited time schedule as I was only in Maryland a few times throughout the process - even meeting on a Sunday while I was simultaneously doing a make-up trial and my whole family was making our favors.

She coordinated 17 vendors at 4 different venues (and I may be missing some) and handled emails and meetings with grace. No small feat. Besides being awesome, she truly went above and beyond. During one of the events we had a major issue come up. As we were leaving a few days later for our honeymoon - we knew we would not have time to address it. Despite our events being done, Alison reached out to the multiple vendors involved and was able to have everyone come to an agreement without having to include me at all.

We consider her part of our family and I know she will continue to make many beautiful memories for all her clients.

Alex and her team at Cherry Blossom Events are everything I wanted and needed in a wedding planner! From start to finish, they were responsive, timely, patient, and just downright experts in making sure that every aspect of our wedding went off well.
For every vendor they helped us with, they gave us a handful of options within our budget and within our design ideas, allowed us to narrow down the choices and negotiated our meeting with the vendors. They asked the vendors the questions we didn’t know to ask, and went to bat for us every time there was something we really wanted or were unsure of with a vendor. Even for those vendors that they didn’t negotiate for us, they would always provide us with a starter list of options or vendors they knew of so we could at least start off on the right foot. It was like having someone read these types of reviews – for you!
They provided a day-of timeline that pulled in every detail of the wedding. For the day of, they added in extra help to make sure our transportation from multiple hotels went off without any problems and coordinated with every vendor, even the ones they didn’t negotiate for us. We didn’t have a typical ceremony so there was no officiant to run the rehearsal. Alex and the team swooped right in and got everyone organized, kept unruly groomsmen in line and got us in and out of rehearsal on time and with three run-throughs done.
They handled every last minute issue like it was no problem and kept the entire day going. I truly felt like I enjoyed my wedding day, didn’t have to worry about what was going on with the DJ, the caterer, the transportation, nothing. Your wedding day, is YOUR wedding day. Alex and her team provide a service that is PRICELESS – no hassle, no worries, and a stress free wedding day. I am forever grateful for their work.

We purchased the “Month of Coordination” package from Cherry Blossom Events and Elizabeth Leibundguth was our planner. I cannot begin to describe the professionalism and expertise with which Elizabeth handled our daughter’s wedding. I originally did not think we needed a “day of” coordinator, since we had already done most of the planning and had confidence in our vendors, but my husband suggested that it might be a good idea “just in case”. I am so glad we decided to use a coordinator and even more thankful that we found Elizabeth!
Six weeks before the wedding, Elizabeth contacted us to get the contracts for all our vendors. She put together a timeline for the weekend’s events, including the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, the wedding day and the farewell brunch. She confirmed all details with our vendors, which took a load off my shoulders during the weeks leading up to the wedding. Midday on the day before the wedding, she met with our venue’s catering director and us to go over all the details and returned that evening for the rehearsal. On my daughter’s wedding day, she and her assistant set up the escort cards, put up our “Welcome” sign and made sure that the ceremony, cocktail reception and the dinner/dancing rooms were set up and ready to go. She brought the bouquets and boutonnieres to the bridal party suites and functioned as a “gopher”, running items from one suite to the other among other things. She worked with the photographer to keep everyone on schedule and made sure the bridal party and parents were where they needed to be at all times. She stayed until the very end and made sure that everything flowed smoothly. She also took care of handing out our final payments and distributed gratuities at the end of the evening. After the party was over, she brought the top tier of the wedding cake, wedding gifts and several other items from the party to the bridal suite.
If I need a coordinator again, I would not hesitate to use Elizabeth!

We chose the month out planning and worked with Elizabeth...and loved her! We had no idea how clutch it was going to be to have someone take over all the final arrangements and day of organizing. Starting six weeks out, Elizabeth began emailing with questions and got all of our vendor information. She reached out to all of them and took full control - all while still keeping us in the loop of conversations that were being had. As we approached the day, she made the timeline (an item I never would have thought to make) and arranged final walk-throughs. It was amazing having someone to take all the information out of my head and create a fully formed event. From the rehearsal on she was in full control making sure everything was happening on time and making sure my husband and I and everyone was where they needed to be. Her and her assistant also set everything up the day of - we left them with all the table decor and items and they laid it out beautifully! She was invaluable to those final weeks and day of and took so much stress away from us and our families so that we could just focus on enjoying the day! Highly recommend Elizabeth and Cherry Blossom Events!

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.
