We are the Cherry Blossom Ninjas and we would love to help plan your big day. We specialize in day-of coordination, partial planning, and LGBT weddings in the Hampton Roads area and have the laugh lines to prove it. From fine tuning logistics to pinning boutonnieres, we will organize the tiniest of details.

What's included? At a minimum we take care of the vendor overview, put together an OCD timeline, line up the processional grand entrance, draw floor plans of every shape and size (hello aerial view), write out a style sheet, and offer more checklists than you knew ever existed.

Crystal is vibrant, flexible, knowledgable, well organized and accommodating. I seriously cannot say enough amazing things about working with Cherry Blossom Planning Factory. I had an 140 person wedding and hired Crystal for Day-of Coordination. Crystal answered my questions promptly and gave me options to make sure that my "wedding vision" came to life. Her outgoing personality was contagious. No matter how stressed I was, she had a way of making me feel like everything would be okay because she would make sure it would be. Her planning assistants, or wedding ninjas, were PERFECT on my wedding day. They were everywhere and no where at the same time. When I realized there was only one bartender at the bar instead of two - Cherry Blossom Factory took care of it. When the venue coordinator was trying to change the timeline the week before the wedding - Crystal made sure to clarify with the vendor how I wanted my day to go. My only regret is that I did not have Crystal throughout my entire wedding process from beginning to end. She's amazing!

We booked Crystal and her ninjas for Day of Coordination. Even though she didn't have to, Crystal was so helpful whenever I had questions about vendors, planning the day, decorations, etc., prior to the actual day. She was so responsive and helpful. I don't know what I would have done without her!! I highly recommend them. It was so nice to have someone take care of the details of the weekend so I just got to soak it all in!

I was feeling stressed out and over wedding planning about three months shy of the big day. Crystal, the Head Planning Ninja at Cherry Blossom, helped me to pull a 180°. She was calm and reassured me that I was doing the right things and that there was no need to be stressed. She sat down and gave me a list of what I needed to accomplish by what dates. She helped me organize my next few months into checklists and got me back on track. She gave me the confidence to make decisions for what I wanted to do, not what others suggested I do. She was very funny, friendly, and kind. She was also real with me when I needed her to be, which was very much appreciated. Planning our wedding with Cherry Blossom was truly the best experience I could have. Crystal kept up with me through e-mails, over the phone, and through coffee shop dates. She and another of her Planning Ninjas ran my rehearsal dinner and it went off without a hitch, everyone in the wedding party knew what they would be doing for the ceremony, as well as where and when they needed to be there. Crystal is an excellent organizer and communicator. On the big day, she was busy working with my vendors and setting up, checking in with me on occasion to make sure everything was okay. But the day went off without a single snag or hang up. All the planning, all the meetings... they were well worth it for what was truly the most perfect day. Crystal is incredible at what she does, I am so thankful to have met her and to have had her guidance through everything.

I would give Crystal and her team 100 stars, 1000 tons of confetti and glitter, and all the rainbows in the world if I could! I can't say enough amazing things about them. Crystal is responsive, sensitive, organized, creative, bubbly, and a joy to be around - everything EVERY bride needs when planning a wedding. She was always available to answer questions and she was very flexible with meeting times & locations as well as changes leading up to the wedding. She was seriously my lifesaver the week of my wedding as Hurricane Matthew was threatening our area and even though I had an indoor wedding, we had to devise a back up plan in case my venue was shut down. Crystal was willing to run block for me, calling vendors and sorting out details. She was my rock during a pretty stressful time and I can't thank her enough! She also helped in picking up some items the week of the wedding which was a huge help! The day of the wedding was everything I wanted BECAUSE of Crystal, Katrina, and Amanda (and any other behind the scenes ninjas I may not have seen). EVERY BRIDE NEEDS A DAY OF COORDINATOR AND IF YOU WANT THE BEST, GO WITH CHERRY BLOSSOM! I was truly able to enjoy every moment of the day because the ninjas took care of everything. The detailed timeline that Crystal creates is a huge help to all of the vendors and while my mind was drawing blanks on what came next despite going over it a gazillion times prior to the day, Crystal and the ninjas were always on top of it. You will not regret having them by your side!

I hated the entire idea of having a wedding. As in was dragged (with much glitter, sweets, and good cheer by cherry blossom and crystal specifically) through the process for over a year. Crystal was amazing. When I was repeatedly blasé about all the events or sour about having to have a wedding at all (#families, #husband, #excusetoseedistantfriends) she reminded me why we originally wanted it (aforementioned hashtags) which brought round a lot of perspective. She involved my husband to be, maid of honor, and friends to keep it real and even picked vendors based on my personality, what I thought I wanted and budget. Up to the day before I was anxious and concerned (despite knowing she was spot on with literally EVERY vendor/venue). Then on wedding day I arrived and was blown away. As in stopped to catch my breath as I waited to join the ceremony in the reception hall which glittered straight out of my dreams. The entire day from wake up --> makeup --> sobbing parents giving me away ---> hilarious toasts --> boogie time and even the packed snacks as we made our getaway was phenomenal. Not to mention her Mary Poppins esque kit of "we can fix everything!!" Which came in really handy when a bridesmaid tried recreating Janet Jackson's super bowl wardrobe malfunction. Crystal was an absolute pleasure to work with over the entire course of wedding planning and brought about a perfect day for my family, friends and happily my (now) husband and I. We imagined weddings as stuffy affairs of pink chintz, lace, and awkward interactions. Instead, I can honestly look back and say it was the most memorable day of my life and a strong contender for the fondest day I've ever experienced. I cannot imagine it having been what it was without her. Would do it all again!!!

I’m so thankful we decided to go with Cherry Blossom Planning. Crystal and Katrina made sure everything on our wedding day flowed perfectly. Before hiring them, I had no idea all of the things I could have missed in the planning process. They both always replied to questions within minutes of emailing or texting which is impressive haha. They had great ideas and really made what we wanted come to life. They went above and beyond with everything! I didn’t have to worry about anything other than having fun on our wedding day thanks to them!

Gosh, what can I say about Crystal and her team of ninjas? From day one, I knew that Cherry Blossom was the right team to help me plan my wedding. Their genuine excitement and care for every single detail of our wedding, really helped to push us through the stress of planning a wedding to the point where we were actually enjoying the day filled with vendor meetings.

One of the most helpful things that Cherry Blossom did was to really narrow down the number of vendors we had to meet with. Let's face it there are many caterers, florists, photographers, and DJs out there and it can be really difficult to pick, "the best" one. Cherry Blossom took a look at our personality and our ideas for the perfect wedding, and picked the vendors that they felt would meet those expectations. None of the vendors let us down!

In addition to the pre-wedding planning, Crystal and her team were FANTASTIC on the day of our wedding. I don't know how we would've gotten through the day without them. I had a ninja, Katrina, specifically assigned to me to make sure I had everything I needed, and I put that poor girl to work. The top hook of my dress decided to pop on the ride over from the ceremony to our reception. Katrina walked around with about a million safety pins to re-pin my dress every which way to make sure I wasn't dancing my first dance topless. She was a lifesaver!

Cherry Blossom is the best wedding planning crew out there. They are so professional, they know what they are doing, and I would trust them with anything, seriously! Any crisis you can imagine I'm sure they are ready for it, and any specific dream décor for your wedding I'm sure they can find for you. They were exceptional and really made our wedding the wedding of our dreams.

Thanks Cherry Blossom!

Crystal & her team were ESSENTIAL to my entire planning process & were absolute life-savers the week & day of my wedding!

This team is fun, upbeat/friendly, organized, professional and they're crazy good at their jobs- I've recommended them to all of my friends getting married in the future!
