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.

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!!!

Crystal & her team were ESSENTIAL to my entire planning process & were absolute life-savers the week & day of my wedding! This team seriously does everything; to list a few major items they assist with, CBPF: patiently answers the 3 million questions you have along the way & gives advice when you need it, contacts & organizes all of your vendors, coordinates & creates a schedule for every minute of your weekend from your rehearsal to your wedding departure, collects & stores all of your wedding crafts/goodies, takes ownership for every last minute emergency & detail (ran & got me a steamer ON the way to my venue), manages every minute of your big day (from guiding guests & wedding party to various destinations, taping brides into their dresses (yep...me again), assisting guests- literally anything & everything you need), & even ensures all of your belongings/gifts/scattered items are collected & given to their rightful owners! 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!

We absolutely loved working with Crystal and her ninjas! They were so helpful in getting our destination wedding planned and turned it into everything we had hoped for and more. She was so organized and prompt with her responses. She made the planning part so stress free and fun. We would highly recommend her for anyone who is looking for help planning their wedding. We got several complements about how smoothly everything went. She was always so on top of everything down to the last detail. We had an outdoor ceremony on a very hot day and I mentioned wanting to change my shoes after the ceremony. The ninjas were waiting for us after with my shoes and cold water for the entire bridal party. Throughout the whole wedding they went above and beyond. If your looking for your dream wedding we recommend using Cherry Blossom!

Crystal and crew were amazing! Crystal provided awesome suggestions, was flexible with changes, and helpful in decision making (all while somehow understanding what I was looking for). She and her team also really nailed it on wedding day. Everything went so smoothly, even when they had to dodge wrenches. They can handle anything.

Cherry Blossom is the company you must hire! We had top-notch service and the pricing was affordable! We never once worried about a thing. Crystal even thought of the ring-bearer dogs and provided water and toys for them. She picked up last-minute items from our house and delivered them to the site. She brought back all leftovers and placed them neatly in our house. The refrigerator was filled with nicely packaged leftover food after the reception. Next time I have a big event, I will use Cherry Blossom again.

Crystal surpassed every expectation I ever had of a wedding coordinator, and my expectations were high. I hired Crystal for day-of coordinator services, but we were texting as early as a year before the wedding. She responded quickly and with detail from the very beginning, displaying extremely in-depth knowledge of the industry, providing guidance on other vendors, and keeping track of my every comment so that it could be included in the wedding.

I had initially been concerned that a coordinator might be too in-your-face during the day, but Crystal was legitimately like a magician. My day was surrounded by bridesmaids, family, and friends...but every time I had a question or didn't know was coming next, she would seemingly pop out of nowhere, quickly identify what I needed and provide it, and then disappear again. It almost made me laugh by the last time it happened. How did she know exactly when I needed her? She walked the entire bridal party through exactly what they were supposed to be doing, so there was absolutely no confusion on the day.

People kept asking me how our wedding was so perfect, and my answer has been Crystal. She coordinated with all of the other vendors ahead of time, kept me on schedule (without ever nagging!!), provided every document I needed in an easily accessible format, and even met with me in an emergency on the day before the wedding to completely re-do the seating chart. She was always calm, flexible, and knowledgeable, remembering things that I had forgotten and anticipating our needs. My husband asked after the fact how much we had paid and was shocked that we got the services that we did for the price--and he's frugal! If I had to do the entire thing over again, the first thing I would do before anything else is hire Crystal. Thank you for everything--and thank you to all the wonderful Ninjas!

Crystal is absolutely amazing!! Our May 2016 wedding seriously could not have happened without her. We considered organizing it ourselves and using family and friends to help out, but realized early on that we needed help. Crystal made my concerns and stress points disappear. She is organized, thorough, trustworthy, kind, helpful, timely, and goes above and beyond to make your vision possible. She sent us organized lists (always ahead of time), kept in communications with our vendors (she knows everyone in the area very well), and helped us come up with creative solutions and ideas. If you are planning your wedding in the area, PLEASE call her! She is truly an investment and will be crucial on your big day. I cannot recommend CBPF enough, it was the best decision we made in planning our wedding! Thank you CBPF!
