5.0/5.0
My (now) husband and I were married at the Half Moon Cruise and Celebration Center in Downtown Norfolk, VA on June 20, 2015 and it was the most magical day of our lives. We got engaged June 1, 2014 and immediately began plans for a June wedding the following summer. Once we booked the venue (which was the first item on our list!), I was recommended by our caterer (Omar's Carriage House) that we look into a day-of coordinator. Two coordinators were suggested to us and after we met with both, Troy and I immediately clicked with Crystal. She was very professional, incredibly sweet, and just sooo excited to help plan our wedding day! She offered an array of packages that would best fit our needs as a bride and groom, and we chose to be very hands-on with the process. I would research, find the vendors that I liked, and secure them for our day. Crystal would then take the reigns and be the liaison in coordinating their arrival times, etc. With such an unique venue, day-of coordination was essential due to the freight elevator that the vendors had to use to get into the building. Since Crystal was very familiar with venue, coordination and transitions were seamless. Not only was Crystal the orchestrator for our wedding day, she was always available via email, phone, or text message whenever I had questions on ANYTHING! Her recommendations were phenomenal; she referred us to our WONDERFUL officiant (Christina Rodriguez), our invitation designer (PaperDoll Designs) and day-of transportation (Orange Peel Transport), just to name a few. Honestly, I could not say enough about Crystal and her wedding ninjas at Cherry Blossom Weddings and I could not imagine planning my wedding without her! It was so comforting to know that I had someone to turn to when I got overwhelmed with the details. WE love you, Crystal and hope we can hang out soon!

I wish I could explain how amazing Crystal and her team were in helping me to coordinate my event. She was there for me every time I changed my mind on something with her help and further suggestions, even if it was something I changed my mind on a few days before the wedding to bring everything inside. :) When you hire Crystal, what you are getting is a stress-free day where you do not have to worry about anything at all and she and her team took my disorganized decor and did exactly what I wanted. The wedding ninjas must also be mind-readers! :) I also enjoyed their quirky, cute spunky attitudes and smiled each time I received an email promising me warmth and glitter.

In this industry, there are a lot of vendors out there. I have seen some other folks trying to be day-of-coordinators and wedding planners, because they enjoyed planning their wedding so much. I have then seen other brides' photos and tears that their day didn't turn out how they wanted, nor were they given what they were promised. I just feel so much better that I hired Cherry Blossom Weddings. Crystal and her team had a lot of integrity and fulfilled each and every promise they made me of having a relatively stress-free day. :) They brought out the day I envisioned and the day that I wanted. I feel that I have not only made a pal for life, but that I feel proud that I had the chance to work with such a great team to pull off a large event.

When deciding on this service, please take into account that integrity matters! You don't get a do-over on this day, but with a team like Cherry Blossoms you won't need that. :)

Many thanks!!!

Praise for Cherry Blossom Weddings! Crystal was our wedding 'ninja' throughout one of the most important and memorable events me and my wife have gone through together. Throughout the process, she was helpful in more ways than we could count. Dealing with the family and guests was stressful enough for us, so she was able to manage the vendors in a professional manner to ensure our big day was about truly about us and not about the vendors and all the "circumstances" that normally arise. Everything was planned accordingly well in advance, and if for some reason the timeline she handcrafts for you gets a little fuzzy during the day (in our circumstance our driver drove a little too quickly to the reception location), she was able to adapt and re-strategize, all while keeping it cool and collected, which then reflected back to me and my wife so we could enjoy ourselves the way we're supposed to. If you're looking for an event coordinator, look no further! Just ask for Crystal!

ohhhh man. Where do I start? We started planning for our wedding about 9 months before the big day. We knew we wanted to have it at the Half Moon Cruise Terminal and Celebration Center so we booked our wedding 5-10-15. We also went online and found a photographer, Leigh Skaggs. We fell in love with her and her work!

About 5 months before the wedding we realized that there was so much to do and neither one of us had the time to do it. The photographer, Leigh Skaggs, recommended that we call Crystal Beng from Cherry Blossom Weddings. It was the best decision we made! We told her our budget and gave her a general idea of what we wanted to do.

Crystal arranged meetings with all of the necessary vendors. She picked us up and drove us to each one. We went to Distinctive Events, Backstage Lighting, The New Leaf florist, Omar's Catering, and Astro DJ. We went to tastings together and we even had dinner with her and the officiant a few days before to go over the details of the ceremony. She has all the connections to make things happen.

She gave us advice and direction when we asked for it and at the same time she catered to what we wanted to do. We got to pick out the many pieces to the puzzle and then Crystal put all of those puzzle pieces together. She helped us with our timeline of events, venue layout, invitations, seating charts, and so much more. She is so organized and calm mannered, that when it came to our big day there were no surprises. Everything went better than we ever thought it could.

I couldn't have imagined trying to do this without her and her team of ninjas. And the cost of all of her services was only 6% of our total cost of the wedding. Talk about some "Beng" for your Buck!

My partner and I got married on May 9th at the Aquarium and we were getting overwhelmed with planning and working 40+ hours a week. We reached out to Crystal and her ninjas and it was worth every penny! From the very beginning Crystal was extremely organized, professional and was full of energy. She responded quickly to every question we had, provided guidance when we were lost, and was open to every idea we came up with (and she had bag full of ideas
herself!). She made sure our rehearsal went off efficiently, and when the big day came she and
her ninjas were amazing! They were so calm,
cool, and collected, and it allowed my partner
and I to let go of any worries we had about the
day and just enjoy each other and the moment.
Our day was absolutely perfect, and if anything
did go wrong we never saw it because Crystal
was there and took care of every little detail. If
we could rate her at 6 stars we would! I will be
recommending Cherry Blossom Weddings to all my friends and family, and if you are looking for a wedding planner look no further because you have found the best!! Thank you Crystal and all your ninjas!

Crystal was absolute perfection and was the biggest contributor to having a stress free wedding day. Her calming nature and extremely positive attitude was very reassuring. My bridesmaids were very impressed as well and went to her for various reasons, and every single issue was taken care of right down to having music while we were getting ready. Her organization and timelines are incredible and made sure all the things, I never thought of, were addressed. The room was set up to look even better than what I had imagined. I can’t thank Crystal and her ninja’s enough and will always speak highly of their service!!

Can we give her 100 stars out of 5? Crystal is (and was) absolutely AWESOME.

She's incredible at what she does, her organization is impeccable, she has countless connections in the industry, she's calm under pressure, and equally important -- she's an awesome person.

Leading up to the wedding, Crystal provided checklists and timelines and was ALWAYS available for answering questions or meeting us to help us figure out how we should move forward. (my wife had what seemed like one million Pinterest ideas, all of which Crystal helped to look through and help make happen)

As the wedding got closer, Crystal helped us to create the center pieces in all stages: gathering materials, putting them together, painting, etc. etc. This was a HUGE help.

Lastly, the day of the wedding, Crystal and team had everything running smoothly; there was zero stress for my wife and I, and we knew exactly what to do, where to be, and when.

Our guests commented on how smooth everything went, and as a planner, that's likely the best feedback she can get from those not involved in the wedding or planning.

We couldn't have done this without Crystal, and we recommend that nobody planning their wedding try. She's the best!

Oh my goodness. I'm not sure there would have been a wedding if not for Crystal and her ninjas. We certainly could not have pulled it off without her. Thanks to CBW, my husband and I did not have to worry about a thing. Crystal was so patient, even through my endless barrage of questions, and thanks to her meticulous planning we were able to enjoy our wedding day rather than freaking out over bringing everything together. Seriously, hire Cherry Blossom Weddings. She's like wedding day Valium - you don't have to worry about a thing with Crystal and her ninjas on your team!
