My husband and I were engaged on 6.15.2012. Within 2 weeks, we had chosen 11.16.2012 for our wedding date as well as chosen our church. We knew we would need the help of a wedding planner for the reception, vendors, etc. So I did online research, narrowed my choices to 5 planners; one of which was Citygirl Weddings & Events. The owner, Sharokina or Shar, was the only one who answered my call live and in person. Not only was she friendly but she knew right away that she was available on my date. Most importantly, she did not shy away from me when I said the word "budget". I called on a Tuesday and we set up a consultation that Friday. We hit it off instantly. By Monday, my then-fiancee/my now-husband and I signed our contract with Shar. We were now off on our wedding planning journey! Because of Shar, we chose a beautiful wedding location and we worked with an amazing team of vendors that we otherwise might have never discovered on our own. Shar and her team, whom we affectionately call "The Dream Team", visualized the perfect wedding for us. Shar was organized and kept all the moving parts of planning a wedding, on track. We were in constant contact with Shar, and she was always accessible. And on our wedding day, everything went flawlessly. My husband and I were able to enjoy our special day without any worries, all thanks to Shar and The Dream Team. Our wedding day was more beautiful than we had hoped. We can't imagine having gone through the wedding planning process without Shar. If you're planning a wedding or event, please call Shar at Citygirl Weddings & Events. I can't wait to plan another event with Shar.

I contacted Shar to work as "day of wedding coordinator". She was exceptional. She was very professional, organized and possessed the best project management skills. She went way beyond the scope of a day of wedding coordinator to insure that the day flowed according to our expectations.
She used a great wedding project management application that helped us keep up with the latest updates. She helped out from initial consultation to the very end of the wedding reception. If you are looking for someone to make sure your day takes off without a hitch (100% problem free), then Sharokina is who you want to work with.

Me and my wife had the pleasure of working with Sharokina through Citygirl Weddings. Getting married can be a stressful event in your life but Sharokina made this process so much easier. She answered all our questions and provided so many suggestions for the event. She made all our crazy ideas come true. Not only did Sharokina work with my wife and I, but also worked with our parents as well. Sharokina was so helpful I don't think my dream wedding could've happened without her. She truly is one in a million and I absolutely recommend her. She works so so hard to make everything you want possible. I am so honored to have had the pleasure to work with an outstanding wedding planner!

Sharokina was an amazing wedding planner! She was very detailed and listened to everything we wanted our wedding to be. She also had a great challenge of working with a family that was mostly Spanish speaking. She didn't let the language barrier come between the marvelous job she did the day of! I would want to have had it any other way!

Sharokina and Citygirl Weddings recently planned my May 2011 wedding, and I was more than impressed. The planning services were very reasonably priced, and Sharokina was very organized and dedicated to making my event personalized and special. She accompanied me in all my meetings and provided me with excellent vendors. Also, having a multicultural wedding, Sharokina went out of her way to make sure we were able to honor all of the traditions from all sides of our families. She also had great ideas on how personalize my wedding. The wedding day ran very smoothly and everything went according to schedule. Overall it was such a great experience working with Citygirl and I highly recommend her for any event!

Hiring Sharokina as our DOC was one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding day. We hired her about 3 months prior to our wedding and she was extremely helpful during those crucial last few "crunch time" months. She made herself accessible via phone, email, and in person whenever we needed her. She was always super fast to respond and very thorough.

Shar ensured that our wedding day was stress free by setting up and tearing down all of our DIY projects, she dealt with vendors, organized family members and the bridal party, and kept us on schedule throughout the day.

I interviewed several wedding planners during our search. None of them exhibited the professionalism and left me feeling as comfortable to hand over the reigns as Shar did. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a fabulous and trustworthy event planner!

We used Sharokina as a day-of coordinator for our wedding day. We had a lot of DIY projects my husband and I did ourselves to save money, and wanted to make sure all of our hard work was executed as we imagined on the day-of.
Her and her assistant were on time and managed our day very well. I had not heard of anything going wrong on our wedding day (which a bride shouldn't), it just seemed as though everything went through as planned. Sharokina fielded any questions, calls, etc. the day-of so I did not have to worry. I was just able to enjoy the day. Her and her assistant packed up our car at the end of the night with gifts, centerpieces, and all the other odds and ends that we needed to take home.
Brides, in order to enjoy your wedding day you need someone behind-the-scenes making sure all of your hard work is executed the day of and to keep you on your timeline. All the planning leads up to one day, and you want it to be perfect. I recommend hiring Sharokina.

Events by Sharokina provided an exceptional amount of service, professionalism, promptness, and most importantly, put our needs first.

Sharokina and the highly trained professionals that work with her, worked within the budget my fiancé and I put in place. The initial phone call was so relaxing and comforting. It felt as if I have known Sharokina for years. Their no non-sense, bottom line and compassionate approach helped put my fears aside and allowed me to become excited for my special day.

I would definitely scream the streets for this planner any day!!!! Give her a call, you'll see what I mean.
