Where to even start!? As my parents said after the wedding weekend, we couldn't have done it without her. Colleen was incredibly fun to work with...I now consider her a friend! She was incredibly patient while we worked through our vision for the wedding (which changed a couple of times!) and she helped bring it all to life. We spent a few days together in Charlottesville in vendor meetings, running through the itinerary and at the Tasting. She made everything so much fun and really listened to what we wanted. I'm a very detail-oriented person and organization to me is key, so I felt so lucky to be working with someone who I trusted to keep the trains running on time. The evening went off without a hitch and everything appeared completely seamless to guests. Colleen helped manage all the vendors and made sure I didn't lift a finger on my wedding day. Thank you to the whole Colleen Miller Events team, who made our June wedding the best day ever!

We worked with Krystal from Colleen Miller Events and she was fantastic! I dont know what we would have done without her. We highered Colleen Miller Events for month of planning. Krystal was available by phone or email anytime to answer any wedding questions that we had. She also came to our final meeting at the venue and rehearsal. It was great to have her there as she made sure everything ran smoothly. On the day of our wedding we had an issue with the buses as they left about 10 guests behind at the hotel. Normally that would be something I would have to take care of but I simply told Krystal what was going on and walked away. She was able to take care of it. She also made she that my dress was laid out before I walked down the aisle, that my husband and I add the specialty dessert we ordered and that we were able to enjoy the entire day!

Kate Phillips of Colleen Miller Events was so helpful in making our wedding at Trump Winery beautiful and special. She made suggestions that we would not have thought of which made the day run smoothly and made our guests enjoy it even more. She suggested that we have heaters and blankets in case the weather did not cooperate. The day was very chilly for our outdoor patio ceremony and cocktail hour so the heaters and blankets were essential to our guests comfort. Kate helped with our floral and reception design. It was spectacular! Our guests keep talking about our fun and beautiful party!

Kate was amazing! She was brilliant from the day we started working with her right through the wedding. She helped us find great vendors, bring everything together, and the day itself was smooth and easy. The whole time she was easy to work with, flexible, and did everything to make sure our wedding was a great success! Thanks Kate!

Kate Phillips was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond any expectations I had and made my wedding day more magical than I ever dreamed up in my head. I am a busy person and not very creative so I didn't give Kate much to work with in terms of what I really knew I wanted. I just knew i wanted it to be great. I literally never stressed out at any point in the wedding planning( except for the first month of engagement before I found Kate). Kate cares so deeply that her clients have everything perfect for their day I knew it would be perfect and that nothing would be missed. Not only is Colleen Miller Events fantastic they also know all the vendors so well so they are able to guide you toward the best vendors for what you want. I will forever be grateful to Kate for giving my husband and I the best wedding possible, and even doing so on a budget!!!! Thank you Colleen Miller Events !

I honestly cannot say enough great things about Colleen Miller Events! I was well into the wedding planning process when it dawned on me that I needed some help with the day-of logistics! Contacting Colleen Miller was by far one of the best decisions I made throughout the entire wedding planning process! I hired Colleen Miller Events as my Month-Of wedding coordinator--I recommend this service to any bride! If you want to enjoy your wedding day and be stress free, this service is a must!
I worked with Kate Phillips starting 6 weeks before my wedding date and she was just a dream to work with and have on-board! Kate is professional, friendly, knowledgable, and a problem solver. She was always available to answer my questions, check-in with vendors, and calm me down! She operates with such ease and skill.
My husband and I were having our wedding in Charlottesville from out of town and having our dogs available for pictures on our wedding day meant so much to us! Our dogs were staying at a local pet hotel and Kate got our dogs to our venue (with the help of her fabulous assistant, Krystal) and even carried the dogs into our venue to keep them from getting dirty from the hard rain! These ladies are just so professional and easy-going and want to make your day special! Do yourself a huge favor and hire the ladies of Colleen Miller Events. I am so thankful that I did and know my day went off without a hitch because of all their hard work and help!

I'm somewhat of a workaholic with a type A personality, who didn't want to be bogged down with wedding planning. Having said that, I still have an opinion about everything and had very specific requirements(that I gave in what I would describe as very general terms because I don't have much vision when it comes to creativity).I knew my color palette and other than that, I of course wanted a beautiful day (who doesn't!?). I just didn't want to deal with the hassle of it all and asked Colleen to run with it– make it gorgeous! Colleen not only made the process fun(I loved getting to know her), she was consultative, her response time was 2nd to none, she helped us manage the process (was a mediator at times☺)and she made me feel like I was her only bride(even though I know she was slammed with a ton).In addition, we had a massive production. We had two tents (that were breathtaking)and had nearly 200 people, having everyone in town early to our rehearsal dinner. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, and when I say we had two epic parties; it was just that! EVERYTHING down to the very last detail was done perfectly, and I’m not a believer in “perfect.” I’m not one to be over the top about something(this is only the 2nd review I’ve ever written), but there were so many examples where Colleen pulled it together for us, from our caterer forgetting about our entire after party’s food(I’m not kidding - this is something she fixed of course) down to the fine details. I will never forget going to cut our cake and there were the two flutes I had purchased and brought to the venue with me. I had never told Colleen about them,(I think they were jammed somewhere in a random bag in in the bridal suite. Colleen had taken the time to go through everything (in cases exactly as such), to make sure I hadn’t forgotten anything. This small review doesn’t do her justice; if you’re looking for awesome,creative, smart, fun with a ton of experience, she will help you have the best day of your life!

When I first began contemplating organizing a wedding, I didn't think I'd need a planner: I'm an organized, details-oriented person myself, and my then-fiance and I were local to the area where we'd be holding the ceremony and reception. However, the venue we chose required a full-time planner, so after interviewing several, we chose to work with Colleen Miller --- and I'm incredibly glad we did.

From helping us meet our budget to answering I've-lost-count-of-how-many emails to steering us to vendors who were a great fit to nudging me to the right logistics and decor choices to being there to shepherd it all on The Day --- Colleen made a process that seems to too easily morph into a maze of confusing craziness stay clean and true throughout. I will look back fondly on not just the wedding day, but the entire process of creation and organization leading up to it because Colleen kept a complicated event feel very simple. (Plus, she kept everything on track!)

I was able to be calm and present in the weeks leading up to our wedding day and on the day itself because I felt so entirely confident in Colleen's capable self and relieved of a myriad of duties. And THAT, more than anything, is why I'd recommend Colleen as a wedding planner. To not be stressed out on your wedding day --- how many brides can genuinely claim that?
