Carin helped organize my daughter's wedding on May 31st. Her role in making this a happy, memorable event was a very, very important one. Most of the brides' parents, like us, have limited experience with weddings: at best, we organize a few, and all at different times, so things change between them. Our daughter's wedding was at 2941 restaurant in Falls Church, VA; Carin was very familiar with the venue, knew the principal contacts there, and made many useful suggestions. She has helped this ship to sail streadily and calmly, in spite of multiple logistical constraints, such as the fact that the bride and groom were several time zones away, and needed to maintain busy business schedules. And the flow of events on the wedding day has been flawless, exceeding all our expectations. Thank you again, Carin, and good luck.

Carin Lomax was such a pleasure to work with! Her business, Events Extraordinaire, and the service provided to us during our wedding planning process was outstanding, both from Carin and from her assistant. The preparation was all done within 5 months' time and we worked it out beautifully, without me feeling like I was losing or missing out on any part of the wedding that I wanted because of the time crunch. She helped us stay on task and budget and was always helping to come up with creative ideas. Carin was flexible, always mentally present to what we desired and wanted to create, always supportive of my needs and the groom's needs in the process. Well done!! I would highly recommend this business to friends and family for wedding planning in the DC Metro area and I would consider her for other event planning too.

We had our dream wedding thanks to Carin. Every bride's fear is to have something go wrong on her wedding day, I couldn't be any more happy with our choice to go forth with Carin to be our day of planner. Everything went so smooth and we couldn't ask for a more perfect wedding day. My husband and I had no idea where to start with all the planning. Carin guided us throughout the planning process and reminded is of what we need to get done. I would recommend Carin to anyone planning a special event. She's professional and get the work done.

Carin is the consumate professional and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She did everything I expected from a full-service wedding planner and exceeded my expectations in every category. Whether it was recommending vendors in the year leading up to the wedding, saving us money through her vendor relationships, getting our input yet being decicive on details, being completely prepared on wedding day, or working with our officiants and families, Caren was a huge reason our wedding was such a success.

In planning my daughter's wedding out of state, I left all of the final details to Carin Lomax of Events Extraordinaire. Since the wedding was at Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ, we had to provide the accessories that are the final touches of any event. Carin was very responsive and a calming influence when it came to meeting delivery deadlines. The details included all of the paper goods including cocktail napkins, customized flags for drinking straws, menu cards, favor name tags, candy bags, etc. Before final printing, Carin always gives you a proof of the final product to review and approve. It was very comforting to know that Carin was in control and always delivered in a timely manner a product that makes the party a memorable event. My son is getting married in September 2014 and I have already booked Carin for the rehearsal dinner. Events Extraordinaire is a "must have" on your team for a successful event.

I want to be clear; Carin Lomax did it all. I was blown away by the end result. I wanted the fabulous wedding but did not want to plan. I would throw out an idea and Carin would miraculously know MY VISION. The caterer, florist, venue was A-One. Believe me she has connections. My wedding was island themed but not literally, venue was the historic mansion Oxon Hill Manor on the Potomac. Testament to Carin Lomax and Events Extraodinaire everyone, and I do mean everyone, knew Carin's name and commented that MY WEDDING WAS THE BEST THEY HAD EVER ATTENDED IN LIFE!!! And that's a lot weddings since we are 50+.

Carin is amazing. Like the previous reviewer, I had hired her essentially as my "day of" coordinator but really she did so much more for me. She met with me multiple times, recommended vendors, made sure I was on the correct timeline for planning the wedding and made sure I hadn't forgotten anything.

And on the day of the wedding, I didn't worry about a thing. I was completely checked out and have no idea if things went wrong because I was way too busy having a great time! There was one moment on the day of the wedding where I overheard her on the phone with what must have been a lost vendor but I didn't even sweat it because I knew she was ALL over it. I had a lot of different elements to my wedding and Carin was able to coordinate everything perfectly. I had a lot of DIY touches to my wedding and Carin was able to set everything up beautifully. I also have a family that can be a little intense and she handled that expertly. What I also love about Carin is that she is completely honest. She wasn't afraid to tell me when things weren't the best idea and when I should do things differently.

Since my wedding, I've been telling everyone that will listen that having a wedding coordinator is the best thing you can do for yourself. Consider it a present for yourself because as the bride, the only thing you should be worried about is having a good time. And if you're in the DC/VA/MD, I wholly recommend Carin. She was incredible and seriously the best gift I could've given myself during this planning process.

Carin had incredible vision, was easy and fun to work with, was able to manage our personalities well, very detail oriented - overall a great experience. And the event ended up being even more amazing than we expected.

Carin Lomax of Events Extraordinaire was wonderful! She was our "Day of" Event Coordinator for our wedding and our day went better than I could have ever imagined! I know it was in large part due to her.

Although she was a "Day of" coordinator don't let the "Day of" title fool you. Carin met with me twice (once with the vendor and once on our own) and she was available via email and phone. I must admit I was more on the clueless side for a bride in regards to many things, and Carin didn't freak me out and cause me stress with the unknown. She was great with detailing things that I needed to consider and/or remember. And she did so without being heavy handed, but with just the right amount of force to get my attention without causing stress. She's blunt and straight forward, which I appreciate.

Carin was also very helpful with our venue vendor. If it wasn't for her I would have missed out on a few thousand dollars in services from the vendor. For those unfamiliar with the Banquet Event Order, Carin is a Godsend!

After our wedding I loved hearing my friends (who are organizers) rave about Carin. But my favourite story was from my younger brother who told me of a moment when Carin sternly got his attention (after a couple of previous attempts) and got him moving for pictures or whatever it was he was supposed to be doing. I loved it!

Carin knows how to work with a-little-too-laid-back of a bride. She's great with not adding stress during a stressful planning time. Most of all, Carin really knows how to work with the bridal party as well as the friends and family on the rehearsal day and wedding day. Not to mention the vendors.

I have no clue if anything went wrong on our wedding day - and that speaks volumes!

Sincerely,
A. Kim Du'sauzay-Smith

We planned our wedding at a Football Stadium which is kinda unique and different. We chose
To go use an expert to help us with all the planning and cordination of all the vendors, which was all done with-in 6 months. We would have forgotten about so many little details if it wasn't for Carin Lomax the "Wedding Planner". We had the best day of our lives and we owe it all to you and your team.
Thank you for everything you did- Melissa Wolf
