Carin Lomax and her team made our daughter's wedding day and all the months leading up to it a smooth, seamless process that allowed us to completely enjoy the moment. Carin is absolutely unflappable. She is calm, amazingly organized, and gave us complete confidence every step of the way. We literally cannot say enough great things about her. From our first meeting with her to Carin and her assistant helping to load our car at 1:30 in the morning with food, flowers, my long-forgotten sunglasses and other personal items from the wedding, Carin made this wonderful, but potentially stressful day, a triumph. Carin was always there with the attention, thoughtful insights, patience and confidence that all would be well. Her advice and suggestions on location, catering, band, photographer, videographer, and florist, were all spot on. She did not let a single detail slip. We enthusiastically recommend Carin Lomax and Events Extraordinaire.

Carin was flat out amazing. She helped us plan my wedding which was just a few weeks ago, and we could never have done it without her. She had the seemingly magic ability to listen to and take care of every single one of our requests without batting an eye, even when they were outlandish or last-minute. Especially on day of, she was perfect at finding me, my groom, or any other person who had a role at any moment and discreetly letting them know it was time for the next speech or activity (entrance, cake cutting, etc) which made the event flow so smoothly and I didn't have to worry about a thing. I'd recommend her ten times over!

Events Extraordinaire was very professional and knowledgeable about wedding vendors as well as how to pull all the many moving parts together for the big day. They were very easy to work with to discuss different options and to help us reach decisions. They were "extraordinarily" helpful on the day of the wedding allowing all of us in the wedding party to enjoy our ceremony and celebration. We would highly recommend them.

I was concerned at first reaching out to a company that was not local to where I was planning our wedding, but that concern was quickly put to rest based on all of Carin's years of experience. She was full of wonderful ideas and was so extremely helpful. Near or far, I would definitely consider reaching out to Events Extraordinaire when planning your next event.

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.
