Getting my now husband on board with the idea of an event planner/wedding coordinator took a bit of work. I knew it was something we needed be just wasn't too sure. After the event, he cannot say enough good things about Glitter + Whiskey Events and neither can I!

Working with Candace and Emily was such an awesome experience! They were so incredibly easy to work with and had our big day go off without a hitch!

Emily from Glitter + Whiskey did a PHENOMENAL job as my day-of coordinator. As a type A personality, I need someone who is quick to respond, do what they say they are going to do, and do it in a thorough, quick, and quality manner. Emily went above and beyond all of this. Not once did I have to worry about "would this get done" or "how am I going to do this". Emily made sure EVERYTHING was taken care of and it made my wedding day so worry free and fun. I could not have done it without her and Rhonda, who assisted her on my wedding day. They were both fantastic. I know that sometimes a day-of coordinator can seem unnecessary and just another extension of your already out-of-control budget, but the attentive and overall amazing work Glitter + Whiskey provides is worth it and so is the piece of mind on your wedding day.

We met Candace at a Bridal Show and IMMEDIATELY knew she was the wedding planner we needed. She is quite possibly the nicest, sweetest, positive and pleasant person I have ever met as well! But when it came time to step up and take charge she fulfilled the role beautifully. Everything ran smoothly on the day of, I forgot a lot of things and Candace was there to pick up the pieces. She calmed my nerves before walking into the church, and the way she set up everything for the reception was perfect. We only had an hour before the reception started to set up and I had to trust her and her team to work with the venue and the vendors to ensure everything was taken care of. She kept the time and kept everything rolling smoothly. Worth every penny we paid. I will recommend her to my close friends and family any day.

Candace Lynn,
Alfredo and I are truly thankful for your services! We felt we got more than just a service but a friend that really genuinely wanted and made sure that our special day would be unforgettable and it was. As the bride, you made sure I was having a great time and worry free. You and your mother always had a smile in your face and were very nice to my family. Thank you again for letting me have the pleasure to book you for an outstanding reasonable price! I would recommend your services for any coordinating event. Hope to keep in touch :)

My wedding day would not have been just like I always dreamed of it without Candace! She was there every step of the way for me from going to wedding extravaganzas, picking my wedding colors, flowers, table settings, escort cards, references for photographers (Amy Watson was AMAZING!) to helping me make a schedule of when things needed to be delivered, started and ending fir the day of the wedding and even rehearsal. She made sure that I was stress free and that everything was exactly as I had invisioned! She was able to take the crazy ideas I had in my head and make them realistic and scaled to fit my budget. She was honest with me if she thought something wouldn't look right or if i need to tone it back down some.

Candace was more than just my wedding planner she was my calm place to go when I got stressed about anything. She was always available for me to run something through her. She came to every appointment I set and invited her to even when she didn't have to. She went above and beyond anything I could imagine!

I remember when I first started out and asked her to come view the venues with me that she followed along with a smile on here face the whole time! Such a sweetheart and makes you feel like you have known her your whole life :)! She even helped make my crazy idea of covering a 9x9 wall in sold white balloons come true! It was amazing by the way and would have never come together without her!!!!!!!!

With Love,
David and Emily Mays

Candace was amazing- and fair priced to boot!! I am so glad we chose her to help out with weekend-of coordination! Couldn't have done it without her. Kept me calm throughout the entire day and night! everything was so smooth. If there were any problems (which I'm sure there were,) I was unaware of them because she handled it. This woman can get things DONE! I would truly recommend her to anyone wanting a fabulous wedding. Not only is she punctual and professional, she is creative and fun. We got so many great DIY ideas from her. It was such a special time and I am glad she was there to make it happen.

Candace is such a blessing! Honestly I know my wedding day would not have been the relaxing, enjoyable, stress free day that it was without Candace. She handled everything with grace and professionalism and it allowed myself and family to just sit back and enjoy the day. That's what it should be. My best advice to future brides is cut back on flowers or somewhere else in your wedding but dont cut back on have a wedding coordinator. It changed the whole experience for me. I know not everyone feels that way about hiring wedding coordinators, but you will if you have Candace like I did.

It rained on my wedding day and I lost my wedding marriage certificate somewhere and Candace managed this all, plus we decided to extend our reception by an hour and she went negotiated with the vendors about cost for the additional hour and I had drunken guests I needed someone to be watching out for (which she did an incredible job of...our families are rowdy bunch)....plus all the normal stuff like maintaining a timeline and collecting/distributing money to vendors, gifts, etc... My day floated on like dream without myself or my family dealing with any of this all thanks to Candace =) I would reccommend her to anyone!

Much Love!

Candace gave me much guidance and support during what could have been a stressful time! Her advice was both comforting and helpful. I had no idea all of the "things" that happened the day of my wedding were going to happen, but they did, and Candace was there to save my day! Her being there for us allowed all of the families to be together and enjoy the enitre day, instead of everyone being scattered around town and putting out wedding day-of fires. She executed all of my thoughts and hopes for the reception and church settings. She also helped my husband and I through the reception with on time cake cutting, buffet introduction and much more! Her services are priceless!!! My friends and family found her to be a delight as well! We are very thankful Candace was there for us on our wedding day!!!

4.8/5.0
I was planning a small intimate wedding at a family friend’s home, and didn’t think I needed a wedding Coordinator. One month before my wedding I realized that was not the case! I called Candace and she responded to me immediately. During our first meeting she asked me several questions about my event, and was able to provide insight on areas I overlooked, and provide recommendations for the last few Vendors I had not secured. Candace really guided me through the details that I had not considered, such as the structure of the ceremony and the timeline for the ceremony and reception. She helped me map out the set up of the tables, chairs, decorations, and food stations, and this was very helpful. Most importantly, on the day of my wedding there was a huge thunderstorm that started in the afternoon and lasted the entire evening! This was devastating considering my reception was to be outdoors. Candace took charge and coordinated moving everything (tables, chairs, decorations) that was set up outside for the reception inside all within about an hour after the ceremony. Everything looked great and you couldn’t even tell we hadn’t planned for it to be inside. I didn’t have to worry about anything all day, and that is so important on the day of your wedding. Candace is professional, poised, and great to work with. She is experienced and knows exactly what to do, even in stressful situations. If you think you don’t need a Coordinator, trust me you do! I highly recommend Candace. I can’t thank her enough for saving my wedding day!

As a bride's mom who had done all of the actual planning and engaging vendors, we were looking for day of event coordination.
Candace Lynn events kept in touch with us and met with us prior to the ceremony and had very good suggestions.

The on site coordination was very good and Candace Lynn reached out to all of the vendors and did a great job of creating the time line.

Coordination between church and reception venue was very good.
Physical transport of the decorations to the reception was a service much needed and very helpful.
Candace Lynn took good care of the wedding party and was very welcoming to ur guests. Very flexible and kept a finger on the pulse of the 200 wedding guests.

Other than a few lapses in communication owing to a computer failure,
Candace Lynn Events provided very good service as a "day of event " coordinator and we would use their services again.

I used Candace as my day of. It was very hard to get a hold of her. It took a couple of months to get back to me on rental options and fees for her decorations. It was actually our mutual acquaintance that got back to me for her. On the day of she forgot to bring the two rental items (birdcages for cards and lanterns for the walkway). Luckily, she was not charging me for them. I was also disappointed that she did not notice that one of the vendors had sent over a red aisle runner instead of the white one I ordered. She had my contracts with the details and knew that it was an ALL white wedding. She did not alert me and therefore this red carpet is in all of my ceremony wedding photos. Had I known I would have opted not to use a runner at all and the problem would have been solved. The big mishap occured when her assistant directed my brother, who was in my wedding party, to sit down and had the wrong person walk my mother down the aisle. The groom tried to correct it and informed them that this person was not in the wedding party and that my brother, who was in a tuxedo, was to walk with her down the aisle. When John walked away the assistant told my mother and the wrong person to just hurry up and go. They also sent my officiant down the aisle(she was just to be in place already) and sent the best man with the groom instead of with the maid-of-honor like I had directed. After the wedding, I notified her that I could not locate my center pieces or vases she said she would locate them but she had them the whole time. There were other small things that she did that I was not pleased with but I will leave them out. Her response was a half-hearted apology in which she shifted the blame to me for not having a traditional rehearsal and described how stressful the day was and that it was a "disaster" before I arrived. Although the pricing was good, it was not worth the service we received.
