I did not arbitrarily assign 5 stars to each column; those 5's represent the best experience of my life. From the first consultation to picking out cake flavors, flowers, and decor, the process was a breeze for a bride who already had way too much on her hands. If I could go back and relive the process again, it would be with CJ's and it's wonderful staff.

As an out-of-state resident attempting to plan a destination wedding, CJ's staff could not be more accommodating with the correspondence, planning, designing, and execution of my wedding day. Of course, planning from a distance always presents more challenges, but Amy was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable in assisting us with this challenge of planning a destination wedding in 6 months! My fiance and I were only able to travel to Tennessee twice for meetings at CJ's, so there were many things we had to step out in faith on. We didn't get to sample our food (we did get to try cake flavors!) or see what our flower arrangements would exactly look like, but we were pretty confident we would be pleased.
When my wedding day actually arrived, I was blown away. Completely exceeded my expectations. The flowers were gorgeous, the food was delicious, the decorations were beautiful! My cake was the only thing that wasn't decorated to my request. Before I could even say anything, Amy already came to apologize and tell me they would be refunding me due to the situation. The cake was still lovely, and tasted amazing--but that's the type of customer service exhibited at CJ's.
The vendors they use are top notch. Our DJ (Rick Ross) played every thing I had asked for. He even made sure to download the specific, not-easy-to-find songs I wanted for my ceremony. All the vendors that I had to to make arrangements with (Caprice the Florist, Rick the DJ) were very prompt and thorough in their communication with me.
Almost 3 months later, my guests are STILL talking about how beautiful our wedding was, how much they loved the food and how wonderful the venue is. If you are undecided about booking here--just do it. You won't regret it.

CJ's and Amy were the most amazing group of event planners to work with! We could not have been any more pleased with our wedding and they pulled off our vision flawlessly. Our guests had such an amazing day and we had not a worry in the world during the entire planning process. They make it so effortless! My husband and I both work full time and they were so accommodating to us and our needs. I would recommend CJ's to any and everyone!
