Where do I start? First off, if you're looking for your planner look no further...you've found the BEST planner! Have you watched the Wedding Planner with JLO? Cera is the new JLO :) Cera planned our beautiful September 16th wedding. She was soooo amazing throughout the entire... Read More process. She was helpful beyond belief at every turn! Even towards the weekend before our wedding when she was super busy with 2 weddings in one weekend she still managed to answer my texts, call me back, and update our vendors as needed. Not only is she incredibly talented and knowledgeable at what she does but she does it with grace. I'm quite the Type A personality and bought decorations for two years. When it came to the BIG day I was so worried about everything matching my vision. However, Cera assured me that she knew my vision and not to worry. As I walked down the aisle I caught little glimpses of decor and the room was magical. Now, I'm not a bridezilla by any means but I did ask Cera to do the unthinkable at our venue. We got married at Roaring Camp Railroads in the Barn (Brete Hall) where most receptions occur or ceremony and reception but the room is set up for the reception beforehand. Of course this was not my vision. I asked Cera if she could flip the space after the ceremony :) I fully expected a no, but instead she sweetly said if that's what you want we'll get it done! Cera and her team flipped the space during our train ride and cocktail hour. Not one detail missed! The tables were gorgeous! Every place setting flawless, center pieces perfect, sign in table and gift wagon were 100% on point! I was in heaven! All night everyone said that it was the most beautiful & fun wedding they've ever been to. Cera insured that we stayed on schedule throughout the evening and even as I was spending extra time saying hi to everyone she still was sweet and didn't rush me. Not 1 thing went wrong and if it did I had no clue. If you want your big day to be beautiful and go exactly as you dream, hire Cera Singley Events. Her and her team will make your day perfect. You'll be worry free and truly be able to enjoy the most amazing day of your life. OOOOh she also took the time on her way home after clearing out the venue and packing up our decor to stop by our hotel to hand deliver us the top tier of our cake. Seriously, nothing slips through her hands. Thank you Cera for everything! You always made me feel like I was your only bride during the busiest time of wedding season. Also you have a great team behind you! Your girls were super sweet and incredibly helpful. XOXOXO The Ebadypours

We would not have pulled off our dream wedding without Cera. She is next level. as a wedding coordinator, she kept track of every detail, made sure the day didn't run behind schedule, and took full control of the day so as the bride I didn't have to worry about anything other...

To say that Cera is amazing is an understatement--she helped make my dream wedding possible.

Where do I start?!? Cera and her assistant Danee were spectacular! When our venue reservation fell through, I knew I had to get some external help to get everything done on time. Some people don't realize how important and necessary a wedding planner really is (I must admit, I... Read More was one of them), but this was one of the BEST investments I've made for our wedding. As soon as we came up with a vision, Cera and Danee worked really hard to ensure that our wedding was executed exactly how we imagined it. Cera kept in contact with all the vendors and helped with all of the planning. Danee, Nicole, and Rochelle were amazing during the wedding. From walking down the aisle at just the right moment to making sure all of our gifts and decorations were brought to our home right after the wedding - no hiccups (or none that I knew of =P). Our guests were in awe at the decor and smooth execution of events. And all I could tell them was, "It wasn't my doing, it was my wedding planner." Cera and Danee, I can't thank you enough for making this day stress free and wonderful for us, our wedding party, and guests [= Cheers to you and your team!

If we could give more than 5 stars we would. The last thing we wanted for our wedding was stress and we had absolutely no stress.

We are thrilled beyond belief to be able to offer this review of Cera Singley Events. On behalf of both the Bride and the Bride, I want to first assure you that you can either have an all-inclusive planner/vendor with CS Events or you can just have the planning. You can have... Read More full on planning or day of. We choose something between Day Of Coordinator and Full Service Wedding Planning. The biggest factor in us hiring Cera was that she got the vision immediately. She knew we wanted to create something incredibly special and not wedding cookie cutter. She got us organized to gather those "all over the map thoughts". We had our own vision of what we wanted our caterer to provide and Cera provided her knowledge and experience as we selected the rentals and linens. When we lost our first caterer to a personal emergency with 8 months to go before the wedding, we tearily emailed her in the middle of the night in panic and wonder. She answered. We couldn't believe it. She bounced into action - sending more referrals our way. In the end, we found our caterer and was surprised at how seamless the transition was for the new one. Cera also handled our flowers for the event. We didn't need much because of the setting, but she knew exactly what to create because she got our vision. Our wedding was an incredibly special spiritual event with loads of things for our guests to do. We were really glad we spent the time to organize and get our checklist items done as quickly as we could because the week of the wedding was a blur. Cera patiently reminded both of us that our jobs were done and that she and her staff take our vision and bring it to life. To describe our nervousness for the wedding is hard - but knowing CS Events had it all under control seemed to quite the steely nerves. Cera - you have helped give us a lifetime of memories and if we could get married every single year to each other again, we'd hire you time and again. It is for all of these reasons, without any reservations, we would highly recommend your business and your business line to others. All the best - Dixie & Yesenia

Here's my honest opinion- Cera was a lifesaver! I initially hired her for more comprehensive wedding planning, but through a sad turn of events a close family member grew ill and eventually passed during our wedding planning. What was supposed to be a blissful year ended up... Read More being a rollercoaster of emotions, and Cera was there through it all. I was juggling so much I was often an MIA client, and when I appeared, I was in a rush - and Cera was there within minutes every time! Three weeks before our wedding we actually had to cancel and reschedule, and she managed all of the communication with our guests at a time when I could not. But the best part was the big day.... I'm an interior designer so I'm of course, particular - and holy cow Cera and her team exceeded my expectations on every level. Every single detail was painstakingly perfect, to the point where I still can't believe it to this day! Every cupcake display, every family photo, every napkin string, the timing of events, you name it. During our rehearsal, she was equal parts fun and 'whipcracker' (on a day when no one listens, let me tell you) - and on the day of she would appear and disappear at just the right moments. It is totally cliche to say I wish I could do it all over again and I would if I could! But not without Cera! :)
