If you are in need of a full service wedding planner look no further because Caitlyn Wiseman is the best of the best. From our first phone call we knew she would perfectly execute our vision for our wedding and we were not wrong. I’m not sure h...
ow she has any free time because Caitlyn was always extremely prompt in answering our questions and when we first hired her she immediately got all of our vendors booked and put our minds at ease. For the next year and a half she would answer my million emails or hop on a phone call as needed. Caitlyn was always calm and is just so knowledgeable about the entire wedding industry. She got us the best vendor team I think there is out there and everyone from the hair and makeup team to the florist to the photographer were just top notch. The week of the wedding we had virtually no stress because we knew we were in good hands with Caitlyn. Then, on the wedding day she not only was coordinating with our venue and rental company but was checking in on me and my husband, flat laying details, coordinating with the photographer and socializing with our families and friends, she truly does it all. Caitlyn also stayed throughout our whole event and brought everything back to our hotel for us, she is truly such a gem and had our back throughout our entire planning process. I am sad that our time with her is done but know that she is going to have so many beautiful more weddings in the future. If you want my advice, run don’t walk to book CW Events and Designs for your wedding!

We wholeheartedly recommend Caitlyn Ward (CW Events & Design) for your wedding or any other event. She is an honest & caring professional, who is passionate about her work. From the moment that we met her, we were impressed by her professional...
ism, her exceptional organizational skills for the all of the special features of the wedding and her very genuine passion for her work. She never stopped smiling and was a wonderful advocate for every detail between us and all of the vendors. Our daughter, Chrissy F. married Jimmy M. on Sept. 28, 2109 at an Boho-themed, outdoor wedding venue. Caitlyn had each moment and detail perfectly planned for both beautiful and inclement weather. Every part of the day and evening, came together seamlessly. From the wedding invitations to the wedding photographer, the flowers, the food, even the introduction of the wedding party etc., flowed without a worry for any of us. I highly recommend Caitlyn and her company. Truly honest, trustworthy and genuine professionalism is very hard to find these days. You will worry about nothing when Caitlyn is in charge.

ing Caitlyn. As someone who was initially on the fence about whether or not I necessarily "needed" a wedding planner due to my non-extensive nor elaborate budget, I'm glad I trusted my gut and am SO thankful I found Caitlyn. If you're getting married and reading this with the same internal thought as you're planning your wedding, hire Caitlyn and you will be so glad you did. She is extremely kind and accommodating and will do anything she can to help you. She's very organized, dependable, quick to reply, and you can trust that she will nail down any detail that you could possibly forget due to the very real phenomenon that is 'wedding brain'. Caitlyn is one of the most down to earth people we have ever met. She's a go-getter, yet is not entitled in any shape or form. In addition to the vast planning she does, she also will get her hands dirty on the day of your wedding, fanny-pack and all, in order to make sure that you have the most perfect day of your life with NO stress. She literally SAVED our wedding (i.e.ceremony venue drama) and if it weren't for her keeping things under control from the rehearsal when the problem started and on-ward to the day of the wedding, I would have been so stressed throughout the days leading up to the moment my dad and I walked down the aisle. However, knowing that Caitlyn was inside taking care of everything put my mind at ease. Everyone in our wedding party/ family loved her as well, and were attentive to her direction as well as trusted everything she said and did. She just has a great presence and personality, I can't even explain it fully- but all I know is she is most definitely rare to come by in the wedding industry and I couldn't imagine working with anyone else. FCW and CW Events + Design are a true power team and they are so lucky to have her- but I'm sure they already know that. Caitlyn, I feel so blessed to have met you. Thank you so much for all your help and support throughout the past nine months. It has been a pleasure to work with you, get to know you, and I now consider you a friend. I'm inspired by your gift and talent, and I cannot wait to see all your many successes to come.
