Having the flexibility to be a mom and a wife while also following my dreams of becoming a wedding planner and getting to do what I love every day!
LOVE of course ;) Being able to celebrate one of the most intimate and special days with some of the most amazing couples! Being able to watch years of planning come to fruition. Being creative and allowing my love for planning, design, and people show through my work, the relationships I build with my couples, and the memories I get to be a part of for years to come!
"Courtney was truly amazing to work with! From the first time I met her she had a warm, approachable, and genuine spirit. Genuine was the one that most resonated with me. From talking about our budget she was very transparent (unlike other coordinators that I was getting quotes from and felt they were hiding something). As the months got closer to the big day she would ensure to reach out to have us fill out necessary questionnaires to share our vision. She was always timely to answer questions I had. Especially those days that I was having bride anxiety at like 11pm, but low and behold she would respond to my texts very fast or emails. (Very important (not to mention comforting) to have your coordinator respond in a timely manner). Fast forward to the month of and the week of the wedding. We talked almost every day! (No seriously!). She would ask questions or bring up things that I never even thought of. For example, the color of napkins, how do I want them folded for presentation purposes. Like down to those fine details she has the skill and vision for it! Count that covered when she coordinates your wedding. If you have a strict budget she is very resourceful and thinks outside of the box to still come up with Pinterest worthy ideas. Day of the wedding, she was flawless with the execution of the timeline, payment of vendors, and all in between. Still even finding time to bring rounds of drinks to the bridal party after the ceremony while we took family portraits. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Events by Courtney Ann. Essentially you will have made the best decision of your wedding planning process to hire Courtney!" - Jonathan & Megan Tarabini (October 2018) The Blue Victoria (Vezer Family Winery) | Fairfield, CA
