    Cherie is very friendly, easy-going & knowledgable in her field. We are glad she understands our needs & our timeframe on our wedding planning, even though the timing is very tight. She was kind & kept in touch with us to make sure we were on track with everything we needed for our wedding plans. We look forward to working with her & value her suggestions.

    Cherie is great at listening to your needs and offering suggestions. On the day of the wedding her calm yet assertive demeanor kept things in order and helped out very much. Everything went smoothly!!

    Cherie was amazing!!! Right from our very first meeting she made us feel at ease about the wedding. She came to rehearsal and she did a great job getting everyone on the right track, making sure everyone understood their roles. She also made sure we were satisfied with amount to time we rehearsed the walk and ceremony practices. During the wedding, she was a rockstar and adjusted to every change on the schedule and details. She made sure everything is in its proper place and on the right time. She made me and my now husband relaxed all through out the event. We were very particular about choosing our coordinator . We interviewed a good amount and I assure you she is the best choice.

    Cherie is such a fantastic wedding coordinator and planner! My wedding is tomorrow and I feel so well-prepared because of all the time and effort Cherie has put into it! She's incredibly creative and open to ideas. She's very knowledgable about the flower district and constructing a bouquet. And she has provided me with a very calm and encouraging attitude. I trust that my wedding will be amazing and beautiful because Cherie is making it exactly what I want! She's just awesome! I would definitely book her again!!!

    Cherie was amazing for my wedding! I had a crazy bunch for my bridal party and she knew how to keep things moving and answered every question we had ( even when the question was asked like ten times!) Cherie kept everyone calm and did so much to make sure we were all happy! The whole Riley family really makes you feel like family. Highly recommend Cherie!

    Cherie was amazing!! First off, she is the sweetest woman in the world. Our day went so smooth and we could not have had such an amazing time if it weren't for her. I was not stressing about the details or worried something wasn't right while getting ready in the bridal room, and that comfort knowing it was all being taken care of made a huge difference. I was able to focus on my fiance and really enjoyed my day. So, you should stop reading this review and hire Cherie before she books up because she is the one you want on your wedding day.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Basic packages for Wedding Day Coordinating start at $950.00. This includes all travel, expenses and some planning.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first step is to set up a phone or personal visit to get to know a little about the bride and groom. It's important for me to understand what they need in order to give an accurate quote.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
BA in Organizational Management Over a decade of work in design Custom corsetry and clothing design
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Planning is just part of life and something I've always enjoyed. In the beginning I was planning family events, friends weddings, and worked as a venue coordinator. I found that personal coordinating is much more rewarding. I am able to customize my work to fit the needs of any family and wedding style
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with couples and families from all over Southern California. Each from a unique background and family story.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
As a personal wedding planner it is my opinion that every bride needs a coordinator by her side at least for the last week and the day of the wedding. I would love to be that person but if not me then please hire someone else who can take the burden of stress off of you and your family so you can truly enjoy your day.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Think carefully about what services you need. Have an idea of budget before talking to professionals but be flexible, you may not always understand all the time that goes into any project. Be ready to ask specific question.
