I cannot say enough nice things about Carla. She was amazing! My mom and I love her! She was so incredibly helpful and well organized. She had great ideas and recommendations. She knows her wedding planning! She was so calm and had things under control on our wedding day. I am so grateful that Carla was our wedding coordinator. I highly recommend Carla! (Plus, she is a super nice person!)Aug 22, 2018
Carla was great! She was always availible to meet and discuss plans. She was very involved in all of my details. Carla was professional and kept things in line on the day of the wedding. Carla is a great extension to your wedding planning, if you do not want to stress about the little details, the 'what goes where', keeping track of the wedding party, etc....carla is your gal!!Oct 14, 2014
For my Wedding Carla assisted the planning of the ceremony, the reception and my vision. I had a list of four things that were a must for my big day. But I knew there were things I didn't want to overlook, so I hired Carla to help bring my vision together. I expected Carla would be there for me on my big day, but what I did not expect was the calmness she brought to the day. I didn't realize how quickly things can go in many different directions on the special day and have Carla involved in the planning helped to make sure my vision was carried through. Carla is professional, produces quality work, and I would hire her to plan my next event!Oct 24, 2014
Carla is absolutely amazing and was the difference between an unorganized wedding day and a fabulous event! My husband and I have large families with lots of opinions and requests. Carla worked closely with us throughout the planning process to bring structure, organization and a plan for the day of our event, all while making everyone feel like their opinions were valued. She did more than "day of work," Carla worked with us to select and track vendors, she made calls to confirm guest attendance for late RSVP'ers, she put together our day of timeline, and reviewed all of our wedding stationary. Carla was right on time with everything from her late night email reminders, Pinterest messages and words of encouragement. She was my sounding board and helped to make my vision come to life. Most importantly and most appreciated was Carla's support on the day of the wedding. Having Carla available to manage the flow of the day, oversee pictures, guide guests, time the ceremony processional, manage vendors and all of last minute requests, allowed me, my family and my closest friends to enjoy every moment of the day. Trusting that everything would be taken care of was a gift, there is no one I would have rather entrusted that responsibility to than Carla from Fabulous Functions. I can't say enough about what a difference she made in the success of our day. Thank you Carla!Oct 14, 2014
Carla definitely did what she was hired to do and helped us stay on a strict timeline during our wedding. She was even reasonably priced in comparison to other day-of-coordinators. However, her attitude could use some adjustments. People in my wedding party were terrified that she would yell at them or even put them in "time-out." It is important to be stern because of the strict timeline on your wedding day but you do not need to treat people badly, we are all human. She was very nice to the bride on the day of but, again, pretty rough on everyone else.Aug 16, 2017Fabulous Functions by Carla's reply
Thank you for the review. I'm sorry that your wedding party felt that way. It would be easier to respond if I knew exactly which wedding this was. I appreciate your review and will use this review to better my business.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Although you can cover a lot of ground by emailing or speaking on the telephone, there is nothing like face to face contact. I always encourage potential clients to meet me for coffee. During an in-person meeting we are able to get to know each other better. Perhaps there is a chemistry there, or we find something we have in common. It also lets me get a better idea of what you desire for your celebration and how I might be able to make that happen.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always loved entertaining, whether it be a family holiday celebration in my home or a birthday party for a loved one. One day I saw a friend talking about her upcoming wedding on Facebook. I reached out to her, and asked if she had a planner. She was the most amazing, detailed bride. She had everything laid out, all I had to do was execute it. The day after the wedding I woke up exhausted, but so excited. I knew that being an event planner was my calling. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I love.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have worked with young brides, older brides and corporate executives,
