Jeff and his team provided amazing service and a delicious meal for our company picnic on Labor Day. Our annual company conference was held in Nashville this year with employees coming in from all across the US so it is a pretty important event for us. CJ's was on time, earlier even than us to the location to setup and they served the food hot and on time. The staff was courteous and made sure anything we needed was made available. They even went above and beyond to provide a vegan dish for our few special dietary requirements at no additional charge! The BBQ chicken and brisket were delicious and I didn't hear one complaint about the meal, which is not easy for such a diverse crowd. I would not hesitate to use CJ's Catering again in the future and highly recommend them!!

Jan was such a gem to work with and the food was spot on. She created a menu to please our guests and Executives. As our functions were out of town, she took out the stress and hassle and made me look like a hero!

Heather was a lifesaver for me! I had to pull together a corporate event in 2 weeks time, and she more than delivered! She found us great caterers and handled everything I needed! She took so much pressure off, and our event came together beautifully and ran so smoothly! I will be keeping heather in mind for future events, not only for our company, but for personal events as well! Beautiful job!

Naomi was a dream to work with!! She has amazing pricing, great vision, and listened to all of my wants. She handled all of my floral needs, decorations, set up, planning, and day of coordinating. Everything was even more beautiful than I could have imagined!! My venue forgot the chair covers, but Naomi was on top of it and I never even saw a chair without one on it. I highly recommend her for all of your wedding needs!!

We couldn't have done it without Brigett. So worth it. We hired her last minute and she pulled it all together with only 4 weeks until the wedding. Thank you!

Wow! Ludlow did a FANTASTIC job catering my company's corporate event.

Of course, I have not scheduled an actual event through Ms. Gaines but, I work with her on the daily basis. I can say without hesitation the energy, time, dedication, community (essential) and finagling to get the best for her perspective client(s) is a priority to her. Therefore, if you are seeking a professional and eager event planner give Ms Gaines an opportunity.

    I had the pleasure of working with Chef Sean for an appreciation dinner I hosted for a few special friends. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Chef Sean was more than prepared with his own cookware, utensils, seasonings, and all the extras that added a special touch. He came early to my home to prep and came back later to complete the meal. Everything was fresh and right on time. I would not change a thing. He is the expert and made all things seem simple. It was a small, intimate event, however Sean gave me the same treatment as if I was a big time client. I would recommend Chef Sean for any style event. He is sure to please!

    Aundrea was awesome!!! I was working in Texas and wanted to have my daughters’ sweet 16 family dinner in her hometown,Nashville ,with friends and family. I didn’t know how I would pull it off being so far away. I found Aundrea online on thumbtack. She was the first to call and sounded enthusiastic to do the job. I looked at her reviews and they were all excellent. I told her my vision and she delivered 120% . We had the dinner at a restaurant and she handled all the coordinating of the events and the services relating to the restaurant staff. The decorations were exactly what I ask for!! I saw ideas online and in magazines and she put them together perfectly!!! I was nervous because I never met her in person until the day of the dinner!! I was praying it wasn’t gonna be a nightmare as I had paid her a deposit and had never done an event without meeting the person! She delivered!! I asked for a videographer and she arranged for all of that as well. Not to mention the videographer got all the memorable moments when I surprised my daughter with her first vehicle!! Those moments in action ,of her being surprised, and the excitement seen from all the quests will never be forgotten and I will have the video to cherish forever!!! I will definitely use Aundrea for ANY big or small events I plan in the future ( my 50th birthday is coming up next year -wink wink). I planned for 30 guests and they all were impressed with the decor and entire flow of the dinner party. Later I found out she recently bought a travel agency where she can come to anyone , anywhere and plan an event. Now that’s awesome!!! Aundrea, you rock!! And I will definitely recommend you to friends and family!! I’m glad you’re in Nashville as that’s my primary residence. The price was well worth every penny ! I believe in that saying “ you get what you pay for “ I wish you continued success in your business , Aundrea. GOD BLESS YOU! Annie

    Libby is very good about listening to exactly what you are looking for and offers suggestions depending on your needs. She has dealt with many venues for an array of events and had suggestions available if you're undecided on location as well. Creativity and professional service are two key words to describe Libby' s services. I would recommend her for any upcoming event.

    I am cake baker and recently had a Wedding Cake Showcase and sampling. Although i can create beauty out of fondant and buttercream i lack the creativity inarea of decorative display and design. So, i contacted C and C events and Christen was who decorate my display table at the showcasing event. I had explained i had a tight budget. And she was able to work magic. She did not disappoint, she created a beautiful display that really set my cakes a part. The colors, theme and elegant touches where perfect for the occasion. I will definitely use C and C Events in the future.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a wedding planner?

    A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

    How much does it cost for a wedding planner?

    Wedding planning is a full-time job — unless you hire a professional to handle the hard work for you. The cost for a wedding planner will depend on the level of service you desire. The least expensive wedding planner option is day-of coordination, then partial service, then full-service.  

    The national average cost for wedding planning is between $990 and $1,300. Costs are greatly affected by region, with rural or smaller-town wedding planners often far more affordable than planners in higher-cost cities. Here are some examples of the various levels of wedding planning and their potential average costs:

    • Day-of-wedding coordination: $800-$1,700. Day-of services can include the planner finalizing all details, creating a timeline, confirming vendors and overseeing all setup, day-of activities, and cleanup. The couple does all the front-end planning and contracts all the vendors. Time commitment could be about 15-25 hours, depending on pricing.
    • Partial service: $1,500-$3,800. Here the planner works with the couple from the beginning, helping contract vendors, creating a timeline, and overseeing all details of day-of execution. Time commitment could be about 30-60 hours, depending on package and pricing.
    • Full service: $3,500-$8,000 or more. Here the professional handles all wedding and planning details including working on design, securing rentals, getting the venue and vendors, and handling complete execution of the event. Time commitment could be 50-150 hours or more, depending on package and pricing.
    • Consulting: $50-$150 per hour for design, vendor, reception and other wedding planning consultation.
