Kelsey + Ross had a gorgeous minimal wedding at their family friends pumpkin patch in Marietta, NY. Many guests knew this reception space as Tim’s pumpkin patch, a place where they would go for all their favorite fall activities. Everyone was thrilled to see how we had completely transformed the venue to lend to a more to a clean + simple, yet elegant feel with subtle hints of the autumn.
This wedding is one that is near and dear to my heart. Kelsey + Ross were one of my clients the very first year I started my event planning business. I still remember our initial phone call to discuss their wedding details, they were still 2 years out from their wedding date but saw the value in hiring a wedding planner due to their busy job schedules and the complication of their wedding venue. I knew after our first conversation that this couple was going to be one of the greatest.
Fast forward two years later on August 31, 2019, Kelsey + Ross finally said “I Do”! We could not believe how fast those years of planning for this very day went by.
Kelsey + Ross are some of the kindest people I have ever met. They were always so easy going , relaxed and trusting throughout the whole process of planning + designing their wedding. I am so incredibly grateful to have gotten to work with such a sweet couple and now have new lifelong friends!
Their wedding day was nothing shy of magical. The weather was sunny and warm with a cool breeze. There were so many amazing details of the day that fell into place perfectly. From the breathtaking scenic ceremony overlooking Otisco Lake to all the emerald greens covering the reception tent. The beautiful peacocks and adorable goats, floor to ceiling donut wall and who could forget the Irish dance performance to end the night. This wedding is one I will never forget. I couldn’t have pictured a more deserving couple for such a perfect day.
I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for this sweet couple, I know they will have a life filled with lots of love and happiness!
Congratulation Kelsey + Ross!

"My husband openly admits he originally thought hiring a wedding planner seemed like an unnecessary expense, now he’s is the first to say how wrong he was. Every detail was intentional and special. I had mentioned to Carianne my dad loved ice cream and before he passed away, we would always have special ice cream dates together. Carianne proceeded to make all my dreams come true and helped create a custom ice cream cart at our wedding. It meant the world to me and my family. Carianne is such a special person with an amazing gift for planning events. My husband and I are grateful for everything Carianne has done for us and we look forward to continuing a lifelong friendship with her."
"Carianne is the fairy godmother of weddings!"

"While Carianne helped us plan our wedding, she made sure to listen to every idea and was never afraid to tell us when something was unrealistic or if she felt there was something that would add to our vision. We are so grateful for the kindness and patience she showed. She worked to take the stress off of us and our families. We have no regrets from that weekend and we have her to thank for that. We don’t know what we would have done without her!"

"Carianne's strength is definitely executing on a wedding vision! With our busy, growing careers it was great to have her to touch base with vendors and bring so much peace of mind the day of. She has an eye for design!"

"My husband and I are NOT big wedding people... we ended up eloping last minute, 4 months before our wedding date! Carianne was so excited for us and went with the flow. She took everything in stride! She helped us plan and execute our local wedding reception and gave us so many great ideas and tips. My entire family gushed about her the next day! I am certain that we couldn't have pulled off the most perfect wedding reception without her help. I think every bride needs a coordinator, and I'm recommending Carianne to everyone!"
"Carianne was so easy and wonderful to work with!"

“ I came to Carianne with only three months left to plan my wedding and in need of some serious help! She asked questions I didn’t think of and her ideas were magical. During the process, she made sure things were going smoothly and stayed within my budget while still making my Pinterest dreams come to life! My parents are forever grateful for her coming and taking a huge weight off their shoulders. It was the best day of my entire life and Carianne made that happen!”

"From the moment we met Carianne, we knew we trusted her to help us execute our perfect wedding day. She was so helpful throughout the planning process, checked in frequently, and even helped us find vendors. When our wedding weekend arrived, she was so helpful and stayed to work out every detail the day before the wedding. I knew I didn't have to worry or even think about how a thing because she took care of everything. It was such a help to myself, my husband, and our families to have Carianne there to take care of all the details. You would be crazy to not hire Carianne for any event you may have!
