Testimonials for Caroline

Special Video Testimonial – Keith Thornal, Father of the Bride

Trying to express in a few words how incredibly impressed and grateful I am for all that Caroline did to make Meaghan and John’s day the most memorable event in their lives is an impossible task. When I think of Caroline, there are so many words that come to mind: composed, organized, professional, caring, knowledgeable, communicative, sincere, dedicated, passionate, diligent…she is an absolute gift to anyone blessed enough to have the opportunity to work with her. From day one, Caroline far exceeded my expectations in every aspect of this incredible journey, and her easygoing, kind, caring nature made this process a complete joy. She is a gifted planner who made everything appear effortless and I had complete confidence in her ability to ensure that the wedding was spectacular. And spectacular it was! The room was breathtaking and the guests were in awe of every detail. The single, best decision I made was hiring Caroline and I cannot imagine planning a wedding without her. I am excited that I have two more daughters that will have the pleasure of experiencing the true Godsend that Caroline is.”

Donna Watters, Mother of the Bride

Caroline, How do we even put into words how much you mean to us? Without you, our special wedding weekend would be nowhere near the same. We feel incredible blessed to have your involvement, love and support on our side. You have made every decision painless, every detail perfect, every person welcomed and every moment magical. And one of the best parts about all of this is knowing that we’ve grown an even stronger friendship with you along the way. xo,”

Elissa Fairchild and Andrew Monaco, Bride and Groom

Caroline is UN-REAL! I have never been more impressed with someone. She is extremely organized, very prompt, amazing at communication and makes you feel like top priority. She has made this experience a dream. I never have to worry about a payment or scheduling meetings as she lets me know the minute anything needs to be done.

I interviewed other planners who were twice her age with a lot of experience and I didn’t feel like they connected to my vision or communicated efficiently, she did both of these. My mother and future mother-in-law were both extremely impressed by her and reiterated how lucky I am to have her.

My future in-laws are from Switzerland and being so far away it was hard for them to plan the rehearsal. My future MIL flew in and had a chance to meet with Caroline. She was so impressed that she hired her for our rehearsal dinner and other events we are hosting in Dallas. She is such a doll and I am sad to not work with her more. You really can’t go wrong-and I am brutally honest:).

Caroline takes pride in seeing your vision / dream and making it a reality.”

Mary Summers Hafner, Bride

We wanted to say a quick thank you for everything you did to make our wedding last night absolutely amazing. I honestly don’t think we would have changed a single thing about the wedding, which is truly a testament to your amazing work (slash magic? Haha). Thanks so much for not only helping keep my mom calm throughout the process, but also allowing her to have an awesome time planning and feeling such pride and ownership for the beautiful event.

We want you to know how much we appreciate your hard work and will absolutely be recommending you to anyone and everyone who asks! Love,”

Meaghan Watters and John Pedersen, Bride and Groom

Caroline, Thank you so much for all of your help on our big day. I think the biggest compliment I can say about you is that after helping us through our whole wedding, I still don’t know what your taste is. That is true customer service: only worrying about what we wanted. You have found your calling.

Thanks again for everything!”

Andrew Wilson, Groom

Dear Caroline, Words are inadequate to express how very grateful we are for all you and Hattie did to make Christina and Florian’s wedding the magical event it was! So many people have told me it was the best wedding they’d ever been to and I certainly wouldn’t disagree.

Since we first started planning the wedding a year ago, you’ve been our advisor, counselor, conceptor, sounding board, fountain of ideas and recommendations, negotiator, proofreader, logistician and chief procurement person, among other thing.

You are so very good at what you do, Caroline, and I still marvel at how you can be so young and so good. We are the lucky beneficiaries of your talent and dedication.”

Edie and Bo, Parents of the Bride

Dear Caroline, Where to begin? Thank you so much for making our wedding day absolutely PERFECT! Your professionalism, patience, attention to detail, and seemingly endless knowledge made planning our wedding so much easier. And we were blown away by the end result.

Wedding planning from an ocean away is inevitably tough, but having you on the ground made us feel comfortable and at ease. We also really appreciate that you were able to attend appointments with mom, and she wasn’t entirely orphaned during the process.

Your and Hattie’s support on the big day was especially appreciated. You set it up so that all we had to do was be in the moment with friends and family. Everything else was taken care of – often before we ever knew there was anything to handle.

You are the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Danke! Merci! Grazie!”

Christian and Florian, Bride and Groom

Dear Caroline, You and Hattie are the best! Thank you so much for creating two such perfect weddings. You covered all the details with ease, kept us on track and make everything beautiful, fun and unique. The weddings were fabulous due to your efforts, and we’re sincerely grateful. Best wishes for continued success. ”

Leslie Conant, Mother of the Bride

Your calmness, your presence and your heart of gold made the wedding of Mia and Blake a fairytale – it turned out PERFECT! It was better than my wildest dreams! And YOU are the girl behind the scenes making Chip and I look like rock stars! I love, love, love you!”

Maria Wittern, Mother of the Bride

Caroline, Thank you for everything you did to prepare for Betsy and Arturo’s special day! Your planning and organization skills are remarkable, but your follow through is really what counts. Your sweet, calm spirit has been a blessing and I’m thankful the Lord led us to you! You helped make the weekend fun, relaxing and memorable so we could enjoy and not worry. You have a special talent and we appreciate you sharing. Will miss chatting on a regular basis!”

Kerrie Campbell and Betsy Rodriguez, Mother of the Bride and Bride

Thank you for making this day so special for Ross and I. You exceeded my expectations tenfold. It was so nice to get to enjoy celebrating while you took care of all the memorable details. You have such amazing gifts and Ross and I are so grateful! Much love.”

Kensey Gilbert and Ross Rabun, Bride and Groom

You were absolutely AMAZING and we would have been nut cases without you. The best decision we made the whole wedding process was hiring you. We are so thankful for you sending us to all the best vendors; we loved every single person we worked with. Please tell me where I can go on the internet to sing your praises! We’re so sad we don’t get to work with you anymore.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Rebecca and Sam Elam, Bride and Groom

Caroline, I must tell you that you were absolutely fantastic and Mary Jane and I could not be more thankful. I hope there is some way I can serve as a meaningful reference, write a letter, help in any way. You were so kind, took care of every detail, did it with a smile and helpful spirit…just fantastic. We always dreamed of giving our daughter a wonderful gift of a beautiful wedding and you were a big part of that gift! You will never know how much we appreciated your efforts and hospitality to our guests and family.

Thank you.”

Jeff Turner, Father of the Bride

There is NO WAY words can express how thankful and grateful I am for you. You’ve truly made my wedding planning process fun, easy and just all around perfect. You have a true talent and I would recommend you to the world. I can’t believe we’ve worked together for a year and I look forward to working with you again for my daughter’s wedding. :) Thank you, thank you, thank you for absolutely every little thing!

XOX!”

Lindsey Perry Kennemer, Bride and Groom

There are no words to describe how grateful family and I are to have worked with Caroline Fair in Lauren and Matthew’s wedding at the Crescent Hotel, Dallas. We adore her so much!!!  Caroline is a wonderful, calm, oh-so-elegant, fun, classy, clear thinker…I could go on-and-on!!!  My daughter’s wedding resonated with me as someone who has very little leisure time; for my work, monthly travels to Europe is not unusual. At the announcement of my daughter’s engagement to her fiance, I was ready to hit the panic button, until a friend recommended I contact Caroline.  Everything – truly E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G – from the very beginning to the flawless end, including the provision of a greatly detailed agenda of the wedding festivities from start to finish, behind-the-scenes work with our vendors, details on wedding etiquette, vendors’ responsibilities, as well as, the bridal luncheon and rehearsal gatherings. Again, I could go on and on. The work Caroline and Ashley put in – the dedication, the commitment, the precious detailed care – to make my daughter’s wedding a beautiful success will always remain a cherished memory for me and my family. Wedding guests commented how incredulously the special evening was. To us, it was magical, beautiful and perfect in every way!!! Thank you so much for making this very special time so incredible!!!”

Karen Baker, Mother of the Bride

Caroline, I want to thank you so much for everything you did for us throughout the wedding planning process and on the big day. Everything turned out perfect – exactly how I pictured it and I would not have changed one thing! And I could not have done any of it without you. Thank you for keeping everything organized and on schedule. Everything went so smoothly and it made a huge difference that my mom and I didn’t have to worry about a thing the day of. You are so organized, professional, sweet, reassuring, and so calming to talk to when wedding planning can get overwhelming at times! You are the best wedding planner! If anyone ever wants a reference, pass my info to them – I would love to recommend and share all the good things about you (like so many people did for me).”

Lauren Martin and Andrew Summersett, Bride and Groom

Caroline, Thank you again for the wonderful job you did! You made our party easy and special! Much love and appreciation.”

Debra Miller, Social Event Client

Caroline, I am still in complete amazement at what an incredible celebration you put together! Truly, your expertise is unbelievable, but your calm, caring demeanor during the entire time of planning the event and at the wedding was beyond my imagination!

Honestly, the little bit of time I was able to spend with you helped me understand why Mary was so calm throughout the entire process. Your hand to hold provided the kind of support that we were all grateful for.

Watching my daughter so happy on what should be one of the happiest days of her life, (but all too often becomes one of the most stressful days in a girl’s life), is the greatest gift one could ever receive. I could never thank you enough for sharing that gift with me.

I will look forward to having lunch with you in Dallas when Mary returns from her Honeymoon. Until then, I send my heartiest congratulations on a “job well done,” but more importantly many thanks for your friendship over the last year. You will be a treasured part of this family always!

With Much Love & Gratitude.”

Marlene Summers, Mother of the Bride

What an outstanding evening. You both worked so hard to make this event a huge success. As always, I loved working with you.
Dinner turned out better than good. And Nando–mesmerizing. Again, thank you for all you did to make this such an outstanding event.”

Carol Seay, The Cooper Institute’s Illuminating New Perspectives Event Co-Chair in reference to Connie Tyne and Caroline Fair

Caroline, I wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful wedding weekend.  You and Ashley truly outdid yourselves, and I honestly could not have imagined a more perfect event.  I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for us over the past 13+ months.  It honestly turned out even better than I ever could have imagined!

Thank you so incredibly much for absolutely everything!  You have such an incredible gift and are so talented!  I look forward to being able to work with you again in the future or at the very least recommend you to everyone I know :) .”

Lindsey Kneipper Richards, Bride

Dear Caroline, Thank you for going above and beyond during the wedding planning. It has been such a fun and exciting year and you have been so instrumental in making it that way. We sincerely appreciate your kindness, enthusiasm and attention to detail.”

Cindy and Tony Weber, Alex Weber McGowen, Family of the Bride

Dear Caroline, Chris and I were so glad to have you be part of our wedding! We really appreciate all that you did to make it such a perfect and flawless day. I was so impressed with you throughout the entire process. I can’t wait to share with others about your wonderful work. You truly went above and beyond. I can’t wait to see the bright future for Caroline Events. Thanks for making 12.15.12 such an AMAZING day for us!”

Abby Baer and Chris Hines, Bride and Groom

Dear Caroline, Thank you so much for all you did to help us pull together a dream wedding. Working with you was fun and easy and we always felt so comfortable that everything was under control. As the mother of the bride, one of my main goals was not to worry about the reception during the ceremony and to feel like a guest at the reception. With you in charge I had no worries and I had a ball at the reception. I was so sad it had to end! Feel free to give anyone our phone number or email too if they want a direct referral.”

Cheryl Baumann, Mother of the Bride

Caroline, Wow, what a special weekend. Rebecca and Ryan were so happy and everything was so much fun. You did such a great job making it all run so smoothly…your calm and thorough planning and implementation of everything this weekend made it such a memorable and enjoyable time. I kept thinking this is too easy and going too smoothly we must be forgetting something, but that was not the case.”

Glen Wiley, Father of the Bride

Dear Caroline, I can’t thank you enough or express our complete gratitude to you for truly making our wedding day everything we dreamed of and more. Words can’t describe how grateful we are for all the support, guidance, and reassurance you’ve given us over the last year. Your kindness, patience, and knowledge continually amazed us. You have gone above and beyond as our wedding planner and we are excited for all that lies ahead for you and Caroline Events. I hope our friendship continues to blossom after our wedding. Thank you!”

Heather Lange and Sam Cole, Bride and Groom

Dear Caroline, It was such a pleasure working with you. I love how organized, calm, and efficient you are and I will always be thankful that you were willing to “step in” when we needed someone to guide us. Thanks again!”

Julie Logan, Mother of the Bride

Caroline, We can’t thank you enough for all your time and efforts for our wonderful wedding. You made it easy from the start to the finish. Your diligence and hard work made the night a great success. We will recommend you to anyone we know getting married. Hugs to you!”

Taylor Miller Collinsworth, Bride and Brenda and Dean Miller, Parents of the Bride

Caroline you sincerely made the last month up to Heather and Sam’s wedding seem effortless. The day of we were free to enjoy every moment knowing you were there watching over all the details. What a wonderful day and night we all had. A great big thank you!”

Susan and Tom Lange, Parents of the Bride

There are no words that adequately express our gratitude for all Caroline did for us in planning and executing Keni and Chase’s wedding. It was such a pleasure to work with her–she was always positive, always excited, always kind.

She had to wear many hats in helping us with the wedding: interior decorator setting up the personalized decorations we had gathered for the reception. On the wedding day as severe weather moved in, she helped us come up with a solution to handle the reception parking situation. Our church’s wedding coordinator became ill on the day of the rehearsal and she stepped in and got everyone where they needed to be and was so helpful doing something where I specifically had said I wasn’t going to need her help…She followed through with every provider, corresponded with the wedding party, responded in a timely fashion to each of our calls/emails. She was organized and always did what she said she would do when she said she would do it. She even provided transportation home for the mother of the groom who was accidentally left at the reception. AND probably did more than I will ever know behind the scenes.

How she could be so many places on Saturday I will never know!<br
Caroline is professional and never pushy. She never made us feel guilty for not doing the extras that add up. She helped us stay within our budget while implementing Keni and Chase’s ideas.

And that was just one daughter’s wedding. 15 months ago she helped my oldest daughter plan and implement her wedding with a 3 ½ month engagement. After 6 weeks of thinking I could do it myself, I realized I needed help. When she read the contracts I already had signed and told me things that were needed, I knew her services were worth way more than I could ever pay her!

Both daughters’ weddings were completely different but so expertly coordinated by Caroline! Both brides trusted her, enjoyed her, and were so thankful for her help!

I only wish I had another daughter to plan a wedding with…”

Nancy Turner, Mother of the Bride

Caroline, I wanted to tell you what a fantastic job you did. I truly enjoyed the evening, knowing that is was all in very good hands. I feel like you just waited on us totally. I will be recommending you to everyone.

Truly, this is your passion, because you do it effortlessly, and you just know what needs to be done next. Thank you for all the promptings and reminders to be where we were supposed to be. You also got all the pictures out and set up beautifully, and the bouquets situated perfectly. I can’t believe how well the whole night went!!!”

Cindy Abbate, Mother of the Bride

Caroline, You are truly spectacular! Detail oriented, calm, sweet and joyful describe the wonderful qualities you held when working with you during this special time in our life. The schedule and checklist you prepared helped my family, wedding party and me enormously. As one of the groomsmen said, ‘I really like how your planner was relaxed, but in charge.’ You were truly a joy to work with and I appreciate everything you did for our wedding!”

Skyler Renschler Baty, Bride

Caroline, Thank you for every little thing you’ve done for me and for my wedding! You have truly gone above and beyond any expectations! You have made this process so much more enjoyable and I cannot thank you enough!”

Rebecca Wiley Schultz, Bride

Caroline, Thank you so much for everything! The wedding was perfect; I wouldn’t have changed one thing! Obviously, a huge part of that was you. Mark and I appreciated everything you did. You went above and beyond and we hope you enjoyed the wedding as much as we did.”

Emily Chou and Mark Gemina, Bride and Groom

Caroline, Thank you for everything you did on behalf of the bride and groom and our families. Everything was absolutely perfect. You were so capable, oversaw every detail and were a calm voice in the midst of the weekend festivities. Wonderful job! Thank you for everything! I hope to work with you again when our daughter Jacque gets married.”

Keri Baty, Mother of the Groom

From the first time I met Caroline, I was instantly impressed with her easy going personality, organization and creative ideas. Before we hired her to be our planner, she visted our venue (which is almost two hours away) so she would be familiar with our event. That detail, along with all her other qualities were what sold me to hire her. Through these last six months of planning, she has been so helpful and responsive, and I’m not sure I’d still be sane and on track without her. I am certain the most important day of our lives will be flawless because of her help!”

Lauren Calame, Bride

Caroline has gone above and beyond in planning the most important day of our lives. Her creativity, professionalism and attention to detail in preparing for our wedding has surpassed our expectations and made us even more excited for the big day to arrive. Her outing personality and ability to handle any situation have put us at ease during the months leading up to the ceremony. We trust her skills, judgement, and character and we can’t be more excited that she is making this journey even more beautiful for us and our family.”

Morgan and Jay Behrens, Bride and Groom

My heart is always calmer after my times with you. Other MOBs need to have the pleasure of working with you. When trying to balance my schedule and all the wedding-to-do’s I can sometimes feel overwhelmed. Just talking to you last night made me feel confident that everything was going to work out. You are such a great listener and at the same time you are thoughtfully making plans for what needs to be done next. All I cans say is that I am so thankful to have you on my team, Caroline. I have no need to be overwhlemed when you are helping me. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate your talents of planning and organization.”

Barb Mullen, Mother of the Bride
