"I was the kind of bride that contemplated whether I needed a wedding planner or not and I can’t say enough how relieved I am to have hired Courtney! She exceeded our expectations during the planning stages by being responsive, offering suggestions, and just being there when we needed her. She was our month of coordinator but she assisted well in advance to make sure our timeline was perfect. I honestly don’t know what we would’ve done without her!"

BELLA MONTAGNA WEDDING
"When my boss offered his private estate to us the prospect of a destination wedding with 6 months planning seemed like a daunting if not impossible task. Being an event planner in Austin I briefly considered attempting it myself with the help of some “day of” coordination. As the reality of the logistics grew I’m so happy there was someone to not only keep us on track but also mediate our differences, dissolve conflicts and provide overall emotional support. Out of all your wedding expenses a coordinator isn’t a tangible thing your guests will see so your initial thoughts are to spend a little as possible so you can spend more on your big day, but as soon as you realize how integral she is to the overall success of the event you soon realize she’s the most vital and well spent expenditure of the entire proceedings. Courtney’s level of professionalism really came to light through her punctuality. There was never a second when we thought things weren’t being handled quickly and prompt responses were always there. She was also very thorough in her vetting of potential vendors for our day. She found as many options as possible in our price range and provided her thoughts but ultimately left the decision making process to us. Courtney also did so many extra things and personal touches not required in her contract and it really made us feel her vested interest in our happiness. By rehearsal time we had spent so much time communicating we felt like long time pen pals meeting for the first time. Our families welcomed her like one of our own and she reciprocated with feeling that can’t be faked or purchased. Our day of celebrations went of without a hitch thanks to her experience and amazing timeline. She constantly checked on our well-being and happiness of us and our guests throughout the night and quietly put out any fires that occurred. Her ability to do all of this without hesitation shows that she’s not only good at her job but also an amazing person and to have to say goodbye to that had definitely been the hardest part of this entire venture. We’ve made a friend for life and we’re already dreaming up future celebrations to find an excuse to include her in it again"

PRIVATE ESTATE WEDDING
"Planning a wedding is no easy feat. From the guest list to the decor, there are so many details that can often be overlooked and overpriced. For us, though, one thing we knew that would be extremely important, was having amazing vendors that would not only capture our special moment, but also be a part of our magical day. These vendors would consist of team members - being just as stoked as we were - celebrating all of our love, with us. Courtney was just that. We had done a lot of research on coordinators, and Courtney came recommended from a friend. Not only were her rates competitive, but she embodied the most excitement in the opportunity to be a part of our wedding day - we knew she was the best fit. Courtney was helping coordinate our wedding well-before our wedding day. She was beyond professional with feedback and extremely prompt in email response. More than that though, she was always so quick to provide a solution to an issue or provide an additional hand to help relieve any wedding stress. Courtney went above and beyond to coordinate our vendors and ensure we were having a truly magical and romantic day. She is amazing and beyond poised in any situation - even 30 mph winds on a wedding day). We could not be more happy with how our day went and we owe a lot of that happiness to Courtney! Thank you for helping bring to life our magical wedding day!"

PARK WINTERS WEDDING
My husband and I hired Courtney to coordinate/set-up our wedding reception. Courtney went above and beyond our expectations. Very detail oriented, response time to emails and text is amazingly quick, which puts you at ease. The venue decor set-up was perfect. The coordination of vendors - all vendors were where they were suppose to be. We had no trouble with the vendors or any decor falling apart. I would 100% hire Courtney if I were to have an anniversary party and needs to help with coordination/set-up. My husband and I were very pleased with Courtney's service.

"It was a pleasure working with Courtney, very professional and responsive to all of our questions and concerns. She did an amazing job being our coordinator for the month and day of our wedding. We were on time and everything went smooth on our wedding day, couldn't have done it without her!"

SF TREASURE ISLAND WINERY WEDDING
"Courtney is simply amazing! She coordinated my house warming party for 80+ people and she handled everything seamlessly. She is an incredibly hard worker and anyone would be lucky to have her services."

HOUSE WARMING PARTY
"Courtney is detail oriented, organized, & can multitask like no other. From the first meeting with Courtney I knew she would make our wedding dreams a reality. She asked all the right questions and paid close attention to my concerns. Throughout the month she kept me on track and handled arrangements/situations I couldn't get to or felt overwhelmed with. The day of the wedding she executed!! We cannot even believe she pulled it off, it was a ton of work! Having a DIY wedding (venue only) and having to bring in each vendor was daunting, I wasn't sure how the day would turn out, but Courtney handled everything, and I mean everything, we even forgot some mixers for our signature drinks, but didn't even know until later that evening because she handled it. We didn't have to worry about one thing. As a bride I couldn't have asked for a better day, it was stress free and I could concentrate on what mattered most, having fun!!! All my vendors raved about Courtney as well so I know she can work well with others and as a team player. I HIGHLY recommend Courtney and without a doubt would hire her to organize any other large parties or events in the future, she is worth every penny!!!"

"Events By Courtney Ann assist me in the planning, coordinating and hosting of my Company Picnic and ensuring that the event went smoothly. Her advice and ideas resulted in the nicest picnic outing I could have imagined (not to mention relieving me of the stress associated with putting on a great event for my employers). We had a great turnout, with more than 65 people in attendance. She coordinated with the caterers, organized picnic games and party events and personalized the picnic area with banners, balloons and flowers. I had several organized games and races planned and Courtney facilitated in gathering large crowds for the games and making sure everyone had fun. Her timeline for the picnic was perfect. The picnic was awesome - everyone had a great time and my employers were extremely pleased. I would highly recommend Events By Courtney Ann for any event! She is organized, communicates well in the planning stages as well as at the event and is friendly and very professional."
