I can never say enough wonderful things about Cathy Anna. Not only is she a wonderful and efficient planner, but she has the sweetest soul. She took my ideas and desires, and created my dream wedding. She took time to really get to know my husband and I and the story of our relationship, and was able to implement our personalities into our special day.
She knew from our initial meeting that I was not going to be your "typical bride", as I am extremely modern and non-traditional. Most planners might be scared of "being different" but not her. Cathy Anna took this information and thrived in design for our wedding. She was even able to impress my husband through the process, which is not an easy feat.
Throughout it all, I am most blessed to be able to say that I have gained a friend more than anything else. We have kindred spirits and she is such a blessing to those she encounters on this Earth, that choosing her as your planner will not only be one of the best decisions of your life, but also one of the biggest blessing on your life.
Thank you so much for making our day that much more special by allowing us to be us! We love you!

I loved every single detail of this wedding, it was beyond perfect! If you want the wedding of your dreams to come to life, you need Cathy Anna Events!

Cathy Anna helped take our challenging Lake Gaston property & turn it into the rustic, elegant wedding my daughter always envisioned. The vendors were all amazing & her team very professional and such fun. No detail was overlooked & the day went off without a hitch. The planning was interesting as the bride & groom live in Maine, my husband & I in Virginia and the wedding was taking place in rural NC, but Cathy went above & beyond to make it work. The flowers & design elements were spectacular-simply the best!

Cathy did a wonderful job with helping plan my daughter's wedding. From beginning to end, Cathy was always there to offer advice and think of every detail. The day of the event, she pulled it all together and made the wedding an event to remember. All of the guests commented that this was by far, the nicest wedding they had ever attended! Thank you to the Cathy Anna Team for all of your hard work!

Wow! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding...it was perfectly suited to our personalities and included many nods to my Colombian heritage...so much more than I could have ever imagined. Every little detail was taken care of and the design was simply stunning! We just LOVE the talent and expertise of the Cathy Anna Events team.

We were so lucky to have Cathy helping with our wedding! She was able to take our vision for the wedding and turn it into so much more than we could have ever hoped for! Not only is she super creative with all the details that make a wedding come together, she is also very organized and kept me organized and on schedule throughout the planning process as well. Once the big day came, it was such a relief to know that we had someone we could trust handling all the details and making sure everything flowed smoothly. We couldn't have had the beautiful wedding that we did without Cathy's help!

Cathy was excellent at helping me dream up details for my wedding while remaining on a tight budget. She was so helpful on the day of the wedding and dealt with details that shouldn't be weighing on a Bride or a Groom on his/her wedding day. She was personable enough to interact well with guests and friends, but was strong-willed enough to get a task done when it needed to be completed! She's an excellent balance of hard-working and fun.

I had two months to both move to Denver, CO and plan my wedding. Even though I did a lot of the planning on my own, I knew I needed help with the actual event. Cathy Anna flew to Denver in order to direct the wedding, and went above and beyond my expectations!! From the time she arrived, I was able to stop worrying about coordination. She contacted all my vendors and from that point on, none of the organization was in my hands. I shared my ideas of how I wanted our church to look for the wedding, and she brought everything together. When I walked down the aisle, it was my first time seeing the church set up and decorated, and it was PERFECT!!
I highly recommend Cathy Anna because she listens to YOUR dreams and brings them to life. There is no other time in your life that you will need someone else so much to help you not to stress, and Cathy Anna is that "someone else".

We were very blessed to have Cathy Anna Designs do our wedding! We had a budget and she went above and beyond to help us work within it. I cannot begin to say how creative she was to make our event even more beautiful than we could imagine! Most impressive is how she understood our vision and worked with us to create it! We would highly recommend her!

I chose Cathy Anna as my wedding coordinator because I had seen her work with a handful of my girlfriends' weddings - and she truly is fantastic at what she does! When working with Cathy, you get not only her proactive, efficient planning, but also her talented eye for design. My family and I knew that we didn't have a thing to worry about on my wedding weekend because Cathy had every detail completely under control. She made sure that every member of the bridal party felt confident and competent about their role in the weekend's events, she spent time with my friends at our reception hall showing them how to decorate the venue just the way I wanted it, and she worked with my DJ to make the reception flow seamlessly. So many guests commented to me about how amazing my wedding planner was and their surprise at the fact that such a beautiful and large event could come off without a single hitch. I couldn't be happier with my choice to have Cathy Anna coordinate such an important day in mine and my husband's life. I give her my full recommendation!

Cathy Anna was absolutely wonderful to work with. We did not have to worry about a thing. Any glitches that came up with the other vendors, she handled with amazing patience and professionalism. She made the wedding a carefree experience for the whole family. She directed the wedding and reception so that all we had to do was enjoy the day!! I can't say enough good things about Cathy Anna Designs. She is fabulous!!!

We just had two very successful community events that were coordinated by Cathy Anna Designs. Simply put, she just “gets it”. With both events, we had a theme that we wanted to convey and she helped us accomplish exactly what we had in mind. I was impressed with her attention to detail, her follow through, and her ability to communicate with everyone involved to make our event a major success.
One of the many things we really liked about working with Cathy was her wisdom and experience. Her advice was always excellent and as we got closer to the event we realized that we could really rely on her to implement not only what was needed, but to always add that something extra that made our event special for everyone involved. If you are going to hire an event planner, I can tell you with absolute confidence that you will not find anyone better than Cathy Anna Designs. Thank You Cathy!
