My dream wedding happened in REAL life. I told Chrissy my vision that I had in my head, and she did not disappoint. Our wedding was very magical themed and there was lace, trees, chandeliers, and fairy lights. Everything I ever wanted and more. Chrissy also was like a therapist to me as well. On my wedding day she helped me breathe and stay calm, and i'm forever thankful for that. Everyone who came to our wedding keeps saying it was the BEST wedding they have been to!
Chrissy went above and beyond with planning our engagement and we can not wait for her to plan and coordinate our wedding! From finding the perfect hotel, scheduling transportation, delivering flowers and not missing any of the details, Chrissy at Ideal Design Events is a must have for anything having to do with planning a special day! She thought of everything and did not miss a single detail! Thank you Chrissy for everything you did to make our engagement the most spectacular and magical engagement of all! We are so excited we found you and can not wait for you to rock our wedding!
I don’t even know where to begin. I could truly write a novel about the service that I received from IDE. I will try to keep this short so the character limited be allow me to complete my review. Tom and Chrissy found out that my husband and I never had a real wedding. We had planned to do a big vow renewal at our 15 year mark, well December marked our 15 year. I am a bit of a control freak and my husband is very laid back. Several times during this planning process I became frustrated beyond imagination, Chrissy stepped in on my frustrations amd resolved. Tom came right behind her confirming. Finally, I relinquished being in controlled just a bit. I would call with questions, the answer was I did that two weeks ago or already done. Finally I just conveyed what I liked and let them do whatever. The day of the renewal, my make up had to be done over at least 6 times from the tears of joy I cried over the magical, over the top, beyond my wildest dream renewal they delivered. From Chrissy and the planners with the invitations, custom place cards, ball room, cocktail hour and garden design to Tom and his crew physically making it happen. ALL my guest LOVED Chrissy! What a magical day all made possible from IDE! Thank you again for everything.
I don’t even know where to start!!! First let me start by saying our wedding day was absolutely perfect and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! We hired Chrissy pretty immediately after getting engaged and I couldn’t be happier with everything from her and her company! I fell in love with her and her weddings while venue shopping on my own. While I was visiting the last venue of the day, I was immediately drawn in by the canvas photos and bridal photography books that were on display. The pictures of the weddings she had created were so beautiful and all different! I could tell that she tailored every one to each of her bride's personalities and styles. Also, EVERY venue visited during "the hunt" said Chrissy fights for her brides and does EVERYTHING to make sure the day is perfect! I just KNEW that I had to meet this woman and that she would be the one in charge of my big day!
We purchased the FULL PACKAGE from Chrissy, which allowed us to have her there on the actual wedding day, best decision ever! Even the vendors she works closely with and recommended were outstanding (3C’s catering, DJ Phil with Fastbreak Entertainment, her seamstress - Magali, Dale the florist..)! Chrissy never steered us wrong and was always there to listen when we were stressed or concerned. She went ABOVE and BEYOND throughout the whole planning process and took care of details that I would have NEVER EXPECTED her to! She even worked day and night on our wedding when she was in bed with the flu, TWICE! I think one of the most impressive things about our experience with Chrissy was how she ALWAYS made me feel like I was her only bride. I know she is always working on multiple weddings at the same time but she NEVER confused them, or pushed me aside. I know other brides must feel like that too! Wedding planning can be stressful for sure, but Chrissy always made me feel at ease, even right before walking down the aisle! She is THE BEST and I would HIGHLY recommend her to any bride! -Nicole
Chrissy Craft, owner of IDE, is so much more than a wedding planner. She is now a lifelong friend, and even FAMILY! We came to Chrissy in October 2017 when we had to fire the planner we had had for over a year at that point for our upcoming wedding Jan. 20, 2018. I was already stressed with all of the things that still had to be done and that had to be fixed. But Chrissy kept me so calm and constantly assured me I was not behind and that she would handle everything. Her communication is like NO other! I don't think I ever waited more than 1 minute to get a response from her ever! No matter what time or day of the week it was! Let me also just say that on many occasions when I asked Chrissy to call a vendor or check up on something for me, she had almost always already done it or had things all lined up. For someone who easily gets overwhelmed she made me feel so relaxed and taken care of at all times! My wedding day was a dream come true and was more beautiful than I ever could've imagined! Chrissy and her team, Abby and Pablo were equally as amazing!! They executed everything perfectly and the three of them went above and beyond my vision! My only regret is I wish I hired Chrissy sooner!! I'm still getting compliments from friends and family about how wonderful my wedding planner was and how they wish they had known about her when they got married! We love you Chrissy and IDE!!
