What to say about Cristina? I think my title explains precisely how I feel about her. She is the most professional, positive person I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I hired her basically at my best friend's wedding which she also coordinated beautifully. Cristina helped me plan out every 15 minutes of my wedding day. She helped me organize all my items, transported things to my venue(s) for the ceremony and the reception. She coordinated final timelines to all my other vendors and provided us with individual timelines so they/we all worked seamlessly. The biggest thing of all was that when my transport company cancelled on me 3 days before my wedding, she found a couple options for replacements within 2hrs. She was available to me whenever I had questions and I really couldn't imagine our day going as perfectly as it did without her. I will insist everyone in my family on hiring her for their wedding days. She will now become our event coordinator for life!

Cristina and Vicky were phenomenal. I worked with Cristina the month leading up to my wedding and from our first call I knew I was in good hands. She's extremely organized and quickly takes control of the tasks at hand. On the day of, she brought Vicky and I don't know how I could have ever gotten through the day without them. They took a divide and conquer approach, which helped tackle logistics and decorating, all while sticking to the timeline and making sure my ceremony began on time and without a hitch. They were both a pleasure to work with and a calming presence. Vicky even helped my 7-month pregnant self change into sneakers!
I cannot recommend their services enough!

We hired Cristina for month-of coordination and are so glad that we did. After the long planning process, it felt like a breath of fresh air to have Cristina come in to support the final details and ensure the wedding day would be perfect. Day-of, everything ran so smoothly and we had such peace of mind knowing that Cristina was onsite with the lists we put together to make sure nothing was missed (while still allowing us and our closest loved ones to enjoy the day too).

Cristina was a pleasure to work with! She is super detail oriented and thought of things I had forgotten about. I was on the line about hiring an event coordinator but I am SOO happy I had Cristina. My wedding was worry free and I just enjoyed the day while she handled all the logistics and made sure every moment went seamlessly. Our bouquets (that I thought were assembled) came unassembled and Cristina made bouquets for all of us last minute and they looked beautiful. If you need a coordinator for your event definitely use Carismas Design LLC.

If you need expert assistance and a calm professional to support your own planned wedding Cristina is the one for you. We wanted to be heavily involved in the planning and execution of our event but at the same time knew that we were 1) amateurs at this and 2) we would not be able to both get married and run a wedding. Cristina came in as our wedding coordinator and pulled our ragged thoughts into a professional workplan and timeline. She thought of everything in advance. And come the day of the wedding she worked tirelessly and calmly to make sure that every moving part was executed without a hitch. Dealing with vendors, working with the caterer, managing the moving parts of the event space, arranging the flowers, organizing the guests, and most importantly being the go to person for everything wedding that day. Amazing. You couldn't find a better wedding coordinator. You need to hire this person.

Like most people, I thought, “I don’t need a wedding planner/coordinator.” I cannot stress this enough, Cristina is so much more than that. Cristina is so kind and understanding. She makes everyone feel calm because she’s got everything under control. She created the entire wedding timeline, communicated with all my vendors to make sure everyone was on time, knew what they were doing and where they were going. On the day of she was my human alarm clock so that I never had to think about where I had to be and when. That feeling is absolutely priceless. I actually got to enjoy every second of my wedding day because I literally had nothing to worry about. I could just live in the moment and have fun. Remember when I said she was a miracle worker? Yeah. I had a completely stress free wedding day and I owe that all to Cristina. She is absolutely amazing and I cannot recommend her enough.

Cristina was my wedding planner and day-of coordinator for my November 2021 wedding. It's not an exaggeration to say that hiring Cristina was the best decision I could have made while wedding planning. She guided me through every step of the process, including creating vendor searches for each category and helping me maintain a budget. Her industry knowledge and contacts were invaluable. Our wedding was more amazing than I could have ever hoped for. Everything ran exactly according to the plan Cristina and I put together and was so beautiful.

Cristina was our Coordinator for my daughter's wedding 9/26/20. I can't imagine not having her to guide us. We had a Barn wedding (actually because of COVID had it outside the barn) so we had to do everything ourselves. She was AMAZING! Handled the vendors and all documentation we needed, created a timeline for hair, makeup, and photographer so it all went perfectly smooth, calmed me down when I called her stressed about weather, offered suggestions/ideas that we never thought of. Very professional and organized and was ALWAYS very responsive when I had a question or needed advice. Excellent communication!! Didn't worry about a thing on the wedding day! So my daughter & I were able to enjoy the day. I can't say enough about our experiences with her.

I hired Cristina at Carismas Design in April 2019, knowing that I would need some help planning my August 2020 wedding. From my initial meeting with Cristina, I knew that she was the planner I needed! Her energy and responsiveness are amazing! When the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency began to impact our wedding, we had so many questions. Cristina answered all of my questions and eased my concerns immediately.
She helped to plan my micro-wedding at a completely new venue, hired vendors, and created a perfect timeline - all within three weeks! Having Cristina by my side at every step of the way was everything that I could ask for. I appreciate her attention to detail, charisma, and knowledge of the industry. I would 100% recommend Carismas Design to any couple looking for full, day of, or month-of coordination.

...was hire Cristina! To summarize me, I was a pretty organized bride with a 12 tabbed Google Sheets document. I kinda plan for my career, so planning a wedding was not all that bad. However, I knew the few months leading up to the wedding that things would get crazy and wasn’t sure I could do it all. Hence my search for a day of coordinator began and lead me to Cristina. She is the most organized, patient, flexible accommodating person ever. She managed coordinating between my many vendors with ease and only contacted me and my now husband when necessary. She was thoughtful and brought details and questions to my attention That I would have never, ever thought of. I highly recommend Cristina and her team to anyone planning a wedding. It will be the best thing you decide to do. Seriously!

On 9/19/19 Cristina made our special day even more special! As the newly married couple we had nothing to worry about during the actual day but party.

Cristina was firm but understanding and also made us feel as comfortable as possible. We love Cristina and wish she did other events so we can have her for those events too. Everyone who had an interaction felt comfortable and just loved her. If you are looking for a wedding planner look no further than Cristina, she literally made our dreams come true.

My fiancé and I live very busy non traditional lives. I am in health care and work nights. He is in the military and has been overseas for the majority of our planning. With our schedules, and opinionated families, we were looking for someone to help lessen wedding planning stress. From the start she has helped us with establishing a budget, meeting with vendors, negotiating contracts, designing save the dates, to solving unexpected issues. My fiancé and I had an unexpected life event that changed his availability for our engagement shoot. When our photographers were unavailable during his short, unexpected visit, we were bummed. I was stressed. Cristina didn’t flinch. She used her resources and scheduled us another amazing photographer for our shoot. Not only is she knowledgeable, she also has a warming personality that every bride needs. In the end, you want to like the people you are working with and you’ll love her. I even referred her to my good friend who is getting married!

Where do I begin...Cristina is a one woman powerhouse. She is unbelievably organized and so meticulous with every detail that on the day of our wedding three days ago, my only job was to get ready for the wedding. The rest, she took care of. From the set-up of our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception details to giving the groom and his groomsmen guidance on what they should do ahead of the first look for photos to making everything come together before we walked down the aisle, everything went so seamlessly and our wedding was perfect.

Most people believe they can plan a wedding on their own but the reality is my husband and I could not have planned our wedding without Cristina. She is so knowledgeable and has many connections in the wedding industry. Leading up to the wedding Cristina walked us through venue tours, price negotiations, contract readings, engagement photo shoots, invitation designs, timeline details, music selections, and more. The day of the wedding Cristina ensured that everything went smoothly despite the unexpected bumps in the road. On my end, my makeup artist did not show up and Cristina called another makeup artist who came within 20 minutes and did an amazing job on me and the bridal party. On my husbands end, he left his entire suit at home but was able to go to a shop to purchase another one. Cristina managed to keep my husbands mishap from me and mine from him, she also kept us calm and helped us to have an amazing wedding day. We highly recommend Cristina, she is the best in her field!

Cristina gets the job done! I knew I needed a day of coordinator when I booked 3-4 months before our wedding, but I didn't know how fundamental she would end up being. We were having a ceremony on the roof top of our apartment building in Brooklyn before a reception at a local brewery. Without Cristina, we simply would not have been able to pull off having a ceremony in such an unusual location. She helped up navigate getting 75 chairs up six flights of stairs, made sure everything was ready at the venues, set up champagne for the guests to toast, and made sure we were all on schedule throughout the day. To top it off, her husband Jeremy came and helped her out so that we wouldn't have to pay an extra day of chair rentals. While the guests were arriving, he even helped two of our older relatives with mobility issues walk up the six flights of stairs. He was so kind and patient and we are so grateful that he made our relatives truly feel at ease in our unusual wedding venue.

After we initially met, I had several questions throughout the process which she promptly answered in a professional manner. We even used the cake vendor that she recommended which turned out great! Once we were about 6 weeks out, Cristina emailed me to get the ball rolling. From there, she met with us for a venue walk-through, drew up floor plans, suggested table placement, gave us checklists, organized all of the work we had already done, spoke with everyone that we hired, and created a wonderful timeline which the rest of our vendors loved. In those 6 weeks (and even prior) she was always quick to respond to all of my crazy questions, and I always appreciated her input. Another awesome decision with Cristina was hiring 2 bartenders through her; our guests thought the service was speedy and efficient. Cristina made our day care-free for us and even helped us break down at the end of the night. She fielded any and all issues and really contributed to making our day so special.

I never thought I needed a day of coordinator. I am a planner by nature and totally thought I could handle everything on my own. As we got closer to the day of the wedding, I realized that to truly be able to disconnect and enjoy my day, I needed some help. Hiring Cristina was probably the best decision I ever made. She was SO organized, was able to work through the carefully organized spreadsheets that I gave to her, and was able to effortlessly navigate through the many personalities of my family/bridal party, all the while keeping the wishes of my husband and I a priority. She kept us to a schedule (which was NOT an easy feat with a bridal party of 19), and made sure that we were happy the entire time. She even made sure we got any meals boxed up at the end of the night for guests that no-showed. She made the entire experience so wonderful, from our first phone call to our last hug of the evening. Even my dad had to give her a hug, because of how much stress she took off of me.

Cristina was so helpful throughout the whole process. Always answered emails and texts immediately and always had helpful responses. She reached out and confirmed everything with all vendors the month before the wedding and created a timeline for vendors for the day of the wedding. I hired a lot of vendors and she was able to organize and handle them all. In addition, I had a lot of additional decor that I wanted set up for the wedding and she put it all together just like I wanted. My florist was late the day of the wedding and she reached out to them and smoothed everything out, with out any problems. We also had a large bridal party with many different personalities and she was able to handle the group without a problem and kept things organized and under control. Definitely worth every penny and more! She made the day run smoothly and made my day perfect and stress free!

She has a GREAT attitude-- she listens to your concerns and notes every little detail and does not miss anything. She is also good at offering up her suggestions based on past experience, and this perspective is very helpful when wedding planning! With Cristina, I never felt like I was in the wrong hands, and always felt more reassured that the day would turn out as planned after each conversation with her. If you ever have a question, she answers immediately-- and that is not an understatement. The day of the wedding, Cristina navigated perfectly. As a DIY bride, some things did not get done on my end and I did not even really have the time to flesh out a detailed to do list. The morning of, we briefed her before I slipped into my dress, and she made it all happen. We got to the reception site and I was very happy to see that everything was in place and looked just as I had imagined.

She is truly amazing! She is creative, an out-of-the-box thinker and can problem-solve on her feet! She was extremely helpful when it came to choosing vendors (her DJs and photographers are the best!!) and was so so patient with all my bride-zilla questions!
Not only that, she has a keen eye for aesthetics and her attention to detail was absolutely astounding. She has tons of experience with weddings and thought of all the little details that a first-time bride like myself would never consider. She can work within any budget, has amazingly unique and creative ideas and is super organized. She is also very responsive and easy to reach. Planning a wedding is stressful however having her on board was re-assuring. I never felt like I was alone and could always depend on her to calm me down, give me the right advice, help me pick this from that, and solve any other wedding-crises that came my way. I couldn't have pulled off my amazing wedding without her.

It's about time Cristina and her team joined NJ Weddings. She did a fabulous job with coordinating my wedding. Every detail that my husband and I found important to us, Cristina and her team made sure it happened. We loved our wedding decors and the venue Cristina found was amazing. I couldn't believe how easy she made planning our wedding really was. The entire process was stress free and genuinely a good time. Thank you so much for everything!

Carismas was amazing!! Very professional, affordable and generally a really great person. What ever I wanted she made it happen, from the beautiful center pieces, to the wedding cake even the DJ was great. She is the only wedding planner in my opinion to use.

Cristina was the best decision I made in all of my wedding planning. She helped me with every detail and made my big day flow effortlessly. In every each phone call that we had, she helped me narrow down decisions and come up with even better options that I hadn't considered. She also pays attention to every detail and makes you feel heard and appreciated. Her timeline for the day was perfectly executed down to the minute so no second was wasted. If you are looking for someone to help you make sense of the chaotic day ahead, look no further because she is truly the best!

Working with Cristina was a pleasure ! She helped with all the details that are so tedious for me. I have her my vision and she made it happen! She worked with all the vendors and the timelines. The day flowed beautifully with no hiccups - or if there were I never found it ❤️ I will certainly use Carismas Design again !!
