    Very Elegant Backdrop for our Special Day!

    My husband and I held a small wedding with close family and friends and wanted a nice backdrop and table arrangement for the head table. For over a month, we looked and looked online and went to a few places trying to find something we liked at a reasonable price. We were going to give up on the backdrop and and table arrangement, when we finally found Sherry at Crème de la Crème Wedding and Event Planning and Décor.

    If you are looking for wedding décor and ideas for your wedding I would highly recommend Sherry, as she did a phenomenal job for us! We just wish we had found Sherry earlier, as it would have saved us a lot of hassle when planning our wedding. She has so many ideas what we could do for decorating our wedding venue. Just walking into her showroom, we saw a lot of incredible backdrops and high quality items we thought would be great for a wedding! We came in and explained what we wanted for a backdrop and Sherry was quickly able to quickly put together a beautiful and elegant backdrop for us.

    Another thing we noticed was how passionate Sherry is about wedding planning and helping us decorate our wedding. She is a perfectionist and wants her customer’s to be 100% happy on their wedding day! We had great communication with Sherry and she was quick to respond when we had questions. Working with Sherry was like working with a close friend we had known for years!

    If you need any wedding decorating done give Sherry a call. Just don’t a week before like we did because being the perfectionist Sherry is, she will want as much time to set it up for you in her showroom, so you can see what your backdrop and head table will look like! Thanks Sherry for all the help with the backdrop and table setting!

    Awesome Experience!

    Sherry was super helpful and friendly and guided us through the entire process. We would have been lost without her ideas and help through our first wedding. We would definately recommend her services and her backdrop looked incredible! Thanks Sherry for all of your help!

    Wedding day

    When I walked into the hall to decorate the banquet room and saw the job that was done, it was equivalent to a dream you expected not to have ( in a good way!)

    Me and my husband are very thankful for Sherry and her expertise , her attention to detail , and her sweet demeanour that made the day possible. It made the fairy tale dream come true and a beautiful day.

    Thank you again Sherry !

    Words cannot express my gratitude

    I came to Sherry very last minute with very little planning and lots of anxiety. I knew there wasn't much to expect if I wanted to stay in my budget. But oh boy, it must have been a true blessing that lead me to Sherry. She took me in despite of her extremely busy schedule, worked with my budget and presented a plan within a day. She went above and beyond to make not only the decoration perfect but the whole wedding planning process as easy as possible for me. Many of the things she did to make my wedding day special were even without me asking! I found myself not a vendor but a friend, inspiration and role model as she is one of the most kind, generous and loving people I have encountered in my life. I cannot thank her and recommend her enough. Last but not least, the decorations were absolutely beautiful and more than I could ask for.

    Spectacular from start to finish!

    Sherry is a truly spectacular and selfless lady! I quickly learned that her one and only focus is doing everything possible for the bride and groom to have the best day they could possibly imagine. She always made sure the decisions my husband and I made reflected what we truly wanted, and she made the ideas we dreamed of come to fruition. She was there from day one since we were engaged and helped with every little step along the way - from providing us with samples of materials to ponder over and being super flexible with meetings, to making sure everyone made it down the aisle in perfect timing and promising us the most exhilarating entrance to our ballroom. She is super quick to reach and reply, via text, email or phone, which is something I highly value when you have to make timely and big decisions. She helped coordinate everything with our florist, she created a stunning backdrop for us, she helped with all the set-up, and she tirelessly helped with take-down. She thought of everything - nothing was overlooked and I didn't have to question if I was missing anything. She even got tarps for us last minute at our ceremony to cover the sound equipment when it started raining. Sherry is passionate, fun, organized, visionary and uplifting, to say the least - she genuinely puts her heart and soul into planning and creating beautiful, memorable weddings. I will miss all the time we spent talking about ideas and finalizing plans! Highly recommended!

    Amazing lady!!!!!

    Sherry came into my life as the back drop lady and quickly became a good friend.

    She asked me how I found her and I say google and I told her I emailed her first because she had a picture of herself. Which she thought was hilarious but I told her it was just good marketing.

    She was kind and made sure I got exactly what I wanted. Sherry and her husband came
    to my reception. I told her to come eat and drink and dance with me and not worry about anything because she was a guest but noooooooo....She came to my reception two hours early and made sure everything was set up they way I wanted.

    She created and designed a beautiful back drop. She set up my head table flowers. She helped my florist, my cake decorator put my cake on the wrong table and she fixed that. She went to three different stores to find me candy scoops. She absolutely went above and beyond.

    Sherry cares about every one of her brides and will do her absolute best to make sure brides get what they want at a fair price.

    Honestly brides. Just scoop her up while you can. She’s amazing. My wedding would not have been as great as it was with out her!

    My sweet Nathalie - it makes it easy to help when I have to work with such a special young woman who has a heart of gold! Thank you for the kind words, but honestly you have enriched my life as well! We made GREAT TEAM that equals success! ❤️

    Absolutely amazing!

    Sherry went above and beyond for our wedding. She created exactly what I was looking for. Right down to when I told her that I loved the look of pussy willows, she went and found some to add into the back drop. It was absolutely everything I imagined it would be! She communicated everything to me and made sure that I loved it. Her and her husband were so nice and helpful, I would recommend them 100 times over!

    Thanks so much Sherry for making my wedding absolutely perfect!
