    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!

    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!

    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!

Welcome to CC - I can't wait to me you!

When you meet me, what will you think? Well, I'm fun, love to chat and laugh! I get super excited when we start planning a wedding. My vision is your vision, so I respect your thoughts and your dreams. My job is to help you create the best day possible. It doesn't matter how big or small I do the same quality of work for everyone. It's such an honour and privilege to guide my clients on their adventure becoming the new Mr. & Mrs. I'm here to stand by your side when times are joyful and stressful. I'm here to calm your nerves and reassure my couples that we got this.

I'm here to answer your questions - or listen - some times that is enough.

So if you feel I'm the right fit, give CC a call. The most important advice I can share with you is choosing the right vendor based on experience and how and if your personalities are a match. A working relationship can be long-running, depending on your event. Finding the perfect fit will make the planning process so much easier and enjoyable - for both the client and the vendor. Do your homework and happy planning.

I leave you with my favourite quote:

Maya Angelou — 'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.'
