But first, coffee. I live by this saying, if you don’t find me at a coffee shop or without a coffee in my hand, I probably am not functioning. My go to order is a classic iced coffee with some simple syrup, but when times are desperate ...

Dance. Coffee. Hamilton. Three words that pretty much sum up the loves of my life. Growing up in Upstate NY, I was in the dance studio almost every day of the week and learning everything from pirouettes to shiggy bops. I continue this love each and every day by seizing every chance I get to bust a move.

"NOT ONE THING WENT WRONG ON OUR WEDDING DAY. EVERYTHING FLOWED, THE RECEPTION WAS DECORATED EXACTLY HOW WE ENVISIONED, AND MY HUSBAND AND I WERE ABLE TO BOTH ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF OUR DAY,"

"Charissa was incredible; she is not only a joy to work with, but she was able to execute on my vision seamlessly. I trusted her whole heartedly and our wedding was truly truly perfect because of her. If you want someone with great attention to detail, an amazing attitude, a huge sense of support, and a wealth of planning knowledge, pick Charissa!!"

Without Charissa and her amazing team, I don’t know how we could have pulled off our spectacular day. From set up to close, every single detail, from guest service to table settings, to “run of the show”, it was all perfection. I was able to fully enjoy my daughters wedding day, and put full trust in her and the team. They went above and beyond, and I will be telling everyone I know who has a future wedding that Simply Loved Weddings is a 5 star service. Thank you Charissa and company for making my daughter and son in laws dream day a super successful reality!

Charissa is an excellent planner and coordinator! I started working with her with our venue booked, but pretty much no other vision or idea of how I wanted our wedding to be. She was patient, provided suggestions and recommended excellent vendors to help it all come together, and was also on top of all vendor communications. It was also super easy to schedule time and get in touch with her throughout the whole process (15 months of planning!), even if it was just for 10-minute call to touch base on random questions that we had. She, Kevin and Melissa also did an excellent job coordinating day-of and making sure everything was set up, cleaned up, and ran smoothly. She was also available throughout the day (and into the winddown at night!) to answer any questions that came up. Having Charissa and her team really removed so much stress from wedding planning and the wedding day. Highly recommended!

"Charissa and Jess are the most wonderful human beings ever, and will make your day absolutely perfect. I cannot say enough good things about Charissa, her attentiveness to detail, her ability to destress you just by her mere presence. She coordinated the day of events perfectly, everything flowed so well. I was naturally worried about everything, and Charissa and Jess took all my ideas, and all my wedding things, and made it perfection!! I will have to attach some of the photos below for you to see their amazing work. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I could not be more grateful for you two!!"

Kelly and Rob

I just have to start with wow. Working with Charissa was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. When deciding on a coordinator, I wanted to find someone that would really listen and help with what I wanted for the day and she did just that. Having booked her pre Covid, she was fantastic in offering advice on postponing. While we were dealing with issues with our photographer she was there to help any way she could, even before our contract started!! The day of the wedding, she set up everything beautifully and just the way I had pictures. She helped our day run so smoothly that it made for a much more enjoyable night with our family and friends. Just hire her. I promise you won’t regret your decision!

Charissa and her team were absolutely incredible! We had a lot of moving pieces and things that needed to be coordinated the day of our wedding and Charissa handled it all. I was able to fully trust her and everything ran so smoothly thanks to her! If something went wrong, I had no clue about it because that’s how on top of everything her team was. Everything was perfect!! Could not recommend Simply Loved Weddings enough!

Sandra and Conor

"HER CALMNESS, KINDNESS, AND GUIDANCE WAS EXTREMELY BENEFICIAL THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE WEDDING PLANNING PROCESS - SHE ANSWERED ANY AND ALL OF THE QUESTIONS WE HAD, WHETHER THAT BE DESIGN IDEAS OR TIMELINE OF THE DAY. DURING THE WEDDING DAY, SHE WAS ALL OVER EVERYTHING! SETTING UP THE RECEPTION, COORDINATING WITH THE WEDDING PARTY - JUST MAKING SURE EVERYTHING WAS READY TO GO AND PERFECT. WE WOULD RECOMMEND CHARISSA AND SIMPLY LOVED WEDDINGS TO ANYONE!"

Stacey Raap and Max Rick

"CHARISSA WAS INCREDIBLE. SHE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND AND DID MORE THAN WAS ASKED. SHE CHECKED IN WITH US, GAVE US OPTIONS, AND WAS REALLY THE BACKBONE OF OUR WEDDING. WE HAD A WEDDING ON A BUDGET BUT KNEW WE WANTED TO PUT MONEY TOWARD A DAY-OF COORDINATOR SO WE WOULDN'T BE TOO STRESSED ON OUR BIG DAY BUT CHARISSA WAS WITH US THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS, NOT JUST THE WEDDING DAY. THE DAY WENT SO SMOOTHLY, SHE TOOK OVER THE HARD STUFF AND WORKED ON DETAILS I WAS NEVER ABLE TO GET TO OR EVEN BEGIN THINKING OF, SHE WAS SO EASY TO WORK WITH, REALLY GUIDED US, AND I TRULY CONSIDER CHARISSA A FRIEND AFTER EVERYTHING. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS."
