"Being somebody's wedding planner is not
a job... it's a privilege. A privilege that few can understand or appreciate."

Azucena and me at Hacienda Del Sol
My husband and I could not be more pleased that we decided to work with Perfectly Planned by Candida for our special day, in May of 2014.
Candida came highly recommended to us and now I know exactly why!
We were impressed with not only the quality of her work and her professionalism, but also Candida's lovely personality. It was important to us to work with vendors who understood our needs and Candida did an excellent job in matching us with the perfect ones. She provided us with helpful and thoughtful suggestions at all times. Candida's work ethic, flexibility, and great personality was exactly what we needed with all of the hustle and bustle around us the day of our wedding. Everything was flawless and we could not have done it without Candida.
I highly recommend Candida! My husband and I had a perfectly planned day with absolutely no worries because we knew she was there to help us every step of the way!

Gyda at Skyline Country Club
I was very lucky to have come across Candida's Website. Upon meeting her for the first time she immediately made me feel comfortable! She has such a great energy, she's always positive and most importantly, she listened to what I wanted. The best thing about her was when came across issues about my invitations due to the vendors mistakes, she spent all day making phone calls ,fixing the problem, and it came to the point where she was personally getting charge for the changes that I have made ( because I'm so indecisive, and now I feel really bad) but she wanted it to be perfect for me that she took care of it anyways, and it came out perfect! So thank you Candida, you are the best wedding planner in the world!
Jawna at Agua Linda
Can I rate her at 6 stars??!! By FAR the best vendor I hired for my wedding. My venue required my husband and I to bring in literally everything from outside. We ended up with some great vendors and some not so great. Candida, was definitely in the GREAT category! She de-stressed us throughout the entire last month of our planning (and even before her services started). The day of she was dealing with some vendors that I would of probably killed if I had to deal with. Even under her own stress she put on a happy face and didn't let my groom or I in on any discrepancies that may have arose that night... until the next day when I called her to get the gossip, lol. She is so worth it. Such a pleasure to work with. I felt like I had a friend there helping me with my day, not just a planner. Oh, and I LOVE her smiley faces in her texts/emails! Thanks again Candida for all your hard work, I know it wasn't the easiest wedding to deal with, but you made it the best experience it could be for Remy and I!!!
Mary at Skyline Country Club
I can never thank Candida enough for the amazing job she did on our wedding! Loved having her so much that we hired her to do my brothers wedding as well. She gave us back our piece of mind for the wedding day so we could actually enjoy it and not worry about everything that needed to be done. Candida and her team did an amazing job of decorating the reception hall and making sure everything went smoothly. Words cannot describe how beautiful our ceremony and reception were. I look forward to hiring Candida for any and all events that arise! We Love you Candida! Mary and Jon Brindley

Amy at Westward Look
Candida really knows her stufff! She knows what she is doing, her clients, and the vedors that she works with. With her help, we were able to put together the wedding of our dreams!
Vanessa at Starpass Resort
Candida was the best thing we ever did! She was EXTREMLY helpful and really took the stress out of planning. Before Candida, we ran into some MAJOR problems with our venue and people we were working with. Once we decided to hire her, Candida took charge and handled all the madness that was on our plate. She was sincere with us and sympathized with what we were going through. This really meant a lot to me and my husband. Not only was she kind and sincere but she was confident and professional when working on our behalf. We feel she went above and beyond working for us. As a result, she was able to address and fix the problems of our wedding! If it wasn't for Candida, I'm convinced we would not have had our dream wedding. She really was amazing and allowed us to enjoy the process of planning. ~Nick and Vanessa
P J Overholt at her beautiful home
Perfectly Planned by Candida, wedding coordinator, accepted the job of assisting me to plan my daughter's wedding in a month and a half. Since daughter lives in California, it took emails, photos, and several meetings to design what daughter wanted. Candida understood exactly the look we were going for, and with the vendors she chose, provided exactly that. It was spectacular, magical, and just beautiful. Candida was always very responsive, returning calls immediately, which is important for trust. She had our back yard turned into a wonderful wedding venue! I would definitely recommend her, and would use her services again. Everything seemed easy, and I did not feel stress about the wedding. Everything was taken care of...above and beyond what i thought would really happen.
Kay at Stardance
Candida was such a lovely person to work with. She is very experienced and excellent at her job. She made my husband and I feel comfortable and goes above and beyond to look out for us. My wedding was supposed to be outside but had to be moved inside due to rain. Candida made sure the indoor ceremony was just as beautiful. She takes her time to get to know you because she genuinely cares. I am so grateful for her hard work and can honestly say she is someone I can call a friend. Thank you Candida and keep up the amazing work. Love Kay and Ogaga

Angelica at Angelica's Wedding and Event Center
My name is Angelica Sparks and my wedding was on April 20, 2013. My wedding was a success and super fun thanks to the service provided by Perfectly Planned by Candida. Candida was professional from day one and most importantly HELPFUL! She always gave me great advice and gave me ideas on what weddings were like since I had never been to one and never been married in the past. Now that I have been through the planning that my wedding required I realized that weddings can be really stressful but, the unique help that Candida offers can make it all fade away. I remember plenty of times when I would call Candida emotional just thinking of my wedding day and all the things that could happen. By the end of the call everything was back to normality thanks to her. She truly took my stress way! Most importantly my wedding was a reflection of her wonderful work. She took care of every detail including rude photographers and vendors hired by my family. The most surprising part is that these things were occurring on my wedding day but I did not know of them until days after. Making my wedding stress free and a true success! It could not have been better. Thank you Candida! I love you girly you’re the best!

Please thank everyone that helped my little one and the other babies enjoy her birthday, I will not forget it and any time you need an extra hand, please call me and I will help.

Candida and her staff are extremely friendly, approachable and professional. I could always get in touch with Candida via her cell phone and/or email whenever I had a question for her. Candida had many vendors that she has worked with and highly recommended them which made it easier for me to coordinate my wedding plans. It was a pleasure doing business with Perfectly Planned by Candida as my wedding planner. My daughter and her husband were overall very pleased with their wedding.

Having done weddings with you Candida, I whole heartedly recommend you to my clients. I'll admit that in the past I may not have been as enthused about the added expense of a wedding planner, yet you have made me a believer! The quality of relationship that you demonstrate with your clients as well as l the skill you demonstrate in making things happen in a hands-on approach is a service that any couple will benefit from.
