“Christina was our day of coordinator at Villa Woodbine. She was excellent! Very responsive and helpful. Brought up many things we had not thought about during the weeks prior to the wedding. She handled all vendors and coordinated everything and everyone so that it all looked seamless. On the big day, she covered everything. She had two assistants and the entire team was everywhere and invisible at the same time making sure the entire evening unfolded flawlessly and seamlessly without anyone knowing they were there. I would highly recommend Christina for her professionalism, responsiveness, expertise and effectiveness. Would definitely seek her out for any future events.”

“Christina is the most AMAZING wedding planner ever. My husband and I are from California and we had our wedding in Miami, so we definitely felt like we were in over our heads trying to plan a wedding from across the country. Christina and her team made the whole thing seem effortless. She spent the entire month and a half before our wedding making sure every last detail was taken care of. I can admit, my husband and I were so busy and sometimes hard to get ahold of, not to mention we are huge procrastinators, but Christina was always on top of it! I feel like she really went above and beyond. Not only did she coordinate the entire wedding, she helped us find vendors, entertainment, dealt with special requests... basically she assisted in almost every aspect. Our actual wedding day went by seamlessly and I did not have ONE thing to worry about. Christina and her team were so organized and meticulous... and they always made sure I was taken care of. Thank you Christina! I could not have pulled off my wedding without you!”

“I cannot say enough amazing things about Christina and her associates. She was hands down our best wedding investment. Not only was she thorough and efficient, she was also kind, responsive, and incredibly fun to work with. Planning with her felt like scheming with an old friend. We had absolutely no stress on the day of the wedding we owe it to her. Honestly, people were surprised at how free and relaxed we were the week leading up to the wedding, and it’s because we could trust her to handle all of the details. She truly went above and beyond, and we would not hesitate to give her the highest recommendation.”

“I never wanted a wedding. When we were engaged, I insisted that I wanted a courthouse ceremony followed by an amazing honeymoon. The further we got from our engagement (time-wise), the more family interjected, and next thing I knew, I had a full-on wedding to plan. Church, reception, video, photo, more money that I would have ever wanted to spend on flowers (did you know that they die?), the works. Which is why I'm so glad I found Christina. I hired her late in the game because I had to fire my original wedding planner. Once I realized how important a wedding planner is, and how nervous I was that she'd drop the ball on our wedding day, I knew I had to go with the best - she is professional, PATIENT, has amazing connections within the South Florida wedding industry, and is the right amount of honest. Also patient. Once again, patient. Really, I can't say it enough. Patient. She and her assistants are a team of female powerhouses - you'd think you're working with a large company, not a small business. On the day of, I wasn't worried about a THING. Everyone says that something is bound to go wrong on your wedding day - and TRUST, it did (the DJ played the wrong song, our cake melted, you know, the usual) - but I knew everything that Bustled can control (and even some things they can't) were in beyond-capable hands. They even stayed late decorating our honeymoon suite with flower petals EVERYWHERE - CAN YOU BELIEVE? SO CUTE!!! I usually use caps lock sparingly, but I really want to get my point across. I am yelling at you through my screen - HIRE BUSTLED! Thank me later. Or don't. It's cool.”

“Christina was amazing! I put so much time and effort into planning every little detail of my wedding that I was nervous handing everything off on the actual day but Christina handled everything seamlessly and brought up questions that I hadn't even thought of. Leading up to the wedding she reached out to all of my vendors to introduce herself and make sure we were all on track for a perfect day. When the actual day came she made it as stress free as possible and was there to address my every need. I knew she cared for my wedding day as if it were her own and her assistants were amazing as well! There wasn't a single point in the night where I didn't have a fresh drink in my hand. I swear if I thought of something or wanted something and looked up either she or her assistant were right there ready to give me whatever I needed! (without being in your personal space) There were plenty of vendors that I felt like I was annoying with all of my questions and concerns but she was not one of them - was super responsive and just very pleasant to work with. Overall on top of everything so you can enjoy all of the hard work you put in. Don't hesitate to hire her!”

"Christina was awesome! As soon as the 3-month countdown began she immediately reached out to our vendors to introduce herself & begin communication. We did a walk through of the venue with her, which was so helpful to have a pro go through the steps & timing of the big day at the actual venue. My mom & I organized my whole 200-person wedding ourselves so when we hired a day-of coordinator we weren't sure how they'd help so late in the game, but Christina made sure everything was checked off & brought up a ton of things that hadn't crossed our mind! We met with our band at the venue & coincidentally Christina had worked with them on other weddings, but she was very diligent with them about their set up & soundcheck time. I had an irrational fear that since I hired all the vendors myself & had no idea what I was doing, that they wouldn't show up at the right time or set up in the right place, but Christina was so on top of it that I felt a huge weight had been lifted from my year of planning. She helped us organize our seating chart with dietary restrictions & get it to the caterer, she answered all my badgering texts about how many shawls I should order for my guests, & she helped us go back & forth on how to get our guests fed & on the dance floor as quickly as possible. Christina is very warm & sweet but you can immediately tell she doesn't play around - she's focusing on every detail of your wedding. On the big day she was there with her assistants (who were also awesome & so sweet) & made sure everything was exactly how I had pictured it! They were so attentive of my husband & I throughout the night, making sure we always had a drink in our hand & food accessible. She has an emergency kit with everything you can think of which came in handy when my bustle broke! Any time I needed her she was always in sight! I can't recommend her enough!!"

"Christina and Maria were wonderful. They met with us days before to run through the flow and everything went on as planned on our wedding day. There were only welcome happy surprises throughout the night! They were always around if we needed absolutely anything, but were not overbearing or in your face. I cannot remember a moment either of us were without a drink in hand! The attention was really impressive."
-Ian, February 2017
"You are so kind and made me feel so at ease with every moment. From the moment I arrived on Saturday morning to the moment we left after it was over - you helped with every detail. I was so happy and excited that my only anxiety was about getting on the dance floor and partying. I could not bear to miss one minute of the celebration. We still have our heads in the clouds. I can't stop looking at videos and pictures. I don't know if every couple feels this way - but we felt so much love that day. It was palpable. We read your note in our Guest Book - I loved it. You are an utmost professional and if there is an opportunity to work with you again, you will be my first call. Now that I don't have a wedding to plan, I have no idea what to do with myself! Haha."
-Marissa, March 2016
"Thank you so much for your big role in the best day of my life. When most people would run for the hills you were eager and a pleasure to work with. You were the Perfect person to take over and because of you everything was perfect. You have a gift and I am forever grateful you were on my team. Hope to see you again someday!"
-Jensen, October 2014
"Thank you so much for all of your help on our big day :) I can't even express to you how perfect our wedding day felt and greatly appreciate all of your help in making it a success! Many of our wedding guests were complimenting us on how professional and how on-top-of things you were! We felt so pampered :) You were also never imposing or demanding about anything on timeline, rather suggestive. You were so attentive to me with making sure I had time to sit down and eat dinner and shoe exchanges through out the night! I also really appreciate that you called us over to look at the wedding cake so we could admire it for a minute by ourselves before cutting. That was truly a special moment for us. Thank you for taking the stress off of my shoulders so I could truly relax and enjoy the wedding night! Everything felt so perfect and special, I could not stop smiling :) "

"THANK YOU for everything that you did for us. The wedding went absolutely perfectly and so much of it was thanks to you. You handled everything so wonderfully but it was also FUN working with you. The guests were saying such incredible things about the food and the staff. When we renew our vows we'll let you know so we can get more of you. haha. If there's anything that we can do to help - give references, leave reviews, whatever it may be - please let us know. We have nothing but amazing things to say. "

"Thank you SO much for everything at our wedding. You have a very calming presence and I felt very looked after. Now I know what it's like to be famous! Everything looked fantastic -- even the last minute requests with the fortune cookies etc. I know you saw us on the day, but I attached a picture for you to see how happy we were. Please thank the other two in your trio. They were so wonderful as well."

Our guests were impressed and we have received so much positive feedback. We couldn't have had a better experience than we did with you. Thank you again for everything!"
