“What can I say?
I’m speechless!

Claire and her team outdid themselves! The venue, the ceremony, the entire weekend, the decor, the precision, the staff, the food, the music. We would have never ever been able to pull this off with this amazing team! They never said no to anything nor stressed about anything! Claire and her team made the whole wedding planning process fun, stress-free and exciting!”

Our fee structure reflects the breadth of our experience, our outstanding planning and design, and meticulous execution. 

We work with a sliding scale percentage fee. Most of our couples dedicate 15–20% of their overall budget to our planning, design and event management services.

We have created tailored events across the U.S., Latin America, Europe and the Caribbean, but we are always excited to flex our planning and design skills in a new locale.


Because of the level of care we pour into each of our couples, we intentionally cap the  number of events we take on each year. We’re admittedly selective about the clients with whom we work, but you’ll feel the difference in our exceptionally high-touch service.

“Absolutely flawless!

It is difficult to put into words how overwhelmingly magical our wedding turned out because of CDWE. We had a lot of ideas and a particular aesthetic, but Claire and all the vendors she entrusted with our collective vision pulled off what our guests continue to call ‘the wedding of the century!’ From the decor, to the venue selections, the production, the floral, the entertainment and beyond, the execution was simply flawless!”

We adore every place in which we’ve worked (seriously, if we’re not planning events you can bet we’re dreaming up our next travel adventures). But nothing makes our planning and design hearts happier than the opportunity to explore a new environment. With deep roots across different regions of the world, you can depend on us to seamlessly incorporate multicultural elements that reflect our couples and navigate cultural nuances and inclusiveness with ease.
