We found Candace in the middle of our wedding planning. And once we met her, we fell in love with her instantly. She got to know us as a couple, our likes and dislikes, lusts and musts and was able to create our dream wedding. She met and negotiated with all of our vendors on our behalf, which was a lifesaver for us out-of-towners. Before we met Candace, we had struggled endlessly to find the perfect florist: either they could not give us what we wanted within our budget or were not available the day of our wedding. If it were not for her professional connections, we would have never found them (or had everything we wanted work within our budget).
I think that I speak for Jill and I when I say that we could not have had the wonderful wedding that we did without Candace's help and teamwork. We are both extremely busy individuals, and Candace was indispensable in guiding us through the process without a hitch. We had complete confidence in her, and she never let us down. Candace listened to our preferences and also gave us perspectives and ideas that we would have never thought of. Our guests raved about everything and, looking back, we would not have changed anything. We can’t thank her enough!
Candace was wonderful to work with. Her knowledge, her experience, her attention to detail - she possesses all the qualities that are key to successful event planning. Candace and I worked very closely together to bring my vision to life, and I can honestly say that we created my dream wedding!! Our celebration included all of the special touches that mattered most to my husband and me as we joined our lives together. It was, without question, the most special night of my life, and Candace was with me every step of the way!
Candace was great to work with during the planning process; she provided invaluable input and suggestions to us and her collaboration with other vendors was professional and timely. Her assistance in our day-of-coordination was equally invaluable by allowing us to concentrate on our special day and not worrying about all the little things. It is wonderful to look and think back to our day and be able to recall the moments spent with family, friends, and loved ones instead of dealing with coordination aspects.
Candace, the mastermind behind Mingle was FABULOUS to work with! From day one she just "got" our venue. We worked with Candace for nearly a year and a half while we planned our wedding. She connected us with amazing vendors, but never pushed us one way or the other. Aside from Her professionalism and excellent customer service, she truly has an eye for gorgeous aesthetics. She made sure our day went off without a hitch. We could've gotten married without her.
Brandon and I continue to be completely overwhelmed with gratitude for the amount of time, effort, and talent that went into this day. We have wracked our brains trying to figure out how to repay all of these people–or even how to thank them, but truthfully, there are no words to fully express our feelings regarding our wedding 2.0. Candace, and the rest of the vendors had, indeed, pulled off a very, very surprise wedding.
Candace Hightower of Mingle Events was a breath of fresh air as a wedding day coordinator. She was always available to answer my questions, went above and beyond to take care of last minute details, and helped turn my vision into a reality.
