Carrie knows the industry in and out.  She provided us with options that were professional, concise, and were as well versed as herself.  The time leading up to our wedding, she was calming for us and allowed us to enjoy our day.  She is also very sweet, and it felt like having a great friend at our wedding taking care of us.  Highly recommended for event planning!

My dearest Carrie,

How could we ever thank you enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives?  I was truly 100% stress-free the entire weekend and that was all thanks to you.  From the pre-planning to the day of, it was all fun and flawless.  I never thought I would say this but there isn’t one single thing I would have changed.

All the love in the world to you, Brian and Jonathan!

Dear Carrie:
It is with the greatest of pleasure that we thank Touch Of Gold Events for their meticulous planning, extraordinary design and execution of our daughter’s wedding on September 1, 2013, at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.  It was positively the most gorgeous event imaginable.  As noted in the slew of thank you notes subsequently received from guests, “The entire wedding was magnificent and memorable.”   Your attention to detail, unique touches, plus extraordinary suggestions, created a glorious affair that everyone will remember for the rest of their lives. It was sumptuous, you are the best, and we can’t thank the Montage Hotel enough for recommending you.

“Carrie planned our wedding last July at the Surf and Sand Resort in Laguna Beach. My husband and I didn’t really know what to expect when getting a wedding planner, but Carrie by far exceeded our expectations! Not only was she on top of everything for us, she really got to know us as friends, not as another one of her clients. She was so helpful with everything, and always let us make our own decision on what we wanted for our wedding. Not only did Carrie do an exceptional job planning our wedding, the vendors she had for us did an amazing job as well. We had the time of our lives and I know our guests did as well. Our wedding was a day that we will always remember thanks to Carrie.”

Cheryl & Mark Chiappelli, Bride & Groom

“When we came home from our honeymoon and looked at pictures from our wedding day, we were filled with joy upon remembering how amazing and beautiful the day was.  Every detail was perfect.  We knew we were in good hands when we met you at our tasting, and throughout the entire planning process you continued to meet our expectations.  The day of, we knew we had nothing to worry about with you there from beginning to end.  We appreciate how available you made yourself to us through countless emails and calls, and we truly felt like we were the only couple you were working with.  Thank you for making our wedding a memorable, exciting, and happy experience.”

Aubrey and Peter Karr, Bride & Groom

“We cannot thank you enough for the professionalism and attention to detail that you provide for each and every one of our wedding couples.  It is such a joy knowing that when a wedding couple chooses you as their coordinator everything will go off without a hitch!  You think of every minute detail and remain so calm under pressure it is no wonder that every wedding you do is perfection.  Thank you again for everything that you do and we look forward to another successful year in 2013!”

“Carrie Goldberg is an amazing wedding and event planner. She is top of the line. She is organized, creative, responsive, kind, thoughtful and always on her toes. I am a Music Video and Commercial Producer so I deal with large and small productions all the time. I am a control freak and like things done in very specific ways. I was concerned about hiring a wedding planner because I have huge expectations. Carrie knocked it out of the park for me. We were having an engagement party on October 27th, 2012 and we weren’t planning on getting married until next October 2013. My Fiancé and I then decided to instead have a last minute crazy surprise wedding on our engagement party date. None of our family or guests knew about this. Carrie had less than a week and half to throw us an over-the-top amazing surprise wedding. I knew that we had little time to put this together, but that didn’t mean that I didn’t want the most detailed beautiful event I had always dreamed of. Carrie supplied me with the best vendors both competitive price wise and quality wise. She stepped up like a friend to me to help me make decisions on things like flower detail and colors (because I didn’t have my best friend Lauren in on the secret surprise to consult with.) She got me specialty items last minute like a confetti machine and a black and white custom dance floor. She put extra thought and detail into things I didn’t have time to think about such as the signs that go on the backs of the husband and wife dinner chairs. The schedule she put together for the night was immaculate. Everything ran perfectly smooth and on time and she even planned for a little OT at the Ritz Carlton because she foresaw that I wouldn’t want the party to end at 1am. Lastly, she was able to keep the entire Ritz Carlton, all of her vendors and everyone else quiet about the surprise, which was very important to us. I can’t recommend Carrie enough as a wedding planner. She is worth every dime and won’t disappoint. I absolutely plan on hiring her again for future events and will be recommending her to my close friends and celebrity clients.”

Megan Gutman, Bride

“We were very fortunate to have met Carrie who helped plan and organize our wedding.  From the day we met Carrie, she was extremely professional, friendly and always responsive to our calls and e-mails.  Her turnaround time was typically a few hours and we never went more than a day without receiving a response, even during the birth of her first child!  Carrie knew the in’s and out’s of our venue, Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey, as well as vendors and decorative ideas that typically go overlooked.  She had the intuition to provide creative ideas and suggestions when needed but knew when to give us our freedom to make the final decision.  She was always supportive and enthusiastic.

Carrie was hired to be a “day-of” coordinator but her responsibilities went beyond just the wedding date.  We met at her office several times to discuss the smallest details and she helped answer any questions we may have had.  She met us again for a casual meeting at the venue to discuss logistics and of course was present for the rehearsal.  She was always punctual.

On the day of the wedding, Carrie and her staff members knew their roles precisely and were on point to make sure everything ran smoothly.  We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding coordinator.

Overall, Carrie was definitely worth the cost of having a coordinator as her experience was what one would expect from a seasoned planner.  We whole heartedly recommend Carrie and her team to any couple looking for a reliable, hard-working and endearing coordinator.”

Velika & Min Chung, Bride & Groom

“I’ve been in the Event Industry for almost 20 years and have worked with hundreds of planners on thousands of events.  Every once in a while, we have the pleasure of working with someone who is a standout in their profession.  We’re lucky to have had this experience with Carrie and her team at Touch of Gold Events.

From the initial planning stages months prior to the event day to the execution of the event on the day of, Carrie and her team are a pleasure to work with.  They’re a perfect balance of being hands on while still allowing me and my crew to do what we do best.

One of the key elements to a successful event is not just having great people, but having a great synergy between your entire team.  As a DJ, I get to catch a bird’s eye view of everything that’s going on throughout an event.  I’ve seen Carrie work with a multitude of vendors and I attribute the smooth flow of each event I’ve worked with her on to her professionalism, creativity, intelligence and love for creating a spectacular event!”

Jon Brown, Owner/DJ Unite Entertainment

“As a makeup artist and hair stylist, a planner like Carrie is who you want!  First of all, because she is so organized and answers every email in record time, you just know that the timing of everything will be perfection. Plus, the bride is so happy because she’s been dealing with Carrie since day one.  A happy bride means EVERYone else is happy.  Carrie has great relationships with vendors too, which means we all want to do our best work not only for the bride but for her, too. I think what it all boils down to is, is that on the happiest day of your life, you want to be surrounded by people who are as happy as you are and that’s what you get when you hire Carrie Goldberg and Touch of Gold Events!”
