WHAT COUPLES ARE SAYING
From the beginning of our planning process, Cherish was incredible!
She made us feel heard, gave great suggestions and was always just an email or call away when we had any last minute questions. On the day of our wedding, she did a phenomenal of job making the venue look absolutely beautiful and captured the exact theme and feel that we were going for. I truly could not have made it through the day without her!
Cherish made our day incredible for everyone!!
Cherish was incredibly amazing through and through. She always made time for us to make sure things were taken care of. Never once during our big day did we have to think about whether something was good to go or even consider having to make any friends or family help out. Cherish took our mood boards, set things up beautifully and everything was seamless, ahead of schedule and made our day unforgettable and stress free./p>
Words cannot express my gratitude for Cherish with Dream Destination Weddings and Events!
My wedding was something out of a magazine! It was the PERFECT wedding and it is all because of her. I came to her with a simple idea and she worked her magic and brought it to life. If you think you don’t need a wedding planner, think again and if you think you can go with just any one THINK AGAIN! Cherish is a top-notch planner and I am incredibly lucky to have had her help. She always made us feel as though she had everything 100% under control. Trust me, you want this in a planner!! As far as wedding design, she was on point with my vision and truly brought it all to life. I loved everything she came up with! She respected my input and added her special designer eye to my ideas. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly. Everything, every person, every moment…
My love of weddings and planning has followed me for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always carried it over into any work that I’ve done throughout the years. My experience ranges from working as a Food & Beverage Director for a boutique hotel & restaurant brand, working for one of the top catering companies in the Washington D.C Metro area then becoming the Catering Director for one of Portland’s premiere social clubs. Through it out all, I’ve had the opportunity to plan & design weddings, galas, meetings and more for some of the country’s most noted community leaders, socialites, and influencers.
As a wedding and events planner & designer, I’ve been able to zero in on my passion for helping clients and couples create truly memorable experiences that remember to this. There is nothing more satisfying to me than knowing my services made my clients’ day.
Outside of spending time with my husband and life partner, Gregory, and our two fur babies Casper & Gigi, I devote majority of my time learning more about industry trends, catching up with friends & family and getting involved in my community.
I look forward to learning more about YOU and bringing your vision for your next event to life.
“You know that ‘feeling’ when you first meet someone, and it all just clicks? Or when you walk into a room full of people and suddenly you feel so relaxed? That is what I want you to feel as my client.”
