I had Colleen plan my 16th birthday party and to say it was amazing is an understatement! The games she created and the decorations were incredible. She made the night feel so special. Pick her as your planner!!

Colleen served as the event coordinator for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with how the day turned out! Colleen is extremely organized, thoughtful with her suggestions, and (most importantly!) easy to work with. Our wedding day went off without a hitch, and Colleen's support exceeded our expectations. She did a great job, and we would happily recommend her to anyone looking for event support.

Colleen was wonderful to work with in the final weeks leading up to our wedding. She was attentive to details, thorough, calm, and always a problem solver. She made sure all our priorities were met and made it look easy. We were so grateful to have her in our corner, and look forward to recommending her to all our friends and family!

Colleen was amazing to work with! We had a few changes with our venue's event coordinators leading up to the wedding, but once Colleen took over, we were instantly put at ease. We are so thankful to have had Colleen work with us the last few months of the planning process. Colleen was responsive to any and all questions and extremely accommodating. We knew we were in great hands and it made the process a lot easier. Colleen worked really well with the rest of our vendors and helped give us the wedding of our dreams! We would 100% recommend working with Colleen for any event you are planning.

The best decision we made for our wedding was working with Colleen as our day of coordinator. From the moment we reached out on her website, Colleen was extremely responsive and easy to communicate with. She was always available for any questions we had and scheduled phone calls with us to make sure we stuck to our timeline.


My husband and I were both very naive to the amount of work that would need to be done the morning of our wedding but Colleen knew exactly what we need. She took all the stress and anxiety away from us and set the scene for the wedding we had been dreaming about.


All of our vendors have had nothing but wonderful things to say about working with Colleen. She was able to take the timelines that each individual vendor had developed and merge them to make one cohesive order of events for the day of our wedding.


Colleen went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined. She brought ideas that helped elevate our theme while never taking away from the vision we had for our day. You can tell Colleen is passionate about what she does. She rises to every challenge and puts so much love and attention into every detail.


I am admittedly an anxious person but Colleen met every challenge with a positive and professional attitude which calmed many of my wedding related nerves. I felt extremely comfortable having her in charge of our day and we truly cannot put into words how thankful we are to have had her there to help us. She was our wedding wonder woman!


We wish we had Colleen involved in our wedding planning process sooner because of how helpful and supportive she was. Both of us would highly recommend working with Colleen for whatever event you may be planning and hope to work with her again!

Colleen was such a tremendous help in the planning of my friend’s bridal shower! She helped create a true vision for the event from just a few ideas that I had. The event was truly spectacular thanks to her talent and attention to detail. I can’t wait to use Colleen for my next party!

We were so thrilled to work with Coll It Entertaining! The way Colleen took so much pressure off of us with the planning was great. She made a step-by-step itinerary with all the details that was easy to follow. She contacted all outside vendors and staff. She coordinated all decorations, furniture, layout, etc. She even designed a fantastic gender reveal that the whole party loved!! What a day!! Coll It Entertaining made our wedding and gender reveal an effortless and unforgettable experience!

Colleen’s attention to detail is unmatched! Once a theme for my baby shower was decided she made sure that every decoration tied together, no matter how small. She got to know my likes and dislikes, and worked with the catering team to incorporate my favorite foods and pregnancy cravings. It really felt like my shower and not just a generic event!

Colleen makes her clients feel very comfortable, so much so that you feel as if she is another friend at the party. However, Colleen is very professional, resourceful and truly a partner in your event. No detail is overlooked. We are happy that Colleen will be helping us with the wedding also and will be a steady presence for us that day.

Colleen was fantastic to work with as both a client of my calligraphy & design business and as an event planner! She is extremely organized, has a clear vision, and is always available with answers. Even with changing plans during COVID, Colleen kept me apprised of changes and was easy to collaborate with during the design process. I am excited to recommend Colleen as an event coordinator for friends and family and look forward to working with her again.
