"Christine Paul is in a class all her own. She seemed to have a gift for honing in on exactly how I envisioned my event, and, in fact, she knew more about what I wanted than I did! She truly pulls the day together with grace and ease. I was launching my first book, which, to me, was like my baby. I’d been working on it for two years and I wanted the perfect event to bring it into the world. I knew next to nothing about planning corporate events, but I had a guest list filled with bestselling authors and some of the top editors in the publishing industry, and I wanted the event run smoothly, efficiently and to reflect me as a an author.
I got in touch with Christine and she was able to educate me on how these events worked—I couldn’t believe how much she knew! She is a true expert in her field and I would have been hard-pressed to find an event planner in New York City who has a wider range of talents and breadth of knowledge than Christine. She was one step ahead of me, anticipated all of my needs, and understood my event and its goals within minutes. She pulled off the entire night seamlessly. From the details to the big picture, she’s had it covered (even when I didn’t). My event could not have been more successful! My book is called Wedding Cake for Breakfast: Essays on the Unforgettable First Year of Marriage and I can’t wait for Christine to create the book launch event of my dreams for the next one! I couldn’t have managed a fraction of the evening without her. I’m looking forward to recommending her services to anyone planning a special event because she can take anything lackluster and turn it into something spectacular—I honestly don’t know how she does it! "

"Christine is a very organized, efficient and personable planner that is pleasure to work with. I've worked with her on a number of events at Trump SoHo, from an intimate reception to a large-scale wedding, and each event was treated with the same professionalism and care. Christine is very knowledgeable about our venue. She goes above and beyond traditional planner duties. "
"Christine Paul of Christine Paul Events is one of the most marvelous event planners in New York City!
She is exceptional in that she is so easy to get along with and delightfully personable. While collaborating with Christine on numerous events and wedding in the past three years, I’ve found her to be very organized and commutative. She cultivates new and creative details for each event: every one distinctive and characteristic to her clients’ individual needs. Whether a multi-dimensional corporate event, or landmark social occasion; Christine and her team consistently exceed expectations. What an advantage to have her guide you through a seamless affair! "

With every event we have collaborated on together you never cease to astound your clients and as well as your vendors. Your ability to handle whatever comes your way with grace and precision is what makes you so amazing-your clients love you and your team of vendors loves you for that!
How will we ever forget our Brooklyn rooftop wedding. . . From the looming rain storms to oppressive heat and humidity-you handled everything so graciously. As your caterer at that event-I cannot praise you enough for working your magic that day. In the end the bride and groom have the wedding memories of their dreams which are what we all strive for on “Team Christine Paul!”
“You’re simply the best. . . .better than all the rest. . .! "

"Christine Paul is a bride’s life saver! She is beyond organized and thorough. Her ideas are creative and can be as practical or outlandish as you'd like. She operates with total style and grace and never breaks a sweat. She can complement your ideas or open your eyes to what's new and trendy. She will cover every aspect of your big day and you will never find her in your way. I was able to ENJOY my 2nd wedding with nothing to worry or even think about.She has a take charge attitude and just gets it done. The answer to any question that day was "Ask Christine". My wedding was 5 years ago and this year she handled my sons Bar Mitzvah, again, repeat performance. As a working mom and executive I always knew she had it covered. Her attention to detail is incredible. The party was a tremendous success. Once again, every detail handled, I enjoyed every minute! She is a true "pro" and an absolute delight to work with. She is a gift! "

"Dear Christine Paul:
On behalf of me and my partner, we would like to thank you for your honesty, professionalism, and expertise during the all the events we coordinated on. Working with Christine Paul Events has been quite an experience; one that we now compare new business relationships to. What we appreciated most was the time you took before engaging us to help us understand what your customers are looking for in luxury transportation needs. During that time, we became comfortable with you and your methodology which made us confident that we could deliver services on a level with your high standards and expectations. We wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone looking for a wedding planner who openly communicates, is diligent, responsive and extremely thorough. You kept us well informed of all event details and we had the opportunity to fully discuss any issues pertinent for the special day. While we were just one of the many pieces to this successful event, you worked with us and we could see how genuine and sincere you are in your dealings as well as your concern for all parties involved. You very effectively managed the various requests from your client while at the same time keeping us well informed on the issues."
Oren Schneider, CEOPrecision Concierge LLC
"The first word that comes to mind when it comes to Christine Paul is passion. Christine has a genuine passion for what she does. Her passion shines through in the care and enthusiasm with which she works. Her love is in the details. Another word that comes to mind is calm. Christine navigates through the sea of myriad details that is wedding planning with a calm demeanor that embodies professionalism, confidence and a joyful spirit. I have seen her deftly handle challenges with a smile. This makes the entire process of the wedding enjoyable for the bride and groom---as it should be. It brings peace. Finally, as an interfaith minister, perhaps what I most appreciate is that Christine never forgets what the day is truly all about---love. Your love is the heart and soul of the day, and she knows it. This is not to be underestimated. "

"Christine Paul is the penultimate wedding planner in New York City. Her and her team helped us organize our big day so that we could enjoy every moment with our guests in a stress-free environment. Her team promptly and energetically responded to every email or phone call we had, met with us several times to update on progress, attended the final dress fitting, advised at our final wedding The Carlyle walk-through in addition to coordinating/confirming with all our vendors the week prior to our actual wedding day. They also helped create our “day of” schedule and confirmed all of the vendors were present and up-to-speed regarding the schedule during our Big Day. Christine and her team are true professionals and their attention to detail is unsurpassed, including ensuring delivery of the dress and helping both parties get ready. We really don't know what we would've done without Christine Paul. She truly made our lives leading up to the big day manageable and relaxed. We would recommend Christine Paul to anyone and everyone. They were extraordinary! Thank you Christine for everything! "
Ellie and Ty Buckelew, The Carlyle
"I cannot say enough about Christine and her staff. My mother-in-law convinced my husband and I to interview wedding planners. We didn't think we needed a wedding planner but we reluctantly agreed to meet with Christine. From the first minute of our first meeting, Christine and I clicked and I knew I wanted to work with her. She is incredibly organized, professional, knowledgeable, savvy and efficient. We booked all of the vendors for our wedding ourselves and then a month before the wedding, we handed everything over to Christine. She was available and accessible to us whenever we needed her - she is incredibly responsive and proactive. She organized our entire wedding weekend - from the rehearsal dinner for 150 people at The Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City to our wedding in New Jersey (which involved Christine and her staff coordinating the transportation of 120 out-of-town guests). Everything ran smoothly and exactly as planned, thanks to Christine! My husband and our families were able to relax and enjoy our wedding weekend without a worry. Christine took charge and was our advocate throughout the entire process and wedding weekend. We cannot thank Christine enough for how incredibly she executed our wedding weekend. I highly recommend Christine Paul to any bride, she is the best! "

"We wanted to thank you ever so much for being our wedding planner extraordinary. We feel so truly blessed that you took on board our wedding...and the wedding seriously wouldn't have been this perfect if it wasn't for you! You took control of the events of the day and made us feel comfortable at all times. You not only managed our vision throughout the planning process but also provided us with useful advice. Above that, everything on the wedding day just fitted together. You were also there for us at all times and were so flexible in accommodating our needs, even with getting our games for our picnic fun day! All of our guests had a great time, but more importantly, an amazing experience! They are still gushing about the wedding! Not to forget our experience as well...we had such a blast! The wedding reflected our characters and personalities - trendy, casual and most importantly, fun!Throughout this process, you have become a friend, which for us, is certainly one of the best things!Last but not least, thank you again for making our wedding one of the most memorable events for us - we cannot express how much we loved every moment of it! " Cassie and Nick Chan, Trump Soho
"My husband and I just got married in June 2011 in Brooklyn, New York. We were reluctant to hire a wedding planner for a couple of reasons; we didn't want to spend the money, and we thought that we could plan it better than anyone else--it was our wedding, after all! We begun the planning process, but a few months into it, we realized that we needed help, lots of help. Our vision was so unique that we worried it couldn't be done. We had our venue. We had our photographers. And, that's about it! The wedding was four months away at that point, and we had ideas in abundance but lacked the time and resources to execute them. That's when my friend referred me to Christine. In spite of our resistance to hire a wedding planner, my husband and I met with Christine to discuss our plans. By the time we left, I no longer felt anxious; all of my worries had completely vanished, as Christine went over every detail with us, generously offering her expert advice and encouraging our vision, which she immediately understood and embraced. By the time we left, we felt so uplifted and inspired--we knew that with Christine's help, we would be able to pull off the wedding of our dreams! I honestly don't know how we would have done it without Christine Paul Events. They met every challenge (and we had a LOT of challenges) with enthusiasm, and they never stopped supporting us, even when the going got tough. For instance, we had planned to have our wedding reception on the rooftop of an old warehouse in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We were counting on good weather. Christine presented us with back-up rain plans, but we could not let go of our vision. It was going to be on that rooftop, no matter what! That weekend, the temperatures plummeted and thick gray clouds moved in to stay--it was cold and drizzly, and the rooftop was out of the question. Christine rallied the wedding vendors, and they collaborated to turn the small indoor area of the warehouse into an amazing space that delighted and surprised everyone, including us! Even though the reception didn't happen on the rooftop, it still achieved our vision, and most importantly, we all had a spectacular, unforgettable night. Thank you, Christine. We heart you and your team!! "

"Peace of mind is exactly what we have knowing Christine is involved. Christine managed the decor element of our wedding and became our go to person for everything. She truly cares about making your wedding day amazing. She knows that every detail is important and how much this day means to you. She's dependable, organized, creative, and collaborative. She listens to your needs and guides you through the process effortlessly. She was our FAVORITE vendor - the one we knew we never needed to worry about since she was always 2 steps ahead at all times. She was definitely our peace of mind on our wedding day - knowing she was putting everything together - we knew we would walk into a spectacular Maritime Parc without overlooking any details. My husband and I would often say "if Christine's involved, we're fine." We were in great hands - we LOVE her!!! And her amazing staff."
Christina and Christian Lipinski, Maritime Parc
From the Groom…
"We're still recovering from all the festivities, but Megan and I wanted to send through a huge thank you to you and your team for putting together such an amazing wedding. Everything went so well, and your planning made everything go super smoothly. Most importantly, I think our wedding was very "us," while still being a great time for our guests. You really helped match us up with the perfect vendors! Everyone had a great time (including us!), and we couldn't have asked for anything more. You really went above and beyond, especially helping us navigate the inevitable last-minute stresses. Thanks again for helping create such a magical day for us."
From the Bride…
"I also wanted to thank you especially for helping to keep me sane on the wedding day! Everything was a but more overwhelming than I thought it would be and you always knew the right words to keep me calm. Thank you so much for taking care of EVERYTHING on the day! Our families were so appreciative of every minor detail you ironed out. You have a special knack for being firm when you need to but keeping an extremely positive outlook. The ceremony and reception were everything I wanted them to be! I loved when my friends or family would ask me where we found our officiant or where we found the caterer or the Galapagos Art Space. My answer was always "Christine". Nothing would have been as special if it weren't for your recommendations. We are now at the airport ready to get on our plane and couldn't be happier. Thanks again for everything. We look forward to seeing you when we get back."
Megan and Ben Dweck
