A romantic summer wedding at The Barn at Ike’s Place in Pennsylvania

Like many, Emily & Stephen had to change their original wedding plans to accommodate everything that was going on in the world in 2020 and 2021. When her mother reached out to me, it was less than six months prior to the wedding date and they had made the switch from a full service venue that was out of town to a limited service venue that was a bit closer to home. That meant finding a catering team, florals, transportation, linens and rentals, and so on.

We were so happy to be invited to be a part of that process with them. They were genuinely such a wonderful family to work with and getting to see E & S celebrate their love during their summer wedding was a highlight of my year.

For their design, we worked to create a bit of glamour in the laid back barn venue at The Barn at Ike’s Place in Washington County, PA and we love how Talia Nelson Photography captured their day. This was our second time working with her, and we couldn’t recommend her enough.

Cassandra and the Event Prep Team were extraordinary in all aspects of planning and preparation prior, during and after the wedding. At first we were hesitant to hire a wedding planner, but we could not have done it without her and are beyond thankful for all of their help. At the end of the day you don’t want to be stressed during the wedding planning process and Cassandra and her team eliminated all stress. Cassandra was supportive and always remained positive while trying to plan a wedding during the pandemic. We will look back at our day and always be thankful for Cassandra!!

"The best decision we made"


- Elena & Nick

Event Prep is the best decision you can make for your wedding planning needs. Period. From the beginning vision phases, to the tough decision making moments, Cassandra is there not only as a seasoned professional but as a friend. There were times where I was at my wits end, and Cassandra became my place of peace and calm. She was always 10 steps ahead of the game and guided me in the right direction. She made me feel like my wedding was her only focus and her efforts showed through. My husband and guests were absolutely speechless at our ceremony and reception. They were truly blown away. None of it would've been possible without her. Simply put, Event Prep made my wedding dreams come true.

You will not be disappointed in your selection with Event Prep. Cassandra is the most professional, kind and bubbly spirit you’ll come in contact with.  We both have full time jobs and knew we would need all the extra help we could get.  Cassandra and Event Prep were the answers to my prayers! She made sure that we were all able to enjoy our day and not think twice about what needed to be accomplished. When I needed her, she was right there. I could not possibly fit a list of all the things Cassandra assisted with into this review. However, I can say she is a big reason I am able to look back on my wedding day with joy and happiness. Having the ability to focus on our guests and enjoy the most important day of our lives was priceless.
