Although hiring a wedding planner was my mother-in-laws idea, I really don't know HOW IN THE WORLD we could have pulled off such an amazing event without them!!! Andrea and Clarence were SO awesome! They truly did go above and beyond to make our day special and memorable. My husband & I had to simply enjoy ourselves and the day... Andrea and Clarence took care of everything else.
They got a caterer for us with MUCH more food (that was simply delicious) then we expected and WITHIN our budget. They did a wonderful job organizing and decorating our hall with the small budget we had.
We let them know what we wanted at our wedding and we got it. I'm far from a picky bride, but I couldn't have imagined a MORE PERFECT day!! If we asked for something, they did what they could to
work it in. For ANYONE out there wondering if they should get a planner or not.....GET ONE! If we didn't have Andrea and Clarence there for us...our day would NOT have been as wonderful and as
memorable as it was. THANKS ANDREA & CLARENCE FOR EVERYTHING.

Creative Concepts and Advancement is without a doubt one of the best vendors you will find the DMV area. Our planner (Andrea) went well above and beyond to ensure that my wife and I had a lovely
wedding. Andrea was able to work with the other vendors, our mothers and anyone else involved so the bride and I could fully enjoy our day. I highly recommend their service and will use them

Andrea and Clarence from CCAA Events truly showed they know what they are doing. Technical problems delayed a slide-show the uncle of the bride had prepared, so Andrea and Clarence quickly reacted
and moved things around. This way I was able to get all the shots the couple had requested, and still stay in the timeframe that was agreed upon. It was a pleasure working with them and I look
forward to future assignments where we meet!

CCAA Events planned my son's Super 14th birthday party. They were instrumental in helping me pick the venue, food, beverages and DJ. Andrea was on-site to oversee the set-up and made
sure everything was ready to go when the first guest arrived. She even took it upon herself to stay until my family got there (which she did not have to do). The best part of all...CCAA
put everything together and came in (way) under budget! I will definitely use them again for other events!

Creative Concepts and Advancements planned my 39th birthday party and it was fabulous! I'm a true diva and they made sure I got the princess treatment I wanted! I didn't have to worry
about anything. Clarence negotiated the room rental, food, drinks AND entertainment. He even worked it out so that my husband could come in early and decorate. All my girlfriends
and I had to do was show up. CCAA took it a step further by making sure we had a private host for the night, by checking in on me and my guests frequently, and by taking plenty of pictures for
my scrapbook! If you're planning a party, CCAA is the one-stop-shop!

I hired CCAA to assist with planning my daughter's 21st birthday. They helped negotiate and secure the room rental, food, beverage and entertainment. My daughter had a black and red
themed party and it turned out beautifully. CCAA had a team ready to greet us and our 100+ guest list when we walked in the door. My daughter and all her friends had a great time.

Andrea's attention to detail far exceeds expectations. Her dedication to perfection and her methods of process and execution have time and again proven to be what the industry standard ought to
strive for. I would recommend her highly for any event especially complex ones, as I have complete confidence in her methods and her abilities to get excellent results.
~ Yema N.
Andrea and I were together on a corporate wide cultural event that was open to all Capital One associates. She had some very creative ideas relating to marketing the events and concepts for
how the event should be done. Andrea used skills from her outside business to help with details that may have been overlooked. I would strongly recommend Andrea's work.
~ Tammy S.
Andrea is well-organized, efficient and collaborative. She has assisted me on several occasions in my leadership role with the African American Network at Capital One. She has provided
administrative, facilitation and event coordination support.... She is responsive, proactive and able to effectively interact with -- and influence, when necessary -- associates at all levels.
~ Lisa W.
Andrea is a true self-starter in the purest sense. She did all the event planning for company meetings. She also managed the internal training for the services organization. I would
highly recommend Andrea and would gladly work with her again.
~ Larry T.
As the only minority member on the management team, she (Andrea) was well respected and highly efficient. She streamlined office operations, and ran a tight ship for her staff. She was severely
missed, as it took the company over a year and half and 3 different candidates to find a suitable replacement. Her attention to detail and quality control was outstanding. Most of all she was easy to
work with and absolutely approachable.
~ Tammy W.
Clarence planned my girlfriend's birthday party. I provided him with a budget and a few ideas and he turned her day into a day to remember! He did such a good job I have to think of
what to do next year to top it!
~ Dave B.
Clarence is an experienced event planner with major connections - he knows everyone, everywhere - in the entertainment industry, Corporate America, you name it! He always exhibits a
positive, can-do attitude no matter how crazy things get. One of the most memorable experiences that comes to mind was during Super Bowl XXXIX in Jacksonville, FL - He managed the media relations,
celebrity bowling and golf events flawlessly!
~ Tammy Z.
I only trust my events to Clarence. Period.
~ Will A.
Clarence increased my bar sales from $1,000 to over $10,000 on Saturday nights!! He obviously has a strong understanding of club promotion. He helped me turn the business around and I
eventually sold it. I don't know what I would have done without Clarence.
~ Kurt B.
My Mom's 60th surprise birthday party was incredible! The staff at Creative Concepts and Advancement exceeded our expectations! They took care of everything - the entertainment, food, decorating,
everything - All we had to do was show up... Folks are still talking about how much fun they had and how well planned the party was... Thank you Clarence and Andrea!
~ Darryl C.
Andrea is a true gem! Her attention to detail and organization skills allowed me to actually enjoy planning (and not stress over) the wedding. She provided solid advice and professional vendor
referrals..We didn't have a huge budget but Andrea made our wedding look like a million bucks!
~ Michelle S.
Clarence made my 40th birthday party one to remember! With a modest budget, his staff transformed a bland (restaurant) banquet room into a warm, beautiful, colorful, party room... I don't know how
they did it, I'm just glad they were able to make it happen. I have recommended Creative Concepts and Advancement to everyone I know because I trust their work.

Thanks CCAA Events for making my Superbowl Victory Bash at Club Mansion in Miami a night to remember.
