We love Kathy! Her meticulous planning and kind demeanor made my wedding so easy to plan. Kathy knows exactly how to plan a gorgeous wedding and she does not mess around with flaky people or vendors. We would've been completely lost without her and I cannot recommend her enough.Sent on 07/30/2018

Our daughter's September 2008 wedding in Boulder was a wonderful experience for all involved, and we fully acknowledge the important role that Kathy Vaughn played as our wedding planner. She has broad knowledge of the local market and introduced and exposed us to a variety of venues, caterers, florists, musicians and photographers. She is a good listener and tries hard to understand and respond to the clients' needs, desires, and budgets.Sent on 11/04/2008
Kathy is very organized and she kept us on schedule, employing a pleasant and professional style. During the evening of the wedding Kathy took care of every detail, thereby enabling us all to relax and truly enjoy this special occasion. Kathy did everything she promised to do, and also threw in many extra services that were particularly helpful to our daughter in Boulder and to us in California.
A "Beautiful Memory" is an understatement for what Kathy Vaughn will help her clients experience.
