Brian & Sara Wedding | Charmed Affair Followup

My wife Sara and I just wrapped up our wedding weekend at The Barn at Liberty Farms, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience working with Kate and A Charmed Affair!

Kate, Danielle, and the rest of their team were SO easy to work with, and they were truly able to accommodate our every need, and all with a smile on their faces. It didn't matter how specific our requests were, or how much time it all took to bring to life -- they made it happen (and then some!)

We received so many rave reviews from our guests about how magical the Barn looked and how easily the wedding flowed, it was just an incredible weekend that we did not want to end.

Booking a wedding over Memorial Day upstate can be tough, as there's a lot going on with the kick-off to summer, but Kate and Danielle always made us feel like we were their only clients and were available at the drop of a hat to meet and chat with us, no matter how frantic we sounded!

We'd be happy to recommend them to any couple looking to get married upstate, and will absolutely be back to see them again the next time we're in the Hudson area! They really helped us bring our vision to life, and for that we are eternally grateful!


Best,
Brian & Sara

If I Could Give 10 Star Reviews, I Would!!!

Beyond incredible experience with Kate and the ACA team!! From start to finish, Kate was just absolutely amazing. She was always available to answer questions, calm my nerves, talk through things, and give recommendations. EVERYTHING. I even had family and friends tell me how impressed they were with her and her team the night of. She brought our vision to life and we couldn't have asked for more!

Kate is Incomparable

Kate and the team at A Charmed Affair deserve of all the thanks. We truly couldn鈥檛 imagine doing our wedding without Kate and we know that our families feel the exact same way. We can鈥檛 count how many people came up to us at the wedding to tell us how much fun they were having and how beautiful the day was, and that is all due to Kate!
Kate is a consummate professional: incredibly organized, knowledgeable, and responsive. She knew what we wanted when we couldn't articulate it ourselves and always had an answer. She helped us when we asked and also gave us space to maneuver when we wanted it. She was always there to go through contracts, sit on the phone with a vendor, and assuage our fears. If you want a wedding planner and team who will not let you down, look no further than Kate and A Charmed Affair.
