Kate and her team at A Charmed Affair are an absolute dream. Kate is without a doubt the most talented, attentive, creative, and caring wedding coordinator in the entire Hudson Valley, if not the state of New York. The superhuman effort she puts forth to help ensure a smooth execution of all your wedding day hopes and dreams will leave you speechless. And her dedication to helping plan out every aspect of your big event is only outdone by her exhaustive knowledge of all the ins and outs of planning a wedding and working with all your various vendors. We can honestly say there is absolutely zero chance we would have been able to pull off our wedding weekend the way we did without Kate working behind the scenes, breaking her back month after month to make sure we walked away ecstatic. She is also an incredible problem solver who gets on top of any issues that might pop up without delay and solves them creatively in a way that is always friendly to your budget. Frankly, Kate and A Charmed Affair are at the pinnacle of the pyramid as far as Wedding Coordinators go. You would honestly be making an enormous mistake in hiring anyone else to help cultivate and execute your big day.

The BEST decision for wedding planning you'll ever Make!!
If you're like me (deer in headlights) when you start to plan for your non conventional wedding You need Kate! We planned our wedding from a distance so I asked a million flustered questions from which vendors she recommended to figuring out the aesthetic details of how we wanted our day to feel and flow. Every person she recommended to us was phenomenal! she basically took what she knew about us from talking on the phone and perfect matched us to a photographer and DJ. She was so organized and easy to work with over email. I was able to take a deep breath and relax with her at the helm! And as is life, our plan was slightly altered by an early November snow storm. Kate and team quickly made plans B C and D and the night went on without a hitch! We couldn't have been happier.
We had a general vision for design, but Kate really took what we pictured above and beyond and made it 10x more magical then we dreamed! We are still getting complements on our personalized hay lounge and people asking for design tips from the formal lounge area. The lighting and table setting were perfectly done. Kate knew just what to use from her large stash of wedding swag to fit with the decor and enhance the experience for us and all our quests. It was so special I'm still reveling!
Kate and the Charmed Affair team are 100% the best decision you'll make for conducting the perfect wedding day!!

The absolute best team!
I would have never survived the wedding planning process without Kate!!! I searched high and low for the right wedding planner and I can say with 100% certainty that Kate is one of a kind and any couple would be incredibly lucky to have her on their team! I had phone calls with several other wedding planners who charged for every last minute of contact or refused to offer any help unless they were charging you down to the last penny. From the start Kate wanted to just make sure that she made the planning process easier for me and her number one goal was helping me have the wedding of my dreams rather than just looking at me as another customer who was paying for select services. She took my calls no matter what time of day it was or if I had spent the prior 3 days on the phone with her already, she answered all my emails within hours and she simply never hesitated when I asked for her help. Her team helped put together the rest of my flowers when I was rushed for time the day before the wedding and made sure all the details were sorted out, which included getting the decorative mason jars onto all the church pews and then transported to the reception and placed in the requested spots. I can say with complete confidence that anyone who hires Kate and her team will be amazed with their services and treated with the most care!
Wonderful to work with! Kate is very professional, organized and has great attention to detail!
Kate from A Charmed Affair is a great planner to have on your team for your wedding or event. Kate has a huge design decor inventory and is knowledgeable about how to use these items to make your event amazing!
