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.

Hiring Kate and her team to coordinate and plan our wedding was one the best decisions we've ever made. On our wedding day, I was expecting guests to come up to us and compliment the usual--food, music, flowers, etc., but what was most surprising and satisfying was the number of people who said, "this is the one of the best executed weddings I've ever been to." And it was true! Everything went off without a hitch. Everything was perfect. Kate made herself available to answer my extremely long, detailed and manic emails for over a year. She gave the best vendor recommendations and the greatest advice. When I emailed her 48 hours before the wedding with an insane escort card idea, she didn't hesitate to jump on it. I'm not entirely sure she got any sleep, but the end result was the perfect encapsulation of my wedding vision and more. When the bridal party and I walked into the venue before everyone got there, I couldn't believe all the incredible extra details Kate put together. She took all of my vague and sometimes inconsistent ideas and turned it into the greatest time of our lives. I can't honesty think of a single thing that went wrong that day. If you're on the fence, don't be. The service that Kate and her team delivered went beyond any expectation I had.
