I had the honor of working with Kristen Lester on a recent wedding event in Cumberland Gap, VA. This wedding coordinated by Kristen was held at the Karlan Mansion and was one of the most beautiful and well organized outdoor wedding events I'd ever participated in. Do to a few last minute hiccups, Kristen was able to display her flexibility and responsiveness in preparing for inclement weather (even though the weather turned out to be perfect), tardy DJs, and ability to satisfy the Bride and Groom event outside her standard scope of work. Every wedding has its share of unpredictable mayhem and chaos but where Kristen was able to stand out from others in her field was in her ability to manage this chaos. The ability to remain calm under pressure and assure the bride that everything IS going to turn out just fine is what keeps the wedding smooth and party going allllll night long...
In my profession as a videographer, I see A LOT of mishaps and many flustered planners running around without the organization and confidence shown by Kristen Lester. Wedding Planning is no easy job and the stress is comparable to that of a bomb squad disabling a small nuclear warhead, one wrong move and everything could be blamed on you.
Given the above performance metrics and my most recent experience I would recommend Kristen as a top 5 choice in any future business venture.
I appreciate your abilities. It is a rare gift to be able to successfully create and manage that once-in-a-lifetime-event that people will always remember. A great planner makes for a happy bride which makes for an extremely happy groom which makes a perfect wedding day and a great wedding video. Thanks for a job well done. 5 Stars!
