Thank you Karen!
Highly recommend Karen for full planning, coordination, and design. Her and team absolutely delivered the day-of and made our wedding day unforgettable. She is very prompt, organized all the while composed and chill throughout the whole wedding planning. She genuinely has a passion for event planning and it shows in her results and relationships with vendors and past couples. Wish we could do this all again!Sent on 10/16/2019

Karen is amazing!
Karen is absolutely AMAZING! She makes dreams come true! We hired her as our day of coordinator, but felt like she did wayyyyy more than that. She helped find vendors in my area and gave suggestions of folks who she thought would be good to work with. I loved working with her throughout the wedding process. I've known Karen since 2006 and when I found out she was doing event planning, I knew I had to work with her! Even though we are friends, she was still very professional. Communicating with her was really easy and efficient.Sent on 09/27/2019
The day of Karen made sure the everything was set. She worked with all my vendors. They all had nothing but great things to say about Karen, how she communicated, and how she really kept everyone in the loop about what is happening. I sent her a whole description of how I wanted things to be done and she made did it, but even better than I had imagined!
Thank you, Karen (& Alex, who is her partner & her assistant for the day)!
Do yourself a favor and hire Karen!

Best decision we made planning our wedding!
My fiancé and I were married at the Brick in Point Loma this past December. Karen was recommended to us by a family member and hiring her for wedding planning was one of the best decisions we made. Other than selecting the location, we worked with Karen from the very beginning. From our initial meeting, Karen was very professional and organized but still made the thought of planning a wedding enjoyable and exciting. With our particular venue, it was a blank slate, so we had to hire every vendor separately which sounded like so much work. But with Karen’s experience and network of vendors, selecting each vendor from the DJ, catering, rentals, photobooth, and photographer was one of the most enjoyable parts of the planning process. We really appreciated that Karen would give us a few vendors to compare before making our final decisions. We never felt pressured to choose a particular vendor, instead we felt like Karen knew exactly what we wanted and recommended vendors based on our specific needs. Not only did Karen help with vendors, she also created all of our save-the-dates, invitations, day of wedding signage, and name cards. We gave Karen creative freedom when it came to all these details and it couldn’t have come out any better. She also helped create our floorplan and with the size of our wedding we felt like it worked out perfectly. On the day of the wedding, everything went as smoothly as one could hope for. We never felt like Karen was missing on the day of the wedding, instead she was always on top of everything. At the end of the night, all of our guests had nothing but positive things to say about our wedding and all the small details. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to have Karen as our wedding planner. We recommend her to all of our family and friends that are looking for a wedding planner because it was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had.Sent on 02/10/2020
