As good as it gets

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Kristen Delano for our wedding, and I must say, she truly made our special day an unforgettable experience. From the very beginning, Kristen's dedication to ensuring our wedding went off without a hitch was evident. Her coordination skills were nothing short of remarkable, as she flawlessly managed every detail of the event.

What really stood out to me about Kristen was her unwavering presence throughout the entire process. It seemed as if she had an uncanny ability to be everywhere at once, making sure every aspect of the day was running smoothly. Whether it was managing vendors, coordinating the timeline, or simply being there to calm our nerves, Kristen was always right by our side.

Her years of experience in the industry were truly evident in the way she handled even the most unexpected challenges with grace and efficiency. No problem was too big for her to tackle, and her solutions were always thoughtful and creative. But beyond her professional prowess, it was Kristen's positivity and high emotional intelligence that truly set her apart. In the midst of the inevitable wedding planning stress, her upbeat demeanor was a breath of fresh air that kept us grounded and excited.

Kristen's ability to understand not only the logistics but also the emotions tied to such a significant day was truly remarkable. She seemed to anticipate our needs before we even realized them ourselves. This level of attention and care made us feel not just like clients, but like friends.

In a nutshell, Kristen Delano is an exceptional wedding coordinator who goes above and beyond to make dreams come true. Her flawless execution, combined with her genuine positivity and profound emotional intelligence, make her an invaluable asset to any couple embarking on the journey of planning their wedding. We are endlessly grateful for Kristen's dedication, and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone seeking a seamless, joy-filled wedding day.

The best of the best!!!!

Most people say that wedding planning is stressful and overwhelming. If you’re looking for the exact opposite experience, go with Kristen!!!! It was the best decision we made during our wedding planning process. From day 1 she was there to help with every detail and answer every question. And for procrastinators like my husband and I, she kept us right on track and on budget!!! Kristen never made us doubt a single decision we made and supported us through the whole process. She truly became a friend to us and we couldn’t be more thankful. We wish we could give more than 5 stars!!!

Enjoy the wedding planning process w/ Kristen

I could not have planned our wedding without Kristen! When we first met with Kristen, I was looking for partial planning or day of event management but after sharing some roadblocks early in our wedding planning process she mentioned her full-service planning and I was sold.
Having Kristen allowed me to enjoy the wedding planning process and I looked forward to every meeting with her! She came prepared with a list of questions, vendor decisions, and kept us on track with our budget. Her online planning portal kept things incredibly organized, and it was an easy way for me to track what was happening, how things were progressing and track the budget.

Kristen found all our vendors and negotiated the vendor rates to meet our budget and save us money. She communicated with them regularly and made sure they were all set for the big day! Our venue was a challenging one and she kept things professional but persisted through roadblocks to stay true to our vision and make our day perfect!

Our wedding day was stress-free and seamless. The day before, there was ceremony location switch and I barely even noticed. The day of our wedding, there was an issue with the flowers, but I never knew until after she solved the problem. I was able to enjoy the whole day with family and friends.

In addition to her wedding planning services, she offered her inventory of décor items to help us save on costs. This included easels for signs, pictures frames, card box, candle holders, and table numbers. These little costs add up, but Kristen came to the rescue again saving us more money!

I cannot praise Kristen and her work enough. If you need a wedding planner, Kristen is the one you want!
