Welcome to one of the best times of your life!
My name is Kerri Hatter and I would be thrilled to be a part of your wedding. Several years ago, I was in your same position - I was so excited to be getting married, but I was also a little stressed because I realized I now needed to plan one of the most important days of my life. Because I had spent so many years in the event planning industry, I was sure I could do it myself, and when I did, I realized I had found my new passion as well as my new career, but I also found out a wedding coordinator is essential to planning the big day.
From many years of experience, I know that in order to create unforgettable events, you have to focus on the details, build relationships with vendors and provide impeccable customer service. Fortunately, these are the things I thrive on! This wedding is about you and my goal is to make sure you are stress free during the planning and execution and that things turn our exactly how you envisioned for your big day.
Time goes by so quickly, you should focus on experiencing the moments while I focus on making them happen.

Kerri was wonderful to work with throughout our wedding planning process and she made the actual wedding date a breeze! Even though we only hired her 'officially' for day/week of coordination, she walked us through the entire planning process and was always there to help us at any time. As we got closer to the wedding, she was supportive and reassuring and took the stress out of those last few days. Our actual wedding went perfectly and everything was so smooth and stress-free for us. She took care of all of the hundreds of 'moving parts' of a wedding and let us enjoy our wedding with our family and friends. We can't imagine how hectic things would have been without all of her help!Sent on 04/14/2013

Kerri was absolutely phenomenal in every way! I called her midway through my planning after we broke from our old planner (about five months before our Vegas wedding) and the difference was night and day. Kerri was always available, meticulous about answering every question I emailed, our vendors loved her, and most importantly, she was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is fun, down-to-earth, and really got excited about planning my wedding with me.Sent on 11/02/2012
She also understood that I wanted to be a VERY hands-on bride (which probably makes a wedding planner's life more difficult!) and she balanced everything perfectly - letting me take charge and meet with vendors and design everything just the way I wanted it, while pulling all of the pieces together behind the scenes. I felt completely worry-free during the wedding weekend because I knew I was in good hands.
She and her team helped assemble gift bags, personally delivered many of them (we had 300 guests!), did our table numbers, got our guests on and off of our shuttles, coordinated our rental deliveries. (These examples are a tiny fraction of everything she did, like run our entire wedding!) She coordinated our fireworks to burst at the perfect time during our first dance, and when the fire marshal said we couldn't have sparklers on our cake, she spent 20 minutes trying to convince him otherwise. Chris even caught our cake when it toppled over at some point during the reception! They literally went above and beyond for us.
I cannot recommend Kerri more highly. She and Chris are GREAT people - my now husband and I LOVED them. Anyone would be in wonderful hands with, and more importantly, you will know you are in wonderful hands so that you can relax and enjoy your wedding!

In LOVE with Kerri. She is organized, friendly, creative, and best of all, she follows through. Even if there was some tragic disaster at your wedding, you'd never know about it because she is so prepared and great with dealing with people. I went to my own wedding rehearsal, and then a friends and really noticed how much I appreciated her. At mine, the Pastor was there waiting (she had arranged for it), my family was there, she had already talked to the venue director, they knew the plan, we just ran through it twice and we were out of there in no time. My friends.. it was a disaster. People were fighting with the bride about what "we did at our wedding" or "what I've seen is this..." But there was none of that with Kerri. She always stood up for me in a really sweet way. The wedding was perfect; she handled complicated vendors. There were last minute crafts that needed to be made but I didn't have the energy to make them. I showed up to my wedding, and saw that she had made them herself (HOW SWEET is that!?) I was literally sad when my wedding was over because it meant I didn't get to meet with her anymore! GO WITH KERRI! She will ensure that your big day is everything YOU want it to be, and more.Sent on 10/09/2012
Kerri is a pleasure to work with. She is amazingly talented at coordinating a seamless event. I look forward to working her in the future.
The staff of Talega Golf Club and I had the pleasure of working with Kerri Hatter of Kerri Hatter Weddings & Events recently for a wedding of 200+ guests. The bride had an "significant" amount of details, setup, decor and activities of which Kerri gracefully and speedily left not the smallest of these unattended. From first contact through execution of the event Kerri is your advocate for all things wedding. Keri has an delightful quality about her while maintaining organization, creative edge and professionalism and making it all seem effortless. A professional coordinator like Kerri Hatter can help alleviate the inevitable stresses and frustrations of planning an event; Kerri has our trust and we wholeheartedly recommend her for planning your wedding or event. ~ Michael Voorhees, Director Catering Sales -Talega Golf Club, San Clemente, CA
