Planning during a Pandemic
We spent over a year planning our wedding, as we got closer we hired Karen to help keep us organized as we got closer to the wedding. Then the Pandemic of COVID19 hit, Karen provided us with constant updates and recommendations as we continued to plan...After a few weeks we realized we wouldn't be able to keep our date and had to postpone. Karen unfortunately wasn't available on our new date - but that didn't stop her from making sure our wedding would be a success. She helped us find an available wedding planner, sent the new planner all of the information she had for our wedding, and negotiated a discounted rate...Then she still provided us with some additional items we were "borrowing" from her for our wedding...If you have the opportunity to use Celebrated Events/Karen as your wedding planner DO IT!Sent on 04/23/2020

Karen was great. Everything was flawless and our guests even commented about that. She was very responsive and super easy to coordinate with. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for a coordinator.Sent on 01/13/2020

Above and beyond!
We hired Celebrated Events to hang sting lighting at our recent wedding at the Linganore Winery. The lighting added a special touch to an already beautiful venue. Just three days before the wedding we contacted Celebrated Events (Karen Farrow) seeking potential vendors for outdoor space heaters (as it was predicted to be cold the day of our event – we ended up not needing them which was great); in talking with Karen about our upcoming event we also realized that we could really use some help in setting up some décor inside the venue and Karen graciously offered to help without hesitation. With so much to do when you arrive at the venue with prep and pictures, we can’t imagine how we would have been able to get our special décor set up in the reception hall without Karen’s help – she was truly a life-saver! We gave her a list of the items and where they should be set up and she took care of everything. When we entered the hall before the reception started everything was set up so beautifully – picture perfect! We honestly don’t know what we would have done or how we would have found the time to do it. Karen was great to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone planning an event! Thank you Karen for offering to help - you made our day so much more relaxing and everything looked absolutely beautiful!Sent on 11/20/2019
Karen Farrow from Celebrated event is not only a great person, but one of the hardest working coordinators out there. If you are looking for a full time wedding coordinator or day of coordinator, rest assured that Karen will make sure that every detail is taken care of and your wedding day will go smoothly and everything will look beautiful. I highly recommend Karen to anyone that is getting married or planning an event. You will be happy you did!
Karen is not only professional but easy to work with. We love it when we see that our brides are working with her!
Karen at Celebrated Events is an absolutely delightful lady to work with! She truly cares about her clients and will do whatever it takes to ensure their day is magical. She is a woman of integrity and grace at all times, and I hope to be working with her for years to come!
