    Look No Further!

    Kari and Marci were hands down the best coordinators ever! From the first phone call to our wedding send off they were by our side and had our backs! These two are so detailed and organized. The entire wedding flowed well because of them! They became our friends along the way and we will absolutely stay in touch with them! Look no further for the best wedding coordinators ever!!

    Coastal Events's reply:

    Lindsey, you and JR are the kind of couple a coordinator dreams of! Easy going, fun, and organized. We loved every minute with y’all and can’t wait to have more fun together! Cheers to a lifetime of love and happiness
