    The best!!

    Marci and Kari were the best day of coordinators we could have asked for! They are warm, fun, and extremely organized. They made sure to go over every little detail with us before the day so it would run smoothly and we wouldn't have to stress about anything. While the day mostly went perfectly, there were a couple of unavoidable issues like the tent heater not working. However, we didn't even know that had happened until the day after- they really prioritized making our day stress free. It was truly the best day of our lives, thanks in large part to Marci and Kari! Highly, highly recommend!

    Thank you for the kind words Hakeem! We’re so happy you and Emma had the wedding of your dreams. Surrounded by friends and family and stress free. Thanks again for inviting us to be part of everything. Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!

    First let me say thank you to Kari & Marci for being my peace through the entire process of planning my reception. I would not trade the experience for anything. To find relatable and genuine people like Kari & Marci is hard to find and I am forever grateful to have found them. I’m sending any and everyone to them who needs wedding planning!!!!! I love you ladies truly, you’ll always have a place in my heart! ❤️🤪 peace & love - the Austin’s

    The best team you can hire

    After planning every detail of our wedding, we were fully confident in turning it over to Coastal Events. They made it all come to life so beautifully, and we could not have asked for a better day.
    They took complete control over our vendor contracts in the weeks before, created a flawless schedule, and helped us navigate some truly tricky weather.
    They have incredible value for the service they provide and make you feel totally at ease. I can't recommend them enough

    Coastal Events's reply:

    Thank you for all the kind words Liz! We truly enjoyed every minute of planning and wedding day. Your family really knows how to party and watching all the love in the air makes our job so much fun! Cheers to a lifetime of fun and happiness. Xoxo Marci & Kari
