Kari and Marci were so responsive and helped us put a small backyard wedding together in an unbelievable short notice. The wedding was just beautiful and I’m still in awe of their talents in decorating, coordinating and visions for creating such a beautiful experience. I was actually able to sit and mingle with family and friends during my nieces wedding since they had everything under control. I appreciate them both so much, plus they are a delight to work with!Sent on 12/20/2020

Skilled, detailed and fun event planners!
Marci and Kari made sure everything was absolutely magical for us. They paid great attention to details and made sure there were no loose ends so we could enjoy ourselves! They came prepared for anything -- even bringing a lint roller for my husband's suit and a safety pin for my fur stole. We felt confident in Marci and Kari's ability to handle any situation and make sure the day went smoothly. We couldn't recommend Coastal Events highly enough!Sent on 11/17/2019

Wonderful , loved these ladies
These girls were the glue that held my wedding day together. I cannot thank them enough for all the little things they did that kept me from losing my mind on my wedding day! They kept the ceremony flowing and the party going, brought us food and drink of choice, made sure every detail was in place and kept us feeling like everything was under control. Everyone recommended a day of coordinator and I am passing the advice on to all future brides. As the bride, you just don’t have time to take care of all the details on the day of and I really wanted my family and friends to enjoy the party and not worry about the details either. Marci and Kari will take a load of your mind and allow you to enjoy your day. I 100% recommend them!Sent on 10/31/2018
