If you鈥檙e wondering if she鈥檚 worth it: she is

Over a year ago we were searching through vendors. We saw Denise and her amazing ratings and wondered if she was really worth it, if she could actually be that good.

After having completed our wedding and worked with Denise for over a year, the answer is an absolute YES!

Denise is a pro. She has connections, she鈥檚 friendly, she鈥檚 experienced, and she is honest. She is also very accessible. We emailed her regularly throughout the year leading up to the wedding and she would respond anywhere from an hour to 1-2 days. We met with her in person many times, to tour venues, or to just chat. She made time for us and helped us in ways we would not have even thought of.

When we started planning the wedding, the question of if a wedding planner is necessary came up at first. Our wedding ended up having 140 people. I know for a fact it would have been a disaster if we did not have Denise to help us find vendors, save money where we could, think through worst case scenarios, and see through the logistics of the big day. She is worth twice what she asks. She is not the cheapest planner you will find here, but if budget is a concern she will help you to save more than enough to make up that difference. Her services are absolutely necessary.

We will miss working with Denise. But it鈥檚 nice to know so many couples will be in her good hands. Over the year we worked with her she probably worked dozens of other weddings with other couples, but it always felt like we were her only one because she gave us that level of attention. You can鈥檛 go wrong with her.

Destination Wedding

Denise did a great job coordinating things with various vendors, and was very helpful in helping us narrow down venues for our wedding and rehearsal dinner. Her relationships with certain vendors are evident, and it鈥檚 great to be able to leverage that. She鈥檚 also very good at cost control.

Denise is an angel

We found Denise late in our wedding planning and she was exactly who we needed. With insider and local knowledge for smaller local vendors, she was able to support and take our wedding to the next level - from backyard wedding to first class venue. The little touches she suggested made a huge difference and instantly elevated our wedding. She was kind and calm and also ran a tight ship! She thought of everything and as a fellow event and production professional it was such a gift to ask someone else 'Ok where do I go next?' and not worry about a thing. She made things extra special with some of her own Waterford crystal champagne flutes for my husband and I as well as an Irish shilling for my shoe, and some Irish linen for my bouquet. She is a gem of a person and a planner and we HIGHLY recommend her.

Denise Kramer is wonderful...professional, skilled at managing details, caring and personable. I've had the pleasure of working with Denise for 15 + years, and highly recommend her as a knowledgeable, experienced and dedicated wedding planner. She is a lovely person whom you can trust to work with you, wholeheartedly, in creating your beautiful and special day. And if you want a mid-week small or elopement wedding, check out Denise Kramer Weddings' Elopement Package. It's incredible...gorgeous wine country settings, photography, classical music, etc. at a reasonable price. (Of course, I am a bit biased, being on her Elopement Package team.) Rev.
