The people at Elegant Beginnings are GREAT! They helped me plan my wedding in little time in the exact venue that I wanted....the beach! They even helped to fight the seaweed issue that had come in the exact morning we were getting married. They helped from the very first minute until after the ceremony was over. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone getting married and especially to those that dont have tons of money but would like it to look like they do ;)

A dream come true!

Working with Kim was a joy. She went above and beyond to make sure my vision and dream wedding took place. She made it her ultimate goal to make this a stress free ,fun and once in a lifetime experience. She made herself available when I needed her to be without complaints. She made sure all my vendors knew exactly what was happening and when it was happening. The decorations were extraordinary and her eye for detail was exquisite. Kim and her team is a must have for your wedding!!

Hiring Kim and her team was the best decision I made. I highly recommend Kim and her team for Elegant Beginnings month of coordinating package and their decorating package. Their services made my wedding much more enjoyable and definitely stress free.
My wedding reception decor was perfect. Beautiful designs with style and picture perfect. Elegant Beginnings is one of the few coordination/planning services that offer in house decorating. You can’t go wrong with Kim and her team.
