    Amazing experience - start to finish!

    Sam and her team made our big day such a dream! Everything flowed so smoothly and on time - which was very important to us! I cannot stress how crucial their services were. Thanks to Sam taking care of all the details, I was able to sit back and enjoy every minute of my wedding day. 10/10!!

    Thank You Kennedy and EVL Events!

    Kennedy Rosario from EVL Events was absolutely amazing! My now-wife, Erin, and I originally didn't expect to hire a wedding planner/coordinator. After a few weeks Erin quickly realized it would be crazy not to have one. Getting set up with Kennedy was the best possible thing that could have happened. She made sure we could enjoy the process of planning by providing a great reference list of to-dos, recommended deadlines, and checking in with us periodically. These deadlines enabled us to relax and not feel as though we were "too late!", or falling behind during the planning process. The day of the wedding Kennedy was equally, or possibly even more valuable/awesome. She facilitated the day as smoothly as one could imagine, and with great attention to the details most important to us. We literally had the best day of our lives and Kennedy had a huge part to do with making it happen. Thank you Kennedy!

    Great Decision

    Kennedy and the EVL team were terrific to work with from start to finish. We hired Kennedy during the middle of our wedding prep and it was the best decision we made. She thought of all of the little details that we didn鈥檛 think about and reassured us that we were in great shape given all the work that we did before hiring her. That in itself was great to know! We hired Kennedy and EVL to make sure that we didn鈥檛 have to think about anything during the days/weeks leading up to the wedding and the wedding itself. We just wanted to focus on each other, family, friends, and enjoying the moment. That鈥檚 exactly what happened! It was especially helpful since we live in Boston but our wedding was in Buffalo. We can鈥檛 thank Kennedy and the EVL team enough!
