    100-Star Rating IF I COULD

    There is NO way we could have pulled off our wedding day without the help of Tessa and Fred+Kate Events.

    We booked them for the Day-Of Coordination Package and it was worth every cent.
    Tessa was great at prioritizing what needed to be done right away and what could wait. She was also great at reassuring me that we were ahead of schedule and we were fine. She was so responsive through text, call, or e-mail. We would schedule calls through her Calendly account, which I thought was great. Calls would initially occur every 2 months and as the wedding got closer, the calls became more frequent.

    We were planning our wedding all the way from New Jersey and in the 2 years of planning, we met with Tessa only twice for about an hour each.

    As the day got closer, Tessa slowly took over all communication with vendors. Her final timeline for our day started at 8AM, ended at 10PM, and was broken down to every 15 minutes. If that isn’t organization then I don’t know what is. It was the most thorough timeline I had every seen and I would frame it if I could because her organization was what made our wedding literally the most perfect day of our lives.

    The week before our wedding day, it rained every day. I had spoken with our reception venue and they suggested we modify our layout to have the dance floor moved under the tent instead of outside. Tessa worked with our rental company and was able to revise our layout that ended up being WAY better than the original plan.

    The day of our wedding, Tessa had team members come to both my hotel room and the groom’s hotel room to be with us to make sure that everything was running smoothly. Each staff member had a copy of the timeline and made sure that we were meeting everything on time. They made sure the florist, photo, and video were on time. Tessa and another staff member were at our reception venue making sure everything was set up on time, too.

    While I was getting ready, one of my dress straps was not fitting correctly and Jeannette actually sewed it on the spot so it fit! Jeannette and Sachi were great at making sure we were all ready that we actually had like 20 minutes to spare before we headed to the ceremony.

    At the ceremony, another staff member named Mark was so great because he saw that I was so nervous and he ran across the street to Starbucks and got us all cups of water. They had tissues on hand for me because they saw I was crying already!

    At the reception, Tessa and all the staff members were there and they were so kind and helpful and I couldn’t stop thanking them for everything they were doing. Jeannette and Sachi made sure that we were able to eat a little and drink some water in between pictures and being pulled every direction for things.

    Everyone involved with the wedding complimented us on how organized everything was and how we were all on the same page with the schedule. That is all thanks to Tessa.

    This review is SO long, but I cannot put into words how grateful we are for all of Tessa’s help. Thank you to Jeannette, Sachi, Seychelle, and Mark for all of your help with our special day.

    Fred & Kate Events did a terrific job coordinating our wedding! Even though their prices may seem high, take our word for it that hiring a good coordinator can be the difference between an unforgettable experience and a catastrophic disaster. Even though your aunty or best friend might be good at making sure people came to your sweet 16th birthday on time, doesn't mean they can coordinate your wedding. Don't take a chance, just hire the professionals like Fred & Kate. Besides, aunty and BFF want to enjoy your wedding, not be "obligated" to coordinate it. :)

    F&K staff was always available for help but know what you're entitled to under contract and try not to abuse this privilege! Even though they may seem pushy at times, it's what they do. As with any coordinator, they make sure everything goes according to planned! Be GLAD they are this way because if not, chances are that nobody will listen to a shy coordinator, politely and kindly asking if you could please kindly and politely take your seats, please. :)

    F&K staff was also kind enough to do things that weren't required or expected, to help make the experience after the wedding more pleasant and enjoyable! I'd highly recommend them and don't hesitate to spend for what you deserve. You won't regret it! (Let aunty and BFF enjoy!) Thanks F&K!!

    Fred+Kate Events is the wedding coordination company that The Wedding Cafe Hawaii created. They are fairly new to the wedding scene, as they are only a few years old. We initially booked them because we had heard rave reviews about their lead coordinator, Kelly Sugano. Over time though, Kelly became pregnant. She had her child, decided to leave Fred+Kate Events, and chose to restart her own company, A Perfect Day. This left us with a hard decision to make. We had to choose who we wanted our wedding coordinator to be. Since our wedding was less than six months away, we decided to stay with Fred+Kate Events since they had been helping us up until that point.

    We had the pleasure of working with Kristen and Tessa. Both are VERY nice, professional, and easy to work with! I must have sent Kristen 200+ emails. She ALWAYS responded to them in a timely manner, and never thought any of my questions were silly, even though some of them were. She also created our timeline and ran our meetings prior to the wedding. We were gracious that Tessa and Kristen took the time out of their days to meet with us and attend any appointments possible, i.e. wedding ceremony rehearsal.

    On our wedding day, Kristen arrived to our hotel room and got straight to work. She, Tessa, and their team worked their magic to make sure that we followed our timeline/schedule for the day. They helped our wedding run smoothly and made sure that we had everything that we needed. They even helped us set up our wedding reception site!

    After our wedding, many of our guests complemented us by saying how great and creative it was. It was also good because Kristen helped me to follow up with one of our vendors after the wedding was over. She didn't have to but she was more than happy to help out! That was VERY nice of her!

    Fred+Kate did a GREAT job on our wedding. I am VERY happy with their services. They helped my husband and I to have the wedding of our dreams! They are THE BEST!

    Working with Fred + Kate Events is the absolute best and they are a my short list of go-to event planners. If Curtis and I know that our client has picked Fred + Kate, we high five each other. Because we know it's going to be a piece of cake for us as a vendor, and a dream come true for the wedding couple. I have worked with them on many events and each one is executed with a high level of attention to detail, a huge amount of heart, and true love for their clients. The last event we worked on, Tessa had actually traveled out of state to pick up an item for the cake table that she knew would make a particular design pop for her client. THAT, my friends, is true love and dedication to the art of event planning AND to making sure their client has an amazing experience.

  • Dynamic Sounds Hawaii Wedding DJs
