    Who needs an expensive wedding planner when you book with Kelly and team?!!!

    Was thinking about spending a lot of money for a private wedding planner for my daughter’s Aug 8th wedding, but we booked with Kelly and I have to say… Don’t spend another dime… Kelly and team were so efficient, accommodating, caring, professional and super over the top intuitive… It’s like they read minds and made any adjustments needed just by being observant! They made an extremely normally stressful (but happy) day turn into a wedding to remember! I’ve never been to a more coordinated wedding! Thank you Kelly and Team for everything! We will spread the word of your excellence!! COVID SHMOVID! YOU pulled it off without a hitch! Xoxo Angela

    Perfect Outdoor Venue

    Kelly is very quick to respond and helped with the day tremendously. She has done this for a while so she knows what is needed and she really does "fill in where you forget" She was super flexible with us and went beyond her way to make sure things were they way we wanted them.

    The place is gorgeous and the staff was great. This is such a hidden gem in Galveston.

    Beautiful outdoor venue, with a gem of an owner/ coordinator

    Kelly is an absolute gem. She was flexible with our requests, helped us plan the reception and floor plan, and was always cheerful and welcoming. When we forgot to order food for the kids, she sent an employee to gracefully take care of the problem before anyone noticed. She unobtrusively checked on me and my fiancé several times throughout the night, and even remembered to pack us extra food when we left, knowing that the bride and groom rarely get to eat at their own wedding reception. She is experienced, thoughtful, and extremely willing to work with you. She is able to read how much you need her involvement and contact. Our reception was absolutely beautiful, and working with Kelly made it that much more enjoyable and lower stress.

    The venue itself was lovely. We had a ton of guests and this venue was more affordable than most others, and also ended up being the romantic, twinkly-lighted outdoor venue I'd dreamt of. Kelly took care of hiring a bounce house for the many kids at our reception, booking port-a-jons since we had a lot of guests and the venue has one bathroom, and she set up a firepit as well so our guests could have s'mores. She can provide linens if need be, which is great when you have a DIY reception. I cannot recommend her highly enough. When you are planning your own reception, you need a go-to person who can make executive decisions and who can also execute your vision. You need someone who is kind but gets the job done. Kelly is all of those things.
