    There are no words to describe the elegant, magical wedding that Cheryl-Anne and her team orchestrated for our daughter and son-in-law this past weeke

    There are no words to describe the elegant, magical wedding that Cheryl-Anne and her team orchestrated for our daughter and son-in-law this past weekend in Chapel Hill. We live in Dallas and were overwhelmed about planning the wedding across the country in the midst of a pandemic. The creativity, professionalism, patience and guidance of Cheryl-Anne and her network of amazing vendors put us at ease and and let us relax and enjoy every minute of the process and their fairy tale weekend. The bride and groom left telling us it was the best day of their lives, and so many family members echoed their exact words. Absolutely every minute of the big day was carried out effortlessly and without a single hiccup. I can only imagine the hours of meticulous planning that went into every single detail. My husband and I give her the highest possible recommendation and promise you that you could not entrust your wedding to a more original, dynamic team and one of the nicest people you will ever meet.

    The best of the best!

    I don鈥檛 know how to adequately thank the Kast & Co team - not only did they make all of our wedding dreams comes true, they also did it with grace and kindness. They helped us plan a multi-event wedding weekend with tons of moving pieces. Cheryl-Anne is supportive and kind, and guides you in the right direction because she comes with such an immense amount of knowledge and expertise. She did everything from coordinating all of our vendors (as we were planning this from out of town) to checking on us throughout our wedding day while bringing us water (and some cocktails!). She was hands down one of the best decisions we made for our wedding, and her team who supported us on our wedding day was just as amazing! Everyone told us that they were so impressed by how seamlessly the weekend flowed, and we all that all to Kast & Co. We are so appreciative of all of their hard work and cannot recommend them enough!

    Best wedding decision we made!

    Cheryl-Anne was hands down the easiest and best decision we made for our wedding. After my intro call with her, I immediately knew I found our planner. She's patient, calm, and took any stress I had of planning away. She's extremely organized throughout the planning process and takes the time to learn about you and your partner and listen to what is important for your big day, while also sharing unique and creative ideas that we didn't think of. Cheryl-Anne absolutely nailed our wedding vision - truly exceeded all expectations we had! We could not have been happier working with her and her team. We would not have been able to get through all the planning, details, logistics, timelines, or the wedding day without her! Her team is the best! Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality!
