    I Need 10 Stars to rate Kast Events

    As mother of the bride planning my first wedding ever in a city where none of us lived, I was intimidated and worried about my ability to pull it off. In my first phone call with Cheryl-Anne Kast, I knew I had found our Planner. In a word, she is amazing. Ch eryl-Anne, and everyone on her team, is SO organized, helpful, creative, responsive and calm under pressure. They worked really hard to get to know us and then to personalize the whole experience to our desires, with an unbelievable attention to detail and execution. And they made it fun for us every step of the way. As I reflect on all the various things I spent money on with my daughter's wedding, there is NO better investment we made than hiring Kast Events. And the icing on the cake is that Cheryl-Anne is also a floral designer so she did all of our flowers and decor, and guests have literally told me it was the prettiest wedding they've ever seen. That's because of Cheryl-Anne. She is THE BEST. I need 10 stars to rate Kast.....

    Epic Chapel Hill Wedding!!!

    Kast team was unbelievable. Every detail covered. Always professional. Pleasure to work with, from the first meeting right through to the last minute of wedding. Also, the flowers and arrangements were beautiful. The day itself ran without a hitch and without any surprises. And as parents of the bride, that is exactly what we needed. If we had another daughter, Cheryl-Anne and her team would be our first call.

    Above and Beyond!!!!!!!

    I worked directly with Cheryl-Anne and Justine at Kast Events and I cannot even begin to describe how amazing they are. I was planning from long distance and they made everything so incredibly. I was more laid back about making decisions which was probably for the best - I went with basically everything they suggested and my wedding day was a literal fairy tale come to life. I gave them some basic color schemes/ideas and it's like they took the picture right out of my mind and created something amazing. I never dreamed that the day would be so perfect and it is all thanks to Kast Events. They worked so incredibly hard so that I didn't have to.

    Cheryl-Anne also did my florals - I was speechless when I saw how beautiful they were and the guests could not stop talking about them.

    I cannot recommend Kast Events enough - whatever is is that you are looking for I promise you will not be disappointed!!!!
