Thank you to Sarah for all of her help over the last 9 months. Such a beautiful, fun and memorable weekend wouldn't have possible without her. I am most grateful for her easy, friendly and positive demeanor and solutions-oriented approach. She was able to solve every snag quickly and without fuss. If she was flustered or stressed, I didn't see it. She beautifully managed my most critical comments without reaction or disappointment, just with a solution. She is truly a class act, a talented woman and a pleasure to work with. The team at KWE is great, and Sarah is a real super-star, a stand out, a consummate professional. Our most sincere thanks go out to the entire KWE team.

We worked with Kate for our wedding on 10/14/17 at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament and The Firehouse restaurant. We initially, weren’t going to hire a wedding planner, but it was the best decision we ever made!
We chose the “Essential Collection” with an added “Budget Services” meeting.

What we appreciated most about working with KWE:
-Very professional, knowledgeable, efficient, patient, and ORGANIZED. Kate paid close attention to all the little details between both of our venues, coordinated with our vendors, and created a thorough timeline of events (which together we listed what we wanted, and she kept us on schedule so that every box was checked by the end of the night!)

-KWE, along with the magical team at the Firehouse & our florist, did an amazing job setting up our venue! I was able to drop off some personal items with Kate and a few boxes full of decor at the venue. I didn’t really provide instructions on what I wanted, but I trusted them with their ideas. Ummm...best decision ever. It was perfect!!

-She was patient and warm with all of our guests. She and her assistant had smiles on their faces the entire time!

- We are sure there were plenty of fires Kate had to put out on the day of the wedding, but we (and our families) didn’t have to worry about a thing. My favorite part was forgetting about my garter! Kate and her assistant were quick to fix that and had a garter for me just in time for the toss!!!

Because of KWE, we were able to have the wedding of our dreams. This truly was the best day ever, and we feel that it was in large part due to KWE being behind it. I would recommend her to any of my friends in a heartbeat. Kate, thank you so much!!!!

The best decision you can make for your wedding is to hire KWE! Initially we weren’t sure if we needed planners because we made a lot of decisions and bookings on our own but it soon became way too much to handle, AND you never know what can happen. KWE literally saved us - they got us through 2 venues cancelling, one only 48 hours ahead of our big day. It would have been a nightmare to deal with those issues on our own and there is absolutely no way we could have re-planned the entire event with only 48 hours to go. Sarah was our main planner and she is an absolute star. She took care of LITERALLY EVERYTHING to re-plan our entire event in only 48 hours so we could focus on hosting and enjoying the many guests who arrived ahead of time. At the end of the night we couldn’t believe how amazing everything turned out! As we saw our last guests off we asked her what needed to be done- she just smiled, told us she’d packed our chauffeured car with plenty of food and beverages and that all we needed to do was head back to the hotel and have more fun! YOU NEED KWE. YOU NEED SARAH. SERIOUSLY JUST BOOK THEM NOW. Then pat yourself on the back for being smart enough to know that your time and energy are better spent with your family and friends instead of trying to put on an entirely new event with 48 hours notice. We are forever grateful to Sarah and Kate for dealing with everything so we could enjoy the special time with our friends and family.
