My husband and I were very happy with the service of Kate's the Key. After a phone interview with Kate and a check with her references, we decided to work with her. We met once with Kate herself at a local coffee shop, and then met a second time with Kate and her assistant at our wedding venue, for a walk through. Finally, on the day of our wedding, we had Kate and TWO assistants. (We were only supposed to have one assistant according to our contract, but they brought another one, which was awesome!)
Overall, we were very happy with how communicative and easy to work with the team was. It was a little funny how unfamiliar they were with Jewish weddings, but I guess they know a lot more about them now! They were great on our wedding day and helped us deal with a minor crisis on the day of (we forgot to have someone pick up our Costco cake, and they somehow took care of it). They also coordinated with our other vendors. Overall, we were very happy with them! Definitely recommend them!

Hiring Kate as my day of coordinator was the best decision ever! Kate and Elaine took care of everything and really took the stress off my shoulders. I would hire them again in a second. I am eternally grateful - my wedding day was everything I hoped it would be and more. I couldn't have pulled it all off without them.

Professional Network & Endorsements

Kate is a natural and master communicator! In our e-mail correspondence, she has been professional and a delight to chat with. I wish that all of the wedding coordinators I work with had the same ability to convey thoughts and ideas as efficiently through text. A real gem! <3
