Kay Mae Design is a socially conscious and sustainable wedding and event planning service based in Portland, Maine.

You may be feeling overwhelmed by the Pinterest black hole you've dived down, the many opinions of family and friends, and managing a full-time life while attempting to plan a wedding. You've come to realize planning a wedding is a full-time job and furthermore, you're wondering who will take care of you on your special day? You want to know that you can relax and enjoy marrying your partner without worrying about who will make sure the best man isn't MIA when the DJ calls him for his toast, or who will spend the morning setting up the ceremony while you do your make up? Who's going to feed your fur baby at the hotel while you sip on champagne?

We're here to guide you and take care of you. Planning with us is a collaborative effort. We'll walk you through the process step by step while handling the logistics, answering your questions, and taking on the administrative aspect of the wedding planning. You'll enjoy all the fun parts like shopping for attire, parties, and tastings while we do the rest. Planning with us is an exceptional experience, not just a product or service. We curate an entire experience for you from "YES!" to "I DO!".

We believe in our three founding principles: sustainability, community, and charity. When you plan with us, we will facilitate a dreamy planning experience while ensuring your wedding weekend is as eco-friendly as possible, hiring locally to support small economies and we will make a donation to a charity of your choice.

Allow us the honor of working alongside you to create the most memorable planning experience and wedding weekend of your life, all while following our socially conscious values. As an added bonus, we're down to drink coffee (or wine) with you at anytime, anywhere. Call or email us today to set up your coffee (or wine!) date and chat more about the fun and easy wedding experience you desire.

More than just a Wedding Planner

Although this review is long overdue, it is filled with nothing but wonderful things about our experience with Kayce Mae. My husband, Bradley, and I got married in September (I am still wondering how it is already 2020). We had gotten engaged in September of 2018 and had done a lot of the planning ourselves, but we were at a bit of a standstill as everything felt unorganized and we could not tell if we had gotten a lot done or nothing done. We got married in Vermont, but live in Philadelphia, so did most of the planning from out of state which made it pretty tricky. It was mid summer and we were planning a trip to VT to get some things organized and we knew we needed to meet with a planner to help us get our thoughts straight. Prior to heading up to VT, Bradley reached out to Kayce and it was a miracle that she still had the date available. She immediately made time to connect with us and made it work to meet us at our venue just a week or so after we connected. Kayce came prepared to tackle every and any task we threw at her. We immediately had an amazing connection with her. She was just so genuine, kind, and immediately calmed all my nerves. It felt like a huge weight had been lifted off our shoulders. There were a few details we were still missing including florals, which was one of the biggest stressors for us and when we told Kayce, she just looked at us and said don’t worry I’ve got this. I explained our budget and sent over a few inspiration pictures and did not have to think about florals again, which in my book was perfect. I actually did not think about them again until the day before our wedding when they arrived and my mind was blown at just how gorgeous they were. The flowers were better than I could have ever imagined or picked for myself for that matter, Kayce got me just right! Kayce put together all of our center pieces and decor around the entire property, like I mentioned, everything was perfect. The details were endless and you could immediately tell the amount of love that she put into our reception. Another challenge that we threw at Kayce was changing our reception location just 2 months before the wedding. At our official first meet up we had met at our original location and talked about logistics and the layout, we thought we were set. Unfortunately, there were a few disagreements with the space and we decided that in order to have our perfect night we would change the reception location and booked another venue, site unseen. When we told this to Kayce we thought she would be mortified, she took the news as if this was just a small bump in the road and we were going to get over it quickly. We got to VT the week of our wedding and arrived at our new venue and it was beyond perfect. When Kayce arrived later in the week she was immediately able to envision exactly what we had in mind. She worked tirelessly all day Friday and all day Saturday to give us the most perfect day of our lives. To add another obstacle to her plate….it was my dream not to have a tent for our entire reception space and the weather was forecasted to be beautiful, but in true wedding fashion it rained on our day and Kayce had to think quick on her feet to save the night. She moved cocktail hour inside with almost 0 notice and then dried off all our tables, benches, cutlery, etc. with any towel she could get her hands on. And yet, we felt as if nothing had happened because she just took care of it. Kayce is what I would define as a Wedding Wizard, I am not even sure how she pulled off half of what she did and yet I think that is exactly how it is supposed to be on your wedding day. Kayce was beyond easy to work with and my only regret was not booking her earlier in the planning process so we could have had more time to work with her. Although, throughout the planning process Kayce became more than just a wedding planner to us, she became a friend that meant so much more. So, if you are looking for a planner or friend, book Kayce, and book her quick because I have no doubt that she is going to continue to flourish and become a hot commodity in the wedding planning world!

Norther Vermont Wedding

We married on our parent's property in Northern Vermont, with over 300 people attending. I am easily overwhelmed by details and coordination, so a wedding planner was a must for us. We hired Kayce Mae to execute everything from beginning to end, and we couldn't have made a better choice. I was able to enjoy every moment of being engaged to my husband, all of the creative fun and ideas, and she handled the execution in a way I never could. NOTHING phases this woman! She both scared me and made me laugh, she has a saying "If you don't expect at least one thing to go wrong you're not planning right." WHAT? Go wrong? Fear not, this woman has a plan B and C for all things. So when our ordained minister fell sick that weekend, she was on it with a nearby JOP ready to help. When my ideas proved to be too expensive, her creative energy took up the reigns and she gave stunning affordable options. Her sustainable practices cut back on our trash bill and impact. I personally have never thought of the many ways an event can affect the environment, and it was nice to know she was thinking about more than running a business, she was thinking about the world. We loved that she chooses to donate to a charity of your choice if you hire her, we chose the ASPCA. Overall, Kayce was the best friend you needed at the time you felt you needed her the most. We got to have all the fun and enjoy the serenity thanks to her hard work. Would definitely recommend!
