Planning a wedding is a journey. Our first step in that journey is to explore how you envision the final destination. We want to get to know you! We are not just planners; we are advocates for you throughout the entire process. Often, when we first meet our couples, there is a recurring theme of excitement and stress. Harnessing that excitement and eliminating that stress is our first priority. We have perfected the art of making the planning process simple, however our design acumen is anything but…

From traditional to modern, from sophisticated to relaxed, we are known for our flawless execution and the stress-free experience that we provide our clients. From the initial consultation throughout the entire journey, our couples are enthusiastic but relaxed.

Our brides from Southwest Florida and beyond, rave about our exceptional attention to detail and how we provide an extraordinary experience from concept through completion. From a beautifully designed reception at a private residence on Captiva Island to the smallest detail of a perfectly tied bow on the back of Chiavari chair at a Sanibel venue, we cherish every detail. Whether you envision an intimate beach wedding in Naples or an extravagant affair on Marco Island, KC Weddings & Events has the experience you expect to bring your wedding day dreams to life.

We take pride in the many relationships we’ve cultivated with the top wedding professionals in Southwest Florida. This ensures that you will have access to the best vendors and venues perfectly suited to your budget and vision. The difference between an ordinary wedding and an extraordinary wedding is the KC Weddings & Events experience.

A “Yes!”, a kiss, then wedded bliss!™

There are no words to describe Kara, except she is amazing. I’d never thought of a wedding planner but the moment we spoke I knew she was the right person to help me. Me, and now my husband were just planning on going to the courthouse to get married, we were expecting our baby boy in the summer and didn’t think we would have time to create a small wedding in a short time window. We thought of certain dates having meaning and 2/12 was the number we wanted. It landed on a Monday and the date was approaching fast we thought it would be impossible to plan something in such a short amount of time but Kara made the impossible possible. The best decision we ever made was hiring her. She took over everything and it was so easy for us. She took our vision and made it a reality. We had a great small wedding on the beach with our immediate family. It was perfect. We are so grateful for her, for all she did and how quickly she made this wedding happen.

Stress free wedding day thanks to Kara and team!

We hired KC Weddings & Events about three months before our wedding date, and from our first call, we knew we would be in GREAT hands with Kara. The day wouldn't have run as smoothly without Kara's knowledge, professionalism, positive attitude, and impeccable attention to detail. Our experience with Kara and her associate planner, Ashley, was a 10/10. Kara helped plan our wedding in Naples from Canada, giving us expert advice and numerous fabulous vendor recommendations for linens, steaming services, glassware, photo booths, etc. Kara's associate planner, Ashley, also designed and printed all of our signage for our wedding, which turned out to be more beautiful than imagined. Kara truly cares about bringing the bride and groom's vision to life, and she was just as excited about our decisions as we were, making her such a pleasure to work with. We truly wanted to feel like guests at our wedding, and she handled the day's logistics, planning, and overall schedule like a seasoned professional. We wouldn't have been able to enjoy the day as much as we did without her. KC Weddings & Events exceeded our expectations. We're so lucky to have met Kara, and we can't thank her enough for helping us plan the wedding of our dreams. Thank you so much!

Fantastic! Best in SWFL

Thank you to Kara and Ashley, both made our day goes smooth, so we could relax and enjoy it.
KC planning understood how I vision my day. We gave them a few inspirational pictures and you recreated exactly how I would have done it myself.
I didn't have to worry about anything at all, everything was perfect, all the little details, the timeline, etc.
I think KC Wedding planning was the perfect planning company for our needs, we were looking for a day of coordination, and you both exceed our expectations.
I totally recommend them; they will go above and beyond to make your day special.
A big thank you to KC Wedding & Events.

I had the privilege of witnessing the spectacular wedding reception arranged by Kara Cardinal. From the flowers that she arranged herself to the wish balloons sent into the air by well wishers, she truly did an amazing job of making the couples dreams come true. I would highly recommend Kara.
