Best Day of Coordinator ever!

Kristi is AMAZING, and to say she was worth investing in is an understatement! She was so helpful in coordinating my wedding and was very responsive. I did a lot of planning on my own and I can’t tell you how much she was able to take off of my plate. She did a fantastic job and I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Great Wedding Planner!

Kristi did a great job with Day of Coordination. Our day went smoothly because of her efforts, and she definitely helped us with a few last minute issues, as well as special help up front finding our venue (which was proving difficult for our guest count and budget). However, in hindsight, we wish we'd hired Kristi for full coordination, as the planning up to that point took a toll on our sanity.

Quick book now!

We cannot say enough about our Wedding Planner, Kristi Varela from Keaton Events. We knew Kristi from her involvement with fundraising luncheons and Galas with our local American Heart Association Chapter of Northwest Houston. She is a professional in every sense of the word.
The day after the engagement, we booked Kristi. She listened with an open mind to our evolving ideas, encouraged our creativity and helped us incorporate our diverse family traditions into a meaningful day to remember. Her knowledge of vendors and venues was spot on, and when we insisted on exploring for ourselves, she patiently arranged our appointments.
We chose the wedding date based on the completion date of our venue Iron Manor, deliberately avoiding Flu season, Hurricane season and holidays. We excitedly monitored the construction progress online from drawn plans to open house and were thrilled with the design and acoustics.
Calm, confident and ready for our big day just four days before our wedding -Covid-19 restrictions went into effect. Concerned, we contacted Kristi about rescheduling everything. She miraculously managed to get us a new date and move all our vendors in just one day! When our original family friend “day of” coordinator (not recommended by Kristi) backed out three weeks before our new date, Kristi provided us with resources available to provide that service. After all, we wanted Kristi to be our guest at the reception and not be working- but join us in celebrating!
A huge shout out also to all our vendors-we loved working with you…Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
