Keith Willard Events - Events Executed Exceptionally. It is in my nature to nurture. My brides mean everything to us. I find that our relationship extends to years after the wedding. Look at my social media and my reviews on the Knot. You will see that my clients are not just clients, they become my family.
What you get when you bring my company into your planning: you will get honest feedback, an advocate in all things wedding, a psychologist, a logistics expert, and endless ways to be creative with design and budget savings!
My clients also enjoy immediate and constant access to our staff including an almost round the clock texting (we must sleep at some point!)
When Keith Willard Events is involved in your wedding you can literally take a breath with knowledge that everything will be taken care of.
About me and the experience that I bring to planning your wedding (In a nutshell)

Lead Planner for an international event planning company - I can figure out how to create amazing events long distance, finding the perfect vendors in any city or country.

Keith Willard - a rare find!
I can recommend with complete confidence Keith and his associates who've been an excellent design and décor resource for not one, but two of our annual gala fundraisers. Keith's complete knowledge of the event industry, coupled with years of experience and attention to detail were key to our success, and I have nothing but praise for his creativity and willingness to go the extra mile to dazzle our guests!Sent on 06/29/2020

Essential and vital to making the vision we had of our wedding day a success. But most importantly, the reason we were able to enjoy every second.
We cannot thank Keith and his team enough for all they did to make the best day of our lives possible. Not only for what he did on the day of, but for all he did for us prior to the day as well. We hired him as our day of coordinator, but he went above and beyond; met with us several times weeks prior without hesitation, as well as communicated with us via, email, text and phone many times leading up to the day, putting us both at ease with his advice, and quick responses to any questions or requests we had. He has many connections with different vendors and has worked with so many venues that the staff at many of the hotels already know him and what to expect. Keith kept all the stresses of the day at bay, handled the unexpected surprises with ease, and in the end, things turned out much better than we imagined. Thank you, Keith and Brooke, for the peace of mind that allowed my wife and I to enjoy every moment of our wedding day.Sent on 06/25/2020

South Florida's Best
Keith was absolutely amazing with my wedding! Planning it was a breeze and all of his vendors were perfect and within budget. The day of came with some venue challenges and weather challenges but he handled everything without me even knowing what was going on! The day ended up being absolutely amazing and I was completely stress free.Sent on 06/30/2020
Keith Willard Events LLC's reply:I love your picture because you can't tell that there was a storm that was literally about to hit! But we wanted that outdoor wedding! You guys are awesome - thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding day.
