A Key Ingredient to a Successful Wedding

Kelley Cannon Events were amazing to work with from my initial phone call to the final dance. And it was great to turn all the details over to them. The wedding day was spectacular and it was great to be able to enjoy it knowing they had everything under control. I loved how they worked together with all the vendors to make all the preparations seamless.

BEST wedding planner

We had the pleasure of working with Kelley for 2 years because we postponed our wedding, and honestly we felt so sad when our wedding was over, to not have her in our lives on the regular anymore. Kelley takes the very daunting task of wedding planning and makes it so seamless and easy. She covered EVERY detail and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. Our wedding was perfect and that was all due to Kelley's hard work and dedication to making sure we got everything we wanted.

Kelley made it all happen...even during a pandemic!

Kelley and her team were amazing to work with from start to finish. The level of time and attention she put into making sure our day was exactly what we wanted was extraordinary--she went above and beyond in every way. We hired Kelley for the "wedding coordination" package for an April wedding; Kelley and her associate Jess began working with us in January and met with us in February to go through our wedding weekend itinerary, which was extremely thorough and took all the guess work out of the day (i.e. what time did hair and makeup need to start, when did family need to show up for photos, how much time did we need for speeches, etc).

When our wedding was disrupted because of the pandemic, Kelley helped us coordinate with our venue and other vendors to put things on hold, and she stayed in touch with us after our original wedding date came and went. We made the decision to go ahead with our wedding plans in a scaled down, socially-distant way, and wanted to move quickly. Kelley helped us pull off our second wedding date in about a month--we could not have done it without her. All weddings have the potential to hit snags, but this was especially true as we navigated the city's new regulations, nervous guests, and our own short timeline to pull this off. Kelley anticipated a lot of these issues, helped us think through options, and ultimately simplified the process for us. When she realized she and her associates had a conflict with the weekend we had chosen, she sub-contracted through another wedding planner - a competitor, no less - who stepped in seamlessly. Kelley remained in constant contact with us in the lead up to the wedding, handling all of the finals details and logistics that came up (i.e. we needed a cake stand, ceremony outline, arrival/departure schedules for the vendors, our hotel room at our venue), and making sure the other wedding planner had everything she needed for our day. On our wedding day, her work allowed us to focus on the important thing: getting married. We had an amazing day; not once did we have to think about the logistics of the day or getting people organized because Kelley and her team handled everything. We cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us, and we would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a professional, thorough, warm, and thoughtful experience with someone who clearly knows what she is doing. Thank you, Kelley!!
