The Best There Is!

After the very first call with KKWE, we instantly knew they were the planners we wanted to work with. What made KKWE stand out was how genuine, passionate, honest, and creative they were. They got to know us and we can safely say we gained some amazing friends in this process. It's been a month since our wedding and we can't stop reliving the day over and over again. It was truly the most perfect wedding and it's all thanks to KKWE and the amazing vendor team they put together to bring our vision to life.

On the day of the wedding they executed flawlessly. We never felt a moment of stress and were able to truly enjoy the day with the people we love the most. So many people have reached out to us saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We would do it again in a heartbeat and not change a single thing! We recommend KKWE to anyone and everyone - they are the best in class!

Simply the BEST

My wedding wouldn’t be what it was, if it wasn’t for Kelly and her entire team. I started planning my dream wedding over a year ago and was lucky enough to have the extremely talented, professional, organized, kindest person next to me walking me though every detail necessary to make our wedding weekend what we’ve always dreamed of. If there is one thing you need when planning a wedding, it’s a coordinator. Kelly recommended the most amazing vendors, helped organize every detail and kept us on track for our big day. It was truly amazing watching it all come together and we will forever be thankful for her!

The BEST there is!

Kelly is not only an AMAZING wedding planner, but she is an AMAZING person! As a bride, I cannot say enough great things about Kelly – she is kind, talented, hardworking, passionate, professional, fun, and organized – as is the team behind her! I don’t know if there is enough space in this review for all the fabulous things to say about Kelly Karli Weddings and Events.

I hired Kelly as my full-service wedding planner about 14 months out from my July 2022 wedding in Beaver Creek, Colorado.

From our initial phone calls, Kelly and I just clicked. All our conversations left me feeling more and more excited and extremely confident in Kelly’s abilities to execute on my vision for my wedding day. Throughout the planning process, I looked forward to touching base with Kelly – she made the daunting task of wedding planning manageable and fun. Kelly was ALWAYS extremely responsive and attentive – via both email and phone. Although she was planning multiple weddings at once, I always felt special and cared for as a client. I consider Kelly as not only my wedding planner, but my cheerleader too, and she is now part of our family!

One of my favorite aspects of working with Kelly, was not only how she and I “clicked”, but how well Kelly got along with my fiancé and my mom and dad, who were hosting my wedding. My parents, from New York, loved working with Kelly too! Kelly was patient with all their questions and requests and never hesitated to jump on the phone with them. We all adore Kelly and cannot thank her enough for planning what we refer to as “the BEST day!”

During planning, I think Kelly quickly realized that, like her, I am also Type-A. She did a great job at “handling” certain things and including me on others. She was able to quickly read my personality and working style and adapted to it.

About six months out, we started on event design. Kelly is amazing at this! She worked with me to understand my vision for the day, my style, and personality. She then created a mood board for me and sourced all rentals and décor, including draping and lighting, to make my vision a reality. I wanted a hanging floral installation above our dancefloor – Kelly worked with the florist and the engineer from the venue to make this happen (it was gorgeous!).

As with all weddings, during the planning process, some things did not go according to plan. Kelly quickly jumped into action and resolved any issues. Kelly does not shy away from adversity and is a true professional, understanding how to remedy any situation that may come up. She is true to her clients and from my experience, always acts with their best interests in mind.

On wedding day, we had 200 guests attend from all over the country at the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek, Colorado. Kelly and her team immediately got to work behind the scenes. Their coordination seemed effortless! My family and I were able to completely enjoy the day and be present with Kelly and her team running the show. We trusted them 100% and everything was a dream!

Brides – my advice: sometimes it can be tough to find wedding planners with both expertise in design and execution of wedding day logistics. You also want someone that you enjoy speaking with and who will get you excited for your wedding day. Kelly is the total package! She is absolutely the BEST! Do yourself a favor and work with her!
