Worth every penny

I was hesitant to hire someone for wedding management/day of coordination, because I wasn't sure it would be worth the money. Hiring Kelly Kennedy's team for wedding management turned out to be the best thing I did for my wedding day. Kelly was contracted for another event on our wedding day, but left us in the very capable hands of Stephany and her assistant for the day, Vanessa. Stephany was on top of everything, from coordinating with vendors, to wedding set up, and managing guests and family. Having her there to make the day as relaxing for us and our families was a huge part of why the day was so perfect. We also cannot say enough good things about Vanessa, who seemed to anticipate our every need that day. All in all, if anyone were to ask about whether we would hire them again, our answer every time would be an emphatic YES!

Seamless, easy, and excellent work through the whole process

Kelly and her team were great to work with. We were planning a wedding in Sarasota from out of town and they made the whole thing seamless and easy. They take the time to sit with you and really understand your vision and help you work within your means. I never felt pressured into something I didn't want. Would highly recommend to anyone planning a wedding in the future.
