Wedding Planner Perfection
Words that immediatly come to mind: Wow. Perfect. Exceptional. Experienced (and so much more). My Husband and I interfered about 6 wedding planners and we selected Kelly to be our wedding planner about a year before our wedding and used the 'Full Service' package. Kelly was very very easy to work with, very responsive, very detailed and thorough. We had several in person meetings prior to the wedding and countless emails. I'm an indecisive perfectionist who didn't have a concrete vision for the wedding. I had a budget, which Kelly always budget checked me and I knew a few things I liked & didn't like so Kelly helped us fill in the massive holes by asking questions and getting to know us. She created a wonderful vision board & timeline that was executed to make the MOST PERFECT day. I cried...a lot just when I did a walk through. I can't think of one thing that I didn't think was perfect. Everything was beyond what I had envisioned and it's because Kelly & her team went above and beyond before the wedding and the day of. I would recommend Kelly today, tomorrow and forever to anyone and everyone.Sent on 02/13/2019

Recommend to everyone having a wedding
Kelly was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. She kept us on track for all of the decisions and deadlines we needed to make. She was a sounding board for all of our ideas to make our dream wedding come to reality within budget. She made sure everything on our wedding day was handled and we didn't need to worry about a thing. We did not live in the area where we were married and having her help us figure out vendors that matched our tastes was instrumental in making the planning process more enjoyable. I have recommended Kelly to everyone I know that is getting married and they have all hired her as well. We can't say enough good things about her.Sent on 05/28/2019

All the stars!
Having Kelly on our vendor team for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire process. We selected Kelly and her team to help us for the "month of" planning package and it was such a great choice. Kelly was responsive, organized, and flexible, which was an incredible help to pair with my busy work schedule. Our wedding ran so smoothly and I know it was because Kelly was there making sure it did. From coordinating vendor time drop offs, to picking up the decorations for the event the week of, to setting up the room of my dreams, to taking special care setting up our special cultural favors, she did it all. Everything that Kelly assisted with was well thought out and I knew from the beginning that I could trust her with the details. She was able to provide an incredible amount of peace of mind that I know would be hard to come by elsewhere. I'm so thankful that we decided to hire Kelly and would recommend Kelly Kennedy Weddings & Events to everyone! Thank you Kelly, we couldn't have done it without you!Sent on 06/01/2019
