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.

Kelly is AMAZING and booking her services was the best decision we made throughout this planning process. We booked her package that included her jumping in 6 weeks out from our big day (she gave advice through texts and emails way before that, too). I always thought I’d only need a “day of” planner but honestly that doesn’t exist in a way that would have made our day go the way I dreamed of....which is exactly what Kelly made happen. She understood my vision of what I wanted, and what I wanted our guests to experience. Every single detail was perfectly planned. She and her team were absolutely amazing the day of from set up, to coordinating the (also incredible) team of vendors, to seamlessly transitioning 160 guests from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception to send off, making sure my husband I ate, and had a drink all night. Our guests continually have given compliments to how beautiful the wedding was, how much fun they had, and how wonderful Kelly and her team was. If you were thinking about not having a planner...please reconsider..you never know how much ACTUALLY goes in to planning every minute of your big day and Kelly does the BEST job at making sure you, your parents, and bridal party don’t have to do a thing but have fun and soak up every minute of the day that already goes by way too quickly. We will be recommending Kelly’s services to everyone! She’s the best in the biz and we couldn’t be more grateful for all of her hard work and dedication to making our day absolutely perfect!!

Would highly, highly recommend Kelly and her fabulous team!
From our first meeting to the very end of our wedding night, Kelly and her amazing team went above and beyond to make our day an absolute dream. Not only did she bring our wedding day vision to life, but she handled details and vendor relationships to ensure that no T was left uncrossed and no minute was left unplanned. Kelly offered recommendations for local vendors, expertise from previous weddings, and attention to detail that included memorizing all of our contracts and staying on our wedding night until everything was perfectly back in its proper place. Perhaps most impressively, she handled vendor relationships, which was no easy task. We had a backyard wedding with about 225 people, a wonderful but high-needs 9-person band, and a restaurant as our caterer. We certainly threw a lot of challenges at Kelly, and she handled them with professionalism to ultimately perfect every detail of our day. As icing on the cake, Kelly got to know me, my fiancé, and my entire family to really understand what was important to us, so on our wedding day, I completely trusted her to execute our vision and handle anything that came up while I enjoyed a blissful, stress-free day. To Kelly, Anna, and the rest of your fabulous team, you have our eternal gratitude for all that you did (things that I am aware of and fires that you put out without me ever knowing) to make our day perfect!
