About

If you're looking for:

1. Someone to help you create a unique & beautiful, sophisticated & fun wedding day or a full wedding weekend that your guests will enjoy start to finish

2. A planning experience that is organized and not full of stress and has you guessing on every decision to be made

3. Someone who knows who to call, where to look and how best to do it

Email or call us. It's what we do and we do it really well after a couple hundred or so weddings under our belts.

If you aren't sure if it is day-of help you need or if you'd prefer an advocate and more guidance with the design or all of the planning- we can help you figure that part out too. We fully believe that every wedding is unique and the planning and approach should be unique.

What to ask planners and coordinators you are considering:

  1. How much access do I have to you?
  2. How long will you be at my events?
  3. Are you recommended by my venue, vendors and creative partners?
  4. How many years have you been operating as this business?
  5. Have you ever missed a wedding? What are your plans in place in case of an emergency?
  6. Do you have a thoroughly seasoned staff?
  7. What do the majority of your clients hire you for?
  8. How many weddings are you doing in the weeks surrounding my wedding date?

She'll plan the party that you never want to see end!

Kelly McWilliams and her team are elite. I am still in absolute awe at the wedding weekend they created! Every one my dreams and my partners' needs came to life, and I never wanted the weekend (or the party) to end.

First and foremost, Kelly made me feel like more than just a client from the very moment we got on the phone. She made me comfortable like you'd feel just speaking with a good friend, and I knew she was truly listening to everything I was looking for in our planner and wedding. We had come into the process with her after already obtaining a venue and a few vendors, having realized we were in over our heads trying to plan this, especially with being at a distance early on. She took over as a full-service planner immediately.

Kelly and Catie helped us connect with top vendors in the area and arrange contracts swiftly, and with her mark of approval and good working history, we were able to be confident in our selections. We were getting the best team together! Calls with Kelly were extremely organized, and the "homework" she had me do allowed us to come into each of those conversations with all the information we needed to make important decisions with ease and no regrets or waffling. She was always able to answer questions, and helped us when our original venue pushed us around or wouldn't respond.

When Hurricane Ian hit, the Fort Myers/Sanibel/Captiva area was devastated. We watched from afar, awaiting anxiously, as we realized our original venue in Captiva was no longer in any condition to host our January wedding. Despite having no electricity or water and with a practically non-existent cell signal, Kelly wasted no time in reaching out to reassure us that she was ON A MISSION to make sure our wedding would still happen, despite the tragedy. Within days, she had found us a new venue that was PERFECT in the Sanibel Harbour Marriott, and she was able to arrange the contracts and notify all our vendors about the new location while we still maintained our original date! In that moment, there was no question, Kelly was invaluable. She was worth her weight in platinum, and then some.

She attended a second venue tour and menu tasting with us, now that we had to redo a lot of decision-making. She reassured me that all the new changes to the carefully crafted wedding plan would come together beautifully. At this point, she had also hired Nicholas, whose involvement in our wedding planning was just an incredible addition. The pair ensured every detail was managed, and his logistical execution paired with Kelly's design allowed for a gorgeous wedding landscape. They handled every little snag that came up along the way, and were always a text or call away no matter what. They organized everything down to the minute, and no stone was left unturned.

When wedding weekend came, they were on site at almost all times. They executed a gorgeous rehearsal dinner (with a surprise theme just to excite us) and a beautiful welcome reception that our guests adored. Kelly and Nicholas ensured I could focus on enjoying the party and my guests, and any time I needed anything, they were there to take care of it, while still taking care of starting to prepare the ballroom for the reception the next night.

On wedding day, things were stunning and seamless. The vendors were all on time and everything was set up without me having to be involved. The team she recommended executed beautifully. The design Kelly had shown me came to life in a more stunning manner than I could have ever imagined. The ceremony went perfectly, with every detail covered. Our guests loved every minute of it. Dinner and the reception were unbelievable - if only that night could last forever! We loved it, and our guests are probably now ruined for all other weddings. We didn't have to lift a finger the whole weekend, and my husband and I are so blessed to have work with Kelly and her team. We are going to absolutely miss working with them!

There's no question about it, hire Kelly to plan, design, and coordinate your wedding. You will never regret it.

Detailed oriented, easy to work with!

Kelly McWilliams is very organized and extremely easy to work with! As a vendor, we are constantly working with multiple vendors and Kelly has always been a dream. She sends out emails with every question answered, every detail thought through and extra notes for us so that we can create a beautiful event together.

With everything said above, she is also extremely talented when it comes to design. All of her weddings portray the couples style perfectly. She is known for paying attention to detail and making sure the guests are having the best time ever.

Unlike every wedding planner, Kelly makes the vendors feel welcome. We never feel like we can't interrupt her with questions, she is always prepared and willing to help.

Kelly is a big fan of entertainment and is always coming up with new ideas for our team. She recently booked us out for a small dinner show and it was fantastic! The guests felt like they were in a broadway dream - and she was the one to create this idea!

We've worked over 200+ weddings and have seen it all. You will NOT regret hiring Kelly, she is *amazing* at what she does and it truly one of the best in the industry.

Incredible, patient and flexible wedding planner

Kelly has been through the ups and downs of planning a wedding pre and post-covid and despite multiple date changes and location change, she was there through it all! She helped us plan our DREAM wedding in the Carribean without knowing the venue or the island, and used her expertise to make everything we had planned perfect. She's patient, flexible and understood really well what we wanted.
