    Is there a 10 star option?!

    Where do I even begin? The ladies of Kickstand Events made all of our wedding dreams come true! It has been just about a month since our wedding and every time I think back to that day, it is hard to think of a way if could have been more perfect!! You always hear stories of brides stressing about wedding planning and complaining about how horrible it is, but I can honestly say I had the complete opposite experience. AND we have Sally, and Courtney to thank for that. They immediately understood our vision, helped us keep our priorities straight, and made the process enjoyable. Sally is a logistical genius and Courtney has an impeccable eye for design! Additionally all the teammates they have helping them behind the scenes and on wedding day are equally as amazing. I would highly recommend using Kickstand Events for your wedding or party planning needs!!

    Have your dream event and spare yourself the stress

    Kickstand events recently helped me pull off a bridal shower with @ 40 guests in the middle of Covid restrictions. Our original venue could not accommodate us so short notice we changed the location to a backyard. Courtney immediately got to work. She went on Google Maps, downloaded a picture of the back yard and had a layout plan and an inspiration board to me in a day. She completely transformed the backyard into a beautiful venue for our shower. She handled everything, taking all the work and the stress off of me. I had previously booked a florist otherwise I would have had Kickstand do the floral arrangements. Courtney and an assistant were there early to make sure everything was in place and beautiful. They also stayed for the entire shower so I could enjoy myself (not typically the case for a party host)
    Courtney was a lifesaver. I could not have pulled it off without her-it definitely would not have been as beautiful! I will definitely call Kickstand Events to plan another event and would highly recommend them!

    Could not have had a better team!

    Sally and Courtney were wonderful from the first day I met them until today! I am so thankful my daughter chose them as her planner and designer. We relied on them for everything and they came through with flying colors. Everyone at the wedding, including the venue team, said they were fabulous. It was a fairytale wedding and they made it happen!!!!!
