Everything we could have asked for and More!

Kindred Spirits was absolutely amazing at supporting and coordinating our wedding. Jess, who was the person we communicated with, always reached out to make sure everything was going according to plan. Days leading up to the wedding she communicated with each of our vendors to make sure they were all onboard with our timeline and set to go on the day of. On our wedding day Kindred Spirits went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we envisioned it to be. They helped our bridal parties transition, set up our ceremony and reception sites, flipped tables between dinner and the dancing to allow more space, and even helped our families with clean up afterward. We could not recommend having them as our wedding coordinators enough. Our day could not have been as great without them.

Jessica was so much fun to work with! Wedding planning went from stressful to actually being fun! She was able to make all of my visions come to life and made the decor at my wedding so much more beautiful than I could have imagined.

EC Matrimony EC Matrimony Wedding Officiants

I am the owner of EC Matrimony and had the honor of working with Once Upon A Happy Ending this summer. These ladies (and gentlemen) are amazing! I was so completely impressed with every detail that they planned out for their couple. I have officiated hundreds of weddings, and the wedding I worked with them on was one of the best. You will not be disappointed when you hire them. In my experience as an officiant, I have see. So many couples stressed out on the day of their wedding because they decided to handle everything on their own. Couples who have hired a wedding planner/coordinator are by far more comfortable, relaxed, and able to enjoy their big day more. Once Upon A Happy Ending can do that for you.


Very personable and enthusiatsic about what they do.
