    The BEST Coordinator

    I could not have pulled off my wedding without Kersti. She made the whole day possible and for me to just relax. She is one of the best decisions we made during planning!

    Kersti has a lot of heart and works hard

    Working with Kersti was great. I think we were her first full wedding planning, but she found every single one of our vendors, who were also generally fantastic and reasonably priced. She was always available and very responsive, and she didn't have a maximum amount of time she would spend with us before charging more. She also went to all of our vendor meetings and took notes.

    We got married in a non-venue (a friend's cabin in Graeagle), so it took a LOT of work to create a wedding venue out of nothing. She didn't shy away from it, and in fact came with us several times to the cabin even though it was about an hour outside of Reno to plan it. She also helped plan our rehearsal dinner, although she wasn't able to make it herself.

    Once we had to go on a surprise hike for our Sunday plans, since our friend had to leave, and she not only came with us but was extremely positive about it even though it probably took about 45 minutes.

    Kersti had wedding decorations in her possession that she let us borrow. She also helped us with DIY projects that we wouldn't have been able to finish on our own.

    Kersti did a great job on our wedding day. Our DJ was slightly problematic (the only vendor who was), but Kersti stayed on top of him to make sure things flowed smoothly. As far as I'm aware, there was only one major thing that went wrong during our wedding day, and that had to do with family members; it was completely outside of our control. I'm sure other things went wrong as well, but it never reached me.

    I also had trouble with the photographer after our wedding, but Kersti still stepped up to help me.

    My one wish is that Kersti was slightly more organized, but I think that will come with experience since again, we were her first full wedding planning. Thank you Kersti for everything!
