Amazing Planning Team
Ktse is the best!
The few weeks leading up to the wedding I had a meeting with my DJ and he was very impressed with Melissa's wedding day timeline and floor plan she created. It made the DJ meeting so much easier as we planned out which songs to play at what time during the course of the wedding day. My photographer/videographer also told me on the wedding day how detailed and impressed they were with the timeline, which was very helpful for them to cover the shots they needed to.
On our wedding day, Melissa and her team came prepared and ready to go all with all their bright personalities. They set up all the things I had like signage, menu cards exactly the way we planned. You can tell they all love what they do! If there was an issue, Melissa was there to keep you calm. She and her team made my wedding the Best Day Ever! I literally felt like I was in a fairytale movie the entire day because of them. Thank you so much again Knot Too Shabby Events!!
Perfect Day! Magical!
We always had confidence that Melissa had everything under control. She and her team have excellent experience in managing all types of projects. In addition, Melissa has excellent relationships with the various vendors - this helps on so many levels.
Melissa kept us updated all the time, communicating often and accurately. Melissa always brought solutions to any issues that popped up. All created great confidence!
We literally couldn't imagine planning an event (s) like the one we had without a competent, personable, experienced and hard working planner like Melissa (and her team). The whole couple of days ran so smoothly - her and her team's professional service removed nearly all stress!
