Where do I even begin!? I honestly could go on and on about how PERFECT Kristeen is and describe every little detail from our year of planning together because that is what she does - ensure that every little detail is just right and exactly how you want it. After interviewing over a dozen Wedding Planners - we knew almost instantly that she was the one! Choosing her as our full time wedding planner was honestly the BEST decision we could have EVER made!! She went above and beyond and turned our vision and imagination in to reality. It was BETTER than we could have ever dreamed of. Our Wedding Day was PURE PERFECTION and that is ALL because of Kristeen. There was no way we could have pulled off such a SPECTACULAR event without her skills, expertise, professionalism and creative mind. Did I mention that she is also SUPER organized and responsive?? Because she is!! My husband and I are VERY picky people and VERY particular and she was sooooo patient and accomodating. We truly trusted her with everything - rarely would we let someone make so many decisions for us and yet, time and time again we said “You choose, Kristeen!” Working with her was such a joy and she has been missed in our daily lives! You simply cannot go wrong with Kristeen and her team - they are the best! Don’t hesitate, hire her NOW!Sent on 04/16/2018

YOU MUST HIRE KRISTEEN! She is punctual, detail oriented and has a wonderfully frank and calm personality. She will tell you if something honestly won't work, but is always ready with other options. She was encouraging of my vision and was great at providing ideas and support when I couldn't put thoughts into words. She keeps a folder with all e-mails and ideas that you have mentioned and quickly forgot about amongst all the chaos of planning your wedding. She helped me stay on track and was working so much magic behind the scenes that whenever I checked in on her about something, she was always 2 steps ahead of me. Kristeen is worth every penny. We got married October 2nd at the Bel Air Bay Club and I miss calling and e-mailing her!Sent on 11/21/2016

Kristeen MADE our big day. We were able to put our complete trust in her and really enjoy our wedding. I couldn't recommend her enough!Sent on 11/14/2016
Kristeen is a master planner and all around outstanding person to work with! She is so creative, professional and organized. I have worked with her a couple times at The Ebell of Los Angeles and I can't wait to work with her again! I would highly recommend Kristeen to anyone looking for a wedding planner!
Many times, couples seem to try and cut the coordinator out of the budget and throw these responsibilities on the DJ, but they are only making it more difficult for their events to be as precise and coordinated as it can possibly be. I've worked with Kristeen on numerous events as the DJ and she was always great about being on top of things and making sure that I can focus on keeping the party entertained and enjoying themselves. Kristeen is very experienced, easy to work with, and will make sure you have the wedding that you and your guests will always remember.
We've had the honor of photographing a few perfectly planned and designed weddings by Kristeen LaBrot. She is a wonderful leader and makes the entire team of vendors feel like family. Her designs are unique and magazine worthy. She is sweet but assertive and gets the just done. Some of our favorite jobs of the past year were working together with Kristeen and we can't wait until the next one!
