Hire Kristin-You Won't Regret It
Kristin helped me through selecting flowers, communicating with rentals, and met me multiple times to listen to vent and help me with the details. If there was a ten star option, I'd be using it! Kristin helped me stay in my budget, and helped out on the day of to create a schedule, communicate with all the vendors, and helped me be stress-free on my wedding day.Sent on 08/05/2019

Kristin and her team were nothing but exceptional during our planning process, and we could not have pulled it off without her!
Kristin so clearly loves what she does. She is wonderfully welcoming and unflinchingly enthusiastic. We loved getting to know her during the planning process, and working with her gave us so much confidence and peace of mind! We were originally planning for September 2019, but due to unexpected complications our original date and venue fell through and we moved the wedding up to April- which meant planning almost everything in less than four months! We were nervous about getting everything done so quickly, especially because we live seven hours away, but Kristin reassured us that she’d done short-notice weddings before and could make it happen.
She 100% delivered. Right away, she suggested an alternative venue that fit our vision and guest list. From there, she did an amazing job of breaking down the planning process into manageable chunks. We had weekly calls and weekly “assignments”, which allowed us to focus on making and executing decisions rather than getting bogged down in research or overwhelmed trying to keep track of tasks. She sent us customized lists of recommended vendors, giving us confidence that we’d be working with great people who fit our needs and our budget. She coordinated everything- vendor meetings and plans, the day-of timeline, venue and ceremony layouts, vendor meals, setup and cleanup, transportation, and probably a bunch of other stuff we never even heard about! We also asked her to make some of our decor decisions and she did an amazing job of making everything beautiful while still feeling personal. She's got a knack for how to set up a beautiful space that makes for beautiful photos- she set up our dessert and escort card tables, made floral arrangements for our cocktail tables, set up a layout of our invitations and rings for photos, and added many other beautiful touches. She was respectful of our budget and had tons of great ideas to help us get the most out of our money. She also had access to a large inventory of decor and serving supplies that saved us money on rentals, and she was even able to negotiate some discounts. All of these things saved us a substantial chunk of change, which made her fee an even better value.
On the day of the wedding, it was amazing to be able to just relax, follow the timeline, and trust her to make game-time decisions. She was on top of everything. She also came with a great team- her assistant Kelsey was easy-going and an excellent extra set of hands, and she had a couple of assistants help set up the dining room before the florist arrived. We were so organized that we ended up with a large chunk of extra time after the first look and before the ceremony, which we used to take a bunch of extra, fun photos and relax and spend time together. Our ceremony even started exactly on time, we had time to enjoy cocktail hour, we ate our whole dinner, and if anything went remotely wrong, we haven’t heard a word about it. We had a ton of compliments from guests on how smoothly the day went and how seamless the transitions were. All of her hard work paid off, and my husband and I, along with our families, wedding party, and guests, truly got to just enjoy the ride.
Hiring Kristin Ridge Events was 100% the best planning decision we made, and we could not recommend them more highly!

Awesome Planning for My Daughter's Wedding
Kristin was especially valuable in helping plan my daughter's wedding in the Charlottesville, Virginia area since neither of us lives nearby. She was professional, knowledgeable, savvy in negotiations, generous with her time and ideas and did it all with a charming and welcoming personality. She had weekly phone meetings with the couple, and gave them manageable tasks to complete and decisions to make that helped keep planning from becoming overwhelming. She listened to their preferences and advised and incorporated their wishes into all planning. She worked very well with the other vendors and made our wedding weekend go very smoothly. We highly recommend Kristin Ridge!Sent on 06/08/2019
