    Worth Every Penny

    We hired Ashley a few months before our September wedding for both design and coordination. Ashley went above and beyond to help us find the perfect vendors during a difficult year. She also helped with almost all design components. Ashley worked with our florist to create such a beautiful vision. She was worth every.single.penny.

    Ashley also made wedding planning fun. Most of the process up until we began working with Ashley was overwhelming and completely outside our comfort zone. Our discussions and planning with Ashley made the process enjoyable.

    Ashley also made everything seamless on the day of. While a few things went wrong, she worked to make sure we didn't realize it (and we didn't!) The day was executed perfectly and it was a relief to be able to leave the venue that night knowing she was taking care of everything. We cannot recommend Ashley & Midwestern Bride enough.

    The best!!

    We had Ashley as our "month of" coordinator and if you ask me my biggest regret about our wedding, it would be that we didn't just hire Midwestern Bride to plan the entire thing from the beginning. If you are like me and get massively overwhelmed with all of the planning and coordination that comes with hosting an event… HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER! I felt like my life was just descending into chaos and then Ashley swooped in and lifted all of the weight off my shoulders in the last month - and so effortlessly! I have absolutely no idea what I would have done without her. She created a detailed wedding day schedule and coordinated all of the vendors using her years of experience rather than needing a ton of input from me (thank goodness because I was clueless about the timeline), but was always available to call or text if I had questions or changes. She also ran our rehearsal like a total boss and it was at that point I felt like I could breathe and just enjoy the weekend knowing everything would be okay. I am a person who constantly focuses on the worst case scenario so the fact that I could just relax and let go is saying a lot, but she was so comforting! If something went wrong, I definitely never heard about it. From our first interaction I trusted her fully and I'm sure the rest of her staff is just as amazing. Obviously all wedding vendors are important, but in hindsight I now realize that a coordinator or planner can be make or break. I have only incredible memories of my wedding day and I truly would not have enjoyed myself as much as I did without Ashley and Midwestern Bride. I can’t recommend them enough!

    Book Kanoe as your wedding coordinator!

    Kanoe was amazing as our "month of coordinator" and truly one of our biggest blessings looking back at our wedding. After a two and a half year engagement and an extra year postponement due to COVID, being able to off load the final month of wedding planning was such a gift. I am very Type A and organized, so I was a little nervous handing over the reins, but I knew after my first conversation with Kanoe that we were in great hands. She is extremely personable, detail oriented, down to earth, but at the same time very "no nonsense", essentially the perfect wedding planner. She does not push her opinions, but helps you make final decisions if you are having a hard time. She answered all my emails in an extremely timely manner and was even able to in the final week before our wedding secure our late night snack vendor that we were having trouble reaching for months. She was poised and in control our entire day and truly did not allow me to worry about anything, even if I tried! She kept in mind our hope to not spend too much time taking photos after dinner and came to get us for our first dances so our timeline did not get too thrown off. She also saved the day with a handful of safety pins when my dress broke with about an hour left in the night. I swear I had barely looked up after feeling it break and there she was already fixing the problem. We have gotten so many compliments about how beautiful our day was and I truly think Kanoe was a big part of that. She made our vision come to life. I would 100/10 recommend her to anyone.
