    So Happy We Chose LyKai!

    We weren't planning to hire a wedding coordinator, but our hotel venue required it for the wedding day. We followed up with a few recommendations, and LyKai won our hearts from the first Zoom call. She really took the time to get to know us and make sure we were comfortable with her. And we were almost immediately. LyKai was beyond a Day of Coordinator. The communication began months before just here and there to keep us on track. She was there for the venue walk-thru, to answer any questions we had. She's super responsive. And maybe most importantly, LyKai had a super calming effect on my high anxiety level. She is just a sweetheart who will take care of making sure your special day goes just as you imagined. Thank you, LyKai!!

    Deciding to hire LyKai as our coordinator was the best decision of the wedding

    LyKai was such an incredible blessing to our entire wedding process. First of all, her professionalism and proactive nature made the planning, execution, and task list so manageable and Fun! She replied to inquiries immediately and always took as much time as needed to assist us with ideas or to completely answer any question we had. LyKai on wedding day cleaned, organized, packed and assembled everything. She did so almost without being seen. Somehow through all the excitement and energy, she managed decorations, the processional, last second changes, handling the music, and coordination with all our vendors (and much more) all in the background on wedding day. Incredible. I just had a ball and could enjoy every minute because I knew how “on it” this woman was. The most important thing for me was that by the end of the process I felt so close to her and was inspired by her gentle calm demeanor when so much was going on. My wedding went better than I even imagined. All the details and the love was so far beyond my expectation and I attribute a lot of that to LyKai. My best friend also used LyKai and we are both project managers. We are detail oriented and then you meet LyKai and it is a whole new level! My new husband and I are so blessed to have crossed paths with her and to have had her help through our 20 month engagement. If you are on the fence about hiring a coordinator, think no further, this was the best decision of the wedding.
