Our best decision made in planning our wedding...hiring Keli at Monarch Weddings as our Wedding Coordinator!

Still riding our wave of bliss after having a wedding that exceeded all expectations on June 1st, my husband and I can honestly say that hiring Keli Christenson at Monarch Weddings as our Wedding Coordinator was the best decision of all and truly the smartest use of money in our wedding budget. I truly cannot imagine going through the planning process without her, nor the thought of what the end result may have been without having Keli’s direction, advice, suggestions and basic stress level management throughout the months leading up to our big day. A consummate professional paying attention to every detail, Keli and her team brought our vision to life with flawless execution. There were so many details and questions to be addressed, many that I had/would never even thought of but luckily didn’t need to worry about because our experienced, masterful coordinator handled it all. Keli was always on top of things and also several steps ahead.

Some of the reasons why we loved working with Monarch Weddings…

- Communication throughout process was perfect, timely responses always and excellent follow through.
- Represented us as a couple in a professional, friendly and respectful manner with other vendors and venue coordinators (“a pleasure to work with” was mentioned by all).
- Always had our best interest and vision in mind, never felt as if Keli was pushing own agenda. Frequently offered suggestions that would help us to stay within budget or ideas where we would get “most bang for our buck”.
- Added client benefits resulting from Keli’s strong professional relationships within the industry.

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. Alena, my designated Bridal Assistant was outstanding, taking care of anything I needed. The confidence that we had in Keli and her team allowed us the ability to truly enjoy our entire wedding day and have the BEST time at our reception as it should be!

My husband and I wish we knew more people getting married soon simply for the opportunity to refer Monarch Weddings! We will happily and without reservation, sing our praises of Keli and her team to any couple planning a wedding, confident that they will receive the same outstanding service and experience.

She knows her stuff.

Keli was such an asset for our destination wedding in Coronado, CA. She really "got" my vision and style and nailed it all in the details and vendors she recommended. She listens and delivers! Made the day of joyous and fun, handled everything professionally and I didn't worry about a thing. Loved her bridal assistant and how she made the whole day run seamlessly. We felt incredibly special and lucky to have her as our coordinator.

She’s a genius!

Kelli Christenson is a magician. Our granddaughter hired her for their wedding. Due to circumstances, we needed to make 3 changes before finding the perfect venue ( which she found for us). Kelli was right there with us all the way, assuring us we would work it out and it would be perfect and indeed it was, in spite of many challenges.

On the day of the wedding, rain was forecast for 90% at the hour of the wedding, which was planned for outside. My granddaughter was very disappointed and near tears, believing her day was going to be ruined. Kelli to the rescue. By the time we all got to the venue for pictures, she had the staff move 19 tables that already been set up for the dinner, had set up 180 chairs, the florist had brought the “arch” inside and set it up inside in a beautiful position right in front of full windows overlooking San Diego Bay, and she even went out of her way to contact one of her colleagues to bring a runner for the bride. Everybody was blown away by how beautiful everything was on such short notice and they didn’t have any idea she was responsible. She was always behind the scene making sure everything was workkngEverything went perfectly and all had a great time.

Thanks, Kelli, you are an amazing genius.
