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.Sent on 06/12/2019
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.Sent on 09/02/2019

Keli is a genius!
More than anyone or anything else, Keli made my wedding day what it was. And it was amazing, from start to finish!Sent on 01/16/2019
She recommended all of my vendors (all of whom did an incredible job) and made sure they were available for my big day. She gave me inspiration for a table honoring my mother who had passed away. Heck, she even found me a newer, better, and still reasonably priced venue when we determined the one I'd chosen wouldn't work!
The day of, we were dismayed to see there was an 80% chance of rain, and indeed it did rain. We'd planned for an outdoor ceremony, and I was pretty upset that that wouldn't be possible... that is, until I saw the set-up Keli had arranged inside. It was gorgeous, it incorporated the circular floral arch we'd decided on, and the guests were shielded from the cold and rain. As I walked down the aisle, I couldn't imagine a more perfect setting.
The final performance element of my wedding was the first dance, and although my husband and I had practiced it, we had not done so with my dress on. I was saddened to find that the bustle I had gotten make the dress too long for me to walk backwards--which was one of the basic steps of our dance! Keli stepped in like the pro she is and created a shorter french bustle with pins in a matter of minutes--and the dance went off (set to the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows") without a hitch.
Several guests told me that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to, and I chalk this up to Keli's meticulous planning. The day of the wedding I received a schedule from Keli that had every photo set and event planned to the minute. On your wedding day, the last thing you want to stress about is not getting everything done on time, or making your guests wait too long while you take pictures. Keli really put my mind at ease, and as a consequence, I had an amazing time at my own wedding with almost no stress--which was totally invaluable.
I am so thankful that I had Keli to plan my wedding. I could not have picked anyone better!
