Kristen and Evelyn made sure everything ran like clockwork for our wedding. Kristen was a delight to work with offering advice and insights along the way. The company's dedication to green practices and recycling was also a big draw for us. They provided helpful tidbits such as table runners and paper stands for table menus from their stock that saved us money and time. Kristen and Evelyn took some of our decorations and made sure they will be recycled as well. I'm so glad that we chose the Naturally Yours Events team for our big day.

Carlene from Naturally Yours Events was the Day-of-Coordinator for our daughter's wedding and she was awesome!! She was very available to the bride and groom and also to us for any questions whether about timeline, logistics, or anything else leading up to the wedding. The planning tools were great, covering every aspect of planning and coordination. She handled coordinating all of the vendors and made everything run smoothly from makeup and first look through setup, transportation, ceremony, crowd management, first dance, speeches, and all the way through to midnight vendor strikedown. We cringe to think of what we would have done without her. As it was, the wedding was perfect and magical, everyone - bride, groom, parents, were all thrilled!
