    I would like to take a moment to give a huge THANK YOU to Kelley and Once Upon A Wedding! My wedding day was so less stressful knowing that she was there to handle the details. She’s very friendly and easy to communicate with which works wonders for pre-wedding nerves! She also seemed to magically have everything that I even thought I may have needed in her emergency kit! It makes things so much easier when you have a helper and don’t have to worry about meeting/directing caterers and other vendors on your special day. I would definitely recommend getting a coordinator like Kelley for your wedding!

    You NEED to book Once Upon a Wedding. They took away all my stress the week leading up to the wedding, which was a LOT of stress. Kelley is very flexible and responsive. She gives the perfect amount of suggestions and listens to all of your desires. I would’ve gone full blown crazy without them the day of the wedding. They coordinated all of the moving parts, and we had a big wedding party so there were many parts. I couldn’t imagine a better day-of (and night before) planner. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING MY DAY PERFECT!

    If you're looking for a wedding planner and stumbled upon Once Upon A Wedding, look no further! I interviewed many wedding planners for day-of wedding help, and it just felt so right immediately after I spoke with Ashley and Kelley. Their price was very reasonable and they are just such pleasant people! They're like the trusty friends you can rely on for all the mishaps that may happen at your wedding!!

    We spoke back and forth pretty frequently about 1-2 months before my wedding. They were always super prompt in answering my emails and offered some awesome tips. We went on a walk-through for our venue and had a one-on-one meeting one month before the wedding, and just from this encounter, it was evident that they saw my vision.

    On the day of, they were SO UNBELIEVABLY HELPFUL! Some mishaps occurred with the decorations that I had purchased online and with the center pieces. I didn't have to worry one bit because they handled everything so well!! They made my wedding day wayyyyyy better than I could have ever envisioned it to be! They always thought ahead and was 150% prepared at all times! I am so so so grateful for them! They are hands down the BEST investment for our wedding day. I am still glowing with happiness because of their amazingness!

    Ashley + Kelley from Once Upon a Wedding were amazing to work with! The wedding day went flawlessly and they anticipated what needed to be done to make the day perfect. Wedding days are long and their energy and fun personalities never wavered from the beginning of the day to the balloon send off. The reception room at East Bank Club looked amazing with all the beautiful touches they created. I can't wait to work with them again!
