The Best Day of Coordinator! Highly Recommend!

My husband and I contemplated hiring a day-of-coordinator thinking we could do everything ourselves. We were definitely in over our heads and decided to hire Kristi. It was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Kristi made the whole day go so smoothly and promised us that our ceremony would start on time when other vendors told us it probably wouldn't. With Kristi's help our ceremony started on time and we were able to squeeze in everything we wanted for our wedding. Both of our families raved over how great of a job Kristi did and we couldn't have been more pleased. She even brought an emergency bridal kit (Kleenex, bobby pins, mints, tide stain pens and more) for all the girls who were getting ready to use as needed. Kristi also decorated my desert table and picked up my bridal party lunch before the wedding. Honestly, the list goes on and on of all the little details Kristi took care of at our wedding that we cannot thank her enough! She is highly skilled and knowledgeable in what she does, 10/10 would recommend Kristi!

Best Decision We Made!

Hiring Kristi for our day of coordination was the best decision we ever made! Kristi and her team were professional, so easy to communicate with, and went out of their way to cater to our busy schedule. Kristi provides so much more than just day of coordination! From the moment we hired her (just about 30 days before our wedding), she was helping relieve all our worries. We worked closely with Kristi and her assistant, Mikayla, who was so amazing. Everything we asked for, they said yes and made it happen. Mikayla was so nice and made me feel completely at ease on the big day. We also really appreciate that Kristi and Mikayla were so helpful and sensitive in incorporating our Hawaiian traditions. Thanks to Kristi and Mikayla, my husband and I got to enjoy our wedding, hang out with friends and family, and party the night away without a single worry. We cannot thank Kristi and Mikayla enough for making our wedding day absolutely perfect!!
