Our wedding in the park was perfect in every way

From the moment we contacted Kristen, we knew we'd chosen the right planner for our elopement in New Orleans. We never waited more than a couple of hours for her to respond -- and believe me when I say I emailed, texted, and called a LOT! She found the perfect venue (and obtained permits), made meal reservations before and after the ceremony, and created the best itinerary. She even included our pups in the ceremony! The only thing we had to do was get the license when we arrived. It was magical! Thank you to the whole team: Kimberly Quinlivin for the breathtaking wildflowers bouquet, Marcia at Ibay Photography for the beautiful photos throughout the park (I tear up every time I look at them), Joy Fragola who spent so much time helping with the ceremony and our vows, Terry Monk for the stunning and delicious cake (she recreated the wildflowers from my bouquet!), and to Julia Akers, the very lovely and talented violinist for completing the perfection of that day. I can't thank Kristen and PK Events enough. So yeah! We loved everything and highly recommend them.

Professional and Personable

Kristen and the team is amazing. We were blown away by their service the day of our event. They just consistently went above and beyond. Kristen is super knowledgeable, organized, and professional. She was very helpful in planning a complicated post-reception transportation to take my party of 50 to get beignets. When I started stressing ahead of the ceremony, she was on top of making things run smoothly and reassuring me. We selected a package with Canal St. Inn and had such a lovely day. It was nice to not have to select any vendors. Everyone Kristen works with is amazing, we were so happy with the florals, music, officiant, and cake. Definitely check PK events out when you're considering a destination or elopement!

everything we wanted!

If you are planning a wedding, Kristen and her entire team are the answer to all your wedding planning prayers! We planned our wedding day at the Royal Sonesta in New Orleans. Every detail was tended to, every box was checked and every picture was perfect. When we had questions or requests, Kristen was always quick and efficient with responding. Our second line was a core memory for not only us, but all of our guests as well and has been bragged about by all our family and friends. My floral dreams came true with Florals by Kimberly, and we had a delicious cake made by Terry at Chez RuRene Bakery. Our wonderful wedding weekend was made possible with the help Kristen and her team and I would suggest her services to anyone and everyone! You want Kristen and her team to help you plan your wedding!
