They did the work, so we could enjoy the wedding!!
After RK handled our older daughter's wedding so well in 2019, they were our first call for our younger daughter's wedding in October 2020. Deb and her team's help beforehand with advice and coordinating, especially during Covid, took pressure off of me as mother of the bride. On the wedding day, we were able to relax and have fun, knowing that RK had everything running smoothly. They made sure that vendors were handling their roles and made last minute adjustments to the cake and flowers when needed. Everything ran perfectly on schedule, and they were very attentive and accommodating to guests with special needs. There are probably a dozen issues they resolved without even telling us, but we saw several times that they went out of their way to fix situations swiftly with great diplomacy and professionalism. We are grateful!Sent on 10/29/2020

We had no idea how much we needed a wedding planner until Dana joined us in planning our wedding.Sent on 03/26/2021
Dana kept us on schedule, gave reminders, and provided suggestions to make our day special. It was just enough communication to where we did not feel overwhelmed or forgotten.
She were amazing throughout the process. The day of the wedding, if anything went wrong we had no idea. Our families loved the entire team (Dana, Monique, and Karen). You all went above and beyond.
If we have any events or know anyone getting married we will definitely recommend RK Weddings & Events.

We were blessed to work with Monique Provance. She is not only an amazing planner, she is such an amazing human. We had many obstacles during the planning process but Monique stuck with us, she was graceful and professional, and treated us like family. She planned everything with little help from us, we were able to just show up and trust it was all perfect. And perfect it was! Dana Cliff was there the night of the wedding and she was just as lovely as Monique. Everybody needs a Monique in their life!Sent on 01/26/2021
Rachael and Karen have the experience that you won't find in any other wedding planner. From their production and corporate meeting experience to large scale events like Dallas Diner en Blanc, they have the knowledge to handle any event. They treat each client and vendor as friend and, in some cases, family. Each event is individualized for their clients to the smallest detail. They will fight for their clients' to ensure that their event is perfect in every way.
