Worth every penny!
There is no way we could have pulled off our wedding without RK Wedding and Events. We liked that they aren’t just a wedding planning company. Rachael knows and has worked with a wide variety of vendors and event locations across the DFW metroplex. She was extremely organized, spreading out our decisions over the 7 months we had to plan our wedding. She price hunted for us, helped us with the design of our DIY invitations, and made sure everything was perfect on our day.Sent on 04/21/2019

I started writing this review several times to try and describe our experience with Rachael. We worked with her for over a year to plan our daughter's wedding from beginning to end. Truly, there are no words to describe how much we respect her and her team at RK Wedding & Events. The whole planning process with Rachael ran smoothly and efficiently, but it was the day of that was the true testament to her and her teams abilities. With very difficult weather conditions, and I mean 30 mph winds, sideways rain, flooding and so on, Rachael and her team still managed to pull off our completely custom wedding to absolute perfection! All of it with smiles on their faces! Their hard work paid off and we had a beyond beautiful, magical, and unforgettable wedding. We could not have done it without them!Sent on 04/16/2019

Wedding Planner of the highest Professionalism
Outstanding professionalism, Outstanding organization, Outstanding personal touch. There is no way we could have done the job that RK Wedding and Events did for us. Every detail was completed without missing a beat. From the smallest detail to the biggest was flawlessly done. Rachael, from the time we hired her, worked relentlessly in seeing that everything was done to completion and made the wedding an event that was stated by all that came... (130 family and friends) as simply the most elegant wedding they had been to for many years. All I can say is if you intended to use a Wedding Planner. Choosing RK Wedding and Events, will be a decision well worth your money and the return will be the event of your dreams come true!Sent on 11/24/2018
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.
