I cannot say enough how incredibly grateful we are to have had Karen, Abi and Rachael to help us in our wedding planning process. They gave us new ideas, helped us execute our own and exceeded our expectations for our big day. We would have had no idea what we were doing without their help. They really remember all the fine details that are easy to miss and help keep you on track. They were so open to questions at any hour and all three of the meetings we had with them were very detailed and helped us feel at ease in preparation for our big day. When I walked through the venue after they had set everything up right before our ceremony and reception, I was completely amazed at how everything looked. They brought our vision to life and made it even better than I could've imagined. I am so thankful to have had them as our wedding planners. You NEED these ladies for your wedding day! They are awesome!

Rachel and Karen did an awesome job on my wedding! They were both very easy to work with and went above and beyond to ensure that everything went smoothly. They took the time to ask about the cultural elements I wanted to incorporate into my reception and ensured that everything was executed accordingly. I would definitely recommend their services.

Abi from RK served as our wedding planner for the last several months leading up to our wedding. From the minute she took over, everything just seemed to run a whole lot smoother. She made order out of the chaos and helped us with just about everything by communicating with vendors, organizing our schedules, keeping us on track, serving as a wedding question hotline, and above all, ensuring that we were always excited and having fun, both during the planning process and the actual day of. She made sure the rehearsal and wedding day went off without a hitch, and we received numerous compliments from family and friends about Abi, with many saying she was the nicest and most effective wedding planner they'd ever been around. After working with her, we definitely agree!
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.
