    The BEST team imaginable

    We cannot say enough good things about Erin! She was our day of coordinator for our November wedding, but helped us with a lot of final tasks and communication from about a month out. We considered ourselves to be pretty organized with our wedding planning but Erin really stepped in and made things so much more manageable for us. She is professional, kind, transparent, and quick to respond.

    Everything went so smoothly the day of. She did so much for us, even more than we probably still realize, from setting up our decorations perfectly, to communicating with all of the vendors and easing all of our worries. We had zero stress on our wedding day because of her.

    Amazing team for day of and pre-planning

    Erin and Karen of Rockfish Valley were both incredible to work with and provided a stress-free experience for us both during the event and while planning our wedding from out of state. We choose Rockfish as our Month of Coordinator for our wedding, but Erin provided several vendor recommendations as well as advice prior to that period as well. Having worked at our venue previously, the team was able to provide layout and timeline guidance that assured our wedding day ran smoothly. We met with the team twice virtually before the day, but also were able to shoot over quick questions and were always met with a quick and helpful response.

    Karen was the team member present on our wedding day, and handled any issues that arose: Including when a groomsmen had the wrong type of shirt and Karen ran out to the closest store to get a new one before the ceremony. We couldn't recommend them highly enough!

    Kind, Patient, and understanding

    Erin and her team did an excellent job keeping us on track with the timeline and keeping everything running smoothly. One of things we appreciated most was the understanding of our needs with our bilingual/Mexican-American Wedding. Erin and her team made our wedding be the stress free, fun, and romantic wedding that we wished for.

Team

Erin Kinsey
Erin Kinsey
Owner/Coordinator

I鈥檝e always had a deep passion for organizing and planning, and I believe that every special event deserves to be just as stunning as the landscape around us. With this philosophy in mind I founded Rockfish Valley Events by Design in 2019, and have since been building many valuable connections with industry-leading experts and vendors.

I make a point to showcase local vendors, and I know the quirks and unique aspects of many of them. This works in your advantage- I鈥檒l work day and night to guarantee that your next event will be filled with unforgettable moments, homegrown from right here among the Blue Ridge mountains I call home.

Karen Kudro
Karen Kudro
Coordinator

Karen is my associate coordinator! She has experience in hotel event coordination and decoration. Having Karen on our team allows us to increase our availability for clients during a busy season.

When she's not helping to coordinate events, she is at home raising her 3 kids and running a busy household. What better practice for keeping a strict timeline!

Haley McClelland
Haley McClelland
Assistant Coordinator

Haley is new to the team in 2021 and quickly making her way to the title of Lead Coordinator in the Fall of 2022. She is a second-year hospitality major at James Madison University in Harrisonburg and we have had so much fun taking her under our wings this season! Stay tuned to meet her at your next event.
