    So thankful we found Silver Thistle

    We booked Silver Thistle three months before our wedding. COVID had just chucked our plans for Big Sur out the window and we had just finalized our new venue closer to home which had used a big chunk of our budget. I was ready to settle on whatever generic vendors that would allow me to finalize everything on time. Our photographer suggested we chat with Kim before giving up on our vision for our big day.

    Kim was offering a package for small weddings that included her design and planning expertise, reception rentals, florals, and catering which sounded like a god send on our tight timeline. Though her pricing was very fair and competitive for the market, we hesitated to hand over what was basically the rest of the money we had allotted for the wedding. After pouring over her portfolio and asking her five million questions, we agreed on the package.

    BEST DECISION EVER. Kim took my hodge podge wedding pinterest board (I had pictures from Lord of the Rings and some opium dens in there) and turned it into our dream wedding. She knew within one meeting the exact vendors that matched our tastes and personalities. She truly listens and engages when she speaks with you. She doesn’t try to force any of the conventional ideas of a wedding and is only interested in what fits who you are as a couple. If we aren’t sure of an idea, she has three more to replace it. I cried the day she sent over her vision board- it was such a relief to have chosen the right person to hand our big day over to. Planning our wedding suddenly became fun again instead of a giant weight. We were blown away by the tasting at the catering team she had chosen. I think my mouth literally fell open when we met the florist and saw what she had collaborated with them on for our table centerpieces. When we asked her to recommend a good band- we booked the one she suggested without even hearing them first. That is the level of trust she created.

    Seeing everything come together on our wedding day gave me such peace. There weren’t any details to worry about- she was on it. Instead, I got to concentrate on celebrating the lifelong commitment I was making with my best friend. Not everything went off without a hitch (to be expected when you enlist your family members instead of professionals to be the officiant, makeup artist, hair stylist, and emcee), but Kim quickly dealt with any hiccups efficiently and behind the scenes. Our reception was hands down the most beautifully decorated venue I have ever seen. This woman is gifted! All of our guests told us all night that it was so “us”. Every detail felt right and purposeful. Everyone raved about the food and one table actually asked for seconds-at a wedding! The florals were dark and moody and dripping from everything. The band had every single person on the dance floor. Once our night reached an end, we received a hundred photos Kim had secretly taken on her phone throughout the day-knowing our photographer wouldn’t be able to get us any for a while and we would want them. She is so in tune with what is important to couples.

    I can promise that you will not regret placing your trust in Silver Thistle. Our planning experience turned from a burden into a source of joy and excitement the moment Kim stepped in. You don’t have to do it all alone, and you don’t have to sacrifice your vision. Kim is like a combination of cool aunt and fairy god mother and she is there to make it all better.

    Flexible and Reliable

    Kimberley at Silver Thistle Events was amazing to work with. From our initial conversations, it was clear that she was going to work with us to make our vision for our wedding come true. Kimberley had a number of great relationships with vendors that we were able to tap into through her and she worked just as well with the vendors that we hired that she had not previously worked with.

    She tirelessly worked with us and our vendors when we had to move our initial wedding date and make adjustments as we changed our guest count.

    By the time the day of our wedding finally arrived, we know we could trust Kimberley to handle any and all of the challenges of the day. We can’t believe how much we were able to just enjoy our wedding without sweating the small stuff.

    Silver Thistle made our daughters wedding fabulous!

    To say Kimberley is truly incredible when it comes to planning and design does not fully encompass her gift. She has a way of making everything beautiful and more fantastic than you imagined and keeping the vibe low key at the same time. We had an engagement party, bridesmaids brunch, rehearsal dinner, chapel, and reception venue with entertainment and dinner for 200 all in the hands of Silver Thistle. As my husband said, hiring Silver Thistle was the single best investment we made with regard to our daughters wedding. Our mid December wedding came during the typical holiday stress. Kimberley's handling of events took my stress away. She was always available and her assistants were wonderful. Her vendor recs were spot on. Every event we hosted felt flawless in her capable hands. She thought of and covered every detail. She heard what was important to us and kept it a priority. I give her credit for making my daughters wedding day a breathtaking moment in time. I can't recommend her more highly. I will hire her again in a heartbeat. She is a precious gem.
