Kelly Rhodes at Southern Frills is the literal BEST!!!!

Kelly is absolutely amazing! My husband and I loved working with her! Kelly helped plan our New Year’s Eve reception and it was a literal dream! When I walked into the venue for the first time I was in tears at how incredible everything was! Not only is Kelly incredibly professional and organized, but she’s also one of the sweetest people I have ever met! Kelly’s meticulous attention to detail made for a perfect night! Everything was so easy and stress free! We could not have found a better event planner- she is FABULOUS! If you are lucky enough to get the opportunity to work with Kelly, you will be so impressed! Kelly is so talented and will make your event more amazing than you could ever imagine!!!!

The Best!!

Kelly and her team were an absolute dream to work with!! She was so patient and helpful in all of the decision making. She listened to all of my ideas and helped guide us in making the right choices for our wedding. On wedding day, she transformed the space and completely brought our vision to life. Our entire wedding day flowed perfectly thank to Kelly. We LOVED working with her and would hire her again in a heartbeat! Kelly genuinely cares about her clients and that shines through in her work!

Two thumbs up, 10/10, 5 star

Kelly and her team made my dream wedding a reality. I chose the full planning option + rehearsal planning + sparkler exit, which was worth every penny, I barely had to lift a finger. From finding exactly what I was looking for (or even better) to booking all the appointments and attending them with me so she could ask all the right questions. I was told by multiple people that they were surprised by how calm of a bride I was throughout the entire planning process, and I truly owe it all to Kelly. 10/10 recommend, especially if you want a beautiful but stress free wedding planned.
