I wish that I could give Kelly 1 million stars in this review as she was a true blessing and saved our wedding! We were supposed to get married at 5 PM on Sat Oct 7, but due to hurricane Nate, my venue changed it to noon and only notified us less than 24 hours before. Kelly made a valiant effort and called every single one of the vendors and made sure they could participate 5 hours earlier than originally planned. Then that same evening around 11 PM, my wedding was completely cancelled by my original venue. With sincere grace and poise, Kelly scrambled to create a new plan the actual planned day of my wedding. She called everyone that she knew and my fiancé and I were able to get married on Sunday instead. By the time we finally got married, we had a new venue, new photographer, new caterer, a mini reception, and a whole new outlook on the true meaning of love and marriage. Nothing went as planned, but we were able to get married, and that was the most important thing to us. Nothing would have been made possible if it wasn't for Kelly. She is the most thoughtful, professional, organized, thorough, and resilient woman I have ever met. I would and will recommend her to everyone I know and anyone I meet. From the bottom of our hearts, we are forever grateful!!

The BEST, hands down
I thought after first getting engaged and starting the planning process that I wouldn't need a planner. **DO NOT FOR ONE SECOND THINK YOU DON'T NEED A PLANNER!!** I am so happy I talked to friends and family who encouraged me to look in to it. They know me better than I know myself and they really wanted me to enjoy my big day and not stress. That's where Kelly came in to save me. I decided to meet with her, because a consultation wasn't a big deal, it's just a meeting to see if I want to work with you kind of deal. Right off the bat, I knew she was organized and knew what she was doing. I felt so relaxed being around her, like I shouldn't have a care in the world and she would take care of it all. And boy, did she! All questions and concerns were directed to her. She coordinated all of my vendors; created a timeline; disbursed tips for us to the vendors. She set up the floor plan for us. She even made sure that I ate at the reception ( I wasn't very hungry from all the excitement, but she made sure I ate).She made sure the reception details were perfect and just how I had envisioned them; she checked on me and my husband and our parents through out the reception to see if we needed anything, if everything was going good; at one point I was so tired, she even tracked down an energy drink so I could continue through the reception. I cannot say enough about how awesome, professional, organized, and all around really nice Kelly is. If you are looking for a planner...wait scratch that...if you are engaged, you need to look for a planner, and I recommend you meet with Kelly at Southern Frills.

Kelly is the most PHENOMENAL wedding coordinator ever!!
There are not enough words to adequately describe the amazingness that is Kelly!! We hired her for the month-of coordination of our wedding and I wish I could hire her for all things in life. She was super responsive, helpful, and gave fantastic guidance when requested or needed. At the rehearsal, she gave very detailed, printed handouts of the wedding day to the entire bridal party + parents so everyone knew where to be and when. Not once did someone ask me what time something was supposed to happen or where they were supposed to be. As the bride, that was TREMENDOUSLY helpful!!! She checked in a few times the day of and always with the most beautiful and happy smile on her face. I never realized getting married could be so stress-free and easy until I worked with Kelly. My husband and I actually got to eat at the reception thanks to Kelly (he even got seconds!) and we never wanted for a water or drink as she had full glasses on our table or in our hands the entire night. Our guests also had nothing but great things to say about her as well, what a pleasure she was to be around and how beautifully she executed the wedding and reception. Brides – hire her immediately!! You will not regret this decision and she is worth it!
