    The event essentials is simply amazing!! I was having a huge crisis with my original stationary company and as soon as I could I dumped them and found Kim. She is the owner of The Event Essentials and she went above and beyond for me! She was such a delight to work with and she saved the day for me when it comes to one of the biggest parts for a wedding which is of course, the stationary; invitations, escort cards, programs the whole nine yards. If you use this company for any of your big days in life she WILL NOT let you down.

    As an award winning wedding planner in Scottsdale, it was so important that I choose a Invitation and wedding paper products designer that could deliver creativity, innovative design, quality product. I naturally chose someone that I refer to my clients on a regular basis and I knew had the ability to deliver incredible results. Kim is not only a incredible graphic designer, she also use to be a planner, so she knows the importance of paper in relation to the overall esthetic of wedding design. She also is extremely knowledgeable about wording etiquette which is something every Bride struggles with. The design process working with a wedding planner such as myself was not an easy task - but she took it with great stride and gave me all of the drafts I requested and made any changes I needed. She even came out and helped me assemble some of my wedding products she helped create. What I love the most about Kim and her work ethic is that she is so easy to get along with, she makes the process so fun, she goes over and beyond to find you product and stylized paper that is unique to you, and her recommendations are always forward thinking. She puts tremendous energy and work into all of her clients and it shows - even the wedding publications want to feature her - there is NO wedding magazine on the shelves that isn't featuring her work. She is sought after! I wouldn't have picked anyone other than Kim for my wedding - she is incredibly talented - and if you are considering - you picked the right gal! I will continue to endorse her to all of my Brides!!
