I am very disappointed at Ms. Kim. To this date I haven't received my thank you cards. I have called her, left her messages and no response. The only way she communicates is by text. It's been since November 24th of 2015 since she promised she was going to send them. She was giving me so many excuses; she forgot to mail them, she moved to another house, she didn't have a phone for 2 weeks.. and the last one she mailed the thank you cards on December 30th. To this date January 15th 2016 I have not received them. It been such an unpleasant situation.

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.
