Sheena was a phenomenal and integral partner in putting together our wedding. We used a brand new venue that hadn't yet done a large wedding and her help with the execution was impeccable. Nothing was supplied by the venue although we had to use their catering (i.e., serving trays, tables, linens, plates), but she was able to recommend great vendors for us that we were extremely happy with. She went above and beyond to help us and I would use her again in a heartbeat.

We hired The Invisible Hostess and had Sheena Kalso as our day-of coordinator, and the only regret I have is that we didn't come up with the money to have her just be our wedding planner from the beginning.
Sheena was pricier than some coordinators we looked into, but I'm so glad we paid a little extra for her and her team's expert hands. Right from the start, Sheena was friendly but also very professional and asked a lot of questions that I had no answers to. She gave me her proposal as well as tips for the planning even if I didn't go with her! The most important thing to me was to not have to do a damned thing at my wedding but show up.
As a day-of-coordinator, Sheena's services would be available to me a few weeks before the wedding, but she was available all year for advice on her phone and email - she hooked up a discount on a rental vendor and connected me to an affordable DJ who freakin' killed it. She sent an amazing wedding planning packet that had lots of great information in it.
We spent 3 hours a few weeks before the wedding going over EVERYTHING - guests, vendors, venue, deliveries, decor, toasts, etc - at which point she completely took over contact with vendors and created a timeline for us. She gave us great feedback on some of the timing of things and where the bar should be and where we should be for optimal flow. We were cc'd on everything, but she answered all vendors questions up until the day of.
She ran our rehearsal the day before and then the wedding - the wedding! One of the most common compliments we heard during and after the wedding was how smoothly everything ran. Sheena and her asst Kourtney wrangled guests, vendors, venue, and wedding party and they both looked like they were having a good time while doing it. She ran a tight ship and helped us pull off the most memorable night of our lives.

Mary and her team were a dream to work with. They were available, detail-oriented, organized and overall lovely to be around. My husband and I have no hesitation recommending them to anyone looking for wedding event planning.
I highly recommend the Invisible Hostess. They are friendly, fun, professional and put on a great party. You'll toast yourself for hiring them!
The gals from Invisible Hostess are FABULOUS! They are always on time, professional, organized, and pros at getting creative with last minute solutions! We love working with them every time.
Natasha is an amazing planner! She and her team were wonderful the day of the wedding and calmly encouraged and helped the bride and groom make decisions and helped make the Butcher/Dutton wedding a huge success. Guests are still raving about how much fun the party was! We are looking forward to working with the invisible hostess again!
