    Karli with The Wedding Authority

    We loved working with Karli at TWA! Our wedding was amazing and beyond expectations. She was very patient with us and spent countless hours planning our wedding and answering our questions. Would highly recommend!

    Nothing short of Amazing

    I can not say enough good things about the Wedding Authority. Karli was our wedding coordinator and absolutely INCREDIBLE!

    She is everything you would ever want in a coordinator. From our first meeting over the phone, she was knowledgeable, friendly, organized, and provided much assurance. She was always on top of every part of the planning including monthly reminders, check ins, and vendor follow ups. She was always available to help work through all the fine details regardless of the day of the week or time of day. She made us feel like we were her number one priority and only couple (despite that being far from the truth)

    We planned the wedding from across the country and could not have done it without her. She offered her candid advice on every vendor and was very flexible to work well within our budget and limited travels to the venue. Her flexibility was even more apparent on the day of the wedding: she kept things running smooth, on time, all while accommodating lat minute requests.

    Would 1000x choose the Wedding Authority again and again.
