I’ll start by saying Kristin is worth every. single. penny. My husband and I hired her as our day-of coordinator for our wedding and she was simply impeccable! Another bride’s review read: “it is so evident they love what they do because they do it phenomenally” and I couldn’t agree more. From the moment I called Kristin, I IMMEDIATELY felt the weight of the ‘wedding world stress’ come off my shoulders. She made me feel like she had dropped everything she was doing to cater to all my crazy questions and make sure I was at ease that the planning process was smooth sailing from then on out. As a DIY bride, I had so many little details that I'd planned and they took my decorations and vision and made everything look even better than I could have imagined. She made sure that anything and everything we needed the entire day/night was taken care of before we even realized we needed something. How she kept track of everything, I still don’t know! She is incredibly organized, shared tons of tricks and tips, introduced us to amazing vendors, and above all ran everything PERFECTLY. I had no clue that anything had even gone wrong (tiny things that were actually MY fault) until I talked to her a few days later. They handled any little hiccup with vendors, food, guests, etc. flawlessly. There are not enough words to describe how grateful we are for Kristin (and her AMAZING staff!) for being part of our special day. Special shout out to the other Kristin who was just the most helpful, sweetest lady all day and Allan for his insane bartender skills, keeping the bar stocked the entire night, bringing my husband and I drinks all night…and for being eye candy to my single friends. The whole team just ROCKED and our guests felt the same way. I honestly felt like I had not only hired a wedding planner, but a friend to hold my hand from beginning to end. This was by far the best investment from our wedding! Don't just consider hiring Kristin, DO IT! You'll be so glad you did!!

Best Decision Ever!
During the beginning of the wedding planning process, I expressed to my (now) husband that the biggest fear I had for our wedding was that, on the actual day, I would be too stressed worrying about the little details to actually enjoy myself. After hearing that, Tim started searching Wedding Wire for a day-of coordinator with good reviews and at a reasonable cost. Finding Kristin was possibly the best planning move (and best investment) we made for our wedding! I CANNOT express how much of a joy it was to work with her! We initially met and began right away to plan out our schedule for the wedding day as well as discuss what we needed to get done by when. Kristin took all the guesswork out of our planning process. She was always quick to answer an email or a text message (even the week-of when I’d send multiple in a day). She was truly one of the greatest assets to making our day perfect. Not only was her knowledge of weddings and planning exceptionally helpful, she was also kind and always had our best interests in mind. It was always a joy to talk to Kristin on the phone and she was extremely encouraging and understanding when I was feeling stressed out. She and her team: created our timeline, touched base with all our vendors to finalize details before the wedding, met us at the rehearsal to make sure everyone knew their role, picked up our flowers from the florist, organized our wedding party for the photos at the church, set up the reception hall with all the centerpieces and decorations, checked my husband and I into our hotel room for the night-of, dropped off our belongings in our room, collected our decorations/gifts at the end of the reception, fixed my dress and held my flowers for me on multiple occasions, delivered multiple messages to multiple people for us throughout the evening, constantly communicated with us throughout the process, helped me keep my sanity, and probably did much more that I don’t even know about because the night and entire day ran so smoothly. The help didn’t stop there, the next couple of days she helped coordinate with my family to make sure we got all our things back and even dropped off the vases at the florists for us. I’m bummed out that the wedding is over, not only because the day itself was incredible, but also because I won’t be working with Kristin anymore. I would highly suggest her team to anyone getting married soon and looking for a day-of coordinator. Again, one of the BEST decisions my husband and I made when planning our wedding. (Even my family and friends raved about how great the entire team was)!

Day-of Coordinator Review
My husband and I booked Kristin as our day-of coordinator, but she started helping us well before the day of! Kristin was always friendly, enthusiastic, and responsive. We had an in-person meeting about a month before the wedding, where we started to draft the timeline and go over the different vendors we were working with. Kristin then finalized the timeline with the vendors (venue, photographer, DJ, florist) so everyone was on the same page. She also called the guests who hadn't RSVP'd, which was very helpful and let me avoid some potential awkwardness. She and Alan attended our rehearsal the night before so they could help everyone stay on track at the ceremony. They also helped to hand out the ceremony programs and bubbles on the day of, which was great because we didn't have ushers. During the reception, Kristin and her team checked in on us just often enough, and they helped with the smallest details and questions we had. My husband really got along with Alan and appreciated how attentive he was. Gibson fluffed and straightened my train when we were outside for pictures, which she did without me even asking and I was glad to have someone there to do that. At the reception, I was surprised by how many guests told my husband and me how smoothly things were going--that seems like such a specific compliment to give, so they must have meant it! We had even more guests tell us that in the couple of weeks after. And we know that it was thanks to Kristin and her team. We are so happy with how our wedding went and would definitely recommend Kristin!
I have been working with Kristin just a short while and I already know that this will be a long-term relationship. She is very professional, easy to work with, and is always there to steer her clients in the right direction.
Amazing coordination & perfect attention to the details!
