She is AMAZING! Worth every penny

Kristin & her team were amazing!! Helped out with so many things, both big and little, so everything went as planned! It was for my sister’s wedding and I was the MOH so I can’t take credit for booking her but I know how helpful she is!!

Worth their weight in gold!

Booking Kristin was hands down the best decision I made during wedding planning! I hired her as a day of coordinator, but she served as so much more. She was always available to provide recommendations and helped me handle numerous situations with less than ideal changes and situations with multiple vendors. She was so patient and thorough during meetings before the wedding day to make sure all of my questions were answered. On the wedding day, her and her team were worth their weight in gold! From fixing my bouquet before the ceremony to managing my veil during outdoor portraits, Kristin was always right where I needed her. John, her assistant, was also incredible. He made sure my husband and I and both of our families were taken care of on the day, including bringing hors d'oeuvres and drinks from our cocktail hour to us wherever we were while taking pictures on the golf course. Our wedding day was an absolute dream come true and it was due entirely to Kristin and her team! She came highly recommended from a friend and it isn’t hard to see why!
