We can’t say enough great things about Kara’s help on our day. We hired her a little late in the planning process after thinking we’d be able to manage everything ourselves. During our first conversation with Kara, we knew instantly that she was knowledgeable, professional, and organized. She helped us tie up a few loose ends (and find the last few vendors for things), took over with the vendors we had booked, confirmed everything, and helped us figure out a lot of details. On the day of the wedding, every little detail was accounted for - from managing family dynamics to making sure we had a plate of food to cleaning everything up afterward. Throughout the process Kara was incredibly responsive to emails and texts. She’s like a human xanax and immediately takes all the stress away. If you’re looking for a day-of coordinator, we can’t recommend Kara highly enough.Sent on 05/27/2019

Kara is BEYOND beyond!!
There are no words for how amazing Kara was throughout the entire planning process, and especially on the day. We hired her very early in our engagement and it was the best decision we made, hands down. Having her on board created a domino effect of awesomeness because she hooked us up with the very best vendors, all within our budget (and some well under!). She picked up on our vision immediately and knit our vague idea into this cohesive experience that just flowed so naturally. My photographer told me he’s never been to a wedding that ran so on time—despite having multiple locations, a huge wedding party, and a lot of moving parts, we were early to the ceremony (when does that happen??). The rest of the night was just exactly on the dot for every event. And I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful the spaces were—she had fantastic ideas that she executed at a VERY reasonable cost.Sent on 09/09/2019
We’ve gotten so many compliments on every aspect of the day, and it really comes down to Kara’s hard work. Every time we started to think something might be an issue, it turned out she’d already come up with a plan to fix it. And a lot of the potential problems we didn’t even hear about until the next day, because she’d just leapt in and smoothed it out before we could even notice. She even got a band playing across the street to hold off on their sound check until the speeches were over! We thought our wedding was just blessed by some mystical force that kept anything from going wrong—which in a way it was, because Kara definitely has some magical problem-solving powers going for her. So if you want a calming, charmed presence to sprinkle some fairy dust on your event, Kara is absolutely the person to hire.
Kara is such a dream to work with! She is cool, calm and collected, at all times and knows exactly what is going on from start to finish. She takes care of everything and makes the day run smooth. I would 100% recommend her to everyone looking for a coordinator!
