She was worth every penny! I just got to enjoy my day and she made it beautiful!
I cannot recommend Fairytales by Kelsey enough! She did an incredible job helping us plan our wedding, and then coordinating day of. She was kind and patient and dealt with my husband and I being indecisive during the planning process.Sent on 05/08/2019
She helped me refine my vision of a chic, starry galaxy sci-fi wedding and managed to bring it into reality. She ran with it and took my mish-mash descriptions and random ideas and created a wedding that went far beyond my wildest dreams! Kelsey took charge when we couldn't make decisions, suggested ideas that I didn't think of, and managed to bring us back to reality on some ideas.
If you don't hire her for any planning, she was well worth it for day of coordination. The last week of planning, I think I handled one email from a vendor and then bringing everything to the venue for ease of access for her day of. At the rehearsal, she wasn't afraid to use a loud voice indoors, which was very handy with my loud family! She got people in shape and readied everyone for the next day. Day of, I woke up and went off to hair and makeup and took photos with family. There was no stress of setting up, I just gave her boxes and she took liberty with it all. She had little details, like a table runner and candles on top of a mantle, that I'd never have thought of. Minutes before our ceremony, our Man of Honor's coat button popped off, but there she was with a sewing kit and fixing it. Any questions went straight to her.
She was worth her weight in gold. I just got to enjoy my day. She and her assistant got rave reviews from everyone. They were incredibly professional. Any future events I host will definitely be planned by her! She made my day go off without a hitch and I cannot thank her enough!

Wedding coordinator of our dreams!
Kelsey was absolutely amazing! We loved her and would highly recommend her to anyone. She was incredibly organized and was not afraid to take charge when it was necessary. She was vital to the success of our wedding day. Kelsey arrived early to set up tables and centerpieces, and realized we had didn’t have table cloths. She quickly found a rental company and was able to do so without creating stress for myself or my husband. An hour before the wedding was to start, I realized I had a couple makeup stains on my wedding dress. Within a minute Kelsey came back from her car with a cleaning product, and she had the stains removed right away! Those are just a couple examples of how organized Kelsey is, and how quick she is to jump into action when needed. We’d hire her again in a heartbeat. She’s the best!Sent on 09/12/2019

Kelsey is the best!
I don’t know how we would have managed without Kelsey. We hired Fairytales by Kelsey as a partial planner as both the bride and groom families were from out of town and we did not know local vendors. In addition, the wedding was nor in a regular venue, but on the bride and groom’s farm which meant that absolutely everything had to be rented and brought in. Although we had several in person meetings when we were all in town, we also communicated often by email where she was able to provide lists local vendors. Not only did she provide excellent service, but by using her vendor recommendations, we actually saved money.Sent on 08/25/2019
She did an incredible job helping plan our wedding, and then coordinating day of. She was kind and patient and dealt with the bride and groom and a complex group of two sets of parents during the planning process.
In addition to the rehearsal and wedding day, we also hired her to help organize and staff the rehearsal dinner which was also on the farm. The rehearsal itself would have been a disaster without her. She was able to take charge and make sure that everything and everyone was in place for a beautiful ceremony the following day.
Kelsey was also very understanding of our budget constraints which meant that we enlisted the help of volunteers to help with set up. She helped us set up a schedule to make sure that all the necessary tasks were completed on time. It was wonderful to just be able to enjoy the rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception, knowing that everything would be taken care of.
Kelsey is very professional easy to work with, and attends to every detail. Everything went off without a hitch and we cannot thank her enough!

You need Kelsey on your big day
Kelsey was the best decision I ever made! If you are deciding if you need to have a coordinator, you need her.Sent on 07/15/2019
Not only she magically pulled out safety pins, tide to go pens, donuts(lol), she also made me a worry free bride. Everything is in place how I wanted them to be, and she will remind you where to go, what to do next along your side.
Kelsey is extremely professional and efficient. When my donut wall didn't come out how I wanted it to be, she just said " you say the words, I will make it happen" and she did!
Thank you, Kelsey.

Appropriately named; Kelsey is the Fairy Godmother you need
My husband and I are both type-A, extremely organized people with high standards, and we knew we found the right person with Kelsey. Do not let the reasonable pricing fool you, she's worth her weight in gold. Her professionalism, consistency in emails and updates, and experience made our big day unforgettable, and we owe a large part of it to her. We specifically enjoyed not having to worry about breaking down at the end of the night, as she's there from start to finish. We would recommend her 100% to any couple who's looking for a day-of coordinator.Sent on 07/07/2019

Day-of-Event Package a Perfect Fit
Fairytales by Kelsey provided us with stellar, professional support throughout the planning phase of our wedding, and most importantly, on the big day. We opted for the Day-Of-Event Package, which included an initial telephone consultation, ongoing check-ins via email to stay on track, a meeting at the venue location with Kelsey and her assistant, Rania, one month before the event, and then a planner on-site at the venue the day of the event. This package was a great option for us, as we were comfortable making the arrangements for catering, music, decorations, photographer ourselves – we just didn’t want to have to run the show once the day arrived (or ask friends and family to work at our party). We provided the planner with contact information for our vendors and ceremony participants, then Kelsey put together a Wedding Day Timeline, as well as a Seating Plan, based on the hall dimensions at the venue. We truly felt we were in very capable hands with Fairytales by Kelsey, which allowed us to relax and just let it all unfold.Sent on 09/06/2019
On the day of our wedding, which happened to be a rainy Northwest day, our planner did an amazing job coordinating our guests to line up outside for our grand arrival during a brief break in the weather and encouraged guests to wave Norwegian and Swedish flags as we pulled up in a 1923 convertible Model-T. It made for a memorable moment, allowing our fun, theatrical side to be indulged. The seating plan went through a couple of revisions in the days leading up to the event, due to an expanding guest count and limited floor space. Fairytales by Kelsey kept up with our requests and adapted the seating arrangements beautifully, settling on a final configuration which was superior to anything we could have imagined. The tables were configured and decorated to perfection. The ceiling twinkle lights looked fantastic - we so appreciated the efforts that went into this challenging aspect of the decorations. We loved how the room looked and were thankful how faithfully Fairytales by Kelsey executed our vision. We received so much positive feedback from friends and family. Many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended, with a big emphasis on FUN. Much credit for this goes to a great planning team!
On the back end of the event, Fairytales by Kelsey made sure our venue was ship-shape after everything concluded. The hall was clean from top to bottom, leaving no issues for us to take care of the following day. It meant so much to us to have such thorough, reliable help from our planner.
We appreciate all the small details Fairytales by Kelsey attended to that we never knew about. We enjoyed every minute of our wedding, and so did everyone we spoke with afterwards. We recommend Fairytales by Kelsey without hesitation. Thank you again for doing a wonderful job for us.

Piece of mind for a great value
I decided to hire Kelsey for our wedding when I realized I couldn't get ready, set up and be present at my wedding. Family tends to want to reorganize their way. With Kelsey it's your wedding you way. Kelsey did a wonderful job with all the small details and checking in with me. Our wedding wouldn't have turned out as well without her!Sent on 01/06/2019

Absolutely Amazing, & Life Saver!
Kelsey was just fabulous! She is so sweet and understanding. Without her my wedding would've been nothing but chaos. She was fantastic, listened to everything I wanted and made the decor absolutely beautiful! I was a very calm bride and glad that my mom didn't have to stress over anything either so I could enjoy her and my day! I would highly recommend Kelsey for any wedding! Thank you so much Kelsey for everything, you are amazing!Sent on 12/03/2018

Get ready to experience the wedding of your dreams!
Kelsey was my "day-of" wedding planner and was absolutely amazing! She brought my vision to life and went above and beyond my expectations. Everything from the center pieces to the activity table was laid out perfectly. I couldn't have asked for anything more. She will truly help you along the way and give you her honest opinion. I recommend Kelsey to anyone that is looking for a talented event planner at an affordable price!Sent on 12/03/2018
