Kersti has a lot of heart and works hard
Working with Kersti was great. I think we were her first full wedding planning, but she found every single one of our vendors, who were also generally fantastic and reasonably priced. She was always available and very responsive, and she didn't have a maximum amount of time she would spend with us before charging more. She also went to all of our vendor meetings and took notes.Sent on 11/17/2019
We got married in a non-venue (a friend's cabin in Graeagle), so it took a LOT of work to create a wedding venue out of nothing. She didn't shy away from it, and in fact came with us several times to the cabin even though it was about an hour outside of Reno to plan it. She also helped plan our rehearsal dinner, although she wasn't able to make it herself.
Once we had to go on a surprise hike for our Sunday plans, since our friend had to leave, and she not only came with us but was extremely positive about it even though it probably took about 45 minutes.
Kersti had wedding decorations in her possession that she let us borrow. She also helped us with DIY projects that we wouldn't have been able to finish on our own.
Kersti did a great job on our wedding day. Our DJ was slightly problematic (the only vendor who was), but Kersti stayed on top of him to make sure things flowed smoothly. As far as I'm aware, there was only one major thing that went wrong during our wedding day, and that had to do with family members; it was completely outside of our control. I'm sure other things went wrong as well, but it never reached me.
I also had trouble with the photographer after our wedding, but Kersti still stepped up to help me.
My one wish is that Kersti was slightly more organized, but I think that will come with experience since again, we were her first full wedding planning. Thank you Kersti for everything!

The BEST Coordinator
I could not have pulled off my wedding without Kersti. She made the whole day possible and for me to just relax. She is one of the best decisions we made during planning!Sent on 07/31/2019

Kersti really is the best DOC out there! Yesterday was our big day and it wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without her. She is reliable, so kind, attentive, fun and just all around amazing. She was there for us from start to finish, everyone was blown away with everything she did! We couldn’t be happier with her!Sent on 06/09/2019

Best wedding planner ever!
Kersti is AMAZING!! My husband and I live in Phoenix and had our wedding in Reno. She was my lifelike to planning my wedding! She kept me in the loop on everything and always let me know what she was doing. I had a lot of jumbled ideas for what I wanted and she turned them into my perfect wedding! She researched a bunch of venues for us before we came to visit so that we didnt need to waste anytime on places that wouldn't work for us. The arch that I wanted she couldn't find anywhere so she made it for me! Our centerpieces were mickymouse heads made of flowers, my favorite flowers. She made all of them! And we had 18 tables! Our wedding was disney themed and I told her my concerns about it looking like a kid birthday party, but she made it look so classy! Kersti made sure that we didnt have to stress or worry about anything on our big day or even before! She made planning a wedding more fun and a lot less stressful! I honestly wouldn't have had my perfect day if it wasnt for her! I would recommend her to everyone! Even if you are planning a destination wedding, she's perfect!Sent on 11/03/2018

Kersti was amazing! Her price was uncomprable to any other coordinator we researched and the quality of work was not compromised. She went out our of her way to make things work for us. She set everything up and packed everything away at the end of the night. On top of her good work she was extremely nice and persoabke and fit right in with the guests. It was like having another good friend hanging with you on your wedding day :) if you need a coordinator pick Kersti ??Sent on 08/24/2018

Best DOC around!!!
Kersti saved our lives and our wedding! A few months before the wedding, we realized we needed a day-of coordinator because I realized I would be way too busy to make sure everything was set up the way we wanted. We hired Kersti and met with her about 2 weeks before. We walked the venue together, showed her pictures, and gave her a breakdown of what we wanted, how we wanted things set up, the schedule, etc. Kersti took it and ran with it, and everything was beyond perfect, better than I even could've imagined! We didn't have to worry about a single thing the entire day, she took care of everything! If she was this great for just day of coordinating, I can't imagine what she could do with full planning services. Highly recommend, 5 stars!!!Sent on 02/21/2019

Kersti was amazing!! She took over everything from day 1 and provided everything I needed, and much more. Day of she was my go-to for everything; from decorations and reception set up to queuing my father and I to start our walk down the aisle. She is extremely professional, so much fun and a great person all around. I felt like one of my close friends was taking care of me, I should have had her as a bridesmaid! You will not be disappointed with anything from KerstiSent on 04/20/2018

Kersti was amazing! My wedding was a distinction wedding and she handled all the details for me as I could not be there. I hired Kersti for day of service coordination but she did so much more. She worked on wedding weeks before. She decorated 2 reception areas, and wedding ceremony. She stayed the hole time from 7 am to 9:30 pm. She is creative and enthusiastic. She created a wonderful memorable experience. I would recommend 100 times over!Sent on 10/02/2017

We LOVED everything Kersti did! We had originally chosen someone else as a wedding planner and when everything started falling apart, she jumped in. Kersti took control and made our dreams come true with our whimsically vintage theme, to decorations and more. She made every step of our day perfect and I didn't stress out once. HIGHLY recommend this lovely lady.Sent on 08/01/2017

Wedding planning - bride
Kersti is very sweet easy to communicate with , we could have had better communication the month of but after speaking with her we decided the week of was better , she is very flexible , made sure our venue was cleaned up perfectly , her price range is fair ! I feel like any task you ask of her she will try and do the best to complete ! I had a disaster with my wedding flowers all coming in not looking so hot and she did great recovering them.Sent on 06/24/2019

Unprofessional wedding planner
Wedding planning can be very stressful. At some point, we needed to hire a planner because it was getting to be too much. This wedding planner was hired pretty close to the wedding date and we were ensured everything was in good hands. However, that was not the case. Many of the "basics" were not considered in the planning like, dessert plates and forks, coffee canisters, a gift table, etc. Also, a week before the wedding many items were still up in the air. For example, the planner did not know how the bride was going to the venue, who was picking up the cake, that the groom's father was deceased. Little details added up to family members having to help out.Sent on 01/04/2019
This wedding planner brought a lot of good ideas to the table but, the execution was lacking. Many of the issues during the day of were blamed on the catering company which did what they were hired to do. I would not recommend this planner to any bride who wants to have a smooth, stress-free wedding.
