Where do I even begin!? I honestly could go on and on about how PERFECT Kristeen is and describe every little detail from our year of planning together because that is what she does - ensure that every little detail is just right and exactly how you want it. After interviewing over a dozen Wedding Planners - we knew almost instantly that she was the one! Choosing her as our full time wedding planner was honestly the BEST decision we could have EVER made!! She went above and beyond and turned our vision and imagination in to reality. It was BETTER than we could have ever dreamed of. Our Wedding Day was PURE PERFECTION and that is ALL because of Kristeen. There was no way we could have pulled off such a SPECTACULAR event without her skills, expertise, professionalism and creative mind. Did I mention that she is also SUPER organized and responsive?? Because she is!! My husband and I are VERY picky people and VERY particular and she was sooooo patient and accomodating. We truly trusted her with everything - rarely would we let someone make so many decisions for us and yet, time and time again we said “You choose, Kristeen!” Working with her was such a joy and she has been missed in our daily lives! You simply cannot go wrong with Kristeen and her team - they are the best! Don’t hesitate, hire her NOW!Sent on 04/16/2018

YOU MUST HIRE KRISTEEN! She is punctual, detail oriented and has a wonderfully frank and calm personality. She will tell you if something honestly won't work, but is always ready with other options. She was encouraging of my vision and was great at providing ideas and support when I couldn't put thoughts into words. She keeps a folder with all e-mails and ideas that you have mentioned and quickly forgot about amongst all the chaos of planning your wedding. She helped me stay on track and was working so much magic behind the scenes that whenever I checked in on her about something, she was always 2 steps ahead of me. Kristeen is worth every penny. We got married October 2nd at the Bel Air Bay Club and I miss calling and e-mailing her!Sent on 11/21/2016

Kristeen is a wonderful wedding planner! She was very hands on and made the entire process of planning our wedding fun, creative, and much less stressful than I imagined. I highly recommend hiring her!Sent on 12/04/2016

We hired Kristeen for her full-service wedding planning package, and “full-service” doesn’t even begin to describe it! Instead of just checking off items on a list, Kristeen likes to get a sense of your style to really make sure that your wedding is uniquely you. We really appreciated her straightforwardness because it saved us both time and frustration. She made us feel like we had a great advocate when it came to dealing with the venue, vendors, and other contractors involved. Her recommendations for vendors were excellent and her rolodex is a very valuable tool. On the day she did a great job of keeping everything running smoothly and keeping any hiccups (and stress) away from our view. She’s not afraid to fight for you but she doesn’t want you to feel like there is fighting, which is exactly what you need on your wedding day. A+++++++++++++++++++Sent on 11/04/2015

Book Kristeen as your wedding planner. Period.Sent on 03/01/2013
Her attention to detail, professionalism, and passion for creating the perfect event is incredible. From our first meeting and pouring out my ideas (way too many to incorporate into 1 wedding) she was right there. She always gave great advice, and support when needed. She helped me narrow down ideas and recommended vendors that fit our style and could contribute to our overall vision. I often gaze at our wedding pictures and am incredibly grateful for all of her hard work and dedication to our wedding. During the entire planning process there was not one moment when I felt that our wedding wasn’t her #1 priority. She was always easy to contact and followed through on everything she promised.
I can't think of anything that didn't look or go as I had planned. This speaks volumes, after having such a huge vision and a crazy wedding binder full of ideas.
Not only is she an awesome wedding planner she is like your best girlfriend. She is full of knowledge and always gives an honest opinion.
Kristeen- Thank you so much for all your assistance in helping plan our (more like my) dream wedding. Every time we see a wedding guest to this day the first thing they say to us is your wedding was beautiful and no detail was left undone, so thank you for pulling it all together. It wouldn't have been possible without your help. Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality.

Kristeen was invaluable to us as a planner, friend, problem solver, etc. She was so helpful and patient. Could never have done it without her! And she is just a generally wonderful person. Our do it yourself venue required a lot of coordination and Kristeen was always prepared and on it! You are the BEST Kristeen, THANK YOU!!!Sent on 08/06/2012

There are no words that I could say that would equal the gratitude we feel for having had Kristeen with us during our wedding planning & the day of the wedding. She went above and beyond the call of duty throughout the whole process. And since I'm one of the last of my friends to have gone through the whole wedding hoopla, I know just how essential her presence was in keeping things organized and going so smoothly throughout the day. We didn't see any of the mishaps or snafus that are so common to weddings, because she's so professional & on top of things. In addition to doing such a great job, she's always so much fun and I was glad to be myself-as silly as I can be, and she never put up a snooty attitude, indeed she jumped right in the silliness!Sent on 08/06/2012

As a newlywed, I have the absolute honor in rating Kristeen with 5 stars all around! I had the pleasure of using her for about a year and half , up to my wedding date. Since the day we signed contract she was there for absolutely anything I needed, from making my invitations, to save the dates, to games for my bridal shower, my sign in tree, and so much more. It didn't matter the time or place all I had to do was write an email and or text and she responded right away. Not once did she get sick of my Bridezillaness ; ) And if she did , I never knew because she always made me feel great about all the decisions and or questions being made through out the whole process. The wedding day and night could not have been any more perfect because of Kristeen. She is an absolute expert at her job and has more knowledge than anyone I know about her field of work. She was always sure to give me many options, work within our budget, and keep us in check when we were stepping out. I would reccommend her to any future brides and can gurantee she is worth every last penny, she's amazing!Sent on 08/08/2012

Hiring Kristeen was the best wedding decision I made! She was the first and only planner I met and interviewed in person. I had a few other interviews scheduled, but after meeting her I canceled with the others and hired her the same day. I immediately felt comfortable with her, but what really sold me on her was that she got my vision instantly. I had not picked a venue upon meeting with her and told her what I was looking for in a venue. She immediately recommended the Bel Air Bay Club and it was love at first sight. She is organized,reliable, flexible, responsive, professional and creative. As a bride I had a vision but needed a lot of help executing it. Kristeen was able to connect me with the perfect vendors to make my wedding exactly what I had envisioned. I cannot emphasize enough how important it was to me that she was so responsive. She responded to all calls, texts and emails very quickly, definitely within 24hrs. There is nothing worse than a wedding vendor you can never get in touch with!!! No matter what issue I had, Kristeen was able to come up with a solution without even breaking a sweat. Throughout the whole process I never felt stressed or freaked out because Kristeen was so on top of things. I definitely recommend hiring Kristeen for your wedding planning needs. It will give you peace of mind so you can just sit back, relax, and enjoy your special day!

Kristeen was amazing, she did an awesome job at our wedding and I will always be grateful to her. From the first time we spoke to her we felt very comfortable and we knew that she was someone we can rely on.Sent on 01/28/2012
She is very organized, extremely professional, courteous and always available. She is a great listener and she always understood our needs. She would always make things work and go above and beyond. We felt that we were always in good hands and that she had everything under control. We trusted her blindly. She answered our emails and phone calls right away. She always had a solution for us or a plan "b" in case of road blockers. She provided smart suggestions, referrals, tips, great vendors recommendations and lots of support.
We will always remember her help, support and hard work, she really made our day and it was perfect. Thanks to her our wedding day was the best day of our lives.
We highly recommend Kristeen to anyone thinking about getting married and we are going to miss her tremendously.

Hiring Kristeen to help with my wedding was the best wedding decision I made. I didn't want to spend the money on a planner, but I knew I needed a day-of coordinator at least, so a friend urged me to hire Kristeen. I took a leap of faith and I really cannot express how happy I am that I listened. She made the weeks prior and most importantly, the day of, completely stress free for me. I didn't have to ask her to do a single thing. She knew what to do and did everything on her own. She went above and beyond what I expected. She always came to me, was available whenever I needed her and was always professional. I left certain design decisions up to her as I was burned out on making decisions as the wedding neared; when I got to the venue and saw how she set everything up, I was beyond thrilled. She has an amazing eye for design and detail. She is WELL worth the money. I can't imagine the day-of stress I would have encountered without her.Sent on 12/19/2011

I have had the chance to work with Kristeen on two occasions now. One a style shoot and the other a baby shower. She knocked both out of the park and both shoots were featured on some of the top blogs. Kristeen is on top of it all from the details and style down to the knitty gritty timeline. Her style and ideas are unique, but she is still connected to the client to find what fits them and their needs best. Kristeen is very personable and energetic and with that winning combination will make your event amazing.Sent on 12/01/2011
It was a pleasure to work with her each time and I look forward to working with her more in the future.

There are not enough words to express what a truly outstanding wedding planner Kristeen LaBrot is. She has a network of talented vendors at every price point so you can decide which parts of your wedding you want to scrimp and splurge on. She is very organized and keeps detailed notes of every meeting and every conversation. She has excellent taste and can help you come up with fresh ideas when you are stuck and also finish the odds and ends that spring up as the wedding nears. She listens to your budget concerns and will help you stay on track. She is calm, she is kind and most of all she is smart! She will be able to tackle all your wedding needs and will do it in style. Hire her, it will be the best wedding decision you make.Sent on 10/10/2011

Kristeen was worth every penny that we paid her. In fact I don't think we paid her enough. My fiance and I both looked forward to our meetings with her because she was already in a great mood. She had vendors to recommend at all price ranges. At the wedding, she took care of all the unforeseeable problems that occurred without batting an eye. For example, a few of our guest place cards got mislabeled, which she corrected without me having to get involved. She moved around one of the kids who was sitting at the kids table but who wanted to sit with her mommy. We only purchased her month-of package but we always felt that we her full attention throughout our planning process of more than a year and half. We had over 10 different vendors and Kristeen coordinated all their arrival times and set-up so I could spend more time with my family the week before the wedding. She also made us a detailed timeline and made sure we stayed on schedule. Kristeen is truly a delight to work with.Sent on 09/26/2011

We loved Kristeen. She helped us with every detail of our wedding. She got back to me right away when I had questions, and she always responded with tons of options. She calmed me down when I was stressed, handled all of the details, and ran the big day without a hitch. If you choose Kristeen, you won't be disappointed. She really cares about her brides, and she will bust her ass to make sure everything runs smoothly for your big day.Sent on 08/25/2011

Kristeen gave my Husband and I the peace of mind throughout our planning and ensured that our wedding day would look BETTER than we could have dreamed. She is extremely detail oriented which worked perfectly with our extremely detailed ceremony and reception set up and breakdown. Kristeen only recommended the best vendors in Los Angeles and Orange County and her professionalism was shining through on wedding day! I could not have chosen a better person to keep my vendors on point all day long!Sent on 08/08/2011

Kristeen was an amazing wedding planner who thought of everything! She'll give you great suggestions to help enhance your wedding..but she knows it's your vision and won't try pushing any ideas on you. We worked with Kristeen for a year to plan our day. She was incredibly flexible and super easy to reach. I always heard back from her, sometimes in just a few minutes, when I emailed a question. She contacted and stayed on top of all the vendors and on our day, we were able to just relax and enjoy everything because she was there to ensure it was all running smoothly. She is also wonderfully charismatic...our families had wonderful things to say about her and she made everyone feel important. During the process, I had several lunches with Kristeen. It's like hanging out with a dear girlfriend who just happens to know everything you'll need to know to navigate through the planning process. Kristeen is a modern planner who is always learning more and researching the newest styles and trends in weddings. If she doesn't know about something, she'll find out for you and she was great about keeping us on budget and helping us find the best vendors for our buck. Kristeen can advice you on everything from dress shops, wedding party gifts, favors, to restaurants for rehearsal dinners. My husband and I always say, "Kristeen was definitely the best investment we could have ever made during the planning process". Also, I have no doubt she managed to save us more money than we paid her..so if you are on the fence about getting a planner, please do and make it Kristeen.Sent on 08/13/2011

I met with a handful of wedding coordinators and when I met Kristeen, I knew I had found the one :) She was laid back, but super organized, and she seemed to get my concept and direction from the get-go. She was generous with her time, responsive and a lot of fun to work with (meeting over a cocktail never hurts!) She went above and beyond in the two months before our wedding (we booked her as month of coordinator) and was stellar for the rehersal and on the big day! AMAZING value for her prices too :) Book her!Sent on 07/25/2011

In a word, Kristeen was AMAZING! My husband found her online, and we had a great experience with her from the start. Kristeen was super responsive to every single email and request we sent, and was super supportive and excited through the entire planning process. It was so nice to meet with Kristeen each time and know she had everything under control. She was also flexible to meet our needs by adjusting her communication and organization style to streamline our process and work with our schedules. My husband and I both had demanding jobs and had to move to a new home during the 6-month wedding planning process, and Kristeen made the process as smooth and seamless as we could have hoped. We really appreciated how she seemed to take such a personal interest in our wedding planning, and she went the extra mile for us in so many ways.Sent on 07/20/2011
When we booked Kristeen, we knew she was already booked for our wedding day, so she sent her assistant to do the day-of coordination. My only regret is not having Kristeen there on our wedding day to share in the event we all planned together. If you want a laid-back, but super organized, creative and flexible wedding planner, I highly recommend Kristeen. She was truly a pleasure and blast to work with.

I can't even tell you how much Kristeen saved the day for one of our weddings! It's not all the time a caterer can rave about a planner they have worked with. We often don't get to choose who will be on-site with our brides and grooms on the day of. Working with Kristeen has been nothing short of professional, fun and efficient. We were in dire need of table #'s 1 day prior to the wedding and I reached out to her for professional expertise. She was a blessing in disguise and sent over some of her sample graphic design work she had done before. She even offered to drop them off to our venue on the day of. They looked amazing and I'm continuously thankful:)Sent on 07/07/2011

Kristeen is the best! She is very friendly and extremely professional. The balance of these two qualities is very important to me. I like to feel like I can speak to someone as a friend but know that they have the experience to get the job done correctly and efficiently. It is really nice to have someone who will answer your emails quickly. I really appreciate timeliness in getting back to me. I did a lot of do it yourself stuff for my wedding reception and she handled the set up perfectly. I knew as long as Kristeen was there, things would run smoothly. I had a giant fiasco with the banquet hall the night of my wedding that continued after the big day, but Kristeen was helpful even after my wedding had passed. Just hire her already before she is all booked :)Sent on 07/10/2011

I met Kristeen six months before my wedding. We instantly got along and I knew my search for a wedding planner was over 10 minutes into our meeting. I was so impressed by her reviews, work experience and professionalism. She has such creative and unique ideas, not to mention fabulous taste in EVERYTHING (just look at her blog). Kristeen is so detail oriented and organized; I constantly saw her scribbling notes at each of our meetings. She always followed up with my vendors and made sure I did not miss a thing. At our last meeting, she asked if I had my shoes yet. I told her I bought grey shoes by default because I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of yellow ones I'd probably use once. When I got home, Kristeen had sent me several links for affordable yellow shoes which I ended up buying! It's the extra effort that amazes me and makes Kristeen stand out from the rest. At the rehearsal, our family and friends were equally impressed by Kristeen. She's a natural leader with a great sense of humor. We all see she is so passionate about her job. Our wedding day was perfect in my mind and I have Kristeen to thank for that. She was there for us every step of the way. I even got to take a photo booth picture with her. The next day, I found out my vendors had packed huge boxes of leftover food for us (we had a ten course Chinese banquet) fearing we did not get enough to eat. How cool is that? To say Kristeen went above and beyond is an understatement. She will definitely make your wedding planning a lot easier.Sent on 08/14/2011

I really have no idea where to begin on this review. I guess I should say Thank You to Kristeen for everything she did for Joe and I's wedding. She went beyond the call of duty for us. You can really tell she LOVES what she does. She came to our rescue on our original venue and found us the beautiful Marrakesh House. If we needed vendor referrals, we looked towards Kristeen because she works with some of the best people out there who won't nickel and dime you. She responded to every email and call within moments. Day of the wedding, my husband and I had nothing to worry about. We knew everything was safe in her hands and if something went slightly awry she would rectify without us even knowing something was wrong.Sent on 06/14/2011

Kristeen was absolutely buttoned up, calm, and in control of our wedding and management of the various vendors and venues we put under her purview. She handled any issues in a quick, direct, and friendly manner, and was able to predict our needs before we even knew we needed something (she handed me my bouquet just before the photographer came over to take some candid shots so the photos came out perfect). I highly recommend her and can't wait to see her again. Thank you Kristeen!Sent on 06/26/2011
