I can't say enough wonderful things about Kala and her team. I can genuinely say we didn't experience any stress in the months, weeks, and days leading up to our wedding because Kala had made things so easy and FUN. Our wedding was gorgeous- beyond what I could have imagined! The flowers were phenomenal and she really took our vision and turned it into a reality. The whole wedding ran smooth and on time. But the biggest compliment I can give Kala is that we felt that her sincere priority was our happiness at our wedding. We were fed (we actually got FULL at our wedding!), always had drinks in our hands, and Kala was always asking if we needed anything else. I really can't recommend her enough!

I will start by saying I don't think I can write a review to brag enough or show just how grateful I am for MOD Events! I can not say enough about Kala and Kara, not only as wedding planners, but as genuinely wonderful people! They are the absolute BEST!
From the first phone conversation with Kala, I felt like we had known each other forever! She was so responsive to emails, texts and phone calls.. no matter how often I bugged her! She saw my vision perfectly, and made every small detail exactly how I dreamed it would be.
The day of and days up to our wedding, my bridesmaids kept on saying they couldn't believe how calm I was. I even expected to be super stressed about having everything perfect that day, but with Kara there I felt super at ease and knew everything was going to be flawless! MOD Events also did my flowers.. they were absolutely ideal! From my bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets, to ceremony and reception flowers... I could not have imagined them fitting our wedding so perfectly.
My wedding day could not have been any more perfect, and a HUGE part of that is due to Kala and Kara! Having them there through out the whole planning process will be the best decision you make!

You need to choose MOD events! Kala at MOD events was the best thing we ever chose for our wedding. Kala is absolutely incredible! She is extremely responsive, knowledgeable with the vendors, and has a phenomenal eye when it comes to décor/suggestions to make your wedding look beautiful. Most of all she is beyond dedicated to your wedding to make sure it is exactly what you want, and to make you feel like you are the only focus in the world. She always made sure we were stress free and everything was taken care of every step of the way. Her referrals for vendors were also top notch, and helped make our wedding perfect all around! I get overwhelmed easy, and I can honestly say there was not one point I felt overwhelmed with the planning process- Kala steps in and makes sure everything is taken care of for you. I also chose to do flowers in house through Kala- they were absolutely stunning. I think beyond everything else she is an incredible person to be around... I cannot say better things about a person or company! When I say Mod Events was the best choice we made for our wedding, I can't say it enough!!

Kala and MOD Events seamlessly threw an amazing wedding. She took care of every detail and made the planning process so much easier. The decorations were gorgeous. She helped us along the whole way with helping us pick vendors, make tough decisions, and eased our anxiety when we got anxious about a certain aspect of planning. We can’t thank MOD events enough for making our wedding day unforgettable and the most special day possible.
Kimberly · Married on 10/21/2017
Kala is exceptional! She is professional, kind, sweet, helpful, determined, driven and goes above and beyond to make your wedding day extra special! She is there to make sure you are taken care of, stress-free and get what you want! I couldn't have made this day happen without Kala and Kara. MOD events was a necessity and we are so happy we chose them! Kala took the time to meet with me as much as I needed to make sure everything was right & truly listened to my vision/needs/wants. I am so grateful for her! We love Kala & MOD events!! Exceptional service and highly recommended! She is also very great with guests, family members & vendors....everyone loves Kala!!

We loved Kala so much! I was a very alternative bride and she created a plan for us that blended our unique style as a couple and also kept with tradition. On wedding day she kept all 20 of our wedding party in line and made sure the day went seamlessly. I loved working with her and she is just a genuinely lovely person to be around. Highly, highly recommend her! We know so many couples that didn’t like their wedding planners and I can not imagine how the day would have gone without Kala’s help. It’s SO important to trust your plan and Kala is just perfect. She also did our flowers and decor and everything looked stunning on the day of.
Allison · Married on 09/22/2017
I cannot express enough how wonderful MOD Events is! Kala and her team are miracle workers and our wedding was perfect in every way. Kala handled all of our flowers, centerpieces, decor, coordination, and more details than I probably even know about - everything was perfect and exactly what we had in mind. We never could have pulled off our wedding without her and would hire MOD again a million times over!!! THANK YOU!
Janet · Married on 07/22/2017
I don't think my wedding day would have gone as well without Kala. From the first phone call to the sendoff on our wedding day Kala was fantastic throughout my whole wedding planning process! She is so accommodating, she took my visions and made them a reality. She helped me pick my vendors, who were all great! She even handled contracts and my last minute changes with vendors in the last few weeks heading up to the wedding day, which is a huge relief for a bride :)! Not only did she help with my planning and organization but she did my flowers as well. I couldn't believe how beautiful the flowers came out either, they were talked about all night!
Our wedding day was amazing and I owe it all to her hard work. I was amazed by her and her team during the actual wedding as well. They made sure we were comfortable, happy, fed and a drink in our hand. My family and friends are still talking about how great she was.
She's such a sweet heart and you will not be disappointed if you hire her. I would highly recommend her for your special day!
Rob · Married on 06/03/2017
Kala did an exceptional job planning our wedding. My wife was at ease because of how experienced Kala and her team were. We were able to enjoy planning our wedding and more importantly, our friends, family and each other on our wedding day. Thanks Kala!
Zan · Married on 04/15/2017
Kala was absolutely amazing. I've known Kala for about 15 years and we have a friendly banter kind of relationship. And if Kala wasn't amazing at her job I would never do this... and I always worry about hiring a friend, but WOW! I can't even try and find something wrong. Every little detail was gone over without it seeming tedious. I forgot my cake knife and she had hers on standby. She also made sure I had champagne or water in my hand at all times. She kept the day going and on track as nothing was forgotten. She also pulled my husband and myself away to get a bite to eat and be alone for a few minutes. After the wedding she helped pack the cars and when I called her asking for things I forgot to tell her she already took care of it. She also tucked our wedding license in my car above the visor.
The best part is I had a bouquet made for one of my best friends that passed away about 6 years ago and forgot to ask her to save it for me. When I asked her about it 3 days later she said that she had pulled a rose out of it and was drying it out/pressing it and was going to surprise me with it (but I ruined that surprise) but that's what makes Kala so great. It's the little things, no detail is overlooked. She thinks of everything without even being asked. Seriously you will not regret picking MOD events to do your wedding.
It was also nice when we got to the hotel suite after going out with friends that there was a bag of leftovers waiting for us. Thank you again, Kala, you made the day perfect!

We cannot express enough gratitude for MOD Events. Their abilities seem limitless, and their reputation is well-deserved. MOD Events provided planning and event coordination services for our wedding in November 2016. Our day was beyond awesome and MOD Events was one of the biggest reasons. Kala is a VERY talented and dedicated individual heading up a capable team. She was flexible meeting in advance, listened closely, and lent us invaluable advice along the way. We were guided through difficult choices, kept on schedule and within budget. Between Kala's relationships within the industry and keen eye for aesthetics (our venue details and decor were STUNNING thanks to her), we were so fortunate to have her help.
On the day of, MOD Events' staff worked tirelessly. We had a considerable snafu beyond our control on wedding weekend - we were bailed out big time by Kala! MOD Events' personal guidance and consummate professionalism were only a few things we noticed that day (nevermind everything which went unseen!). Our guests had a blast and haven't stopped raving about the fun that day! We are forever thankful and enthusiastically encourage others to enlist the services of MOD Events! Thanks, Kala!

Kala was our coordinator for the rehearsal dinner. It was a destination wedding for 150 people. She was the perfect individual to use! She was the planner for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding...what a spectacular weekend!
Deborah · Married on 06/17/2016
Kala was our coordinator for my son's rehearsal dinner which included 230 guests. We had planned it for over a year to have it at the Citadel Beach Club until it burned a month before the dinner. She jumped into action and found us another venue that would hold that number of people on the water - Charleston Yacht Club. She kept us organized and calm throughout the entire planning and event. We live in Atlanta so we were doing this long distance. She was in constant contact. She is the nicest, more organized and efficient coordinator that I have ever worked with. The decorations, flowers, rentals, music, food and everything other detail was handled perfectly. I would highly recommend her for any event. She is amazing!

Best planner ever! We were reluctant to hire a planner on our budget but I knew we needed the help. Kala and her team not only saved me a ton of money but made the day perfect! I have no idea what I would have done without them! We were able to utilize a ton of MOD's décor and they made all of our flowers. My bouquets were even better than I imagined. I can't say enough about how important hiring a pro really is. This was by far the best $$$ I spent.
Abigail · Married on 10/24/2015
Loved Kala and Kara w/ MOD Events! Without even having to finish a sentence they understood me. My wedding day was flawless and perfect - I owe it all to them! Thanks again ladies, much love!!!

Hiring Kala was the hands-down best decision I made in planning my wedding! At first I struggled with the idea of paying for a coordinator. As a DIY bride on a budget, I had a hard time justifying the expense. As an OCD control-freak, I wondered if I would even utilize a planner. However, now I can't imagine how my wedding would have ever come together without her help.
I researched dozens of planners and met with my top 3. From the moment I met Kala I knew I'd found the one. Her help throughout the planning phase was invaluable. She kept me grounded when I started to "over-do" things, she calmed me down when I started to panic, and throughout the entire process she felt like a friend while remaining fully professional. I can't say enough good things about Kala!
With the amount of time, planning, and organization I put into the wedding I feared that I'd continue to want to micro-manage every detail, even on the wedding day. However, the confidence that I'd established in Kala allowed me to tune everything out and focus on getting ready and spending time with my bridesmaids. I would have never experienced that level of calm if I hadn't left things in Kala's hands.
The wedding went off perfectly. The set-up of the ceremony and reception spaces was flawless. She worked magic with my DIY wedding decor and added her own touches that I would have never thought of. I received so many compliments from guests saying that mine was the most well-timed and seamlessly orchestrated wedding they'd ever attended. All of this praise goes to Kala and her team.
In the end, I have to say that the money I spent on MOD Events was the best money I spent on our wedding. I would recommend MOD to anyone and would like to tell anyone reading this review that hiring Kala will be the one wedding decision you will never second guess!

We would 100% recommend Kala Turpin and her team. We had a beach ceremony at The Tides in Folly Beach followed by a reception inside. Kala was pivotal in getting the right look. We've seen some concerns about her responsiveness to emails and what not, but we can guarantee you she will get the job done. What do you expect from a top wedding planner in the area? She's obviously busy with weddings!
Kala helped with everything and has a trusted group of vendors that we used as well (photographers, DJs, hair & makeup artists, cake designers, etc.). Having a trusted coordinator saves you a ton of time doing your own due diligence on possible vendors. Kala also helped with the layout of the ceremony and reception.
Having said all that, the NUMBER 1 reason Kala and team earned their fee is they DID EVERYTHING, setting up and breaking down the whole wedding. As stressful as weddings can be, the last thing you need is to worry about setting up before and cleaning after. We simply gave Kala the keys to our cars and room. They took everything out and set up a beautiful wedding with little-to-no directions other than what was written on the box. After the long night, we returned to our room to find all our gifts and cake and cupcakes safe in our room. In the morning, we went down to the car and found everything packed, even the bridesmaids' bouquets that they somehow lost throughout the night (hmmm...alcohol???).
On top of the very important aspects, Kala was super accommodating, bringing us food before and after our portrait shoot and having our sweetheart table fully loaded with all the goodies from the dinner and appetizer spread. We can truly say that Kala became our friend, not only our wedding coordinator. We are sure to continue a great relationship with her and next time we are out in the Charleston area we will definitely get together for drinks.
Kala and team, thank you for an unforgettable wedding.

Kala is amazing. She is very easy to work with. She is able to work within a budget. She finds many savings along the way. I actually think I would have spent way more on a wedding, had it not been for Kala and her connections. The Day Of she is amazing. She always has a plan. She also coordinated our rehearsal dinner with my Mother in Law and did amazing. Her flowers are fantastic. Love, love, love her. Wish I could get married again to use her again!
Morgan · Married on 07/18/2015
As a destination bride it can be overwhelming feeling to plan a wedding from 6 hours away, so trusting my wedding planner was a huge deal for me. I immediately felt at ease with Kala, she got my vision instantly, and was professional without being stiff. She has handled everything for us, and is even doing all of the floral for our wedding. If we were ever uncomfortable with a quoted price, she wouldn't stop until she found a vendor that fit into our budget. Everyone in our families who have met her, have loved her, and my fiance and I consider her a friend who just happens to be our wedding planner.
Jen · Married on 06/20/2015
MOD Events, particularly Kala, did an absolutely wonderful job working with us on our special day! We certainly could not have asked for a better wedding planner. Kala went out of her way to speak with us when we needed advice or just to answer questions and responded very promptly to our emails. Kala also offered suggestions as far as décor for our wedding day that we had not thought of before. She even offered to let us use some of her own items for our wedding day, which was extremely helpful. It’s really nice to have someone so enthusiastic working with you on your special day and Kala definitely filled that role. MOD Events did all of our flowers, and on the day of, everything was exactly as I had imagined. I absolutely loved the bridal bouquets and floral centerpieces! With MOD Events help, our wedding day went as smoothly as possible and we were able to sit back and enjoy our big day knowing that everything was taken care of. Overall, Kala did an absolutely amazing job and went above and beyond of what was expected as our day-of-coordinator. Our wedding was everything we could have ever imagined and so much more, all thanks to the expertise, hard work, and attention to detail of Kala. I highly recommend MOD Events for your special day!
Katharine · Married on 05/23/2015
We honestly could not have pulled off our wedding without Kala. When we were in the early stages of wedding planning, we had no intention of hiring a wedding planner or coordinator. We toured our venue (Magnolia Plantation) right after we booked it and met Kala while she was setting up for another wedding. We were so impressed that we ended up hiring her for our wedding a year later, and hate to think about what a mess our big day would have been without her! Some of our parents were skeptical about the need for a coordinator early on, saying we didn't need one, but after the wedding even they were wondering what we would have done without MOD Events. Kala took our vision and executed it to a T. She decorated our venue exactly how we wanted and created ALL of our floral arrangements and bouquets. Not to mention she was awesome to hang out with during the planning! Thank you Kala (and Kara of course)!
Christina · Married on 03/14/2015
I just can't say enough about Kala and her staff. As a business owner, planning my wedding was just another set of "to-do's" on a never ending list. Kala not only offered me the help that I needed with all of my planning, but more importantly she offered solutions. Solutions for my budget, for my indecisive moments, and for my sanity! She made me EXCITED about my wedding! I told her what I liked (which was pretty vague) and she offered me a vision that I would't have been able to come up with by myself. More importantly, she executed all of it beautifully. Above all, she was so fun to work with. I was able to be 100% myself, and when you are a bride, that is so important! She went so far beyond my expectations for my wedding. As a hair salon owner I have heard some pretty scary stories about planners...not coming through, not being flexible, or be unresponsive after a contract is signed. I can't imagine an experience like that. I will refer MOD Events to all of my clients, friends and family. In my opinion, a referral is just as important to the client as it is to the vendor. I know that everyone I send to Kala will be so happy they chose her.

Kala was amazing from the first time we communicated via email all the way through the final details of the wedding. As an out of town bride, Kala made the process so much easier and alleviated the stress that comes with planning a wedding from 500 miles away. Kala also handled all of the flowers for our wedding and everything was gorgeous, exactly as I imagined! She is very budget conscious and gave us a beautiful day without breaking the bank! She was such a pleasure to work with and I am grateful we had such a wonderful experience for our special day.
