Latasha is amazing
LaTasha was the backbone of my mother's wedding!! My sister and I were not able to help with much outside of the wedding weekend, but LaTasha was there for our mother making sure everything was in place the way she wanted it with minimal stress. She is incredibly organized and prepared for anything. We had a smaller wedding with a lot of the setup being done by family, and the take-down was really just LaTasha, my sister, and I. LaTasha knew exactly where everything needed to be, where things could be stored/out of the way, and how to pack it up in the end without needing to question my mom on her special day. LaTasha is awesome and clearly works hard to make things run smoothly! Incredibly deserving of her 5 star rating!!Sent on 09/27/2020

She's a magician!
LaTasha was amazing. she was always several steps ahead and was able to coordinate many details to avoid disaster. My dad was one of my groomsmen and somehow the suit shop didn't give him a vest, he was the only one without a vest. LaTasha somehow magically got a vest in time for the wedding. LaTasha never stops, she works so hard to make the day go well and she listens to her clients. LaTasha was everywhere, it felt like she was able to be in 3 places at once. You can't go wrong with hiring her. She is very personable and really cares about your day. I was skeptical in the beginning when my wife wanted to hire a day of coordinator, but I am glad we did because if we didn't we would have been stressed out and running around chasing our tails. You'll be glad to have to opportunity to work with LaTasha, her work ethic alone is unmatched.Sent on 10/26/2020

The Best in the Biz
Incredible. LaTasha was exactly who I needed during wedding planning and getting myself, and everything else organized for our August wedding. She took the stress of contacting vendors and other duties off me so I could focus on my day. LaTasha ran the entire show and I don't think I could have had a successfully smooth wedding without her. I'm not kidding when I say, I don't think there's anything she can't do. The day of our wedding I went to the farmers market to purchase flowers for our wedding, while I was getting ready, LaTasha in the midst of setting everything up and organizing everyone, put together my bouquet and all my bridesmaids' bouquets. They were so beautiful! Throughout our day, she brought my husband and I water (and our photographer) to make sure we were hydrated. She made sure we had everything we needed ALWAYS, and she even took my phone and recorded my MOH/ BM speeches and snapped some photos that I will cherish forever. COVID stressed me out and LaTasha took all that stress away in everything she did. I cannot recommend her enough. Anytime I had a question or needed something, she never hesitated to figure it out and find a solution. On top of her being the bad*** she is, she is the sweetest, most caring person I had the pleasure of working with for our wedding. Thank you so much for everything you did for us LaTasha. You are THE best in the entire business.Sent on 09/07/2020

LaTasha is the best!
LaTasha was amazing. She got me through the pandemic wedding planning with 2 dates and a venue change. Everything was perfect, largely due to her attention to detail. Yes, you do need a wedding planner. LaTasha is the best! That is her fluffing my dress before I walk down, in the pic.Sent on 09/12/2020

Helped create our PERFECT wedding!
When I was first engaged, I started asking other married couples what advice they had for my wedding. I’ve had several people say they wish they hired a day of coordinator. That was probably the best advice I was given! LaTasha was on top of it ALL! I’ve been to weddings where it’s been really hectic without a coordinator. I’ve also been to some that even had an event coordinator, but when an issue popped up with the DJ, the groom had to handle it. The venue coordinator only dealt with venue specific problems – everything else was the bridal party’s problem.Sent on 11/20/2019
Our wedding was very DIY, and it wouldn’t have gone as smooth as it did if LaTasha hadn’t been there. Wedding brain is so real – my husband and I would forget about the most random things. But LaTasha was like a super hero with a utility belt for whatever issues arose. I don’t think there were any issues, and if there were we didn’t know! Our venue required a flip, and with the assistance of the caterers, she set up the room so beautifully. I dreamed about my wedding day for so long, but coming down and seeing how beautifully the reception was set up, I was just amazed! I couldn’t believe I was at my own wedding because everything looked so great and fancy.
She was on top of every vendor, from when I panicked super early in the morning because the make-up artists hadn’t arrived, to the end with organizing our send off and getting our limo ready for us. She even snuck off for a bit to our hotel room and decorated it for our first night.
My wedding party has been raving about LaTasha, even after the wedding was over. They noticed how on top of everything she was and how they didn’t have to lift a finger. My mom thought she was going to be so stressed with MOB duties, but she didn’t have much to do except be my mom and enjoy the evening, thanks to LaTasha!
LaTasha was probably our best investment, and very affordable for what she did. She’s a day of coordinator, but she helped us with so many things before the wedding day. She recommended great vendors, helped us figure out the day of schedule, planning and so much more. Getting LaTasha to help with our wedding was second best decision of the day (next to saying I Do to my groom). She is my top vendor recommendation, for without her, nothing would have gone as planned. Hire her NOW!

Experienced, Hard-working, Trustworthy!
LaTasha set me at ease leading up to the wedding day by taking care of concerns that came up with vendors. She stepped in and took my vision and made it a reality with the venue. I was blown away when I arrived! Not to mention everything she did during the ceremony and reception so they would go off without a hitch. LaTasha is a hard worker and a good person who genuinely wants your day to be perfect.Sent on 09/15/2019

One in a Million
LaTasha was the best we could have asked for. It was a worry-free day for sure! She handed my husband and I drinks the whole night so we never left the dance floor. She scooped up my dinner for me so I wouldn't get anything on my dress. It was the little details she did throughout the day and evening that were just amazing and we literally couldn't have done this without her. She's an 11/10 and highly recommend her for every wedding!Sent on 07/08/2019

I cannot tell you all how wonderful LaTasha is! She was beyond anything I could have expected and knew more about weddings than I could ever hope to know! During our initial phone call, I could tell how experienced she was, but she was also easy to talk to. LaTasha was very responsive to any and all emails, even months before the wedding (I hired her as a day of coordinator, not a full wedding planner). Even though it was months before hand, she was able to give me suggestions about hotel blocks and shuttle services. Our next phone call was very long, but went through every wedding detail possible: things I never would have thought of, such as if my bridesmaids were allergic to any of the flowers in the bouquets! She also sent me Google sheets to complete, to make sure she had recorded everything we discussed, and so I could enter information I didn't know yet at my leisure. LaTasha is extremely organized, and it shows! At the rehearsal she was patient and fun in explaining what everyone was expected to do and when. Then the day of the wedding I was blown away by her service! She traveled through ten inches of snow on our wedding day to Powell Gardens. She had scissors when I needed, put my veil in the right spot, helped with all the buttons on my gown. She brought us appetizers after the ceremony to make sure we ate and walked me through the buffet line. She cleaned spots off my dress, put my garter on at the reception, brought me drinks when I needed, and captured every important moment on my personal phone. Everyone in my wedding party and immediate family commented on how wonderful LaTasha was. My parents even said they would hire her if they ever decided to renew their vows! I truly cannot say enough positive feedback about LaTasha. Any bride would be lucky to have her to ensure a flawless day.Sent on 01/23/2019

A huge reason our wedding was such a perfect, successful day is because of her. Seriously every wedding needs LaTasha from The Veil KC. Our wedding party, parents, and even guests commented on her hard work and efforts throughout the day & night. I can’t give enough praise!!! Everything went so smoothly because she helped us execute every detail. My husband, our parents, and I were able to have a perfect, wonderful, carefree day because she was there!!! She puts so much thought and care into everything she does!!!!Sent on 05/17/2018

No words can express the amazing-ness
I'd give Latasha all the stars possible. She's absolutely fantastic. Any wedding questions I had she was able to answer and she did so quickly. Anything advice I needed or or recommendations she had covered. My rehearsal went without a hitch because she was there to keep us on track. The wedding day was amazing all because she's so good at our job. At the end of the reception a guest spilled red wine in the back of my dress, I was so sad! However, Latasha had it cleaned out within 5 minutes....she's magic. She makes you feel so comfortable, she's personable and relatable. There's no better person out there!Sent on 10/29/2018

Perfect, couldn’t have asked for more
LaTasha is hands down the best at what she does. We couldn’t thank her enough for the hard work she put in to make sure our wedding had minimal bumps. Especially after the Tuxedo incident that she handled like a pro to ensure we actually got them.. She seemed to have everything covered all the way down to the smallest details. We highly recommend her. Puntcual, detailed oriented, and great at communication!Sent on 10/29/2018
Nat · Married on 07/21/2018
Latasha was great to work with! We were living about 3 hours away from KC for almost all of our wedding planning, so I knew that I was going to need some extra help! Latasha was the answer! It was like talking to a long lost friend on the phone. (We met the day of our rehearsal dinner.) She worked tireless to make our wedding great! She came up with inventive ideas about where stuff should go and took charge of our day! I really can't say enough good things about her! I have no idea if anything went wrong because she was constantly handling it! Simply Amazing and very affordable!Sent on 10/21/2018

Latasha did a wonderful job helping us prepare for our wedding and making the wedding day go smoothly! She helped keep everyone on time and had a solution for any little problem that occurred.

My name is Krissy Power and I am the Event Sales Coordinator at Tiffany Greens Golf Club. I had the pleasure of working alongside Latasha this weekend at a wedding held at our clubhouse. Not only was Latasha organized and on the ball at all times, but she was calm, cool, and collected, and was able to diffuse any and all mini crises that would naturally occur on your wedding day. She had a resolution to everything, and it is an understatement to say that she totally impressed me this weekend. Do yourself a favor and hire Latasha. You will not regret it!!!!! :)Sent on 02/08/2017

My daughter got married on July 30, 2017. I have already had 2 weddings for my older 2 children so this was #3. 3rd time's a charm? No way. I have experienced planning and prepping weddings before, but without LaTasha. This time was different (and yes better!) because LaTasha made all the difference in my daughter's special day running smoothly and perfectly. The guests had fun and my husband and I enjoyed every single second. We didn't worry or wonder about anything as we had complete confidence that LaTasha had it covered. At the end of this special day my husband said "LaTasha was the best investment." Above everything else, LaTasha made sure my family was well cared for so we could fully enjoy the sweet celebration. One of the guests said the day was like a fairy tale and she didn't want to leave. It really was the sweetest of celebrations thanks to LaTasha planning for details that took the day to a new level. I have only one unmarried child now. LaTasha will most definitely be involved in wedding #4.Sent on 08/23/2017

Latasha was excellent! I can't imagine what this process of weddding planning would have looked like had we not had her. She was always 2 steps ahead and extremely organized. She kept us on track and handled much of the leg work making things so much less stressfull than it could have been. We had 6 months to plan 300 guest wedding and with her help it was a huge success!Sent on 07/16/2017

I cannot even begin to express my gratitude to LaTasha. She did a phenomenal job so that I could simply relax and enjoy my evening with my husband and all of our friends and family! She did all of the set up and take down all while still making sure everyone was where they needed to be when they needed to be there without missing a beat. If someone had a problem she had a solution without hesitation. She was prepared for anything thrown at her. I simply just got to be a bride and enjoy my special day. If you are looking for a DOC, LaTasha is definitely the girl for the job! ❤️Sent on 07/02/2017

I was a bridesmaid in a dear friend's wedding this weekend and LaTasha was her coordinator. I have been in many weddings, but never one that has gone so smoothly. LaTasha is prepared for all things and didn't bat an eye no matter what request/issue was thrown her way. Our bride never batted an eye nor lifted a finger. LaTasha had everything under control. Even as a bridesmaid I was able to sit and relax with our bride, instead of putting out fires. LaTasha communicated with the wedding party with grace and elegance, but was very clear and concise. She was respectful, calm and in control of everything the entire time. Throughout the evening, LaTasha helped manage the party, while also cleaning up. She was so on top of things, we hardly noticed how much she was doing! Incredibly organized and professional, and yet totally willing to pause and dance for a minute when the dance floor was empty to help get the party moving again! A wonderful planner/organizer/comrade for any bride and bridal party! I can't recommend her enough!Sent on 06/05/2017

OMG! If i could give 100 stars I would! A bride like myself, I would have to say has got to be the hardest to deal with. Not because I'm picky or demanding, but because I don't know what I want. lol Latasha helped me with every choice and calmed me down when I saw no end in sight. On top of all that, this woman helped me throw a wedding together in 10 WEEKS! Yes, weeks. She was amazing to say the least, there's no way I could have fully enjoyed and appreciated the wedding if I didn't have her! THANK YOU LATASHA, I hope every bride has someone like you on their side on their day <3 <3 <3Sent on 03/07/2017

ANYONE LOOKING FOR AN EVENT PLANNER LISTEN UP:Sent on 01/04/2017
Where do I begin this woman is a gift from the gods!!! I hired LaTasha Roberts James for my wedding on 12/17/16 and little did we know what we were in store for with the inclement weather. LaTasha was perfect in managing my emotions and making sure I did not stress about anything or any little detail that may have been forgotten. She was my brain for the day and thought of any and everything that I may have forgotten. She was worth every penny. She stepped in when my dress hook snapped, from stepping in as my officiant, to making sure all my expectations were met. I could not have made a better choice for my event planner. Not to mention I hired her for the rehearsal dinner and she went above and beyond that night just to make sure my family was having a good time and their needs were met. She made Josh and me truly ecstatic, because nothing is more critical then knowing you entrusted the right person with coordinating for your big event. THANKS A LOT LaTasha Roberts James

LaTasha was more than I could ever ask for! She's is worth her weight in gold! My wedding was everything I dreamed of and I know if she hadn't have been there things would not have been so smooth. I didn't have to worry about a thing! Her execution of my big day was flawless. If anything went wrong, I didn't know about it. She took care of even the smallest detail. She was so encouraging and on top of everything that I felt more at ease. I thank her from the bottom of my heart and recommend her to any and everyone! I initial didn't think I need a coordinator but I'd have been lost without her! Booking LaTasha is a no brainer and worth more than she knows.Sent on 10/31/2016

There is no way our wedding would have come together without her! Thanks Latasha you’re the best!Sent on 10/31/2018
Faith · Married on 09/10/2016
I remember convincing my then-fiancé that we needed to hire LaTasha. I explained it as purchasing insurance that everything would go smoothly. Oh my, did she far surpass our expectations!! She is SO much more than a Day of Coordinator! With the multiple “checklist” phone calls and confirming with all of my vendors, we were already happy with our decision to hire her. Little did we know that was only the beginning... LaTasha “surprised” me at the hair salon to let me know that my hired photographer was a no-show, but there was another photographer outside and PayPal on the phone to get a full refund. I didn’t even have a chance to fret about it. She handled everything with poise and amazing professionalism. I seriously have no idea what I would’ve done without her. If you are on the fence about a DOC, contact The Veil KC! I promise that you will not regret it! You can’t afford NOT to have LaTasha!Sent on 10/31/2016
