Testimonials:

In 4 words – Above and beyond expectations! Kelley was honestly the BEST decision we made for our wedding! We hired Kelley as our day-of event coordinator. She went far above and beyond our expectations with several prep calls starting about a month out from the wedding and providing a GoogleDoc with the most amazing schedule and attention to detail. She was on-site beginning the day before the wedding to assist with setup, run through the schedule and lead the rehearsal. She and her husband were both on-site throughout the wedding day and were soooo on top of EVERYTHING! My in-laws have continued to compliment them after the wedding on how well they anticipated every little detail! They also went above and beyond with the post-wedding breakdown, which made my and my husband’s day so much easier the day after the wedding! I cannot thank Kelley enough! Don’t look anywhere else for your coordinator needs!

Kendall + Chris, September 2019 – Month of Coordinator

Kelley was the second vendor we selected and the only thing we would do differently is that she wasn’t our first! I could go on and on about how supportive, clear, professional, forthcoming, timely, creative and attentive she was – but there is only so much space and what I can say really struck my husband and I with her is that she is REAL! Upon our search for planners we dealt with some serious egos along the way (as well as RIDICULOUS price tags – not the case with Kelley but I can tell you she is worth A TON) – when we met Kelley we knew she would not only be our planner but our friend. She orchestrated the most perfect wedding for us and made our dreams come true. We will truly miss talking to her – and as I bride I can tell you – you can talk to her at ANY time and she will 100% ease your worries. BEST DECISION EVER!!!!! 

Morgan + Ryan, June 2019 – Full Wedding Plan

When we started planning our DYI at-home wedding, we thought that we would be able to tackle everything. We were wrong. In stepped Kelley! From the moment she first met with us, she calmed our nerves, reassured us on our vision, and helped realize everything that we wanted to come to life. When the weekend finally came, she lived up to everything we had hoped for. She not only kept us sane, but kept our extended family in line, dealt with all of our vendors, made sure that every tiny task was executed with care and beauty, and made the extra effort to ensure that we were taken care of and able to enjoy ourselves. Kelley’s intangible skills made everything feel manageable. Anybody would be lucky to have Kelley plan/execute their special day!
