Kate went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect. Leading up to the wedding she always made herself available to talk every time we were worried about something and we always hung up the phone feeling reassured. When the actual weekend came, she ran the show so perfectly, working so well with all of the different vendors and coordinating a hundred different things so that we could relax and enjoy ourselves. She was truly fantastic.

I can't say enough amazing things about Kate. She was beyond worth what we paid to book her. Our wedding day was no easy feat for a wedding planner - we had torrential rain and a lightning storm at the moment our outdoor ceremony was to take place. Not only that, but the power for the entire venue went out. Kate immediately got us a generator, was on the phone with local authorities making sure we'd get power back, and our event went off without a hitch, thanks to her. Did I mention she used her own body to block the rain from ruining or escort cards?! She is also so fun and upbeat, just a pleasure to work with. Highly, highly recommend. She truly knows what she is doing.

I can't say enough good things about Kate! "Ask Kate" became a mantra in our family in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and she did not disappoint. Helping us find an amazing florist, great rehearsal dinner caterers and a million other things. Kate helped set up everything for the wedding and handled the many, many questions from many challenging parties with aplomb. In the months leading up to the wedding Kate was sometimes a bit slow to respond, but as we got closer she was always on top of it. We were all amazed how much attention Kate was able to devote to us when she had so many clients.

Kate Is the BEST!! She is the best thing we spent money on for our wedding. And is also very reasonable. She took care of everything the day of the wedding and took it upon herself to reach out to all of my other vendors in the weeks prior. Even if you think you don't need a day of coordinator, you do! Who wants to be bothered on the best day of their lives with issues? Kate took control of everything!

I was married at the Kaaterskill 2 months ago. I was on a budget and was initially not going to hire a day-of coordinator. I changed my mind and chose A Charmed Affair and it was the best decision I made for my wedding.

I worked with Kate, who is absolutely amazing! She responded promptly to all my questions and concerns. My bridal party, family and friends all loved her! She is friendly, upbeat, professional and assertive, which is something every bride needs in a day of wedding coordinator. When one of my vendors was late, she took care of it. I felt that there was so much to do and lots of prep work needed for my wedding but Kate reassured me she was there to help. All elements worked out as I envisioned it or better. I truly enjoyed my wedding day thanks to her and her team.

I should have called Kate in the beginning but I thought a wedding planner was way too expensive. I was so wrong. I called her frantic just days before my wedding and she literally stepped in, organized everything requiring last minute and coordinated the entire bridal party and rehearsal. A bride has no idea how much detail is required. We had around 140 guests and 11 people in the bridal party. Kate was perfect, my husband and I were completely impressed!! If you are considering a planner, just call her.

Kate Arel has been my rock for the last year - whether she realized it or not! When I first reached out to Kate to discuss being my "Day-Of Coordinator" I thought she would be just that - maybe talk some logistics a few weeks before the shin dig and then she would show up and just make sure things went smoothly. Well she did all that and more! As organized as I claim to be, I knew having someone available to coordinate amongst other vendors the day of the wedding would be instrumental in keeping me, my mother, and my MOH sane. Kate was with me almost every step of they way to help me make sure I had thought of every aspect and took the time to reach out to all of my vendors beforehand. She even MC'd the wedding party entrance! Kate - you went above and beyond and we can't thank you enough!

Kate with A Charmed Affair was fabulous. She was very detail oriented, and helped us every single step of the way. Honestly Kate made our wedding a memorable/wonderful experience! I would highly recommend Kate to anyone who is thinking of having a wedding, party or business event!!! She is honestly the most professional person I have met in this "wedding business". Kate is extremely organized, detail oriented and hard working. Kate always listened to what we wanted and what we envisioned our day to be.. I could honestly go on and on after how great our wedding was all because of Kate!

Hire Kate! She was my weekend coordinator for my wedding at the Kaaterskill in June 2014. Even though she'd spent half the previous week in the hospital with a horrible spider bite (!!!) she was at every minute of the wedding weekend, taking care of a million details behind the scenes. She has a great sense of humor, an extensive knowledge of the area and local vendors and was just a great person to pair with on this once-in-a-lifetime event. She's exactly the person you want there when the craziness kicks into high gear!
