Kathi and her team were truly a pleasure to work with. The whole planning process was so much more manageable with Kathi's help. From the first day I contacted her when I was looking for a wedding planner she was quick to respond and very flexible. As an out-of-state couple, this was such a bonus!

The week leading up to the wedding all of our last minute questions or concerns were never an issue. Whether it was picking up sandwiches or payment information, Kathi made herself available by phone at any time. It was such a relief to have her to rely on. She really helped take off some last minute wedding stress and helped us through all of our concerns.

The day of the wedding Kathi and her team were at the reception venue before we were. They were there setting up and making the venue even more beautiful than it already was! Kathi hand-folded all of the napkins gorgeously around each of our menus which must have taken forever! Also, her and her team set up all of my DIY projects on the tables so elegantly. I was terrified that my projects might look too cheap being handmade, but they knew exactly how to set everything up so that it all tied together perfectly! I do not think we could have done that on our own! Without Kathi's help I do not believe our wedding would have turned out as perfectly as it did.

My husband and I would recommend Kathi to anyone! They were such a big part of our day even though no one but us saw any of them. They are really a special group of people and we are sincerely thankful for everything they did to help make our day even more special. Thank you Kathi!!

We had the pleasure of working with Kathi, which we loved! But it came out of a stressful situtation with our venue. Kathi was a great person to lean on, and helped us through it like the pro she is. In fact, I was so relaxed on our wedding day that people kept asking if I was okay! :-) Typically pretty type-a, I felt like I had fully handed over the details to Kathi and her girls and wasn't worried about a thing. I knew they would handle everything that came their way, and they certainly did. Everyone she brings is sweet, calm and professional. They had everything we could have needed and were prepared for every situation. And they were just plain nice to be around. It ended up being a perfect day, and I know that's because they managed all the behind the scene details that no bride or family member should have to worry about for us! They even went the extra mile and cleaned everything up, by putting everything in our car so we only had to grab the car the next day. Wonderful people!

My husband (Chris) and I were so excited to get married; we truly had the best day of our lives. However, I am not sure we would have been able to enjoy the day as much as we did if it were not for all the support/help we received from Kathi Evan’s and her team at All the Best Weddings, Celebrations & Events – planning company.

Planning a wedding is a bride’s dream, from picking the place, trying the food & cake, to choosing the most perfect dress for your very special day. Even with all the excitement and thrill of marriage, the planning process can be overwhelming that you may need someone to help you with all the many details. But how do you pick someone you can trust to guide you through this process from the beginning planning stages to the day you are pronounced Husband and Wife – that’s easy, it’s All the Best! You will look back and know you made the best choice in making your very special day go as smooth and be as beautiful as you had always dreamed.

I joined two families on my wedding day, my husband’s and the All the Best family. Chris and I could not be more thankful for Kathi and her team for making our day unforgettable and perfect.

Not many people are as lucky as my husband and I are, as we were able to get married twice in one year. I never wanted a wedding, and as it happened, hurricane sandy came though and cancelled my wedding that was scheduled for November 3rd. My husband and I quickly pulled together a backyard wedding for November 3rd, and were able to re-schedule the big event for July. Since I didn't want to plan one wedding the idea of having to plan 2 weddings in one year was overwhelming. For our wedding in July, my husband and I decided to hire Kathi and her team. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. Kathi made wedding planning so easy. She was so responsive, had great suggestions and her day of support was fantastic. The only thing I would have done differently for our two weddings would have been to hire Kathi and her team for both of them.

Kathi and her ATB team were outstanding. We initially hired Kathi to find a venue for our wedding as we were planning from out of town. We were so impressed with Kathi that we hired her to also coordinate the day-of our wedding. Kathi and her team made our wedding flawless - they literally took care of all the details (many things I would have never thought of on my own!) and my husband and I were able to relax and enjoy our wedding day. Her ATB team was incredibly attentive and professional the entire day. Hiring Kathi was the best decision we made for our wedding day.

Words can not express my gratitude towards Kathi Evans and her staff from All The Best. My wedding was incredible! From the moment I started to plan Kathi was right by my side, never did she miss one email or phone call and always responded back with in the hour and as a Bride a quick response is what you need. Kathi helped me pick out my DJ, Photographer, Videographer ect. All the people she gave me I booked with in the first 5 minutes of meeting them. She knew exactly what I was looking for and now that the day is over I have a lifetime of memories thanks to her. The day of my wedding went off with out a complaint or if there was one I did not know about it because it was all focused on me and everything else was taken care of behind the scenes. Even though it down poured through out the day, Kathi took care of the guests and myself with umbrellas and set-up for a plan B, being that we were suppose to have some pictures and cocktail hour partially outside. Everything turned out perfect regardless of the rain and that is all because of her. A wedding planner puts everything Brides nightmare at ease! She is most definitely one of a kind and I recommend her and her company to every upcoming Bride!!!!!!

Words can not express my gratitude towards Kathi Evans and her staff from All The Best. My wedding was incredible! From the moment I started to plan Kathi was right by my side, never did she miss one email or phone call and always responded back with in the hour and as a Bride a quick response is what you need. Kathi helped me pick out my DJ, Photographer, Videographer ect. All the people she gave me I booked with in the first 5 minutes of meeting them. She knew exactly what I was looking for and now that the day is over I have a lifetime of memories thanks to her.

You're crazy if you don't hire Kathi and her team! My husband and I were difficult to work with at times, but they did a great job making our dreams come true. Our wedding was more then we could have ever dreamt of and Kathi made that possible. We gave her ideas and concepts of what we wanted, then ATB turned it into a reality.

Kathi and her team were truly outstandiing. Not only did they help us select, what turned out to be the best wedding vendors, but they themselves helped create an unbelievable wedding for my daughter. I am a tough cookie and have set high standards all my life and Kathi met my expectations. On the day of the wedding she exceeded them!!! I never had to worry (well I still worried) about a thing. Highly recommend her to any bride.

Kathi Evans at All The Best is truly amazing. We came to Kathi with only four months to plan a wedding, and what a wedding she created for us! Her knowledge and expertise was invaluable. Kathi's first priority was how to make our vision come to life in the most beautiful way possible, and she did this through every step of the process. She was with us from the invitations to the wedding day making sure that everything was perfect. Her attention to detail is super human and her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. So many of our guests told us that ours was the best wedding they had ever attended and marveled at how this was all possible in such a short time frame. We truly could not have achieved a wedding of this caliber without Kathi.

The ATB celebrations team was a life saver, I just can't see how anyone wouldn't use a back up team to help with planning any type of event. We had a very small wedding of under 40 people @ Six Flags, Jackson,NJ..and Kathi and her team made a crazy day, simple and magical. Thank you!!!!!

All The Best helped make our wedding day the best day we have ever had. But we didn't make it easy. Kathi Evans definitely had her hands full with our complicated wish list. Thank God we chose All The Best to plan our wedding. We relied greatly on Kathi and her experience. She worked closely with all our vendors and helped us in negotiating all the contracts. She turned a private beach house into a venue with valet parking. She found our caterer and helped us with the menu down to the last bite. She found our wonderful florist. She found our super excellent photographer who was probably the best decision we made after choosing All the Best. She found our hair, nail, and make-up people who pampered us with massages on the day of the wedding. She handled all the deliveries and logistics and we most sincerely could not have done it without her.

On the day of the wedding she came with a staff of six who made sure our guests wanted for nothing. Thanks to Kathi most of our friends said that ours was the best wedding they had ever been to. When it was time for the ceremony the weather changed and rain threatened to ruin our beach side wedding. Kathi and her staff had to reset the entire venue to keep us dry but, at the last minute, the sky cleared and Kathi and her staff again reset the venue to give us the wedding we had hoped for. After that we really didn't need to ask for much else, everything was always done and Kathi was always two steps ahead of us. Kathi Evans did a fantastic job for us and we will truly be forever grateful.

We have already recommended her to everyone we know, especially all those brides-to-be who think they can do it all themselves. If you really want to enjoy your wedding instead of arguing with relatives or vendors or putting out all the little fires that will surely arise, hire a professional. And if you want a really great professional, hire All the Best. When they say "All the Best" they mean it.

Kathi Evans and her team at ATB were phenomenal. We worked with Kathi on the full wedding planning for over a year. She was super helpful at recommending vendors, but not pushy if we wanted to use a referral of our own. She was key in getting a ceremony site set, which was a tough thing to find based on what we wanted and where we were getting married. She stayed calm even when we got down to the wire on making decisions. Kathi was constantly available by email and she wrote back promptly to any concerns I raised.

The week of the wedding Kathi helped to get the hotel boxes delivered and took tons of stuff over to our venue and ceremony site. I definitely would not have been able to finish all of the last details without her help. She kept constant lists and last minute confirmations going with all of our vendors so that everyone was on the same page and ready to go.

When it came to the day of the wedding we could not have done it without Kathi and her staff. The assistants she brought the day of the wedding could not have been nicer or more professional (thank you so much, Lauren, Caety, and Alexandra!!!!). Someone was available to me or the groom at all times, and one of Kathi's assistants even went all the way back to our house to get my hair clip which I forgot! The whole team went above and beyond and made the day run as smoothly as a wedding can.

I would 100% recommend Kathi to any bride and groom who think about wedding planning and start getting overwhelmed. No wedding is stress-free, but I really can't imagine pulling off this event without All the Best Celebrations. Thank you so much, Kathi!!! All the best to you and your team :)

Worth every cent and then some!! Kathi and her team made my day! They were helpful, attentive, organized, communicative, useful beyond words, and super creative. I literally couldn't have done it without them. They took over the day-of-coordination right where I left off. They handled all of the guests, set up, and break down, while I got my hair and make up done and enjoyed my family and friends. Kathi worked with me through emails and phone calls well before the day of the wedding, and then her and her girls worked through my beach wedding despite the howling wind, pouring rain, and blaring hot sun! I was absolutely thrilled with everything they did for me. Kathi even offered to show up to my rehearsal the night before. It was just... it was so worth it to have them with me. Thank you Kathi, Lauren, and Ashley for making my day that much more fabulous! XOXO (I hope I got everyone's name right!) You won't be disappointed if you hire Kathi, so... GO FOR IT!

Unbelievable is an understatement. Kathi and her team were absolutely wonderful from start to finish. I contacted Kathi 8 months prior to our 5/29/11 wedding in Cape May and she welcomed the challenge with open arms. I e-mailed her at least 3x daily for those 8 months and she responded almost immediately every single time. She constantly calmed my nerves when things got hectic and was always a sounding board for any venting and advice needed! The week leading up to our wedding it all came together. Kathi made sure all my other vendors were on the same page and her day of itinerary was completed minute by minute--just what I wanted! The day of went super smoothly and I could not have asked for a better, more organized wedding! At one point, one of her team members was in the bathroom with me trying to rinse out cake frosting from my dress due to my husband and I getting cake on each other during the cake cutting. At that moment, I thought--wow--SO WORTH IT!!! Completely supportive and always ready to listen, Kathi and her team went beyond my expectations. I don't know how people have weddings WITHOUT a planner!

As a wedding planner myself, I knew the importance of having a wedding planner for our own wedding day. Furthermore, we knew the importance of hiring Kathi Evans, specifically. Kathi and her crew made everything happen just as we had hoped. With an outdoor location, a lot of extra work was necessary and we felt so comfortable leaving all of our plans in the hands of the ATB team. Kathi did a number of walk-throughs with us at our wedding location to ensure she knew exactly what needed to be communicated to our vendors to make the event run smoothly. Her communication was outstanding, not only with us, but with our vendors, as well. We were so fortunate to have her handle everything so that we could just RELAX and enjoy our wedding day. We would highly recommend her to anyone.

She had a wonderful sense of humor with everything, and we had a great time at our wedding. Thank you, Kathi. You are truly "All the Best."

The number one reason we hired Kathi was because someone I trusted recommended her. We told her we had quite a bit planned out but needed her to make our day CALM and run smoothly. As it turns out in nearly every single instance where there was a glitch it was because she apparently did not field the problem, rather she passed it on. This doesn't make for a non-stress situation. In requesting vendor information many a time she would report she would get back to me with names and eventually I found sources on my own, (tux rental, shoe dye). I regret hiring her and would not recommend her to anyone. She did not make me calm and did not deal strongly with our venue when they were playing fast and loose with room arrangements and timelines (nor could she or anyone get the unruly crowd in the adjoining room to quiet down). Poor choice for us.

All the Best Weddings, Celebrations & Events responded with the following comments:

First, let me say that I am not looking for anything to change regarding the low rating that Mrs. Ryan has given for the services performed by All the Best. I stand 100% behind everything that was done on her behalf.

I would take full responsibility if any of the issues she mentioned were a result of my direct actions or inactions. I wouldn't change any of the efforts made on her behalf including the referrals for where she got her custom made wedding dress and the jeweler who was able to hand engrave her ring.

I did not choose, nor would I have recommended, their venue. It was she and Mr. Ryan who decided on the venue months before they hired me. I don't know what anyone could have done to overcome the "fast and loose" issues she had with the venue.

My team and I do our best to make sure that each and every client is completely satisfied and we are aware that sometimes that is just not possible. Constructive criticism helps me to grow personally and professionally. The statements made by Mrs. Ryan lead me to believe that she may not fully know everything that All the Best did or tried to do on their behalf.

Wishing Pat and Ray all the best.

Kathi R Evans, President
