Even before we hired Kelly as our month of wedding coordinator, she was so helpful with offering ideas and contacts for vendors to inquire with. That's how I knew I had to work with her. Kelly is a great listener and an active sounding board which helps you figure out what you really want. Come wedding day, Kelly was wonderful! We put complete trust in her and she really took care of all the details. My husband and I even got compliments from friends and family about how great Kelly was. I'm not sure what exactly she did to win the hearts of our guests, but whatever it was we were happy for it.

My fiancé and I were going to elope, then decided to instead have a surprise wedding. I knew there was no way we could pull this off on our own, with two full time jobs and no friends or family to help (since we were going to surprise them!).

I consider myself EXTREMELY organized ... in fact people make fun of me planning my life on spreadsheets, etc ... and I think I finally met my match in Kelly. She was consistent in her follow up with both me and our vendors, and was pro-active throughout the whole process.

Kelly had ideas I would have never thought of (it may be a better idea to put the dessert table here because ...... for your ceremony have you thought of doing this ...., etc). If I wanted it my way I could have it, but all of her suggestions were too good to pass up.

The day of, I could not have had anyone more professional running the show. The vendors respected her, the venue respected her, and she seemed to always be in the right place in the right time ... five steps ahead.

Kelly was recommended to us by another couple after we were first engaged and as soon as we met with her, we knew she would be a great fit. Our wedding was a few weeks ago and though the planning process was daunting at times, Kelly made it a great experience. She was easy to reach with questions and concerns and always had helpful suggestions. She was exceptionally organized from start to finish and made sure we met all of our deadlines along the way. Many of our vendors and wedding venue had worked with her in the past and had wonderful things to say. It meant a lot to us that she had great relationships with so many local businesses and could deal with them directly as it got closer to the date. Kelly was always ready to take stuff off our plate and made us feel supported. She was extremely professional throughout and made sure everything ran smoothly the day of. It was a huge relief to know that she was on top of it all, and she was beyond wonderful with our families and wedding parties. I've even recommended her to one of my recently engaged bridesmaids. Kelly was a pleasure to work with and made the entire experience a pleasant one!

Kelly is truly amazing! I was referred to her through our wedding venue since I wanted someone who was very familiar with the space and I couldn’t be happier with our choice to hire her. Pre-wedding: Kelly answered all of my questions in a very timely manner and was extremely patient with me (I asked A LOT of questions). Day of: Kelly took care of EVERYTHING, ensuring that my vision came to life beautifully and on track. She took care of every issue that came up and refused to let me be bothered by any of it. When our Rabbi forgot to bring our personalized vows he said he’d bring, she stepped up to the plate and got them printed exactly the way I wanted just in time for the ceremony to begin. Everyone was extremely impressed by how gentle, yet firm she was. She kept us on schedule and everything ran very smoothly because of her. Our favorite part was that at some point in the evening, she came over and got us when it was time for my groom and I to sit down and eat. We’ve heard that most couples don’t get to eat at their wedding but we did because of her! (Granted, we scarffed our food so we could get back to making the rounds and thanking everyone, but at least we got to eat our food while it was still hot!) Kelly handled everything with extreme grace and managed all the moving parts I threw at her perfectly. If you're about to plan a wedding, please know that there are two things you can not skimp on: a great photographer and a wedding coordinator that handles all of your day of needs! We plan on recommending Kelly to all of our friends because she's worth every penny!!

She allowed my husband and I (parents of the bride) to truly enjoyed our daughter's special day. Words can not describe how grateful we are that Kelly was "the wedding planner".
ps. she is also the wedding planner for our son's wedding this December!
Totally would hire her......as a matter of fact....we have twice in one year!!!!

Where to begin when I have so many wonderful things to say about the AMAZING Kelly Demaray… First of all, my family and I thought Kelly was so fantastic that she's going to be working with my sister on her upcoming wedding. I found Kelly online and she's the only coordinator my fiancé and I met with. We basically knew before meeting in person that she would be the one based on her excellent communication skills, professionalism, and warmth exuded via phone and email. Once we met, that was it. Living in NYC and planning a wedding in LA isn't the easiest thing, but Kelly made it much more doable. She was so accommodating about meeting with us when we'd come to town and was also great with email. Every step of the way Kelly went above and beyond, from recommending our amazing florist and guitar player to bouncing ideas around for decor. The best thing about working with her is that we knew we wouldn't have to worry about a thing once the big day came because Kelly knows weddings like the back of her hand. Her timeline leading up to the wedding was great and the timeline for the day of the wedding was super useful for us and our families. Kelly is well connected with many wedding professionals, so she not only has tons of people to recommend, but also worked seamlessly with our caterer, florist, DJ, etc… Kelly is knowledgable, professional, polished, and a great leader for couples and all the wedding vendors. I really could go on and on… As a New Yorker with high expectations, I can absolutely say that Kelly rose to the occasion and met all of ours. She's a true professional and also a really lovely gal to be around. (We were sincerely bummed that we wouldn't be in touch with her regularly once the wedding was over.) I can't wait to see how wonderful my sister's wedding turns out next year!

Kelly's great! Fun, helpful, organized. She kept our day on track and I couldn't imagine trying to handle it ourselves. The day was perfect, fun and stress-free and a large part of that is due to her hard work and abilities. Highly recommended!

We used her as a coordinator, not the full planning package, but might have had her do the whole wedding if we could turn back time.

Here's some pics of our wedding if you want to see for yourself:

My husband and I hired Kelly to be our day of coordinator for our wedding and could not have been happier with her. We interviewed several coordinators before we met Kelly and none of them felt quite right for our personalities and needs. After a few minutes into our initial meeting with Kelly we knew she was the perfect choice. She is organized, professional and has get insights/opinions, but is also fun and super easy to get along with. We knew she would keep our day on track without being too overbearing (which we have seen happen at other friend's weddings). Her services technically started 1-month before our wedding, but she was available if we needed her for a question or two before that. Once we were a month out from the wedding, Kelly stepped in and took over for us. She got our contracts organized, helped finalize all the details with the vendors, reviewed our rental list to make sure we had everything we needed (or to take off things we didn't need), etc. She just made sure everything was done and it was amazing. I am a type-A, super organizer/planner, so I was worried about being able to let go of everything, but with Kelly I was happy to hand everything off to her and was confident it would all get done. We had a lot of DIY elements to our wedding, including the flowers, and quite a few non-traditional elements to work in to the day (champagne toast with all the guest at the end of the ceremony, multi-course family style meal with beer pairings for each course to name few) and Kelly pulled off each one without any issues. The day before our wedding she picked up a lot of the items that needed to be taken to the venue, which was a huge help. When I arrived for the day the space looked beautiful thanks to Kelly and her assistant’s decorating. They made our vision for the space come to life. I honestly was as relaxed as could be and did not have to do a thing. The day went perfectly and my guests had an amazing time. I could not have imagined pulling off my

Kelly was indispensable as the day of the wedding coordinator for my daughter's wedding. My daughter and her now husband were in Boston while I was in Orange County and the wedding venue was in Pasadena. Kelly kept in constant contact with my daughter, myself , the venue manager, DJ, florist and bakery. From our first meeting I knew I could trust Kelly in helping me give my daughter the wedding of her dreams. Kelly's experience and expertise shined through in every aspect of her helping me plan my daughter's wedding day. Once my daughter and I coordinated with Kelly the wedding timeline and rehearsal details I left everything to Kelly. During the wedding I was able to enjoy my daughter's wedding as the mother of the bride. Not once during the wedding did I have to worry about anything every thing ran smoothly. Kelly even remembered to save the top of the wedding cake. My daughter and I had completely forgotten about saving the cake. Several of the bridesmaids had been in other weddings and they said Kelly was the kindest and nicest wedding coordinator they had meet. I could not imagine working with any other wedding coordinator. I only wish I had another daughter so I could work with Kelly again.
