The Wedding Design Experience with KPD: Your wedding is YOUR wedding, not ours. Our job is to figure out what makes you and your fiancé click. We get to know the two of you and your families and decide how to best represent you, because, let’s face it, a wedding reception is a big personality party. What’s more important however, is the fact that you’re marrying someone who loves you as much as you love them. At Kate Parker Designs we want you to actually keep your marriage in mind throughout the planning and design process which is why we offer full floral and event design services to ensure you don’t have to dig, research and argue over pricing, menus, and color schemes. Let us help you find the perfect photographer who knows not to take tons of posed images, the cake baker who specializes in gluten-free and vegan desserts, and let us help you create details and nuances that feel just like the two of you.

We are here to guide, not to decide. In all honesty, we sort of don’t care what your color scheme is or your style of reception, no offense of course. That’s not up to us to choose for you. Our job is to take all the pieces you want to incorporate, to find you the highest quality vendors around, and to orchestrate your wedding weekend without taking over and stressing everyone out. You will probably be a big ball of nerves anyway, so we don’t really have to add to that by running around with clipboards, business suits, and headsets. Everyone at KPD is a laid-back New Englander at heart, and we always blend seamlessly with your guests to keep things in order and on track without causing a scene. Read less

Planning for your wedding is supposed to be a happy time in your life and Kate succeeded in making it a painful and stressful experience. I'm told she has now closed her shop but if she ever gets back in the game do yourself a favor and run the opposite direction, as fast as possible.

Eben and Kate Parker from Kate Parker Designs did an absolutely fantastic job with the flowers and decor for our wedding. We mostly worked with Eben and he was so responsive throughout our year-planning period . . . he listened to our ideas, contributed his own and gave us wonderful suggestions! Nothing could have gone better and we would recommend them to anyone!!!!!

Truthfully I was so excited to work with Kate (first starting out as my wedding coordinator at my venue The International in Bolton, MA with her in house floral business) but I was utterly disappointed. She abruptly left The International due to personal issues. That was terrible... Then when I was contacted by her associate Eben (who was very kind and responsive) Kate was no where to be found. She promised me the world and all of this flexibility with everything.. Didn't happen. I told them my max for flowers was 2k and they came back with a 5k proposal stating "we went over a bit.. Whoops". Awesome. Way to take advantage. I went up for a mock up which was awkward and impersonal. Kate was there and barely said Hello although she did hook me up with someone to do my up lights and pipe & drape (for a GRAND - later finding out that was her boyfriend. Sweet.) When I first met her she had a husband so I pieced together the personal reasons for leaving The International at that point. Then... On the day of my wedding two little girls show up whom I've never met before to set up everything. Where in the world was Kate or Eben. When I asked I was told they weren't coming. Is that a JOKE!? They showed up with pin on corsages for the moms which were supposed to be wrist ones. They changed them into wrist ones which looked disgusting and were falling off of my mom and MIL. I was SO livid. My bouquet was unimpressive. I wanted a BRIDAL bouquet of white roses and it wasn't worth anything I paid for...(almost $300 if I remember right!?) Not even close. I heard too she closed down her shop. I pray she doesn't get back into this unless her heart is in it. I felt taken advantage of completely. Not to mention everything she quoted me for my actual wedding reception at the International was unheard if by the venue and I had to fight throughout my entire process. Completely let down and paid through the nose for less than what I was promised.

There literally aren't enough words to thank Kate and the team for the most beautiful decor, flowers, lighting and specially designed custom pieces that completely captured us as a couple and the feel we wanted for our wedding. People kept complimenting all the gorgeous details and Kate Parker Designs is totally responsible. I put my trust in her expertise and gave her free reign, and her vision became such a beautiful reality!

xoxo Kate!

We had DJ Ryan Parker for our wedding reception and would highly recommend him. He was always very responsive and very flexible to our needs. We needed a DJ that would be able to handle our wide variety of music tastes as well as one that wouldn't be cheesy or play anything we didn't want him to. Our do not playlists and playlists were detailed but he did not have any issues making it work. Everyone had a wonderful time dancing!

Kate Parker (or KP as we affectionately call her) really envisioned and orchestrated the wedding of our dreams. She patiently walked us through all our options, politely steering us away from our terrible ideas, and worked with us to improve our okay ones. Best yet, however, is her incredible Rolodex - she knows success comes with other great vendors and pointed us into the right directions. We couldn't be happier with how she executed our wedding, including the incredible flowers and design touches, both big and small. Her attention to detail and creativity make working with her a no-brainer, and we can't thank her enough.

Kate Parker is.... flat..... out....... fabulous!

We used KP for flowers/decor and the two week planning package, but she did so much more than we ever could have imagined. For starters, she's an expert, she can tell you how the day will flow down the last minute, which was something we really didn't know how to plan for. Start to finish our guests raved about the feel of the day and the way the events flowed so smoothly. Our flowers were stunning, absolutely gorgeous. She even threw in little details we didn't know about, like adding finishing touches to our menu, a beautiful flower bunch tied to the back of my chair. She found ways to reuse the ceremony pieces at the reception. My parents were thrilled and my dad especially is a hard guy to please.

Kate will make you feel comfortable. I had a good vision of what I was looking for and immediately knew that my vision was safe in her capable creative hands. Whether you are the type of person who likes to be heavily involved in the planning or you want to turn over all of the planning to an expert... Kate Parker is the girl for you.

Her attention to detail did not go unnoticed by our guests. Everyone commented about how we thought of everything. I can honestly say that I was able to relax and enjoy my entire wedding because of Kate. I would highly recommend her and her team.

Kate is amazingly talented and easy to work with! I met with four other wedding planners before choosing to work with her. She pays incredible attention to detail and brings some amazing concepts/ideas and creativity...at the same time she was completely open to my ideas and let me do my thing, so it was a good balance. She also recommended some fantastic vendors - I used her stationer, hair and makeup team. I would definitely recommend working with her, I wouldn't have changed a thing about my wedding day!

Kate (and the KPD family) are amazing in every way. She put together the wedding we wanted perfectly and was professional yet approachable through the entire process. Her advice was always thorough and she is extremely organized and managed everything. She was also able to add creative style elements to our wedding and reception, but stay within our budget.

The real 'KPD shining star' moment, though, was the day-of. Our lady-in-waiting handled everything we needed while getting ready- that included steaming my wedding gown plus 6 more dresses. I was really able to enjoy getting ready with my bridesmaids and mom and just relax. And 2 hours before the wedding, when we mentioned we thought it would be fun to pass out glow sticks on the dance floor, a call was made and 20 min. later, Kate had glow sticks in hand. Kate took care of all issues at the reception so quickly, the guests never knew there was an issue. When I said the buffet was missing ketchup, I blinked, and it was put on the table. When a guest dropped a glass by the dance floor, Kate blended in and kept barefoot girls from walking near it.

We absolutely loved our KPD wedding and we highly recommend Kate for planning and flowers

I found Kate Parker through the suggestion of my photographers who had worked with her in the past. I perused her website and instantly felt like she would "get" my style.

I was right - my mother and I drove up to New Hampshire from MA to meet with her and I only said a few key words and she immediately described exactly what I wanted for flowers - classic, New England, preppy style for a nautical but not "beachy" wedding. Those words came out of her mouth but were in my head. I immediately felt as though i was in good hands.

My mom and I got in the car and she said "Let's go with her!" even though she was the first and only florist we met with. So we went with Kate. We didn't have a ton of money for flowers but they were very important to me. I was not disappointed at all.

The day of my wedding Kate personally delivered my bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets to me and we were all blown away. They were classic and beautiful - exactly what I wanted.

When I arrived at my ceremony and reception site I noticed many little details that Kate and I didn't talk about that she did on her own. Her touch was everywhere.

Walking into my reception tent I was absolutely in love with my centerpieces and linens - which she also helped me with.

My guests raved and raved about my beautiful flowers and I couldn't have been happier. Thank you to Kate and her team for creating such a beautiful design!

Kate and her team not only created beautiful flower arrangements for our ceremony, reception and bodies, but they were prompt and competent. The fact that I didn't even have to give a thought to the flowers was huge for me! Even when the bride and maid of honor's bouquets came and had some blossoms that had seen better days, Kate's team quickly brought them back and replaced the offending flowers within 20 minutes. And without being irritated (or at least, without showing it!).

When I got to the ceremony, there were even a few touches I didn't expect whatsoever - a beautiful fabric aisle runner strewn with petals...just lovely! Not only that, but we had initially thought we would have the ceremony indoors, but the day dawned miraculously gorgeous and we decided to go for it in the park. With that last-minute change Kate and team responded perfectly.
