Where should I start to rave about the supportive and comprehensive services provided by Kristy and team? They were there for everything... the entire time leading up to the event and all day the day of. Our wedding would not have happened if it was not for Kristy and team - simple as that. They were instrumental, they were my sanity, my sounding board, my personal bridal consultant, the list goes on. Whether you are wondering if you need help or you are confident that you 'got this'... call Kristy. You won't regret it either way. Whatever you need, they will come through. It took all about 10 minutes in to the week of my wedding for me to forget that Kristy was a vendor that I was paying because she seemed to be more of a friend. She and her team so seamlessly fit in with my crew, it was easy to forget she wasn’t part of the bridal party. Ali was there with me and my bridesmaids ALL MORNING, and I (or my groom and his party) would NOT have gotten dressed on time if it wasn't for her! She fixed my bustle about 5 times and went totally above and beyond. Joan spent aout 30 minutes with me alone in a porta potty while we were waiting out a complete downpour (my venue was a complete outside DIY location). The whole team made my day special and actually possible. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

Our day of coordinators were a dream come true!! I had worked with Kristy for a few months before our October 18th wedding after I found out I would be traveling for work quite a bit the month before our wedding. I felt like I needed another set of eyes and hands to make sure everything went smoothly that day. Kristy was extremely responsive to emails and had great suggestions! She was such a pro and made me feel completely at ease! The day of the wedding came and she was there bright and early to make sure everything went smoothly and to keep me (and my family) calm. I don't know how she did it, but she managed to be in a million places at once and never look or act frazzled! Joanne was another member of her team, and she was just as amazing! Not only was she the sweetest thing, but her calm demeanor helped me relax greatly. I couldn't have asked for more from these two amazing ladies! They were so so so awesome and helped pull all our little details (and trust me, we had a lot of details!!) together and made everything flow smoothly!! I felt like they went above and beyond (even taming our 160lb English Mastiff puppy!) and we worth every penny!! Love you girls!! :-) Thank you for being so incredibly amazing!!

Kristy and Cheryl helped me plan my absolute dream wedding and everything came together perfectly! They were a pleasure to work with and were able to make all of my ideas come to life. Not only did they answer all of my emails and questions for the year leading up to the wedding but they allowed me to be carefree on the day of the wedding! Allie, my lady in waiting was with me and my 11 bridesmaids the entire morning and helped to keep us on track with hair, makeup and getting dressed. Kristy & Cheryl made sure that the reception was exactly what I envisioned from the beautifully placed bow napkins to the carefully selected little details!!! Cheryl was with me and my husband the entire day and had everything I needed in her handy emergency bag! I don't know what I would have done without them! I highly recommend KC EVENT PLANNING!!! If I planned my wedding all over again, I wouldn't change a single thing thanks to these ladies!!!

Kristy and Cheryl are amazing! We hired KC Event planning as our day of coordinators and it was the best decision we made. They not only helped put the day together but they helped me with my centerpieces where my florist wouldn’t. They went to the hotel to ensure all guest got on the shuttle, and made sure the reception was exactly what we had wanted. Our day wouldn’t of been smooth with out the help of these ladies and I highly recommend that any bride looking for help use them.

From the day we met with Kristy and Cheryl of KC Event Planning we knew hands down we needed their help. I am a super busy lawyer with no time to do anything except my job. They understood our wedding day vision and maintained that focus for the year of planning our special day. There was an instant connection with Kristy and Cheryl in our initial meeting and we walked away from that meeting feeling confident that we would be well taken care of. Our instincts proved right and we couldn’t have asked for a better Wedding Planners!

Whether you need a full-service planner or only services on the day of your wedding KC Event Planning will not disappoint you. We opted for a full service package because of our limited time and I cannot imagine having done the planning without them. They worked hard on every detail and dealt with all of my freak outs and Bridezillas moments perfectly. I know I was a difficult bride and if they could get my stamp of approval that goes a longg way! Trust me!

They can work with any budget and believe me Kristy will keep you in budget! She also helps you bargain shop to execute your vision within your price range. Wedding planners are not just for big weddings.. They can effectuate a small wedding and keep you in check!

Both girls were on on hand from the rehearsal and all day of the wedding, with a timeline that ensured that everything ran smoothly. I had a "Lady in Waiting" on my wedding day and it was the best thing ever!! She made sure people were on time and if I wanted someone to do something or leave me alone... I told her and she did my dirty work. Ha! :)

They also put together the most amazing candy buffet table ever!! I would recommend them for any bride (and groom..lol..) who want only the best! These girls are the best and they managed our wedding day seamlessly!

Happy Planning and enjoy the good and bad moments of it... you'll miss it afterwards :)

Kristy and Cheryl are fantastic at what they do. They are right beside you every step of the way, and ready to help with any issue that arises. It was such a weight off my shoulders to have their assistance throughout the planning process. They not only have great experience and knowledge when it comes to wedding prep, but came to be such a calming force during a time of much stress. Their professional attitude/demeanor mixed with their kindness and compassion makes for a perfect mix! No detail is left untouched with KC Event Planning! Their creativity and ideas are excellent, as they seem to make even the most basic little details come to life and shine! I would highly recommend their services to any bride to be!

Kristy with KC Event Planning was awesome. I got married in April 2012 in Long Branch, NJ and had Kristy help with the morning of coordinating up until the reception. As a bride, I cannot say how helpful and wonderful it was to have someone else there to help with all of the little details and chaos going on the day of. My bridesmaids, sister, and Mom were all there to help as well, but as they can get caught up in the day and with hair/make up, I found myself much more relaxed once Kristy arrived. She made me feel so comfortable knowing that she was there to help with anything and everything. Kristy was on the ball as soon as she arrived and she was by my side checking in during the entire time from hair/make up to the ceremony to the pictures. I can put into words how awesome she is, but will provide a few details which helped make my big day so smooth and seamless. As soon as Kristy arrived, she was able to take over and help order us lunch while the girls were getting ready. She even picked up all the food and helped to make sure the flower girls were able to eat and got them situated. To help ease my worries, Kristy checked in with the boys room with my groom occasionally to make sure they were running on time, getting dressed, not having too many beers, were ready for photographer, helped with boutineers, etc. She helped with the exchange on our pre-wedding cards and gifts, delivered some of our final payments, made sure the best man had the rings in his pocket, helped with me getting dressed, into my gown, my veil, etc. All of these things I would have been worried about without her there to run around and help comfort me. She made sure the boys and everyone was on time for the trolley pick up, helped prepped me before walking down the aisle at the church, was there after to help coordinate and gather everyone for pictures. She help my purse with my make up for freshening up, had all of the essentials, deodorant, scissors, hairspray, band aids, etc. that we needed during the day. She also stayed with me and my husband during our solo beach pictures after the bridal party pictures were done so I could have some help and someone by my side, while the bridal party headed to cocktail hour. Overall, she was fantastic and I would highly recommend them.

We felt immediately that Kristy & Cheryl understood what we were looking for in the type of wedding we were planning. We wanted a country/western wedding, at a farm, complete with my horse involved w/the wedding.

We went with the full package and they captured the finest details from A-Z, found us the best pricing, were very responsive (Kristy was in touch via email & text messaging, and she would send me photos of ideas she had) & they had everything set up perfectly. In fact, looking back at photos, there were details we didn't even "catch" on our wedding day that were fabulous! We are still receiving compliments as to how unique and elegant our wedding day was!

They even made our wedding invitations & thank you cards to match our theme!

They were on time, very responsive, very quick to respond, and it was a very elegant, classy wedding! They spend a lot of time with us the Saturday prior to our wedding to pull last minute details together.

The only thing I would have liked to see, is them making sure my hair/makeup looked perfect throughout the day, as the package we purchased was supposed to include this but I was never approached to fix my lipstick or run a brush through my hair, nor asissted in the ladies room.

We will be hiring them for our baby shower in the future!

Kristy did an AMAZING job at helping me plan my wedding! She found me great deals on various essentials. People raved about my invitations and they were at a very affordable cost. My venue wanted to charge me above and beyond for the chair covers, but Kristy got them for nearly half the cost! Thank you so much for making our day that much more special!

I hired KC Event Planning to do full service event planning for my wedding. It was the best decision that I ever made!! They knew exactly what to do and were always available to answer all of my questions and concerns whenever I needed them. They turned my dream wedding into a reality. Everything ended up being perfect on the big day...down to the last detail. Nothing was over looked. Knowing that I had the girls' help took all the stress away. Their organizational skills were impeccable and their artistic vision was amazing. We have been getting phone calls non-stop since the wedding with everyone raving about it. I can't begin to tell you how many people told us it was "the best wedding they have ever been to." KC Event Planning made this all possible. They truly treated the wedding as if it were their own and worked so hard. My wedding turned out perfect!!!!! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Cheryl and Kristy were fantastic!!! Being a DIY kinda girl, I took on everything for my wedding including handmade invitations, centerpieces, lighting, place cards, candy buffet, ceremony decorations, etc, etc! After so many last minute hitches, I called on KC Event Planning for help and booked them for their Day of Coordination package. They really did help to save my day and were so extremely pleasant and professional! The setup of the ceremony and reception looked flawless and we all looked like we knew what we were doing-- thanks to these two fantastic ladies! From the bottom of my heart, thank you so so much! Jon and I loved our day!! We'd recommend KC Event Planning 100 percent!

Kristy and Cheryl were great; they helped me with every detail of my wedding. They reminded me of all the little things that I didnt even think of. They also helped me with some little projects I wanted to do myself. They were such a big help. Without them I know my wedding would not have gone as smoothly as it did. I highly recommend them for any event.

Kristy was AMAZING! We did the one day service and she met with us 3 times prior, including rotating around our schedule. Although we had a lot of things done beforehand, Kristy provided us with many unique ideas. She was with us for the rehearsal and the entire wedding day. She also contacted other vendors to check they were on schedule and when our chair rentals didn't show up on time, she was there to call them and ask for reimbursement. We couldn't have done those last minute details without her!

Friends of our suggested we get a day of wedding planner to ensure all runs smoothly - especially so our parents dont get caught up in any last minute drama. KC Events seemed to offer a great package at a great price. Prior to the wedding we had 3 phone calls to discuss wedding day details and all went smoothly. They were very responsive during this time and they even came to the rehearsal to meet everyone and make sure they were good on all plans for the wedding day.
What I wasnt pleased with was their lack of responsiveness on the wedding day. There were 2 coordinators and I was under the impression they would split up during the day to ensure both the wedding party and guests were under control. However they did not. Our photos were taken outside and it was a chilly day. I was freezing cold and it would have been nice to have one of the coordinators outside with us during photos with a jacket for me (when I was off camera). This wasnt something I had asked for originally but I thought about it after when I realized they had been sitting inside the entire time just hanging out. The other area they neglected to help with was coordinating our family photos which we had originally discussed together so it was disappointing they sat inside during this time as well. It gets very hectic pulling everyone together so it would have been very helpful if one of them had actually helped at that point. Lastly, when we got to the bridal suite prior to going down to the reception, neither one was there and we had a slight dress emergency that would have been key for them to help with. Overall, they were very pleasant to work with - however they did not meet my expectations on the wedding day itself.
