We hired Kristen from Kelley Cannon to provide day-of coordination services. If you are thinking about possibly going that route, I highly recommend it. The last two weeks before my wedding were so much less stressful than they would have been if I hadn't had Kristen. And the day of was amazing. I wasn't worried about a thing - Kristen made everything happen and the whole night went off flawlessly (from my perspective). I had a couple of really strong ideas in my head of how I wanted the night to be, and Kristen made it happen. I hired a coordinator because I didn't want my friends to have to work, but working with Kristen was like working with a friend. Guests commented on how friendly she was, and I was barely aware of her throughout the night, she was just making things happen. I interacted with Kelley a few times via email and she was also quick to respond and easy to work with, too.

We hired Lindsey Farrell for the Day-of Coordination + Design Assistance, and it was probably the best decision we could have ever made! Lindsey was absolutely wonderful and such a pleasure to work with! I was picky with my wedding details, but after spending time with Lindsey, I came to fully trust her with all my decisions- big and small. She understood my vision and helped me make (smart) decisions to make my dream wedding come true. On our wedding day, I did not worry about a thing cause I knew Lindsey was on top of everything. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and beautiful, and it truly is all because of Lindsey! I highly recommend Lindsey to anyone looking for an awesome planner!

Can't say enough good things about Kelley Cannon Events! We worked with Lindsey Farrel for day-of services and she was amazing!! I didn't worry about anything on the day of my wedding. She handled everything and all went smoothly. She was extremely knowledgeable about other vendors in the area and she thought of things we didn't know or had forgotten about. I would definitely recommend using them if you need a planner or coordinator for your wedding or event.

We used Kelley Cannon Events for Full Planning of our wedding in DC. From the beginning Kelley was very responsive, patient, and easy to get along with, I was never overly stressed about anything relating to the wedding because she was very organized and I could always check our planning tool to make sure we were on track with everything. She would give us about three options for every vendor so we could compare and contrast to see which one fit in better with our budget and wedding ideas, All of the vendors we eventually chose and that she recommended were amazing!! She would usually respond to questions within a couple days, but would also let us set up last minute meetings if necessary. The day of the wedding everything went so smoothly and was perfectly seamless. Overall, we are very happy we went with Kelley for our DC wedding...it turned out better than I could have ever imagined and I know she is the main reason for that.

We found Kelley through the preferred vendor list at our venue -- she has worked for the Hotel Monaco Alexandria several times and had a shining review from their staff. And, while we hired Kelley for her Day-of Coordination + Design Assistance – we feel like we got her for that and so much more. From the moment we met her, she was by our sides -- assisting with everything from (SEVERAL) vendor selections, to our tasting, to timeline planning, to our final florist meeting and walk-through. She was also super responsive, accommodating and supportive throughout such a stressful time, even handling rather-difficult vendors on our behalf. She made last-minute additions to our event (lighting, guitarist) seamless and stress-free – our event was BEAUTIFUL thanks to Kelley’s aesthetic. The day-of, she handled everything from managing guest requests, caring for personal belongings, and really just making it the most fun and special day of our lives. We are happy to call her a great friend and couldn’t be more thankful we went with her. She really is the BEST!!!!

These girls are the BEST!!! I worked with Kelley and Kristen for day-of planning. I only wish I would have paid to have them help me from the beginning. They really eased my stress (I'm an executive who had limited time to make wedding planning calls and emails during the work week). I'm so thankful to have had them- they fixed some day-of snafus and assured everything ran smoothly. They're very professional and extremely organized and experienced. I'd recommend them to anyone....FANTASTIC!

We can't say enough good things about Kelley Cannon Events and our wedding planner, Lindsay Farrell! We worked with Kelley Cannon via email when we first began our search for a wedding planner. She was very helpful. We met with Lindsay Farrell as we were narrowing down planners and were impressed right off the bat. She was incredibly professional and personable and it was an easy choice to hire Heras our planner. Kelley Cannon Events rates were straightforward and full planning services was truly full services. She went with us to all vendor meetings, helped us come up with ideas and make decisions that kept with the feel of the day we wanted to have, and was always responsive to our emails and phone calls. She only recommended excellent vendors that fit our budget and that provided great service. She was patient with all of our questions and never made us feel silly for asking stupid questions. Lindsay also helped to relieve the stress that comes with planning a wedding and always kept us on track. On our wedding day, everything ran smoothly because of all the work Lindsay did. I can truly say our wedding was more than we ever could have imagined and that is due to the work of Lindsay! We can't say enough good things about Lindsay and we will recommend her and Kelley Cannon Events to everyone.

This review is a bit late because of our extended honeymoon, so I'm anxious to get this out here! This is the first review that I have ever posted because I rarely use comment boards, but I'm delighted to support and share how wonderful it was to work with Lindsey. I initially reached out to another company, but was referred to Kelley Cannon Events and never once looked back. Lindsey executed my day-of and partial planning needs flawlessly. Guests involved in the activities of the Day repeatedly told me how pleasant it was to work with Lindsey and asked where I had found her. I have strong opinions, but Lindsey listened to my ideas, encouraged me and also instructed me when I was in the dark or going down the wrong road. She is extremely professional with a fun/cheerful/relaxed personality. When other vendors where confused by what I desired, Lindsey followed-up by being a helpful mediator and making sure we were on the same page. And lastly, the day before the wedding, I lost all my mini-clothespins to hold up the name cards. Lindsey responded to my panicked email early in the morning to tell me she reached into her own collection and counted 173 pins so I was saved! It's comforting in general to know you are supported or that someone is helping you as best they can through the entire process. I highly recommend Lindsey and Kelley Cannon Events!

Lindsey Farrell, of Kelley Cannon Events, provided fantastic service as my daughter's day of wedding coordinator. As the mother of the bride, who lives out of state, it was reassuring that everything was taken care of to the most minute detail! We had an itinerary for the day and she directed the wedding so that it flowed seamlessly. My daughter had someone to rely on before the wedding and I was able to relax and enjoy the wedding.

Lindsey is a pleasant, professional person who does not get ruffled easily. When it rained and the wedding had to be moved indoors, she arranged and decorated the room so that one would never have guessed the wedding was meant to be held anywhere else. She made the wedding an exciting time and a treasured memory, when it could have been quite stressful. My daughter enjoyed working with Lindsey and valued her expertise. It gave us both peace to have her overseeing the event.

I am so glad we had Kelley Cannon Events coordinate the wedding. I would use them again without a second thought. Thank you, Lindsey!

I worked with Lindsey from Kelley Cannon Events who was incredible! I truly owe the success of my wedding to her.

I splurged on a Day-Of Coordinator. The money I spent was not originally in my budget but it was worth every penny. After getting overwhelmed with the planning process I began interviewing coordinators. I interviewed 4 planners before finally meeting Lindsey. She was excellent from the beginning. The day we met I had total confidence in her ability to make my wedding a success. Throughout the planning process Lindsey was easily accessible to answer questions about etiquette and to recommend vendors. After consulting books, websites and family, I can say with confidence that Lindsey was the best resource I had.

During the wedding Lindsey was incredibly professional and overlooked no detail. The best thing about her is she needs so little direction. For example, I spent about 30 minutes going over my decor with Lindsey for the reception. When I got to the reception site, it looked better than I could have imagined. When there was a little hiccup with the florist, I notified Lindsey and it was fixed within half an hour. If you want to really enjoy a worry free wedding day, I highly recommend you consider Kelley Cannon Events.

Throughout the planning process Lindsey was easily accessible to answer questions about etiquette and to recommend vendors. After consulting books, websites and family, I can say with confidence that Lindsey was the best resource I had.

During the wedding Lindsey was incredibly professional and overlooked no detail. The best thing about her is she needs so little direction. For example, I spent about 30 minutes going over my decor with Lindsey for the reception. When I got to the reception site, it looked better than I could have imagined. When there was a little hiccup with the florist, I notified Lindsey and it was fixed within half an hour. If you want to really enjoy a worry free wedding day, I highly recommend you consider Kelley Cannon Events. Read less

Kelley was the best thing to happen to me!! As with most brides, I was totally overwhelmed with the wedding planning process, I also have a demanding job that requires long hours and lots of travel so my time was limited. Kelley exceeded all my expectations for event planning!! I could count on her knowledge and prompt response to any and all questions or concerns I had. She also helped me find the pefect vendors in my price range to make all my wedding ideas come to life!! I couldn't of asked for a better person to help with making my wedding the best day of my life!!!

Lindsey from Kelley Cannon events was more than I could have ever imagined. She was able to deal with my constant emails and all of my additions that I would forget to tell her about. I had a lot of crafts that I made myself to put up around the wedding and she took them all and set them up without a hitch. She was very flexible with negotiating the contract and even came with me to the caterer to pick out linens/chairs (the stuff I didn't care about). We had two groomsmen who had issues with their suits the day of the wedding and I didn't even know it happened because she came to the rescue! The wedding also started late because of traffic and she was able to pull everything together and get it back on time without anyone even noticing the changes. She found all of my vendors who all were amazing! I know I couldn't have had such an amazing wedding without her help and we are so grateful for her!

We would have been lost without Kelley when planning our wedding!! She really was the dream team before, during, and after. We were referred to Kelley from a friend who had worked with her for their wedding. She was so responsive when we contacted her and met with us right away. We actually met with her before deciding on any other vendors, and it definitely worked in our favor as she was able to recommend ways to negotiate and actually saved us a lot of money upfront. She also provided great advice on the decor for our wedding (also saving us money on mistakes we could have made). Her rates are so reasonable when you think of what money you will save by running decisions past her, her review of the contracts for the wedding, and keeping your sanity (and the sanity of fiance, parents, family, etc.) leading up to the wedding is priceless.
We knew we wanted to use a wedding coordinator because we had been guests at weddings where we had to do a lot of work because there wasn't one. We also thought of Kelley as "insurance" for anything that could happen at the wedding... rain, unruly guests, odd requests, misbehaving relatives, etc. Kelley has seen it all and you will be in great hands!! Her menu of services let you pick what you need, and whatever service you choose (full, partial, day-of), it always includes email and phone consults and a review of all your contracts, which is great.
The day of our wedding was so seamless because Kelley was there in the background. She handled everything while our parents and we were able to relax on the important parts of the day... getting married!

Kelley was an amazing day-of coordinator for my daughter's wedding. She was delightful to work with, solved issues before they became problems, help us navigate all the vendors, and gave the bride and our family a stress-free day to celebrate with our guests. Kelley always had a smile and there was no task too small on which to seek her advice. Her calm and efficient manner was a joy to count on during the wedding events.
I would highly recommend her services to anyone planning one!

PERFECT, That is the first word that comes to mind when I think of working with Kelley. I found Kelley through a google search online and reached out to her. She was absolutely amazing to work with. She let me know from the beginning that she was always available through text, cell, or email, and she was!

I also had the joy of working with Kelley through her pregnancy, and birth of her first child. Let me tell you- girl had it ALL together! You would have never known that she had a baby just weeks before my wedding, she handled the whole event with class, organization and punctuality. I felt so at ease on my wedding day due to all the hard work she did behind the scenes for us. My wedding would NOT have been the same without her.

Kelley also hooked me up with the majority of my vendors. I had no idea who I wanted to use for my vendors and she made suggestions and got me AMAZING vendors to deal with that she works with often, that I knew I could trust. I loved the vendors almost as much as I loved Kelley! Kelley also helped me center in on the theme for my wedding, color schemes, flower/decoration choices. I had no idea what I wanted to do for a lot of these ideas, and Kelley sat down with me one morning for coffee and we "Pintrested" until I decided what it was I was looking for!

If you want a wedding planner that is flexible, energetic, professional, and... I will go ahead and say it PERFECT. Call Kelley :)

I don’t have enough words to describe how awesome Kelley Canon Events is! Ever since I met Kelley and Lindsey I realized that they were great professionals with a lot of knowledge and sense of style. Choosing them was definitely the best decision, without them, I wouldn’t have had such a memorable day!
They absolutely helped me to find the best vendors within my budget. Thanks to them, I ended up having the best of the best!
Since Kelley was 7 months pregnant when I hired them, Lindsey helped me with every single step before the big day. She was always on top of things, were extremely responsive and always finding the best options for me.
The day of the Wedding Lindsey and Kelley absolutely rocked! Not only the decoration looked fabulous, but the timeline was perfectly executed, making us enjoy the taste of each moment. At the end of the night, I found all my belongings carefully packed in my room! A part from their professionalism, they are beautiful human beings. Even after the Wedding was over and therefore the contract fulfilled, Lindsey was still helping to get a topper replacement from the Hotel.

I hired Kelley as my onsite coordinator for my December 1, 2012, wedding at the Carnegie Insitution in Washington, D.C. From the beginning, Kelley was extremely flexible and responsive, meeting with me several times and helping me figure out the details for my big day. She was so helpful working with all of my vendors and on the day of our wedding, she executed our timeline flawlessly. She and her assistant, Lindsey, were both so professional onsite and made sure everything went according to plan...from the hotel, to the church, to the Carnegie. The set up at the Carnegie was gorgeous and we heard nothing but great feedback from our guests. I highly recommend Kelley Cannon Events for any future brides!

Despite being in such high demand Kelley and Lindsey took a lot of time and care going over all the details and contracts. They delt with all of the things a bride and her mother do not want to deal with, and the day could not have gone smoother. Lindsey made sure everything was on time and flowing while exercising a calm patience that kept everyone smiling. Because of Kelley Cannon Events our day was full of style and we got to be guests!

I don't know how people get married without Kelley! Although we hired Kelley for partial planning services, she did so much more than that. Kelley had a hand in every decision I made and helped us with all of our vendors. Her suggestions, organization and creative ideas made our wedding such a success. I most appreciated her day of coordination - I did not worry about a thing on our wedding day and everything went smoothly (and if it didn't, no one noticed!).

When my daughter had to move her wedding date up 6 weeks because of her sister's pregnancy, she was panicked. A quick call and meeting with Lindsey Farrel with Kelley Cannon Events, quieted her concerns! Lindsey became my daughter's confidant as they created what was to become a successful and very magical, memorable event. Her guidance and attention to the detail were invaluable during the planning but I cannot imagine not having her help (and Kelley's) on the day-of. There are so many moving parts! Having a wedding planner lets the bride (and the MOB) enjoy the day! Thanks, Lindsey!

She provided me so many amazing vendor recommendations and was there whenever I needed to ask questions or needed advice. There were so many details I did not think about and I am so happy Kelley was there to tell me what I was forgetting. Kelley attended my final walk-through meeting with my caterer and venue and was instrumental in helping me make the right decisions. Kelley and Lindsay took care of everything on the day of my wedding - from confirming all vendor arrangements, to setting up all of my decorations, to passing our bouquets and boutonnieres. Kelley even came to my hotel to check in on me while I was getting ready. Kelley is so sweet and professional and is amazing at what she does! Thank you for making my special day perfect!

I wish I could select 6 out of 5 stars for Kelley. She was, in the case of my wedding, an absolute necessity. We only hired her for day-of coordinating, but she was still in contact with us months before as vendor contracts came in, schedules were drafted, and even to make recommendations for things my husband and I hadn't been able to find ourselves. I get easily stressed on top of the normal stress that brides get, so to have someone else to direct the rehearsal and the wedding itself was such a relief. I didn't have to worry about when vendors arrived, decorating, paying vendors, and she even drove all of the gifts and leftovers to our hotel when it was all over. I'd love to work with her again someday, but of course since I'm happily married I doubt I'd ever need her again xD

Hiring Kelley was the best money I spent for my wedding! I hired her for "month of" planning help, but she was available to answer questions prior to that. I am not the most detail oriented bride, so it was nice to have someone that was. Kelley was kind, professional, calm, and organized. I appreciated her level head. The timeline she made was a lifesaver. She always knew what questions to ask, which helped me because I was always worried I would overlook something. DEFINITELY check her out!

We had to change things around due to the weather two days before the wedding and Lindsey was on it! She contacted all of our vendors to make sure everyone knew about the change and ensured that everything would go smoothly and stick to the time line. After all of the planning you put into your wedding yourself you want to be able to enjoy it on the day of and that's what I was able to do because of our day of wedding coordinator Lindsey.

I used Kelley Cannon for day-of wedding coordination and I can’t write enough good things about her and her company. From day one, I was impressed by her knowledge, professionalism, and down-to-earth nature. When I told my fiancé I wanted to get a day-of coordinator, he responded that it was a waste of money. However, after the wedding was all said and done, he kept saying what a good idea getting help was. We both were pretty impressed by how much she actually helped us and set our mind at ease. We didn’t really have to think about anything other than enjoying our day. She was able to handle whatever was thrown at her (and there were some obstacles) with ease and made everything run seamlessly. What I valued the most was that she spoke on my behalf to vendors and asked questions I didn’t even know I should ask. That was EXTREMELY helpful. Overall, I feel like Kelley Cannon Events was the best vendor I chose.

However, after the wedding was all said and done, he kept saying what a good idea getting help was. We both were pretty impressed by how much she actually helped us and set our mind at ease. We didn’t really have to think about anything other than enjoying our day. She was able to handle whatever was thrown at her (and there were some obstacles) with ease and made everything run seamlessly. What I valued the most was that she spoke on my behalf to vendors and asked questions I didn’t even know I should ask. That was EXTREMELY helpful. Overall, I feel like Kelley Cannon Events was the best vendor I chose. Read less

Kelley Cannon is a great wedding planner. My husband and I both agree that our wedding was truly perfect. We and all of our family and friends had a great time. It has been a few months since the wedding and we are still receiving compliments. We also received multiple phone calls the next day with people describing the wedding as "the best one they have ever been to" which made us both very happy since we know they did not have to say that.

Also, all of Kelley's recommended vendors exceeded our expectations. The flowers were beautiful (some of the centerpieces were used during a church service the next day), the cake was delicious (the people w/ gluteen free diets also complimented the cupcakes), the candy/popcorn bar was a hit, hair and make-up on everyone came out great, the officiant made it personal but kept it short and sweet which what we wanted and my favorite was the DJ - he was exactly what we were looking for.

We really could not have done it without the help of Kelley (really we were engaged for 2 years and had nothing planned) !!! Kelley's guidance and vision allowed us to have a picture perfect day!

Kelley Cannon is the best wedding planner ever! We only had three months to plan our wedding and would never have been able to pull it off without her. Her attention to detail, responsiveness and down to earth personality made the whole experience enjoyable. Kelley went above and beyond our expectations and she does a great job of taking the stress out of planning. All of her vendor recommendations were excellent. She’s so creative and does a fabulous job taking your vision and making it reality. My husband (so fun to say that now) and I couldn’t have been happier with how everything turned out and would absolutely recommend her services. Not only will you be happy, you’ll feel like you’ve made a great friend along the way.

We hired Kristen at Kelly Cannon’s events for our day of coordinator and were so thankful that we did. As Kristen and Kelly explained to us, having an event coordinator the day of is like having insurance that your wedding goes well. That is exactly what Kristen did for us. Towards the day of we were beginning to get more and more worried that our on sight coordinator at our hotel would be able to handle everything we had planned. We wanted to make sure that there was someone there at our rehearsal to tell us were to stand and what to do. We also wanted to make sure that my family and I wouldn’t be stressed out the day of with talking to vendors and putting out fires. Because of Kristen I had no idea about any drama going on behind the scenes. She texted me and my husband separately that morning to make sure we were ok. The entire day I was stress free because Kristen was off talking care of EVERYTHING. She helped to gather my family when it was needed, talked to the vendors at the end of the night to take care of payments, and was constantly checking up on me. My mother my husband and I were thrilled that Kristen was there to make our day stress free.

Everyone needs Kelley Cannon and her team at Kelley Cannon Events in their life. My husband and I met Kelley and Carla at a wedding event a month before we were engaged and the minute we were engaged we called Kelley and hired her for partial planning. Kelley made planning the wedding so easy. I am a slight control freak and Kelley was able to talk me off the crazy ledge more than a few times. We found our photography (Anne Robert Photography –BEST.PHOTOGRAPHER.EVER) and our florist (Wicked Willow –awesome flowers-no really they were amazing!) through her. The weekend of the wedding I had nothing to do but show up with a manicure. Everyone kept asking how I was so calm and my response was, “I have Kelley”. I never had to worry about anything. Kelley saved the day with my escort cards and they were amazing. The morning of my wedding my biggest concern was making sure I had breakfast for the girls in the suite. I literally had no worries; Kelley called in the morning to check on my, called and confirmed all my vendors and kept everyone on time. I got to sit back with a glass of champagne and just enjoy my day. At the wedding Carla made sure I got a bite to eat, helped with my bustle, and pretty much made sure that no one and nothing bothered me. Kelley Cannon Events is needed for each and every wedding.

She was professional and responsible, yet friendly and fun to work with. She suggested great vendors and was open to people and places we suggested that she'd never worked with before. Hiring Kelley will only mean good things for your special day.

We worked with Karla from Kelley Cannon Events for day of coordination and could not have been more pleased. From the minute we met Karla, she was available to provide guidance, advice and experience on every aspect of the wedding. While most of the big decisions were made when we started working with her, Karla took the time to learn all the details of our wedding vision and become familiar with our vendors/contracts so she could ensure that our wedding day was fabulous - and it was! We had a rainy, cold day but Karla was prepared and took charge in making sure all of the vendors knew the details for our plan b. As a bride, I didn't have to worry about anything - not when the car service got in accident, not when flowers were missing, not when the tent starting leaking...Karla rose to every challenge and thanks to her and our other wonderful vendors every detail of our wedding was perfect! I would highly recommend working with Karla and Kelley Cannon Events for day of coordination - she will make certain you have the wedding you've always wanted!

We worked with Kristen as a day-of-coordinator and we couldn't have been more impressed with her work. Hiring Kristen was one of the best decisions we made and it was money incredibly well spent because it allowed us to enjoy the day and not worry about the details and little issues that inevitably came up. She provided much needed advice and took over managing the contracts right before the wedding, which allowed us to focus on the fun parts. The weather did not cooperate with us on the day of the wedding (it was freezing and raining), and she seamlessly came up with a great way of rearranging our space to accommodate all the events inside (and quickly learned how to operate gas tent heaters). We forgot a basket to put cards in, and, again, she came to the rescue and came up with a solution on her own. The cupcake store tried to deliver the cupcakes to the billing address instead of the wedding venue, and again, Kristen worked all of that out, and the cupcakes were there when they needed to be. Her demeanor is perfect for dealing with stressed out people and testy family members. According to my now husband (!!!), Kristen was organized, thorough, detail-oriented, and reliable, and she was the most value-added vendor.

Kelley was AMAZING! I had originally hired her for day-of planning, but after my venue fell through - my husband and I opted for the full wedding planning package. Kelley was ALWAYS available and quick to respond. She took on the tasks I didn't want anything to do with and let me have fun with the creative details I loved. She negotiated on my behalf, reviewed contracts, made suggestions for sticky family issues and organized EVERYTHING the day of the wedding. If something went wrong that day - I didn't have a clue until it was already resolved and the day had come and gone! Thanks Kelley!

We cannot speak highly enough of both Karla Mitchell and Kelley of Kelley Cannon Events, We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with both Karla as our full planner and wedding designer and with Kelley for our day-of coordination. Kelley and Karla are both joys to work with independently, but together they are a dream team. Karla’s professionalism and attention to detail blew me away from the beginning of the process and bear in mind, dear reader, that dealing with me as a bride was no small task. I was probably a wedding planner’s worst nightmare, as I was nervous, indecisive and upon getting engaged, I had not thought for a single minute about what our wedding might be like; in a word, totally clueless. Not to mention that I knew we would have a limited budget to contend with as well as the fact that we decided in February that we wanted to get married in July of the same year. So when I finally sat down with Karla to start the planning process, I was a fragile pile of neuroses, lost adrift in a sea of bridal magazines. Karla assured me that she was there to help and was able from the start to ask the most targeted questions that helped both me and my then- fiancé figure out exactly what kind of wedding day we really wanted. It seemed that without us really knowing where we were going, Karla immediately “got” what was really important to us as well as the look and feel that fit us as a couple. With a concept in mind, Karla dove into planning an overall design by building a mood board that included the elements of the wedding we hoped to achieve. She was skilled at making thoughtful suggestions of things we might like and was able to amazingly bring to life all of our ideas and wants. Karla has a true eye for thoughtful, savvy design and considers even the tiniest of details. I can’t tell you how many guests commented on how beautiful our whole wedding was; a few commented that they had the feeling they were in a picturesque ad, as everything was so fresh and thoughtfully planned. In the weeks after our wedding, I would sometimes glance at the final style board Karla designed and marvel at how the day truly ended up looking and feeling exactly how we had envisioned it and it was all thanks to Karla’s hard work. At the same time, Karla was crucial at every logistical step. Karla has a no-nonsense approach to planning especially when it comes to selecting vendors. Karla always had our budget in mind and helped navigate us to the best vendors for us. She reviewed and kept our contracts, helped remind us of deadlines and proactively dealt with contacting and following up with all vendors saving me an enormous amount of time and stress. Leading up to the wedding, Karla coordinated with the vendors to ensure a smooth day so that I did not have to worry about a thing. It was so invaluable to know that everything was taken cared of and that all I had to do was enjoy the special day. As our day-of coordinator, Kelley was the first to arrive at our venue and the last to leave, making sure that everything was on time, in place and that everyone was happy. It was a joy and such a comfort having her there. Overall, we could not have had the truly fabulous wedding we had without Karla and Kelley and recommend them to everyone we know!!!

To say our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without Karla wouldn’t do justice to her performance. From the moment that I met with her and Kelley, I knew that I would be hiring Kelley Cannon Events. During the initial meetings, they made me feel at ease, as if I was chatting with old friends. Karla immediately demonstrated professionalism, enthusiasm and incredible attention to detail. I hired Karla as my day-of coordinator, but the effort that she put in throughout the whole process far exceeded my expectations. Karla was responsive to e-mails months before the wedding, and reached out frequently to check in and gather information. She even came with us to the venue for a vendor walkthrough about a month prior to the wedding, and also ran the rehearsal the day prior to the wedding. She coordinated with all of our vendors, saving so much time, energy, and headache. Karla took ownership of the schedules for the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception, always accommodating what worked best for me, my husband and family. Every step of the way I felt like I was working with my older sister, as she guided us through the various decisions that needed to be made. At the event, my husband and I did not have to worry about any details. Karla made sure we were where we needed to be at the right time – I can’t imagine who would have handled all of these items had we not hired her. Karla made demands of vendors the day of the wedding that we found out about only after everything was over – she handled everything from air conditioning issues to a damaged wedding cake. She even dealt with vases that needed to be returned to the florist the following day. I highly recommend Karla for whatever level of service you need. This was the best decision we made as it relates to wedding planning. She exceeded our expectations, and will exceed yours as well. I’m looking forward to seeing Kelley Cannon Events at the wedding of one of my best friends in fall 2012!

Kelley of Kelley Cannon Events was an absolute rock-star planner. She was so responsive, so supportive, so creative, and so enthusiastic, and she really brought together a team of vendors that made our wedding day just perfect. It was gorgeous, it was fun, and it was low-stress because I knew she had everything under control. Kelley set up and attended every appointment with me (even picked me up from the metro for some since I don't have a car!), gave great advice when I had etiquette questions, and in general was just a delight to work with. I recommend her whole-heartedly!! (She was also one of the most affordable planners we interviewed, so you will get a big bang for your buck!)

Kelley Cannon was our amazing wedding planner! We hired Kelley for her "Day of Coordination" service and we could not imagine our wedding without her. Kelley made our wedding day so memorable and, more importantly, stress-free!

We met with Kelley several times before our wedding day. She was quick to respond to our emails and calls. In addition, Kelley provided us with a lot of ideas that were "outside of the box". When you're planning for a wedding (especially for 230 guests!), it's easy to forget the simple things. Kelley was there to put things into perspective for us and she gave us a lot of wonderful, easy, and affordable ideas for our wedding. We felt so comfortable with Kelley because she was always there for guidance and support.

Kelley's focus and attention to detail are remarkable. She contacted all of our vendors to ensure that everything was in order for the wedding day. She went above and beyond her call of duty. Our friends and family noticed Kelley's "behind the scene" work and commented on how wonderful she is.

We have already referred Kelley to other friends who are getting married in the DC area. She truly loves her work and is an incredible person. We could not have asked for a better wedding planner.

Kelley Cannon Events was the best wedding investment we made!

When you're planning for a wedding (especially for 230 guests!), it's easy to forget the simple things. Kelley was there to put things into perspective for us and she gave us a lot of wonderful, easy, and affordable ideas for our wedding. We felt so comfortable with Kelley because she was always there for guidance and support.

Kelley's focus and attention to detail are remarkable. She contacted all of our vendors to ensure that everything was in order for the wedding day. She went above and beyond her call of duty. Our friends and family noticed Kelley's "behind the scene" work and commented on how wonderful she is.

We have already referred Kelley to other friends who are getting married in the DC area. She truly loves her work and is an incredible person. We could not have asked for a better wedding planner.

Kelley Cannon Events was the best wedding investment we made! Read less

I cannot recommend Kelley Cannon Events highly enough! I heard about Kelley through a co-worker who was getting married a month before me, and I'm so lucky I did. As my partner and I already lived together and had a child together, we did not plan a long engagement or over the top celebration. But we still wanted a lovely day in a beautiful place with family, good friends and delicious food. Kelley got that.
We had 3 months to plan our wedding and Kelley was a lifesaver. I had already looked into location (we wanted a Saturday luncheon) and Kelley confirmed that 2941 would be great for our purposes. Based on our ideas, Kelley quickly suggested choices for officiant, flowers, music, hair, makeup, etc. Everything came together perfectly. A minor snafu the day of the wedding was handled immediately by Kelley and her assistant so no one was even aware. That is one of the many reasons why she is invaluable.

My husband and I got married 1.5 months after our engagement.
I can honestly say I don't know how we would have managed to pull off a seamless wedding with such a quick planning period without Kelley!

Kelley is a lovely person to work with. She is fun and makes you feel like a best friend really sharing your desire to have a perfect wedding. She was our best wedding day investment.

We hired her for "day-of" services but she went above and beyond the call of duty. We give her an A+/5 star rating for all of the standard things you would expect from a wedding planner (the ratings above) But I wanted to share 2 examples of why Kelley so stellar.

1) Kelley advised me to do my hair & makeup trial way sooner than I did. Because of my work schedule, I had to take a chance and do my trial the week of the wedding. I ended up having a terrible trial and repeat trial (at the same place) with only 2 days till wedding day.
I had already signed a contract with this particular salon and they were very clear I could not get out of it. I sent Kelley a picture of my horrible hair style and told her I was freaking out.
Kelley was so calm and told me not to worry. She called this terrible salon, somehow got me and my party out of the contract, and scheduled us with a fabulous hair (Hair by Jules) and makeup (Kim Reyes) team the day before the wedding. My stress and worry melted away. I looked and felt amazing on my wedding day. Kelley saved the day!
2) I was overwhelmed with details and forgot to do the signs for our desert bar, the gift table, and the jar where guests could leave "love notes" to bride and groom. Once again, Kelley jumped right in and made beautiful signs herself so I could relax and cross that off my worry list.

My point is, if you want to really enjoy the planning process and be stress free on your big day, you need Kelley.

Kelley, THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Kelley Cannon Events was hands down the best investment we made on our wedding! We worked with Karla on Day of Coordination and she was incredibly helpful. Despite the fact, that my husband and I diligently planned our wedding for 14 months there were so many unforeseeable obstacles that came up on our wedding day that Karla was able to quickly and efficiently solve.

On the days leading up to the wedding, I was becoming more and more stressed out. I truly wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to enjoy my wedding after all the work we had put into it BUT I DID enjoy that day and it was thanks to Karla’s impressive skills. On the night of the rehearsal dinner, she introduced herself to our families and bridal party and said that from that moment on she was taking charge and to start directing all questions to her. I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. The night of my wedding was the best night of our lives because we were able to just enjoy ourselves as Karla took care of everything behind the scenes without adding any unnecessary stress to us. Many of our guests actually came up to us and my parents to tell them that our wedding was very well organized.

I truly feel that Day of Coordination is becoming more and more essential at weddings. But in addition, the staff’s professionalism at Kelley Cannon Events is what made our day truly amazing. For example, after meeting with us two weeks before the wedding, Karla realized just how many moving pieces our wedding had and decided to bring on an assistant to make sure our day was executed just like we envisioned. Karla also volunteered herself to run many of our errands when realized how stretched we were like picking up our wedding flowers and even my wedding dress!

We found Kelley Cannon Events’ services were a fantastic value for the cost. Their Day of Coordination package includes so much more than just the wedding day. We had unlimited phone and email consultations with Karla and Kelley throughout the wedding planning process and Karla actually started working on our wedding day logistics and touching bases with our vendors two whole weeks before the event.

If you are considering Day of Coordination, (trust me you should) Kelley Cannon Events will help you make your wedding stress-free and memorable

Kelley Cannon Events really made our wedding so memorable!!! They took care of everything so well that we did not have to worry about a thing! They were patient and so understanding through our whole process, which I am sure was not an easy feat....we had 300+ guests.

On our wedding day, I could not feel more stress-free and at ease knowing that the team was there to help every step of the way from coordinating with vendors to making sure my veil and dress were wrinkle-free...in a word, they are just AWESOME.

Again, thank you (!) from the bottom of our hearts, we will definitely recommend your services to our friends and families getting married soon.

If I could give Kelley more than 5 stars on here I would! My husband and I hired Kelley as our day-of wedding coordinator. Our package included some support leading up to the event, gathering our vendor contracts, assistance at the rehearsal, and day-of coordination of everything (vendor arrival times, set-up and break-down for the ceremony and reception, getting all of the wedding party and family members in the right places at the right times, etc.), but Kelley provided so much more! She was consistently enthusiastic about helping us get our wedding day just right. Although we did not hire her to help book vendors and/or negotiate contracts, that did not stop Kelley from providing several vendor recommendations. In fact, I ended up booking the florist, the officiant, and the hair stylist that she suggested. My husband and I had a wonderful time working with Kelley and are so happy that we hired her. There is no way that our amazing wedding would have gone so smoothly or that we would have been able to enjoy it as much as we did without her. Kelley is down to earth, detail-oriented, and committed to providing excellent service. She thinks of everything and provides a lot of helpful feedback. She was very affordable as well. Should the need arise in the future(for a big birthday or holiday party), I'll hire Kelley again for sure!

Kelley is outstanding! We found her ad online 3 months before our wedding, and when I interviewed her over the phone, she impressed me with her comprehensive approach to day-of wedding coordination. We quickly hired her, and she was infinitely helpful with my final planning stages. She was easily accessible via email and phone throughout, and was able to accommodate my now-husband and my busy schedules. She also provided excellent suggestions for a wedding videographer, whom we promptly hired as well.

During the final month before our wedding, Kelley was extremely supportive in helping me finalize details with our caterer. The caterer was initially quite rigid in her vision of the reception, and Kelley was able to advocate for what I wanted using her extensive experience and exceptional design taste. Kelley also handled the ceremony and reception decorations at both locations, and did everything effortlessly!

In the final week, Kelley and I were able to negotiate a few add-on services to my contract, which simplified the number of tasks that our families needed to finish before the big day. We really appreciated her flexibility, enthusiasm and energy during the stressful days before the wedding! She also directed the ceremony rehearsal and ceremony itself in a way that was low-stress and efficient.

At the reception, I was particularly impressed when Kelley handled all the behind-the-scenes tasks with our caterer, photographer, videographer, florist, and DJ. For example, when guests showed up late but still wanted dinner after the buffet was closed, she arranged for the buffet to reopen and got dinner for them. She also kept to the master schedule and when my husband and I decided to simplify some of the evening activities, she conveyed the message to our vendors and the party was truly seamless.

In short, Kelley is truly excellent -- she knows how to plan a weddding efficiently and beautifully -- it's second-nature for her! My husband and I are so pleased with how the planning and celebrations went, and very grateful for her expertise!

Kelley Cannon was an exceptional planner. She was able to keep everything within 4% (under) our budget - perfect! She handled everything from finding vendors (venue/caterer, rental items, cake, hair, makeup, everything!) to making sure everything ran smoothly on the actual wedding day. She went above and beyond by dealing with vendors who refused to cooperate and who liked to make up the rules as they go. Anything we were uncertain of, she was able to assure us it would be fine, and everything went great! She was quick to reply to emails (sometimes even replying immediately to emails we sent after midnight!) and made the whole process fun instead of having it seem like a job. We were initially on the fence about hiring a planner, but would make the same decision 100 out of 100 times if we had to do it all over again. Anybody who is looking for a planner, or is unsure about whether they need one, should definitely give Kelley a look!

My contact with Kelly Cannon Events began while I was planning my DC wedding from New York. Kelly was very helpful in providing me with a variety of vendors. As a result, I booked almost all of my vendors from Kelly's recommendations. She was very responsive via telephone and email.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to have Karla as our day-of wedding coordinator. Karla was fantastic! During the month before the wedding, Karla was terrific about helping to pull the details of our ceremony and reception together. I was a bit challenged with having an overall vision for our ceremony so she stepped in and gave us great ideas and suggestions. Karla was always prompt in responding to my emails. She is extremely organized and professional. It was great to know that Karla was taking charge of our special day to confirm our vendor deliveries, assist with decorating for our ceremony and working closely with our photographer to keep our wedding day running smoothly. She was also a big help in returning our wedding cake stand to the baker since we were leaving our honeymoon and we wouldn't have been able to return it. Her services were so incredibly valuable and she did a fantastic job! I would absolutely recommend Karla and Kelly Cannon Events.

Kelley was amazing to work with! She has a lot of amazing ideas, especially when you are a bride who wants to step outside of the norm!

Aside from five or six in person meeting, we did all of our communication via email! At a certain point of the planning process, I felt her email responses were slow or non-existent so brought it up to her. After mentioning it once, we never had any other issues. Kelley is a great and as long as you are open and honest with her, you will have a great working relationship!!

On the day of the wedding, she was really impressive!

From coordinating with all of the wedding vendors prior to the day of, to setting up the venue, to flipping the room from ceremony to reception, handling the gifts/cards, helping to cue the less experienced ceremony musicians, keeping the photographer on schedule,making sure me and my husband had midnight snacks, and packing up all of our decorations/props/things and delivering them to our hotel at the end of the night, she was a miracle worker!

Everything went off without a hitch thanks to Kelley and her assistant! I seriously could never thank her enough for making our wedding the BEST and most stress-free day of our lives.

Karla provided day-of coordination for my wedding -- and she was really great to work with. Despite the "day-of" label, she and Kelley were involved in the planning for weeks prior to the wedding. Karla was very helpful in getting the day-of itinerary organized, and her help in coordinating the vendors' arrival times and payments were hugely appreciated. She worked very well with our celebrant, caterer, site manager, and photographer. She was also very involved in and well organized for our rehearsal, and I trusted her completely on the day. I really didn't have to worry about anything -- and I think it was largely because of her (along with my wonderful bridesmaids and parents) that my wedding day was fun and [mostly] stress-free. There were only two minor miscommunications that were hard to anticipate -- one regarding the return of vases to the florist and one regarding flexibility in end time of the DJ (which my now-husband and I had discussed with the DJ separately). I can't really fault Karla, though, for these minor hiccups, since I should've clarified them ahead of time -- and I do believe that she was looking out for our interests the whole time. All in all, the wedding went exceptionally well, and it was a great way to start our married life together! I would definitely recommend Karla and Kelley Cannon Events!

Kelley was our planner for our October wedding. We went with her partial planning package and it was a great deal. Kelley was such a great help and helped us navigate everything from etiquette to vendors. She traveled to antique stores to help find the perfect centerpieces and her connections saved us budget.

I'd highly recommend her -- I truly don't think we could have had the wedding that we did without her!
