Kristen is super sweet and funny and she did an amazing job! We hired her for day-of coordination, but KCE works more like a "month-of" planner. She made sure all of our vendors were in order, worked out our packed wedding timeline to the minute, conducted our rehearsal, and made sure our big day went off smoothly (and it went perfectly!). She even helped our officiant/friend with his entire speech for the ceremony and brought all of our stuff back to our hotel room afterward! Having a day-of coordinator is a must in order to avoid stress and for things to go as planned... and I would highly recommend Kristen! I cannot thank her and KCE enough!

We love Kelley Cannon Events and would give them ten stars if we could! Our guests are still raving about our DC wedding, and we know that we could not have pulled off such a memorable event without the help of Kelley and her team. After meeting with several DC wedding planners who were either way too far outside of our price range or felt we did not jive with personally, we were thrilled to sit down with Kelley. She is a gem of a human and incredibly talented. We were immediately at ease with her- she understood our vision and our budget and was already giving us creative suggestions before we even signed a contract. While we had already picked our venue and some of our vendors, all of them had worked with Kelley before and had the highest praise for her company.

We hired Kelley for partial planning services roughly one year prior to our wedding date and were treated as though we were the only wedding she was planning. Kelley kept us on-task by creating a monthly to-do list and always checked in with us on items that were her responsibility- recommendations, vendor proposals, appointments, etc. For the many more items that were our responsibility, she never made it feel like we asked too many questions or were asking too much of her- she was always quick to offer an opinion or advice when we were indecisive or unsure. Her insights and ability to recommend vendors that would deliver great quality within our price range were invaluable.

Having Kelley Cannon Events on our team in the last month, final week, and day-of the wedding was priceless. Kelley took over the reins, allowing us to enjoy the experience, as opposed to stressing out over all of the details, and we knew we were in good hands. We were able to enjoy our time with all of our relatives and friends that were visiting DC and experience our wedding day without having to manage logistics. By far, this was the best money we spent on our wedding and we could not give a higher recommendation

My husband and I worked with Lindsey Farrell from Kelley Cannon Events. She. Was. Awesome. Lindsey set us completely at ease and helped put out fires long before we even knew they might happen. Our wedding day went seamlessly, and, thanks to Lindsey, we were able to just sit back and enjoy it as it unfolded without worrying about any logistics. Lindsey is thorough, charismatic, knowledgeable, and insightful. When my husband and I were clueless about certain aspects of our design (e.g., flowers), Lindsey jumped in and held guide us through the process, and we couldn't have been happier with how it turned out. Hiring Lindsey was definitely one of the best decisions we made during the planning process, and we couldn't recommend her more highly to couples looking for a planner, whether partial or full.

If you're planning a wedding in or around the DC area, Kelley Cannon should be your go-to planner or coordinator. We used Kelley Cannon Events for day-of coordination, but knowing what I do now, I would have hired her team for our entire wedding planning process. From the initial consultation through the wedding day, Kelley was extremely professional and helpful. I don't know what I would have done at the ceremony and reception without her there to handle the last-minute details. Her team can be trusted completely - we were thrilled with the results of our wedding thanks in large part to Kelley Cannon Events!

I cannot stress ENOUGH the important of having a coordinator for the day of your wedding! I did most of the planning myself throughout my engagement, and it was manageable but as the day got closer I knew there was no way I was going to get married without a day-of coordinator. Kelley was SO helpful. I mean she helped and guided with literally every detail of the day. She came to my house before my rehearsal dinner collected every single item that needed to be set up, and everything was absolutely perfect the next day - exactly how I had things pictured in my head. She even tracked down a couple Advil for me to take halfway through dinner when I got a headache. She was really awesome, and I was almost completely stress-free knowing she was on the forefront taking care of everything. My bridesmaids were even able to be stress-free! Amazing job Kelley, and thank you for everything!

From the first day we me Kelley, we knew she would help make our wedding an unforgettable day. We immediately felt comfortable with her advice and judgement, and trusted her instinct and years of experience. Right from the start, Kelley understood and connected with our vision for our wedding day. My husband and I wanted to create an event celebrating not us, but the union of our families and the joy of our friends. Kelley helped to calm our nerves at each step of the way, and gave us advice we could trust on where to splurge and save. Incredibly detail-oriented, Kelley and her entire team were especially phenomenal during the day of the wedding. Kelley truly gave us a priceless gift - a completely stress-free day, where every detail was accounted for and handled by someone who quickly became not a hired vendor, but a dear friend. In the end, our friends and family enjoyed the evening, were impressed by the team of partners led by Kelley, and my husband and I felt truly blessed with an unforgettable and perfect wedding.

We worked with Lindsey as our planner and she was fantastic. She does a great job of responding to and handling bumps in the road and was able to help us get some better deals with our chosen vendors than we would have been able to secure on our own. She's a very pleasant person to work with and is great to have in your corner during contract negotiation. She clearly knows how to handle people very well, and has worked with many vendors before, so she already has good working relationships in place. The vendors we worked with all had nothing but compliments for Kelley Cannon and Lindsey in particular. They worked to not only impress us, but her as well, which is a tremendous help when you're working over the small details of a contract.

She'll get to know your style and tastes and will work to keep your vision of the day unified and on-course. The 'day-of' she was readily available and handled a couple of minor crises without involving us at all. I would highly recommend Kelley Cannon and Lindsey in particular to anyone who is going to need an event coordinated. I have recommended her to my friends, and I know my wife has as well. Kelley Cannon offers a fantastic value, very helpful spreadsheets and lists, and very professional staff.

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!
