I found Kerrie when I was looking at wedding blogs and saw prior weddings that she helped plan and design. I chose her because I absolutely love her style - classic, elegant, and romantic. It also was icing on the cake that she was always prompt, professional, honest, and open to my ideas. From first contact she responded promptly and expectations were set. She helped me keep on track with my timeline and helped to make sure all plans went smoothly. She had trusted vendors whom she worked with but also open to any vendors I found. When she gave her input it was without imposing or taking over. She just wanted to bring up things that could go wrong from her WEALTH of EXPERIENCE. This was most evident when it came to the day of the wedding. There were no major issues which I attest to her coordination but I still felt like she was a lifesaver. I did not have to worry about any details which allowed me to enjoy our day. This is key because the day truly is a blur and feels like it was a dream the following day. If my husband and I go all out to celebrate a vow renewal, I'll have to ask for Kerrie's assistance. =)

Kerrie was an absolute dream-come-true wedding planner. I interviewed many wedding/event planners when I got engaged, but I knew from the moment I spoke with Kerrie that she was the perfect one. We hired her for the "month of" package, and I was blown away by her enthusiasm, energy, organization, and willingness to always go above and beyond. She helped us save a lot of money through her various connections with wedding vendors (lighting, linens, florals, chairs), and she always had numerous quality suggestions about any other detail that popped up over the year (invitations, desserts, officiants, the band's staging, candles, vases - you name it). Her wedding day timeline was incredibly detailed and flowed better than I could have ever imagined - timing and the flow of the day (from early morning until the last dance of the night) is incredibly important, and I still get compliments from guests about how well-timed everything was, both for the guests and for the bridal parties. She was on top of it! Kerrie is spectacular at listening to the bride and groom's visions and desires, and offering her opinion and giving her advice at the appropriate and most important times. Every single detail that was discussed ahead of the wedding day (and boy did I give her a looong list of details and items) was executed perfectly. I am so grateful that I did not have to worry about a single thing on our wedding day, because Kerrie and her fabulous team took care of literally everything. The entire evening went off without a hitch, and I still, two months later, cannot believe how much care, detail and effort Kerrie put into our day. We still get compliments on how stunning, unique, personal, and fun our wedding was for our guests, and we all had the time of our lives. Every day, I wish I could go back and look at our ceremony and reception again and take it all in again. It was the most magical setting I have ever seen. It gives me chills. Kerrie is extraordinary :)

Our wedding was a little over a month ago and I can without a doubt say that Kerrie was our best wedding vendor. And that's saying something because we had a pretty amazing wedding in Malibu at the Adamson House. I think we found Kerrie on Yelp and we also liked the fact that she had done a wedding at our venue before.

We hired her for the month of service but she still helped us out a bunch with vendor referrals and other small things like that leading up to the wedding. Getting all the big contracts out of the way was the easy part for me but Kerrie really swept into action once we were about a month out.

I was amazed at how much work she was able to do in such a short time. I am a pretty laid back guy but I literally didn't worry about one thing in the month leading up to the wedding. Her prices were very reasonable too considering how much work she did. I think she could probably charge a little bit more if she wanted too and it would still be worth it.

Overall, we recommend Kerrie big time to plan your wedding. We really didn't have even one tiny complaint about her: she was always punctual, nice/friendly and always very knowledgeable. She clearly knows what she's doing and I wish her all the best of luck going forward with her business.

Kerrie was professional right from the start! She has reasonable prices and whatever package you choose she works her behind off and makes sure every penny is spent well. Kerrie was always there for me when I needed to speak to her, and made sure I was calm during the entire planning process. Any problem that arose, Kerrie sure handled it and put me at ease. On the day of, Kerrie was punctual to a tee and my wedding started on time!!! (To the minute may I add). If I ever have another event to be planned, I will definitely use Kerrie again.

I can not say enough great things about Kerrie. First and foremost her network of vendors are out of this world. She is extremely organized, efficient, and sticks to her timelines. My husband and I live in Texas and planned the majority of our wedding over emails. Kerrie made the entire process streamlined and easy and I knew she understood my vision and I could trust her with all of the details. The day of the wedding could not have gone smoother thanks to Kerrie keeping everyone on schedule. She handled all the logistics behind the scenes so that I could enjoy my special day stress free. I could not imagine my wedding with out Kerrie. She made my wedding dream a reality and I am so grateful I found her. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

My husband and I dated for seven years before we got married, so I had a long time to think about my wedding day vision. I knew I wanted to get married at The Resort at Pelican Hill and like many brides, I didn't think I needed a wedding planner. After all, I'd been creating wedding boards for a few years on Pinterest and thought I could do it all. :) Luckily though, Pelican Hill requires all brides that get married there to have a wedding planner and I'm so glad they have that requirement!

Since we live in Texas, our wedding was a destination wedding for us and the majority of our guests. I hired Kerrie before I even met her in person and from the moment I talked to her on the phone, I knew I was going to be in good hands! Kerrie was invaluable, especially when it came to recommending vendors since I couldn't meet them all. She helped me organize a team of all star vendors and our wedding day turned out perfectly because she was there to manage all of them! Until you get married you don't realize how much of a production a wedding is and we only had 125 guests! From the photography to the lighting to the chair rentals to the flowers to the music, every vendor brings their team of people and all of a sudden you realize that wedding planners are like the ultimate backstage managers! There is so much hustle and bustle the few weeks leading up to your wedding and especially the day of. Without a wedding planner, brides are the ones that have to coordinate and field phone calls from everyone on what should be the most beautiful and special time of their lives. Due to Kerrie's knowledge, organizational skills and calm demeanor, she kept the whole wedding party (including crazy groomsmen) in line and on schedule. Our wedding turned out even more beautiful than I could have ever imagined and we were able to enjoy our wedding day with all of our family and friends without any stress. Kerrie's the best and I'm so glad she was our wedding planner!

Kerrie is wonderful! I hired her a year before my wedding and had a fantastic experience. She worked tirelessly to help me plan not only my wedding, but the entire wedding weekend. This was no small task as we essentially constructed our venue from the ground up. She consistently went above and beyond. Our families were very impressed.

Additionally, as a bit of a stress case, Kerrie was always one step ahead of me. Anything I was wondering about, she had answers before I even formulated the questions and always took the time to make sure my worries were eased. She was professional, fun, and assembled and coordinated a fabulous team of vendors. Hats off to Kerrie! Love her and would recommend her to anyone!

I knew the minute we got engaged that we’d need a wedding planner, and the first person I contacted was Kerrie. I hadn’t been to too many weddings before, but the one that stood out to me was my matron of honor’s. It looked straight out of a magazine and my friends looked like they were having the best time ever. So it was a no-brainer to hire Kerrie to achieve that same result. It gave us such peace of mind to know that we were in good hands from day 1.

From her great vendor recommendations to her poise and organization throughout the whole process, Kerrie was just what we needed. You may think that reading enough blogs and looking through countless photos you’ll know exactly how to pick things and set things up, but what Kerrie has is the professional knowledge and experience to communicate that effectively to each of the vendors and make sure it is all executed properly. I’ll echo what others have said here that each vendor went out of their way to say how awesome Kerrie is and how they love working together because they know the day will be perfect. And it was true. I have no idea how much work went on behind the scenes on the wedding day – everything was just done and in place and Kerrie didn’t look like she even broke a sweat. As is the common theme with Kerrie’s brides, I truly enjoyed every second of my wedding day and was able to attend my own cocktail hour and eat all my dinner! Thank you Kerrie!

I do not know what I would have done without Kerrie! She made it possible for me to be a calm, relaxed and stress free bride on my wedding day!! I knew that with Kerrie in charge, I did not have to worry about a thing. And, I was able to just enjoy being a bride and savor every moment! Thanks to Kerrie, our wedding ran seamlessly and without a hitch.

She was also a calming force and listening ear throughout the entire wedding planning process and especially during emotional times when I was overwhelmed and beyond stressed! She always led me in the right direction and gave me peace of mind. Kerrie's help, expertise and knowledge were invaluable throughout the many steps and pieces that go into planning a wedding. She gave me many great vendor referrals that were within my budget and wonderful to work with. Kerrie is so detail oriented, organized and always got back to me even if it was at midnight. She always went above and beyond her call of duty and even what was in our contract including an extra meeting with my husband and I a week or so before our wedding.

I highly highly recommend Kerrie! Trust me; you could not be in better hands than in Kerrie's! She truly is amazing!

Being a fellow wedding planner I understand how hectic and involved the day of a wedding can be! There is so much going on; coordinating all the vendors, details setup, adhering to timelines, dealing with cranky relatives, you name it! So it was extremely important for me to just enjoy the experience of being the bride and not "work" my own wedding. We hired Kerrie to be our coordinator for our wedding at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach. She knows that venue like the back of her hand, which made us feel very at ease. On the day of the wedding when the chairs were being setup, I counted all of them to make sure they were right, and then I said to myself, "Stop. Be the Bride. Don't worry about it, Kerrie has this totally under control." And from then on, I was totally calm and didn't give a second thought to any of the day-of details. I just went with the flow and let Kerrie do what she does best. And it was amazing! Kerrie doesn't blink an eye! She truly allowed my husband and I to enjoy our party! We had THE best time. We didn't have to worry about a thing. Everything was perfect and one of my favorite parts was when she took the two of us in to see our reception before guests entered. It was unbelievable! So perfect and beautiful and it was awesome to be able to take it all in and see how it all came together. After the wedding, what my husband and I commented on the most was how Kerrie allowed us to be guests at our own wedding. She gently guided us from one thing to the next as it was time, and handled the vendors that needed to be handled! Thank you Kerrie!!! Our wedding was absolutely perfect, and thank you for all your hard work!

She gently guided us from one thing to the next as it was time, and handled the vendors that needed to be handled! Thank you Kerrie!!! Our wedding was absolutely perfect, and thank you for all your hard work! Read less

I have been waiting 2 years to write this review, and I now have the opportunity to share with the world just how amazing Kerrie is!

My fiance and I hired Kerrie 2 years before our wedding to provide wedding planning and coordination. Hands down, it was the best wedding decision we made. We are both type A detail-oriented personalities, and Kerrie exceeded our high expectations. From the first meeting, we knew that Kerrie was friendly, stylish, and in-control. We embarked on the rest of the wedding planning process in good hands.

Kerrie provided us with a list of her A-team vendors in our budget, and we went with every one of her suggestions. Each of the vendors she selected was outstanding, and I will be leaving fantastic reviews for them as well. Not surprisingly, each vendor sang Kerrie's praises and told us how lucky we were to have her on our team. Throughout the planning process, she always responded to phone calls within a few hours and emails within 24 hours. No request was ever too trivial, and she took on several tasks that were not in our contract. We met with her several times in person, and each time she was well-prepared and had a good grasp on the details specific to our wedding, which is impressive considering the number of weddings that she must plan each year.

Where Kerrie blew us away was in her day-of coordination. She had an unbelievable timeline that kept everyone on time and on track. Everything ran so smoothly with her in charge. My husband and I were able to enjoy our wedding knowing that she had everything under control. Her execution was so spectacular that we actually were able to enjoy cocktail hour with our guests and eat our entire dinner, rare occurrences for most wedding couples.

This is a long review, but it only touches the surface on how we feel about Kerrie. Not only is she is an enthusiastic and giving cheerleader, but she also has the organizational and leadership skills necessary execute the perfect wedding. If you are even considering a wedding coordinator, please do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with Kerrie! Then book her for your wedding! You won't be disappointed!!!

I hired Kerrie 15 months prior to my wedding. I interviewed other wedding planners but she was the one I clicked with and felt most comfortable with. I hired her for full service wedding planning. I knew what I wanted my wedding to look like but was not sure how to execute it. Kerrie made my day magical!!

Kerrie put me in touch with the best vendors in the industry and she was very cautious of my budget. She also attended meetings with me such as flowers, food tasting, etc. She was always there to help me out and keep me organized I appreciated everything she did!

On the wedding day she brought in 4 assistants to help me and my husband get ready, take pictures, eat, etc. She did not miss a beat! All my friends and family were commenting on how relaxed I was in the bridal suite that's because I had Kerrie on my side!

If you are looking for someone who will be super organized, bring your vision to life, and be a good friend hire Kerrie she is all that and MORE!!!

Thanks Kerrie!! You are awesome!!

Kerrie was our wedding planner and coordinator for my wedding on 2-18-2012. We cannot say enough good things about this kind, capable woman. She is all that you hope your wedding planner will be: organized, creative, firm, caring, personable, and very knowledgeable.

Kerrie's advice and knowledge about vendors and other wedding necessities were instrumental for our big day. We were more than satisfied with everyone she put us in touch with, and she always provided us with multiple options. She was extremely organized from the first day we hired her, and often kept me from feeling overwhelmed during the planning process (she clearly knows how to help a bride enjoy the little things!) On that day, everyone commented on how carefree and happy I looked - Kerrie gave me the greatest gift a bride can get on her wedding day: peace of mind.

My new husband and I feel a great deal of gratitude towards Kerrie for helping to make our wedding the wedding of our dreams. Kerrie executed our vision with careful precision, and we highly recommend her to anyone who needs help planning a wedding! Thanks Kerrie!

Like most, I thought... how hard is it to plan a wedding... and after much arm twisting I still wasn't fully convinced. However in retrospect acquiring a planner, in particular Kerrie, was the best decision we made.

On the run up Kerrie's clear passion simply ignited our excitement for our big day. She was a constant driving force whose fantastic vendor knowledge and experience converted our unique dreams into a reality. You would not believe what Kerrie can do to an empty field ontop of a mountain!

Then came the big day... many many people have asked what were the hiccups and was it stressful but with Kerrie's attention to detail, thoroughness and detailed direction ensured that the day was relaxed and simply perfect. The most advice we got from friends and family was to try and carve out time for spend with one another however the wedding was so flawlessly planned we got to spend so much quality time with not only each other but with our guests also.

Kerrie makes a beautiful moment divine and the mrs and I couldn't have wished for a more perfect person to guide us through the most memorable day of our lives. Thank you Kerrie and to everyone else... An incredible service in which I would thoroughly recommend!

I hired Kerrie to provide month of wedding coordination and she went above and beyond my expectations. She is well worth the money and saved us a lot of headaches and time.
I planned my wedding in california from out of state and Kerrie coordinated all my vendor meetings efficiently into 1 day so that I could fly in for a weekend and meet all of the vendors. She referred me to great vendors and also allowed us to secure discounts with those vendors.
Kerrie's organization is superb as I found that she would always remember all of the details we had discussed and accurate with the terms of our vendor contracts.
The week of my wedding, my event coordinator at my venue went on leave for jury duty without informing us. While I was stressing out, Kerrie stayed calm and told me that with her on the team, the wedding will be a success. She reached out to multiple contacts at our venue and made sure that our wedding would proceed without a hitch.
On the day of the wedding, I knew that I could depend on Kerrie and just enjoy my day and that's what I did. She even gave my husband and I a few moments in a hectic day to enjoy the sunset together alone!
I could not say enough to Kerrie's skills as a wedding coordinator. She is not only organized, creative as well as efficient but she is such a genuine, warm person. She always made me feel like I had her full attention and that I was her only client.
I highly recommend Kerrie to anyone trying to plan their wedding!

I hired Kerrie within the first month of our engagement to provide month-of wedding coordination services. Hiring her was one of the best decisions we made in vendor selection, and I feel that we not only invested in her wedding coordination services but also a peace of mind knowing that she will make sure the wedding day is smooth and disaster free.

Kerrie went above and beyond what was outlined in our contract. For example, she attended an in person meeting with our florist, which counted as our one vendor meeting in the contract, and she additionally participated in a second vendor meeting via telephone conference with our DJ/lighting vendor. Her participation was extremely helpful as she knew what kind of questions to ask and also insisted on the most appropriate equipment based on our contract. This exceeded my expectations and it made me feel that she really cared for the success of our wedding.

Kerrie has a lot of expertise in the wedding industry. Being able to contact her throughout the wedding process was so helpful because she offered a lot of suggestions. She knew all the questions that were important to ask vendors, and she always can recommend vendors to you. Another benefit of having Kerrie as your planner is that she passes discounts to her clients. For example, our linen rental and transportation rental were discounted because she was our coordinator.

On the day of the wedding, she brought with her two assistances (Amy and Vanessa). My short interaction with them was positive. They were sweet, courteous, and professional.

I highly recommend Kerrie and her team for your upcoming wedding plans. I couldn't have asked for a better professional to trust for this important day! Thank you Kerrie.

Kerrie is a great Wedding Planner.

Prior to the wedding she helped us with all of our vendors.
-Made sure flowers, colors, table linen was the way my wife pictured it. There were a few things off, and she gave us advice which worked out really well.
-Made sure DJ's brought the right equipment for the venue...

It also helped that Kerrie knew a lot vendors which made it easier for us to engage and work with. She will give honest opinions to which vendors will be best for certain circumstances.

During the day of the wedding Kerrie made sure that everything was according to plan and on time. I cannot imagine our wedding run as smooth as it did without her.

Kerrie made wedding planning so much fun for me! The hubby and I wanted a perfect fairy tale wedding, and as the type of person whose pretty controlling, I thought planning a wedding would be so stressful! Our first decision was to choose a wedding coordinator who would be there for us without being pushy, and always willing to help. We met with Kerrie after reading rave reviews, and decided to go with her on the spot. Hands down, it was the best decision I have EVER made during my wedding planning! Kerrie was always there for me; if I had questions or concerns, she'd address it right away, and was always reachable through her cell and email. We brainstormed ideas together, and came up with some really unique concepts that made my wedding so memorable. Every vendor she recommended me was beyond fantastic; they were worth every penny and their work left my guests speechless!

The month of the wedding Kerrie put together an extremely helpful timeline and spoke to all my vendors to make sure everything was ready to go. The big day finally arrived and although it flew by for my Hubby and I, she was there every step of the way (from helping me get ready all the way to the end of the night, making sure everything ran smoothly) and our cherry blossom themed wedding at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel was breathtaking!

A wedding is the most important day for you and your loved ones, and hiring a fantastic wedding planner is the most important step in wedding planning. We highly recommend Kerrie, she made the planning process for me a breeze, and put together the wedding of our dreams! Even though it's been three months since the big day, our guests STILL tell us it was the most beautiful wedding they've ever been to! To a bride who spent a year and a half planning such a day, those compliments never get old...and we owe it all to Kerrie :)

Kerrie is a great wedding planner. She is extremely helpful, responsive, organized and has a lot of experience in the wedding industry.

When I first got engaged, I hired Kerrie and was completely overwhelmed with the idea of planning a wedding in 9 months. I also had no idea what I wanted. Kerrie was really good at helping me find/express what I envisioned for my big day. My Mother was heavily involved in the wedding process and we both have polar opposite styles and Kerrie was able to appease both of our styles. My wedding was the best day of my life and I really thank Kerrie for helping my "dream wedding" come into fruition.

Kerrie had great recommendations for the florist, hair and make-up, hotel, and DJ/lighting. Since I work over 50 hours a week, I didn't have the luxury of time and ability to meet with multiple wedding vendors. Every recommendation she had was fantastic. She came along with us to our vendor meetings and knew all the right questions to ask.

If you're thinking of getting a wedding planner you should without a doubt consider Kerrie, even if you need a part time or full time wedding planner you will not be disappointed!

Before my wedding, I considered a wedding co-ordinator is seen as a luxury – someone you would only need if you are planning a big wedding or if you are too busy to do the wedding planning all on your own. I think one of the reasons why I overlooked the importance of having a wedding co-ordinator is that their efforts tend to be less tangible than the other vendors. With a photographer, the DJ, the florist and the officiant, you know what you are getting: pictures, music, flowers and someone to conduct your ceremony. What about a wedding co-ordinator? What can a wedding co-ordinator deliver that you can’t just find friends and family to do?

Three reasons stood out for us. The first reason was the creation of an ambience: lighting, flowers, and decor. My husband and I wanted something simple but elegant, and Kerrie delivered that in spades. If photography is important to you, any photographer will tell you how important lighting is (as ours told us). Kerrie’s magic touch definitely made a huge difference in how the room felt. It was beautiful, emanating warmth and elegance. With the décor, my husband and I did not really have a good idea of what we wanted the hall to look like, and Kerrie provided a lot of invaluable advice, as well as pictures to help us imagine what it could look like. She was extremely patient with us as we changed our minds numerous times to try to hit the right note. The outcome (a combination of the gold chivari chairs, burgundy linings, and our submerged-flower centrepieces in burnt orange, green and burgundy) was stunning. We received a lot of compliments that night on the décor thanks to Kerrie.

The second reason was the selection of vendors. You may have a crystal clear picture of exactly how you want your wedding to look like, but how do you make that reality? The vendors. Kerrie was awesome in this regard, working very closely with the vendors to ensure that our needs are met (and prices are negotiated). The vendors all love Kerrie, which makes things so much easier for the bride and groom. AND, Kerrie managed to have the DJ come in and set up the lights, and the linens and chairs delivered and set up the day before the wedding for us! We were running on a very tight schedule on the day of the wedding, and the fact that Kerrie managed to arrange this was extremely impressive and unexpected. It allowed me to enjoy my time with my girls the night before, rather than worrying about the schedule for the next day.

Our last (but certainly not least - in fact, it could potentially be the most important) reason is someone to help you on the day of the wedding. Kerrie’s contributions before the wedding were numerous and substantial, but even those paled in comparison to her assistance on the day of the wedding. Always punctual and cheerful, Kerrie arrived at my hotel room early in the morning and worked behind the scenes until late at night. She helped us keep to the timeline (extremely crucial for Chinese weddings with auspicious and inauspicious hours for doing almost everything), and made sure everything and everyone was where they should be, when they should be, doing what they should be. She was always there, behind the scenes with her encouragement and bubbly-ness, her extremely well-organized and extensive emergency kit, and her detailed to-do list; but giving you tons of personal space to enjoy the day. All sorts of things magically appeared with Kerrie's help that day - we didn't need to worry about a thing.

People always said to us before the wedding, “You can’t really think that you’ll enjoy your wedding day, there’s just too much to take care of.” Well, my husband and I did. We had fun, and we really really enjoyed the day (and it was a long day that started at 7am and ended at midnight). And it is all because someone had already taken care of everything for the two of us: Kerrie.

So did I change my opinion on the necessity of a wedding co-ordinator after my wedding? It is an emphatic, “yes!” You need to have Kerrie as a wedding co-ordinator if you want to have a beautiful wedding that is totally you, want a hassle-free planning process with the vendors and enjoy your wedding day.

And aside from the compliments on all aspects of the wedding, guess what else a lot of my friends said to me? “Your wedding co-ordinator was phenomenal.” And we have to agree.

We had fun, and we really really enjoyed the day (and it was a long day that started at 7am and ended at midnight). And it is all because someone had already taken care of everything for the two of us: Kerrie.

So did I change my opinion on the necessity of a wedding co-ordinator after my wedding? It is an emphatic, “yes!” You need to have Kerrie as a wedding co-ordinator if you want to have a beautiful wedding that is totally you, want a hassle-free planning process with the vendors and enjoy your wedding day.

And aside from the compliments on all aspects of the wedding, guess what else a lot of my friends said to me? “Your wedding co-ordinator was phenomenal.” And we have to agree. Read less

If you knew me, you'd know that there was about a 0.00002% chance that with my high standards that I would be able to look back at my wedding and say that it went *just* as I would have hoped. But I would have been wrong. It was better.

I got engaged 14 months prior to my nuptials, and in a fit of engaged mania, I shot off frenzied emails to about a dozen favorite planner blogs. With no date or venue in hand, alas the only response I received was Kerrie's. She sent a lovely electronic package (in less than 10 minutes!) and followed up with a call to discuss next steps. Despite Kerrie's warm congratulations and outreach, I saw the folly in my ways and went embarassingly radio silent until I had the date and venue in hand.

With four months passed and the St. Regis list of "approved planners" in hand, I tried again soliciting planners. I narrowed the list to 5 for phone interviews. After talking to them all - Kerrie was not only the most reasonable of the bunch, but also had a bubbly nature that was surprisingly calming. The perfect chemistry for me. I knew I had my wedding planning partner (already resigned that my soon-to-be hubby wasn't going to be!)

From the get, Kerrie, with military precision, helped me set a budget and gave me a focused set of vendor options. Let me tell you, this was *the key* to the success of the whole event. Her relationships with each and everyone one of my vendors (Sarah K Chen Photography, DJ Tasos, Lauren from Design Visage, Nisie's Enchanted Florists, Fusion Linens, Chivari Chair Rentals, and Kelly O'Dell at the St. Regis - I love each and every one of you!!!) left me to simply put what was vaguely in my head into the hopper in and step away until it was time to approve and pay! She knew how to manage my expectations on how to get the most of my budget and how to get the best rates from my vendors. No question that by PAYING Kerrie, *we* actually profited in the end.

Checking in periodically over the following year - and arming me with the mother of all checklists - Kerrie kept my mind at ease and my nerves at bay. As all nutty brides do, I had my panic moments. I don't think Kerrie blinks. No, really. With her beautiful smile (by phone!) she placated my spastic nature and procured answers in record time. During vendor meetings, she translated my ambivalence and intervened as bad cop on my behalf whenever needed (not often!) As the dates got closer, she even consumed our entire wedding war room (invites, favors, props, bubble machine, endless candy, etc! - thank you Greg for giving up your garage and home!) knowing that that would relieve some of the pre-wedding stress.

But all this pales in comparison to her contributions on the day of our wedding. At about a quarter to 5am, I sent Kerrie, what must be typical bride protocol, a last minute panicked logistics email. A couple short hours later, she had me on the phone telling me to breathe and all of those little things had long been addressed. Shortly, as I was getting my hair coiffed and my face put on, Kerrie literally floated in the room with a "hello my bride!" wearing the most darling pale blush pink necklace (her whole team donned pink as a tribute to our wedding colors - what a thoughtful touch!). She immediately put on her game face and went to work. It was like a ballet - the bouquets appeared, the photographers were snapping all my handmade details, the groomsmen who apparently didn't want to wear their suspenders - well, let's just say, I found out about them the next day.

Not only did her team make my table settings, my candy bar (which had over 70 pounds of candy including oversized 2.5" marshmallows!) and my custom gown-inspired cake better than I could have imagined, she was able to wrangle our 5 bridesmaids, 5 groomsmen, two sets of parents, and a 6-person junior bridal party with little more than a whisper. My favorite quote (told to me the next day) was that a groomsman, to remain unnamed, thought "golfcourse mayhem" was his middle name, and basically got his ear tugged by Kerrie - he was simply sternly told (mid-tantrum) "I'm not here to be YOUR best friend - I'm here to be HERS." Priceless.

Kerrie made sure we ate and sampled everything we selected. Kerrie ensured we never had an empty glass. Kerrie "macgyver'd" my horribly long dress to ensure I could enjoy my first dance with my new husband. Kerrie even made sure that we were able to steal away a few quiet moments just for us. As much as I am grateful to my wonderful parents, my new in-laws, my gorgeous hubby - I will always to be thankful to Kerrie Underhill for giving me the "platinum" wedding that I had pictured in my princess head since I was 5 (and so much more). Kerrie - you will be a friend for life. I thank you.

Love,
Kathryn

Kerrie is absolutely, positively AMAZING. Even as I write this review, I know in advance that the words I type could never convey the incredible wedding planner and person that she is. But here I go…

From the outset I knew that I wanted someone with a great sense of style, incomparable knowledge of the wedding industry and impeccable attention to detail. What I found was simply amazing, I found Kerrie. She exceeded every single expectation, she fulfilled every dream and in the process she became a near and dear friend and “sole” sister (yes, “sole” sister , Kerrie has the best taste in shoes). But I digress. I hired Kerrie to be my wedding planner for my PERFECT April 2011 wedding at Pelican Hill. I had no idea where to begin in my planning process when I contacted her a little over a year before even deciding on a wedding date, but what I was certain of was that I wanted my wedding in Newport Beach.

I did a Google search for Newport Beach planners and ran across a timelessly elegant Pelican Hill wedding that Kerrie had done the previous spring. I emailed her and not more than five minutes after I pressed the “Send” button did I have a very organized and detailed email from Kerrie, introducing herself and providing me with venue recommendations. Did I mention that I was emailing her from Dallas, Texas where my fiancé and I lived? I also emailed about 5 other well-known planners in the Newport and Los Angeles area and no one knocked my socks off and/or was as responsive, organized or down-to-earth as Kerrie. I wanted to meet in person, she completely cleared her schedule so I could fly down. Once I arrived, she showed me around Newport and potential venues and talked to me for hours about all things weddings, and this was all before I even signed a contract! She and I just clicked and it just felt right. Needless to say, I signed up to have a PWBK. Of all the decisions I made in 2010, excluding agreeing to marry my very handsome husband, was hiring Kerrie.

She made the whole wedding process so Easy. I’m positive that she could sense my extreme type-A personality and provided me with charts, timelines and updated budgets, which always put me at ease. I completely trusted her judgment and placed my entire wedding in her hands since I did not live in Newport. I would give Kerrie vague concepts like “Miami chic” and “effortless elegance” and she knew EXACTLY what I meant and conveyed my vision to the vendors. She also recommended the best vendors on the planet, handled all communications and contract negotiations and even took the time to answer calls from my parents and in-laws, and it didn’t stop once the wedding was over. Kerrie even followed-up with me to make sure that I had mailed off my marriage certificate. Talk about full service!!!

The day of the wedding I got to enjoy my wedding day (including the food, the details, and my family). Imagine that?!?! A bride that actually gets to enjoy her own wedding!! Kerrie planned everything down to the minute (even inserting a buffer for my parents and in-laws who are notoriously late). She was like a mind reader. She thought of every possible situation. I never had to worry about a thing, answer a call or do anything besides show up and marry my best friend. Kerrie is the epitome of professionalism and just an all-around fabulous person. If you want perfection don’t settle for anyone other than Kerrie Underhill. I promise that you will not be disappointed and/or find your money better spent anywhere else.

Where do I begin in singing Kerrie's praises?!? Hiring Kerrie as our wedding planner was the BEST decision we made in the whole process. Living in New York and planning a wedding in California, we knew we were going to need some extra help, but we had no idea how instrumental Kerrie would be for us until we started working with her. Kerrie went above and beyond from day one. I had contacted a handful of wedding planners at the outset, and when Kerrie got back to me by phone within a couple hours, I was immediately impressed by how on top of things she was and really appreciated her responsiveness. That is exactly what you will get when you hire Kerrie. She makes you her priority, no matter how many months it is until your wedding and she makes you feel like you are her only client.

One of the best things about working with Kerrie from the beginning of our planning is that she helped us put together a stellar vendor team. There's no way I would have been able to find the amazing vendors that we had even by doing research on my own, and that was a huge plus. Once Kerrie got to know us, she sent us several suggestions in each vendor category to check out and then narrow down. You will find once you hire your vendors that everyone loves working with her, and you really get treated well as one of Kerrie's clients! Knowing that your vendors are excited to work with Kerrie on the day of your wedding definitely adds to the excitement of the planning. We only had a few trips planned to California during our engagement, and whenever we came to town, Kerrie took care of scheduling all of our vendor meetings and made sure that we were able to get everything done. She even met with us twice during our trips home and went out of her way to do so.

There is no doubt that Kerrie is extremely professional and an expert in what she does, but she also became a wonderful friend and confidante, which I appreciated so much. There were many times when things felt really stressful for me and Kerrie was always there to listen on the phone, or to respond to a rambling email. She ALWAYS had my best interests in mind and I could not be more thankful for that.

More than anything, though, having Kerrie really puts your mind at ease for the wedding day, and that's ultimately what's the most important. There wasn't a worry in my mind on that day because I knew that Kerrie would take care of everything. She makes sure that your only concern is about having a blast and getting the most out of that day. We could never have had the unbelievable wedding that we did without Kerrie. Not only did the day go by so smoothly, but it was everything that we wanted and more. Thanks to Kerrie we will always have the most beautiful memories of our perfect wedding and we could not feel more lucky. Definitely do yourself a favor and get Kerrie as your wedding planner!

We hired Kerrie as a "week of" wedding coordinator. It was such a relief to have her-- there was so much to do the week before the wedding, so it was great to be able to rely on Kerrie for vendor correspondence and last minute details. We were very impressed by her ability to keep things running smoothly, both at the rehearsal and on the day of. Because of Kerrie, both myself and my husband were able to relax and enjoy our big day without worry. Kerrie's guidance throughout the planning process was invaluable. Additionally, we would highly recommend taking advantage of Kerrie's vendor recommendations. Almost every single one of our vendors was recommended by Kerrie and we were so happy with all of them; our wedding would not have been the same without her expertise and vendor relationships.

We had hired and fired TWO wedding coordinators (one from the Ritz list) before we found Kerrie Underhill. Kerrie was a BLESSING for my wedding preparation and day!!! Even my critical Persian dad went up and hugged Kerrie *multiple* times, thanking her for making the weekend feel so under control and relaxed.

Kerrie's follow through is outstanding! It's like she doesn't forget a thing. She's extremely professional and accessible. I called her the week before my wedding from the invitation store, freaking out over my last minute seating card situation, and she held my hand and talking me through everything. Kerrie was my coach and my cheerleader!

I would absolutely 100% recommend Kerrie!!! If you're lucky enough to get her.... If you didn't know, her rates are A LOT lower than other high quality coordinators. It's part of why I originally picked her, but she FAR FAR exceeded my expectations. I wouldn't be surprised if she doubles her rates soon. She deserves it! :-)

4 months before my wedding the venue went bankrupt and I had to start the process of planning all over again. In the midst of figuring out how to juggle all the locations and my mind a friend suggested I called Kerrie. I couldn't be happier that I made that call. I used her for her week of services but she helped me much more then that. SHe was my sanity and let me bounce ideas off of her and offered her professional and experienced suggestions. My wedding day could not have gone smoother from my eyes - she kept everything on time and made sure everything flowed beautifully. She was my best investment on my wedding day - my husband and I couldn't have been happier with her service and would recommend her to anyone even considering needing a wedding planner or coordinator!

We hired Kerrie as our "week of" wedding planner. From our first interaction, to the "Thank You" note she sent after the wedding, she was professional, prompt, smart and kind. Although we had already planned the entire wedding, she was able to offer several ideas for last-minute details that put beautiful finishes on our big day. She steered us away from bad or overly complicated ideas without ever making us feel discouraged. Her checklists and schedules are fantastic. She even offered to pick up and return our linens to help us save on delivery cost! We had complete trust in Kerrie and she made sure our families didn't worry about a thing on the day of the wedding.

I contacted Kerrie after my wedding venue canceled on me three months before our big day... needless to say, I was not in a great place. I emailed Kerrie and I think I got a phone call from her not 5 minutes later- she was so caring and concerned about our situation! I needed someone to help put together a brand new wedding in only a few short months- and Kerrie was up for the challenge!

She gave a VERY fair price based on our situation and where we were in the planning process. She was right there with vendors and ideas that fit my vision perfectly. I could not have asked for a better planner. We got along great, she was easy to talk to, listened and understood all our ideas and concerns, and answered all our crazy questions right up to the end! And, Kerrie was right there the entire day and night of the wedding for anything we might have needed... and she woke up the next day and was actually a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding-- after a full night of work, I don't know how she did it!!

She made planning our wedding on such short notice easy! We definitely could not have done it as fun and stress-free as it was without her!

I needed someone to help put together a brand new wedding in only a few short months- and Kerrie was up for the challenge!

She gave a VERY fair price based on our situation and where we were in the planning process. She was right there with vendors and ideas that fit my vision perfectly. I could not have asked for a better planner. We got along great, she was easy to talk to, listened and understood all our ideas and concerns, and answered all our crazy questions right up to the end! And, Kerrie was right there the entire day and night of the wedding for anything we might have needed... and she woke up the next day and was actually a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding-- after a full night of work, I don't know how she did it!!

She made planning our wedding on such short notice easy! We definitely could not have done it as fun and stress-free as it was without her! Read less

Kerrie was the coordinator for my April 2010 wedding at The Immaculata and The Lodge at Torrey Pines. She was the best decision and investment I made in my wedding. She is professional, smart, friendly, and organized. The value Kerrie added to my wedding preparation and wedding day was far greater than what I paid. I rarely give unsolicited advice, unless I feel very strongly about the advice I am giving: Do not get married without hiring Kerrie as your coordinator. I found myself saying several times the week and day of my wedding, “thank God for Kerrie.” You will also.

Leading up to my wedding, I met with Kerrie to discuss my plans and vendors. Kerrie has a network of reputable vendors that she is happy to recommend and are happy to make themselves available to work with her clients. Kerrie recommended the florist and DJ that I contracted with and could not have been happier with.

Kerrie also made several suggestions of affordable and classy ways to add nice touches to my wedding that I would not have otherwise thought of.

As my wedding day grew closer, Kerrie reviewed and provided valuable input on my vendor contracts. She also worked with me and my husband to provide a detailed wedding day timeline. She contacted all of my vendors to provide them with the timeline and ensure each knew exactly when and where they were supposed to be. I was very prepared and organized for my wedding day, but I had no idea how busy and overwhelmed I would be the week of my wedding at the office and with last minute preparations. I am extremely grateful Kerrie handled these items for me.

On the day before my wedding, the hairdresser I had booked to come to the hotel to do my hair, my mother’s hair, and my bridesmaids’ hair flaked. This was completely unexpected and I was not prepared with a back-up plan. With one phone call to Kerrie and within about 15 minutes, Kerrie had booked a new hairdresser who did a fantastic job. Kerrie earned her fee right there. I was able to enjoy my once in a lifetime rehearsal and rehearsal dinner without calling hairdressers to find a suitable replacement and worrying the night away.

Kerrie ran my wedding day like clockwork while making everyone feel at ease. At one point before the ceremony, I recall asking her what time it was, and she calmly reminded me not to worry about the clock that day…she would be the clock. That sums up Kerrie’s value on the wedding day. She is there so you can enjoy the day and live in the moment. She will manage the logistics and any unexpected missteps so you can enjoy and appreciate the very special day you have spent so much time preparing for. That is how it should be.

Kerrie is the ultimate professional. She knows the business. She maintains her composure at all times. She looks out for your interests. She repairs broken bustles! She is on top of everything. My parents, husband, and I are so grateful for her.

Kerrie is a must have!! I hired Kerrie to do month of coordination for my wedding in June, and she did an incredible job making my day the best day of my life. Kerrie is energetic, organized, responsive, creative, and down to earth. She is someone who is an instant friend, and someone to confide in. I contacted Kerrie about 8 months before my wedding, and it was the best decison I could have made. I recommend you contact her as soon as possible in the wedding planning process, as she has a ton of amazing vendors she can recommend for you to contact for everything from flowers, to photogs, to transportation. She knows her stuff, and it is always more comforting to contact vendors recommended from a expert source.

Kerrie will help and guide you every step of the way during your engagement. Even though she was my "month of" coordinator, she made sure I knew that anything I needed along the way, she was there to help. There were many times when I needed some advise on where to look for something, and she was right there to suggest 3 different places I could go. She is very quick via email and phone, which is a huge indication of her dedication to her clients. That really impressed me, and still to this day is something I admire in vendors.

I would highly recommend Kerrie and her services to anyone and everyone. It really is important to have someone there on your big day, as there is just not enough time to handle the details on your own, and you need to be able to relax and enjoy the journey. My wedding day went flawless, and was incredible due to Kerrie. You wont be dissapointed, she's a genuis!!

I don't know what I would have done without Kerrie! She was a great friend to have throughout my wedding planning process. Although I only hired her for "day of coordination" she was available to help me and give me vendor recommendations by phone or e-mail 24/7. She was really friendly and professional through the entire process. She went above and beyond the day of our wedding and helped everything flow smoothly. She really listened to what I wanted that day, and delivered more than I had ever hoped for. Thanks Kerrie! :)

I couldn't imagine what I would have done without Kerrie! She was absolutely amazing!! I had originally hired another wedding planner and after a couple meetings didnt feel very comfortable with having her "run the show"....so I started looking elsewhere. I contacted Kerrie and set up an initial meeting with her. Needless to say, after spending probably 5 minutes with her I knew she would help coordinate the most spectacular wedding ever and made me feel completely at ease. We signed the contract right then and there! I didnt need to meet with anyone else.
She picked up the mess that my original coordinator had left and basically took over everything that I had been trying to do myself! Now I know everyone always says there will be one thing that goes wrong at your wedding so to be prepared for that....well, I can honestly say that not one thing went wrong at my rehearsal or my wedding!!! Everything went so smoothly and completely as planned and I contribute it all to Kerrie! Seriously, do yourself a HUGE favor and hire her as your coordinator!! If you have her on your "team" you will feel totally at ease with everything from the vendors, to the rehearsal, to the timeline, to the wedding day, etc. She is absolutely amazing at what she does and I would highly, highly recommend her!!!
