Kisha, Belinda and the pure ambiance team were great! Kisha understood my ideas from the beginning and made the wedding that was in my mind into reality. Her team is organized, professional and on point.The vendors they use are also great, from flowers to rentals. The guests were so impressed with the look of the wedding, that they were taking pictures of the reception hall for 10minutes before evening taking their seats!

I had the opportunity to see the Pure Ambiance team in action when I was a bridesmaid in a wedding that Kisha Barner, Owner, planned a year prior to me getting engaged. I had no idea just how reliable and resourceful Pure Ambiance was until I worked with them for my wedding.

Kisha Barner is amaze-balls! She is lovely, self-assured and inspiring. I appreciated her candor, taste level and ability to handle vendors with tactful assertiveness.

Pure Ambiance team did an amazing job from beginning to end. 6 months after getting engaged my husband and I were married. Working with Kisha we planned the wedding in a short time frame, on a budget, and did not miss a beat. This was the most stress free process I’ve ever experienced. As I was getting dressed on the day of the wedding, I remember being the most tranquil person in the bridal suite. Why? Because I knew the Pure Ambiance team was on top of everything.

The reception décor was resplendent. My husband and I were blown away when we walked into the reception venue. We were impressed with the level of detail and care the Pure Ambiance team took in executing what was the happiest day of our life together thus far. I can not thank them enough for taking great care of me, my husband, our bridal party and guests.

Thank you so much Kisha, Samantha and Belinda for being my everything!

I seriously don't know how people can plan weddings without a planner. Sure it's do-able. But I was definitely the type of person that don't want my friends and family lifting a finger and scrambling to get centerpieces, napkins and flowers set up during the big day. I always thought I was very organized well-prepared, but everything just hit me on the last couple of months before the wedding. Luckily we found Kisha so our big day flowed FLAWLESSLY!

Meeting Kisha for the first time was just fabulous! She was very professional, friendly, and had a good sense of humor. My husband and I were more drawn to vendors that approached us in on personal level and Kisha was just like that! She listened to what we wanted, she asked all the right questions, and gave us such good advice with our wedding. There were so many moments during the planning when she made me realize different things we would've easily missed. The last month, things just got crazy for us but Kisha was there all the way. She answered my texts, emails, and calls immediately, and made sure we were right on track with our planning. Day, night, or dawn, I was impressed that she would always respond back so quickly!

Our wedding day was seriously the BEST DAY EVER. And Kisha and her fabulous assistant, Belinda, help make that happen. I especially liked how Kisha waited for the right moment to start the ceremony so late-comers won't see me in my dress while walking from the limo to the church. Belinda stayed with me and our bridal party in the cold rain. She held up my big gown so it won't get wet while holding an umbrella on top of my head as I took pictures. Our reception was just flawless, even looked better than what we anticipated. Two of our aunts were sick that night and they helped them up to our bridal suite and gave them Tums or tea, checking on them every now and then! Nurse-wedding-planners much? =)

These girls can do it all. We would highly recommend them =)

I have to share the amazing experience my husband and I had with Pure Ambiance. At first, I was very worried about how to organize my wedding, since I'm not from this country and had nobody to help me. My life changed when I found Pure Ambiance! They not only referred me to great professionals, but also respected all of our ideas and made my dream wedding come true. I'm really thankful to the whole crew who made my day a stress free experience.

From the moment I met Kisha, I knew exactly that I wanted her to help us plan our big day. She demonstrated the professionalism, industry knowledge, and "loving life" personality that I was looking for in a planner. She was so easy to chat with and she was just as excited about our big day as we were! And from the start of the planning process, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing Kisha. She exceeded all of our expectations from the beginning. Our first step was to find the perfect venue. Kisha took us to the venues that we selected from a list of places she researched based on what we were looking for and our budget. She was right by our side when we walked into and picked our PERFECT wedding day venue. After we selected our venue, the next step was to select all of our vendors. I have to say that Kisha nailed it with every single vendor! From the stationary design, to the DJ, hair and makeup stylists, the Reverend, and to the florist - Kisha was there at every single appointment and every vendor was FANTASTIC! Kisha's relationships with these exceptional vendors is the reason our big day went so smooth. They all worked together flawlessly throughout the entire night! Kisha's team hit the ground running as soon as they arrived on the day of our wedding. They were there everywhere we looked quickly helping out with any request we needed. I have never met such sweet and kind hearted girls like the Pure Ambiance team. In addition to the amazing vendors Kisha helped us to select, she has an incredible ability to envision and execute a beautifully designed setting. On the day of our wedding, when my husband and I walked into the reception, we could not believe how beautiful everything looked. It was surreal how beautiful our reception looked, and we absolutely felt like we were living a fairytale. Our wedding looked and felt so uniquely beautiful because of Kisha. Our wedding was flawless, and I would not change a single aspect of it! She knows exactly what she's doing and will give any bride and groom a PERFECT wedding day no matter what they are looking for. You absolutely must choose Kisha as she is the absolute best in the industry! Thank you soooo much, Kisha!!

This is probably one of the hardest “reviews” I have to write because I have positives and negatives to write about. So first let me start off with the positives.

Kisha took a little break from setting up the ballroom to come upstairs and see me. I was very touched by that. I also have to say that having her assistant by my side all day was one of the best touches that she could have ever put on her services. Honestly, there was never a moment in which I was worried about ANYTHING because I knew her assistant was right there to take care of it. Having her there and having Kisha just a phone call away was so comforting that I have NO IDEA how brides do it WITHOUT a wedding planning service. I was able to relax and enjoy the moments without having to worry about ANYTHING going wrong. And then there was the ballroom. I still can’t believe how well every detail came together… the room was just “pure ambiance”… lol. EVERYONE we speak with mentions the room… EVERYONE. From the lighting, to the tablecloths, to the centerpieces… everything was just PERFECT. It was a scene out of one of my dreams. It was shimmery and purple with candle lights glowing. I don’t even have words to describe that feeling, even now as I remember it. It was just breathtaking. I never wanted it to end.

But like I said, there were some negatives: There was a lack of flexibility. All appointments had to be made around her schedule, even if that meant days off from work or leaving work early. Late evening appointments were hard to come by and weekend appointments were virtually nonexistent. Email responses took 2-3 days. Our budget was not even referred to throughtout the planning process.... I'm the one who kept updating it. There was a 2 week wait for appointments.

Overall, PA does great work, but I feel like its too big for one person to run. I wish I got a little more in the customer service department, but what really matters is that my wedding was flawless. I've recommended Pure Ambiance since my wedding, and will continue to do so.

This is the only vendor than underwhelmed me with their services. It started in the beginning when it took days for Kisha & her assistant planner Megan to get back to emails but I chose to ignore the little red flag I felt in my gut… We technically hired her for “partial planning” b/c by the time I found her, I had already booked all the big pieces including: ceremony venue, officiant, reception venue, caterer, photographer, hair & make up. So the only vendors I needed some help with were the florist & the DJ. She included in her “partial planning” was the “event design” where she presented me with 3 options for flower arrangements, escort cards, etc. I DIYed most of the pieces for our wedding. Nothing she presented me with was anything I had never seen before on this website or wedding blogs but it fit with the overall look I wanted for our wedding. Either way, I knew I needed someone to set everything up & take everything down the day of the wedding.
The day of the wedding, our ceremony & reception were set up perfectly. I was very happy with how everything looked. Kisha had 4 girls working at the wedding & although I do not know how much they did & how much the caterer set up, it all looked exactly the way I wanted it to. That being said, there were FIVE people from Pure Ambiance working our wedding. Yet, many of my guests were not directed where to go for cocktail hour, they were not instructed on what to do with our “thumbprint tree” (and I was told someone was going to stand next to it to go over it), and when questions were asked, they weren’t always answered nicely. My mother asked one of the girls where I was & she shrugged & said “How should I know?”. All of them ate before all of my guests got to go to the buffet line. MY SISTER was behind them in line & I think it was completely inappropriate. If I were working at someone’s wedding & noticed that the MOH was behind me in line, I would have moved.
At one point, I was pulled aside from dancing with my guests to be asked if any of the desserts had nuts (I did not know) & then I asked if any of my guests were allergic. No… one of the PA girls wanted to eat dessert & wanted to know. Isn’t the solution to that question very simple? Ask the caterer OR just don’t eat dessert. Yes, I have to feed you & I did (even before all my GUESTS ate) but you really don’t need to sample all of the desserts if you aren’t sure which ones have nuts. And who stops the bride to ask that type of question when you are the planner?
So many of my guests made comments about how all of them sat the whole night & looked like they were guests at our wedding, eating, drinking, & chatting it up all night. At the end of the night, we had already discussed having them pack everything up so my parents could bring home. I had 26 lanterns that were put together & they wanted to put all the lanterns in the car w/o breaking them down. My mother had to ask them to please take them apart & put them back in their boxes.
I emailed Kisha about my feelings especially since I was going to be writing a review & I got an email back explaining her feelings, & I appreciated it & thought it was professional. Overall, I do not think their services are up to par to the cost & I would not recommend her or her “staff”.

Kisha's enthusiasm, impeccable taste and guidance (with her wonderful
Pure Ambiance team) helped to make my 40th birthday backyard bash a
most memorable night - Despite rains and mud, or perhaps because of,
her planning with tents and use of our indoor and outdoor space
created a most cozy atmosphere where friends of ours from different
parts of our lives "met and partied under the tents". I've already
been asked for my party planner's name from multiple guests and I have
gladly recommended Pure Ambiance to others as well. I look forward to
working with her in the future to create more amazing events.

Pure Ambiance saved my sanity. I was finishing up a very intensive program, and the groom was working full time and finishing up school as well, so we had no time to plan. Kisha and her team helped us plan everything. They were very organized, professional and coordinated. They went out of their way to make sure that we got the best price on everything. They were simply wonderful and I highly recommend them.

My husband, Kevin and I met Kisha at a bridal show at the Addison Park. We were just at the beginning stages of planning the wedding and were semi unorganized and hadn't even thought of hiring a wedding planner. When we met Kisha, we were just starting to think about hotel accommodations for our guests and feeling a bit lost because we were both unfamiliar with what was available near the Addison Park. We scheduled an appointment with Kisha to just get a feel for what a planner could do for us. Before we even had our meeting or signed with Kisha she had already researched hotels in the area and e-mailed them to us. After the first 10 minutes of our meeting, Kevin and I knew we had to work Kisha into the budget and hire her. We chose the day of package which was perfect for us and our needs. However, Kisha went above and beyond what she was hired for. Kisha and I immediately hit it off and clicked as if we knew each other for years which made me feel extremely comfortable. Her upbeat positive attitude really made me feel like she was a part of the wedding planning as my friend which was such a great experience! Kisha had great ideas and always had suggestions of where to purchase things, what questions to ask vendors, and great referrals, such as Cam Turner for invitations.
When it came close to the wedding day, we had several meetings with Kisha and her team to work out a plan for the day of the wedding. I was so impressed with how she put together a timeline for the entire day. All I kept saying the morning of my wedding was "I don't know how people do this without having a planner!" The entire morning went smoothly and without a hitch! There were no major problems and anything that did come up, (like me forgetting my dancing shoes for our first dance at the hotel that was 30 min away) Kisha and her team were on it! Every detail was taken care of and I was able to enjoy my day like any bride would want to: stress free and happy! I can honestly say I would recommend Kisha to any bride that wants to have a stress free wedding. Not only did I have a fantastic wedding but I gained a wonderful friend as well!

My husband, Kevin and I met Kisha at a bridal show at the Addison Park. We were just at the beginning stages of planning the wedding and were semi unorganized and hadn't even thought of hiring a wedding planner. When we met Kisha, we were just starting to think about hotel accommodations for our guests and feeling a bit lost because we were both unfamiliar with what was available near the Addison Park. We scheduled an appointment with Kisha to just get a feel for what a planner could do for us. Before we even had our meeting or signed with Kisha she had already researched hotels in the area and e-mailed them to us. After the first 10 minutes of our meeting, Kevin and I knew we had to work Kisha into the budget and hire her. We chose the day of package which was perfect for us and our needs. However, Kisha went above and beyond what she was hired for. Kisha and I immediately hit it off and clicked as if we knew each other for years which made me feel extremely comfortable. Her upbeat positive attitude really made me feel like she was a part of the wedding planning as my friend which was such a great experience! Kisha had great ideas and always had suggestions of where to purchase things, what questions to ask vendors, and great referrals, such as Cam Turner for invitations.
When it came close to the wedding day, we had several meetings with Kisha and her team to work out a plan for the day of the wedding. I was so impressed with how she put together a timeline for the entire day. All I kept saying the morning of my wedding was "I don't know how people do this without having a planner!" The entire morning went smoothly and without a hitch! There were no major problems and anything that did come up, (like me forgetting my dancing shoes for our first dance at the hotel that was 30 min away) Kisha and her team were on it! Every detail was taken care of and I was able to enjoy my day like any bride would want to: stress free and happy!

Not to be dramatic, but Pure Ambiance was awesome!! Kisha and her team literally took care of everything. My wife and I are very laid back people, and really did not want to have to go through any of the stress or drama that can sometimes be associated with weddings. From the first time we sat down with Kisha, we got the feeling that we would never had to worry about that at all. She made us feel very comfortable and REALLY valued our input. When the wedding day actually came, everything was beautiful. Kisha and her team completely captured our garden themed wedding and reception to the letter.

The only thing that even came close to being a snag that day came when one of my groomsmen left half of his tux at the house over an hour away from the venue. Even then, the team went into action, finding a formal store nearby with the missing pieces AND keeping this news from the rest of the bridal party. It went so smoothly that my wife didn't find out until our honeymoon!

Looking back at our overall experience we could not have asked for anything more.
