April Kelley was a true blessing and life savor for our wedding. With the bride living in North Carolina and the groom living in Fl & both of us traveling for a living the challenges of planning &coordinating this wedding were not easy or normal. Our wedding was in a family home for both the ceremony and the reception. April's creativity & depth of knowledge with wedding planning, caters, space allowances for guest comfort was invaluable to us and accurate to the tee. A garage was transformed into a lovely dinning area with candles, flowers, china dishes, linen table clothes for 8 top round tables included warmth from the glow if the tiny lights and netting. The cake table was decorated with stair stepped cakes chosen from local vendors for their specialties. Appetizers and cocktails were provided on the lanai and displayed beautifully with access ease for the guests.The buffet was served by the chef's staff was so fresh and delicious that people kept going back for seconds... Presentation presentation presentation was over the top...... Our guest are still raving about the food and the lovely event that April coordinated for my husband and I on August 16, 2014. One precious moment was just before the wedding when April coordinated the groom to be positioned under a second story walkway and had me walk out of the dressing room to be seen by my three sons for the first time as the bride. The exclamations, awes and comments were priceless to me from each one of them as well as knowing my groom could not see me but he could see them and their faces & hear their comments. That just gives you a hint of this woman April Kelley's talent.My husband & I would be willing to give a verbal review to anyone who would ask as a reference for April Kelley ad her staff. My daughter found April her web site on the web from NC so the reviews are accurate and valid. :)

April and her team are truly the best! April definitely made the wedding planning process stress free and smooth sailing! We hired Jaclyn as a day-of-coordinator for our July 27, 2014 wedding. She proved, however, to go way above and beyond her agreement to help us on the "day-of!" When you hire a day-of-coordinator, you don't quite expect the coordinator to care about your planning beforehand. But April did. April was so generous with her time during all in-person and phone-conference meetings. Whenever we needed something or had a question, she always was responsive and quick! We never felt rushed, and she made it clear her priority was to work with us as much as we needed, and until we felt comfortable. I am so blessed to have had her as a wedding planner and pulling off our special day. Everything was beautiful and we received so many compliments on our wedding and it was all because April put everything together perfectly. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner, she knows what she is doing! I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a wedding planner, and if I had to rate her from 1 to 10...it would be a 20! She's a pleasure to work with, a total professional start to finish, and so worth the bang for your buck given her dedication and such amazing organization! April will know your schedule inside out, and make sure everything happens quietly, seamlessly and with a smile. She will work so hard to make sure you have a perfect day -- a day that the bride and the groom can just sit back and enjoy. And I can honestly say that is the kind of day we had. Literally nothing went wrong. Nothing. Not something I ever thought I'd say about my wedding! Everything, everything went right and beautiful and without a beat missed. She understood our vision and it turned out beautifully! Thank you so much again and I would highly recommend her to any engaged couple!

April and her team are truly the best! April definitely made the wedding planning process stress free and smooth sailing! We hired Jaclyn as a day-of-coordinator for our July 27, 2014 wedding.

From the day I reached out to Simple Elegant Weddings until the day we left on our honeymoon this team was amazing! No matter the time of day or night, if I called, emailed or texted April answered immediately! The planning was so flawless and I was actually able to be my carefree self because I knew we were in great hands. I would place something on Pinterest or email it to April or Brandy and in no time they had created the vision I had but even BETTER! My wedding day was PERFECT and it IS because I chose the planner I did, thank you Simple Elegant Weddings!

If you are considering a day of planner or coordinator, don't waste your time reviewing others. I interviewed several and Simple elegant Weddings was budget friendly and didn't have a clause for additional time cost or percentages. The price your quoted is the price you pay and you get a LOT more than you contracted for! After all it is hard to place a price on PERFECTION and that is what this team is!!!

wish there were more stars to give because April truly deserves it. I worked with April for over a year on our wedding and it was the most beautiful, perfect, exciting, and FUN day of my life. I didn't have to worry about one thing the entire day and when I got to the venue I couldn't stop marveling about how magical the reception hall looked.

It was truly out of a fairy tale. The smartest thing I did was let April do her thing because she truly delivered, above and beyond. Throughout the entire wedding (and since that day) we have had people tell us how beautiful the decor was, how delicious the food was, how much they loved the ceremony and how it will be impossible for someone to top it. All of our vendors were recommended by Simple Elegant Weddings and I didn't have to think about a thing on the day of my wedding. Our entire family was blown away by how amazing our wedding was and it was an unforgettable day.

It was absolutely perfect :) :)

My wedding day couldn't have been more perfect! April was hired as my day-of-coordinator and the execution of the day was flawless. I didn't have to worry about a thing during the day and actually got to enjoy my day.

Even though she was only hired as a day-of-coordinator, April helped me weeks in advance, with keeping me on track of deadlines, following up with vendors, meeting with my venue, and bringing up items I hadn't even though of!

April is also very accommodating to your schedule. As with planning a wedding and having a full time job things can get a little hectic, but April was always willing to work around my schedule.

If you want to have a low stress day and know that it will be executed to perfection then April Kelley is the person for you!

I hired April, from Simple Elegant Weddings, shortly after I got engaged. From the moment we started talking I knew that I made the right decision. Her professionalism and attention to detail were evident from the very start. I hired her for Full Service Planning and that is exactly what I got. She not only understood my vision for my wedding, but managed to bring it to light exactly as I had pictured it. There was no detail too small that she did not understand and have covered.
Because of her vast vendor network, I was able to get really good pricing on the different aspects of my wedding. This saved me a lot of money. The deals I managed to get were so good, that I was able to give April a little more for all the incredible work she put into my big day.
During the rehearsal she ran through what each of us would be doing several times to make sure that we all understood our roles. She was decisive when it came time to give directions and left no question unanswered. She was quick to adapt and make any changes necessary. Even through all of the pre-planning, what she was able to do on the day of the wedding was even more amazing.
I would have gone crazy trying to take care of all the things she, and her team, handled on my wedding day. I am still amazed at all that she finalized herself, or helped to get finished so that everything went according to plan. She had her hand in everything and was amazingly caring and helpful to me, even with all that she had to oversee.
I had several of my friends mention to me how wonderful everything looked and how flawlessly it seemed to come together. A couple of them commented on how it all worked so well that they wanted to know more about April and all the work she put into my wedding so that they could keep her in mind should they ever get married. I would definitely recommend Simple Elegant Weddings to anyone that is planning a wedding. One of the best decisions I have ever made!

April Kelley is top notch and knows the industry from beginning to end! I can say this because I am a wedding planner in the same area which Simple Elegant Weddings is located and yes she is my "competitor".

I know this because I recently had a family emergency come up which led to me having to leave the state at which time I also had a wedding under contract. What to do what to do......

I contact several planners explaining my situation and inquiring how they could and would step in to help my clients insuring their wedding was exactly how my clients (Kelly and Brad) and had planned. April impressed me with her concern for me, my situation and my clients.

After getting April on board and bringing her up to date, it was time to explain this all to my clients. Kelly crted and was worried to death. She talked with April explaining her fears and what did April do to set her mind at ease? She went to meet Kelly and Brandon whom do not live in Florida. That wad enough for us all, we knew April was going to dedicate herself, her staff and the wedding would be just as I had planned for this couple.

Then came the big day.. April texted me photos every step of the way and video also. I must admit I cried because everything looked PERFECT!!!! Then I noticed little add on's which Kelly or Brad had mentioned in their notes I shared with April.

I waited to hear from Kelly or Brad and when I did - my opinion was confirmed they were so happy and thank me time and time again for finding April. I am sure you will see their review of April and Simple Elegant Weddings!

I realize April Kelley is my competitor but I will say this...... she is exactly what a wedding planner is about! Her photo should be beside the dictonary term. She is my preferred wedding planner in South Florida.

NOTHING!!! Or maybe that I actually met with other planners and didn't find this team immediately! I worried that maybe since tbey were located a hour or so from our choice location St Pete that they maybe stumble a bit with our planning our vendor's. DID NOT happen. You would have thought they were right here all the time.

Simple Elegant Weddings is in a league of their own. I am now a believer and will provide a reference ANY DAY!

Thabk you for providing our "DREAM COME TRUE" as you motto says. You are the BEST!

She made sure that all the vendors were on the same page and worked well with everyone. She took control of every situation and was spot-on! The weekend of my wedding she was just as amazing.

April was always available for us any time we needed her and reviewed my daughters picks in Pinterest to be able to create the wedding of her dreams. Without April I would have been a total wreck especially with the last minute changes needed. A great wedding planner is a must and April is the best there is

April Kelley did an OUTSTANDING job as the wedding planner for my daughter's church wedding and reception at The Club for 400 guests. She is highly organized and kept every aspect of the planning on schedule with ease and confidence.

I am a very detail oriented person with high expectations of people and April EXCEEDED my expectations in EVERY way. She is a true professional with numerous contacts in the wedding industry and it is obvious that she is well respected. Her leadership, team oriented approach, and communication skills kept all vendors informed and driven toward the common goal of a successful wedding celebration.

I would highly recommend April to plan any type of function, large or small. She is resourceful and performed her job with EXCELLENCE. If you want to enjoy a special event in your life, hire April and her staff!!

To describe in one word what April/Simple Elegant Weddings was to us as we prepared for our wedding: LIFESAVER!

She was referred by an events manager at one of the hotels we visited (on our own, like many other couples who think they can do it all.)

After our consultation meeting, when she showed us her folder of extremely detailed itineraries, we knew it was a perfect match. We were both from out of town, completing our last year of residency...we needed all the help we could get!

April worked with us for nearly a year, and her fees were extremely reasonable for the comprehensive services provided.

She introduced us to her excellent network of preferred vendors and was also flexible when we wanted to meet with others. She came with us to every meeting and made sure our contracts were in order before signing. She helped us stick to our budget and her monthly to-do emails kept us on track to avoid a lot of last-minute stress.

April communicated with our parents long-distance and coordinated weekend events with them. She was always available through phone, text, or email and quick to respond...you get the point, she is amazing! T

The personal touch really came through when she came with us to our respective fittings to take pictures for our families to see.

On the big day itself, we were in awe at the "entourage" April brought with her to make sure nothing was missed. She, Lisa snd Patrick stayed with us the entire day.

If there were any hiccups at all, we had no idea because to us, everything went so smoothly.

We kept hearing the word "wow" from our guests, who asked us how we were able to pull it all off and all we could say was, Simple Elegant weddings.

Thank you April for helping us fulfill our vision and allowing us to be guests at our own wedding; we are happy to be part of the "Simple Elegant Weddings family."

If you ever decide to relocate to Toronto, we know plenty of people to keep y'all busy!

We found Simple Elegant Weddings yesterday and gave them a call expecting to be turned away like we were by others. We explained that we wanted to get married NOW and not just st the Clerks office.

What we got was PERFECTION!!! April Kelley did a great job putting together more than we could have ever wished for less than 5 hours. George was a great officiant and Lorraine I have no doubt captured it perfectly. This entire team was unbelievable yesterday. You woukd have thought we had planned for months and we only had hours.

We are so grateful for this team and their availability yesterday!

Simple Elegant Weddings gave us the best Christmas gift we could have asked for, thank you!

I wish there were more stars to give because April truly deserves it. I worked with April for over a year on our wedding and it was the most beautiful, perfect, exciting, and FUN day of my life. I didn't have to worry about one thing the entire day and when I got to the venue I couldn't stop marveling about how magical the reception hall looked.

It was truly out of a fairy tale. The smartest thing I did was let April do her thing because she truly delivered, above and beyond. Throughout the entire wedding (and since that day) we have had people tell us how beautiful the decor was, how delicious the food was, how much they loved the ceremony and how it will be impossible for someone to top it. All of our vendors were recommended by Simple Elegant Weddings and I didn't have to think about a thing on the day of my wedding. Our entire family was blown away by how amazing our wedding was and it was an unforgettable day.

It was absolutely perfect :) :)

I knew from the first conversation that I had with April that she was the PERFECT fit to be our planner! Not only does she know her stuff, she's also down to earth, but yet still very professional. Most importantly, she acknowledged what our vision was and wasn't pushy with her ideas. She made suggestions, but always asked for my opinion, She always responded quickly to my emails and texts and followed up with me periodically to make sure everything was going okay on my end.

The day of the wedding, she was on point! She even showed up at the hair salon to see how I was doing and if there was anything else (in addition to her list) that she could do to assist. She's great under pressure, adjusts accordingly and makes things go smoothly for the bride and groom. She has excellent multitasking and time management skills.

After the wedding, she took it upon herself to return a few rented items to vendors for us so that we wouldn't have to worry about it. She also filed our marriage license for us too!! She went above and beyond for us, which we greatly appreciated!

All in all, hiring April was the easiest and best decision that I made throughout the wedding planning/decision making process. I honestly don't know what I would've done without her help. She was absolutely FABULOUS and a joy to work with!!! She allowed us peace of mind and the ability to ENJOY our special day, Thank you so much April @ Simple Elegant Weddings!!

I can not say enough good things about April and her team! April is truly a "voice" for the bride. We met on several occasions and she also had many conversations with my mother prior to the wedding. On my wedding day, I was so relaxed, and I have no doubt April had a lot to do with that. Everything went smoothly, and if anything was not "right" it was taken care of without worrying me unnecessarily. I definitely recommend hiring a professional wedding planner to help organize and direct the wedding day. You can't go wrong with Simple Elegabt Weddings! They are very professional and also fun to work with.

One of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding was hiring April as our planner snd for our coordinator . She was very attentive and ensured that everything the day of our wedding was perfect and exactly as we envisioned. April met with me several times before the wedding and ensured that I was on track and not forgetting any details. Additionally, she had several insightful tips, ideas and hints that I would have never thought of. She was very accomodating to the fact that I have a hectic job and was having to plan the wedding from another city; she was very flexible and willing to meet whenever I could. Additionally, whenever I had any questions about anything related to the wedding, April was very prompt to reply to calls/emails with the perfect answer. April has extensive contacts in the Southwest Florida area and provided great ideas for vendors, venues, and shops. April was so helpful not only in regards to the wedding day, but also all other wedding related festivities such as the rehersal dinner, bridesmaids gifts, bridesmaid luncheon, mother of the bride/groom dresses, and endless other details. The day of the wedding was completely stressfree for my husband and I because of April's excellent service; we were able to just enjoy the day with our families and friends and not worry about any of the details of the wedding. She did a great job of keeping me calm the day of the wedding so that I could just enjoy the day. April is extremely professional and organized, and was a pleasure to do business with. Everything was perfectly in line with what we invisioned, and a very special day that we will never forget because of the outstanding service of Ms. April!

Simple Elegant Weddings,

PLANNING

Roughly a week or two after the engagement, I googled wedding planners in the Fort Myers Area and Simple Elegant Weddings website surfaced. I decided to give April a call which lead to our 1st meeting.
After less than 10 min, I could tell that she was going to be the best fit for myself and Justin. April was very organized and I was able to see some of her past events. The pictures blew my mind and I was very excited to start the process. The next step was figuring out her cost of service and when she told me I kinda panicked a bit....... but let me say this her services were well worth the money and I would advise the bride to be if you can afford please hire Simple Elegant Weddings because they will make your day run so smoothly! During the process, Aril, Lisa and Amanda connected me to the numerous professional vendors throughout the Fort Myers Area. It was so nice because she connected the vendors directly and I didn't have to worry about a thing...

WEDDING DAY

If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. It was absolutely Beautiful :) The amazing purple and silver candy buffet, photo booth ( was a HiT... even the grandparents took photos), the lounge area, and the lovely decor. Our guest loved the event and it was definitely " Our Simple Elegant Wedding" several of them even mentioned that they event was the best wedding that they ever attended and that overall they had an awesome time - Most importantly so did I, Justin, and our parents.

RECOMMENDATION

If you can afford to get a wedding planner please hire SIMPLE ELEGANT WEDDINGS.......

I loved April the first time I spoke with her- I emailed her late one evening and she was available to chat that night. She said she wasn't just a planner but she'd be a friend in the wedding planning process, and this was so true. Hiring April was the best decision we could make. She could take my vague ideas for the wedding and make it happen, in a way that was better than I had imagined. She is always available, and there was no limit like some other companies had (eg one hour long meeting, two 30 min phone calls etc). She was just there when I needed her, period. I don't know what we would have done without her!

April went above and beyond what was in her job description. She dealt with the vendors, who she has good relationships with, and took care of all our affairs so tactfully. She made great recommendations and helped pick the right vendors that fit us and our budget the best.

She also did all our flowers, which were not only AMAZING but saved us a ton too. We picked them out together and Cody had the best vision. They were just beautiful. Would def recommend her flowers!

On our wedding day everything went smoothly (at least as far as I know-I didn't have to do a thing, April took care of everything!) which meant my husband and I, as well as our families, could just relax and enjoy the day without worrying about all the details, timeline etc. it was the most magical day.

In short I'd definitely recommend April, best planner I know! She made our wedding day the best it could be, and we are so grateful :)

Let me make this very simple for anyone looking over reviews for wedding planning and/or complete weddings. Simple Elegant Wedding delivers very thing and more promised.

I had viewed reviews and of course just looked at the featured companies. I chose one because I assumed being featured meant they were the best.... WRONG! I chose another and ended up with a nightmare!!! I then decided it was time to see if someone could help me salvage this wedding of mine. I started researching again and I found Simple Elegant Weddings.

I called their office and spoke with April on a Sunday afternoon. She assired me everything would be perfect regardless of it being a month away. She met me that day as well. I was so impresses with her professionalism anf drive to create my perfect wedding while savinv what I had wasted on the "other planner". She did just that!

I got the wedding of my dreams and it was soely because of April Kelley and her team at Simple Elegant Weddings. We have now booked my sisters wedding with April for next fall.

We love this team! You can not go wrong with selecting them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Our wedding day was beyond exceptional. Down to every detail, it was truly everything I could of asked for and more. All thanks to April and her staff at Simple Elegant Weddings.

Honestly, I can say that April was the best investment I made through out the entire wedding process. Without her knowledge, resources, and genuine support there is no way our wedding would of turned out to be that amazing.

Let's just talk about April for a bit. She without a doubt, has all the qualifications to be the BEST wedding planner. She is organized, prompt in responding, and gets everything handled in a very efficient manner. She isn't afraid to go out on a limb for her bride to ensure you are getting the best deal with vendors. April was great at anticipating my needs and helped to answer questions that I would of never thought about on my own. I can't tell you what a peace of mind she provided to me. She also works very well with helping you to create your vision. Her inventory of decor that you are able to use is another great services she provides. With the use of that and her mastery at staging your ideal wedding, I felt like our wedding was something you see out of a magazine.

Beyond this, there is a lot more to love about April that is priceless. She absolutely loves her brides! It is evident, and you can feel her genuine love and support which is an incredible thing from a wedding planner. This industry is fortunate to have such a lovely lady in it.

If you are reading all her review, and they all seem too good to be true....it's a good sign. :-) Thank you April!!

She is organized, prompt in responding, and gets everything handled in a very efficient manner. She isn't afraid to go out on a limb for her bride to ensure you are getting the best deal with vendors. April was great at anticipating my needs and helped to answer questions that I would of never thought about on my own. I can't tell you what a peace of mind she provided to me. She also works very well with helping you to create your vision. Her inventory of decor that you are able to use is another great services she provides. With the use of that and her mastery at staging your ideal wedding, I felt like our wedding was something you see out of a magazine.

Beyond this, there is a lot more to love about April that is priceless. She absolutely loves her brides! It is evident, and you can feel her genuine love and support which is an incredible thing from a wedding planner. This industry is fortunate to have such a lovely lady in it.

If you are reading all her review, and they all seem too good to be true....it's a good sign. :-) Thank you April!!

WOW...thats the word that best describe my wedding planner. I had allot of people tell me...how expensive a wedding planner would be for this wedding. I’m sooooooo happy I didn’t let anyone talk me out of having a wedding planner. You have to be very careful with weddings these days...people know brides are excited and willing to pay for things that sound inexpensive and “to good to be true”. Well, watch out ladies..allot of vendors are not there to do a good job or even make sure your big day is all that you dreamed of. My wedding planner (April and Lisa) had excellent vendors and I didn’t have to worry about anyone cheating me, stealing from me, and/or not giving me quality product. I also didn’t have to worry about the little details because she took care of all of that. A wedding can be sooooo stressful and sometimes with other things in life….it’s just too much. I do wish I could change one thing, and that’s listen to my wedding planner…when she said, “relax….I’m taking care of your wedding”. My wedding was fantastic...it had lot of unique qualities but everyone loved the things that were different. The Simple Elegant Weddings team was great. My fiancé and dad was complaining about the price but on the day of the wedding…they both said, it was all worth it, and I have to agree! My advice to all brides, you will get so much feedback from family and friends. However, the one thing you don’t cut back on is, the person who can make your wedding..a “true” and stress-free wedding! Its truly worth getting a wedding planner like April Kelley on your team.

I used April from beginning to end even with being in the same town as her I gave her complete control because I was in the middle of opening a new business as well. She made planning my wedding a breeze. She had so much knowledge and reminded me about things that I did not even think about. April took all of my questions and concerns to heart and helped me through all of my emotional stress. I wanted a modern formal yet elegant/ fun wedding and April delivered with all of my expectations and more.

We had our wedding on Captiva at the Sea Oats Estate we also held our reception and rehearsal there. April was there every step of the way and everywhere I looked she had little details that made the event even more special. Our ceremony was on the beach and our reception was held on the bay.

I think that her pricing is more than fair with everything that she offers and does I'm sure you won't be disappointed. She always responded to my communications in a quick and professional fashion. She has an excellent list of vendors to choose from we chose Yum Yum Cakes for our wedding cake and catering by Leslie for the food, very tasty no complaints what so ever. They were both very good vendors.

I would recommend April to all of my friends and family. I am still getting compliments on how much everyone love my wedding and how much fun it was and I owe it alll to April.

I can never thank you enough for the wedding of my dreams. I still keep thinking someone is going to pinch me and wake me up.

An Event To Remember,

PLANNING

Roughly a week or two after the engagement, I googled wedding planners in the Southwest Florida Area and the Simple Elegant Weddings website surfaced. I decided to give them a call which lead to our 1st meeting.
After less than 10 min, I could tell that April and Lisa were going to be the best fit for myself and Justin. April was very organized and I was able to see some of her past events. The pictures blew my mind and I was very excited to start the process. The next step was figuring out her cost of service and when she told me I kinda panicked a bit but when she guaranteed I would save in other areas what I had spent on her, I was ok and it was absolutely true and more....... but let me say this her services were well worth the money! I would advise any bride to be if you can afford it or find a way to, please hire Simple Elegant Weddings because they will make your day run so smoothly! During the process, April, Lisa and Corey connected me to the numerous professional vendors throughout the Southwest Florida Area. It was so nice because she connected the vendors directly and I didn't have to worry about a thing...

WEDDING DAY

If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. It was absolutely Beautiful :) The amazing purple and silver candy buffet, photo booth ( was a HiT... even the grandparents took photos), the lounge area, and the lovely decor. Our guest loved the event and it was definitely " A EVENT TO REMEMBER". It was Simple, Elegant, PERFECT! Several of our guests even mentioned that the event was the best wedding that they ever attended and that overall they had an awesome time - Most importantly so did I, Justin, and our parents.

RECOMMENDATION

Find a way to afford a wedding planner and hire Simple Elegant Weddings. You will be glad you did.......

We originally thought we would be married on Sanibel so we began searching for someone to help. We found Simple Elegant Weddings. We spoke with April, Erin and Lisa several times regarding the wedding. We were impressed from moment one. We wanted so many special thing since I am from India and my husband from Russia originally. This team was more than willing to help in every way possible and push is to stay within the budget we had originally mentioned and we did, actually below.

We flew down and met with this team and knew we had who we needed to create our wedding day. The planning began and was so easy until (lol) my family informed me that no one could travel due to fanboy issues. Ok - first thing I did was call April at an extremely late hour and to my surprise she was right there on the other end of the phone to console me and she immediately began offering a resolution. She was amazing through it all.

We relocated the ceremony outside of the Simple Elegant Weddings home area. I was at first a bit nervous about the change but quickly saw my dream as April kept saying would the same perfect. It was that and more!

It is easily said and I am witness to the statement "Simple Elegant Weddings can create your dream wedding at any location or venue without skipping a beat". Or as April says "No hiccups allowed for your perfect day".

I will never be able to thank you enough!

I you are looking for a team that makes you feel comfortable and relaxed, you have found them!

We were a bit nervous about traveling to South Florida for our elopement since no one knew about it we couldn't discuss anything with anyone but April and Lisa. This team to the few details I have them and created as promise my "My Dream Come True"! This is the perfect logo for Simple Elegant Weddings.

Our friends and family were shocked and even more so when they got the link in just a few days to see what a beautiful wedding we had and how awesome a job Lorraine and Patrick did with music and photos.

Don't lose your date with Simple Eleabt Weddings. They are worth much more than contracted for.

Thank you team, job perfectly done!

I highly recommend Simple Elegant Weddings to any bride getting married in the Naples/Marco Island area.

My husband proposed to me on Naples beach, but I didn't know much about the area or Florida in general since we I live In England. I was lucky enough to stumble across Simple Elegant Weddings on Weddingwire and Google one day and set a day and time for our next trip to the US to meet with April. I described the kind of vibe I was looking for and once we arrived, the first place she showed us was the venue we chose for our ceremony. She had already learned everything she needed to know about us to choose the perfect location.

I always joked with my mom that I wanted to get married on the beach but not in the sand... but I figured that was impossible........ April and Lauren made it happen! She showed us a beautiful little park area right on the beach that was absolutely perfect. Then the perfect location for the reception made our day compete and just as I had always dreamed.

My family and friends came a long way for my wedding and guess what, it was a dream come true for us ALL as The Simple Elegant Weddings team promised! I know this was because of the prompt and constant communication with April and Lauren on the planning as well as with Patrick and Tony on music and extras.

April and Lauren suggested all my vendors and they were all Great from Lorraine doing my photography, Ginger for hair and makeup, Jamie doing my music, Yum Yum for my cake and her team for all the extras! You can trust any decision this team makes for you, guaranteed!

This team is in in a class of their own. Don't pass them buy and regret it.

We love this team!

The Simple Elegant Weddings team is absolutely amazing! From the moment I met with you, thru the planning phase, wedding day and days to follow ~ you were perfect!

My checklists and follow-ups were great, they helped so much. No matter when I needed you, you were there throughout the entire planning phase. Then wedding day ~ your team was there for me at every turn to calm me and make sure everything and everyone was taken care of. Then the reception was a breeze thanks to your team, not to mention sooooo much fun. Finally, you met me at the airport with my recorded licenses so I could obtain my honeymoon rate. You are priceless as others have stated.

I had the pleasure of meeting another of your brides while obtaining my license. It was great to exchange the great things we both had to say about this team! What lucky girls we both were!!!!

Thank you for being there for me from start to finish!

When I contacted Simple Elegant Weddings I got an immediate response which won me over from the beginning. the entire team responded promptly and progessionally regardless of te time or reason.

I was told I could and would be able to reach them via phone, email or text. It was the absolute truth which made the planning process so easy and stress free! I emailed April at 2:00 am once (maybe twice) and got an immediate response. I was beyond impressed. I wasn't even gone the opportunity to be a bridezilla, lol.

They honestly made me feel like I was their only client. I even called the day we were to arrive with a late flight and Patrick met us at the airport and transported us to obtain out marriage license. We would have never gotten them without his help.

My wedding was perfect and that is because I chose a great team (Simple Elegant Wedding). Thank you for beig exact what you promised; PERFECT!

See you in 10 ;)

April proved to be the best wedding planner imaginable! For the months preceding the wedding she made herself available to us at any time for questions and/or concerns we may have had. As "the date" drew closer she was very accommodating with any requests we had and reassuring that all would be o.k. (and it was). There are always little glitches with any ceremony, but April and her staff did their best to make things right. I really couldn't have imagined a better experience!

I thought I was going to plan my wedding and reception myself until I began ready horror stories about couples that did just that and ended up forgetting things and having their day end in disaster. I knew that was not what I wanted for mine and Brock's beginning to our life together.

I started searching for the perfect planner. I met with several and then came across Simple Elegant Weddings here on Weddingwire. Their pictures where great, pricing was great, reviews were great and their guarantee was even better. My first thought was "too good too be true". I made the appointment for a consultation and met with April Kelley. I knew after that meeting that I had found my planner. I contracted with Simple Elegant Weddings 18 months ago and had the best 18 months of planning anyone could ask for. April, Stacy, Lauren and Patrick gave me everything I asked for and more!

What they display, their professionalism, attention to detail and dedication can not be presented in a review alone. This team is absolutely PRICELESS!!!!

Your logo is perfect "110% an nothing less in creating my dream come true". I can never thank you enough!

I thought I was going to plan my wedding and reception myself until I began ready horror stories about couples that did just that and ended up forgetting things and having their day end in disaster. I knew that was not what I wanted for mine and Brock's beginning to our life together.

I started searching for the perfect planner. I met with several and then came across Simple Elegant Weddings here on Weddingwire. Their pictures where great, pricing was great, reviews were great and their guarantee was even better. My first thought was "too good too be true". I made the appointment for a consultation and met with April Kelley. I knew after that meeting that I had found my planner.

The moment I received orders and found out that I would be deployed for a year I knew I had to move up my engagement and get married.

With only six weeks to plan a full wedding I began searching and found Simple Elegabt Weddings. I am so happy I did!

I told April and Lauren exactly what I wanted and that's exactly what I received along with their special surprises.

You have me the wedding of my dreams as promised, thank you!

I will tell every military couple I know about you.

I interviewed several planners and decided to go with April Kelley with Simple Elegant Weddings for my wedding.

We are on my way now to Hawaii for our honeymoon which April planned for us and have no doubt that it will be as perfect as the welcome guests, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception and our farewell brunch!

All our family and guests could talk about is how great everything was. April and her staff (Patrick, Brian, Ginger, JulieAnn and Kim) definitely exceeded what I expected and contracted with them. The little extras and surprises you did for us will never be forgotten and added that little bit of Wow for us, thank you from the bottom of our heart! I got everything and more that I wanted and under budget as she guaranteed, which men's more to enjoy Hawaii with!

I was do scared when we decided on a destination wedding on St Pete Beach. We did our research and got quote from several companies. We quickly chose Dimple Elegabt Weddings for there pricing but most importantly the prompt response by April and Lauren. They quickly took charge and began working on the details we provided for them. They both helped select the perfect beach house and caterer for our ceremony and reception.

From the moment we began planning until the day we left Tampa, Simple Elegabt Weddings made everything we ask for perfect. Our family and friends have no stopped talking about how great it was.

I must say I never thought have a destination wedding would be this perfect. It absolutely was just tha, perfect!

Anyone considering planning a wedding in Florida I strongly suggest you reach out to the Simple Elegant Weddings staff. They are perfect!

Her name was April Kelley with Simple Elegant Weddings. She explained what her company could do for me to have a REAL wedding and gave us her business card.

I decided not to have that courthouse wedding and contacted April at 11:30 pm on Friday night. Yes! She answered and was as enthusiastic as she was earlier that day in the court house. I told her exactly what I wanted gof my wedding the next day and what my budget was.

April, Patrick and Lorraine gave me exactly that and MORE!!! My wedding was PERFECT!

I chose to have a wedding in Fort Lauderdale with just a two month notice. I began searching and found Simple Elegant Weddings. I contacted April and she assured me that she could plan my wedding day and it would be "A dream come true"! I must say with such short notice I was terrified and now I realize there was no reason to be, April made my wedding day the one I had always dreamed. April and Patrick had my entire weekend planned so and it ran smoothly. My rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception and day after brunch were more than I had imagined. My family and friends were very impressed with what was created in such a short time from Oregon. Lorraine was our photographer and I could not have asked for a more perfect fit! She worked with each and everyone at our wedding. lorraine helped us unwind and also added fun to our day. I can not thank April and her staff enough. My wedding was just as I always dreamed of because of Simple Elegant Weddings! Highly recommended for anyone planning a wedding from afar!

My husband, April and her team planed and executed a surprise vow renewal for me. I arrived at the beach expecting to work and my friends and family were waiting there for me. I was so surprised and even more surprised that they managed to plan the whole thing with so many people involved and no one told me. The set up was beautiful, the reception was fantastic.
April and her staff were amazing, thank you so much.

Everyone fulfilled my dreams, my thoughts, and any and all wishes. Everything was perfect. Planned for 1 1/2 years with April and the only complaint I have is that the day went by way to fast! Lorraine was amazing as well. The pictures were unbelievable. Im so glad I put my wedding in to the hands of a true professional.

Even though my husband and I were one of many couples and living in Missouri I felt that April and our photographer Lorraine were completely focused on us. They were very friendly and always helpful. After our initial contract was written up I realized we didn't have enough money in the budget and asked April to tear it up and start again from scratch, April never missed a beat. I was allowed to personalize our ceremony and put together a mix of the ceremony options April provided plus some words of my own and it felt really nice to have a ceremony I created that was tailored to me and my husband. I really liked our photos and felt our photographer was trying to get us the best photos she could keeping in mind what we wanted and what would be flattering to us. We were even a little late to our reception because Lorraine was dedicated to get all the shots we wanted and to take advantage of the beautiful sky that appeared out of no where with brilliant reds and purples. I absolutely loved my wedding day and wouldn't change a thing.

April and her staff were amazing!!! I couldn't asked for a better wedding planner and officiant. Since I was deployed oversea with limited communication access, I didn't know how I would pull of a wedding in least then two months but she took care of everything. I basically just had to show up with my dress!!! She took my ideas and a few pics and turned it into an elegant but fun wedding. She treated the wedding like it was her own...took care of every little details ensuring everything was perfect. The wedding turned out better than what I dream my wedding to be. Friends and families can't believe how lovely the wedding turned out in such a short notice!!! I still get comments about it to this day!!! The fact that she and her staffs make the wedding stress-free for the bride and groom...is priceless. A fabulous job by Simple Elegant Wedding. Highly recommended to anyone who wanted a wedding beyond their dream and stress-free.

It was fate that I found Simple Elegant Weddings and April Kelley. Let me explain why. I had a dream of what I would look like as a bride since I was a little girl and made my first trip to Disney World. I also knew exactly what I wanted my wedding and reception to look like. I even planned it high school for a project. When Hank proposed to me I knew immediately that it had to be Valentines Day and it had to be just like my senior project detailed. I started searching for someone to help me do this and I found April. The moment I met with her for the initial meeting I knew she was perfect for me. I brought along my book from 13 years earlier and she suggested venues, vendors and a few changes to accent our day. I was sold from day one and let her take over. When I arrived at the ceremony location, I was in tears because it was MORE than I had ever imagined! Then the reception; April and everyone that worked along side her were great and made us, our bridal party, friends and family feel so at ease. I am a local bride and I had a guests list of 200 so I expected a few hiccups but there was none. To top my day off and confirm that I had found Simple Elegant Weddings by fate, we had gone out for sunset photos and April looked at our photographer (Lorraine) and said "Donna looks just like Belle. What a dream come true". She had no idea that standing in Disney as a little girl, Belle was my favorite and that's what I said I wanted to look like when I got big and had a marriage (lol). I will never be able to thank Simple Elegant Weddings for making my dream wedding a reality just as they advertise. Thank you WeddingWire for showing casing such great vendors. You have a class act here. I already have three friends books with April for their weddings.

April Kelley of Simple Elegant Weddings was great to work with. She helped to keep my daughter's wedding affordable and beautifully elegant at the same time. She was extremely helpful with tips regarding local resources and cost savings. She was extremely generous with her time and expertise. She was the officiant and did an outstanding job. We had our wedding at Casa Ybel on Sanibel Island, Florida. It would not have happened at all, without April. She was present, engaged and working all throughout the night to make everything appear seamless. April recommended Lorraine Mason as photographer who also did an outstanding job! I would recommend April and Lorraine 100%

We are from Canada and knew we wanted to be married in the US. We were scared and worried about finding the company or person to so this for us. We found April Kelley and Simple Elegant Weddings. April did our planning, Julie was our photographer, Patrick took care of our music and coordinated all day for Scott and our grooms men and Lauren spent the day with me and my girls. We all had so much fun and our day was perfect. I will never be able to thank you enough for what each of contributed to our wedding day. Anyone that is lucky enough to work with this team has no idea how wonderful and dedicated they are!

April and her team were invested in our day and committed to making it a spectacular, once in a lifetime event. April tailored our wedding package to reflect all of the details we wanted, while also keeping me from ever feeling rushed or overwhelmed. She kept me laser-focused. It's scary planning a wedding via email and phone conversations. We never met until a couple of days before the wedding. I never taste-tested the food, the cake, saw the table settings or the venue. April did a phenomenal job of communicating and of listening to what was important to me and my fiance. It turned out lovely. She also did a wonderful job of helping me locate accommodations for our 40 out of town guests and she made reservations at a spectacular restaurant on Sanibel for the rehearsal dinner. She really does have an eye for detail.

Overall everything was pretty good. I was a little disappointed that the officiant didn't have a mic because no one could hear him. I was also disappointed that the person sent to help with the wedding ceremony didn't really know what was going on. There were a few small things that we wanted that were missed. However we loved our photographer she did a really great job!
