Karen Erwin and her team were absolutely the best decision we made in the wedding planning process. From the moment we first spoke on the phone it was clear that Karen has had plenty of experience in wedding planning and event planning in North Florida. Everyone asks me how it was possible to have so much fun planning a wedding and my answer every time is: Karen Erwin.

The wedding schedule was absolutely perfect. She had every detail included on the timeline so that everything ran smoothly. As a bride who gets easily stressed, I found that the entire wedding weekend ran smoothly because of how the schedule was planned out. All we had to do was show up. And that is absolutely priceless, especially for my parents who were able to just enjoy the day without having to worry about details.

Detail oriented is probably one of Karen's stand out qualities. She takes note of every detail and thought from her bride and parents. We would be having a conversation a month before the wedding and she would reference something that I mentioned wanting in our conversation from a year before.

Karen and her team are a MUST HAVE for every bride and family planning a wedding. She helped us stay in budget and ultimately ended up saving us a lot of money. Planning a wedding out of town can be very tricky for some, but Karen was able to help us select vendors, travel plans, and accommodations that made all the decision making very easy on our end.

I cannot say enough good things about how amazing the actual wedding day was. I never felt rushed. I was able to soak in all of the festivities because I knew Karen would have everything handled. She brought our vision to life. Karen was there for us every step of the way. She was so easy to get in touch with throughout all of the planning. Very responsive to texts, emails, and phone calls.

A wedding planner is the best investment you can make in your wedding planning and if you want the BEST, get Karen Erwin.

I could go on about Karen for pages but to keep it short, she was hands down the best decision we made. Karen is the ultimate professional and the most detailed and organized person I have worked with. Her best talent however lies is making you feel like nothing is ever a problem, even when you have a problem. I had such confidence in Karen that if anything came up, I literally brushed it off and said "it's OK, Karen's got this", which is the most amazing feeling when dealing with the stress of a wedding. Hire Karen immediately and your wedding will be perfect, as ours was.

Our daughter's wedding was at the same time as the 450th anniversary of St. Augustine, making the logistics extremely complicated. At our first meeting with Karen, she made it very clear that our event would be wonderful and she embraced the difficult challenges with a smile. The bride was in New York and traveled so was often unavailable and was the opposite of a Bridezilla. Karen did a magnificent job of keeping her on track, also making her aware of future decisions without causing our daughter, Lauren, undue stress. Karen was enthusiastic about some of Lauren's unorthodox ideas and was able to direct her to vendors who could implement Lauren's vision. Karen had to meet with the St. Augustine City Police, Sheriff's office, major event planners and several others to coordinate traffic patterns, parking, etc. as this was also Labor Day and the busiest day in St. Augustine's history. Karen kept in constant contact with us to keep us informed and to assure us we had nothing to worry about, The day of the wedding we were able to relax and enjoy because Karen and her efficient staff had everything under control. One of Karen's greatest gifts is to quickly assess the bride and her family to bring to fruition their thoughts and ideas. Lauren's tearful comment was "my wedding was more than she could have ever hoped for." We credit Karen for making all this possible and helping to create beautiful lifetime memories.

Karen is amazing! She was so knowledgeable and knew exactly how to make our wedding day special. Throughout the planning process, Karen was always easy to reach if I ever had a question or concern. She even helped calm me down when I thought I wanted to switch venues 6 months before the wedding. Karen even orchestrated the smoothest wedding rehearsal is ever been to, which really showed on the wedding day. Everyone knew exactly where to be and what to do, all because of Karen.

Her staff is so talented and that truly showed on the wedding day when they set up both the reception room and cocktail hour pre-function room. They really paid attention to detail and took into account all of the decorations I had and where I wanted them to go. I cannot recommend Karen and her team enough!

Mrs. Karen was the best decision that I made! She was always there to help out. She kept me very calm through the whole process and kept reassuring us that everything was going to be great. The day of my wedding could not have run any smoother then it did. She was not under my wing at all times but she was always within distance to help or fix anything I needed. I highly recommend Mrs. Karen for anyone who is planning a wedding. I will always remember her as the one who made my day perfect!

I was torn on whether or not to hire a day of coordinator. I was about 3 months out from my wedding and feeling fairly comfortable and thought I could probably do it myself. I was encouraged to call Karen Erwin with St. Augustine Weddings and Events and I am so glad I did!

First off, Karen is very professional and right away I felt confident that she knew what she was doing. After our first phone call, I could feel a weight lift off my shoulders and knew that Karen would take care of everything for my wedding day. She does more than just "day of" work. She works right away reviewing contracts and asks tons of questions so she fully understands the wedding you want. At the one month mark, I talked more to Karen than my own mom.

I had planned an outdoor ceremony and reception. The week of Karen and I had been tracking the weather and it did not look good. The day before my wedding, on Friday, I made the decision to move the entire reception indoors and Karen took care of EVERYTHING. Not only did I move the reception indoors, it also got pushed back a few hours due to venue availability. She called every single vendor notifying them the change and redid the entire timeline. My reception was fabulous and you couldn't tell that it was "Plan B." I couldn't imagine having to do that myself on the day before my wedding. It was flawless.

Every vendor I worked with said "Karen is the best." They are right. If you are looking for a planner or a day of coordinator, you will be in the best hands with St. Augustine Weddings and Special Events.

If you want a great wedding planning experience, hire Karen! Hands down, you will not regret it!! Karen is AMAZING at her job and she is truly the best in the business! I could not have imagined my wedding planning and wedding day without her! She is very knowledgeable and has a calming personality, which helps make wedding planning a little less chaotic. She is helpful throughout the planning process, but exceptionally so for the two weeks leading up to the wedding day. The wedding night, her and her crew work like a well-oiled machine in making all the details fall perfectly into place. You can rest assured that your wedding day will run as perfect as possible with her in charge. She handles any extra details without a bit of stress to the bride and groom. She even checked us into our lodging and had our overnight bags waiting for us when we got there! She makes you a perfect timeline for the week of the wedding, which makes things run so smoothly. When we met with other vendors to discuss the details, they would always tell us "Karen is the best!" We knew she was fabulous before our wedding day, but the fact that our wedding night ran so seamlessly only solidified our thoughts. It can be stressful attempting to finalize details with all of the vendors individually, so Karen handles all this for you. As a bride, she will make you feel at ease throughout the process. HIRE KAREN! She will not only keep you sane, you will meet someone who truly cherishes her job and puts in 110% all the time. I'm blessed to have found a wedding planner that I now consider a friend.

My daughter, Allee, got engaged in Feb of 2014 and the wedding date was set for Oct. 25, 2014. She lives in St. Simons Island. Ga., I live in Centerville,Ga and the wedding was to be in St. Augustine, Fl. Upon meeting Karen, I knew I wanted her to be our wedding planner! She is so knowledgable and professional and her quiet, calm personality attracted Allee and I to her. Every single vendor that she suggested far exceeded our expections. Karen walked through every meeting with us and watched my money as if it were her own. She always kept us on track with a timeline. The phone conservations were such a great help because I didn't have to travel to Fl so much. The wedding ran so smoothly and I was able to enjoy it because Karen took care of EVERYTHING! She is an unbelieveable wedding planner and we were so blessed to have found her. Now I feel like she is part of my family!

If I listed all the ways in which Karen and her team exceeded my expectations, this post would never end. Perhaps, instead, the best endorsement I can give her is that I was never nervous about my wedding, even on THE day, because I knew it was in such wonderful hands! I was not running around at the last minute trying to finish things up, nor was I ever anxious about my vendors arriving and delivering the right things at the right time. Instead, I was relaxed and able to enjoy my weekend with family and friends.

Karen is extremely professional and organized. She has a trusted network of vendors and made excellent recommendations for my destination wedding. When I came into town to meet with vendors, Karen planned my schedule so that my time was used productively and efficiently. Her vast experience meant that she knew all the elements that needed to come together and handled them all with ease. I highly, HIGHLY recommend her services!

Thank you so much, Karen, for helping me put together a perfect wedding, but especially for making it such a wonderful and stress-free experience for me and my family!

Karen was the most amazing wedding planner ever!!! I was an out of town bride who only visited St. Augustine 3 times during the 13 months that I planned my wedding and Karen definitely went the extra mile to make sure our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. Each and every vender she suggested was the perfect fit for us. Being from out of town we would've had no idea who to call and she took care of every detail. I even changed my wedding from outside to inside on the day of the rehearsal and no one could tell. It ended up be more beautiful than the original plan. She attended every appointment with me, and even called me while on her vacation 2 weeks before my wedding! Her team the day of the wedding made me feel very comfortable. We walked into our reception and it was more than anything I could've ever dreamed and I know it was due to Karen Erwin and her amazing team. They made me feel at home. From the beginning my mother said she didn't want to lift a finger the day of the wedding and I can definitely say neither of us had to do a thing and it was the most beautiful wedding we have ever been too. I cannot say enough about how patient, caring, understanding, and helpful Karen is. I am honestly upset that I will not be talking to her once a week! There is no one else in the world that I would've trusted with biggest day of my life except her. If you are getting married in St. Augustine, FL there is truly no one better than Karen Erwin. I will never be able to thank her enough for everything she did for myself, my new husband, and our families. It was truly a magical day and it's all thanks to her.
