STOP RIGHT HERE...DO NOT PASS GO unless you are making that call to hire Karen Erwin, owner of St Augustine Weddings & Special Events . If I could give an overall rating of PRICELESS I would. Karen's attention to detail, organization and true commitment to me as a bride far surpassed my expectation. Additionally, she was our invitation consultant as well as our additional wedding decorator. I picked all of our vendors but I knew wedding stresses were nothing I needed to worry about with Karen. She is extremely responsive, informative and a true wedding professional. She thinks of the little things to make your day that more special. All of my vendors made sure to comment to me how "on top of things she is"!!! She truly loves what she does and there isn't any other "Executive Director" that I would have chosen for my special day.

If you don't think you need a wedding coordinator/planner, think again. We had 3 months to plan a wedding because the venue my wife wanted was about to go under construction. We had done most of the planning ourselves, lined up all of the vendors, and had pretty much every detailed planned. There is only so much you can do yourself. We hired Karen to oversee the preparation and running of the reception as we would not be in a position to do so. She delivered above and beyond what we could have possibly expected. She coordinated all of our vendors and everything went off perfectly. Something always goes wrong on the wedding day or some kind of problem, at least that is what every other married man told me before the wedding. Karen made sure that didn't happen and even helped us solve a billing issue over a month after the wedding. She was constantly in communication with our vendors and my wife and I. Planning a wedding is very stressful, do yourself a favor, hire Karen and let her take a lot of the stress off of you and rest assured that once the task is given to her you need not worry about it being completed to your satisfaction in a timely and professional manner. My only regret is that we had not hired her sooner in the process.

Thanks to Karen at St. Augustine Weddings and Special Events, our wedding day was absolutely a fairy tale come true for me and my daughter. Being the mother of the bride of an "older" and now very independent bride (35!), Karen was the perfect solution for keeping things moving along, calm and stress free between me and my daughter - who now had lots of ideas of her own! Karen's planning and organization skills are so amazing and so helpful, especially the timeline she prepared for us for the rehearsal and wedding days. She thought of everything! I am a native of St. Augustine and I have to tell you that Karen is known for her talents, experience and ability to coordinate any event. Her connections are unlimited and she will provide you with a day that you will never forget. She was always available, even "after hours", and she really cares about every single detail of how you want your event to be. I highly recommend that you choose St. Augustine Weddings and Special Events if you are planning a wedding or any special event here in St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States and now one of the most popular destination wedding cities in the U.S. Karen is a woman of integrity, style and grace who gives your event 100% so that you have no worries and can actually enjoy it!

I can't say enough regarding my experience with St. Augustine Weddings!! I live in NYC and planned my wedding long distance in St. Augustine, Fl. Our wedding venue highly recommended we work with St. Augustine Weddings & Special Events, "Karen Erwin is the best". Karen Erwin made all of my wedding dreams come true!! Karen and her staff are organized, professional, thorough and knowledgable. Having her team involved in my wedding was the best wedding gift I could have asked for! Karen has relationships with all the best wedding vendors in the St. Augustine area and will make sure your special day is flawless. I work in the project management profession and I can tell you that there is nothing better than having someone else keep you on track and within budget. Karen provided me with a list of wedding timelines including all required tasks and due dates. Karen also guided me with the following: wedding timelines, vendor management, hair artist, make-up artist, nails, scheduling a bridal party event and selecting a cake vendor and much MORE. We were over the moon with how our wedding day turned out. Currently my mom and I both are going through Karen Erwin withdrawal as she became part of family throughout the entire experience. I would not take any risks when selecting your wedding/event planner, you will not be sorry you selected St. Augustine Weddings and Special Events - they are AMAZING!!!

Could not have made it without her! Mrs. Karen Erwin's services was by far the best value we got on all of our Wedding purchases! She has the system down and with other savings that she provided us more than paid for her services! Positive, Productive, and Professional all the way through! We were glad to have someone who cared as much about our event as we did!

Karen was such a joy to work with over the course of the year we spent planning our wedding!! I sadly lost my mother a few years before our wedding took place and was not sure who to go to with all of my many wedding related questions, I dont think I ever sent her an email without having a response in less than an hour... Her recomended vendors could not have been better!! I honestly do not think I could have been calmer on our wedding day knowing that Karen was in charge :)

Karen was able to give us the wedding of our dreams!!!!

If you are looking for someone who will do a wonderful job for your event, you will be very happy with the job Karen Erwin will do for you. She truly cares that your event will be exactly what you're looking for. She knows
her business and I know from personal experience that she shows her clients that they are important to her. No question I had was silly. She helped us get the things done that we needed to do in a timely manner. She told us about things that we never would have thought to ask. We could not have spent money in a better way than to have Karen guide us through our daughter's wedding. We had a great event planner, and we have a friend. I would recommend Karen with question.

There is not a lot in life that exceeds expectations, but working with Karen Erwin of St. Augustine Weddings and Special Events was one of those times. Our situation was a limited budget and bride and groom in law school and Karen's expertise enabled us to have an enjoyable, stress free planning process and beautiful ceremony and reception while staying within budget. Because of Karen's knowledge of vendors and her recommendations, she made all the decision making very streamlined and I know saved us more money than her cost. Every vendor we used was fantastic. As mother of the bride, with Karen at the helm at the rehearsal and on the wedding day, I was able to completely enjoy this special time and not once concern myself with any of the behind the scene details. I loved having the timelines Karen provided and the reminders along the way of what needed to accomplish when. I highly recommend Karen Erwin and St. Augustine Weddings and found her service invaluable in making my daughter's wedding day wonderful.

Karen Erwin was recommended via word of mouth and it was the best recommendation I ever cold have received. Karen truly made all my daughter’s visions and dreams of the perfect wedding come true. Karen created this amazing dreamlike evening. No detail was left unattended.

Karen oversaw a flawless transition from wedding to cocktail hour to reception – and all the events that took place during the reception and after were perfect.

She arranged a Limo, a Photographer, a videographer, a fabulous emotional wedding ceremony, town trolley’s giving the guests a tour and bringing them to the reception while the limousine took the wedding party around town for beautiful pictures and video’s. The reception had mood lighting, their initials on the floor, an interactive DJ playing great music, the food was “to die for”, the reception hall was so beautifully decorated – Karen created a wonderful décor that combined the old with the modern. The cocktail hour served hors d’ourves and an open bar that kept all the
Guests happy. The reception was so fun and relaxed it was never noticed how everything progressed like clock work. And afterwards the bride and groom were met outside with sparklers while they took a horse and carriage ride around town.

The next week several quests said they loved everything about the wedding and had so much fun. In fact they said that they were still having fun just thinking about it.

Karen has a true and rare talent for bring the imagined into reality.
