Karen walked our daughter through every detail of her wedding. From the very beginning when the big day was no more than a dream and few pintrist pics till the last sparkler was lite and the bride and groom were on their way, she made sure everything ran smoothly. She found creative ways to make their dreams a reality within their budget. On the big day, her and her team were there, pulling all the details together in a way that was unobtrusive, but supportive so that we could sit back and enjoy every moment. I highly recommend Karen and her staff. St Augustine Weddings and Special Events is a win win all around.

Karen did an outstanding job in helping me with my wedding! She was friendly, courteous and handled all of the necessary details so I could enjoy my wedding weekend. One thing that very helpful was that she prepared a detailed itinerary for everyone involved in the wedding so everyone knew where to be and when. It made the weekend so much easier, all of bridesmaids knew exactly when they were getting their hair and makeup done, when and where to be when pictures and began and so much more! Karen worked so well with the hotel and other vendors as well as being present throughout the day to make sure everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend her services :)

Karen did an outstanding job from beginning to end. While we weren't certain if the services of a planner would be needed, in hindsight, the answer was clearly yes, and this was certainly the company to use. She was incredibly well organized, detail oriented, and her years of experience resulted in a magnificent event. Her expertise with vendors also helped us save some money. Finally, the event was so much nicer as she handled all of the details so the family could enjoy this special occasion.

Karen exceeded my expectations throughout the planning process. Her experience was highly beneficial. She knew most of my vendors personally and was always able to reach them when I could not. She made extremely useful suggestions when planning the reception timeline which made everything run smoothly. She also proved to be very flexible due to unexpected circumstances. For example, a hurricane hit northeast Florida the week before my wedding and she not only communicated with me throughout the whole ordeal, but she was also communicating with my vendors to come up with alternative solutions to the issues caused by the hurricane. On my wedding day itself, she was quick on her feet to make changes due to unexpected circumstances, such as strong winds and my husband being ill. She kept everything running smoothly and tweaked things here and there in a discrete manner. My guests never knew about the small changes throughout the evening. Overall, it was a wonderful experience working with Karen. She is truly an expert and such a sweet woman to work with. She treats each client as if they are her only client and will go above and beyond to make sure the bride and groom have the best wedding day possible. Thank you for everything, Karen!

If I could rate Karen more, I would. We clicked from the first day we met. We booked Karen for our "day of coordinator" for our wedding at Hammock Dunes Club and that was the best decision we made. She was quick to respond whenever I had a question and she would meet anywhere I asked her to discuss details of the wedding. For a "day of coordinator" she went above and beyond and really took the stress out of planning a wedding, and took the stress out of the day of. I never could have imagined all the little details that goes into a planning a wedding, and she broke things down so simply so I didn't get overwhelmed. I did not have to worry about anything on the day of the wedding. She took care of talking with all of the vendors, helped decorate the venue with all of our provided decorations and centerpieces, she kept us on track with time. Things really would have been a mess if we didn't have Karen, and I would recommend her for any special event.

Karen Erwin is absolutely the best wedding planner in St. Augustine! My daughter lives in Texas and wanted her wedding at home in St. Augustine. From the moment I spoke with her, I knew Karen was who we needed to coordinate, help plan, organize, and create the wedding of my daughter's dreams. We chose her Custom Wedding Coordination Package despite me being fairly crafty and creative. It was by far the best decision and the best money we spent on the wedding! Karen spent endless hours talking to my daughter and getting a true feel for what she wanted. Karen made fantastic recommendations on vendors, accommodations, etiquette, and specialty items that fit into our budget. She was able to negotiate contracts that enabled us to receive much more than we could have alone. We also used her resourcefulness with our save the dates, invitations and rehearsal dinner invites. Karen is the epitome of organization and insight and through the many phone calls and meetings, we always had a specific agenda to keep us on track and moving toward the big day. Karen went with us in meeting our vendors and knew the questions to ask that I had not thought of. She also set up hair and makeup trials and the entire wedding party looked amazing! With all the different components of a wedding, Karen covered them all so incredibly well. I kept hearing how stressful it is to plan a wedding, but I can honestly say, with Karen's help..it was a piece of cake. We just kept to her planning and expertise and my daughter's day was truly stunning. One of the most valuable things I gained from hiring Karen Erwin was gaining a friend. I truly enjoyed spending time with her and can't wait to just meet for lunch when she has time. So if you think you can handle planning a wedding on your own like I initially did, please think again and use Karen Erwin and St. Augustine Weddings. I promise you will not regret it and will be over the moon with her!

Karen with St. Augustine Weddings & Special Events is the reason my wedding day was the best day of my life! She took all the stress out of our day for my family and me by contacting vendors to confirm arrival times, setting up decorations we provided including the centerpieces, keeping the event and my guests moving smoothly, and handled things I didn’t even know of. Not only did she make my wedding day perfect, but also all of her help prior to the wedding were beyond what we could have imagined. About a month and half before my wedding I decided I wasn’t happy with the people doing my hair and makeup. I mentioned this to Karen in one of my phone conferences with her. Within 2 hours she had called around and found a salon that was still available to do hair & makeup for me and my entire wedding party.! She didn’t just give me some numbers so I could call around myself she actually went the extra mile. She was also my savior on the day of our rehearsal. 5 hours prior to our rehearsal start time, one of my pregnant bridesmaids fainted and had to be taken to the hospital. As I sat in the ER room with her, another bridesmaid and my mom knew we wouldn’t make it to rehearsal on time. With one phone call to Karen (3 hours before it was to begin) she contacted the venue, my pastor, and everyone else involved and organized the rehearsal to be at a later time. She completely took all the stress and worry from my mom and I so we could focus on my bridesmaid’s health. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and organization surpassed all expectations. I honestly do not know how anyone could have a wedding without Karen!

Karen Erwin of St. Augustine Weddings & Special Events is AMAZING! She provided much more than full service wedding planning for us. She truly went above and beyond on a consistent basis during the months leading up to our wedding. My wife has health issues that make following rigid schedules and appointments challenging at times. Karen was extremely thoughtful and considerate of this, and planned our schedule in a way that would cause the least amount of physical and emotional stress as possible. She is meticulous, focused, and professional, which allowed us to not get bogged down with the minutiae of the wedding planning. Overall, this made something potentially stressful and overwhelming fun and enjoyable. Karen also employs several assistants who were just as professional and mindful as she is. The entire team is top notch.
Karen was a joy to work with, and we all became genuine friends throughout the process. She did a wonderful job of keeping a balance between being pleasant and amicable, but also displayed a willingness to "push" us along as needed to stay on track. My wife and I have a tendency to procrastinate, but Karen never let us veer off course
Our wedding had many challenging elements to plan for, but Karen was able to put it all together seamlessly, exactly the way we envisioned. We had a New Orleans inspired wedding, with a 2nd line march from the church to the reception. The weather reports leading up to our special day were less than favorable. Karen did a marvelous job of providing us with a backup plan if we were unable to pull off our 2nd line march due to rain. Fortunately, fate was on our side and the sun shined for us, but she had us covered for all possibilities. This relieved all the stess of the situation and really allowed us to just enjoy the day. This was such an invaluable service. Needless to say, I would highly recommend St. Augustine Weddings & Special Events to anyone in need of wedding planning services!
