Kerri!! Words cannot express how thankful we are, how appreciative we are and how lucky we are to have had you be a part of our big day! I cannot express enough how perfect the day was, how smoothly everything went, how I didnt have to worry about ANYTHING! Even when I found out my toasting flutes were missing you had already found them and secured them safely in our room before I could even finish telling you they were missing!!!
From the moment you came bursting through the Starbucks door at our first meeting we knew that your energy was a perfect match for us! You have been so wonderful to work with, a fabulous source of information and advice and just such a pleasure! You were always available when we needed you and got back to us promptly.
If there was one word to describe you and your team it would be Phenomenal! Thank you for helping us plan and have the most perfect most magical day of our lives!!!! You deserve an A+++!!!

Kerri and her staff are AMAZING! Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication which made our wedding so perfect in every way. You all are easy to work with, knowledgeable, and well respected in the OBX wedding industry. Our wedding was "smooth as grits" as they say in the South and we must thank The Proper Setting for all you did to make it that way! :*

All I have to say is WOW! We weren't sure we would want to hire a day-of wedding coordinator, but now we couldn't be happier we did, and we are so happy we were lucky enough to have Kerri and her team there for our big day. From the first time we spoke on the phone, we instantly connected, and I knew she was the right person for the job. She is incredibly organized and on top of everything, and genuinely cares about you and your best interests. She wants you to have an amazing day, and as other brides stated, she feels like yours is the only wedding in the world.
Kerri was an absolute pleasure to work with, incredibly sweet and super professional. Leading up to the wedding she helped me coordinate details, and communicate with vendors to be sure we didn't forget anything. She put together our entire wedding day schedule, confirmed vendors a week out, and handled our rehearsal run through as well. She answered all of my emails very quickly, with lots of helpful suggestions and resources, and kept me focused on the important things in the planning process.
But she really shined the day of the wedding. She was the perfect person on our big day to help keep the day running smoothly, coordinate our vendors, chorale guests, keep my husband and I calm, and make sure everything went well. I am floored at what an amazing job she did for us, and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else there on our big day. She knows all of the local vendors, which is very helpful especially if you are planning from afar, and she made so many great suggestions from all of her years of experience in the business. Most importantly my husband and I could completely relax on our big day, soak it all in, and enjoy our awesome party! I can't say enough good things about Kerri and her team, and my advice for anyone planning a wedding on the outer banks is to book KERRI and do it soon! You'll be incredibly happy you did!!!!

We chose Kerri as our wedding planner after polling nearly every vendor at the 2014 OBX Expo and hearing over and over the she was the most organized and enjoyable to with with planner on the banks. Kerri lived up the the hype. She warned us about the rollercoaster nature of the planning process, she provided us guidance while choosing vendors, and she expertly smoothed out any hiccups on our wedding day so that we never even knew they happened.

So particularly helpful guidance:

-Without her experience creating our rental order we would have been absolutely lost and almost definitely would have ended up overpaying for poor quality or without some of the supplies necessary to pull off a seamless and incredibly fun event.

-We found her personalized timeline template to help us to know what needed to be completed when, even if we were perpetually behind.

-She was clutch our wedding day; rearranging our schedule on the fly when we needed to get back on schedule and coordinating all the vendors behind the scenes.

Kerri was the (caring) kick in the pants we needed when we were behind schedule, the reassurance we needed when we were stressed, and the third opinion when we had a wedding decision stalemate. Having her as our planner made the process infinitely less stressful and much more fun.

We could not have been more pleased with our wedding day; I think we danced as much or more than anyone! We highly recommend hiring her to help make your planning process enjoyable and your wedding day fun for the couple and the couple's family.

Keri Catino-Nelson and The Proper Setting are phenomenal. We had never been to the Outer Banks, let alone were familiar with venues and vendors. Keri was a gem with wonderful suggestions. We never saw the venue until we arrived the day before the wedding (although we had seen their website and were impressed). We never met the vendors until the day before and/or the day of the wedding. Yet, the wedding and reception couldn't have been more perfect if we had lived right in Corolla NC. Keri was absolutely delightful and easy to work with. She was so detailed and kept us informed of all decision making and progress. She made sure we were in contact with the vendors she recommended, who were also absolutely wonderful to work with. It was such a pleasure to meet her in person, yet we felt we already knew her through all the contacts. She is EXTREMELY ORGANISED, pays attention to EVERY DETAIL and is so friendly and personable. We were very very blessed to have her be our wedding planner and create the perfect dream wedding at the Outer Banks. We recommend her with the highest regard! She and her business are fantastic.

Kerri was fantastic throughout the whole wedding planning process. My wife and I planned our wedding in OBX for out of state. We just had our wedding and we couldn't be happier with how it went. We both credit Kerri for a lot of it's success.

From the beginning Kerri was organized, supportive, and gave great advice. She provided a thorough month to month timeline that kept us on track, which kept us from missing things or getting overwhelmed during the planning process. She knows all the vendors, and has a good working relationship with all the top vendors in the area. Every vendor we worked with was happy we had such a good planner, and knew the event would run smooth with Kerri's guidance.
This is what my husband had to say about Kerri and The Proper Setting:

During the planning process she worked hard to give us the wedding we wanted, was never judgmental of our choices, kept us on track with regular calls and email updates, and was our advocate for us when dealing with our vendors. We never would have been able to keep everything on track without her on board.

Perhaps the most glowing thing I can say about Kerri is that she kept my wife sane during the planning process. She is worth every penny.

If you plan on having your wedding at the Outer Banks I highly recommend Kerri at The Proper Setting LLC. She was always accessible (even had a conference call with us at 7:00 a.m. and on nights and weekends). She was very knowledgeable about the locations, vendors, and price points. With how competitive it is to find a venue you love at the right price, she would be an asset to removing huge amounts of stress that go into planning a wedding.

I can't possibly convey just how amazing Kerri is within one review, but I will try. From the beginning Kerri was a warm, relaxed and extremely knowledgeable about planning a first-rate wedding in the Outer Banks. She knows all the vendors and can help you choose wisely. I am a corporate event planner with many years of experience and there is no way I could have pulled off my wedding as perfectly as Kerri did. She kept us on track through the year of planning, helped set up all our on-site meetings, put together a thorough event order, wrangled responses from some of our vendors who were a bit slow to respond, and put out fires as they arose. She allowed me to enjoy the planning process and helped to keep the stress level way down! I actually got to enjoy every minute of my wedding and never wondered for a moment what was next, Kerri and her team were on top of it. The greatest gift I gave myself was hiring Kerri to help me. I truly felt like I had a friend with my best interests at heart leading the charge. Absolutely everything was perfect on my wedding day and I owe that to Kerri. A wedding planner for a destination wedding is a must, and Kerri is the best there is, ask anyone down there and they will tell you. Thank you again for making my dream wedding a reality, Kerri!

While living out of the country during the time of our wedding planning and my wife living hours away from the wedding location during the same time, we needed all the help we could get to plan the wedding of our dreams. We asked around and everyone said The Proper Setting was the place to go. From the moment we met Kerri, our concerns and worries about the wedding planning were drastically decreased. She helped us take care of of everything that needed to be taken care of within the time frame we had to work with. If we had any questions, she went above and beyond to answer them and help us whenever possible. As the wedding time neared the possibility for chaos ensued, but Kerri handled everything in such a magnificent way even the final days prior to the wedding went extremely smoothly and carefree. Our wedding day was when we truly realized that The Proper Setting had the exact same idea for our wedding as we did, a beautiful day that my wife and I will never forget. Kerri made sure everything ran smoothly that day and when a plan needed to be changed not only was it handled with ease, but the new plan she came up with (on the spot) was better then the original plan. Whether it was hurricanes postponing air flights, difficulty finding the wedding location, or even sparklers on the roof, Kerri and The Proper Setting made sure nothing could hamper our wedding day dreams. The Proper Setting truly took our dreams and made them a reality and I would strongly recommend them for any other Outer Banks wedding.

Thank you
Kerri
