Folks, if you're looking for a wedding planner, PLEASE look no further than The Proper Setting, LLC (Kerri Catino-Nason). My husband (whoo hoo!!) and I can honestly say our wedding day would not have been as amazing as it was without Kerri! Kerri's vendor recommendations fell in line with our vision of our wedding. Am I gushing? You bet! Just being able to relax knowing everything was being taken care of was PRICELESS!!! Our wedding guests, families and friends--every one of them--talked about how great, professional and kind Kerri was. Not only can we recommend Kerri, we now call her friend! Congratulations to all who hire Kerri (The Proper Setting, LLC)!!!!

We booked Kerri before we even booked our venue! From the start, we knew that she was the perfect asset to our long distance wedding planning! She was beyond supportive of all our needs and wants and made it all happen while working with us across the miles & time difference! Her rapport with the local vendor community was awesome and she really helped us stay on track throughout the process. Unfazed in any challenge, Kerri pulled through for us and was always the calm, rationale voice we needed!

On the day of she was beyond amazing - with everything under control and all ran smoothly! She helped make our day one to remember and the wedding wouldn't have been the same without her!! Sharing our deepest thanks & appreciation to Kerri & the Proper Setting team!!

Kerri was amazing to work with in planning my daughter's wedding! I went from thinking I could plan a wedding myself, to thanking her every day for being there and guiding me through a very complicated process! She is so organized and responsive to our requests. We laughed together and cried together! Kerri was the one professional I could not have done without! And the wedding day was perfection thanks to her!

Our choice of The Proper Setting for wedding planning could not have been better. Without doubt, our investment in Kerri’s experience was the wisest choice of all of our wedding expenditures. She directed us to solid vendors and helped us overcome major challenges at our very large event home venue. Her knowledge saved us expenses several times her fee – on a very short timeline.

As with any destination wedding you're going to want someone familiar with the area. The Proper Setting hits it out of the park in this respect. You will find Kerri’s connections to be invaluable – she knows everyone and everything you’ll need to create your special day on the Outer Banks.

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.
