I planned my LA wedding from Northern California so I needed someone I could trust to help me out and answer questions along the way. I hired Karri because of all the coordinators I talked to she was by far the most organized, dedicated, and genuine. I wanted someone that would understand me and speak up, but also ease my nerves.
My wedding was at a private club so Karri never had worked at it before, but when she went through for the site visit she was like a pro. She asked the site manager all the tough questions and pulled me aside to make sure everything I wanted to know was answered. She stood up for my point of view, but she also backed off if I wanted something my way. She was very easy to work with and very professional.
On the day of the wedding she was amazing! She worked with Courtney to make everything run perfectly smoothly. I didn't have to think, I could just have a good time. My mom was worried about having someone that didn't know our family help out, but Karri was so professional that I can't imagine what my day would have been like without her. There was a small seating chart disaster on the day of the wedding, and I didn't know there was any problem until after the wedding because she took care of it and made it perfect.
I would hire her again in a second. Of all my vendors, she was by far the best.
If you don't think you need a day of coordinator think twice. I almost didn't hire anyone, but it was worth every penny. Just think if you had to attend the party of your life and worry about timing everything, eating, and every detail--you wouldn't have fun.
