I cannot say enough about Karri. She is the best! Karri came in to the planning process about 3 months before my wedding. Originally I had not expected to hire a coordinator since I was trying to do everything way a head of time and have the wedding paid off by the time the wedding rolled around. Well I realized that I needed some help because I was so burnt out on wedding stuff. After my first meeting with Karri I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. She was so easy to get along with and is so darn sweet. She made it clear that her job was to take the stress off of me. She said she would deal with all my vendors. And if any problems were to arise on the day of the wedding, she would take care of it. Because that is the last thing a bride needs on her wedding day is for a vendor to approach her with a problem. She really impressed me. And like I said she so easy to get along with. She doesnt take over your vision of your special day. She makes it happen. Never did she boss anyone around. She always showed the most utmost respect for who ever she was dealing with. All my other vendors raved about her! She was so on top of things. A lot of the comments I got from my bridal party and family was that Karri was very calming. She always had everything under control. If anyone were looking for full on coordinator or just day of coordinator, I would highly recommend Karri Lucas! I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Marcel was very easy to get along with. He was very good at following up any questions I had. Prior to the wedding I had emailed a list of song requests that my guest had. I made sure he had all the songs requested and he assured me that it was not a problem. There were about 70 songs on the list. And he only played a handful of them. Which upset me because I had specifically asked my guest on the RSVP for their favorite song. Another time he asked our guest to join us for a dance because the song was a special song for the bride and groom. The song was Ribbons In The Sky by Stevie Wonder. It would be nice if I had even heard the song before. Until that night, that was the first and only time I have ever heard that song. Both DH and myself had this really confused look on our faces. DH and I also had a Chinese tea ceremony at the reception. So we had him read a little history on the tea ceremony for the people that did not know what we were doing. Well he read everything with no problem. Mind you we did not request any music to be played during the ceremony. As to our surprise when the ceremony started he started to play this Asian instrumental music. DH and I were like WTF is he playing! After the tea ceremony ended I over heard him one of my guest that he was looking all over for music and found it on the soundtrack for Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. If I had to do my wedding over again, I would defiantly not have gone with Marcel.
