**Would definitely NOT recommend this company**
Kelli did make our wedding beautiful BUT she messed up on so many things. I think she may be in over her head, taking on too many events at once and not being able to give each event the attention deserved for the amount of money she charges. I ended up having to do a lot of the work myself before the wedding because she was apparently too busy. She decided to do another event the night before our wedding and did not come to our rehearsal, and she did not fill in the woman that took her place that night, so it was a disaster (and pointless). Furthermore, she did not follow my instructions and made MANY mistakes, going WAY out of the budget (over 10K), delivering gift boxes to the wrong hotels, not telling the string trio to play the correct music, telling me to buy toasting glasses but not arranging for champagne at the wedding, and not initiating a bouquet toss. These are just a few of the many mistakes (my list is too long for this review). She really does not care about price so I would only pick her if I had an endless amount of money to spend and had no personal preference (since Kelli really only wants to do things her way.) Beware: She will charge you a ton of money for linen rentals, lighting, etc. from her own company ($55 per tablecloth?!). **She also favors vendors over the bride and groom's preferences.** She is also REALLY BAD at returning phonecalls and emails and she DOESN'T DO WHAT SHE SAYS SHE'LL DO. On top of all of this, when I called her out on (some) things, she never apologized or tried to fix it, but instead said she didn't know, even though I remember specifically telling her MULTIPLE TIMES. I really regret choosing her and I hope that she is better to other brides, because I unfortunately did not have a good experience with her.

Edit: After writing this review, I asked Kelli to send me the contracts and noticed even more mistakes. She made a mistake with the florist in which we were OVERCHARGED by OVER $500!! because she gave them the wrong table count. Kelli refuses to reimburse me for this, so I made a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. They also threw out our cakes toppers.

I can understand 1 or 2 or maybe even 5 mistakes, but more than 10??!! What a terrible planner!! AND she still never even sincerely apologized or tried to make up for it. DISGUSTING
