  • Let us just start off with... we honestly do not think we could of had the wedding we wanted without Kate. She was so much more than just a day-of coordinator. She was with us through every important decision throughout the entire planning phase from coordination with our caterer, to design element decisions, to reaching out to our venue to see what certain protocols were, helping us choose a rehearsal dinner venue. You name it!! We knew we did not want a traditional wedding and Kate was a huge supporter-- but she also knew from her experience what was going to work and what ideas needed to be reconfigured slightly in order to work. She was personally my peace every time I needed her to be and I cannot thank her and her absolutely kick-ass day-enough. We promise you Kate and her amazing staff will be the best and easiest decision you will have to make.

  • Kate, you are a beautiful, gorgeous, shining star of a soul. Where the hell do I even start?! If you are looking to have one hell of a time, the most gorgeous day of your life, a time that not a single person will forget, a setting to make even nature weep…look no further. Kate and her team were absolutely unbelievable. From the day I emailed inquiring to the “big day” and even now, Kate and her entire team have been nothing but spectacularly amazing. Kate was my go-to throughout my entire planning process…we’re talking like almost two entire years worth of planning. School and jobs and life always seem to get in the way of things, so we had some time to figure out the nitty gritty…and she was there through all of it. The stress, the questions, the details, the more stress, obtaining information, solidifying details, helping ease the nerves…you name it. She was attentive to details, responsive to every single annoying (and sometimes what I felt was insane) question, compa... Read more

  • A Charmed affair gets it done! From the planning stages all the way to pay out at the end of the big night Kate was by our side. We had such a great experience working with this crew. D would highly recommend them for your next event!

  • When I first began planning my wedding I truly thought I could handle it myself..... NOPE! WRONG! I cannot recommend Kate & A Charmed Affair ENOUGH!!! She was literally an angel sent from above and truly a fairy godmother during our entire wedding experience!! She was BEYOND helpful and so kind. Not only did she make sure our day went SO SMOOTH... she also was so great at recommending vendors that were AMAZING and not insanely overpriced which was what we ran into sooo many times.... Hiring Kate and her team will be the BEST money you spend on your entire wedding. I'm telling you.... HIRE HER. You will not regret it.

  • My husband and I worked with Kate to plan our summer wedding in the Hudson Valley and working with Kate was the best decision we made throughout the whole process. Kate handled and thought of everything, and worked so seamlessly with our vendors. It lifted so much stress off of my shoulders, and we were able to completely enjoy our day and not even think about a thing (besides how much fun we were having!). Thank you, Kate, for everything!!! You are the best!

  • Kate Arel and her team were amazing to work with from start to finish. We selected a super DIY wedding venue that necessitated we provide EVERYTHING, and she was not at all intimidated by the undertaking at hand and inspired confidence that we could make it happen. Kate was responsive and helpful from day one, she remained calm and collected even when we had issues with our venue and surprises with our guest count, and helped keep us positive in the more challenging moments. She is easy to work with, organized and professional and quite literally pulled off our wedding without a hitch. She gave us the best vendor recommendations, all of which we were impressed and happy with. Kate seemed to understand exactly what we were envisioning. We'll never forget walking up to the ceremony site after our first look, and being astounded at how beautiful it was. It was exactly what we had hoped for, but even better! Honestly, we would have never pulled off the wedding we dreamed of without Kate, a... Read more

  • I did not have to worry about a thing with Kate- she listened to exactly what I wanted and made my vision come alive! Her ideas and personal touches made our wedding so uniquely perfect! She consistently reminded my husband and I that it was OUR day, and kept any & all possibly disgruntled family members at bay. Kate and her team made the entire experience of planning and executing a wedding stress-free from beginning to end. If you're looking for the VERY BEST planner and team, hire A Charmed Affair!

I am not a planner or an organizer and Kate was a fairy godmother sent to me - THANK GOD for Kate, I had no idea how much I was missing or forgot but Kate came to the rescue and made my vision come to life! Could not recommend enough Kate and her amazing team! THANK YOU

  • Kate from Charmed Affair was an absolute pleasure to work with and a total pro. She understood exactly the type of wedding we wanted, and also understood that we had extremely busy work and travel scheduled. She helped us manage, coordinate and keep all of the various partners (e.g., venue, caterer, DJ, lighting, liquor, florist, etc.) on schedule and paid on time. I would highly recommend Kate to any busy couple that wants and amazing wedding but are super busy and need a trusted advisor to navigate all of the moving pieces and have an amazing reception.

  • Kate and her team are phenomenal and we cannot recommend them enough. Kate served as our day-of coordinator, which in reality meant that she provided support in the months leading up to our wedding, giving vendor recommendations and communicating with everyone we hired. We got married in a remote location and brought in everything but Kate was unfazed. In addition to her support in the lead up and her flawless coordination of the day, her team also did all of the flowers and set up for our tables at the reception and at the cocktail hour along with all of the lighting in our tent. If you are getting married in the Hudson Valley/Catskills do yourself a favor and hire Kate!

  • We hired Kate for her day-of coordination and this was the best decision we made for our wedding day. Not only is her price competitive (actually way better than some others we looked into) but she also provides feedback and answers all your questions the months and year leading up to your wedding. That way, when the day comes, it’s the best it could be, since she provided input throughout the process. We hosted our wedding at my parents’ house, and it was very busy leading up to the wedding. As soon as Kate and her team arrived, my Mom was able to hand off the reins and enjoy the day with friends and family - exactly what we wanted! Kate handled weather concerns, liquor shortages, and I’m sure many other hiccups - and as the bride and groom we were completely unaware. Along with her wonderful advice, coordination, and team, you also get access to many of her props and wedding decor items - in the long run saving you time and money. Do yourself a favor and hire Kate and her fan... Read more

  • Kate and her team were absolutely fantastic! Throughout the entire process, Kate made me feel at ease and provided recommendations and ideas that contributed to the most beautiful wedding day. I honestly couldn't have done this without her. She was calm, responsive and completely professional. She is simply the best and I can't help but sing her praises. Thank you, Kate & A Charmed Affair, for making our wedding so special!

  • Kate and her whole team were wonderful to work with! She was friendly, enthusiastic, quick to respond to questions and always available to help come up with alternatives/ budget-friendly options. She took so much off of our plate and helped to make our wedding day relaxed, fun and everything that we had hoped for. Can't recommend her and the A Charmed Affair team enough!
