  • We met Karen about a year ago. My daughter Kelsey and I spoke with a few coordinators together and wasn't sold on anyone yet. Then, Kelsey spoke with Karen. She called me very excited and said "I want to go with Karen from "Celebrated Events." They connected immediately! Karen is one of the most hard-working, detail-oriented, kind and self-less souls you could ever meet. She felt our vision and only enhanced it. When I say she went above and beyond that would be understating it. She has a huge heart and truly treats your event as if it were her own daughter getting married! She cares deeply for clients and is always asking what she can do, offers suggestions or solves any issue that may arise. She coordinated all of our vendors to make us a cohesive and bonded unit. She frequently visited the venue, spoke with caterer weekly, coordinated the bridal party every step of the way. Karen was always available by text, email and phone to answer questions or calm me down lol! I jus... Read more

  • We spent over a year planning our wedding, as we got closer we hired Karen to help keep us organized as we got closer to the wedding. Then the Pandemic of COVID19 hit, Karen provided us with constant updates and recommendations as we continued to plan...After a few weeks we realized we wouldn't be able to keep our date and had to postpone. Karen unfortunately wasn't available on our new date - but that didn't stop her from making sure our wedding would be a success. She helped us find an available wedding planner, sent the new planner all of the information she had for our wedding, and negotiated a discounted rate...Then she still provided us with some additional items we were "borrowing" from her for our wedding...If you have the opportunity to use Celebrated Events/Karen as your wedding planner DO IT!

  • Karen was great. Everything was flawless and our guests even commented about that. She was very responsive and super easy to coordinate with. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for a coordinator.

  • We hired Celebrated Events to hang sting lighting at our recent wedding at the Linganore Winery. The lighting added a special touch to an already beautiful venue. Just three days before the wedding we contacted Celebrated Events (Karen Farrow) seeking potential vendors for outdoor space heaters (as it was predicted to be cold the day of our event – we ended up not needing them which was great); in talking with Karen about our upcoming event we also realized that we could really use some help in setting up some décor inside the venue and Karen graciously offered to help without hesitation. With so much to do when you arrive at the venue with prep and pictures, we can’t imagine how we would have been able to get our special décor set up in the reception hall without Karen’s help – she was truly a life-saver! We gave her a list of the items and where they should be set up and she took care of everything. When we entered the hall before the reception started everything was s... Read more

  • Karen was absolutely amazing. We knew she would be the right person for us when she pre-scouted the venue before we even met for the first time! She was extremely easy to work with. The lead up to the wedding was very smooth and the day went off without any problems (that we were made aware of)!!! We would highly recommend her services!

  • Weddings are stressful - there's no avoiding that! But having Karen onboard made SUCH a big difference on my stress levels. Knowing that someone with her level of expertise, contacts, venue knowledge was there made such a big difference. Having someone to reach out to with questions or for advice made the pre-wedding planning easier as well. Toss in her amazing 'side-kick' Jenny and the service and 'extras' provided helped make an amazing day! Celebrated Events is worth every penny and I would highly recommend!! I'd also strongly encourage the lighting rental - turned our dance floor into a fairy land

  • Karen was ESSENTIAL to our wedding at Linganore Winecellars! She was truly amazing and quick to every response and issue that came up through the entire wedding process. The lights that her company provides make the reception hall even more magical! She made the entire wedding planning process a breeze! She had beautiful props and items to use, was well organized during every conversation, and was just a pleasure to work with! Worth every penny! Thank you so much Karen!!!

  • We had this company do fairy lights over our dance floor. It added so much to the space we absolutely loved it. We never saw them because we didnt need to, they decorated the night before then took down the day after.

  • I had a wonderful experience with Karen and her daughter at Celebrated Events! She was with me every step of the way for the month before my wedding and was extremely responsive via phone and e-mail. I was planning on not hiring a day-of-coordinator but it turns out my wedding probably would not have gone off right without her! One of my favorite things was her willingness to share the decor and supplies she had available, and her strong connections with all the vendors in the Frederick area which made coordinating them on the day much easier for us all. Karen was also wiling to meet with me in different locations and different times based on my work schedule which was highly appreciated, and stored my decorations after the wedding so that we could go on our honeymoon without stressing about everything that was packed up at the end of the night. We had a lovely experience!

  • Karen is simply the best. She comes into the process really wanting to know what you want the wedding to look and feel like (and also how much you’d like to spend). She’s very in tune with the wedding vendor community and has plenty of suggestions if you need them. She simply goes above and beyond with her work. Throughout the planning process we continually found ourselves looking at each other and saying in unison, “What would we do without Karen!?” She has all the small and last-minute details thought out so you don’t have to stress. We can’t emphasize enough how much Karen helped us have our dream wedding!

  • Karen was highly recommended by our venue, Linganore Winery, and had worked there many times before. We hired her as our day-of-coordinator because I wanted my parents to not have to be as involved in the minor details and to advise on the specifics of an outdoor wedding at our venue. However, she failed to show up at our final venue walk through which was to be our first meeting with her due to a family emergency several days before. She did not call either my husband or I to inform us but rather called the tasting room at the venue while we were all standing around waiting for her to show up. From then on, I lost all confidence in her abilities but by then we were too close to our wedding date to make any changes. Disappointingly, we were the ones to reach out to her to figure out if we needed to schedule another meeting and what she was doing in the meantime. We understand that personal emergencies happen but I wish she would have handled it more professionally. As me... Read more

  • I utilized Karen's services for day of planning, which is more like month of wedding planning. She was absolutely critical to the success of my day of wedding logistics. Her daughter was so sweet, and she helped with our photo booth. I would highly recommend Celebrated Events for anyone's special day.
