  • Kim, WHERE DO WE BEGIN?! We cannot thank you enough for all of the magic you worked on our big day. On a day with so much pressure and stress levels running high, you brought an air of calm and ensured everything ran so smoothly and seamlessly. Any time there was a question, concern, issue, or missing item, you were on top of it, allowing us and our families to relax and take in the wonderful day. You brought such a positive energy to our day with your kindness, AND you were able to respectfully and effectively crack the whip when we needed to get people moving to stay on schedule. :) One of the most common things we said and heard throughout the day and night was “Thank god for Kim!” You were absolutely amazing, and we really don’t know what we would have done without you and your thorough attention to detail and your ability to execute. Hiring a day of coordinator, and specifically you, was THE BEST decision we made when planning for this big day. Thank you again so much. Words... Read more

    Holly and Alex, thank you so much for your thoughtful review. It brings such joy to my heart knowing that I could help make sure your wedding day even more special. Both you and your families were an absolutely pleasure to work with and I could just feel how much you two love each other. I'll never forget you or your wedding. I know you two will have a lifetime of happiness, love and adventure (based on your honeymoon pics). Wish you all the best :-)

  • Kim Pestalozzi was my day of coordinator for my NYC wedding in August. The day ran smoothly and Kim was essential in making that happen. She anticipated my every need and was always thinking 10 steps ahead. Kim pretty much spent the day racing around, but when I needed her she was there within moments. She was prompt and professional at all times. Kim came prepared with a bag full of items that you might need but hadn't thought to bring. We were a very large group and Kim made it seem so easy managing us. Several of my bridesmaids later told me that Kim was amazing and so helpful. My mom later told me that she had no idea how we could have done anything that day without Kim. Thank you so much Kim!!!

    Shana, thank you so much for your kind words. I loved coordinating your rehearsal dinner and wedding. The way everyone spoke about your love for each other is a true testament to your relationship. Thank you for letting me part of your special day. Wish you a lifetime of happiness!

  • Kim was absolutely amazing to have on the day of my wedding. She was beyond professional and responsible, managing to ensure the entire day ran smoothly–all while having an amazing attitude that kept everyone in great spirits!

  • Kim was the coordinator for our November wedding and we LOVED working with her. She handled every one of our wedding twists and turns like a champ and was magically always there when we needed her. She worked with all of our vendors seamlessly and made it all look easy. Every single thing was in it’s right place—with little to no instructions from us (the overwhelmed bride and groom). We can’t imagine any other human doing a better job. When we left at the end of the night we were sad to see her go, but happy to have known her for a few hours. Couldn’t recommend more.

    Hey Josh! Thank you so much for your amazing review. Your wedding was truly unforgettable to me- I was blown away by all the personal touches with the temporary tattoos and your friends' hilarious song. It's clear how close and in love you and Katina are and the kind of incredible life you will build together. I wish you all the best, happy new year!

  • Kim is a born planner, and will go above and beyond to ensure your day is perfect! No aspect of your wedding will go overlooked, and she will spend countless hours making sure that you are happy. She created a day-of timeline for my wedding, and everything went super smoothly with her keeping us on schedule. She also introduced me to both a videographer and alterations company that were a perfect fit, literally. Even if attending a wedding as a guest, she can’t help but jump into action to make sure no detail goes unnoticed. Your wedding will be in the best possible hands with Kim as your planner, and your day will be one that you will treasure forever!

    Awe Jenn thank you so much for your kind review! I love your love story and I was so honored you and Marouane let me be part of your special day. I don't think I've cried as much during vows as I did at yours. You could feel the passion and fight you two have for each other and what it took to get down that aisle. I wish you both so much happiness!

  • Kim was the perfect day-of coordinator on our wedding day. I knew I could rely on her and didn't feel stressed throughout the day knowing she's there to help take care of things. There is absolutely no way we could have managed to have a calm and joyful wedding day without having Kim there taking care of us. Do yourself a favor, get a day of coordinator and most importantly hire Kim.

    Hey Kat! Thank you so much for your kind review. Your wedding was so gorgeous surrounded by all the natural beauty. Your first dance with Ed out by the water is still my favorite of all time! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day. All the best!

  • We can’t say enough about how incredible Kim was during our wedding weekend. We had a 3-day celebration, including a 130-person welcome party at the bride’s parents’ house the day before the wedding, 150 guests at the wedding, and a farewell brunch for all the guests (also at the parents’ house) the day after, and having on-site coordinators was essential. From the beginning, we knew that we wanted to handle the planning/general direction of our wedding weekend ourselves, and wanted someone to help execute on the day of so that we could enjoy everything and spend time with our guests. Kim and her team were exactly what we needed at a really fair price that easily fit within our budget. They walked us through every detail in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and Kim executed everything to perfection. The whole team was extremely professional, organized, and on top of every detail. We didn’t have to worry about anything and could just have fun the entire weekend. We c... Read more

  • Kim coordinated my wedding and post wedding brunch. Going with Kim was one of the best decisions I made during the entire planning process. Kim made everything seamless and her calming organized presence let me go through the weekend without worrying about a single thing. Kim is incredible and extremely organized, she understood every detail of the day and kept us all on schedule. We had a 200 person wedding and Kim handled everything with ease and grace even when my husband needed a button reinforced post-ceremony and my matron of honor split open a seam on her dress. Kim was right there and sewed everyone back together. I had no idea the dress had even tore until the next day! Kim has a magical way of anticipating our every need and kept us very well hydrated on a hot NY day. Kim not only coordinated the brunch the following day by managing setup and dealing with vendors but also directed the staff working during the brunch. Kim was an absolute joy to work with, I cannot rec... Read more

    Thank you Alex for the glowing review. I truly loved working with you and your family on wedding day and the post wedding brunch. Everyone was so sweet and full of love, it made for an unforgettable weekend! You had the quintessential NY wedding at St. Patrick's and The Palace... and it was perfect!

  • Words cannot begin to describe the level of commitment, talent and genuine interest Kim showed us throughout this special process. She made the whole experience (surprisingly) memorable and enjoyable, alleviating SO much stress and pressure most brides and grooms experience leading up to and on their big day. Kim was a calming spirit that I so desperately needed during that crazy time. She demonstrated her incredible experience as a producer to direct and manage everyone involved and kept us all on schedule, which, as you will learn, is so unbelievably important. She so effortlessly made my vision a reality - she truly went above and beyond for us. She genuinely cares about her clients’ happiness and will stop at nothing to make sure everything is done right. She is passionate about love and the memories you make on your wedding day, and her services reflect that. She carried herself in a professional and poised manner at all times and in all aspects, and represented me in the best w... Read more

    Melissa and Ben, thank you so much for your incredible review. You were both such a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process. It's wonderful to collaborate with a bride who has such a sense of what she likes and what she wants in her wedding. It was one of the hottest, if not the hottest, days of the year on your wedding day, but everything turned out perfectly. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
