  • "Kim is the best," is a phrase my husband and I must have said to each other minimum 100x in our short 4-week wedding planning process.  In a pre-Covid world, we were going to spend 10 months planning a 140 person wedding in California. In the stark reality of 2020, we ended up spending 4 weeks planning a 25 person wedding in our New York backyard. We were worried that with the short timeline, the much smaller budget, Covid restrictions, and the stunted guest list, the wedding wouldn't feel real. We'd have our real wedding in California.  Enter Kim, a superhuman magician (or behind the scenes: an incredibly hardworking creative and organizational genius) who pulled together the most perfect day. - She understood our vision immediately. I'd show her a picture of something I liked -- just as general inspiration -- and within hours she'd send me back something I could actually rent/buy that matched the picture almost exactly.  - She respected our budget. She was so adept ... Read more

    Ali! I'm like crying reading your review. It's truly remarkable thinking about meeting you and Justin for the first time at the house and seeing how much we got done in such a short amount of time. You two were an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire process, making it fun every step of the way. You both had such positive energy and were so open to going with the flow despite having to change your original wedding plans. Getting to know you both, your pup and your families throughout the 4 weeks was such a highlight of the year and I will remember all of it forever. Thank you for letting me be part of your special day! So much love, Kim P.S. we'll be over soon for puppy playdates and s'mores ;-)

  • Kim at Chere Rosalie was amazing in helping us plan a wedding in less than 30 days (after COVID put a stop to our original plans). She was extremely responsive and organized every step of the way. I felt 100% comfortable that Kim had everything under control, which allowed me to be stress free in the planning process (which says a lot when planning a wedding in less than a month!). Would highly recommend Chere Rosalie to future bride and grooms!

  • I found Kim online after I searched for a wedding planner for a wedding I had 3 months to plan. I told her everything I wanted and she executed all of my ideas perfectly. She is resourceful and very attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner. Planning a wedding in three months wasn’t apart of my original plan but with all of her help, I have no regrets, it was exactly what we wanted.

    Hey Krystina, Thank you so so much for your incredibly kind review. We had such a blast helping you and Teddy put together your wedding after your original plans had to be canceled because of COVID. You were the absolute sweetest the entire process even with all the hurdles we dealt with. But at the end of the night, your wedding was perfection. I cannot wait to watch your family grow :-) So much love, Kim

  • Kim was an amazing planner and was so wonderful to work with! We pivoted, like many couples, from a wedding in BK to a smaller wedding at our home in CT. Every time we spoke, she was so optimistic and helped us create a fairy tale wedding. We loved every moment of our wedding and the experience working with Kim was absolutely perfect. Chere Rosalie is a dream team and they are absolute professionals! Book them!

  • Since day one, we were drawn to Kim's personality and style. She took the time to get to know us, knew all of the right questions to ask and areas to proactively plan for. She was amazing at advising us on our vendor and style decisions, while also strived to keep us budget conscious throughout the whole experience. She curated a unique event that represented our vision and executed it flawlessly. Kim was extremely detailed and she continuously put all concerns to rest through her strong organization skills and attention to detail. She took the reigns the whole day of, which allowed us and our family/friends to enjoy the day. Our family continuously commented about how nonstop she was day of and yet was so genuinely helpful and kind to them, helping them with their needs throughout the way, while ensuring the event from start to finish went off without a hitch!

    Awee Tiina! Thank you so so much for such a thoughtful review. I still can't believe we don't talk every day anymore. It was such a pleasure getting to know you, Greg and your pups thoughout the entire process :-) You two cared so deeply about all the details and it made my job even more fun. And it truly brought tears to my eyes watching it all come together on your wedding day. The sun came out just in time, the setting was breathtaking, the food was delicious, the flowers were perfect, I could go on. But most importantly, you and Greg were able to celebrate your love in such a special way in front of those you cherish most. Thank you for letting me be part of it all :-)

  • Kim made our wedding day truly special. We had gone back and forth with Covid unsure if we could even pull the day off. Once we realized that our entire party would be vaccinated in time, Kim planned our wedding in 5 days. No joke. We told her on a Thursday and by the following Thursday we had a venue, flowers, photographer, hair and make up all booked. On the day, the venue was gorgeous and Kim planned everything seamlessly. It was an actual - no stress wedding. We didn't have to lift a finger. I highly recommend Kim and her company Chère Rosalie. If you get to have her as a wedding planner - you are truly blessed.

  • 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 essential to making our wedding day flawless. She helped us navigate wedding planning in 2020 and went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We are so thankful for everything her and her team did and can’t recommend her enough. Can’t imagine the day without her, thanks again for everything!!

    Stacy and Buddy! You two were so much fun to work with throughout the whole process and incredibly poised despite all the changes. It was clear that nothing was going to stop you from saying I do and celebrating your love surrounded by your closest family and friends. And everything turned out perfectly. Thank you for letting us be part of your day! xo Kim

  • We couldn't have gotten luckier! Kim was heaven-sent to us; we had to postpone our wedding a week before it was scheduled to happen due to Covid. The process of re-planning was disheartening but finding Kim changed everything for us. She was responsive, organized, energetic, and a delight. Her enthusiasm helped me feel excited again and stress-free. The day of the wedding, Kim kept things running smoothly. Our ceremony was scheduled to happen outdoors but it had been raining all morning. Kim quickly came up with a back up plan that made us feel at ease; she was reassuring and I knew that with her running the ship, everything was going to be perfect. And it was! Kim loves what she is doing and that is the best energy to have on your special day. Don't think about it twice - every bride and groom needs Kim on their team!

    Awe Meylin!! I was so excited when you first reached out to me because you had gone through so much just to get married but you were determined to make it perfect. I truly enjoyed getting to know you during the process and of course, seeing you in your dress brought tears to my eyes because you were just as beautiful on the outside as on the inside. Thank you for your incredibly kind words and for letting me be a small part in your special day. Cannot wait to see you and Wes take on the world as husband and wife. Much love, Kim

  • 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

We wish you both all the best as you continue your lives together!
