  • My husband and I hired Kelly right when we got engaged and had her with us the whole way. This was especially great because we moved far away during our wedding planning. Knowing she could continue things and take the reins when my brain was consumed with packing tape and boxes was a huge relief. Even if you don’t have her for the full package, even just a few weeks out or day of will truly give you peace of mind and let you enjoy your family. Here are things Kelly is amazing at: finding a venue that meets your style and guest count; making you feel like you are the ONLY client; helping you come up with a decor plan that meets your budget and level of effort (For instance, I was not super into decor so I was really happy to have someone suggest items here and there I wouldn’t have thought about. If you love decorating, she does too, and I foresee you both having a decorating jam session); coming up with a layout for the tables; making the schedule for the day (Who the heck know... Read more

  • Kelly is amazing!! I had worked with Kelly in a friends wedding and already knew I wanted to hire her as soon as I got engaged. She was the first person I contacted to get the whole planning process going, which lasted almost 3 years and she was with us every step of the way! She took all of our ideas and made them work, she kept us on schedule through the planning and the Big Day, she became more than just a vendor/planner! My friends/family are still talking about how relaxed I was and I fully credit Kelly and the faith I had in her and she did not disappoint!! You need this woman behind the scenes! I HIGHLY recommend.

    Reading this gave me chills! Thank you Amy for leaving a review that speaks volume as to why a couple should have a planner - you were so calm and I love it!!! It was such a pleasure working with you and Heath. You were both so on-point with getting your tasks completed and always was so quick to respond to anything. I greatly appreciate that. Best wishes to a beautiful life together!!!

  • The moment we sat down with Kelly when we started planning our wedding, we knew that she was a perfect fit to fulfill the vision that we had in mind. Throughout our 11 month engagement, Kelly responded to emails immediately, assisted in any speed bumps that we faced in planning, and had amazing ideas to make our wedding everything we wanted it to be. She even thought about the little things that had slipped our minds or didn't even think about. When it came to the rehearsal, she was able to corral our large bridal party and we were able to run through it in a perfect amount of time that we were all able to remember the next day. On our actual wedding day, Kelly was there working hard with her team to get everything set-up for our morning ceremony. She made the day go smoothly, and even her assistant Anna was a huge help! Kelly made our day memorable, perfect, and stunning. We are thoroughly impressed with Kelly, her team, and their services.

    Thank you so much Miranda for such an amazing review - I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate it! You and Matt were so great to work with and always responded and sent information requested so quickly. You made my job so much better because of your organizational skills and I am so thankful for that! Best wishes to the two of you and a wonderful marriage!

  • Outside of our marriage itself Kelley, was the most amazing part of our day. Her ability to take two people with the most general of ideas of how we wanted our big day to look and turn it into a beautiful day of vision and detail was incredible. The effort and work she puts in leading up to and on the day of is unbelievable; not to mention we were not her only clients of the month. There are so many things you end up spending money on for a wedding I’m going to attest from the deepest portion of my heart nothing could possibly been worth more than Kelly Kennedy being the creator of our day. She was not only our wedding planner but she has become our friend during the process we both love recommend her to anyone and everyone I need.

    Hey girl!!!! Thank you so much for your review! You and Jeremiah were so awesome to work with and THANK YOU for trusting me and allowing me to be a part of such a great wedding. I hope that you two have the most amazing life together! Bet wishes!

  • If I could give engaged couples one piece of advice it would be to hire a day of coordinator- and specifically to hire Kelly Kennedy! Kelly went above and beyond to ensure that all our vendors were on the same page and to make sure our day went smoothly! We hired Kelly 5 weeks out and from the beginning Kelly jumped right in and got a handle on our entire planning process. She didnt miss a beat. The timeline she created for us was so detailed and was so incredibly helpful and reassuring that she had control of our day. Kelly worked diligently with our vendors and held everyone to the timeline. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect because of Kelly and Anna, I can't thank them enough!

    Thank you so much, Amanda, for your sweet remarks. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and Dan. Your wedding was beautiful and I am thrilled to have been a part of it. Best wishes for an amazing life together!

  • Kelly Kennedy and Events made our special day and the creative process leading up to our wedding day stress free and easy. Kelly always responded quickly and made her self available for my worries and ramblings. There are endless wonderful things that I can say about Kelly and her team; However, I think this description speaks the truth. When I woke up the day of our wedding, I wasn't nervous or worried about anything. When we arrived at the venue and I waked around to look at all the detail and specificities I had requested, they were all there and everything was perfect. As I walked down the aisle, I felt like all I had to do was look at my soon-to-be husband and follow her cues, of course while I was balling my eyes out. I remember every single tiny detail and when I woke up the next morning, I was able to close my eyes and replay it, step by step. Our wedding was PERFECT and exactly what I have dreamt for my entire life. Kelly Kennedy and Events is a one of a ki... Read more

  • Kelly was SO perfect for our wedding! She knew exactly when to share her thoughts, expertise, and opinions- and when to listen and hear our desires. She is incredibly organized, efficient, reliable, friendly, and kind. It is hard to get those qualities in one person. We knew exactly what to expect and everything went SO smoothly- which allowed our wedding to be stress-free. My husband and I could not have hoped for a better wedding coordinator!! I would hire her again and recommend her to everyone!

    Thank you so much, Tessa, for such a beautiful review. I truly, truly appreciate you taking the time to write this. You and Marcel have such a wonderful family and I am so pleased that you all were so happy with the wedding day. Best wishes for an amazing life together!

  • Kelly was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. She kept us on track for all of the decisions and deadlines we needed to make. She was a sounding board for all of our ideas to make our dream wedding come to reality within budget. She made sure everything on our wedding day was handled and we didn't need to worry about a thing. We did not live in the area where we were married and having her help us figure out vendors that matched our tastes was instrumental in making the planning process more enjoyable. I have recommended Kelly to everyone I know that is getting married and they have all hired her as well. We can't say enough good things about her.

  • I can’t say enough about our wedding coordinator, Kelly Kennedy! She quietly worked behind the scenes to ensure everything ran smoothly. The attention to detail was beyond impressive and we were able to enjoy every moment of the wedding. From dealing with all the vendors to making sure everyone got a sparkler for the send off. I honestly can’t imagine the true amount of workload (and stress!) her service took off our shoulders. The week before, I felt like there was something I should be doing, but we were able to just relax and enjoy family as they arrived into town. Kelly lives locally and does events in the Sarasota/Tampa area. Give her a call for your event!!!

    This is so sweet, Emily! I like the "quietly worked behind the scenes" part as that basically sums up this job! You were such a pleasure to work with and I hope you and Matt have an amazing life together! I loved seeing your pics from Germany - looked like an amazing honeymoon! Best wishes!

  • As the Mother of the Bride I can’t express how wonderful the wedding went!! Kelly made my daughters vision come true in every way! She gave us nothing but reassurance, and she delivered! Kelly was so organized and professional in every way! Always communicating with us and responsive to our questions and concerns. All we had to do was show up and enjoy the weeding! Kelly handled the rest! If you hire Kelly it would be the best wedding decision you ever made l!! Thank You! Kelly!

  • Kelly was a dream come true for me. Anything and everything I needed she was right there. I could always call and text her whenever I needed. She is such a kind and amazing person. The day of the wedding I showed up things were already being set up, she reached out to all the vendors got everything done for me and allowed me to be stress free. I allowed her full range to set up things however she feels looks best because she is someone you can put all your trust into. She makes the day just flow perfectly. My husband and I couldn’t be more thankful for her. Anyone who doesn’t have a wedding planner or is back and forth about getting one.. it’s 10000% worth it and kelly is the perfect person to turn to. We loved her 💓💓💓

  • Stop your quest for the perfect wedding planner now and book with Kelly Kennedy!!!! My husband and I cannot thank Kelly enough for her part in our wedding day. We got married on November 9th at the Palmetto Riverside B+B and we had partial planning and design with Kelly. There was nothing partial about it, Kelly went above and beyond during the entire process! She was in contact with us before our contracted time even began, and she responded to every email/text/call so quickly! She was incredibly helpful when it came to making any wedding decisions. But the part where she really shined was the actual wedding day. Kelly and her assistant kept the whole day running so smooth. There may have been a mishap here or there, such as our entire cake falling on the ground, but Kelly worked so hard to make sure everything went well. We had an amazing wedding day and I’m so thankful we chose Kelly to be our wedding planner!!! Thank you so much Kelly!!!

    Thank you so much Dylan for writing such a sweet review. I can't begin to tell you how much I truly appreciate you taking the time to write this. You and Javi were amazing to work with - so organized and such a great vision for the day. And yes, in my 13+ years of experience in this industry, your cake was my 1st one that hit the floor (still crying inside over it). But, you are one heck of a trooper and still doing pictures with the cake and keeping a smile on your face. I wish you two the absolute best in your future together.
