  • When you’re still texting with your wedding planning almost weekly months after your wedding, you know you made the right choice. I can honestly say that without Bethany at Modern Kicks, there’s no way our wedding would have been even close to amazing as it was. From our first phone call, I knew that hiring Bethany was an absolute must. Having someone who is so connected to all of the vendors in the Hudson Valley was an amazing asset (she’s best friends with our florist and was able to set up our after-party spot literally 24 hours before our wedding because our initial plan fell through...). She responded calmly every time I texted her with an “Am I crazy…?” and made sure everything was taken care of. She kept me on track with her amazing organizational skills (gotta love a girl who loves Excel!) and was the best sounding board we could have asked for. She was a true partner and we never had to worry about a single thing because we knew it was all going to be taken care of... Read more

  • We would not change a thing about our wedding. All of our vendors were amazing, but without Bethany none of it would have happened as beautifully and seamlessly as it did. From our initial planing meeting, where she truly got who are as a couple, to her recommendations for great local vendors to the weeks leading up to the wedding with concerns about the weather, she set the tone for the best party we could have asked for. It ran so efficiently and we did not have to worry about a thing. We're very grateful for her attitude and talent!

  • I couldn’t have been happier! I got married in September in the Hudson Valley and chose Bethany/Modern Kicks for our wedding coordinator. I wasn’t sure if we needed someone but decided that it would be worth it to not have to worry about details and logistics at the wedding. It was probably the best choice I made throughout the entire wedding planning process! Bethany has a few different planning options (full time, partial planning and then month of) depending on what you need. She I went with month of but she helped to advise as I hired each vendor - giving me thoughtful opinions throughout. When she came on I was able to hand off so much of the logistical work and knowing nothing would slip through the cracks was such a relief. Beyond her organizational help, Bethany’s creative talent is incredible. She really works with the your vision for the day and helps bring that to life. I was so impressed by her past work that I knew I also didn’t need to plan EVERYTHING, that sh... Read more

  • “Without Bethany, all this amazingness would not exist.” This was our standard line during the cocktail hour of our wedding. Our guests kept coming up to us in droves remarking how much they loved the details of the day so far and things were just getting started. To this day, we want to rewind and do it all over again. “It” would not have been possible without Bethany and her team. We wanted to create a unique celebration that would be remembered forever by our guests as one of the best weddings they’ve been to. Bethany helped us deliver the dream and vision into reality. From each phone call, site visit, vision board and design update - working with Bethany was stress-free, fun and exciting. Guests even told my wife, Liz, that she was the ‘most chill bride ever’ on our wedding day and, again, Bethany deserves a lot of the credit here. Her mastery of the day-of details were impeccable. The weather threw us a curveball and Bethany figured out how to reorganize the cocktai... Read more

  • I only wish we could choose 10 stars or more for Bethany. I don't think there is any other wedding planner who could perform the miracles that Bethany did. 12 days before our daughters wedding, the venue we booked 9 months ago confirmed that they would not be ready in time for our may 5th event. We panicked, Bethany worked. And worked and worked and worked!! Not only did she work tirelessly and efficiently , she did it all with a smile and the most calming demeanor possible. New venue, new caterer, rentals of everything including tents, bathrooms, dishes, kitchen equipment, buses etc. She also notified all previously booked vendors of changes and made arrangements for them to now work at new venue. Everyday Bethany picked away at a long list of changes and additions. She put us in touch with a fabulous caterer, Brandon from hunt and harvest, who created a perfect menu and the most delicious food. This was all done in 12 days!! She did in a week and a half what most planners do in a yea... Read more

    Thank you for your kind words, Caryl! Jessie & Ryan's wedding day was beautiful and we are so happy with how wonderfully everything came together, even on a short timeline! It was a great day : )

  • There are few words to express how wonderful Bethany and the Modern Kicks crew are. From start to end, Bethany and her crew were thoughtful, caring, and patient. As someone who went into planning clueless, Bethany was able to help me create the exact wedding I wanted and was easy, professional and funny every step of the way. I couldn't be more grateful - definitely recommend!

  • Bethany is terrific. Planning a Hudson wedding from NYC is doable, but being able to leverage Bethany's knowledge of Hudson Valley vendors was a huge help, as we needed to find everything from wine and beer to transportation to dumpsters -- and Bethany knew someone everywhere. Since she works with so many NYC couples, she knows the best NYC vendors too, should you want to . Her organizational skills, sense of humor and permanent calm were very appreciated. We had monthly calls with her, and then weekly, and she was always available via text to offer reassurance to our (oftentimes unfounded) concerns. From handling a late vendor on the morning of the wedding to arranging for more tequila to be delivered during the reception, she had a firm grip on all the proceedings, allowing us to enjoy our day and night without worrying any of the little details. Working with Bethany is like having your most reliable and selfless friend plan your wedding. You enjoy all the time you get to ... Read more

  • Bethany and her assistants were absolutely amazing in every way. We couldn't have had the wedding without her. Not only are they amazing at their jobs, but also brought in a sense of calm and order and helped everyone feel relaxed and happy. The wedding itself was perfect! Thanks so much!

  • Bethany stepped in as a partial planner a few months into our planning process. She was easy going, responsive, friendly, creative, and -- most important-- organized. It was not until after the wedding (which was a double-ceremony, so had lots of moving parts) that we realized what a treasure she was. We hadn't had to worry about anything the whole day-- she made sure everything ran exactly as it should, or if it didn't then we didn't know about it :)

  • Bethany did an amazing job helping us plan our wedding. We had a tight budget for NYC and she still helped us achieve our ideal wedding. She is very responsive and knowledgeable of all of the options throughout the NYC area. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

  • Bethany simply made this a much more enjoyable and easy experience. We knew we needed a planner from the very beginning- both for guidance, but also for help in decision making and ensuring we had all our t's crossed etc. Bethany was amazing from day 1- but I didn't realize how perfect she was until the day of. Both Matt and I were able to simply have fun and enjoy the weekend- without knowing about any issues, any coordinating challenges etc. Either the wedding was truly that smooth (and if that's the case Bethany did an incredible job in that regard)- or Bethany also did a perfect job of making sure we were on schedule and on track but also enjoying our wedding weekend and not worrying about a thing. We are forever grateful for her and would recommend her to anyone and everyone

  • Bethany was an absolute delight to work with and she made our lives SO MUCH easier leading up to the wedding. We got the mont of coordination package, and it was just right for what we needed. Vendor recommendations, last minute details with all the vendors, tons of advice along the way, and a friendly non-partial person to help make decisions. In addition, I can't say enough about how amazing her help and expertise was on the day of our wedding. She rocked - and was there for me and my husband for every need. She helped sew my dress up when the bustle broke, super glued the hole in my MOH's dress, kept us all on schedule, made sure my veil was on securely, took care of family drama - the WORKS!!! Thank you Bethany!!!

  • If I could give 6 stars, I would. Throughout our entire 10 month engagement, Modern Kicks made us feel like her top priority. Working with Bethany was a thoroughly enjoyable exercise in creativity. She was able to take the ideas in our heads and turn them in to a reality better than we could have imagined. Her problem solving skills are also second to none! We were able to truly enjoy the day, as we trusted Bethany with everything! From wrangling vendors to dealing with troublesome family members to making sure we (the couple) were always in the right place at the right time, she made sure that the day went off without a hitch! Our wedding day was amazing and the most perfect expression of us as a couple. I wish we could go back and start over again. Thanks Modern Kicks!

  • The best. So professional and just ahead of the game. Once the month of the wedding came I was really able to relax knowing I was in such good hands with Bethany. It was no surprise to me that the wedding would go flawlessly thanks to Bethany and her team.

  • We hired Bethany and Modern Kicks for their Month of Coordination services, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything went! Bethany did an amazing job of keeping us organized, coordinating with vendors, creating and executing the timeline for the wedding, reminders for things we needed to get done on time, executing flawlessly on the day-of, and all the odds and ends that go into making a wedding wonderful and stress-free. I am a designer and had a very specific vision for how I wanted things to look, feel, and taste, and Bethany was able to pick-up on that from the get go. We initially interviewed a number of coordinators but Bethany stood out because she was super friendly, understood what we were looking to do right away, was professional, and was also competiively priced. Along the way she had great suggestions when it came to selecting vendors, details in regards to decor, as well as logistics, which truly helped bring my vision to life. Our wedding was in a small spa... Read more
