  • Kelley and her team were amazing to work with from start to finish. The level of time and attention she put into making sure our day was exactly what we wanted was extraordinary--she went above and beyond in every way. We hired Kelley for the "wedding coordination" package for an April wedding; Kelley and her associate Jess began working with us in January and met with us in February to go through our wedding weekend itinerary, which was extremely thorough and took all the guess work out of the day (i.e. what time did hair and makeup need to start, when did family need to show up for photos, how much time did we need for speeches, etc). When our wedding was disrupted because of the pandemic, Kelley helped us coordinate with our venue and other vendors to put things on hold, and she stayed in touch with us after our original wedding date came and went. We made the decision to go ahead with our wedding plans in a scaled down, socially-distant way, and wanted to move quickly. Kelley h... Read more

  • Kelley was the most amazing wedding planner. We met her and instantly clicked with her bubbly personality and attention to detail! We walked her through our vision of a wedding - long kings tables, dark moody colors, and a candlelight procession (in February). She nailed it - it couldn't have been better. She made sure our guests were well fed, danced their socks off, and had so much fun. I can't recommend her highly enough and I welcome the chance to provide any details on ALL the things she did for us! Truly the best!

  • We are so glad that we found Kelley! We knew right away that we wanted to work with her. We had trouble deciding on a package that was right for us, so she helped us come up with a custom package. She was super helpful in narrowing down all our design ideas. She is extremely patient and understands how to communicate with people. She has the right amount of creativity without being cheesy or showy, and she understands the industry well. When we started having issues communicating with our venue’s coordinator, Kelley really stepped up to bridge the gap. Everything on the wedding day ran smoothly and we didn’t have to deal with anything. Go with Kelley Cannon, she is the best!!

  • Kelley Cannon pulled together a fabulous event for our Cathedral wedding and backyard reception in under 5 months. She orchestrated a highly personalized event despite the compressed timeline, a tight budget for the scale, and the added complexity of a home event -- a testament to her organization, diligence, and creativity. Many planners can provide timelines and negotiate vendors, but Kelley’s personality and personalization set her apart. She was a pleasure to work with, friendly and refreshingly candid. Her perceptiveness and sensitive navigation of family dynamics, budget discussions, and stylistic differences were critical to the process and would be difficult to match. She went to great lengths to make sure the event reflected our personalities and style—even if it involved unusual requests or seeking additional vendors. As much as we had our own vision for the event, we relied on her expertise to make it a reality. Perhaps the truest test of a planner is how they respond wh... Read more

  • Kelley Cannon is amazing. She is hands-down the best money we spent on our wedding. She haggled on our behalf to get vendors to lower their prices, took care of all the details when we needed to reschedule our date, and helped us along every single step of the planning & execution. Every time someone would ask me about a detail of the wedding, I’d begin with, “Our planner, Kelley, she’s amazing...” Despite juggling multiple weddings she always made us feel like we were her only clients. I cannot recommend her more; do yourself a favor and hire Kelley.

  • We can't say enough great things about Kelley and her team. Kelley went way above and beyond the coordination services that we had originally contracted for. We don’t live in the DC area, so Kelley was able to step in and coordinate a lot of last minutes items for us. She was awesome the day of the wedding handling every last detail of the event. We couldn't ask for a better vendor to work with. We highly recommend Kelley Cannon Events!!

  • Kelley Cannon is amazing! We got the partial planning package, and she went above and beyond anything we could’ve expected from her. She took what started out as a few pictures, and conversations and turned it into one of the most unique and beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen. She always strives to find the best vendors within your budget and is great at thinking outside of the box to help conceptualize your vision. She was extremely organized, and responsive, but most importantly a blast to work with. We are utterly grateful for everything she did to help make our wedding the most amazing day ever.

    Amanda, thank you so much for these sweet words! It was such a pleasure to get to work with you and Zach to create your beautiful day! I loved every minute of the planning with you guys!

  • If you're a busy bride who A) mostly has your stuff together but B) know you'll need a hand with all the details leading up to the big day, KCE's wedding coordination services are perfect for you. Lois Gaul was our coordinator--she was an absolute delight to work with and essential in making our day seamless. Lois was thoughtful, communicative, and organized. She was also super responsive to our desires as we created a timeline and worked through the details in the month or so leading up to our wedding. She went with our ideas when they made sense but gently pushed back when necessary, and was always respectful and professional. On the day of, Lois bounced back and forth between the hotel where we were getting ready and our venue to make sure everything was on track while Kelley was at the venue while vendors got set up. Together, they ensured that everyone--from vendors, to family, to wedding party, to guests--knew where to be and when. They helped to transition our space from... Read more

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Becca! We loved working with you! You totally had it all together and we are so glad we were able to support you towards the end of the planning and help pull it all together on the day-of. Wishing you and Jonathan many years of happiness, Lois & Team KCE

  • I absolutely love Kristin Corrigan from Kelley Cannon Events!!! We hired her as our day-of coordinator as well as some additional design and pre-planning help. Kristin was so sweet, so easy to work with, super responsive, and creative. We first met with her about 6 months out. I had a lot scattered ideas that I had pulled together from pinterest, bridal magazines, etc. and she was able to help me turn it into one cohesive vision with some unique touches. She also created a customized to-do list for the coming months until she took over for that final month. The to-do lists you find online are nice, but they aren't customized to your wedding needs so this was so helpful and helped keep me on track. We met back up with her again about a month prior to the wedding. She was great taking over with the vendors, helping us on our walk-through, etc. On that weekend of she was so amazingly helpful. She was so organized and on top of everything. I didn't have to worry about a thing the entire ... Read more

  • When we realized that our wedding fell at the same time and location as the DC Pride Parade, we knew that an experienced set of eyes and hands would be incredibly helpful in the weeks leading up to our big day (and especially on the day of). The last thing we wanted was to be stressed about vendor logistics on our wedding day. We opted to hire Kelly Cannon Events for partial planning services, and it was worth every penny. Kirsten Corrigan was a delight to work with; she had such a nice way about handling vendors, family, and a persnickety priest. There is nothing I find more reassuring -- in life generally, but especially in the throws of wedding mayhem -- than someone who exudes competence and calm. Kristen not only had those qualities, but she was organized, detail-oriented, and fun. My husband said "she was unflappable, and made sure our families and friends where in the right place at the right time." Importantly, we felt that she was our advocate and had our best in...

  • I can't say enough great things about Kristen and the Kelley Cannon team! Hands down the best money my husband and I spent on the wedding. Kristen came in and helped with the final preparations of the wedding. She calmed my nerves every step of the way. And she handled issues that happen day-of which I had no idea. Kristen and team made my day and I couldn't ask for a better vendor to work with. Highly recommend Kelley Cannon Events!

  • Kristin Corrigan from Kelley Cannon Events was essential in making our wedding day flawless! She was amazing to work with and was on top of every little detail for the big day. She handles communication with all your vendors the week prior to the wedding so you can relax, and relaxation is key before your wedding. Kristin is professional and respectful to you, your bridal party, family, and vendors. I can't say enough wonderful things about her and Kelley Cannon Events. Because of her our wedding day was as smooth as can be and we partied the night away with no issues. I would recommend her and her team a million times to any future brides!

  • Kelley is AMAZING at what she does. From our first meeting, I knew we had found a great planner --- she has great taste, an extensive network of vendors, and the organizational skills and experience to make sure everything stays on track (even when we were planning a wedding in 4 months!). My husband and I really appreciated how much Kelley worked with us to create a unique, personal event that reflected our preferences and values, and helped us stay on budget. All of the vendors that Kelley connected us with exceeded our expectations. And the day of the wedding, Kelley and her team made sure every detail was in place and we had nothing to stress about. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful and personal our wedding was, and we could not have done it without Kelley Cannon Events! Kelley is such a lovely person, and my husband and I cannot thank her enough for helping us to create our dream wedding!

  • Kelley is the BEST! We loved having her as our wedding planner she went above and beyond any of our expectations. We got the full planning package and it was worth every penny! Kelley helped us with venue selection, vendors, day of logistics and everything in between. I don't know how we would of put together this special day without her. I also really appreciated her laughter and fun in the whole process, Kelley takes her job extremely seriously but also is a ton of fun to work with! We were living abroad for part of the planning and Kelley was also so flexible and patient with the time difference, which we really appreciated. One of the best things about Kelley and her events team is that they strive for attention to detail and have great relationships with other wedding vendors! Picking vendors you quickly realize is overwhelming, but Kelley strives to find high quality vendors in your budget and helps narrow down the choices when you are picking. You are in great hands with Kelley ... Read more
