  • My (now) Husband and I were very intentional about finding a wedding coordinator for our summer 2020 wedding. Although from California, we both lived in New York while wedding planning and it was important to us to have a planner that knew the Carmel area, that could be our eyes and ears while we were away. We began working with Kaitlin in fall of 2019 and were immensely enjoying our calls, in-person meetings, and overall experience with Kaitlin. As soon as COVID entered the equation, we found ourselves in a very difficult position and under extreme parameters due to my husband’s military career. 2020 quickly took an unforeseen turn for weddings, however Kaitlin was our bright light through it all. We made the difficult decision to forego our original wedding plan, and reschedule a micro wedding in my family’s backyard in less than two weeks, due to the military. We cannot praise Kaitlin enough for her patience, sound guidance and genuine care for us as a couple. At times, she b... Read more

  • WINNER OF THE “HELPING COUPLES SURVIVE 2020” AWARD!! But really: Kaitlin is more than just a planner. She’s magic personified. She’s the positive and hardworking force you need when your venue cancels your wedding 2 months before the date and makes you start over in a new city with new vendors. She’s the support and encouragement you need when you’re feeling overwhelmed and stressed at the long list of “to dos” still waiting. She’s the person you will rely on most, and one you can count on to handle that pressure and help relieve it. Kaitlin takes as much off your plate as she can, making sure to check in and provide updates as she works. She has so many good ideas and a real understanding of what it takes to make visions come to life. There were a lot of moments when I thought “there’s no way this can be done,” and then I mentioned an idea or request to Kaitlin and she made it happen. Kaitlin is who you need — bottom line. She’s also who you WANT for your e... Read more

  • We interviewed a lot of wedding planners and we are so glad we picked Kaitlin. She did a fantastic job of making our vision a reality. She left us with nothing to worry about on the day of our wedding and made sure that every detail was checked off of the list. Kaitlin was also instrumental with assisting us in ironing out some issues we had with one of our vendors which caused a lot of stress for us. We love that she advocates for her couples and cares about providing the best experience possible. We don't know what we would have done without her.

  • Wow were we lucky to have Kaitlin as our wedding coordinator. She is amazing to work with. She was always there for me to answer any of my questions or calm any worries we had. She made the whole weekend event run so smoothly. There wasn't anything we needed that she didn't have or was already on top of before we even asked. She worked so well behind the scenes that if anything was off or going wrong we certainly would not have known it. We highly recommend Kaitlin. There is no doubt in my mind that without her the weekend would not have been the same. I was so much more relaxed knowing Kaitlin and her Pocket Full of Plans staff had everything under control. I hope I get the opportunity to work with Kaitlin again in the future.

  • My husband and I got married in Carmel, CA in July 2019. We hired Kaitlin early in the wedding planning process and it is the best decision we made! Kaitlin is not only the kindest person (and someone I now consider a friend) but her work ethic, organizational skills, eye for detail and recommendations throughout the process were why our destination wedding was such a success. Kaitlin is positive, patient and really helps make your dreams come true (while always keeping you on track!) Given we were planning from Canada, it was crucial to find someone we could put a lot of trust in to help plan our big day. Because of Kaitlin, our wedding day exceeded any expectations we ever had. We were able to relax and enjoy every second of it while Kaitlin and team worked behind the scenes to coordinate vendors and put out any fires that came up. She even made a point to bring us donuts / late night tacos when we were too busy socializing and entertaining to get there ourselves. :) I can't say enou... Read more

  • I started working with Kaitlin about 5 months before my wedding, and it was the BEST decision I could have made. Kaitlin was so organized, accessible, calm, and so fun to work with! Kaitlin made sure our wedding day went off without a hitch, and made me feel calm, cool, and collected the entire time. I really was able to enjoy the day because I knew Kaitlin had everything taken care of. This type of peace of mind on your wedding day in invaluable. I also gained a friend along the way :) Thanks Kaitlin!!

  • A key reason why our daughter’s wedding on June 29, 2019 turned out so wonderful is because of Kaitlin Ford, Pocketful of Plans. She is professional, patient, and positive. Her calm and confident demeanor from start to finish was what we needed. She takes the time to get to know your style and vision and then executes it on your wedding day. She is very accessible through emails, texts and phone calls. Always felt we were the only wedding she was working on. Kaitlin has great connections to local vendors and all her recommendations were spot on, especially with the tent and rentals. Outdoor weddings comes with many what ifs and Kaitlin handled obstacles like a pro. Our guests were in awe of everything. She captured our vision to a T and made our daughter’s wedding truly magical! I highly recommend Kaitlin at Pocketful of Plans for your wedding coordinator.

Wishing you all lots of love and happiness! -Kaitlin

  • I used Kaitlin for the month of my wedding and she was beyond amazing. She made everything flawless and made all of my wedding dreams come true. My day wouldn't have been the same without Kaitlin and all of her outstanding efforts she made to make our wedding day flawless. She is a true rockstar and is extremely knowledgeable about everything. I couldn't be more thankful for Pocketful of Plans!

  • Our dream wedding would not have been possible with out Kaitlin’s endless dedication! She saw us through so many obstacles and still pulled off more than we could’ve ever imagined.

She goes above and beyond to make your day special and truly feels like family by the end of the process. Thank you for everything Kaitlin. We are beyond grateful to have found you!

  • Kaitlin is awesome! She was our coordinator for our 11/10 wedding and the day went by just as I had hoped. She was there for those whole process, and went above and beyond to make our day come together perfectly. With my personality I need to get things done right away and she knew exactly how to make sure that my worries were taken care of. She made the day so flawless and her team even put together my dessert station - which was beautiful! I cannot thank her enough for all of her amazing work for the wedding. I was fully able to relax that day because I was confident that she was taking care of everything. Thank you Kaitlin!!

  • Our wedding weekend was incredible, thanks to Kaitlin Ford, the owner of Pocketful of Plans (POP). The problem with such a great wedding and an ever GREATER wedding planner is that we won’t have the chance to work again to plan another wedding, which we would do in a heartbeat with Kaitlin. She’s a dynamite, rock-star planner and we couldn’t have asked for more. She came to us as a recommendation and we can confidently say that any couple planning a wedding in the Monterey area would be lucky to have her on their team. We opted for the full planning package, which meant that we started working with Kaitlin 7 months before the wedding. One of her greatest strengths is the ability to keep the process moving along, focusing on the big priorities and making sure big-ticket items like venue, caterer, photographer/videographer and DJ are secured first. With the big items out of the way, Kaitlin works tirelessly to make sure that all of the little details on the Wedding To Do Li... Read more

    Thank you so much Michael. You're kind words mean so much. Spending so much time working together was such a wonderful process I really miss out weekly calls! Getting to know you, J and M so personally is really why I love my job and could imagine anything different. You all make my job worth every long hour and achy feet at the end of the weekend. Wishing you and the whole family tons of love, happiness and joy in the years to come, and I will see you next time you are in Monterey!

  • Kaitlin is AMAZING from start to finish. She was our day of coordinator at our wedding in Monterey on 9/15/18 and seriously could not have been an unforgettable day WITHOUT ALL OF HER HELP. She already had prior knowledge of our venue, so that was a plus! She helped me tremendously when it came to keeping it together with all the planning. She has a lot of connections and suggestions on things that I never would have thought of and I am very grateful that she was always there to help us. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind coordinator, don't look any further because KAITLIN FORD is the ONE! My husband and I knew it from the start when we had our first conversation on the phone with her and she answered all of our questions. She made our wedding day special and put personal touches (we definitely could not forget the added touches of flowers to our wedding cake, THANK YOU!) She was ON TOP OF EVERYTHING, when it came to schedule, food, unexpected things, etc. I was able to relax durin... Read more

  • I just can’t say enough positive things about Kaitlin and pocketful if plans. I just got married in pebble beach and she did an amaaaazing job! From start to finish she was there for me, she has infinite patience and we really could not have done it without her! I don’t know how she does it but she makes you feel like you are her only client! I received so many compliments from the guests at our wedding on how smooth the day went and how well organized it was. Also, the day of the wedding she is just so amazing, made me feel taken care of the whole day and kept me sooo calm! Hiring this company is very very worth it for your special day!

    Thank you so much Jodie! You were a dream bride to work with, I feel like the planning process flew by because you were always such a joy to talk to and so funny! I enjoyed every second of working with you! Your wedding was so beautiful and so personal, I feel so lucky that I got to be a part of it. I wish you and K the absolute best and please let me know when you come back to town, I'd love to see you both again!

  • Hiring Kaitlin and the Pocketful of Plans team was the best decision we made for planning our wedding. She made planning the wedding absolutely smooth and we never once felt overwhelmed. She incorporated all of our suggestions, ideas and visions, and encouraged us to make it personal to us, even if it meant a lot more work for her. Morever, all of her recommended vendors did an amazing job in making our wedding day perfect. She was a great communicator and so easy to get a hold of. There was no task, detail or challenge that she wasn't ready to tackle. I highly recommend Kaitlin and Pocketful of Plans to plan your big day.

  • Kaitlin was an absolute lifesaver for my wedding day! She handled all of my month-of details and day of coordination. I love planning and planned most of my wedding - but let me tell you by the time the big day was a month away, my brain was completely fried. Luckily, I didn't stress at all because we trusted Kaitlin fully, and she totally delivered! From confirming all vendors, dealing with set up and clean up, creating the day of schedule, she was on top of it! It was so important to me that my mother and close family members didn't have to deal with any details on the day of the wedding, and because of Kaitlin all we had to do was show up and enjoy the day. She kept myself and the wedding party updated on set up, helped us down the aisle, ensured that my husband and I had extra food and cake slices in our room for the end of the night, and went above and beyond to make sure my floral centerpieces were donated rather than be thrown away. I could go on and on listing the millions of t... Read more
