  • Purple Orchird has a wonderful team! Me and my fiancé ended up not going with any kind of planner (we will see if that was a mistake or not) but purple orchid rep, Kristina, was VERY nice and helped me out even when she knew that we weren't going to hire them. She understood my situation and wanted what was best for me. I cant imagine the kind of service they will provide for people who actually give them money! They are fantastic people and if you need a planner, purple orchid are the ones to hire!

  • WOW were we lucky to have hired this group! Not only did they keep everything wonderfully organized (a trait I can't exactly boast of myself) but they had great ideas and managed some last minute snags without my or my family ever knowing about it! Jarron is impressively efficient and organized and thought of all the things we hadn't well before the wedding weekend. It was such a relief having Jarron and Katherine around to run the day, organize the table settings, set up the ceremony stage, corral guests into the barn just before it briefly rained, bring our dog down to the reception to say hi and even help procure late night pizza! We are so grateful to them for making the day happen so fabulously!

    Angelina, Thank you so much for your kind words! We had SUCH a blast working with you and Ravi during your special weekend. It was such a joy for us to see the beautiful, colorful and FUN day! It was especially lovely to see two loving families coming together. Congratulations a million times and please keep in touch! We can't wait to see how your love story continues. Sending love and laughter

  • We are still on cloud 9 from our wedding and cannot thank Kristina and her team enough for making it all happen. From the endless phone calls to all the last minute details to the most perfectly orchestrated day, Kristina did a truly phenomenal job. Even my mom has not stopped raving about our incredible coordinator--we didn't have to worry about a thing and could not have imagined a better day. Thank you and we hope to cross paths again soon!

  • We had an amazing experience with Nikki, Kristina and Jarron on the Purple Orchid Events team. Nikki was our main planner and she was absolutely fantastic! I knew we were in great hands. She was excellent at making sure all the t's were crossed and i's were dotted - making sure every little detail was ready to go and taken care of. We had our dream wedding and it could not have happened with out this team! Nikki was great at checking in with me as the wedding day got closer to answer any of my numerous questions and to help take care of the vendors as well. I left her all my notes and items that I wanted set up a certain way, and everything was executed beautifully! (even better than I could've hoped for). The day went so smoothly thanks to Nikki and Jarron - I can't thank them enough and would highly recommend Purple Orchid Events to any future bride. We booked them after my husband's sister used them - another fantastic wedding, which after attending, I knew I could trust this... Read more

  • Kristina and her team (Katherine & Jarron) were amazing! I think my laid back personality frightened Kristina at first as I'm a super procrastinator, but she helped make sure all tasks were complete before the wedding. They made sure my day went smoothly. Zach and I were not bothered with anything the day-of and had the best day of our lives. Kristina took us down to a local spot on the ocean to take pictures. I only have a few from the photographer and they are AMAZING- can't wait to see more! Jerron cleaned up as much as possible, making the cleanup the following day super easy. I would highly recommend Kristina and her crew. Kristina is super organized and experienced, and easy to work with. Thanks so much!!

  • Brian and I are still trying to find the right words to think you and your team for what was a fairytale wedding for us. From the moment I first talked to you I knew you were the planner I wanted to work with. You made everything so easy to plan and make last minute changes. The amount of compliments we received about YOU from Saturday night is incredible. You transformed the boring classic white wedding tent wedding into a colorful wildflower explosion party that was just ABOVE and BEYOND what I ever even knew was possible! It still baffles me all that planning we did with a million email and just paper discussions on a vision turned into that magical weekend. From taking control at the church rehearsal (still cracking up about that night and Fr. Ed) to the boat then riding around in golf carts when I probably should have been getting ready… oops.. you let my carefree spirit run free and I felt doted on hand and foot. “No” literally never came out of your mouth when I asked ...

  • Hiring Purple Orchid was hands down the BEST decision we made in our wedding planning process. Our wedding day was a complete fairytale and we were able to live every moment fully because Kristina and Meli were there to take care of everything for us as coordinators. We started planning about two years prior to our actual wedding day, and being from New York, we needed someone with knowledge of the area. I immediately clicked with Kristina and felt in such good hands. She was so patient with me every step of the way and always made me feel like a priority, even though my wedding was so far away and she surely had events that were sooner and more pressing. She led us to incredible vendors and as we got closer to the wedding, our stress level actually DECREASED because she handled all of the coordination in the weeks and days leading up. She made us feel so relaxed and well taken care of on the day and on top of it all, she is just such a kind and fun person to have with you on that very... Read more

  • Where to begin with Kristina- our wedding was amazing beyond our wildest dreams and we couldn't have done it without her. For a long time we ambitiously attempted to plan a large-ish wedding on a private property from long distance single-handedly and once we realized that this was impossible to do while working full-time jobs, we sought out a planner. From our first conversation with Kristina she immediately started making suggestions and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to work with someone who has as much experience as she has, and who has worked with so many local vendors. Kristina was fantastic and just what we needed-- she was responsive and professional, mentioned every detail that we might have overlooked, and was straightforward while being kind, encouraging, and unbelievably generous. On the day of the wedding I was able to leave the site to get ready and had total confidence in Kristina that everything would be in the right place, and when I came back everything was set i...

  • We worked mostly with Chelsea and she exceeded all of our expectations as our wedding coordinator. Chelsea has such a confident, upbeat attitude, which really helped lower our stress levels throughout planning. We hired her for day-of coordination for our wedding at a flower farm. The venue was a blank slate property in the sense that all vendors needed to be brought in, as nothing was provided by the venue. Even though we had hired for day-of coordination, rather than using full planning services, Chelsea went above and beyond. She reached out to vendors and made sure the wedding schedule was given to all vendors and everyone was on the same page. She was organized, reliable, and made sure we had all of our bases covered. There were many moving pieces with our wedding, and we are SO happy to have found Chelsea. She really helped us feel at ease and kept us on track with our priorities and timeline. She has the most awesome, positive personality, and handled everything calmly and p... Read more

  • Hiring " The Purple Orchid, Event Planning" was the best decision we made for a successful and fun wedding. Kristina Slocum was quick to respond to us and thought of so many details we didn't even think of. The week before, and especially the day of the wedding was so "stress-free" knowing that they taking care of everything. I would highly recommend this business!!

    It was such a pleasure working with all of you. What a perfect day! Thank you, Kristina and Team

  • Book them! This team is worth every penny. We hired the team at The Purple Orchid to assist with day of coordination for our wedding. Chelsea and Melissa began working with us about 6-8 weeks before our wedding and were on top of every detail! They were always positive, helpful and flexible. They are also incredibly organized, so I never doubted their ability to coordinate among our vendors . On the day of our wedding, they were so helpful and flew under the radar the entire time. They organized all of our decorations and our large bridal party (18). We ran into two small issues (rain and our DJ), but Chelsea and Melissa did their best to ensure everything rain smoothly - we were so happy! They even brought us food to make sure we ate before we started chatting with guests. I have no reservations about recommending the team at The Purple Orchid. They are the best event planning team I have ever come across.

    Ana- you two are wonderful with amazing family and friends. This made made it really easy to try to want to do everything we could for your special day! Sending much love, Chelsea and Melissa

  • I am a photographer. I have photographed weddings, i have been to weddings, and like a crazy woman I decided that I would plan my entire wedding. Planning an entire wedding is really hard to do and I do not suggest it for most people. Having a professional to make sure you are doing things right is really important. I made the decision to hire a day of planner because I wanted to enjoy the day rather then direct it. Kristina was great. She and I got together about two months before the wedding and came up with a plan on how the day should be. She sent me forms to fill out so that I could have a time line, so that she would know all my vendors, she would know what a I ordered for the wedding and from whom and she made sure that all the planning I had done was correct. She found a few mistakes that I had made in my ordering and she worked with my vendors to fix them. She worked with my Officiant and all of these different vendors and had them all working together to make my day a... Read more

    Hi Dana! I'm looking through your wedding photos and want to re-live that day. It was so wonderful and what a great group of people. Hope you are having a great fall season. Best, Kristina

  • Thank you so much Kristina for ensuring that my husband and I had the best wedding. Kristina went above and beyond from the moment we hired her. She is THE BEST! We got married on an island in Maine and we planned the wedding from Denver, CO. Despite the numerous logistical issues we ran up against Kristina was there to calm us down and make sure everything went according to plan. She is proactive, professional, detail-oriented, and yet manages to be laid back and fun. Our calls with Kristina were usually very late for her (time zone differences) but she was always available and happy to help. She went above and beyond what we even expected and saved us multiple times when things fell through or we needed a last minute change. She worked so well with our other Maine vendors and her assistance on the day of was unbelievable. Honestly, my husband and I always say she was our best wedding planning decision and we recommend her services to anyone!! THANK YOU Kristina!! - Pauline and Jody

  • Kristina, Nikki and Team were fantastic to work with. The party was a 50th anniversary for 150 guests, and the there were many details to coordinate from two catering companies, to bringing pies in for dessert. The actual party was so much fun and I did not have to think about a thing. Everything was taken care of and I would recommend Purple Orchid to anyone.
