  • Alison and Jonathan are excellent at what they do, I can't recommend them enough. We met this incredible duo at a local wedding fair and they really stood out from the other wedding planners we talked to because we got the vibe that they genuinely wanted to execute the wedding we envisioned, no up-selling or over-promising anything. My husband and I didn't need full time wedding planning services, but we did need help beyond just the month/day-of coordination. Most of the planners we talked to before meeting Two Kindred were not flexible and would only offer us one or the other, but Two Kindred worked with us to customize a package based on our needs. They truly helped fine-tune what we were envisioning. Throughout the entire planning process, they shed light on all grey areas we weren't sure about, they asked questions we never thought about, and always provided expertise and guidance without ever making us feel like we were compromising our vision. We had a few setbacks occur with ot... Read more

  • Alison and Jonathan are two unassuming superstars. My husband and I had planned a small wedding of just 50 people and weren't sure if we needed wedding planners, but as the process got going we decided we should hire someone to provide help. And we are so glad we did! Alison and Jonathan gave the same attention and care to our small wedding as if it were a 300 person wedding. They were organized, creative, thoughtful and compassionate. They made sure both of us, as well as all of our guests, were well taken care of the day of our wedding. The venue we chose was new to weddings, luckily Alison and Jonathan went above and beyond to not only provide support to us and our guests but also provided support to the caterers and venue when they needed some guidance. Good thing they have a catering background! They are witty, highly professional and caring. Everything you would want from wedding planners. I wouldn't even think about getting married without hiring them.

  • We worked with Jonathan and Alison for 15 months leading up to our wedding in Brooklyn. They curated vendor recommendations based on years of experience and helped us bring our vision to life, from the big picture to the smallest details. This dynamic duo also approached a well known chef in NYC to fulfill our dream of serving delicious food on our wedding day. From start to finish, Jonathan and Alison will be there however you need them. We cannot recommend them enough!

  • Jonathan and Ali were amazing to work with. Incredibly responsive, available to talk to me any time I had questions or worries and put my mind at ease. They helped with both big and little things, guiding me on decisions and giving me their expert opinion. There were a couple little things that happened the day of the wedding that changed what we had originally discussed and they made the necessary decisions making things better than originally planned (without freaking me out)! I would recommend them to any one that is thinking of hiring an event planner for your big day!

  • Can’t speak highly enough of Mr. Jonathan Stamper-Halpin!! We were married at Wythe Hotel in BK and he was our day-of coordinator. Upon signing him, I knew I was in good hands as the hotel event staff immediately recognized and said they were excited and eager to collaborate with him and Two Kindred Events once again. Jonathan offered excellent advice and was able to settle ideas/decisions that my husband and I weren’t in agreement of. He explained wedding traditions and provided examples of scenarios and setups similar to ours. We had a very high guest count which would challenge the normal layout of a family style dinner at the Wythe, but Jonathan’s catering background put us in good hands, as he has a thorough understanding of what works best for the flow of events. Leading up to our big day, we endured a death in the family. Naturally, this threw a curveball our way. Jonathan was sensitive and compassionate. He eased the difficult situation, stayed on top of the cruc... Read more

  • Alison and Jonathan were absolutely fantastic to work with throughout the duration of our wedding planning process. They guided our ideas and were consistently able to help us keep our planning realistic while still honoring the parts that felt authentic to us. Jonathan and Alison provided us with very helpful google spreadsheets and tools that kept our budget, RSVPs, deadlines, and other details clear and easy to follow. We had an extremely DIY wedding, with LOTS of details to track and quantities to order ourselves. TKE made sure we were not in doubt, and had the information we needed. They always came through for us during a freak-out, and provided solutions at every turn when we most needed them. The day of our wedding, they made sure that everything flowed flawlessly. It was truly the best day of our lives, and we couldn’t have done it without Alison and Jonathan!

  • Alison and Jonathan did a spectacular job planning our wedding - We could not have asked for two better people to guide us through the planning process. From the moment we started working with them, they were responsive, professional and informative. They patiently and promptly answered all of our questions, even the really silly ones, and were always two steps ahead of where we needed to be. They did an excellent job of sourcing vendors who reflected the feeling we wanted for our wedding, and they took care of every single detail to make sure that the day went smoothly. All of our wedding guests repeatedly commented about how calm and relaxed we seemed on the wedding day, and this was entirely thanks to the hard work of Alison and Jonathan. They did a fantastic job of making us feel like we were always a priority for them and we highly recommend them without any reservations!

  • Two Kindred Events was amazing to work with. Alison and Jonathan handled all the logistics of our organization's annual gala: venue, vendor relationships, equipment, deliveries, catering, and volunteers. Not only did they work with us to set the schedule for the day of the event, but they were on the ground with us all through the day to manage volunteers, catering, and the venue staff. This was our first year with event coordinators, and it was well worth it. Having TKE felt like a huge burden lifted off our shoulders, and we can't wait to work with them again!

  • Alison and Jonathan were the single best decision we made in planning our wedding. They were everywhere, knew everything, and provided a constant and incredible level of comfort from A-Z. Our wedding was better than we could have ever imagined and we know that is in large part due to Alison and Jonathan. I originally questioned the value of any wedding planner and I have never been happier to be completely and utterly wrong. We cannot recommend them with any more enthusiasm!

  • I hired Alison to be the day of coordinator for my wedding at The Green Building in Brooklyn. I worked in events previously and had strong vision of what I wanted my wedding day to look like, but I needed someone to take my vision and execute it. Alison did so flawlessly. She helped me organize all of the final details for the day and worked hand-in-hand with my vendors to ensure that day went off without a hitch. With any wedding or event there are always issues that come up, but Alison handled them with ease. She is a seasoned planner who truly knows the ins and outs of the industry and is happy to help answer questions no matter how big or small. I highly recommend her!

  • We hired Alison Szleifer & the Two Kindred team for our wedding at the Prospect Park Picnic House at the end of October 2017, and it was one of the best decisions we made. Both leading up to the wedding and on the day of, Alison was a trusted advisor, organizer and problem-solver. She got into the weeds with us on our wedding vision and worked tirelessly to help us execute it by communicating that vision effectively with all our vendors and making sure everyone followed through. She took care of everything and then some, allowing us to truly enjoy our wedding day and not worry about the little details or snags that popped up. She consistently displayed exceptionally calm and caring professionalism and confidence. In addition to helping us hone the vision for our event, she also gave us some fantastic recommendations. Alison & the Two-Kindred team are truly outstanding event planners and we give them our highest praise & endorsement!

  • Last spring, I hired Two Kindred Event Planners to plan and execute a corporate event for a Champagne client. The ask from the client was to take one big, empty space and turn it into three holidays—Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Eve—in the middle of July. Alison and Jonathan went above and beyond, creating a full-on winter wonderland in the extreme New York City heat and transporting the guests to the holiday season for just a few short hours. And they did it in just two short months. They created an event—with minimal direction—incorporating unique touches like a Champagne-colored balloon wall for the photo booth, a 250-pound ice sculpture to chill the Champagne and caviar, florals and tablescapes that made the one room seem like three separate holidays, a balloon drop for “New Years Eve,” and more. They had mood boards and floor plans within a few short days of our initial phone call, handled all vendor communications and payments, and were in constant commun... Read more

  • It was a pleasure working with Jonathan as the event planner for our wedding. He was extremely detail-oriented through each step of the planning process (picking out our furniture rentals, linens, working on a cohesive food menu, timeline for day of, and timeline for wedding preparations) and helped us feel confident that the end result would be amazing, which it was! Jonathan has a ton of experience to draw from which was evident after touring the venue - he has also a superb sense of style which was implemented flawlessly. When we got to our venue, he knew where to put all the decorations, candles, flowers, guestbook, personal items, and etc. He went above and beyond by making additional floral arrangements with our extra flowers, adding some to the serving dishes, and decorated the cake with them - it looked great! On the day of the wedding, both the set up and clean up went unbelievably smoothly - Jonathan took care of all the minor, last minute things that popped up so that... Read more

  • Alison is an expert planner! My husband and I worked with Alison and the Two Kindred Event team for our elopement party in Brooklyn, NY. Alison is very responsive- we sent so many emails with so many questions (e.g. how should the napkins be folded) and Alison answered every single one quickly and without judgment. Alison is extremely proactive- in the days leading up to the event, Alison coordinated with our other vendors (there were many as we had our party in an empty loft space) and the setup was seamless. We didn’t have to lift a finger! In fact, by the day of the event Alison knew us so well that she took care of the extras that we did not explicitly discuss (instant cameras, decorative signs, etc.) and when we arrived they were perfectly placed around the venue! Throughout the night, Alison and her team made sure everything ran smoothly- we were truly guests at our own party! In short, Alison is the best. Working with her is like planning a party with your best friend- if your... Read more

  • Working with Jonathan to organize our wedding has been an absolute pleasure. His professionalism, attention to detail, and humor made planning our day as smooth as can be. On the day, we really felt like we were able to enjoy the moment to the fullest, as everything was being taking care of in the background. To be top it all off, we felt reassured and calm throughout the process, as Jonathan was replying to any emails/questions we had within the hour!
