  • I am delighted to give Weddings and Events by Kristin my highest possible recommendation! 5 Stars isn’t enough to properly express the fantastic job that Kristin and her team did at my daughter’s wedding last weekend. We hired Kristin as soon as our daughter selected her date and venue, and she has been with us ever since with references to excellent vendors, timely advice, and planning. She and her lead assistant Gibson are enthusiastic and engaging, and bring great ideas for décor, timelines, etc. On the day of the wedding Kristin led a team of three of her staff taking care of everything imaginable – always one step ahead. Things went smoothly, even as we had to move the ceremony itself indoors due to rain, and they worked with the venue to still have cocktails outdoors immediately afterwards as the rain had stopped. The next day when we asked the new couple what some favorite memories of the day had been, one of them was the sense of confidence and calm that we all fe... Read more

  • Words can’t describe how awesome this team is. I appreciate each and everyone on Kristin’s team for not only making our day perfect but being a shoulder to lean on even before the wedding day. My husband being diabetic needed to stay hydrated and they made sure he got his cranberry juice consistently! My venue was giving us a hard time about lemonade and Kristin and team without hesitation said “that’s all you want that’s easy we got you” they made my day with chick fil-a lemonade!!! My decorations were mainly made at home by my mother and they made sure to put everything up where I wanted and followed my exactly perfectly. If you need referrals for vendors they have you covered, contact your vendors, understand your wedding vision and help you carry it out, do you need your dress bustled no problem they got it covered, a shoulder to lean on when guest drive you nuts they got your back, RSVP’s not coming back on time they will make the calls for you to those late respond...

  • If you are having doubts on whether or not you actually "need" this service the answer is YES! Turns out quite a few of my family members thought I was spending money needlessly on a day-of-coordinator and yet each one of them came up to me after the wedding to say how incredible Kristin and her team was! They help with so much more than I ever expected. My entire day from start to finish ran so smoothly and if there were any hiccups I knew nothing about them which is exactly the point. Also I was happy in knowing that all of my family and friends could enjoy themselves without having to help me remember various things throughout the day. Give yourself the peace of mind and go with Kristin and her team. They are outgoing, reliable, organized and really fun to work with!

  • I was about a month out from my bridal shower when I reached out to Kristin and her team for help. I was overwhelmed with making sure everything was done and perfect and did not want to be going through the same thing right before my wedding. Kristin and I spoke and she introduced me to Gibson. After taking to them both I already felt so much better so I decided to hire them on. We made a plan to meet and review where I was at and go over the wedding plans. I had already done almost everything. I just needed the reassurance that what I was doing would actually work. Did I have enough decor? Did my color scheme work? Was my dream enough to be a reality. I met with the ladies and they made me feel so much better about my big day! As time went on I started to question hiring them. It wasn’t a small amout of money and I had done almost all of the work myself. Then my wedding day came... I do not know what I would have done without Kristin, Gibson, Allen and Jessica. Every single time I t... Read more

  • Hiring Kristin was the best decision we made regarding our daughter’s wedding! Anyone who is lucky enough to book Kristin will not regret the decision. She and her team are organized, creative, supportive and kind. She understands how to work with a diverse group of vendors and how to make the bride and MOB relaxed. Thank you, Kristin, Gibson, Alan and Shannon - you are the BEST!!!

  • Kristin and her team are a bride-to-be’s dream. PLEASE snag them up before hundreds of other brides. They are so well organized and fantastic at taking the lead and making myself (the bride) feel like I can truly kick back and relax before, during, and after the wedding. They truly made the vision of myself, Peter, and my mother come to life. Special shoutout to Gibson for designing such stunning decor, Alan for keeping me calm and holding my bouquet, and Shannon for helping fix my hair throughout the night. We are so blessed by all of you!

  • There really isn’t enough that I can say about Kristin and her team. They made the day perfect and a total dream. I can’t recommend them enough for every event especially weddings. I really don’t know how we would have survived without them!

  • My wife and I were planning our wedding from across the country. We hired Kristin due to a referral and couldn't have been more happy with the results. Prior to the wedding, Kristin was able to refer quality wedding vendors that we were very happy with, including a florist and a DJ. On the day of the wedding, Kristin and her team helped make the whole day go off without a hitch. My wife and I had at least one staff member assigned to us at all times to make sure that the night was going smoothly, from scheduling to making sure that our drinks were full and that we received all of our hors d'oeuvres even though we were busy greeting the guests. A+!

  • I was the maid of honor in my sister's wedding, and having Kristin and her team help us out was truly one of the best decisions we made! Everyone on her team is so genuinely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They put everyone at ease, and it was a relief to not have all of the coordinating responsibilities on our shoulders, especially on the actual day, so we could focus on enjoying the day. They are on top of everything, and while it seemed extravagant to us at first to hire a wedding planner, we actually saved money because Kristin has great connections and helped us find reasonable deals. She really works to make it the wedding YOU envision. She isn't controlling and doesn't interfere but is so responsive and is always helping to send you in the right direction. My sister (the bride) lived multiple states away during the planning, but that ended up being no problem with Kristin's assistance and the flexibility of all the lovely vendors she set us up with and their eagerness to m...

  • Kristin was absolutely outstanding. We had over 230 people attend our wedding. Kristin was on top of her game from day one. She responded to every email quickly and laid out everything we ever could have possibly imagined. When my wife initially brought up the idea of a wedding planner, I was initially apprehensive about getting one. It turned out to be EASILY the best decision we made throughout the entire wedding process. Kristin made sure everything was set up and the night moved fluidly. After dinner, everyone was having such a good time that our first dances got slightly delayed. Kristin made sure things got back on track and the night could not have been more perfect. Kristin also comes with an army. We had no idea how amazing her staff would be. She handled the logistics for the entire day and made sure things moved smoothly. I don't know what we would have done without her. The day after the wedding, we slightly panicked because we thought my wife's necklace went missing. O... Read more

  • Everyone I worked with at Events by Kristin was friendly, attentive and motivated to do their best to provide a wonderfully smooth and magical wedding. Everyone seemed to have a lot of experience with planning and throwing weddings! Felt like I was in good hands. Kristin herself is personable and relatable. I can’t say enough good things about the girls she had help me day of the wedding, they were on par every moment of the day. Made it so much more of an enjoyable day having them by my side! I am very grateful for how things turned out as a result of their hard work and expertise.
