Kristi's warmth, attention to detail, sweetness and execution of every detail meant the world to me. From the moment I met her, I felt at home with her, knowing I could trust her through the entire process. Her team was so helpful, warm, friendly and easy to work with. Kristi, thank you for helping to make my day so special and smooth. Thank you!!!

Andrea and Stacy

Kristi was an absolute dream to work with. With a year filled with so many ups, downs and challenges, she was a constant that helped keep us steady. Her insight and knowledge is of the most value and help. I can't recommend her and her team enough to help with the Wedding day. You won't regret it!

Rachel and Chris

Kristi helped us create the exact vision we were wanting for our day! From helping us choose table decor during planning to grabbing the bridal party shots before the grand entrance- she did it all! Kristi literally thinks of everything and no detail goes unnoticed! I can't say enough good things about her! All of my family members and friends were able to relax and enjoy the night because she was taking care of all the details- big and small, making sure the day went off without a hitch! Her services were absolutely worth every penny and I believe every bride should have a Kristi!

Haley and Chuck

We hired Kristi as our day-of planner and it was the best single decision we made during our entire wedding process. She was always bringing up things we should be thinking about that we wouldn't have ever considered if we did this on our own. As easy as she was to "work" with, she is even easier to be around and talk to. It's so clear that she loves her job and she has a gift for defusing our most stressful moments. She took it to the next level on the day of our wedding by keeping everything flowing and on schedule. We still talk about the evening and try to think about how many different things could have gone wrong without Kristi.. she even caught our cake that started to melt from the heat of our neon sign LOL. Hire Kristi for whatever you need if you're looking for everything to go perfectly.
