I included business cards with my invitations directing guests to our wedding website for more information on "The Best Wedding Ever"!
Hey, no one ever said I was afraid to set the bar high! I set out to have the best wedding ever, and I did.... but I am not too humble to say that without Wes and Modern Moments it never would have happened. Not a chance.
I had 5 five months to plan my wedding, and all I knew for sure was what I DIDN'T want -- I didn't want mason jars, lace, and any of that beige-colored vintage-y country / Victorian stuff that is so in right now.
I wanted my wedding to be a reflection of my hubby and I, and to choose decor, food, drinks, music, etc that we'd remember forever and that accented our beautiful venue. I just didn't know where to start!
Enter Wes. Wes just "got me" right from the beginning. She helped me flush out and execute my vision. She made spot-on vendor recommendations, bounced ideas off of me, wasn't afraid to think outside of the box, was super professional and not afraid to get me out of jams or tell me when something was not a good idea. Wes is a problem solver -- she doesn't just tell your her opinion, she offers solutions and examples.
If your wedding is small and intimate, you need Wes.
If your wedding is large and off the charts, you need Wes.
Anywhere in between, Wes. You get the picture.
No bride can do everything on their own, and if you try to you will lose your freaking mind. Instead of going crazy, hire Wes and the investment will pay off 10 times over.
Plus, she's cool and you'll want to stay in touch with her after your wedding. How many other vendors will you say that about?

I used Modern Moments as my "day of" coordinating service and was so glad I did! This was a great package for the bride who wants to plan the big day herself, but sit back and relax on her day. They were very professional and helped me to create a schedule for the day of my wedding and met with me mulitiple time before the big day so that I was at ease before the wedding. Kristina, my wedding coordinator, was at the venue for my rehearsal and then came the day of the wedding and set up my entire ceremony and reception areas exactly the way I wanted! I didn't have to do anything other than bring her all my decorations and show up. They also did an excellent job of coordinating with my other vendors to make the wedding all come together seamlessly, and without headaches. This was absolutely the best service for my money, hands down! My wedding could not have been more perfect and I owe most of that to the help of the wonderful ladies at Modern Moments!!

After meeting with several well-known Austin wedding planners, my husband and I knew that we wanted to work with Wes immediately after meeting with her. Unlike other wedding planners, she completely blew us away during our initial meeting. She impressed us with her professionalism and knowledge of the business. She was highly-organized and meticulous, and her approach and process matched up perfect with what we had been looking for in our planner. Moreover, Wes's demeanor exuded confidence and control, which made us feel extremely comfortable. Her excellent organizational skills and keen attention to detail took form as we approached our wedding day. She took charge of all the details of our wedding - removing the stress and burden from our shoulders, allowing us to enjoy those precious moments leading up to and on our magical wedding day.
Our wedding day went without a single glitch. She planned everything down to the minute, and she made sure everything ran like clockwork - from coordinating with the Four Seasons staff to tasking, overseeing and cueing our vendors. On our big day, we were able to enjoy the memorable moments with each other, our family and friends. We highly recommend that you use Wes and Modern Moments to plan and coordinate your big day. Take it from us...you'll be glad you did!

While planning a wedding for 300+ people I knew I would need some help and Wes and Kristina were exactly what I needed to get everything in order for the rehearsal and the day of the wedding! One thing (on top of many) that I really really loved about Wes is she was always so quick to respond to emails which is HUGE for a crazy, stressed out bride! Wes and I worked together to make the perfect day of timeline and her and Kristina ensured that everything went as planned and so smoothly. I couldn't have asked for better wedding coordinators and would definitely recommend Modern Moments to all brides to be!

We booked Modern Moments for day-of wedding coordination services and then paid for a few extra consultation hours so that we could get their recommendations and guidance with choosing vendors and wedding planning. Boy, are we glad that we did!! I don’t know what we would have done without Wes and Kristina! They were essential in helping us pick out our vendors and guiding us along the way - we pretty much went with all of their recommendations and our wedding turned out perfectly! We received sooo many compliments - everybody had a blast! I found that as the bride, people expected me to make all the decisions and were afraid to influence me too much in one direction, which is preferred by some brides, but when faced with difficult and stressful decisions, I like to seek the advice of others. No question was too small or big for Modern Moments - they were so willing to help in any way, knew exactly how to put my mind at ease when I had concerns, and presented me with options that matched what I was looking for and made my decisions easy. They were always prompt in their response and when I didn’t know the right way to communicate my needs or concerns to a vendor, they were always there to help out. On the day of the wedding, I felt completely confident being in their hands. Kristina worked double hard to make sure that everything came together - both in the days leading up to it and on the day of. We had a few mishaps (as weddings usually do) but she took care of all the behind the scenes issues and as far as anyone knew, things went smoothly and our friends and families were able to enjoy the wedding without having to deal with the stress that can so often happen during weddings. Take it from me - we were on the fence about getting a wedding planner, but everything is easier when you do, and Wes and Kristina exceeded my expectations in every way. In addition to being excellent at what they do, they are good, kind-hearted people that only have your best interest in mind. They were worth every single penny and then some - I highly recommend them!!

I don't know how anyone has a wedding without a coordinator. Although I felt pretty comfortable handling all of the pre-planning I knew that I did not want to deal with the day of coordination. I wanted to be able to enjoy the day and not worry about the little things. I am SO glad we chose Wes. From our very first meeting we were confident that she would take good care of us. And she did. I didn't have to worry about a thing and if something came up she was right there to help out and handle it. I would highly recommend Wes & Modern Moments!

My wedding coordinator was amazing!! I had a country wedding in Austin, Tx. I had several requests that I tried to make as simple as possible, but when it comes down to it...it's a lot of work. For example, every centerpiece was different and I wanted them to all look a certain way. I had all the items needed in totes and pictures of what each one needed to look like. Seems simple, but it's still a lot of work. My coordinator, Kristina, did an excellent job of really understanding the true look and feel that I was going for. It was so beautiful! I was actually getting into a mode of preparing for disappointment b/c I felt like there were several things that I wanted that weren't going to happen ...well, everything happened! My wedding was even more gorgeous than what I expected!!! I couldn't have asked for anything more.
Kristina asked all the right questions, she was there for me at any moment that I needed her, and worked harder than I would even want her to work that day. She even dressed the part that day! So cute to see her in cowboy boots! :)

From the first time I met Wes and Kristina with Modern Moments I knew that they were going to be able to create my "vision" for my wedding overnight. I was already pretty much done with all of the planning but needed someone to help me with all the little details and putting it all together. They were amazing women with lots of talent and turned my vision into my Fairytale wedding all in 3 months. Without them I don't know how my wedding would have turned out. They kept me focused, organized, and not stressed at all.
I would recommend them to any future bride. Thank you Modern Moments for being there for me every step of the way and making my wedding the best day of my life..we couldn't have done it without you :)
