I will start by saying it has taken me weeks to curate this review because it’s extremely hard to put into words EVERYTHING that Kirsten and her amazing planning services truly was to me leading up to and most importantly on my wedding day. She...
went above and beyond to ensure every detail was accounted for and reaffirmed for me many times that I was the bride and deserved a beautiful and special day, as I lost sight of that at times throughout the process. A certified expert in all things wedding-related, she was the guide I needed to navigate all of the intricate details of wedding planning which were magnified given an altered plan due to COVID and a revised intimate setting and guest list. I have to honestly say I underestimated the value of a planner initially, but the stress that she allowed to be removed from my plate as the bride was PRICELESS. At even the slightest mention of an issue, Kirsten’s solutions-focused mindset was always ready to quickly help me reset and make a decision given the many options she quickly provided. She personally helped my husband and I ensure our look, wedding day, and abbreviated honeymoon was AMAZING (above and beyond)! To say she was helpful is an understatement...she was critical and a necessity to the success of our day, the visionary behind the look and flow of everything, and truly a gem to work with as she cares about every single component and ensures the consistency in all of the moving parts given various vendors and timelines. Do yourself a favor and hire a planner who will listen to your desires and have your best interests at heart while executing a flawless event..it’s worth every PENNY and Kirsten is the person who can handle it all for you while keeping your vision and happiness as her ultimate goal.

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!! Kirsten brought together a goal of being married before 2021 with only less than one month to plan. I call her my Olivia Kope (Olivia Pope) because she either had the answers or connect for anything and everything. ...
I could not imagine planning this micro wedding ceremony without her. I knew she had made an impression on my now Husband .. when his response to decisions were “what would Kirsten do/say”. She kept us organized and prompt and worked well with family and friends who also thought they were Wedding/Event planners . She was not just my Wedding Planner but my Friend, Big Sister, Mother (at times), Teacher, Preacher, Therapist and more. From the bottom of our heart, we thank you for making 12-27-2020 the best day of 2020. - The Downers

To say Kirsten was the most important part of our wedding day coming together would be an incredible understatement.
I really enjoy planning things for myself, my friends, and family: parties, outings, dinners, vacations, etc. I’m a checklist ...
& full schedule kind of person. So when it came time for me to hand over the reins for my wedding, it was a very different experience for me. Not because I didn’t trust her, but because I’m so used to throwing myself in to make everything happen. Kirsten handled all the vendors, worked with my friends to get everything set up perfectly at the venue, and insisted I not lift a finger the day of the wedding. (My biggest challenge!) She made sure we ate, that we were comfortable and happy, and we had what we needed. At the end of the day my father asked specifically about her, because he was unbelievably impressed with her, and all she had done. Considering I get my “make a list, then go get it done” traits from him, that speaks volumes.
I know full well she walked/jogged/ran all over that venue all day (and it was HOT!). And somehow she never stopped making us feel like she was genuinely happy to be sharing the day with us, and that our happiness and ease were her utmost priority.
I ran into Kirsten a couple of weeks after the wedding and I could have burst out of my skin. I might have tackled her. OK, I did tackle her. Because I adore her, and truly enjoyed getting to know her over these past couple months.
I would not have been able to enjoy my wedding day the way I did without Kirsten. It was truly the most amazing day ever.
For anyone on the fence about hiring a day of coordinator or wedding planner, please listen when I say that you truly need one to fully enjoy your special day. And if you want it to be flawless, that person better be Kirsten.

Kirsten was engaged and genuinely vested in us enjoying our wedding. We'd selected Kirsten as our day of coordinator but she met with several times prior to our wedding to make sure she understood everything we planned and expected for the day ...

Kirsten and her team at 12in12 Design Group were an extreme delight to work with! We hired her as our Month of Coordinator but she available to assist us even before the contract went into effect. During our phone calls, the question that she t...
ypically led with was "How can I help you not feel so stressed?" or "What are the areas that are stressing you the most, so that I can be of assistance?". This was a breath of fresh air because with most vendors you are greeted with a running to do list.
Kirsten was great when it came to managing vendor relationships and she was not afraid to be the voice of the couple. She made sure to ensure that our needs and desires were met. Managing vendors can be a juggling act but she left her mark on them and each of them came up to us to say "Gosh, I just love her!", which echoed our thoughts of Kirsten as well!
We also had a lively wedding party of 14 different personalities and managing these adults was quite the task in itself but her and her team knew just how to communicate to keep them in line and keep their spirits bright! I am not sure how Yvonne from 12in12 Design Group did it but she made sure that all 7 groomsmen looked their best and were wrinkle free! She even helped Hubby look his best for our big day! :)
The communication was a mixture between email, phone call, and text message, so it was pretty convenient to quickly discuss our wedding needs. The final 30 days leading up to the wedding are the most stressful and quick communication is very crucial, so I loved having Kirsten readily available to help me feel calm despite the chaos around me. If you or anyone that you know are in need of a Wedding Planner or Month/Day of Coordinator, I would definitely recommend choosing Kirsten and her amazing team at 12in12 Design Group! They will help you turn your dream wedding into reality!

ld be difficult to relinquish that responsibility to someone else. It was important that the coordinator must be able to manage the details of the day just as I would and Kirsten exceeded my expectations in every facet! From the moment I met her she was prompt, courteous, decisive and knowledgeable. Her professionalism and personality eased all of my initial concerns. I was incredibly impressed at how she was able to recognize which aspects that were extremely important to us in addition make appropriate decisions for those details we were dispassionate about. Needless to say the wedding day was perfect, greater than everything we imagined and we are so thankful to have had Kirsten by our side.
