About this Vendor

Custom Proposals & Service Tailored To Your Needs

OUR APPROACH Choosing a wedding planner is different than selecting other vendors. We communicate with our couples on a weekly, sometimes daily basis for months on end and often we're involved with personal aspects of their life, so we think it's important to offer personalized service. At Lovely, we build partnerships with our clients and prioritize open communication, starting with your quote. SERVICES No wedding is ever the same and every couple has varying needs and capabilities. We don't believe in boxing couple's into packages. We offer a selection of services and support as a starting point, but ultimately work with you to build a custom proposal tailored to your needs. Visit our site to see our service offerings then work with us! Schedule a call or meet us for a coffee.

Kristen is phenomenal. She is a wedding goddess and truly the greatest asset you could ever expect to help you plan the greatest day of your life. Initially, I was vehemently opposed to hiring a wedding planner- I thought it was a waste of money, our previous experiences with... Read More wedding planners had been disastrous, and I've planned events for hundreds of people before without any hired help. But Kristen made our lives, and the entire planning process, infinitely easier. She navigated between my and my husband's more casual/earthy preferences and my mom's more formal requests. I think I would have lost my mind if she wasn't around to help. In the end, our rustic-elegant wedding was lightyears beyond perfect. Our family and friends are still raving about what a beautiful, happy wedding it was. Kristen saved us monstrous amounts of research time and money with her knowledge and creativity. She knew where it was worth it to spend or to DIY without driving ourselves nuts. When I pulled a couple photos to give her a glimpse of our wedding vision, she immediately turned around with a Pinterest board of photos that was spot-on. And that made everything easier, especially with the florist (FYI for those of you who don't know flowers, she is a flower genius). She helped find gifts to give out to all the women (my wedding was on Mother's Day), printed/folded our programs, created a flip-flop basket, handled all the signage, and put together a "Bucket List" for our guests to sign. She was able to take care of all the small details that helped make the wedding feel that much more personal. She's also incredibly organized. She handled the hordes of vendors and payments, called and compared pricing, and sent us off with lists of things we wanted to take care of to keep us organized and ahead of schedule. Tell her anything once, and you can trust she'll take care of it. And I can't tell you how many vendors I encountered that made me feel like my wedding was just another gig. Which is understandable, from their perspective. But Kristen actually cares, and helped me get so excited about the wedding. She knows that this is likely one of the most important days of your life, and will treat it as such. She responds as soon as she can (sometimes immediately, if she's available), and will even be there to give you the biggest hug and pep talk if you get overwhelmed (it may have happened). I can't tell you how much of a difference it makes. Most importantly, she is just the warmest, most wonderful person you'll ever meet. You can't not love her. She's the person you'll enjoy talking to and spending time with. She's just a million percent pure joy. If you're even considering hiring a wedding planner, she's the best choice out there.

I can honestly say that hiring Kristen to be the day of coordinator for our wedding was the best money we spent, she is AMAZING at what she does. I had a very large wedding with over 300 people, a large wedding party, and I was bringing in a lot of rentals and decorative items... Read More to personalize the event space so I knew I would need some help, and THANK GOD for Kristen. When I initially met Kristen, I knew she was the right girl for the job because I immediately felt like I have known her for years. She is such a personable, caring, down-to-earth person and anytime that I was stressed out about anything she knew just what to say to reassure me that everything was going to work out perfectly, and it did. Kristen has an amazing sense of detail and organization and since she has such a strong background in this industry she asks questions and brings to your attention details that you would have never even thought of. The weeks leading up to the wedding she did a walkthrough of the venue with me, developed a timeline of the day, hair and makeup timeline for my bridesmaids, a phot shot list, reached out to every vendor to introduce herself and let them know she was the contact for the day, and she even came to our rehearsal to make sure everything was organized and everyone knew where they had to be. The day of she was at our ceremony for flower delivery, set up of other personal items, and organizing the bridal party’s procession. At the reception she set up every personalized detail from signage, to escort cards, candles, flowers, a memory table, our sweetheart table. She even placed the floral on our wedding cake! When it was time for the reception to begin and she brought us into the venue it was beyond what I could have imagined and I owe that in large part to Kristen. If you are thinking of hiring a wedding coordinator or day of coordinator, I highly recommend Kristen as she is truly the best at what she does.

We hired Kristen as our day-of coordinator for our wedding this past July. She was very helpful along the way. I really appreciated her down-to-earth approach. She's sensible and will lay out the pros and cons in various situations to help you come to a decision. Her knowledge...

She assisted with the transitions from the field, to the barn, to the tent, and ensured that our vision was carried out. I'm sure she did a lot behind the scenes, and my bridesmaids told me that Kristen magically appeared when they needed her. Hiring her was one of the best decisions as it took all the wedding day stress off my shoulders and allowed me to truly enjoy the moment. Know that she will go above and beyond to make sure you are a happy client!

Kristen is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Her attention to detail is crazy, her ideas are sensationally creative and her positivity is contagious. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with Kristen. She planned our entire wedding from start to finish with such precision and focus. Every little... Read More detail was considered far beyond anything I would have ever thought of myself. As the groom, she assessed the areas that I was interested in being involved at the beginning of the process (music and food) and made sure to include me when appropriate. There were also several points along the way where she encouraged me to get creative and put my own touch on certain aspects of the wedding (e.g. bathroom signage and amenities). She knew when to take control and make decisions and when to solicit feedback. I'd definitely recommend her to my buddies and I'm sure their (future) wives will also be thoroughly satisfied.

Kristen was the best decision I made for my wedding. I was planning an at-home wedding on my in-laws property, and thought I just needed her help with the odds and ends, and wanted to secure a day-of coordinator as well. Turns out I actually needed Kristen every step of the way... Read More because I'm not even close to being knowledgeable when it comes to the intricacies of event planning. Kristen understood my budget and had creative alternatives for vendors outside of my price range. One of the toughest vendors for me to lock down was a photographer. Kristen was so patient with me, and kept sending possibilities until we found the most perfect, amazing photographer and hired her on the spot. Kristen is the person you want in your corner while you're dealing with in-law stress, family chaos, being overbudget -- the works! As my wedding drew closer, I began to get overwhelmed juggling the details and running my own business, and Kristen was the most perfect, calm voice of reason during my bridezilla moments. She stepped right in and took charge of everything, and my vendors loved her. Since my wedding three months ago, I can happily say that Kristen is now my friend. We even went for mani/pedi's last week because I missed calling her about napkin textures and seat cushions. And because she gives so much of herself to every client she works with, make sure to book her early before her calendar is full! She's seriously the best decision you could make!

I don't care if you are the most organized person in the world or your venue handles multiple weddings a weekend - Hire Kristen!! Let me back up - I am an EXTREMELY organized person.

I was getting married at a venue that books up more than a year in advance and is used to having multiple weddings each weekend. However, about 3 months before my wedding I started to find myself stressing out about the tiny things I would need to do on the day of. I also started to stress out about having to coordinate across 10+ vendors. My now husband noticed and suggested we look into hiring a wedding coordinator. Hiring Kristen was hands down the best wedding decision we made. Kristen was so organized and was always two steps ahead of me whether it be related to the weather, handling the gifts, or making sure senior guests were taken care of. I would have been so much more stressed out had Kristen not been there. I should also note that Kristen had her assistant Nicole also attend the wedding for an extra set of hands, and she was so great. At one point I had off-handedly mentioned to one of my bridesmaids how I hoped one of the buses had made it. Nicole must have overheard because within 5 minutes she came to me and confirmed the bus had made it and the guests were enjoying themselves pre-ceremony. I really recommend hiring a wedding coordinator and that wedding coordinator being Kristen.
