Could not have done it without MOD Events!Reviewed on 4/23/2014 Marina K
Working with Kala from MOD Events was absolutely great. We definitely couldn't have made our wedding day as beautiful as it was without her help. Kala's knowledge of the Charleston area wedding vendors helped us stay on budget while still getting great service. She helped us make decisions when we were stuck on something which was exactly what we needed. Most importantly she was honest and realistic with every step - choosing a venue, caterer, rentals, flowers, etc - while still remembering all the details that were important to us. MOD Events also did all of our flowers which turned out better than I ever imagined! Working with her was such a pleasure and we are blessed to call her a friend. I would recommend her to any bride who needs someone reliable and knowledgeable about planning a wedding in the Lowcountry!
The Groom's PerspectiveReviewed on 4/30/2014 Ben s
MOD Events, and Kala in particular, were amazing to work with. For some reason I will never know my wife gave me actual things to plan for the big day instead of wanting to do everything herself. With Kala's help everything got done and went smoothly. We were mostly paying for everything ourselves and had a very tight budget and Kala helped us stay on budget while still getting the most for our money. She had a wonderful repertoire of caterers, venues, rental companies, etc and really helped us walk the line between what we wanted and what was actually feasible without being pushy, overbearing, or upselling. She was able to make suggestions that we would not have thought of and if she ever had a different idea that she thought would work better would suggest it but not force it. On top of the pre-wedding stuff, she also helped coordinate the day-of things, such as making sure all the vendors knew where to go and where to set-up, helping arrange everything to be just right, and more. She went above and beyond our wildest expectations. Hopefully I will never have to use her services again for wedding planning, but if I ever have to plan a large-scale event I will definitely be using MOD Events. Well worth the investment into ease of mind and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to tie the knot.
MOD EVENTS = MAGICALReviewed on 3/27/2014 Cary S
Kala was amazing from the first meeting until we were whisked away after the wedding. She was always available, and just "got" me. I couldn't have dreamed of a better planner...from catering and bar referrals, decor (ideas and the use of some of her own things) and scheduling of the big day with ALL of those people, she was just on top. (There are also 1001 things a planner does that isn't seen by the masses, which she obviously kicked butt at) Top notch...I will recommend her to my friends and family for sure.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Kala. Everyone looked at me like I was crazy when I told them I was not stressed in the month, weeks, and days leading up to the wedding. But Kala made everything so easy and fun, that myself and my (now) husband didn't have room to be stressed. I was blown away by how gorgeous our venue and ceremony site had been decorated by Kala and her team. She took our vision and turned it into a reality. Not to mention she delivered some pretty gorgeous weather for us! Kala was an absolute godsend the day of our wedding. She herded all of the cats and made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. But the biggest thing is how dedicated Kala is to making sure our wedding day was perfect for US. Constantly asking if we are having fun, always having a fresh drink in our hands, and making sure we eat (we actually got full on our wedding day!). I can't recommend her enough or say enough wonderful things about Kala and her staff.
My husband and I are from NYC and needed someone local to help with our wedding planning. Kala was great. She was mindful of our budget and very helpful with suggestions. On the day of, everything went smoothly and she and her assistant took care of all the little details. I did not have to worry about a thing! She also had experience with Chinese traditions, so was able to help us work in the tea ceremony in a way that all our guests could experience it. Thank you Kala for all your hard work and for helping us make our wedding day so wonderful!
We loved Kala so much! I was a very alternative bride and she created a plan for us that blended our unique style as a couple and also kept with tradition. On wedding day she kept all 20 of our wedding party in line and made sure the day went seamlessly. I loved working with her and she is just a genuinely lovely person to be around. Highly, highly recommend her! We know so many couples that didn’t like their wedding planners and I can not imagine how the day would have gone without Kala’s help. It’s SO important to trust your plan and Kala is just perfect.
From the first time I spoke with Kala, I felt like I was talking to a friend. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I had previously lived in Charleston, but I was planning from out of state. We were only able to visit Charleston one time before our wedding, and Kala made every second worthwhile. She had a schedule for our short 2 day trip and we were able to accomplish so many things. Kala knows the other vendors in the area well and gave us great recommendations as well as preferred customer discounts. She was always responsive to communication and very professional. Even though I could not be there to see things, I knew I could trust Kala's advice and taste. Kara was our day of planner since Kala already had another wedding booked on our day, and Kara was just as attentive and professional. Our wedding was more beautiful and organized than we could have possibly imagined. Thank you, MOD events, for making our day truly unforgettable.
Kala, I cannot thank you enough for helping Joe and I have the most perfect day ever. It went flawlessly, and I know that’s in huge part to you. To anyone looking for a wedding planner congrats you just found yours. Kala is the funniest, kindest, most organized person ever. I cannot thank you enough for putting up with me for almost two years. Our wedding looked so beautiful and she made me the most beautiful flowers. Five stars is not enough for how wonderful of a wedding planner you are. Love you to pieces and thank you thank thank you for everything!!
I cannot express enough how wonderful MOD Events is! Kala and her team are miracle workers and our wedding was perfect in every way. Kala handled all of our flowers, centerpieces, decor, coordination, and more details than I probably even know about - everything was perfect and exactly what we had in mind. We never could have pulled off our wedding without her and would hire MOD again a million times over!!! THANK YOU!
I don't think my wedding day would have gone as well without Kala. From the first phone call to the sendoff on our wedding day Kala was fantastic throughout my whole wedding planning process! She is so accommodating, she took my visions and made them a reality. She helped me pick my vendors, who were all great! She even handled contracts and my last minute changes with vendors in the last few weeks heading up to the wedding day, which is a huge relief for a bride :)! Not only did she help with my planning and organization but she did my flowers as well. I couldn't believe how beautiful the flowers came out either, they were talked about all night! Our wedding day was amazing and I owe it all to her hard work. I was amazed by her and her team during the actual wedding as well. They made sure we were comfortable, happy, fed and a drink in our hand. My family and friends are still talking about how great she was. She's such a sweet heart and you will not be disappointed if you hire her. I would highly recommend her for your special day!
Kala was amazing! She was super helpful, resourceful and organized. I loved everything she did to help make my wedding amazing.
Working with Kala from Mod Event's was the best decision I ever mad! I was incredible nervous during the whole planning process not knowing what to expect obviously! She assured me there was nothing to worry about and everything was going to be great! I can't tell you the feeling I felt walking into the ball room of my wedding Venue. Everything was picture perfect! It turned out even better then I had ever imagined. She also was so helpful with suggesting local vendors for different things who all ended up being great choices! She kept the entire day on track & even made it a point to have my husband & myself's glass filled all night! Thank you so much, I would highly suggest Kala to any future brides!!
Kala was a DREAM to work with for our florals. After stalking her Instagram and falling in love with her amazing floral designs, I knew she had to be the one to help create our bouquets and centerpieces for our wedding at the Legare Waring House. Her designs were the perfect mix of subtle and beautiful, combining the beauty of the venue with her pieces. She was great at accommodating my changing (often frequent) requests before the big day, and even created the cutest mickey mouse head for one of my flower girls to carry. Not only does Kala have an eye for floral design, but her personality is so wonderful and contagious! She truly cares about her clients. I would recommend Kala as an addition to any wedding, in any form. She truly is amazing!
We cannot express enough gratitude for MOD Events. Their abilities seem limitless, and their reputation is well-deserved. MOD Events provided planning and event coordination services for our wedding in November 2016. Our day was beyond awesome and MOD Events was one of the biggest reasons. Kala is a VERY talented and dedicated individual heading up a capable team. She was flexible meeting in advance, listened closely, and lent us invaluable advice along the way. We were guided through difficult choices, kept on schedule and within budget. Between Kala's relationships within the industry and keen eye for aesthetics (our venue details and decor were STUNNING thanks to her), we were so fortunate to have her help. On the day of, MOD Events' staff worked tirelessly. We had a considerable snafu beyond our control on wedding weekend - we were bailed out big time by Kala! MOD Events' personal guidance and consummate professionalism were only a few things we noticed that day (nevermind everything which went unseen!). Our guests had a blast and haven't stopped raving about the fun that day! We are forever thankful and enthusiastically encourage others to enlist the services of MOD Events! Thanks, Kala!
Kala was an awesome wedding planner from start to finish! I was worried about trying to plan a wedding in SC while living in KY, but she kept everything on track and helped us stay on budget. Everything on the day of the wedding was exactly as I'd imagined it. I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in the Charleston area.
AMAZING!! Kala was so wonderful to work with. She was so helpful with vendors and not only was she great with helping me who to pick but she also does her own flowers, so we didn't have to hire a florist. Our flowers and decorations were absolutely stunning. Kala and her staff did such a wonderful job. I honestly couldn't have pictured a better wedding than what we had. Everything was just perfect. We LOVED working with Kala, she is super friendly, always up beat, informative, and was there to listen! We are so happy we chose MOD Events to help with our wedding and we would choose them again and again and again! Cannot say enough good things about Kala and her staff!! Thank you for making our day everything we ever dreamed of!!!
Kala is absolutely amazing! From the very first interview until the moment we exited our reception, she was enthusiastic and professional. She made every aspect of planning enjoyable and stress-free. Kala created the most beautiful bouquets and floral arrangements--everyone complimented them. Her attention to detail and passion for design transformed our reception hall into the most magical and memorable scene. On the day of I had absolutely no worries and was so relaxed because I knew that everything was in great hands. I can't recommend Kala with MOD Events enough!!
From the first moment I met Kala, I knew I was in good hands. I was extremely uneasy about planning a wedding from afar (Chicago!), but Kala kept me up to date on everything and met with me every time I came to town, even when it was on a moment's notice. Her team worked extremely hard to ensure every detail of my wedding day was perfect and exactly how I wanted it to be. I didn't have much "vision" in terms of decor, which worked out perfectly because Kala has a serious artistic eye and was able to execute what I had in mind flawlessly. I would definitely recommend her to anyone getting married in the Charleston area!
Kala and Kara are amazing! Kala helped me plan my wedding from day 1, every detail was considered and talked about. I did not worry about a single thing on my wedding day thanks to Kara, she was always one step ahead of me. It was so relaxing to be able to just focus on enjoying the day. The best choice in wedding planners!!!
We loved working with Kala and Kara from MOD! From the beginning I was able to relax and let them take over on all of the big plans. I was thrilled with the beautiful flowers they created and how seamless our day was. Kala even helped me find the sequined cake table linen I had been coveting from day one. My entire day was beautiful and I couldn't have done it without them!
Kala from MOD Events is fantastic, and she really brought our vision to life. As we were planning our wedding from overseas, we really just wanted someone who could recommend great vendors and help the day run smoothly. Kala has FANTASTIC connections and all of the vendors she suggested were brilliant. She doesn't have a set limit as to the number of weddings she takes on, so she does have busy periods were communications are a little slower. But don't let this deter you. She really is on top of everything and gives her all to your wedding. Kala is a joy to work with during the process, and we'd hire her again in a heartbeat.
Best planner ever! I was a on a tight budget and MOD was able to save me so much money. Kala and I discussed my vision, I showed her my insane amount of Pinterest photos, and she made it exactly how I wanted it. We were able to use a ton of décor from MOD and they did all of our flowers, which saved me hundreds of $$$, and my bouquets were amazing. AMAZING! I'll admit, I was nervous about hiring a planner on my budget- but it turns out I just needed to hire the right planner. They had amazing ideas to save me money and helped me find vendors who fit my budget. Best money I spent during the whole process was hiring MOD!
Kala and her team made my life so much easier. When we first met she immediately started helping me make decisions. My husband and I live in California so we were anxious about the wedding, but Kala kept us on track the whole way. She was in constant communication and really understood my vision. We loved the flowers she created and couldn't have done it without her. Thank you MOD for helping me create my dream wedding from so far away.
After reading all the positive reviews, I was very disappointed. I paid for the full wedding coordination and even spoke on the phone beforehand. I live out of state and the expectation was that she would just give me options and ask for my opinion, which sounded great to me because of my busy schedule. After I paid the first deposit, she disappeared for 2 months. I should have known then. I actually had to hire a second coordinator just to get everything started. Even then, it took on average 3-4 days to get replies back to emails, emails where we tried to arrange a phone meeting went unanswered, and when my in-laws tried to ask for help they were not pleasant. The other coordinator and I had to double-check all the information with vendors too because we couldn’t trust her to keep track of them. I would recommend her for the flowers and Day of Coordination though. The arrangements were beautiful. For the wedding planning, I felt she was unresponsive, unprofessional, and I honestly felt robbed of thousands of dollars.
Kala and her team were the best! She helped me plan my Charleston wedding while I live in Rochester, NY. Every single vendor she recommended was spot on! Everything came together the day of the wedding perfectly. She was such a great help for the entire process - from the first steps of planning, to keeping me on track with securing vendors. But the work of her and her team on the day of was what made everything 100% worth it! I gave her pictures of ideas that I liked and she took it and made our reception absolutely beautiful! There was zero stress for us on our wedding day, and we owe that to Kala's amazing work. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation!
