Amazing Wedding Coordinator who Gave Us Our Dream Wedding!Reviewed on 2/03/2014 Kate S
I was planning my wedding from out of state, and did a lot of research on wedding coordinators. After my initial consultation with Weddings with a Twist/Krista, it was an easy decision to choose her as my wedding coordinator! We went with the "Complete Wedding Package," which was worth every penny. Krista is so easy to work with, and really made the planning process so much less stressful (we planned our wedding in less than eight months). Krista attended vendor meetings with me, and helped me find some great vendors, including an amazing florist! We could not have had our dream wedding without Krista's help. The day-of, Krista was the true magic behind how amazing everything turned out. Starting in the morning, Krista helped the reception venue set up the unique details. Then at the ceremony, everything went beautifully thanks to her coordination. After the reception, Krista was EXTREMELY helpful in taking all the decor down/to our bridal suite. She is an incredible, all-around coordinator, whom I now call a friend. All our guests keep saying how it was by far THE best wedding they have ever attended, and Krista was an intricate part of the whole process - from day one, to the Big Day. I've heard this never happens, but our wedding day went PERFECTLY. Not one thing went wrong; it was simply outstanding and really allowed my groom and I to truly enjoy every minute of our wedding day. I would highly recommend Weddings with a Twist to any bride/couple!

Krista did such an awesome job helping out with our wedding September 7th! She was very attentive, organized, professional, and super helpful! Having someone there to help organize at the church and to make sure everything went well at the reception was my main reason for hiring a planner. I had no worries and a stress free day; Krista really made sure everything was perfect! I would highly recommend her!
So glad we had Krista!Reviewed on 9/13/2013 Darci F
I was hesitant about hiring a coordinator as I was much more of a DIY bride and didn't want to dish out any money that we didn't have to. I am SO glad that we got Krista. We had the day of planning package, and it really put my mind at ease to know that she was there behind the scenes. I am an over planner, and there is so much that comes up on a wedding day that you can't plan for! Krista took care of all of those little things, and I was able to enjoy it. :) Highly, highly recommend. She is really easy to work with and goes above and beyond what she is supposed to do.
We used Weddings with a Twist for set-up and take-down of our reception. Krista was great to work with in every aspect from start to finish and her pricing fit within our budget. She was very nice and personable and always responded to my emails within a day. Melanie and Joy took all my notes and photos from my conversation with Krista and set up our reception just like I envisioned. They were also very efficient in getting everything cleaned up and packed in the cars at the end of the night. We highly recommend this company.
My husband and I cannot put into words how grateful we are for Krista and Julia on our wedding day. Our original wedding planner dropped out about a month before our wedding. I was stressed and worried about all the details coming together. I called Krista because she had stellar reviews online, and her pricing was the most reasonable I had seen. She helped to ease my worries over the phone and assured me she could help me out to make my wedding special. When we met in person, I immediately felt comfortable with her and knew she would be such an amazing help with the remainder of the wedding planning process. She felt like an old friend assisting her friend with some last minute details. Our wedding day finally arrived, and if anything went wrong that day, I didn’t know or hear about it. The wedding ran so smoothly, everyone was super happy and my husband and I had a wonderful time. Truly one of the best days of my life. And I owe it all to Krista and Julia. They helped set up the venue space, coordinated with vendors on timing and presentation, and making my day completely stress free. I cannot say enough great things about Krista. She runs an amazing business and I am completely floored with the service and professionalism. I will be recommending Weddings With A Twist to anyone getting married in the milwaukee area!!
Simply put, the details of our our wedding day - both large and small - came into place thanks to Weddings with a Twist. We hired Krista for our wedding day management; she also helped put together a day-of timeline and coordinate with vendors leading up to the wedding, and she facilitated our rehearsal the evening before. Krista provided absolutely invaluable insight into planning our wedding day and indispensable support on the day itself. While I consider myself an organized person, Krista's experience helped fill in the gaps in our own planning and made sure everything came together. Planning a wedding is a very personal and intimate experience - even with a 300 person wedding like our own! Working with Krista felt as comfortable as working with a long-time friend. She worked seamlessly both behind the scenes and as a point of contact for our family, bridal party, guests, and vendors. And most of all, she helped us enjoy the day by giving us peace of mind that the details would all be handled. I'd highly recommend Weddings with a Twist!
Julia and her assistant Sarah made our wedding day flawless! We hired Weddings with a Twist to handle our day-of coordination and couldn't be more thrilled with everything they did! Julia contacted and coordinated with all our other vendors before and on our wedding day. She anticipated all our needs and did everything we asked for plus so much more! She was so professional and sweet all day long and was always smiling. I had a lot of decor with instructions and when we walked into the ballroom for the first time, everything was exactly as I envisioned and it was something I will never forget. When we got back to our room at the end of the night, Julia and Sarah had brought all our flower arrangements back to decorate the room and it was so romantic, thoughtful, and beautiful. Weddings with a Twist is absolutely amazing and we are so glad we got to have them with us on our wedding day!
Krista was a last minute addition to our wedding day. We had elected initially to not have a wedding planner/day of coordinator, but as the day got closer, it became clear we needed some help with bringing the whole day together. Krista jumped in with enthusiasm and professionalism. Leading up to the wedding day, she was always available via phone or email, and was extremely helpful with coordinating duties between the venue, florist, caterer, & band. The day of the wedding she exceeded our expectations in ensuring everything ran smoothly. She was on time and in charge by the time we arrived at the venue. We could tell things were going well, and her pleasant disposition helped relax us. If you have the opportunity to work with Krista, we highly recommend her services.
My husband and I chose to have our reception at the Urban Ecology Center-Riverside....a beautiful, unique, fun venue. Because it is open to the public until 5pm on Saturday we only had 1 hour to decorate/set-up for the reception that started at 6pm. We originally thought we could do all of this ourselves but we are so glad we didn't! Hiring Weddings with a Twist was the best thing we did for the wedding. Krista was incredibly organized, friendly, professional, and great to work with! Everything looked amazing when I arrived at the reception and the entire experience was stress free! I highly recommend hiring them for any event!
Krista was so great to work with and she instantly put us at ease throughout the entire process. We decided after some major wedding planning that we wanted to hire a day of coordinator to ensure everything ran smoothly the day of and so both myself and my husband could enjoy the day without all of the stress of coordinating different vendors. It was probably one of the best decisions we made! Krista is truly amazing at what she does! Everything ran so smoothly and we just can't thank her enough for taking such great care of us. If you are considering hiring a coordinator, whether its for the day of or for a more lengthy partnership, I highly highly recommend hiring Krista. You will not be disappointed!
My husband and I were planning our wedding from a couple hours away, at a venue that did not typically host wedding receptions regularly. I had heard great things about Day of Coordinators, and felt that hiring one would help ease some of my worries about the logistics of planning, set up, and tear down. I was also concerned that we would be busy taking care of issues during our reception rather than sitting back and enjoying it. From the first phone call I had with Krista regarding their DOC services, I was put to ease. She walked me through logistics, and brought up questions or concerns I would have never thought of. A month before the wedding we walked through the space with her and her assistant, Julia, who got a sense for the venue and more logistics. The next couple weeks I knew we were in great hands when Julia made up our itinerary, and reached out to all our vendors to confirm time of pick up/drop off, and their contact info on a call sheet. The week before she was super prompt responding to questions. Day of, Julia set up our decorations and put me at ease knowing that none of our family or friends would need to rush over between ceremony and reception to check anything. She had it all covered flawlessly, and it looked just like I had imagined it! During the reception she checked in with my husband and I about the timeline, if we wanted anything changed, and we truly were able to sit back, take in our reception with all our loved ones, and dance the night away. I couldn't recommend Weddings with a Twist for any of your wedding planning needs more!
My fiance and I opted for the day of coordination package from Weddings With A Twist, and we were so happy that we did! Krista was an absolute joy to work with throughout the entire process. I was on the fence about hiring a day of coordinator and she was able to answer all of my questions. She was very organized, prompt in responding to any emails/phone calls, and really knew the ins and outs of planning a wedding. Throughout the planning process she made sure to ask the important questions, which a lot of times were things I hadn't even thought of. I was planning the wedding mostly on my own since none of my family live near by, and it was extremely valuable to have someone as knowledgeable as Krista to bounce ideas off of. Krista helped me iron out all of the details for the ceremony and reception, and helped connect me with reputable vendors. My wedding day was exactly what I hoped for and ran very smoothly, thanks to Krista and her team. I was not sure we could afford a wedding planner on our budget, but hiring Weddings With A Twist was some of the best money we spent. The piece of mind I had knowing everything would be taken care of by Krista and her team was absolutely priceless. I felt I was really able to "be present" and "in the moment" on my special day. I would highly recommend Weddings With A Twist!
We hired Krista for day-of coordination for our wedding and I don't know what we would have done without her! Her attention to detail is outstanding, and she anticipated our every need. I am fairly "Type-A" and have trouble letting other people do things for me, but Krista made me feel so at ease and every part of the day was perfect! The day after our wedding, I asked my husband (who didn't think we needed a coordinator) what he thought, and he said we couldn't have done it without her, and I agreed 100%! I would highly recommend her to anyone getting married!
Krista exceeded our expectations by a long shot. I was extremely stubborn until about a month before my wedding when I realized that I couldn't do everything myself the day-of. As I frantically searched for a day-of wedding coordinator, Krista assured me that she would be able to make our wedding everything we had ever dreamed it to be, while taking some stress off our shoulders. She came to our rescue. Krista is patient, detailed, and very accommodating. Our ceremony and reception venues looked more perfect than we could have ever imagined. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for some extra help on their wedding day!
Krista was our wedding planner and I could not have been happier! She was an absolute dream to work with and I truly feel she played a major role in our wedding day going so smoothly and perfect. She was extremely attentative, communicative, focused and detailed oriented. She met with me a few times before the wedding and even went to the venue with me to do a walk through. She was always available and easy to reach which put me at ease and understood exactly our vision and what we wanted. I cannot say enough good things about her and would highly recommend her services! She is the absolute sweetest and amazing at her job!
Krista was extremely flexible and an absolute pleasure to work with. We hired her as our day-off coordinator and we couldn't have done it without her!
We hired Krista to be our day of wedding coordinator, and we are so happy we did. Leading up to the wedding, we had two meetings with Krista to discuss details and make sure she knew exactly what we wanted out of our wedding. She also came with us to the last meeting at our wedding venue and helped advocate for us with the venue manager. Finally, she came to our rehearsal at the church the night before the wedding to help make the ceremony ran smoothly. At our reception, we had no major issues that we had to deal with, and everyone had a good time, which we attribute to Krista taking care of everything, so we could enjoy our special day. We definitely recommend her as a day of coordinator and can only imagine how great she could have been if she helped plan the entire wedding!
I cannot say enough great things about Krista! A couple of months out I had a freak out moment, that I had planned everything I could, but how would all my hard work come together? We hired Krista as a Day of Planner. She also guided us perfectly through our rehearsal. We had a friend officiate so this helped tremendously. The day of she was my eyes and ears. I worried about nothing as she managed it all and made sure that all things big and small were happening. Krista spoke to all the vendors and directed them accordingly. She guided the wedding party through out the day, letting the guys / girls know what was happening and when they had to be where. From the photos to ceremony to reception she was there every step of the way. She was in the background setting things up so I didn't have worry about the little details. Once we got to the reception she made sure my husband and I had everything we needed and that the DJ was on course with what had to be done. She collected all valuables we wanted saved and covered things I would have never even thought of! She was truly worth every penny we paid and I would highly recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in the area. Krista is so nice and it really shows that she loves what she does. Krista Thank You So Much for helping us with our special day!
My husband and I STILL talk about how hiring Krista was the best decision (and best money spent) for our wedding. We planned the majority of the wedding on our own, but as our date approached, we quickly realized we needed a day-of coordinator. Krista was so much more than that! Our meetings leading up to the wedding were amazing because she helped me think through certain situations and plan for certain scenarios that I never would have thought of on my own. On our wedding day, Krista took care of setting up ALL of our decorations at the venue, coordinating all of the various vendors and drop offs/deliveries, and most importantly, making sure everything and everyone at the reception was okay! Our reception was at the MKE Historical Society, so we had to hire every vendor separately on our own. Krista managed all of those various contacts and details flawlessly. After hiring Krista and meeting with her, I felt like I could FINALLY relax and get excited for my wedding day, which is exactly what every bride should be able to do. Krista took every stress off my shoulders and made me feel at such ease leading up to the big day. My husband and I appreciated all the little things she did, like staying extra late to help our parents clean everything up and load up their cars with decorations and gifts. Krista made sure that we even got a to-go box of our late night snacks and leftover dinner (because we barely had time to eat.) When my husband and I finally left our reception, Krista was ready and waiting with my change of clothes, purse, spare shoes, food to go, and the photo album from our photo booth. It was like having a mini sendoff! Her assistant Julia was absolutely amazing as well. They made the best team and all of my bridesmaids and family members who interacted with them kept telling me how wonderful they were. I am incredibly grateful for everything Krista did for us and can't rave about her enough. I did quite a bit of research into local wedding planners and met with a few others before hiring Krista. Hands down, she was the absolute best and I am so thankful for her! I feel like there's no way our wedding could've possibly gone as smoothly as it did without her help. My only regret is that I didn't hire Krista earlier in my planning process because she was so FUN and easy to work with!
Krista Dentice was given a particularly difficult challenge with our wedding. I was not familiar with Milwaukee and I was going to be overseas the entire year leading up to our wedding. Without hesitation I recommend Krista to anyone who is considering a wedding planner. From my very first inquiry into utilizing her services to the day of the wedding she was responsive, pleasant, professional, and informative. Whether I wanted a lot of information on a vendor or a general opinion on what would be best for the wedding, Krista quickly figured out my personality and how to best direct me to a decision which would be best for my wife and I. She is only able to do that because she cares and gives personal service in a way which makes a person feel like you are the only person she is planning a wedding for. I reached out to Krista approximately 10 months prior to the date of the wedding, we must have exchanged at least 500 emails (as I was overseas and time zones didn't always allow telephone conversations) and I can not remember ever waiting a day for a response from her! THAT is responsiveness I would never have expected. I was only able to return to the States for one weekend prior to the wedding, Krista arranged all of the vendor meetings in that short 3-day span, she attended every vendor appointment and made sure I understood my options and never pressured me to do something I wasn't ready to commit to. On the day of the day of the wedding, when you walk into your reception venue and everything is set up and ready to go...that is when you come to realize how invaluable Krista is to your wedding day. Everyone warns you not to stress on your wedding day and just "enjoy it." Krista makes sure that will be the case with your special day!
Krista was incredible! Each part of our big day went off without a hitch thanks to Weddings with a Twist. If you want a worry-free wedding day, go with them! They are also super super affordable. We couldn't have pulled it off without their work!
Krista's bubbly personality mixed with her uber organized approach is what every bride needs on her wedding day. She took it upon herself to go above and beyond for my big day, making an hour by hour itinerary, confirming vendors, and so much more. I would highly recommend her services!
Krista is just absolutely amazing. Words can't even describe everything and how blessed we were to have her in our lives and the wedding process. She made sure everything was perfect and did her best to keep us calm. She has the biggest heart and made our day perfect. Hands down she is the best!!
I would HIGHLY recommend Krista from Weddings With A Twist for your special day! I was excited to start my wedding planning process but found out quickly that it can become stressful. Krista went above and beyond to make my day exactly how I envisioned it! She is professional, organized, detail oriented, hard working but most of all very sweet. She made wedding planning a breeze and made the wedding day run smoothly, I literally did not have to worry about anything! If you need a wedding planner or even just a day of coordinator I gaurantee that you won't be disappointed!
Krista and Julia were a pleasure to work with. I was very clueless when it came to planning my wedding, so it was a relief having Krista to guide me through the process and make it a little less stressful. She gave me a lot of useful tips and suggestions, helped me find vendors, helped create a budget, and also helped me with the timeline. What I found most helpful was towards the end of the planning right before the wedding, Krista acted as a go-between with my vendors and confirmed that everything was set and thought about all the last minute details - it really helped relieve a lot of my stress and made me feel more organized. On the day of the wedding, Julia took care of everything and I honestly felt like I could just relax and enjoy my wedding. They were both very nice, informative, and easy to work with. I am very happy with my decision to use Weddings with a Twist!
