"Kenna is the wedding planner that you NEED for your wedding day. She is incredibly fun, extremely organized and makes you feel like your wedding is the only one she focused on. She was always extremely easy to get a hold of, very helpful with recommending vendors and made our wedding day absolutely perfect. Our big day was absolute perfection and I know that’s because she was making everything happen behind the scenes and keeping everything on track.
Thank you Kenna for being the angel we needed on our wedding day, I want to do it all over again just to work with you again!!"
"WORTH EVERY PENNY! I was on the fence about hiring a day-of coordinator, but holy cow, I have no idea how I would have survived my wedding without Kenna! She was on top of everything, even months before my wedding. She came with me to meetings with my venue, coordinated my rehearsal, and took care of literally EVERYTHING the day of my wedding. From setting up my décor to making sure my dress was ready to walk down the aisle, and even making sure I always had water or a drink if I wanted it. Kenna was an absolute savior and I can't recommend her enough!!"
"As a groom, my biggest wish was for my amazing bride to have a stress free wedding day. That dream came true because of Kenna!! From pre planning meetings, to constant communication, she made sure our wedding vision was constantly on track. When it came to the day of, my wife was very specific about how she envisioned the venue. Kenna met and exceeded those expectations! From having our helpers organized and on task setting up the venue, to making sure every rose was in place, Kenna made the venue of our dreams even more beautiful than we imagined! I could go on and on about how smoothly everything went, but the best part of her service is the true love she has for her job. We knew from day one our wedding day was going to be perfect because Kenna truly cared about it being perfect. She had creative ideas to add that “extra touch” that would be unique to our personalities and that is because she has the experience of running so many weddings. For how important of a day it is, having Kenna as your wedding planner, is without a doubt THE best thing you will spend a portion of your wedding budget on! We are constantly asked wedding advice from friends, and secrets to throwing a wedding....using Kenna is without a doubt our biggest recommendation! Thank you Kenna for giving us our perfect wedding day."
"***HIGHLY RECOMMEND***
McKenna, “Kenna” was absolutely AMAZING to work with. From day one, she was immediate about getting a meeting set up, and her warm and friendly welcoming put my mind at ease. We presented Kenna with quite a few challenges mainly having to move our venue with very short notice. Without hesitation, she stepped in with suggestions, support, and a game plan to move forward. I can not thank her enough for being so awesome and professional. We chose Arizona as a destination wedding location, and needed a lot of help when it came to Vendors, style, and an overall vision. From Hair & Makeup, Florist, DJ, and Décor we needed direction on IT ALL. Kenna guided guiding us to the perfect vendors that matched our style and personality. Our “dream team” as I like to call them, are highly desired in their field and collaborated to flawlessly deliver a stunning, seamless day. Kenna went above and beyond to make our day special not only for the groom and myself, but for our families as well. She is a true gem!"
"Kenna is literally a godsend. I can not say enough great things about her. She is professional, responsive, and well equipped with anything you need. Her initial call was thorough and she laid out everything to expect. She actually ended up exceeding all expectations. She went above and beyond to ensure there was no stress and that everything went smoothly for me. She even had a hot glue gun in the middle of the desert to help glue my hair piece that broke during my cocktail hour. Talk about being prepared for anything. I can't thank Kenna enough -- she truly made my wedding. I highly recommend her!"
"Cannot say enough great things about Kenna and the job she did. I have known McKenna forever and she always puts everything she has into everything she does! My wedding day was seriously everything I have ever dreamed of and more, she executed my dream wedding perfectly, made the whole wedding planning process a breeze, and was the most attentive and on top of it day of coordinator as well! She is organized, has big creative ideas, and is so on top of all the vendors and millions of pieces that go with a wedding! I had not one single thing go wrong or one ounce of stress with my wedding because of this girl! She handed me tissues every time I cried, held up my train, bossed people around if needed, and even fixed a bridesmaids broken strap seconds before walking down the aisle! She is the woman to work with I promise you. Thank you for making my wedding the best day of my life Kenna!"
"Kenna completely exceeded my husband and my expectations. She handled any curveballs thrown at her with grace and made sure my husband and I were happy and taken care of our entire wedding day. She even helped my sister in law fix her jumpsuit because it ripped right before the ceremony! We couldn’t have imagined our day without her and are so grateful to have found Kenna. Professional, truly great at her job, and just a person you want to be around. Thank you Kenna! You’re amazing!"
"If you're looking for a detailed, organized & amazing wedding planner, look no further! Kenna and her team are incredible at what they do. Throughout the entire planning process, Kenna made herself available to me, provided me with her expert opinions and helped in any way she could. Above all, I didn't worry about a thing on wedding day, which is what every bride wants! Day of was perfectly executed and all of my expectations were exceeded. Thank you Kenna & Sarah, y'all rock!"
"Words can’t describe how perfect Kenna made my wedding day! If you think you don’t need a wedding planner, think again. Kenna is SO amazing and I’m so incredibly lucky to have had her help! She made the reception 100x better than I pictured it and ran everything so smooth. If you need a wedding planner, pick Kenna! Not only does she do an amazing job, but she has the warmest heart and is so friendly and professional in every way!"
