KJ & Co.
We hired Krista from KJ and Co to set up our wedding reception since it had to be set up during the ceremony. Not only did she give us some great pointers during our initial consultations, she did an excellent job with an eye for design, instead of just placement, and everything looked absolutely beautiful when we arrived.
Words cannot begin to describe how helpful Krista was with our wedding. She is a wealth of knowledge on everything wedding and helped with every detail of planning our wedding. She is keen, professional, detail oriented and went the extra mile for us. She made the wedding planning process fun and stress free! She always made sure I was on track with ideas and she turned our vision into our perfect day! I can say with certainty that our big day would not have gone as smoothly without her. She made sure everything was taken care of and gave us such peace of mind. Its been over a year since my husband and I got married and we still talk about how amazing Krista was. We wouldnt have survived wedding planning without her!
When we started wedding planning we knew we wanted a venue a little different, so we booked at a brewery which meant we wouldn't have access to an onsite coordinator. We toyed with the idea of trying to do it ourselves, but I knew I wanted no stress the day of. Krista was recommended by the venue so we booked a meeting with her as well as a few other coordinators. She was our first meeting and after talking to her I cancelled my other meetings and booked her instantly. Due to our budget restraints, we could only afford her for the month of coordination and she was probably our best investment. She sent several spreadsheets (including a budget that she set up for us). Even though we only did the month of, she was available to answer questions and give advice ongoing. Her responses were prompt (even though she's a mother of two small children - I don't know how she does it!). And when it came down to the month of, she coordinated with all my vendors I booked (including table & chair rentals). This allowed me to focus on other details I needed to worry about. Booking her allowed me peace of mind leading up to and including the day of. My day went off without a hitch and I dont think that would have been the case without Krista. I would recommend her 100% and I know a few of my bridesmaids have already said they would use her when they get married even with the small exposure they had!
Before we hired Krista for month of coordination, we were both so stressed out and all over the place about the whole process. With being in the wedding industry ourselves, we had a full plate of taking care of our clients' wedding details. Krista gave us the confidence, reassurance and experience we needed and streamlined the whole process. She also brought things to our attention that we probably would have missed. Krista was flexible and made it easy to communicate and stay on track with helpful google sheets, check in meetings and messages. We would 10000% recommend having a wedding planner, especially Krista. Having a wedding planner and day of coordinator took away any stress for the day of knowing that someone was our main point of contact making sure everything went smoothly. She took care of hiccups that we didn't even realize - like getting the venue to switch out to a larger table to accommodate for a surprise guest that decided to show up. We also had a code phrase that was helpful and used at one point when something didn't go as planned. Overall, our experience with KJ & Co was amazing and everything turned out better then we ever expected it to. Thank you so much Krista & Hillary for bossing us around and making our special day beyond perfect. xo Ashley + Tayne
KJ and Co. provided design and coordination services for our fall 2015 wedding. Krista's design proposal was so helpful - after meeting with us to learn about our vision, she was easily able to take all our inspiration and ideas, infuse her own personal touches and help us to end up with a beautiful and cohesive design. It was beyond what we could've hoped for! Krista's vendor recommendations were excellent and her plans made communicating our look to others so much easier. Her own collection of rentals and suggestions on where to purchase other items made all the small touches easy.Krista is very organized. Her planning spreadsheets keep everything in order, and she helped keep us on track throughout the planning process with regular reminders on outstanding tasks and vendor suggestions. Krista was always very quick to respond to questions via text, email or phone. She was great at listening to our suggestions, and either finding a way to make it work taking into consideration our space, budget and priorities, but also letting us know when something was unrealistic. The best part of working with Krista was that on our big day, we could just relax and know everything was in great hands with someone who knew the plans better than we did. Thanks to KJ and Co., we had an absolute blast and didn't worry about a thing.
