We couldn't not have done this without Karen! My wife and I live in New York City but we got married in Southern California near my wife's hometown - which made it particularly tricky to navigate everything from coordination between vendors/venue, scouting the location, and to make all the other necessary preparations for our big day. To begin with, neither my wife nor I are very good at planning in general. But Karen really took the rains and helped us with everything we needed to do before the wedding in the planning phase as well as being a huge help and source of comfort on the day of the wedding as we both felt that we didn't need to focus on the details of the wedding itself and instead just focus on tripping when we walked down the aisle.

Karen and Stephanie were fantastic. Their team was able to take my very basic (and uninspired) vision and turn it into something beyond my greatest expectations. Not only did they create a beautiful setting on the day, but they walked me through the whole process from beginning to end, ensuring no detail was overlooked. Their attention to detail and calm manner was the perfect counterbalance to what can easily become a very overwhelming time.
I cannot recommend them enough! 


Karen and her team made our wedding day perfect! To hire Karen as my wedding coordinator was by far one of the best decisions I made. She gave me timelines and also coordinated the timelines with all the vendors so that the day ran smooth and I didn't have to worry about a thing. She set up all the tables beautifully and made sure everything and everyone was in the right places. All her recommendations throughout the planning process helped make our day perfect. The communication, professionalism, and overall expertise that Karen and her team have, makes them by far the best wedding coordinator/event planning company there is. I would give her over 5 stars if I could. A wedding day is a once in a lifetime event that every bride wants to be perfect. Because of Karen I can say my wedding day was absolutely perfect! 


"Karen!!  Thank you so much for everything this weekend!!  Your planning skills were amazing and everything was perfect!  Our vision came alive.  We appreciate you so much!  Much love Karen!  Karen was so wonderful to work with!  Her and her team were absolutely amazing!  She was so helpful and really took the time to make sure each detail was thought out and planned.  The extra touches she brought to our wedding made it so special and we couldn't have asked for anything more :)  Her assistant, Alexis, even took extra special care of our flower girl doggie!  All are in GREAT hands with Karen and her ladies!!"

"Karen, I seriously cannot thank you enough for all of your help with our wedding! I honestly don't think we could have pulled it together without you!  Max and I had an amazing stress free day (thanks to you and your team!) and would not have changed a single thing about it! Thank you, again"


"Karen of Karen Marie Events is not only the coordinator you want, but the coordinator you need! Karen's creativity is out of this world. She perfects every little detail and always goes the extra mile to make sure everything is just right. Not only is Karen extremely innovative and always on top of her game, she is also the sweetest woman in the world. You always feel right at home working with Karen, knowing that everything is going to be taken care of on your big day, without a hitch. Trust me, do yourself a favor and contact Karen Marie Events! She is amazing!!!!"  


"The wedding Karen planned that I attended was outstanding - the night was magical and not one detail was left out. Everything she did was unique and made the event site one of a kind. The seating chart, the dessert table , the centerpieces and I could go on. Amazing!! I also attended the bridal shower and I was so impressed I had her plan one for me that I gave for a friend . I give many parties a year but the shower she planned for me was definitely the most unique. Karen's ideas and the implementation of them had everyone talking.  Karen is extremely organized and creative and it certainly was demonstrated in the 3 of her events I either attended or hosted."


"Karen Marie Events went over and beyond! The bride and myself (the maid of honor) had an amazing time and everything was flawless. Everything was perfect from the custom mason jar party favors, to the window pane table assignments, to the mariachi band. I can't wait for my special day as a bride! I just booked her for my own wedding!"


"Karen is an outstanding wedding planner. She did my daughter Natalie's wedding and we were awed by her level of organization and care in making the day run smoothly. I absolutely recommend Karen for your wedding planning needs".


"Karen Marie Events planned a wedding at McCormick Home Ranch.  She is a great woman and knows how to put together a beautiful wedding without missing a detail! If you are planning something special Karen is definitely the lady to work with!"


"Such a talented professional!! Creative, insightful and so caring!  Couldn't ask for more as she gives her all!


"Karen was very attentive and flexible. I hired her for my Mom's 65th Surprise Birthday party and she transformed the room to a 50's style diner. I enjoyed working with her and her team. She knew the venue well and because of her affiliation with the venue we received little perks allowing us into the room earlier than contracted. Great customer service and a great delivery of ideas even though we were long distance!"
