I can't not say enough about the services I was provided with through Denouement Weddings. Most brides think they got everything under control on their wedding day- Well you may think until you actually have a coordinator and you realize that you had nothing under control. Kate made my special day easy and worry-free. I had the perfect wedding and would recommend Denouement Weddings for yours. You will not regret and will be able to truly enjoy your special day.

No words can describe the amazing service Kate provided us for my Son's recent wedding. Her eye for detail and her desire for perfection is what sets her apart. I trusted her fully to execute all my requests in order to make this event as perfect and magical as it could possible be and believe it was!!! I could not have done it without Kate's services. Thanks again Kate for such an Amazing Job!!!

Kate was a godsend for our wedding in June 2014. We were referred to her through friends, an initially thought we didn't need to hire someone to coordinate or plan our wedding. It was one way we were saving money, by eliminating that expense. But after our first meeting it was clear that her service was essential, and Kate was the perfect person. She asked us many questions in our meetings that we had never thought of - what are you going to do with the flowers at the end of the night? Where do you want the guestbook to go? How will you get your personal flowers? Who will put up the backdrop? - things that needed to be handled, and couldn't be handled by us on the day of. I, perhaps naively, had never realized that we can't be the point of contact the day of because we will be out taking photos, getting ready, etc. She walked us through step by step and even made our wedding timeline for us. Her advice was invaluable, her professionalism always on point, and she did that all with kindness and a genuine concern for the success of our big day.
On our wedding day, it was projected to rain right during our ceremony. We wanted to wait it out as long as possible even though the venue was pushing for us to move inside. She respected our wishes, but also prepared the wedding party and event staff with a rain plan. Sure enough, I walked down the aisle to thunder and lightening, and 10 minutes into the ceremony it began to rain. She, along with our catering manager, facilitated the fastest and smoothest move inside the venue I have ever seen. It was truly amazing - we went from an outdoor wedding to indoor in four minutes flat. When we had a question or request during the reception, she was always nearby and always took care of the issue right away. She made herself known to family and friends as well, and I am sure it prevented many people from coming to my husband and I with issues that would have only stressed us out. Kate was the last person to leave the venue at the end of the night, and it was a big relief to not have to ask a family member to stay and collect memorabilia, vases, gifts, etc. I could not give a bigger recommendation for Kate's services - especially if you haven't thought about the many details throughout the day that need to be taken care of!

I flirted with the idea of hiring a wedding planner for months but I just couldn’t quite justify the money with all of the other (unending!) wedding costs. Luckily I came to my senses and was fortunate enough to find Kate, who literally executed all of my “day of planning” to perfection! In fact, I laugh now when I imagine trying to coordinate all of the last minute details by myself. From the beginning, she reviewed all of my ideas (timeline/floor plans/seating chart) and made suggestions within minutes on important/amazing ideas that hadn’t even crossed my mind. She ran last minute errands (picking up chalkboards on the morning of, transported 200+ cupcakes to our venue, organizing/dealing with vendors) while still keeping all of my crazy friends in line- and assuring that we stayed on schedule. I specifically remember arriving at the venue early and noticing that our gift table (set up by the venue) looked ridiculous. Before I even had a chance to say anything, Kate had swooped in and somehow made it look fabulous. THIS is the attention to detail you want in a wedding planner. She literally took all of my stress away on the day of- I didn’t have to worry about a thing! Without hesitation, I can say that my wedding day would not have gone as smoothly as it did without Kate!
