Kelly was a great
coordinator for my wedding!

She did everything from guest
bags to the rehearsal dinner.
She worked well with all of the
vendors and made my wedding
day smooth and wonderful.
I have worked with Kelly on
many events over the years and
have always been impressed
with her strong work ethic

and hardworking nature. She
is a great coordinator!
