I can't say enough about Kristin and her ability to make your dream wedding come true or in this case my daughter's. From the first day that I met her, I knew she was the one that I could trust to get the job done. She literally thinks of everything and makes the planning process seamless. Her connections and recommendations of vendors is outstanding. Her professionalism, creativity and attention to detail are incredible . Seriously, I've worked with other wedding planners for past family weddings and I have to say that hands down my experience with Kristin was the best.
Kemph Wedding 2019
If you are a Mother of the Bride, please read this! My two daughters were married within 17 months of each other. We decided to hire a wedding planner since we were a little overwhelmed with the timing. In the process, I learned 3 important things that MOB’s need to consider when hiring a wedding planner. 1. Do you trust the planner to make the best decisions for your daughter’s wedding? 2. What types of relationships to they have with vendors? 3. Are they on board with the couple’s vision/budget for the wedding? Kristin Ashley Events knocked it out of the park on each of the points. Every wedding will have its issues. Kristin was on top of every concern and either handled them or suggested remedies when needed. I can’t say enough about her experience in wedding planning. She’s seen and done it all. Kristin works with the top vendors in the Saint Louis area as well as other destinations. They respect and trust her experience in wedding planning. Your vendors working together as a team is so important. Kristin made sure our daughters’ wedding visions were a reality. Each wedding was distinctive. The St. Louis wedding was the best of St. Louis, and Kristin suggested lots of cool things to make a unique experience for our guests. Our destination wedding in Florida was a different challenge in that we didn’t know the vendors. She helped us select the vendors and worked side by side with the resort wedding team. The best testimonial I can give Kristin comes from our guests when they said things like “I won’t ever forget this wedding. It was the best!” Those words were music to my ears. Home base or destination wedding…. I love Kristin Ashley Events. I may adopt another daughter, so that I can work with Kristin and her team again!
Marhefka Wedding 2019
St. Louis Fall Wedding
Words cannot express how wonderful Kristin and her team are and I am so fortunate to have selected her as my planner! From start to finish, she was incredibly professional and attentive. Her responsiveness was nearly immediate on every question or task, making it a breeze to plan a wedding with a busy work schedule. I always knew what I needed to accomplish, she scheduled meetings and met with me every step of the way. Her designs took the image out of my head and made them a reality, I actually cried when I saw our reception for the first time. The vendors she recommended were top knotch, she truely went above and beyond to make our day memorable. Kristin is warm and very down to earth, her calm presence let me relax and enjoy the day knowing that I could trust her to execute everything flawlessly. I only wish I had another wedding to plan so that I could continue working with her!
The Michael's 2017
St. Louis Spring Wedding
Kristin is a visionary!! Leading up to the wedding, and still today, my husband and I agree, there would not have been a wedding without Kristin! You see, I am not the typical girl who has had my wedding planned since I was 6, I also lived out of town and have zero sense of "design" so I needed someone who was going to essentially plan and care for this wedding as though it was their own; K did exactly that! I felt as though I was her only bride (even though I knew I was not), she understood our style, made every decision so easy for us and worked within our budget. Two days before our wedding, we had to go from plan A and B to Y and Z due to historic rainfall in the area. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing she was during the process, I literally did not do a single thing other than get a tent permit…because of her attention to detail and “care factor” no one knew that the wedding was originally planned to be outside; the tent looked beautiful and our guests were dry! Hiring K was the BEST.DECISION.EVER! (aside from marrying my hubs). She and her team are amazing, the night exceeded our wildest imaginations and the best part is I have a new lifelong best friend!
The Goette's 2017
St. Louis Summer Wedding
Kristin is excellent! We were so lucky to have worked with her. She has great relationships with the vendors in town. She also has great and unique design ideas. In addition, our day ran smoothly thanks to her! Our ceremony was to take place outside, and a nasty storm rolled through, but she was able to coordinate with everyone and get things moved and dried off so the ceremony could still take place outside. And most of all, kept me (the bride) unaware and stress free! Our wedding was beautiful and everything ran smoothly in large part thanks to Kristin.
The Pope's 2018
We hired Kristin Ashley Events for a Full Planning / Destination wedding in the Florida Keys. We now know it was the best decision we ever made! She "really listened to our thoughts and ideas!" Our favorite phrase she used was "I got it!" Her experience, top-notch contacts, and follow through were amazing. Her innovative ideas put the wedding over the top!She was cost conscious when needed to be but still managed to impress. She had creative ideas for the Welcome Bags, watched over our Welcome Party, and The Day Of was spectacular and just plain fun for us! Jessie made sure everyone was where they needed to be and on schedule. (Big job) All the wonderful memories were "stress free!" Kristin's vision far exceeded our expectations!
The Sutton's 2019
Washington Missouri Summer Wedding
Kristin knocked it out of the park! Our wedding was absolutely perfect down to every detail thanks to Kristin & her amazing team...and we did it in 6 months & out of state! From day one, Kristin was there to answer every call, text, & email right away ( and there were a lot!). Vendors she recommended were fabulous and exceeded my expectations. When it came to the design of the reception, I am pretty sure she knew what I wanted before I did! All I had to do is show her a few pictures and she made it happen...and WOW it was beautiful. Kristin also was very respectful of staying within budget and knew where and when to cut corners and what to splurge on. She knows her stuff that is for sure! Best decision we made is hiring Kristin!
Charleston Fall Wedding
Kristin and I were in the same sorority during our time at Purdue. Since she graduated, I have followed her successful career as a wedding planner. When I got engaged I had zero doubts who I would be asking to help me plan our destination wedding in Charleston, SC. As luck would have it, Kristin had a wedding that was rescheduled and was open for our date.
Kristin is one of the most passionate and friendly people I have ever met. Not only does she thrive at her job, it is truly her calling. Throughout the planning process she is so helpful in answering all of your questions and concerns. She is proactive in planning to ensure you can really enjoy your day stress-free, and not have to be worried about all the little things. I knew I could trust Kristin and her team with anything and that alone speaks wonders. Come wedding weekend, they were there willing to assist with anything from Rehearsal dinner, to Wedding day and even the post wedding brunch. Despite some prickly weather, our wedding day was seamless thanks to KAE keeping us on track. I cannot tell you how nice it was to leave our wedding night knowing they had taken care of everything. Any bride would be lucky to have her team as their wedding planner!
