We love our couples and always want to hear how we made your day extra special. Scroll down to read kind words from some of our wonderful wedding couples!
“… I couldn't possibly wrap my mind around keeping all of our vendors organized after a while! I honestly contacted Kate right away, we scheduled a meeting face to face, and she completely won us over. She was so sweet, organized, and knowledgeable, so it was not a question in my mind after that. She started right away and introduced herself to our vendors, helped us with a timeline, and just kept us on track in the last couple of hectic months leading to the wedding. What topped it off was that our venue told her about two days before our wedding that we could no longer have the ceremony on the rooftop, which Kate had the lovely task of breaking the bad news to us. She helped us switch to another ceremony space in the same venue without any issues at all and really kept our minds at ease. She just gave us our options and the pros and cons with everything so that the decision on the new space was entirely ours and fits our vision. On the day of, I didn't have any concerns and felt so relaxed. Kate and Elaine thought of every detail and really made it the best day ever! I couldn't thank them enough for everything they did. I keep getting comments on how perfect everything was and how smooth it all went and I just tell everyone that it's because of my amazing coordinators! I highly recommend them for anyone's special day!”

“Omg, I am so lucky to have stumbled upon Kate's the Key...and so are you! From the beginning, Kate and Elaine always made me feel comfortable and confident that my wedding would be everything I hoped for. I chose the "Keep it simple" package, and these ladies delivered far beyond that. I could always count on Kate to answer any questions I had and she remained so patient and kind as she helped my clueless self navigate the wedding planning process. When we got news 5 days before the wedding that we could no longer use the venue due to the fires in Malibu, Kate and Elaine came to the rescue! Kate calmly informed me of the situation, allowed me to take a breath, and then jumped into business mode. It was exactly what I needed. With Thanksgiving 3 days away, finding a new venue, catering, and set up seemed daunting, but Kate and Elaine cracked down and in just 2 days we were able to relocate. And the processes was flawless. On the wedding day I was able to feel so at ease as they worked to keep everything in line. They did an amazing job and I kept getting compliments about how professional they are. Kate and Elaine are 2 badass woman and I have no doubt they could handle anything that comes their way. Love you ladies!”

Kate, Elaine, and LeAnn were the captains of the all-star team of vendors we recruited for our wedding. We couldn't have been happier with their services.
First, Kate and team were incredibly organized, communicative, and generous with their time and advice. My wife and I are both logistics junkies; Kate and the team cleared the very high bar we set for our wedding coordinator. They put together a timeline that took into account the time limits of our venue and the aggressive programming we wanted to take place during our wedding. They also worked behind the scenes to ensure all our vendors were on the same page about day-of logistics. Kate ran an efficient rehearsal that left us plenty of time to be with our guests the day before the wedding, and on the day-of, Kate and Elaine ran a tight ship but still managed to get my wife and I everything we needed throughout the night.
Our wedding was the best day of our lives in large part because Kate, Elaine, and LeAnn put their very best feet forward to make our dream come true. We would have paid twice or three times as much as we did for their services because they were excellent in every way. We give them our highest recommendation if you're looking for a well-run wedding. Thanks Kate, Elaine, and LeAnn!

"I used Kate’s the Key for the full service for my wedding last November in Monterey. I would not have been able to pull off the wedding without them! Being a destination wedding, there were a lot of unknowns in terms of vendors, etc. Kate worked within my budget to put me in contact with vendors in the area, and they all did An amazing job! With my busy work schedule up until the wedding, Kate and LeAnn were so helpful with setting up my timelines and coordinating with the vendors as needed to make sure everything would fall into place. They coordinated with the venue to set up the seating chart/layout, and made sure they had the time to set up the decorations AND flowers the day of! Kate, LeAnn, and Elaine did a fantastic job with the decorations and flowers. They made sure it was everything I envisioned with a beautiful mix of succulents, flowers, driftwood and beach decor!! We also had our friend as our officiant, and it was his first time performing a ceremony, Kate took the reigns and helped with the rehearsal, which was above and beyond!! I would recommend Kate’s the Key for your wedding coordination needs. Truly a great family!"

"Kate, Elaine and Leanne are the DREAM TEAM! They are phenomenal. Professional, caring, compassionate everything you can imagine in a team of ladies that are taking care of your entire day - the most important day of your life. They met with me several times, reviewed my timeline with me over and over until it was perfect, they made sure that I was always satisfied, gave me helpful tips when needed and were always available throughout all hours of the day when I needed them for texting, calling, emailing etc. On the day of my wedding, they were so prepared with everything you can imagine - from safety pins, to ribbons, to make up to literally everything! You cannot ask for a better group of women to make sure that everything on your day is handled. If you're looking for a great team, you need to go with Kate's the Key. You will not regret it."

"Kate and her team were truly phenomenal. I was the matron of honour this past weekend and boy did they work hard. Everything was organized, and the bride was truly impressed by their level of work. Everything, I mean EVERYTHING was taken of. If we had a question or request, the team found answers for us. They were also very considerate: they brought us a case of water while we were getting ready, Kleenex for guests at the wedding, and set up for two ceremonies and a reception. They are truly fantastic. I highly recommend this company. They met with the bride and I about a month before the wedding to review everything and take notes. The whole bridal party received revisions and the day of, we were guided and kept in the loop. Very organized, courteous, and professional."
"I can't express enough how wonderful it was to work with Kate and Elaine! I hired them to be my day of coordinators and it was the best decision. After the first meeting, my stress level dropped 100%, and I knew they were going to be amazing... and they were. I am so grateful for the incredible level of service, their impeccable timing, the professionalism they displayed throughout the process, and the perfect day they helped to create for me, my husband and all of our family and guests. I would hire them again in a second. I am eternally grateful - my wedding day was everything I hoped it would be and more. I couldn't have pulled it all off without them. Thank you ladies, from my heart!!"

I can’t say enough good things about the Kate’s the Key team. As a working mom, wedding planning was so daunting to me. Their expertise, patience, and support allowed them to seamlessly orchestrate this celebration in a matter that I can say would have totally overwhelmed my skill level. Hiring them was the best decision we’ve made! They took care of everything for us down to every little detail. All of this allowed us to focus on our special day and never once during the actual event did we have to worry about a single thing. They are an amazing team!!!

“We had the absolute best experience with Kate and Elaine for our wedding! I was a pretty DIY bride, but I knew I didn’t want to worry about anything on the big day, and with Kate and team, I definitely didn’t have to. They really took care of everything - from helping figure out layout, managing the timeline, setting up our decor, to coordinating with vendors - and are so organized and on top of everything that you and your family/wedding party can simply just enjoy the day. For someone like me planning a wedding with no experience, it helps immensely to have someone on your side who knows what they’re doing. For example, she asked questions of vendors that I definitely wouldn’t have thought to ask, but were important and it was a relief to have that back up in those moments. I feel like she also took the time to get to know me and our vision for our wedding, so I was extremely comfortable with her when the day finally came. Kate’s the Key felt like the right fit from our first phone call and it really was the best decision to hire them. They went above and beyond to make our day completely stress-free and better than we’d envisioned. I can’t recommend them enough! Everyone needs a Kate and Elaine on their wedding day.”
