Every detail went off without a hitch. Your timeline was right on!
Thank you for great suggestions and total enthusiasm for our event.
You’re the BEST!

We wanted to take the time to send a note thanking you for everything you did to ensure that our wedding was extra special & absolutely perfect!
You were absolutely amazing in keeping everyone and everything in line and on schedule, which was no easy task with our group!
Most of all, you gave us such peace of mind that we need not worry about a thing because you always had our best interest in mind, and everything more than under control.
Thank you for your unending patience as I emailed you endless questions! You were always available and just wonderful!
Thank you again,

If you are seeking a fairy tale wedding, with no worries or stress regarding the planning from start to finish…Kelly Balfour is absolutely, hands down, the one you are looking for!!!!!! Upon meeting Kelly for the first time, she has a very genuine spirit, is incredibly friendly and we felt like we knew her forever. From the first meeting we felt so comfortable with Kelly, we made our decision right then and there to hire her because I knew that we were going to be in great hands.

She absolutely loves what she does and it is truly reflected in her work!!!! She answered every single phone call, every email and pulled many, many long nights – so I didn’t have to!!!! She made sure that every single detail was covered and handled our special day beautifully and professionally.

I wouldn’t even consider Kelly to be a “vendor” that I’ve worked with for my wedding….my husband Zeb and I consider Kelly to be a friend! She pours her heart and soul into every tiny detail of planning your special day, and her results will bring tears to your eyes – literally!!! Not to mention once your magical night is over….through all of the excitement, time seemed to just fly by and we thought we may have missed out on some little details of our candy or desserts….well, Kelly made sure we didn’t miss a thing!! When we got up to our suite – she had our wedding cake wrapped up for us, candy and other treats from our dessert bar all set up for us to enjoy!!!

Kelly, you are a Gem!! You made my entire wedding planning process stress-free….the only thing I had to stress about was hoping my dress would still fit after the holidays! Thank you for the kindness that is you, for touching the depth of our heart and souls, and for giving us our fairy tale wedding we dreamed about! Even though we’re sad that our day is over… you and all of the wonderful memories will never be forgotten!!!

We love you,
~Jessica and Zeb,  The Magnolia Hotel

Kelly,
You made Rich and I’s special day a dream come true! You were not just a gem during the planning process, but you were no short of amazing on the actual day. Things were beautiful, ran smoothly, and whenever there was a hint of something being slightly off you had it covered! Your expertise and advice during the planning process was much-needed and your last-minute suggestions also made the event spectacular (loved the uplighting!!). I wish you the best in all of your future weddings and I know that you will continue to bring couples great joy on their wedding day.
~Lindsey and Rich,  The Gallery

I want to thank you for all you did for our recent wedding at The Crystal Ballroom. You truly made my fairy tale wedding come alive! Thank you so much for making me feel like a Queen and having everything taken care of. You went above and beyond and I couldn’t have asked for a better or more lovely wedding coordinator.
~Alexis, Crystal Ballroom at The Rice

All I can say is WOW! Last night’s event was amazing. You worked your tail off and took care of every detail to the very end. You truly are a gifted event planner. The emails of praise and thanks for the event are still pouring in. The music, food, décor and every little detail were just perfect. Thanks!
~Mechelle Lobpries, Account Executive for The Knot, Inc.

Frank and I really appreciated all of the hard work you put into our wedding. Everything went so smoothly and our venue was just beautiful. You did a fantastic job and your attention to detail was amazing. We loved the fact that you were so professional, yet so fun and personable. We couldn’t have found anyone to have done a more satisfying job than the one you provided to us!
~Lori & Frank, Paraiso Maravilla

I just wanted to let you know that you did a wonderful job with our wedding! Everything went smoothly, and you struck the perfect balance between blending into the background and knowing when you should speak up and bring things to our attention. You were quickly responsive to all of our needs and concerns and really calmed a lot of our wedding week anxieties. Everything was more beautiful than I could’ve imagined. Thank you for bringing it all together so smoothly. Mike and I are more than happy to recommend you to any of our friends!
~Michelle, Petroleum Club of Houston

Amazing is what you are! Kelly, thank you so much for the ease and grace with which you stepped in to complete our most special day. You picked right up as if you had been working with me for months. You were such a delight and a breath of fresh air in the nick of time. Bruce and I are forever grateful to you for making our wedding day totally stress free and thoroughly enjoyable. A toast to you and many more happy weddings!
~Maria & Bruce, The St. Regis Hotel

Kelly, you are a genius! We will always be so thankful for the day that we found your name in “The Knot Best of 2008″ magazine—from that point on, we never experienced a single day of stress while planning Clare’s wedding. Her being in San Francisco and planning a Houston wedding could have been a nightmare but, because of you, it was the BEST experience we could have imagined.

Your gifts are so numerous, but I will mention a few:
• Being a fabulous resource–who to use, what was a good price, the best way to go about things.
• Providing several great discounts–simply because your name is so well-respected, vendors were willing to work with us!
• Suggesting top notch vendors without pressuring us to use them… and kudos to you for the true respect reflected from all the vendors at the mention of your name– your reputation is well-deserved! We loved all of the people who made it the perfect day, many of whom we would not have known about without your suggestions (florist, photographer, & cake to name just a few).
• Being organized– So many people commented on my calm state throughout the planning process, and the whole weekend of the wedding. I attribute this to you. I would have otherwise been a wreck, but knew without a doubt that you would be there to make it all run so smoothly.

Thank you for making the wedding the most PERFECT celebration we could have ever imagined. Every time we look at the photos and see how incredibly happy Clare and Joe are, we couldn’t be more pleased. I will be sure to contact you for the next event I plan!!
~Aileen, a very happy mother of the bride, Crystal Ballroom at The Rice

Marcia and I want to thank you so much for the fantastic job you did coordinating the wedding of our grandaughter Tiffany Satterfield to Michael Dyer.
Your knowledge and expertise, and the fact that you had to take on the responsiblity of the event manager, were exceptional. Your work was professional in all areas.
Finally, I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so kind in fulfilling all of our requests.
~ Bill Thorn, Grandfather of the Bride, The Gallery

We so want to thank you for the absolutely fabulous job you did coordinating our wedding. Everything went unbelievably perfect and the venue looked beautiful! And the best part is, we didn’t have to worry about a thing! We really can’t thank you enough! We so appreciate all your hard work– if you ever need a recommendation or referral–please look no further.
~ Alison & Peter, Ouisie’s Table

I don’t know if I expressed it enough the day of my wedding, but you definitely went above and beyond. Throughout the entire process, I felt confident that you had my best interest at heart. You left no detail unattended and were professional yet so fun at the same time! Family and friends repeatedly mentioned how great you were to work with along with how thorough you were. I make it a point to tell everyone how helpful it was to have not just ANY wedding coordinator, but specifically you! In an industry where there are unfortunately some people that try to take advantage of unsuspecting brides, you make every effort to do the right thing. Thank you so much for making such an important day of my life memorable and special. I couldn’t have done it without you! (in fact, when people compliment me on what a beautiful & fun wedding it was, I HAVE to give credit to you.)
