My husband and I worked with Kerry as our coordinator throughout the whole wedding planning process. She was so detail oriented it was unbelievable! She thought of things that didn't even cross my mind. I had confidence in her from day 1 and really relied on her judgment and expertise. She did not let me down in the slightest. Always quick to respond in a professional and personable manner. She made me feel like I was her only client when I know that wasn't the case. Her suggestions made our wedding the best day ever!! I can’t say enough amazing things about Kerry. My guests even commented on how well executed the wedding was and how everything went so smoothly. That is all because of Kerry. Not a single thing went wrong (at least that I was aware of) all day. While working with other coordinators during the process for various vendors I was told at one time, "Oh we don't get that detailed. It will be fine." Kerry gets "that detailed" with her work. She really sets the highest bar for making sure things get done and are done right. When speaking with Kerry you can really tell that weddings are her passion. She cares for her clients and will be there for you whenever you need her. She went out of her way multiple times to take the stress off of us and single handedly made our wedding the most perfect day! Literally stress free! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Kerry!! :) -Amber E
In the beginning stages of wedding planning, we were unsure if we were going to use a wedding coordinator. However, after our first meeting with Simply Elegant Group we knew we needed their help on our wedding day. They really take an interest in you as a couple and what your specific needs are. We found them to be extremely helpful with remembering the many details, organizing the vendors, and making a timeline for our wedding day so we could enjoy every moment! Kerry was our lead planner and she is AMAZING! She is very calm, sweet, detail oriented, and responsive. Christine worked with her on our wedding day and she is a sweetheart as well along with being so organized! Highly recommend! Big thanks from the Rogers- June! -Kelly R.
As an out-of-town mother of the bride, I knew a wedding planner would be helpful, but Lindsay exceeded all expectations! She provided a list of potential vendors for each category, and then my daughter and her fiance could make the choice. It was very reassuring to be able to turn to a wedding professional for answers to the multitude of questions that arose at every phase of the planning process. Lindsay answered ours with patience, enthusiasm, and a fun sense of humor. She is delightful! On the "day of" both Lindsay and Sonya were organized and professional. I truly felt comfortable that all was under control and could focus on the guests and wedding couple. At the end of the evening, Lindsay had everything we needed to load into our car organized in one location. Displays were disassembled, leftover cake boxed, extra programs gathered, etc. My husband and I were most impressed! Our heartfelt thanks go to The Simply Elegant Group. You helped make our daughter and son-in-law's wedding both spectacular and memorable! -Linda M.
One of the best decisions I made for the wedding was hiring a wedding planner. I did a lot of research and SEG was affordable and had a lot of package options. They also provide you with their preferred vendor list, most of which gave discounts for SEG. It ended up saving us a lot of money. Our planner was Ashley and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her. I know she is very busy but every time we spoke or met she made my wedding feel like a priority. She is friendly, organized and very detail oriented. She was quick to respond to emails and would periodically reach out to make sure I was on track with everything. She attended our tasting and meetings with vendors and asked questions we hadn’t even thought of. On the day of the wedding she was calm and prepared. She made sure we followed the timeline and everything went smoothly. Her and her assistant did all the behind the scenes work and helped set up. My parents had nothing but great things to say about her and were so happy she was there so they could enjoy the day. She took so much stress off of our shoulders and we are so thankful we had her there throughout the entire planning process. The price is well worth it and I would highly recommend SEG and Ashley. Our wedding was SO perfect and I have Ashley to thank for that!! -Katie G.
Words cannot express how wonderful it was to work with Kerry from Simply Elegant for our daughter's wedding in June. Having an outdoor wedding at our home was a decision that had created stress in terms of making sure that all details & contingencies were in place. Although we had debated on whether to hire a "day of" wedding planner, it was absolutely the BEST decision we could have possibly made. Kerry was such a delight and communicated with us from the day we signed our contract. Even though we live in outstate MN, she made 2 trips to our home prior to the wedding & was available by phone & email frequently. She made us feel we were the only clients. Kerry was able to answer questions, provide guidance based on her experience with over 700 weddings, mediate differences of opinion (very tactfully), contact vendors, anticipate concerns, & recommend practical & affordable ideas. On the day of the wedding, she and her assistant were amazing in taking care of details that one cannot possibly know need to be done. With an outdoor wedding, weather was a concern & a storm went through just at the time of the scheduled ceremony. We had been watching radar & knew of its impending approach. Kerry was calm and explained that she had a plan which was such a relief, so the bride and we parents were able to relax. While the wedding party was gathered in our home, Kerry directed guests to the reception tent while the storm passed. Guests were able to have a drink & socialize. When the rain was through, Kerry, her assistant, & ushers wiped down the ceremony chairs - then, moved guests to the ceremony location facing the lake. The wedding was able to proceed with that 1/2 hr. delay as if it hadn't occurred. Without a doubt, deciding to have Simply Elegant for our wedding was one of the best decisions we could have made. Kerry handled details & execution on the day of the wedding that we didn't even have to think about. From placing signs, placing centerpieces, setting tables, directing placement of items, watching the clock knowing exactly what should be happening next to lining up the wedding party & timing each person appropriately down the aisle, plus guiding & cuing the reception schedule, taking gifts into the house, clearing items from tables, & even starting a load of laundry before they left - it was an unforgettable experience. As mother of the bride, it was & continues to be a warm, wonderful memory. Kerry conveys such confidence and caring. She displays a level of professionalism that is of the highest quality & appears to approach a wedding as if it is her own. Thank you, Kerry, for all that you did! We missed you when it was over & know that the success of our wedding was truly a result of your involvement!! - Maria B.
