“Hiring Kelly was the first decision we made about our wedding and the most important. We hired Kelly for full planning and she was amazing every step of the way. We didn't have strong preference on design, but we wanted to have an amazing meal. Kelly found us an incredible restaurant in Boston for our intimate wedding. For every vendor selection, Kelly gave us a manageable list to choose from with all of the information we needed to choose a few to interview or tour. Having Kelly with us for the tours was also crucial, Kelly knew all the right questions to ask in general of a venue, but also related to specific things we had shared with her based on our initial discussions for vision. After we chose the venue and I shared a florist I had fallen in love with following Kelly's instagram, Kelly worked with the florist and sent a beautiful design plan. When we first got engaged, the most nerve wracking question I had been asked was about colors- I wanted a beautiful wedding, but didn't have a style I knew I wanted. Kelly's design drew inspiration from the venue and had a summery, timely feel to it. Our venue's food style is farm coastal and for our July wedding, Kelly proposed a gorgeous "beachy urban" theme. During the wedding Kelly was both always there and hardly visible. We didn't have to talk to the staff at the venue about anything but our drink orders the whole night, everything went through Kelly. She was incredibly thoughtful and detail oriented. I took the Thursday and Friday off before the wedding, assuming there would be some final errands to run, but on Thursday I had a quick call with Kelly and there was nothing left to do, we were able to spend quiet, low key time together that day and with out out of town guests on Friday. The morning of the wedding, I thought of a couple of things I had forgotten to ask her and when I saw her while getting ready I forgot them again, but when I arrived to the venue, she had handled everything- even what I thought I had forgotten. Working with Kelly will ensure that you have a beautiful wedding that you and your guests all get to enjoy.”
“Kelly is truly magical. We were very instantly sold on working with Kelly from the initial phone conversation - she was attentive, creative, charming and organized. She is incredibly responsive which makes a huge difference when wedding planning is often a flurry of emails. She offered advice, guidance and suggestions when needed but never pushed an agenda or a plan that would be "easier" for her or more convenient. Instead, she consistently pushed us to make sure we were creating the wedding weekend that was EXACTLY what we wanted. And of course, with her execution, it was just that. I am a planner myself and while I thought on the wedding day I wouldn't be very surprised -- it blew my mind. The way she set up our barn, coordinated the timing of everything, handled little issues here and there - it was perfect and I couldn't believe it. She made our vision come to life, and much more. Probably the biggest affirmation that she is a GEM (on top of everything else) was that every single one of my bridesmaids (who were at the venue getting ready on the day) separately came up to me after interacting with Kelly and said "wow, your coordinator is such a sweet and wonderful human." We are so grateful we used Kelly to help with our wedding.”
"Where do I begin... Kelly is a PHENOMENAL planner & wedding designer. When I first perused Kelly’s website, I knew she was going to be the perfect planner and designer for me. Her taste is timeless yet modern. When I met her in person for a consultation, I was blown away by her professionalism and knowledge of the industry. Even though I had only just met her for the first time, I felt comfortable with her- it was like having coffee with an old friend! I let Kelly know that we were planning a wedding on a short timeline (5 months) and Kelly reassured me it could be done. She helped me plan a fairy tale wedding within that shortened span. Kelly was on top of everything and helped me stay on track in the planning process through applications such as AislePlanner and constant contact via email or text. Any questions or concerns I had, Kelly was there to walk me through it. There is a lot to learn about wedding planning- and Kelly has the knowledge to help you create your dream day! She also helps with the tedious tasks associated with weddings- such as tracking RSVPs, reaching out to vendors, and creating favors/ welcome baskets. If you are someone who has a busy schedule, Kelly takes so much off of your plate! On the day of, Kelly brought all of my ideas to life when it comes to wedding design. She has such an incredible eye for what looks good, and her design was better than I could have ever expected. From beautiful table decor to a totally random yet awesome cactus photo board you put your head in to, Kelly can do it all. She has the connections to get you any item you desire for your wedding, and the talent to build something if it does not already exist. On the evening of the wedding, Kelly was there whenever I needed her. Her execution of the event was flawless. When I said goodbye to her at the end of the night, it was bittersweet. She had helped me plan such a fairy tale day, and I was sad that our time planning together had come to an end! All in all, if you want to have your dream wedding, you MUST have Kelly by your side!”
“Everyone needs a Kelly in his or her lives/on wedding day! I got married on 10/19/19 and hired Kelly for month of management and it was THE BEST decision I had ever made. Kelly was professional and organized throughout the entire process. She offered suggestions in the most unobtrusive and helpful way. Kelly’s calm demeanor and always smiling face made wedding planning enjoyable and less stressful. I couldn’t imagine wedding day without her! Kelly, thank you SO much from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special and so easy for us!”
“I could gush for hours about how much I loved working with Kelly. She is amazing. She designed and planned two parties for me this year--a Harry Potter baby shower and a Gratitude party, which was essentially a survival party where I thanked friends and family for being there for me this year. Every detail and personal touch was perfect, and I'm *so* glad I trusted her to come up with her own vision both times! She thought of everything -- the venues were warm and welcoming, the food was excellent, the flowers were stunning, and each event was a truly magical celebration. I was able to be hands-off, and everything was perfect. Thank you, Kelly, for putting together two beautiful events as perfectly as you did! You really nailed it! I would trust you with anything!”
“We had a wonderful experience working with Kelly for our Sept. 2019 wedding. We booked a custom package including Design, Wedding Management, and Partial Vendor Services. Kelly executed each element flawlessly. We loved Kelly's eye for design. Kelly created a beautiful design plan for our wedding and included many thoughtful details. We especially loved the theme of "crisp, cozy elegance" that Kelly developed, which translated into neutral colors, natural materials, and soft textures. Kelly has exquisite taste and understands the special details that stand out to guests. Kelly's communication with other vendors made the wedding planning process so much easier for us. She asked all the right questions, and thought of everything. My husband and I truly enjoyed our wedding weekend, without having to stress about any details, thanks to Kelly. Kelly is a wonderful person to work with. She is professional, attentive, kind, and thoughtful. Her communications over email were prompt and detailed. We are so glad that we hired Kelly for our wedding, and recommend her very highly.”
"Kelly was the best money I spent on my wedding! She went above and beyond to make sure the wedding spoke to our personal tastes, and what she was able to bring to life met all of my expectations and more. What I really liked about Kelly initially was the option to tailor my planning package. I wanted to be more involved and I had a vision of what I wanted but I had no idea how to make it come to life. Kelly let me pick and choose the things I wanted to handle and then offered her assistance in areas I knew I needed help. One thing that I especially loved was how great she was at sourcing items to match our design, she basically made my Pinterest page become a reality and added in unique touches I hadn't thought of. I could go on forever but my last note on Kelly is her warm and calm personality. She immediately feels like a friend you've known forever and her calm demeanor throughout the wedding planning process was SO helpful to me. If you are back and forth on hiring a planner and day of coordinator...DO IT!"
"Kelly was our month-of and day-of wedding coordinator, and she was fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for a more calming, organized, kind, or helpful person to spend the day with us. Thanks to Kelly, we were able to truly savor our wedding (and the month leading up to it) without having to worry about setup, vendors, breakdown, or if we were in the right place at the right time. Her rehearsal coordination helped us to feel prepared for the big day, and she was always ready with helpful advice during our planning phase. Kelly is incredibly thoughtful and compassionate. She is wonderful at working with different personalities, and we were so lucky to have her with us on our wedding day. To any couple considering whether to hire a day-of coordinator: it’s well worth it. And to any couple ready to hire a day-of coordinator: hire Kelly!"
"My fiance and I planned our Boston wedding from Maryland and we were in desperate need of a month of wedding coordinator. I did phone interviews with a couple of local coordinators/planners but none gave me the warm and fuzzy feeling that I got when speaking with Kelly. Kelly was amazing from the moment that we signed the contract. She was flexible with our schedule since we only made a few visits into town before the wedding, and she made some great recommendations and gave advice. She dealt with a major last minute catastrophe (my grandfather breaking his ankle a day before the wedding) and made last minute changes to ensure that he would be able to wheel me down the aisle. She ran our rehearsal and checked on me the morning of the wedding to make sure that I wasn't too stressed. It seriously seemed like Kelly was everywhere I needed her to be at once and my day went without a hitch (well if there was a hitch, she did a good job at keeping it from me). I would recommend Kelly without a doubt to anyone looking for a planner. She is simply amazing and a lot of my other vendors shared the same sentiment! Although I am happy the planning of my wedding is over, I am sad that I won't be working with Kelly anymore."
"Kelly was an amazing day-of coordinator! And really, she was available to me long before the day of my wedding, helping me figure out things like seating, flow, timing, etc. On my wedding day, I was able to relax and enjoy it, knowing that Kelly had everything under control. She arrived bright and early in the morning and stayed until everything was done. She has a very calming presence - great for anxious / panicked brides! And she's super-detail oriented and organized. I felt so comfortable working with her. Can't say enough great things!"
"Oh my, where do I begin? Working with you was not only a pleasure because we are friends, but you are seriously amazing at your job! Never once did you make me feel like anything was too crazy, and the amount of stress you took off my plate was invaluable. Everything turned out absolutely perfect, even better than I could have imagined, and we owe it all to you!"
"Kelly was AMAZING to work with - not only was she on top on every detail we threw her way, but she was so responsive leading up to our wedding day and always made me feel that she had things under control. She is extremely professional and asks all the right questions (some you wouldn't even think of yourself!) to you as the couple and to each of our vendors. She even ended up driving my bouquet to the park where we were taking first-look photos when my florist was over an hour late, and still managed to get everything done without a hitch. Throughout the day and into the reception, she checked in with us to make sure we were okay, but was able to handle everything on-site including rounding up our wedding party and parents for entrances/walks/photos. At the end of the night, she had everything packed up nicely for us to pick up the next day - I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who wants a worry-free wedding day (and all of the months leading up to that)! Thank you Kelly!!"
"Hiring Kelly was THE BEST decision we made about our wedding. We knew we wanted a wedding coordinator so that we could really enjoy our day and not stress, and she made this happen! She helped us with so many things-from coordinating with all of our vendors to handling all of the details of the day. She helped us craft a vision for our dream day, and it was better than we could have imagined. She answered all of my questions (very quickly, too), and helped calm me down anytime I got anxious. Kelly is the perfect combination of professional, creative, detail-oriented and all around lovely."
"We LOVED working with Kelly Golia. We had a camp-themed wedding, and, after just ~5 minutes with Kelly, my now husband, and me on the phone, my husband remarked "You get us!" She understood our vision and pushed us to think about additional, complementary items. She is also very organized - I loved her Google spreadsheets that gave us all the information we needed, including pricing. Plus, when we couldn't find online an item we liked, Kelly and her dad made them!! She made our beautiful escort board, customized to match our theme and colors. She's creative, flexible, and a total sweetheart. We would definitely work with Kelly again - she's fabulous!"
“I had the pleasure of working with Kelly this fall and she is not only a warm and pleasant person to be around but her attention to detail and her organizational skills were just what you would hope for in a wedding planner! She kept the flow of the day on track and made sure everything was as the couple had intended it to be. I would highly recommend Kelly and hope to work with her again sometime soon!”
As a venue we work with more wedding professionals in a year than many couples will in their entire lives. We have seen the good and the bad in every area of the complex inner workings of event planning, photography, music, catering and any other business that might be involved in just one wedding. I assure you that Kelly is most definitely the good! A smile goes a long way in a sixteen hour day, and alongside her professionalism, organization, attention to detail and calming demeanor, Kelly had a smile on her face from start to finish. I only hope we will get to see her again soon alongside another couple getting married at our venue. Thank you Kelly!
“We had the pleasure of working with Kelly at a perfectly planned Wedding! Her work ethic, attention to detail and communication skills are just a few of this Wedding Planners astounding attributes. She not only made the couples vision come to life, but she also factored in Vendor accommodations making a smooth process, not just the day of the Wedding, but throughout the whole planning process. She checked in with us consistently with any changes or specifics about the event. She is a hands on, dedicated Planner who we would not only highly recommend to any newly engaged couple, but to anyone who is looking for a true professional event planner! Atlas Pro DJs hopes to work with you again soon Kelly!! “
"It was such a complete and total pleasure to work with Kelly this summer! She did such a fantastic job and brought such a calm, steady and cheerful presence to the wedding. She was efficient and focused and on top of all the details. We're all still talking about what an amazing experience it was to work with Kelly and look forward to future events
"Kelly is awesome. She's very professional and will make sure that your special day will be absolutely perfect. No matter what your special requests may be, she will make sure that they are taken care of. She will be above and beyond."
