“Let me start by saying one thing: Thank you. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined how much Melissa and I would need your help on our wedding day. “How tough can it be, I thought. “I’ll have plenty of time to take care of the little details. It’s not like getting into a tuxedo takes that much time. As it turned out, I barely had enough wits about me to do the little things that day. Like eat. Or dress. Let alone worry about where the flowers should go and when to feed the guests. Then, there you were, a miraculous blur, zipping around, fixing this and directing that. Everything you did was seamless and invisible. In the end, our wedding day was perfect. If I dare say so, it was the best wedding of 2003! Thanks in no small part to your amazing efforts. So, let me also finish by saying one thing: Thank you, a million times, thank you.”

- Jeremy, Groom

“I don’t even know where to begin! Thank you so much for all of your hard work in planning my wedding. Your support, great advice, and sense of humor have made this whole process so much fun! Even when we have hit a few bumps, you have been so reassuring and kept me calm throughout! I am so grateful to have found you – I will be telling everyone I know to go with Simply Wed if they want a fabulous wedding! You are so wonderful to work with!”

- Becky, Bride

Kirstie Warren from Simply Wed did an absolutely amazing work in making our day perfect!   She was detailed, resourceful and very creative in planning each and every component of our mixed (Indian-American) wedding.   On a very limited budget she and a fantastic team of hand selected vendors were able to custom build a beautiful mandap (for the Hindu ceremony), centerpieces for our reception, and décor throughout Novelty Hill – Januik winery; making it such a special venue for us and all of our guests.  On top of these feats, Chef Dan Koommoo at Novelty Hill – Januik created a custom Indian fusion menu for both the cocktail hour and reception which was an absolute hit with a very eclectic crowd of friends and family from all across the world.  Our wedding was a monumental task, and we are so grateful that we choose Kirstie at Simply Wed to steer the ship.

“Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding planning and celebration so special. The day exceeded my expectations – it was so much fun and stress free. It would not have been that way without you! The vendors you put me in touch with were perfect, the venue was amazing and your skills at “red wine removal” were top notch. Thank you for all the extra day-of attention. It was a pleasure to work with you and I will be referring you to everyone I can!”

- Heather, Bride

Just wanted to send you another note to say that you were amazing yesterday! Everything looked beyond my expectations and inspirations, you helped to execute it to perfection. Simply Wed … Simply the Best! Thank you again!

- Jesi, Bride

“We would like to thank you for making our wedding day one that we will never forget! We deeply appreciate all of the work you did and the beautiful ambiance you created! Every detail was handled with such professionalism and grace even when faced with so many unforeseen challenges. I truly do not know how you do what you do and there is absolutely no way we could have ever done this on our own. We were also so impressed with all of the likeminded professionals you surround yourself with, making every referral you provided a wonderful one and extending our confidence into every other element of our event. So in closing, we would actually like to give ourselves a huge pat on the back for our wedding because we found you! 🙂 In all seriousness, hiring you was the best decision we ever made for our wedding and we will be referring your service for all the years to come.”

- Erin & Matt, Bride & Groom

We trusted you every step of the way. You made our wedding day even more wonderful than we envisioned. Thank you! It was actually fun planning out the details with you via email for months! You made it seem so simple. Hey, that word really does sum up what you do…Simply Wed. Thank you for an incredible journey. Thank you for the sweet memories. Simply, thank you.

- Deana & Nancy, Brides

“I wanted to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding so spectacular. I haven’t heard a bad thing from anyone and in fact here are a few of the comments we’ve been hearing since the event: “The best wedding in years!”“Magical!” “Lord Hill Farms has never looked this good.” (LHF Employee) “The best wedding I have ever been to; even better than mine! We couldn’t have done it without you. I am telling everything that I only have two tips for engaged couples; 1) Get a wedding planner – I know the best one, and 2) leave for your honeymoon the next day and don’t look back!”

- Brittany & Brian, Bride & Groom

“You have been so amazing, creative, resourceful efficient, and professional. I am so glad that we chose to work with you and there is absolutely no way we could have pulled it off without you. I can’t believe that the big day is finally here – thank you, thank you, thank you!”

- Ciana & Jeremy, Bride & Groom

“We’ve just gotten home from a magical wedding week! Alan and I THANK YOU for all you did to make Laura and Scott’s wedding absolutely wonderful! We couldn’t have been more pleased. I know the day was exactly what Laura dreamed of – including the weather. Alan and I spent a few extra days in the NW and have reflected on the wedding day and have thought of all of the little things that made it “their day.” We were able to enjoy it all without worrying about those little things – thanks to you. We appreciate your attention to details – large and small – and your diligence in making sure things ran as planned. When we saw Laura and Scott Sunday morning at brunch, they were ecstatic and couldn’t have been happier. We sincerely appreciate all of your advice and help.”

- Becky, Mother of the Bride

“There is not one memory that doesn’t include your delicate touch, so we want to thank you immensely for making such a significant time in our family’s life so memorable. Your enthusiasm, professionalism, poise, anticipation of needs, tireless follow-through, smooth management of unique logistics, and thorough and frequent communication are but some of the features you lent to this affair. Every bride and her family should be so blessed to have such service!
In summary, while we wanted a hands-on involvement, to be certain, we did not want the conflict between detail and enjoyment. Your assistance was valued immeasurably and I do not hesitate to recommend you to future brides. Again, thank you.”

- Debbie, Mother of the Bride

Thank you does not suffice! But know from the bottom of our hearts how much we appreciate Kirstie’s 1 ½ years of work. Rain and all it was a great success thanks to you! Many thanks to you!

- Nancy, Mother of the Bride

“I was impressed how well you laid out all the components, their costs and communicated to us our various responsibilities. We all had confidence going into the ceremony that it was well planned and reflected what we had envisioned. The end result was our family truly enjoyed this special event without the constant stress of attending to all of the small but important details that inevitably go with a wedding. It was indeed a pleasure to work with you and I would recommend you to others without reservation.”

- John, Father of the Bride

“I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Kirstie on a number of weddings. Her positive energy and upbeat attitude are infectious, and her style and clarity help to make everyone’s job just a bit easier. While Kirstie is a very “hands-on” co-coordinator, she also understands the subtleties of “hands-off” which allows her carefully selected vendors to do their absolute best. As a creative person, I especially appreciate that!”

- Paul Sanders, Photobiographer

“I have worked with Kirstie over the past two years, and she is wonderful! Her organization, patience, creativity, and love for weddings are all contributing factors to her success. She listens to each client’s needs and vision for their big day, and then helps put together and execute a plan to make it happen.”

- Catrina Cook, Bell Harbor International Conference Center

“Kirstie is a fantastic wedding planner and coordinator! I love her enthusiasm for each new client and helping them plan a wedding that fits their personality and style. No two weddings are the same! Her communication with the different vendors involved with the wedding is always current and never overbearing. She is excellent with keeping things rolling smoothly the day of the wedding and never seems to be rattled if plans need tweaked at the last minute. I would highly recommend her services!!”

- Julie Borrud, Bella Rugosa

“Kirstie is a dream to work with—she is detail oriented and her events go like clockwork because every detail is addressed before the event. As a vendor, I appreciate the professional way she counsels clients on the options available to transform the event in their vision into reality.”

- Denise Novak, AA Party Rentals

“So, you’re getting married. The first call you should make is to Kirstie Warren at Simply Wed. She is a simply outstanding wedding/event coordinator. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and enjoying it should be your top priority. Kirstie has great relationships with the best vendors and the best venues. She has awesome taste. I can’t recommend her more highly.”
