"keely was exceptional from our very first connection! she listened to our ideas and what was important to us on our wedding day. she brought so many unique ideas and was so enthusiastic throughout the whole process. he hit the mark with our very first design proposal and hit the ground running. keely brought so many talented vendors into our wedding day that made it so enchanting. keely is truly gifted with her wedding visions and making literal magic happen. she went above and beyond in her role of our wedding designer and truly became a friend throughout the process. I can honestly say that keely made our wedding a dream come true and we could not have done it without her!"

"keely flatness was an integral contributor in every facet of planning our recent wedding on june 6,2021. yes, a COVID wedding, a wedding that had to keep up with the ever-changing days. keely came into our lives approximately one year before the first idea of our ideal wedding was thought about. from our first meeting, it was immediately apparent that we would be choosing to work with keely for the remainder of our engagement. she came into the first meeting with many wonderful ideas, but more importantly, she took the time to get to know us as a couple and helped us begin to visualize what we wanted our wedding day to look like, sound like and feel like.

keely was a consummate professional; she not only handled our flowers, linens, table settings, guest lists, venue contract, and other important details, she also kept us organized with our small tasks and timelines that were necessary for the wedding to come off as we hoped. her time management skills were exemplary, she was always available and accessible to us and our many questions and requests. keely was able to take care of details we were not interested in and was able to give extremely practical input into any decisions that we did choose to be involved in. She was gracious in her dealings with all wedding stakeholders (ie parents) and was transparent in all communications, be it financial or otherwise. she managed to create an elegant event that truly represented us, and she did it within budget.

while we imagine that all wedding and event planners can create aesthetically pleasing events, what set keely apart and made us appreciate her as much more than just our wedding planner was her personal and social efforts to work with us as a couple rather than just a "client." she not only asked questions, she actively listened to our answers and thoughts and incorporated them into her suggestions and decisions. she came to understand what we value in each other as partners, and she helped us to realize how that could be represented genuinely in our wedding. without exaggeration, we owe our wedding day success to keely. it was literally everything we had hoped for and more. if there were any challenges on the day off, we never knew about them because she was there every step of the way to take care of them. without hesitation, we would recommend keely as an event planner that will help you to personalize any occasion. we are lucky to have keely in our life forever as a friend!"

"where do I begin!? i can't recommend keely enough! we found her after having to cancel our initial plans because of covid and move venues. She wasn't phased by our short timeline and brought our vision to life perfectly. it was even more amazing than we’d imagined and there's no way we would have been able to pull it off on our own.

during the planning process, she dealt with curveballs from our vendors and found solutions before we even knew there was a hiccup. and maybe most importantly, we felt so relaxed and happy all day and night (even through a storm and last-minute move of our ceremony location) all because of her. these pics don't do it justice, but trust me: keely will make your dreams come true!"

"I honestly can't recommend keely enough. about halfway through my wedding planning process, I was overwhelmed with the design aspect and came across keely's work and fell in love. perhaps it was fate because in the midst of the pandemic and wedding postponements, she was able to help even though she had a commitment the same weekend as my wedding. that was the first sign of her going above and beyond. she was able to take everything I had half started and completely transform it to everything I had ever envisioned. when planning a wedding, it's easy to feel like you're just a number to a lot of vendors, but keely really puts her all into her clients and her work and it completely shows. she responds in a super timely manner, is considerate, knowledgeable and cares about what you actually want. the first time we actually got to meet was on my wedding day because I planned it from out of state. it truly felt like seeing a long lost friend because of the process we went through in creating the overall vibe of my day, which was so cool to have.

last thing I'll say- if you aren't sure about hiring a stylist or someone to help with your overall design, just remember that having a professional come in and do it is always worth it. as a bride, you have a million other things going on and it's important to invest in quality vendors that help not only alleviate some of that stress but help you execute your dream day. all of my wedding guests truly said it was the prettiest and well thought out wedding they had ever been to and I owe it all to keely."
