Kind Words From Our Clients

When planning our dream wedding in the place where we fell in love there was no question at all about who to use to help our dream and vision for our magical day come alive! From the very beginning working with the KG team was amazing. They understand our vision, and helped us every step of the way, from picking flowers, to selecting venues for all our events, to helping organize the logistics of assisting family and friends with finding places to stay on the island during one of the busiest times of the years 4th of July weekend, KG was spot on and thought of everything. We could not be more thankful for their talent, expertise, and dedication to ensuring we could relax and just enjoy our day. Thank you Kim, Kristen, and Meghan!!!!

Amy B.

Kristen was incredible to work with, her organization was impeccable, her attention to details astounding and her cheerfulness always so nice to be around. On the day of the wedding, she took charge of her team, had everything running on time and without issue, and made sure that everyone our families had a drink in their hands and a plate of food. This was full service at its best!

Alexi M.

Kristen is one of the most talented, organized, professional, and all around best people I have ever worked with that has anything to do with the wedding industry. Hiring Kristen and her team was hands-down the best decision we made for our day. My day was PERFECT, could not have been any better, and I owe many thanks to KG Events.

Stephanie R.

The best investment of our entire wedding—full stop. I want to express my heartfelt thanks for all that KG Events did to make our day so special and seamless. I genuinely do not know what we would have done without KG Events. We would recommend KG Events to anyone planning a wedding on the Vineyard, the Cape, and beyond.
