Working with Kristen turned my wedding from a backyard shindig into a beautifully orchestrated affair. She was incredible to work with leading up to the day, her organization was impeccable, her attention to details astouding and her cheerfulness always so nice to be around. Kristen assembled an incredible team of waitstaff, bartenders and other service providers. She worked with all of my vendors to ensure everything ran smoothly. 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!”

Kristen & her team are THE BEST and a pleasure to work with. She is professional, smart, creative & handled all of the details of our our wedding weekend in a timely manner. Her relationships with local vendors were a major plus, and everything turned out better than we could have ever imagined! a dream come true!

KG Events & Design was a dream to work with from start to finish! Kristen and team coordinated our entire wedding weekend for 215 people and made it look easy. Her close relationships with the best vendors on island made our decisions easy, as well as left us rest assured we were getting the best prices possible. Our wedding was at a farm where eveything had to be brought in and she had all of the logistics covered from tent setup to water hose configurations to bug repelent in the little pond to keep insects away to next day cleanup. She is a great partner and listener making sure every detail you want is included, and takes the stress away from all of the mundane tasks you don’t want to deal with. The day of was seamless with her and her team ready with anything we needed. Kristen kept us on schedule in a completely unobtrusive way, made sure we always had food and drinks, and, most importantly, had fun. Best day of our lives. I wish we could do it again!

We absolutely loved working with Kristen! She is SO professional and coordinated every detail of our vow renewal — hairstylist, officiant, ceremony, flowers, photographer, restaurant — even champagne for us after we exchanged vows. I am already planning to use her for our 35th anniversary vow renewal…maybe in La Jolla or Maui?

Kristen and team were a pleasure to work alongside during the wedding I was involved in this weekend. They were approachable and helpful, but most importantly- extremely organized. I was impressed with how on-point they were down to every single little detail necessary, before we could even think to ask. With such an amazing taste level and a brilliant eye for event design, I would recommend KG Events & Design to anyone and everyone!
– Chris, “Bridesman” September 2014 Wedding
To say KG Events and Design is AMAZING is an understatement. They literally saved my day. After an unfortunate family tragedy with my previous coordinator. I literally contacted Kristen four nights out from my event in hysterics. Something no bride should deal with week of! Kristen swooped in and was emailing and calling my vendors as soon as I got off the phone with her probably at 9 at night at that point. She found “holes” in my orders and went through everything with a fine toothed comb. My space wasn’t a standard venue, it was out door and tented at an inn so I really needed someone there to help and deal with any issues that occur on anyones big day. They came in a couple days out from the ceremony, we went over set up and where I wanted my decorations as well as table seating. We knew we were in good hands and I was finally able to relax. Day of it seemed flawless. They were there from bringing me breakfast, setting up everything perfectly and so on. Both ladies were extremely calm, confident and they did it all with a huge smile! They went above and beyond in my opinion. My friends and family raved about them. There wasn’t a moment where I didn’t have a drink, or food and I think my guests could say the same. I could go on and on about this vendor if you want but seriously just do yourself a favor and hire them! KG Events came in last minute and my wedding was beautiful imagine what they could do if you actually hire them on time. Bravo! I know I will be hearing many great things about Kristen and her company in the future!!

‘Kristen was a delight to work with. She made everything smooth and easy, and always remained calm and positive which really made the entire weekend more enjoyable for our families. She seamlessly dealt with several last minute guest list changes and the torrential rainstorm we had the day of the wedding – nothing fell out of place. She was on-top of every detail, and went above and beyond to make sure everyone had what they needed. If you are looking for a wedding or event planner, search no further as Kristen is the best around!’

“Kristen was a mother of the bride’s dream come true! She was organized, practical, and had answers to all of my questions! She perfectly navigated the unique relationship between mother and daughter in a very kind and non judgemental manner. On the day of, she was attentive and calm. I was able to be a guest at my daughter’s wedding because I had 100% confidence in her. What a pleasure to work with!”
