"I highly recommend Kristine King for any event planning one may need. We were fortunate enough to have Kristine help us plan our wedding this spring- May 2017, and she was everything we could possibly want in a wedding planner. She is calm, she is organized, and she is thorough. She made sure every detail was taken care of, sought our input and followed through with our suggestions all in the most timely and professional way. With every conversation I had with Kristine I felt more and more relaxed and excited. Kristine will make sure your dream wedding comes to fruition; she will take care of the many details one may neglect, handle the big and small hurdles and she will honor and follow through with your ideas so that what you’ve imagined
can be experienced." – Lily Strange, Bride

 

"Our daughter Lily was married to Jonathan Ritchie on our family farm in Gordonsville, VA in late May of this year. Our son Zander was married to Heather Dragon here two years earlier at the same venue. There is a distinct difference between marrying a daughter, & marrying a son. One obvious difference is that the brides family typically pays for the wedding, and probably more importantly, is responsible for organizing the event. We could have not pulled this off without the help of Kristine King. Kristine did an amazing job of putting everything seamlessly together. She organized & printed out a timeline that we followed to the minute which coordinated the ceremony, the photography, the dinner & the bar, as well as the band, cutting of the cake & all the other details that I would have probably forgotten. In short, she is the consummate professional & a pleasure to work with." – Philip Strange, Father of the Bride

"Kristine King Events went above and beyond for our wedding! When I first met Kristine, I immediately knew that I wanted her to plan my wedding. I always had this picture of a wedding planner being very intense, unfriendly and bossy. Kristine treated us like family the second we met her. She is so welcoming and friendly but, also, an incredibly hard worker!! She gave us great advice while, also, listening to what we had in mind for our wedding. Kristine planned a picture perfect wedding that Paul and I will look back on for years to come and smile. It was truly an amazing day and it wouldn't have been that perfect without the help of Kristine! Again, thank you so much for everything you did!! It was an absolutely perfect day." – Lisa Moseley, Bride
 

"As a veteran DJ of over 25 years, I have worked with countless event planners, but rarely have I worked with one so thoughtful and thorough as Kristine. While it’s normal for planners to be concerned about the needs of the bride and groom, I’ve never worked with a planner so concerned with the needs of the entertainment. From our initial contact, to our post wedding follow-up, Kristine not only consistently communicated important details of our event – from room layout to special requests –  but she made sure we were aware of everything important to the family in terms of entertainment. By going the extra mile, even for the entertainment, Kristine demonstrated to me that she is passionate about her work and is committed to her clients. Thank you, Kristine. I look forward to working with you again!" – Keith Pierce, Pierce Entertainment

"Thanks to Kristine, our wedding day was the best day of our lives!  Planning my wedding was something I dreamed about my whole life but when my dream became a reality, I instantly knew I was going to need help planning and organizing this wonderful event!  I met with Kristine several months before my wedding and was instantly impressed with how organized and prepared she was right from the start.  There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that this was who I wanted to work with!

I was overwhelmed and anxious about the timeframe and what needed done when but she didn’t hesitate to calm my nerves and help keep me on track. Kristine’s response time to me emails or phone calls was almost immediate, always making me feel like I was a priority. Did I mention how organized she is?  Yes, I know I did, but it can’t be said enough! She was in constant contact with all of my venders to ensure everything would go smoothly on the day of the wedding – and trust me everything was perfect!

Everyone always says it’s ok if something goes wrong because no one will know but you. Well, I can honestly say that NOTHING went wrong.  We cannot even begin to express the depth of our gratitude to Kristine. Thank you isn’t enough! My family and I did not have to worry about a single thing on our special day, and it was comforting to know that we were in the best hands. We had a quick peak at the reception before our guests entered and we were blown away by how incredible everything looked. Kristine was there from morning until night making sure everything went as planned and looked even better than I imagined.  Every time I needed something, she was there.

I wouldn’t have wanted to work with anyone else and I am SO happy that we had her help! One of the best things about working with Kristine was that we were able to be guests at our own wedding and enjoy ourselves! It can’t get any better than that! We have received SO many compliments about the amazing flow and organization of that day and it was all because of Kristine! We are so blessed to have had Kristine King Events be a part of making our wedding day extra special.  I would highly recommend Kristine to anyone for any party, event or wedding. A million thanks!!" – Lauren Thomas, Bride

 

"My daughter Lauren and I hired Kristine King Events to help us plan Lauren's wedding. From the moment we met Kristine, she was the most professional and delightful wedding planner we could have imagined. She reviewed every detail of our wedding ideas from our budget to the wedding reception plans and she was on top of everything. We could not have had a better wedding planner than Kristine. She touched base with all the vendors prior to the wedding: the limousine driver, the photographer, the hotel where guests were staying, the florists, the venue, the caterer, etc. All details for the day of the wedding were provided to us in a timeline prior to the wedding day and it literally put our mind at ease.  

There simply are no words to explain her performance, except “she is amazing”. On the wedding day, Kristine helped our florist with the delivery of the flowers at the venue to make sure they were set up just the way Lauren wanted them. She also worked with the caterer at the venue setting up the Memory table and other special tables that Lauren designed to make sure that they were just right.

Kristine was with us until the very end, gathering the centerpieces from the tables when everyone left after the wedding, thanking us for allowing her to share in Lauren's special day. The wedding went off without a worry, thanks to Kristine King Events. I would highly recommend her to anyone getting married, having a corporate social, a shower, or any type of an event. Hire Kristine King Events. You will appreciate the service." – Paulina Thomas, Mother of The Bride

 

"I have worked over the last 19 years with many Wedding Planners/Coordinators and Kristine King is among the very best. Together we serviced a large wedding that involved many details. Kristine laid perfectly planned timelines; staying in close contact with all vendors throughout the several weeks prior to the wedding. Our final meeting at the venue with all the vendors, the couple and parents proved to her clients that she was more than on top of her game. They were able to relax and enjoy the last few weeks of their engagement with great confidence that it would be everything they had dreamed.

On the wedding day, every little detail went without a single flaw. Kristine was calm and in control of the timeline, and she made sure every detail that they desired was covered. Her friendly, positive personality and ability to work as a team player with all vendors made for a very enjoyable wedding for my team at All Things Beautiful. I would give Kristine King Events Five Stars for any event that needs careful planning, and am looking forward to working with her as a team in the future." – Kelly Steadman, All Things Beautiful


"Thank for you, Kristine King Events, for making our dream wedding a reality. Our wedding day was truly the best day of our lives. Thanks to you, every detail was perfect and executed flawlessly. You made us all feel so at ease from day one and confident that everything would run smoothly, which it did. The peace of mind you gave us allowed us to enjoy every single moment of the day, and the days leading up to it, and that is the greatest gift I could ever have received. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping to make our wedding day everything we hoped it would be, and more!" – Bekah Fry, Bride

"Kristine King Events surpassed our expectations from as early as the pre-planning process to the day of our wedding and after! From the start, Kristine guided us step-by-step in detail with enhancing our wedding concept, ceremony and reception details and was well organized in vendor coordination. We knew quickly we were in excellent hands. Within a few hours of our initial conversation, she quickly connected with our vendors, established point of contact with our wedding venue and established a clear timeline of deliverables and deadlines to get everything done for the bride, groom, and others.

Kristine always made herself available for questions by email, phone and even in person if needed for follow-up needs throughout the process. It was an effortless process as a bride and groom leading up to the wedding day! 

On the wedding day, we needed high organization and communications between the venue, vendors, our wedding party and families. Kristine communicated vigorously with all leading up to the wedding to ensure our wedding vision came to life as desired. She came in early on the day of the wedding to help with setup, connected with each vendor and kept everyone on schedule with our wedding timeline and needs throughout the day effortlessly. After the wedding, Kristine helped to alleviate our stress with post wedding coordination and follow-up!

We found Kristine friendly, creative, professional, knowledgeable on all aspects of wedding planning, highly organized, detail-oriented and open to collaboration. The wedding planning process felt like a partnership rather than a typical vendor experience and we appreciated that tremendously. I would definitely hire her again and recommend Kristine King Events to anyone seeking professional, effortless results and a truly collaborative experience for your wedding or event! – Zunilda El-Amin, Bride

 

"I had the wonderful pleasure of working with Kristine at a wedding over the weekend. She is one very organized and takes-care-of-everything kind of person. We both were in contact with the bride, who was not from the area, and had wanted ideas for a few local outdoor locations of her and her husband. Kristine googled and mapped out several places that were in our distance and allowable time, emailed us all the information that she found days before the event. During the whole course of the day,she was on top of her game and making sure every one was where they needed to be and taken care of. So much that when the reception was winding down, she asked if I needed anything, and I joked that I could use some tea, she went right over to the coffee bar and it was on my table when I got back from taking more pictures. I would definitely recommend Kristine's services to any one that is need of a professional wedding planner. You will not regret it. She is one of the best I have seen in my 30 plus years in the wedding photography." – Dale Folk, Photographer

"Kristine planned a beautiful co-ed baby shower for us with an adorable storybook theme. From the beginning she was extremely communicative and helpful with guiding us through her ideas and proposals. She was respectful of our budget and worked extremely well with a few other friends who wanted to lend a hand. The shower itself took place in a private room of an apartment building and it was truly gorgeous, with a tasteful color palette and really cute decorations - no detail was left uncovered. Our 50 guests was largely comprised of our friends in New York City, several of whom have young children of their own. Our guests raved about the event which is the clearest sign of a well planned and executed day! Kristine has a warm personality and her excitement and commitment is how she approaches every client opportunity. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for planning services in the future." – Anu & Bharani Rajakumar 

 

"Kristine King Events has been a dream to work with! I am a graphic designer and had the pleasure of working with Kristine on one of her client’s baby showers. Kristine was organized in all of her emails and clearly outlined what she would be needing from me. She was always quick to respond or answer any questions I had. Kristine had a clear vision for her client’s shower which made it easy for me, the designer, to execute the pieces they needed for the event. We even live in different countries and yet it was so easy to communicate with Kristine. As a vendor, I would highly recommend working with her. I look forward to working with her for future events." – Victoria, Victoria S. Design Co.

 

"I recently worked with Kristine King Events to design custom cookies for her storybook baby shower. Kristine was wonderful to work with, and very professional. I appreciated her responsiveness in coordinating the details of her order, and her follow up after the event to let me know the cookies were well-received.  She was efficient in confirming the order, and payment.  I look forward to working together again the future!" – Emily, The Cookie District

"Everyone knows that planning a wedding can be a stressful time so my mom and I early on enlisted Kristine from Kristine King Events to help us bring our very specific dream & vision to life. Kristine met with us in person as well as scheduled bi-weekly check in calls to review all planning details. She was the main point of contact with all of our vendors creating the plans, confirming all logistics and making sure every last detail went unmissed. Kristine was very organized and on top of everything which really kept my mom and I calm and at ease during this process. 

The day of our wedding Kristine had every last detail covered having coordinated with every last member of my wedding team and my wedding was exactly what I wanted it to be. My mom was able to enjoy time with our family and friends instead of stressing about little details all day. I would highly recommend Kristine King Events to help make your wedding day perfect! Thank you again Kristine for all of your help and going above and beyond on my special day!" – Elizabeth Reinaker, Bride

"I had a really great experience with Kristine King Events for my art gallery opening! Not only was Kristine a brilliant event planner and organizer but also a great source of creative ideas and support throughout the entire process. We met often to iron out details for the show and each time I walked away feeling exciting, supported, and reassured. Kristine was always a wealth of well-researched information and ideas, and very meticulous in covering all aspects of the event. It was an enormous relief to me to have this kind of structure and professional advice amongst all the overwhelming details and options that come with event planning. I really felt like she had my back and will be there to pick up whatever I’ve neglected to consider. 

Kristine King Events was my rock on the day of the show. She and her team handled everything from the very beginning to the very end and was very swift and effective with resolving unforeseen situations and unexpected problems. I really felt in good hands and I would trust them with my future events 100%. I definitely plan to do another show with Kristine King Events; they've really made the whole process a joyous and enjoyable experience.” – Annie Bao, Annie Bao Art

"Durning the initial planning stages for our wedding, I was feeling overwhelmed and unsure about some of the decisions I was making. What should the theme of the wedding be? Should I do a full-service bar or would self-serve make sense? What should the overall timeline be for the day of the wedding? I started to really doubt that I could pull the wedding off on my own. That's when a co-worker recommended that I reach out to Kristine King Events. Kristine took the time to talk through all of my concerns and answered all of my questions. She helped me think through how the events of the evening should flow and made some really thoughtful recommendations about how we could maximize our budget, without compromising our dream wedding. She was very knowledgeable, organized, and motivated to help make our day amazing. I can't say enough about this genuine, sweet-hearted woman. Without hesitation, I recommend her to anyone who is planning a wedding or family event. She's the best." - Jill Greer, Bride


"Creating and planning a fundraiser from start to finish is hard work.  I was so lucky to have Kristine by my side helping to build such a fun event for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  I could not have done the event without her!  She secured a location to host the event as well as reached out to local restaurants and businesses to garner both food, drink and raffle prize donations. The little touches she added to everything made it all look so beautiful and professional. With Kristine's help, we far exceeded my fundraising goal! I can't wait to start planning next year's event with Kristine!" Jennifer Risser, JDRF advocate

"I was fortunate to work with the team from Kristine King Events to throw my daughter's fifth birthday. Kristine was receptive to my ideas, patient with my inability to make decisions, as well as helpful in taking the burden off all the logistics. She handled everything far better than I could! Best of all, I was in the moment and really enjoyed myself and my daughter's party. Kristine's ability to pay attention to all of the small details from the execution and flow of the party to the creation of the custom pink & gem adorned placecards and the "birthday girl"tags for each party favor was amazing. Most importantly, the kids were occupied for the full two hours with fun activities and games. Camilla said it was "the best birthday ever" and her friends all had a really fun time. We look forward to working with Kristine for other special events in the near future! It was a really memorable day!" Margaret Billy, Birthday Girl's Mother
