“Booking Kendall was the best decision we ever made! After multiple postponements and a location change, we needed to plan a wedding on a much tighter budget and timeframe. During our initial phone screening with Kendall, it quickly became clear that she was the perfect person to plan our dream wedding. Throughout the planning process, Kendall was always one step ahead–reaching out to our vendor and communicating changes to ensure we were getting exactly what we had asked for. She was always so calm–but we never mistook her chill personality for not taking her job seriously; if anything, having a calm yet detailed and determined wedding planner was the perfect recipe for a well organized wedding. And when our big weekend finally arrived, it was better than we could have ever expected. Even with all of the conversations with Kendall and reviewing every detail, I still wasn’t how everything would come together. Upon entering our venue, every detail we discussed was accounted for and in the right place. It was like Kendall had taken all of the ideas that were in my head and brought them to life. I probably went up and hugged her multiple times that night, because we had lost all hope that our special day would ever happen; until that night. Kendall made all of our dreams come true, and I recommend her over and over. Please do yourself a favor and BOOK HER!

“Kendall was hands-down the best money we spent on our wedding. We first found our venue, then decided we should explore getting a planner, and Kendall came recommended by our venue. We hired her 11 months prior to our wedding. She was profoundly helpful in a number of ways but first and foremost, her knowledge of and relationships with vendors in the Northern California area. She had recommendations for vendors of all types, would give us multiple options and allow us to review and decide. Every additional vendor that we hired because of Kendall turned out to be phenomenal. There are many details to keep straight with planning such a big and important event, and Kendall never missed a single one. She also gave us wonderful advice at every turn; she is so experienced and has helpful suggestions for any idea or concept you might have. She does a great job of meeting you where you are at, supporting you in making your own decisions, and for those reasons and more, I never once felt pressured. We were totally clueless as to how to plan a wedding, and Kendall made us feel so at ease and organized our thoughts and concerns with the skill of a true professional. She is kind, personable, and very easy to talk to; I can’t recommend her enough! On top of all of that, she was a calm, cool, and collected presence at our wedding. She kept the night on track and ran the whole event with precision, checking in on my partner and I multiple times. Our bridal party, families, and even some guests made comments to us after the wedding, sharing how impressed they were with Kendall and her team. I would absolutely hire her again! Thank you, Kendall!”

“Kendall was recommended to us by friends for our backyard wedding and we couldn’t be happier that we went with her. From the very beginning, Kendall demonstrated a high level of integrity, suggesting we go with the partial planning package rather than the full planning since we already had the venue and she could tell we wanted to be involved. She could have easily taken more money for the same level of work and we appreciate her honesty for that. As far as the actual planning goes, she was very helpful in finding a variety of vendors, something that was critical in putting on a larger backyard wedding. From food to rentals and everything in between, she had a wide array of contacts for us to choose from and helped initiate conversations with them as needed. When it came down to the final weeks, Kendall was INCREDIBLE. We had some issues with various vendors and she was right there to put out every fire on our behalf, including finding a new dance floor 9 days before the ceremony and having all table linens sent to her house so she could personally prepare all of them. Overall our wedding day went unbelievably smooth. We have gotten so many compliments from guests on how well everything flowed and what a great time they had. Kendall and her team are a huge reason for that. We couldn’t have been happier with Kendall and highly recommend her for your event.”

“Kendall and her team were hands down the best investment we made for our wedding. She handled all of the planning and day of activity with ease. Because of her, we were able to sit back and enjoy our wedding. We cannot recommend her enough!”

“Kendall was simply amazing!!! From the first phone call, I knew instantly it would be a perfect fit for us. She was a dream to work with and I couldn’t have asked for better support for all things wedding planning as she has so much experience and guided us through the whole process while making helpful suggestions. On the day of the wedding, I knew I trusted her 100% with all details, setup, and vendors as her attention to detail, organization, and eye for design was always spot on! She made everything look fabulous and go so smoothly which allowed us to sit back and enjoy our special day. We felt truly cared for and can’t thank you enough Kendall for making our day so special! :)”

“There are not enough words to describe how phenomenal Kendall is as a Wedding Planner!!! I will be forever grateful to have found her and have her part of this wedding planning journey. From the moment I first spoke with her, I knew I had found my person and we were in the best of hands. She made the entire process so fun and easy and I just absolutely loved working with her. She went above and BEYOND on our Wedding Day, being at the venue from 8 am until midnight making sure every little detail was perfect for our day. She is worth every penny and more and truly was my favorite vendor we had as part of our wedding. We couldn’t have done it without Kendall and we just love that she is such a huge part of our story. I would work with Kendall over and over again and recommend her to anyone! She has a heart of gold and is born to be a wedding planner. We love Kendall!!”

“We hired Kendall as our day-of-coordinator for our vow renewal at Park Winters this past weekend. She was an absolute dream to work with. From the first moment we met her, we were impressed by her organized, professional, confident, competent, kind, and calm nature. This first impression was upheld, if not exceeded, the entire time we worked with her. She is extraordinary and made our special day seamless. We can’t even tell you whether there were any hiccups in the flow/timeline/vendor delivery – if there were, Kendall handled them with efficiency and without us even catching wind of it. We promise you, she is the person you want planning/ coordinating your day!! Hire her, you will not regret it!!”

“Kendall is the best wedding planner! She gave us the peace of mind that we needed for our big day! We entrusted 100% of our wedding day to her, and she definitely made sure that every aspect of our wedding was amazing! She devoted her time and energy to running our big day seamlessly! She is very creative, organized, detail-oriented, dependable, honest, understanding, professional, and trustworthy! We love working with her, and she took care of our every last-minute wedding day change and made our big day go smoothly! She helped us with planning, checked in with us to help us stay organized, suggested great ideas for our wedding, and communicated and worked well with all of our vendors. We are so happy that we picked her as our wedding planner. We definitely recommend Kendall Melissa Events!”

“Kendall was the best money we spent towards our wedding! She made the planning experience so much less stressful and we always looked forward to meeting with her! She also has great contacts and connections of her own to recommend to you which is key. She was really good at understanding the vision we had and bringing that to life. Thank you Kendall for everything!”
“I do not know what we would’ve done without Kendall and her team (honestly, probably eloped). My husband (EEK!) + I dealt with a lot of issues with our venue and vendors leading up to and post big day and Kendall was (and continues to be) a fantastic person to lean on. She is so organized and professional and handled every hiccup so we didn’t really have to. She also treated us like friends, which really made the whole process more enjoyable. Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be (and more)! Kendall impressed our whole (huge) wedding party during the rehearsal – she got us in and out swiftly, and we all knew what we needed to do on the big day. The day itself was also not without hiccups (again, vendors) but Kendall made sure we were aware of all issues and kept everything on track. Again, my friends were impressed that Kendall and her staff handled everything, and that we didn’t have to clean up after the event! She has been an advocate and friend throughout this process and I am so grateful that she agreed to work with us. She was the best investment we made for such an important party. Thank you, lady!”
