Beautiful Occasions, Lasting Impressions!

Planning a wedding isn’t just about booking a florist, choosing a DJ, tastings, and gift registries us, it’s all about us telling your unique love story. We get to know our couples on a personal level and typically end up as friends. Of course we love planning and designing weddings but none of that matters without you. That’s why during our initial consultation, we take time to find out how you and your fiancé met, how you or they proposed, what you love about each other, and how we can sprinkle that throughout your wedding day. We don’t try to sell you on our packages; we show you how your love story can be told through the five senses to ensure the most amazing guest experience.

“It’s all about us telling your unique love story!”

Everything we do is intentional. From the planning platform we use, to how we design, and ensure that you book the best creative partners that will enhance your wedding vision. We plan, design, and live intentionally. What is your intention for your wedding? Is it to dance the night away with friends and family? Is it to be swept away seaside by the cool breeze while listening to your guests chat with each other about the amazing food? Maybe your intention is to just be with a few loved ones celebrating one of the most exciting moments in your life?

  • I hired Kara and Brian literally 27 days before my wedding day. I knew that I needed someone to help me on-site the day of the wedding, as the last thing I would want to do is get ready as well as run around making sure everything is set up correctly. Kara and Brian were just PERFECT! They both came to my rehearsal the day before and were excellent with taking charge and making sure everyone needed to be where... read more

  • Where do I start with Kara! From before we even officially hired her, she and I clicked immediately. She is so incredibly attentive, sweet, talented and easy to get along with! The thought of even planning a wedding before I had her gave me panic attacks. Having Kara along the way helped us relax and made sure everything was set for our big day. Kara is the absolute best wedding planner you could ever hope for. She helped us not... read more

  • First off, thank you Kara for all that you did for us and our wedding! Kara was absolutely awesome. She from the start explained to us what we needed, examples, what she can do, how we can meet, created last minute meetings to meet our needs, concerns, or questions. She took care of reminding us or “Reminding” me of what are the items we orders, planned, or agreed on because I was just too consumed with other every day items,... read more

We could not have done it without you both and all of the follow through was instrumental in making our beautiful day a reality. Kara kept us on track with our organized check list and went above and beyond with special requests made... read more

  • We had our wedding on 2/22/20, and I reached out to Kara the Lead planner two months prior to help plan our wedding. I was set on a small wedding so two months was a good time frame. I couldn’t help my self and went with a larger wedding then the original plan of 30 guest. Kara is very experienced and has great relationships with many vendors for all of our special request and location options! The day of our... read more

  • I'm not sure where to begin in praising Kara Cardinal as our wedding planner! She did a phenomenal job and helped give ideas, insight, and support when needed. My Husband and I are from Ohio and planned a wedding on Captiva Island in Florida. We didn't even see Kara until the day before the wedding, during rehearsal, even though we had many phone and email conversations. She was very personable and kept our whole, rowdy wedding... read more

  • Kara and Bryan of KC Wedding and Events were absolutely amazing! Our parents put us into contact with Bryan and from the beginning, they both put us at ease and made the wedding planning process a breeze. From the start we were stressed trying to plan the wedding from 1000 miles away, however Bryan and Kara took to our every need and were extremely considerate when we had a difficult time deciding on a venue. They contacted us often through... read more
