If someone were to ask what regrets I had during the planning process, my response would be not hiring Keriann and With Love Events sooner. We met with Keriann about four months before our wedding and had most of our vendors hired. Our venue, The Jam Handy in Detroit, is a blank canvas for any couple to decorate in any style they want. When we met with Keriann, I was completely stumped on what our décor would look like. I had inspiration and some ideas, but I was so overwhelmed and stressed about it. Her demeanor calmed us down, so we immediately booked her as a month-of coordinator. She instantly went to work on our timeline and sent me inspiration photos back and forth via email. After analyzing the vision I had, she recommended the best lighting and décor vendor, Detroit By Design. Then she facilitated the quote and worked with the extremely talented Rich Rice to create a proposal for our lighting. After several exchanges, we found the lighting I dreamed about having at the wedding. In addition, she guided us through the finer details of the day that we didn’t think about, like whether or not we wanted our buffet line to be single or double sided, or perfectly executing a sparker exit complete with ways to safely extinguish our fires. These are little things, yes, but details that a stressed out couple can often forget, so attention to detail is key in a wedding planner/coordinator, and she’s on point. She also confirmed every delivery/arrival time of every vendor on our behalf, which was so helpful and gave me a chance to spend less time worrying about that the week before our wedding. She was so gracious when I let her know the night before the wedding that she wouldn’t have too much to set up décor on our wedding day. Since we were there setting up tables, I got a little setup happy and did it myself, which I don’t regret. I am confident Keriann would have done a fabulous job with it. On the day of the wedding, she was so warm, welcoming, and attentive. It can’t be easy working with stressed out brides, but because of her and my amazing team of vendors, I was stress free. She was professional and patient when we got behind in the timeline but she was persistent and we were able to stay on track—and I’ll forever appreciate that. These are personality traits that great wedding planners possess—and Keriann ranks among the greats!
