Elizabeth Layne Married couple on 13 Mar 2021
Kelly and her team are fantastic! Very professional, organized, responsive, creative, and always on top of everything! I'm SO thankful we had her through the entire wedding process. Kelly and team have so much knowledge and insight to very aspect of wedding planning - from flower colors to dance floor layout - she has all the answers. Her vendor contacts and recommendations were also a huge help. Every vendor we used was a Kelly recommendation and everything came together exactly how I dreamed. I felt so happy, relaxed and confident on my wedding day and a lot of that is because I had Kelly Doonan Events. In addition to being great at her job, Kelly is also so fun to work with - she's really funny and just a nice, good person.
Kyndall Krist Married couple on 05 Jun 2021
Kelly absolutely exceeded all of my expectations for a wedding/event planner. She went above and beyond and made sure everything went smoothly on my wedding day; I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Many guests commented that it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they’ve ever attended, which was especially flattering considering how the COVID-19 pandemic affected things, and I literally couldn’t have pulled it off without Kelly. She’s very organized, detail-oriented and super easy to get along with. Even months after the wedding, she still feels like a friend. Her guidance was invaluable to me the whole way through the planning process and her services were worth every penny! I cannot say enough positive things about Kelly and her team.
Laura Lee Seliger Married couple on 27 Feb 2021
Kelly was the perfect choice to plan my wedding. She took my vision and made it a reality. From start to finish, there was never a dull moment. Being an early 2021 wedding and planned during the pandemic, we scratched a fully planned wedding and completely started over about 4 months out. Kelly's work ethic was impeccable throughout the planning, and she put 110% into everything she did. KD had the resources needed to make my wedding become reality. She was able to provide guidance and made sure that every idea was thought through. She was always responsive and the best consultant and advocate when I needed a sounding board. Thanks to Kelly, planning my wedding was an amazing experience, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. She even made me consider wedding planning when it was done because I missed it so much when it was over!!

Kelly Doonan Events made my dream come true, and MORE! From always being on time to every meeting of ours, coming up with so many ideas that I would have never thought of and gifting us our favorite champagne on wedding day, Kelly went above and beyond to make this day special for us! She made the wedding planning process fun and seamless for me, which was so important. I was able to enjoy every single second and every single detail because she made sure of it. I wish I could plan another wedding with Kelly, because I would do it over and over again. I am so thankful to have had her and her amazing team with me on our wedding day! Thank you so much, Kelly Doonan Events!!
Blake Mueller Married couple on 18 Mar 2023
Working with Kelly was the absolute best decision I made during our wedding planning process. She made all of our dreams come true and executed on our vision flawlessly. We used her for both planning and design and she created the most beautiful day for us – better than I could have ever imagined. She cared about our wedding as if it were her own, constantly working to make sure every little detail was perfect, from the design board all the way to the actual execution of the day. I cannot recommend her and her team enough! She is meticulously organized, and was always one step ahead of me in the process. She works proactively to plan ahead and problem solve before problems even arise. She was always mindful of our budget and had creative solutions to help keep us on track. She was our biggest advocate during the process, making sure our voice was heard and that we were happy. She also has the best taste: I fully trusted her with the design of our day and she created the most beautiful reception, it was better than I could have ever imagined, she is incredibly talented. Everyone kept asking me during the process if I was stressed, and I truly never was: I knew that Kelly had every single detail under control. She made sure that I could enjoy all of the fun parts of wedding planning with none of the stress. From the design to the coordination to the execution on the wedding day, I gave Kelly my full trust and I am SO glad we did. She took the vision in my head and made it a reality. The day was perfection, her and her team worked tirelessly in the sun and heat to coordinate the day. They had the best attitude and always had a smile on their faces as they guided us through the day. Her detailed timeline kept everyone on track, and resulted in a flawless day. Kelly was more than a wedding planner, she became a true friend during the process. I truly cannot thank Kelly enough, and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone planning a wedding!
Mary Hannah Monroe Married couple on 05 Aug 2023
It is hard to find the words to describe the impact Kelly had on our wedding day and wedding planning process. She is organized, thoughtful, caring, and simply a pleasure to be around! Throughout the wedding planning process, Kelly always listened to us to understand our vision, and came up with the most incredible ideas to make the day perfect. Not one detail was missed! On our wedding day, Kelly and her team took care of everything so we could truly enjoy every minute. They are the absolute best and I cannot recommend them enough!!!
Kelley Wright Married couple on 11 Nov 2023
I got married on 11.11.23, and my sister got married on 07.08.23 (both of us had the opportunity to have Bri plan our weddings). Bri truly is the best! From the start I felt like I related to her because she was a former teacher. I knew she got me and my crazy schedule. I not only enjoyed getting to know Bri, but I truly look up to her as a mom, leader, and person. I feel like she handled every situation professionally. Everytime her name has been brought up around anyone that has crossed her path has said the nicest things. All of my friends mentioned how on top of it she was, and how fitting it was for me because I am so type A. Some of my friends haven't ever had a wedding planner send them the timeline personally- this was so nice because I did not have as many questions from my guests. Bri also handled my husband's family, and answered millions of questions from all of the people involved. Bri is responsive, kind, easy to work with, relatable, calm and FUN! I would absolutely recommend anyone to use Bri to plan their wedding or party!
