Absolutely wonderful experience! From all the way across the country our wedding never really felt stressful with Wendy and our day couldn’t have been more perfect. She took a jumbled bunch of ideas we had and turned them into the best day of our lives. She made sure we were always in line with our budget and knew what was more important to us and knew where we could cut back on things. She’s the easiest person to work with and I would recommend her services (and already have) to anyone I know that need them and even when they think they don’t

Wendy has been a phenomenal planner! From start to finish, she was on the ball with decisions to be made, payments that were due, and any incidentals along the way. Wendy has a vast knowledge of Asheville vendors which helped us get the best vendors possible at a price we were willing to pay. The day of the wedding really could not have gone smoother. We would hands down choose Wendy again!

Wendy’s title of wedding coordinator is not an accurate reflection of the many roles she plays in the wedding planning process and on the “big day”. Wendy is a friend, part of the family, a defendant, liaison, stress alleviator, facilitator and part miracle worker. To say that Wendy is amazing is an understatement. Wendy has strong organizational skills, impeccable attention to detail, a calming presence, and a keen ability to navigate you through all the nuances of wedding planning. She made every step of the planning process enjoyable and allowed us to have a worry-free wedding day.

Wendy is detail-oriented, attentive, and easy to work with. Trying to plan a wedding long distance is a challenge, but Wendy made our planning experience significantly easier. Wendy truly went above and beyond to make sure our event went smoothly. All of my vendors complimented her organization and thoroughness, which I feel speaks volumes for her professionalism and commitment to her clients.

I did not go into wedding planning with the idea of hiring a planner or day-of-coordinator...I figured I could orchestrate the whole thing myself (with a little help from family and friends). I could not be happier that saner minds convinced me otherwise, and that my search led me to Wendy. She listened to and understood my vision, and saw to it that it was carried out. Wendy is professional, calm, adaptable, incredibly hard working, organized, and above all lovely to be around. She went above and beyond, and made everything go so, so smoothly, and I now heartily endorse hiring help for your wedding coordination!

Wendy is amazing! When searching for a wedding planner, we could only afford someone for the day of planning. Wendy’s rates were extremely competitive in an expensive market, and she greatly exceeded our expectations. Wendy met with us a few times before our wedding, and helped us to set up a wedding with challenging logistics. Wendy helped to keep us organized, think of those tricky “have you thought of this” scenarios, and rolled up her sleeves when we encountered some challenging situations with our vendors. I appreciate her positive attitude, attention to detail, and willingness to go above and beyond her responsibilities. We had a magical wedding day and I owe a lot of that to Wendy.

My fiance and I cannot thank Wendy enough for her expertise in helping us plan the perfect destination in a large home atop the Smoky Mountains. Wendy listened to our hopes and offered valuable suggestions that brought our vision to achievable reality. Her calm and patient demeanor, coupled with a penchant for organization, enabled Wendy’s quick response to challenges that could have become obstacles...right down to a last-minute seamstress for an unexpected wedding dress alteration.
Wendy’s coordination on our wedding day was sure-handed and confident: she monitored vendors, coordinated seamless shifts in location in changing weather conditions, and responded with compassion to our fluctuating emotional needs. We never thought a small second wedding could involve so many moving pieces, but with Wendy’s skillful presence those pieces evolved into just the wedding celebration we envisioned.

Wendy gave me the perfect mountain elopement. She partners with amazing people to make your big day special. Wendy will find all the options YOU are wanting for your wedding day. Fair pricing for such a magical outcome. If you are considering Wendy for your big day, choose her! She will take the stress of planning away from you. Wish I could go back and do it again; I wouldn’t change a thing!

We are so incredibly thankful and glad we chose Wendy to help plan our wedding. I had no idea where to begin and Wendy took my hand and walked me through it. She was so much more than a planner, she was a friend, listening ear, errand runner, peace keeper and anything else we needed.

Wendy made the planning a LOT less stressful by keeping us organized. She made it easy for us to stay focused on a few tasks at a time and not get overwhelmed. She made a complete budget spreadsheet, based on a “comfortable number” we chose and helped us to decide what should be spent where.

Her knowledge and relationships with local vendors was key in interviewing and choosing who would be a part of our day.I loved that Wendy offered to be there as little or as much as we wanted so we were still the decision makers. She was prepared for anything on our wedding day. I could relax and enjoy the day knowing that Wendy was there to make it all run smoothly and it did!

I had been planning my dream wedding since I was 9 and believed I had thought of everything. It wasn’t until the big day that I realized how much I hadn’t thought of. Wendy not only helped me envision, plan, and organize my dream wedding, she also thought of the little things that never crossed my mind when I was busy thinking about the big picture.

Our wedding was a destination event at the Hotel Hershey. It was a magnificent success and much of the credit goes to Wendy Knowles for her experience and planning expertise. She was a consummate professional with a calming and soothing presence during a sometimes stressful time leading up to the wedding. The day of the event she was an infallible presence who took care of everything so that we could spend our day enjoying the wedding.

As our wedding was at our farm it meant major planning. Everything from the salt and pepper shakers to latrines. Wendy kept us organized and took away so much stress from our already busy lives. Added to the normal stress of planning a wedding we also had the pressure of having the Martha Stewart “Weddings” magazine covering the wedding. There was also some behind the scenes drama going on with one of the suppliers during the event that we never knew about until 2 weeks after the wedding. Wendy smoothed everything over perfectly allowing us to enjoy this once in-a-lifetime event.
