KME Client Reviews:
Courtney Symons of Shopify writes:Karyn was a dream come true to work with. She was our saving grace while planning, organizing, and executing a week-long event that served as the prize package for an entrepreneurial competition. In no time at all, she completely understood what we were trying to achieve, and came up with dozens of incredibly valuable and luxurious ways to give our winners the experience of a lifetime. Not only are Karyn and her team incredibly reliable and professional, but on a personal level Karyn is the ideal choice. I can’t stress enough how vibrant, enthusiastic, determined, and loyal Karyn has been throughout this entire process. You need to work with her and her team to fully understand what I mean, but I can assure you that you will not regret it. Thanks again Karyn, to you and your team, for everything you did for us.
As seen on Wedding Wire: Helene & Kyle write:Karyn was absolutely incredible in helping to plan my wedding. I have no idea how the day would have possibly gone off without her. She figured out every weakness in my venue and immediately found ways to work around it. Her ideas with respect to decor were so creative and well thought out. It’s clear she put a lot of time and effort into making our day exactly what we wanted. My only regret is that I hired her after I already had most of my vendors in place. The vendors I ended up being unhappy with were the ones I picked on my own, before I hired Karyn. All vendors who were brought on board by Karyn or with her approval were amazing. She knows what she is doing, is sweet, professional, tons of fun, and will make your wedding everything you want it to be and so much more! I cannot recommend her highly enough!
As seen on The Knot Figen & Joseph write:My husband and I were married at Oheka Castle in September of 2014. Karyn was HIGHLY reccomended to us by a couple that had also been married at Oheka the year before we were so we knew it was a must to meet her. From the initial contact we had with Karyn by phone to the first meeting at her office, late on a Sunday night to accomodate our hecitc schedule, I knew that she was absolutely the perfect person that was going to help bring our event to life. From the first moment we met, Karyn quickly helped us sketch out a vision for what we wanted from our wedding experience. Out of the gate, she handled all contract negotiations with Oheka, as she had extensive experience wtih this venue as well as a professional who was incredibly well respected by their busiesss office. There were details and possibilities available with the contract that I would never have known about on my own. Once the venue was set, we immediately began working on the design and details. My vision was to use Oheka’s backdrop and gold coast history as the stage to bring a vintage, Gatsby-esque vibe to life. Karyn completely understood what I wanted and quickly began curating the most stunning, mind-blowing components and details to achieve this vision. She spent countless hours with me on every single detail...from travelling to NYC to meet invitation designers to hunting to find the right musical ensemble to fit this vision. Her commitment to finding the EXACT, MOST PERFECT everything is unmatched! Karyn and I quickly built a bond that helped her to really understand and see what I wanted, what my style expectations were, and what my priorities would be for the event. She EXCEEDED my expectations in every possible way and went above and beyond every single time! There was never a time that Karyn wasn’t available to speak wtih me, text me, respond to an email, give me candid advice, help me to make a difficult decision, evaluate every details, show me the universe of options and possibilites on details, and even go so far as to really support me when the process got emotional,too. Our wedding is still being talked about among our friends and families as the most magnificent wedding or event that any of them have ever been to and ever expect to attend! Her capabilities can easily be seen in her magnificent portfolio of events, one more incredible than the next. She is always ahead of the trend and her creations are always the talk of the industry. What I hope this review has done is told the story about who she is - an incredibly professional event designer, a true visionary, a make-it-happen go-getter, a stop-at-nothing genius, a briiliant event executor and world-class star! I will always be grateful to Karyn for the masterpiece that she created for us and the memories that will last us a lifetime!!!
As seen on The Knot: Jhoanna & Michael write:I was reluctant to hire a wedding planner, specially since once I started looking I saw reviews of many in the tristate area that seem way too pricey for the services they offered. Thank goodness for my husband who made me realize that planning a wedding in less than 8 months was a challenge we needed lots of help with and lots of expert advice on. From the first meeting, Karyn made all of our ideas seem possible and she also made us realize what truly worked best for us. Our wedding was perfect, needless to say a year and half later we still keep in touch with Karyn and she has become a friend who we will always keep in our lives. We now have a 3 month old baby boy and my husband is already talking about celebrating his 1st birthday and would love to hire Karyn once again to make it memorable. Karyn goes far and beyond to please, but also she allows your wedding to be a reflection of who you are as a couple and she guides you with her creative skills and the end result is simply a day to remember. I will always thank her for helping my husband plan a wonderful surprise for me on our wedding day. She found the signer of the father-daughter song per my husband’s wishes and they flew him in and had him sing the song at our wedding; needless to say tears of joy were shed and when I asked my husband about the surprise, he simply replied “Could have not done it without Karyn”. Forever happy, Jhoanna G.
As seen on The Knot Elizabeth & Ken write:Karyn’s services were invaluable. She thought of things we never would have leading up to the wedding. Her professional help allowed my husband and I to enjoy every moment of our wedding and not worry about anything else! Karyn is an organized, professional planner that I would recommend to anyone! She saved the day!
As seen on The Knot Michelle writes:We hired Karyn to be our wedding planner for our daughter’s wedding in May, 2015 at Oheka Castle in New York. Our daughter lives in Pennsylvania and we live in California. Due to the distance, we were only able to meet with Karyn in person a few times, but she did an excellent job of making the most of those visits. Most of our communication was by email or phone. Karyn was very available and responsive. All of her suggestions and recommendations were fantastic. Karyn is a great combination of straightforward, understanding, hardworking, funny and professional. Many of our guests told us that the wedding was by far the best wedding they had ever attended. For our family, it was a magical day that we will never forget. Karyn did a wonderful job of bringing it all together. We highly recommend Karyn.
As seen on The Knot Diane & Brian write:I don’t know if I can fully put into words how amazing Karyn was throughout the wedding planning process as well as its execution, but I’ll try. Hiring Karyn was easily the best decision we made for our wedding. My husband and I were torn about hiring a planner, but when we sat down with Karyn we knew instantly that she would bring so much to our day. From recommending vendors, creating timelines, helping with DIY projects, always being there to bounce ideas off of, and so much more she truly gives you her all. She completely put our minds at ease over all the details, big and small. Our wedding was absolutely amazing and it was largely due to her. If you’re thinking of using a wedding planner I wouldn’t use anyone else. She is professional, knowledgable, resourceful, innovative and has a killer personality to top it all off. I couldn’t imagine our wedding without her. Use her-you won’t regret it!
Dear Karyn, I can’t even thank you enough for all of your help with our wedding. Thank you for your time, your patience, and your attention to detail. From the invitations, to the flowers, to the programs, escort & menu cards... Everything was beyond perfection. And of course, most importantly, thank you for being there on our wedding day and allowing me to relax and enjoy the day knowing that you had everything under control. You made the entire wedding planning experience so much more enjoyable and less stressful for me, and I am so grateful. Hope all is well! Elizabeth and Bill Moloney
As seen on The Knot Lauren & Joseph write:Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and early on in the process, my husband and I realized that it was a lot for us to handle. We both work long hours and it seemed that planning a wedding would be another job. We wanted to enjoy the process and not feel the pressure and anxiety that so many couples experience when planning a wedding. Also, being a bride who had lost her mother meant the process would be considerably emotional and I knew that I needed help. On the recommendation of a friend, we hired Karyn to assist us in planning and designing our perfect wedding day. It was the best money we spent on our wedding. Karyn helped us navigate through vendors, negotiate contracts, plan menus, create the feeling and atmosphere that we wanted. We worked with her for a year and she became my trusted advisor and friend. There was no task too big or small that she wasn’t there to help with. When I panicked, she answered the phone and calmed my worries. When I needed to vent my frustrations, she was there to lend an understanding ear. She does so much more than just provide a wedding planning service. Our June 2011 wedding at Glen Cove Mansion could not have been more perfect. I am honest about my perfectionism, and even though he won’t admit it, my husband is a perfectionist too. There was not one facet of the wedding that I regretted or would’ve changed. The floral design, menus, favors, linens, up lighting, cake, everything was executed perfectly. I spent the day completely relaxed and at ease and knew that every detail would be handled. If there were any issues, I sure didn’t know about them and they were resolved. The entire wedding weekend was executed perfectly and my husband and I received nothing but rave reviews from even our pickiest of guests. After 3.5 years and many, many friends getting married, stressing and fighting, having vendor issues, sleepless nights, even running around on their own wedding days to set things up or correct issues, I realize that having hired Karyn was the best decision we made. Although many doubted why we needed a planner, we certainly understood when we saw how beautifully everything came together and ultimately, how happy we were on our wedding day. After all, isn’t that all any bride and groom wants? So, while most brides say they would never again plan a wedding, I can’t undertand that feeling. It was wonderful and that was because of Karyn. The process, the day, she lifted all the usual stresses and it was the best experience I could have asked for.
Dear Karyn, There are no words to adequately express how thankful I am that you were my wedding planner. It’s infinitely impossible to put together a wedding alone and while I know Joe helped as much as he could it was always hard not having my mother. Your diligence, kindness and attention to detail made my day beautiful and stress free. I could have never done it without you. Thank you Lauren (& Joe too!)
Dear Karyn, For the past few days (and I’m sure more to come), Nicole and I have been recalling the events of our wonderful day. We are truly blessed to have had such a beautiful wedding on such a perfect day. All of the planning and hard work came together seamlessly and the end result was simply breathtaking. There is not anything that I would have changed about our wedding. We keep getting compliments on how amazing the wedding was and how incredibly beautiful the venue, so I feel that I must extend a compliment and my sincere gratitude your way since you were very much a part of it. You really went above and beyond and helped fine tune all the details. Everything went smoothly and flawlessly and we could not have done so without you. Thank you very much for your help, patience, love and support. Best, Dylan & Nicole
What can we say about Karyn that hasn’t already been said. She is an amazing person and a true professional! Karyn was responsible for putting together the most beautiful weekend wedding my wife and I could ever ask for. Every single detail was perfect, she helped connect us with the best Chef on the East Coast in Tom Schaudel, she dedicated countless hours of her time to pull every single detail together without question, she put fires out left & right without us having a hint so we both could maintain our focus during our wedding. Karyn is the best event planner one could ever ask for; our wedding invitations and favors were designed by Karyn which had our guests raving how unique and beautiful both were. She connected us with a top notch photographer and was dedicated to making sure each and every detail went flawless leading up to and the day of our wedding. Our wedding couldn’t have been anymore perfect; both my wife & I owe much of this to Karyn, her vision and her dedication. We recommend Karyn Michael Events humbly, if you need a planner, make sure you get in touch with Karyn Michael Events, you will be extremely satisfied! Cassandra and Tim
Dearest Karyn & Staff, Thank you so very much for doing a beautiful job on our sons engagement party. Your talent and ideas are truly a gift. My home looked like it should have been in a magazine. Your photographer took great shots. He made me wish I could eat that food all over again. Thank you for making my dreams of an elegant affair a reality. Love you, Maria Lynn & Jimmy
Dear Karyn, I honestly don’t know how to thank you enough for all of your hard work and honest enthusiasm! None of this could have happened without you - thank you for making this truly the happiest day of my life. It has been a pleasure getting to know you as a friend and work with you. You have been amazing! Thank you, thank you!! Love, Rachel.
