kind words

Here is what some of our past clients and their families have to say about Simply Stunning Events:

Kristin Kaplan and her Simply Stunning Events team was single-handedly the best investment we made in our wedding.   Starting with our very first meeting together, Austin and I have always been impressed by Kristin’s organization, poise, enthusiasm, and dedication to her clients.  During this planning process, Austin lived in a different city, and Kristin was always considerate and accommodating to our schedules.  She made herself available whenever Austin was in town, for she knew it was important to me to involve the groom in this process.  During the wedding weekend, Kristin and her team made sure every single detail we had wanted to incorporate was executed.  Many of our family members and wedding guests commented on how smooth our wedding events ran and how professional Kristin and her team conducted themselves. Equally as important, Austin and I were approached by several of our other vendors, including the band, videographers, photographers, and special performers, with praise and kind words about Kristin and her team.  They all said that Kristin was a wonderful communicator and that things ran smoothly because everything was so well planned out.  That made us feel so happy, for through this process, Kristin has become our good friend, and we are so proud of her work! All in all, the wedding was beautiful and we couldn’t have done it without Kristin and her Simply Stunning team.  Thank you guys so much – you are the best! ~Karen & Austin (May 15th, 2011)

Kristin: Kevin and I wanted to thank you for everything you did to our wedding day the best day of our lives. You and your team handled every detail beautifully, were so organized, and I didn’t worry about a thing! – Kristin & Kevin (October 22nd, 2011)

Kristin is the best thing to happen to my wedding. There were many wedding vendors that I loved, and some that I adored, but I could. not. live. without Kristin. She let me make all my crazy plans and 12 page timelines– and became my sanity when I couldn’t handle any more details with 60 days to go. She was a go-to when making choices about colors, decor, and the “feeling” of our event. A planner is absolutely essential to any wedding and I have no idea how people get married without one. Kristin was strong and stood her ground when it came to keeping everyone on schedule during our incredibly hot wedding day. She ensured that we were exactly where we needed to be, and that everything went according to plan. She is fantastic. ~Sarah & Ryan (August 14th, 2010)

I can’t begin to tell you how many compliments we have gotten on the beauty & perfection of the wedding!  Whitney certainly picked the right wedding planner!  You and your team did an incredible job and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  My daughter had her dream wedding come true!  We appreciate your diligence and hard work – you are top-knotch!!! ~Mother-of-the-Bride (May 19th, 2012)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have kept me sane and been my saving grace! You are an amazing coordinator and now a wonderful friend. You made a special time in my life unforgettable because I was able to relax and enjoy it! ~ Jenny & Tim (June 6th, 2009)

I really want to thank you for what a tremendous job you did at the farm.  I know it was not easy coordinating that many people and in such a different environment – but you pulled it off flawlessly.  I could not have had such an incredible wedding without you.  It was certainly a night I will not ever forget, and I have you and your awesome team to thank for that.  Not only were ya’ll super organized, calm, and collected the entire time – but ya’ll made it fun for me and my family by lifting the worry and stress that comes with throwing big events.  You are priceless and I can’t thank you enough. ~Whitney & Jacob (May 19th, 2012)

I would highly recommend Simply Stunning Events to any bride planning a wedding!  Not only did she take much needed stress off of me (and the groom), but also helped plan details that I wouldn’t have even thought about!  Having Kristin help throughout our planning process brought a much-needed peace of mind to both of us, and you just can’t put a price on that.  We couldn’t have asked for more! ~Melissa & James (September 20th, 2008)

Thank you for all of your help over this last crazy month. You provided guidance, answered all questions promptly, and made this a chill experience -even with the crazy weather ride. We wanted a planner so that we could relax, enjoy our guests and each other on our wedding day and we did! ~Jennifer & Chris (March 26th, 2011)

Kristin Kaplan was AMAZING in the days leading up to my wedding as well as on the big day! She put a great deal of thought into my wedding and was always there to offer up alternatives when my plans may not have been working out like I had wished. The day of my wedding, she took care of every little detail and I spent the entire day in such a relaxed mood because I knew that she had everything under control. She and her team were great that day, and I cannot thank them enough for all of their hard work. I know Kristin worked extremely hard to make sure that I got the wedding I dreamed of, and you can tell that she is extremely talented at what she does.  She is truly an awesome wedding planner! ~ Ashley & Trey (January 16th, 2010)

Kristin: Thank you so much for all of the amazing work you put into our wedding. We had the best night and we have you and your team to thank for a lot of that! We couldn’t have chosen a better planner! – Elizabeth & Jonathan (October 1st, 2011)

We worked with Kristin at Simply Stunning for several months leading up to the wedding, and she far exceeded our expectations. She was extremely responsive throughout the entire process, constantly keeping us updated on deadlines, payments, and the little details that we didn’t think about. She always seemed to answer our emails the same day and was very flexible for in-person meetings. When we did meet with her in person, she always honored our busy schedules but made sure to cover all the items we wanted. Her vendor recommendations and general suggestions for the wedding were both helpful and appreciated. During the actual wedding weekend, Kristin (and her assistants) handled everything gracefully, and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. She pretty much ran the show, and we just had to make sure we showed up. We would definitely recommend Kristin to anyone looking for a smooth wedding and thorough planning! ~Kimberly & Eric (December 31st, 2011)

I would recommend the month-of planning with Ashley Klein to anyone who wants to handle the wedding planning on their own but enjoy the actual wedding day. It was so nice to have a professional to call when all the details got to be too much in the weeks before the wedding and sit with me during my final run-through of the reception. Having been a first time bride Ashley thought of small but very important details I didn’t know I had to ask for/request or that was the bride’s responsibility- not the venue’s. On my wedding day, if I asked for something it was taken care of- even if I was the one who made the decision months ago and was now changing my mind. Ashley got to know me and per my request made decisions based on my taste and only asked me few questions so I could relax. I had peace of mind on my wedding day and as a result I was able to enjoy it along with my family and friends. ~Ashley & Sam (May 7th, 2011)

Ashley and the Simply Stunning Events team made our wedding day just PERFECT! Throughout the planning process they responded quickly and made everything so much easier. On our wedding day, we were worry free because they took care of every detail. I would absolutely recommend Simply Stunning to anyone looking for a blissful, stress free wedding day! ~Katie & Robby (April 30th, 2011)

I had such a wonderful experience with Simply Stunning Events. Alex really took care of me! The company prides itself on providing detailed checklists while being in constant communication with you. From the first time we met, Alex took the time to fully understand my expectations and helped me to make the right decisions on how to make my dreams a reality. She often thought of things that I didn’t and guided me in what would make the best sense overall. I would 100% recommend Simply Stunning Events and they will make your life soo much more relaxing. I truly believe I got to enjoy my wedding more because of Alex. I literally was not worried about one thing. I loved that! She kept me in the loop, but never did I feel burdened by my wedding, just excited because I knew it would run perfectly with Alex’s help. ! I think the unparalleled organization, attention to detail, and experience in the industry makes this company invaluable. Simply Stunning Events was hands-down the best money I spent on my wedding!! ~Christie & Taylor (September 18th, 2011)

I just wanted to express my deepest gratitude for your guidance and work with Jenny’s wedding. I have been waiting a long time for this day and your experience and efforts were key to making it memorable. When I saw you jumping up and down behind the photographer, trying to get the small children to smile for pictures, I knew this was more than just a job for you. You really care about the families you work with, and we are deeply grateful for your passionate efforts. ~ Gipson (father of the bride)

Working with Simply Stunning Events was amazing from start to finish. Planning a wedding is every bit of hard work that I was told it would be but it was so great to know that someone else was helping to ensure that we took care of all of the important tasks and actually enjoyed the day. Alex was on top of it all and was a great teammate in the whole process. I would most definitely recommend her for any bride who needs help with coordinating all of the wedding logistics for the month before the wedding! Alex, thanks for being awesome! ~ Carlie & Todd (June 5th, 2011)

Kristin with Simply Stunning Events saved me tons of time in the planning stages. I was not one of those brides that wanted to do research and a lot of the leg-work in planning. When we hired Kristin, my stress level went way down and the productive planning went way up! She was professional, level-headed, interested in helping me truly personalize the wedding, and full of cool and unique ideas. Plus, she was an essential part in helping me find vendors that suited our needs. I couldn’t have had the wedding I wanted without her help! ~Robin & Stephen (May 16th, 2009)

We want to thank Kristin for all the hard work at making our wedding day wonderful. I am sure it wasn’t easy to pull off this feat without any hitches considering the venue, cake, and caterer suddenly changed two weeks prior to our wedding day. There was not a single detail that was missed, especially with so many last minute changes. She was there for me the entire day and I couldn’t have asked for a better, more organized, and completely calm person who in the end also became a dear friend to me. I know that we would not have made it through the day without her and her team’s hard work and dedication that was delivered on a sincere personal level. ~Jamie & Chris (February 21st, 2009)

When I first “met” Kristin over the phone, I instantly knew she had the best laid-back personality and enough industry knowledge to manage my type-A personality and restrictive budget. Not only was she completely patient, responsive and resourceful during our almost year-long contract period, she was friendly, honest, and has an great sense of humor. And when it came to the day of, she was professional, courteous to our wedding party and guests, efficient, cool and calm, and everything you wish for in a coordinator. I could go on and on, but I’ll say this: don’t think twice about hiring this woman, do it! Thanks so much KC! ~Raina & Jeff (June 27th, 2009)

Kristin, again let me tell you that everything from the rehearsal to the end of the reception was wonderful and amazing!!! Thank you again for being so good at what you do. ~Linda (mother of the bride)

Our day would NOT have been possible without Kristin Kaplan from Simply Stunning Events. We hired her for her “month of” package because we wanted to do the planning part ourselves, but wanted a professional to handle the details and make sure everything went smoothly. She’s everything you could ever want for an event planner, and so much more. She won me over with her detailed timelines, wealth of knowledge, and total professionalism. She and her (wonderful) assistants turned our plans into a PERFECT reality. She is utterly amazing. Could never have done it without her! ~Marianne & Chris (June 26th, 2010)

Words can not express how wonderful of a job Kristin did in planning our wedding.  From the very beginning to the very end, she guided us and brought our vision of a simple, backyard wedding to life.  Kristin was born to plan weddings.  She is truly a breath of fresh air and by far the best investment we made.  She WILL go above and beyond all of your expectations.  We are so happy to have met and shared our special day with her. ~Lesli & John (September 19th, 2009)

Kristin: Thank you for all of your help and all of your detailed organization! You were worth every penny and then some! Thank you so much for helping us make this day perfect. ~AJ & Rory (September 4th, 2010)

Here is what some local vendors have to say about working with Simply Stunning Events:

It’s pretty simple really: every wedding that I’ve worked with Kristin has run smoothly and brilliantly.  The details are all handled carefully and tastefully, and the bride and groom are more relaxed knowing that they don’t have to sweat the countless tiny decisions that cumulatively have a huge impact on everyone’s experience.  Kristin is perpetually cheerful, calm, and professional.  I look forward to the weddings that I shoot with Kristin, because I know that its going to be beautiful and I’ll have all of the coordination I need to ensure the best possible photos for the client. ~Evan Baines, Photographer

As a floral event designer I’ve had the opportunity to work with several of Nashville’s wedding coordinators, and there’s no one I recommend as wholeheartedly as Kristin and Simply Stunning Events. Her team’s attention to detail, flawless execution and ability to handle the big pressure moments of a wedding with grace and style are but a few of the reasons that I believe that Simply Stunning is hands down the finest planning company not only in Nashville, but the greater south. ~Hillary Yeager, Brocade Designs

With Simply Stunning Events you can plan on a flawless wedding. Every meeting I have had with Kristin has been on time, well planned, and I have good ideas of color, flavors, and feel like I have the tools to meet with her clients efficiently. The week of the wedding also goes smoothly because everyone knows where to go and what time to be there. Her team members are also very professional. Thank you for making it easier as a vendor to serve your clients. ~Shara Lunn, Cakes by Shara

I have worked with Kristin on various weddings and she by far has been one of my favorite vendors to work with. She has a passion for what she does and it shines through her work. She is very organized and it shows. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a wedding planner! ~Rachel Short, Sage Florals
