“We Will Always Remember Kelly As The One Who Made Our Wedding Perfect”

Kelly was a total life savor! Our previous (non-professional) wedding planner backed out at the last second after realizing being a day of coordinator was too much for her to handle. Our photographer recommended Kelly and it was a blessing in disguise. We hired her three days prior to our wedding so there was a lot to do within a short amount of time. Kelly and I spent countless hours chatting on the phone (I live out of town), sometimes until 1AM, catching her up to speed. Her dedication to our wedding was apparent, working long days and nights to master a full day event from top to bottom.
On multiple occasions she caught little details that weren't account for. In those three days she read every vendor contract, was in full communication with them, and put together our extensive timeline. She was at my parent's house bright and early on our wedding day where I met her for the first time. I truly felt like I had an assistant, which was amazing because she made our day stress free and we were able to enjoy everything about that day. Kelly did all of the thinking for us - who was taking our stuff from point A to B from B to C, keeping everyone on schedule, handing out tips, problem solving, ect. Throughout the day she was very attentive to how I was feeling and how she could make it better. She really hustled and grinded for John and I when she wasn't able to attend the ceremony so she could help set up at the reception. My only regret is not hiring her from the beginning. We will always remember Kelly as the one who made our wedding perfect. I will forever love her sweet self for that!

"Kelly Was An Absolute Joy To Work With"

I think of myself as a very organized person, and thought I would easily be able to plan my own wedding. But coupling wedding planning with a demanding, time-consuming job, I quickly became overwhelmed. Fortunately, Kelly came to my rescue! After our first meeting, Kelly was already 5 steps ahead of me and it was apparent that she has a genuine passion for planning and executing memorable events. Not only is she an incredible planner, she has a great eye for design. She seamlessly coordinated with all of our vendors to ensure our big day was exactly what my husband and I had dreamed of. She thoughtfully planned out every last detail of our special day that ultimately left all of our guests simply amazed. Kelly was an absolute joy to work with and I would definitely recommend Sparkle & Shine Events for your next event.

"Kelly Stopped At Nothing To Make Sure We Had The Most Incredible Day Of Our Lives"

Kelly, you stopped at nothing to make sure Atif and I had the most incredible day of our lives in Antibes! Nothing I can say could translate the gratitude we have for you, your execution, and delivery from the months leading up to and especially the week we were in France. 5 stars isn't a limit that could capture all you have done, but for those that know me best (and you too perhaps after this journey), know that when I say you are the best wedding planner we could have ever asked for, I mean it without a doubt. Your talent far exceeds anything I know. Thank you!!! If anyone is looking for a wedding planner that will guide you through the entire planning process (and ours was abroad) and see through the day of with both the highest professionalism and finesse, I promise you, you will not go wrong with Kelly! I'm a bit of a control freak (being honest), I but felt so comfortable having her steer through the days. She pulled our wedding off WAY better than I had even envisioned. She was the go to person coordinating everything on our behalf long distance. You are the best decision I made. Period.

"We Are So Happy With Our Decision To Use Sparkle & Shine Events As Our Wedding Planning Choice"

Kelly is simply the best! She made everything so much more fun and easy for me to where I did not have to stress! Her attention to detail and perfection was obvious in every interaction with her. She has so much knowledge about weddings and communication with her was very easy! She always responded quickly and made me know that our wedding had her full and utmost attention. Meetings with her were very frequent, easy to schedule, and we were able to get a lot accomplished as well as have fun! She also has a great eye for style and design! John and I are so happy with our decision to use Sparkle & Shine Events as our wedding planning choice. Our wedding was the most fun night of our lives and people still tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been to! We owe a lot of this to Kelly. She made sure that everything ran smoothly, kept all vendors connected and on point and made everything come together beautifully on the big day! So happy we chose Kelly! :)

Kelly was such a great wedding planner!! Wedding planning really stressed me out so we decided to get a coordinator and I'm so thankful we did! Kelly made my life so much easier. She's extremely organized and on top of things. The best thing about Kelly is that she truly cares about you and wants you to be happy and have your wedding day be the best day of your life. She always made a point to make sure I was happy and as least stressed as possible. She is a great person and coordinator and I would recommend her to anyone. I can easily say that my wedding ended up being perfect! Everything went as smoothly as possible, and it was a gorgeous and amazingly fun night. Thank you so much Kelly and Sparkle and Shine!

"From Bartenders To Caterers, And Flowers To Favors, Kelly Had Wonderful Ideas And Knew How To Make It Happen"

Thanks to Kelly, we had a wonderful rehearsal dinner! When our son and his fiancé chose to have the rehearsal dinner at the community center where they met, I thought it was a fun idea. But I soon realized how hard it would be to get it all together. Once Kelly was on board, I knew everything would be great. From bartenders to caterers, and flowers to favors, she had wonderful ideas and knew how to make it happen. She made sure everything was ready for the special night and stayed making sure it was perfect. I could not have done it without her. We so appreciate what she did for us.

"Kelly Made Sure That I Did Not Miss A Detail"

This is one of the easiest reviews I could write. Kelly Brant served as a consultant for my 600-person wedding and was AMAZING!! There were so many details to such a large wedding with 3 different cultures present, and Kelly made sure I did not miss a detail. I have never met a person so detail-oriented, which is so important when planning a wedding. She came up with the most creative ideas as well. Many brides do not actually have a vision for their wedding, and I was one of those brides. However, Kelly threw out a lot of themes and decoration ideas that I ended up loving and going with.

She also helped me plan my bachelorette party in Miami. There were 20 girls, so it could have been a mess, but the plans were absolutely perfect and we had the best time ever! I have so many people calling and asking about our trip now, so they can have the same exact itinerary.

Needless to say, I would recommend Kelly to any and every bride. She is worth every penny!

"I Could Not Have Asked For A Better Experience With Sparkle & Shine"

I could not have asked for a better experience with Sparkle and Shine! Kelly was attentive and went above and beyond her duties from the first day we hired her. She made the day of and the weeks leading up to the wedding a breeze and as stress free as possible for me. She handled all delivery times and worked with my vendors so I could focus on celebrating. I highly recommend Kelly and her team to handle your event!

- Kelly, Bride
