Keri was absolutely fabulous! From day one, I knew that we just “clicked” which is extremely important when you are looking for a wedding planner! My husband & I live in CA but are originally from MA and there was no questions once he popped the question that we were getting married in our beloved Cape Cod! I knew, however I needed someone to help me with the planning, preparation, vendor suggestions, meetings, calls, and overall scheduling the day of! With all the time and money spent planning your dream wedding, why would you want to ruin that with being stressed, overwhelmed and running behind schedule on your big day!? For us, there was no question we needed help, queue the drumroll...and Keri literally was our saving grace! From my initial conversation with her, she made me feel as if she “just got” my vision. We had similar style, I loved her Instagram inspiration and most importantly she made me feel comfortable & heard. She is bubbly, sweet, professional, & great at what she does! Keri is on.the.ball! I am the type of person that can can be slightly “overbearing” and am extremely type-A! To be blunt I like things done a specific way, I am extremely organized, and a bit of a perfectionist. The week of our wedding, I didn’t have to worry about one thing! Keri handled it! She reached out to every vendor for me, she coordinated every minute in detail, and she was constantly checking in on me the day of to make sure I was comfortable, calm, and excited to tie the knot! I would give Keri 10 stars if I could and would recommend her to anyone in the Boston, Cape Cod area looking for a full design wedding planner, who is especially good at adding those little touches of individuality! She was a absolute pleasure to work with and worth every penny! We loved working with Keri and wish her nothing but the most success in her future! Lots of love!
Where do I even start?! Keri is just beyond amazing. I interviewed two planners — the first one I spoke with I took a lot of notes. But when I spoke with Keri I didn’t take a single note! We completely clicked and I knew that she was the planner for us. Keri understood exactly what I wanted and added so many special touches to our design along the way. She has implicit trust in all of her incredibly talented vendors and I used everyone she recommended. Keri has so much knowledge about this wedding world and we would have been completely lost with out her. The learning curve for planning a wedding is so steep. We needed Keri’s guidance and expertise to help us navigate the industry, contracts, fees, logistics, etc. Closer to the big day, there were a few final planning questions that Keri wanted to run by me. I told her to just make the decisions because I knew I would agree w whatever she chose. On our wedding day, Keri was there from sun up to sun down. Her wedding day kit is so impressive - she could rule the world out of that bag. Our day could not have happened with out Keri. We are forever thankful that Keri was introduced to us. Thank you, Keri! You are the queen of planning.
I tell everyone the same thing: there is absolutely no way we could have pulled off our extraordinary wedding day without Keri. We feel very fortunate to have found her and I would recommend her end-to-end planning services to anyone looking to have a stellar experience on their wedding day. Keri Ketterer is one of those rare talents who is both an incredible wedding planner AND event designer – this lady is truly the whole package! My husband and I had a vision for our destination wedding in Ogunquit, ME that was very meaningful to us and Keri worked tirelessly to make it a reality. From start to finish, she was professional, thorough, and incredibly thoughtful. She was easily accessible throughout the process and helped us build a stellar list of vendors, a minute-by-minute timeline and a swoon-worthy design plan – all while keeping us well within our budget. My family and friends were in awe of her work and could not stop raving about her after the wedding. It is so evident that this is Keri’s true passion, which is such a pleasure to witness. I was absolutely not a stressed out bride on my wedding day. I felt truly relaxed (and ready to marry my groom!) because I knew Keri would be there running the show.
Initially my husband and I weren’t sure we wanted a wedding planner. We were convinced with enough Pinterest and magazine clippings we could confidently plan the most amazing party ever. Just shy of going out and buying enough glue and glitter to decorate at least one vegas show girl we stumbled upon a website for a local Cape Cod wedding planner. Her website and portfolio were so intriguing that we figured why not giver her a call. 20 minutes later we booked her. WHY the change of heart you might ask.... I will simply tell you this, Keri within a short conversation was more genuine and informative and creative than any industry professional we had ever met. She intently listened to what we were thinking and with ease and fluidity put together a plan and executed. We worked together throughout the process (This is important as we did want to be present in the planning!) and she secured us the best vendors, negotiated all of the contracts ( things you don’t want to be doing during a wedding) and coordinated every logistic and backup plan that could possibly be needed. She also was there for us for every glitch that we encountered from how to handle family shenanigans to what to do in a crisis ( my dog ate all of my bridesmaids gifts the day before the wedding - 10 pairs of expensive gold earrings) She was ON TOP OF IT ALL. She is simply put the best wedding planner out there and a beautiful person. I have been to two of her weddings now and they are fun, aesthetically breathtaking, and unique. So much so that 2 of our friends who are engaged have booked her for 2017.
I would recommend Keri and Always Yours Events to anyone looking for a fantastic wedding planner! From start to finish Keri just truly understood us and our vision for our day and was truly able to make our wedding exactly what we envisioned and a truly magical day. I always knew I was in the best hands with Keri and I never had to worry about deadlines, details, etc as I knew she was so on top of it and would always guide me through the process. I am a visual person and often had issues telling her the things I liked and she truly could read my mind and always came to me with exactly what I was trying to visualize. As a very panicked person, Keri truly put me at ease and on the day of the wedding I could just sit back, relax and enjoy the day and walking outside to see everything I ever wanted flawlessly executed was so amazing. Keri is phenomenal and I recommend her at the highest level to anyone!
I could not possibly recommend Keri / AYE strongly enough! We started planning on our own, and two vendors in we knew that was a mistake. I found Keri on theknot.com and am so lucky that I did. We had a very specific vision for our wedding and Keri listened intently and then took our ideas above and beyond our wildest wedding dreams :) She helped make our wedding day so incredibly personal and allowed us to feel like we were guests at our own party. She was amazingly accessible throughout the planning process and was incredibly calm and effective when our plans for a wedding at a somewhat nontraditional venue inevitably hit a few road bumps. She kept us on schedule, while being understanding and supportive of our hectic schedules. Her positive attitude and “can do” spirit were an incredibly appreciated source of stress relief during such a busy time—we knew we could count on her to resolve any issue that arose. She went way beyond her call of duty to make our whole planning experience and wedding day perfect. She even sat with me during my hair and makeup trial when my mother was unable to attend. We have been married almost two months and our guests are still raving about what a great time they had and what an amazing job Keri did curating and directing the day’s events. We had the most perfect day ever and will be forever grateful to Keri for providing us with such wonderful memories.
Where do I even begin. I feel so incredibly lucky to have found Keri and Always Yours Events for my wedding in Sandwich, MA. Keri helped me plan the month of coordination activities for my wedding, working with all of my vendors, creating a super detailed timeline, and managing any and all issues that surfaced on the big day! My wedding day was absolutely perfect, in large part due to all of the hard work Keri put in to make sure everything ran smoothly. And best of all, she and I had a lot of fun together along the way! She was wonderfully reassuring during our calls and in person meetings leading up to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Keri blended in beautifully with me and my bridesmaids, laughing and smiling, while simultaneously maintaining a constant eye on the clock and expected activities. I was so relaxed and happy the whole time, knowing Keri had everything covered! My husband and parents absolutely loved working with her. And our entire bridal party was so impressed with her! Keri’s love of wedding planning truly shines in her work. She was absolutely meant to do this. Any bride-to-be would be so lucky to work with her. Thank you Keri!
During our planning we found Keri at just the right time. I originally thought we wouldn’t need a planner and I slowly realized how mistaken I was. I spoke with several planners before we settled on Always Yours Events. When we met for coffee, I just knew Keri would be perfect for us. She has an amazing eye for design, is super organized, and her focus is placed on making the event truly special and personal. We had our wedding at a working farm where we literally needed to bring in everything. The only thing the farm provided was one staff person that would be on-site the day of our wedding. We also wanted to have a mobile pizza oven for our wedding which made things extra difficult. Keri spoke with several of the vendors we were considering (who weren’t used to catering for weddings), helped us negotiate contracts and handled all of the logistics. We would’t have been able to do this without her! In addition to the pizza vendor she also handled all the contracts and logistics for many other vendors including furniture rentals, servers, liquor and bar, dessert, photographer, and florals. Even with a rambunctious wedding party, Keri worked with our officiant and ran our rehearsal smoothly. She was also with us the day before to help set everything up and make everything look beautiful. The day of the wedding ran smoothly thanks to Keri’s detailed timeline and coordination. Because of Always Yours Events we were able to enjoy our day and celebrate with our friends and family without having to worry about a thing!
