"Simply the Best"
Married on 5/15/21 at Eternally Yours Wedding Chapel + Maggiano's I-Drive
After becoming so overwhelmed with wedding preparations at the age of 60, I hired Kelsey (by way of a Wedding Wire referral) approximately 6 weeks prior to my wedding date of May 15, 2021. I worked full time and I completely underestimated all that goes into the preparing for a wedding, no matter how big or small it is. While our wedding was small (34 including my husband & I), we knew we wanted it to be classic, beautiful & memorable.
I knew as soon as I spoke to Kelsey on the phone, that I wanted to hire her as my wedding planner. Her experience shines through when you are speaking to her; yet she listens to what your thoughts and concerns are, as well. Kelsey & I first met at my venue to discuss wedding details. She came with her laptop and typed in as we discussed everything from color palettes to my vision to a proposed budget. After the meeting, she sent me a summary of what she was going to get started working on and kept in constant communication with me.
I would advise any couple who gets married to filter in a Wedding Planner to their budget. So often in today’s world, we think we can handle “it.all.” Then, you set forth to plan your wedding and you realize, the process is bigger than you. For me, Kelsey brought experience, organization & structure to my life in planning this wedding. I also found her to be such a calming and positive influence through this process. She was an excellent communicator, not only with me, but with the vendors; she has clearly fostered solid relationships over the years with the vendors in the industry.
On a final note, my wedding was beautiful, amazing… because I hired someone that clearly cared about making my day as special for me, as I did myself. I would say that if you have the opportunity to hire Simply Enchanted Events/Kelsey Balmer, I would highly recommend you do so. You will be so happy that you did.

"A Simply Enchanted Experience"
Married on 4/23/21 at The Trump Doral Miami
We had such a great experience working Kelsey Balmer at Simply Enchanted last month. Our daughter’s wedding was at the Trump National in Doral in April and Kelsey made sure that everything was in motion and covered at all times. The venue had a great wedding coordinator but Kelsey added a huge extra layer of calm and competence to the whole event.
From the rehearsal to the day of, we never had to worry about anyone knowing where to stand, what to do, when to move. This gave us as the parents of the bride the ability to really enjoy every moment and not be running or coordinating everything.
Throughout the weeks and months running up to the wedding, Kelsey checked in consistently to make sure we were hitting all of the to do items with all of the vendors. She met with us several times to get a sanity check on whether we would have everything ready from all of the dresses, the vows, the signs, the favors. On the day of, she and her assistant were incredible. Although there were 100 moving parts, she just took everything that we handed her (literally) and made sure it ended up in the right hands at the right time. She stayed with us through the entire event right through the final sweep of the venue late Friday night.
Kelsey was so calm and reassuring throughout the process and that made it possible for us to really relax, knowing she had all of the details covered. Thanks to her, we were able to fully breathe and enjoy the day that we had planned for so long. We highly recommend her services.

"Month of Lifesaver"
Married on 1/30/21 at The Acre Orlando
"I booked Kelsey as a month of coordinator, but was fortunate enough to have her guidance all throughout the process of wedding planning. When I felt overwhelmed, Kelsey was so reassuring and made me feel at ease about all the details that go into wedding planning. I would send her the most random questions, all in one lengthy email, completely all over the place, and at the most random time of the night/morning LOL but Kelsey always responded in a timely manner with all questions answered, and always so nice and understanding! It was so nice to be able to fully trust without a doubt that she had everything under control. Her taking over the month of the wedding allowed me to be able to actually enjoy that time vs running around all stressed out, trying to iron out the remaining little details. The day of the wedding, Kelsey was attentive but also so discrete and absolutely running the show behind the scenes. She never interfered but was always right there if needed. She kept things going as scheduled to make it the most fun and enjoyable day and night. My wedding was absolutely perfect and by far the best day of my life. It would not have been the same without Kelsey! For someone (me) who can be OCD and very detail oriented, Kelsey made it an easy process to let go and have FUN! I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you Kelsey for being my go to girl!!"

"Kelsey at Simply Enchanted Events is truly one of a kind. From the very beginning, Kelsey made everything easy for us. She provided checklists to keep us on track, as well as a perfectly detailed timeline for our wedding day. She was available day and night for anything we needed. When it came to the wedding day itself, Kelsey went above and beyond our expectations. Not only is she punctual and efficient, but she has a natural eye for details and design. Whether you are having a ten guest intimate wedding, or a 300 guest large wedding, I have complete faith that Kelsey would meet and exceed your expectations." - Emily & Gehrig on 1/12/21
