To say that I am a particular person in general is a vast understatement - I am a unique combination of super picky, fairly stubborn and incredibly indecisive. So you can only imagine how I was as a bride in wedding-planning mode. Add to that parents who were hosting the wedding who live in another state (and only were in town 2 days during wedding planning) and a husband from another continent whose customs and expectations of what a wedding entails were often not aligned with mine.
But Kayla from Brilliant Wedding Co. handled this all with stride. I could send her a photo of a tablecloth or cake platter that I found on Instagram and HAD to have and in no time at all she was sending me recommendations of local places I could get something similar. She didn't blink an eye when we joined the florist at the flower mart, spent several hours hand-picking the flowers for the wedding (which I'm fairly certain most florists don't let their brides do) and then an hour after placing the order I changed my mind. She didn't tell me I was crazy when I mentioned multiple times that I had a specific way I wanted each napkin knotted - and for the record all ~165 napkins were knotted just as I had envisioned. And she had an incredible level of patience while doing the wedding rehearsal with 14 foreigners (half of which are rowdy children who do not speak English) who had never experienced an organized American wedding processional/recessional.
Thanks so much for Brilliant Wedding Co. for helping bring to life our vision and the most amazing day of our lives!

My husband and I have been one of the lucky ones to have worked with Kayla. She literally made our wedding dreams come true. In a nutshell, our wedding was not your typical wedding to plan. Basically, it could have been a logistical nightmare if our wedding was placed in the wrong hands. For starters our wedding was not by any means intimate or quaint, we had over 300 people attend our wedding. But more importantly, we were working with a complete blank canvas for a venue. Now this could have gone one of two directions, it could have looked like an ugly disaster or turned into what I thought was a fairytale wedding. Since we were working with a blank canvas as a venue, we had almost 30 vendors. What could have looked like the worst night ever, turned out to be the most memorable night of my life. Her attention to detail, her unbelievable organizational skills, amazing communication and never once cracked under pressure, are only a few of Kayla's noteworthy qualities. She made the entire weekend run so smoothly, with such ease and grace. Still to this day I have people coming up to me saying "hey you're that bride from that wedding," and they will reference our wedding hashtag. The pictures speak for themselves so check it out on Instagram, #HolyMendomony and take my word for it, Kayla was the one that made it all come to life. We couldn't be more grateful for all that she did and the experience we had working with her.

Working with Kayla was an absolute dream! We literally cannot recommend her enough!! A few things really set her apart. She's incredibly organized and detail oriented - we never worried once that she might miss something in any step of the planning. Kayla's vendor sourcing and management was spot on. She also has wonderful, creative ideas and a great sense of style! She went so many lengths to make our wedding perfect and was so kind throughout the whole process. She even worked with a rentals business to build the perfect tables and fabricate an iron base so that we could build our own arbor! Her passion and love for weddings comes through in every interaction. We miss our phone calls and working with her!

Kayla was everything we could have asked for in a wedding planner. She was punctual, accessible, and everything ran as planned on the day of the wedding. She went above and beyond in every capacity, and we are so happy we made the decision to go with her. Thanks Kayla!
