    Professional, organized and the best choice we made!

    Words cannot even begin to describe how thankful we were to Karina (and her assistant Jackie) for helping make our wedding day so magical. We hired Karina as a partial planner and she was incredible. After speaking to her on the phone for an initial consultation, we felt like a weight had been lifted off of our shoulders, and we hadn't even hired her yet! She was so patient with us throughout the process and her advice truly helped us every step of the way. She introduced us to some amazing vendors (Cool, Green & Shady, Fine Cakes by Zehra, Alix Gould Photography) and they were a true dream team. She was truly amazing and went above and beyond her duties, and in 40 degree heat (not an easy task). We cannot recommend Karina enough!

    Thank You Karina!

    Karina,

    We wanted to get to your thank you last as it is the most important to us.

    You had a huge impact on our engagement and wedding. We have had such a difficult time trying to write this as it felt like there were 100 things worth mentioning and we couldn’t narrow them down.

    We laugh when we discuss our first introduction to you. We were completely attached to the concept of a short-haul destination wedding and were fixated on the idea of Niagara on The Lake. Then we sat down with you, got briefly acquainted and within minutes you had surgically dismantled our thoughts, left us in a state of shock, and then before we knew what had hit us you put it back together into a new, more convenient concept that we loved far more than the original. Everything you said made complete sense, informing us on angles we hadn’t considered, left few questions unanswered and you communicated it in your trademark flurry of fast-paced information that was somehow so clear and detailed but easy to understand at the same time. After we left Darren was amazed and said something along the lines of “She just took something that we would have found out painfully over months and reduced it to 10 minutes of her time. I need her involved in every aspect of our wedding.”

    You have an incredible gift for your ability to deliver strong opinions in a gentle and genuine tone. It goes perfectly with your confidence to always speak up and state your view. Out of all your great qualities, we may have appreciated this one the most. Darren and I are both the type of people to normally over-research and scrutinize every decision we make, but we both knew that would be a recipe for anxiety when it came to wedding planning. Somehow, with more decisions to make than we’ve ever faced before, everything felt easy. You gave that to us. The confidence you have is contagious, your knowledge and experience and thoughtful perspective is so obvious, and it was always clear that your opinions were backed by the best intentions. You earned our trust right away.

    If there is one big thing to thank you for, it's how much space you created for us to relax and truly enjoy what was been the best 14 months of our life. Going in, everybody told us there was no avoiding the stress of planning a wedding. I wish we could go back in time and tell them to call you. Darren and I truly believe you had the biggest impact on our ability to enjoy our engagement. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we can’t even begin to imagine how different the experience would have been without your help.

    Of course we can’t list them all, but there are a few specific memories that we wanted to bring up:

    - We went through our entire wedding without a passing thought towards logistics or co-ordination, thank you for taking that anxiety out of our day
    - We loved the way you knew the venues, figured out logistics, and gave the tours better than the on-site coordinators
    - Thinking back, we were amazed by how accurately you budgeted out our entire wedding in that first meeting. You gave us a detailed back of the envelope quote in only a few minutes and it was spot on when we saw the final tally!
    - Thank you so much for resolving the minor venue mixups on our behalf, we had no energy to push back in the afterglow of our wedding. We were so relieved when you stepped in and took care of that for us.
    - The patience and grace with which you directed and interacted with our families
    - I especially wanted to thank you for talking us back into chicken wings. Darren was worried the guests would find them sloppy and then you commented chicken fingers were a little underwhelming and you got him immediately excited again. They were a hit, and chicken wings hold a very special place in his heart. He also wanted me to let you know that he felt sad when you hugged him goodbye after Billie Jean.

    You were an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you so so much for making our day as beautiful and special as we had hoped for!

    Julie & Darren

    5 Star Wedding Planner

    We first met Karina Lemke at our best friend's wedding. The bride and groom had nothing but excellent things to say about her. We had hired her for month-of planning and until this day our biggest regret was that we didn't hire her as our full time wedding planner after we got engaged. It's not just about the execution on the wedding day. We come from two strong cultural backgrounds (Chinese & Persian) and we had a wedding with 300+ guests and a lot of moving parts. Leading up to the wedding, she spent a lot of time ensuring that we were comfortable with the vendors we booked, scheduling and all the little details...even making our families happy! She is so passionate about all things weddings and one thing that really stood out to us was how much she genuinely cared about us. She is really approachable. You can send her an e-mail or shoot her a text and she would get back to you right away. Out of all the decisions we made, hiring Karina was by far the best investment. We will never forget the most memorable day of our lives all thanks to Karina and her amazing team! She truly is a 5 star wedding planner. If you want the wedding of your dreams, we would highly recommend her!

    Jasmine..... thank you for your kind words! I wish I had been with you from the start too..!!!! What a wonderful wedding it was and knowing that you were happy with me, means everything! Despite the challenges, you and Soroosh were nothing but pure joy and sunshine and your level of organization of your personal items for me made my heart sing. (Thank you for that!!! ) a lifetime of happiness to you both and see you at Melissa's Wedding!

    Forever Grateful

    What can I possibly say - our wedding was spectacular. In fact, it was more than spectacular- it was perfect. Karina worked her magic to make sure my husband and I had the most incredible day of our lives, and it showed! Nothing I can say would accurately translate the gratitude we have for Karina - her execution, and delivery from the months leading up to, and finally the big day was impeccable. When I booked Karina, I lived in Boston and never had a chance to meet in person, but she was so professional and experienced over the phone, I knew that her sensible and tasteful style would guide me from afar. Karina suggested all of the vendors I used for my big day, and joined me on my major appointments to help guide the meetings. She gave me wonderful suggestions for food selections, music, florals and stationary. Karina helped me focus on the important things, while preventing me from sweating the small stuff - she helped me decide what details were important and what could be left out. I had absolutely everything taken care of by her on the wedding day. That being said, what stands out the most is how loved Karina is around the city in the wedding world - her graciousness and kind attitude is what makes her so great! Highly recommended.
