    Makayla is the absolute best!

    We booked our wedding venue in January 2020, 10 months in advance of our wedding date. Two months later COVID hit and we entered a would of uncertainty in planning the wedding. When we hired Makayla, we had interviewed several possible coordinators, but we had such a good feeling about her after we spoke over video chat that it felt like a no-brainer to move forward with her. She projected such positivity and we felt like we had a nice rapport. She also seemed to understand our perspective towards the wedding which was that we wanted something that felt like us and didn’t rely on traditions.

    With this being our first wedding, we naturally didn’t have many experiences to draw from, but Makayla was always available to answer our questions and most importantly provide guidance throughout the whole process. She gave us so many helpful tips and ideas throughout; her advice was always source of comfort during the most stressful times of the process.

    With the uncertainty of COVID, we had to make the difficult decision to not once but twice postpone our wedding from October 2020 to November 2021, and Makayla was with us every step of the way. She showed a versatility to not only roll with the punches of COVID but also with ever-changing situations of our lives, even agreeing to fly back to Texas for our wedding after she had moved to Canada. That is commitment!

    For the actual day of the wedding, we could not have asked for a better Day of Coordinator than Makayla. She was simply on-top of everything from beginning to end, and it felt like she was everywhere at once. Once again, she proved excellent at rolling with the punches that the day provided, especially when it came to unexpected deviations in the day’s timeline. She also delivered little personal touches that made the day feel extra special. With so much time, energy, and money put into the whole wedding planning process, we were beyond happy that our day was worth it in the end. It was absolutely perfect, and we owe so much of that to Makayla. At the end of the day, we both felt that we had made the right decision booking MK Events, and that in particular that we could not have pulled off our perfect day without Makayla!

    MK Events's reply:

    Chris & Adrian,

    I am overwhelmed with the kindness of these words and how much our time together meant to both of you. It was an honor to be a part of your big day and to see you two through the entire process, including all the ups and downs.

    I wish you both so much happiness and love in your marriage!!

    Warmly,
    Makayla

    Calm and Kind - Makayla is there for you!

    Makayla's Boutonnière package and services were one of the best purchases we made for our special day. From the minute we had our first phone call to see if we'd be a good fit, she was calm, kind and continually put us at ease.

    Makayla provided the laundry list of to-dos that come along with planning a wedding but in a very user-friendly way using a platform called aisleplanner. She provides regular check-ins to chat through your dream day and how you'd like to see it unfold and what it takes to get there.

    A week prior to the wedding, she takes over any questions from friends, family or vendors - letting the two getting married relax and soak all the happy moments up.
    She also provides recommendations on vendors when needed and she's just fun to go for coffee with even if all your tasks are done! Overall I just felt like she was a close friend looking out for our best interests - how nice is that?

    The day of the wedding she kept all our ducks in a row, handled setup, cleanup and the general timeline of the day and it moved as smooth as we'd hoped for (tthere's probably so much more she did that I'm probably forgetting because I didn't have to worry about a thing - and that's truly the best part).

    I can't say enough great things about Makayla and her services through MK Events. Would recommend to anyone humming and hawing, she works wonders.

    MK Events's reply:

    Molly & Mike,

    Your wedding day was a blast, and it makes my heart so happy to hear that you didn’t worry about a thing. That’s exactly what I hoped for!!

    Loved getting coffee and just generally enjoying the process of planning your big day. Wishing you both so much happiness!

    Warmly,
    Makayla

    Mother-of-the-Bride - Was able to relax!

    Makayla did an amazing job hosting my daughter’s wedding. She was there to handle the small details that we hadn’t thought about as well as the big ones. It sure took a lot of stress off of us and made the day very relaxing and beautiful for this mother of the bride. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Makayla for everything you did for us. You are a blessing to everyone. I 💯 recommend Makayla to help make your day a truly special day to remember!

    It was an absolute pleasure working with MK Events. Every detail was taken care of which truly allowed my husband and I to enjoy our special day.

    My husband and I had a wonderful time working with MK Events. Makayla was able to capture our ideas for our dream ceremony. She went above and beyond with planning out details and communicating with our bridal party. Makayla made what would generally be a stress invoking day, very relaxing. The morning of the wedding, as well as the planning process before was very organized and professional. Makayla was diligent about including and prioritizing what was most important for my husband and I. She truly cared about creating our vision and making sure no pieces were missed. I appreciate the detail and consideration that was clearly put into this process. I would highly recommend MK Events as I only have positive feedback and experiences. Thank you again for making our dream Wedding day come true. -Sarah and Brenden
