MK Events came highly recommended and helped us create the most beautiful, magical, and fun wedding!
Makayla is Amazing!
Makayla was very organized and kept me on track during the planning process and gave me next steps to do. She created a detailed timeline and helped to make sure nothing slipped through the cracks. I felt so much more relaxed on the wedding day knowing Makayla was there to keep everything going smoothly. She seems to have a magical ability to both take control of situations as needed, but also to fade into the background when appropriate (in a good way!).
Makayla was a great communicator with us, as well as all of our vendors, wedding party members, and MC. At the end of the day, our wedding photographer mentioned to me that they were very impressed and would like to work with Makayla again in the future. We were in full agreement!
It was wonderful to know Makayla was problem solving behind the scenes, doing set up, communicating with everyone, and helping with getting the venue back in order after the wedding. She really took a large weight off my shoulders as the bride. Thank you so much for everything Makayla!!
If you're considering working with her, do not hesitate!
Our wedding was magical
Makayla is the absolute best!
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!
Calm and Kind - Makayla is there for you!
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.
The best wedding coordinator!
Mother-of-the-Bride - Was able to relax!

I have been event planning for the last 9 years, and I thrive on managing and coordinating details and logistics. The finished product of a dream come to life brings me great joy! I love working to create the visions that people see in their minds by bringing in my design eye. I am always quick to smile and offer a kind and encouraging word throughout the planning process!
