"Best decision ever! We decided to get a coordinator later in our wedding planning as we realized we couldn't do everything on our own and needed help, especially for the big day. I researched day-of coordinators and liked the fact that Rustic Elegance could provide suggestions for your decor as well as provide rentals. It was a one-stop shop! Throughout the whole process, Kellie was absolutely amazing to work with. Not only did she spend so much time talking through the logistics and details of the day in the months prior, but she was my advocate to make sure everything went as I planned and wanted. Kellie did a great job in making game day decisions that took the stress away. There was an accident that caused my guests to run late to the ceremony so Kellie helped coordinate pushing the start time back an hour. Most brides might be anxious over this, but I didn't feel like it was an issue because Kellie handled it (communicated to family, the vendors, caterer, etc.).It may sound corny but I felt like Kellie was another member of my friends and family. She even sent pictures to my mom who unfortunately couldn't attend the wedding. I got several compliments on how professional Rustic Elegance was on the day of the wedding and how helpful it was to have a real coordinator and not a friend or family member in this role. Literally everyone in my bridal party commented on how they could just have fun and it was the least stressful wedding they've been in. Most importantly, it allowed my husband and I to enjoy our day and live in the moment. Rustic Elegance's services are priceless. You won't be disappointed"..

Best Decision Ever! As I look back at our wedding pictures, I am remembering all the love that we felt that day. I was carefree and smiling all day and my husband and I were able to enjoy the time with our friends and family who traveled from all over to celebrate with us. And that doesn't mean that nothing went wrong, it was just handled splendidly. Big kudos to Kellie and Lynse of Rustic Elegance, who made it all possible. We had the event on our family's farm, and I was afraid that my family was going to get so caught up in organizing and executing the details that they would not get to enjoy the day. So I hired Rustic Elegance for day-of coordination. The best idea...EVER! I am so grateful. Despite a severe thunderstorm rolling through the farm immediately before our outdoor ceremony, Kellie and Lynse brainstormed, rearranged, delegated, took suggestions gracefully and if you hadn't actually seen the storm yourself, you probably wouldn't have known it had happened. An amazingly beautiful, stress-free wedding day. What kind of price can you put on that?!

A huge help! I am a very type-A, ultra organized person and I wanted to do my wedding all on my own. My family eventually convinced me to hire a Day-Of Coordinator so that I wouldn't have to worry about anything on my wedding day. I am SO glad I did. Kellie was a huge help. She stayed in touch throughout the planning process and organized all of the wedding details into one big packet. She would look over everything and add suggestions here and there- she thought of the smallest details that never crossed my mind! Because I hired her as my coordinator, all of her rental items were included- which saved us tons of money. The rentals were so cute and Kellie helped me to customize them a bit (ex. removing the twine from the mason jars) so that they would match my wedding style. Kellie was at my rehearsal and the wedding. Everything ran smoothly and perfectly... I didn't have to worry about a thing. She directed guests and wedding party to where they needed to go, made sure everyone was on time and in place for the ceremony, met with all the vendors as they arrived and tipped them as they left, put out snacks/brewed coffee throughout the reception, lit the candles, helped to clean off tables and pack up everything at the end of the day... And so much more! I am so glad I was able to just "be the bride" on my wedding day and not worry about those details. Kellie was professional, timely, organized and personable. I highly recommend her!

"I can't even begin to describe my appreciation for you and Lindsay's help on everything it was truly amazing everything you guys did for us! I actually have tears in my eyes while trying to text this. You helped make the best day of my life possible!
Absolutely Fabulous! I cant say enough good things about Rustic Elegance! I found out about them through a family friend and they have been nothing but helpful. Kellie is very organized, has great ideas, and is very quick with responses with any questions I have. The first time I met her I felt absolutely comfortable putting my backyard reception in her hands. She was able to take the blank slate in my backyard and create a whole new "rustic" vibe about it! I loved that she already had all items for rent, rather then going to buy all these items to only use them once. I don't think I could have done any of this on my own and I am so glad that I hired Rustic Elegance to help me with my day! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for a little guidance or anyone who is just looking to relax and have a good time on their special day without any extra worries, because Kellie takes those all away :)

Hi Kellie! Thank you SO much for your help! I didn't have to worry about ANYTHING the day of- which was so nice. Everything went smoothly and everyone had a great time. I am so glad I didn't try to do it all myself :) I can't thank you enough for keeping our wedding day a stress-free and successful event. Thank you!
I absolutely love Kellie and Rustic Elegance! I am renting all of my rustic decor through her company for my August rustic farm wedding. She is so flexible and if there is something that you have in mind for your wedding and she doesn't already have that item she will try and find one. Her prices are also really affordable for a bride on a budget as well. A shout out to Kellie ! Thanks for helping make my dream wedding!
