"I still don't know if I have the words to describe Kimberly Sisti and her creativity, charm, humor, professionalism, and dedication to making our wedding our dream day. From me changing my mind MANY times about little details to family members inserting their own opinions...Kim did not skip a beat and delivered the dreamiest setting I could have ever imagined. From our florals to our stunning and delicious cake, to every small yet beautiful detail in between, our guests were in awe...She's a pleasure to work with, an excellent communicator, and will truly become your friend by the end of this whirlwind process. We planned our wedding remotely from Chicago but knew we were in amazing hands since our first conversation with Kim. If there was a way to give her more stars than five, she'd get them all!
Kim is a gem! I could write to the word limit on Kim alone. She develops a great vision of YOUR vision, has amazing ideas to bring your vision to reality, and considers every detail to deliver your wedding the way you want it. By the wedding date, I truly felt Kim was more a family member than a wedding coordinator! I think Kim feels that way as way too. She’s not planning from the side… She’s IN it, living it, right there with you!
The veranda was beautifully arranged for the reception dinner. Every requested detail was perfectly captured; from the champagne table cloths with lace overlays, vintage place settings, and rustic floral arrangements to the warm chandelier lighting.
Kim made our cake as well. Elegant and delicious!
You will not be disappointed!
I'm the type of person who shamelessly reads other people's reviews but then never takes the time to write my own. Not this time. Kim, Cordiano's wedding event planner guru, took it to the next level for our wedding and I simply cannot thank her enough. It's that typical request every bride must say to Kim: I want BEAUTIFUL and AMAZING and all of the details and food and music to go seamlessly, but I also don't want to be bankrupt at the start of my marriage. And Kim delivers on every front, and then some. (She) truly, truly loves what she does and you can feel that from her the second you meet her, and personal contacts with extremely talented, well regarded, and reasonably priced music, officiants, flowers, etc.
You give Kim a theme or an idea, and she dedicates her time and her energy for your vision to come to life...but at the SAME time, she keeps you very well apprised of the budget and respects your parameters. I told her that I wanted simple (it was a small wedding); but simple did not mean plain and she just "got" me on my vision that I could not articulate myself. During the planning process (and we met multiple times, which she never seemed to mind and always seemed to have time for), she came to the table with a series of pictures and ideas for us to narrow down and streamline into a final vision. And after all of the talking was over, I find in my inbox emails that walk me through different ideas, picture by picture, from table decor to dramatic, draped entrances to the terrace. She's really that good at taking your vague ideas and creating a concrete plan.
She's really that good at taking your vague ideas and creating a concrete plan. And I speak from experience because I am a planner myself. And even though I pride myself on my organizational skills, planning your wedding, no matter how small it is and how simple you THINK it is going to be, is stressful and time consuming for the bride...and Kim really knows how to take the pressure off. She HANDMADE our wedding favors (miniature boxes with succulents inside), she negotiated with multiple vendors to arrange the best prices for vintage tea sets for the post-wedding brunch, a lovely vintage seating area on the terrace (complete with sofa, vintage clock, candle sticks, a trunk, etc. - you seriously have to see it to believe it),
a beautifully decorated arch, a dramatic, billowy draped entrance way with lanterns...I'm just getting started here but the word limit is fast approaching. What really, really blew my mind was that I sent her a picture of a table setting on pinterest and she not only took that idea and re-created it, she improved upon it with her own touches-my photographer said that it was a joy to capture this wedding and its creativity). This doesn't even include the vegan wedding cake. She. baked. a. vegan. wedding. cake. ..AMAZING. I need a whole other chapter to discuss her skills at the evening party hosted off site-she made my friend's backyard into a wedding wonderland. In sum, it was perfection.
