Kim + Tony believed in fairytales + second chances; in love after loss. And after years of faithful prayers, God led them to each other.
“Faith is a very powerful thing! God always gives me 1000 times more than I could ever imagine for myself; it amazes me!” Kim | bride
They shared vows that made us weep, tears of joy from a father who never thought he’d walk his daughter down the aisle, a choked up daddy as he thanked his daughter for her love through the hard times, an impromptu dance lakeside, uncontrollable belly laughs over dinner, a sunset canoe ride, bubbles and dancing on the dock, and me, being welcomed into it all as not just their wedding planner, but their friend.
“Our wedding ceremony was as much for our parents as it was for Tony and I. My dad and I lost touch with each other for 28 years and we reunited by the grace of God when I was 30 and moved to Texas. We have become very close since.
To have him at my wedding and walk me down the aisle meant the world to me! The gift I gave him was a picture frame that said, “Dad, of all the walks we’ve taken, this one is my FAVOURITE!”
“So much love and heart felt words spoken that night. Many laughs too!
Tony gave his mom a really beautiful set of glasses engraved with a quote from Mark Twain: “My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it!”
“We would highly recommend Kailey-Michelle Events! She has the patience of a saint and always wears a huge smile. She is a woman who puts her heart and soul into her work!”
“We feel very blessed knowing she was there. Our wedding was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined!”
“Knowing we wanted a destination wedding, we were under the gun to find someone to help us coordinate everything from the States. We found Kailey initially and honestly thought we would interview several people before selecting someone. But Kailey impressed us right away and when we met her at the hotel, we were immediately knew that we were in good hands!”
“It was so nice to be able to relax and know that Kailey and her wonderful assistant, Amy, had everything under control. With just 10 people in our total party we wondered if we really needed a wedding planner, however throughout the 4 months of planning, and especially on our wedding day we realized it was a necessity! Everything was so beautiful and stress free. We truly enjoyed the entire day!” ~ Kim | Bride
Truly these two are such gems and I loved every minute with Kim and Tony. I’m so grateful for their trust and for them welcoming me into this chapter of their love story with open arms. Not to mention being seated at the dining table alongside their closest friends and family. This was a first for both myself and Amy; we were touched and will forever treasure the day we shared.
For Kim and Tony’s day, Kailey-Michelle did everything from helping the bride get ready, to making sure everyone had water, decorating the ceremony and reception, getting a canoe and even prepared their honeymoon suite! There are a gazillion things done behind the scenes and she puts in so much care and detail into each of her couples. We absolutely LOVE working with KME!

Aside from working with this sweet and genuine couple who brought us to tears multiple times throughout the day, the cast of professionals who came together to make their day happen was outstanding. I never take for granted the people and the passions I’ve been privy to meet, work with and now call friends. Kim and Tony’s wedding was a meeting of none of other than those professionals!
A special shout out to Matt and Carissa Kennedy who make every wedding memorable in our working together. Besides the obvious talent they boast as a dynamo husband and wife team, I could not appreciate more their commitment and care for the overall client experience. They work as team, not only with each other, but with all professionals ensuring a seamless environment and fun camaraderie between everyone.
