My husband and I are so grateful we found Keira to help us in the last ~6 months of wedding planning. We had just moved, started new careers, and were renovating a house, and had no idea how we were going to keep up with the wedding planning process. After we initially met with Keira, she immediately helped us feel less stressed by keeping us on track with all of the small details, communicating with our vendors, and making sure the big day went as smoothly as possible. The monthly video meetings were so helpful, and Keira always made herself available with a quick response via email or text when I had a question or request. The day of the wedding, we had Keira's amazing assistant Diana with us who was also the absolute best. She made us feel so special the entire day-she calmed our nerves, organized the vendors, set up our decorations including a Pittsburgh cookie table, and even delivered appetizer's to our hotel room where we took a moment to relax before the reception began. They truly made us feel so special. We are so happy we chose Simple Elegance Event Co. and would recommend them to anybody looking for a a wedding planner!!

We hired Keira as a wedding coordinator for the month leading up to the wedding and the day-of. I wanted to do most of the planning myself, and was unsure if a coordinator was going to be worth it after I had already planed most everything, but it totally was. I am the epitome of a perfectionist, and I was worried about letting someone else take control, but Keira made me feel relaxed and that she could handle any problems that came our way. She is a straight shooter and a "get-it-done" kind of girl, and that is exactly who I wanted to work with. Would recommend her to everyone planning a wedding in the area.

My wedding was 10.15.22 in Bridgewater NJ. When me and my mom started planning she mentioned she wanted to have a wedding planner an d at first I wasn’t sure if it was worth the extra money. Well let me tell you how wrong i was!!! Keira was AMAZING and really a life saver. She kept us so organized and on track. When it was September (a month out) we really didn’t have much to do because we had gotten it done prior. She was there anytime for my questions and concerns. The day of the wedding she really was a life saver, i didn’t have worry about anything! She told me where i needed to be and what i needed to do. She made the wedding day so so smooth. I recommend Keira to any bride. Me and my mom and now husband loved working with her. I cant wait until my next big event so we can link up with her again!!!

My now husband and I chose the month of coordination package. Keira has been an absolute godsend. She is so organized that she was able to remind me of small details I may have missed. She thinks of everything! She is the sweetest most down to earth coordinator you could have, and she constantly checked in on us the day of the wedding to make sure we were doing okay (and got to eat!). I highly recommend Keira!

I booked Keira for Month Of Planning and it was the best decision. She helped coordinate with all vendors and make sure my vision was being met. On the day of, Keira and Diana were amazing! The venue owners unfortunately got sit so if we didn’t have Keira and Diana there; I have no idea how everything would have gone so smoothly. They took over anything that the venue owners would have checked on and made sure to keep in contact with them during the event. I never thought I would need a wedding planner but it was such a good decision.

If you do anything, hire this woman to plan your wedding. I'm telling you, just do it. She will literally make all your dreams come true. Not only is she super smart, talented, and detail oriented but she is kind, funny, and extremely thoughtful. My husband and I hired Keira to fully plan our wedding at Skytop Lodge in the Poconos and it was the best decision/purchase we ever made. We live in Florida and felt it was necessary to hire a professional. From my very first phone call with Keira, she took my wedding into her own hands and turned my vision into a reality. My Pinterest board has nothing on my wedding! She is doing exactly what she is meant to do, and she does it graciously. I feel very fortunate and lucky for our paths to have crossed because I truly believe she made our day so perfect, and I am so thankful for her. Our wedding was pure magic, and we owe it all to Keira.

I HIGHLY recommend hiring Keira for your event. She was extremely organized, very responsive through email and so great to work with. She found creative solutions to issues and was on top of every detail. On the day of my wedding, any question I had she was already on it. She truly exceeded my expectations throughout the whole process. 10/10 would recommend, don’t even think about it - just hire her :)
Sabrina | Bride | October 2022 | Wedding Management
Keira did an amazing job coordinating our big day! With her help, our wedding was beautiful and went as smoothly as possible. The value of her guidance throughout the planning process and all of her help during the wedding cannot be overstated. We are very thankful that she was part of our team and we would recommend her services to anyone.
Kacey | Bride | September 2022 | Wedding Management
Keira was the absolute best!! She always made herself available. She offered a calming presence during a very stressful time. Keira was organized, efficient, and always willing to chase down third party to-dos. I felt I could really trust her in the planning process and she ensured everything went smoothly during the day of. I would highly recommend working with Keira!
Julia | Bride | August 2022 | Full Planning
Keira was the BEST!! I was so nervous and on the fence about hiring a planner but my husband and I walked away from our wedding saying the best money we spent was hiring simple elegance event co. She TRULY took away all of my stress which was exactly what I was searching for. She was always professional and punctual and even better, I felt like she truly cared about making sure our day was perfect. She worked so well with my venue and all my vendors loved her. I just can't say enough good things.
Julia | Bride | July 2022 | Wedding Management
Keira was very responsive and pulled everything together for us. On the day of she made everything run smoothly and kept us calm when the rain started to fall. Thankfully with just about a 20 minute rain delay she got everything going and back on schedule and made the day go just as we had hoped.
Samantha | Bride | May 2022 | Wedding Management
Keira was so amazing! My special day wouldn't of been pulled off without her. The month leading up to it she was so helpful and went above and beyond to help with last minute details. During the day some problems arose due to my other vendors and she handled everything so perfectly, before telling me about a problem she already had a solution. Kiera and her team were such a blessing to have. I don't know what I would have done without them!
Katie | Bride | October 2021 | Wedding Management
Even if you enjoy planning and are an excellent planner yourself, Keira can not only help you find the little "forget me nots" you might have overlooked, but also help manage the big day itself. When you've planned and worked for a year or more, it's nice to be able to turn everything over to someone capable and detail oriented so you can enjoy the day too! Looking back I wish we'd found Keira sooner, but it was totally worth it to have her by our sides as the Month-Of/Day Of Coordinator. As the MoG hosting the reception and planning it with my DiL (both of us highly detail oriented) we found Keira more than capable of keeping up with our high standards. I can't imagine having gotten through the day without her. She and her assistant coordinator were a calm and reassuring presence from start to finish. Keira is professional but also has an understated sense of fun. If your budget can handle it, at minimum I'd suggest the Month-Of service as it includes Keira's attendance at the rehearsal the night before, as well as an assistant coordinator on the day of the wedding. If you've found Simple Elegance a little to late for the entire month, don't worry. Contact Keira and see what you can work out. It might be nice to have some "day after" help as well. We brought some of the decor and in retrospect hadn't realized all the went into "recovery mode". Thankfully our venue was willing and able to hold onto our items until we could retrieve them but not all venues are or can be that understanding. Best of Luck with your special day!

Keira was absolutely wonderful! I thought I knew what I was doing before I hired her but I am SO GLAD I did! There were so many little details and nuances I never would have thought of, but Keira did! Throughout the whole experience she was so responsive and was there to help the day run smooth. I’m so glad we choose her to help us out!
Brynn | Bride | September 2021 | Wedding Management
Hiring a wedding planner was the best decision I made my entire wedding. I had pushed my wedding ahead an entire year due to Covid and really didn’t want to finish planning the rest but my wedding planner turned that all around. Keira was super helpful and responsive. She took her time to review my contracts with vendors and follow up with them to ensure everything was perfect the day of. She handled any problems that arose with professionalism. Keira and her team made my wedding day stress free and memorable.
Lori | Bride | September 2021 | Partial Planning
Simple Elegance Event Co. were absolutely amazing & we are so happy we hired them for our day of coordinator. Keira helped with the details before the wedding and I’m so relief because she helped me piece together things we otherwise would have forgotten. Simone & Diana were lifesavers for the day of the wedding as we didn’t have to worry about anything! They helped coordinate and made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be and on time. We are so grateful for their help. Our DJ even mentioned how amazing they were to work with!
