  • How did wedding planner make your day special? April was amazing from the start. I was planning my wedding from Georgia and in only 3 months total. April went out of her way to work with me via email and phone, and I was able to breathe easy, knowing she had everything under control in her capable hands. My mom was in the area, she was fabulous working with her also! Coordinated everything with us including making the colors work perfectly with the flowers we had picked out. Completely successful and unforgettable experience!
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? April was there every step of the way, she was not only the planner, but our officiator as well. She shared her experiences and offered many suggestions that helped make our day extra special. I could relate to her as well as her family, she puts her all into making everyone feel comfortable and welcome. It's her special day as well, you can tell she loves what she does and it it not just in and out, she takes a part in your life before, during and after!
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? April was able to help my mother relax and feel comfortable with everything, so that she could focus on other details, such as the reception! Everything I had questions on, she had answers and suggestions that put me right at ease. Pictures, phone calls, everything was helpful and the inner- and outer- bridezilla was calmed
  • Value of a wedding planner? Amazing value! I will always remember my special day and remember April and Lorraine (my photographer) for the special day I had on Ft. Myers Beach! I visit my wedding site whenever I am in the area and the days I was there for my wedding. It was more than I had imagined and it was because of April and her staff. I could not recommend a better person to be a wedding planner and she makes sure everything is handled!

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? How did wedding planner make your day special?   Having a wedding from so far away was a scary thought until I found April and her staff.  From the first call until we left for our honeymoon, they were perfect!  April and Susie helped me every step of the way in choosing my venue, decor, bouquets, music and all the little extras which I had no clue would be awaiting us upon our arrival.  April did create my dream wedding!    
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered?   Wow! Where do I start.  April suggested the time for our ceremony which ended up being perfect.    I had selected a location for our ceremony and she also suggested that we possibly think of relocation due to the construction and lack of parking due to this.  We took her advice and it ended up being the option we shoudl have chose from the beginning.  We woudl have never known about this had she not been so familiar with the area, which is another reason I am so happy we went with a local planner to the Sanibel area.    April offered many tips along the way and after a couple times of having her detal them out for me, I started just telling her to go ahead because I knew it would be perfect, I had no doubt and it was!  She gave me tips on hair and make due to the heat and humidity.  The tip for wedding flowers for this time of year was one of the best.  She gave me great tips on each of her photographers which helped me in choosing who was right for me.  The very best was the reminder and tip for our guests to stay hydrated due to the extensive head.  They even brough bug spray!    Wisdom does not begin to describe April and her staff, they are .  They are very experienced with the area, venues an what a wedding day shoud consist ofMy planner was amazing!  
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla?   I actually called April expecting to be a Bridezilla because of being so far away and not knowing what to expect but from the first moment I spoke with her, I knew I was in good hands.  She made me feel so at ease and stressed many times that she is not just a 9 - 5 planner and I could contact her any time of the day.  I never called or sent a email that I did get an immediate response.   There was no reaason to even think of being a Bridezilla, April had it covered!  
  • Value of a wedding planner?   I would honestly say there is NO dollar value comparable to what April Kelley meant to me!   She was well worth every penny spent :)

Review: Jennifer & Scott's "Dream Come True"

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? My planner went above and beyond for me, my husband and our entire family. She did so many extras which made our day even more special. April and Susie assured me from the moment we arrived on Sanibel that everything would be great and the weather could be worked around and she was right. The afternoon shower came but you would have never know it. April and her staff were setting up my ceremony in the rain and had the finishing touches done perfectly right on time. You would have never known there was a hiccup.
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? My planner offered so many tips and suggestions that made my wedding day run so much smoother. Her suggestion on ceremony set-up or my photographer (Lorraine) was somthing I would have never thought of. The suggestions April made for our family and guests activities, accomodations and dining while we were there was so appreciated by all. Then there was her suggestion for or wedding location and reception venue. You would have thought she had known us personally, it was perfect for us!
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? I am sure I was a bit of a Bridezilla but you would have never known. Now matter when I called, emailed or texted April or Susie, they responded to me immediatey and answered any questions or made the changes I wanted almost instantly.
  • Value of a wedding planner? Stress-free prefect wedding day = PRICELESS My suggestion is that anyone having a destintion wedding on Sanibel or Captiva Island use my wedding planner.
