Honey treated us like family throughout the process - very collaborative and creative!

How did wedding planner make your day special?

On the wedding day, Honey and Nicole (who helped as a second planner on the day of), got there early and set up everything like it was out of a magazine. They brought all of my ideas to life and ran around making sure every detail was in place while I got ready with my girls and enjoyed the moment. Honey made everything so painless and I am SO grateful to have had her (and the KMD team) by my side for our wedding!

How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla?

I'm not exactly the "bridezilla" type, but I am very type-A, armed with my to-do lists, excel sheets, and binders. I was convinced that I didn't need a planner, and should spend the money elsewhere for the wedding. But at the end of the day, it comes down to this: on the day of, you don't want your BMs, moms, friends, or yourself to have to run around prepping flowers, lining people up, timing everything, coordinating with vendors, organizing paperwork, taking care of payments and tips, etc. The list literally goes on forever. Having Honey by my side just let me relax (seriously) and enjoy both the planning process and day of.

Value of a wedding planner?

If there is one "splurge" that I would recommend to anyone over nicer flowers, a more expensive dress, or anything else, it is to first get a planner - ideally one from KMD. We ended up saving money on a lot of things (especially decor) because Honey knew all the tips and tricks on where to buy certain items and knew the quantities that we actually needed.

Kitty Hawk Beach Wedding

How did wedding planner make your day special?

Kim Moody Design was the perfect choice to plan our wedding. Since we planned a destination wedding, we really relied on KMD expertise and recommendations. They far exceeded our expectations, making our day perfect. Even months after our wedding, guests comment on how much fun the wedding was and what a beautiful job was done with the planning of the event. Kim, Andrew, Kara and Mary Ruth are such professionals and handled so many details that I hadn't even thought of nor worried about. They worked very well with me and my family to coordinate all our ideas and little things we'd picked up for the ceremony and reception, so everything came together beautifully. I highly recommend considering this team for full wedding planning and floral design.

Shannon & Brice Wedding at Fairview Farm

How did wedding planner make your day special?

I love Kim Moody & her team! They went above and beyond to make our day special! My husband and I got married on November 1st and it was the coldest day in November. We originally planned for an outdoor ceremony but since it was cold and super windy, Kim & her team were able to accommodate with any changes that came our way. Everyone worked very hard and our wedding experience was incredibly stress-free. I had complete trust in Kim & her team that they would make everything run smoothly and everyone was extremely pleased with the result. I can't thank Kim Moody and the Kim Moody Design team enough for everything that they did to make our day as fun and special as it was!

Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered?

Kim & her team create such awesome floral designs and centerpieces, and she is excellent at managing vendors, guests, and all of the wedding details!

How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla?

Weather was our only concern since we originally planned an outdoor wedding. She had the ceremony set up indoors in no time and it was set up so nicely! I was so much happier with the way our indoor wedding turned out and I'm so happy that Kim could tackle those changes in such a helpful and timely manner!

Value of a wedding planner?

The day of our wedding, we hardly had to lift a finger! Kim was extremely helpful with everybody, whether it was other vendors, family members, the bridal party, etc. She is very kind and makes sure that everyone is on top of their game. She was always there whenever we needed anything at all. I can't stress enough the value of a wedding planner like Kim Moody to meet all of your wedding needs. She is very affordable and goes above and beyond to make sure that all of your needs are met. I'm so happy that we had Kim there to help make informed, organized decisions and to ensure that everything we planned was executed accordingly!! I love Kim Moody Design and I can't imagine having worked with anyone else. I would recommend Kim Moody Design to anyone and everyone to make their big day a memorable one!!

Kim Moody was so valuable especially since my daughter works as a nurse the night shift and a lot of things had to be done during the day.

Texture Design Studio & Kim Moody are FABULOUS!

How did wedding planner make your day special?

Kim at Texture Design Studio was amazing to work with. She handled every detail of our wedding and reception and all I had to do was show up! From going with me gown shopping to managing all of the vendors, negotiating the best possible rates, and the most beautiful floral design you can imagine, all within our budget! I had complete trust in her than the event would be flawless and I was extremely pleased with the result. She even themed the decor to suit our individual personalities in the two different parts of the reception. Her staff was knowledgeable, efficient, and courteous. Our guests raved about how beautiful everything was and she was the best investment in our wedding budget without question!

Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered?

Kim and her staff handled the entire event. She had more "tricks of the trade" that I ever imagined. She handled all of the vendors with incredible ease. She negotiated lower fees than we could have imagined on quite a few of our vendors, and was able to put her continued relationships with them to guarantee those. In the money she saved us, it came close to paying her fees!

How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla?

Although the bakery created the wrong cake for us, Kim was able to negotiate a full refund for it. The rental company missed a few items off the order, and Kim noticed it in plenty of time for them to do a second delivery. She politely sat us down and talked to us about the cake, and we didn't even know about the rental order until after the fact. She did an incredible job of handling all the details for us.

Value of a wedding planner?

BEST MONEY WE SPENT ON OUR WEDDING, HANDS DOWN! Kim is the best and I can't imagine having worked with anyone else! She insured every detail ran smoothly and took the stress off of us! Kim's eye for design really helped us to achieve an amazing event.

Thom and Jenny's Wedding, Delfosse Vineyards

How did wedding planner make your day special?

Kim from Texture Design Studio did an amazing job with our wedding, She handled flowers, setup, vendor logistics, and coordinating the schedule of the event.

In a few brief planning sessions in person, over the phone, and by email, Kim was able to help us execute a very modern, simple, and elegant wedding and reception at a vineyard in Nelson County, VA. She gave us creative ideas, affordable solutions, and not to mention, tons of supportive feedback. The phrase, "whatever you guys want!" was a common response to some of our specific wishes and crazy ideas.

The weekend of the wedding, Kim was incredibly helpful and committed to making our event a success. From the wedding rehearsal to the last dance, she was always nearby, ready to help with anything. We were very lucky to have her and we would recommend her very highly.

Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered?

Creative ideas for flowers, centerpieces, other decorations. Knowledgeable input about the typical pitfalls and complications to watch out for, as well as extensive knowledge about all the traditional ins-and-outs of wedding protocol.

How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla?

The weekend of the event, we hardly had to lift a finger because Kim was so helpful - she gave the wedding party and family instructions on where to go and what to do, she coordinated all the vendor deliveries and setup, and she was right there nearby whenever we needed anything at all. We especially appreciated two very important things: she encouraged us to take a few minutes of alone time together walking through the vineyards for some photographs after the ceremony while guests were being seated - which was a very refreshing and special moment for us. And she made sure the catering staff delivered fresh glasses of wine whenever we needed it!

Value of a wedding planner?

Since we did a lot of things ourselves, by the time the wedding date arrived, we were a little bit burned out on planning - so Kim's execution of the event was a God-send, giving us a break from planning and letting us just enjoy it. If I had to do it again, I would think it was worth it to just turn over all the planning to Kim, no matter what the price. I strongly recommend to anyone that working with Kim for your planning and wedding coordination will help make things so much easier and enjoyable. Kim is the best!

Thanks, Kim!
Love,
Thom and Jenny
