Dear Karen,

As frequent visitors to Bali, we thought that we could arrange our wedding on our own from Singapore. A few phone calls and emails later, we realized our error!

That’s when Karen came in. We sent a few enquiries to wedding planners in Bali and immediately knew that Karen was the one for us – her response was by far the clearest and most professional. Our first Skype meeting with Karen confirmed our choice as we not only felt confident that she was capable, committed, passionate and organized, but we really enjoyed talking to her! It was a relief and a pleasure to hear about Karen’s professional background, her life in Bali, and her fabulous ideas for our wedding.

Our wedding involved guests from Canada, Australia, USA, and Singapore all coming together for a week-long celebration, so there was a lot of coordinating to do beside the wedding itself. Karen helped us with every part of the process – from securing the venue we wanted, to ensuring airport pick up was arranged for our guests. Throughout the year that we worked with Karen, we knew that our plans, preferences, and guests were all well-taken care of. Any time we encountered difficulties or felt stressed about something, a quick Skype with Karen immediately made us feel better.

Meeting Karen in person and accompanying her to visit vendors was a highlight of our wedding planning and probably our year. Not only is Karen knowledgeable and caring, but the people she works with as well. We were blown away by the quality of the work and the passion of the people to whom we were introduced. The food was incredible and we enjoyed every moment of our tasting with the caterer and his team. Floral work and decorations were very special. DJ and photographer were a pleasure to meet and we looked forward to seeing them again on our wedding day.

Our wedding day was perfectly smooth and enjoyable for everyone. Our daughter was 11 months old at the time of the wedding, and Karen even ensured that all of the staff knew her nap and meal times. The ceremony and reception were incredibly beautiful, so much fun, and a true reflection of our plans and vision.

Our guests were blown away and we still hear that it was “the best wedding ever!” We couldn’t have asked for a better day.

We look forward to catching up with Karen again on our next trip to Bali, and would definitely encourage anyone to work with her to plan their wedding. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
