Every wedding and event is unique in it's own way, similar to our personalities. Because of this we have packages from the couple on-the-go to the most organized couples. We started Rachel Kendall Events with the mission of being able to tweak any proposal for the needs of our clients. If you don't see what you're looking for below, just shoot us a line and we are happy to customize a proposal just for you!
Reach out to us via email, our website form or phone and tell us a little about your wedding or event. The more info [date, venue, guest size, style in mind, etc] the better for us to have an initial idea of the scope and get our wheels turning!
We will schedule a meeting, whether in-person, on the phone, or video chat. We like to get as much info about your upcoming wedding or event as soon as possible, as well as learn a little more about your personality, to draft up a proposal. We love all those little details!
We will take all our notes from our chat and draft up a personalized proposal for your review. Each proposal is customized for your specific wedding or event, and we're able to edit and tweak to your needs.
Once you're ready to move forward we will send over a contract and invoice to make it official. We require a 50% deposit upon signing and the remainder is due 30 days before the event.
As soon as the contract & deposit are in, we will invite you to your own wedding or event folder to hit the ground running on the planning. In the folder will be a "Let's Get To Know You" Form to help us prioritize your needs and learn more about your event, as well as various other materials depending on your planning package. This is where all the magic will happen!

"I honestly cannot say enough amazing things about my experience working with Rachel for the month leading up to my wedding day. I am a full time working, type-A personality bride who had A LOT going on when it came to the planning. Rachel's guidance and direction leading up to the day before she was even technically in that "month-of" go-time was so helpful. When the time came for Rachel to jump in with vendor communication, coordination of decor, seating charts, etc. it was like all my worries had lifted and I could focus on the special time happening in my life and how exciting it is to be engaged. The wedding day she continued to amaze - she kept things on timeline to a T, even when we had to switch things around secretly when one of the bridal party members mentioned a surprise toast. She helped in every single way possible and completely exceeded expectations. HUGE recommendation for any and ALL brides!"
"Hiring Rachel was one of the best decisions of our entire wedding process. Her attention to detail, ability to see the scope of your vision, calm demeanor, and can-do attitude made her the perfect ring-leader for our wedding weekend! Rachel has incredible tenacity and such wisdom that we knew we were in great hands from start to finish. No question was too small or detail too obscure - Rachel was the absolute best!"
"Where to begin!? Rachel is down-to-earth, fun, professional, has great ideas, and you can tell that this is her area of expertise! For us, although Rachel was hired only as a month-of wedding coordinator, she was a great resource throughout the entire year up until our big day. She was able to help with suggesting certain vendors and was always there if I needed to run an idea by her! When our big day was approaching, we learned the week before, that Hurricane Florence would possibly be arriving during our OUTSIDE wedding. In a short amount of time, Rachel was able to find an alternative venue that we could possibly use if Hurricane Florence would be hitting our region (talk about incredible!). Luckily, between all of the weather dancing and good vibes, the hurricane took a southwestern turn and we were spared! Our wedding day turned out spectacular and it was everything and more than what we imagined! For me, the thing that meant the most to me was that she treated us with respect throughout the entire process. I can't thank Rachel enough for all that she did to make the biggest day of our lives, beyond stellar! Thank you, Rachel!"
"Rachel is a master of making things happen and making things just beautiful! My husband and I got engaged in July 2017, and decided to get married April 2018. However, we didn't decide on that date until, like, Christmas! So I had four months to throw a wedding together. That wasn't going to happen- until I found Rachel Kendall Events. Rachel immediately started collecting information from me so she could turn and burn, and boy is she on fire! The whole wedding was planned- I kid you not- by February. She found the exact vendors to fit my vibe and helped me organize the finer details. She also helped me do some DIY stuff that helped bring a totally personalized touch to the wedding decor. Did I mention I didn't know weddings had to be decorated? Good thing I had Rachel- she took the time to explain and curate the finer details that really did end up mattering to me and making the day extra special. Here's the thing- your wedding should be the happiest, most fun, and most memorable day of your life (so far.) Rachel will completely take away the stress of planning and emailing and calling people you don't know- allowing you to just enjoy the whole experience. She's also cool and nice, like, I would totally just hang out and have a glass of wine with her."
"Rachel was everything we could have asked for in a wedding planner and then some! My now husband and I were hesitant to hire a full wedding planner, but with crazy demanding work schedules and personal commitments, we found ourselves 6 months from our intended wedding weekend and not a single piece in place for the big day. As soon as Rachel came on board, she started working tirelessly, pulling off the wedding of our dreams in a few short months. As the Mother of the Bride has said more than once since the big day, 'without Rachel you two wouldn't have had a wedding, and with Rachel, you had the perfect wedding!'"
