Married on 08/04/2018
The owner and primary coordinator of St. Augustine Weddings & Special Events is Karen Erwin. She is absolutely amazing. The specificity of our wedding planning situation included attending graduate ... Read more school, having a nine-year-old daughter, and my husband having long and unpredictable work hours. Due to my husband wanting the wedding to occur within six months of proposal and our busy schedule, I required a wedding planner. Karen was the first planner of five to respond within three hours of my initial e-mail. We scheduled our first, free of charge phone consultation for an evening at eight o’clock pm to accommodate our schedules. The initial consult lasted two hours. She patiently answered all our questions and explained all details thoroughly. An important detail that is exclusive to Karen’s services is that she only does one wedding per week there for the week of your wedding, YOU are her MAIN priority. To accommodate our hectic schedules our phone meetings often occurred later in the evening between eight and nine pm which is later than acceptable for most businesses. When picking our vendors, we told her our desires and she e-mailed us three, spot on options to review that matched our wants. All her recommended vendors were fabulous making it difficult to choose but she scheduled meetings and tastings with them to help us choose. She scheduled and accompanied us (per our request) to meetings during two weeks over the six-month planning period that I had school breaks. Our nine-year-old daughter came to one day long tasting where Karen even scheduled time to play at the park. Parking there is a big deal, but her itineraries are so detailed that we never had to worry. EVERY vendor doted on her. The process of planning our wedding and the actual day of our wedding was worry free. We feel truly blessed that Karen placed in our lives to handle our special day. Everything was perfect, a true fairytale, and better than I ever dreamed of!

Excellent guidance and
Karen Erwin is a truly amazing wedding planner; her advice and assistance was indispensable in making my daughter's wedding perfect. She was always organized and timely, recommended excellent vendors, ... Read more vendors, (especially the DJ and the cake baker), and ensured all the vendors were clear on our expectations. But most of all, she listened to my daughter and made certain her wedding was exactly what she wanted. For example, the day before the wedding, one vendor decided to add additional charges, my daughter disagreed as a matter of principle, and Karen suggested a way to move forward with a better plan than the original one. (She even got the vendor to refund the cost of the unused service!) Then, the day of the wedding, Karen negotiated the movement of a guest's huge RV that could've ruined several photos, and she did this by finding them an alternative space and bringing them back in her own car! Karen was truly resourceful and creative, and not only did she resolve the very few unexpected problems we encountered, she planned everything down to the minute so the entire event flowed seamlessly. It was a wonderful day and we are eternally grateful to Karen Erwin for making it happen!
