Karla is an excellent planner.  She takes your wedding ideas to the next level.  Everything I said I wanted she made happen.  We literally had a few days of planning and she turned my wedding into a rustic whimsical masterpiece.  If you want a planner who listens and makes miracles happen she is your lady.

I’m super excited to see that Karla has finally put all of her creativeness into an actual business that will give back to her in more ways than she gives! Karla helped plan, create and decorate all the ideas that were stuck in my head for my special day She goes above and beyond, and seriously doesn’t stop until the day is over and the doors are locked. I would highly recommend Karla!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Karla with Petals and Lace. From the beginning process of planning my wedding until my handsome husband and I said goodbye to our family and friends, I never had a single worry. Karla made sure that everything and everyone was taken care of and perfect. Things I didn’t think of or had forgotten she was ten steps ahead. Going through the wedding planning process was stressful without a planner and I can’t imagine doing it over or rewinding time and not having Karla.

My biggest love for Karla was her genuine care and concern for my husband and I to have not only the best experience but that our day was everything we had envisioned or hoped for. She goes beyond her duty as a planner and coordinator because she cares it’s not just a job for her.

My husband and I paid for our wedding on our own so counting each and every penny was essential. I planned the majority of our wedding and had secured all of our vendors. However, I struggled with the actual execution of our wedding day. When I began searching for a day of planner the monetary investment was absolutely insane. I was looking for someone to oversee the day of and many people wanted thousands of dollars. Spending that much money seemed ridiculous. Karla was not only completely affordable but was absolutely willing and able to oversee our wedding. Hiring her made it easy for me to enjoy getting ready with my bridesmaids and mom without worrying about if vendors had showed up, if tables and chairs were set up, if centerpieces were in place, if the cake was ready and if people were moving to the designated areas. All of the fuss and worry was lifted from me and taken over by Karla. I literally could not have enjoyed my wedding day if it wasn’t for her. I felt that I could breathe because she not only had my back but was willing to move heaven and earth to ensure my wedding day was exactly what I had envisioned in my mind. She stayed calm and helped to keep me calm when issues arose. A river rescue happened during my reception and a corsage was missing from the floral order. Both seemingly major things but Karla handled it with ease and I didn’t think about it not even once after she informed me of the issues and told me it was under control. In retrospect I would have spent thousands of dollars on Karla because next to my wedding dress she deserved each and every penny!

Karla Crisp is a true dream to work with.  My husband and I debated whether to hire a month of planner, and we are so thankful we did.  Not only did she help the month of, but she went out of her way to help months before.  She was a great buffer for issues getting to me, as well.  I honestly feel like I gained a friend through all of it, and am so happy with our wedding because of her.  I highly recommend Karla to any and all brides to be.

“Karla was simply awesome. From our first meeting, I knew that she would be the one to help us create our vision for our wedding day while respecting our budget. Karla not only kept our best interest at heart, she also never compromised quality. She pointed us in the direction of established and trustworthy vendors that were in budget. Whatever challenge or idea we came up with, she went with. She followed my Pinterest board, and collaborated with us on ideas and options that were realistic. One of the best things about our experience with Karla, was that when we ran into issues (which happened more than once), Karla ALWAYS had a ‘plan B’ for anything. She understands that even when things are set, problems can still come up (because we are dealing with humans, after all) and she is ready to tackle any task. Karla was also extremely professional and kept us on track throughout the entire wedding planning process. At our meetings, she would ask progress on tasks, and let me know what I needed to work on next. Karla was completely invested in our wedding day; she was excited for us and she truly cared about us. We would highly recommend Petals and Lace Events for your wedding. She is honest, respectful, and has a true eye for creating your vision of your perfect day.”

“Karla is absolutely amazing! I really have no idea what we would have done without her. She was there every step of the way, answering any questions I had, giving tips and suggestions, and handling all the details that would have completely stressed me out. We were able to enjoy our wedding day and not have to worry about a single thing thanks to her. The whole night went smoothly, and if anything did go wrong I had no idea about it because she took care of everything.
She’s organized, positive, and genuinely wants you to have the best wedding experience possible. So if you are considering hiring a wedding planner..just stop thinking about it and book Karla! You definitely will be glad you did!”
