"I don’t know where to begin this review. Kayla was recommend by a friend so there was some hesitancy in using ‘a friend of a friend.’ Kayla quickly put me at ease as she is the ultimate professional. She came to the first meeting ready to work and listened intently to what my daughter wanted for her day. (I cannot emphasis enough that she is a good listener). She asked many questions and took many notes. She is creative and offered suggestions to enhance the ideas my daughter had. These suggestions were the small touches that made the day perfect.

The thing I appreciated the most about Kayla was her demeanor — she always appeared calm and everything was handled beautifully. I did not want to be concerned with details on the day of my daughter’s wedding — I wanted to enjoy it and not make any further decisions. Kayla made sure she knew all of our wishes ahead of time. When we walked into the reception, it was stunning. In the beginning I would have said we didn’t need an event planner. I could not have been more wrong. There was so much to do that day that I never would have enjoyed the day and I would have been uncomfortable asking that many people to help. I will always be eternally grateful to Kayla for implementing our vision for that day and making it perfect." - Kelly (Mother of the Bride)

"My husband and I got married at the Catamaran Resort and chose Kayla and Simply Gorgeous Events to help make our dream wedding come true. Kayla worked with me to create a plan that fit my needs and budget and focused on the areas where I needed most help. Our initial meetings were done remote as we lived out of state, but through our calls you could hear in her voice the passion she has for planning weddings. When we finally met her in person, she was just so genuine, bubbly and sweet. She becomes your friend through it all. 

When I first began working with Kayla I had visions all over the place and she helped me choose a theme and style and show me examples of what it would look good with the items I had already chosen. I am the type of individual who has a hard time delegating projects to other people, but Kayla was great about just doing things..especially when she sensed I was becoming stressed out. She did so many things behind the scenes that made my wedding go off without any glitches. 

From the moment I woke up Kayla and her team had everything under control and worked with all my vendors to make sure they had what they needed. If anything was an issue, I can tell you that I never heard or knew anything about it... Kayla was on top of everything. I was able to spend a few minutes prior to the ceremony in the reception room and when I walked in I was holding back tears. The room was beyond anything I could have dreamed of. She had focused on every last detail and added touches that made the room. 

I had been warned by everyone that something will go wrong on your wedding day, but because of Kayla and all the other wonderful vendors, my day was perfect and everything went off as planned. It makes you feel great to hear employees at the resort say they had never seen the ballroom look so amazing. If you are planning a wedding, I highly recommend Kayla and Simply Gorgeous Events!" 


"Kayla did an amazing job for my daughters wedding.  Everything went so smooth and we didn't have to worry about a thing.  I would highly recommend Kayla to anyone!" -Jill O. (Mother of the Bride)

"We hired Kayla at Simply Gorgeous Events as a day-of planner due to our venue having a coordinator. After working with her, I wish we were able to use her for our entire wedding! Kayla always responded right away to any questions we had, and was able to foresee/address any issues or wedding elements we may have missed. She made sure we did not have to worry about any little details the day of the wedding. We could not have had a more pleasant wedding experience, and would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a planner!" - Victoria W. (Bride)


"Kayla is awesome awesome awesome. That's how awesome she is. We had her as our Day of Coordinator, yet honestly if I had known how incredibly helpful she was I would've booked her for more of the process! She met with us, talked with us in detail over the phone and email, offered great suggestions, let us use some of her own pieces for decor, was very professional, flexible, and responsive to our needs. We had some tables that were weren't sure how to decorate and she just said "trust me I'll make it look good" and boy did she!

All of the tables were detailed and placed with care. Not only is she great with decor but also with keeping things moving smoothly and taking all of the worries off of your plate. She contacted vendors and made sure all payments and contracts were taken care of in advance. She handled everything with ease and confidence, enabling everyone to have the best time! I would recommend her to everyone!" -Vanessa D. (Bride)

"Kayla was absolutely amazing in helping me plan my wedding. She was always available whenever I had a question, and gave me wonderful suggestions. She also help me make sure that some of more out-there ideas went off without a hitch, and eased the way with some difficult vendors. Highly, highly recommended!" -Joann G. (Bride)

"My husband and I got married in Rancho Palos Verdes last summer. Kayla was so on top of it and made it all look effortless. Definitely recommend her for day-of coordination and more!" -Heather M. (Bride)

"Kayla is amazing!! We hired her as our day of coordinator after losing our first choice to a double booking...I wasn't very happy about it at first, but I am so glad that it happened now! Kayla was so incredible! So professional, so organized, and such a sweet person! We actually got to enjoy our wedding day because Kayla took care of all the details!" - Lauren S. (Bride)
