Organization, positive demeanor, professionalism and passion...

Kendle was an important part of our Walt Disney Studios Special Events team. She is terrific -- and she excelled at every project that was assigned to her. Her organization, positive demeanor, professionalism and passion always showed as she worked with us on a number of large events. She will be missed, and we wish her all the best. Anyone would be lucky to have Kendle as their event planner.

Kendle! I don't know what I would have done without you...

Being from Texas, I really wanted the perfect, picturesque California wedding. Kendle made all that happen! From our first initial meeting to the night of my wedding, she made everything completely seamless and easy. She worked with all vendors to negotiate rates and get our budget down where it needed to be. Her team was amazing and not only professional, but polished, friendly and motivated to make the day as beautiful as I had hoped. I had a worry free engagement knowing she was handling it 1500 miles away. Thank you to you and your team, Kendle! I don't know what I would have done without you...I probably would have had to get married in 110 degree Texas heat!

Kendle is one of the most hard working and dedicated people I have met...

Kendle blew it out of the park for our wedding! She was there every step of the way, defiantly the most helpful person in my whole wedding planning process. To be honest I do not know how we would have pulled it all off with out her! My family owns the ranch that we had our wedding on and Kendle was so respectful of the property and very professional in the whole process, it was not easy to host the wedding out on the ranch with the ceremony in one location and the reception in another, but leave to Kendle to pull it all off seamlessly. She was also a great support day of wedding when before walking down the aisle my anxiety picked up, she was there with some champagne and was a great calming presence, insuring me everything was working out perfectly. Kendle is one of the most hard working and dedicated people I have met, HIRE HER or you will be sorry. Thanks again Kendle!"

She leaves nothing to chance and overlooks no detail...

It is hard for me to find words to describe Kendle and her fantastic staff. I have worked on various events with her for over five years now and every event is more beautiful than the last. Not only does Kendle have exquisite taste, but she is one of the most professional and personable women I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Kendle handles every detail of our event productions, from scouting locations to selecting caters, florists and music/musicians. She leaves nothing to chance and overlooks no detail. I will undoubtedly hire Kendle again to handle my production needs. I highly recommend Lauren Kendle Event Productions -­‐ their work is superb.

"Wedding planner" doesn't do her justice! Kendle is a genius organizer...

Kendle was my wedding planner for my wedding in May. "Wedding planner" doesn't do her justice! Kendle is a genius organizer, manager, coordinator and problem solver. She is prepared for everything! She does endless jobs at the same time, in different places, and is always calm, kind, pleasant and a joy to be around. The wedding was flawless because of her. She thought of countless things and details that I had not, which all added up to a wedding that every one of my guests said was the most perfect, beautiful wedding they had ever been to. They all noted that there was never a moment of confusion as the guests moved through arrival, ceremony, and reception. Everyone who met her told me how impressed they were with her, and I am still amazed at what she accomplished!

She took all the pressure off me as mother of the bride...

Kendle was indispensable in preparing for our daughter's out of town wedding. Her planning and check lists ahead of time were very thorough. She was easy to work with and thought of everything. The day before the wedding, Kendle helped set up, receive deliveries, and kept track of anything that was missing or not on time. She orchestrated the rehearsal efficiently. On the big day, she seemed to be everywhere, without ever being obtrusive. She was calm, reassuring, and dealt with all vendors and entertainers promptly and elegantly. She took all the pressure off me as mother of the bride, so that I could attend the event without worry. I couldn't have planned such a special event without Kendle's fabulous organization. Every detail was addressed. Nothing was forgotten. Even the clean-up was supervised beautifully. I highly recommend that you hire Kendle for any project, large or small. Tell her everything, and nothing will be missed.

If you are looking for perfection...

I have been working with Kendle for years and can honestly say that she is one of the best coordinators in the business. My company provides bands for weddings, parties and corporate events, and I am always happy when I see Kendle's name as the coordinator. Her attention to detail and sincere concern to see that everything goes smoothly, guarantees a flawless event and a very happy client at the end of the day. If you are looking for perfection, I would highly recommend Kendle!

...My sister could not have made a better choice...

Although my sister insisted on planning her wedding herself, she decided to hire Kendle for her "day of coordination" and could not have made a better choice! My sister was able to enjoy every moment of her special day while Kendle handled every minute detail. All we had to do was follow her queues. The entire wedding was amazing and my sister and her husband said it was the best day of their lives. Kendle is extremely professional, organized, efficient, and has a friendly, outgoing personality that allows her to accomplish anything with ease. I would highly recommend Kendle to anyone who is looking for a flawless and joyous wedding.

We didn't have to worry about anything...

We highly recommend Kendle and her team at LKE for your Santa Barbara-area wedding. In our very first meeting, she made us feel comfortable, confident and excited about our big day. We knew immediately that she was the super agent we were searching for! Kendle pulled out all of the stops for us and delivered above and beyond our expectations. She kept us on task every step of the way, never rushing us or letting us fall behind. She never once let anything fall through the cracks. Her team was fantastic the day of and the week leading up to it. We didn't have to worry about anything once we all agreed and cleared plans with her before the big day. Kendle brought a rolodex of trustworthy vendors that added to our wedding team. Kendle put so much thought, effort, and dedication into making sure that our wedding day was every bit as wonderful as we both had dreamed. We highly recommend Kendle and the LKE team!

She and her staff were able to make our day special and memorable...

I think one of the greatest compliments I received during my wedding day was "WOW! I can't believe how calm you are." All thanks to Kendle! I was able to enjoy my ENTIRE day, without worrying about one thing. At first, when I started planning my wedding, I thought I would be able to do it ALL on my own. I sure was wrong but happy that I figured out I would need help before the wedding day came. Throughout the day Kendle and her staff guided my husband and I through every step. Kendle and her staff were very professional, organized, and easy to work with. Kendle's experience and knowledge was evident throughout the days leading up to the wedding as well as the wedding day. She and her staff were able to make our day special and memorable. I would highly recommend her services for a wedding, or any special event. She allowed my friends, family, husband and myself to really be able to savor and take in every moment of our wedding day. Thank you Kendle!

There is not another person on this earth who I would more wholeheartedly recommend...

Kendle and her team exemplify the utmost in professionalism and perfection. She takes all of the responsibility and worry off of the shoulders of the bride and handles it herself with style and grace. She thinks of EVERYTHING.... from the smallest of details to how to make the largest of details fit into your day seamlessly. When there's a problem to be solved she handles it completely and without hesitation (as in when I forgot the rings!) and keeps the day flowing smoothly. There is not another person on this earth who I would more wholeheartedly recommend to make perfection out of your special day than Kendle.

Her organization skills rival those of anyone I have ever met...

Kendle and her staff were absolutely amazing. We hired her in the spring for my fall wedding and I promise you, she is worth every penny. I promise you that if you hire Lauren Kendle Event Production, you will be so thankful that you did! Kendle thought of every single detail and had checklists and spreadsheets for everyone involved. Her organization skills rival those of anyone I have ever met. She helped keep all of the vendors on the same page and was always there to make sure the event was flawless. Honestly, she took care of absolutely everything from the time we hired her until long after the event was over. It was such a relief knowing that the only thing I had to focus on was marrying the man of my dreams. If I could give LK Events 10 stars, I would. Words cannot describe what an amazing woman she is and what a great service her company provides.

...we don't have to worry about the timeline and are able to focus on capturing the events of the day...

Working with Kendle is a dream. As a photographer it makes all the difference when a wedding day is well though out and planned -­‐ we don't have to worry about the timeline and are able to focus on capturing the events of the day. I have had the pleasure of working with Kendle on more than one wedding and the brides are relaxed, the guests well taken care of and the day flows perfectly.

Oh, how I love working with people who are professional yet friendly when working.

After almost thirty years in the event industry, one develops a sense about people. I can tell a lot about someone within the first few moments after we first speak. I've learned to trust this instinct and when I first met Kendle and her team, it was evident that she and her co-workers were talented and a real pro's. Oh, how I love working with people who are professional yet friendly when working. There is never any reason or time in this profession to yell or create havoc. Things change by the moment and I know I can count on Kendle and her team to work side by side with me and other vendors. We simply find a way to make everything work.

Kendle is honest, full of integrity, experienced, professional, and extremely calm...

If you are looking for an event coordinator look no further! Kendle and her crew are the very best! Kendle has coordinated a few events for me and event is complete perfection. Recently, I hosted a 4th of July party for approximately 125 people. Kendle helped me plan, organize, pick up items, set up, manage the event and clean up, too! Kendle doesn't just direct her crew and vendors she is completely involved and a hands on person. She has a creative eye to make everything look appealing and beautiful. Kendle is honest, full of integrity, experienced, professional, and extremely calm, she can handle everything. Thank you for making our events amazing!!

Kendle just doesn't meet expectations; she exceeds them...

As the mother of the bride, I'm writing to gush over Kendle and her staff. She is the planner in Santa Barbara if you have a budget to work with, want organization, love fresh ideas, appreciate responsiveness, open to new ideas, and will work tirelessly to make sure she has met your expectations and vision. But Kendle just doesn't meet expectations; she exceeds them! Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but when you live in Texas, it's a whole new ball game. We trusted Kendle and her local knowledge and relationships with vendors in the area. She was determined to stay within our budget and was relentless when it came to the best price. The wedding was beautiful, stress-free, organized, lovely, delicious, and the most memorable evening for our guests that came all the way from Texas. Thank you Kendle for the best wedding ever!

Kendle is the most amazing event planner. She made my wedding just perfect! Her team is also wonderful. They made sure everything ran smoothly and on time for my wedding. I did not have a worry in the world the day of my wedding. I felt extremely comfortable handing everything over to her. She is not only professional but also fun and caring. She does everything in her power to make sure the bride feels like a princess and all the details are exact. Kendle is not only organized but also has an endless supply of ideas & wonderful vendors to choose from. She listens to what your vision is and makes it materialize. I wish I could hold my wedding all over again. It was the best day of my life, thanks to Kendle!
