Valarie Kirkbride and her team were our wedding planners last January - and she hit it out the park. I couldn't recommend her enough - she really is the best one out there in my opinion. Throughout our 8 months of planning, she was easy to work with, had great vendors at her disposal, saved me tons of money by going through lesser known, but quality outlets. The reception went off perfectly, I was worry-free the entire day. Her fees were reasonable, and in the end she definitely paid for herself with the savings we realized.
