Princess Sparkle's New Years Eve Wedding
New Years Eve wedding and reception! Kim and her team pulled all the vendors, florals and decorations beautifully. They understood our vision and priorites and worked to make it seamless and special for all of us. As the Mother of the Bride, I was able to truly enjoy the reception and leave the details to them. The communicated with all the vendors, handled all the set up and clean up and kept us on track with our reception timeline. They were professional and unflappable!!
Happy Wife Happy Life
They made the entire wedding process go very smoothly and were a huge help on wedding day making sure everything went right.
Kim and her team worked with us for a customized order that was within our budget. The flowers turned out beautiful and exactly how we wanted.
We cannot emphasize how much we absolutely loved and appreciated the KMD team during our wedding planning journey! We were so lucky to have Kim and her team by our side from the beginning as we were looking for full planning services; planning a wedding can potentially be so stressful but under their guidance, it was a really fun and easy process. KMD also does floral arrangements, which were beautiful! Many of our guests said it was one of the best wedding experiences they've had. The KMD team seriously created our dream wedding day and we are forever grateful to them!
Florals by Kim Moody Design
We used KMD for our wedding florals. We wanted simple but elegant to compliment our beautiful venue. At the beginning there were a couple hiccups with changing staff however Kim and her team worked with us until the day of our wedding to ensure our vision became a reality. I would highly recommend Kim and her team!
Thankful for Kim Moody Design
Without Kim Moody Design, our entire weekend would not have happened. They kept us on-task for months leading up to the wedding, and they tackled all the stressors that day so that we could focus on our bliss. We could not have asked for better!
KMD is Amazing!
Kim Moody Design was the best to work with. I live in Utah, my mom is in Georgia, and we were getting married in Virginia. I was so stressed coordinating all the vendors when I started the wedding planning myself. After phone conferencing with my mom and KMD for the first time, my mom realized how imperative it would be to have her help us through the wedding planning process. KMD was great stepping into the work I had started, and immediately took a huge load off my shoulders. We spent hours on the phone with them. They took the vision of my wedding and added unique design twists to make it even better than we could have imagined. KMD worked with so many different vendors behind the scenes to ensure our day went perfectly. They worked super hard to make the ceremony and reception spaces perfect for our guests. The KMD Team made sure my ideas as the bride, came first. We also did our florals through Kim Moody, and everyone raved about how beautiful our flower were. There was a little bit of time where the company went through some staffing changes are were spread a bit thin and they weren't quite as responsive as I was used to. But in the end, our wedding came together perfectly and we know we could not have done it without Kim Moody Design!
Highly Recommend KMD
Kim Moody Design was essential for our special day. We did partial planning and KMD was there throughout the process the big day and was available by email at any time to answer any questions or give suggestions or ideas. We are so happy that we decided to go with Kim Moody Design for planning. We also did our florals through KMD and we were very happy with how all of the flowers turned out. We would seriously recommend KMD for planning and florals.
Kim Moody Design gave us our dream wedding!
Words will not even be able to describe how amazing Kim Moody Design is, but I’ll try ;) When I started the wedding planning process, I knew that I was going to need some help. I interviewed in person with multiple wedding planners in the Richmond area. Then, I knew my search was over when I spoke with the team at KMD one night on the phone. I didn’t need to meet with them to know that THIS WAS MY TEAM! I spoke with them for about 30 minutes about what Kim Moody Design had to offer & their work ethic and I was sold. I went with the partial planning option and couldn’t be happier with everything the team at KMD have done for us. They made the wedding planning process easy. They were also there to refer vendors, answer questions, offer opinions. She literally has the answer to everything! Kim went above and beyond to make sure that I was well taken care of. To make the wedding planning process even easier (and better) I used a lot of Kim Moody Design’s services. They have rental décor that we used for a lot of our decorations. We also used their floral service for all of our flowers, which were AMAZING! We used them for stationery and even though I’m biased, we had the coolest invitations ever! I even bought most of the gifts for my ladies from Trend in Carytown. When it came to the actual wedding weekend, everything was flawless! It poured rain during our outdoor rehearsal and the team at KMD was quick and efficient with making sure we felt confident for the next day. The wedding day was everything I could have ever dreamed of. We had the team at KMD come deliver my flowers and help set up. They were all wonderful. If anything went wrong during that day, my husband and I have no clue about it & that’s what they are there for. They set up all of our decorations & flowers (which they did perfectly) so we could enjoy the day. They were there for literally anything we needed. Not only were they there for my husband & I, they were there for our wedding party & family as well. My Mom would not stop talking about how well taken care of she felt by them. The entire day, they stuck to our timeline and our whole day felt perfect and flawless. At the end of the night, they were there to pack everything up so we yet again, had nothing to worry about. Seriously, when I say Kim Moody Design made our wedding perfect, they really did. We are so forever grateful for everyone at Kim Moody Design for giving us the wedding of our dreams. If you are looking for someone to deliver a wedding beyond your expectations, I highly recommend Kim Moody Design.
Grateful for KMD
Working with KMD was so FUN, collaborative, and they really "get it" when you describe your vibe and vision. They're so easy to talk to and took all of the confusion out of the planning process. I am very type-A, armed with my to-do lists, excel sheets, and binders. I was convinced that I didn't need a planner, and should spend the money elsewhere for the wedding. But at the end of the day, it comes down to this: on the day of, you don't want your BMs, moms, friends, or yourself to have to run around prepping flowers, lining people up, timing everything, coordinating with vendors, organizing paperwork, taking care of payments and tips, etc. The list literally goes on forever. On the wedding day, the team at KMD, got there early and set up everything like it was out of a magazine. They brought all of my ideas to life and ran around making sure every detail was in place while I got ready with my girls and enjoyed the moment. If there is one "splurge" that I would recommend to anyone over nicer flowers, a more expensive dress, or anything else, it is to first get a planner - ideally with KMD. They made everything so painless and I am SO grateful to have had the KMD team by my side for our wedding!
Couldn't have done it without KMD!
We are so happy that we chose Kim Moody Design (KMD). We immediately connected with the team when we met and we are so happy that they were a part of our wedding. We opted for the Partial Planning and Day of Management, and it was one of the best decision we made for our wedding. We had a clear wedding vision, but you just don't realize all the work needed to put the final bow on things! It gave us great peace of mind to have our decisions validated by a professional, get some wonderful ideas that tied to our vision, and have someone review our vendor contracts! We would recommend the Day Of Management to any couple! It really takes the pressure and stress off and allow you to enjoy the day. Everything went seamlessly - as far as we know :D - and we were able to enjoy our special day without worry about cues, set up, or any coordinations, especially since we had two venues! We had already completed a contract for flower or we would have considered KMD. We did use a few things from the KMD rental inventory - a mail box on our gift table for cards (a KMD idea!), tea lights and votives, and a large mirror. We used the mirror for our welcome signs with KMD calligraphy! Our wedding was exactly the way we imagined and we couldn't have pulled it off without the KMD team!
Personable Wedding Planner
In the words of someone close to our wedding and experienced with Kim’s work, “I’m not sure how anyone can plan a wedding without Kim.” We couldn’t agree more. Kim was so great to work with. She made our wedding day and the days leading up to it carefree and enjoyable. We didn’t worry about vendors, seating arrangements, or the small details on our wedding day because we knew Kim had everything under control. She made sure that our wedding day was everything we dreamt it would be.
In the days leading up to the wedding, Kim was the one who reached out to our venue and vendors to ensure that all was taken care of. When my wife had questions or just needed to talk things through during the many months and late nights of planning, Kim was there for her as a friendly sounding board. When our pastor had an obligation she had to attend the night before our wedding, Kim stepped in to ensure that we all knew what to do the day of. Needless to say, Kim and her team went well above the call of duty.
Kim was also our florist for the wedding. We could not have been happier with the outcome of our arrangements. I was a bit skeptical at first when I heard Peacock feathers but the final outcome blew me away. I was amazed at how beautiful everything looked and what made me even happier was seeing my wife so excited with the outcome. Kim and her put their heads together and developed arrangements and decorations that received numerous compliments.
Did I mention that much of these meetings and brainstorming sessions occurred over the phone? My wife and I were planning our wedding from afar (10 hours to be exact) and Kim was so helpful in making sure that everything was looked after. She knew the people we were wanting to work with and gave us great feedback on how to make everything go smoothly. She was our eyes and ears in Virginia. Kim’s service to us on that day was invaluable. What sets her apart in my opinion though is the personal attention that she gave to my wife and I. Whether it was getting us water while we were outside for our photo shoot or getting my mother a chair while she waited to be photographed, we truly felt like the center of attention. I would agree with the quote at the beginning that I don’t know how anyone can plan a wedding without Kim.
Amazing planner, designer, and florist!
Kim was AMAZING! We could never had done this without her help, and that is exactly what we were looking for in a wedding planner. Kim went above and beyond with all the details she pulled out, from finding us vendors to being our go between for every aspect of the wedding day. Her background in design (especially interior and floral) was well utilized in all aspects of the celebration as well, helping the visual elements POP all around. For anyone who is looking for an amazing wedding planner who will make this a breeze, contact Kim. You will DEFINITELY not be disappointed!
I could not have been more satisfied with my floral arrangements and just the overall experience that I had with Kim. Fantastic!! She is a hard worker and sees to it that everything is perfect! Kim Moody Design made our wedding day absolutely beautiful!!
My wedding was absolute magic with Kim Moody Design
My fiance and I were engaged for a while before we finally came to the conclusion that we needed help in a major way planning our wedding. Enter Honeylyn Armstrong from Kim Moody Design. I can't say enough good things about her - she took our raw ideas and turned them into the wedding of our dreams. Everything was absolutely perfect down to the very last detail. Everyone at our wedding has told us how smooth everything was, and my friends who are planning weddings themselves have asked what we did differently - the answer is having a rock star wedding planner! My mom and I have talked about it several times since, but on the day of my wedding, we had absolutely no worries, because we knew that Kim and her team were going to make sure that everything got done, and we just knew it was going to be perfect. For all you brides/grooms to be, I can't even begin to tell you what an incredible gift it is to be able to actually relax and enjoy your wedding day! You're able to get ready with your friends and family and actually focus on yourself and be present for all those special moments. You're not worried about things being done correctly and on time when you have a team of professionals whose sole focus is making sure your vision and dreams come true. And not only that, but when my new husband and I left that night, I wasn't worried about our parents having to stay until all hours of the night packing up because that was taken care of too. Our wedding day felt like absolute magic, for us and for our families, and I know so much of that was because of Kim and her team's amazing work and their loving hearts! Everyone deserves to have the wedding day they've always dreamed of, and you can too if you give Kim Moody Design a call!
Great Florals and Planning Services
Working with Kim and her team was a great experience, they made my wedding day awesome and stress-free! The flowers were gorgeous, from the bouquet to the trellis at the ceremony site! I would recommend with no reservations!
Professional, organized, and so personable!
Hiring Kim Moody and her team was the best decision I made when wedding planning. From the beginning everything was so organized and all of the team members working with me kept in touch on a weekly basis. They have great relationships with some amazing vendors, and I have nothing but good things to say about each and every vendor they recommended. Kim and her team were so friendly and easy going throughout my 2 year planning process and were so easy to get in contact with whenever I needed them! The day of the wedding went SO smoothly for me and I couldn't have asked for a more organized, easy, and amazing wedding day thanks to these wonderful ladies! My guests also had such great compliments to give this whole team as well and mentioned how organized, nice, and on top of everything they were. Kim Moody Design truly made my dream wedding come true AND made beautiful flower arrangements for me as well!! I highly recommend Kim Moody and her team for all wedding planning needs, they are truly the best!
Hands down best wedding planner/miracle worker!
Kim and her team of talented professionals are everything you could hope for when planning and enjoying your wedding. During the wedding rehearsal Kim emphasized that if anyone had issues (such as forgetting dress socks) the day of the wedding to contact her rather than distracting the bride or groom or their big day. We experienced an unexpected issue the morning of the wedding where three of the groomsmen arrived in a different color suit due to an error with the group number at the suit store (large, well known, national company). I assumed there would be no fix for this problem, but called Kim to let her know as pictures before the wedding were scheduled in 45 minutes. Kim immediately got to work and contacted the wedding suit vendor and arranged for them to find the suits, found a tailor to have them fitted, and had them delivered to us on site within the hour. AMAZING! We highly recommend Kim if you want to know everything will be taken care and have a perfect wedding.
Kim Moody Rocks!
We love and adore the team at Kim Moody Design! They made all of our floral dreams come true and were so easy to work with. Not knowing too much about florals, they were able to help me pull inspiration and decide on what exactly I wanted in arrangements and in florals. She was really instrumental in helping me with my budget, considering I wanted to do some pretty elaborate details. Their professionalism throughout the whole process was very high and they truly care about their clients. From being on both the floral side and the planning side, they have so much knowledge to be able to help you through logistics. Since I was getting married in January, I wanted to feel like the inside was full of luscious greenery and florals where it felt like the outside came in. On the day of my wedding, Kim was perfectionist, making sure every detail and moving part was to my liking. I cannot day enough about them and how wonderful they are to work with. I am so grateful!!!! We love you Kim!
The Kim Moody Design team was so helpful through our wedding process. She is truly an expert at planning. We were provided with different sheets to keep us on track including a stationary guide, wedding party lineup, budget sheet, and vendor contacts. The working spreadsheet was my favorite! We worked together to fill all the important details in as the months went by. She was quick to respond to emails and took extra time to have quick phone calls when I started to get nervous about some fine details. It was a load off to know that we had such a dedicated professional to coordinate with the vendors. They were amazing on the day of the wedding. There was nothing for me to worry about! They had all the bases covered. She was readily available to help me maneuver in my dress, and made sure I had everything I needed. She was amazing keeping us all on track from the entrance to the send-off! I didn't have to worry about anything after the send-off either. They made sure all the gifts, flowers, cake, and anything extra we used throughout the night was packed up and personally placed in the designated car to take home. I couldn't have had a better team to help my day to run so smoothly and stress-free!
KMD handled the florals for my wedding on Saturday. KMD was in constant communication with me. She had me send her Pinterest photos that I liked and colors I wanted to make sure she designed what I really wanted. The results were fantastic! I couldn’t be happier that I chose them to handle the flowers for my wedding party. The flowers were gorgeous and smelled amazing. I definitely recommend using Kim Moody Design for your flowers.
Amazing, organized, and the nicest team!
Hiring Kim Moody and her team was the best decision I made when wedding planning. From the beginning, everything was so organized and all of the team members working with me kept in touch on a weekly basis. They have great relationships with some amazing vendors, and I have nothing but good things to say about each and every vendor they recommended. Erin, Kim, Honey, and Ariel all were so friendly and easy going throughout my 2-year planning process and were so easy to get in contact with whenever I needed them! The day of the wedding went SO smoothly for me and I couldn't have asked for a more organized, easy, and amazing wedding day thanks to these wonderful ladies! My guests also had such great compliments to give this whole team as well and mentioned how organized, nice, and on top of everything they were. Kim Moody Design truly made my dream wedding come true AND made beautiful flower arrangements for me as well!! I highly recommend Kim Moody and her team for all wedding planning needs, they are truly the best!
The wedding of my daughter's dreams!
We were so pleased and enjoyed every minute of our daughter's wedding. The flowers were gorgeous and her bouquet was perfect! Kim was like a magician getting 2 groomsmen suits replaced when they came in the wrong color. She had everything fixed within the hour! Thank you again for a wedding we will always remember!!!
Checked every box and more!
Kim and her assistants checked every single box for my daughter's wedding on April 27, 2019. The event was held at The Weyanoke in Farmville and was the first large event that they have held on the roof at The Catbird. Kim's own vision was based upon my daughter's vision of a beautiful wedding. Kim took care of every single thing that we thought of and more importantly, the hundreds of things that we didn't think of. The flowers that Kim designed and created were AMAZING. Everyone has raved about the entire wedding with the flowers being at the forefront of questions and comments. Kim Moody Design arranged every facet of this wedding, was instrumental in helping us to select our DJ (who everyone loved) from Black Tie Entertainment, our caterer which ended up being the chef and staff at The Weyanoke who were so good that they created all of our special requests and our cake/desserts, our phenomenal makeup/hair folks from Lou Stevens Glam Squad, the most amazing photographer, Sean DeWitt Photography, and our videographer White Tree Weddings. Kim Moody worked for months developing a great relationship with the wonderful group at The Weyanoke. Together, they more than took care of every single whim that anyone in the entire wedding had. We had to ask for NOTHING. It was all done before we could think of it. Kim and her team are the BEST!
Happy wife, happy life!
They made the entire wedding process go very smoothly and were a huge help on wedding day making sure everything went right.
Princess Sparkle's New Year's Eve Wedding
Honey and Erin were the planners for our New Year's Eve wedding. The Bride's nickname is Princess Sparkle and they created a perfect and beautiful space for her New Year's Eve Wedding. They recommended vendors, coordinated contracts, created beautiful floral decorations and bouquets and handled all the details professionally, prompted and with poise. It was a stress free and memorable event for all of us.
Honeylyn and their other florists worked with us for a customized order that was within our budget. The flowers turned out beautiful and exactly how we wanted!
Perfect Fall Bouquets
My floral arrangements from them were beautiful. I primarily worked with Honeylyn, who was very communicative. They're great at what they do and created the perfect fall bouquets for my wedding!
Truly Unique Experience
Honey and the KMD team helped us pull together a truly unique experience on our family farm. They have a great eye for design and know how to pull all the details together regardless of the number of outside vendors involved. Our wedding day was incredible and we attribute much of that to the KMD team.
The team was everywhere at once!
Hiring Kim Moody Design for our day-of-wedding planning was absolutely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The KMD team has many, many years of experience in the business and it shows - I would trust them and recommend them to any couple seeking the support of a wedding coordinator. They are so on top of it and the team went above and beyond on our wedding date. Not only does the team excel beautifully at the "big stuff" (dealing with vendor contracts, managing any crisis that comes up, etc.) the team brings such a personal and thoughtful touch to the organizing. I don't know how they did it, but the team was everywhere at once on our wedding day: communicating with the caterer, bartenders, officiant, and transportation, making sure my sweetie and I always had a refreshing drink in our hand and that we got to eat (a huge deal!), making sure the tiny details of the ceremony were executed perfectly, setting up decor, guest gifts, and more. KMD has so much experience, they catch and take care of details you might not even know to consider.
KMD did everything: they were efficient and professional, competent and seasoned. What really makes KMD special is that in addition to delivering on the services, KMD brings a sincere care, affection, joy, and care to their work. You feel loved for and cared for by the team, that they are personally vested in making your day perfect for you.
For me, hiring a wedding planner was a difficult decision. I wanted someone who would go to bat for me, be unquestionably capable, and also be caring and thoughtful. We got all of that with KMD.
Hire KMD. You absolutely will not regret it. I can't thank them enough for how they made our day: we were actually able to enjoy it and be present to it knowing that the wedding production was being taken care of in the most capable hands.
With my wife's mother living more than five hours away from the wedding, a wedding planner was a must-have, and Honey worked with us during almost all of our nearly two-year-long engagement to make our wedding a huge success. The day of the wedding was stress-free for everyone thanks to Honey, Mary Ruth, and Kim's diligence and attention to detail. Their attentiveness to my wife's personality led them to recommend the right vendors for every single step of the process, including finding a last-minute emergency hair and makeup stylist.
Created our dream wedding day!
We cannot emphasize how much we absolutely loved and appreciated the KMD team during our wedding planning journey! We were so lucky to have Honey Armstrong by our side from the beginning as we were looking for full planning services; planning a wedding can potentially be so stressful but under her guidance, it was a really fun and easy process. Honey is creative yet practical, responsive, patient, and overall, a joy to be around. She also has great professional relationships with other wedding vendors and we loved working with each of her vendor recommendations (catering, DJ, transportation, lighting, hair/makeup). KMD also does floral arrangements, which were beautiful! Many of our guests said it was one of the best wedding experiences they've had. Honey and the KMD team seriously created our dream wedding day and we are forever grateful to them!
It was the BEST decision
When my daughter came to us with her engagement news, we were so excited and immediately began thinking of wedding plans. When, where, who, how……oh boy, there were so many questions to be answered! After talking with Kim Moody at Kim Moody Design, we agreed that there were numerous variables that we had never even considered, and with all of us working fulltime, we needed help!!
It was the BEST decision we could have made. Kim is such a professional and experienced wedding planner, and she was able to keep us on track all along the way, giving us numerous options to consider for every facet of the wedding, while keeping an eye on our budget! If we were feeling overwhelmed, she could quickly sense that and put our fears to rest! Her planning skills allowed her to stay on schedule and laid out everything for us to see, on a monthly, daily, and even hourly (as on the day of the wedding) basis!
Her vast experience enabled her to make recommendations for Equipment Rentals, Photographers, Caterers, Bakers, Entertainment, and more. Once choices were made in all areas, Kim became the point of contact and handled all transactions and planning with ease and expertise.
When bad weather became a serious possibility, Kim was on top of making plans to provide for alternate solutions.
Kim Moody and her staff provide an outstanding service, and we HIGHLY recommend her! We were able to enjoy the wedding without worrying about the multitude of logistics that need constant attention!
Thank you, Kim, Lindsey, Honey, and Erin!!
Best Decision Ever!
In the beginning, I thought I could plan my wedding myself (with my mom and MIL). I bought books, notebooks, did research, etc. The more planning I did, the more overwhelmed I felt. I started looking for wedding planners. I had a few meetings with different ones. After meeting Honey from KMD, I was sold. She made everything flawless. She kept me on track, allowed me and others to bounce ideas off her, and so much more! My wedding day was stress free and fun. I had zero worries. Other than marrying my husband, choosing KMD was the best decision I made during the wedding process!
Nothing but good things!
Being in the wedding industry I have had the opportunity to work with KMD on many many occasions and I can't praise them enough. From the great communication and attention to details to the design of the weddings themselves these girls got planning down to a science! You won't regret choosing KMD as your planner, florist, rental company, coordinator, or design team, they do it all and excel at it!
Honeylyn of KMD is a Unicorn...
One of the best decisions I have ever made in life was to work with Honeylyn Armstrong of Kim Moody Design. I had a slight idea of what my expectations were about the process of working with a planner. I prepared for both the pros and the cons, and including having to work over long distance (we live in New York City.) And I can’t emphasize enough how much Honeylyn surpassed my positive expectations and gave me complete reassurance. Honey is extremely professional, and accurately recognizes what poses urgency and what doesn’t (seriously, trustworthy and a voice of reason). Additionally, she utilized several digital tools to make communicating easy and consistent (email, spreadsheets, docs, vendor contracts, seating/rsvp) . I always felt like we shared information fast and always remained on the same page. Honey was attentive to our personalities and responsive to the personal insight we shared and made it a priority to listen. Furthermore, she was flexible to everything we asked. She is a fantastic budget keeper. When I often asked, “what do you think,” she gave me an honest and fast answer, not motivated by price, convenience or taste, but by what she believed would matter to me and my husband in the end. I have a notorious bad habit of being late, and she kept me on time (!) and even without making me feel restricted or stressed. In regard to design details, she almost at times knew how to articulate ideas and visions I couldn’t. I didn’t cry when I said, “I do.” I did cry as soon as I saw the completed reception design for the first time! So, I emphasize my endorsement in every way. Honeylyn is not only, as a person extremely qualified and efficient as a planner, but she is also wholesomely genuine and caring as a human. It was a pleasure. While the price tag could be a stretch, I encourage future brides considering KMD as a full-planning service to believe it IS worthwhile to spend the money and to contact the KMD team. You won't regret it. Lots of love, unconditional appreciation and gratitude for Honey and KMD.
It was worth every penny!
The entire team at Kim Moody made sure our wedding ran smoothly! Our main coordinator was Honeylyn Armstrong and she was amazing. Although I booked the vendors and decided details running up to the day of the wedding, about 1 month and then really 1 week out, Honey stepped in to make sure everything was happening how it should and that details were finalized. I want to note they were there to answer questions - even months in advance - there was just one time they weren't as responsive as I'd like with sending details - but it all worked out great in the end. I would not have felt so calm the day of the wedding without having her there making sure everything was set up, there was coordination with vendors, and that we were following the timeline she created (with input, which was super awesome to know everything was planned and details were known ahead of time). I was the last wedding in the family and it was great to have someone there making sure things ran smoothly so that my mom could enjoy the day fully. They also did our flowers, and they were fantastic. I was sent a picture of the bouquet and asked if I liked it or if I wanted any changes. Right before it started, there were two little buds dying and Honey snipped them off so that pictures would be perfect - the details she thought of! Another example of how much I love this company: we had bought a polaroid camera, but guests weren't taking two photos so we could keep one - Honey spent time going around and taking photos of guests to make sure we had those too! One last example: I couldn't really eat in my dress when I was sitting. I asked Honey if I could have a plate when we did the sunset photos. She said of course, and even deshelled the seafood so that I could eat it easily. It just showed the company really went all out to make sure it was a perfect and enjoyable day. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants to be able to enjoy the day of their wedding fully. It was worth every penny!
I'd definitely recommend Kim Moody to future brides and grooms.
We worked with Kim Moody for our wedding at Keswick Hall near Charlottesville, Virginia. Kim was exceptional to work with throughout the entire process. She was intuitive and understood what we wanted with little explanation. She was patient, instilled confidence and was highly communicative. On our wedding day, we were blown away by the arrangements Kim and her team put together. Despite having given birth only a few weeks earlier, she was there on our wedding day making sure every little detail was perfect...and it was. I'd definitely recommend Kim Moody to future brides and grooms.
I had no worries on my wedding morning
Kim Moody Design was an amazing team to work with for my wedding! We used Honey and her team for planning and for the florals. I could not have imagined my wedding day without them. Honey had every minute of the wedding and reception planned out and on schedule. Just knowing Honey was there, I had no worries on my wedding morning. The florals that Kim Moody Design put together were breathtaking! Everything I could have asked for, they provided. I will always remember how the day looked, but also how I felt because of everything Honey and her team worked so hard to provide. I would absolutely recommend Kim Moody Design for wedding planning and for the beautiful florals.
...our wedding came together perfectly...
Kim Moody Design was the best to work with. I live in Utah, my mom is in Georgia, and we were getting married in Virginia. I was so stressed coordinating all the vendors when I started the wedding planning myself. After phone conferencing with my mom and Honey Armstrong (our planner) for the first time, my mom realized how imperative it would be to have her help us through the wedding planning process. Honey was great stepping into the work I had started, and immediately took a huge load off my shoulders. We spent hours on the phone with her. She took the vision of my wedding and added unique design twists to make it even better than we could have imagined. She worked with so many difference vendors behind the scenes to ensure our day went perfectly. She and Lindsey (her assistant for the day of) worked super hard to make the ceremony and reception spaces perfect for our guests. Honey made sure my ideas as the bride, came first. We also did our florals through Kim Moody, and everyone raved about how beautiful our flower were. There was a little bit of time where the company went through some staffing changes and were spread a bit thin and they weren't quite as responsive as I was used to. But in the end, our wedding came together perfectly and we know we could not have done it without Honey and KMD!
I would highly recommend them to anyone getting married near Richmond.
There is not a single thing I would have changed about our wedding day or the experience that Kim Moody Design provided leading up to it. Their team did a fantastic job with our day-of management, florals, and rentals. Honeylyn was our Lead Coordinator and Lindsey was her Assistant Coordinator. They also took our floral inspiration and put together arrangements that were unique and fit our vision. Both Honey and Lindsey went above and beyond to make sure that everything went on without a hitch and that no one in our wedding party or families had anything to stress about. They were thorough, professional, and put us at ease as they accommodated a few last minute curve balls with grace. Our guests are still raving about what a beautiful, fun, thoughtful wedding we had and the KMD team has so much to do with that. I would highly recommend them to anyone getting married near Richmond.
...perfect, priceless and absolutely amazing...
We cannot say enough wonderful things about the team at Kim Moody. Our day was perfect, priceless and absolutely amazing...down to every little detail. Honey made planning and picking details FUN and found a way to always keep me on track. Our memories of the day are how great everything turned out...thanks to Honey and team.
The day of our wedding was the most peaceful day!
Everyone at Kim Moody is extremely nice and professional! They made the whole planning process a lot easier! The day of our wedding was the most peaceful day! They were very organized, had all the vendors organized and informed of everything going on. Would highly recommend this company!
Worth their weight in gold
We just had my daughters wedding this weekend, and being from out of town, I don't know what we would have done with out Honey and Kim Moody Design! They knew the best places to get everything and Honey was amazing - she totally ran the show... even when we ran out of beer and food and I thought my husband was going too lose his mind ... she kept her cool....and his ...and made everything better. I would totally recommend them 100%... so glad that we chose to go with them! Worth their weight in gold ....
Disappointment all around.
I cannot convey the sincere disappointment & anger I have gone through knowing I did everything in my power to ensure my wedding day was a success & my hired coordinator ruined much of my day's experience. Our event was a while ago now, but it is still with me. I hope someone else can learn from my experience.
I had a conversation before contracting with KMD explaining in great detail the needs for our wedding, money being no object. The initial contact with Honey was great, very detailed & I felt comfortable with her recommendation to a Month-Of coordinator based on our needs. We spoke on the phone with the coordinator beforehand & I was admittedly not over the moon but knew we just needed someone to follow directions. It just went downhill from there. We had to speak to her several times about being responsive. Her response: it was busy season & she had a lot of other clients. She showed attitude towards several of our vendors and on the day of, it was disastrous. My family, who flew over 6,000 miles, had to step-in because our coordinator was nowhere to be found. She didn't even talk to me, the Bride, until I arrived to walk down the aisle at my scheduled time. She caused a fire on the head table & ruined our Italian velvet runners, after specifically instructing her not to light the candles due to winds. She didn't have over $6k worth of flowers moved to the reception space. The list goes on. My guests, vendors & family left complaining about everything that involved her.
We were in touch with Kim for a month after our honeymoon. Kim confessed her firm's fault & yet, she offered us no solutions. In the end, when we said we would charge-back half our contract, she finally offered a credit for 5% of our contract. We would've pursued this further if we lived closer as this was very poorly handled.
No bride wants to remember the bad from such a beautiful moment, so I am sure many others have just walked away. Now, so can I.
Kim Moody Design was absolutely amazing. Honey and Lindsey with KMD couldn't have made our day any less stressful and more perfect than it was. The KMD team brought our vision to fruition, while providing constant support, creativity and professionalism. We wouldn't have had the perfect day without Honey!!
Kim Moody Design is incredible! They literally made my special day stress free and so special! They were attentive, responsive, professional and so creative! I could not have asked for a better experience or team!! Honey is the absolute best!
