Working with Krissy and the Always Allegra team was easily the best decision we made throughout our wedding planning process. It is hard to overstate how great she and her team were from start to finish. Krissy is a truly special person with incredible vision, superhuman work ethic, and a clear passion for what she does. Her organization and planning skills are second to none-not a single detail slips by Krissy and it’s amazing how quickly she makes things happen. She’s a great listener, ultra efficient, and her ability to execute is truly unparalleled. She is also incredibly thoughtful, approachable, and FUN to be around-we felt so comfortable with Krissy from Day 1 and instantly knew that we had made the right choice. She made us feel like we were the only people on her entire agenda and we felt beyond taken care of throughout the entire process.

Krissy and her team went the extra mile each and every time, accepting nothing less than a perfect outcome. From big picture logistics to the smallest of details, the AAE team nailed every moment and we could not have been happier with the end result. Krissy poured her heart and soul into our wedding, advocated for us every step of the way, and really made us feel like family.

Krissy and the AAE team are the best in the business and we cannot imagine having gone through this process with anyone else. Thank you so much for making our big day unforgettable!!

It truly doesn't get better than Krissy and the Always Allegra team! From the moment we started wedding planning Krissy was a dream. Not only does she reply to emails in a matter of minutes but she guides you through the process so seamlessly and ensures nothing gets missed or skipped over. After my wedding everyone just kept commenting on all the little personal details that really set it apart. Every single one of those details were thanks to Krissy. Not only does she give amazing ideas and inspiration, but she also has relationships with countless incredible vendors to help make them a reality. Krissy makes every part of the wedding planning process easy, fun, and simple. She never pushes you to do things that are out of your comfort zone and helps you to achieve what you want within your budget. On the day of, my mom and I were really able to enjoy every moment without worrying about the details because Krissy and her team took care of everything behind the scenes. My mom swears working with Always Allegra is the best money you can spend when planning a wedding because it allows you to enjoy everything you've worked so hard for. Krissy truly makes you feel like you are the only wedding she is working on because of how responsive and involved she is. She's not only an incredible wedding planner but became our friend through the process. If you have the chance to work with Krissy you certainly won't regret it!! It was the decision we made when planning my wedding!!

Where can I start to sing the praises of our fearless coordinator Krissy? My family and I were so lucky to have Krissy on board. She not only made every detail sparkle, but she made the day of the wedding incredibly fun and joyful. All of our vendors respected her and loved working with her. In the planning process, she was very respectful of our budget and helped us decipher what was and was not worth spending money on. She is particularly savvy in planning a wedding at Bel Air Bay Club where she used to work because she has close relationships with the event planning staff there.
Most notably, Krissy is outstanding under pressure and thrives off of the energy of a wedding. She shielded us from any chaos that ensued behind the scenes. When my new husband stepped on and ripped my bustle, Krissy was right there to pin a new makeshift bustle for me and keep the celebrations moving. When one guest got injured late in the reception, she attended to it quickly and quietly without letting us get stressed out about our friend’s injury. After a stressful last few weeks leading up to our wedding during a high-risk covid period, Krissy took the wheel on the wedding day and my mom as MOB got to completely relax and enjoy the day fully. My husband, my parents and I have expressed countless times how we could not imagine the day of the wedding without Krissy. I would highly recommend her to any close friend or family member.

outstanding under pressure & thrives off the wedding day energy

Wedding planning can be stressful, but hiring Krissy and Always Allegra was the best decision we made! She was the first person I called when I started looking for vendors and thank god I did! We picked all of our vendors from her preferred list and I’m so glad we did. She helped up with every step, letting us know if we were getting the best deal and how to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. I felt at ease knowing we were working with people Krissy had previously worked with so we knew we would be taken care of. The day of was PERFECT, everything went so smooth. She even made sure we had champagne and a snack during our photos while everyone else was at cocktail hour! It’s the little details that make the biggest difference and Krissy ensures that you can truly focus on each other - cannot recommend Always Allegra enough!!

You can truly focus on each other...

Hiring Always Allegra Events for our wedding planning was hands down the best decision we made! Krissy is a true gem and she and her whole team were amazing to work with. I honestly didn’t know how much I needed the AAE team until we started working together. Krissy is so organized and on top of every detail to make sure nothing is left out or forgotten during the process. The vendors she recommended were all amazing to work with as well which made our wedding events truly come together seamlessly. Krissy was able to understand the vibe we wanted with the wedding events and guide us in the right direction even when I don’t think we knew what we wanted completely. She has an amazing ability to understand who she is working with and make their events uniquely them. She did both our welcome party and wedding and both nights were pure perfection. We quickly realized that Krissy knew what she was doing and the best option was to fully put our trust in her which resulted in the most beautiful events I could imagine and the best little personal touches. The nights were perfectly planned to not waste a minute of time. I know I’m biased as it was our wedding but we’ve never been to a more fun and beautiful event! We honestly can’t imagine anyone besides Krissy running the best week of our lives! She’s a rockstar and the real MVP!

the real MVP...

There are not enough thanks I can give Krissy for making our wedding day and wedding planning experience incredible! I had been following her on instagram for awhile and when I was finally engaged, she was the first person I reached out to and booked (over a year and half out)! Even though I booked her so far in advance she worked with me on a continuous basis checking-in, doing a wedding wellness check as I call them (aka - how can I help) and sending me over countless recommendations and ideas to make our dream day become reality! She recommended a live saxophonist and WOW did not only impress my guests but also make the reception at my wedding UNREAL!

As a type A bride it was hard to give the reigns over to anyone but there was not a hesitation in working with Krissy. I am think I am extremely organized but it truly doesn't compare to Krissy!

Her attention to detail is phenomenal, which helped when I had so many small details I wanted included in our wedding. I was nervous they wouldn't work, even calling Krissy to vent my frustration that this may not look as good in person as it does in my head but HOLY MOLY when I came back after my golden hour photos to see the ceremony space for the first time, my jaw was on the floor. She not only took my ideas and details but she made everything look even better than I imagined. Her ability to execute is unlike anyone else I worked with in the wedding planning process!

I jokingly tell our family that I felt like a guest on our wedding day because that is how seamless the day went. Krissy was able to help this type A bride truly enjoy her day and have the memories of a lifetime.fI cannot recommend Krissy enough and truly am her #1 fan recommending her to any bride I meet! Thank you Krissy, you are truly wonderful, I am so thankful I worked with you throughout our wedding plan process!

felt like a guest at my own wedding...

I could not have imagined planning our wedding without Krissy. She was so fun to work with and really made our vision come to life. I remember showing up at the venue the day of and I couldn't believe it was my wedding because everything looked SO GOOD! She was super responsive anytime we needed her and coordinated so well with our other vendors. She was also there for the rehearsal and the WHOLE wedding day, plus some. The night was over and she volunteered to take all the stuff back to our hotel room by herself so my husband and I could enjoy the rest of our night. She really went above and beyond. I would HIGHLY recommend her services. After the wedding I received so many compliments on how smooth and classy the event was and it was all because of Krissy.

AAE went above & beyond

Elush & Carmen

Incredible, amazing, and highly recommended! Krissy was a guardian angel that helped us plan our wedding in just 3 months time during 2 different strains of Covid (and not a single guest got sick :)). We hired Krissy as a wedding planner and could not be happier with our decision. She has a great personality and is always happy (which is really helpful when wedding planning), organized, and a great source of positive energy.

Krissy was very receptive to our ideas and our thoughts. Nobody planning a wedding knows exactly what they want but she was great not telling us what to do, but guiding us to discover what would make us most happy. She always took down notes and remembered our many random requests :). We even asked to update the types of drapes we wanted 3 days out and she was able to coordinate the updates with the vendor (who was really difficult to reach) and get us exactly what we wanted! She was always available via text, video call and phone call.

We did not do a single thing besides get ready for the day. Krissy handled everything and never contacted us for last second questions / requests. When we came to the venue, we were amazed how everything came together so beautifully. The flowers were perfect. The sofreh (persian ceremony table) was perfect. The tables, chairs, floor plan, etc were all perfect. The photographers / videographer were perfect. Saying perfect is not an exaggeration either. We've heard horror stories where the wedding planner clashes with the guests for some reason and this did not happen. Both our parents and families were raving about what a great job she did. While everyone was enjoying the wedding, she was on top of everything! She made sure that as the couple we were eating enough food (she put horns d'oeuvres on our table) and even went back to the hotel (15 min drive away) to pick up some stuff the bride left behind.
With the "wedding high" over, we can still say our wedding was perfect. Although Covid made things tough, we would not change a single thing and none of that would have been possible without Krissy. Highly recommend to go for the full wedding planning services if you can. You will not regret it.

Incredible. Amazing. Highly Recommend...
