Favorite part of wedding day
My favorite part of wedding day is when the bride puts her dress on, what a special moment to witness, and seeing the bridal party’s reaction during their first look!

Wedding day tip
I love when the bride and groom take a short break to have either a private drink or appetizer with just the two of them. Your wedding day is a celebration of the love you have for one another and spending quality time, even if it’s just 10-15 minutes, without any distractions.

Wedding Experience
I have been working in the wedding industry since 2019, and I am happy to report this was my dream job turned into reality. I got married in 2018 and loved planning my own wedding which is when I realized being a wedding coordinator is what I was meant to do. I joined Veil Events in 2020 and am blessed to be a part of this amazing team.

Hire Veil Events because…
Hiring a day-of-coordinator is not just an investment for you and your spouse but also your family and friends. Our goal is for the bride, groom and your guests to have a stress-free day. We manage your vendors and all the behind the scene details to make sure your wedding day dreams come true!

Love for the industry
The most magical part about being a wedding coordinator is, not only loving what I do but also witnessing the love and support surrounding the couple. It is truly a magical day to help execute.

Kendra Trump's Reviews

Veil Events was the best vendor decision I made during wedding planning. My coordinator Kendra Trump truly went above and beyond the month prior to make sure I had the most stress free day possible. I did not feel stressed at all the days prior to the wedding because I knew she was speaking with and organizing my other vendors. She was so calm, organized, and kind and made the day run so smoothly! I received so many compliments about her from family and friends. Everyone needs a Kendra on their wedding day! Her team of Barbie and Kezia were also amazing at helping the day go so smoothly and setting things up more beautifully than I could have ever imagined. I can’t say enough amazing things about the team at Veil Events!

We had THE best day possible for our wedding, and no doubt Kendra and her Veil Events team were part of the magic! Both of our families and bridal party made a point to tell us how great Kendra was and how everyone on her team was ready to help with anything and everything! They are intuitive, loyal, listen to our ideas, and made the day so smooth. Can’t recommend Veil Events and Kendra more- A wedding planning must! We are so sad to close this chapter, the wedding blues are present! XO, Abigail & Collin

We hired Veil Events for month of wedding coordination and were paired with Kendra. She kept us on track with our to-do list and thought of all the extra details to make my vision come to life. Kendra did an amazing job and kept the event running smoothly, not to mention she was prepared for EVERYTHING!!

We had the most amazing experience with Veil Events and with our coordinator, Kendra! When we got engaged, the first piece of advice we got was to get a coordinator and we were recommended Veil Events. Thank goodness we followed that advice! We were assigned Kendra as our coordinator and from the beginning, she put us at ease and guided us through all the chaos of planning. She was organized and knowledgeable in all areas of planning and gave great advice on decision making. Through all of our meetings, Kendra was always so kind and patient with us as we worked out kinks and ping ponged back and forth with different ideas. For our rehearsal and wedding day, Kendra took care of everything! My wife and I are both a little type A and when we would try to do things, Kendra would tell us not to worry at all and let her do it all, and we felt confident we could! Kendra made our wedding day the best day ever and kept everything so smooth and easy for us! We love her and are so thankful for all her help!! We could not recommend Veil Events enough!

I purchased the wedding management package and could not recommend it more! Kendra was our coordinator and we could not imagine planning without her! From attending vendor meetings and asking all the questions I didn’t know to ask, to providing guidance when we made decisions (big or small), she did it all. I felt so good going into wedding weekend (totally stress free) and then she just absolutely knocked it out of the park on wedding day. Making sure everyone was where they should be, making sure everything looked like what was planned, checking in and making sure I had everything I needed – I felt so well taken care of and was able to just be present and enjoy the best day of my life. Veil events also did our place cards for rehearsal dinner & our wedding day which was so easy and convenient! I cannot say enough amazing things about them. They are absolutely who you want in your corner when planning a wedding. And if you get Kendra, consider yourself very very lucky!!! Best wedding purchase hands down.

She communicated so clearly and made sure to set deadlines for us

Kendra at Veil events was amazing. We were in desperate need of a wedding planner as we were planning our wedding from Wisconsin. Not only did Kendra go above and beyond for us, she made the hassle of wedding planning from another state a breeze. I can’t recommend her enough. Elliot and I enjoyed every moment of our wedding day and even the months leading up to it. I honestly never felt stressed or discouraged. She communicated so clearly and made sure to set deadlines for us so we were never feeling rushed or overwhelmed. Kendra we just want to say, thank you again for making this wedding so special.

We love recommending great planners for our clients!

We had a wonderful experience working alongside Kendra Trump for a fall wedding at our venue. She was so organized, kind and her team executed the day wonderfully. We love recommending great planners for our clients and Veil Events is definitely one we recommend for all potential and future venue clients at The Vineyard at J. Creek!

Kendra was the kindest and most patient person EVER!

We could NEVER have done our wedding without Kendra. During the entire process of planning, she was the kindest and most patient person EVER. She listened to all our needs and gave us great suggestions, and delivered everything we wanted.

It was an exceptional experience right from the very beginning!

I am beyond happy that my husband and I decided to hire Veil Events as our Coordinators for our wedding this summer.  It was an exceptional experience right from the very beginning.  They provided an amazing wedding planning system which included a physical copy of a wedding planner as well as an extensive spreadsheet that made keeping track of everything that needed to be taken care of before the wedding a breeze.  Paige, the Coordinator we worked with directly, was super knowledgeable, clearly had worked with most of my vendors before, and had lots of amazing advice right from our first meeting.  She met with me several times the month before our wedding, including meeting me for a very helpful walkthrough of our wedding venue as the day approached.  I felt at all times that she knew exactly how things should go and that helped me feel so relaxed, calm, and confident leading up to wedding day.  On our actual wedding day, Paige and her assistant Kendra did an amazing job of making sure everything was set up exactly as we discussed and looked beautiful, that things ran smoothly and were on time, and that any issues that cropped up were dealt with easily and efficiently.    I don’t think our wedding could have gone any more smoothly or have been any more beautiful than it was and Paige and Kendra were a huge part of the reason why.  Thank you Paige, Kendra, and Veil Events!

As I reminisce on our wedding 4 months ago, you can’t help but think about all the amazing vendors and people that made it just the perfect day, and Kendra at Veil Events is at the top of that list. Kendra was there every single step of the way as our day of coordinator. Every meeting we had Kendra was so personable and wanted our day to be perfect! She had our day planned out to every last detail (which for a type A like me was amazing!) She was there on wedding day to help keep us organized, help get stains out of dresses, fix hair, you name it she did it! I cannot recommend Veil Events enough! If you are like me- you read every review to see who is the best- Veil Events 100% is it!!

Professional, Kind, Resourceful!

I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Veil Events! I debated whether or not to pull the trigger for a day of coordinator but I would do it again 100 times! Kendra was an absolute dream from day one!! She was professional, kind, resourceful, and always kept us and our needs and wants for this day first. Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of and a huge part of that was due to Kendra and her team! I am forever grateful and will recommend Veil Events to anyone who I know is getting married!!

Not only were they professional and so good at their job, they truly cared!

Kendra was EVERYTHING I didn’t know I needed. I was hesitant to hire a coordinator because I had most things already planned and organized, but boy was I wrong regarding all the little details I didn’t even consider. Kendra (and Ellery) are worth their weight in gold and every cent I paid was well worth their service. Not only were they professional and so good at their job, they truly cared; I felt Kendra’s love and joy more than I could’ve imagined on my wedding day. Because of her our day was flawless and the absolute best day that we never wanted to end! HIRE VEIL EVENTS AND REQUEST KENDRA!

I cannot say enough good things about Kendra and Dani!

“Veil Events and Kendra were amazing. She provided guidance throughout planning and was a huge help in the weeks leading up to ensure we had every detail covered.

Lindsay and her team are worth their weight in gold!
Katie Thill & Alexander Tarvardian

“Where do I even begin?! Lindsay and her team are worth their weight in gold. Lindsay was our lead planner and she made us feel supported, organized, and special from the very beginning. Lindsay took her time with us (me, my husband, and my parents). We would meet every month to perfect the wedding day schedule and other details. We went into wedding week and the wedding itself feeling confident and calm that the day would be everything we imagined, without the stress or hassle of doing it without Lindsay and her team.

Lindsay is detail-oriented, confident, a great listener, and treats her clients with the utmost respect. She was always willing to go the extra mile when coordinating with our other vendors and our venue during the planning process.

On our wedding day, Lindsay was the glue holding everything together. She kept the wedding party in line and on time, and kept me calm. She was somehow everywhere at once, and fully present with whoever she was with. Her team worked MAGIC at our venue while we had our ceremony at the church and pictures taken off-site. Which leads me to Kendra, our assistant planner. Kendra was amazing. I can’t even remember how many times (and how many bobby pins) Kendra took to retouch my hair before the reception. She was there to help me use the bathroom with another bridesmaid when the rest of my crew had suddenly vanished to cocktail hour (as expected!). She was the one leading the way at our venue and it was decorated beautifully without a flaw in sight.

The entire reception ran so smoothly, all thanks to Lindsay and Kendra. They kept us on time, and left us with plenty of time to dance and enjoy ourselves. At the end of the night, we had Veil Events closing crew help to tear down the venue. They were again kind, detail-oriented, and efficient. When we got to our hotel room, Veil Events and Lindsay had left us with a sweet note and some surprises.

I am actually tearing up writing this. Planning a wedding is overwhelming and so stressful. The second we hired Lindsay, I knew I could manage the process because she was so supportive. She even respected my month-off of wedding planning when I had to study for and take the bar exam (you know, only two months before our wedding! Yikes!). If you are considering hiring a wedding planner (which you definitely should – it makes the biggest difference), please please please do yourself a favor and hire Lindsay and her team! I will forever sing their praises!!! THANK YOU LINDSAY AND KENDRA!!!”

Kendra was so essential to the day!

“Could not recommend Kendra and Veil Events enough. I did the month of package, and it took SO MUCH stress off of the month and day-of. The only regret I had was not doing a bigger package! Kendra was so essential to the day, and it allowed my husband and I, plus our moms, to fully enjoy the day. She was professional and personable, and really came through with some major assistance on some hurdles we had with the weather and a surprise the groom was planning. Veil Events was one of our best investments for our wedding. They know what they are doing and will make your big day run so smoothly.”

“I do not know what I would have done without Kendra and Veil Events. They are the reason my wedding day (and the month leading up) went so incredibly smooth and was stress-free. There is so much that goes into planning a wedding and so many details that I didn’t even think about until I had my first meeting. Kendra didn’t miss a beat. You could tell that she genuinely wanted us to have the best day. She brought the sweetest and most calming energy into wedding day while still getting it done and it was exactly what I needed. Veil Events went above and beyond from the moment I hired them. I am forever thankful for everything Kendra and Veil Events did for us to make our wedding so amazing and memorable! THANK YOU!!!”

“Lindsay was my original planner, but Kendra took over for her halfway through planning. Kendra was an absolute life savor throughout my wedding day. She always made sure I was looking my best, touching up my lipgloss or making sure I change into comfy shoes as soon as our first dance was over. She made sure I always had a drink in my hand! We had a little hiccup when the food was delayed and no one even noticed because on the fly, Kendra switched a few events up having us cut the cake during that lull and the night flowed effortlessly. The clean up crew also did a fantastic job, nothing was forgotten and I didn’t even pay attention to how it got where it needed to go. I was truly treated like Royalty!! My other vendors said this was one of the most organized weddings they have been to, the timeline we created was very easy to stick to, with some cushion room for if anything ran late. I highly recommend you to have Veil Events as your planner!!”
