"We didn't think that planning a wedding was possible without a planner or within our budget. The girls at Keen gave us great guidance, creative DIY ideas and set us up with the most fantastic vendors we could have imagined. The day was perfect and we didn't have to compromise at all."

- Tim & Erin R., Maryville, IL


"While living 2,000 miles away in Los Angeles, Nichole and her team managed and successfully helped me pull-off an unforgettable surprise wedding anniversary party for my parents in Southern Illinois. The team was always available, day and night, whenever I had questions and they kept me updates regularly. I wouldn't recommend any other event planning company!"

- Becky N., Los Angeles, CA

Nichole and her team did an amazing job planning our party. She made sure everything looked amazing and was hands-on the entire time. She even handmade some decorations and floral center pieces. We had so many people compliment the decorations and set-up. She was incredibly helpful and had a great eye for design. Can't wait to see what she does for our next party!
