As a 2020 bride we had to do some shuffling around of venues. I was so lucky to stumble upon Kia & the Inn a Mount Pleasant! We got married on Sept. 4th! It was the most gorgeous day, so organized & it was truly a dream come true. The hospitality & the determination on getting things done came from such a place of passion. It was better then we could have ever expected. A huge thank you to all. -Lyndsay & Bob
BIG, BIG shoutout to our planner and wedding day coordinator Kia Martinson from Engaged CT. I reached out to Kia only 5 weeks before our wedding date and she helped me pull this thing together seamlessly. When we first decided to go ahead with the at-home wedding instead of our original venue (it was cancelled because of COVID) we still needed a caterer, rentals, and a decor/floor plan vision (I was lost with where to start). Kia had excellent recommendations for vendors and helped me coordinate with them. She came to our site visit with the rental company and helped me plan out the setup of the backyard. She also came to our tasting with the caterer and helped us create and decide on a menu (I was pretty lost there too). She drove to the house again with her team the night before for our ceremony rehearsal and to help with setup. Any time I had a worry or a question, she was available quickly, and was extremely helpful. Sometimes it was as simple as talking me off the ledge or giving advice, and other times she was reaching out to vendors for me when I was just too busy. On the day of my wedding, she worked tirelessly on setting up our GORGEOUS ceremony and reception. Of course, with my luck, it rained, so Kia checked in my me frequently and was ready to go with the rain plan, but also let me wait to decide until 15 minutes before, because she knew getting married outside the tent was important to me. It didn’t end up happening that way, but the ceremony setup she created under that tent was to die for. From the beginning, she was conscious of making the event as safe as possible considering COVID, but also wasn’t pushy and let me make my own choices on how I wanted to handle certain things like masks and the dance floor. (Keep in mind this was at a private residence so I can imagine this might be different at certain venues.) She made sure my parents were happy and taken care of. She made sure my husband and I ate. I was able to completely enjoy my wedding and didn’t have to worry about a single thing because I knew she was taking care of it. If I could give her a thousand stars and a million dollars I would because she absolutely deserves it, and would possibly even give a kidney for her Would ABSOLUTELY recommend, especially if you are a “COVID bride.” -Karen & Tim
