Honestly, I could not even begin to describe how A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Kickstand Events and team are! As a bride who is passionate about design and also planning a destination wedding, I feel like I may have been more on the high maintenance side but Sally and Courtney went above and beyond from start to finish! 
Sally is praised by all Wilmington wedding vendors, and I never had to worry that every T was crossed and every i was dotted about all the tiny details and organization of the vendors, schedule, and entire wedding day! Our day was flawless and completely stress-free thanks to Sally! 
Courtney’s attention to detail, passion for what she does, and love for clients was invaluable! And... her design skills especially florals!! One word....STUNNING!!! She also added so many special touches to our day that really made the wedding special, magical, and perfect! :) Our guests are still raving about the beautiful set up the Kickstand team created at Airlie Gardens!
Sally and Courtney are both absolute professionals with incredible talents and, and I will be forever grateful to them for all they did to create the wedding of our dreams!! Love you guys!!

Kickstand was the top choice recommended by my venue, which hosts tons of weddings by tons of event planners. For less than the cost of my wedding band, I had my dream 200-person tented garden wedding handed to me. When I say dream wedding, I mean it. Want hanging floral installations? Chandeliers installed? Floral arch? Planning alone, I would not have known where to go for these services and would have missed out details that made my wedding day. I told Sally and Courtney my ideas and they brought vendor proposals to me. I never had to contact or coordinate with any vendor other than Kickstand, which otherwise would have made my wedding weekend constant phone calls. They even helped me put my order of ceremony together, planned seating and escorts, timeline of my reception-- all things I had never thought of planning and that I didn't know the standard/tradition for. I just showed up to my rehearsal and wedding and the girls took it from there. It was such a relief to not have to do or remember ANYTHING on my wedding weekend. I can't thank Kickstand enough for my perfect day!

Absolutely amazing in every way! They made our wedding day seemless and their attention to detail is incredible! They went above and beyond throughout the entire planning process. My husband and I enjoyed working with them and loved the design, florals and details Courtney put together which was perfectly complimented with the amazing organizational skills Sally has, to pull off a spectacular wedding! They also know bald head island like no one else, which proved to be extremely helpful during the entire process!! I wish I could give more than 5 stars, definitely made the right decision to go with Kickstand for design, planning and day of coordination!!!

The ladies at Kickstand Events are amazing! If there is one thing you should do when starting to plan a North Carolina wedding it should be hire them! I have never been so stress free. I shared my vision via my Pinterest board and they searched out French linen, created a driftwood arbor covered in greenery and designed bouquets and centerpieces even more beautiful then the ideas I had sent them. I never doubted them. I knew they would make it happen and they did! They even set up my entire ceremony and reception outside and when a summer storm popped up on the horizon they took everything down, waited out the thunderstorm, dried the tables, chairs and dance floor and re set up in record time. All the while checking to see that my guests were enjoying an early cocktail hour and that my bridesmaids and I had extra wine and snacks. I actually think they may have ordered that storm so that the sky would be absolutely gorgeous for my wedding pictures.
