My mom and I met with Kimberly from Weddings By The Vine after deciding on a fairly new vineyard for my (now) husband and my wedding. After chatting for a little while, Kimberly said, “I’ll let you guys go home and talk about it and just get back to me.” But we didn’t need to discuss, just signed right there and I am SO glad we did!! Kimberly was my “month-of” coordinator, but oh my gosh did she go above and beyond! I am not one of those girls that has had a “vision” for my wedding my whole life, but I did know I wanted it to be romantic but not cheesy, rustic but not too country, simple but with gorgeous decor…Kimberly made it happen. Never once did she make me feel like I was annoying her with all my questions (seriously, I was clueless!) and she sent me checklists for a year before, 9 months before, 6 months before, etc. that helped keep my unorganized self on track. She also was in contact with all of my vendors which was extremely helpful! A few weeks after the wedding, she even followed up with a phone call just to make sure I was happy with how everything turned out. She truly cares about her brides and grooms and I just really can’t say enough great things about her!!

Kimberly was our day of wedding coordinator and she was SO helpful in making our event go smoothly. She was always accessible via email or phone if we had questions leading up to the day (extra value!) and she kept us grounded in all the little details that we probably (definitely) would’ve missed if we had been planning it alone. On the day she was super professional, calm, and efficient, making sure setup, the ceremony, each little reception piece, and especially CLEAN UP got handled. Even my mom, the logistics queen, was impressed. Kimberly (and her intern, Caitlin, also awesome) made sure I could just break it down on the dance floor, eat pizza, and play ping pong, without worrying about literally anything. Highly recommended!

Kimberly was an absolutely phenomenal day of coordinator for us. The day of our wedding went so smoothly, she kept the whole event moving seamlessly and completely freed us up to enjoy the happiest day of our lives. She took detailed notes of how we wanted everything set up, and kept up even when we changed our minds on some details throughout the whole process. She followed through with everything she promised us and more.

No review of Kimberly would be complete without mentioning how she went totally above and beyond the call of duty and the scope of her services for us when we had a breakdown with our chosen caterer. The catering service we had contracted started acting strange, and Kimberly invested a lot of time researching catering regulations and contacting people in local government and other professionals she trusted. She went through health department records and found out caterer had never received the required health inspections, and her advice and counsel were indispensable in helping us get our deposit back. She even helped us find a new catering service less than two months before the wedding, who turned out to be great.

Our wedding was a huge success and we definitely couldn’t have done it without Kimberly’s help.

We went to Kimberly right from the start because we knew we wanted a vineyard wedding, but didn’t really know much more about cost, location, etc. She has so much experience and offers tailored packages based on couples’ needs. We got a vineyard venue selection that basically pays for itself! The cost of her working through budget basics, lining up visits, and following through with contracts was invaluable (plus, most vineyards give you a discount if you work with a planner that covers this cost)! She set up 5 visits for us on a Saturday- and we weren’t even going to go to the last one, but she had set it up so we went and totally fell in love! We ended up getting married there 6 weeks ago!!!
She also worked as our “day of” coordinator- but really checked in throughout the planning process, making sure we got our contracts in line and reading over everything before we signed. She went to work full steam about a month before the actual day to really ensure everything was in order. She’s crazy organized- which is EXACTLY what you want in a coordinator- I didn’t have to think about a single thing on my wedding day because I knew Kimberly was already 3 steps ahead! I would recommend Kimberly to anyone getting married!

I don’t think there’s enough space on this website to give Kimberly the praise she deserves! I was very stubborn on not wanting to waste money on a wedding coordinator and thought I could handle the planning process on my own…it was very evident from our first meeting how wrong I was! I chose her day of coordinator services and it was worth every single penny-her prices are EXTREMELY reasonable for what she provides. From day one she was able to help with details I hadn’t even considered and she was a huge asset in helping me find a few of my key vendors. She took time out of her schedule to meet us at our venue a couple hours away to ensure everything would go smoothly on our big day. And of course most importantly of all, I don’t know what I would have done if she hadn’t been there to keep us directed and on time the day of the wedding. Both the planning process and the wedding weekend were stress free and easy thanks to Kimberly! She truly makes you feel as though you’re the only wedding she’ll ever plan and is overall a great person to work with (I can’t tell you how much fun my mom and I had meeting with her!). If you’re even considering a wedding coordinator, just contact Kimberly immediately-you’ll find no better coordinator than Weddings by the Vine!!

I would highly recommend Kimberly. We received the best service anyone could ever ask for. I am very family oriented, and Kimberly made us feel like she was a friend and helpful in every way. We never felt pressure and always felt like we could speak our mind. I would recommend Kimberly and Weddings by the Vine to my best friend.

Working with Kimberly Williams was the highlight of my wedding planning experience. Kimberly is a true professional who helped make my wedding day AMAZING. I did not have to worry about a thing prior to the wedding or during the wedding because she was on top of everything. She did the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner and day of wedding coordination for us. That means she handled contacting vendors 2 weeks prior to our big day, found us a rehearsal dinner venue, conducted a flawless rehearsal and rehearsal dinner and did just about everything behind the scenes that you can think of at our ceremony and reception. She is the reason I did not stress prior to the big day and why our whole event flowed so smoothly. I couldn’t have done all the planning without her! She contacted all the vendors, as well as met with us in person several times before the wedding! She was very fast at responding to emails and phone calls and made us a checklist and a timeline so we had everything ready for our wedding day! The day of the wedding, she made sure everyone knew where they were supposed to be and when, transitioning each wedding event perfectly (first dance, cupcake cutting, shoe dance…), making sure I had my favorite drink and food… I worried about no detail because I knew she was on top of everything! I cannot say ENOUGH good things about Kimberly and all of my guests said the same. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable, sweet, and worth her weight in GOLD! I highly recommend her to any bride for full wedding coordination or day of coordination. Whether it is an outdoor vineyard wedding, a backyard wedding or anything in between, I would recommend Kimberly to absolutely anyone! Everyone said that our outdoor wedding at our pond was the best wedding they had ever attended. Thanks Kimberly for helping us to make our dream come true!

Kimberly was beyond amazing. At the very beginning of the wedding planning process, she met with me to make sure we were on the same page as far as what I had in mind and from that point on, things clicked and she was a perfect match for what I was looking for/ needed. Kimberly handled all my day-of ‘stuff’ including decorating, table placements, linens, a candy table, decorating two Christmas trees, and organizing all the vendors so that I didn’t have a SINGLE worry in the world the morning of my big day! She is perfectly organized, thoughtful about every detail, and totally KNOWS what she is doing! She’s perfect and was money well spent. Thanks Kimberly for helping to make our day so special and perfect!

- Mallory





From the beginning, Kimberly took the time to get to know the two of us and, throughout the wedding planning process, was able to seamlessly incorporate the numerous details and out-of-the-box ideas that helped to make our wedding perfect. She is organized, yet flexible. Despite us being in NYC and only being able to visit NC a few times to plan on-site, she was able to easily and consistently keep us on track (in terms of both time frame and budgeting), to find our perfect vendors (despite us having very restrictive time frames whilst in NC), and was able to efficiently communicate with all of our vendors (from start-to-finish, despite all of our vendors being local, small businesses) to help create and execute our perfect wedding. We had a perfect wedding, and we have Kimberly to thank. She was amazing.

Kimberly directed my wedding and helped with photographs and getting ready for the reception. I am so thankful that we had her there! She made sure that everything went smoothly and was so helpful. Thank you Kimberly!

My husband and I were amazed how Kimberly made our wedding ceremony and reception smooth and fun. We were able enjoy our wedding day because of Kimberly’s knowledge and expertise. We had not planned on a wedding coordinator for our event, but as we started our planning we realized that we were going to need some help. Kimberly’s attention to detail and organization made the process extremely easy. She sent reminders and to do lists to make sure everything was in order. She was very professional and setup a couple meetings at our venue to go over all details and make sure everything would be setup correct. She exceeded all of our expectations I could have hoped for in a wedding planner!

Kimberly is fantastic to work with from start to finish. She makes the whole process of planning a wedding simple and easy with her monthly follow up emails and couple to do lists. She is very organized and made sure that all the details were documented. She kept in contact with all of the vendors to make sure they knew exactly what to do. The wedding day went extremely smooth and everyone had a great time. With Kimberly we were able to enjoy every moment of our wedding without worrying about a thing. We can’t thank Kimberly enough for everything she did to make our wedding day great!

- Amy & Tom

Kimberly’s attention to detail was impeccable. She truly was the rock during the planning process and was the serenity and peacefulness the day of the wedding. On the day of the wedding, we were fighting rain and cloudy weather and were really up in the air about which plan to execute, she really handled the delicate situation with flair and created a beautiful wedding atmosphere for all to enjoy! Not only did we get an amazingly planned event with a top notch professional, we made a lifelong friendship.

We were simply amazed at how Kimberly made our wedding ceremony and reception details seem so effortless. Looking back on it all, we were able to focus on us and enjoy our wedding day as a result of Kimberly’s knowledge and expertise with wedding planning. Her approach was welcoming and made it easy to communicate how we envisioned our wedding day. My husband and I began planning our vineyard wedding and found that we were having difficulty pulling all the pieces together to meet our specific vision on/under budget. We had not planned on a wedding coordinator to see our event through but it became increasing evident that we needed meticulous attention to detail as we drew closer to our wedding date and fortunate for us, Kimberly stepped in at the right time to assist us and guide us every step of the way. Our only regret is that we did not have Kimberly help plan our wedding from the very beginning! Not being familiar with the expansive NC wine region proved to be a challenge for us whereas Kimberly’s expertise in NC vineyards/venues could have helped us early on in making smarter choices to fit both our vision and our budget. Kimberly’s contacts and knowledge of area vendors for catering, flowers, music, etc. proved to be very helpful. She was very instrumental in maintaining the vision for our wedding and not easily distracted by any problems that had arisen along the way. I could always count on her to come up with solutions and suggestions to overcome any obstacles. She absolutely exceeded all expectations that my husband and I could have ever hoped for in a wedding planner!

Kimberly at Weddings by the Vine is absolutely fabulous. She has fantastic expertise and contacts that will make the entire wedding process painless. She has incredible organization and thinks of all the little details that will make your day truly special. Kimberly made sure that our wedding day went as smoothly as possible. She ensured that our schedule was organized and that our vendors knew exactly what to do and where to go. I would recommend Kimberly to anyone!

I don’t even know where to begin to thank Kim at Weddings by The Vine! I was a bridesmaid in a friends wedding, and Kim did the rehearsal. It ran so smoothly I was excited to ask for her help in my wedding! I was a total DIY bride but when it came to coordinating the day of I would have been LOST without her! She made sure everything was set up exactly as I wanted! The ceremony went perfectly – exactly how we had always imagined! She handled all of the hiccups great and without stressing me out! Kim really got to know us as a couple and what we wanted for our big day, she did everything she could to make it that way. She knew the right questions to ask about things I did not even think of from the cues to changing the music to the logistics of the reception. She coordinated with all of my vendors and on the day of my wedding I had ABSOLUTELY no worries. KIM WAS PERFECT!!! I would highly recommend her to any one of my close friends!

Kim was amazing to work with throughout the entire ceremony planning process. We had no idea what we were doing or what was traditional for a ceremony, and Kim had all the info! She planned and organized our ceremony in no time, and the day of everything went smoothly. Thanks to her direction at the rehearsal dinner, everyone knew exactly what to do and where to walk (even though we did not rehearse at the actual location). She knew the layout of the ceremony site and the logistics of how everyone would need to move so that no one was confused on the actual day. Thanks to her the ceremony was completely stress free and I was able to enjoy the day!
