Karina of bluGarden Events is the ideal planner. As a bride I was overwhelmed, over extended and budget conscious but Karina was
great at alleviating all of that stress. I was consumed in the little details
and the day of being “perfect” but Karina helped me prioritize and stay focused. In terms of flexibility, she’s an A+ by far. I admire her warm, reassuring and calm personality. I would definitely recommend her
to any couple seeking a wedding coordinator.Arielle & Jerome Etienne, Washington, DC
