“We’ve had the pleasure of working with Philadelphia Event Planners on numerous occasions. In addition to creating and overseeing amazing weddings & events with creativity, professionalism and fun attitudes, they have made our job SO much easier so we can dedicate our time to taking photos, what we do best! Karen and her staff are SO awesome, we would recommend them without hesitation for full service planning or day or coordination.” – Jackie Bayne, Love Shack Photography

“I contracted for ‘day of’ wedding planning but we got so much more than that! My coordinator kept track of all the contracts and confirmed with each vendor before the wedding. She provided excellent recommendations for new vendors. She was available for all aspects of wedding planning from music to place cards. The day of the wedding was seamless and we didn’t have to think of anything except having a good time. Just a great experience!” – Mother of the bride

“We had a great experience! Our coordinator Kassie always responded immediately to our questions and was so organized and well-prepared. On our wedding day it was over 100 degrees and she even thought to bring little hand-held electric fans to keep me and the groom cool in between photos! We’re so glad we used Karen Pecora events now Philadelphia Event Planners; the value for the service and attention we received was just amazing.” – Bride

“We appreciated greatly all the work Karen did for us – and her amazing resources she opened to us – we are very grateful to her for a wonderful wedding.” – Bride

“I will never forget the look on Tom’s face when he entered his casino lounge. He never expected such a smashing event for his 40th birthday. Let’s start brainstorming the 50th because we have set the bar pretty high – it was an amazing evening. I could not have never done it without you!!”  – Susan, wife
