I hired Kai Taylor from A Planned Affair Event Company in 2013 to be my Event Planner for my 50th Birthday Party which included 100 guests. She was one of the most professional, precise, and prompt people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
Her professionalism proved to be more than I expected as she made ABSOLUTELY SURE that EVERYTHING that I requested for this very special occasion was done with the utmost level of professionalism. This was demonstrated in her ability to provide the party with both quality and quantity amounts of product that was specifically requested for this event, all the while making sure that she specifically kept the lines of communication open with myself.
Her precision to detail is to be applauded by all who has or will have in the future the pleasure of ever working with her. As a result of this very important characteristic, my 50th Birthday Party was FLAWLESS! She met EVERY ONE of my special requests and exceeded ALL of my expectations.
In addition, her discipline to meet and greet all of those who where involved, directly and indirectly, with making my special event extra special in a very timely manner also did not go unnoticed. Her respect for one's time was demonstrated in her promptness to ALWAYS be on time as well as to make sure also those who worked with her and for her.
However, what has not been mentioned is what I consider her GREATEST GIFT in this field of event planning, and that is her GIFT of CREATIVITY. This is how I choose to describe her talent, as a GIFT from GOD. Ms. Taylor's GIFT of CREATIVITY is very unique. She has the ability to listen to one's vision regarding his or her event, and CREATE it in reality in such a way that you know it had to be only God who had whispered such meticulous details in her ear. Needless to say, she's incredible, insightful, and intelligent.
What Ms. Taylor and A Planned Affair created for my very special 50th Birthday party was Elegant, Exquisite, and Excellent to say the least, and for this I am ETERNALLY GRATEFUL.
I am writing today to let anyone who needs to know about Kai Taylor's skill set. I first would like to start by saying that I for many years have always wanted to get married. I have written out many plans and watched many TV shows on how weddings are done and so forth. I am now 46 years old with great expectations.
However, we as a couple started out getting engaged on our cruise to St.Thomas but, because we an older couple we were going to go to the Justice of the peace. However our family, upon returning home were not having that at all. So, we were referred to Kai to help with our arrangements.
I must say that we did have quite a bit of family support. Kai took the reigns. My wedding and reception were the fairy tale that I had always hoped my wedding would be. Especially, the reception hall it was absolutely gorgeous!
Kai and Her Staff are to be commended they truly delivered!
I can never say thank you enough Kai!
Sincerely and Always with Love,

Every since I was a teen I loved to throw parties, if I wasn't having one for myself I would talk my friends into letting me throw one for them. There's just something about getting people you know or love together in the same room and celebrating!
Over the past few years I have been actively pursing a career in the hospitality industry by working to obtain my degree in Event Management through Ivy Tech Community College. I have enrolled into the International Special Event Society (ISES), which will allow me the opportunity to stay in tune with the latest trends and designs in the event industry. I have also worked for various catering companies throughout the city and developed strong relationships that assist in planning unforgettable events. Milestones such as birthday parties, family additions, reunions, product launches and fundraising are just a few reasons to enlist in our services.
When I'm not planning events, I'm begging my husband Dereck to have small social gatherings at our house or constantly seeking the advice of our 13 year old son Donovan, about the coolest hip new themes for kids his age. If I had my way, I would plan events non-stop, I love everything about the process and I truly enjoy working with my clients and creating a personal relationship. It's not always just business with me, I believe an event planner is more than just hired help, it involves trust, communication, and commitment just like any other relationship and that is something I am 100% dedicated to provide.
