"Karissa was such a huge help on our wedding day!! The whole day went SO smoothly and was completely stress-free! She is beyond kind and I felt so comfortable knowing she was behind all the little details on the big day! She listened to all my ideas I had and really brought every single one to life! I know our day would not have been as amazing as it was without all of her help!"

"Karissa was amazing!!! She ran our whole wedding today almost by herself and without any issues she has great creativity and vision. She was super accommodating with visits and she worked with our schedule even did a phone visit with us. Our wedding went off without any issues all thanks to her! She’s by far the best wedding planner out there without a shadow of a doubt. Thank you so much Karissa for making our day wonderful!"

"I'm a Photographer and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Karissa recently! She was so organized and had the best ideas. She quite literally put together a dream shoot out of the bare minimum that I had given her.
Her personality is radiant and she makes everyone around her feel comfortable. I can't say enough great things.
She also put together a gorgeous flower arrangement last second when we needed it!! There's nothing she can't do."

"Karissa is hands down the best wedding planner ever to hire! I cannot begin to express how necessary she was to making my wedding day half as amazing as it was! I was so thankful to have her expertise every step of the way, from what vendors to use, to having a timeline that made sense. Give her a call and you won’t be disappointed!"

"My husband and I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing Karissa was to work with! Planning a wedding from 4 hours away is never an easy task, which is the main reason we even chose to look into a coordinator for our wedding day. We had our wedding in Branson on 8/12 and Karissa made the whole day seem like it was absolutely perfect. The entire venue could have been up in smoke and she would've found a way to keep Austin and I distracted until it was fine again. She made sure the rehearsal dinner went smoothly and was right back at the venue at 9am to do the same for the wedding day. We are so happy with the investment we made in Karissa and Ethereal Events. If my husband and I had to redo everything for the wedding, we wouldn't even question having her as our coordinator once more. Our timeline was perfect, the vendors knew exactly who to go to if they had any questions (the answer is Karissa, or anybody but us), and Karissa took care of us throughout the entire day. She made sure we had food, drinks, and fresh air.
100% recommend Ethereal Events and booking her for your wedding. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!!!"

"I was impressed with Karissa at every step of the process from planning, design, to the day of execution! She always stayed so calm through any hiccups, and brought a meticulous level of detail to everything - down to the napkins. She brings a unique flair to her design style that blew me away! I can't wait to find another event to work with her."

"As a florist I have worked with Karissa at Ethereal on a couple of different projects completely OPPOSITE in aesthetic, but executed to perfection. She had a gift for grasping what the end vision is and communicating/executing it seamlessly. I would recommend Ethereal to absolutely any person planning a wedding or event. Selecting an event planner can be daunting because of how much trust you have to have in your coordinator, but with Ethereal you will feel so comfortable knowing that every little detail has been addressed and you are getting the best, friendliest treatment possible!"

"She was phenomenal. Designed, themed and organized my wedding from start to finish, including keeping track of more than six different vendors. Highly recommend. Especially for design coordination. She knows color scheme and how to put a room together."

"My experience as the mother of the bride was all in a labor of love 💕 I started organizing glassware, making flower arrangements, gathering decor and furniture. It’s a big deal and lots of work. All of my hard work finally paid off when we hired Karissa!! She was able to lay out the decorating according to plans for accommodating 150 expected guests. I was able to turn everything over to her as she allowed me to be less stressed so I could concentrate on just being a mother on this very special day
💗 she kept things organized, moving in a timely manner and never stopped until it was completed. Karissa’s commitment was over the top. Thanks for everything and good luck with your journey 🥰💕"
Sally McCord

"Karissa is one of the hardest workers you will meet. She doesn’t complain when you ask her to do something, takes on tasks quickly and efficiently and is a super quick learner. You will definitely feel at ease hiring her for your next event. I highly recommend her and can’t wait to work with her again."

"I had never worked a real wedding with Karissa with Ethereal Events before yesterday. I have really worked with some top notch wedding planners that I adore dearly. And Karissa is for sure one of them. The weather was awful and the ceremony had to be moved inside. Karissa went way out of her way to create some kind of ceremony looking area inside with florals, she announced dances and entrances, she catered to guests, she obliged the couple on many things that I am sure she was not contracted to do. It's people like that who inspire me. Thank you for showing incredible kindness to all of those people yesterday Karissa. Thank you for going that extra mile and making me so proud to know you."
