Name for Website DEB3

Deborah has been in the wedding industry for the past six years helping clients plan and execute weddings and events. She has been working as an Event Planner for RKWE since 2018 and we just love her!

Her biggest passion in wedding planning is all in the details because the small things matter to her. She loves mixing different styles, customs and traditions to create a beautiful and meaningful wedding for both the bride and groom. Deborah is just finished working on a special wedding planning project for a major network TV show which she can not wait to share soon!

When not wedding planning she is probably spending time with her family and pets, drinking wine with her friends, reading a new book for her book club or cycling with her husband.

Reviews

We used RK wedding and events as our coordinator. We had Deborah for our wedding and she was amazing! Fun to work with quick to respond easy to get a hold of! She had everything we needed on our wedding day! We are laid back and didn’t think we needed a coordinator but we are so glad we got one! Made everything so much easier!!

Deborah from RK weddings was absolutely amazing!!! I’m the type of person who works well in chaos, and she was very organized and was the opposite of me. Which was exactly what I needed! She was cool calm, got everything done quickly! I felt like she read my mind when I didn’t even discuss certain things. She kept it going smooth! Definitely recommend her. Probably the best money spend on my wedding day.

I worked with Deborah and her team this past weekend at The Grand Ivory. These ladies were so organized, friendly and very enjoyable to work with. They created a stunning event which ran smoothly from start to finish.

We loved using RKWE as our wedding planner! Deb was the lead planner on our wedding, and she did an amazing job making our dream wedding come to life! She was knowledgeable, creative, flexible, communicated well, and handled difficult planning decisions with grace and professionalism. We have received so many compliments on what an amazing job they did planning the wedding and would highly recommend them to anyone starting the wedding planning process!
