Now, almost a decade later, Robin and her dedicated team strive to create an environment that cultivates creativity and connection.

"What an incredible pleasure it was to work with Robin and her team for our daughter's wedding! It was such a relief to have Robin as our wedding coordinator to anticipate, understand and work through the significant amount of details. Moving forward with the wedding plans during the pandemic created tricky issues, yet Robin worked diligently to navigate and consider every opportunity and responsibility. We were even changing venues up until 2 weeks ahead of wedding day - Robin made it all happen! We also very much appreciated the excellent communication with Robin in the weeks leading up to the event. Overall, this very special day of celebrating Kaelyn and Cameron was even more spectacular because of the hard work and attention to detail from Robin. A big sincere thank you from my whole heart."

"I can’t say “thank you” enough and I wouldn’t change one thing, Robin and her team were impeccable. Robin went above and beyond for my husband and I! She answered every call, text and email about all my crazy bridezilla questions. She honestly helped relieve all the stress of the wedding planning process by taking it out of my hands! There are not enough words to describe how grateful we are for Robin being part of our special day. She is quick and knows how to handle situations on the spot. She is very good about keeping to schedules and adapting accordingly. If you need a Wedding Planner, choose Robin Ballard Events because, not only does she do an amazing job, but she does it with a genuine heart and is very professional! I won’t plan another party without Robin Ballard Events!"


"Best Wedding Planner Ever - for anyone looking for a wedding planner for their big day, I cannot recommend Robin and her team enough to you. My wife and I had a fairly large wedding of over 200 people. As you can imagine with a wedding this size things can be certainly stressful. But when the big day came everything went perfectly due to Robin's hard work and attention to detail. To be honest my wife and I cannot have imagined a more beautiful day and we owe a debt of gratitude to Robin's thoroughness. Robin is so well connected in the industry that she helped us find the perfect vendors for our needs. For many of the things we were unsure of we gave her some creative control and that was a blessing because her taste is impeccable. Most of all though she is just a very kind person who is an absolute pleasure to work with. We cannot have imagined our big day going any better than it did and we owe much of that to Robin and her team. If you are looking for a wedding planner she is the absolute best out there."
