Favorite part of wedding day
My favorite part of a wedding day is the first look. This is a wonderful moment when the groom and bride can be authentically themselves and watching the nerves/butterflies fly away is something they both will cherish without even knowing it. 

Wedding day tip
Don’t be afraid to do something that isn’t a popular opinion. This is your day, and while we all try to cater to and accommodate our family and friends, don’t forget the real reason everyone is there; you! If you want something to occur a specific way, please let us know so we can help make that happen. 

Wedding experience
I’ve worked in the industry for a little over 10 years!

Hire Veil Events because…
On the day of your wedding you want yourself, your groom, and your family to be enjoying the day with you and soaking up every moment. This day flies by and taking one moment to handle a silly task like setting out place cards or directing a vendor can easily be handled by a coordinator. We are the insurance to your day to ensure that everything envisioned your day to be, will be!

Love for the industry
Simply said, I love love. Watching two people become a unit and bring together their family and friends is such a special moment that should be honored and cherished. Being a part of someone’s special day is a gift that I don’t take lightly but enjoy and remember for a lifetime!

Paige's Reviews

I can’t imagine what the day would’ve been like without our coordinators!

“Veil Events is truly the best of the best. Our coordinator, Paige, was so incredibly helpful throughout our whole wedding planning process and especially on our big day! We had tons of special and unique requests, and Paige made all of them happen. The Veil Events team went above and beyond to flip our ceremony space to the reception setup in record time, and it was no small flip! Along with keeping our whole bridal party and guests on track throughout the whole day, Paige and Taylor also kept my dress in perfect picture position, and even fixed my dress when my strap POPPED at the reception. I can’t imagine what the day would’ve been like without our coordinators, true heroes!!”

I would recommend veil events to anyone that is getting married!!

“Lindsay and Paige did such a wonderful job at my wedding. I had zero stress on my wedding day, it was perfect and everything was so well organized thanks to them! Paige, Lindsay and the rest of the veil events crew is knowledgeable, professional and easy to be around. I would recommend veil events to anyone that is getting married!!”

Paige and Taylor made the day perfect!

“100% if you are wanting a stress-free wedding day, hire this company!! Paige helped me stay stress-free for the last month before the wedding and helped move our day along. It was absolutely perfect! I had a completely stress-free day, something I was not anticipating. Paige and Taylor made the day perfect!”
 

Haley Adam & Sean Weddle – 9.3.2022 – Kay’s Garden, Topeka

Would not have enjoyed my wedding day nearly as much without Paige!

“Paige was so helpful to me during the month before my wedding. She completely took over contacting vendors a week or so before the wedding which was such a relief. Having her there to coordinate the ceremony rehearsal was fantastic. On my wedding day, she was doing everything for me in regard to catering delivery and set up, corralling the families, and anything else I needed while I got ready. Would not have enjoyed my wedding day nearly as much without Paige.”

Paige was absolutely AMAZING!

“Paige with Veil Events was absolutely AMAZING! I am so happy and thankful I hired a day-of-coordinator. I planned the majority of my wedding but started to get stressed and nervous about how I was going to pull all of the small details together the day of the wedding. As soon as I hired Paige with Veil Events, I immediately felt at ease. We had many meetings where we went over the Wedding Planning Guide provided by Veil Events and Paige helped create a timeline for the day of the wedding. I am usually the type of person who gets worked up and anxious about things going the way I planned, however, I was amazed by how relaxed I was the day of the wedding. I owe this all to Paige. She took care of everything including coordinating vendor arrivals/setup. She even had a handy emergency wedding kit that became very useful! I can’t say enough good things about Paige and recommend every bride hires a day-of-coordinator to help them make the most out of their special day!”

I had a stress free wedding and it was all because of Paige!

“One of the first things I did in my wedding planning was hire Paige Auten as my coordinator. Best decision ever. She helped me step by step with each part of the planning process. I was pretty organized with the big stuff but it was so nice to have her experience and recommendations for all the details. She helped set the timeline in preparation of the big day. In the two weeks-month leading up to the wedding she was so on top of everything. She reached out to each of my vendors to chat with them about the timeline and ensure everyone was there at the correct time on the wedding day. Rehearsal day she was there on time to help us go over last minute details and make sure my wedding party knew where they were supposed to be. She even pointed out key picture opportunities specific for our venue. Her recommendations for a picture is one of my favorite shots we received. Day of was really where she thrived. She arrived at the exact time she said she would and helped us stay on time for our pictures. When I was worried we had fallen behind, she reassured me we were fine and she had built in a cushion of time to our timeline. She was on top of any worry that I had and ensured everything ran smoothly and was fun! She was absolutely clutch during family photos. She had me make a photo list ahead of time so we knew exactly what shots we wanted. It was pretty cold the day of and pictures were outside, and she had us done with family photos in abut 12 minutes because she knew exactly where everyone should stand. We had to do a full flip for our reception after our ceremony, and together with our catering staff, photographer/videographer, she had the full flip done in 20 minutes. I am sure there are other details I am forgetting but let me assure you, if you hire her for your wedding it will be the best decision you make in the planning process. I truly had a stress free wedding and it was all because of her!”

I personally felt like Paige was a friend I could lean on all day!

“Paige and her day of helper Jaclyn absolutely killed it! They truly made our day so special and relaxing. When we hired Veil Events and met Paige we knew instantly that we were going to survive the last few months of planning because we could 100% trust Paige was going to execute everything perfectly. She provided great recommendations and listened when something was important to us. I personally felt like Paige was a friend I could lean on all day. Reed and I would highly encourage anyone to hire Veil Events for their wedding coordination needs. On a scale of 10 they get a 100! THANK YOU!”
 

Emily Calvert & Reed Waldon – 11.13.2021 – Hotel Kansas City, KCMO

Paige was so professional and made us feel so much more relaxed!

“I cannot thank Paige and her assistant Elisabeth with Veil Events enough for everything they did for me. My mom and I had NO idea how to run a rehearsal or the order of events that should happen the day of the wedding. After our first meeting with Paige, she made us feel so much more relaxed and we were able to enjoy the last couple of months leading up to the wedding. Paige was so professional and prepared with any scenario that popped up during the day. She even helped keep me calm when we realized one of my earrings had broken! Paige helped make my wedding dreams come to life. I am so thankful I had them there that day so that my mom and I could enjoy getting ready together knowing Paige had everything handled out there. I can’t recommend Veil Events enough!”
 

Alexis Rieschick & Harley Wright – 11.6.2021 – Kay’s Garden, Topeka

Paige is the reason my wedding day was 0% stress and 100% joy!

“Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value We hired Veil Events for month-of-coordination. In addition to helping us stay on track, giving great advice and ideas, and making the wedding planning process fun, Paige and the Veil team is the reason my wedding day was 0% stress and 100% joy. We had (very organized) friends get married without any help a month before us and they were so stressed working on timelines and details for the last month. In contrast, because I’d had clear and prompt communication leading up to the month of our wedding and knew exactly what to expect, I spent the last two weeks calm and collected knowing that I was in experienced, professional, kind hands. A great example of this is our ceremony was outside (my worst nightmare) but because of Paige’s multiple backup plans I felt confident that no matter the weather I was going to have a wonderful wedding day. And I did! Paige and the Veil team’s professionalism was also evident in their interactions with other vendors. No DJ yet? They got this. Lost flowers? They got this. It was so nice to know they had everything under control no matter what was thrown at them. My only regret is not hiring Veil for full wedding planning and turning over more to them as I think it would have made being engaged more fun. Throughout my wedding day, Paige and the Veil team made sure I had nothing to worry about and that I was getting everything I wanted out of my day. Worth. Every. Penny.”

If you want a beautiful and STRESS FREE day, hire Veil Events!

“We hired Veil Events for day of coordination and clean up for our wedding. Paige A. was our coordinator. I cannot imagine my wedding day without her! She helped me stay on track with the timeline throughout the wedding planning process. She communicated with all my vendors to ensure they were on time, and suggested vendors when I didn’t know who to use. Paige communicated with the vendors about where they were supposed to be and when they were supposed to be there. She was there the day of to make sure everyone stayed on schedule/everything went smoothly. She set up, and perfectly executed my vision for the reception hall. She was there as an emotional support if I needed anything. If you want a beautiful and STRESS FREE day, hire Veil Events. I had my dream wedding and I couldn’t have done it without them!”
 

Emily Preheim & Steven Farve – 9.18.2021 – St Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, Topeka

Paige was SO great and made sure our day was perfect!

“Veil Events was absolutely amazing. Everything was perfect and they relieved so much stress before the wedding and day of. Paige A. was SO great and made sure our day was perfect. This was hands down the best decision to hire them to coordinate our wedding!”
 

Ellarie Siegel & Jordan Ochsner – 9.4.2021 – Kay’s Garden, Topeka

My wedding went amazing truly because of Paige!

“I hired Veil Events to help us manage our wedding day and it was truly the best decision I made! I became very overwhelmed a few months before our day with schedules and timing and all of the day of details. Paige was our day of coordinator and we had multiple zoom calls before hand to go over everything. Veil Events has an amazing guide through Google Sheets that kept me organized and was always there for us to reference all of my details. Paige coordinated all of my vendors, attended my final planning meeting at my venue and was always available to help! Her wedding expertise is so valuable. The day of my wedding went amazing truly because of Paige. Anything that came up she quickly handled and kept the day so calm and fun. I truly can’t recommend hiring Veil Events enough, it was the best decision I made!”
 

Bailey O’Neal & Austin Walker – 6.26.2021 – Terrace on Grand, KCMO

Paige had EVERYTHING in place!

“Veil Events was amazing and helpful from the very start. Within a few weeks of hiring veil events, I was assigned a wedding coordinator PAIGE AUTEN. We immediately started texting and was able to start sharing ideas with her. Although I hired her for month of coordinator, we still were able to call and text other and it was an easy way to exchange the smaller questions I had. The month before the wedding, two meetings with paige was enough because of how much we had communicated prior to the “month of”. Paige was through and had an answer for all of my questions. The day of my wedding came, and I truly never felt so calm. Paige had EVERYTHING in place. I asked several questions and she already had all of those things I needed. in place. The wedding day was smooth and perfect. Honestly nothing went wrong and everything went exactly as planned. In our honeymoon suite at the end of the night, we came to a room with a lovely card, rose petals and treats and food for a late night snack. She was so thoughtful in every single way, I would hire her all over again. If there was a way to leave more than 5 star, Veil events and Paige deserve it. They made my fairy tale wedding come true.”

I knew Veil had us covered! 

“Working with Veil Events was a breeze! I did the month-of coordination package, and the meetings leading up to my wedding were so helpful to keep me on track, and my coordinator, Paige, helped me think of things I’d never even considered before & answered all of our questions. I felt calm & prepared going into wedding day, because I knew Veil had us covered! On wedding day, Paige kept us on schedule so all my family and wedding party could just focus on having FUN! She did so much I couldn’t even list it all here, but some highlights- she thought of all the little things like keeping track of my special items I walked down the aisle with so they didn’t get lost, helped touch up my makeup when it started to settle, held my flowers when my arms were getting tired, and got our fancy champagne glasses washed in between our cocktail hour and cake cutting so we didn’t have to worry about it. She took my veil out of my hair for me when I was ready to get the dancing going, and even left us a sweet surprise in our room at the end of the night. I would totally recommend Veil events to all future brides, they make it so easy for you, and take the stress off of your family & friends so they can be in the moment with you and your partner. Thank you Veil, especially Paige!! :)”
 

Beth McSweeney & Ty Scott – 5.31.2021 – The Brownstone, Topeka

I’m forever thankful for these girls and how much they made my day! They are the BEST!

“I knew from day 1 that I wanted Veil Events to be apart of my wedding day because they were apart of my best friends big day. & I saw how they went above AND beyond for her. Paige was there for me throughout my entire engagement and was always ready and willing to help. She even made sure I knew she was one text away if I needed her for absolutely anything- even the stress of the big day approaching. I highly recommend Veil Events – they will make the process smooth, organized and just plain LOVELY. The wedding planning guide was extremely helpful and sets them apart from other coordinators (although they were truly the only coordinator I was even considering). I used it up until my big day as it was an easy guide to refer back to and had everything I needed- from each vendor down to their phone numbers. We chose to add on the end of the night service and I mean to tell you Kaylie was an angel. She knew exactly what needed to be done and was SO helpful. This was an important service to add on and I don’t know how brides go without. I truly could cry writing this – I am forever thankful for these girls and how much they made my day! They are the BEST!”

I found much more than a day-of-coordinator!

I was searching for a day-of-coordinator for my wedding. Blooms on Boswell mentioned Lindsay and Veil Events. I found much more than a day-of-coordinator! Right away, they sent me a spreadsheet to fill out. The process seemed overwhelming at first, but Paige guided me through what I needed to include. It was wonderful to have everything from the vendor’s information, photo list for the photographer to a detailed timeline all in one place. The organization made the day flow smoothly! If anything went wrong, I didn’t hear about it. I was able to enjoy the day without worry. I never once felt rushed. Above all else, Paige felt like an ally. When my vision was muddied by everyone else’s vision or expectations, Paige helped me realize what I wanted and she stuck to it!
If a friend of mine were to hire your coordinator from Veil Events. I say, “girl, you made the best decision of your life… next to marrying your love, of course.” The wedding guide made all the difference. The process was much more streamlined than other planning guides I looked at. It was okay that I didn’t have all the answers. Especially, as a Covid bride. I replanned my wedding 3 times! Despite the uncertainty and unknowns, the Planning Guide was my go-to document for organization and calming my anxiety. The guide also made communication between my coordinator, Paige, my mom and vendors much easier!
Veil Events referred to me was ACA Rental. Listen, ACA has THE most beautiful rentals. They have Farm tables, backdrops, linens you will actually want to look at, and chairs that you wouldn’t even think of covering. The planning for my wedding changed frequently. ACA was accommodating and prompt. Their prices might be a bit higher, but 100% worth if for quality items.
Due to Covid, we held our ceremony and reception in the middle of the woods… It was no small feat. We had to build a venue from the ground up. Paige visited the property and gave wonderful advice. Every detail was considered. Despite having multiple weddings to attend to, I felt like I was the only bride she was thinking about. Paige was available and willing to approach any challenge. That girl can think on her feet!

Paige Took Care of Everything!

 

“Our wedding day was stress free thanks to Veil Events! In attempt to save money, we weren’t going to hire a wedding coordinator, however, after finding Veil Events at the price they charge, it would have been silly not to, and I’m so glad we did! When I hired Veil Events, I thought I had most of my details planned out, but the guide they provided me helped pinpoint different ideas that I hadn’t even thought of. Paige, our day of coordinator, was amazing and drove to Kansas City to meet with me one on one, no questions asked. The day of the rehearsal dinner, she came to my house to transport the decorations and reception items to limit what me and my family would have to transport. The day of the wedding, she took care of EVERYTHING. I felt like I could truly enjoy our wedding day without the stress of the details. I’ve already recommended Veil Events to my friends beginning to plan their wedding and will continue to do so in the future!”
Sierra Henness – 4.28.2019 – Heritage Hall, Liberty, Mo

Wedding Planning Guide Was Extremely Helpful!

 

“Hiring Veil Events was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Our wedding coordinator, Paige, helped me make decisions while wedding planning by giving her professional advice and putting together a detailed timeline to make sure that things ran smoothly on our big day. Wedding day was a breeze thanks to Paige and my husband and I, along with my friends and family, were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that everything was being taken care and in good hands. My husband, who was a little unsure about hiring a wedding coordinator, was even raving about how amazing Paige was and said that hiring her was without a doubt worth every penny. I can’t imagine going through wedding day without a coordinator and would confidently recommend Veil Events to any bride!

The Wedding Planning Guide was an extremely helpful tool to use while wedding planning. Lindsay thought of it all when designing this guide and it is so helpful to keep track of vendors, budget, checklists and timelines. It is a great way to stay organized and on top of things in the craziness that wedding planning can bring.”

They Made Everything Easy

“I cannot speak highly enough about Veil Events!!! From the moment I began working with these ladies, they made everything so easy. They were always available and met with me numerous times before my wedding day. My personal wedding planner was professional, friendly, and made me feel like my wedding day was as important to her as it was to me. She didn’t miss a detail in the planning, decorating, and execution of the entire day. I honestly didn’t have to worry about a single thing and was able to enjoy my wedding day to the fullest!! I HIGHLY recommend Veil Events if you are looking for a vendor to help make your wedding day memorable and as stress free as possible!!!.”  

 

Stacy Schreiner-Stewart – 5.3.2019 – The Foundry Event Center, Topeka

She Made An Incredible Timeline For Us:

“I cannot say enough good words about Paige, Lindsay, and Veil Events. From the day we hired Paige Auten, she was a resource for any questions we had all the way through wedding day. She made an incredible timeline for us, gave us great advice on wedding day decisions, and made wedding day a BREEZE. I was able to fully enjoy and take in every little moment of wedding day because I knew Paige was taking care of everything. Caden even mentioned how grateful he was that we had hired Paige because he knew how much of a burden that took off of me. We are so extremely grateful that we had Paige on our side for wedding day, it truly was the best day ever.”
