Favorite part of wedding day
I love the rush we get as planners when we are sending everyone down the aisle for the ceremony. All the guests have arrived, music is playing, the bridal party is lined up and the bride is about to walk into a room with everyone she loves to marry her best friend! 

Wedding day tip
It’s one day!! Please don’t get too stressed about how wedding day will look. Focus on how you want to feel and what you want to be doing. Brides who hire a coordinator can be guests at their own wedding and not have to stress or worry about the setup, vendors, and the work it takes to put on a party. Focus on feeling relaxed and excited for the day. 

Wedding Experience
The first wedding I coordinated was for a friend in April 2014, and I’ve never looked back!  

Hire Veil Events because…
You’ve never planned a wedding before, so asking for help is okay. A wedding is not like planning a Christmas party or Birthday party. There are more guests, vendors, people, setup, and moving parts. You’re also spending more money. Hiring a coordinator will give you the peace of mind of knowing that your wedding vision will go as planned without you having to do the work. 

Love for the industry
I LOVE helping others! When you can help a stressed-out family on one of the most important days of their life, it is the best feeling to know you can keep them stay calm and help them! Weddings are fun, stressful, beautiful, and exciting all at the same time. It is truly a dream job, and I have to pinch myself all the time that this is my life!

Lindsay's Reviews

Lindsay and Nicole deserve 10 stars!

“Lindsay and Nicole deserve 10 stars for the work they did for our wedding this past weekend! We worked with Lindsay to plan every detail of our wedding day and the whole day was pretty darn close to perfect!! I got so many compliments saying how smoothly the day ran and it’s all thanks to the work Lindsay put into re-working our timeline to be just right!! Lindsay helped keep everyone calm and also ran out to grab the wedding party food when there was a miscommunication for who was supposed to pick it up. Lindsay and Nicole brought my husband and I drinks and water on the dance floor so we never had to leave it and helped all our ideas and dreams come true. My whole family loved the Veil events team and I cannot recommend them enough to all our family, friends, and fellow KC brides!!!”

I’m so glad I worked with Lindsay!!!

“All brides should work with Veil Events!!! I planned my wedding by myself and was getting super overwhelmed. So, I googled “wedding consultant” and discovered Veil Events. I just did a 1-hour consult with Lindsay (which turned into 2 because she had a wealth of information … and didn’t charge me extra). She had prepared a guide for me ahead of the call and then we walked though my wedding timeline in detail. I told her my concerns about the heat and she recommended we give out fans. We did and it was a hit!!! She helped with pacing. It was a dream to have an expert improve my timeline… talking through all the details like cutting our late night pizza into small slices so it could go further, saving us money. She noted spots she thought would be rush and spots she thought we could streamline. I’m so glad I worked with Lindsay!!!”

Veil Events was wonderful to work with and I couldn’t of asked for a better experience

“Lindsay and her assistant Elisabeth were amazing! From Lindsay helping me plan every single detail to the day of Elisabeth making sure everything went according to plan! Veil events was wonderful to work with and I couldn’t of asked for a better experience!”

If you are a bride thinking about whether you need a wedding coordinator or not, the answer is YES and your answer is Veil Events!

“Veil Events was absolutely the best investment we made for our wedding. We hired Lindsay in August 2020 for our June 2022 wedding, and she was there for every step in the wedding planning process. She was full of great ideas, helpful suggestions, and useful insight at every meeting we had. She truly made my wedding day a dream come true. She always came prepared for every meeting and helped coordinate things from vendor meetings to budgeting to helping me with décor and choosing wedding colors. Lindsay and her team were essential for my wedding day. I felt so at ease knowing she had been with me at every step throughout the planning process, and she knew exactly what I envisioned when the wedding day came. And boy did she deliver! Lindsay’s team set up the reception space the morning of and it was so beautiful and exactly what I wanted. We received so many compliments from our guests throughout the day and we owe it all to Veil Events! The wedding day could not have been any smoother. While dancing, I accidentally tore my dress and Lindsay was right there with a sewing kit and was able to sew it back together! You don’t get this kind of service from just any wedding coordinator. She even saved us some leftover food and cake for us to snack on in our hotel room! Her experience, attention to detail, and genuine kindness are simply unmatched. I could go on and on about how amazing Veil Events is! If you are a bride thinking about whether you need a wedding coordinator or not, the answer is YES and your answer is Veil Events!”

If something went “wrong” on our wedding day, we had no clue and just had the most amount of fun!

“Lindsay & the Veil Events team, where to begin. They are truly the BEST. From the beginning planning stages to the actual wedding day, everything was executed with such professionalism and happiness. Not only did Lindsay take over basically all planning and decisions when I hit a mental wall but she also took care of us when our caterer backed out 4 months out. She’s the best wedding planner of all time and probably one of the nicest people I have ever met. So thankful for her and the amazing team she has built! If something went “wrong” on our wedding day, we had no clue and just had the most amount of fun. Veil Events can be thanked for that!!”

I had zero stress on my wedding day!

“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!!”

I can’t tell you how much we appreciated every part of the process!

“Veil Events was such a dream to work with! After meeting Lindsay in a chance encounter at work and attending the Veil Events Bridal show in June 2021, I couldn’t be more excited to book the Month Of Coordination Package for our upcoming Spring 2022 wedding. Early on, Lindsay helped create our timeline and introduced us to the My Wedding Planner Google Doc Spreadsheet, a tool that was so helpful to have on hand when communicating with vendors. With this meeting and every meeting thereafter, it truly felt like talking with a friend. Her genuine enthusiasm and willingness to entertain any and all of our questions was so greatly appreciated. On the day of, we were looking forward to working with Elisabeth and meeting our second coordinator. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot of the venue, we received the best surprise when Lindsay met us at our vehicle and let us know she would be apart of the whole day. Lindsay and Elisabeth were such a fun team to work with. Together they did a fantastic job keeping our timeline in check and we were so impressed by their attention to detail. We were so impressed by their collaboration and communication with the venue coordinator and other vendors to bring my decor and table design to life in such a beautiful way. I can’t tell you how much we appreciated every part of the process! From figuring out my complicated bustle, to managing a miscommunication situation with our final exit photo opportunity, Lindsay and Elisabeth truly advocated for our best day with professionalism and positive attitudes. So much credit is owed to Lindsay and Elisabeth for making this process so enjoyable and for making our perfect day come to life. This service is truly worth every penny.”

They are simply magic!

“Soon to be brides…. Seriously, hire Lindsay Kooser from Veil Events and have her bring her assistant Ellery because they are simply magic. I am sure I am not the only bride ever that thought “but do I really need to hire a wedding coordinator? Is it really worth the money?” Absolutely always say yes to these questions. I feel like I’m going to constantly struggle with words to really explain just how perfect our wedding day was and I 1000% owe it to everyone involved. Yes, I’m a complete control freak with high expectations and am overly observant with ridiculous standards for attention to detail… but, when you have the right people in your corner, this is all okay. Lindsay was with me along the way as I rushed to plan this beautiful wedding in less than 3 months, while constantly going back and forth about whether my dad would make it and if we should cancel and the emotions… all of the emotions. And she was patient. And kind. And never made me feel guilty for being a scatterbrained, indecisive mess. I wanted for nothing. She helped tremendously with vendor communication and she made me feel like the most important person in the world, which let’s be honest… who doesn’t want that on their wedding day. She and Ellery were calm and I can honestly say I had little to no stress on my wedding day. The cute little surprises were just the icing on the cake. I’m forever grateful to you both!”

HIRE A PLANNER, even if you don’t think you’ll need one!

“Lindsay was actually the very first person I hired, and good lord, I could’ve never predicted the pandemic that would follow and how thankful I’d be to have her throughout this journey. Planning a normal wedding is one thing, planning a wedding during a pandemic is another thing. Needless to say, she was worth every penny I spent and I’m convinced this wedding wouldn’t have happened without her. I’m an OCD planner by nature, but when it came down to wedding day/month, I know myself and I knew I was going to need help. There is no way I could’ve planned a wedding of this size on my own, and I’m so glad I didn’t even attempt. It would’ve been a nightmare and it truly would’ve ruined the planning process for me. Lindsey saved me so many times, in so many different ways. She made my wedding planning process so seamless from the very start. She kept me in line, she kept me on a timeline, and was so helpful when it came to vendors/contacts/etc. She is the best of the best and I wouldn’t think twice about booking her again! If there’s one thing I could recommend to you: HIRE A PLANNER, even if you don’t think you’ll need one!”
 
Aubrey Howe (Kale Kouture) & Taylor Schoenekase – 7/11/2020 – The Bardot, KCMO

It was the best decision we made.

“Lindsay was a dream to work with! She made the entire wedding planning process easy and stress free. Her support, kindness, and attention to detail were above and beyond. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and I credit Lindsay for this! The day was more beautiful than I could have imagined and everything went so smoothly–all thanks to Lindsay and Veil Events. I highly recommend anyone who is getting married to call Veil Events for help. You will not regret it!! It was the best decision we made.”

I could enjoy the day with my loved ones!

“I was one of those people who didn’t think I needed a coordinator because I’m typically a very organized person. I was so, so wrong about that and I’m so glad I hired Veil Events! Lindsay saved my sanity on my wedding day and so many times throughout the day I thought to myself “holy cow, without Lindsay that would have been such a disaster”. Without her, I’m pretty sure I would’ve lost the marriage certificate, half of the decor wouldn’t have been set up, tips wouldn’t have bene handed out to vendors, and we certainly wouldn’t have been on time. There are so many moving parts on the wedding day and she helped coordinate all of them so that I could just sit and enjoy the day with my loved ones. I also wouldn’t have eaten a piece of my wedding cake, which she thoughtfully boxed up and had waiting for us in our hotel room. She also has an awesome personality that is so fun to have around during the wedding day.”
 
Irene Pourladian & Mitchell Guenther – 8/28/2021 – The Hilton President, KCMO

Veil Events was so reliable, supportive, and organized.

“Hiring Veil Events to help me plan my wedding was one of the best decisions I made throughout the process! As soon as I hired them, we immediately had a meeting to talk through what decisions had already been made and what we need to focus on next. I felt supported throughout the entire process, and it was so nice to have someone telling me what to prioritize and what order to do things in. It was also extremely helpful that Lindsay was able to narrow down searches for me. Instead of spending hours and hours looking up vendors, Lindsay would ask what I was looking for and narrow down the search for me which saved so much time. It was so helpful having Lindsay take over vendor contact as well. She would call/email vendors for me and handle most of that communication so I didn’t have to. Veil Events also provided me with an extremely organized online planning document that was so helpful. All of my information was housed in one place, and my planner was always able to see what I was adding into the document, as well as add their own information. When it came time to wedding week/wedding day, I was extremely calm and not stressed at all. Lindsay and her team took care of everything for me- if anything went wrong, I still don’t know about it to this day! Everything was perfect and I was able to sit back and enjoy my day because of the work they did. Veil Events was so reliable, supportive, and organized, and I couldn’t have planned my wedding without them!!”

You won’t regret it for a second

“Our day would not have been as enjoyable if it weren’t for Veil Events. Lindsay and her team helped me with everything from contacting vendors, to setting up and tearing down at the venue. She even helped sew a bridesmaid’s dress when it ripped down the front and tie all the groomsmen’s bowties. Every big thing down to every detail Veil Events was there. I was able to enjoy our day carefree and live in the moment knowing everything was going to run smoothly. I was on the fence about hiring a coordinator because I’m a pretty organized person, but ultimately things pop up that you never plan for and Lindsay was there to take care of it all. If you want to guarantee the most perfect day, hire Veil Events. You won’t regret it for a second!!!!”
 
Zaina Mayer & Marcus Juracek – 5/30/2021 – White Iron Ridge, Smithville

Veil Events is absolutely amazing!!

“Veil Events is absolutely amazing!! Their entire team is so impressive and I can’t say enough good things about them and what they do. 
When I hired Veil Events I was about a year and a half out from my wedding date. We had an initial meeting where they gave me the Wedding Planning Guide to fill in all of my details and help me through the vendor planning process. It helped me to be able to identify areas that I needed to look into more before I was ready for the wedding. I honestly don’t know how brides do it without a month of coordinator. By the time that the wedding details started getting pretty stressful it was time for Lindsay to step in and start helping me out with different tasks. She was SO organized, which I loved and multiple vendors commented on. Every part of the day was planned down to the minute and I felt so at ease going into my wedding week. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly and I know that it is all thanks to Veil Events. Even my husband made multiple comments about how excellent she was and he doesn’t typically notice things like that! When I thought that they couldn’t be any better, they always had another incredible detail planned that amazed me. If you are looking for someone to help you with your wedding, look no further than Veil Events. They are simply the best and such a huge part of what made my wedding day so perfect!

Lindsay and her team are absolutely amazing!

“Lindsay and her team are absolutely amazing! I booked Veil Events about a year before our wedding because I had no idea how I was supposed to plan a wedding. After every meeting I had with Lindsay, I left feeling completely relieved and my mind was at ease. She threw out so many different ideas and made my vision come to life. She had an answer for every single question I had. The wedding planning guide that she provides is amazing and so helpful. I don’t know how many times I referred to it. She made our wedding day go as smooth as possible and it was so organized! She helped with our timeline (which is where I was struggling), making sure our decorations looked perfect so I didn’t have to worry about that, made sure I ate my lunch and was there to get me more food/water during pictures, communicated with our other vendors, helped the guys get ready, etc. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I could literally go on and on about how great she is. Hiring Lindsay for our wedding was truly the BEST decision we made. I couldn’t have done it without her. I would give 10 stars or more if I could! I would highly recommend Veil Events to newly engaged couples that need help planning their special day! You won’t be disappointed.

Thank you Veil Events for such a memorable experience

“Lindsay Kooser, owner/founder of Veil Events, went above and beyond expectations of what we were looking for with a Day of Coordinator. I am an Event Manager by profession so I could have pull everything together myself, but wanted to be able to be present in the day and not worry about anything. Lindsay & Kaylie did an impeccable job keeping everything in line, laughing with me, and transforming my vision into a reality. I could not be more grateful for the entire process- from receiving the Wedding Planning Guide to helping me decide between infinite options and helping me walk down the aisle. Despite the pandemic this year, my husband (that is crazy to say!) and I knew we were going to be married as planned and Lindsay was so supportive through the entire process. It was the perfect day and beyond our wildest dreams! Thank you Veil Events for such a memorable experience.
 
Casey Watson & Matt Miller – 9.26.2020 – The Fields at Eighteen Ninety, KCMO

Thank you Veil Events Team!

“Veil Events was available, flexible and on-time throughout our planning months! They listened and carried out our wishes & expectations beautifully the day of!! They worked with our vendors and provided referrals to high quality vendors where we needed guidance. Several vendors commented, how they appreciated the communication. It made the day run smoothly!! Timeline management leading up to our big day as well as Day Of management was calm, complete and came together beautifully!! Nothing was missed or left out. I could have done many of these tasks myself, but not all at once! This choice to hire a coordinator was one of the best things we did. Lindsay, orchestrated the hours of our wedding day with an amazing professional and personal touch! I especially appreciated how attentive she was to me personally; popping in on me frequently to check in and let me know how set up was going. All the while keeping 10 things going at once while us girls enjoyed some pampering. Our venue said their clean up & checkout was superb. It was a relief to have Veil Events handle so many parts we needed to put in trustworthy hands. Thank you Veil Events Team!”

I wish I could give Veil Events 10 stars!

“Lindsay from Veil Events is AMAZING! I can’t imagine the day without her help! All of her hard work made the day go so smoothly. Because of her, I was able to enjoy the day and I wasn’t stressed or worried at all! She thought of all the little details, took care of the other vendors, helped with set up, timeline and the list goes on! She even decorated the hotel that evening and made sure we had left over food and cake (which was such a nice surprise)! I can’t express enough how great she was! She was so helpful leading up to the day and kept me calm and provided recommendations during covid. I wish I could give Veil Events 10 stars!”
 
Amanda Sullivan & Matt Hanrahan – 8/21/20 – KCMO 

Veil Events is nothing short of AMAZING!

“Veil Events is nothing short of AMAZING! I hired Lindsay for month of coordination and additional decoration assistance. From our first meeting, to rehearsal, to decorating the venue, to making sure everyone was on schedule, and up until send-off, everything was perfect! Lindsay and her team did everything possible to make the planning process, and wedding day run as smoothly as possible! She never hesitated to help when I needed it and went above and beyond with my requests. She has such a creative mind and a positive attitude about everything, that makes planning even more fun! I would recommend Veil Events to anyone and everyone! My favorite part of booking with Veil Events is how once the wedding day rolled around, everything was out of my hands and into Lindsay’s and me and my family were able to just enjoy and take in every moment of the day. She really wants the best for every one of her brides and I can’t thank her enough for helping to make my big day, the best day ever!”
