Here is what some of our past clients have been talking about…………….

Maureen W. – September 2020
Kim and her husband did an amazing job!! They executed the brides vision when it came to placement of our tent for a September back yard wedding. Kim provided guidance and cost efficiency that helped us create an amazing backyard ceremony in the midst of a pandemic!! We practiced social distancing yet still felt the intimacy!! Kim is an amazing wedding coordinator as well. Sassy and sweet and can keep a LARGE wedding party in line and on time! She’s a blessing to the MOB and the Bride! I highly recommend this husband wife duo! Thanks Kim can’t wait to work with you on our next one!! Best in the Business!

Scott & Lori   –  May 2014

“Kim and Jimmy, I can’t say thank you enough – you all helped make our day very special.  Everything ran so smoothly, we couldn’t have done it without you!”


TJ & Brooke    –  June 2014

“Kim, I cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding a success.  I definitely believe that hiring you was one of the best decisions I made while wedding planning.  It truly shows how much you care about your brides and their special day. Kim was fabulous! She helped wedding go smoothly and kept me from worrying about the small details.  I would definitely recommend your services to any future bride.”


Brad & Sarah   – December 2018

“Kim was so easy to work with & helped bring our decor for our wedding reception to the next level! The draping & dance floor really added the wow factor to our reception space and we received so many compliments that the building had never looked that good. Thanks again Kim!!”


Josh & Lauren     –    July 2015

“Hiring Kim was the best money spent for my wedding!  Kim was absolutely wonderful! My mom and I truly believe that Kim was easily the best decision we made about my wedding planning process! And my mom still brings up the fact that out of everything we spent money on for a wedding of over 200 guests, having her was well worth it and the best money we spent. Kim was very positive and responsive and she even met with me and my family on several occasions to go over details. I was so happy I had her and Kayla to help keep things organized and going smoothly throughout our wedding weekend. They bent over backwards to make our wedding perfect for us! It was flawless and I cannot describe how thankful I am that I had them there to help set up, decorate, direct guests/bridal party, explain everything to us and coordinate with our vendors. Kim sent me a schedule in advanced to send out to my bridal party, which was extremely helpful! She let me “hide” in her car and stay in the AC before the ceremony started (it was 91 degrees and our ceremony was outdoors) and then let me cool down in there before the reception. She is fabulous at what she does and I HIGHLY recommend her for wedding planning/ wedding rentals. She helped with things you wouldn’t even think about and had all the details taken care of. I was able to actually enjoy my wedding day thanks to Kim and Kayla! Thanks again for everything! ”


Luke & Kayla   –  December 2015

“Kim Thank you sooooo much for everything! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my wedding.  It’s fabulous and I have no clue what I would have done without you!”


Anna   –   October 2013

“Kim and her team at Special Events were so easy to work with. She was very responsive and helpful in helping me make the right decisions for our event. Our wedding was outside so we were balancing many variables (including weather!) and she was willing to help us update our order even a few days before the event. She is also very responsive and thorough with communication which made the process much easier. The tent looked beautiful!”



“Kim was so very helpful and did all I asked of her. I will use her and her rentals again!”


Garen & Katie     –  October 2013

“When planning a wedding you hear so much advice from so many different people. Some of it is helpful and some of it just gives you more anxiety. Here is my advice to all future brides or anyone planning a party. Having a “day of” planner was never up for discussion after we decided to get married in Kentucky. A friend of mine had used Kim Gaunce as her planner for her wedding and she was very pleased so when I was home at Christmas we met and I knew asking her to help would be a great decision. Living in Florida and planning a wedding in KY definitely made things more challenging at times but having Kim on my team made things so much less stressful. She was always there when I needed an unbiased opinion whether I was emailing her an idea or texting a picture she was so quick to respond.

I was afraid the days leading up to the wedding were going to be insane but working with Kim, they were actually enjoyable. I’ve never met a more organized person in my life and someone who liked schedules as much as me. The day of our wedding I was cool, calm and collected and I have Kim to thank for that. I didn’t stress once over anything. If there was a problem, I never knew about it which was great because I trusted her with everything. The day after the wedding my mom and I were discussing how wonderful everything was and she said to me, “Kim was the best money spent for your wedding.” I couldn’t agree more. You can have the most lavish over the top wedding but if you don’t have a great person behind the scenes you’re bound to have issues. I would recommend Kim with Special Events to everyone. I can’t sing enough praises:) Love you Kim!”


Ryan & Ann- Marie     –  December 2013

“Kim and her assistant, Layne, were extremely helpful through the wedding planning process. Kim had expertise knowledge on all aspects of the wedding. She was easily available through text message or e-mail to answer all last minute questions. Kim also advised the wedding planning process keeping in mind appropriate wedding etiquette. She offered ideas and had examples of programs, invitations, table numbers, and so much more. In addition, I was able to rent white candelabras which were hard to find elsewhere and an elegant easel to display my seating chart.

While everything I listed above was extremely important to planning my special day, she was even more valuable on the day of, for event coordinating. She prepared timelines and kept my photographer on a timeline. She was the “go-to” person to ensure everything went smoothly. She made necessary adjustments when needed and most of all she kept everyone calm and collected! They set up the reception venue so that my family could spend the morning with me while I was getting ready. Layne assembled my candy table and it looked fabulous! Kim and Layne were a very important part of my day!”


Justin & Ashley  –  October 2014

“Kim is such a professional and wonderful to work with. She is on top of everything! All of our guests loved how our wedding and ceremony flowed throughout the evening – everything was seamless and Kim was responsible for all of that. Thank you, Kim!”


Sean & Nikki    –  June 2015

Kim with Special Events was amazing! She was my wedding planner and I used them for all my rental needs too. She was so organized and helpful in every step. She was always available and got back to me super quick, even on little things that (in hindsight) prob weren’t that big of a deal :). She helped me stay on track and on a good timeline too. Especially the wedding day, we had pouring rain all day until 1 hour before the wedding, and she made all my outside visions sill work in such a short time! She took all the stress off me and I would definitely hire her for my planner and them for rentals all over again!! Couldn’t have asked for a better planner! Thank you Kim and everyone at Special events for making my day so amazing and stress free (even with all the weather issues and everything else that day! :)”


Brian & Leann   –  April 2014

“Special Events did a great job at our wedding. All the rental equipment arrived on time and was in great condition and really made our wedding look special.

Kim Gaunce did a wonderful job coordinating all the events of the day and made sure all the vendors were on time and knew the plan. Her services really took a load off us the week of the wedding. We were able to enjoy our day and not have to worry about all the little details. Kim was really flexible and changed some of the itinerary to make sure the day was perfect for us. I would highly recommend her services!”

Carla  (Leanns Mom)- April 2014

“Kim at Special Events was the perfect person to help me with my daughters wedding. Half way through the planning process I knew I needed professional planning help. Most of our vendors were selected at that point but it was all the little details that we had questions about.
I had used Special Events for larger fundraising events so I knew to call on Kim for rental needs. Seeing she was an accredited wedding coordinator made Kim the perfect choice for our needs the day of the wedding too.
The wedding events ran flawlessly and were stress-free! There is no way that would have happened without Special Events and Kim Gaunce being there for every detail!”


Craig  &  Renee    –  August 2015

“We were just at a wedding this past weekend and I want to say Thanks!  You made our wedding exactly perfect for US.  We couldn’t have asked for a better day!  Thank you so much!”


Curtis & Becca    – August 2015

“From the engagement to the very last moment on the wedding day Kim was positive, professional, calming and exceptionally organized. As a typical Type A personality it is difficult for me to relinquish control and trust others to get the job done, but Kim met and exceeded every expectation and helped make our special day everything we dreamed it would be!
Special Event’s staff was friendly and very easy to work with! Their rentals were clean and all in great condition! I can’t say enough nice things about this company & I would highly recommend Kim & Special Events to everyone!”


Drew & Ashley –  June 2011

“Kim, We LOVE you, thank you for being part of our day!”


Allison  –  October 2017

Kim was great with working with us for planning our wedding! Super flexible with making changes and helped make our wedding beautiful!


Caoimhin & Danielle  –  May 2016

Kim was incredibly helpful, made great suggestions and worked with our budget and vision for our special day to make it everything we could have wanted.


Debbie    –  May 2016

“This is the second wedding Kim has done for our family. I would use her company again and again without hesitation! She is prompt, courteous, and does what she says she will do. She’s the best!”



“Kim was absolutely amazing. She is such a happy, positive person it made any stress that I was having go away. Her team was wonderful to work with, we even gave a couple of the team hugs good bye! The pricing was great as well. I will in the future always use Special Events for rental needs.”



“Just as it was in 2012 when we used your company, our conversation today was
as though we were best friends and that’s why we have returned to your
company for this special wedding event.”


Donna, Mother of the Bride     –   September 20

“I can’t say enough about the great service we received from Kim and her team at I Do Events of Special Events out of Lexington KY. She came with her assistant to see the farm and sat with bride and mom at the site to offer her suggestions. We changed our minds about the set up several times over the next couple of months and she was always ready to accommodate. The night before the tent and tables were coming rain chances increased and we decided on a larger tent. They actually unpacked the truck the next morning to meet our request. They also collaborated well with our caterer. Kim came with the set up crew to oversee the assembly of tent, lights, etc and they were all just as great as Kim. Just having positive folks around when I was a bit stressed about everything coming together was worth so much to me. Kim never tried to push any services but just explained what they offered and was happy to serve in whatever plan we wanted. Thanks so much!!”
Donna-Mother of the Bride



“Kim is energetic and fun. She is very knowledgeable and helpful. Rental totals were flexible right until the truck was loaded for delivery! Would definitely use their services again.”


Melissa    –  June 2015

“Kim was an absolute blessing to work with. I needed to book a tent early in the wedding planning process and she was very helpful and knowledgeable with recommendations on tent size, layout, etc. We were very fortunate the weather cooperated and the tent was able to go up several days before our wedding (which was a huge perk of going with Special Events), allowing us plenty of time to decorate and situate everything. Kim’s team is the best!!”


Gwen  –  May 2015

“Kim was great to work with and responsive to all my questions. Chairs were great quality for good price.”


Annual Corporate Client

“Year after year, the service is always excellent!”


Marian   –   November 2014

“Kim made it very easy – to make selections from a myriad of choices. She was flexible, responsive and open to questions. Her proposed layouts were very helpful in helping us think about how the tent would look and the event would flow.”


Karen  –  August 2014

“From our very first phone call to the last email a few days before the wedding, Kim was fantastic! She gave us exactly what we wanted even after we changed several things because of weather and larger numbers and made sure everything was to our satisfaction at set up! The whole experience was so less stressful due to Kim’s professionalism, she had absolutely everything under control, we would use them again anytime!”


Barbara   –   July 2014

“I described to Kim Gaunce what I was needing and I rented tables, chairs and tents from Special Events. Kim was very easy to work with. There were several style selections offered. Everything was delivered and picked up in a timely manner. I was asked by one of the guest for contact info and I gladly gave it to her.”



Kim G. and crew are awesome! They set up tents in hot humid conditions and were pleasant and helpful the whole time. They even changed some of the tent support ties to accommodate our wishes. Our daughter’s wedding was beautiful. Thank you Kim and Special Events!


Rheagan   –   October 2013

“Special Events not only made my special day wonderful, but the planning ahead of time so stress free! They were so easy to contact and deal with, I would most definitely recommend and use them again!”


Sara  –  July 2013

“Kim with Special Events KY was SO helpful! I had looked at several places for wedding rentals and was so glad I went with Special Events KY! She made me feel very confident in using them! We rented our dance floor from them and it was such a beautiful dance floor! Working with Kim up to the wedding was so easy and stress-free! She was so helpful in emailing me and getting me any information I needed. They did an impeccable job of working with our vendors, delivering the dance floor and picking it up. I would HIGHLY recommend Special Events KY!!”


“I called Kim at Special Events, last minute, for a 40×20 tent. She was the 4th vendor I called, as all the others were booked. She had a tent available, and delivered and set it up same day! The young men who delivered it were professional and courteous, and they set it up quickly and efficiently. Same with tear-down. We received many compliments from guests when it started raining! I’m so grateful for Special Event’s quick and professional service. I would highly recommend them for your event!”
