“I’ve had the pleasure to work with Kristin on three large corporate events for my company, including a summer outing and holiday party, each for over 100 employees and their family members. She’s professional, organized and incredibly personable! Kristin and Swank Events were an invaluable resource not only for sourcing vendors and managing the relationship for the life-cycle of planning, but also in coordinating the small details so each event has truly lived up to my vision. She has gone above and beyond in making sure each event went smoothly and righting any problems practically before they’ve arisen. We’ve already secured her for this year’s summer outing and I cannot recommend her enough for corporate events. Kristin has consistently covered every base and even helped us arrange a company gift to employees. Without her help I would not have been able to relax and enjoy the outings.” – Lauren T.
“Swank Events coordinated and planned our summer corporate outing for 90 people, including employees, significant others, and families. Kristin, the owner, was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was always available to discuss any of the event details, regardless what other events she was handling. For a corporate event, our budget was limited and after receiving a very high catering quote, Kristin quickly pursued quotes from 3 other vendors until someone matched our price point. This is a timely and tedious process, but Kristin worked through it and provided amazing results. In addition, Kristin has fantastic creative vision! With her Swank Events team, they were able to turn a bland outdoor tent into a beautiful setting with minimal decorations, such as flowers and lanterns. It was simply stunning. Kristin and her team also attended our event. From arriving early to set up and leaving late to clean up, they always had a positive, friendly, and professional attitude. No task was too small for them. I highly recommend working with Swank Events for your next corporate event!” – Nicole D.
“My husband and I worked with Betsy for our 200 person outdoor wedding in June 2016, and couldn’t be happier! I consider myself a very organized person and plan events as a part of my own job, but Betsy thought of so many things that never crossed my mind. We didn’t get married at a wedding venue and had to do everything ourselves, and I know that our wedding wouldn’t have gone smoothly without Betsy. She helped make sure that the last two months before our wedding were a breeze. She’s incredibly smart, organized and an absolute dream to work with. Every element of our wedding went off without a hitch, and this was in large part because of Betsy and the Swank team. I have already recommended her to all of our friends getting married this year, and couldn’t recommend them more to all of you!” – Taylor G.
“I am a vendor who does custom work and decorative lighting for events in and around Boston. We were hired by Kristin to install some bistro lights and ambient lighting at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center for a wedding celebration. Kristin was very organized and easy to work with. The entire installation went very smoothly for all the vendors because she has a concise concept of everyone’s needs in terms of space and time to accomplish their responsibilities. The project we worked with her on was fairly high complexity as the Cambridge multicultural Arts Center is a “blank canvas” space and everything from tables and seating, to catering equipment, bar appointments, table linens, band, music, sound system, decorative elements, floral and tabletop decor needs to be brought in and installed on the day of the event. This means there are a lot of people working at the same time in the same space to move large amounts of equipment and to set it up. We had a lovely, low stress installation on a happy job site. Every member of every vendors team was cheerful and friendly. It is rare that events of this type go as smoothly as they did that day, and when they do it is because the planner is a great communicator who is organized and who knows what to expect in all aspects of the project. We are always very very appreciative when a planner or company is this capable and takes such care with every member of the team she has assembled for her clients. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for assistance with their special occasions and will definitely always give her projects preference in our calendar since I know we can rely on tasteful requests and careful support in delivering the best possible installation we can offer. We love what we do and projects like hers are the perfect example of why.” – Stephanie C.
