Lisa Marie Chimento
Marketing Director and Lead Wedding Planner
Lisa Marie went above and beyond her duties in her contract to make the wedding process seamless. She took away any stress we had concerning our big day and made sure we knew that she was available to us for anything we needed. Lisa Marie met with us as frequently as we wanted to go over details and our schedule and was willing to travel wherever necessary to meet with us. She was happy and optimistic and very thorough with her notes and keeping an organized schedule. We have credited her with the beautiful calm and relaxation we felt on our wedding day-which is how it should always feel (but for most weddings it isn't like this!) We have told all of our family and friends that we were so happy with how our wedding day went, all because of her! We recommend her to everyone!

To anyone who asks me about our wedding, I say with full confidence that if it wasn't for you, our day would not have been the dream-come-true that it was. I knew from my very first phone call with you that there was NO WAY I would move forward with planning this wedding without you. Through the phone, the perfectionist in me immediately recognized the perfectionist in you, and I knew right then that you were the one I needed by my side to help me through this process that was consuming me with intimidation and anxiety.
To say that you exceeded all expectations that I had, and that my parents had, is an understatement. In the many months, days, and hours leading up to our day, you ran things like the total boss lady that you are. Your meticulous attention to detail, your professionalism, and your ability to juggle all my wants and needs - while also managing the sensitivities related to my unique family dynamic - make you all-deserving of a Wedding Planner Academy Award. From beginning to end of the planning process, you made me feel so comfortable and confident.
Above all that, what shined through the most about you during our time working together is your sincere passion for this business and for the work you do. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for everything. Thank you for your gigantic contributions to the happiest memory of our lives. I will be forever grateful to you.
"My wife and I were married in downtown Philadelphia in August 2019, and our wedding would not have been as picture perfect as it was without the incredible support of Lisa Marie at Kaleidoscope Weddings. We first met Lisa Marie when she was working as the coordinator of our Cousin’s wedding. She coordinated all of her team members so well, and orchestrated such an amazing evening that we knew that night that we wanted to use her as our planner. Lisa Marie has a ton of great contacts with different vendors and gave us a bunch of amazing recommendations. This helped narrow down our choices to only top-notch professionals, they were all amazing. She was there every step of the way during our planning process to ensure our vision for that day was possible. When our big day finally came, it was so well planned and executed that we really just got to spend the entire night enjoying ourselves, and never had to worry about a thing. Lisa Marie made sure everything progressed exactly the way we wanted and never missed a beat. I couldn’t recommend her more HIGHLY, she is an absolute pleasure to work with."
"The best decision we made during wedding planning was hiring Lisa Marie and her team to help up plan the best day ever! From the very beginning she guided us through stressful decisions and organized the day of events perfectly. When one of our bus driver decided not to show to transport guests, Lisa Marie and her team figured everything out, got all of our guests to the church on time without us even knowing there was an issue! My family, bridesmaids (and groomsmen!) all agreed she was the best planner they’ve ever experienced. She is an absolute pro and made our wedding day stress free. When my wedding dress bustle broke on the dance floor? Lisa Marie was there to MacGyver a new bustle in a few minutes with her Mary Poppins bag of wedding necessities. HIGHLY recommend to every bride, especially if you are on the fence of whether or not to hire a planner!"
"I can't tell you how many times after our wedding my husband and I have said to each other, "Thank goodness for Lisa Marie!" 10? 50? Seriously, if there is one thing you need to do NOW during your wedding planning, it's to hire Kaleidoscope. When I was first engaged, my then-fiance and I were convinced that we did not need any help. I had been in six weddings and we're both extremely organized and on top of our stuff - we thought we had everything down. How wrong we were. Once we got to the 8-month mark, we quickly realized that there were about million things we needed to take care of on the wedding day, and if we didn't get help, there would be trouble. We spoke with a few coordinators, but really clicked quickly with the ladies at Kaleidoscope. Lisa Marie was fantastic from our first conversation to even today - she has a great personality for wedding planning where she can be fun but also get down to business. She is incredibly responsive and knowledgeable - I probably asked her more than 200 questions before the wedding and she answered all of them promptly and as a true wedding expert. I always felt like I was in great hands and that Lisa Marie would take care of anything that came her way - and she truly did during our wedding! There were a couple things that happened outside our control at the wedding - one of them being sudden pouring rain during our outdoor ceremony! - and she handled each situation with such command and calm. Lisa Marie took amazing care of me and my husband during the wedding day, and she also even made sure our parents and close friends were having a good time and had everything they needed. She was SUCH a godsend throughout the entire day. I almost felt like a guest at my own wedding - I was able to have a wonderful time and not worry about a thing! Two of my engaged friends came up to me during our after-wedding brunch and told me how much they need "a Lisa Marie!" I happily passed along her information! Thanks so much, Lisa Marie!"
"We could not have gotten married without Lisa Marie, Jen and her team at Kaleidoscope!! From the first phone call in March 2019 to our wedding day on October 5, 2019, Lisa Marie was so responsive, in tune with our wedding and available to touch base on every detail. The day of went SO smoothly because of their planning, organization and attention to detail. I highly recommend the Kaleidoscope team for your wedding!!!!"

"We worked with Lisa for our wedding and she and her team made a huge difference in our day! After booking all of our vendors, I realized that day-of I was going to be the only realistic point of contact for everyone. I called Lisa and she took over coordinating and saved me a ton of stress. She was super easy to work with and made the day a breeze. The best money we spent on a vendor was hiring Kaleidoscope."

"Words cannot express my gratitude toward Lisa Marie and the entire Kaleidoscope Solutions team for making our May 19th 2018 wedding the most incredible day ever. We brought on Lisa Marie 6 months before the event when we realized the details and logistics of a 250 person event in downtown Philadelphia were far beyond our expertise. Lisa Marie helped us find the best and most reliable vendors for flowers, invitations, transportation, makeup, etc. Aside from the pouring rain, I was stress free on my wedding day thanks to Lisa Marie & team. They had every detailed covered, so that my husband and I and our families and bridal party could enjoy every minute of the day. I would highly suggest Kaleidoscope Solutions - they are extremely well-respected in Philadelphia and are relatively affordable in comparison to other planners offering similar levels of service. You will not regret using Lisa Marie and Kaleidoscope Solutions for your dream day!"
