Thank you notes

​"As if planning a weekend getaway, in March I decided I could and would have the time to plan a wedding in June. A wedding, which, day by day, grew in intricacy. The vision manifested, and there I was sitting with a long list. The top of it, find someone I could trust to help with the rest.
Kendra quickly found the time to meet, lay out options, and give her honest advice.
Deciding on utilizing her expertise the weeks before and day of the the wedding, the weight I needed relieved, was lifted. The day of the wedding, I didn’t have to bat a lash. 
Kendra is intuitive, savvy, professional, poised, and willing to do whatever it takes. When time permits, she dropped what she was doing to fit into my schedule. Kendra is the planner you are looking for. "
- Ryan, Groom


We couldn't have done it without you! You have been such an integral partner in this process. Thank you for the sweat, blood, and tears you have put into making our special day extra special. Our hearts are full of gratitude"

-Crosby and Jon, Grooms



"John and I want to thank you so much. Everyone had the BEST time at the wedding and were so impressed by all the work you did. Honestly, it was a dream. The whole weekend was so relaxed and easy and exactly what we wanted it to be, so thank you so much!"

-Colby, Bride

"Dear Kendra,

Where to even begin? You are truly amazing! From the very beginning to the final execution of the most perfect wedding, you were truly amazing. You are professional, yet personal and I really felt that you made my vision come to life! I also can't tell you how much I enjoyed the time we spent together planning (and wine drinking). I'm so lucky to call you my friend and feel very fortunate that I was able to have you as my wedding planner!" 

Love, Tessa F. - Bride


"I don't think we will ever be so lucky to attend a wedding as beautiful and thought out again...and we are not just saying that because it was our's. Every flower, every detail, every decoration was so unexpected and lovely. Everyone who attended continues to talk about how lovely is was and the rehearsal dinner was so incredible as well! Thank you so so so much for going so far above and beyond and beyond for our wedding. We could not be more grateful for all your team did for us! 

Love, Karissa and Kelly 

-Bride and Groom, Jackson Wyoming


"I just wanted to say THANK YOU for everything! You were such a wonderful, easy person to work with. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous! You did such a wonderful job! I sincerely hope I have the chance to work with you again in the future!"

"I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful job you did at the Snake River Ranch for Chutney and Steve's wedding!  It was beautiful!  You also did a awesome job reorganizing when it started pouring rain - it still looked amazing!

Everyone had such a great time and was so complimentary about the venue!  The tent decorating was stunning!  Thanks for your attention to detail - it was noticed and so appreciated!

Thank you, again!  It was so much fun and magical of all of us!"


- Kim H - Mother of the Bride


Thank you Kendra!

It brought tears to my eyes thinking that our connection has been completed – and I must say in a way that was magical for everyone that attended the events.  

You captured the beauty way more than any of us ever imagined.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts we will live with the memory of a Jackson Hole wedding by Simply Grand.

It was a magazine wedding that our friends are living and re-living through the images that were captured at the wedding.  You should be proud of yourself because we are so proud of YOU!!

Thank you Kendra – you are AMAZING and we love you like family!!



Patty  - Mother of the Bride


"Thank you, Kendra for all of the wonderful services you provided us! I can't express how much it meant to me to know that you had everything under control. We "guys" know little about the planning and infinite number of important details it takes to make a wedding a truly special and magical event as you did. Under normal circumstances, my lovly wife would have helped compensate for this "father of the bride" deficiancy. I am most appreciative of your exertise and more importantly, your friendship. Thank you, thank you."

- Todd R., Father of the Bride


"If you’re planning a wedding, the first person to get in touch with is Kendra Hobson of Simply Grand Weddings and Events. From the minute I met her, I knew I was in very good hands with Kendra. She is extremely knowledgeable, organized, and efficient. Furthermore, her openness, warmth, and energy meant that the other vendors enjoyed working with her as much as my family and I did. She took care of the details—from sun parasols to shuttle schedules—that I didn’t have the time to take care of, or simply forgot about, so that I could enjoy my wedding day. Most importantly, Kendra was always available via phone or email if I needed to talk to her about anything related to the wedding. She made planning a destination wedding in Wyoming easy. She also made my wedding a dream come true."   

- ​Cecily P, Bride

​"Thank-you for all you did for Denise and Matt's wedding, you are very good at your job and it was such a relief for the Mother of the Bride! When I couldn't sleep (the whole week of the wedding) I would just think to myself "Kendra will be there and see that it gets done', and then I would sleep. Thank-you, Thank-you So Much, I would recommend you to every bride!"

​ - Veronica Widdoss, Mother of the Bride
