Reviews From Our Clients
Kelsie was our wedding coordinator and she was an absolute pleasure to have at our wedding, as well as her assistant . Heart For Hospitality was on the preferred vendor list from the Lakehouse San Marcos and we are very glad we chose them. From emails to texts, she is very responsive and professional. She did our welcome sign, seating chart, dessert bar item tags and table numbers. They came to my hotel room when I was getting ready to pick up reception items which they also brought back to our room at the end of the night. She came for our rehearsal practice the evening before and made sure everyone knew their places and felt at ease. Kelsie even went out of her way to bustle my dress for the reception, for which I am very grateful. The whole day was stress free because of them. Thank you!
Kelsie and Lori made all my wedding day florals and details come to life. I’m in complete awe of the floral art that was on display at my wedding. They made my princess fairy tale wedding dreams come true with the absolute perfect color combinations and the most exquisite display of florals I’ve ever seen. I feel so incredibly blessed to have worked with such an extraordinary small business that makes you feel like family.
Erin is an absolute joy to work with. She is incredibly friendly, energetic, and experienced. We connected from the moment we had our first phone call and I felt she truly understood my wedding vision and budget. My wedding was in May 2021, so there was a frightful period where I thought my original venue may not be open by our wedding date due to COVID. Erin helped me research alternative venues and reached out to a few of them to check their availability. Luckily, my original venue re-opened in time, so we were able to have our wedding there. Erin attended the tasting with my now husband and I which was very helpful as she asked the venue coordinator questions my husband and I would have never thought to ask. Erin created a timeline for the day of the wedding and reached out to all vendors prior to the wedding day to share contact info and collect their insurance. The day of the wedding, Erin was on top of it, making sure all vendors arrived on time, knew what was expected of them, and she and her assistant placed all the additional decorations I had brought. Erin also assisted the photographer in gathering people we needed and making sure we were doing good on time. Most importantly, Erin was always reachable the day of the wedding, would check in on me, and was calm to help offset my stress. At the end of the night, Erin and her assistant packed up all the decorations/cards and helped clean up the Bridal Suite, allowing me to dance the night away with my husband, family, and friends then easily swing by the Bridal Suite to pick up my bags. There were a few decorations I wasn’t able to find right away the days following the wedding as I wasn’t sure which box they were packed away in. I texted Erin and she responded immediately and knew exactly where she had packed them so I could easily find them. I was very impressed with Erin and her assistant and would HIGHLY recommend Heart for Hospitality.
Using Heart for Hospitality for our wedding was the best decision we could have made. They are ultimately a one stop shop & made every aspect of the wedding stress free & gorgeous. They provided day of coordinating, floral design, reception/ceremony styling, and so much more. My husband and I did not have to lift a finger day of the wedding, which allowed us to thoroughly enjoy our day! In the months leading up to the wedding they provided multiple meetings and mock ups to discuss ideas and make sure they caught my vision for what I wanted. They come armed with endless ideas and even more decor options to use for the wedding. And if there was something they didn't have, they made sure they had it!
I cannot rant and rave about Heart for Hospitality enough. I was completely blown away by their thoroughness, professionalism, and generosity! I HIGHLY recommend using Heart For Hospitality for any event that needs planning. I know my wedding won't be the last event I have them plan and style!!!
We so appreciate your can-do attitude and willingness to do whatever it took to make the day run smoothly. You guys were the hardest working vendor at the wedding and didn’t leave until all was taken care of. Love that this is a family business; everyone pitches in to ensure a successful event and the fees are reasonable. The cathedral arch rental piece was the perfect ceremony backdrop. Thank you for making sure this was available to us, and for helping make the day special.

We love when Heart For Hospitality helps with our events for our young adult ministry. They are always able to bring our events to the next level and never hesitate to bend over backwards to make sure everything runs smoothly. Our ministry is so grateful to work with people who love the Lord, have amazing attitudes and are so fun to work with! We can't say enough amazing things about their work. Highly recommend them for any ministry party or event! Thank you again for helping us with our travel themed Christmas Ball!
I could not imagine planning and coordinating my wedding without Heart for Hospitality! They made the process so much easier. My fiance and I were both busy with work and school so they took so much off our plate. They gave me a personalized timeline on what and when things need to be done in the planning process which was super helpful. They are very good at making your vision come true. I told them the few things here and there that I wanted, but the setup and decor turned out way better than I could have imagined! I didn't use them for flowers because we had a family friend do it for free, but if I didn't have that option, I would definitely have used them for floral design. The arrangements I've seen of theirs are beautiful! They made the day of so easy and flow so well. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!
I was searching for someone who could help decorate my wedding- both the ceremony and reception ball room. I didn't really have any decor yet and I didn't have a clue of how I could pull off decorating a wedding on my own. It was only a month and half out from the wedding and I was referred to Heart for Hospitality from my best friend who was also working with them for her upcoming wedding. I simply explained the theme I was going for, and they took that vision and created something more beautiful than I could have EVER thought of by myself! Lori and Kelsie already had a multitude of supplies and decor that they used in decorating, which made it so much easier and cost efficient. They communicated with me very well- I never felt like they left me hanging. Their team worked speedily on the day of, both setting up and tearing down. Without the help of Heart for Hospitality my wedding would not have been the same. The touch they added was pure perfection and they completely transformed my entire wedding into something so beautiful.

We are very happy to be writing this recommendation on behalf of the entire Heart for Hospitality team. Over the course of the last ten months, this group of talented, committed, and genuinely caring individuals made the planning of our wedding an experience that was more enjoyable than demanding, more fun than tiresome, and more joyous than we could have ever imagined possible.
Working with Kelsie, specifically, in the days leading up to the event reduced our nervousness because she has a calming, grounded energy and a level of experience that became
increasingly evident as we confronted various, expected challenges. On the day of the wedding, Kelsie and her sister Erin, who is equally gifted, inter-personally skillful, and gentle with all manner of people, made it possible for us simply to celebrate. We were never put in the position to make decisions, to problem-solve, or to take care of “business.”
We have, sadly, had so many friends and family members share about the “wedding experience” in such negative terms, comments such as: “Just get through it!” “Bet you can’t wait till it’s over” and “Putting on a wedding was worse than giving birth!” We absolutely can not relate to such sentiments, and I believe we owe that fact to Heart for Hospitality
Ryan and Megan Rammel
Heart For Hospitality made getting married and planning a wedding the best experience of our lives! We picked a location and they did the rest. Literally, we just picked the location and they did everything from the set up, florals, color arrangements, coordinating, to the tear down! They provided all their rentals, equipment, contacts for additional vendors and they helped plan for things we didn't even think of. They even styled the entire wedding! Most people say planning a wedding is stressful. Not with Heart For Hospitality! From start to finish they made the entire process simple, stress free and fun! We were able to focus on enjoying our engagement and wedding planning, thanks to them! The moment we gave them our budget they were sure to do everything they could to create the most amazing day without breaking our bank! The best part about working with Kelsie, Lori, Donald, Kylie and their team was that they made us feel like a part of the family. That's Heart For Hospitality!
Planning a wedding wouldn't be the same without Heart For Hospitality!!! Seriously I'm not kidding, Ryan and I have saved up for our big day and the Falks have seriously made it more than possible to have a beautiful wedding within (actually less) than our budget!!! From rentals, coordinating, planning, vendor recommendations, styling, set up, tear down, you name it, they do it all and all for within your budget!! Both of us, hands down will recommend their services over anyone elses!! I know we tell you all the time, but thank you so much for all you've done, you saved us!!!!!
I seriously can't thank these ladies enough. My baby shower was more than I imagined it to be. It was PERFECT. I can't wait for them to put my dream wedding together. I thank God for putting such beautiful women in my life. We recently welcomed our beautiful 8 pounds 2 ounce baby boy on November 19. So life can't get any better than this.. Can't wait to see you ladies again ♥.. Thank you ♥
More than an amazing job!! Kelsie went above and beyond when it came to decorating mine and my wife's wedding. It was more than I could of ever done myself. Thank you so much for all your hard work and the time you took for us! Can't wait to have another celebration where you are needed again!
Just looking back over photos from my daughter's Sweet 16 and I wanted to share what a great job Heart for Hospitality did for us. What a relief to have Lori and her family step in a take care of the details for me. It was an outdoor movie themed party. Each detail from the invitations, popcorn machine, candy, cookies, movie food, and projector, everything was perfect! It was the easiest party I've ever thrown. They came in and set it all up, I didn't have to worry about a thing. I appreciate their creative minds and attention to detail so much, and would definitely hire them for any future events. Thank you again Lori, Donald, Kylie and Kelsie for all your hard work and dedication. You guys are the best!
Heart for Hospitality provided phenomenal service from start to finish with our May 2019 wedding. Kylie, and her mom Lori, were eager to make our wedding exactly they way we envisioned it. They were detailed and thorough in the planning stages and made sure we were happy with every aspect. The flowers were GORGEOUS! Lori assembled my bridal bouquet, centerpieces, flower crowns, and our arch design. I wasn't even sure what I wanted, but with their expertise they created masterpieces. Kylie and Ashleigh were excellent with the planning and coordinating day of as well. From planning, to rehearsal and the big day, they made sure it was all perfect. They are professional and truly cared about our best interest. This family ran business is nothing short of spectacular and I highly recommend Heart for Hospitality for your event planning needs.

I have known Lori Falk and her family for 20 years going back to when we both had children in elementary school. Even back then Lori had a knack for planning events and hosting amazing parties, just for the fun of it. When I heard she had started her own hospitality company to help others plan and host amazing parties I knew we had to use her. My husband was turning 60 and we wanted to host a birthday bash for nearly 200 people... There was no way I wanted to take on this task alone, so we hired Heart for Hospitality to help…and help they did! After discussing ideas with Lori she and her crew took over. They planned, organized, decorated, set up, and tore down, the most amazing, stress free event I have ever hosted. The week of the event my sister and several good friends contacted me to ask what they could do to help. After all, my husband and I had a party for two hundred people coming up and I must be going a little crazy. I told them they could do exactly what I was doing…NOTHING! Lori and Heart for Hospitality had everything planned and organized to the very last detail. The birthday party was a hit and our guests had a wonderful time. The decorations were perfect, the food was delicious, the band was awesome, and the venue was cleaned up by the 11:00 PM deadline. I cannot emphasize enough how stress free the event planning and execution was with the help of Heart for Hospitality. We highly recommend Heart for Hospitality for event planning! They are professional hard-working, creative, and best of all, they love what they are doing.
Thank you so much Heart for Hospitality!!! You made my wedding day absolutely perfect! I cannot think of a single thing I would have wanted to change. It was so magical and romantic, and you blew my expectations out of the water (our guests are still talking about it!). Heart for Hospitality handled everything -- from planning, to the bouquets, to venue styling, to day of coordination, to bustling a giant tulle dress and did it seamlessly! From beginning to end, your whole team was absolutely amazing! You all were so flexible and went above and beyond for myself and everyone in/at the wedding and I am truly grateful for that. Kelsie and Kylie are the most patient people I have ever met! They kept me so calm and had me laughing during all the "behind the scene," things, it was great! I would have Heart for Hospitality do every event I have in the future in a heart beat!
Heart for Hospitality surpassed our expectations and made our wedding even more beautiful than we dreamed! They provided such gorgeous flowers, signs, centerpieces, arch decor, games and more! All with minimal stress! We took some of the bouquets home after our wedding and I can't stop staring at them, they're just so beautiful. Heart for Hospitality has been an absolute joy to work with. They made sure everything was how we (myself and the groom) wanted - not what others wanted or expected. They were thorough and detail-oriented every step of the way. To top it all off, they were SO warm and welcoming! It was lovely just being in their presence! We highly recommend Heart for Hospitality to anyone looking for beautiful decor and wonderful people.

Just wanted to thank Kelsie, Lori & their crew of amazing workers for all they did for our daughters wedding. It was a fun vintage barn dance theme and it was a huge success. They did the flowers, decor & coordination of the days' events and it all went off without a hitch. Thanks ladies!!
Heart for Hospitality styled and planned my daughter's wedding on Saturday November 2015, and it was gorgeous. From the teepee photo booth, flower draped iron arch with chandelier, to the fabric covered wheels inside the barn, it was all beautiful. We had many questions along the way which they happily helped us with. I highly recommend Lori and Kelsie to help you with your next event. Check out their photos from the Williams Barn in San Marcos. Thanks again Heart for Hospitality, you made Kristin and Brian's wedding magical!
Heart For Hospitality made our event so spectacular!! Lori, Kelsie and the team were all so incredibly sweet and helped in all of the details to make sure the event was a success! They have a wonderful selection of rentals that was perfect for our wedding and added so much to the overall feel and style. There is no way our day would have run as smoothly or looked as beautiful if it had not been for Heart For Hospitality!! Their services and rental items are superb and truly are a one-stop-shop for all of your event needs. I highly recommend this company for any kind of event! I look forward to working with them again very soon!
Brian & Randi Lynch
Planning an event does not fall under the category of "strengths" for us. Lori & her team at Heart For Hospitality were amazing! It begins with conversation so the event is truly YOURS, then the creativity begins. Our party was seamless; earning so many compliments, ooohs, and ahs from our guests. Stepping into our yard was just amazing, and best of all, we were relaxed hosts! Heart For Hospitality will absolutely be back for events in our future!!!
Heart for Hospitality planned and organized my daughters college graduation party. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to put my trust in. Lori and Kelsie went way beyond the call of duty to make this day very special for all of us. They completely transformed my backyard to give it that "WOW" factor! I would highly recommend Lori and Kelsie to anyone looking for help with an event. It was the perfect day! Thanks again Heart for Hospitality!
Amazing! Heart for Hospitality did so many details of decorating and making everything beautiful for my wedding so I was able to just enjoy the day! So talented at making everything look beautiful and takes of it all to the littlest details!
Helped us host a beautiful tea party! The decorations were amazing and everybody loved the gorgeous flower arrangements. Such creative and kind people to work with, they helped take care of everything.The work they do is beautiful and they do a great job at making your vision come alive ♥
I recently had the pleasure of working with Lori and Kelsie at Heart for Hospitality. They styled my daughter's Bridal Shower and the work they did was nothing short of amazing. They took the time to meet with me and get to know more about our vision. They nailed it!! I attended my daughter's shower completely worry free. They arrived early and took care of everything professionally and exceeded my expectations with everything they did! I highly recommend these two for any party, gathering or event, their creativity and resources are endless and so is their joy and love of what they do!
Heart for Hospitality definitely made my wedding dreams come true. From the start they knew exactly what I wanted and they made it happen. From helping us pick my wedding venue, the food, desserts, color palettes, photographer, decor, and the details in our floral design. I put all my trust in them and they made my planning experience the easiest and most enjoyable. I'm truly grateful to have worked with such talented and amazing people. I cannot wait to work with them for future events. Thank you for everything!
Catherine & Jim Hoffmann
Lori and her staff created a party way beyond our expectations. The food at our party was delicious, the decor was beautiful, and the event flowed beautifully. We also appreciated that a lot of thought and concern went into our budget, which was met easily. But really what sets Heart For Hospitality a part from the rest is the detail and care they put into our event! It truly left us speechless and our guests still are talking about it...that is a memory we will always cherish, mostly beause of the heart and the people behind it. Thank you Heart For Hospitality!!!
So talented, creative, hard working, positive, and easy & fun to work with! I just love these gals!
I'm so happy that I was able to have Heart for Hospitality style and coordinate my wedding. They did so much for me that I didn't have to worry about a thing! I was going for a 1920's look and they nailed it perfectly with the decorations. They constantly communicate with you which is really nice and they were so helpful with the planning. I felt very relaxed on my wedding day knowing that I had them to set it up and glam it up for me. Thank you so much for everything!!! You guys are the best!
If I could give more the 5 stars, I would!!!! I can't believe how amazing my wedding was! Lori, Don and Kelsie did such an amazing job staging and decorating my wedding... They really payed attention and were on point with what I envisioned!! I honestly felt like they listened and handled everything with care and gave me 110%!! To this day, I am getting compliments on my beautiful Rustic, Prairie Chic Wedding... They truly gave me a Pinterest Wedding!!! Thank you Falk Family!!!!!!
I was lucky enough to be their first client! I can't tell you how pleased we were with their work! We had a Tiffany & Co. themed baby shower and their team took the idea to the height of classy! The guests loved the outcome of the baby bottle favors, amazing cake, decorations, food, and so on. For me as the hostess, I loved just basically showing up with my task list items that they gave me! It was such a pleasure to not have to worry about the details!
I have also attended events that have been put on by their team. Each event has been set up on time, filled with plenty of food/goodies/and drinks, and a very festive environment where guests can truly enjoy!!
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for HEART for HOSPITALITY! You are a dream team

Thank you so much Heart For Hospitality for making our day more than we could of ever hoped for. The way you assisted us day in and day out, working at meeting every single request of ours was just amazing. The entire experience and outcome was unbelievable. You went above and beyond to make sure this was a memorable experience and we will never forget what you did for us on our big day!
Ashley & Billy Breault
Kelsie was great to work with and a total sweetheart! She made the planning process so much easier on me and had all the details covered. She & the H4H team also did a great job with staging both the ceremony and reception sites. The florals for our wedding day were absolutely exceptional... The flower crown for our flower girl was adorable! I don't know how I would have got through my wedding day without Kelsie as our coordinator, even my husband kept commenting throughout the night how great of a job she did. Heart for Hospitality really lives up to their name and anyone would be lucky to work with them :)
After being to a wedding and baby shower that was coordinated by Heart for Hospitality i have to say they do an excellent job. Decorations are beautiful, the people are very kind and friendly. I would recommend to everyone to use them for any parties or wedding. They blew my mind with everything they did.
Thomas & Samantha Moore
I can't tell you enough how grateful my husband and I are for Heart for Hospitality!!! Kelsie was our event coordinator for our wedding and was absolutely amazing! Coming from someone who loves to plan, we decided to trust someone else with this for our wedding. She was able to bring my ideas to life and actually add to them. I've also never had more joy working with someone who genuinely wants to make sure everything is designed specifically for you. It was the most wonderful thing to have Kelsie be a part of our special day and I hope more engaged couples get to experience this for themselves. Thank you so much for helping us have a worry free, dreamy wedding!
Herman & Cassandra Gordon
It's not very often I am "blown away" or struggle to find words to express myself and here I am...pretty much speechless. I have had the honor to attend events coordinated by Heart for Hospitality before and knew we were in good hands, but when I tell you that Kelsie, Lori, Donald, Kylie and their entire Heart for Hospitality team made our wedding day AMAZING...I am not kidding. As a bride I wondered how can they see and execute what I have been dreaming of for many years and they did, down to the very detail. They sat with us and took the time to learn about what makes us tick as couple. They captured the essence of our union. From venue search to lunch dates to look at flowers, to linens and even hand made risers for our table centerpieces - nothing was missed. Day of jitters didn't happen, Kelsie was calm and encouraging and everything ran smooth and if it didn't, this bride was clueless :) - A dream come true. Herman and I are forever blessed and can't wait to post pictures for you all to see for yourselves how breathtakingly beautiful our day was. THANK YOU THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.
Heart for Hospitality was absolutely AMAZING! Our wedding was in June on the beach and we had Kelsie as our wedding coordinator. She came with an assistant helped make our day exactly what we wanted! Prior to the wedding, Kelsie and the H4H team answered every question of mine, took me to look at florals to see what my style was, and completely saw my vision for our classic beachy wedding. On the day of, she took care of everything - set up, tear down, coordinating the timeline, reminding us to go enjoy the photo booth :), etc. they went above and beyond with the florals, decor, and personalized the wedding to us a couple. The entire Falk family was the most kind, wonderful team to work with and alleviated so much of my stress leading up to the wedding! I would 100% recommend them - they are the best!!
We used Heart for Hospitality for our wedding. They were so helpful when working with us to show us what all of our options were. They did such an amazing job creating the vision we had! Seriously, their floral arrangements are what dreams are made of! We loved working with them! They truly produce 5 out of 5 star work, we would definitely recommend them!
From the moment I spoke to Erin on the phone, I knew I wanted her help/needed her help as my daughter's wedding coordinator. She is overflowing with ideas and after one meeting and showing her a few ideas on Pinterest she had a vision for my daughter's wedding that far exceeded anything I could of thought of myself. She truly cares about her clients! She was mindful of our budget and every detail that was important to my daughter! She got to know everyone involved in the wedding and handled all the details with the vendors and venue. I have made a life long friend in Erin and would and do recommend her and Heart for Hospitality for any event you may be planning!
Heart for Hospitality went above and beyond for our wedding. We couldn’t ask for a more perfect family to create the most beautiful layout of our wedding. Not only were the flowers PERFECT, they made every detail, style choice and finishing touches a bride could wish for. They made the process seamless! With their generous hearts, amazing minds and continuous check-ins, I cannot thank them enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives.
I cannot recommend Heart for Hospitality enough!! Lori, Kylie, Kelsie, and the entire team made our wedding dreams a reality and then some. Their expertise in this field makes wedding planning so much less stressful! Their professionalism and genuine desire to bring their clients’ vision to life is not easy to find. I completely trusted Lori with our florals, Kelsie with the details and decor, and Kylie with the coordinating. They have all the connections to the most amazing vendors, too!! My husband and I were able to enjoy the day of our wedding without stressing about event details. Words are not enough to fully express our gratitude for Heart for Hospitality!
Kelsie, Lori, and their team went above and beyond for our wedding florals/decorations! I had a really difficult time articulating what I wanted for our florals, but they were SO helpful and gracious in their meetings with me to walk through the different options and they truly made arrangements better than I could have ever dreamed of. They also provided other decor items such as a welcome sign, seating chart, drink signage, cake knives, and so much more, which was a huge help since we were coming from out of town and wouldn't be able to DIY all of those items. Even with the rising cost of florals, they were able to stay within my budget and create dreamy arrangements. They were incredibly kind and professional, it felt like working with sweet friends! I would recommend them to everyone for any event! Thank you so much Heart for Hospitality!
