    Made Our Wedding Happen!

    Katie was brought in last minute when we had to change our plans due to COVID. The changes happened quickly in order for us to still get married on the date we planned while abiding by NYS regulations. We had to switch venues and had to elopement to keep our original date.

    The venue hired Katie to help coordinate all of the logistics to make sure everything went smoothly. Katie listened to everything we were trying to accomplish in a short turnaround. She also made sure that all of the touches we had for our original plans with a large group were implemented so we could still enjoy the personalization we wanted. And of course, it rained, but Katie made sure I didn't have to worry about changing from outside to inside.

    I recommend Katie 110%. You will not be disappointed! She is also so kind, fun, and made us feel so special on our big day.

    Katie was amazing!

    Hiring Katie was the smartest decision we made during the wedding planning process. After handling the majority of preplanning, we chose to hire Katie so that we could actually enjoy the day and not be stressed about making sure all the details were done correctly. She more than met our expectations and we had a perfect day! Thank you Katie!!

Katie Hamuka

Owner/ Lead Coordinator

Hi, I’m Katie!

I started my own event planning business sitting in my mom’s living room. It started with planning my son's birthday party and has rapidly grown. I had an amazing support team which included my mom and my son! With their love and support, I went back to college graduated with my Associate degree, the best part of recieving my degree was having my son handed over the wall at HVCC so that he could walk out the rest of the way with me. I decided event planning was the way I wanted to go went back to school to become a Certified Wedding Planner. In May of 2016, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with my Bachelors degree in Event Management, having my son in the audience watching me, was the best part of it. I love being able to show him you can do anything you set your mind to.

I am so happy to do what I love for a living and thankful for every event that I have been a part of and for all of the new friends I have made along the way. I hope this has given you a little insight into my passion and heart. If you'd like to know more, please do not hesitate to ask.

I look forward to seeing how I can coordinate an "A Lively Event" for you!


​XOXO,

Katie
