    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.

    Stop what you're doing and hire her

    Hiring Katie for our big day was easily one of the best decisions we made. I was one of those brides that didn't think I needed a wedding planner/event coordinator - let me tell you - you NEED Katie. Anytime you are unsure about something, she is right there to hear you out. Need to vent about planning? (trust me you will need to several times) - Katie will listen and make time for you. A Lively Event has several different packages to meet your needs and budgets. The bridesmaids and groomsmen adored Katie, our parents praised her as a godsend; I don't know what we would have done without her. We've never had the pleasure of meeting someone so compassionate about their work and making other peoples dreams come true - on one of the biggest days of their lives.

Hi, I鈥檓 Katie!

I started my own event planning business sitting in my mom鈥檚 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!


鈥媂OXO,

Katie
