I could cry thinking about how perfect Katie and A lively Event made our day!
If you think you don't need a wedding planner (like I originally thought), think again! Every bride NEEDS Katie and her company! She is unbelievably flexible and is so helpful in decision making and guidance. Prior to hiring Katie we had booked our venue and all of our vendors. We planned on doing everything ourselves, but I am so so so glad we had Katie to make our special day an absolute fairy tale! She was there on the other end of the phone for any questions, small or large, to reason with the anxious mind of a bride, came to the final dress fitting to ensure someone knew how to bustle the dress and was there the day of making sure everything went smoothly and even appeared out of nowhere when a safety pin was needed for a guests broken zipper and arranged for an uber ride for a grandparent who was too tired to wait for a shuttle to pick him up. Her assistant Audrey is a saving grace as well, who cleaned up our hotel room where we got ready before the ceremony and directed us step by step on where we needed to be, reminding us to drink water and have fun! Well worth budgeting for this wonderful planner!Sent on 07/03/2019

Katie and her team were the absolute best! Katie was there every step of the way. On the day of the wedding, she arrived while hair and makeup was being done and was the very last to leave at the end of the night. There was an issue with the caterer and I was never even aware of it. Katie made sure to take care of it and make sure I didn't know about it until after my day was over. I don't know what we would have done without Katie and the A Lively Event team! I highly recommend you hire them! We had researched many other wedding planners and never for a second, worried about our choice of booking A Lively Event.Sent on 05/22/2017

The Remington Wedding
What a great experience! Our bride, Julie, was quite anxious about having everything fall into place. That’s where Katie and her staff came in. All emails, texts, and calls were responded to immediately! Katie also mediated between the bride and vendors, ensuring that Julie’s needs were met and, often exceeded. On the day of the wedding, things went so smoothly. Her staff even had a needle and thread on hand, so when the Father of the Groom lost a suit jacket button, it was immediately repaired. It was great to have someone else take care of details, so we could truly enjoy and adsorb the day. Katie and her staff were kind, professional, and thoughtful. They provide an invaluable service and I would recommend them in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/18/2018
Katie from A Lively Event is truly amazing! She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are taken care of. She also makes sure to check on the vendors she is working with to make sure they are okay and see if they need anything. Katie is so easy to work with and we love working with her.
Katie and her team are PROS at their work... they will plan and execute every detail to ensure that your day is as perfect as you always dreamed! They're a joy to work with and I would highly recommend their service to anybody!!
