    Katie is the best in the business

    Katie will turn your wedding into a stress-free dream wedding!!! She is seriously everything you could want in a wedding coordinator - organized, professional, communicative, detail-oriented, knowledgeable, artistic eye, money saving tips, and an all around pleasure to be around. She was an advocate for us with our less than responsive (or new to the business) vendors in the weeks leading up to the wedding and kept everything running smoothly and on schedule day-of. She was flexible when I last minute decided not to do bouquet/garter toss, but also efficient with gentle reminders when it was time to get things rolling. I highly recommend hiring her for your wedding! I could not imagine this day without her.

    Katie is Amazing!

    Katie was great!! I could not have done it without her. I was so maxed out before my wedding and Katie would let me know what needed to be done and by when. She would do things I thought I had to do myself - she always had a can-do attitude which was so relieving. When I was overwhelmed with options, Katie would help narrow them down and once I had made a decision, Katie executed on them so well. On my wedding day, Katie was always close enough to ask her a question or make a request but was also expertly keeping an eye on everything else. 

    Finding a wedding coordinator is an incredibly stressful task because so much is at stake. Go with Katie - you will not regret it! 

    Thank you, Katie!! You made our day so special and we're so thankful for you!!
