    Amazing wedding planner and designer

    Altas Design Studio team was amazing! I'm definitely a Type-A personality who likes getting things done. Katie, not only she was personable, she was the type of person who gets it done! She was on our team for the long haul. She knew what I wanted and helped plan everything altogether. I was headstrong on my vision and she exceeded my expectations! I wanted someone who understood the logistics of the venue (Waterfall Lodge & Retreat) and design what works best. She helped out with the vendors and provided great guidance, let alone understood my budget. I cannot thank Katie enough! She contributed so much on my special day. You definitely need her on your team if you want perfection. All of my wedding guests were in awe of everything. We love you Katie! Thank you so much.

    Best planner ever

    Although I’ve only had one wedding, I can’t imagine that one could find a better wedding planner and designer than Katie. She helped us design the vision for our wedding, find vendors that met that vision and our budget, review contracts, and execute that plan on the day. Not only did Katie ensure our wedding was stunning, but also that everything ran smoothly.

    Katie and her team had the perfect blend of friendliness and professionalism. They made us laugh and comforted our nerves, and kept us on track with planning by setting and enforcing deadlines around decision making. I could not recommend Atlas more strongly. Anyone planning a wedding would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with Katie and the Atlas team.

    Atlas Design Studio's reply:

    Thank you Cori for the review! I had SO MUCH FUN planning with you and am soooo thankful that you and Adam trusted me so much with the design. I loved every second of it! The day turned out so beautiful, I loved seeing it all come together and FINALLY celebrate you two :) You two are dream clients and hope to see you at some point when I am up in the city next for a drink! xx Katie
