Made Our Day as Special as it Could Be
Katie was such a huge help throughout my entire wedding planning process! I’m not sure how we could have gotten from an idea to an actual wedding without her. From setting up (and re-setting up when we changed my mind) to helping take everything down and stored safely, Katie was there to help and ensure the process went as planned! She had an amazing eye for detail to make sure every centerpiece looked perfect, every table cloth was sitting perfectly, every wedding party member knew what they were supposed to do, and everything looked just the way I had envisioned. We truly appreciated her giving us tips and ideas during our planning process and the day of to make sure our day went as smoothly as possible.Sent on 12/16/2019
Katie had a list of tasks and important details covering every piece of my wedding day to make sure we had thought of everything. I’m so glad she was there to think of and manage the details that I hadn’t even considered. She was willing to help and offer advice when needed as I took my time to make decisions on everything.
She really made sure we were fully prepared and excited for our special day! We are so grateful to her for her help!

Exactly what we needed
Kaitlin was amazing to work with from start to finish. She was professional and knowledgeable, which was extremely helpful since my fiance and I had no idea what we were doing! There were so many times when I needed to focus on things other than the wedding and Kaitlin was perfect at handling whatever I threw at her. She found us the perfect venue, caterer, photographer, etc. There's no way the day would have gone so well without her!Sent on 10/19/2019
Barefoot to Bow Tie Events's reply:Thank you Emylie! I enjoyed working with both of you and the wedding turned out just beautiful! I can completely understand the feeling of being 'lost' trying to plan your wedding as of course you haven't done it before. I'm happy I was there to take some the stress away and reassure you all would be just perfect :)

The perfect wedding day with Kaitlin and her team!!!
Kaitlin was simply amazing!!!! She met with us several times prior to the wedding, she was well organized and made the most of each meeting. Kaitlin showed her expertise and organizational skills before, during and after the wedding. Kaitlin and her fabulous team took care of every detail, and went up and beyond our expectations so we could just enjoy the celebration. Do not think twice if you are even considering Kaitlin to coordinate your wedding, we could not have done it without her, we absolutely Love her!!!!!Sent on 11/25/2019
