Highly Recommend!

Kaitlin was so amazing to work with and helped relieve so much stress during the wedding planning process and on the big day itself!

During planning, she was quick to respond to our questions, detail oriented, and helped us think through all the details, including things we never would have thought of ourselves. With her help, we felt so prepared going into the big day!

On the day of, Kaitlin was one of the main reasons everything ran so smoothly! She set up all our decor and kept us on time throughout the entire night. At the end of the night, we were expecting to have some clean up to do, but instead Kaitlin had everything ready for our family to quickly put into cars and go!

Kaitlin really went above and beyond and we cannot recommend her enough!!

Excellent experience with Barefoot to Bow Tie

I had a great experience hiring Barefoot to Bow Tie Events to help plan my wedding. The owner, Kaitlin, is very organized, knowledgeable, efficient, and professional. Her planning process will ensure that your schedule runs seamlessly and that all of your vendors are always on the same page with each other. Her help setting up and tearing down the reception was so valuable to me. If you're on the fence about whether to hire a planner, I highly recommend it and particularly recommend this vendor. When I started planning my wedding, I wasn't sure if I needed a planner but there are so many details Kaitlin helped plan and execute that I wouldn't have thought of and wouldn't have wanted for me or a family member to do on one of the busiest and most important days of my life. :)

Takes Care of Everything

One thing that I knew I wanted for our wedding was a wedding decorator. I had talked to many and no one seemed like a good fit, until I talked to Kaitlin. Something just seemed right. She not only would decorate, but she would also be my day-of coordinator. She would take care of everything so I had nothing to worry about. That is something that I didn鈥檛 know I wanted until I talked to her. She answered all my questions right away. Throughout the entire process I knew she was only a text away. I don鈥檛 know how many times I texted her freaking out. She always knew what to say to diffuse the situation. We had many phone calls to go through the timelines of the day. This helped me so much. I would have been a lot more stressed if I didn鈥檛 have those phone calls. I knew once we got to the day of the wedding that I didn鈥檛 have to worry about anything. It was the best feeling in the world where I could just enjoy my day. She and her assistant did an amazing job decorating; she made my vision of my day come to life! I usually have a hard time letting go of the reins when it comes to things like this, but I knew our wedding was in good hands! I would highly recommend Kaitlin to anyone that would like to just enjoy their big day!
