    As a wedding planner, it's important that I work well with each of the vendors. Katie and her team are amazing. They created a custom frame for a display of 1,000 paper cranes at my last event. It was beautiful! Also, the centerpieces, bouquets, and cocktail arrangements were incredible. They exceeded my expectations! Katie, thanks so much for everything! Looking forward to working with you again in the future!

    Katie saved our day!

    When we were planning our wedding on our own...we slowly started to see that we were going to be spending way more than we wanted to. We also realized that we might have made the wrong choice in a photographer. We met with her and she was so helpful and gave us free advice without even knowing if we would hire her. We went in for coordination services and quickly realized that we needed more help and she does flowers too. So we saved so much time and stress with her and her team - I was almost mad that I had not met her before we started the process. As a couple on a budget...after having been through the process...I realized that we should have gotten a partial planning package from her before we signed contracts. However...she spoke to our photographer and the rest of the planning process was smooth. We had fun and enjoyed the process and she created the most beautiful chuppah for us, designed my dream bridal bouquet that she customized with fabric from my mothers dress. It is not overstating when I say she literally saved our wedding day. I highly recommend her and her team!

    I'd trust Katie Martin with my life.

    We worked with Elegance & Simplicity for coordinating and decor for our simple, garden-style wedding at President Lincoln's Cottage. A colleague highly recommended Katie as a planner with impeccable taste, who wouldn't try to upsell or make you feel guilty for things you just "have to" have. We rented lanterns for the tables from E&S and our only flowers were the bouquet. It was still truly beautiful!

    More importantly, our little event had more than its share of curveballs in the final week, and Katie really went the mile to ensure things were resolved as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Among other things, my husband's mother had a medical emergency and his parents were unable to travel to the ceremony. When I called her in shock, Katie was in an airport in Minneapolis. By the time she boarded the plane, she had secured a videographer, only 2 days before the wedding. He recorded and delivered the video to us 4 hours after the event (before being paid), so that my husband's mom could watch it before heading into heart surgery the following day. The rest of the E&S team (April, Crishaun, and Jazmin) were great too. They are the real deal.

    We chose "month-of" coordinating, which meant that E&S coordinated the vendors that we booked. I really appreciated that I could completely relax and enjoy the day once we arrived on site, knowing that the team were true pros. After the wedding, Katie followed up with a vendor that hadn't done a great job, and we got a good chunk of money back from them. Even without that help, I think the coordinating services was the best money we spent!
