When we unexpectedly moved from NYC to Miami in the midst of the wedding planning process for our wedding in Ithaca, we knew we needed on the ground help during what was an especially chaotic wedding planning process (I later lost that job, we were both unemployed for a bit, so I mean difficult and chaotic!). In researching our options, Katie came back with a very reasonable price and was one of the few day-of coordinators that actually offered her assistance throughout the time leading up to the wedding (most others don't want to talk to you until the week beforehand).Sent on 09/12/2016
Katie TRULY wanted to help throughout the process - she actually would check-in to see how she could help regularly. We met with Katie while in town to meet vendors and she was great in really taking the time to get to know us and understand our vision for the day. We were in regular contact during the 9 months leading up to the wedding and met in-person again while I was in town for my trials. I really leaned on her during the last month when things were so busy and I just didn't have the time to check-in on vendors and deal with the last minute details while starting a new job. She did everything efficiently and effectively, I never had to worry.
Katie did everything SO enthusiastically and was such a great resource for advice, insight and suggestions. The day of and day after the wedding, she was an ANGEL - we were so happy to have her there, she was a part of our group by that time. Katie stayed out of our way but was right at my side any time I needed her. She helped to manage all of the little details you can't think of when you're in the midst of dealing with bridesmaids, mothers, getting ready, etc. Our day was flawless - I figured something would go wrong but NOTHING did. This was truly a testament to Katie and Mandy's great work on the sidelines. I would not hesitate to suggest Katie to any bride.

I am a DJ, and have worked with Katie from Festivities several times. From another professional's point of view, she is really a pleasure to work with -- she takes care of every little detail, it's so nice to see that her brides just love her, because she takes so much of the stress out of the day for them. And for other vendors working the wedding, it's refreshing to have things move along so smoothly, because she has everything covered. One more thing -- flexibility -- many times, things will have to change at the last minute, due to unforeseen circumstances. At a couple of the weddings I've worked with her, this happened, and it's impressive to watch the smooth transition from one plan to another. I would definitely trust her with my wedding! :)Sent on 08/22/2018

I could not have asked for better planners. Katie's assistants Mandy and Christina did an amazing job putting it all together. They made sure everything went as planned and if things got off track they made sure to get it back to where it needed to be. They listened to everything we wanted and they made sure they got it done. Katie did an amazing job planning and she can definitely count on her assistants for anything. I am so glad we hired Festivities! Thank you all!Sent on 08/28/2018
I have had the honor of meeting the owner Katie Traver Legg at a barn venue wedding. She is fabulous, and talk about stress free planning. It's true when they say " It's all in the details" because it is!!! I, can't say enough about this wonderful business except HIRE them today. It's a true 5 star business filled with passion, love, and and eye for detail from head to toe.
Katie was such a pleasure to work with. She did not miss a beat and kept the wedding running smoothly and on time. As an en event coordinator for a venue, it is always a huge bonus to have such an experienced wedding and event planner to work with and Katie is just that! We look forward to working with her again!
I had the honor of officiating a wedding on the lake with 200 guest, Katie was amazing planning this event for the bride and groom, the wedding went smooth, on time, relaxed, all the decorations were beautiful , as well as the band, bar and food...excellent Katie and staff.
