Look no further: Ginger Bee Events & Planning is THE BEST!

Our wedding would not have been possible without Ginger Bee Events & Planning. We hired Natalie for full wedding planning. She was invaluable, to say the least. Natalie brought our vision to life, and far exceeded our expectations while doing so. She is organized and detail-oriented. She also listened to our wants and needs, and worked with us in coming up with solutions. Her vendor suggestions were always spot on. We threw a lot at Natalie, and she seemed unfazed by any of it. She hit it all out of the park. I have a feeling she can work with any type of personality. I was unnecessarily stressed about planning the details, but Natalie and the team of vendors made the wedding day flow so smoothly. I was actually relaxed and confident on the day of our ceremony! Natalie is the best. I would highly recommend anyone planning a wedding to hire Ginger Bee Events & Planning -- they will not regret it!

A must for a PERFECT wedding!

I cannot begin to tell you how much help Natalie was before and on our big day! She took care of so much and was a great resource for planning every little detail. When ever we felt stressed or panicked while planning, a quick email or call to Natalie and she instantly had us feeling better. Going into the wedding day, I was never stressed or concerned about something going wrong, because I knew that Natalie had it covered. She was perfect and I cannot imagine our wedding without her!

The best decision you will make!

Without a doubt the smartest decision we made when planning out wedding was hiring Natalie. At first the idea of hiring a wedding planner sounded way to fancy for what we were going for, but I shudder at the idea we almost did this without her help. She was so organized throughout the entire process and honestly made planning a wedding feel easy. Plenty of times throughout this process I turned to my husband and said, can you imagine doing this on our own. This feeling only peaked on our wedding day and the days before when I realized all I need to do is relax - a feeling I don't think every bride can say. She was worth every penny, and then some.

I met Natalie just as she was getting started in business, and then a few summers later I was the second shooter at a wedding she happened to be coordinating - we were both so surprised and THRILLED to see each other! She did a sensational job. The way she managed the timeline as well as setting up all of the decor so that it photographed beautifully made my job so much easier. I've had the pleasure of seeing several other event designs of hers and I'm constantly inspired by her ingenuity. In addition, she is personable, enthusiastic, and so much fun. I can't wait to work with her again. She truly cares about her craft and her clients!
