If I could give Katie 100 stars, I would.
Katie was my day-of coordinator for my wedding in July 2020. She was the #1 reason why my fiance and I were able to enjoy our day to the fullest.
I found Katie on Instagram, and we met virtually six weeks out from my wedding day and went over everything I had planned thus far. She took it from there and coordinated with each vendor on their arrival time, confirmed what they were bringing, and got everyone on the same page. It took all of the pressure off of me, which was such a huge relief because I was planning a wedding in the middle of a pandemic. Leading up to the big day, Katie checked in with me regularly to see if she could assist with anything, reminded me of little details that I had overlooked and offered thoughtful advice to ensure I had the best day ever.
Once our weekend arrived, Katie helped direct our rehearsal, which was so helpful. My fiance and our families sat back, relaxed and ultimately lived in the moment. She was kind, yet assertive, and had our best interest in mind while getting any job done well. Anytime somebody had a question, we pointed them to Katie, and she had the solution. Because she was so organized in our meetings prior, she knew exactly what I wanted/needed during the weekend, so she was the go-to girl. While your big day is about you and your soon-to-be-spouse, it is also a big day for your family. They do not need to be stressed or working! Katie allowed all of us to "be where our feet were" and not think about anything else but celebrating our marriage.
On my wedding day, Katie arrived to the venue before I had even woken up. She checked in all of our vendors, delivered the bridal flowers to my suite, made sure we had our meals, sent me small updates of the reception as it was being decorated (just for my peace of mind)...the list goes on. During our reception, she brought my fiancé and I drinks, she adjusted the lights when I wanted it dimmer, coordinated with the DJ to begin prayers and speeches, etc. She even helped tear down at the end of the night and carry gifts to our car. She knew what the vendors needed for pickup at the end of the night and prepared all of the rentals. I can't fit everything she did for us within this word count, but she did EVERYTHING and more. If this says anything, two of my bridesmaids hired Katie for their upcoming events within a week after my wedding because they were so impressed with her. Her price was so reasonable, and if she had charged 5x what it cost me, I still would have hired her. She was worth every penny. If I could give Katie 100 stars, I would. I recommend her to every bride I meet and I will certainly be calling Katie again for any major event I have in the future - big or small.Sent on 09/04/2020

Everyone needs a Katie at their wedding!!
Katie is one of the most organized and detail oriented planners I have the pleasure of knowing. She was a life saver for anything I needed day of the wedding. Specifically trying to wrangle family members for pictures. Family tends to wander and have a good time and don’t pay attention to when they are called by the photographer for pictures. Katie did an amazing job finding people and making sure they were on deck for the family formals. She saved me a lot of stress towards my own family and isn’t afraid to keep things moving and on schedule. When you try to get every child and family member in a picture you don’t understand how great a wedding planner is until your in that situation. She made sure my dress was bustled and out of my way, made sure I was able to eat/drink and have a good time. She kept me organized in the planning process and was there to help whenever I needed her. You can’t go wrong hiring Katie for your wedding needs!Sent on 10/08/2020

Katie is the best!!
Katie was a total lifesaver during our planning process!! She is so good at giving you options for designs and vendor recommendations that are specific to you and what you want. She made it easy to be more decisive and have confidence in my choices too. She also kept us up to date and organized so that we didn’t have to worry about anything leading up to our wedding day. I can’t tell you how glad I am to have had Katie walk through this process with us. We had the best day ever thanks to her!!Sent on 06/28/2020
