Katie is the best!

I had my wedding at Walnut Grove and was connected to Katie McJimsey by Michele.

Katie was organized, thoughtful, patient, and responsive. We had a small intimate wedding and didn't really know what we wanted at some points.

Katie did an amazing job guiding us with suggestions that were in line with what we wanted for our wedding day.

She kept everything organized with a workbook that made everything clear on both sides.

The day of the wedding, she calmed our nerves and kept everything moving so smoothly. I cannot say enough how amazing it was to just show up and know that everything was taken care of.

She decorated everything beautifully and even moved our arch flowers to our sweet heart table.

I highly recommend her and can't thank her enough for making our wedding day perfect!

Loved working with Katie & Mia Bella Weddings!

Katie was our coordinator for our wedding on 10/8/21, and she was a pleasure to work with. She's very organized and responsive. We had our wedding at Walnut Grove where she is extremely knowledgeable about the venue, their policies, and how events typically flow.

With her experience at Walnut Grove, it was great to have a default, "this is what we typically do," for the stuff we didn't really care about, so we could make a quick decision and move on - Katie provides that perspective perfectly. She was also totally up for making adjustments and tweaks to the norm that ultimately reflected our personalities and preferences on our special day.

By booking your coordinator with Mia Bella Weddings, all of the wedding planning that happens months (maybe even a year+) in advance is still going to fall on you, but having their expertise to guide you during those months, answer questions, and then really begin coordinating logistics and timing a month before through to the day-of made our wedding day less stressful.

The thing about a good coordinator, like Katie, is that if they're doing their job right, you probably won't notice their impact on your wedding day, but just know that it's because they're intercepting and solving any problems before it even gets to you. Because of Katie, we could really focus on enjoying the day and being with each other and our friends and family. This is exactly why it's worth adding a wedding coordinator to your budget, and why I absolutely recommend going with Mia Bella Weddings.

Best Wedding During The Hardest Year

To jump straight to it, my wife and I had an absolute dream wedding at Walnut Grove. We originally planned to have our wedding in September 2020, but given the pandemic, we moved it back to August 2021. We worked with both Michele and Katie for coordinating our wedding and they were both so kind, caring, and helpful. Katie with her magical workbook helped us to create a timeline for the day that catered to our wants and needs while making sure no detail was overlooked. I cannot imagine a more difficult wedding to try and plan for given the pandemic so they deserve some sort of ribbon for the extra blood, sweat, and tears they endured for making this day possible. We cannot emphasize just how amazing Mia Bella was and how well our wedding turned out.

We had 110 guests come to Walnut Grove for the wedding and they all told us how seamless and beautiful the day was. Katie was our day-of coordinator, and she was an absolute legend by keeping the day tightly scheduled without ever making us feel rushed. We know Katie did her job flawlessly since we were able to hand off all tasks and were able to focus on enjoying the day completely. It truly was a dream come true of a day. I will forever advise all my friends and family to hire experienced wedding coordinators like Katie and Michele since they will allow you to fully enjoy the wedding you deserve.

Two words come to mind when I think of Michele of Mia Bella Weddings, calm and organized. Every event that I have done with Mia Bella has gone flawless and smooth. Mia Bella handles every wedding with such attention to detail that I have yet to do a wedding with them that did not go as planned. This is where the calm comes in. If even the slightest issue comes up, Michele is so quick to diffuse or solve the problem. Brides and Mothers of the bride can rest assured that everything is being handled by professionals. I highly recommend Mia Bella to make your special day unforgettable.
