The best decision we ever made!!

If there is one thing I recommend doing for your wedding, it is hiring Katie with One Fat Dove! I am personally extremely organized and pay a lot of attention to details and Katie was even more organized than me! She thought of so many things that would have never occurred to us and I am convinced that our wedding would not have been as wonderful as it was without her. From the very beginning, Katie was super responsive to emails and she honestly made the entire wedding planning process a breeze. On our wedding day we had a few vendor mishaps (at no fault of Katie's!) and she handled it effortlessly and not a single guest knew anything went wrong. Not only is Katie a great wedding planner, but she is great at making you feel supported throughout your big day and truly cares about you and your wedding. It is so hard to find great vendors, so Katie is truly a gem! Do yourself a favor and book with One Fat Dove!

One fat dove

One fat dove was by far the best money spent for our wedding! Katie sat down with us and created a detailed plan for the wedding day. She took care of everything and saved the day when we couldn鈥檛 find my dress bustle. A must have!
