Amazing Wedding Planner :)!

Katelynn guided us through our wedding planning journey, and we felt so comfortable and listened to every step of the way. We chose a semi-package since we had picked out our venue and photographer in Santa Barbara already. This was one of her strong points, which was her ability to adapt to a new vendor area and establish positive connections with each of our vendors. We hope she continues to work in Santa Barbara, since it was a joy to work with her and see what ideas she developed after visiting our venue space. She brought a sense of creativity and great ideas when it came to bringing our vision of an intimate wedding to reality. Our day was so special and went smoothly thanks to her lead and direction. Special thanks to her associate, Courtney, as she was a great addition to the team and worked so well with the vendors! We highly recommend working with Own the Day.

Katelynn is a miracle worker!

I found Katelynn on Wedding Wire and she did not disappoint! I had a huge issue where a venue changed their rules about something I had already paid thousands of dollars for and they told me I couldn’t use it a week before the wedding (they approved it months ago). I was beside myself but then Katelynn stepped in to fix it and she got them to change their minds and I was able to use the items I had purchased. Hire Katelynn! You won’t be disappointed.

The absolute best!

When your wedding day is approaching, you want someone in your corner who will ensure not only that your big day goes off without a hitch, but that you feel in control and at ease throughout the entire process. Katelynn was that person for me. She was kind, professional, organized, and calm throughout the whole process! I chose the partial planning package. Katelynn was available for zoom meetings to get an idea of the vision for the wedding and she helped me pick out beautiful design details that were a hit at the wedding! She executed all the design details perfectly on our wedding day and everything was organized and coordinated by her. I virtually had no wedding day stress related to planning - thanks to Katelynn! I highly recommend Katelynn as your wedding coordinator/planner!
