There literally is not enough enough space here to say everything I want to about Katie Joga of Pure Whimsy, so I’m writing in bullets.
*Her advice and timeline made the planning so doable and easy, and kept my mom from worrying, too!
*She was always available to answer any questions with expert advice, and we never felt like we were bothering her or that she couldn’t handle anything we threw at her
*Her use of basecamp software kept all documents, timelines, and conversations organized and easy
*She worked well with my mother, but also always put my preferences first
*She has exceptional knowledge of vendors (our vendor team was an all-star lineup of outstanding professionals!), budgets, timelines, etiquette, day of organization, and helped us make choices that we were super grateful to have made later!
*She is so organized, kind, and fun to work with- even all of my vendors loved working with her!
*Her visual sense of style and judgement was spot on
*she understood and accommodated my chronic illness perfectly
*She was also so spot on for day of coordination- it was so smooth and stress free. She kept us in the moment on our wedding day and we remembered and enjoyed our day, unlike most of our married friends
*Couldn’t possibly have done a better job- everyone commented on how organized and great she was and asked for her contact info!
Thank you so much for everything, Katie!

We are so thankful that we chose to hire Katie to help plan and coordinate our big day! She was already very familiar with our venue (which was a huge plus) and was beyond organized, which was something that was important to us when we were looking for a wedding planner. She was very responsive to all of our calls and emails and knew all of the answers to any questions that we had. She put together the most incredible timeline for the weekend to help keep everyone on schedule, which was a must as this was a destination wedding for most of our guests. She recommended several amazing vendors and had lots of suggestions on how to add in little touches to make our wedding special (her idea to have a food truck for late night bites was her best idea for sure!) A few weeks before our wedding, she took over handling our entire vendor team so that we could relax and be as stress free as possible. She managed everything the day of, and if anything went wrong, we still don't know about it! Katie is amazing and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great planner! Thank you Katie!

Katie far exceeded any expectations my wife and I could have imagined for a wedding planner. From the first meeting with her, it was clear that Katie was organized, experienced, and passionate about making sure our wedding went exactly how we envisioned it.
Over the course of our roughly 18-month engagement, Katie could not have been more attentive to our needs. She laid out the schedule (managed through basecamp) for both our tasks and hers, and was always quick to respond to our questions. I would say one of her biggest strengths was in helping us fill in the gaps in our vision for the big day and knowing which questions to ask vendors and ourselves when it came to design preferences. She even made sure to reach out when it looked like we were starting to fall behind on our tasks, which we certainly needed. She always had stellar recommendations for vendors but never pressured us to actually take her recommendation. We learned quickly that when Katie recommends someone, they're probably the right fit for the job :)
While I can't sing Katie's praises enough for her guidance in planning the wedding, she was unbelievable on the day-of. When we needed to resort to the rain plan- every bride's worst fear- Katie coordinated all the necessary changes with our vendors and made sure that set-up flowed smoothly. We have since had a few guests that thought the rain plan was our original plan all along!
Of all the choices that went into planning our wedding, hiring Katie was the best decision we made, period. You will not regret it!
A hint of whimsy, a dose of class and a lot of passion are just a few things that we love about Pure Whimsy Events!
When it comes a wedding, there are tons of components and an uncanny amount of planning that goes into the big day. With so much to deal with you need someone who is organized, thorough and easy to communicate with. Katie from Pure Whimsy Events is that someone, she epitomizes everything a planner should be. Her knack for maintaining control throughout the big day in addition to providing vendors like myself thoroughly detailed schedules is second to none. To top it off, she responded to inquiry I had at lightning speed and, most importantly, she was a complete pleasure to work with and I'm confidant that the other vendors at the event we worked together at would say the same thing. If your searching for a planner for your big day, rest assured you have found her. I'm sure I'll work with Katie again in the future and I sincerely look forward to it.
