The Best Wedding Planner in Wisconsin

I cannot recommend Katie enough as THE wedding planner/coordinator you should get for your wedding day. Katie had an impossible job - trying to unify my and my husband's visions (which were usually almost opposite of eachother) into a cohesive event, in a very spatially restrictive venue, with very unique components (turning our ceremony space into a surprise rock band performance and back into a reception/dance floor). Not only did she do it flawlessly while having us both feeling heard and represented, but she also had things under control in such a way that I felt not one single, solitary, SPECK of stress on our wedding day and was able to be carried away by the bliss and serenity of the best day, evening, and night ever (and that is a huge feat as I can confidently say I've never NOT been stressed a single day or hour in my life). Katie knows her stuff, can anticipate potential problems and comes up with creative and effective solutions, and goes above and beyond to help bring our visions to life. And, she's an all-around lovely person. If you choose Willow and Waylon Events for your wedding day, you won't be disappointed!

So helpful, detail oriented, and responsive!

We would highly recommend Willow + Waylon Events for anyone planning a wedding. Katie was so helpful, communicative, and supportive throughout the entire wedding planning process. Katie thought of every detail along the way and was always so prompt with answering our questions and helping with every step of the process. On the day of our wedding, Katie ensured that everything went smoothly. We don’t know what we would have done without her there to help coordinate last minute details, set up, and everything else. Katie works with all of your wedding vendors to ensure that everyone is on the same timeline and that you are never feeling rushed or stressed on your wedding day. Choosing Willow + Waylon events was the best decision we could have made as Katie helped us have the wedding of our dreams!

Phenomenal Wedding Coordinator!!!

Hiring Katie from Willow and Waylon Events was the absolute best wedding decision we made!! If you’ve planned a wedding or any large event, you know how stressful and overwhelming it can be. Katie helped us keep everything organized, was an amazing liason between us and all of our vendors, and allowed us to have the most stress-free wedding day possible, which is exactly what my husband and I wanted. Katie was always easily accessible. She was prompt to return phone calls and responded quickly to emails and texts. Whenever I started stressing during our planning process, I would contact Katie to get the peace of mind and direction I needed. On the day of our wedding, she was the go to person for questions, concerns, and you name it. She made everything flow effortlessly and come together flawlessly! Our day was as perfect as it could have been, thanks to Katie’s care, coordination, and attention to all the little details. She went above and beyond from the very beginning to the very end, and it was a true pleasure to work with her!
My husband and I would recommend Katie to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator! If you need one, Katie’s the one you want.
