All you need is love... and Kate
Working with Kate was a dream come true. With Kate, you get a wedding planner, a day of coordinator, and a close friend. In the year that it took to plan our wedding, she was always there, always available via email, phone calls, text, every step of the way, supporting, cheering, and cracking jokes to help lighten the mood of wedding planning. She understood my schedule, traveled every time closer to me to help me out, and was fantastic at giving me options and choices on how to proceed with decision making. Kate was perfect at keeping track of every detail of my wedding. Our wedding day was simply smooth and perfect. She worked wonderfully with all my vendors, coordinating every segment, like a beautiful orchestra. I would choose and recommend Kate a hundred times over. Thank you! And the dinosaur was the best part.... she actually dressed up in the dinosaur costume and came to our first look to surprise my husband!! Who else would do that?

Without Kate my wedding would have been a mess! She is the best! I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else!

We worked with Kaitlyn (in the Maryland location of this company) and she was incredible!! We are so so grateful for her warm personality, smoothing over so many items we had no idea about (and probably stuff we still don't know about!), planning our whole timeline, dealing with our one vendor mishap that a lot of people saw but she and her assistant remained focused and calm, etc. Truly a dream to have her with us on for the wedding experience!Sent on 10/16/2018

You need Kate in your life!
Kate is the wedding coordinator for you! Both my husband and I feel like we met a friend for life. Kate was extremely organized, creative, and gets things done. We hired Kate as our day-of coordinator, and she came in clutch before the rehearsal when the venue events coordinator completely flunked her role in getting things ready.Sent on 10/22/2018
The day of - I didn't worry about a single thing. Kate was on top of all of the details, she was extremely calm and peaceful when communicating with me, and gave updates as necessary so I knew things were moving along as planned.
I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT KATE!! If you're not sure if you need a coordinator - you do. Kate was absolutely the best decision in building our wedding budget and preparing for the big day.

You think you might not want a day of coordinator? Trust me, it is 110% worth it and Kate help make our wedding day absolutely perfect! She arrived early and ready to get the ball rolling. I would mention things I wanted to do or have done and then hours passed and I would say, "oh no Kate..." and she would have already completed whatever task I was remembering. It was nice to have someone who understood the timeline, was constantly checking on you (even to take my sticky bra when it wouldn't stay on due to heat), and just keep the evening moving. One of my favorite photos of my dad with bridesmaids has Kate in the back doing a pose that screamed "yes that worked out", I just wish I knew what it was! All my family and bridal party raved about how nice she was and she really kept everything in order. I left my car unlocked at the venue and she was sure to have all our decor and belongings locked in the car before she left. She also sent the sweetest thank you! I plan on recommending her to any bride's I know! Thanks a bunch Kate!Sent on 10/16/2018

Kate was amazing to work with! She made the wedding planning process easy and as low stress as possible. She was organized, responsive, prepared and very friendly! Our wedding day went off without a single issue and Kate made sure every vendor was communicated to and updated throughout the entire process. Kate had online checklists that were easy to fill out along the way to make the planning easy and efficient. At the end of our wedding and after a very long day, Kate made sure everything was accounted for, organized and made it safely back to our home. I would highly recommend Kate to plan your wedding or event and I am so glad she was part of our wedding!

Kate Charter is an absolutely fantantastic coordinator.
We hired her as our Day-Of coordinator, but she really turned out to be so much more. As two people in production, we are both consummate planners and honestly, dubious about having to hire a required Day -Of Coordinator for our venue. But boy, did Kate prove us wrong! She was an one of the most important parts of making getting hitched go off without a hitch.
Our wedding this past May (2018) was destination (Denver, CO) not only for our families, but for us as well. Traveling to-and-from LA for several months to plan was really made effortless by Kate's help and support. Not only did she have recommendations for everything from vendors to how our processional should go, Kate was adept at problem-solving on the fly and always calm and kind in her treatment of everyone--from families to vendor employees. Not only that, but she attended our tastings and walk-thru meetings (not part of the package), so that she could offer helpful insight on our last minute decisions and changes.
She was like an "invisible" superhero! She made decisions on the fly that made our day seamless and enjoyable--if there were any issues, we certainly didn't feel them.
Our only job that day was to live it up, and Kate went above and beyond to make that possible. We are so grateful to her for making our day truly a day to remember.
We would recommend her to anyone, any day. Thanks again, Kate! Jackie & Ryan

Since day ONE Kate of Coordination Co has been literally the most helpful human being in planning my entire wedding. I'm from Michigan, had our destination wedding in Colorado Springs. Planning at that much of a distance was very overwhelming until I talked to Kate! She assured me from day one that she will do anything that I need and she did just that- and more! From finding various amazing vendors out in Colorado to being there for me 24/7 with any questions I had- Kate always put in 100%. She always had everything under control. I love that she uses the Aisle Planner site- so we were both always on the same page, she had contact with all of the vendors I had hired, & the timeline was on the website for both of us to view/update to the big day. Kate is also very creative- which is important to have in a wedding coordinator! She had various ideas & little details to add that I would have never thought of- for example I was skipping out on the decor for the wedding reception, but she had a wonderful idea to decorate & brought her own vases (in many types for me to choose from) to display the girl's bouquets as centerpieces for dinner & that came out beautifully! There is so much that she has done for our special day that made it THAT much more special & I couldn't be more thankful. Without Kate this wedding would have been a nightmare. She is VERY well organized, is such a kind person & does her job with the upmost professionalism. Even on the day of the wedding I wanted to change a few things last minute & she did so with ease. Everyone who attended commented on how great & helpful Kate was!
I am so beyond lucky that we found such an awesome wedding coordinator out in Colorado. I can't say it enough- being an out of state bride made me nervous but Kate put my nerves at ease and our day was absolutely wonderful thanks to her! It was so nice not having to worry about anything on the big day with her being there to take care of it all- Kate is the best!

From day 1 Kate was my knight in shining armor. The biggest "non fight" my fiancé and I got into during the wedding planning was to hire a coordinator or not. Long story short, after months of debate, I found Kate and life changed 100% for the better. Kate met with us over lunch, dinner, text, phone, email...I talked to her more than I did my own mother and maybe fiancé after that. She made sure our vendors were in sync, our timeline was in check, and our family members and bridal party showed up on point. I work in a detail driven career field and got the same kind of communication and professionalism from Kate that I do from my customers on a daily basis. Grooms, do yourself a favor, hire my new BFF Kate!
Ashley · Married on 08/05/2017
Very helpful and did a great job with the decorations
Nikki · Married on 07/15/2017
Kate was fabulous and I don't know how we would have gotten through our wedding without her! She was detailed and thorough while being totally relaxed and she just put me at ease! Oh and their prices were amazingly affordable!

There's not much to say other than my bride and I were absolutely blown away by the level of service and professional care that was given by this team. We had the pleasure of working with Kate, and to be able to have someone there on the day of that would take care of everything no matter what we threw at her gave us peace of mind. She met with us for our rehearsal dinner and was able to give valuable tips as to how we should conduct everything. The day of she showed up super early and ready to work, even while her foot was in a walking boot. I would absolutely recommend this team to anyone who is looking for a reliable service at a great cost that's not going to ruin your honeymoon plans. Also, the fact that she put up with my seven groomsmen was amazing.
Jamie · Married on 06/17/2017
I couldn't have asked for more! Kate saved the day at our wedding - if I had a dollar for the number of times we said, "Thank god for Kate!" on the day of we probably could have funded our whole wedding. She was organized, professional, and made sure we and our guests had fun. Our wedding would have been ten times more stressful without her.

I was trying to plan a destination elopement with intimidate family and was getting so stressed out about finding a place that would accept small parties without having a minimum buyout requirement. Since I wanted something so small, they simply gave me a perfect outdoor mountain spot and restaurant recommendations that would have a private feel AND they didn't want to charge me because of what I was looking for! They thought it'd be unfair when they could just give me advice and recommendations. I almost want to have a large wedding just to have their support because I know they'd be awesome at it!
Jenny · Married on 02/14/2016
I wanted to do my own wedding planning, but I needed someone for the day of. The quotes I was getting where really high and I didn't think we were going to be able to afford it until I found Coordination Co. Their service was amazing and they are totally reasonable in price. Thanks Coordination Co!
Gwen · Married on 11/07/2015
I wanted to feel like a princess on my wedding day. I wanted a day of coordinator so didn't have to worry about anything. For the same price as one coordinator through other companies, I had my coordinator and two assistants. I didn't have to lift a finger and I paid less than most my friends did at their weddings for half the service.

Jessie Lynn & the Coordination Co team are the best! I called around to alot of coordinators, but as soon as I spoke to Jessie I knew she was the one to hire. I couldn't have been happier with how my wedding went and big thanks to Coordination Co for helping me pull it off! I recommend them to everyone I know is getting married. Thanks Jessie!
Lexi · Married on 07/25/2015
Coordination Co. made this whole process so simple. I mean I filled out the form online, they call me the very next day, we set the meet and greet where I met Jessie Lynn and the girls that would be working my wedding, and they were there for my rehearsal and then my wedding day and took care of Everything!

Kate did a fantastic job of doing Day-of Coordination for our wedding. She was very helpful with organization and did a great job of resolving issues that came up during the set up of our wedding. I would definitely recommend Kate and the Coordination Co for your Day-of Coordination needs. They were great!

Awful Experience with Kate!
Kate seemed professional when we first met her, but on our wedding day we quickly learned that was NOT the case. We got married at Spruce Mountain Ranch in Larkspur, and the day did not go smoothly at all.Sent on 01/05/2019
1.) Kate stated she would assist with decorations, but she never offered to help my friend, and instead my friend had to do all the decorations and miss the ceremony because she had no help at all. When my friend asked venue related questions, she would just shrug her shoulders and tell her to figure it out.
2.) The whole afternoon multiple people asked "were is Kate", no one knew, and no one could find her. Come to find out (from relatives and friends who finally found her) that she had been sitting near the ceremony site taking personal calls and calls from other clients. Since she was no where to be found, our photographer had to round everyone up for photos. No one had any clue of where they were supposed to be and when (for pictures or other items). My husband and I did not see Kate once from the time we got to the venue until when I walked down the aisle.
3.) We had just finished the ceremony, and we walked back into the groom's lounge to take pictures and sign the marriage license. The groomsmen were supposed to bring the beer to the alcohol vendor when they got on site, but Kate didn't mention that to them, so they didn't know. Kate's assistant was in the grooms lounge when we came back from the ceremony, and she looked at me and the best man and stated "are you f***ing stupid, I told you the alcohol vendor had to serve this when they got on site", then went ranting on. Quickly, the happiest moment of my life turned sour, and I almost started crying. Kate then pulled my husband aside for a 15 minute lecture about how she was going to cut off the best man, and maybe the other groomsmen (my husband and the best man hadn't even had a drink yet). The reason she wanted to cut off the best man, was because he told the assistant that she was not allowed to talk to me or him that way.
4.) Kate wore scrubs, and sat in front of the fireplace, which was the main focal point of the room, eating cross legged and scrolling on her cell phone. She was on her cell phone and laptop for about an hour in front of everyone.
5.) Multiple people saw her drinking at the reception, and at least 15-20 people commented on how unprofessional she was.
I typically don't give negative reviews, but feel that I should warn people. I would not recommend Kate.
