    A must for a PERFECT wedding!

    I cannot begin to tell you how much help Natalie was before and on our big day! She took care of so much and was a great resource for planning every little detail. When ever we felt stressed or panicked while planning, a quick email or call to Natalie and she instantly had us feeling better. Going into the wedding day, I was never stressed or concerned about something going wrong, because I knew that Natalie had it covered. She was perfect and I cannot imagine our wedding without her!

    Thanks so much Marc! That is really all that I can ask from my couples is trust. I'm so glad that everything went smoothly. Your wedding was truly exciting and fun for me to help plan! What a unique affair for your friends and family :)

    The best decision you will make!

    Without a doubt the smartest decision we made when planning out wedding was hiring Natalie. At first the idea of hiring a wedding planner sounded way to fancy for what we were going for, but I shudder at the idea we almost did this without her help. She was so organized throughout the entire process and honestly made planning a wedding feel easy. Plenty of times throughout this process I turned to my husband and said, can you imagine doing this on our own. This feeling only peaked on our wedding day and the days before when I realized all I need to do is relax - a feeling I don't think every bride can say. She was worth every penny, and then some.

    Incredible day!

    We wanted to have a small, non-traditional wedding and Natalie absolutely knocked it out of the park. She did a fantastic job not only at planning/ coordinating our wedding, but taking extra care to make it really special for us and our guests. Natalie is super down-to-earth, exited and enthusiastic, and just all around awesome to work with! We would highly recommend her.

    Thank you Natalie!

    The day-of coordinator may be your most important wedding vendor hire, and if you’re like me, you don’t want to have to worry about a thing on your wedding day. Natalie was communicative and professional throughout the entire wedding planning process. Her and her assistant provided excellent day-of coordination services and I would highly recommend her to other couples.

    Fantastic Day-Of Coordinator!

    Natalie was an absolutely incredible day-of wedding coordinator, and our wedding day wouldn't have been nearly as successful without her. She kept everything running smoothly, was flexible with our meetings, and made our wedding stress-free.

    Before the wedding itself, Natalie had great suggestions for vendors and was very organized. We also loved how she kept the day's schedule up to date, and coordinated with our vendors so we never had to worry about it. She walked us through our day-of timeline on more than one occasion, made sure we were comfortable with it, and also handed out copies to our wedding party the night before so everyone was on the same page.

    We’d absolutely recommend Natalie for anyone looking for a wedding coordinator. We got so many compliments from our friends, family, and other vendors saying how easy Natalie was to work with, and how friendly she was. We would recommend Natalie in a heartbeat!

    Most important wedding decision (besides saying "yes")!

    I can’t even begin to tell you how incredible Natalie is. From our first meeting to our send-off, she consistently emanated a balanced vibe of professional and personable. My husband and I had 100% confidence in her as our coordinator, and if she was ever overwhelmed during the planning process, we will never know. Due to our large families and mostly-local friends, our wedding had upwards of 200 guests. With that many people a lot could go wrong, but (as far as I know), it was seamless because of Natalie! Everyone in our wedding party commented on how well she ran the show during the rehearsal and on the big day. She advocated for us when we had some communication issues with our venue, and she asked us all the questions we didn’t know we had to contemplate well ahead of time so that we could be worry-free in the days leading up to the wedding. I probably will never know just how much work went into making it all come together; I guess that’s the mark of a brilliant event coordinator!
    Oh, and on top of her planning skills, she is an incredible designer and florist. I don't have much in the way of design vocabulary, so I didn't offer much direction, but she figured me out to a T and put together the most incredible ceremony flowers.

    Natalie is awesome!

    Natalie was our day-of coordinator for our July 2018 wedding. Natalie is super down to earth and personable and was a pleasure to work with! During our coordination meetings, she worked with us to get every detail of our wedding day timeline planned out, and she thought of all the little things we would have missed! Natalie also worked seamlessly with our reception venue coordinator and was always quick to respond to all our questions/emails. Week of wedding Natalie took care of the final coordination with our vendors to make the week of our wedding a breeze. On the day of our wedding, everything went smoothly; we were able to really enjoy the day and not have to worry about any of the details or logistics. We had an amazing time at our wedding, and know we have Natalie to thank for that! After the wedding, we got so many compliments from our friends and family who said how wonderful Natalie was and how great it was to have her leadership throughout the day. Natalie helped us feel confident leading into our wedding week and made the whole experience more fun. Would highly recommend Natalie!!

    There was so much we absolutely loved about our wedding day and Natalie made it all happen! Please do not plan a wedding without hiring her. She has so much knowledge of the entire planning process and everyone in the industry. She was immensely helpful in coming up with creative ways to make the day reflect our relationship rather than sticking with the same old traditions.
    Many guests commented on the laid-back, easy flow to the day without feeling like they didn't know what was going on at any given time. We give full credit to Natalie for keeping us on schedule and also completely unaware of the schedule at all times.
    She also happens to be a super fun person to have around all day, too!

    Natalie is the absolute bestest!

    Natalie is the BEST. That's all you need to know, really. We had the amazing luck of working with her for full planning and day-of coordination, and she has turned us from planner-skeptics to enthusiastic planner evangelists. But not all planners are created equal, so here's why you should go with her…

    1) She's super knowledgeable. Whether you know what you want or have no idea, she has the experience to tell you not only what's doable but also what's smart. She'll make a timeline and a floorplan that puts other planners to shame, and has all kinds of great connections to vendors too.

    2) She's patient and amazing. We were super high-stress and had a crazy schedule, and she was completely unfazed. She understood us and helped me (Typa A, OCD traits, anxious) and my husband (scatter brained, last-minute procrastinator/improviser) both feel relaxed and confident about our wedding and all the million pieces. She’s also very calm, straightforward, super efficient + on top of it, and not at all pushy or overly gush-y.

    3) She's SO ORGANIZED. Every time I thought we might have forgotten something, she had thought of it weeks/months ago. And come up with a backup plan. Our family, wedding party, and guests all felt like the entire day flowed super smoothly and it was because of her and her team!

    4) She's creative and fun. We had the super weird theme of "Kate Spade rides the New York subway while reading Harry Potter" and she absolutely NAILED IT! She made an amazing flower/balloon arrangement for our ceremony backdrop and set everything up spectacularly. She is super talented!!!

    5) She also helped us find great money-saving opportunities and wisely advised us on when it was worthwhile to pay a bit more. This is also why we feel like we ultimately saved money and saved SO MUCH STRESS by hiring Natalie! Sure, you can find a cheaper planner...but having been to and been part of a bunch of weddings lately, I can definitely say that she is top notch and 300% worth every penny.

    I could go on but tldr NATALIE IS WONDERFUL! HIRE HER FOR ALL YOUR EVENTS!

    Creative, fun, and incredibly talented!

    Going into planning a wedding for nearly all out-of-town guests, my husband and I wanted to strike a balance between everything feeling relaxed, intimate, and very PNW while also impressing everyone who traveled so far to be there. Natalie and her team totally delivered and we are so happy to have worked with her! She helped us strike that balance between traditional elements and what felt comfortable for us while giving us incredible ideas along the way. She is enthusiastic, organized, and so much fun to work with leading up to the event and day-of. We hired Natalie to be our day-of coordinator as well as style and design our wedding. She was flexible in accommodating elements that we wanted to do ourselves and listened closely to our requests. The result was breathtaking. On the day of, as soon as I saw my bouquet I squealed in delight and all of my nerves for the day were calmed! We had requested that live plants be integrated into the design so that our flowers would live beyond one day. Now, I am reminded of our incredible wedding every day while we enjoy the orchids that Natalie selected. I cannot recommend Natalie and her team enough. We are so happy!

    Emily, there are no words to describe how much I enjoyed working with you on your wedding! You and Peter approached planning with such an even-keeled and intentional manner. This showed itself on the day-of with all your kind friends and family. Add to that an aesthetic that is drool-worthy and I was in heaven as your coordinator and designer! I would love to be able to do many more events exactly like yours :)

    Natalie spoke our language - she was tech savvy, a little nerdy, and all heart. Throughout the almost year we worked together to plan the Halloween wedding of my dreams, I never once felt pressured, or misunderstood, and we firmly believe that hiring Natalie saved us more money than she cost. All her recommended vendors were easy to get along with, and fantastic. On the day of the wedding, I felt more relaxed than I thought was possible, and had the best day. So many of our friends called it the best wedding ever, and had such a great time. No detail was too small or idea too big for Natalie. The best wedding decision we made was hiring her.

    Natalie is hands down the best money you could possibly spend on your wedding. We hired Natalie for day of coordination and flowers, but she did so, so much more for us.

    As your day of coordinator, she's a wealth of knowledge. We were a bit overwhelmed with just the logistics of how you're supposed to run a wedding (okay, we know you need to have food, probably music, etc), but she broke down the whole day (and months leading up to it) into todos and fill in the blanks for all the details we needed to cover. As the day of coordinator, we did most of the major planning (the picking and choosing) on our end, but she makes sure you stay on top of things and have all the right details. From that, Natalie put together (seriously, months in advance of the wedding) a minute by minute breakdown of the day. This became our bible and planning because a pretty easy game of fill in the blanks.

    The day of the wedding, thanks to Natalie, we truly just sat back and enjoyed the day. Natalie and her assistants were at the venue from setup to tear down. She worked with all our major venders, particularly our amazing photographers, to communicate the schedule, and everyone of our venders worked together to just pass us from event to event throughout the day. We got to sit back sipping celebratory beers and champagne before the ceremony and just relax. After the ceremony, we turned around to find drinks and food right there waiting for us. All night, Natalie made sure we were being well fed and hydrated, and overall just having a great time.

    In addition to day of coordination, we also worked with Natalie for our florals. With just a few glances via pinterest, she immediately grabbed our aesthetic and created incredible bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony backdrops. She was also amazing in working with our budget. We didn't have a huge floral budget, but you'd never guess that based on how beautiful everything was!!

    We met with Natalie and instantly knew we wanted to work with her.  She was easy to communicate with throughout the entire process-- she got back to us very quickly for any questions or clarifications. We had Natalie do our Day of Coordination and Flowers and both turned out perfectly.  She crafted a detailed, thoughtful timeline for our day with every detail planned out. She was organized and fun to work with the whole time. The day went so smoothly and we enjoyed working with her so much.  She also does AMAZING florals.  We had her do all the flowers and some décor for our wedding and everything was absolutely beautiful! She really captured our style and enhanced the space so much.  You will not be disappointed choosing Natalie, she is the absolute BEST!

    Natalie was the coordinator/designer for our wedding on September 23rd, 2017. During our first meeting with Natalie, she was personable and made us so comfortable. We felt like we had known her for years! We immediately trusted her and knew that she was the perfect person to help us create our dream wedding day. I had seen her portfolio on the Ginger Bee website so I gave her my vision and let her run with it. Everyone at the wedding was absolutely amazed at the turn out. Natalie is extremely creative and professional. She answered all of my questions and had could handle anything we threw at her. I would absolutely recommend Natalie for any event!

    We did our research and even met with a couple other wedding coordinators. From the very beginning we were impressed with Natalie. Throughout the planning process, she was proactive and offered great advice – from vendors to design.

    When the big day arrived, we couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out. The venue and setup was beautiful. More importantly, everything ran smoothly. Our guests had a blast.

    Ginger Bee Events & Planning is HIGHLY recommended.

    We could not have been happier, Natalie was incredible. Natalie was so helpful with the entire process and shared so many great ideas and resources with us. The vendors she recommended were just as great as she was, we had an amazing wedding and it would not have been the same without her. Her detail and focus helped ease our stress leading up the wedding, and most importantly on the day of. Her execution was flawless and if we ever had an issue she handled it, no questions asked and without hesitation. We are so grateful we had her as our planner and now as a friend. My husband and I recommend her to everyone we know who is getting married, she is the best!

    Oh my gosh. What would we have done without Natalie!? Hire her. Seriously. It was the best decision we made during the whole insane wedding process. She is very calm, focused, and organized. She isn’t a super effusive bubbly type of person, which I was very thankful for- it is nice to have a smart, focused person helping you through planning, and I think our vendors took her seriously. She thinks of details I never would have thought of. She emailed vendors directly to ask for clarification on things that I never would have figured out how to ask. She is polite, yet firm with vendors- and listened really well to us. We had a little bit of sticker shock when we started wedding planning, but trust me- Natalie is worth twice the price she charges. I had no idea how much she was going to do for us to help us. Get a wedding planner. Get Natalie to be your wedding planner.

    We wish there was a 6th or 7th star for Natalie. She went above and beyond in coordinating our wedding and the day would never have been what it was without her help. My wife and I had a good idea of what we wanted to accomplish with our wedding and after 9 months of planning we quickly realized we may be in over our head. Enter Natalie who from the very beginning was totally on board with our vision and budget. She was always available for help, replied to all our crazy 1am emails and saved us from more than a couple missteps. While we were drowning in visiting family and last minute DIY projects, Natalie compiled all our vendor's and took care of all the communication for us. She even designed and assembled my wife's beautiful flower crown and bouquet. Natalie is the type of person that you want as a friend not just a wedding coordinator; she's warm, caring, has a great sense of humor, and above all is great at what she does. We couldn't be happier with her!

    Natalie is the best! She did day-of coordination and some kickass flowers and greenery for our April 29th brunch wedding. Working with her was a breeze and she struck the perfect balance between helping us make decisions on our own so that our day was everything we could imagine, and running the show so that we could sit back and focus on getting married. She was a pro at writing the timeline so that things ran smoothly, taking care of set-up and teardown, and coordinating with other vendors so that everyone was on the same page and everything went smoothly. She managed things that we would have never thought of, like making sure vendors had time to eat, packing up all of our leftover food and decorations to go home with us, and moving the party between rooms for ceremony / cocktail hour / brunch and reception so that we didn't even have to lift a finger. And she ran with our very loose description of "pansy colors, and maybe some green?" - she absolutely nailed the vibe we were going for and the flowers and greenery were beautiful, both at the wedding and at our house for the next few weeks. Thanks, Natalie (and Tarah, her assistant coordinator), for helping us relax and make our wedding a fun and memorable party! -- Emily + Nick

    Emily and Nick, I'm SO excited that I got a chance to work with you two! The time we spent planning was always very joyful and I truly loved the "pansy"-themed floral design :) Seriously so fun! Hopefully you guys have a big party in the future so we can work together again! <3

    Natalie was recommended to us by our fantastic photographer, Affinity Photography, and I am so glad that we went with their suggestion. I can't even imagine how we would have pulled off our wedding without her. We originally only wanted her to manage the day-of coordination, but after looking through her website's portfolio and speaking with her early on about her extra services, we also had her handle our floral and some decoration (ceremony arch, table centerpieces with our books and coffee mugs). She took our request for rustic/simple/classic and displayed it beautifully. I had shown her some example images of what I had in mind, but seeing it come to reality the day of still surprised and delighted me.

    We communicated mostly by email and phone, though we did meet a few times: first when we expressed our interest in her, later again mid-way to our date to go over our vision for decor, the timeline, and our vendor list, and again on site to show her the space. In the few months leading up to the wedding, she really amped up her involvement despite the "day-of" designation--if I didn't like control so much, I would have been more than happy to have her handle everything! I absolutely trusted beforehand that our day would go smoothly, and it did. Guests at our wedding told us later that they had never been to a wedding so on schedule and seamless from one section to the next. There was never an awkward waiting period. We always knew where we needed to be and what was happening next. I cannot thank her or recommend her enough! If I ever need to plan any other sort of large dinner or party, she will definitely be my first contact.

    Let us start by saying: We love Natalie, the Ginger Bee! She is organized, thoughtful, has great vendor relationships, and gets stuff done.

    We hired Ginger Bee to be our Day of Coordinator in 2015 for our wedding in July 2016. After working in the nonprofit sector and executing large galas, we knew that a Day of Coordinator would be needed. And Natalie exceeded our expectations in fulfilling this role.

    Natalie was our advocate from the moment we signed the contract. Before the wedding she sent us information about Wedding Expos and accessory tips. She recommended killer vendor suggestions (like our DJ who EVERYONE loved), and offered pitch perfect suggestions for our wedding and was quick to respond to our queries over email and texts.

    Natalie took the lead on constructing our wedding timeline, helped with the decorations and set up, and loaded our parents’ mini-van at the end of the night. She worked with our vendors prior to and throughout the wedding to make sure everyone was on the same page. She attended our rehearsal walkthrough and made sure our vision was executed perfectly the day-of. She took initiative in making executive decisions when things were unclear or ambiguous and did everything with grace and a smile. She was the first one at the venue on our wedding day and the last one to leave.

    Hire Natalie. It will be the best money you’ll spend on your wedding. This is the biggest, most high stakes party you’ll ever throw in your life, so you should hire the woman who will make it run smoothly and make it look effortless. Hire Natalie. Seriously, why are you still reading this review?

    Natalie did full planning and coordination for our wedding in July in West Seattle. Throughout the process Natalie was open to our ideas and had great ideas to share. All of the vendors she helped select were great to work with. From the officiant, to the DJ to our photo booth, we got so many compliments on their work. Natalie uses an online portal to communicate (in addition to phone, emails, and meetings) which really helped to keep me organized on what needed to be done next. The actual wedding went so smoothly, I didn't have to think about a thing other than having a good time. We are very happy we decided to have a planner and went with Ginger Bee!

    Natalie is absolutely amazing at what she does! From our first meeting we knew she was the one for us. She is extremely knowledgable in all aspects of the process, and knew exactly how to accomplish the look and feel we wanted. She walked us through the entire event step by step, and even went above and beyond helping with vendors and any last minute issues like a pro! Natalie also created the most beautiful floral arrangements and helped with all the crucial decision making when we needed it most. We would highly recommend Natalie to any and all who are in need of a wedding/event planner, she is without question the best I've ever seen and worked with! I would do it all over again if I could. 5 stars is not enough.
