about katie

read MORe

"Katie was a joy to work with and helped bring a sense of calm to what normally could be a very chaotic and stressful process. Knowing she was in charge of everything on the day of my wedding allowed me to focus on being relaxed and having fun."

"She was not only extremely kind and cheerful, but also hard working and extremely responsive. It was wonderful working with her rather than a very large wedding planning company because we felt like we got to know her on a personal level."

"If you want someone who will make you feel as important as you hope to on and before your wedding day, who has experience planning not only their own gorgeous wedding, but others as well, then Katie is perfect for you."

"katie made a lot of suggestions but didn't pressure me to do things HER way. She made me feel comfortable and always shed light on ideas that I hadn't even thought of."
