If we could give DFW more than 5 stars, we would. Nicole was recommended by our venue, and came through in a big way. From our first meeting, she was organized, easy to contact, and had great suggestions for wedding planning amateurs. She took over all vendor coordination, and helped us develop an awesome day-of timeline that kept everything running smoothly. I truly believe that Nicole and the DFW team allowed us to enjoy our wedding and stay in the moment- we were confident that things would run smoothly in their very capable hands.

We worked with Katie and Nicole and we are so thankful that we hired them! Initially, we did not anticipate hiring a wedding coordinator at all, but as our big day drew nearer, we started to worry about who would handle all of the details of our wedding on the big day. We brought on DFW one month prior to our wedding and it was one of the best decisions that we made throughout the wedding planning process. Both Katie and Nicole were a complete pleasure to work with and made sure that our wedding went smoothly and was a stress-free amazing experience. In particular, if you are getting married at the Franklin Institute, which was our venue, hiring DFW is a must. Katie is very experienced and really knows the staff and the logistics there, which was a huge help. DFW also helped with our lighting, as their sister company does beautiful event designs as well. Thank you Katie, Nicole and DFW for helping to make our wedding the best day ever!

Katie and Luke are, in my humble and happily-wedded opinion, magicians! Connecting with us from our very first meeting, we were instantly confident that we wanted to work with them to plan our special day. Over the span of 3 months, Katie and her team diligently, patiently and creatively helped us realize the vision for a simple, elegant and fun wedding and reception. They worked with our vision and greatly improved it for a very traditional Indian ceremony followed by a gorgeously personalized reception at the Ben Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA. In addition to fabulous decor, lighting, sound, centerpieces, etc. and organizing logistics for transportation of our guests and belongings back and forth between the hotel and the venue, Katie went above and beyond in making sure we were happy, comfortable and enjoyed every minute of the process and day. From making sure the water bottles for the welcome boxes had perfectly centered custom labels attached to mailing in our marriage license after the ceremony, we couldn't have asked for more. Anyone would be lucky to have the DFW Planning team involved in their wedding!

We hired Katie for helping us keep on track during the planning of the wedding. Each month she would let us know what was needed for the upcoming months and gave us recommendations for various vendors . She was there for any questions we had during the planning, checked our contracts, kept in touch with vendors especially the last couple months before the big day. Was with us the entire day of the wedding with her assistant to take care of keeping everything organized. Katie has an upbeat personality and is very calming. She handles everything very professionally. Great to work with and highly recommended.

"Wow", is about all I can say about DFW Event Planning. Planning a wedding from 3000 miles away was challenging and as we got closer to the event - we knew we needed to have someone help us. DFW to the rescue. 4 weeks before the wedding and our lighting vendor wanted to do everything verbal with no contract and wouldn't meet before the event. When you're spending almost $10,000 on lighting that simply doesn't work. DFW was able to secure a new lighting company who was happy to meet before the event and had fantastic ideas about how to achieve our desired results. DFW was there to handle everything we needed and we couldn't have done it without them. If you're reading this review, congratulations - you've just found the BEST Wedding Planner in the Philadelphia area. Hire them now!

We cannot say enough about Katie and her staff. From the first day we met with her we knew we were in great hands. Not only did she plan the perfect night for us but she did it WITH us. She listened to what we wanted, and what we didn’t want. She was patient, understanding, and supportive. When we were looking for vendors, she found the right people for us to work with. When the big day came we knew that everything would run smooth and we were right. We were able to enjoy every minute of our big day with not a single worry. Having Katie and DFW plan our wedding was the best decision we ever made.

I've put off writing this review because I can't even put into words how much Katie did for us throughout the wedding planning process. I met with several other wedding planners, but did not feel comfortable until we met Katie. We had fun from our very first meeting, and she continued to make planning fun through the last minute of our wedding.

We had already booked our venue prior to hiring Katie, but she helped us select every other vendor from there on out. She knows almost every vendor in the area, and will help you find the best at a great price. If you're thinking you can't afford a wedding planner, you're wrong. Katie more than made up for her own fees by negotiating contracts with vendors for us and helping us find great vendors within our budget. She was incredibly patient as I had a very difficult time with each decision (I'm super indecisive).

When you book with Katie, she doesn't charge by the phone call or meeting. She will be there to help you every step of the way. I called her at all random times, and with ridiculous questions and she was always there for me. And with every phone call, she made me laugh and I knew that everything would be fine with my wedding. She even dealt with my crazy mother, and her personality allows her to deal with even the most difficult people.

Everybody said on the day of my wedding, I was the most relaxed bride. That's all thanks to Katie - I didn't have a single worry on the day of my wedding. I know little things went wrong, but she and her staff handled anything that came up and I didn't even have to know about it. If you're reading this review, you can stop hunting around. Just call Katie - you will be in good hands.

Katie was a great wedding planner!! I would choose her again in a heart beat. I will be the first to admit that I was not the easiest bride, but Katie worked with me and she was always, always there for me. There were times when I had no idea what I wanted and Katie really helped me to navigate the crazy world of wedding planning. She offered advice with professionalism and kindness. Katie also just knows her stuff. On the day of the wedding everything was PERFECT. The day could not have gone better. We really were guests at our own wedding. Katie is also just a cool down to earth kinda girl. She is fun, she knows weddings, and she will take great care of you!

Ohh, and one more thing....Her husband Luke is pretty great too. His team did our lighting and it looked GREAT.

Katie and Luke are a fabulous team!

One day I was talking to a random girl in the nail salon about my wedding and she told me the best thing she ever did for her wedding was hire a day of wedding planner. She was very convincing and her words stuck in my head throughout my planning process. When it came time to look for a wedding planner I searched on wedding wire and came across Katie. I did interview her and 3 other planners; my fiancé and I knew right away that Katie was the one. Well, like the girl at the nail salon said it was the best thing I ever did. Katie was amazing! She took care of so many details that I didn’t even know about until after the wedding and was there to go above and beyond for whatever I asked. I cannot speak anymore highly of her to friends and family. I never write reviews but she is worth writing a review for. Do yourself a favor and hire Katie; I know all my friends are going to after my experience… even if I have to pay for her myself for them!
