Hiring Green Apple Weddings was the best choice I made in the entire scheme of planning. After hiring all my vendors, I realized, I needed someone to execute day of coordination. Green Apple was highly recommended to me by a very detail oriented colleague. After my first phone call with Kate, I knew I had to hire her. Kate and her team provided, clam, clarity, and detail. She asked questions of me I wouldn't have thought to address, she asked questions of my vendors I wouldn't have known to ask. She acted as anchor, and brought clarity to many a situation made difficult by too many cooks in the kitchen, she ran the show day of and took wonderful care of my husband and I. Kate is a strong and calming presence, who was always on call, and available to me, I truly cannot recommend Green Apple enough.

Hiring Kate and her team for our wedding coordination was the BEST decision we could have made! Our wedding was in New York City but we currently live in Texas, so the whole wedding was planned from a distance. I hired Kate a year before the wedding after reading many positive reviews, however we didn't meet until the week before the wedding. During the planning process Kate was quick to respond, detail-oriented, attentive and gave great advice on anything and everything I needed. Being out of state, I had to put a lot of blind faith into the planning and Kate truly exceeded my expectations. Many of my married friends said hiring a good day-of coordinator is the best money you could spend because it allows you and your spouse to relax and enjoy the day without any stress. I now understand the true value of that advice. I'm sure there were hiccups on our wedding day, but I have no idea what they were because Kate was so good at her job! She made our day so special and we can't recommend her enough!

My husband and I are so grateful for everything Kate and her team did for us on our wedding night and through the last year. She went above and beyond and we are so grateful for her help, wisdom and guidance. From helping us with walk-throughs and logistics (what's the best way for tables to be oriented for 200+ people? should we do mom & son dance before or after speeches?) to answering random quirky questions to last-minute emergencies (finding not only a stable chair for my father who was just out of emergency surgery and unable to walk far, but making sure it was where it needed to be for the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner), our wedding would not have been possible without Kate.

I decided very early on that I wanted to use a wedding coordinator on the day of my event. I did not want to be responsible for managing vendors, managing issues, or managing anything on my wedding day. And I didn't want to ask a friend or family member to have that responsibility either. Best decision I made in the whole process.

When I was interviewing coordinators, I immediately clicked with Kate at Green Apple Wedding and Events. Her pricing is reasonable, so it was an easy decision.

Kate offers a variety of services from full coordination, to venue selection, to month-of coordination, and day-of coordination. I hired her only for day-of coordination, but that included consultation and access to her vendor list. I relied on her heavily to provide me with names of recommended vendors. Since she was only our day-of coordinator, that meant that I contacted the vendors, negotiated contracts, etc. For me, that was simple project management, but having a list of pre-approved vendors saved me a ton of time on the research.

Kate was always responsive and helpful leading up to the event. Had I contracted her for more services, I'm sure she'd be even more responsive. She was instrumental in keeping things in line and on track on our wedding day. When one of our officiants was late, she kept calm and provided great insights on how to manage the glitch.

Kate was instrumental in making our wedding day the best day ever. Seriously. She provides a fabulous service, has a wonderful list of vendors, is easy to work with, and is genuinely nice. I'd hire her for any wedding or event I plan in the future.

Kate was everything we had hoped for. I think of the 3 R's when I think of her:
Reliable, Responsive, Really awesome. Not only did she attend to every detail (including removing stubborn stickers from the backs of table signs), but she also provided a fantastic list of other vendors. She was approachable, a pleasure to work with, and hard-working. I would recommend her to any and every one who is having an important affair.

Hiring Kate as a day-of coordinator was absolutely the best decision my family and I made in the planning of my wedding. I could not imagine the day happening without her! Kate is very generous with her time, and is always willing to answer ANY and ALL questions in an e-mail (believe me, we had quite a few!) The day of, she made sure everything stayed on schedule, was set up beautifully, and ran smoothly. My other vendors complimented how organized everything was! The piece of mind I had that day was priceless. I would recommend Kate a million times over.

I don't think my wedding would have been the overwhelming success it was without Kate. She was overly generous with her time and efforts both leading up to the date and during the event. She worked seamlessly with all vendors, and if there had been any issues/drama, she handled it professionally, behind the scenes, and without me ever knowing there might have been something wrong. More than being a competent professional thought--she is just REAL. She is the kind of person you are genuinely happy to be working with. I already recommended her to a friend, and will continue to recommend her to anyone who wants their wedding to be fantastic!

Hiring Green Apple Weddings was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Kate was superb from the beginning. During our first meeting, she demonstrated a strong knowledge of all-things wedding and wedding vendor. I quickly hired her to be a day-of coordinator.

As the months passed, it became clear that we needed more than a day-of coordinator. We live overseas and planning a wedding from half a world away was just too difficult, even though Kate was doing more than I bargained for while on a "day-of" contract. We agreed to increase her contract to half-planning services and it was the smartest decision we made.

Kate was completely responsive and organized at every step of the way. She offered to receive various shipments for me (i.e. decorations, etc bought online), which was HUGELY helpful given that we don't live in NYC. She helped us think through a million details, organized day of transport, referred me to hair/makeup and gown alterations services, musicians and DJs, identified our hotel for out-of-town guests, and assisted with placing orders for beer/soda and dessert. She reconfirmed with all vendors in advance, did multiple walk throughs (1 with us, 1 with photographer, 1 with vendor) and helped to set up a few decorations on the day of. (She put together a phenomenal photo board.) She provided us with unlimited hours of service on the day of the wedding, which I also very much appreciated.

The best part of it all was that she provided us with this service par excellence while maintaining a pleasant and kind demeanor at all times. Kate is experienced with small weddings (like ours - about 45 guests) and with big weddings (250 guests or more). If you are looking for a professional, comprehensive, organized and friendly wedding planner/coordinator that provides personal attention and service at a more than fair price, go with Green Apple Weddings.

We honestly cannot recommend her more highly!

Kate O'Donnell Diaz and her crew are top-flight coordinators. Kate is extremely knowledgeable, warm, and generous with her time. I was particularly grateful for the expertise she was willing to share with me even before I had contracted her to be my wedding coordinator. In a lengthy preliminary phone conversation, she shared numerous tips and recommendations. I hired Kate only to be my day-of coordinator, but she was much more than that. We were in regular contact in the months leading up to my wedding, including a walk-through at my wedding location together. Anyone could benefit from Kate's gracious professionalism. For someone at an usual site--my wedding was at the kooky but lovable Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, where Kate has done dozens of weddings--she may well be indispensable.

Kate was wonderful and very friendly. She did a good job under a lot of pressure and with my extremely large wedding party - it was not easy to direct or trouble shoot every issue. She was very responsive to my questions/emails, created specific plans/run of shows and was very flexible with very short lead time. As an event planner, I was very happy to have Kate in the weeds for me making sure all of the things that could go wrong were addressed by someone other than me on my wedding day. Well worth the pricing, which was very fair and a true value.

I can't recommend Kate from Green Apple any more highly! She was our day of coordinator but she was available to us many months before the wedding. She has a TV production background and it certainly shows- she has it all together, is proactive and leaves no stone unturned. She was also super calm and we always knew and trusted that she was on top of everything and understood our vision. She knows the Metropolitan Building in LIC like the back of her hand...there is no way we should have had the incredible wedding that we did without her. Hands down...best money we spent (She's like finding a pair of Jimmy Choos at Marshals for 20 bucks).

Of all my wedding vendors, Kate was just a no-brainer. At our initial meeting she came off as incredibly well organized, efficient, professional and dedicated to getting my vision executed. With a full time job with hours often stretching into the week end and the late nights and our families not around to help out, I knew I would need someone to help me. In the months leading up to the wedding, Kate reached out once in a while and suggested that we walk through the venue to help her execute on the day of the wedding.
On the few days leading up the wedding, she was available, super responsive (within an hour or two of me emailing her) and just incredibly helpful. She coordinated all the vendors, getting them to arrive on time and basically making sure that everyone was at the right place at the right time. On the day of the wedding, Kate centralized all the vendors' questions and came up to me or my husband only when absolutely necessary making the logistics so easy on us. Kate not only dealt graciously with all the issues that came up (from getting the electricity back up in the guest house to getting our popsicles out while we were dancing to getting my favor table set up) but she executed my instructions to the T and made my vision come through.
My family was raving about her, and my husband who can very critical at times told me that hiring Kate was the best decision we made in this process! I was just so glad to have her in my corner and I highly recommend working with Kate.

My husband and I were married at the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City. The venue is amazing and unique but they do not provide a day of wedding coordinator with the space. Kate's name kept coming up in other reviews so I called her to ask some general questions about working at the MB. She was so generous and helpful with her time I hired her on the spot. Even though we hired her to be our day-of coordinator, Kate was incredibly helpful throughout the entire planning process. In fact, many of the vendors that we hired came from her recommendations. Kate truly went above and beyond. She made everything completely stress free including the day itself. She understood the vision that my husband and I had for our wedding day and executed it impeccably. Wedding planning is stressful and Kate's assistance along the way was invaluable. I can't recommend Kate highly enough!

We hired Kate as our day-of coordinator for our wedding at the Metropolitan Building on June 2nd, and couldn't have been happier with her services. We had tons of questions throughout the planning process, and Kate went above and beyond to answer them all in a thoughtful and thorough manner, and always responded to our emails right away. She was an invaluable resource for us prior to the big day since our venue was somewhat unconventional and Kate had done so many weddings there. We had several in-person meetings and lengthy phone calls prior to our wedding, and she made sure we were 100% comfortable with the run of show, and reassured us when when we raised concerns. On the day of, Kate was on hand from the very beginning to the very end, and ensured that we could enjoy our wedding without worrying about vendors, timing, setup etc. The whole event ran like clockwork, and Kate's calm demeanor and impeccable organization were a great comfort to us throughout the entire planning process and on our wedding day. Kate was by far one of the best (and most reasonably priced) investments we made for our wedding, and we would highly recommend her services to any couple looking for great advice, peace of mind, and a perfectly coordinated wedding day. -Simone and Colin

We had tons of questions throughout the planning process, and Kate went above and beyond to answer them all in a thoughtful and thorough manner, and always responded to our emails right away. She was an invaluable resource for us prior to the big day since our venue was somewhat unconventional and Kate had done so many weddings there. We had several in-person meetings and lengthy phone calls prior to our wedding, and she made sure we were 100% comfortable with the run of show, and reassured us when when we raised concerns. On the day of, Kate was on hand from the very beginning to the very end, and ensured that we could enjoy our wedding without worrying about vendors, timing, setup etc. The whole event ran like clockwork, and Kate's calm demeanor and impeccable organization were a great comfort to us throughout the entire planning process and on our wedding day. Kate was by far one of the best (and most reasonably priced) investments we made for our wedding, and we would highly recommend her services to any couple looking for great advice, peace of mind, and a perfectly coordinated wedding day. -Simone and Colin Read less

Kate helped us plan a Mexican-Irish wedding in NY while we were living in Wisconsin. Even though we we never met her personally until the week of the wedding she was always available on the phone and responded to any issues we had almost immediately. She helped us with ideas when we were not even sure ourselves what exactly we wanted.

The day itself ran flawlessly and Kate was on top of everything. She had worked the venue, the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, many times before and worked seemlessly with the staff on site.

We can't say enough good things about Kate and her company. She was warm, helpful, resourceful and most important for a wedding, efficient.

Kate was wonderful! We hired her for her "day of" services, but she did so much more, meeting with us several times before the event, responding to numerous emails, suggesting vendors, and helping us come up with a schedule for the day itself. She ensured that everything ran smoothly so we could just enjoy ourselves. To this day, I still don't know if anything went awry that day. If you plan to get married at the Metropolitan Building in Long Island City, Green Apple Weddings & Events is a MUST.

Kate and her assistant, Holly are fantastic. I cannot say enough good things about them. For a year, Kate was in touch with me in person and via email--able to answer any and all questions about my wedding...from who to order ice from to when I should play a slideshow. She is top notch and is a MUST for anyone wishing to throw a full blown affair. Our wedding was 110 people and was not traditional in any way. Kate was open to our visions and supported our aesthetic. She was communicative with us about every detail. She even organized everything at the end of the night into a little bag that we could take home. Thank you, Green Apple!

Kate O'Donnell Diaz of Green Apple Weddings & Events was the day-of coordinator for my September 17, 2011 wedding in NYC. Kate was simply excellent throughout the process - she is so organized, knowledgable, thorough and available, not to mention so nice - everything you could ask for in an event coordinator.

Although we hired Kate for day of wedding services she was happy to provide advice throughout our planning process. A month before the wedding, Kate met with us at the venue and walked through our vision for the entire day. Based on that meeting, Kate developed a detailed schedule for our wedding day and contacted each vendor to ensure that everyone was on the same page. On the day of the wedding, Kate arrived with the first vendor and stayed until everything had been packed up at the end of the night. We never had to worry about anything except enjoying ourselves since Kate orchestrated the entire day for us.

Kate was wonderful in delivering our very special day - all with a big smile!

My Husband and I cannot say enough amazing things about Green Apple Weddings -- Kate is absolutely spectacular, and I can't imagine how our wedding would have gone without her!! I'm sure it would have gone, but WOW!

Kate is really friendly, and she was great at reading us, and understanding what we were looking for. She kept us on track with our "theme" throughout the planning process -- always making sure we made decisions that fit well with us, and keeping us on track when we started to stray in to randomness that wouldn't work well for us.

She helped save us a lot of $ through vendors and through knowing great alternatives to "the usual", and she helped us to put together an amazing wedding.

Anytime we had stress, she was easy to get ahold of (even while planning her own wedding, and moving across country), and was great at easing our fears, and dealing with vendors who weren't doing things right or keeping their word.

I cannot say enough good things about Kate and Green Apple Weddings and Events -- the first thing that I recommend to anyone now is to consider hiring an event coordinator.

Kate provided "day of coordination" for my wedding at the Metropolitan Building on May 15, 2011. She made it possible for me to sit back and enjoy my day completely. I literally did not worry about a single thing.
She was also there for every random email I sent when a quesiton popped into my head, or for every minor freak out moment I had, leading up to the wedding.
Not only was getting a coordinator the best decision I could have made, but finding Kate was heaven sent.

She had worked weddings there before and was familiar with the way things worked at the venue, which is VERY different than a catering hall type of venue. She was so helpful in contacting all my vendors right before the wedding and especially helpful the day of. She showed up early in the morning and was there until the very end.....I really don't know how I would have managed if she was not there the day of! Thank-you so much Kate!

Kate is fantastic! From the first day we met, I knew that she completely understood my style and the parts of the planning process that I needed help with. She was always reliable and punctual, and returned all of my emails quickly. She found us an incredible officiant, and made the process of planning a wedding at our slightly quirky venue (The Metropolitan Building) a breeze. Anytime I had a question, she always knew the answer, and she helped me make decisions without imposing her own opinions. The week before and day of the wedding went off without a hitch, and if there were any problems I never heard about them. All my other vendors commented on how great she was to work with. We really appreciate everything she did to help us make our day a perfect one. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

Kate wowed us from the start! She definitely knows how to run a smooth event while allowing us to enjoy our day. She gave valuable insight and recommendations throughout the entire process. She was the first to arrive at the venue and the last person to leave, making sure that everything was completely taken care of. She did everything from calm my now-husband down when I was an hour late with hair and makeup, to confirming with vendors, to pinning on boutonnieres, to remembering to give us lessons on how to walk the aisle while holding parents and flowers, to paying all vendors, to setting up the venue to look exactly like we envisioned. She definitely knows her stuff. She is supportive, professional, talented, enthusiastic, and has a great sense of humor. She truly listened to us and gave as much or as little guidance as was needed. Green Apple Weddings allowed us to be truly present to enjoy our wedding and they far surpassed my expectations. We highly recommend Kate and Green Apple Weddings and Events.

We opted for a less traditional venue and hired Kate for her expertise with that particular location. Looking back, I don't know how we would have accomplished what we did without her assistance. There is so much more to do than one anticipates, and Kate was able to magically make things happen behind the scenes so that we could focus on prepping ourselves and not the space on the day of. She also lent me her ear and shoulder during the months preceding the wedding, reassuring me when things felt out of control that my expectations would be met. And she was right! I highly recommend Kate's services.

Kate was easily the best choice we made when planning our wedding. She was invariably helpful, informative, and responsive to any and all questions and concerns (and, as the wedding approached, my concerns became increasingly oddball and anxious--all of which she handled with tact and grace). She worked tirelessly the day of the wedding (and before that, too) to make sure everything went off without a hitch. She is also just a really great person to be around, which was important to us as we decided what vendors we wanted to be surrounded by the day of the wedding. I'd recommend her to anyone and everyone.

She was extremely organized and helpful during the months leading up to the wedding, and then with us all day on the day of. She was a calming prescence during the planning, while reminding us of all the important little details that we needed to remember. She was always extremely prompt in her correspondance, and helpful in giving advice. She was open to new ideas and suggestions and excited to execute them.

We got to know Kate really well during the planning and by our wedding day she felt like a close friend. It was great to have her at the rehearsal dinner so we could introduce her to our family and bridal party - everyone felt comfortable with her in charge. Kate was particularly helpful because of her knowledge of the Metropolitan Building - she has worked there many times and knows exactly how to put everything together there. Kate would be a wonderful addition to any wedding's vendor team. She certainly comes highly recommended!

I highly recommend Kate O'Donnell's services for your wedding and party organizations. She was the day planner of my wedding and a henna party the evening before. I feel lucky not only to have Kate's professionalism and very detail oriented approach in the preparations but also her naturalness and flow in hosting. No need to say both of my events went flawless and all guests were very delighted. Kate is very resourceful, proactive and also a great communicator, and a listener...all that you can expect from a planner. Kate helped me to find the best henna artist in town for the henna night, offered insight and options on every level and resolved all potential conflicts with vendors, band etc. without any tension during my wedding. I was truly impressed with her responsiveness getting back to me on all questions within minutes. She spotted all lose ends and stepped in to take care of them quickly, often going beyond her day of the event planning responsibilities. If you chose Kate O'Donnell's services you will feel your needs will be taken care with utmost respect, care and attention and you will be able to enjoy, even your own wedding...

What can I say! Kate and her staff at Green Apple Weddings went above and beyond the call of duty. They were amazing - like family by the end! Professional, always willing to go the extra mile, willing to listen as I stressed about small details, kind, generous. I can't say enough about them. While I hired Kate as my day of coordinator, we had several meetings before the day of the wedding and thousands of emails. She provided expert advice and support as I was finishing up the final details, giving me much more than just help on the day of the wedding. She really made sure that I stayed on schedule with my planning. The day of the wedding went so smoothly. I didn't have to worry about a thing. They were always one step ahead. The wedding was the best day of my life and it was fantastic to be able to enjoy it and not have to think about a single detail. I can't thank them enough.

Kate at Green Apple kept me sane during my engagement year!!! What set Kate apart... is that she just cared, plain and simple, and she just 'got us'. She took the time to get to know us, and i really really felt like we 'were in it together'. She was not pushy or 'type A' the way that other planners were at the initial meeting. She just listened to what we wanted and was excited to go through the journey with us. There was no detail too small or too big for Kate. I always felt like we were her first and only client because she was enthusiastic about absolutely EVERYTHING!!! And then.... her professionalism and expertise came through when she would say.... "oh, i've done a couple weddings here, i'll talk to ______ for you", or she would offer creative solutions to problems that inevitably arise. Green Apple is also unbelievably cost effective! Let's face it, the costs associated with having a wedding are so inflated, that it's criminal!!! Green Apple is the only vendor that we had where i felt like we were UNDERpaying and getting more value than we anticipated.

After talking with other wedding planners in the beginning, i really felt like i would have just rather plan our own wedding than have to deal with a planner who didnt see our vision, but having gone through it, there is now way i would have done it without Green Apple.

I've since recommended Green Apple to every friend of ours getting married in this area, and i like to check in on Kate every couple of months just to say hello.

Kate of Green Apple Weddings is not just wonderful, but for us was a gift as well as huge eye opener. My husband and I are both creative, very hands on & self-sufficient. We hoped to create our entire wedding on our own - from our vows to flower arrangements.. all the way down to our handmade guest book. We booked a cozy little restaurant with a gorgeous garden for the night and figured all we would need to do is fill it with our loved ones, great music, food and decorations. Yes, those are the essentials but once the ball got rolling it dawned on us that we needed extra help the day of our wedding. When we got closer to the actual day and met with Kate it was clear that a bit more than 'day of' coordination would be better and that working with Kate would give us the opportunity to be in the moment leading up to our wedding and really infuse our celebration with our personalities. Something we are *SO* glad we did!

Kate is creative, wonderfully resourceful and after seeing her handle a few curve balls the day of our wedding I'd like to add that she is *unflappable*. Aside from her ease of coordinating & combining our ideas with the logistics of our space & resources (no easy task!), Kate contributed many excellent ideas that created a smooth flow of events and tied everything together. Little details that came our way ahead of time were never problems, always challenges for which she had simple solutions. Bigger details that came our way during our wedding were smoothly handled without our knowledge or involvement - rain & thunder of epic proportions forced a handful of significant last minute changes that Kate wrangled without anyone noticing.

It's true, your wedding day goes by so quickly.. I can't imagine spending any of that precious time doing anything but celebrating with Dave and our family & friends. Everyone had the best time and Dave and I were able to have our ceremony in the garden.. our biggest wish!

We're very grateful for having met & worked with Kate!
