I didn't think that I would need a wedding planner, but as soon as I booked KOWE, I was far more grateful that I did, than I ever thought! My husband and I moved to Florida in the middle of planning an Albany NY wedding! Katie O made me feel like I was home the entire time! We Skyped for our initial meeting and she emailed me constantly to keep me up to date with everything. When I was in town for my shower she made sure to meet with me in person. Since Katie herself was already booked on my day I was assigned her Sr. Executive Chelsea. The team of these two pre-wedding and during couldn't have been more perfect. Chelsea was with me in the bridal suite until the last guest left our venue. Assistant Kailee was on-site all day. My family and friends actually got to enjoy the getting ready process and wedding instead of having to worry about details. KOWE was fantastic at that...so much so that we were AHEAD of schedule at some points! No request was too big or too difficult. They allowed me to just drift through the day as a bride! They truly made us "sparkle" all day long. I highly recommend KOWE and her team!

I had the pleasure of working with Katie and her fabulous team specifically Jillian and Norah on the day of my wedding. This was well worth the investment to have peace of mind on the actual day and throughout the last few weeks before. The morning of the wedding one of my vendors called to inform me that the venue was locked and asked me what to do. Without Jillian there my response would have involved panic and tears (it's an emotional day) but instead I was able to calmly hand my phone off to Jillian who took care of everything and I went on sipping my delicious Starbucks coffee (that she brought to the hotel). That's just one example of how amazing it was to have someone there to take care of all the last minute details and disasters. Everyone was extremely professional and friendly. I felt like they really cared about me and my day. I think the best part of the service was the itinerary that was drafted and provided for all involved so that our day flowed perfectly and no one ever felt stressed or rushed. The day really does fly by so fast and I'm so thankful that I didn't have to waste a single moment worrying or problem solving.

Hiring Katie O to do our day of coordination was the single best choice I made in the entire wedding process (other than saying yes when my sweetheart proposed).

From the first moment of our wedding day when Katie arrived with coffee, through getting ready, managing the photos, keeping everything running smoothly through the reception to the end of the night, Katie and Nate were perfect in every way and kept the details out of my head so my husband and I (and our families) could just enjoy the night.
Someone had rented golf carts and left them right out front where we were supposed to walk in, and Nate literally moved them by hand so that our photos wouldn't be disrupted. Katie was there every time I needed something before I even realized that I needed it - lipstick touch-up? there was Katie. My bustle broke? Katie had a safety pin. One of our tables was set for 10 but supposed to seat 12? Katie fixed it before anyone even sat down.
What a perfect night it was! It was literally the best day of my life - and Katie O was a huge part of making it so.

Katie and her team were such a HUGE help planning our wedding,we loved every process and every step that much more cause we had her help. Katie makes you feel like you're the only couple shes working with (even though she has a ton of couples who use her). The day of our wedding went so smoothly thanks to Katie and her team and it was so nice knowing if something did go wrong I would'nt have had to deal with the stress of it!! The quality of work and professionalism with Katie and her team is above and beyond,shes worth every penny and she makes me want to get married again just so I can work with them again :)

Katie and her team were always readily available and easy to contact via email or phone. Most emails had responses that day, sometimes within the hour. She always had multiple suggestions for vendors and did so much behind the scenes to work with them on our behalf. Our entire wedding day we never once looked around and asked, "what are we doing next?" The entire day moved effortlessly for us, but make no mistake that was 100% due to Katie and her team working extremely hard to give us that.

Katie O and her team were absolutely amazing to work with. In terms of weddings and events, they've seen it all and are ready for anything. Calm yet totally organized/prepared - a great presence to have around on your wedding day. While I only signed up for day-of services, Katie O and team were also always very responsive when I had any questions prior to the wedding - from post-wedding brunch ideas to where to get my dress steamed. I really can't say enough great things about them!

I couldn't imagine my wedding day without Katie O'Events by my side.

We can't say enough positive things about Katie O' and her team. We reached out to them for the one day service just to have peace of mind on our big day that if there was anything that needed to be taken care of, we wouldn't have to worry. We knew from our very first meeting with Katie that we were going to be in good hands!

We worked with Chelsea, Meghan and Ana on the day of our wedding and they were all terrific. They were professional, but extremely friendly, helpful and came prepared for anything...even ready to take a sliver out of the groom's hand!

To say the Katie O' team was awesome is an understatement! We loved them!!

We used Katie O Events for Day of Wedding Coordinator. Megan and Carolyn were absolutley fantastic! They kept everything running on time and smoothly and anytheing we needed/ wanted was brought or found by them! Leading up to our wedding, correspondence with them was efficient and timley. They were able to answer our questions and calm any concerns. I would absolutley recommend Katie O Events to anyone that needs a planner- whether it be full planning to Day of Coordinator. I don't think we would have been able to enjoy our day as much as we did without them there!

We cannot say enough how happy we were to have hired the Katie O' Wedding and Events team for Day of Wedding Coordination! At our rehearsal, the night before our wedding, we walked into the church where the wedding was to be held only to find the entire interior of the building covered in scaffolding. Katie immediately approached us and, without hesitation, informed us of our options. With less than 24 hours to go before the wedding, the KOWE team ensured every guest made it to the correct church, contacted all of our vendors, and made the transition to the new church run as smoothly as possible. We cannot even imagine how the situation would have transpired had we not hired the KOWE team! The idea of wedding coordination first came as a recommendation from our photographer and we hired KOWE to alleviate the stress on the bridal party the day of the wedding. After the change of ceremony location, our only thought was how thankful we were to have Katie and her team on our side. Katie and her team handled the change of location like it was nothing, and made sure everything else went off without a hitch. Her upbeat and bubbly personality combined with her extreme attention to detail and organization allowed for our bridal party to enjoy the day of the wedding, regardless of the last minute change of location. We would (and already did!) recommend the KOWE team to any friends/family getting married and have stressed the importance of having wedding coordination. Katie, Chelsea and Kelly: thank you so much for everything and making our wedding day everything we had hoped and dreamed!

Katie and her team were the best investment I chose for my wedding day. Planning a wedding long distance could be very stressful, but Katie helped make it stress free. She provided vendors, an itinerary, reviewed contracts, and more. Chelsea and Veronica were amazing help on the big day and allowed Chip and I to relax and enjoy every moment. I'm so glad Katie shared her "sparkle" on my wedding day!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Katie and her team. They honestly made our day perfect, and I can confidently say it wouldn't have run nearly as smoothly without them. It was a hurricane outside and she and her assistants were armed at all times with what seemed like 10 umbrellas! They were able to keep the entire bridal party dry and photo ready, which I didn't even think would be possible with the sideways rain. And when our photographer wanted to venture out in the high winds and rain, they were right there shielding my husband and I from the elements. We had a larger bridal party too, and Katie handed everyone her card with a personalized itinerary attached so everyone was clear where they had to be/what they had to do and when. And just in case they didn't pay attention to that, they were right there to keep everyone on schedule! They also volunteered to literally do anything we needed them to-- run and get coffee or lunch; check us out of a hotel room... anything! And Katie was on hand prepared for anything with her bride emergency kit/belt. At one point we needed hairspray, a steamer, a permanent marker and scissors, and she had them all! And when we got back to our hotel room that night, they had left a bottle of champagne, two glasses and a sweet note for us. So thoughtful.

They were truly worth the expense and were always upbeat and bubbly and just so positive (great for a bride dealing with a hurricane on her wedding day!) and I would hire them again in a heartbeat! I'll be recommending them to everyone I know.

I cant even begin to but into words how helpful Katie and her team (Jill and Kelly) were both on our wedding day and through the months of planning. From the moment we hired KOWE I felt as though I had someone behind me helping me every step of the way! I generally feel that I am an organized person but Katie put me to shame!!! I felt like everything was under control and when our Trolley company cancelled on us 2 weeks before our wedding the team had found us another transportation option by the end of the day. My husband and I had a HUGE wedding party and they were able to seamlessly organize all 27 of us through hair/makeup, getting dressed, transporting to pictures, and then all to the ceremony at precisely the right time!!! There wasn't a moment during my day that Katie was not there with me keeping me calm, organized and under control. We chose to use the restaurant that I work at as a catering company (not their usual specialty!!!) and Jill worked 1 on 1 with them throughout the day to set up the reception and cocktail hour exactly as we had wanted! When we had an unexpected event at the end of the wedding KOWE even provided transportation to the hospital (it doesn't get much more accomodating than that!!!) As true testament to all that the team did, my husband, who throughout the process had asked why we needed a wedding planner because it seemed like I had everything under control, shut the door to our hotel room at the end of the night, and before saying ANYTHING else said "how did we repay them, they were amazing!!!!!"

With her help, I was able to relax and truly enjoy my wedding day to the fullest! THANK YOU!

We hired Katie for day of coordination, and couldn't have been happier with doing so. I knew all of the vendors I wants to work with prior to working with Katie, so full wedding planning wasn't something we needed in our situation. But day of coordination? Absolutely! There isn't a bride out there that doesn't need her services!

The expertise and piece of mind Katie brings to the table are second to none. She's there for you along the way for advice and recommendations. There are so many choices and decisions to make for your big day, and having a wedding professional on you side helping you make the best decisions is the best.

The week of the wedding , she's there for it all! From your final meeting at your venue, to the rehearsal, to the big day, Katie is there to make sure everything is goes perfect and everyone is at the right place at the right time. For the big day, one of her assistants will be with the guys, making sure they are on time, and all set. This alone is huge, especially with a big wedding party!

I highly recommend Katie O Wedding & Events to everyone I know getting married. It's the most valuable vendor to book, as they will make sure your day is as perfect as you imagined. And in our case, better than we could have dreamed!

The most wonderful part of having KOWE by your side on your wedding day is that it really is the only way you can sit back and relax, knowing that you have someone on your team who will not let anything go wrong, or who will "take care of it" before the news ever reaches you. Katie O' and her staff are professional, warm and personal and understand what you need way more than you do. If weddings were like christmas parties, I would ask KOWE to help me with mine every year.

Katie’s One Special Day package was lifesaving. I planning the wedding myself, but with the benefit of Katie’s periodic advice, guidance, recommendations, and reassurance along the way. Katie then stepped in closer to the wedding to put together a detailed schedule, review contracts, take care of vendor confirmations, and just essentially button everything up.

On the big day, Katie appeared on the scene, and I literally never had another worry from that point forward.

Weddings are complicated. No matter how carefully you plan, little issues pop up continually throughout the day. Especially at a DIY type of venue, if you do NOT have a coordinator, the bride spends her day keeping track of everything and doing all of the unexpected problem-solving. Hiring Katie was the best money we spent, because I didn't have to worry at all. I literally to this day have NO idea what went wrong or had to be fixed during the wedding. When questions arose, people went to Katie. When guests were misdirected by a venue employee and almost saw me BEFORE the ceremony (gasp!!), Katie chased them out. Heaters needing to be moved, confused bus drivers called my cell phone, bridesmaids were starving and needed snacks...HANDLED. Katie is like superwoman. Seriously, she should wear a cape.

And maybe best of all, Katie herself is so wonderful! She brings such a fun, optimistic, warm presence to the wedding. Everybody loved her. She was like part of the family!

People say your wedding day goes by in a blur, and that the details don't ultimately matter because you don't notice them. With Katie around, that's not true at all! Because I was freed up from rushing and worrying, I really did savor every moment, and I remember all of them—from the biggest deals to the tiniest details. This is such an amazing gift, and worth every penny.

When we were planning our wedding, my husband and I knew we wanted to spend the money to get a day-of planner to execute our ideas on our special day. Because we had been engaged for 2-and-a-half years and dating for almost 7, we had plenty of special touches, sentimental moments and must-have ideas. We didn't want our families running around to make sure everything was done correctly, and we didn't want to worry about it either. We chose Katie and her team for her day-of services after a recommendation from our florist and a phone interview. Even my husband was impressed when we met face-to-face with Katie and her assistant Chelsea. By remembering something so simple yet important like my husband's parents are sadly no longer with us from our prior phone conversation, Katie was able to gracefully skip over that awkward moment so my husband didn't have to go through explaining it. He was amazed. Even though we hired them for day-of, they went above and beyond in the weeks leading up to the wedding, from talking me through hotel negotiations, to meeting with the reception vendors two weeks before because they had never worked with them before or seen the venue. The day before I still hadn't heard from my DJ and Chelsea calmed my fears, quickly tracked him down (somehow!) and made sure I wasn't worried about it as I walked into my rehearsal.

Chelsea and her assistant were gracious, friendly and always right there when someone said, "what do we do?" Even something like helping my dad get his tie on the morning of was a huge help and pinning the corsages on the groomsmen. The day also went off on time and Chelsea even kept it from me that we had tornado watches in the area!

My husband and I, and our families and friends, highly recommend Katie O and her fabulous team. You won't be disappointed. We still say, out of all the vendors we hired for the day, their service was the best money spent.

Her work ethic, ability to pay attention to detail, friendliness, efficiency and knowledge of her industry made me confident that we were in good hands.

I can't thank her enough for all her help. The best money we ever spent!

When it came to planning my wedding I was originally going to do everything myself. I am so glad that I decided to call a professional and that Katie O' was the coordinator I called.

Katie was unbelievably helpful, professional, knowledgeable and supportive! I could call her throughout the planning process whenever I needed to and she proactively set up monthly meetings with me and my husband. I really enjoyed the fun part of planning a wedding, finding my own vendors, decorating, tastings etc. The part of planning that really overwhelmed me was day of scheduling and knowing what to ask vendors during vendor meetings. This is where Katie's expertise was invaluable. She attended meetings with me and coordinated with the vendors at the location of my wedding perfectly.

When it came to the actual wedding, she coordinated everything from start to finish. Everyone in my wedding party was impressed with her. I remember my dad walking up to me asking where the "men's" schedule for the day of was. I had no idea what he was talking about until my maid of honor pulled out Katie's business card which had an hour by hour break down of where the wedding party needed to be stapled to the back of it. There was one for the men and one for the women. I was so impressed, what a fabulous idea!! This is just one example of the attention to detail that Katie has. Her and her assistant actually walked around with "tool belts" filled with anything we could possibly need. My hair towards the end of the night was falling and I needed a bobby pin. Katie pulled one out of her "tool belt" and came to the rescue. Any time there was a change that needed to be made throughout the reception she handled it seamlessly.

My husband had been unsure that we needed a wedding planner when we started this process but the night of the wedding he told me that with all of the money we spent on this event, she was hands down the best investment!

Whatever you are looking for from day or coordination all the way to full fledged planning Katie is your girl! She gave us the best gift of the night, the ability to enjoy our wedding!

Katie will make your wedding day run so smoothly, it will be a dream. Katie made our wedding day one of the best days of our lives and we would highly recommend working with her. She is a talented wedding professional with creative and great ideas that will make your day special and unique. It will run like clockwork and you won’t have to worry about the details on your special day. At the same time, Katie is open to ideas and making your day special for you. Her advice leading up to the wedding was invaluable. We felt that the money we spent for Katie to advise us before the wedding and for day of wedding services was money well spent and one of the best wedding investments we made.

Katie O’ was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning, but her professionalism and skillfulness really shone when we had a last minute catastrophe. I believe we gave Katie O’ and her team one of the greatest challenges they’ll ever face! After a year of careful planning, our venue informed us on Friday afternoon that we would not be able to hold our wedding there on Saturday. The entire weekend was supposed to take place at a beautiful estate, and the last minute cancellation meant everything had to change. Katie and her team got to work immediately on finding us new locations, all the while remaining calm, warm, and reassuring. Because we had Katie working on our behalf, we were able to relax and be with our guests. It wasn’t until 10:00pm on Friday evening that they were able to find us a place to hold the wedding, as most venues were already booked, but it was perfect. Not only were they able to find us locations for the wedding, reception and other events of the weekend, they were able to communicate expertly with all of our vendors, so that our wedding weekend actually went very smoothly. We were so impressed, and are forever grateful to Katie and her team for all they did to get us married despite the last-minute setbacks. It couldn’t have been more beautiful.

Originally I opted for a wedding coordinator because I was planning our wedding from a distance. Little did I know at the time Katie O would not only be my saving grace but the best investment we made for our wedding! Passionate, professional, honest, organized, knowledgeable, accommodating, I can go on for hours!

From the moment Katie and her team arrived with lunch, until the minute the reception ended Katie ensured the day flowed smoothly without a hitch. Everyone in our bridal party was in awe of how simply amazing, helpful, friendly and organized she was! As a bride, there are so many thoughts going through your head the day of, it’s nice to know someone is there to handle all the details. I didn’t once have to stress about our transportation (will they show up?) timeline (when is my first look?) where to go or what to do. Katie’s presence allowed us to focus on each other and really enjoy the day celebrating with our friends and family.

There is so much that goes into planning a wedding, and even more behind the scenes the day of! Even the most organized bride can use a little help. Katie’s knowledge and attention to detail are unparalleled! From the details to rehearsal to day of she has it covered!

I strongly urge you to not only hire a coordinator for your special day but work with Katie O! She truly is the best!

My wedding day was seamless thanks to Katie O' and her team...having KO do partial-planning & day of-coordination was exactly what I needed to make sure all my planning was carried out perfectly & allow my bridesmaids, family and I to relax and enjoy the day, without worrying about all the nitty-gritty details. The in-house planner at my venue was, to put it nicely, too careless and easy-going, and it was RELIEVING to have KO on my side - to respond to emails, offer ideas, set up all my knick knacks, come up with a doable schedule, etc. - I never would have wanted to do that and more on the day of, let alone delegate to family and friends. Even my husband, who did very little by way of actually planning was super-impressed and grateful.

I loved working with KOWE! When I first met Katie O', I never imagined that she could turn all of my wedding ideas and dreams into a reality!! She exceeded expectations. If we had to do it all over again we would hire KOWE in a second!

Email: Katie O' is great with emails and even better with text messages! I was a bit of a nervous bride and had about 18 months to plan everything- Katie O' was great at getting back to me and helping me relax. She constantly reassured me that I was on or way ahead of schedule. I also know that giving every bride/couple/person the kind of specialized attention that KOWE does, can not be easy so it was something I appreciated. Times where there were "delays" in detailed responses were few and far between-- and Katie normally sent an email just giving me a heads up about what she had on her plate and letting me know a realistic time frame for getting back to me.

Month of: Katie was really on top of everything! She was in touch with all of my various vendors and helped (them) coordinate arrivals, set up, breakdown, payments, etc.

Week of: Daily emails, phone calls and/or text messages to go over last minute details. My panic attacks-- any and everything! She was very reassuring and even bought the last minute items that I had trouble finding.

Day before: She led an amazing rehearsal and the best part-- she had pre-printed schedules with her contact information for the wedding party!! These cards were (cute!) super helpful and allowed people to know where they had to be, when and let them know they could get in touch with Katie or her assistant at any time!

Day of: Katie O and Carmelina were there from start to finish! EVERYONE was impressed by their friendliness and professionalism! She made sure that everyone was where they needed to be and on time. She even helped with a last minute change to the photography plan (we had two different photographers)! She was with us as the bridal party did hair and make up, while Carmelina checked on the groom and groomsmen! It was just really fun and full of sparkle! I had no idea about anything going on "behind the scenes." The whole day was flawless and Katie was with me and the bridal party every step of the way. It was awesome! If I needed anything -- including a ride to the ceremony-- she was there! She also made sure that my husband and I had a few moments to ourselves through out the night to just take everything in!
**People always say that you don't get a chance to eat-- Katie and Carmelina had plates of food and drinks ready and waiting for us! Same for our dessert and candy bar selections!!

Day after: We had a second ceremony, and after a LATE night, KOWE were ready to go the next morning! It was incredible!!

Cost: My husband and I have been in a combined 10 weddings several of which had "professional" wedding planners. I know that I am biased, but to be perfectly honest after comparing budgets, guests lists, the level and quality of service, Katie O' had the best rates! She was reasonable and I never felt taken advantage of. She also helped me manage my money and helped me cut unnecessary costs (for example: Welcome Bags while nice, when most of your guests are coming from out of town (if they are cute and full of sparkle!) can add a hefty amount to the bill. They aren't necessary or expected!

My husband and I can't say enough about how amazing it was to work with the KOWE team! I would recommend them to anyone and can't wait for more life events/celebrations so that I can work with KOWE again!

Having Katie and her staff on site the day of our wedding was one of the best decisions we made in the planning process. She was always easy to get a hold of, honest and amazingly helpful. If you want to be able to relax and not worry about a thing on your wedding day you need Katie O! I was the last person who thought a wedding coordinator was necessary and now I don't know what we would have done without her!

I expected Katie simply to oversee the details of our big day. But, what I received was a professional expert on every aspect of weddings. Katie was always easy to get a hold of and responded to all of my questions immediately (and I had a lot). When the day arrived, Katie came prepared and organized. She kept our schedule and even gave the wedding party and parents "cheat sheets" so that we would always know what was going on. During the reception I was able to just relax and enjoy, without having to answer vendor questions or coordinate timing. What was amazing was that she did all of this completely behind the scenes; things just seemed to "magically" fall into place because of Katie's hard work and focus. I never imagined all of the details that would need attending to - favors, escort cards, table numbers, gifts, toasting flutes, etc. Katie took care of all these things beautifully. On top of her planning skills, she has a real eye for how to make things look nice. Our favors were set out in such a way that they looked decorative. Little touches like that made our day special and wowed our guests. Katie did so many things for us on our wedding day, from assisting the photographer so he could get the perfect shot, to showing me how to get in and out of that limo in a dress and veil. My husband and I agree that Katie's services were worth every penny (and many more)!

Hiring Katie O as my wedding coordinator was one of the best wedding decisions I made. She was consistently upbeat, reliable, and responsive to our needs. What I loved was that I only had to ask/tell her to take care of something once, and I could both cross it off my own list and know that it was 100% taken care of. She was totally professional and really allowed me to relax and enjoy my wedding day! Even if you don't think you need a wedding planner, you do!!! There's so many minute details that Katie will attend to for you. Even our guests thought she was terrific...several of them got in touch w/ me after our wedding to rave about her. We loved working with Katie and can wholeheartedly recommend her. We only wish that she could come organize our newly married life!!!

I consider myself to be a very organized, “on top of my game” type of person, so I therefore never even considered hiring a coordinator to help me plan my wedding. About a year and a half into my planning process I began having some difficulty communicating with the venue that I had booked. There had been some changes in management and I began to worry about how the day would flow and decided to look into using Katie O’ events. After my very first meeting with Katie O’ I knew that I could definitely benefit from her coordinating services. She asked me questions about my preparations that I hadn’t even begun to think about. I can honestly say, hiring Katie O’ was hands down the best decision (besides of course marrying my husband  ) that I made on wedding day! Knowing that everything was in her hands allowed me to let go, relax, and enjoy every single second of the day. I don’t know how anyone pulls off a wedding without her and as my sister said “Katie O’ is heaven sent!” She is obviously super organized and made sure everyone knew where they had to be and at what time. She took care of delivering welcome bags to the guests hotels, called vendors to confirm times, made sure seating and set-up of the ballroom was done correctly, provided the bridesmaids getting ready suite with a survival kit (that definitely came in handy!), I could go on and on….just call me! Most importantly, having Katie O’ there takes the pressure off of everyone. Wedding day can become so hectic and it’s nice to have someone to lean on and not have to ask your loved ones– who are there to celebrate – to, for example, make sure the groomsmen get to the church on time. It also takes the pressure off of your other vendors (photographer, florist, musicians, etc) and allows them to do the jobs they were hired for and not direct people on where to go next.

Katie O’ was readily available by text, email, phone, or to meet in person to talk about anything that might have come up throughout the planning process. In the end, I felt as though she was one my good friends. Wedding planning is her passion and it is evident in the way she handles your wedding day…you’d think she was part of the family! She truly made me “sparkle” on my wedding day and for that, I will be forever grateful!

Imagine waking up on your wedding day and not having to worry about a thing. That's the kind of service that Katie O' provides. She is an incredible wedding planner! As I told anyone who asked throughout the planning process, Katie kept me sane! Not only does she have fantastic ideas and the skill of keeping everything perfectly in order, it's very clear that she has a true passion for her brides' weddings. It was so nice to have Katie there with me every step of the way... from unloading my house of all the wedding neccessities to get them where they needed to go, to time management on the wedding day, to cleaning the soy sauce off of my gown and fixing my bustle a hundred times, Katie did it all with ease and a smile on her face. If you're considering hiring a wedding planner, don't even think about calling anyone else. Katie O' is simply the best!

How much room do i have to write?!?!?! Katie O was fantastic! She was the best investment I made for my wedding!!! She was kind, courteous, held everyone's attention! She got us through our rehearsal in less then ten minutes, which was miraculous!

On the day of my wedding, while the preparation room was packed with girls and makeup and hair stylists, Katie O finalized everything that was "in the air", made sure that I was calm and relaxed - she even answered my phone for me!!!!

Katie O was a dream! Everyone loved her and people still tell me to this day how great my planner extraordinaire was!

Anyone who has her as their planner is going to have a very smooth, well organized event that is classic, stylish, elegant.

Your party will be the event that all future parties are compared to!

She not only makes all of the planning stress go away - she creates a relaxed, joyful atmosphere the day of the wedding. I didn't have to worry about anything with Katie there.
