Katie is AMAZING!!!!!!! We hired her for month-of coordination and she gave us so much more. We booked her early in our planning, probably a year prior to our wedding. She was always available for questions and vendor suggestions when I couldn't narrow down our options and she recommended the BEST DJ [Craig Wood]. Katie does not let any detail go untouched and is open to everything. My dad had super-secret speech hilarity planned and she helped it go off without a hitch! A major win: we did not want champagne for toasting on the tables and when we sat down for dinner they were there. I told Katie and she handled it so that we did not have to pay for the champagne. She worked amazingly well with our venue coordinators and with our Priest. I can't recommend her enough. We gladly would have paid triple her fee for how amazing she is. I also definitely now count her as a friend :-)

I can honestly say the best purchase my husband and I made for our wedding day was Katie Joga at Pure Whimsy. We hired Katie for Day of Coordination and she was phenomenal!

Katie impressed us from the very start by truly getting an understanding of us and what we wanted our day to be about. She is willing to help out with tough decisions and go on vendor meetings (which is extremely beneficial because there are so many aspects that we had not even thought about that Katie had brought to our attention.) In fact, on our final meeting at our Venue our Venue Coordinator was so impressed with Katie, the timeline she created and her organization that the Venue coordinator had asked Katie for her details for her own wedding

Leading up to the wedding, Katie continuously checked in with us to see if there was anything she could do to take any stress away. In addition, she had been in contact with all of the vendors so everyone knew when, where and what to expect.

The whole day went off without a hitch. I literally had people after the wedding telling me that it was the smoothest wedding they had ever been to. Even my bridesmaids (which we all know can be a tough job) told me they felt the day literally had no stress and that they felt that was a direct correlation of having Katie there.

Most importantly I truly felt that Katie understood what we wanted from our wedding day and relayed that message accordingly to the vendors. After the big day we both felt that there wasn't a thing that could have gone better on the wedding -- the reason being, Katie. Katie's organization, clear experience, willingness to go above and beyond and truly understanding what we wanted made her invaluable to us!

We truly would recommend Katie to anyone who is in need of Wedding Planning or Day of Coordination -- She is amazing!

If anyone out there is looking for a magician/angel/professional wedding extraordinaire - then please hire Katie Joga with Pure Whimsy Events to help you with your wedding planning needs. From the very moment I met her at our 1on1 interview, I knew immediately that we would work very well together, and that she was on top of her game. I didn't have to think twice before deciding that I would hire her. The 2 biggest things (among what feels like a billion other things) that drew me in were 1-How kind and genuine she was. She clearly loves what she does and wants the best for all of her brides. 2-The e-tools she brought to the table. PWE provides really detailed and well executed excel & google doc spreadsheets to help you easily track your progress/payments/to-do's/vendor contact info/etc. You also get access to a really awesome online progress tracking site called BaseCamp to really stay on top of everything that you have to do. Even though I only hired PWE for the "Month Of" services, it still felt like I had a full on planner for the entire year of planning time - as Katie was ALWAYS there if I ever had any questions or need for advisement/etc.
Once the clock ticker was counting down the months/days and we were in the home-stretch, I felt so at peace and at ease with everything we had on the table with our to-do's with our vendors, because Katie took all of the stress out of correspondence with vendors and careful review of their contracts/etc. I never once felt like I was going to pull my hair out or have a fit. Not only did I feel like I had an extremely efficient and organized planner, but I also had a friend to tackle all the last minute items with. On the day of, Katie and her assistant were on point. I was able to enjoy EVERY.SINGLE.SECOND of my wedding, and I was really able to soak it all in. I really think that is THE most important part. Thank you Katie from the bottom of my heart for making my day the MOST special day of my life.

If anyone out there is looking for a magician/angel/professional wedding extraordinaire - then please hire Katie Joga with Pure Whimsy Events to help you with your wedding planning needs. From the very moment I met her at our 1on1 interview, I knew immediately that we would work very well together, and that she was on top of her game. I didn't have to think twice before deciding that I would hire her. The 2 biggest things (among what feels like a billion other things) that drew me in were 1-How kind and genuine she was. She clearly loves what she does and wants the best for all of her brides. 2-The e-tools she brought to the table. PWE provides really detailed and well executed excel & google doc spreadsheets to help you easily track your progress/payments/to-do's/vendor contact info/etc. You also get access to a really awesome online progress tracking site called BaseCamp to really stay on top of everything that you have to do. Even though I only hired PWE for the "Month Of" services, it still felt like I had a full on planner for the entire year of planning time - as Katie was ALWAYS there if I ever had any questions or need for advisement/etc.

Katie and her staff were absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond what we expected. The day of the wedding, they took care of every single detail. During our wedding planning, my husband and I had grand plans for our wedding decorations and Katie and her staff turned our ideas into the perfect wedding we had hoped for.

From the first time I contacted her, Katie responded within minutes while other vendors took days to respond. She maintained this level of professionalism through our wedding and even after our wedding she has still been here for us. She was prepared for every single detail from suggestions on vendors and ways to save on the budget, to having the smallest details covered such as having pins for when the buttons for my bustle broke.

Katie's attention to detail made our wedding stress-free. With every wedding I've been to or in, I've always seen something go wrong. But I can honestly say that because of Katie, our wedding went off without a hitch. My fiance suggested that I hire a wedding planner for day of coordination, which was the best idea. If I hadn't hired Katie, I wouldn't have thought of all the small details that ensured our wedding went so smoothly. She was the single best investment that we made - without her, we wouldn't have been able to relax and enjoy our wedding.

Katie, who runs Pure Whimsy, is the ultimate wedding planner. She knows her stuff about venues and vendors in the DC area; drives a hard bargain to get her clients great deals; has good relationships with amazing photographers, florists, DJs, and caterers; and (possibly most important) she is very sweet and funny and the kind of person you want to be friends with. She kept a constant eye on our budget and kept us at or under it. And she did an amazing job at making my vision of the wedding into reality. Our wedding ceremony and reception were gorgeous thanks to Katie's great ideas and flawless execution on the day of the wedding.

When my husband and I first met Katie to discuss the possibility of her being our wedding planner, she told me that she would be my best friend over the next 10 months leading up to the wedding. She was right -- I relied on her for wedding design ideas and feedback, for emotional support when I was stressed or overwhelmed, and for backup with vendors. My husband, who was against hiring a wedding planner because he thought it was a waste of money, has said many times that hiring Katie was well worth the money and one of the best decisions we made. I don't know how I would have gotten through all of the planning without her and am so happy we picked her to help us plan such an important day.

When my wife and I were in the beginning of our wedding planning process, we had an argument where I was insistent that we did not need a wedding coordinator. This will now live forever in the book of "I was wrong and you were right" arguments, and truthfully, I couldn't be happier for it.

Within around 30 seconds of speaking with Katie we knew she was absolutely perfect for us. She is infectiously enthusiastic, incredibly detail oriented, and has the type of assertively-friendly personality you want in the person who's job is to make sure your big day goes perfectly. From the day that we booked Katie, she played the roles of sounding board, therapist, and project manager. Perhaps most importantly pre-wedding, she helped us navigate the waters of making important decisions and negotiating with vendors. When our lighting and decor vendor fell through, she immediately had the right person for us (and we were extended a discount!). Four days before the wedding when our escort cards disappeared in the mail, she took care of it in a heartbeat.

When it came to the Wedding Day, we were relaxed as could be knowing that we were in the best hands. Everything went completely perfectly as planned, but the comfort came in knowing that if there is the slightest glitch, Katie would have solved it long before we or our guest would have even noticed. Now being several months married, I can easily say that working with Katie was the best money spent. So good in fact, I'm even willing to tolerate a life-time of "Told you so..." from my wife.

My husband and I hired Pure Whimsy Events for the day of coordination of our wedding (September 20, 2014). After several months of planing with Katie, we asked her to take on the additional task of planning our complicated rehearsal dinner (which was a wine tour of Fauquier County, VA complete with transportation to/from Arlington, VA). Katie blew both the wedding coordination and rehearsal dinner out of the water!!! She is extremely professional, responsive, and will truly be "on your side" as you negotiate with additional vendors. She really cares about your wedding and on top of that, she is so easy to work with! Katie went above and beyond to fit in an extra walk through at our venue a week before our wedding when we weren't comfortable with our caterer's timeline and wanted some extra time to go through it all. She also went above and beyond to ensure that we could bring our dog on the charter bus for our wine tour! Katie also worked with two very difficult vendors (our venue and our caterer) for our wedding, and she did so with complete professionalism and handled last minute problems without adding stress to us. As for the day of execution of our wedding, I can honestly say our wedding would not have run on time or run as smoothly as it did if I were not for Katie. We had a lot of moving parts including 4 different transportation options and she handled everything with ease. As I look back on my wedding weekend I am still realizing things that Katie managed without me even knowing (such as getting my personal items out - veil, shoes, etc - for the photographer to shoot while also making sure I got to my first look on time). If we didn't have Katie for our wedding weekend we would have had a completely disaster of a wedding! Thank you Katie and Pure Whimsy Events!

If I could give Pure Whimsy more than 5 stars, I would. I simply cannot say enough good things about this wedding planner. I would not have had the wedding of my dreams without Katie.
Katie was available to me as much as I needed her to be, and for whatever I needed her to do. If I'd tried to organize such a big event without help, I would've drowned in stress. But with Katie, wedding planning was fun.
When I was considering whether to hire a wedding planner, I worried that such a person would try to impose their own vision on my wedding, but that was not at all the case. Katie was 100% dedicated to making this wedding happen the way my husband and I envisioned, and she succeeded beyond what I'd even hoped for.
I'm one of those people who's been fantasizing about her wedding since childhood, and with Katie's help, my wedding really was a dream come true. I looked and felt like a fairy tale princess, and got rave reviews from the guests, who were awed by the beauty of the event and who had a fabulous time.
If you're worried about the cost of hiring a wedding planner, trust me - Pure Whimsy is worth every penny. For example, the caterer we chose gave us a major discount because of their professional relationship with Pure Whimsy. Katie also saved me so much time, like how I never had to bother playing phone tag with vendors.
Katie's dedication, conscientiousness, experience, and ability make her a superlative wedding planner.

I cannot recommend Katie J. enough! If you are looking for a professional, detail orientated, responsive, reliable and fun Day of Coordinator, Katie is amazing. She helped us with whatever we needed and made our day run so smooth and stress free. She takes care of all the little things you don’t even realize you need to do and takes the stress off the bride and groom and family. She keeps everything running on time and without stress. I had two friends use Katie and recommend her and my husband and I could not have been happier!! My husband who works in marketing and conference management thought Katie’s event skills were great. I really wanted someone who responded to our questions and concerns and Katie is on email 24/7. It was great to know she was always there when we needed her. She also recommended our amazing string quartet and is well networked. Our families also thought she was amazing. I’m so sad our wedding is over because that means we no longer will get to communicate with Katie however we have recommended her to several friends and would recommend her to anyone in need of a fabulous DoC!!
