Katie Lee from Bella Destinee was just simply awesome! My wife & I are still to this day so thankful & lucky we had chosen the perfect wedding planner. We were at first skeptical hiring a planner thinking we didn't need one but wow were we wrong! Katie literally became our best friend. She worked so hard in making sure we had our dream wedding come true, and so it did! Katie is very professional & extremely timely & organized. She is always quick to reply to all our emails & calls. From day one we instantly felt her energy & we all shared the same ambitions for our BIG day. When we're all together there is so much energy & after each meeting with her we are reminded how confident we are that our wedding day will be so perfect.
On the day of the wedding, Katie & her assistants completely shined. They worked so hard in preparing & setting everything up! I always thought wedding planners would just project manage but no, they get down & dirty with the preparations. They were all hands on! Many of our guests recognized all their efforts & hard working that day & was amazed how organized the timeline was. My wife & I seriously do not know how we would have survived if we never had a friend to take care of everything for us. Katie is simply amazing & we are so blessed to have her as our friend.
I'd like to also mention, Katie had designed & created a surprise dessert table arrangement along with our florist "Design by Ashley" for us! It was so beautiful! We absolutely love her passion & attention to detail with everything.

I secretly add soju to some of my recipes.Manhattan
10/20/2011 Katie Lee and Bella Destinee was not what i expected and this is why i cant not recommend her or her company.
Considering that we had already contacted and paid most if not all of our outstanding vendors, Katie was really only in charge for the actual wedding day.
At first she comes off as a hard working planner who is professional & extremely organized. all calls were returned promply as well as emails.
We were confindent that we could trust her with our special day.
However, these are several examples of why her service seemed very lack luster and unprofessional the day of my event.
She was very short and rude to our makeup and hair vendors, and making remarks that were so unprofessional.
She gave the photograpers incorrect information on where and when they could shoot on the grounds of the hotel and adjacent golf course,
so we ended up walking out there and back for nothing, then shooting later
She did not promply assist our muscians when some wind issues came up, and they needed the hotels help. I ended up going down and talking with the hotel.
Before the wedding march was starting, i personally saw how rude her assistants were at directing my guest to our venue.
They did not even bother to direct them to the grooms side seating and brides side seating so it was all mixed.
When a guest asked where the restroom was located, in a very rude manner told her the "bathrooms that way" and pointed her finger.
I was shocked, but bit my tongue as i was about to walk out with the officant.
Afterwards, we had guest just standing around, they did not direct my guest to go upstairs to the cocktail reception.
Katie and her staff failed to get come get us for the reception enterance. We came down ourselves feeling something was wrong. good thing we did, they came running up as we came down saying "we were just gonna get you".
Katie and her staff failed to go over the seating chart to confim everyone was seated in the correct seats before we arrived for the grand enterance.
Katie and her staff failed to retrieve hundreands of dollars worth of items from our reception and were told that we should call the florist,
hotel, etc as we were ready to go on our honeymoon.
Our special vows that we wrote for each other was given to Katie and NEVER returned.
Considering that a few thousand is the price of her service. I dont personally feel that we really recieved anything special from Katie Lee and Bella Destinee.
Thank goodness that all of our other Wonderful vendors were able to make up for her short comings.
BTW she wants all cashiers checks or cash made out in her name.
that should have tipped me off./// hmmm uncle sam may not be happymore »
