Kate Miller Events™
HUGE thank you to Kate and her team for making it all happen for us. Not only is Kate incredibly organized, but she really took the time to get to know us and our style. She made fantastic suggestions when she felt they were welcome or especially important, but never tried to force anything on us or talk us into something we weren't comfortable with. I can't begin to explain how great it felt to trust her 100% and know that everything was under control on our wedding day. Every aspect was taken care of, down to the smallest detail, and my husband and I never once worried about a single thing. She glued my sister/maid of honor's eyelashes back on when they started to peel off after the ceremony, she brought me an assortment of granola bars when she overheard me whisper to my husband-to-be that I was hungry during family photos, she brought all of our gorgeous flowers and candles up to our hotel room after the reception so that we'd have a beautiful room to come back to... and I know that as soon as we get all the photographs back, we'll see detail after detail that we missed that day and be so grateful for! Because of her, we were able to just truly relax and enjoy a beautiful day with the people we love most. Thank you again, Kate - we'll let you know when it's time to throw a vow renewal party!
Dear Kate - Thank you for making my daughter's wedding an exquisite experience. Everything was perfectly romantic, flawlessly executed, and your leadership made all that happen. As Mom of the Bride, I didn't feel like I had to do a thing - and everything you did was on time, purposeful, and done with a huge smile on the faces of you and your team. I would not hesitate in giving a huge endorsement of your services - from start to the end.... Many thanks.
Planning a wedding is something most men rarely do. Most husbands-to-be allow their brides-to-be do all the planning. Girlfriends are called up, mother and mother-in-law pick out china patterns, and a gaggle of ladies plan to their hearts content. The men, in my experience, simply must provide the occasional yes or no.
So when two men decide to get married and neither one has the wedding planning gene... well, they need to get a little help.
Enter Kate Miller, who quickly took the hands of two somewhat misanthropic grooms and helped them put on what had to be one of the most amazing weddings ever conceived. While I can stress up a storm at the drop of a hat and my partner is a tad forgetful, she was able to actively engage us and get to know us both as a couple and as individuals.
We knew right away she was the right choice when at our very first meeting she helped us figure out our budget. We were on a tight one. She was able to explain what parts of the kind of wedding we wanted to do were necessary and what wasn't, and she kept us realistic about what we could do. That might sound rather blah, but because she made thing so financially clear she was able to provide multiple options that still got us what we wanted, or helped us find even better options we hadn't thought of before.
In addition, Kate also used plenty of technology to keep things organized. Her team uses a dashboard on their server that allowed us to send messages, assign tasks, share documents, review vendor orders, and keep us on task with timely checklists that kept us on task for what needed doing and when. Kate was always on time with what she needed to do, and kept us on time for the things we needed to do (get suits tailored, send out cards, etc.).
Come the day of there was no stress at all. We knew that Kate was on site and that everything would be handled beautifully. And it was.
I cannot recommend Kate and her team enough. She will ensure that your wedding is perfect.
With all the energy and emotion of Amanda and Mike's wedding day, I didn't get a chance to thank you personally for all that you did to make it a success. My family and I would like to express our gratitude to you for your part in making Amanda and Mike's wedding such a wonderful memory. Your coordination of vendors and attention to the details of the wedding was amazing. The wedding site and all the decorations that Amanda wanted were very beautifully arranged. Your staff was very efficient, thoughtful and helpful through the entire celebration. I know the inclement weather was a challenge, but your experience and calm demeanor allowed our guests to enjoy the food and music without interruption.
One of the memories that will remain of the wedding is how many times your staff patiently tossed plastic tarps over the vintage furniture and removed them when a ray of sun broke through the clouds and my glimpse of you in your "garbage bag" attire to protect against the rain.
My sincere thanks for your efforts and genuine concern for Amanda and Mike and our family and guests at the HideOut wedding last Saturday. I will certainly recommend you to anyone I know who is planning a destination wedding.
My wedding was absolutely amazing and beautiful and I couldn't of done it without Kate. Kate and her team are wonderful, so nice and helpful. Kate took my vision and made it come to life. I never had any worry day of the wedding and it gave me such ease knowing she was there. My wedding was perfect thanks to Kate and her team!!
From the first email Kate was not only responsive but helpful before I even hired her as my wedding planner. She impressed me with her organization with the first meeting and how well she listened. I loved her honest opinions and overall helpfulness. I went into my wedding not sure if I truly needed a wedding planner but when all is said and done, I was so happy and grateful to have Kate and Samantha in my corner. They offered great advice, solutions and resources.
I am so happy that I chose Kate and Samantha to help me- I did meet with quite a few other wedding planners - and I know I made the right decision. The were absolutely an essential part to our successful and stress free event. I can not thank them enough for everything they did.
There are so many wonderful things I can say about Kate and her team. I am in love with her. She made planning my wedding so easy! The thing I love most about this awesome woman is her ability to take all of a brides crazy ideas and make them beautiful, organized and relatable. She also recommended almost all of my vendors, who all ended up being so delightful! I would highly highly recommend Kate Miller Events to any bride, she will keep you sane and make your wedding exquisite and unforgettable!
Kate Miller and her team is amazing. I'm a project and events manager myself and I'm pretty hard to please - but Kate and her team exceeded my expectations.
Kate has been absolutely wonderful to work with throughout the entire wedding cycle - she was professional, responsive, and flexible. She resolved issues fast and effectively. She would always be so helpful in terms of looking for alternative solutions and cost effective but excellent vendors/items, as well as communicating with everyone involved. Early on, I've learned to trust her experience, instinct, and taste.
Everyone raved about our wedding - from the logistics to the decor. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding coordinator!!! :)
We love you Kate!
Kate Miller Events is top of the line. Kate did an amazing job of organizing our daughter's wedding day so that we could just enjoy the experience of it all. We hired Kate for "day of" services and it was worth every penny. The wedding unfolded before us and it was wonderful. Kate's timing and organization made it happen as our daughter had envisioned her wedding. Kate also designed our daughter's invitations and they fit right in with the colors and themes our daughter wanted. A million thanks to Kate!
KME helped us plan our entire wedding, from start to finish. Kate's professionalism, creativity, dedication, style and knowledge of all things wedding were evident in everything we planned together. We relied on Kate and her staff for a great deal, and they absolutely helped make our wedding the best it could be!
Kate Miller Events provided "Day of" coordination for our backyard wedding. She went above and beyond what I could have imagined in orchestrating fantastic and organized day. Kate and her assistants were very receptive to my and my family's wants and needs. I live in Southern California, and Kate was so flexible in setting meetings that worked with my schedule while I was in NorCal. I am grateful to have hired her as she is exactly what brides (and the mothers of the bride and groom) need on their wedding day. She really helped in making my vision come to fruition. THANK YOU!!!
Definitely worth every single dollar! It was so wonderful working with Kate. She was VERY professional and so quick to respond to questions/concerns - such a wonderful thing when you are dealing with so many different vendors. She was very quick to help me with any problems I had and took care of it without me having to worry about a single thing. I couldn't have made it through without her! If I could do it over again, she would be the one single vendor I would hire again in a heart beat. LOVED HER!!!
Kate is absolutely amazing – I cannot say enough about her! I hired her for my wedding in March 2011. From the very beginning she set out to make sure that my wedding was all that I had envisioned. With her creativity she took my vision and carried it through all the way to the tiniest detail, all while helping us to keep on budget. She not only gave us impeccable vendor recommendations and resources, but also helped us to negotiate the best contracts with the vendors to ensure that everything fit exactly what we needed. Any time I had any questions or concerns, she would respond immediately and put my mind at ease. In the weeks/days leading up to the wedding we had some issues with our venue but Kate immediately stepped in to take care of things. I can honestly say the planning of my wedding was completely stress-free because of her.
When it came to the day of the wedding I was in awe of her organization! The day-of she not only coordinated and met with all the vendors arriving at the venue but was also in touch with the family and wedding party to ensure everyone knew exactly what was going on and where they needed to be at all times. After the wedding she stayed after to make sure everything was cleaned up, sent back to the appropriate places, and gifts were delivered to the designated room. If there were any hiccups the day-of (which I’m sure there were), I did not know of them. It was her number one goal to make sure I did not have to worry about anything and that I just enjoyed it!
Kate is extremely professional and will make you feel like you are her only client. Because of her, I had the most amazing wedding! I can’t thank her enough for everything she did - I would hire her again in a heartbeat!
Thank you so much for making such an important day in our lives so memorable. Your planning was impeccable and you certainly know your job. We were so impressed with how organized everything was and the timelines you created. There was no guess work on the wedding day (or before). We were most impressed how well you dealt with all the vendors. Last minute issues were taken care of by you and took the stress off us and the bride. The ceremony and reception went off without incident! Kristen and Jon couldn't have had a lovelier wedding. Kristen's last comment was "I couldn't have imagined anything more beautiful and perfect." Certainly words that parents of the bride want to hear! We can't thank you enough for EVERYTHING! You are amazing!!!
I hired Kate in late December for my wedding on May 1st. She whipped together the wedding of my dreams in 4 months. I literally had nothing to do but relax two weeks before my wedding and it was fabulous and unexpected. I kept thinking "Why is this so easy?" In the movies it always looks like a nightmare! I couldn't believe how calm and organized I was (total thanks to her). I met Kate by chance through a client and was so lucky - it was fate! She has excellent communication skills and is extremely responsive. She always has the brides interest first and takes on all of the difficult conversations with vendors with professionalism and ease. She took all of my concerns and ideas seriously and supported my position when dealing with vendor issues and venue rules. If there was a problem she always had a creative solution that made everybody happy. The money spent on Kate's services for pre-wedding planning and day of services were extremely well spent. Kate has excellent check lists and web based tools for easy planning and communication. She has thought of everything! She helped me value engineer my wedding to get what I wanted at the lowest possible price without skimping on quality. Kate has a million resources for ribbons, design ideas, paper, decor materials, fabric, favors - you name it. She can even make your invitations, programs, menus and signs HERSELf. Just ask her about her "Luxecuts" - OMG. She has great taste and is knowledgeable about new trends and is ahead of the curve on design. She tells you where to get the most impact and is an expert in timing and entertaining guests so they enjoy themselves. You won't get a cookie cutter wedding with her! She has great vendor references for photography and other things and has very high standards for the people she works with. She expects a lot out of vendors and is very well liked by them! She put together a great timeline for my entire wedding party and family and everyone knew where they were supposed to be and I didn't have to do a thing! The wedding went so smooth and perfect it was just awesome. I hate to think what it would have been like without her - really. But, I'm so glad I don't have to! I would highly recommend her. I was able to enjoy my wedding weekend like a pampered guest not a frantic host. I am so happy. One hundred thumbs up from me, my new husband, my family and guests!
I don't even know how to write a review on Kate. She and her assistant were beyond all expectation!
Let me start by saying that I am admittedly never satisfied. I'm critical, hard on people, the type of person with unrealistic expectations. It is extremely rare for me to say that someone is perfect at what they do...
Somehow, I found Kate. And from the moment I came into contact with her, I knew she was the type of person who would never let me down. It's very rare for me to trust anyone to do something better than I think I could do it on my own, and that is why I was hesitant to hire a wedding coordinator. But Kate blew my mind. I hired her as a day-of-coordinator, as that is what my budget allowed. But Kate became SO much more than that. She is willing to do whatever it takes to make sure that your event goes exactly the way you want it. She is painfully anal (sorry but this word is appropriate here), and I think that's exactly what is needed in a great wedding coordinator. She was professional, kind, energetic and best of all, completely able to grasp my vision for the day.
From her amazing client website, vendor correspondence, check lists, day of timeline, graphic design skills, to her thoughtful reminders-she left NOTHING undone.
The ONLY reason that I was able to thoroughly enjoy our wedding day was because of Kate. Because she had earned my trust with her talent, I was able to completely relax and take in every moment. I still can't believe that. I NEVEr get to do that!!! It was amazing and I just can't imagine how it would have gone without her!
I would recommend Kate to anyone without any doubt that she will give 110% to everything she does!
As a new bride to be I was overwhelmed and panic stricken as we had decided on a three month engagement. I was in need of the little purple pill of wedding coordinators – something organic, something non-synthetic (lol) – the answer came in a posh and trendy little potion called Kate Miller! I was working full time and going to school – my brain was full and I needed someone to help me generate ideas…and basically do just about everything. I knew my Scottish groom and my Russian heritage would be a challenge to anyone, but Kate handled it beautifully. Not only did she navigate all the traditions and mores of a fusion wedding, but she did it with style and grace (and shhhh! within a conservative budget!). She took care of all the contracts (she understands them), vendors (she knows all the best) and any negotiations, saving both my money and sanity. To say she had a challenge would be an understatement. Kate is technologically savvy, which was instrumental in the seamless execution of our amazing wedding day. From bridesmaids dresses to beautifully designed invitations (which she designed herself), and every small minute detail, she blew me away with her creative brilliance and originality. Like any other girl, I wanted my wedding to be beautiful, original, classy -- and most of all, an ethereal memory for all my guests, my family, and my beloved husband.
I consider KME to be the luckiest thing to happen to me on my wedding day…other than, of course, falling madly deeply in love with my husband. Kate Miller, thank you times infinity!
I don't have enough nice things to say about Kate! She completely saved my life when it came to our wedding.
As soon as we decided that we would have a backyard wedding I knew that a coordinator was a must!
Kate went above and beyond our every expectation & because of her our wedding was amazing. I felt 100% secure in her every decision - she is AMAZING at what she does. Not only did she design the exact wedding I had invisioned, she made everything about the day of flow seamlessly. It literally did not even cross my mind to be worried about anything on the day of our wedding. I was just able to sip champagne and relax :)
Without a doubt, Kate was the best decision we made regarding our wedding. It scares me to think what it could have been had we not hired her!
It all starts with love. Then the ring. Then the date. Then the options seem endless. Almost too endless. What's a girl to do when planning her wedding? To be honest, all I knew was that I found the groom. Other than that, I didn't have a plan or any grasp on how to plan the wedding of my dreams. Then along came Kate Miller Events. In a bride's terms: a little bit of manna from heaven perfectly packaged into the black-rimmed glasses, smartly-fashioned, oh-so-sophisticated Kate Miller.
This little firecracker of a wedding coordinator puts Miss Manners herself to shame. To say the least, my wedding day went off without a hitch! Well, despite the actually "hitching" of the groom & I! Kate Miller outdid herself; my wedding day flowed seamlessly, as if it were straight out of a fairytale. From the moment I walked through those 2 doors, I left every care behind. I knew Kate was on it! From the flowers, to the candles, to the programs, to the website, to the rehearsal; honestly, I can't begin to list the features of Kate Miller Events. Kate listens to the bride, finds out exactly what it is that bride wants, & she gets it done. Without any if's, and's, or but's. After first meeting with Kate, I knew I could trust this dynamo with the most special day of my life. Her can-do approach to any requests is impressive, not to mention her ability to come back at you with bigger & better ideas! I could not have imagined trying to plan a wedding without Kate.
It's funny; people keep asking me the high's & lows of my wedding day but I only have highs! I loved every minute of our special day & I know I have Kate Miller to thank for so much of it. Thank you, Kate!
My STD's were amazing. I'm still receiving compliments on them! People keep teasing me that if that was just the STD, they can't wait to see the wedding. It really helped me kick of our wedding celebration in the way I had hoped! Thank you so much for your assistance.
I just wanted to thank you for all you did at our wedding. You really helped to keep things on time...to have the right people at the right place at the right time. I'm so glad we hired you. We both feel that the wedding went REALLY well, and now we have some great memories from the day! It was nice to know that if we had a question or didn't know where to go/be, we could always just ask you. Thank you also for all you did in helping me to consolidate ideas and form opinions for how my wedding should be. I really felt that you offered a nice blend between being creative and yet practical. I never felt you were pushy or unable to change gears. You were great!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I could have not made this shower as perfect as it IS without your help. I am sooo happy! I did a pre-setup last night...TOTALLY CUTE!! You did an amazing job.

Kate makes my job as a photographer a blast because every detail is done perfectly. From the smallest moment to the biggest she has everything ready and absolutely stunning. She is an incredible talent who is incredible under pressure. I have never been to a wedding that went more smoothly than the one I shot with her. I hope to work with her lots in the future.
