Thank you again for the amazing job you did on our daughters wedding. Originally we had thought about trying to do the whole thing ourselves and boy I am glad we found you! You turned what could have easily been a very stressful day into a day that my husband and I were able to sit back and enjoy! I remember you telling me that problems would surely come up throughout the day and your job was to make sure we didn’t even have to know about them. You truly kept your promise! You were prepared for pretty much any kind of crisis. Having an out of town wedding we thought was going to be such a challenge, but you made everything come together. You have such an eye for detail and thought of so many things that we hadn’t. We will forever be grateful to you for pulling off such an amazing day!

With both my fiancé and I having demanding careers, trying to find the time to plan our perfect wedding was a daunting task! We decided to hire a wedding planner, but wanted to find someone with a sense of humor, who was easy to work with, professional, not to mention let us have a small hand in the planning as well! Thankfully, we found Katie, who had all of those qualities and more! Katie had acquired many contacts over her years in the business, and provided fantastic suggestions on where to find the best prices at the highest quality for every detail of our wedding. I have often told people that the amount of money she saved us by knowing where to go, more then covered the cost of hiring her!
Katie was with us every step of the way from the initial planning session to the tossing of the bouquet! I receive numerous compliments from our guest who observed her in action! We consider ourselves blessed to have had the privilege of working with someone who translated our vision with such style, grace and professionalism.

Thank you so much for all of your help. I get so many compliments about you and Mandy; how nice you guys were and how good everything worked out. It was amazing. Again, Johnny and I were so happy that you were there. I can't thank you enough.

What can I say about Katie and Festivities. I absolutely loved working with Katie. She was amazing throughout our entire wedding planning. I truly do not know what I would have done without her. She made the wedding planning experience so easy and relaxing. Our special day was calm and so special, all because of Katie and her team.
I can't thank Katie enough!!

Katie was fantastic. My husband and I hired her as a wedding day coordinator and my only regret is that we didn't hire her sooner. She was warm, friendly, professional and full of ideas. Our venue was outdoors and it poured rain on our wedding day; Katie made sure that everything was beautiful and ran smoothly despite the uncooperative weather. She was a pleasure to work with in the days leading up to the wedding and on the day of, and we felt completely confident leaving details in her hands. In the weeks since our wedding, many of our friends and family have also said what a wonderful job she did. We were so grateful for her help, and couldn't have been happier. Thanks, Katie!!

I am the girl who dreamed about my wedding since I was a kid so when the time came to start planning I knew it would be beneficial to have a wedding planner but I was struggling with my budget so I wasn't sure I could make it happen. I happened to see a contest for a day of coordinator and decided to take a chance and I won. From the moment that we met Katie she made us feel so comfortable. I had alot of ideas but not alot of organization and over 7 months Katie met with us regularly to help with ideas and planning out all the small details of the day. These meetings often ended up with us chatting with Katie about many different conversations and going into our special day we felt a friendship with Katie. Well... even with everything I thought I knew about weddings I was not fully prepared for the wedding day. Katie and her assistant, Mandy helped with everything from decorating the reception site to checking in on us to make sure we were ok and managing our time as well as handling all of the issues that came up. And there were many. I had no idea going in how many things can go wrong and how fast- from losing our best man and keeping our guests occupied for the 45 minutes we were waiting to enter our reception, the cake being hours late, the venue wanting us to end an hour earlier than we planned. I'm sure there's more. Katie and Mandy handled all of the issues and our guests didn't realize anything was wrong. They worked hard to keep us calm during these issues as well and I fully trusted that they would make sure everything was ok. I would not have been able to handle these things on my own and I would have been stressed out and not gotten to enjoy this special day. Now I can't imagine not hiring Festivities for a party. If i had to go back and do it again Festivities would be my number 1 priority when considering my budget and I'd figure everything else out around that. I will recommend Katie and Mandy to anyone I know that is getting married. Thank you!
