Find LGBTQ-Friendly Wedding Vendors

Wedding Planner in 20186

I want to work with you from the very start. After years of planning weddings-- big and small-- I have found collaborating and growing with a couple from the beginning is the best way to create a day that goes smoothly for all. 

Simply said: I want to be your partner in this. 

I will be there to help you choose amazing vendors, make tough decisions, and really treat your guests to an unforgettable day. I handle all of it-- contracts, emails, appointments, quotes-- so you can enjoy the fun parts of this process and not feel burnt out on your big day! I believe you deserve to have a VIP experience while planning your wedding and I won’t give you any less.

I couldn't have planned my wedding without Katie. I loved working with her. She kept me on track, and her guidance along the way was invaluable. People kept telling me what a calm bride I was, but I really had nothing to worry about. Katie was on top of everything, and she and her team did a great job on the day of the wedding to make everything perfect. Thank you, Katie!

Katie was the first planner I had a meeting with, and as soon as I met her, I knew this was the gal for me! She was so professional, knowledgeable, calming, and friendly that I didn’t even consider anyone else. She immediately set up an organized timeline using a great app called Basecamp. We always knew what was next on the list and when it needed to be done. The most BRILLIANT part of it all was her décor and design process. Katie asked me, “If you could describe your wedding in three words, what would those words be?” I answered, “farm fairy chic!” The average person (let alone the average wedding planner) would not know what in the world I meant, but Katie totally seemed to read my mind. With only a few extra questions and some pictures of examples that were close to what I wanted, Katie wielded her magic wand and took us on an adventure to meet some of the most amazing vendors. Her network of vendors was INCREDIBLE, and there is no way we could have found these talented people without her. On the day of our wedding, we felt as though we had stepped into the most beautiful, elegant dream. My in-laws’ already stunning farm was somehow made even more gorgeous—everything covered in soft blush flowers, flowing greenery, flickering candles, sweet vintage accessories, and twinkling lights. Pure Whimsy Events lived up to its name, because it truly was like a whimsical, woodland fairytale. To give you an idea of how awed people were by the design of the wedding, several of my husband’s fraternity brothers came up to me, unprompted, and asked, “Who is your wedding planner?! How can I have a wedding like this?!” These were SINGLE men asking me these questions! Apart from her organization, effectiveness, and killer design skills, Katie helped make the day of the wedding go super smoothly. I knew Katie would be taking care of everything, so I could just breathe and enjoy the day! In short, you want, no, you NEED Katie!

Katie was a fabulous wedding planner! We had a large, formal wedding, and I never could have handled all the details even with the hotel coordinator. Her constant communication with me, the bride, and the vendors, allowed us all to really enjoy the day when it came. Everyone mentioned how relaxed and happy I was:) This is because I was! I knew every detail or problem that would arise would be handled by her team. Worth every penny. Excellent service!

Katie was nothing short of amazing. She was knowledgeable and helpful right from the start, always going above and beyond. Not only did she help with handling the main vendors, but she was always available to bounce ideas off of or offer suggestions. Katie's level of organization left this "type A" bride confident since I could not handle everything on my own. I don't know what I would have done without her. Katie and her team made sure everything went off flawlessly so that my husband and I could just enjoy our wedding without stress. I could not recommend Pure Whimsy Events enough!

Katie is total pro. She came highly recommended by our venue, and her expertise and insight made us feel confident and relaxed every step of the way. Her thoughtful approach in the months/weeks leading up to the wedding included simple checklists and manageable goals, so we knew everything had been considered. On the wedding day, Katie and her three assistants had absolutely every detail covered. Most importantly, she made us feel so comfortable all the way through it, that we (and our parents!) could relax and enjoy ourselves, which we did immensely.

Katie is simply fantastic. She not only knows the ins and outs of event coordination and planning, but she really knows how to make sure the bride and groom (and their parents!) are able to enjoy their special day. We completely trusted that no detail was overlooked and that all of our guests were taken care of. Katie's expertise mixed with our personal touches worked well together to create a truly unforgettable day ...plus, my husband and I actually got to eat dinner at our own wedding! Perhaps most memorably, Katie worked with our wedding party to pull of an incredible surprise at the end of our ceremony where some wonderful, talented, musical friends led our guests in a surprise serenade of "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" - the perfect personal touch to our perfect day!

Katie is an exceptional wedding planner and just a wonderful person. I truly cannot imagine anyone better. Her incredible attention to detail and her ability to balance a million moving pieces with seemingly effortless ease made us feel confident our wedding was in good hands from start to finish. With Katie’s expert guidance, we were able relax, enjoy the process, and make decisions quickly and easily. Her positivity was infectious throughout and we really appreciated how excited she was about our ideas, no matter how hard or different. Our vision was her vision every step of the way. We were continually amazed at her willingness to go the extra mile - she went above and beyond in so many ways to make sure our wedding went off without a hitch, and I know we only saw a tiny fraction of what she was doing behind the scenes. On our wedding day, every last detail was taken care of, and we were able to relax and enjoy it. Above all, she made the whole process fun. Katie is worth every penny and more - we could not have done it without her. If she ever takes on a role as a Life Planner, we're signing a contract immediately! :) Thank you, Katie!

Let me just say if you are looking for a wedding planner Katie and her team are the way to go. My wife and I had scheduled a few meetings to pick the wedding planner that would work best for us. We met with one prior to meeting Katie and from our first meeting with Katie it was meant to be. She is so down to earth and you when talking with her we felt like we have known her forever. That feeling made us say look this is like a friend planning our wedding and our friend would never let you down. So we canceled our other meetings and went with Katie. Katie and her team did not let us down. She was available for questions throughout the year of planning. She would even check in and see where we were at and give her advice. Personally I loved her honest advice and feedback and she was key in helping us select our vendors when we get it down to our final three. She has this amazing talent of being professional but real. That she will give her advice on things like decor, music, flowers etc. not because it is her job but because she has a passion for it and wants your day to be perfect. The day of our wedding I have heard how brides are sick with worry... not us we were enjoying the day with friends getting ready knowing that we had a stellar team on our side and Katie was in charge and had it all under control.

AMAZING! I was not much of a planner, and Katie did an amazing job at advising me on productive ways to spend my money. We had a large wedding and Katie was on top of everything. She was especially helpful at making sure both full families felt heard, yet keeping the vision my now-husband and I wanted. I got to enjoy my wedding day with zero set up or worry! I HIGHLY recommend Katie for all planning purposes.

When we began the wedding planning process my friend Melissa, who had hired Katie for her own wedding, said that Katie was the most valuable money she spent on the wedding. After working with Katie for my own wedding I wholeheartedly agree, that the peace of mind she brings to the wedding planning process and the day of the wedding is the best money you can possibly spend on your wedding! I highly recommend Katie's phone and email support and her wedding organization program, Base Camp is a life saver! I loved how Base Camp helps you see a timeline of everything you have to do and when you need to do it. That was far more valuable to me in getting organized than any of the online planning guides I saw on the internet. What's so wonderful about working with Katie is that she's a calm professional with extensive experience to help you navigate all the millions of questions that you have and help you make sense of each step of the planning process. Katie also went above and beyond with helping me feel comfortable and confidant on my wedding day- even coming to my dress fitting so she could be my reliable helper in getting the bustle done correctly on the day of the wedding. Not only does she make you feel comfortable but she becomes your friend. I felt so trusting of her and I valued her opinion. She's also really fun to work with, she gets down to business on calls and meetings but it's with laughter and ease that makes you feel like you're working with a friend you've known for many years. Having Katie by your side on the day of the wedding gives you the confidence to completely enjoy you wedding and know that it’s all going to go smoothly.She was even able to help calm some challenging family dynamics to make sure everyone felt comfortable. Having this peace of mind is so important on your wedding day. Thank you, Katie, you are invaluable!

I honestly don't even know where to start because Katie is amazing beyond words. Everyone always said to me you have to hire a day of wedding coordinator so that you are not the one worrying about things on the day of your wedding. They were so right! I'm just so thankful that we got the best one out there. Our venue, Stone Tower Winery, recommended her, and we couldn't be more appreciative. Her reviews were beyond amazing and her sample timeline spoke to my slight obsession with organization, and we knew we had to have her. We hired Katie as our day of coordinator, but what she provides you with is way more than that. She is there to answer any questions from the moment you hire her. Every vendor recommendation she gave us was spot on! 2 - 3 months prior to the wedding she meets with you to make your day of timeline. Her precision to detail in this is amazing. She lets you know exactly what time everything will happen, when to leave to get somewhere on time, which person will take care of each task, and more! 2 weeks prior to the wedding she contacts every vendor for you to confirm everything. I couldn't imagine having to do that work ourselves. Though, what is most amazing about Katie is how she really makes sure she understands what you want for your wedding and her dedication to make that happen. I didn't quite love how our tables were coming together for the reception but it was 2 weeks out and we didn't want to spend any more money so we decided to be okay with it (none of this unbeknownst to Katie). Then a week prior to wedding Katie emailed me with her thoughts about the pictures I had sent of how the tables would be set and how we could make it more fit our vision. She got to work and by the end of the day we made some changes that fit our budget and made us so happy. The compliments on our tables were endless! Katie will make your wedding dreams come true without stress. She is the best money you will spend on your wedding!
