There literally is not enough enough space here to say everything I want to about Katie Joga of Pure Whimsy, so I’m writing in bullets. *Her advice and timeline made the planning so doable and easy, and kept my mom from worrying, too! *She was always available to answer any questions with expert advice, and we never felt like we were bothering her or that she couldn’t handle anything we threw at her *Her use of basecamp software kept all documents, timelines, and conversations organized and easy *She worked well with my mother, but also always put my preferences first *She has exceptional knowledge of vendors (our vendor team was an all-star lineup of outstanding professionals!), budgets, timelines, etiquette, day of organization, and helped us make choices that we were super grateful to have made later! *She is so organized, kind, and fun to work with- even all of my vendors loved working with her! *Her visual sense of style and judgement was spot on *she understood and accommodated my chronic illness perfectly *She was also so spot on for day of coordination- it was so smooth and stress free. She kept us in the moment on our wedding day and we remembered and enjoyed our day, unlike most of our married friends *Couldn’t possibly have done a better job- everyone commented on how organized and great she was and asked for her contact info! Thank you so much for everything, Katie!

We are so thankful that we chose to hire Katie to help plan and coordinate our big day! She was already very familiar with our venue (which was a huge plus) and was beyond organized, which was something that was important to us when we were looking for a wedding planner. She was very responsive to all of our calls and emails and knew all of the answers to any questions that we had. She put together the most incredible timeline for the weekend to help keep everyone on schedule, which was a must as this was a destination wedding for most of our guests. She recommended several amazing vendors and had lots of suggestions on how to add in little touches to make our wedding special (her idea to have a food truck for late night bites was her best idea for sure!) A few weeks before our wedding, she took over handling our entire vendor team so that we could relax and be as stress free as possible. She managed everything the day of, and if anything went wrong, we still don't know about it! Katie is amazing and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great planner! Thank you Katie!

Katie far exceeded any expectations my wife and I could have imagined for a wedding planner. From the first meeting with her, it was clear that Katie was organized, experienced, and passionate about making sure our wedding went exactly how we envisioned it. Over the course of our roughly 18-month engagement, Katie could not have been more attentive to our needs. She laid out the schedule (managed through basecamp) for both our tasks and hers, and was always quick to respond to our questions. I would say one of her biggest strengths was in helping us fill in the gaps in our vision for the big day and knowing which questions to ask vendors and ourselves when it came to design preferences. She even made sure to reach out when it looked like we were starting to fall behind on our tasks, which we certainly needed. She always had stellar recommendations for vendors but never pressured us to actually take her recommendation. We learned quickly that when Katie recommends someone, they're probably the right fit for the job :) While I can't sing Katie's praises enough for her guidance in planning the wedding, she was unbelievable on the day-of. When we needed to resort to the rain plan- every bride's worst fear- Katie coordinated all the necessary changes with our vendors and made sure that set-up flowed smoothly. We have since had a few guests that thought the rain plan was our original plan all along! Of all the choices that went into planning our wedding, hiring Katie was the best decision we made, period. You will not regret it!

My mom and I were blessed to stumble upon Katie in our search for a Wedding Planner. She provided us with her superpowers for full planning, design, and decor- and as a result, we had the Dream Wedding we'd always wanted!! She streamlined the whole process of wedding planning and took care of all the details that make the whole ordeal overwhelming at times. She reviewed contracts, found incredible vendors, set up appointments, managed our budget, became our eyes & ears double checking details and sites when we moved away, and so much more! All while still focusing on what I envisioned for our wedding day. I truly trusted and connected with her because -from the smallest details to the biggest- she made sure everything stayed true to my vision. And I wasn't one of those brides that had every detail already planned out- in fact, I needed A LOT of help filling in the gaps. But once we had a general outline, Katie provided so many options that were amazing that I no longer felt worried about not knowing what to do. I got to enjoy the fun part of just simply choosing an option and letting everyone use their creative direction. That's another aspect that was such a blessing- she has so many great contacts and vendor relationships that if Katie vouches for them, you immediately trust them as well. Everyone worked so well together and then Katie made sure the entire wedding ceremony and reception was cohesive, seamless, and (these were our visionary words) warm, cozy, and romantic.... AND SUCH A BLAST! We received so many compliments about the wedding experience from our guests! It was such a joy to just be in the moment on our wedding day and not have to worry about anything else. Katie took care of EVERYTHING. This review doesn't allow enough characters for me to keep singing her praises- she is truly a blessing and we couldn't have done this without her! Hands down she is the best wedding decision to make- besides selecting the groom ;) We love you Katie!

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 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 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 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!
