    Amazing Planner, Kind, Organized, Worth It!

    Katie was an absolute dream to have plan our wedding. From the time we met her to the time of our wedding, it was seamless. She is kind, nice, thoughtful, super prepared and easy to get along with. Everything with our wedding seemed to be going great until Covid-19 hit and everything went up in the air. Katie was always positive and there to help and listen when we didn’t know what to do with our wedding. When we decided to continue with our wedding (cutting our guest list from 230 to 9 people and changing our venue), Katie supported us through that decision and was there to help us continue with our plans.

    Leading up to the wedding, Katie provided input into vendors and took charge of dealing with all of the vendors, scheduling, and easing any of our concerns. Katie dealt with all of the last-minute details (picking up flowers and taking them to the cake maker, printing out our vows on beautiful paper etc.), and was always there if we texted her asking for help, which allowed us to enjoy the weeks and days leading up to the wedding.

    On the wedding day, Katie arrived early with a smile on her face ready to help and organize (and she brought pastries for everyone too). Katie helped with everything! She helped hang flowers garlands, set up seating, pinned table cloths so they wouldn’t fly off, she brought her own weight for a table we were using outdoors (it was windy) and more. She always seemed to be one step ahead. My mom hasn’t stopped telling people about how much she helped and how she always seemed to know exactly what needed to be done before anyone else did. Katie came super prepared with garden shears, scissors, glue to put the vows in cards I had made, and even hand lotion that I only asked for 30 minutes before the ceremony started because my hands were swollen from the heat and we were worried about getting my ring on. Who knows what else she brought with her but I’m assuming she had it because she was so well prepared.

    Katie stayed until the end of the night and helped tidy up and send my husband and I off. My mom couldn't believe when she went upstairs after everyone left and the carpet we used for the ceremony was put back exactly where it came from...I can't remember if anyone actually told her where it came from but she was figured it out!

    We cannot thank Katie enough for everything she did for us and the service she provided. She is one of a kind and we would refer her to anyone looking for a kind, smart, very well prepared, hard worker like Katie to plan their wedding or event. We promise you that you will not be disappointed with your decision.

    Katie & Co. Occasions's reply:

    Thank you so much, Lise! It was truly a pleasure working with you. Although your wedding was very different than originally conceptualized due to the pandemic, it was such a beautiful, intimate celebration that I felt honoured to be a part of.

    Thorough, Professional and Calming

    We were extremely happy with the services of Katie & Co.! Katie exceeded all our expectations for an experienced wedding/event planner. From the first time we met, Katie helped guide our planning process by providing templates and checklists for us to complete.
    Katie's project management approach to 'day of' planning was very reassuring and enabled our wedding day to go without a hitch. Katie's services greatly reduced the stress of our wedding day and allowed us to focus on enjoying the day as it unfolded.
    She was a pleasure to work with and we cannot recommend her services highly enough!!

    Absolutely amazing to enjoy a perfect intimate wedding!

    Katie did a fantastic job helping us with our special day. Thanks to Katie, we both managed to remain calm and relaxed with the knowledge that we were in safe hands. We trusted her for all her recommendations of makeup artist, photographer, caterer etc. She was on site since the early morning of our big day, making sure everything was on track behind the scene. Everyone commented the décor by DEBUT was spectacular, food and free flow of cocktails and wines were awesome. Our celebrant also appreciated the meticulous timelines she made. We’d definitely recommend such a professional wedding planner to couples who want a magical wedding!

    Awesome Wedding Planner!

    Thank you Katie for being so instrumental in making our wedding go off without a hitch. The planning process was so easy. Katie was well prepared, filled us in all the details we had overlooked and provided us very realistic and accurate quotes on food, drinks and decor. Most importantly, Katie was very good at listening and totally respected our vision and budget. It was a pleasure working with Katie, I would definitely recommend her service.
