Verified Reviews from Real Brides & Grooms

“There was no one more familiar with my wedding vision than Kate. She nailed it!

“Kate has an impeccable eye for style. I feel that she is a trendsetter and not a follower. While she is at the cutting edge of design, she never forces a style on a couple—she makes their love come to life in the decor. What a talent!!”

“Kate gave me something every bride should have…the gift of being present on your wedding day.”

“Kate has amazing style and seemingly endless knowledge of all things wedding. I never doubted her dedication to providing me with the wedding I had been building up my head for 20+ years.”

“She is a creative genius and extremely organized. Her ideas were endless which made for a beautiful wedding and her organization and focus made our day flow seamlessly. She never missed a beat.”

“The entire month before the wedding I felt as though I had a true partner in planning and someone who I could count on. I never ever felt like I would have received any more service had I paid more. She made me feel as though I was her number one priority.”

“I believe Kate had almost everything to do with the success of our event.”

“Simply put Kate (and team) is amazing.”

“Her online planning tools were beyond anything I ever could have imagined.”

“Kate absolutely listened to my vision and provided excellent advice and guidance to achieve our ideal wedding style.”

“She always thought of things that we did not—Kate thought of and anticipated everything.”

“Kate was thorough, attentive, thoughtful, and personable.”

“I was a happy, worry-free bride!

“Their design aesthetic is very tasteful and spot on, as well as very versatile. They can do whatever vision a bride has.”

“The special thing that I want readers to know is that she is very good at communication. When planning a wedding it can be very stressful especially when vendors don’t respond to calls/emails or take multiple follow ups to get a response. However, I never once had to worry about that with Kate.”
