I design, plan, & coordinate to eliminate stress.

Hi! I'm Katie

I'm an event planner and coordinator, to-do list junkie, and lover of all things organization and efficiency.  I help women make their dream event visions come to life, all the while helping them to enjoy the process and sweet season of life they're in.
I currently live just outside of the Twin Cities area with my husband, Brian, where you can find me checking out every new restaurant (total foodies), spending time out in the sun, or hanging out with my awesome family while my cat, Nala, lounges on my lap. 

IF YOU'D LIKE A LITTLE LESS STRESS & A LITTLE MORE JOY IN YOUR LIFE, I'M YOUR GIRL

— actually me, ask my husband

I'm not a ride-or-die chick... I have questions & will need to update my to-do list. Where are we riding to? And will there be food there?

For all you enneagram fanatics out there, I'm a type 6.  Which means, I naturally crave security.  And how do you make a control freak feel secure?  You make lists, you have a plan, and you keep things organized.  This is my superpower.  I (formally) began organizing events back in college and continued into my first several jobs out of school, organizing various office & community events.  If you want to get real technical, I could tell you that I've been helping my mom throw my own themed birthday parties back into the elementary school years, but we won't go there.  I found my love for planning weddings specifically when I got engaged in 2017.  But even at that time, I noticed that there were too many options all clamoring for your attention.  

There doesn't need to be a 250+ task list of things to do. You don't have to comb through every nook and cranny, just to make sure you're not missing out.  And you definitely don't need your second cousin's best friend's sister, Karen, giving you her opinion on your centerpieces.  Your wedding should be about your marriage.  And YES, I am a total sap and I do use cliches in everyday lingo.  But I believe that marriage is a covenant, between you, your spouse, and God above.  It's a representation of how Christ loves the church, how God loves us, and there is zero room for stress or anxiety in that.  Your wedding day should be a reflection of your marriage- full of love, joy, grace, and peace.  I aim to help all of my brides feel that way throughout our entire process together.

a little more...

let's see what we have in common...

NEXT
One

 The anticipation!  You should feel giddy and excited, completely at ease.  This really is the best day!  Watching couples glow, that's my favorite.
 

Two

The "getting ready" phase.  For bride & groom both!  Getting all glitzed and glammed with your crew.  Popping collars with your day-ones.
*insert sappy, teary eyes here*

Three

The Look~
When bride & groom lock eyes as she glides down the aisle.  Let's do this thing!!

Four

The end of the grand exit, as you're hopping in the car, I look over to your nostalgic parents.  I might even run over and give them a hug!  Job well done, parents.  You are appreciated. 

more joy!
