"Katie was a breath of fresh air after a not so successful hunt for a wedding planner. My husband and I had a lot of DIY ideas and a few non-traditional details we wanted to include. When we first talked to Katie I remember her response to our ideas being "great, let's do it!" This was Katie's attitude throughout the whole planning process. She was so willing to hear our ideas and make sure they happened just the way we wanted. Katie was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, very detail-oriented and organized, and committed to the vision we had for our big day. We didn't have to worry about a thing. I could trust that Katie would implement every detail we had discussed. She handled ALL communication with vendors the week leading up to the wedding, and remained accessible for any last minute needs. And on top of it all, she's just a really friendly, kind, and good person to work with!"
“I wasn't sure how much help I would need from a wedding planner but I am so happy I went for the full service package. I realized I wanted a professional opinion from the start and I am so glad I had Katie. She came to most of our vendor meetings and asked so many great questions that I would never have thought to ask. She was very patient and really wanted to make sure we got exactly what we wanted with each vendor and with each choice we had to make. She took so much "off my plate" so I could focus on the things I wanted to focus on. Her attention to detail is admirable and our wedding day was perfect. Katie has a wonderful personality and is always cheerful and upbeat. Also, I really appreciated how easy it was to communicate with her. Her response time was very quick. I would definitely recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or a big event.”
“Katie really goes above and beyond to not just give you what you expect and meet your requirements but to truly make the day so memorable and stress free. She was giving us weather updates every hour and coming up with backup plans in case it rained. As chaotic and stressful as wedding planning can be, with Katie behind us we didn't feel any of that. Everything went off smoothly and it literally would have been impossible to do without her. She is incredibly friendly, super easy to get a hold of, knowledgeable, well-connected to other vendors, patient, and offers wisdom and advice and guidance that you didn't even know you needed! I would 100% recommend anyone to hire Katie and Best Day Ever LA to assist with their wedding planning. You won't regret it!”
“Katie did a great job keeping me and my bride worry-free. After getting upsetting news from a vendor at our rehearsal dinner, I called Katie, freaking out about what we were going to do. She just told me to enjoy the dinner and leave it to her. The next day, the issue was resolved. Same thing when the limo taking the wedding party from photos to the ceremony ran late. Katie said she'd deal with it, and she did. Katie does a great job of being on-top of planning without ever stressing us out. She kept us on schedule without losing her cool.”
"We had initially considered not having a wedding coordinator. We were doing most of the planning (or so we thought) ourselves, and we had a lot of friends and family who were willing and able to pitch in and help out. As our wedding day drew closer, we were getting nervous, realized we needed help, and ultimately hired Katie. This was the absolute best decision we made!!! She INSTANTLY put our minds at ease. She was so easy and fun to work with. When we look back on our wedding day, we can't imagine what it would have been like without her. She gave us the one thing we wanted: the ability to enjoy the day knowing the details were in perfectly capable hands. If we could go back and do it all again, Katie would be our first phone call!"
“Katie was amazing in every way! She worked so hard planning our event, was insanely responsive, always getting back to me right away. She seems to truly enjoy her work... She was great at figuring out my personality, what I would like, and suggesting things based on that. The planning all went beautifully and I never felt overwhelmed by anything while at the same time feeling like I was included in every decision. I trusted Katie to handle every aspect of the event, and the day couldn't have gone smoother. I got to enjoy myself completely without stressing over anything.”
"Katie and her husband/assistant Travis were AMAZING!! My insane four-year-old nephew literally punched her in the crotch at our wedding rehearsal, and she had a great sense of humor about it. She was incredibly organized (and as a person who is also very into organization this was a HUGE deal), and she made the day of our wedding flow so smoothly. She and her husband especially helped with one of our main decoration pieces - a large door that also served as our welcome sign and program. They carted it all the way back to LA for us from Santa Barbara, and even brought it back to our apartment. She was also very willing to work with our tight budget, which was major. Katie is professional, incredibly warm and friendly, and makes your special day the BEST DAY EVER. I cannot recommend her highly enough!"
"Words cannot even begin to describe how amazing my experience with BDELA really was. I got married at the 1909 in Topanga Canyon and my "much appreciated yet overbearing" and super Brazilian mom was flying in from New Jersey while my in-laws were flying from VA Beach and NYC. Needless to say I was stressed, but Katie made me so calm. Katie is a genius. She completely took my stress away and made every detail perfect. She went above and beyond in every way. I am forever grateful to this company who took the guesswork out of wedding planning and made my wedding more beautiful than I could have imagined. Thank you guys! Seriously, I am in awe of what you did. I couldn't recommend these guys more."
"Simply put, our wedding could not have happened without Katie at Best Day Ever LA. She and her team took full control on our wedding day and made sure every vendor, detail and person involved was where they needed to be, exactly when they needed to be there. Her down-to-the-minute schedule was a thing of beauty, and she asked questions and anticipated scenarios that I never even thought of. Katie was always available and flexible to meet or discuss questions, and on our wedding day, she hustled harder than we ever could have imagined to ensure our vision came together as a reality. She was on time, stayed late and had a smile on her face the entire time. It was such a pleasure to work with Katie and I highly recommend using BDELA for your big day!"
