"Okay I don’t even know where to start!!!!! Kate is AAAAMAZING. I mean it. My husband was hesitant to book a wedding planner and even he admits we could have NEVER done what Kate did. She is seriously the greatest decision we made about our wedding day. Kate was able to turn a backyard wedding into the magical and incredible day we had envisioned. DO NOT HESITATE book her now, for every event ever!!!!!!!!!!! She is so kind, caring, understanding, detail oriented, professional and overall just AMAZING at what she does. My family is obsessed, my friends are obsessed, and I am obsessed. I am so grateful for all that you do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!"
"This review comes very late, as our wedding was back in August 2022, but we had to think a very long time about how to distill down how amazing Kate is as a person, and wedding coordinator, before we could write a decent review. From the very start, she was there, helping us to liaise with a difficult venue coordinator, organize the day, and get everything in line ahead of time. Her professionalism, skill and communication were so appreciated. On the day of the wedding, Kate was so wonderful. Neither of us had any worries because she was busy decorating, arranging, ushering and coordinating to keep things moving. Our cocktail hour was complicated by a medical emergency with a guest, and this is really where her compassion, flexibility, and commitment helped to salvage the rest of the day, and keep things moving in a positive way. We were so lucky to find Kate, and couldn't imagine our wedding without her and all of her personal touches. If you need a wedding planner and coordinator, Kate should absolutely be your person :)."
"RUN, don’t walk, to book Kate as your wedding planner - Kate was our very first vendor and hands down our best wedding investment. Our wedding planning went from one year to 2.5 because of COVID - Kate guided us through the constant changes, she was always on top of all restrictions and rules, and made sure we had an incredible small ceremony in 2021 and a full reception and vow renewal in 2022, both of which were absolute magic. Kate has incredible energy and was so much fun to work with. She always made us feel like we were her top priority and understood exactly what kinds of ideas and choices we wanted for our wedding. Incredible attention to detail ensuring every moment has been considered. We had a lot of unique ideas and requests and Kate worked to make sure we had everything we wanted - including ensuring our vision came together in a cohesive way, finding vendors for us that we would have never been able to on our own (like a sushi cake and custom painted running shoes), and creating a beautiful decor package that was better than we ever imagined! She knew what we wanted before we did. Kate also worked with all our vendors and saved us so much time and stress, ensuring that all of our details were perfect and providing us with lots of great advice and information, so we were always comfortable with the decisions we were making. Anyone would be lucky to have Kate be a part of their day (or days!) - and we’ve never been anything short of thrilled to have had her be part of ours. "

"Every bride needs a Kate! I wholeheartedly believe this, Kate was not only organized, detailed, efficient, and thought of every little thing, she was the kindest, genuine, calm, cool and collected person you could ask to help make your wedding day go smoothly. We hired Kate before the pandemic for month of coordination in August 2021 (though in hindsight, she is so amazing I wish I hired her to plan the whole wedding!), and even during the pandemic she was always reaching out to see if there was anything she could help with. We went from a wedding of 140+ people, to 16 people, and even with 16 people, you need all the help you can get! We were constantly told that the weeks leading up to the wedding would be most stressful, but we never experienced that because we had Kate, she always made sure she removed any and every stress that would come our way, she handled our wedding with such care, attention and detail, but above all, she felt like she was just one of the family. Even our guests keep raving about her! We can't thank Kate enough. If you are lucky enough to be able to have Kate work with you, I would highly highly recommend it!!"
"Kate was such a vital part of our wedding going smoothly and giving myself the gift of enjoying this special day! I’m a planner at heart and during the pandemic had to plan for 3 different guest list sizes. Kate supported me during this uncertainty. When we shifted from a venue to an acreage wedding she became even more vital with all her knowledge and talent. The day of she was amazing. I didn’t have to think of anything just go with our timeline and enjoy. She helped guide my cousin who officiated for us. She executed my vision of the day and tent perfectly. Not once did I think that hiring Kate was not worth it. She was the best decision and even though we went down from 200 to 50 guests she was vital. Give yourself the gift of relaxing a bit on your wedding day and Hire her!!!!! Thank you Kate for everything"

"Kate was an excellent coordinator for our wedding. We planned our wedding for July 2020, right in the heart of COVID. Kate was very responsive, and kept us cool under the pressure of changing regulations. She was organized to help us make critical decisions and ensured the day went by flawlessly. Although we had to shrink our wedding significantly, it was perfect and everything we ever wanted, and Kate definitely played a big part in that. Looking forward to using Kate's services again for the reception!"
"The moment we met Kate we knew that we needed her to be part of our big day. Kate is professional, organized and was ready to help us with anything we needed. She tailored a contract that completely fit our needs, was on budget, and we always felt like she was just one text away with an answer for everything. Our wedding day truly would not have been as amazing as it was without her help. Thank you Kate!
"Kate was an absolute pleasure to work with while planning, during and even after our wedding. When I say that she saved our sanity, kept me calm, cool, collected, up to date, on schedule and accountable for my part of the planning, she surpassed our every expectation. Everyone at our wedding said that she was so professional, so kind and “on top of it”. Planning and replanning a wedding during a pandemic had so many challenges (and feelings) and Kate held our hand through it all and took care of everything. If you are even considering Kate - hire her. She will create the most incredible day for you! Thank you Kate, from the bottom of our hearts xo"

“If you are thinking of having a wedding in the future you need to RUN don't walk to book services with Kate Colman! We very quickly realized that planning our dream wedding within our budget would be more than a full time job and so we met with Kate. From day one she was amazing in making everything come together. As the pandemic came into full effect, Kate was already navigating all the possibilities and alternatives and we never really had to stress about anything. We also did a private elopement ceremony a few months before our actual public ceremony and she coordinated and planned a beautiful and intimate ceremony that we were so thrilled with. For our public ceremony we literally just had to show up and everything was taken care of. It was the definition of a stress free day! We had an absolute blast and really felt like we could enjoy every moment of the day without worrying which was so special. If you want to be excited about your day and enjoy the process throughout then you NEED to book with Kate Colman!!!”
“My fiancé and I hired Kate as our Day of Coordinator for our wedding in July. She is truly a professional and went above and beyond to execute the perfect event. Even during a pandemic, when our plans were continuously changing, Kate flawlessly brought our vision to life. She is quick to respond to any questions or concerns and dealt with our vendors with ease. She also has her own inventory of décor and other miscellaneous items which we definitely took advantage of. Kate was an absolute rockstar through out the day . We highly recommend her services!”
“I don’t even know where to start. Kate is beyond magical! As someone who has a lot of anxiety and planning a wedding was something I was not looking forward to at all, I would do it a million times over as long as Kate was by my side!! (Much to my now husband’s concern 😆). Understanding, kind, compassionate, fun, a miracle worker, wonderful, supportive, professional, a God-send, and beyond amazing are all words/sayings I could use to describe Kate. From our first coffee together to saying “I do”, she has been so warm, kind and organized! Her connections with local vendors in the wedding industry also really helped our wedding come together; as supporting local was also something I really appreciated. All my friends and family after the wedding even mentioned how amazing she is and how she was such a great person to work with! I highly recommend Kate and Kate Colman Weddings + Events for all your event planning needs. She’s the best there is and my heart and sanity will always be eternally grateful to her for all her help and support.”
"Kate was an absolute dream to work with for my event - from start to finish she made herself available for absolutely everything. Kate went out of her way to ensure that I did not stress about any of the fine details & was always going above and beyond. Kate is a kind-hearted and hard working person & I am looking forward to the day that I can work with her again!"
"Kate was an amazing support for me while planning my wedding. Unfortunately we had to cancel our plans due to Covid, I know that my first phone call when we start to replan and organize a new day will be to Kate! She definitely makes the wedding planning process"
”Kate is a miracle worker and we so so so appreciated having her coordinate our wedding day. She was a HUGE help before the wedding (especially with everything changing due to COVID) and was an absolute rockstar the day of. From coordinating our flower girls (who were a handful!) to getting umbrellas for everyone, setting everything up in the wind/rain then racing to get the food and come back and tearing down to re-set everything up indoors. Both of us agree that if weren't for Kate, everything would have been an absolute disaster. Kate is absolutely amazing and I would refer her to anyone looking for a small or large scale event!“
"Kate was amazing! She brings so much knowledge to the table. She is calm and has problems fixed before you even know! I had her coordination package and it was such a relief to have her in our corner. Our parents and friends could enjoy the day, as everything went so smooth. If you are looking for a wedding/event planner you've found the perfect one in Kate!"
“Oh my gosh! Where do I even begin?! If you are wavering on the "do I need a wedding planner", then first off, the answer is YES. If you're wondering, is Kate Colman the one I should go with, then the answer is DEFINITELY YES! This woman is AMAZING! She is personable, professional, sweet, thoughtful, creative and beyond organized in everyway. She made my wedding day flow so smoothly, is key for last minute problem solving and is a HUGE stress reliever. I had so many compliments on how amazing she was. You NEED this woman for your wedding day. She is worth every cent (I would have paid significantly more now too knowing how amazing and vital she was to my day!) Book her, you will not be disappointed ❤️“

“Kate Colman recently helped me with my wedding June 1 2019. I could not imagine doing this day without her. Words can not describe how much this woman helped me months before the wedding! DAYS leading up to my wedding. But most of all she was there on the day of the wedding to make sure everything went accordingly. As I said In my speech “everyone needs a KATE in their lives.” She helped with making my vision/dream come true.
