What our clients are saying about Wylie Weddings

(see more reviews on Yelp, Wedding Wire and The Knot!)

“Katie!!!   You are so amazing! How can I begin to thank you enough for coordinating our wedding. First, we had a wedding in a crazy location, on a property where we had to bring in EVERYTHING (bathrooms, lighting, flooring…etc…). Katie took on the challenge without a blink. She was so available and helpful in our meetings/emails/conversations leading up to the wedding, but day-of coordinating, she was absolutely irreplaceable! Everyone at our wedding told me how well she did, how helpful she was, and so calm/collected to keep everything going right on schedule. Everything went off seamlessly – and I know that is because of Katie. She and her assistant Kristin set up, made sure every element was in place (and I had A LOT of elements!), and even cleaned up — we practically had to shooo her out to make her stop working. She was so fun and such a great part of our day. Thank you so much, Katie!!

“Katie and her team were extraordinary!  I cannot count the ways in which their high-energy, multi-tasking situational awareness paid off.  Getting the cars parked correctly?  Check.  Getting the ushers squared away?  Check.  Getting the “sparkler sendoff” done on time?  Check.  Reassuring everyone throughout the process and significantly helping to create a fairy tale wedding that will be talked about for years?  Check.  You cannot go wrong with Wylie Weddings.  Best decision my daughter made was to hire them.”

“Wylie Weddings is truly unique and really will put a special spin on your wedding. They will take your personalities, character and ideas and turn them into something solid and tangible. We had our wedding invites designed by Wylie. they did a PERFECT job!! I never thought anyone would be able to put down on paper what my husband and I envisioned.”

“My biggest advice to brides is always this: HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER. It’s the best money you could possibly spend! I can’t say enough good things about Katie and her staff. She kept us in check and didn’t let us make poor decisions, she has an incredible network of resources that saved us a ton of money, and most importantly, she made it possible for us to actually ATTEND our own wedding. We had a 3-day celebration and Katie worked with us for months leading up to the date and always put us at ease without sugar-coating things. During our wedding weekend, she worked around the clock to make everything seamless and managed to stay calm and fun throughout. She truly saved us and has now gone on to do some friend’s weddings as well. HIRE HER- you won’t regret it.”

“Katie gets it done! My husband and I threw a big DIY wedding at a summer camp last month. We had four hours to get dressed for our ceremony, run a rehearsal, set up a massive site and get 200+ friends and family checked into cabins. As our Day of Coordinator and florist, Katie oversaw it all and she did it with extraordinary competency and a killer attitude. Katie is on top of her game without being abrasive. She thinks outside of the box and works within your budget. She has an amazing sense of style and is an incredible florist. Wylie Weddings is just getting started but this woman is a rising star in the industry. Five Stars all the way.”

“We worked with Katie Hund on the room design/decoration for our wedding in August. We got married at Chaminade and didn’t want the reception to feel like some generic hotel ballroom. Katie did such an amazing job transforming the space and making it out own – we couldn’t have been happier with the result. Katie was a pleasure to work with and she absolutely transformed the blah ballroom with ugly carpet where our reception was held. I was admittedly quite nervous during the months leading up to the wedding because you can’t see “proofs” or sketches or examples of how everything will turn out, and we were working with Katie over the phone and email (we live in Seattle), but we couldn’t have put our trust in a better place. Katie took charge and made sure that everything came together just right and did an amazing job coordinating on the day of the event. Our design included lots of hanging items and she figured out how to make it all happen (no idea how she attached everything to the ceiling). She also worked with our florist on designs and added lots of charm and personal touches to everything she did. We got so many compliments on the beautiful space and most importantly, she created just what we were hoping for for our wedding day. Thank you Katie!”

“Katie handled our niece’s wedding day from top to bottom. As the host for the event (on our property) I was very conscious of every aspect leading up to the event. On the day of the event, Katie (and her assistant) handled everything so well I was able to let go of the fact that there were 120+ guests and vendors at our home. When I did try to step in and handle some things, she quickly rescued me from myself and took over. I highly recommend Katie as a day-of coordinator. The wedding was beautiful and even more important, stress free. Thanks Katie!”

-Edi, Aunt of Bride/Venue Owner (Wylie Weddings provided Day of Coordination)

“Every time someone asks me how I did a wedding to accommodate 250+ people in 4 months, I tell them Wylie weddings! The creativity of this team is what I treasured most. Jeff (their graphics man) had very little to work with (being that I am very uncreative and had trouble explaining my vision) but he gave us the perfect save the dates and invitations, heck even had options! Erica (the photo queen) was such a joy to have around on such a stressful day. It was truly like having a family member taking your photos, except they come out awesome and don’t have fingers blocking the camera. Any one would and will be so lucky to have her as their photographer. Katie (coordinating diva) she’s very good at what she does. From the moment I first met with her she made me feel at ease and totally taken care of. Which is usually what any brides needs. She also just laid everything out and helped in any and everyday she could. I was so lucky to have a woman so creative helping me get my dream wedding accomplished.   Basically I could on forever… But I’ll spare you readers. These people know what their doing and you can tell they love doing it and that’s always refreshing.”

Monica & Sam (Wylie Weddings provided coordination, photography, graphic design services)

“Katie, of Wylie Weddings, gave us a huge sigh of relief when she agreed to coordinate our wedding. She is one of those dynamic, professional, FUN and easy to like people who make even the most stressful times somehow ok because she just KNOWS how to deal with the nuances and intricacies of the complicated nature of wedding planning. Being an organizer myself, it was tough at first to think of handing off all of our well-laid plans to someone else, but Katie is so trustworthy, capable and on top of things that once she had all our google docs in hand, I could breathe a deep breath and trust her to get the job done. And BOY DID SHE!! Our backyard, mostly DIY wedding with 225+ guests, on site catering, parking shuttle and lots of detail was executed with perfection by Katie. She even weathered a guest passing out and ambulance coming, a power outage and rambunctious drunken groomsmen post-wedding. Katie is one to be trusted and empowered to make it happen for your wedding. We felt lucky to have had her on the job for one of the biggest days of our life!”

Kristin, Bride (Wylie Weddings provided coordination and floral services)

“Katie is simply amazing. She did day of coordinating  (which really means month of) and also created a design board for us to execute our vision and she made the wedding perfect. I am fairly detail-oriented/obsessive (lawyer) and was planning a wedding in California from the east coast and Katie made it so easy. People say that inevitably things will go wrong during a wedding…if that’s true at our wedding, I dont know about it because Katie made everything go so smoothly.  Our wedding venue was uniquely challenging because it is huge with several different locations on it…She is SUCH a good listener and you really get the sense that the day is about you and she wants to make it perfect for you.  She reminds you to eat, she brings you champagne, she found my mom’s lost purse, got an uber for my boss who was the officiator…she does everything and anything you need (within reason).   Also, she is able to take charge without you feeling like she’s being bossy…we had some people in the wedding party who were hard to deal with and were making it about themselves and Katie stepped right in and told them what we wanted. I took her aside at one point and asked her to do something for me that was too awkward for me to do myself and she did it without hesitating.  She is incredibly thoughtful, and very unobtrusive. She asks all the right questions–including ones you would never think of (for instance, she asked, “if you want the cake on a wine barrel, will we have a board so it’s raised and you can cut it”) and she listens to your answers. However, she is able to take care of things on her own, and has an intuitive sense of what she should be asking and what she can do on her own, she herself has a wonderful vision. So, if you don’t want to deal with aesthetic details, you can completely trust her. Katie’s colleague Jeff Neckers did design of a map for our wedding site and and our program. Both were amazingly artistic and Jeff really worked closely with us to make them exactly as we wanted them. I would use him again in a heartbeat! ”

“I can not even begin to describe how AMAZING Wylie Weddings is!! Katie took the stress and anxiety out of our wedding day and made everything run so smoothly!  I really do not know what I would have done without her help!  She knew exactly how to organize the wedding party and family at the rehearsal, she remembered every detail for the ceremony, and she added so many incredibly creative details to the decor!  She took time to hear my vision and knew exactly what i wanted and needed (and she even anticipated the things i didn’t know i needed)!   Everyone on this team has such a great eye for beauty and creativity and they make planning a wedding fun and enjoyable.  Thank you Wylie Weddings!!! you made my day exceptional!!”

Jenny, Bride (Wylie Weddings provided coordination and design services)

“I was SO impressed with the Wylie Weddings team. They were organized and professional and did everything with a warm, cheerful attitude. The invitations were beautiful, the music was fun for all ages, and Katie did an AMAZING job coordinating. The venue that my daughter got married had a limited time frame, only two hours for set up and an hour for clean up; Katie was able to set everything up and tear everything down so quickly, there was nothing for me to do! As the mother of the bride, it felt so good to just show up and enjoy my daughter’s wedding with no stress or worry.  And most of all, she worked with my daughter and made her ideas happen. She had lots of little details and DIY touches, and Katie implemented them perfectly. She made everything look absolutely gorgeous, more beautiful than I could’ve imagined.  I would recommend Wylie Weddings to anyone planning a wedding; they were wonderful to work with and helped make my daughter’s wedding perfect!”

Patty, Mother of the Bride (Wylie Weddings provided coordination services)

“For flowers, I had some thoughts but wasn’t super particular. I knew I didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for something really stuffy, I wanted a lot of color, I love Dahlias and daisys and I hate roses. With that guidance, Katie put together the perfect arrangements for what I wanted but couldn’t articulate. My folks (even my dad!) talked about how much they loved the flowers even months after our wedding and one of my friends who is getting married in a month just told me the other day that she’s using our bouquets as inspiration.”
