Meet Katy

My name is Katy, recently married & even a COVID Bride -! I celebrated our reception dinner at the Waffle House & I wouldn’t change one thing about it! One thing I am obsessed with would be POOL Floats! (you should see my patio) I just love them, all of them. I think if I could take all my calls in the pool on my float, life would be complete. I have two pups that I love more than anything & I am a bonus mom to the best girl! I really love to take chances and go out on a whim. Life is short & I plan to make the best of it!

Personality and price. We wanted to make sure whoever we were working with was a good fit for us, personality-wise, since you do a lot of meetings and correspondence during the planning process, and the planner is also there with you on your big and, at times, stressful day.

Coastal Coordinating was a great price for all of the services they were providing as they were bringing so much value to the planning process to make sure everything ran smoothly the day of.

We wanted someone who was kind and easy to work with, who understood our vision, who was organized and knew the industry, and someone who would be fine with our 10,000 questions! When we started the wedding planning process I was very overwhelmed. I called a local planner and had a terrible experience. She basically told me that my vision was impossible unless I was willing to spend 5x my budget. I was in tears!

The next day I had a call with Coastal Coordinating, and it was a completely different and wonderful experience. The team there assured me that we could work together to bring my vision to life and do it within budget! They had great connections in the industry and were able to introduce me to new vendors that hadn't even crossed my radar yet. Jess, our coordinator, was available 24/7 for questions/ideas/calls and helped us every single step of the way. She truly made wedding planning and our wedding day(s) as stress-free as possible! Rob and I couldn't get over how wonderful the team was and how thankful we were to have found them! Whatever you have to do, hire a wedding planner! It will truly allow you to relax and enjoy the process and your wedding day!

After reading countless 5-star reviews of Katy and the Coastal Coordinating team, we decided to reach out for a quote. Katy was the best, and I could not imagine how my day would have gone without her expertise and overall knowledge of this industry.

I felt 100% confident Katy would provide the best service; it was above and beyond! She was very organized and fun to work with. I really enjoyed her team, and her connection with other vendors is amazing. If we had an idea, she knew exactly who to contact.

Having planned most of the wedding myself, Coastal Coordinating came in at the perfect moment when we really needed additional support. I planned most of the wedding but knew I wanted some day-of help.

Coastal Coordinating had great reviews for a very fair price. They were game-changing on the day of. Jess and team handled everything day-of, and they even had someone who ensured I always had a glass of wine in hand and could get anything I needed. She even helped me change my shoes right next to the dance floor.

We knew we needed guidance in navigating the whole process of planning a wedding. We wanted someone who knew the industry well and had many years of experience, but who we also trusted with our vision for our wedding.

Planning a wedding out of state can be very stressful, but Katy with Coastal Coordinating made everything a breeze and is a much-needed breath of fresh air in the wedding industry.

We had a very complicated wedding, not the ordinary for sure. There were so many moving pieces, so many cues, and so many pieces of music and performances. Coastal Coordinating came highly recommended, and now I know why. They are amazing. I personally thanked them in my toast. Katy was fantastic. If she had charged me double or triple it still wouldn't have been too much. Katy had answers, was very responsive, and I felt very quickly that she could handle the very complicated event, and boy did she. She brought a team; I only expected her. They ran the event like a well-oiled machine like it had been practiced for months.
