  • Katie at Big Day Celebrations took all of the worry out of our wedding planning. She made us feel like our wedding was the most important thing in the world to her! The result was a beautiful event, more than we could have even hoped for! She considered every detail, she took our Pinterest board and inspiration photos and crafted an event that exceeded our expectations!

  • We honestly don't have the words to tell you how wonderful Katie is! We gave her nothing to go off in terms of what we wanted. We told her wildflowers, Glacier National Park mugs and that we liked orange more than pink, from that she created our dream wedding. Everything was PERFECT! She didn't let one email go unanswered and she treated us like we were her best friends, it was awesome. We had already had to re-scheduled our wedding once before the pandemic so Katie was not about to let that happen to us again. Since my husband and I are both scientist and working on COVID research we wanted to be extra cautious to make sure everyone stayed healthy. Katie helped keep us calm with all our worries due to the pandemic and basically re-planned the whole wedding with all the pre-cautions we wanted to add to the wedding. (She didn't even blink an eye and just said yes of course we can do anything you want.) Our family and friends loved Katie, she was the perfect fit. IF we had to do all o... Read more

  • Katie has been an absolute pleasure to work with and constantly went above and beyond to help my fiancé and I navigate the wedding planning experience. Our venue referred us to Katie as she used to work at our venue and she was the first vendor we picked after securing the venue. From the get-go, Katie referred us to phenomenal vendors, dealt with our seemingly never-ending questions, and was a source of calm throughout the entire process. Our wedding was initially scheduled for March 2020 but COVID-19 had other plans for us. We made the decision to delay the wedding less than two weeks from our date and Katie stepped up to help us coordinate the date change, going above and beyond to find a new date with our venue and other vendors. She was able to find a date that everyone was able except for her so she helped us find a new day-of-event coordinator. We had to reschedule a second time due to a second flair of COVID-19 and Katie stepped up again, even though she wasn't working wit... Read more

  • It's been a little over a month since our wedding and we're still dreaming about it - what an amazing day! Katie helped get us there through all the questions, bookings, decision making, and timeline creating, with impeccable responsiveness, expert knowledge, and positive energy. We also greatly appreciated her flexible service tiers! We felt like we weren't just working with a proper professional, but also a true friend. And she was always going the extra mile, whether it be pinning boutonnieres, assembling the cake, or blowing up 100 helium balloons! You cannot go wrong having Big Day Celebrations plan and coordinate your wedding - we wish we could still call her up to help us with everyday life!

  • I cannot express my appreciation and love for Katie !!! She was SO amazing throughout the entire planning and wedding process! Anything I asked she always said yes to make whatever I wanted happen to the best of her ability! Her personality is so positive and easy going even during the stress of the wedding! She made me comfortable knowing everything was handled and under control, which was soooo important as it allowed me to just enjoy the day and not have to worry about anything! Thank you again so so so so so much!!

  • First of all, if you are looking for a wedding planner, just stop now because your search for the perfect planner is finished! HIRE BIG DAY CELEBRATIONS! Katie is absolutely amazing and she and Joe are an awesome team. She is the perfect combination of bubbly and optimistic while always remaining a calm, profession problem-solver that covers all bases. We hired her as a day of coordinator, but honestly that package is more like a month of coordination. On top of normal day of coordinator duties, she was there constantly helping answer questions, sending out reminders of all the little things that needed to be done by the bride and groom (like when its time to get your marriage licence, etc), and was there for emotional support phone calls when needed (hello family wedding stress

  • Where do I even start with Katie! She was beyond amazing in every single way. I started planning my micro wedding in advance 18 months, from our very first conversation, I just felt like Katie was my friend! She always kept in touch and never left me up in the air on any little detail. She handled everything with such grace, compassion and ease. Never once during this entire process was I stressed. From the beginning she told me to just “show up” on our wedding day and that is what we did! I don’t have any style, or taste, so I gave her some colors and ideas and she just ran with it. The set-up, the food, the flowers, the décor EVERYTHING was breathtaking. Our micro wedding was something out of a magazine, something that I could have NEVER done on my own. Katie handled everything. If there was ever a hiccup she handled it. At the wedding she was such a pleasure to be around, she was so positive, fun, happy and helpful. She felt like a best friend throughout this entire p... Read more

  • I completely lucked out by my florist recommending Katie! She is wonderful in every way and exceeded all of my expectations. Knowing what I know now, I would’ve booked my wedding around when she was available. She made my wedding FUN and CAREFREE. I am forever grateful for her! She was always super responsive, positive, and resourceful. If ever a problem arose, she would come to me with solutions immediately. When my fiancé decided he wanted a car service a few days before the wedding Katie booked one for us in under an hour. Katie is incredible. Do yourself the biggest favor and HIRE HER. Her husband Joe is also a delight. Truly a dream team that made my wedding unforgettable!

  • My venue contracted with several coordinators, but the moment I met Katie, I knew she was perfect for us (me especially). Her energy and passion are contagious. I explained that I had a good idea for most everything I wanted. Katie let me do my thing, but was always incredibly fast with her responses when I had questions. Throughout our yearlong planning process, she recommended vendors, calmed my nerves in the random moments of panic, and helped me navigate and problem solve issues. At our final meeting, she asked questions about everything to ensure she knew exactly what we wanted down to the tiniest details. On the big day, she was the perfect blend of positivity, peace, and focus. We talked through the decor, and she put it all out exactly how I hoped. She kept everything on track and never broke a sweat (even when the dogs rolled in cow poop just before the ceremony). She and her husband, Joe, cleaned up and packed up at the end of the night which allowed us and our parents to jus... Read more

  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Katie is, hands own, the BEST at what she does. I booked Katie for our day of coordination. She went so far above and beyond what I'd ever expected that I am just floored. What an amazing person and professional. To start, she came to Montana and worked our wedding like she'd been in Montana her whole life. She'd clearly done her homework. She was prepared. She worked with our venue which (much to our surprise) had never before hosted a wedding. She coordinated everything with our photographer, our bridal party, our caterers, our DJ, transportation and so much more. She was able to wrangle everything no questions asked. She set up and took down. She did so much that I never ever expected her to do. And it made my day literally perfect. She cured any/all hiccups and I didn't have to worry at all - and really, I didn't know much about it either because she was so freaking ON THE BALL about all of it. Literally the best money I spent on the entire w... Read more

  • If you’re looking for a wedding planner or day of coordinator, stop looking now because you’ve found her! Katie was super helpful from the day I inquired about day of coordination services. I was planning my wedding from another state and all her recommendations and help were needed and appreciated since I couldn’t meet with vendors in person. Every correspondence between her and I felt genuine and she never hesitated to answer any question no matter how big or small. Her client portal is something I checked frequently, as it was such a wealth of information! From the timeline/checklist, gratuity cheat sheet, and answering questions about ourselves as a couple, you can tell she cares about her couples and wants your day to be a success. On the big day, she set everything up perfectly and made sure things went according to schedule and as planned. Whenever we seemed to be wondering “what’s next” or had a question or need she appeared almost out of nowhere like she could read... Read more

  • Katie was superwoman the day of our wedding and we cannot thank her enough. If anything did go wrong, we had no idea because we were never made aware of it, they were just fixed. From the time we started planning our wedding, we were unsure if we needed a wedding planner. As the wedding day got closer (about a month out) we realized we could not be at two places at once. Our wonderful florist Andie at The Flower Studio recommended Katie and she did not disappoint. Katie was very accommodating and organized. We had one face to face meeting to go over scheduling and questions and everything else was via email. My vendors all complimented Katie and how organized she was when we chatted with them the week leading up to our wedding. Katie was everywhere on our wedding day and always made sure everything was running smoothly. Katie and her husband moved tables under the tent and shimmed them to account for the slope of the grass to make sure we were happy and our guests were comfortable. She... Read more

  • My husband and I couldn't have better things to say about working with Katie and her husband. Although we only hired Katie for day of coordinator she went above and beyond our expectations. She constantly made herself available through out the planning process and was a constant source of resources and helpful tips. On our wedding day I knew I had nothing to worry about. Katie and her husband, Joe, were on top of every detail. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding coordinator and we are so grateful that we picked Big Day Celebrations to guide us through such an important day.

  • We LOVED Katie. There aren’t enough wonderful things I can say about her! She kept me organized and focused up until wedding day, and was an absolute life saver the day of! We had some last minute unexpected occurrances and Katie took FULL control, calmed our nerves and handled everything with grace and confidence! She’s amazing and we would hire her AGAIN and again!! ❤️

  • My now-husband and I planned our Florida wedding from Chicago while working full-time and balancing other responsibilities. Since we were paying for the wedding ourselves, we were looking for ways to cut costs and almost didn't hire a planner. But once we met Katie, with her infectious energy, calming presence and impeccable attention to detail, we knew it would be money well spent--and was it ever. Throughout the entire process, she was present, helpful, upbeat, professional, and SO on the ball (ex. she reminded us 3 months out to apply for our marriage license and helped facilitate that remotely. We probably wouldn't even be legally married right now if it weren't for her, let's be honest). She was knowledgeable about the venue, had (or developed) relationships with our other vendors to ensure everything ran smoothly, and was hyper-organized--all while staying true to our vision and letting us make the final call after providing her own insight, never being pushy or trying to gui...
