  • Katie was courteous and professional. We had a long email correspondence to which she was very responsive. She also sat with us for a few hours to go over the details of our special day to make sure it went off without a hitch… And it did! Katie made sure that everything went according to plan for our wedding and there were no major hiccups. She made sure that everything was taken care of so we were able to focus on enjoying the day.

  • Katie was very attentive to all details and prepared for everything - including most things I never would have thought about. She is also a pleasure to work with. She has my highest recommendation!

  • Katie was absolutely amazing throughout the entire time working with her! After our first phone call I knew I wanted to work with her and my new husband and I could not be happier that we did. She’s super sweet, thorough, and incredibly detail-oriented. I’m a highly organized person so I was hesitant about even needing help with the planning, and had intended to only get a coordinator for the day-of; but we ended up hiring Katie as our day-of coordinator and for the 2 months ahead of the wedding and I cannot imagine if we hadn’t. Our venue was raw so there were a million logistical tasks to do to ensure that everything would be ready for our day, and Katie helped alleviate so much of the stress, especially as things ramped up in the two weeks before. She covers every little detail (ones that would have been easy for us to have missed) and made sure that the day was exactly as I had envisioned and that I could just relax and take it all in. Plus, when we had any issues, wh... Read more

  • Katie was absolutely amazing and I cannot imagine how our wedding celebration would have happened without her help. In the weeks leading up to the wedding she was always organized, prompt, and knowledgeable--helping us cover details and tackle questions and loose ends we might not have realized needed follow up in time. The day of the wedding, she was the first person at the venue and the last to leave--she worked incredibly hard and honestly by the end of our brief time as her clients felt like part of the family. (Except kind of better than family because you can use her to keep your own family members in line!) I've really been procrastinating on writing this long overdue review, because how does one put into words something that meant more than words can convey? Cheer & Dear made the whole wedding weekend become like a happy dreamscape that my husband and I got to float around in. I literally don't know how to thank Katie enough because what she gave to us was intangible and p... Read more

  • Katie was amazing as our month of coordinator for our tea ceremony and wedding reception. She was not only extremely kind and cheerful, but also hard working and responsive. She went above and beyond to get to know us early on in the process (about a year out from our actual wedding reception) and checked in on us periodically throughout the year (even though she was under no obligation to do so). She even brought us home-baked cookies when we first met her! We had a highly customized wedding since our venue was a raw space in Brooklyn, New York. Katie developed an extremely detailed, thoughtful timeline. She was a huge source of support during the month leading up to the event when we had to be in constant communication with our vendors. She was in touch with each vendor to make sure they understood the day of logistics and the wedding timeline. She attended our final walk-through with us, our caterer, and our venue manager, and asked detailed questions that allowed our event to run m... Read more

  • Where do i start about Katie? She helped me in sooo many ways. She literally became more than just my day of coordinator. She became a friend I could always count on. The way she organized a timeline for the special day, did wonders. She made alot of suggestions but did not pressure me to do things HER way. She made me feel comfortable and always shed light on ideas that I hadn't even thought of. My day turned out to be awesome and I have to give her the credit she deserves. Do yourself a favor and hire her, she will have that day going smoothly. Believe it, it is well appreciated! Thanks again Katie!

  • The services from Cheer and Dear were exactly what I needed. I was a bride who was not excited to plan a wedding - it was really stressful to me! Katie helped me make sure that all the details of the day went smoothly. I honestly don’t know how people get married without the help of a planner or day of coordinator. Our wedding party and family knew that they could ask Katie questions rather than ask me which allowed me to focus on the biggest day of my life and my husband. I highly recommend working with Katie. She’s detail oriented and works really hard.

    Thanks so much, Jen! It was honor working with you and Mike on your wedding and I'm so happy for you two!

  • I came to Katie at Cheer & Dear at first only have her do my flowers for both the ceremony and reception of my wedding this past May. I initially thought I wouldn't need a day of coordinator and could do it all myself as my wedding wasn't going to be too large (70 guests). After working with Katie on my flowers (which by the way turned out beautifully) and seeing how well organized and thoughtful she was in making sure she understood both my budget and my vision while also bringing additional ideas to help add the perfect finishing touches, I quickly realized I would be foolish not to also use her as my day of coordinator as well. Katie asked all of the right questions and thought of things I never even knew to think of planning for (such as did I have a point person to fix my cathedral length veil as I turn to walk down the isle etc.). Katie was a joy to work with and helped bring a sense of calm to what normally could be a very chaotic and stressful process. Knowing she ... Read more

    Meghan- I'm so grateful you allowed me to be such an integral part of your wedding. I loved every bit of it. And you guys were such troopers for putting up with the rain! They say it's good luck though and I hope it's true :)

  • Katie helped me plan my wedding in so many different ways. She gave practical advice in creating timelines for the day of, day before, and rehearsal. She listened to exactly what I wanted for table numbers, a seating chart, and menus for the reception and then created them for me and found the best place to print them QUICKLY and for a very reasonable price that fit well within my budget. When it came to things I wasn't as sure about, she helped me find different photos that led me to better choose the exact style I not only hoped for, but also that fit beautifully with everything else I had already chosen! She was willing to help with whatever I wanted and needed, and went above and beyond, even getting breakfast for my wonderful bridesmaids the morning of getting ready. If you want someone who will make you feel as important as you hope to on and before your wedding day, who has experience planning not only their own gorgeous wedding, but others as well, then Katie is perfect for yo...
