  • Catie was terrific. She worked closely with our daughter and husband throughout the wedding planning process and months leading up to the wedding day. The vendors she recommended were first rate. She worked tirelessly the weekend of the wedding, pulling together all the details and keeping everything right on schedule. Highly recommend her to anyone planning a Maine destination wedding. She is the best!

  • My wife and I live in Chicago and planned a wedding set in Camden, ME. We knew we needed a couple things from a coordinator but we got so much more from Catie. She was a creative collaborator that helped us flush out and realize our half ideas, a stellar stage manager who we felt confident handing the keys off to on the day, a flexible expert on weddings that guided us on how things have worked in the past but was open to figuring out how to accomplish our personal ideas, and she was a kind-hearted anticipator who solved emotional needs of us and our families. Catie was our rock through and through and I can't imagine trying to plan a wedding, let alone one out of state, without someone as stellar as Catie.

    Thank you Zack- You and Sara had one of the most beautiful wedding weekends. From the rehearsal dinner and all the toasts to the ceremony. The reception with all the personal touches you both added was nothing short of a perfect production of your talents. And that dress!! A story to be written there. Catie

  • Catie was amazing to work with! She was so attentive and helped make every detail of my wedding day perfect. Whenever I had questions or concerns she was quick to answer them and put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend working with destination Maine weddings if you’re choosing this beautiful state for your special day!!

  • Hiring Catie for my destination wedding in Portland, Maine was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Planning a wedding in Portland from Chicago was not easy, having Catie be my go-to person for the wedding was incredible. Being able to ship her everything I needed (favors, welcome bag contents, gifts, MY DRESS, etc) was such a huge relief to my family and I. I hired her for the month before the wedding and she finalized all the logistics and timelines with my vendors, helped me with table settings, program designs and answered any/all questions I had. And that was just leading up to the wedding! Once I landed in Portland, Catie took over completely, I was so relaxed, my fiance and I were actually able to have a date night before our guests arrived! The day of the wedding her and her team were on top of it, making sure we had everything we needed in our rooms & limo (champagne, food, etc.), making sure the reception had the tables setup up perfectly, getting the ceremony going, k...

  • Destination Maine Weddings was awesome to work with from planning the details of the wedding and reception right through the big day! I was able to thoroughly enjoy my daughter’s wedding! Catie was incredibly professional, helpful and fun during the planning process and Kim made sure the whole day (and rehearsal) ran smoothly. They both went above and beyond the call of duty and were a joy to work with! I initially debated using a wedding planner to try to keep costs down but I have to say it was money well spent. I would highly recommend Destination Maine Weddings to friends! Thank you so much Catie and Kim!

  • We hired Catie and the DMW team for our wedding in August and it was the best decision we could have made for our wedding! From start to finish, Catie was responsive, incredibly helpful, dedicated and went above and beyond before, during and after to personally ensure we had the best night of our lives and the most amazing wedding! We met for coffee, had late night and early morning phone chats- Catie listened to our vision and made it come to life better than we could have imagined, she was on top of every single detail and organized and ran our day of schedule to flow effortlessly and flawlessly. Even our wedding guests were complimenting how well the wedding day was organized and run!! I can’t say enough positive things about Catie! I seriously don’t know what we would have done without her. She made my wedding and experience as a bride so magical and stress-free and I know we will remain good friends, that’s how amazing she is!

  • Catie was an instrumental part of making our wedding day the incredible experience that it was. I truly have no clue what we would have done without all of her expertise, planning, coordination, or of course, humor. We would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone! We are eternally grateful :)

    Thank you Abbie. The whole wedding weekend was so much fun, with old and new friends. The ceremony vows were the most heartfelt. The barn dancing, the toasts-so much pure joy. Catie

  • Caity and Amy were fabulous ! They were attentive and responsive, no matter the request. I swear Amy is a mind reader, she always knew what we needed before we did ! We did not have one glitch throughout the entire weekend. Of all the expenses incurred, Caity and Amy gave us the most “bang for the buck”. Fabulous !

    Thank you so much Rocky, it was our honor to be apart of your daughters day. The whole weekend was filled with so much love, joy and fun!

  • Catie was with us practically from day one, helping us plan every minute detail of our special day. She saw our vision and helped us realize it. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect celebration! From the table decorations (greens from her own backyard mixed with farm fresh flowers!) to the vegan cookies we served for dessert, Catie helped ensure that our reception venue and wedding experience was casual and fun for everyone. She helped us navigate food and alcohol on an extremely limited budget, and worked behind the scenes to remedy the situation when some vendors fell through at (nearly) the last minute. Our ceremony, which Catie officiated, was intimate and totally special--we were literally surrounded by our friends and family. Afterward, everyone kept asking about where we got the readings! They had never been so moved by a non-religious ceremony. Catie had some amazing suggestions for us to choose from, and we worked with her to create a short ceremony that celebrated the de...

  • We cannot say enough great things about Catie and Destination Maine Weddings. Catie was the officiant for our small destination wedding in Bar Harbor, ME, and she truly went above and beyond to help us create a very personalized, beautiful, and special ceremony. She made the entire process fun, and she put in extra time to meet with us and get to know us as she helped us create the ceremony. Catie's role well exceeded officiant - she also helped us to coordinate details the day of the wedding, and she even offered to drive us and our photographer into Acadia National Park to take special photos post-ceremony. I highly recommend using Catie for your wedding!

    Thank you Emily. Your ceremony was so special and I was honored to be apart of it.

  • Catie was incredible and tied so many details together for the perfect weekend. We couldn't think of one thing we would change about the weekend, because Catie thought through every detail, even those we didn't even think to consider. Our guests have been raving about how fun and beautiful the weekend was, and every time we answer that it was because Catie was orchestrating the event. We were so relaxed and happy during the whole weekend because we knew Catie was taking care of us. THANK YOU CATIE!!

    Maddy, Thank you! It was so much fun to work with you, Rall and your families. What a party weekend you guys throw! Cheers- Catie

  • Catie was outstanding! She is brilliant, anticipated things we never would have known to take care of and, when we had a last minute venue change, she single handedly made it happen. The wedding was magical and in great part due to her attention to detail and conscientious. As the mother of the bride, I was so relaxed and enjoyed the entire day, thanks to the fact that Catie was taking care of all the pieces and making it all work smoothly. I can't say enough wonderful things about the way she executed her job.

  • Catie and Amy were amazing! I have very bad anxiety and OCD, but they made sure my day was stress free. They were able to coordinate between me, my mother, and my MIL/FIL, which really cut down on the tension. I would send 10+ emails a day, and they were always very patient and wonderful with follow through. I already know that we will be using them for my sister's wedding, no matter where it is. And I hope to use them for baby showers and any other event that comes up. They were a joy to work with. It becomes like working with a best friend. Everything turned out beautiful, and all of the details were taken care of. If there were any issues I didn't find out about them until days later, if at all. (Some people showed up without RSVPing, some people didn't show up, but Catie and Amy took care of all of it without me, which was amazing.) I was able to focus on the wonderful day and not worry about anything. I can't say enough good things about Catie and Amy. They were worth every pen... Read more

  • From the moment we met Catie, we knew she was the right person to marry us. She was smart, sweet, very knowledgeable and provided an invaluable sense of comfort. We were in very good hands with Catie, who was more than just our officiant. She was a guide, a planner, and maybe most importantly, someone we could always talk to about our ideas and concerns throughout the wedding planning process. On our wedding day, Catie did a masterful job with the ceremony. She’s an elegant orator and her pacing was perfect. Not only did we feel that way, but our guests raved about her as well. Afterward, Catie said, “It was an honor to be part of your wedding.” The feeling was 100 percent mutual. We were honored and incredibly thankful to have her be part of our wedding – and we were honored and incredibly thankful to have her in our lives.

  • We worked with both Catie and Amy to plan our wedding. I could not be happier that we chose to work with them. Even in times of high stress (before the wedding especially!), they remained calm and made sure everything worked out. The day overall turned out even better than I could have imagined and everything they designed was beautiful. I also sincerely appreciated Catie's efforts to find the perfect vendor for every piece.

    Thank you Eileen for the kind words. You were a joy to work with, even the rain couldn't stop your beautiful day. I love the photos from Two Adventurous Souls! Kindly, Catie & Amy
