  • I hosted my wedding on 10/28/17 at The Glasshouses in NYC. I hired Katie and her team as our Day of Coordinator because I needed to make sure I was stress free and didn't worry on my actual wedding day! We hired a number of vendors and needed the reassurance that everything would run smoothly. Hiring Sara Kate Events was by far the best decision. She made sure to check in with all the vendors, helped us with our ceremony run through and made adjustments when necessary during the reception. Katie was so kind and wonderful. I completely trusted her and she went above and beyond. You can tell she has many years of experience and a great eye for detail. She knew the layout of the venue well which was a plus. Hiring her was worth every penny, best decision we made.

  • Probably the best decision I made for our wedding, aside from saying “yes” my groom, was hiring Katie Berger as our florist and day-of-coordinator. Katie feels like a long-lost friend of the most genuine and just-plain-nice variety; she takes the time to get to know you and all that you hope your wedding day to be. Believe me, you won’t know how much you need Katie until after the wedding – so take it from me: hire her now. No joke, she is a game changer in the wedding industry (and lets be honest – the world). For me, I wanted someone that could wear multiple hats (i.e. flowers, décor, and coordination) so as alleviate as much pressure from us (and my parents) on the day. Katie, and her assistant Mary Kate, did just that – and then some. Katie and Mary Kate ensured that our day ran smoothly from start to finish while keeping things both calm and fun! We will never be able to thank them enough, but I hope that a review like this will keep well-deserved business coming thei... Read more

  • I had the pleasure of working and spending the day with Katie and her team at a wedding this past summer and they were phenomenal! Not only is she the sweetest person EVER but she gets it done! And with a smile on her face. She not only did the florals and decor for the wedding but she also handled day of coordination, and she did an impeccable job at both. The day was fun, smooth and flawless with her at the helm!

  • We hired Sara Kate Events for our wedding for full planning and they were fantastic! Katie Berger was our contact throughout the entire planning process and was extremely responsive and helpful with everything from finding the venue, Central Park Boathouse, to the photographers, band, videographer, cake, florist (one of the required ones by the Boathouse), photobooth, and other vendors. I honestly don't know how I would have been able to plan everything without her. She was on top of everything including the overall planning timeline, she let me know when we needed to hire the vendors by, she helped with out budget and keeping me on track, also, she helped us negotiate the contract with the Boathouse and reviewed all contracts with our other vendors. Katie was extremely organized and always available for my seemingly never ending questions through email, calling, and texts. On the day of Katie and Marykate, her assistant, were wonderful. They were on top of everything and made sure tha... Read more

  • We used Sara Kate Events for a day-of-wedding coordinator and had a fantastic experience. Terri and her assistant Jillian worked with us and did an excellent job - they are both very personable and organized, and made sure that our event ran very smoothly. Prior to the event, we spoke with Katie Berger (head of the company) several times and she was extremely organized and personable as well. Everyone answered our questions promptly and put our mind at ease. It was an invaluable part of our wedding planning and we highly recommend Sara Kate Events to anyone looking for experienced and professional wedding coordinators!

  • We used Sara Kate Events for our day-of wedding coordination and planning support - they were absolutely fabulous. Katie's experience and industry network were an invaluable resource to me. She recommended fantastic vendors, including transportation, hair and makeup, and provided great suggestions to help make our wedding flow beautifully and feel like us. In the lead up, Katie was always willing to make time to talk through logistics, ceremony flow, and answer any questions I had. She made me feel at ease - and we know brides can feel overwhelmed when planning their special day so this was huge for me. On the wedding day Mary Kate and the team were phenomenal. I was very involved with the planning of my day, but they took over and I just enjoyed everything. They anticipated needs before I did, and worked so well with all our vendors. Their services are a great value and totally worth it to help any couple make their day a beautiful memory. I would highly recommend them.

  • Katie and MaryKate were beyond fabulous!! Where do I begin?! I don't even want to say vendor, because Katie and MaryKate were more like friends! They are awesome women, who do a phenomenal job!!! From the first phone call to the end of the reception, Katie was incredible. She is so down to earth and relatable, while making sure all your concerns are taken care of. Beyond being an amazing wedding planner, she is just a nice and caring person. You can really tell Katie and MaryKate genuinely love their jobs! Katie was on top of everything! She had me fill out a questionnaire so that she knew every aspect of what I wanted. She also had a timeline that we kept to so perfectly!! If it wasn't for her telling me that I needed to get dressed, I would have probably been very late!! If there were ever issues that came up unexpectedly, Katie and MaryKate were on top of it! Katie and MaryKate's attention to detail is exactly what you would want on the biggest day of your life!! The... Read more

  • Katie was our day-of coordinator. She took care of logistics so I could focus on getting ready and enjoying my family and friends on the morning of the wedding. During the guests' arrival and ceremony, she made sure everything we wanted to happen happened on schedule. Then, during cocktail hour, my stepfather-in-law turned grey, collapsed and became unresponsive. Katie brought the EMTs up from the street so my family and I could stay with him, gave reports on how he was doing while they helped him on another floor (he was fine, in the end) and worked with our DJ to redo the night's schedule on the fly. Once we knew he was going to be okay, she helped us figure out how to fit in our first dance, dinner, etc. in the time we had left with as little stress as was possible under the circumstances. I hope no one else has a medical emergency like that at their wedding, but the fact that all of us--stepfather-in-law included--managed to still have a beautiful night would have been really diffi...

  • I had Terri Loiacono and her assistant Jill as my day-of coordinators for my wedding in May 2016. Let me tell you, Terri is phenomenal!! She is a pro, truly. She totally put me at ease and handled all the day-of logistics. My wedding was very DIY - raw space type venue that required a lot of setup, plus I had food trucks instead of a traditional caterer so there were even more vendors and logistics to manage - but Terri and Jill managed it all so I didn't think about a thing on my wedding day except getting married and spending time with my friends and family! Also, Terri is SUPER responsive over email and text which was so helpful in the weeks leading up to my email - she always had quick answers to all of the questions and thoughts I sent her way. She is very organized and will remember all the details you tell her. I spent so much time worrying about things like setup, breakdown, decor, logistics in advance of the wedding but I shouldn't have worried - with Terri in charge there is ... Read more

  • We can't thank Katie enough for all her help on our wedding day. We hired Katie to be our DOC. I'd been very stressed prior to the wedding, and felt so much of my anxiety being lifted after she showed up to the hotel. She and Mary Kate kept me calm, and my fiance and I did not have to think of anything else during the ceremony or reception. I can't imagine what it would've been if they had not been there.

  • I planned a wedding while outside of the country so I had tonnes of questions which Katie handled so professionally. I was always made to feel comfortable with all my decisions as Katie provided me with lots of information on alternative options. Katie managed our wedding directly and was always transparent on costs, vendors etc. We were so happy with our decision to have Katie be part of our big day she really made sure our day went smoothly. I would recommend Katie and Sara Kate events without hesitation.

  • We hired Katie and her assistant Mary Kate for day of coordination. And we could not have made a better choice. She was super reliable, organized, and pretty much on top of every request or need that we had. She is extremely responsive to any question that we had leading up to the day. All went smoothly on the day of the wedding. It definitely put my mind at ease having these two by my side. I have to say my husband did not totally understand why we needed day of coordination, but after they showed up and took charge he understood why! I would definitely recommend her for couples seeking day of coordination. Also we had our wedding at the Boathouse in Central Park- she knows all the details and inner workings of this venue, if you are having your wedding there I would especially recommend her!

  • This wedding planner was a wedding nightmare experience. She was lazy, messed up our wedding contract with the venue that almost cost us thousands of dollars after she said she looked it over but clearly didn't. She was supposed to coordinate my wedding but after 6 months, had done absolutely nothing. I had to find every vendor. It was a horrible experience and I had to make an emergency decision to get a new planner after realizing I was being conned. She refused to give me the $3,500 back. I felt robbed and completely taken advantage of. She thought we had money to spare and took advantage of a bride trying to plan her wedding, which should have been a fun and enjoyable experience.
