  • Katy and her entire team were fabulous to work with. She kept us on track throughout the entire wedding planning process and even with our wedding being in the middle of their busiest season, the VanBee & Co. team always made me feel like our priorities were also theirs. Our entire weekend went off without a hitch and we owe it entirely to this talented team. We couldn't have done it without them.

  • Planning a wedding from 5+ hours away can be very challenging, especially when the venue is a family home and doesn't have your typical wedding infrastructure in place. Katy and her team made the process SO MUCH EASIER! Katy is super organized, very detail-oriented and her passion absolutely shines through in all the work she does. She is very professional but has such a kind, friendly demeanor that she felt more like a friend than a wedding planner! I have nothing but amazing things to say about Katy's team that was on site as well. Colette and Eileen made our vision come together so perfectly. Every single one of our guests raved about how no detail was missed and how absolutely perfect our wedding was, a few mentioning it was the best wedding they've ever been to! Colette and Eileen were very attentive throughout the night (Colette even saved my dress from a blunder with an appetizer going flying!) but not overbearing. I cannot recommend this team enough. They were an absolu... Read more

  • Katy was fabulous to work with, from the earliest stages of finding a venue and booking DJs, she was there with advice at every step of the way. She kept me on my timeline, and helped take away stress with her experience working with vendors in the area. Hands down the best part of working with Katy was actually having her there on the wedding day. She helped keep everything moving smoothly during the getting ready process, and made every finishing detail perfect- from flowers on the cake, to getting our champagne glasses filled at the head table. She went above and beyond, fluffing my dress before walking down the aisle, and helping to take our dog out (who participated in the ceremony!). And to top it off, when we woke up the morning after the wedding, Katy had neatly arranged our card box and guest book in the room, and had our welcome sign and flowers there to greet us as we walked out of our cabin the morning after the wedding. Beyond anything else, having her and her tea... Read more

  • Katy was the perfect wedding planner for us for a number of reason, but if you decide to work with her, know that you will get top level execution, organization and care from her whenever/wherever you may need it. Chris and I were overwhelmed when we started thinking about our wedding. There are so many decisions to make and things to prepare. Once we added Katy to our process through a friend referral, everything became a lot easier and way more fun. She comes with spreadsheets of wedding checklists and timelines to help you brainstorm and get started. Then she holds regular meetings with you to review and keep track of all the little details in every step along the way. She knows upstate NY so well and has all the connections in the area, which is how we found most of our vendors as we planned long distance from CA. She collaborates with other vendors easily. She even met with our venue owners multiple times in our absence to work out logistics and save us trips across t... Read more

  • If you have been looking for a wedding planner, your search should end here, with VanBee & Co. Katy is very knowledgeable, organized, friendly, and accommodating. She is someone you've felt like you've known your whole life, helping to plan your wedding. From our initial contact Katy was collaborative and open to what we were looking for in a wedding planner. As time passed it was clear Katy knew what she was doing and was a very experienced professional. Each month she made sure we both executed what we decided on our list and things needed to do to keep on schedule. Her communication is prompt and clear, and couldn't have been easier. Her relationships with many vendors in the area allowed for easy contact and details to be handled between all involved. Closer to our day, we met and discussed specifics, as if we were drinking coffee with an old friend, we felt reassured things were going smoothly, had no stress about details or meeting with vendors.The day of rehearsal Katy m...

  • My Wife and I live in California but wanted to have our wedding the Saranac Lake region. Planning the wedding from across the country presented some challenges, so we hired VanBee & Co to help us. We were looking to mostly manage the planning process and vendors, but have VanBee & Co keep us on track and help with local coordination, especially day-of. From the start, Katy listened intently for what we wanted and then helped us create a plan to get there. We started by meeting once a month to ensure we were making progress, and Katy was able to ask us questions to fill in a lot of details we didn't think about. Katy was also very well connected in the Saranac Lake region and personally knew many of the vendors we had selected. As the wedding got closer we started meeting more frequently. Katy also helped pick up some of the slack with some vendor coordination and brought on Colette and Eileen to handle day-of coordination. The wedding day could have been more smooth. I fou...

  • Katy and the team at VanBee were one of my favorite parts of wedding planning. Katy has amazing energy, is organized, transparent and experienced, and wants to help you have the wedding you want. As a bride planning a wedding in upstate New York from elsewhere, it was great to have Katy local on the ground who could provide insider tips and suggestions, as well as leverage relationships she had with local vendors and my venue. Katy is fun and energetic, but can be no-nonsense and play the bad cop when you need her to. Katy and her team will do as much or as little as you want them to do of your wedding planning. Want her to do it all from start to finish? Done! Want to do most of it yourself but want some help staying on track plus a pro to be in charge of the day of your wedding (the route I mostly went with)? Done! I had a monthly call with Katy (that got more frequent as we got closer to the wedding) for status checks and instructions on what I should be doing during the next month... Read more

  • There is no way we could have pulled off our wedding without Katy and her team! Throughout the planning process, Katy was always very responsive and provided invaluable guidance, especially with local vendors! During the days leading up to the wedding and the wedding day itself, Katy was extremely calm and both she and her team were true professionals. Despite some last minute change due to bad weather, the whole weekend was seamless! Finally, Katy is a pleasure to work with and I would definitely recommend VanBee &Co to anyone having a wedding in the Adirondacks.

  • Katy is amazing!! She is professional, thoughtful, and detail oriented. She knew all the right questions to ask, and did’t overlook a thing during planning. The day of the wedding, Katy & her staff made sure everything ran smoothly, and I never stressed a bit! My wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to Katy & VanBee Co!

  • Hiring Katy from VanBee Co was the best decision we made for our wedding. She took our vision, made it come to life, and somehow made it even better! Wedding planning was initially a struggle for us but Katy made the process enjoyable and we actually looked forward to our monthly calls. Living 5 hours from our venue should've been stressful, but she made every aspect of planning easy for us. Our wedding day would not have been as special as it was without her guidance and support. We will always be grateful to Katy for all of her help and for making our dream wedding become reality!

  • My husband and I cannot recommend Katy and her team highly enough! Katy was integral to the planning process--making sure everything was done calmly, with plenty of time, and with very little stress, considering the enormity of the task at hand! She gave advice when we asked for it, and enthusiastically, warmly, and realistically supported the ideas we had. Every step of the way, I felt that our plans and ideas were being fully realized by her. She never let ANYTHING drop: she is highly organized and clearly passionate about her job. She is kind and wants to help make this the best day of your life. While highly organized--she is also very calm, which makes you feel that she's in control in a completely NON-stressful way. I am also organized, but with Katy, I felt that I didn't have to be constantly worrying about all the things I didn't know I didn't know! Her expertise and guidance constantly reassured me that everything would be fine and that nothing would be forgotten. We a... Read more

  • We worked with Katy from VanBee & Co. for our wedding, and could not have had a better experience. Katy went above and beyond to make sure not just our wedding, but our engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and welcome party were absolutely perfect. Our wedding was truly so much more special than we ever could've dreamed, and that is largely due to the efforts of VanBee. It's easy to get stressed when planning such a big event, but my confidence in Katy always reassured me. From start to finish, I knew that no matter what, she would be there making sure we had the best day of our lives. You cannot go wrong using VanBee- they are extremely responsive, professional, and affordable. We highly recommend using them for your big day!

  • Not a single complaint here. VanBee & Co is 100% worth every penny. Katy has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to wedding planning and you can't go wrong with her team's level of service, commitment, and dedication to making your wedding as painless as possible. We could not have done it without you guys!

  • Planning an outdoor wedding with a tent in the Adirondacks can be tricky - especially when living in Colorado while planning. Hiring Katy and her team was a no-brainer as we could never have accomplished it all to make our wedding so successful. They were just on point and organized throughout the entire year of wedding planning. She was able to make local contacts with ease and her recommendations were on point with our style and budget. I've never been taken care of so well as I was on my wedding week and day-of. The personal attention was positively overwhelming. Any issues were taken care of without us needing to worry. And when the unforseen insects decided to invade our outside reception and 'bug' our guests, the team ran to the store and bought citronella candles. While I had very specific requests and ideas about how I envisioned my wedding, they never balked or blinked an eye. I had many of my own decorations for my wedding and she took what I had and ran with it. K... Read more
