SAGE & STEM BLEW US AWAY AND TRULY GAVE US THE WEDDING OF OUR DREAMS! WITHIN THE FIRST FEW MINUTES OF TALKING WITH KATIE, I KNEW SHE UNDERSTOOD MY SPECIFIC VISION FOR MY WEDDING DAY AND I WAS SO CONFIDENT THAT SHE WOULD BRING MY DREAMS TO LIFE. THROUGHOUT THE PLANNING PROCESS, KATIE WAS CONSTANTLY COMMUNICATING WITH ME, CREATING NEW IDEAS AND CONCEPTS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, GETTING TO KNOW US AS A COUPLE. NOT ONLY WAS SHE INVESTED IN PUTTING TOGETHER A BEAUTIFUL EVENT, BUT SHE INVESTED IN US AS PEOPLE WHICH WAS MOST IMPORTANT TO ME.THE LADIES AT S&S LAUGHED WITH US, CRIED WITH US AND CELEBRATED OUR MARRIAGE, ALL WHILE SURPASSING MY EXPECTATIONS WITH AN INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL SETUP FOR OUR CEREMONY, COCKTAIL HOUR AND RECEPTION. ALL OF MY WEDDING IDEAS AND DREAMS I CARED SO DEEPLY ABOUT WERE EXACTLY HOW I IMAGINED THEY WOULD BE. I COULDN'T BE MORE THANKFUL TO HAVE HAD A TEAM LIKE SAGE & STEM TO TRUST WITH ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS OF MY LIFE! THANKS SO MUCH!!

IT GIVES ME SUCH A GREAT HONOR TO WRITE A REVIEW ABOUT THE AMAZING KATIE! LET ME START BY SAYING SHE IS A LIFE SAVOR! ONE OF MY FRIENDS RECOMMENDED KATIE, AND LIKE MOST BRIDES I WAS TERRIFIED TO LET SOMEONE TAKE OVER…SHE WAS SO CALM DURING THE ENTIRE PROCESS AND SHE LET ME KNOW 100% THAT SHE WOULD TAKE CARE OF EVERY DETAIL AND TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY ABOUT A THING. I AM A CONTROL FREAK SO FOR ME THAT WAS HARD, UNTIL I WALKED IN ON MY WEDDING DAY. WOW, WAS ALL I COULD SAY. TEARS FILLED MY EYES AS EVERYTHING I HAD EVER IMAGINED CAME TO LIFE. THE COUNTLESS HOURS OF TEXTS I SENT TO KATIE AT 2AM ALL CAME TOGETHER AND I WAS MORE THEN PLEASED. ALL THE THINGS I PINNED ON PINTEREST LITERALLY CAME TO LIFE. SHE DID IT, SHE CREATED MY DREAM. SINCE THE WEDDING DAY I HAVE CONTINUALLY BEEN TOLD “THAT WAS THE BEST WEDDING I HAVE EVER BEEN TOO!” IT’S SO TRUE, KATIE AND HER TEAM PULLED IT OFF, I HAD ABSOLUTELY NO WORRIES THE DAY OF AND I WAS ABLE TO COMPLETELY ENJOY OUR DAY. I WILL RECOMMEND KATIE TO EVERY SINGLE BRIDE I MEET BECAUSE TO ME SHE IS THE MOST AMAZING AND THOUGHTFUL PLANNER I HAVE EVER MET. SHE WILL TRULY PUT HOURS OF WORK INTO YOUR WEDDING AND MAKE IT EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT. THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH KATIE FOR MAKING OUR DAY THE MOST MEMORABLE DAY OF OUR LIVES! WE ARE TRULY IN LOVE WITH YOUR WORK AND WE ARE SO HAPPY THAT WE CHOSE YOU AS OUR PLANNER!

HIRING KATIE WAS PROBABLY THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT THING I DID WHEN PLANNING MY WEDDING. I HAPPENED UPON HER AMAZING INSTAGRAM AND FELL IN LOVE WITH HER STYLE, IT WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS ENVISIONING FOR OUR WEDDING. I CONTACTED HER AND SHE EMAILED ME BACK WITHIN MINUTES AND I KNEW SHE WAS MY WEDDING PLANNING SOULMATE. SHE ALWAYS KNEW EXACTLY WHAT I WAS ENVISIONING AND WAS SO AMAZING TO WORK WITH. I LOVED ALL OF HER SUGGESTIONS AND ALL OF THE VENDORS THAT SHE RECOMMENDED WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND PERFECT. WHEN I BOOKED HER I WASN’T EVEN THINKING ABOUT HOW INSTRUMENTAL SHE WOULD BE AT THE REHEARSAL, BUT I CANNOT IMAGINE TRYING TO GET EVERYONE ON POINT WITHOUT HER! THE DAY OF THE WEDDING EVERYTHING WAS BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED. I KNEW FROM THE VERY BEGINNING THAT I COULD PUT ALL OF MY EXTREMELY DETAIL ORIENTED AND TYPE-A DREAMS INTO HER HANDS AND SHE WOULD PULL IT OFF FLAWLESSLY. I ALWAYS HAD SUCH PEACE OF MIND THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY OF MY LIFE WAS IN HER HANDS, AND THAT WAS SO PRICELESS THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO THE WEDDING. I WOULD MOST DEFINITELY RECOMMEND KATIE AND HER TEAM TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE, SHE GAVE MY HUSBAND AND I THE MOST PERFECT DAY AND WE WILL ALWAYS BE SO GRATEFUL TO HER FOR MAKING IT SO SPECIAL!

I MISTAKENLY TRIED TAKING ON WEDDING PLANNING ON MY OWN AND REALIZED I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO IT ALL MYSELF ON THE DAY.. I WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!!! EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T HAVE HER THROUGH THE ENTIRE PROCESS, FROM THE MOMENT WE GOT IN CONTACT SHE COMPLETELY TOOK THE REINS AND I DIDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT A THING. SHE STAYED IN CONTACT WITH ME AT ALL TIMES ALL DAY UP UNTIL THE BIG DAY TO MAKE SURE SHE KNEW EVERYTHING I WANTED AND NEEDED TO MAKE MY DAY PERFECT. KATIE AND HER AWESOME TEAM RAN THE SHOW ON MY WEDDING DAY AND I LOVED IT SO MUCH THEY HAD TO DRAG ME AWAY. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I WOULD'VE FUNCTIONED WITHOUT THIS TEAM! FROM ORGANIZING TABLE DECORATIONS TO MAKING SURE ALL THE VENDORS SHOWED UP ON TIME AND HAD WHAT WE NEEDED. SHE SAW MY VISION AND PUT ALL MY DECORATIONS TOGETHER EVEN BETTER THEN I DREAMED! KATIE WOULD COME TAP ME AND GIVE ME "10 MINUTES TO CAKE TIME", AND "5 MINUTES TIL YOUR FIRST DANCE" AND HAD EVERYONE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME. EVEN MADE SURE MY PARENTS AND BRIDAL PARTY WERE WHERE THEY NEEDED TO BE AT ALL TIMES SO THEY DIDN'T MISS A THING! NOT TO MENTION ALL THE GIRLS ARE SO SWEET AND FUN TO WORK WITH. MY WEDDING DAY WAS THE MOST STRESS FREE DAY OF MY LIFE BECAUSE KATIE WORKED SO HARD TO MAKE IT THAT WAY. I WOULD USE THEM FOR EVERY OCCASION! I KNOW KATIE PROFESSIONALLY AND PERSONALLY AND SHE IS THE SWEETEST TO WORK WITH AND TRULY PUTS HER HEART INTO ALL HER EVENTS. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

S&S EVENT DESIGN WAS MY ABSOLUTE WEDDING ANGEL! FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, KATIE WAS ACTIVE AND ON TOP OF EVERYTHING! SHE ALLOWED ME TO SEND HER PICTURES OF WHAT I EXACTLY WANTED AND HELPED MAKE IT A REALITY. SINCE I WAS ACROSS THE COUNTRY PLANNING THE WEDDING, SHE WENT AND VISITED MY VENUE AND VENDORS IN MY PLACE AND SHE REFERRED ME TO A FLORIST, AND THEN WORKED WITH HER ORDERING MY FLOWERS. ALL WHILE SENDING DOZENS OF PHOTOS ALONG THE WAY. SHE IS HAPPY, HARDWORKING AND DOES EVERYTHING IN HER POWER TO MAKE YOUR DAY EXACTLY HOW YOU WANT IT! SHE CREATED BANNERS AND DECORATIONS FOR ME AND WENT OUT OF HER WAY TO GET EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED. THEN SHIPPED THEM ALL TO ME AFTER THE WEDDING SO I COULD KEEP THEM! TALK ABOUT A SAINT! SHE IS SO FLEXIBLE WITH MEETING UP AND MAKES YOUR EVENT AS STRESS FREE AS POSSIBLE! SO GRATEFUL FOR ALL SHE DID IN MAKING MY WEDDING PERFECT! I THANK MY LUCKY STARS FOR HER, HER TEAM AND ALL THEIR HARD WORK!

S + S EVENT DESIGN WAS MY SAVING GRACE. I HAVE THREE DAUGHTERS AND AFTER THE FIRST GOT MARRIED MY HUSBAND AND I DECIDED A WEDDING PLANNER WAS A MUST AFTER CLUELESSLY PLANNING ONE WEDDING.  I COULDN'T IMAGINE WHAT MY DAUGHER AND SON-IN-LAWS WEDDING DAY WOULD HAVE BEEN WITHOUT KATIE AND HER TEAM. DESPITE EVERYTHING SEEMINGLY GOING WRONG, THE MOMENT WE STEPPED INTO LEAH'S RECEPTION IT WAS IF ALL OF OUR WORRIES MELTED AWAY. WITHIN 15 MINUTES OF US TELLING HER WHAT WAS WRONG AND GIVING HER PHONE NUMBERS SHE HAD EVERYTHING HANDLED. SHE SO SELFLESSLY HELPED WITH CATERING SERVING, CUT THE CAKE, COMPLETING OUR FLORAL CENTERPIECES WITHIN MINUTES OF THE WEDDING RECEPTION START ALL WHILE TENDING TO BOTH SIDES OF THE FAMILY AND A STRESSED OUT BRIDE. DID I MENTION WE LIVE IN UTAH AND KATIE HADN'T MET US UNTIL THE DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING? WHAT A BLESSING S&S WAS TO US. I HIGHLY SUGGEST S&S EVENT DESIGN TO ANYONE I MEET THAT IS PLANNING A WEDDING. SHE WILL BE PLANNING OUR OTHER DAUGHTERS WEDDING WITHOUT A DOUBT. SHE GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND HER "CALL OF DUTY".
