bride, Elizabeth D.

"I cannot speak highly enough regarding Kate's competence, professionalism, adaptability, creativity, empathy, timeliness, professional relationships, and ability to manage one of the most special days of
our lives."

client, Lainie J.

"She plans every detail so you don't have to. And she has a keen eye to details, the likes of which I've never seen. She anticipated issues before they arose, guided me and our committee throughout the process at every step."

groom, Casey T.

"As we reflect back on the experience, my wife and I can’t think of a single hiccup worth mentioning which is a testament to the planning, preparation, and execution of Kate and her team."

bride, Lauren W.

"I was blown away by how beautiful our space was on our wedding day, including lots of small decor details that fit our event beautifully and Kate styled herself. To all future brides: hire Kate! It will be the start of an enjoyable, fun-filled wedding."

bride, Brooke S.

"Our day would not have been nearly as enjoyable without knowing that Sarah was running the show. She was incredibly organized, kind, and took charge in a non-bossy kind of way. In the months leading up to the wedding she was extremely responsive to my emails, calls, texts etc. and always got back to me when I needed anything big or small."

bride, Mandi E.

"Where do we begin? Kate Whelan was more than a wedding planner, she was a friend and confidant that became like family. She listened to everything my husband and I wanted out of our wedding day and made all of our dreams come true."

bride, Gillian S.

"KWE literally saved us - they got us through 2 venues cancelling, one only 48 hours ahead of our big day. It would have been a nightmare to deal with those issues on our own and there is absolutely no way we could have re-planned the entire event with only 48 hours to go."

bride, Richelle M.

"Kate paid close attention to all the little details between both of our venues, coordinated with our vendors, and created a thorough timeline of events (which together we listed what we wanted, and she kept us on schedule so that every box was checked by the end of the night!)"

client, Rachel L.

"From the VERY beginning Kate understood our vision and was with us every step of the way to make it happen. And we had BIG dreams. I'm talking four days of events with 20+ vendors and all in the middle of the woods with no cell phone reception in site. Kate was on it."

bride, Ashley J

"Kate not only has an eye for design, Kate is also extremely detailed, organized, and timely in her communication. My now husband is a project manager, and was very impressed with Kate's level of attention to detail in her project plan and timeline. There was not one aspect of our wedding that had not been thought of and planned."

bride, Julianne T.

"I had a few moments where things just got overwhelming and I could not deal with my wedding. Kate's professionalism and kindness existed throughout the planning process, but it really shined here. If I was having trouble, she would patiently explain things to me as many times as I needed, or advise me when I was not sure how to proceed."

groom, Conor S

"My partner and I used KWE for our wedding and we could not be happier. She has an extensive list of vendors that she trusts and has worked with in the past and was able to help us select vendors and contact them on our behalf, which saved us a lot of work and worry especially given we live 2k miles away."

bride, Helena T.

"The most impressive thing about Kate is that not only is she organized and an expert at coordination she has an incredible eye for design. I picked my colors and then kind of threw up my hands and just completely relied on her to help design the wedding. The end result was incredible."

Groom, Andrew J.

"Kate was also poised and graceful when interacting with difficult family members. She has a way of communicating with others that is not belittling but is instead factual and centered with their needs. In this way, Kate's communication skills allowed all to feel like their voices were heard. I really respect this about her."

bride, Sarah F.

"THANK YOU doesn't even begin to describe how grateful we are for you and your team. Everyone at the event was in awe and so were our close friends and family. A groomsmen asked 'Can she come to Singapore?!'"

bride, Ana C

"We did the all inclusive package. Along with a very detailed breakdown of wedding tasks, what I appreciated most about this option was the unlimited e mails and contact we had with her during the wedding planning process. Her and her team were extremely responsive the last few months before our wedding date, and pulled off some very last minute projects that made our day very special."

bride, Kelly M.

"Kate is a creative genius and has a knack for making a vision come to life. From the first day, Kate understood what I was after and came up with MANY creative and unique ideas that made our wedding one of a kind and completely ours. It is this piece of the process that makes Kate and her team truly worth the money."

client, Leah S.

"I had very solid ideas and hopes for what the day would look like and feel like. Kate and her team did an amazing job of listening to those ideas, making suggestions, recommending vendors, answering countless emails, working with an array of vendors in Sonoma County and overall being really awesome to work with and making the day more beautiful and seamless than we ever could have hoped for!"

groom, Scott V.

"On the day of, we faced the possibility of rain and Kate made on-the-go adjustments with grace. By the time we arrived on site, everything looked beautiful, even better, than we had planned. It didn't rain, the weather was incredible, and the wedding (and its component parts) moved along effortlessly."

bride, Tracey M.

"She really listened to what we wanted and translated our ideas into reality. She transformed the space into the rock and roll atmosphere my husband wanted but it was also elegant and glamorous for me. I highly recommend Kate, it was the best wedding decision I made other than saying yes to my husband."

bride, Jillian L.

"There are so many wonderful things I can say about Kate and her team. I am in love with her. She made planning my wedding so easy! The thing I love most about this awesome woman is her ability to take all of a brides crazy ideas and make them beautiful, organized and relatable."

bride, Allison P.

"She made fantastic suggestions when she felt they were welcome or especially important, but never tried to force anything on us or talk us into something we weren’t comfortable with. I can’t begin to explain how great it felt to trust her 100% and know that everything was under control on our wedding day."

bride, Jenny M.

When someone who I had invited +1 showed up with +2, I simply told Kate and it was taken care of. When I forgot to put my veil on, Kate was right there with it. All the accessories and little details were handled by Kate. I was never stressed about my wedding. Instead, I enjoyed my wonderful beautiful flawless day.

father of the bride, Gerard M.

"As the father of the bride, our wedding was a logistical challenge because it was a destination wedding at a vineyard. Kate knows details and the wedding was a huge success because of her attention to detail. No aspect was too small to avoid her scrutiny. She ensured that every vendor knew what they had to do, when they had to do it, and the quality she expected."

groom, Garrett M.

"Kate quickly took the hands of two somewhat misanthropic grooms and helped them put on what had to be one of the most amazing weddings ever conceived. Come the day of there was no stress at all. We knew that Kate was on site and that everything would be handled beautifully. And it was."


"Through the Uncertainty of planning a wedding multiple times while navigating covid, kate was front and center reassuring us that it was going to be the most wonderful day, and it was exactly that. you can tell she genuinely cares about every detail, concern, or question you throw at her."

BRIDE, olivia M.

"she truly shined on the wedding day where she took care of everything! As my wedding was in my parents' backyard, I was worried my mom might not be able to enjoy the festivities, but sarah took it all on and my mother had the time of her life (as did I!). We can't thank sarah enough for helping us on the most perfect day!"

bride, Emily L.

"Kate WhElan Events absolutely saved our wedding. Four days before our wedding, we had to change venues and Sarah was there every step of the way..."
