About Us

Katelyn setting up a wedding

About the Planner.

I’m Katelyn, Owner and WPIC Certified Lead Wedding Coordinator at Forever & Fancy.

I am so thankful to have found an industry that I am so passionate about. This industry is so special, as it celebrates love! A wedding may only be a single day, but it is a day that will be remembered for the rest of your life. This is why it is so important to me to help make your vision come to life, create everlasting memories, and allow you to focus on being in the moment.

When I am not planning events, you will likely find me spending time with friends and family. I am also someone who enjoys travelling to new places throughout the world, not only to see the sites, but also to learn and embrace the culture. 

You will often find me sipping iced coffee, regardless of the time of year. I enjoy kayaking in the summer, and in the winter I typically hibernate inside, snuggled up in a blanket. 

Other hobbies include music, photography, and organizing things (yes, for fun).

Love Notes

"Katelyn was beyond helpful when it came to planning and executing everything we needed to do at the wedding. She was extremely knowledgeable about what needed to be done and was able to give us so many little tips that made the day, the pictures, the prep, and everything about our experience a lot better. She is organized, and thinks of everything! During our Skype call she thought of every detail that needed to be done. During our ceremony it rained and we were able to count on Katelyn to keep things moving with ease. She rolled with punches as our plans moved back and forth between plan A and plan F. Before we could think of what needed to be done, she had already done it. We can say without a doubt that this wedding would not have happened to the level of organization and care we wanted for our wedding day, without her. From the prep before the wedding, running the rehearsal, going over everything we forgot, to the day of where she coordinated everything in perfect synchronized fashion, we would highly recommend Katelyn for any bride and groom to be. Weddings are stressful, especially with all the craziness happening in the world. Our wedding got a lot less stressful when we had Katelyn helping out. We would HIGHLY recommend Katelyn as your wedding planner!"

"Working with Katelyn was incredible. She is extremely organized and detail oriented. I was initially worried when selecting a coordinator that they may not be as detailed as I am, but that was far from the truth with Katelyn. She thought of everything that I could have possibly imagined and more. I didn’t need to worry about anything! When it came to preparing for the wedding itself, she made everything very smooth for us especially considering we were living overseas. It was a seamless experience for us while she guided us step by step through exactly what we needed to do, making sure nothing was overlooked. When it came to our wedding day she was incredibly organized. We literally just had to show up and enjoy ourselves. I am sure there were things that went wrong behind the scenes but we did not know about any of that because she kept running everything so smoothly. The support was incredible. If you are planning a wedding, I cannot recommend Katelyn enough. The all inclusive services that she offers was fantastic. Hire her! You will absolutely not regret it!"

"We chose Katelyn as our wedding coordinator shortly after we got engaged. She helped us completely plan essentially 2 weddings due to COVID. Katelyn was flexible and easy to deal with throughout our 2 year engagement. On our wedding weekend she ran the rehearsal and made sure everything was in place for our day. I didn’t have to worry about being in 20 places at once because she made sure everything was perfect. Highly recommend!"

"I highly recommend Katelyn at Forever & Fancy. Katelyn is professional and thoughtful and always goes above and beyond. She is passionate about what she does and it really shows through her work. Katelyn helped me to plan my wedding through the beginning of Covid. She kept me updated on all changes in restrictions that were happening and helped me through all the decisions and plans that’s needed to be done to accommodate the never ending changes to restrictions. She was quick on her feet and was able to solve problems that arose fast and effectively. She took a hands on approach and was always there when I needed her. She made my covid wedding as stress free as possible and I am very grateful for all her efforts."

The biggest difference is that a wedding coordinator works for you.

A wedding coordinator and venue coordinator have different responsibilities. While your needs will be both of their top priorities, a venue coordinator will focus slightly more on the venue itself, and making sure it is prepped and ready to go.

A Wedding coordinator is there to help ensure that you can live in the moment while they take care of all of the moving parts and every little detail. They will also solve things that are bound to come up, communicate with your vendors, and be there for you in any way you need.

While a venue coordinator is a fantastic asset to have if your venue offers this, they are not a replacement for a wedding coordinator. Remember that they work for the venue and will likely only handle the big picture elements of your day. 

Absolutely! LOVE IS LOVE and everyone has the right to be treated equally.

YES! Forever & Fancy has eco values and wants to help educate couples on how to make their wedding eco friendly. Whether you want to be as eco friendly as possible, or just want to consider a few things to help, I am happy to assist! 

 Forever & Fancy will be donating a portion of our profits from every full planning, partial planning, and month of coordination package to a not-for-profit focusing on carbon offsetting. So just by booking with Forever & Fancy, you are helping the environment!
