- Forever & Fancy
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).

Frequently Asked Questions
YOU CAN HIRE A WEDDING COORDINATOR IMMEDIATELY AFTER GETTING ENGAGED. MOST COUPLES DECIDE TO BOOK 12-18 MONTHS IN ADVANCE. IT IS IMPORTANT TO BOOK AS SOON AS YOU CAN AS SOON AS YOU KNOW WHO YOU WOULD LIKE TO WORK WITH TO ENSURE THEY DO NOT BECOME FULLY BOOKED FOR YOUR IDEAL DATE.
THIS TIME IS A CHANCE FOR US TO EGT TO KNOW ONE ANOTHER, FOR ME TO GET TO KNOW WHAT TYPE OF WEDDING YOU ARE HOPING FOR, AND TO WALK YOU THROUGH AN OVERVIEW OF THE FOREVER & FANCY PLANNING PROCESS.

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!
