Here's what others have said about working with the ladies behind Blue Ribbon Wedding & Event Design!
“I met Katie at a Wedding Expo and immediately loved her and her style and knew she was the one I wanted to have there for us on our wedding day. Katie was or coordinator as well as our florist and was impeccable at both. From day one she was so pleasant to work with and so knowledgeable and helpful, the perfect person to work with. She made me feel so comfortable and confidant that everything would turn out perfect and because of her it did.
My floral designs were breathtaking, beautiful beyond words. Her attention to detail in everything she did was so impressive. She meet with us a month out and took everything off our shoulders onto hers, she made it so easy for me in the most stressful time, she just took care of everything, the epitome of what your want in a wedding planner. My venue even commented on how amazing she was. I could not imagine my day have gone the way it did with out her and her team there to make our day magical. Blue Ribbon Wedding Event and Design go above and beyond to make everything just as you imagined but only better! Katie I could never thank you enough for everything you did for us, you are truly an amazing person, kind and professional. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work, you made our day perfect.”

“Emily was such a calm and knowledgeable part of our planning process right from the start. Her genuine passion and excitement was evident the very first time we met 10 months before our wedding and was present all the way to the big day! When I was stressing over endless seeming to do lists, and worrying about how it was all going to come together, Emily was always able to provide a sense of organization and ease, helping us prioritize tasks and projects so everything felt more manageable.”
“Em was on top of everything and there wasn’t a detail forgotten about. She kept me organized and on top of my “to-do” list – which was something I desperately needed! In addition, she gave me so many great modern and unique ideas for decorations, place settings and personal touches for the night that it truly wouldn’t have been the same with out her.”
“I cannot even begin to explain how amazing Katie and her team at Blue Ribbon are! I was told all week and on my wedding day that I was the calmest bride anyone had seen, and I owe that all to Katie! Katie was always available to email or text with last minute questions, and always thought of things (and had them done!) before I even thought of them. Katie is by far the sweetest person I have had the pleasure of working with, and was always on top of everything! Out of all of the million decisions I made for our wedding, hiring Blue Ribbon Wedding and Event Design was definitely my best one! I could not have had the perfect wedding day without Katie (and Kait, of course!) and I am so thankful that they were able to be a part of our big day!!”

“Look no more! Blue Ribbon Wedding & Event Design is your one stop shop for everything you need! Katie and her team personalized everything for our wedding. They really took the time to meet with us one on one to put together our vision and turn it into a reality. They are true professionals and have a heart and passion for what they do! So much to say about this great company, so let me break it down into areas I know we struggled with and how they were able to help: The team was able to start the process on where and how to begin, prioritizing our ideas and projects with complete timeline preparation / synchronization. They also constructed and delivered a detailed timeline for the Day-Of for vendors/setup/reception flow. Talk about a total stress relief!!! They constructed a complete timeline for the weekend- including rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, photos, ceremony, transportation etc. They even took our ideas and incorporated some of our ideas in the design. They took full control in setting up and placing personal items as well as cleaning up, packing personal items, and returning them to us after the wedding. This was a really nice touch since we had some personal items we wanted to integrate into the design. It made it feel so special. Communication throughout the entire planning process with vendors & venue. They even provided a full and thorough review of all of our contracts, plugging holes, & confirming/adjusting timing as needed. Moral of the story…if you truly want a professional team who cares about you and your team and can do it all…why not trust the experts. My heart goes out to Blue Ribbon Wedding for helping us create a truly beautiful wedding that will be in our hearts forever. They are truly inclusive and embrace diversity and equality! They are now an extension of our family and that’s exactly what you can expect from this company!”

“Thorough doesn’t begin to describe the way in which Em conducts her business; her organization spans from the second you begin speaking about wedding plans and designing a timeline through the moment the last box is packed after the reception.”
“Too much beauty. None of which would have been possible without Blue Ribbon Weddings. Katie, you are something really special. This woman is a total miracle worker of a wedding coordinator and stays looking cute and keeping calm no matter what. If anyone in FL is planning a wedding and needs some help, I highly recommend this wonderful, kind woman! Thank you for helping make this the wedding of her dreams (like, for real) :) !!!”
— Allison Wannemacher (Kristen's MOH)
“Katie is THE BEST of the best! She will make you feel like you are the most important person and is sweet and kind and is the perfect one to plan your event! Trust me you won’t regret it!”
— Jennifer Perez
“I met Katie by chance and I honestly cannot imagine my wedding day without her help. Katie went above and beyond at every single opportunity. She was totally organized with every detail we gave her and she asked questions we hadn’t thought of. Katie came into the planning process about three months before our big day, so she had a lot of catching up to do. She exceeded all of our expectations. The defining moment came about four days before the wedding. I found out that there would be a marathon held in the town where we were getting married that could potentially prevent our guests from getting to our venue. I texted Katie in the morning. And by the evening when I finished work, she had contacted the DIRECTOR of the race to get a map of all the road closures. I was floored. Katie took incredibly good care of us and helped our day flow flawlessly. THANK YOU KATIE!”
— Shannon Boyle
“Katie and her crew were absolutely wonderful! She was both the florist and planner for our wedding. She made everything so beautiful and truly captured what I was imagining for our big day. Best decision I made was hiring Blue Ribbon! Katie and her girls are the best! Thank you can’t begin to express my gratitude for all her hard work.”

“Pre-Wedding Comments ♥
Reliable, resourceful, and so caring. Loved loved loved working with Katie ♥ Full of great ideas, very detailed and organized. I’m approaching my wedding day with such relief!
Post-Wedding Update ♥ Perfect Memories!!
I was absolutely blown away by the quality of service and dedication Katie at Blue Ribbon had for me and my wedding! With a tight budget, she worked very hard to bring quality and quantity in every aspect of the wedding I’d always dreamed. She was readily available by phone and email for any of my questions, or even last minute add ons or suggestions! She was very thorough in her preparation and making sure every aspect of the wedding (even confirming if I wanted to do this or that) was noted and had an plan. It wasn’t even a long process because Katie knows weddings and knows how to be efficient and resourceful. That was super helpful on a busy schedule like mine.
Katie is also very professional. Throughout the wedding season, she was in contact with my other vendors and bridal party for planning and scheduling. She and the vendors got along FABULOUSLY, which I heard some planners like to be super controlling (said a dj friend of mine). I had nothing but compliments about what a helpful and friendly person Katie was from my guests and family!!
More than just a planner and coordinator, Katie made a wonderful friend the moment before I walked down the aisle and my nerves got me super emotional! She was gracious and understanding, and shared comforting words to make me feel supported and ready. That last thing I need before making a big decision like “I Do” was a stranger by my side. She became my friend! I was super thankful for that almost over everything else!!
I definitely would recommend Blue Ribbon Weddings to all of my friends because I have no regrets looking back on my wedding day. She decorated and coordinated the most beautiful wedding ever...and I couldn’t be more happy that it was my wedding! I have nothing but great feedback from my guests, family, and new in-laws about the wedding being lovely and fantastic...and that’s all a bride wants to hear!!
I couldn’t be anymore grateful. Thank you Katie!!!!”

“I worked with Katie at a recent wedding I shot at the Birdsong Barn in Titusville and she was wonderful! She made the day run as smoothly as possible, even with the unplanned rain storms. She was professional, organized and fun to work with! Not to mention her floral arrangements were to die for! I would highly recommend Blue Ribbon for your wedding, you won’t regret it!”
