From our very first interaction, I felt like I was talking wedding details with a friend, not someone who was trying to get my business. Our very first meeting, prior to even hiring Katie was incredibly detailed and we covered things that I hadn’t even thought of yet. I knew instantly that Katie was genuine and a true professional.
