Meet the At Last Weddings Team: Katie!

Happy Thursday everyone! What a beautiful day it is, + what better time than to introduce Katie, one of the very first coordinators here with At Last! Katie has an extensive background working events + knows how to handle anything that is thrown her way. Dedicated to ensuring everything goes as planned, but also knowing how to go with the flow, Katie is a key member to the At Last team + we wouldn't have it any other way!

How did you get started in the wedding planning industry?

I was a student at UCF studying Event Management. All students must meet internship requirements, and when I saw there was an opportunity in the wedding industry with At Last, I was so excited! I still remember having my first interview with Jaclyn. We bonded over both being in the Event Management program + in sororities.

How long have you been with At Last Weddings?

Over 10 years, wow time flies! 

What is your favorite part of a wedding day?

I LOVE when the newlyweds walk down the aisle after officially being pronounced! There is so much joy in that moment- knowing they just officially became partners for life and they are always ready to party it up! 

What is the most memorable wedding you've had?

To be honest, every wedding is memorable and special in their own way because of our unique couples, but if I have to pick my most memorable moment it would be when I was able to help Jen, my At Last co-worker with her special day! It was so fun to meet her family + friends and get to watch her be the bride!

What was the most rewarding part of planning your wedding?

Honestly, just having all of our family + friends in one place was so special. Especially seeing them dance and having a great time- it really was the best day of our lives! 

If you could change one thing when planning your wedding, what would it be?

As a wedding planner, I was very mindful of the vendors + making sure things were good for them! I had amazing vendors + everything was great, but there were a few times I should have relaxed + been more in the moment- enjoying being the bride- vs worrying if we were helping keep the vendors on track + making their jobs easy!

Any advice for our couples?

Don't forget to speak up + share what you want out of your day! Do the things that will make you the happiest- not what you think your wedding day should look like. Also, just let the details go + have fun once the actual wedding rolls around. Soak it all up because it goes so fast- we are here to worry about all of the details for you!  

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

My fun fact is that people say my dog reminds them of me and I'm ok with that. I think she's cute! 

Beach or mountains and why? 

Mountains! The beach is so accessible to us, so the mountains feel more special and like a true getaway!
