I am a travel bug and LOVE experiencing new places! Planning to say I do on the peak of a mountain? Reading your vows under the mist of a waterfall? Holding hands and walking off into the sunset on a beach? Destination weddings are a specialty that I absolutely love designing and planning.

Can’t tell you what a jewel Katlyn was to us during our planning process. We fed her ideas and she built a beautiful wedding around our vision adding to it and making it a dream for my daughter. She kept everyone on track and kept us all calm the day of, her and her staff were simply amazing. She is very organized and detailed. There is no need to call anyone else for your event planning...she’s your girl!

- Vicki Stephenson

Katlyn is such a sweet person that truly cares about your big day. She checked up on my weekly throughout my wedding planning process to make sure all the details were in placed and that I wasn’t stressed out. She worked so hard to make sure that everything was perfect and she did it with a smile. She is such a light to be around and she does everything was such politeness & professionalism. I couldn’t imagine planning my wedding without her.

Katlyn took my wedding on by storm! Literally.

(It rained on my wedding day but I didn't even know it, because Katlyn kept me away from all windows and preoccupied to even worry abut the weather!) Months leading up to my wedding, Katlyn made herself available for every little detail and answered every single phone call! She met with me more times than I think we even agreed upon in her contract - just to calm my nerves. Thank you to Katlyn & her team for making my wedding such a success!

Katlyn was absolutely amazing! She is the reason that my wedding turned out like a fairy tale. Every detail was perfect thanks to her!

- Sarah Cate Fordman

Katlyn and her team were outstanding on my daughter’s wedding day. With so many things going on that day, I would have never dreamed that all essential pieces would fall in to place beautifully and flawlessly by her and her staff. She made the wedding day essentially stress-free for me. Even throughout the wedding planning process, Katlyn was always reassuring and ready to please.

Thank you, Katlyn!

Katlyn planned 2 weddings for my daughter (the first was cancelled due to the virus) She planned and excited a second wedding with totally different venue theme etc.,. In 2 months. The perfect small unique beach wedding . We all enjoyed the day . Thanks to this amazing lady. She is always so kind, positive , and professional . She is a real make it happen person . Thank you for a beautiful wedding.

Katlyn was so easy to work with! From finding a venue to handling all the details with vendors, she was a dream. When things had to change due to COVID, she didn’t blink an eye. The very best part? I was able to enjoy the day as Mother of the Bride without ANY worries. Katlyn handled it all.

Katlyn and her team are the best! No one wants to get married during a pandemic, but Katlyn made it as stress-free as possible and made sure we had the perfect day. She is professional, organized, and detail oriented. I would recommend Southern Gates to anyone planning a wedding!!

No bride ever expects their wedding to fall in the middle of a pandemic. With all of the uncertainty going on in the world, Katlyn was there to hold me hand and say “we will make whatever you want to happen, happen”. For me, this involved changing a 250+ people barn hometown wedding, to a immediate family only destination elopement style wedding on the beach. I didn’t have time to make it happen, I’m a full time educator and coach, and definitely not the DIY type gal. Katlyn made every call, every check in, and every crafty detail happen so that I could continue to be the woman I am, and still be a beautiful bride. She and my amazing vendor team came together and gave me the wedding I never knew I wanted but was everything and more that I could have dreamed of. No way it would have happened without her help. Brides, you can’t do it all and you shouldn’t. Let Katlyn do what she does best, and lighten your bridal load.

You will not be sorry!

Katlyn was such a great wedding planner! She went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect! She was very good at eliminating stress for us in preparation for our big day! She always offered to meet us anytime we needed her to discuss wedding issues, she even came to my house to print out vinyl for our entrance mirrors, and she always instilled positivity in us by telling us how much progress we have made in the wedding planning process! She was very good at making sure all the vendors were on the same page and knew where they were suppose to be and when! She also was well organized! Every time we met with her she had a checklist of what we have accomplished and what we still have left to do! This definitely helped keep us on track because having a wedding can be very overwhelming and get out of hand very quickly!

Katlyn goes above and beyond! She is smart, kind, thinks of everything and pays attention to every single detail. Katlyn and her team made our wedding PERFECT, even through a: 1) pandemic, 2) Saharan dust storm, & 3) pop-up rainstorm!

Katlyn is a pleasure to work with. She has such a kind, poised, and professional addition to a creative eye for design and out of the box thinking! She is wonderful to work with and I can not sing her enough praises.

Katlyn made my wedding neat/night so easy and so relaxing! I am so blessed to have had her as my wedding coordinator. They are THE BEST!!!
