"I had the pleasure of working closely with Catherine/Big Day Of for my wedding this past August. We are based in NYC and had our wedding in Napa, so planning a wedding across the country was something I was not going to be able to do on my own…I made the right choice going with Catherine. Catherine is absolutely phenomenal and exactly what I needed to make my wedding dreams come true. She was incredibly detail oriented, a great communicator both with me and with all of our vendors, and was such a helpful sounding board when I was making decisions. I am very type-A, but of course hadn't planned a wedding before, so needed a lot of help keeping all of the to-dos organized and making sure everything was getting done on time and in the 'right' order. Our regular check-ins throughout the process and her meticulous organization were so helpful in keeping me on track along the way. All of this really helped ease the ever-present wedding stress. The week of our wedding, Catherine was there every step of the way and she and her team were so attentive during our wedding weekend. Everything went absolutely perfectly, we did not have even one little hiccup. I can't recommend her enough, I wish I could work with her on every other event I host going forward”
"We worked with her as a full service planner for our wedding at Stanly Ranch in Napa. She helped us with everything from venue scouting, to vendor selection/management, to day of coordination. From our welcome party at Peju, to our Sunday brunch, Catherine was there every step of the way to ensure the weekend went smoothly. Her patience & persistence were critical in helping us navigate the uncertainty of getting married at a new venue. She was on top of everything, extremely responsive, and willing to work through any questions/concerns we had. She was great at planning around our busy work schedules, reminding us of upcoming deadlines and streamlining communication through her strong relationships with vendors. Her attention to detail ensured nothing was missed. We were so thrilled with how everything turned out, and received many compliments from our guests. We couldn't have pulled it off without Catherine & team!”
"It was honestly the best investment in our wedding and I was able to just trust it would all work out and actually relax! In our meetings leading up to the big day, it was like talking to a friend (a very organized one). I am pretty Type A myself and with our destination wedding I wasn't able to see everything put together before our wedding day. Catherine saw my vision and pulled it off flawlessly! I couldn't imagine the process and day without her!”
"I couldn't have gone through the months leading up to the wedding without her! She was so responsive, always able to hop on a call or meet in person, and handled everything! She was AMAZING and our Four Seasons wedding was better than we could have ever imagined or dreamed of! The wedding went on without one issue, and the Four Seasons said it was the nicest wedding they have ever had there. Do yourself a favor and hire Catherine and her team! I wish we could do it all over again just so I could continue to work with her! We love you Catherine, and can't wait to hire you for future events!!"
From the moment we first spoke, I knew that her and I would hit it off and she was exactly who I needed as my right hand through the planning process. Her professionalism is top notch. She was always punctual to all meetings (virtual and in person at the venue), over-communicative, very clear and organized. Catherine made sure a detail was never missed and our meetings always seemed to fly by. She always made herself available by email, phone, text, and I felt fully supported going into our big weekend. Not to mention, she is a joy to work with! I could not recommend Catherine and her team enough. If I did it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing about our planning process together. So grateful!!!
