“We are from out of state and our redwoods wedding couldn't have been more perfect. From our first connection, Katherine made us feel as if we were the only people in the world. Her calming approach provided us with guidance as she lead us through our wedding planning, complete with venue, vows, flowers, photography, and celebration location. Every aspect was so well done and personal; there isn't a rating high enough to sing my praises for her. I don't have words big enough, or rich enough to thank you for all you provided.” ~ Laura Elwood
