A few of our Wonderstruck couples share their experiences working with us:



“Wonderstruck made our wedding SO AMAZING! Katie had incredible vision & is so creative- I now believe she really can make your dream wedding happen, because she did for us. We wanted a non-traditional experience, Thai food, carnival feel, lots of games, food trucks, and more all that worked for kids and adults. We wanted a mix of fun bright colors, bohemian feel -a winter boho fun fest. It looked incredible! She was so knowledgeable and her experience at making events work was clear from the start… I cannot believe how spectacular the space looked. It was completely transformed and gorgeous. Some family members had seen the space before the wedding and then at the wedding and their jaws dropped seeing how different and beautiful the space looked. It was elegant, fun, warm and felt so happy on a rainy Seattle night!” – Christine L., Seattle 12/4/2016 more on Wedding Wire

“My husband and I had a fantastic experience working with Katie and the Wonderstruck team on planning, flowers, and day-of coordination for our wedding. She was great at listening to our ideas, helpful with her own advice and suggestions, and responsive to our questions throughout the process. On the day of the wedding, she brought our wedding vision to life and took care of coordinating with our venue and vendors, as well as set up and break down. Her experience and attention to detail let us enjoy our wedding day and without worrying about whether things would go according to plan. We can’t recommend Wonderstruck enough!” – Alex B., Seattle 8/20/2016 more on Wedding Wire

Wonderstruck is great! We planned our wedding from the east coast and WS was a great investment. Katie is a talented designer. She has her own collection of decor items that made it easy and unique. In the year that I worked with her, I didn’t feel like my wedding looked templated from another. She is also a florist and even my photographer was shocked that the flowers were done by her. I wish we had more budget for decor because I think Katie could have done even more amazing decor, but she made wonders with our design budget. Also, I think having so many services from her, we were able to stretch the dollar.” – Lily W., Washington, DC – 1/3/2017 more on Yelp 

Katie was the first wedding planner I met. Upon our first encounter, both my family and I absolutely loved her! Katie is so down to earth and has such a creative mind! She takes your ideas, organizes them and makes them 10x better! Hands down, hiring Wonderstruck was the BEST decision I made during the planning process! They kept me so sane… I never really felt the stress of wedding planning because they literally handled everything! All we had to do was make decisions! I would recommend Katie and Mallory to any bride planning on getting married! They are not only wedding planning masters, but they are also amazing people! Now, go! Go hire them right now! You won’t regret it!!!!” – Alyssa D., Renton – 11/2/2016 more on Yelp 


“Wonderstruck is thlovenotequote5e best event design in Seattle Area, we had them for our dream wedding in June, 2016. The Wonderstruck team were awesome and very easy to work with. We had a great experience with them!” – Qiana W., Seattle 6/16/2016 more on Wedding Wire

“Planning a wedding when both my husband and I work full time was difficult, and without Wonderstruck’s help I’m not sure we would have been able to pull it off. The partial package allowed us to do a lot of the work and find vendors ourselves, but Wonderstruck’s guidance helped us focus our limited time to be much more productive… Neither my husband nor I really have an eye for design, and we were a bit out of our depth trying to come up with wedding décor. Katie was great to work with, and our wedding was so beautiful it looked like it could have been featured in a magazine. Our wedding ended up being forced inside due to rain, and if we had been on our own that could have been a huge problem since most of our planning was to have everything outside. Katie modified our design plans to fit on the covered porch, and put together a ceremony so gorgeous I was actually happy that the location was moved because it felt so cozy and intimate.” – Erica, Seattle 9/17/2016  more on Wedding Wire

Katie from Wonderstruck was amazing! When we met with Katie, she was already prepared. She had printed off photos of our ceremony and reception site, ideas for decor, examples of fabric, and listened to what we had to say. She came out to tour the venue so that she could continue to gather ideas for the day of. When we met with her to do a final discussion about flowers and decor, she was once again prepared in every way! Katie and her team created a winter wonderland with her decor at the venue! She handled all of our flowers, our decor, centerpieces, linens, etc. She took care of everything which allowed me and my family to enjoy the wedding day. Katie was easily accessible by email during the entire wedding planning process and everything turned out beautifully. I can’t recommend her and her team enough. They will truly leave you Wonderstruck! – Kara, Seattle 12/20/2015  more on Wedding Wire

“Katie was wonderful! We hired her mostly for day-of coordination, but we really got more than that.. We had regular meetings where she kept us on a healthy timeline and reminded us of the many (many MANY) things we would’ve forgotten and let fall through the cracks… I was practically bored on my wedding day–such a lovely feeling. Just sitting around and gabbing with my bridesmaids, not a single concern about how venue setup was going or if we’d be ready to go on time.” – Stephanie L. Bellevue 12/15/2015   more on Yelp

“Katie at Wonderstruck was absolutely AMAZING!! She took our vision for our wedding and absolutely KILLED it!
She took the entire event to the next level and my jaw literally dropped when I walked into the venue. She turned my dreams into a reality and made our a wedding day everything that we hoped for and even more. Katie’s attention to detail and her ability to see the potential in a space is awe inspiring. She helped me think outside the box, made sure every little detail was covered, and ensured that the entire day – actually, the entire week leading up to the day – went off without a hitch… If I had to do it all over again, hands down I’d choose Katie every single time. THANK YOU KATIE!!” – Nicole H., Lynnwood 1/2/2016 more on Yelp

“Katie was absolutely fantastic to work with! She really took the time to know us and helped us design the perfect wedding.
She has several different options about how involved she will be in the design process, which was great because we also had some projects we wanted to do ourselves. For the day of, I never had to think about a single thing. She was incredibly organized and took care of absolutely everything! I couldn’t recommend Katie more!” –Jillian K., Seattle 11/3/2015 more on The Knot

lovenotequote1“I hired Wonderstruck Event Design to plan my wedding. It was hands-down, amazing. [They] were meticulously organized, had a beautiful eye for details, and very easy to work with. My wedding was on Vashon Island and it is no easy feat to help plan the transportation and coordinate everything on an island. I had requested to move the ceremony up an hour and they were so positive and accommodating with this shift in the schedule. I truly believe that my wedding day would not have turned out this amazing if they were not a part of it. Highly recommend!!” -Charisse A., Seattle 9/6/2015 more on Wedding Wire 

“Hiring Katie was the best single best wedding decision I made. (Wait no. The groom was the best. But Katie was a clear second.) … It was the best feeling to have everything handled and to be able to say, whenever anyone asked me anything, “I don’t know! Just ask Katie!”  Between the time we hired her for day-of coordination and the wedding, she

planned our timeline for the rehearsal and wedding day, found our DJ and my makeup artist, made checklists so we knew what we needed to work on, had multiple meetings with us and our venue to plan every detail, made our floor plan, coordinated our rentals, made beautiful signs, and answered all our questions. She hosted a flower arranging lesson for the bridal party, made all the bouquets and corsages (which were amazing), decorated the entire venue, coordinated the vendors, and made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time without ever being pushy. I can’t imagine how we would have pulled off our wedding without Katie’s help.” – Kayla R., Seattle 11/13/2014  more on Yelp 

“Hiring Katie Aweida at Wonderstruck Event Design to do the day-of coordination for my wedding was the best decision I’ve ever made. My mom and our venue manager tried to convince me that I didn’t need a wedding coordinator, but thankfully I didn’t listen to them! I was so lost and stressed out about all of the details, but after meeting with Katie, I felt like I had some direction and that things were going to come together just fine in time for the wedding. Katie is incredibly warm and patient. She asked thoughtful questions and listened carefully to our responses, and she made great suggestions without ever being pushy… I allovenotequote4ways felt like Katie had everything under control and that there was nothing for me to stress about. On the day of my wedding… Katie…made the venue look gorgeous. I’m sure she was doing a million things behind the scenes, but from our perspective, we didn’t have to worry about anything! She made sure my husband and I always had a drink in hand and had something to eat. I felt like I was truly able to enjoy myself! I wouldn’t have been able to make this happen without Katie’s help. Her creativity, thoughtfulness, and leadership make her an amazing wedding planner. Katie and her Wonderstruck team are the best!!” –Sonja H., Seattle 7/24/2015 more on Wedding Wire 

“The second I met Katie, I knew she was going to make my dream wedding a reality! She has all the qualities that a bride looks for in a wedding coordinator! She’s sweet, easy going, organized and totally on top of every detail! In addition to all of her awesome cameobunlqualities, she’s super creative and talented! She had so many great ideas and helped me with DIY projects! Not to mention, she has an awesome studio full of all things vintage decor! If you are able to have Katie has your wedding planner, you will be very well taken care of! Thanks Katie for making my wedding fun and stress free!” – MC, Seattle 7/12/2014 more on Wedding Wire 

“Wonderstruck did the planning and design for our wedding in Skagit County in July 2015, and we could not have been happier! My wife and I spent a lot of time researching to find the right planner in the Seattle area to match our needs and sensibilities, and Katie turned out to be the perfect fit. After meeting with several potential options, we loved her calm personality and how she uniquely tailors each wedding by the couple. Other planners we met with scared us with a top-down cookie-cutter plan – not Katie! As months went on, we knew we made the right choice. It cannot be said enough how great lovenotequote2Katie is if you are looking for a uniquely designed wedding. She’s not just a planner – she’s also someone with a terrific creative eye to give your wedding the look you want. We came to her with a basic idea for a Pacific Northwest beach theme, and she took this and ran with it. We were blown away by the amount of effort she put into the details to make it look just right. On the day of the wedding, Katie continued to be a calming force and made sure that all the trains were running on time as all the vendors arrived to set up. Our wedding was at a venue with no vendors included, and Katie and her team did a great job coordinating everyone behind the scenes to make sure everything ran smoothly. We highly recommend hiring Katie to be your planner and designer if you’re looking for someone who can match your unique needs and make a wedding exactly the way you want it. We are very satisfied with Wonderstruck!” – Erik H., Seattle 7/4/2014 more on Wedding Wire

cameoponyl“Katie is one of the most thoughtful and organized human beings I’ve had the pleasure of working with!
She and her team took our ideas and brought them to life in a way that far exceeded our expectations. To say that we were blown away by the quality, creativity and attention to detail was an understatement! …I loved getting to meet with her in their studio to pick out design elements for our wedding. We were able to shop right in her studio and pull together the design elements for our wedding – so much fun!…She pulled together the most stunning floral arrangements that I had ever seen – literally gave me goosebumps! Katie and her team coordinated the day-of our wedding seamlessly, which allowed us to fully be present on our wedding day and ensure that our family and friends could also fully enjoy the day with us. I would bring Katie and her team on again in a heartbeat!” – Katie R., Vancouver, BC  8/4/2015 more on Yelp 

“Katie is the best kind of creative person; she’s an artist and visionary who actually gets things DONE. She is incredibly organized, personable, patient, and trustworthy.  Her corporate background gives her the tools she needs to be an affective team member and leader on any project.  I have absolutely enjoyed working with her on photo-shoots and look forward to working with her in the future! If you are looking for an imaginative designer for your wedding or event –whether it’s classic, quirky, or somewhere in-between– Katie is a wonderful choice. She will make your event gorgeous, and will make you glad to have hired her. :)” – Krista W., Seattle 10/31/2013 more on Yelp
