Meet Kat

My high school sweetheart Matt and I live in a tiny 2500 population town in an old, historic home … and we love every bit of it! We have a 5 year old Brittany Spaniel named Knox who we love to take hiking in the mountains near our home! I’m an iced chai drinker, obsessed with the color pink & I can quote way too many lines from Friends! I love a Friday night at home enjoying Matt's amazing home-cooked meals! 






and have been blessed to work with some truly incredible couples! Wedding planning combines my love for organization, strategy & color-coding; floral design allows me to dig even deeper with you into the heart of your design aesthetic, so we cultivate a wedding day that never overpowers your love, only strives to accent it. 

I'm Kat - planner, creative, and pink lover!

I began this dream of mine 4 years ago,

Home is where all of my family, amazing girlfriends and boyfriend, Huck, of 4 years are. I spend most of my time fantasizing how I will plan my friends, who I refer to as sisters, weddings, eating way too much dessert at my favorite little place, and relaxing on a couch with my family, Huck or both! I know almost every plot line of any show on ABC or NBC and always try to get my mom obsessed with the same ones, recently it’s Chicago trilogy. 





I couldn’t decide if I wanted to design pretty cakes, sparkly wedding gowns or bouquets so I decided I wanted to be a part of all 3 and more in some way and Kat is making that dream become a reality!

I'm Hannah - love enthusiast, creative, and obsessed with all pretty things!

I've wanted to be a planner since my Senior year of High School.

Favorite WAY TO SPEND A SATURDAY

Kat

Hannah

When I’m not at a wedding... I’m a homebody at heart so a day on the couch with Matt & Knox sounds like a dream to this busy girl!

When I’m not at a wedding...With my family and/or my boyfriend and his family. I’m a family girl and feel most comfortable with mine and Huck’s family watching whatever sports game or golf tournament or just spending time in the kitchen or out and about with them!

The reception reveal! I love spending a few quiet moments walking the bride & groom through their space!!

When the bride walks down the aisle towards her future husband! I love seeing the groom and guests reaction as she floats down the center!

what we do

WHY WE DO

And we believe you can find him at the age of 17, 28 or 65. Dear Sweetheart Events was born out of Kat’s desire to cultivate a wedding day that accents your love story, and never overpowers it. We want to infuse playful touches with heartfelt moments to create one classically beautiful wedding day. 


Our team loves meeting a bride for the first time and walking through the process with her. We love holding her hand before she walks down the aisle, and fixes her bustle before the party begins. Kat always get a bit teary eyed when she says ‘I Do’ and loves a 6-month-after-the-wedding ‘how are you doing?!’ text message conversation.


See, DSE is more than just contracts and clients.






While wedding day is not necessarily the ‘best day of your life’, we believe it’s the first day of the rest of your life. Once you slip on your stunning gown and become his MRS, you’re vowing to love, honor and cherish every part of him (and he you), for the rest of your days. The adventure of marriage is yours for the taking, and we’d love to be apart of it. 

We believe in sweethearts, in a love that lasts a lifetime.

Our relationship with our brides is at the very core of why we do what we do!
