What others say about us


Our wedding was concisely organized, flawlessly timed, and seamlessly planned! In fact, I marvel that in the whirlwind of the wedding day, in any rare moment when I began to think “ I need this or I wish I had that” Katy was next to me with the item in hand. From an out-of-state client, I feel so lucky to have found Katy and to have placed our wedding in her very capable hands.

“Katy and her team catered the wedding for my niece at our home – we had about 50 guests, with the ceremony in our backyard and the dinner inside.  Katy was positive, easy to work with, and had a great eye for detail.  She managed all of the arrangements – food, rentals, flowers.  The food was great, the flowers were beautiful, and the event was memorable.  We had so many complements for all aspects of the gathering – we will only work with Katy for the next wedding!”

We never could have pulled off our dream wedding with out her! from the wedding planning to the event execution, which was a three day wedding, they did not miss a beat. We can’t wait to plan our next event with VanBee & Co!

” As a small non-profit organization that relies on fundraising events as a
large source of its income, it is crucial to work with outside
organizations. A business that can deliver on our needs to help with the event
planning and execution of such an important event makes a world of
difference. A good fundraiser has many moving parts and it is imperative not
to stretch your own staff too thin. We find our patrons are happier when we
are more relaxed at our events and are able to devote the time needed to
their comments and questions. In the end, it is always worth the cost to the
organization to hire event planners. We highly recommend VanBee & Co.”
