“It’s hard for me to imagine a better wedding planner than Kathleen. You should just go ahead and hire her. She made everything run smoothly so we could focus on enjoying our wedding instead of dealing with the things that would have gone wrong without her.  We hired Kathleen for a “month of” package, plus additional consultations throughout the entire planning process. While I planned the wedding myself, any time I had questions or was stressed out, Kathleen was always just a phone call or email away. I often have trouble making decisions, and she always offered sound advice and insight that put me at ease.  Of course, weddings are expensive and there are lots of things you can spend your money on. But having been through the process, I can say that the money I was most glad I spent was on vendors that reduced my stress level both during the planning process and on the day of the wedding itself. To that end, Kathleen was probably the *best* investment we made. She is incredibly organized, calm, helpful, and on top of everything.  During the planning phase, she made great recommendations of vendors (everyone she recommended was fantastic and not super expensive). In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she was in contact with all the vendors to make sure everything was on track and everyone knew what they were supposed to be doing. She worried about all the little details so that we didn’t have to.  Her assistant, Danielle, was also fantastic and made sure the ceremony went smoothly while Kathleen was setting everything up at the reception venue. They are a great team and complement each other well. They both stayed to the end of the night and made sure everything was packed up before leaving.  It is worth noting that nothing went wrong at our wedding (at least not that we knew about!), and I’m sure this is because Kathleen thought of the many things that could go wrong and prevented them from happening.  We are so glad we hired Kathleen!”   Catherine V.

“Using Wolf’s Weddings for day-of coordination on my wedding day was one of the best decisions I made! Kathleen was very prompt and helpful when I first contacted her, and assigned Danielle as my day-of coordinator. Danielle did a fantastic job — I can’t say enough good things! She was very professional and organized but also really friendly and I felt like she truly cared about me and my husband and helping us have a fantastic wedding.  She went above and beyond coordinating with all my vendors both before the event and the day of to make sure everything was correct, and handled my decor set-up and clean-up perfectly!  Everything looked beautiful and I didn’t have to worry about anything on the wedding day; she took care of everything.  I would definitely recommend working with Wolf’s Weddings!”     Laura M.

“Kathleen was an essential person in helping us put together such a beautiful and perfect day! She was an integral part of the planning, preparation, and logistics of all the parts leading up to and the day of the wedding. We would not have been able to do it without her. It was a fantastic day! The compliments we received from our guests about her management and coordination of the day were exemplary and very well deserved. Thank you again!”    Allison W

“If you want the job done, you can count on Kathleen!  Two weeks prior to our wedding, she took over completely and was easily accessible. She was very attentive to our wedding timeline and made sure every detail was covered. There were things we didn’t think about that she pointed out and it helped our wedding run smoothly. She contacted every vendor multiple times to make sure everything would happen accordingly.  On the day of the wedding, our family was late bringing over our centerpieces and wedding decorations. I (the bride) was almost in tears. However, the second I arrived at the venue, with a smile, her exact words were, “you hired me for a reason.” I immediately calmed down and was able to enjoy taking our wedding pictures. When our family arrived, she took charge and everything we wanted, she made happen! During the wedding reception, she worked so well with all the vendors and I’m positive she’s a big reason why our wedding program ran smoothly.  She can definitely handle any problems. I would recommend Kathleen’s services to everyone!”   Jamie A

“Kathleen is amazing.  I live in Seattle but got married in MD, planning a long distance wedding.  Less than 3 months before the wedding, I started feeling very overwhelmed and stressed.  I was working with a lot of vendors and had quite a few DIY projects which meant a lot of coordination and help on the day of the wedding. I thought my friends and family could help but when I laid it all out, there was a lot to do. And I didn’t want that. I didn’t want to have to track people down for photos, check to make sure everything was out and vendors had arrived. Most importantly, I didn’t want to know if something went wrong, I just wanted it handled. I knew if had a friend helping me, they would bring the issue to me and I didn’t want to deal with it.  I started to consider having a day-of-coordinator and my friend recommended Kathleen.  She was very responsive and after a call, I decided to go ahead with a day-of-coordinator and Kathleen.  In the weeks leading into the wedding, Kathleen handled all of the vendor coordination.  She put together the timeline and asked really good questions.  She was thorough and calm.  I kept e-mailing her asking her if there was something I was missing because it all felt too easy.  But that’s exactly what she did…she made it easy.  Kathleen and Danielle made the wedding day perfect.  They kept everything running smoothly and gently to make sure we kept close to the timeline.  When I needed something, all I had to do is turn around and one of them was there.  Bottom line: Hiring Kathleen was one of the best things I did.  My mother was against the idea but after the wedding she agreed that it was the best thing and she apologized for giving me a hard time about it.  Would the wedding have happened without Kathleen?  Yes but there would have been stressful moments, nights without sleep, and probably panic attacks.  Kathleen was worth every single penny and more.  She made my wedding perfect.”     Kim G.

“I was so glad I had Wolf’s Weddings to help me on my wedding day! Kathleen was, by far, the most invaluable vendor on my wedding day. I almost didn’t hire her because I thought I had day-of help from my caterer, but thank goodness I did! Nothing could replace the work that Kathleen did and I’m SO glad I decided to use her! Before the wedding, she answered any questions I had, went over pros & cons of every decision I wasn’t sure of (always bringing in her prior experiences), but never made me feel like I had to make a certain decision or tried to sway me in any way. She really made sure the day was mine and was personalized for me. She also confirmed the wedding date with all of the vendors, coordinated all of the vendors on the day of, and managed their roles when some of them started butting heads! Having her at my rehearsal to decide on last minute details and make suggestions was also incredibly helpful as well. Having one person as my “voice” made my wedding day go much smoother than it would have without her. Whenever a vendor came up to me to ask a question, I could direct them to Kathleen because I knew she’d speak for me. I loved not being interrupted about every little detail so I could focus on having fun. She was the one vendor that I felt from start to finish that she was truly there because she enjoys her job and it was her goal to make my day special, unique, and the best day possible for ME and my husband!”    Kim K.

“I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Wolf’s Weddings! We hired them for day-of coordination, but got *so* much more than that, considering they were able to put on a perfect wedding with no power. In the middle of a heatwave.  When I first contacted Wolf’s Weddings, Kathleen was super responsive, and as I shared my ideas she was able to understand what I was going for and ask appropriate questions or make suggestions. I appreciated her following up with the vendors we’d selected prior to hiring her–one less thing to worry about! About a month before the wedding, we did a walk-through of the reception site and the schedule, and we were amazed not only with Kathleen’s organization, but also her attention to detail; she brought up many things we hadn’t thought of, and when we couldn’t decide, she gave us pros/cons to help us make educated decisions. The DC area was hit by a giant storm the night before (the wedding), leaving both the church and reception site without power. I talked to Kathleen once that day, early in the morning–after that she took incredible initiative (and a ton of stress off of me!) in coordinating our vendors and families so that everything went perfectly…minus the fact that there was no AC! Her team was even able to locate and rent a generator (hard to find during widespread outages!) so the DJ and lights had power. The performance of the Wolf’s Weddings team during the setup was glowing. Kathleen was in control, but respectful of everyone’s super stressed state and was able to negotiate as needed. During the reception, Kathleen was great about subtly keeping us on schedule, and the fact that she was able to stay late and make sure we took everything with us was a lifesaver!  While I don’t wish a power outage during a heatwave on any bride/groom/coordinator, I believe the situation clearly demonstrated that Wolf’s Weddings is amazing. If Kathleen can put on the perfect wedding with no power, she can do anything!”   Mariana Z.

“One of the BEST decisions we ever made was hiring Wolfs Weddings by Kathleen Wolf to be our day-of coordinator.  My husband is Persian-American and I am Korean-American so we wanted to merge our cultures together and have, not one but THREE ceremonies that day. We found Kathleen (Wolfs Weddings) and after our first conversation over the phone I knew that I wanted her to help us with our special day. She is sweet, attentive, and VERY organized.  She called all our vendors ahead of time and planned out the right schedule so that everything was perfect on the day of the wedding. She explained every detail of the wedding and gave us suggestions on how to make our day even better. She was never pushy about her ideas and always allowed me to make the final decision. If she didn’t think it was such a great idea or had a suggestion, she let me know in the most gentle fashion and I always ended up agreeing with her because she definitely knows what shes doing! She not only took care of all the logistics on the day but she even decorated the reception area and ceremony area just the way I asked her to! And it was more beautiful than what I imagined. Her attention to detail was a perfect fit for my ‘control-freak’ personality. Everything went very smoothly and was executed perfectly. I really didn’t have to think or worry about anything all day and that is thanks to Kathleen and her team. She went above and beyond to make our day perfect. She was the first one to be at the venue and the last one to leave. She double checked all the areas at the end of the night and made sure we had everything from the venue.  I highly recommend Kathleen and I am sure that she will also make your wedding day perfect!”    Esther D.

“Kathleen was a wonderful wedding planner. We could not have asked for more! She was always there to help us along the way and would send reminder e-mails for tasks that needed to be completed. She would always offer her assistance without hesitation! She would promptly get back to our e-mails and inform us if she would be out of town or unable to check her e-mail in advance. On the wedding day, she was very organized and would always check in with the groom and myself periodically. The ceremony ran smoothly as well as the reception and she took over task if they arose. We did not have to stress or worry about anything the entire day. She did a wonderful job at setting up and helping clean up before and after the wedding. She dealt with all the vendors and it was so helpful to have a “middle man”! We could not have asked for more on our special day and would recommend her to anyone!”  Rachel K.
