wedding weekend

a la carte 



Whether it is fashion, interiors or events, I have always had a passion for design and styling. After studying at the Fashion Institute in New York, I moved back to California and began my career as a wedding planner.


Over the past several years I have planned, designed and coordinated hundreds of weddings, corporate and social events. I believe your event should be stress free and something to celebrate, and I will be there every step of the way to ensure a beautifully designed and well executed event. 


"We just had to show up and the whole place was setup exactly how we had envisioned it."

"Katie Hillenga was our wedding coordinator... She is a total rockstar. I can’t even imagine how we would have done it without her. She was professional, polite, and unbelievably helpful with every little thing we needed." -D + K

"Katie H. was so great to work with. I was very specific on my vision and what I wanted for the day, and my expectations were beyond met." L + J

"Katie Hillenga was our month of coordinator and she was a rock star!

I'd highly recommend to anyone in need of the best wedding coordinator

                            any bride could ask for." - M + D

"The day flowed very seamlessly because Katie was very organized

and easy to work with.  My wife and I were able to fully enjoy our

                                        wedding day." -P

"Katie did an unbelievable job for us coordinating everything and providing creative input. It's pretty tough trying to figure out what vendors are really legit, but she was able to give us some honest recommendations on who to use and who to avoid. She worked with them all leading up to the event which took a ton of work off of our plate. She's incredibly organized and took care of every little detail on the day of. We just had to show up and the whole place was setup exactly how we had envisioned it." - M + S
