About Us

Oh hey! Thanks for stopping by. We're Katie and Joe, or Team Big Day Celebrations. We can't wait to hear from you, but I'm sure you'd love to get to know us a little bit first, so here you go!

K + J

Katie

Sr. Certified Wedding Planner & Owner of Big Day Celebrations

Big Day Celebrations is my baby and I'm so blessed to have found my true passion. I've been doing what I love for about 10 years now and have well over 400 weddings under my belt! (Yes, I know I look young, but it's true). I've seen it all and know all of the ins and outs, the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to wedding planning and coordination.

My goal in life is for you to have fun planning your big day. It's one of the biggest events in your life so you should be able to enjoy it, right? Not only should the planning process be fun, but the wedding should be so wonderful that it takes an army to get you down from cloud nine afterwards! I want to see you floating away saying "this was the best day ever" when all is said and done. 

Also, I do need to introduce a certain someone. My wonderful hubby Joe. This guy below is one of the most supportive people on the planet!

 

If it wasn't for him, there is no way I would be doing what I do today. And guess what? He is my right hand man on wedding day. I love the fact that I get to say we are a "husband and wife team." He is my wedding ninja and it's so awesome that we get to work together!

How does that sound? Are you ready? Let's do this thing!

Favorite Animal: Kittens, Cats, Lions, Tigers...anything in the feline family!

Joe

Honeymoon Hacker & Wedding Ninja

"Do you even work?" Yes, yes I do. When I'm not inspecting hotels and multifamily residential units, I'm helping my boss Katie crush it on wedding day. If you blink you'll miss me, but I can be found in the background setting up guest book tables, putting out favors, alphabetizing 

escort cards or fixing the cake. I've also been spotted making groomsmen beer runs or sprinting to Publix for extra floral.

What sets us apart from the other husband and wife teams is our travel skills. We've been travel hacking for about five years and have visited New Zealand, Hong Kong, Guatemala, Austria, France, and Japan to name a few of our favorites. The greatest part about this is that we paid almost nothing to fly to all of these amazing destinations. Instead of keeping our travel secrets to ourselves, we happily help our couples plan epic honeymoons. With a little work and my direction, you could be on your way to Italy, Belize, or even Thailand; Perhaps in business class, ya. ;)

It gives me great pleasure being a small part of Big Day Celebrations' wedding day magic but more importantly, watching my incredible wife displaying pure enthusiasm while doing what she was truly designed for.

Need help planning that epic honeymoon? Let me help you.
