LAURA DETWILER

Owner, & Exec Planner

Katie was born in New York and lived there for many years. She moved to Florida 17 years ago and does not miss the snow. She has been in the industry for over 15 years as well.
 
Her favorite pop of color for any wedding or event is Green. She absolutely loves the beginning stages where all the creative brainstorming happens.

When she is not planning a wedding or event, you can see her playing with her kids or cooking.

My favorite part of planning is the actual day! I love seeing all the pieces come together and the whole planning process come to life. I truly have a passion for designing and creating unforgettable experiences for my clients from the beginning to the end!

I have been in the hospitality industry planning fabulous weddings and events for over 15 years, including 10 years in Downtown Chicago. My husband and I moved to sunny Florida from Columbus, Ohio 7 years ago and now have two little girls.

I have been fortunate to be able to coordinate weddings and events at beautiful venues such as  The Ringling Museum of Art, The Ritz Carlton Sarasota, Selby Gardens, Powel Crosley, The Westin Sarasota, Art Ovation Hotel as well as many other hotels and venues in the Sarasota/Tampa Bay area.

I will be by your side throughout your event till the end, making sure that everything ​is going perfectly. I am creative and organized and will make sure every last detail is taken care of, so the only thing you have to think about is enjoying yourself and making memories!

Nothing is more important to me than making your day exactly what you want it to be. I would love to work with you to make your wedding or event the perfect memory!
