Rouge Events & Design are Amazing!! They were a complete Godsend through the entire wedding planning process and the entire day of my wedding. I honestly do not know what I would have done with their assistance! There are a million details in planning a wedding and so many things that didn't even cross my mind so I am forever grateful to Rouge Events. They took care of the flowers, center pieces, Church & reception decor, confirming details with all the vendors, timeline of events, making sure everything went as planned on our special day and tipping our vendors at the end of their services. All of our vendors, family, and wedding party all knew what to expect and everyone was on the same page which made the day run smoothly. My wedding and reception could not have gone any better and I owe that to Rouge Events & Design~ I cannot speak Highly enough about them!! We Love Rouge Events & Design :)

There aren't enough words to say how great Rouge Events and Designs truly is! Katie, listens to every word you say and turns them into everything you've ever wanted for your wedding! She has fantastic ideas and can actually make them happen. Our wedding day and the days leading up to it were so much easier with her help, we couldn't have done it without her! Most of all our flowers were the most gorgeous things ever! If you are looking for a wedding planner who absolutely loves her job, who actually gets to live her passion, then you need Rouge Events and Designs, with Katie! You will love everything and not have to worry about anything! You must have her do your flowers too!! You won't find anyone more caring and enthusiastic about your wedding, well except for yourself, than Rouge! Thank you Katie for making our special day even more special, you are amazing!

As an event planner myself, I knew how crucial it was to have someone take the reigns on the big day so my husband, our family and I could fully enjoy the wedding, but planning long distance from L.A. was new for me. I’m so thankful I found Katie and the Rouge Events team! What started out as a day-of coordinator package turned into a month-of coordinator package, which turned into Rouge Events even doing our flowers and executing our full event design without breaking the budget! They were prompt, professional, calm and creative. We worked mostly with Katie until the week before and she was such a breath of fresh air. My husband and I had a difficult venue contact, but Katie smoothed out any issues with a smile like a pro and always had suggestions to make things easier for us; even ordering and collecting our linens, printing our programs and timelines and picking up our bouquets on the big day! Adding the “borrow closet” to our package was well worth it. We saved on buying or renting everything individually and they made my vision come together beautifully! Mary was on-site on the wedding day and she was such a delight! She kept us on pace and was always right there when we needed her; having my bouquet ready for the toss and even grabbing drinks for us when our server was a bit slow! I don’t know what we would have done without Katie, Mary and the team…we are so thankful. My bridesmaids and guests kept saying how relaxing and smooth the day went and I know it wouldn’t have been that way without Rouge Events.

Katie was our wedding planner from Rouge Events and she did an excellent job!! We started working with her about 16 months before our wedding for the full service coordinating. This is definitely the way to go because you get access to the borrow closest. Our center pieces were made entirely from the borrow closet and were absolutely beautiful. Katie cut all of the table numbers for us with her cricket and they were so wonderful. She also purchased some table cloths that we were going to rent which saved us money as well. When I wasn't wild about the backdrops that were provided by our church, Katie offered to create a draped backdrop for the ceremony that also doubled as our photo booth backdrop at the reception. I loved it! We wanted to keep our wedding fairly affordable and Katie was great with our budget!! I highly recommend getting your flowers done by Katie and Anna as well because they were absolutely stunning. They are much more affordable than a traditional florist. We had an issue with our chair vendor wanting us to pay a crazy amount to pick up the chairs after hours, but Katie offered to rent a uhaul and returned the chairs for us!! Also, our family cooked all of the food for our wedding and that meant that Katie had to take on some of the things that a caterer would typically do while our family was at our ceremony. She got all of the food on the buffet and it went great!! I really did not have to worry about a single thing on my wedding day. Katie and her team did all of the decorating, got everyone in the right place at the right time, did all the coordinating with vendors. I couldn't have imagined the day going any better. I highly recommend Rouge Events and specifically the full service coordinating.

Right after my husband and I became engaged, I knew I needed wedding planners. We live 2000 miles from St. Louis and with full time jobs and grad school we needed some boots on the ground. Katie and Anna were a great find! We went with their full service option. They helped us figure out our vision, find our venues, and kept us on schedule with frequent email timeline updates. As we got closer to the day, we were still without a florist and Rouge came to the rescue again. Katie and Anna designed our flowers for the bouquets, boutonnières, corsages, and the reception centerpieces. They turned out beautifully! Rouge completely designed our reception using flowers and their 'borrow closet'. Everything looked wonderful, and they really executed a vision we weren't sure how to explain. Not only did Rouge do a fantastic job planning, both Katie and Anna were all smiles during the reception and kept us on schedule to get everything we wanted done before the dance party. Our wedding day was perfect. Rouge took care of all the coordination so my husband and I (and our parents) were free to enjoy the day with our families and friends. It meant the world to us to have everyone focused on the celebration!

Katie and Anna are absolutely amazing! Hiring Rouge Events and Design was one of the best decisions we made for our May 3rd wedding. Not only are they both extremely professional and on top of everything, they are also so sweet and personable (which honestly isn't a common thing with some wedding vendors). We hired them for full service wedding planning (their "borrow closet" is amazing BTW!) and couldn't be more happy with their services. We had an idea of what we wanted for the ceremony & reception theme/decor but didn't know how to put it all together on our own. Rouge solved that problem! I was blown away at the wedding with how everything came together - plus we had a few surprises they came up with that made it even better! We trusted them 100% to work their magic and didn't have to lift a finger on the wedding day. If you are looking for amazing wedding planners - these two ladies are it! We received SO many compliments on everything and I could only say it was our amazing wedding planners =) consultations and more details!
