WEDDING CELEBRATION

“Kathryn and Patti were an absolute blessing throughout the planning process and beyond. They helped me bring my dreams to life and made sure everything happened seamlessly on the wedding day. As a bride, I never wanted to be stressed. I wanted to enjoy the process and just enjoy the special time in my life. And Kathryn and Patti were the absolute perfect fit for my husband and I, as well as our families. Kathryn and Patti not only helped us during the process, but they have still been right there when we needed them after we returned from our honeymoon. They have helped to answer questions about name change, preserving flowers, etc. and have just gone out of their way to make everything perfect for us! Our wedding was an absolute dream come true. We can’t thank them enough for everything they did to make it the most special night of our lives!!”

Haley, bride

“With my daughter living 5 hours away from me, there was no way that I could have helped her plan her wedding without the Mom and Daughter Team of WED Memphis! They were not only professional to a “T”, but I felt many times that Patti was like my daughter’s second Mom and Kathryn was my daughter’s sister she never had. They were organized, communicative, supportive, always positive and you constantly felt their Christian beliefs and their way of treating you and everyone that they dealt with kindness, sincerity and care. They were truly amazing never letting anything or anyone cause my daughter’s plans for her special day to be derailed. We were blessed to have them involved in a very special day!”

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“Love, love, love these two amazing women! They helped make my wedding day absolutely perfect, and they were the perfect fit with my super organized, list-making personality. I was more knowledgeable about some vendors over others, and Kathryn and Patti were so helpful with recommendations for those vendors I didn’t know as much about. {It’s so nice to have people who work with different vendors all the time give you ideas rather than rely solely on anonymous reviews online.} They met with me a few times to go over the floor plan, questions and concerns, timeline, etc. and their perfectly laid out, concise-yet-detailed emails were just what I needed to feel confident and on-top-of things–they were always so quick to respond, too! They were so helpful getting us organized during the rehearsal, and they made everything run so smoothly on the wedding day. They worked well with our other vendors; they were so kind and accommodating to our friends, family, and guests; and they made it so that I honestly didn’t have to think or worry about a single thing {and my parents and my in-laws didn’t have to stress either, knowing that these two were overseeing everything; they put out our personal items, helped pack everything up at the end of the night, and kept everything on track}. I am so happy they were by my side for my wedding, and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and wonderful wedding planners.”

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“I enthusiastically recommend WED Memphis. As my glowing daughter left her wedding, I asked her what she thought of the day. “It was a dream come true,” she happily said — words of music to the ears of a mother and father of the bride. The overseers of that dream were Kathryn Sparks and Patti Ruleman of WED Memphis. If you want skilled professionals who have experience planning weddings of all sizes and who understand the fine lines of vendor contracts AND if you want planners who understand that a wedding is more than just an event AND if want to enjoy your daughter’s wedding day and not be bogged down with detail upon detail, then you want WED Memphis.

Our reception was at a venue different from the church, but I had no worries because Kathryn was at the reception site. Her words to me during the planning process were always: “I’ll take care of that.” And she DID take great care of that. Sometimes I didn’t know what “that” even was, but she took care of it anyway. I am very thankful that Kathryn and Patti were in our wedding corner from Day 1 until the Blessed Day.”

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“I had so much peace the second I booked WED Memphis, because I knew my wedding was in great hands! I had doubts about needing a wedding planner/coordinator but knew after one meeting with Patti and Kathryn that they were exactly what I needed! Kathryn has amazing response time to emails and texts! I feel like no problem is small or insignificant to her and she always has great advice. I know our wedding day will be smooth sailing due to this amazing team!”

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“Kathryn and Patti are FABULOUS! From the start they gave us wonderful vendor recommendations on cake, flowers, venues, food and more! We consulted with them about everything, and they were there to give advice all along the way. I would text or call Kathryn with a question, and she would always get onnack to me in such a timely manner. These two ladies are professional and know what they are doing!

They were so wonderful on the wedding day making sure everything came together just like we all had planned- this really took the stress off of my mom and me, which was so great! They got everything into tip-top-shape from the church to the reception, and it was so lovely to know that someone knew the details just as much as we did so we could simply enjoy the wedding day!

Kathryn also always gave me the greatest advice as we both worked with vendors for the big day- from pricing negotiation to wedding day timeline, Kathryn and Patti knows what works best for the bride and groom and their guests!

They are a true joy to work with, and they are the kind of team that can be right in the thick of it with you but also be working behind the scenes where you don’t even know they are there!

If you are looking for a fun, responsive, creative, well-connected, and easy going wedding planning duo, Kathryn and Patti are for you. They are calm, cool and collected but know their stuff, and that is so wonderful to have during the crazy wedding planning season :)”

Natalie, bride

“Kathryn and Patti of WED Memphis were a dream team to work with during the planning of our daughter’s wedding! From our first meeting until the last guest left the reception, every detail was taken care of in exactly the manor we had planned. They were a wealth of information, very prompt at returning phone calls and emails, and I was able to relax on the day of the wedding knowing they were in charge. They have several packages to choose from to fit any bride’s budget. Thank you to WED Memphis for a job well done!”

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“Our wedding day was perfect and we owe it all to the WED Memphis team! They were extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process especially when it came to recommendations on vendors and venue locations. They are so organized and respond to any questions/concerns extremely quickly. They are both so enthusiastic about event planning and helped this very indecisive bride make decisions about every aspect of our big day! Our wedding day went off without a hitch and we owe that all to Kathryn and Patti. They had the whole day planned out for us and everything went so smoothly! Evan and I really got to enjoy the day instead of worrying about the details! We were so grateful for their help and would recommend them to anyone looking for an event planner!”

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“Kathryn and Patti helped plan my husband and my September 20th wedding in Memphis, TN. We live out of state and knew that we would want someone local to help with the planning–this was one of the best decisions we made! From our very first meeting, Kathryn and Patti were incredibly organized, professional and dedicated to making our dream wedding a reality. They were always available via email or phone and consistently responded promptly to our questions and requests. Nearly all of our vendors were selected based on their recommendations and we were pleased with everyone we selected. Kathryn and Patti helped create a great team of people for us to work with and we wouldn’t have changed a thing about our special day. Kathryn and Patti are well respected within the event planning community and every vendor we worked with raved about how organized and professional they are. Not only did they help arrange every meeting we had with our vendors but on the day of the wedding we didn’t worry about a thing. It was such a blessing to have them both there to handle coordinating all of set-up and manage any issues that popped up. If anything went wrong at the wedding or reception we have no idea because they handled it without us even knowing! Kathryn and Patti are not only great to work with professionally but they were a joy personally as well. We know WED Memphis is going to be a tremendous success and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to create the perfect wedding experience, both during the planning process and the day of.”

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“Kathryn and Patti were the first two we contacted after we secured our venue for our wedding, and it was the best decision we made in the planning process! Kathryn and Patti are so sweet, and they were super quick to respond to my husband and I’s ten thousand emails and phone calls. We were planning our wedding from all the way out in Nevada, and thanks to Kathryn and Patti’s superb insight, advice, and recommendations, they made it so much easier for us. Their vendor recommendations are fantastic and thanks to them, we were able to book one of the best DJ’s in Memphis! They offered great advice when it came to general etiquette, the flow of things, and in dealing with the little issues that arose along the way. During our actual wedding, Patti was on top of taking care of things and ensuring that Mike and I were good and comfortable. She brought us food after the ceremony and even helped get the bustle on my dress put up. All in all, these two are fantastic to work with and I highly recommend booking with WED Memphis, it was a really great decision for us.”

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“Kathryn and Patti are wonderful! They are extremely organized, flexible, understanding, and easy to work with which made planning my wedding an easy task! When I first came to Kathryn and her mom, I of course pulled up all my Pinterest boards and scrolled through thousands of pictures…Kathryn was able to recognize my unique vision for my big day and immediately recommend qualified vendors throughout Memphis and the Mid-South. Whether it was finding the perfect vintage getaway car or planning a last-minute vendor walk through at our venue, Kathryn and her mom are extremely on top of things! Without them, I’m sure there would have been details I would have overlooked or forgotten about by the time my big day rolled around. They literally saved me from losing my mind more than several times and quickly found and held an extra tent + fans just mere days before my wedding due to rain and heat threats. My unique, vintage wedding went off without a hitch and I have the WED Memphis team to thank for that! Multiple people have commented to me how beautiful my wedding was and how smoothly everything ran! Thanks Kathryn and Patti, y’all are the best!”

Mary Aubrey, bride

“Wow! Where do we even begin, it was an absolute pleasure working with WED Memphis {Kathryn and Patti}!! We don’t know what we would have done without them. They helped us pull off the fabulous dream wedding we wanted. WED Memphis is extremely talented and listened to everything we said we wanted. Anything we asked of them they went above and beyond. We are very thankful we had the opportunity to work with Kathryn and Patti, and gain two friends along the way!”

Megan, bride

“WED Memphis {Kathryn and Patti} became more than a business contract with us during our wedding planning. They were always available to answer any questions that arose throughout the entire process. Both became our eyes and ears as the meetings with vendors took place by always relaying our wishes. And I cannot say enough about Kathryn and Patti’s calm and reassuring manner as the weekend festivities unfolded, as there were several bumpy moments when the weather did not cooperate… freezing rain and ice. WED Memphis far exceeded our expectations, and I feel as though we made a friend along the way!!””

WEDDING CELEBRATION

“We hired Kathryn and Patti to be “day of” coordinators at our daughter’s wedding reception, and it was one of the smartest and most important choices we made during the wedding planning process. As mother-of-the-bride, I wanted to be free to visit with guests and truly enjoy the reception without worrying about details or wondering if it was time to cut the cake or throw the bouquet. They took care of absolutely everything to make the reception flow perfectly. During our early meetings and in emails, the WED team helped us plan and made some great suggestions. Later, they met with us at the venue to plan on-site, created a detailed timeline, and contacted all our vendors. On the wedding day, they were at the venue for hours before the reception started to be sure everything was just what we had planned…until after the band and caterer had packed up to leave. Without a doubt, they are the reason the reception was everything we had hoped for! It was a joy to work with them, and I would recommend Kathryn and Patti without hesitation.”

BIBLE SAFARI FOR WOMEN & CHILDREN

“We want to say a big thank you to Patti Ruleman and Kathryn Sparks (WED Memphis) for helping our ministry (Valuing Lives Ministry/South America Mission) host this very special safari adventure, “Wild about Jesus,” for our women’s and children’s ministries in Dois Unidos, Recife, Brasil!! It was a wonderful day of activities and Bible classes that everyone who was there will remember forever! Patti and Kathryn’s planning and preparation of every detail made the day perfect! Even the plates and napkins with animal faces on them were fun and made the ladies and children smile. Thank you again for putting this all together and for sharing from your heart Christ’s love. We are grateful to you for coming here and putting so much time and effort into this event, which was so special in a community where these events do not happen very often. In addition, you energize and encourage our ministry staff which helps us to do the very job that God has called us to, share the gospel and serve others.”
