Approaching my final semester of college, I panicked at the thought of starting my career in only a few short months. I went to UNC Wilmington and studied Business Marketing and Management. Myself and my parents always envisioned me becoming a CEO of a large, successful company, and we pretty much assumed the corporate life would be the route for me. But in reality, I've always had more of a creative mind than a technical one. The nine-to-five life was not ever going to be for me, and it didn't take long at all to figure that out.

After working alongside an incredible wedding planner in Wilmington for about a year, I decided to move back home to Charlotte and launch Katie Brooks Event Co. out on a limb. Here we are, three years later, and I could not be happier with where this sweet little business is taking me. Without a shadow of a doubt, weddings are my passion and being a wedding planner is what I have been called to do. It is allowing me to travel all over this beautiful state and see places I never even knew were right around the corner from home, and it is introducing me to some of the most wonderful couples and families I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. If you'll have me, I'd love to take part in one of the most special days of your life. I'm so excited to meet you, and if there is anything I can do in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out!

let's get personal, shall we?

so glad you are here!

I'm a mom to two beautiful Australian Shepherds, Dottie and Auggie. They're best buds. Auggie is the biggest goofball with the sweetest heart, and Dottie has quite the spunky attitude... What can I say, she gets it from her mama.

I graduated college at 20 years old and started Katie Brooks Event Co. that same year. My business went full time by the time I was 22, and I haven't looked back since :).

I'm convinced that if I don't drink at least one grande iced caramel macchiato a day, my heart may stop. In other words, I should probably pay rent at Starbucks I'm there so often.
