Kind Words


Kate Goddard and everyone on her team are a Godsend. I cannot say enough about her responsiveness, adaptability, creativity, attention to detail, thick skin, resourcefulness and overall passion to deliver a flawless experience. Kate concepted and produced a beautiful pop-up interactive experience for my brand at a high profile, high traffic event, in a short amount of time and with budget restrictions. She takes your vision personally and is committed to delivering. Definitely would work with her again and again!

On behalf of the entire team here, we wanted to send a huge thank you for all of your hard work on the new Zendesk launch! Everyone was blown away - including our executive team - that attended last night. The look and feel represented our brand perfectly. And the event really did go off without a hitch. 
I know event planning is very difficult, and yet you always seem to manage everything with grace and ease. That really helps our team relax and know you have things covered. Again, thank you so much, and looking forward to great things at SXSW!

My husband and I grew up in Austin and knew we wanted to get married there. However, we were living in Michigan and the thought of planning a wedding from so far away seemed daunting. I found Kate because she had done amazing work at one of the venues I was considering. She was beyond helpful and responsive, even before I had actually hired her as I was trying to decide between venues. She gave me the confidence I needed to choose the venue that I loved and the ability to customize every aspect, over the one that just seemed easier because it was all inclusive. Kate helped ease my fears about planning everything from a long distance. She was always available to talk and spaced everything out so that it was never overwhelming. There were many times when we started to worry or stress that my husband and I said to each other, “it’s going to be okay because we have Kate.” She turned our wedding vision into something more beautiful and spectacular than I could have ever imagined. All of the vendors she put us in contact were amazing and she did an incredible job of coordinating everything. She has a spectacular creative vision in addition to being a careful and thoughtful planner. Kate provided so much support and help during our rehearsal dinner and wedding and made everything stress free, even with last minute changes. We truly can’t recommend her enough

How do you create a brand new outdoor festival in central Austin? You call Kate at Wild Sky Events, that’s  how! We gave Kate every imaginable challenge: no power, no water, no facilities, etc. And, of course, an impossible deadline. Kate jumped in, blended right into our team, crafted a plan that fit our budget, and made it happen. Every challenge was an opportunity for her to exceed our expectations. Best of all, she was a pleasure to work with. I wholeheartedly recommend her expertise.

Kate was fantastic! She really took our event to the next level and was amazing onsite! Her attention to detail and problem solving skills were on point and definitely recommend her.

Kate did an exceptional job delivering our vision for the party we hosted. Any questions I had were answered immediately, and on site the entire event to handle the situations that arose. Highly recommend Kate and her team at Wild Sky Events.

We were very lucky to have found Kate at the beginning of our wedding planning process. I interviewed a couple different companies, but only with Kate, did I feel like I was on the same wavelength. I wanted an amazing day, but did not want it to be overly sweet or precious. Kate completely understood my vision and helped me create a very stylish, modern, Indian-Western fusion wedding. She really was key in bringing all of my pinterest ideas to life and pulling them together in a way that made complete sense. Kate has such great ideas and is so very generous with her time. We had a lot of issues that were non wedding related but that effected the scope of our wedding. Kate was so calm and helpful in figuring out how to work around these issues and come up with alternative plans that would have been equally amazing if we had had to implement them. Give Kate a call if you are considering using a planner! You won’t go wrong!

I don’t know how to rate perfection but 5 stars is not enough! Kate’s ability to design and plan down to every detail was remarkable. The day of the wedding exceeded every expectation. Every guest told me that this was the most amazing wedding that they had been to. It was unique, beautiful, and magical. Kate took care of everything and kept the special event on schedule. As a mother, I did not have to worry about any facet as I knew Kate had it all handled and then some. Thanks Kate - you are now a special friend to our family forever.

“Kate and Wild Sky Events MADE our company’s party (Zendesk) at SXSW this year. We rented out The Container Bar in Austin, and she worked for 6 months with me (and I had never had any corporate events experience) to make it a complete success. If you’re looking for a corporate events planner that knows her stuff, works quickly, can be counted on and will help you navigate all the intricacies of the events world, definitely talk to her. She shined in these particular areas: -Took care of everything (and when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING - from managing exploding neon lights to dealing with last minute venue flooding) without making you worry about anything. -Was super creative and came to me with some amazing ideas and recommending the best vendors - while always thinking about how we can achieve the best outcome for the lowest budget. 

A good event planner is like a magician - everything comes together seamlessly and without effort but they are working tirelessly behind the scenes to make it seem that way. Kate is a brilliant magician and pulled many rabbits out of her hat without stressing me out with issues. I would absolutely work with Kate again for other events and will actually MISS working with her because she is so wonderful. If you’re looking for someone who gets it, and is delightful to partner with, definitely talk to her.”

Kate did an amazing job of planning our wedding! Why Kate is so great: 1. We planned a destination wedding in Austin in the midst of major career transitions. Kate kept us on schedule but didn’t overwhelm us with decisions. 2. She knew so many great vendors and anything we needed, she had a person ready. Our wedding was in a venue she hadn’t done a wedding at before, but the process went off flawlessly. 3. She exceeded my expectations on being able to handle input and requests from bunch of strongly opinionated family members. I didn’t have to deal with any drama (yay!) and she kept everyone happy! 4. Most importantly, our wedding was the best day ever. My husband and I could not have dreamed of a more perfect wedding. Also, our family and friends have said over and over that they had a wonderful time. The day was executed without us or our guests knowing about any stress, drama, mistakes (I’m not sure there was any honestly). Kate handled it all, so we could focus on us. I would 100% recommend Kate and her team to anyone for planning an event.

From the moment I stumbled upon Kate & Wild Sky Events, I knew my wedding was going to be incredible. Kate made everything a breeze for me in the decision making process. She is well connected with vendors & very knowledgable about the industry. Kate was always willing to go the “extra mile” to accommodate any requests. She is truly talented with the way she envisions the decor & set up of weddings. My husband & I can’t recommend her enough. We had the best day ever! Thanks Kate :)!

 ”I was hesitant to hire a wedding coordinator, but after all is said and done, best money spent on the wedding hands down. Kate and her team do such an amazing job and made me feel like I could really sit back and relax on my big day. Kate is organized, accessible, thoughtful and creative. I was able to have a blast at my wedding because of Wild Sky Events.”

-Tate (Bride)
Kate was amazing!  She is detailed oriented, organized, efficient and most of all so easy to work with.  She had so many great ideas for our event and was able to keep it all within out budget.  I would highly recommend Kate for any event!  She was truly a gem and I am looking forward to working with her for our next event.
