Katerina Vogli is an AMAZING wedding planner & also such a wonderful person!! She goes above & beyond for her brides! I could not have had such a magical wedding without Katerina. We live in the US, so planning a wedding on Paros island seemed almost impossible..then I found Katerina & knew that we were a perfect fit! You can tell that Katerina is passionate about what she does and this is not just a job for her. Her recommendations for the DJ & bartenders were outstanding. The guests were raving about the unique and delicious concoctions that the bartenders were making & the DJ had us dancing ALL night long!! The decorations & flowers were gorgeous..she truly did an outstanding job with all the details! She also helped with all the weekend activities including a beach party the day before. Thank you so much Katerina for making it the best day of our lives-you are truly so talented at what you do!!!

Twelve months ago my husband proposed to me. I always knew that if I got married, I would love a wedding on Mykonos, the island where I spent many summers during my youth and place I seem to fall in love with again and again every time I visit. Eleven months ago I sat in my living room in New York City trying to figure out how on earth I was going to pull this off – despite my military organizational skills, Skype only goes so far. And then I got the best present I could ever have hoped for – Katerina Vogli.
Katerina came into my life, and all of a sudden, it was as if I had a little magic fairy. I agree with the other reviews here that the best money spent was to hire her as our wedding planner. From day one, Katerina was a joy to work with – fun, energetic, full of great ideas, efficient, professional, detail-oriented, organized and generally on top of everything the entire time. She made it look so effortless as she worked incredibly hard to find us the perfect florist, DJ, cake caterer, wine, and of course finalise the details of the day. She was in charge of decoration and when I look at our wedding photos I sometimes think I dreamt the whole event, as it is impossibly beautiful. Photoshop stand back, Katerina is in charge! She has fantastic taste and when I saw the result of her work on the wedding day, I knew I would hold that image in my memory for the rest of my life.
Now, most wedding planners will do what they are hired to do, however Katerina went far above and beyond her duties. She helped so many friends with flights, ferry tickets, hotels, hair appointments; she looked after my and my husband’s family like they were her own; most importantly she looked after my husband and I better than our own mum’s did! I had the misfortune to get ill the week before my wedding and Katerina ran around Mykonos to find a doctor, to get me medicines and most importantly, she was there every day to tell me that I will get better and everything will be perfect, just as we planned it. And of course she was right.
Everything on our actual wedding day, and days leading up to it, went very smoothly. We were fortunate to have incredibly kind and passionate people take care of us, and yet again I have to give credit to Katerina. Her choice of all vendors was impeccable and everyone she works with is as professional as she is. I am not sure how they all do it, but while the service was fantastic, you never actually saw much of anyone – I am telling you, fairy type work.
Most importantly however, I picked up the phone eleven months ago to find a wedding planner, and walked away a few weeks ago having found a friend. Katerina, we will be eternally grateful for the gift that was YOU and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making every dream of ours come true. I am desperately trying to think of what other events I can organize in Greece just so I can hire you again!

If you want perfection on your wedding day, Katerina is your girl!
She was our planner for our August 2011 wedding. My fiance talked me into looking for a planner so we didn’t have to any work on the day of our wedding. And oh my god! Was it a great decision!
I highly recommend using Katerina as your planner!

The best money that we spent on our wedding was on hiring Katerina Vogli from Mood Effects as our wedding planner. We were living in Athens Greece, my husband is Greek and I am American. I was a bit nervous, because I had a very clear idea of how I wanted our wedding to be, from the flowers, to the music, to the general atmosphere and tone. I had been to several Greek weddings, and I knew that they were quite different from most American weddings.
Katerina was incredibly patient and sweet and made all of my wishes come true. Her wonderful florist gave me a beautiful flowing orchid bouquet, table tops covered with multiple types of orchids, and freesia, and honestly orchids, everywhere!! The firework company that Katerina hired for us is the best in Greece, they did the Olympics in 2004. People were surprised how long and professional the fireworks were.
Katerina honestly took such good care of us. We had weekly meetings with her & she became a good friend in the process. So many people have told me that wedding planning is such a stressful experience, but planning our wedding with Katerina was honestly so much fun.
Our wedding was on Mykonos Island and was a truly international affair, we had Americans, Canadians, Italians and of course Greeks. I was a little worried that everyone would enjoy themselves, but it was such an incredible success. Katerina’s DJ was wonderful, he played every song I requested of him, and at the time I requested it. We had lounge music during the sunset cocktail hour, motown & some Italian music during dinner, and a mix of international, American dance music & Greek music during the party.
It was the best day, actually weekend of my life, and I know that I probably would never have been able to pull this off myself. Even more importantly I didn’t have to worry about a thing the weekend of the wedding, because Katerina was handling everything, my husband and I were able to enjoy Mykonos with our friends and family, and that is how a wedding should be. If you are an American, or non Greek getting married in Greece, I highly recommend that you hire Katerina Vogli as your wedding planner, she will take wonderful care of you and make your wedding day just as perfect as you’d hoped it would be, and even better!
