Katy Roberts is one of the most respected wedding planners in the industry known for her professionalism, top organizational and people skills, unending attention to detail, and passion for design. She wants every wedding to be beautiful, inviting, and personal to the client. Exceeding expectations and quality work every time is Katy’s goal. She has endless energy, truly loves what she does, and feels a personal responsibility to make this once-in-a-lifetime event for her couples truly special.
Katy is a meticulous planner, but understands weddings are an emotional experience and clients (and their families) need support and patience. Katy quickly earns clients’ trust and puts them at ease, so they are able to enjoy the process and breathe a sigh of relief on the day.
Katy calls Maui, Hawaii home and loves to bring couples to the island for truly special destination weddings in paradise. Prior to founding VOWS in 2003, Katy worked in public relations, marketing and corporate events for a firm in Downtown Seattle. She earned a degree from Gonzaga University in Journalism and Sociology (Go Bulldogs!) and also studied a year abroad in her favorite city Florence, Italy.
Love of travel is still dear to Katy’s heart and she also enjoys interior design (Fixer Upper addict!), dance, animals, a great Netflix series, and everything about island life including a relaxing beach day, snorkeling to say “hi” to our Honu friends, or getting out on one of our favorite boats. A Maui sunset dinner with a glass of Prosecco and her handsome and supportive husband, Ty, is her favorite way to spend an evening. On her days off, you can find Katy walking her two kids: Finley the Shih Tzu and Ginger the King Charles Spaniel, at a Barre class, scanning Instagram and Pinterest for inspiration, or enjoying Happy Hour (or “Pau Hana” as we say in Hawaii) with good friends.
