Katie Huebel

Owner & Founder

Katie Huebel has been orchestrating weddings and events for over 20 years. After graduating from the University of South Carolina with degrees in Marketing and Business she utilized her sales background. She worked as a manager in staffing sales for over 4 years in Atlanta. Feeling the urge to tap into her marketing and creative side, Katie began the process of opening her own event planning firm. In 1998 Katie built the framework of what is now WED. Growing up in an industry with a mother that is a florist gave her the tools needed to create a thriving and innovative business. Thanks to the hard work and creative style of the WED team, the company continues to thrive!
