Emily Priest - Lead Coordinator / Assistant Coordinator

There is nothing I love more then the joy of a wedding day!  As your coordinator, it is my goal to ensure that your wedding day is the most joyous of all!  I will work hard to ensure that your wedding day runs smoothly and stress free.  With my high attention to detail, easy-going attitude, and positive spirit, I will work together with your vendors to help make all your wedding dreams come true!

I'm a Texas girl living in a Midwestern world.  My favorite pastimes include cuddling my two little pups, enjoying a good movie with my husband, or staking out a new taco place.  When I'm not working to make all your wedding dreams come true, I like to pretend I'm the next Joanna Gaines.  I love a great love story and I would be honored to help write the start of the next chapter in yours!

Hannah Hobson - Lead Coordinator / Assistant Coordinator

I joined the Wild Hill team because I love the joy and beauty surrounding a wedding. I love to make sure every single detail is just right, and the day is seamless for family and friends. Getting to know my brides and helping them to make their dreams a reality is my favorite part of being a wedding coordinator. This is your day and I hope to make it everything you dreamed of and more. 

When not working with our wonderful brides and team members, I work full time in Human Resources (hello – problem solver!) and then spend my spare time volunteering at a local animal shelter. I enjoy spending time with my own pup either adventuring outside or cuddled up on the couch. I feel life is about balance and I find mine between the gym and ice cream. I love nothing more than the love of a pup and a Wild Hill wedding day, and I can’t wait to be a part of yours!

Caryn Tate - Lead Coordinator / Assistant Coordinator

As a former bride, 3-time MOH and regular wedding guest, I know how important your wedding day is from the big picture to the smallest details. I joined the Wild Hill team to help your visions come to life and ensure the day is a successful reflection of you and your new spouse. 

In addition to party-planning, I enjoy home renovation projects with my husband (I mainly provide ideas; he provides the handiwork), running around the KC area (in the form of races), and cuddling our kitty, Truman (we love our alma mater, Mizzou). My full-time career in digital advertising means I have a knack for the details. I'll bring this and a passion for DIY to help make your Wild Hill wedding a dream come true!

Ashley Watters: Assistant Coordinator

I joined the Wild Hill Team because I love helping people and I love watching two people happily in love, tie the knot. As an assistant wedding coordinator, it is my job to help ensure that your wedding day is as perfect as you have always dreamed it would be. 

When I am not coordinating weddings, you can find me rooting on the Kansas Jayhawks or the Chiefs, hanging with my fiancé - planning my own wedding, or enjoying Kansas City’s best restaurants. I love being surrounded by good food and good people.

Emily Foreman - Assistant Coordinator

I joined the Wild Hill team shortly after getting married and wanted to experience that day over and over again. There’s nothing like a wedding day where you get to see a bride experience pure happiness and joy while being surrounded by their closest friends and family. I love being able to help brides feel the way I felt on my wedding day and get the day they always dreamed of. I’ll make sure everything runs smoothly so you can spend your day soaking it all in!

I work full time as a Recruiter where I get to help people land their dream job. I love to spend my free time snuggling with my dachshund, working out, or walking to Starbucks with my husband. Most weekends you can find me at a local restaurant or coffee shop trying something new and writing a yelp review about it. I love to help others make their dreams a reality which is why I love helping brides on their wedding day!
