Catherine is a gem!
Live out of state and contacted La Fete to help plan a rehearsal dinner in the Old Well Room at Carolina Inn for 65 people. From the initial phone conversation to the night of the dinner, Catherine was amazing. She lined up and attended vendor appointments with me when I flew in to make decisions, listened to my vision, and corresponded frequently with status updates. She is attentive to detail, creative and compassionate, and a joy to have partnered with to make the rehearsal dinner a memorable experience for the bride and groom. She is a blessing and true asset to her company and anyone who has the opportunity to work with her for an event. Thanks for a spectacular evening!Sent on 01/27/2020

Casey was the BEST planner (and friend!)
I’m not sure there is a better way to explain how great Casey was than my fiancé saying over and over “Casey is the S*!T!” We were moving across the country to San Francisco from NC while wedding planning (which I don’t recommend), but she was there to manage everything back home. She even worked West Coast hours! I would send her tons of texts at dinner time in SF and she’d respond that night when she should have been sleeping. Anything we’d talked about would be knocked out before I’d even woken up the next day. Her responses never took more than a few hours (generally a few minutes)!Sent on 11/14/2019
Our trolley for transportation broke down the wedding morning, and she quickly managed the process and came up stretch bus that ended up being more fun AND it was handled before I had time to panic. :) She was so organized, creative, and fun.
Our design came together beautifully. I was blown away stepping into a classic ballroom without much character to a glowing candle lit room covered in stunning fabrics and gorgeous flowers.
But aside from all of the things her job “required,” she did more. She truly became a friend, a confidant, a therapist, a mediator, etc. She helped schedule hair appointments, picked which white dress I should wear to what event, etc. She truly went above and beyond and was there for ANYTHING.
We could not have picked a better person to make the planning process and our big day truly perfect! You cannot go wrong hiring her.
Her assistant, Rachel, was also great day of at getting us where we needed to be and when and keeping a bride running slightly behind cool, calm, and collected!
Thank you Casey

WOW! What a dream team and an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Not only did La Fete bring our vision to life but went above and beyond in creating a day that was truly magical. After just a few conversations they knew exactly what we were looking for to make our big day something we will never forget. They kept us organized and calm even during some moments of stress. Their guidance and expertise helped us navigate this crazy and wonderful process, but most importantly they made the whole wedding planning process FUN which allowed us to enjoy our engagement and the entire wedding weekend knowing they had everything under control. They always made time for us, worked around our schedules and were always available to answer even the smallest of questions. We could not have asked for a better team to be with us every step of the way and at the end of it all it felt like they were a part of our family.Sent on 09/25/2019
Events by La Fete is one of our favorite planner companies! The girls at La Fete always do an amazing job and make our job so much easier! You are in great hands with La Fete!
Katie and her staff of wonderful women are superb at what they do--execute fabulous weddings! They do other events but I only see them at weddings I officiate. I can always count on every detail being handled and if any challenges arise (such as adverse weather) there is always a plan b ready to spring into with finesse. I highly recommend La Fete!
We have worked with Katie from La Fete on a winter wedding in Downtown Raleigh. She made our job extremely easy, and was very professional! Great eye for detail and we genuinely look forward to working with her again.
