I can't say enough good things about Casey Harris. Hiring Casey was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding, I would not have been able to plan or execute my vision without her. She went above and beyond during every interaction I had with her to ensure my wedding day was exactly what I envisioned. She was always patient with me and responded quickly whenever I had a question or needed help. She made extra visits to my venue and to my vendors leading up to the wedding to help out when I unexpectedly moved out of state. Casey is incredibly talented, organized, professional and kind. I would recommend her highly to everyone.

Hands down, the very best thing we did in planning our daughter’s wedding was hiring LaFete for design, production and weekend coordination. We worked with Katie and she was so easy to work with and incredibly patient while answering our endless questions over the course of the year we spent planning. Her expertise and great relationships with the vendors made dealing with the contracts so easy; she really took all that off our shoulders completely, which was a huge relief! Our daughter had a very specific vision for the design aspects and Katie was able to create exactly what she wanted, making great suggestions that ensured that we focused spending on where the most impact would be. She was very attuned to our daughter’s desire for certain things to be unique and it was really fun working with her ideas to make that happen. Katie is great at solving problems calmly and quickly, and very reassuring when the second-guessing of decisions happens! I’m sure she spent way more time listening to me worry about things than she should have(!), but not once did she make me feel like i was wasting her time. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that we just had a fabulous experience working with Katie and her staff. I honestly cannot imagine how we could have ever done it without them!

Professional Network & Endorsements

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.

I love working with Katie and Rebecca. Their weddings are always well organized and they are a lot of fun to work with. I've worked with them on many events. I photographed a particularly difficult wedding last year in terms of the number of guests and the size of the bridal party (28 people) but Katy kept everything on track and the wedding was an outstanding success. Looking forward to working many more wedding with them in the future.

Katie and her team are so fun and make an excellent team when we are working at an event together. They have a keen eye for detail, and create events that are stellar. We would recommend la Fete for anyone needing a planner for their wedding, corporate event, or party.
