Catherine is amazing!

I cannot say enough good things about Catherine and La Fete. She was our day-of-coordinator for a wedding at the Carolina Inn, but she did so much more and was with us every step of the way. She thought of everything, was so organized, and made our weekend entirely stress free. I lived in CA while planning our wedding in NC, and she was always available to meet in person when we were in town. I'm not sure I would have felt the need to book a coordinator or planner if it were not a part of our Carolina Inn package, but now I cannot imagine not doing it. The fact that my mom and mother-in-law just got to sit back and enjoy the day was everything. Thank you Catherine!!!

Love love love

I can’t say enough good things about my experience with La Fete and specifically with Catherine Langhart – she is truly a professional but you also feel like you have a friend helping you through the process. She was extremely knowledgeable about everything, she went above and beyond answering the million questions we had. She was able to point us in the right direction for other vendors we used, and really made everything as seamless as can be in the months leading up to our wedding, and including the day of the event. She was organized, calm, and put everyone at ease throughout the whole day. Love her so much. Can’t thank her enough!

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!

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.
