We hired Catherine as our wedding planner and she was everything we wanted and so much more! We highly recommend her services.Sent on 05/27/2019
Catherine was essential to making every aspect of our day beautiful and personal. From our very first meeting, I knew Catherine was something special. As people without strong natural inclinations when it came to wedding planning, Catherine guided us through every step without making it seem too complex. She found us the best vendors, gave wonderful advice, and made our vision come to life so effortlessly! She also worked well within our budget and was super flexible with all our requests and last-minute changes! Most importantly, Catherine was supportive and attentive through every stage of the process- we were so grateful for how responsive she was to calls and emails. She coordinated with all our vendors so I wasn't scrambling to contact dozens of people when our guest count changed or our timeline shifted. She is so knowledgeable and talented and we just knew we were in the best hands with her. It was such a dream to work with Catherine!
On a personal level, Catherine was so personable and easy to work with- so many guests and members of my bridal party raved about how wonderful Catherine was! We could not have asked for a better planner and would hire her a million times over! We only wish we had hired her sooner! Finally, these words truly cannot do her justice- hire her and you'll see!

Catherine was amazing!
We had Catherine as our day of coordinator- but she truly did more than that. She was always so responsive to emails and flexible to our wants and needs. She was so organized and our wedding day went so smoothly!! Highly recommend using La Fete for your planning needs!Sent on 11/18/2018

Catherine is the best!
Sitting down with Catherine I not only felt like I was working with a knowledge professional (which I was) but I also felt as if I was sitting and chatting with a friend who sincerely cared about my wants, needs and frustrations with wedding planning. I had so many ideas and thoughts running through my head and Catherine listened to my jumbled rants and turned them into the most spectacular wedding day!Sent on 01/17/2019
I can't thank her enough for stepping up and being such a helpful hand when things not only went right but wrong; like our priest not showing up for the rehearsal! I was basically in tears when she told me to turn off my phone and enjoy my last single night and to leave all the worrying to her, she ensured me, that my (now) husband and I, would without a doubt, be married the next day :) She was right and handled a very stressful situation seamlessly!
Catherine was so flexible and always answered my emails and phone calls immediately! I can't thank her and all the ladies at La Fete enough!
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.
