Meet Kate


Meet Kate


For more than a decade, I’ve proudly built up a strong foundation for event planning and design.  I’ve had the pleasure of managing events for a Boston-based magazine publisher; at a popular Rhode Island wedding venue; and for numerous corporate, non-profit, and higher education clients including Harvard Business School and Boston College—where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Marketing and Business Management.

As a marketing professional with a keen eye for design, I always felt that I could—and, more importantly, should—do more with my talents. After poring—and slightly obsessing— over the details, personalization, and design of my own wedding, I decided to take a leap of faith and launched Kate Murtaugh Events & Design in 2015—a true extension of my heart. 

I’m all about the swoon and the details. I love the excitement of a proposal, the infectious energy of a newly engaged couple, the goose bumps you get from looking at a groom’s face when he first sees his bride, and the awe in each guest as they take in the whole experience we’ve created together. I love to knock the socks off my clients and their guests.

I truly love what I do and will always be thankful to each and every client who trusts me to join them on their journey to “I do.”When it all comes together, my clients’biggest concern should be whether or not to have another glass of champagne…and I’ll make sure they do!
