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!
We specialize in bespoke wedding and event planning designed around each individual client’s unique story and taste. We take great pride in providing our clients with an amazing and exciting design and planning experience from the moment of our first consultation to the very last sparkler exit and dance.
We combine logistics with design to ensure events are not only orchestrated flawlessly and beautifully, but also a gorgeous representation of the love and happiness at the heart of the celebration. Due to our high level of customization and planning, we do not believe in traditional “packages” as no two celebrations are alike.
For a comprehensive list of services and to have a customized proposal created specifically for you, please contact us for a complimentary consultation.
We want to learn more about you as a couple. We want to know how you met, where you fell in love, which experiences have created your love story. By carefully infusing your style and personality into our design, we create an event reflective of your personal aesthetic, style, culture and traditions.
As no two couples are the same, neither are their celebrations. Through our collaborative process, we work diligently to determine our couples' desires and expectations. This process allows our team to perfectly match you with services that best fit your needs, budget and taste.
Our expertise and proven process precisely and effectively manage all aspects of your wedding day. Our goal is to work with our couples to manage the production of their weddings from start to finish—taking the stress out of the wedding day so that they can enjoy every minute of their cherished celebration.
