Sweet notes from SOME OF our clients and their families
"Kate was instrumental in so many ways in making our wedding a stress-free day! From translating my ideas into a vision, providing organization and structure to the overwhelming planning process and in ensuring flawless execution with high attention to detail, it just never could've happened as smoothly without Kate.
Kate is incredibly resourceful and helped find and vet many vendors for us - her judgement and expertise made me confident that we were getting a high quality vendor for a very good price. She was proactive in her communication with us, so I never worried if we were on schedule. Kate was also so key in helping us stay within our budget, and she navigated sensitive price conversations with the utmost professionalism.
Kate has impeccable taste and I relied on her opinion on everything from food selection, decor, logistics, and wedding etiquette. While we wanted Kate's recommendations on almost everything, she would be very easy to work with if you already had vision and just needed her help to coordinate or execute. "

"I honestly can't say enough great things about KMED. With only 3 months to plan a wedding, I knew an event planner was a necessity. Kate was the first event planner I called and I didn't even feel the need search for more after speaking with her. All of my worries were put at ease, from that very first call.
Kate had incredible communication and had a way of making me feel like I was the only bride that she was attending to. We didn't have to worry about anything- from researching vendors to linen ideas, Kate handled it all. Her listening skills, coupled with her creative eye and attention to detail, our visions and dream wedding was turned into reality.
We received countless compliments from all of our guests about what an amazingly beautiful wedding we had and the credit goes to Kate Murtaugh Events & Design. My venue coordinator said that she was the best they've worked with."

"Planning a wedding without a wedding planner is like building a house without an architect. And Kate was everything we needed and more!
Kate met with my daughter (the bride) and all of us to discuss the vision my daughter had for her wedding. Kate was very attentive and professional. After our initial meeting, she quickly followed up with a color-coded time line and lots of great suggestions that were within our budget. She did a lot of research, called many vendors she felt offered the best value, and reported back to us. Each time we met, she helped us hone in the key elements, solidify contracts, and make sure we were right on schedule.
As the wedding day approached, we realized all the fabulous personalized details could not have been coordinated without the expertise Kate brought to us. Not only is Kate extremely sharp, her personality makes working with her a true enjoyment.
During and after the wedding, we received endless compliments from family and friends, and we have Kate to thank. She helped us with the endless details that made our guests, who have all attended many events, feel like our daughter's wedding was extraordinary. "
My compliments to Kate for running a first class event and unforgettable wedding."
