owner / designer
Like a true Southern lady, Kate’s passion for design started as a young girl. In time she graduated from dollhouses and made it official with a BFA in Interior Design from Valdosta State University. She then honed her skills working for one of the South’s foremost authorities in interior design, Phoebe Howard. Kate learned a great deal about design from Mrs. Howard, but most importantly she learned the value of following a dream.
With a knack for hospitality – we did mention she is a Southern lady – Kate followed her dream into the world of event design at A Legendary Event. Not only did she charm her brides and VIP clients, but she impressed her peers as well, landing many accolades including Special Events magazine’s “Top 30 Under 40.” “Being formally recognized was a surprise and a huge honor, but I feel honored every time clients select me to help design their big events.”
Kate brings her interior design background to each and every party she plans and her cheerful disposition and can-do attitude are definitely pluses when working in the fast paced world of events.
Kate lives in Brookhaven with her husband, Brian, and their floppy rescue dog, Samson Gray. She loves poppies and ranunculus in any color and believes vodka and water with a twist does a body good. Her idea of the perfect vacation is anywhere on a warm sunny beach. Her lowest of lows is a room full of reeking candles.
