The La Fête Team

Katie Dunn


Owner and Lead Planner

La Fête founder Katie Dunn has devoted her career to wedding planning, design and event production. Whether on the runways of New York City where she coordinated all fashion, jewelry and architectural special events for Swarovski North America, the offices of Classic Party Rentals where as Sales & Marketing Manager she oversaw a six-person sales force and determined the annual product line, or the elegant halls of Chapel Hill’s Carolina Inn where she planned and executed dozens of weddings, Katie’s hands-on approach, unflappable attitude and dedication to detail has equaled success.

Katie holds a BA in communications and psychology from UNC-Chapel Hill, and furthered her studies at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology with coursework in event design, planning and execution.  Katie specializes in making your wedding or special event a one of a kind design and custom experience.  Katie is available for full service planning.

Event Planner

Casey Harris first joined the La Fête team years ago as an intern while she was a student of Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC-Chapel Hill. Casey is a businesswoman at heart and that professionalism reflects in all her work. Casey also comes with experience in rentals and lighting and has a passion for bringing a couple’s design vision to life. Casey’s favorite part of wedding and event planning is the unique clients we get to work with. She loves nothing more than building relationships with our couples and their families throughout the planning process. She is also the ultimate flower enthusiast and can never get enough – especially when it comes to her favorite, peonies!
