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.

Casey also comes with experience in rentals and lighting and has a passion for bringing a couple’s design vision to life.
