About La Vie Events
hi there!

I'm Katelin, founder of La Vie Events.

As lead planner and designer, my goal is to help my clients celebrate life's biggest moments in ways that feel true to their personalities and styles. I'm a people person, which means meetings often take place over happy hour, and clients often turn into friends. My favorite sound might just be the clinking of glasses after a heartfelt toast. 


I'm partial to ocean blues, wide-open spaces, and California's coastline. I'm happiest when traveling and learning new things, and you can usually find me midway through a podcast or new recipe. I've always loved celebrating, so maybe it's not surprising that I throw parties for a living. I couldn't think of anything better!
