Meet Katie. Ever since she was a little girl and sneaked out of bed to peek at her mother’s boisterous 30th birthday soiree, Katie has loved parties. If there was ever an excuse to throw an elaborate dinner party, birthday to-do, shower, or party for the sake of having fun, Katie has always jumped at the opportunity. When she planned her own wedding she discovered how much fun planning large-scale events could be.
Katie’s career has included positions in alumni relations where she spent over seven years crafting reunions and other alumni focused events. These experiences solidified her love for planning and designing events and gave her the necessary skill-set to be successful.
Whether you are planning a 50th birthday party, hosting a fundraiser or designing your perfect wedding, Katie and Nordine Events will make your dream event a reality. Her aim is to make it look effortless. She has developed relationships with great vendors across Chicagoland to weave together the tapestry of your special day, whatever the occasion.
Katie grew up in Chicago and now lives in Evanston. She studied philosophy with a focus on ethics and worked in theater as a costume designer. She has an eye for space and will work to create a flow in any setting. With a flair for the dramatic, she can help transform your home or venue to create the event you picture in your mind. She can arrange all the details, from rentals and décor to menu and beverage selections, and will set-up everything on the day of the event. She is happy to stay on-hand during the event or disappear so you can shine as the host or hostess.
Katie is creative, friendly, hard-working, detail-oriented, and honest. She strives to put a smile on everyone’s face.
