Hey, I’m Kate, the founder of Kate & Company Events and I’m not the only new one around here so let me introduce myself a little more!
I was born in Upstate New York and raised in a quaint town in Connecticut with three older sisters, plenty of pets, and a whole lot of impishness. My family can never resist telling stories about the mischievous feats I’ve “accomplished” like climbing out my bedroom window on bedsheets… Which hasn’t changed much, I’m still as adventurous and spunky as ever but I channel that into my new business, traveling, hobbies, and collecting amazing and equally as nutty friends.
I have serious pride for my New England roots but it didn’t satiate my obsession with New York City, so I lived there every summer throughout college and moved there permanently straight after graduation. One of the best parts of moving to New York City was meeting a tall, dark and handsome guy who’s now my sweet husband. The Big Apple afforded me so many opportunities and learning experiences along the way and life just keeps teaching me that genuine connection, being known, and loving others is truly living!! And that piping hot earl grey tea, salty ocean air, and snuggles (fur ball or human) will fix just about anything.
Thank you to Kelsey of Kelsey Combe Photography for the super fun photo shoot and the lovely portraits featured in this post (and all throughout the website!) It’s so exciting to start meeting a wider network of industry professionals, including this gem of a photographer.
