Kate Turner is the owner and lead experience maker of Kate + Company, a Midwest based event design house established in 2012. Kate’s concierge meets interior design approach has landed her crew on Vogue’s and Bride’s Magazine’s lists of best wedding planners, and their work has been found everywhere from Martha Stewart to Grace Ormonde and – her personal favorite – preserved in her clients albums and Instagram feeds! The Kate + Company team continues reimagining what it means to be a wedding designer in the Midwest.
Kate’s panache for perfection and commitment to authenticity drove her to co-found 23 City Blocks Hospitality Group in 2013. As the first in the Saint Louis market to bring restaurant style cuisine to private events, Kate’s strategic vision has led this renowned hospitality group to challenge the boundaries of luxury in the emerging Midwest market.
Though both companies are award-winning, that’s not what Kate’s most proud of. Her biggest claim to fame is surrounding herself with the greatest people. After all, the best weddings take a village and Kate prides herself on having pretty incredible teams by her side each step of the way.
Her true passion lies in creating gorgeous events that reflect the unique style of each couple, honoring the privilege of orchestrating the day. When she’s not commanding a room flip in a pair of heels and statement earrings, you’ll find her playing tourist, with her exuberant toddler and loving husband, or hunting for her next bit of inspiration!
