About Me

Hi I am Katie! I love Portland and all the things it has to offer. I began working events at a young age and have been immersed in the events industry in Portland for many years. I’ve always had a deep passion for organizing and planning and I believe that every special event deserves to be stunning. With a majority of my background being in catering I have a unique eye for events and what needs to be done the day of. 

I am a married to my best friend Adam and we have a beautiful daughter Olivia and our newest addition is our son Lucas. I love to travel, a good book, and spending time with my friends and family. 

I'd love to have a conversation about your event and see if I can help in any way. I look forward to hearing from you! 

Warm regards,

How do we begin to say thank you? I can confidently say - none of us saw this coming...but if we did it all over again, I'd want you with us every single time. You not only helped us plan, then re plan the wedding of our dreams, but you also became a great friend. I cannot say thank you enough.

Hire Katie Kearn/ Portland Event & Design to help you with your wedding, trust me! She has so many amazing vendor relationships and invaluable advice to offer you for your big day. She helped me stay calm throughout the entire process when it was clear I had no idea what I was doing. I can't recommend hiring her enough. It was the most necessary money spent of the entire process. Our wedding went down without a hiccup and that would not have been possible without Katie!

Thank you so much for everything you did to help plan, coordinate and execute out wedding! We could not be any happier with how everything went, and so appreciate all the time and effort you put into making our dreams come true...It was so nice to not be bothered with problems or lots of questions on the wedding day, and just get to enjoy it. You are amazing! 

Danell and Josh


Where to start!? First and foremost- Thank you for taking us on! I know we needed a lot of guidance and patience, and for your ability to consistently guide us through this crazy planning, we are forever grateful...You work so hard for your clients. We wouldn't have been able to do this without you!

Kelly and Gary
