We believe a luxurious event doesn't have to be stuffy, and exclusive can be inclusive. Our ethos is strongly rooted in kindness, and our trademark is pairing intentional design with a hospitality-driven guest experience to ensure everyone feels welcomed and delighted to sit at the table.
Katelynn grew up in a small Midwest town where choosing to pursue a career in event planning was a stretch of one’s imagination. Instead, she was encouraged to take a safer, more-well-known path studying graphic design as a fallback plan. Katelynn’s rule-following-self did just that but, after two years in design school, she packed her bags, boarded a train, and headed to complete her studies in Event Management.
For over a decade, Katelynn’s career has taken her coast-to-coast working alongside many top planners in the country. In 2017, she joined the Jacin Fitzgerald Events team as an on-site
assistant and since then has worked through all facets of the business to become the Director of Events. Katelynn is known for her innate ability to manage all of the nuanced, logistical details that make each event unique to each client, all without skipping a beat. She is known by clients and team members alike for providing memorable moments of service to all who come in contact with her, while keeping everything right on schedule.
Outside of work, Katelynn enjoys trying new recipes and spending quality time with her husband, Kevin, and Cavapoochon, Rainbow Rowe.
Growing up working for her family’s hardware store within a family of entrepreneurs instilled Jacin with a strong work ethic (and good handshake) from a young age. Jacin got her start in the events industry working for a seaside event venue in 2003 and after gaining extensive global experience in all facets of events, from marketing, management, and strategy, to production, design, and florals, went on to launch her own company in 2009. Since then, Jacin Fitzgerald Events has landed a coveted spot year after year on the elite “world’s top planner” lists, with work regularly spotted in publications such as Town & Country, The New York Times, Vogue, and Martha Stewart, to name a few.
A self-proclaimed “laid back type A”, Jacin thrives under pressure and is known for her effervescent personality and optimistic outlook. Jacin works diligently to make sure her clients, team, vendor partners and anyone in her presence feels taken care of, appreciated, and welcomed.
When not working, Jacin enjoys exploring the nearest farmers market, hosting dinner parties and spending quality time with her husband, Pat, and Australian Shepherds, Rhody and Blue.
At Jacin Fitzgerald Events, our years of multifaceted event experience is the foundation to the seamless planning process we have tailored for our clients, the majority of whom are very private, making us experts in discretion (and NDAs). Throughout this process, we explore every thought, need, and want, weighing and considering each detail to build a completely one-of-a-kind event that truly reflects each client. Mentioned as the “best in the biz”, our design plans are detailed and thoughtfully composed, visualizing everything from the linens to the location and everything in between. We believe logistics and design go hand in hand and guide our clients every step of the way to ensure no stone is left unturned.
We show up every day committed to outdo ourselves and are endlessly driven to make each event the best one yet. We feel so lucky to call this our job and are forever grateful to our clients for trusting us to walk alongside them in their journey.
Many thanks to the following photographers whose work we have included throughout the site. Without their talents we would have no way to showcase our work and we are forever thankful for their partnership.
