About Madrigal Event Design & Coordinating...​

Meet Kate...

Hello! I am Kate, owner and lead event designer and coordinator at Madrigal Event Design.  I am a wife and mom living with my family in the Chicago suburbs.  I love all things special events, decor, floral and detail, and I'm a HUGE Disney fan, so let's just say, I ensure there's a little bit of "Pixie Dust" sprinkled into each special day to make it magical! 

​With over 15 years experience, I started Madrigal Event Design with the goal of giving my clients a personal and enjoyable event planning experience.  Planning and hosting an event is a lot of work, and can we say, STRESSFUL? There are so many elements that make for a memorable event, that can make the planning process overwhelming.  That's why I work endlessly to make the planning process as stress-free as I can from start to finish. Many times planning with you over coffee, or on occasion, a glass of wine. ;) Being a part of such a special moment in your life isn't something I take lightly.  

Myself and the team (of mostly women owned businesses) I work with, pride ourselves on good communication, attention to detail and building a personal, yet professional relationship with our clients.  Not only is your event success my priority, but you and your guests are as well. 

Myself, my team and the businesses we partner with are Proud to Service EVERYONE.

“You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it requires people to make the dream a reality.”        -Walt Disney


We're honored for the opportunity to be a part of your magical day. We look forward to celebrating with you during your next special event!
