How Kate & Company Works Wedding Magic with Event Technology

In the world of hospitality, if one thing is constant, it’s change. So it comes as no surprise that Wedding Designer, Kate Turner of Kate & Company, finds no day is the same. Each offers something new and exciting, as her team delivers planning, brilliant design, and flawless execution from start to finish for every client. To consistently provide their superior service, Turner and her team of 18, complete with Wedding Designers, Event Producers, and event Wedding Day Specialists, turned to event technology.

Turner’s team is deep in the trenches every day, ensuring every T is crossed on contracts while customizing pitches for clients that will simply blow them away. “We’re often compared to an Interior Designer meets Concierge because our team works to handle every piece of our client’s events. Most days you can find us checking in with creative partners, checking items off our to-do lists, or working on a comprehensive, detailed design presentation (my last presentation was 150 pages long!) for a client,” shared Turner.

One way that the team at Kate & Company really sets themselves apart are their unique design service offerings. Rather than relying on their creative partners or a venue to create a floorplan, they believe in ensuring each and every event layout as unique as the to-be-married couple. From hollow tables that seat 100, to roundtables with trees “growing” through the center, to a 450-person event with 10 stations, each of their layouts reflects the style and aesthetic of the individual client. So, you’ll rarely see a design from them that includes anything standard.

In order to deliver these nuanced diagrams and innovative layouts, Turner knew her team needed to be able to diagram events quickly, and also be able to accommodate all sorts of one-of-a-kind designs.“We researched several companies that offer similar services and ultimately found Social Tables to be the best fit for us. At any given time we could be working on over 100 different layouts. Social Tables offerings and customer service are second to none and that’s why they are the best fit for Kate & Company and our family of businesses,” explained Turner.

Today, Turner’s team takes advantage of easy ways to manage attendees and uses Social Tables printable table reports to ensure accurate setup (pro tip!). Turner elaborated, “At Kate & Company we adore the ability to tag guest meal selections and seat them. I must say, our venue coordinators absolutely love when we can hand them a detailed packet outlining each and every guest’s dietary profile. We have found that utilizing this function makes both the personalized setup of each place setting, as well service throughout dinner, go much smoother than before utilizing Social Tables. It’s easier on us, our clients, and our event catering managers.”

Speaking of the perfect setup, this fall Kate & Company was working at a venue they work at often but faced a new challenge. While they were planning in a beautiful space — a big rectangle of a room with pillars in it — it’s often laid out exactly the same from event to event. And they knew that simply would not do! In Social Tables, Turner’s team was able to present their client with four incredibly unique layouts that have never been seen at the venue before. “From customized lounge vignettes to hanging tables to display food – this client will be wowed in our presentation, and again on their wedding day!” exclaimed Kate. And, with that personalized touch, Turner’s team has once again set themselves apart.

So it only makes sense that when we asked Kate what she’d tell someone who was on the fence about adopting event technology, she shared,

“I’d tell them that they’re totally off base! HAHA! No, for real, Social Tables can help elevate you, your business, and your design capabilities to the next level!”
