Meet Kate

Located in the heart of the Napa Valley, St. Helena is Kate’s hometown. It is said to be by many, “One of the most romantic small towns in the nation, perhaps, even the world.” Kate grew up here with the tradition of hospitality. Her family has owned and operated the successful Wine County Inn for over thirty-five years. “My father believed in romance he would take my mother on romantic holidays to the east coast where he dicovered the “romance of the Country Inn”. Year’s later he would decide to put his wife and kids to work buliding one of his own. I was in high school when we built this place.  I have been helping people realize their romantic dreams ever since I was a kid and I still love it!”

Kate’s philosophy is simple: create magical events that will be remembered and cherished for a lifetime, while providing excellent personal service to every client. Knowing the importance of having great professional vendors to work with, Kate has put together an extensive and impressive group of local and regional talent. They are ready to help make your Wine Country Event exceptional. “I have spent a life time getting to know Napa Valley: where the best places are, the most enjoyable activities, the dynamic personalities of the business owners, wine makers and craftsman that call this place home. They are my neighbors and my friends. I live in this beautiful place because I love it and I would like to share what I know with you!”

Kate is an artist, designer, coordinator, gourmet cook, wine lover, nondenominational Minister, and entrepreneurial businesswoman. She has been organizing and planning weddings for over 16 years.
