Our Story

Katie has always had a passion for art and design. It was more than a year ago that Katie decided to marry her love for fashion, interior design, calligraphy, floral design, cake design, hair & makeup, DIY and culinary arts to become a wedding and event planner. Her passion for beautifully designed weddings and events, along with her love for vintage items make Katie's events stand out from the crowd. Katie is passionate about working with only the best in the industry and her beautiful work has been featured on countless distinguished blogs and websites. 

The name, Havenwood, was inspired by the name of Katie's family cabin, tucked away in the rugged Utah mountains in Sundance, Utah. Many of the antique pieces in Katie's work come right from Havenwood, where her grandfather instilled a love of character, charm, and the beauty in reclaiming old pieces. You'll see this inspiration shine in Katie's aesthetic of rustic wood, natural elements, and muted tones. With hundreds of original, one-of-a-kind pieces and an eye for natural beauty, Katie knows how to make an event memorable and impressionable. 

Katie's husband works as a talented carpenter for Havenwood, making anything she challenges him with. Together, they are the face of Havenwood Design.
