Don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong — Ella Fitzgerald

The key to an event well-done is to make clients blissfully happy. And believe it or not, I am lucky enough to say that is my job - literally, my job is to make you happy! I'm here to help find homes for all those juggling balls in the air, to check off that sometimes daunting to-do list, and give you peace of mind that your special day will be everything you dreamed of and more. 

ABOUT

My friends call me Caitie and I am what some may call an event connoisseur. My background is in luxury which has allowed me to create, design, and produce over 300 events while working for some of fashions most distinguished design houses, including Dior, Valentino, and Versace. 

HELLO

But after nearly ten years in the fast lane of NYC, I kicked off my Manolo's and bee-lined back to my home state of Maryland where I launched my company, Betty Lou Events, a brand that specializes in planning and design. As a planner at heart with a touch of organization obsession, I have an eye for the details and an inner strive for perfection. My sure-fire technique of wit, charm, and humor always delivers my clients a pleasant and unforgettable experience. So on that note and in the wise words of P!nk, let's get this party started!

I've had the pleasure of knowing Caitie both as a friend and as an event planner. As a friend, she is incredibly fun, honest, and has an amazing sense of humor — qualities, it turns out, which are invaluable for an event planner. She’ll be candid about budget expectations but always, always puts your needs first.

When the stress gets to you, leave it to Caitie to keep you laughing. But don't mistake her lightheartedness for a lack of professionalism. She is always on top of it, and so fierce when it comes to fighting for exactly what you want for your event. There's a reason that our 115 person event went off with absolutely ZERO hiccups and that's because of Caitie's relentless efforts, creativity, and attention to minute details.

Our engagement party also had several cultural and religious requests to take into consideration (and a few last-minute hurdles to overcome) which Caitie navigated with aplomb, learning as she needed to and never leaving us feeling overwhelmed or concerned.

Not to mention, the girl is CHIC. When you’re not asking for her advice on the perfect tablescape, you'll be texting to ask where she got her outfit or how she DIY’ed her home office. And it doesn't hurt dog is adorable too!


Ali, 2018

Given Caitie’s background in luxury events for some of the most recognized brands, you may be wondering if she’s the best person to plan a smaller, low-key event. I’m happy to say she absolutely is. I didn’t have too much of a vision; I said I wanted classy but low-key and Caitie somehow turned that into a beautiful reality.

From rentals to designing the entire invitation, Caitie took care of every single aspect of my event and made it look easy. It went off without a hitch and I’m sure that would not have been the case if I were doing it on my own.

If you’re on the fence about hiring a planner for your event, one meeting with Caitie will win you over. Even in just the first few minutes of meeting her, you will see that she genuinely loves what she does, and will only be happy if she can make you happy with your event. 

Richard, 2018

Over the last 4 years starting with Dior, then Valentino and finally Versace, Cait has brought me along to work with her during her rise through these esteemed fashion houses.

In these high profile and high pressured environments, it was always a pleasure to walk in and be greeted by her smiling face and positive energy. Prior to the shoot, she was always crystal clear in her communication with me and then during the shoot was always accessible if I needed to consult with her.

Having also shot many weddings I would say the key to being a successful planner is not only an attention to detail along with anticipating any problems but most importantly it's about possessing the right personality. This is what makes Cait stand out in my mind.

The best planners treat not only the clients and the guests in a calm and courteous way but everyone else who is there to make the event successful.


Meghan, 2018

Caitie and her team at Betty Lou Events are absolutely incredible. I hired Caitie at the last minute after working with another Baltimore planner for over a year and feeling completely overwhelmed and alone in the wedding planning process. Within a matter of a day, Caitie made an on-site visit at my venue happen and drafted a vision board for my wedding that was exactly what I described to her, but better. She worked seamlessly with the great vendors I had already hired and brought additional amazing vendors in. She was responsive, hilarious, and made the planning process SO much fun despite our very limited TIME FRAME.

Caitie was with me the entire day of the wedding and couldn’t have ran a more flawless event. My reception venue ended up being more beautiful than I could have ever imagined thanks to her impeccable eye for design. She went above and beyond in every way imaginable and I could never thank her enough for designing and executing the day of my dreams. 

To any brides looking for an amazing planner, stop right now and call Caitie. She will go above and beyond to ensure you have the best day of your life and added bonus, you’ll gain a friend in the process.
