Get to know the founder and lead planner and designer, Katharine: 

I had the privilege of growing up on Island Creek on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. There is so much inspiration from the beauty of the shore and I’ve always felt so at home here, especially on the water. I benefited from growing up working in restaurants – I experienced all front-of-house roles and supported the catering and events side of the businesses. I spent 12 years in the corporate world, honing my brand management and development, small to large-scale event planning, relationship building, and project planning skills.


“Katharine and Island Creek Events went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations with their exceptional event planning services. Right from the start, collaborating with Katharine was an absolute joy. Her communication skills were not just professional but made us feel genuinely informed and confident throughout the entire process. What truly made Katharine stand our what her incredible flexibility. When unexpected changes popped up, she handled them with poise and adaptability, demonstrating a level of professionalism that left a lasting impression on us. Our event’s success is all thanks to the dedication and expertise of Island Creek Events. Katharine’s confidence and meticulous attention to detail provided a sense of assurance, allowing us to relax and fully savor every moment of the occasion. Without hesitation, we wholeheartedly recommend Island Creek Events to anyone in search of an event planner who goes the extra mile to make every moment special.”

“Katharine is AMAZING! Our wedding would not have been possible without her. She worked so hard and knew every detail of our day. She made sure everything was perfect and that we were happy and able to enjoy ourselves. Katharine was extremely communicative and thoughtful and made sure to get to know all of our vendors throughout the planning process which was super helpful. Not only did Katharine put in a tremendous effort leading up to our wedding, but she even helped up resolve some issues after our wedding was over. We truly cannot recommend her enough! If I could give her 100 stars, I would. You can tell she truly cares about her clients and goes above and beyond without being asked.”

“Endless thanks and praise to Katharine and her team for making all of our wedding dreams come to life! She took our ideas and loose plan and created an amazing wedding weekend filled with wonderful memories – everything happened just perfectly, thanks to Katharine’s many months of diligent, proactive, professional, and thoughtful planning and guidance. We couldn’t be happier with how hard she worked on our wedding, she spent an immense amount of time and care on this special day (weekend) and truly pulled off a fabulous party. Everyone talks about what a fabulous party, amazing decorations, and scrumptious food they enjoyed. Thank you to Katharine and Island Creek Events for making our wedding a sparkling, spectacular celebration that began our new chapter as Mr. and Mrs! We will be forever bgrateful and appreciative of Katharine’s professionalism, expertise, and friendship – and will look forward to recommending her with exceptional accolades and words of exaltation!!! Your event is in the best hands with Katharine and her team!!”

“Our experience with Island Creek Events has been amazing! She took care of the decorations like a pro! She become a friend of our committee, and we formed an amazing professional relationship. Katherine helped make our events a big success, and took care of all the decorations for our grad school party. She has a keen eye for detail, and does her work diligently.”


Katharine was an absolute pleasure to work with. My wedding was supposed to be an outside tented beach wedding but when plan A and B had to be tossed out the window due to a tropical storm, Katharine stepped in to make our plan C come to life. She worked tirelessly behind the scene to make sure all of the vendors knew the revised plan, kept my husband and I calm and made sure everything ran as smoothly as could be. I cannot recommend Island Creek Events enough. Thank you for turning what could’ve been a disaster into the most beautiful and perfect day of our lives. We are forever grateful.
