At "Catherine's Wedding and Event Planning Services" we can make your special day wishes and dreams become a believable reality!

Hello my name is Catherine Knapp and I am the owner of "Catherine's Wedding and Event Planning Services". I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I decided to become a wedding and event planner because I wanted to help make peoples wishes and dreams come true. I have always been the go to person when someone wanted to plan an event or a party. Whether it was for birthdays, showers, christenings, graduations, holiday's or just social get togethers. I was nominated as head committee leader numerous times to organize several get togethers and class reunions.

I love taking ideas and making them into reality, then sitting back and watching everything unfold. Seeing the happiness and gratitude on the faces of the people for me was always priceless.

Before entering into this field my background was in administrative support and accounting. I wanted to take planning courses to further my skills, but looking back I realized it was something I really had a passion for and wanted to do. So I decided to get my certification. I attended the QC Career School for International Wedding and Event Planning, and here I am.


At "Catherine's Wedding and Event Planning Services" I want to make all your wishes and dreams for your special day a believable reality. I want to give you something that you, your family and friends will always remember. Whether it's a wedding or a special event. I cover the Chicagoland and surrounding suburbs throughout the Illinois area.

I can offer you advice, give you guidance, and personally assist you in making your wedding day or special event everything you have dreamed of, and much more. From the day you decide to propose to the day you say “I Do”. I can save you time and money, and take away the stress of planning. I can even help you with your honeymoon if need be. All you have to do is sit back and relax and watch as your wishes and dreams unfold!

I also offer services for when the party is over. Like sending out thank you notes to the guests and vendors. And also helping you decide on what to do with your dress.


OMG - Catherine's Wedding and Event Planning Services - made our dream come true. Our wedding was all that we wished for and so much more. Cathy even helped us plan our honeymoon. She took care of our plane tickets, hotel and even our meals. Thank you so much for doing such a terrific job.


We are so thankful for finding Catherine's Wedding and Event Planning Services. We were running out of time and were on tight budget -we never thought we would be able to get everything done. But thanks to Cathy we were able to make it happen and still stay within our budget. She found us a beautiful venue that was all inclusive. We even had money left over to take on our honeymoon. We would definitely use her again for our next event.
