MEET THE TEAM
OWNER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Growing up working for her family’s hardware store on a quintessential town green in Guilford, Connecticut, Jacin was organically instilled with a strong work ethic from a young age. Jacin got her start in the events industry working for a seaside event venue in 2003 and after gaining extensive work experience and saying “yes” to opportunities across the United States and abroad, went on to launch her own event planning company in 2009. Since then Jacin, along with her incredible team, has flawlessly executed events across the globe, from high end private parties (ask us about the Super Bowl or the time we safely relocated alligators from a cocktail hour pond) to corporate incentive trips, to social events and full wedding weekend celebrations. Jacin’s strong reputation has landed her a spot year after year on the highly coveted and elite “top planner” lists, and she has worked effervescently and optimistically to ensure this reputation continues to exceed expectations.
All of this aside, “pretentious” continues to be Jacin’s least favorite word and when not working, she enjoys exploring her neighborhood farmers market in Atlanta, cooking or canning in the kitchen, traveling with her husband Pat, and spending quality time with friends and family (and her two Australian shepherds, Rhody and Blue).
LOGISTICAL GURU + DIRECTOR OF EVENTS
Katelynn grew up in a small Midwest town where choosing to pursue a career in wedding planning was a stretch of ones imagination. Instead, she was encouraged to take a safer, more well known path studying graphic design as a fallback plan. Katelynn’s rule-following-self did just that and after two years of design school she packed her bags, boarded a train (yes, train!) and headed to the University of Central Florida to study Event Management.
For over a decade, Katelynn’s career has taken her coast-to-coast working alongside the top planners in the country. In 2017, she joined the Jacin Fitzgerald Events’ team as an on-site assistant and since then, has worked through all facets of the business to become the Director of Events. Katelynn is known for her innate ability to manage all of the nuanced, logistical details that make each event unique to each client, all without skipping a beat. She is known by clients and team members alike for providing memorable moments of service to all who come in contact with her, while keeping everything right on schedule.
We take great pride in being able to give our clients a seamless and enjoyable planning experience from start to finish, an “experience” that we have tailored through the years to meet the needs of our busy clients. Our boutique approach is not meant for mass event production, and instead we limit the number of events we take on per year to provide each client with the highest level of service.
At Jacin Fitzgerald Events, we treat each event with discretion and have worked with the most discerning of clients. Our word-of-mouth reputation precedes us for our ability to create a pristine experience from start to finish and we are revered for pushing our imaginations to create epic events which exceed even the expectations those who have “seen it all”. All in all, we absolutely love what we do and never take for granted those who trust us to bring their dreams to life, time and time again.
We are so honored to be included in Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides Magazine and Southern Living Magazine’s elite lists of top wedding planners and are also proud to have our work published in Martha Stewart Weddings along with Town & Country, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Brides, The Knot, and several other prints and online publications. All accolades aside, though, we absolutely and truly believe that life is too short not to chase your dreams, inspiration can be found everywhere if you truly take a moment to look around and soak it all in, and true happiness is enjoyed most when shared with others.
