Our inspiration begins with our clients, as we aim to capture their essences and transform their visions into settings that are beautiful, refined, and deeply personal. We believe that simplicity and elegance go hand in hand, so our eventscapes are always polished and our details are thoroughly considered – whether the gathering is contemporary, organic, whimsical, or somewhere in between. We are driven to crafting events that are fresh and incredibly stylish, with atmospheres that are perfectly warm and inviting.
We prioritize the organization of our events, and speak with tact, candor, and sensitivity when it comes to the critical elements of budgeting and scheduling. Our goal is to respect the boundaries of cost, without sacrificing a client’s wish list. Ultimately, we streamline the coordination and build trust, so that our clients can feel completely at ease during each stage of the planning process and wholeheartedly excited on their special day.
Owner + Principal
Since 2007, Kate has been delivering valued event expertise through her eponymous event company, Kate Fujimoto Event Design. Although originally focused on chic, intimate gatherings with fewer than 75 guests, Kate quickly expanded her offerings to encompass beautifully designed, larger-scale weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, galas, and other distinctive social occasions.
Kate’s aesthetic, which is a sophisticated fusion of classic and contemporary elements, has been shaped by her unique story. A native Angeleno with English and Japanese roots, Kate spent many years on the East Coast, studying at Brown University in Rhode Island and Parsons School of Design in New York. She subsequently worked in the esteemed fashion studios of Marc by Marc Jacobs and Betsey Johnson in New York City before returning to Los Angeles to launch her event business.
Caldwell, a nod to Kate’s grandmother who was the epitome of English grace and propriety, grew out of Kate’s desire to produce only the most exquisite, seamlessly crafted, and genuinely inspired events that will ultimately become part of a client’s own treasured history.
