how much does an event manager cost?

This depends on the type of assistance you need. My basic services start at $100 and move up from there. Shoot me an email if you have questions about a specific type of event

What areas do you serve?

Currently, Washington DC, New York and Orange County are the easiest areas to service. Other areas require a bit more discussion, but I am open to opportunities globally.

I just got engaged! do you plan weddings?

Congrats on your engagement! I LOVE weddings - however - I made a very conscious decision to not focus on weddings.  My expertise is logistics and experience design. If you need a wedding planner, I vet options for clients free of charge - just shoot me an email with your options and questions and I can give you my best advice on choosing a planner! 
* Exception: I am accepting destination wedding clients for guests under 100.

"Paterson is an incredible party planner! She’s like the cool aunt who’s been everywhere and knows all the tips and tricks for where to go and what to see. She has an eye for details and thinks everything through down to the smallest details. I also learned so much from working with her - she's the somilier of event and logistics. I wouldn’t plan a party without her! "
