Event planner Esther Katz is renowned among her clients for her tremendous dedication and energy in producing singular experiences from top to bottom to last a lifetime. Katz plans and manages occasions from weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs to engagement and anniversary parties, and charity dinners in Bergen County, Manhattan and Westchester.

Katz, founder of Extraordinary Events by Esther, manages all aspects of an event with careful adherence to her clients’ needs. She knows the ins and outs of all facets of an event to make for a remarkable experience. With her extensive experience in catering and floral design and her relationships with vendors, Katz has an extra edge as a thoroughly knowledgeable event and party planner.

She works tirelessly to make sure that all aspects of the planning process—from choosing and overseeing the venue to finding the best caterers, floral arrangers and entertainment to lighting and photography, are arranged with meticulous detail.

Katz is more than just a third party to a special occasion. Her tireless dedication in acclimating herself with her clients ensures that momentous events are accommodated to families’ visions. She is a key asset for both those who have everything already planned to families who haven’t the slightest idea where to start. Katz is there to help kick-start the creative process. Just tell her even a couple of thoughts of how the event can play out and she can say exactly what she can create to turn those into splendid reality.

“Bringing my exclusive clientele joy and happiness is foremost,” Katz said. “It’s my mission to plan and present, to take the stress away from them and make their day so much better. They’re the Number 1 guest at their event.”

Katz is especially known for her exceptional, creative floral designs, bringing events to life with vibrant colors expertly arranged to contribute to both scenery and atmosphere.

Her dedication to perfect events extends to when she’s a guest. While attending events, Katz keeps a keen eye to ensure that everything is going to plan. As a guest at a wedding she noticed that flowers had fallen from the chuppah. “I said to the photographer, ‘Get your ladder and let’s fix this.’”

Testimonials about Katz’s work include one mother saying that she transformed a hotel ballroom for her daughter’s wedding
into a “magical wonderland.” Another great moment occurred when the father of a bride called Katz the morning after the wedding and said, “I didn’t realize the most important person at my daughter’s wedding was going to be the florist.”

“We are so happy to have Esther help us with our smachot,” commented client Gila Stone. “Wedding planning is always hectic and filled with anxiety but Esther provides an oasis of calm throughout the process. With a background in floral design and an eye for detail, Esther allows hosts to truly celebrate and enjoy the simcha. She treats each event as if it is her own family simcha and is sensitive to budget without sacrificing the design details that are important in making every event enjoyable and memorable.”

“Life events are huge, meaningful occasions to be remembered,” Katz said. “I’m a people person at heart. I love events, celebrations and styling all elements of parties. I naturally gravitate toward my work, in which I take the utmost pride in making everyone feel special. It’s not a hobby. It’s a joy for me. If you love what you do, you have to do it.”
