GOING ABOVE & BEYOND

Erika DeWitt – Owner and Lead Planner, Catskills Concierge

The inspiration for Erika’s small American business began in 2014; as a result of helping friends and family with their wedding day.

Erika has worked as the Special Events Manager at the well-known Windham Mountain Resort (Ski, Bike & Golf).

For over 10 years+ she’s been planning:

  • mountain top ceremonies
  • music festivals
  • yoga retreats
  • large scale mountain bike events
  • ski races

Catskills Concierge is the culmination of being a local expert, as well as an outdoor enthusiast, who just so happens to love planning parties!

Her vast experience allows her to easily manage a ton of little details and moving parts – leading up to the big day, as well as during the event itself.

Highly recommend! Erika D was amazing.

Erika DeWitt was our day-of coordinator, and she saved the days in more ways than I can count. She decorated the venue perfectly with what we wanted. She dealt with all our vendors, made our day-of timeline, and made our wedding day incredibly easy. She’s kind, responsive, and knows her stuff! HIGHLY recommend Erika for your wedding day :)

Stress Free Wedding

Erika was amazing: she made our special day so much less stressful and helped create such a memorable evening. We were on the fence about a coordinator since our venue came with staff and we had already done most of the planning. We’re so glad we made the decision; it was the single best choice we made in the months/weeks leading up the wedding. Just having someone on top of all the logistics and to be there solely for us, to make our day easier and more amazing, was invaluable. We can’t recommend Erika more!

WOW Thank goodness for Erika

Erika was an absolute life saver. She worked with us throughout the whole process providing excellent ideas and feedback. Having Erika as our Day of Coordinator was 100% the BEST decision we made. This was our 2nd wedding in 5 months. I can find the words to describe everything that she did. She had everything looking beautiful and she did not stop working the entire time. Attentive to every detail and helping to make our vision come true. I would recommend Erika to any Bride to Be that asks. She was wonderful!!!

Kate , Married on 10/07/2018

Excellent working with Erika, very professional, competent and good at problem solving. Had some great last minute ideas that were game changers (like heating the tent on our unexpectedly chilly evening!). Would definitely recommend her.
