And since John grew up in Chicago, Katie explains, “It was nice to meet people who were important to him growing up, who were friends with his parents — and who are great people.”

Katie enjoyed the pre-wedding bash so much she’s ready for more! “I’m trying to convince as many people as I can to throw as many parties as they can,” Katie jokes to Closer. “You can never have too many pre-wedding celebrations!”

With the wedding only weeks away at New York’s tony Hamptons, Katie is prepping the final details of the intimate affair — including the wedding bling!
