Hi there! I'm Kari. An event/wedding planner, designer + photographer from a small midwest town pursuing my dreams in the city of angels. I love people, being a part of their story + going through seasons of life with my clients. Seeing people at their happiest makes my heart beat + keeps me motivated to keep going after my dreams. I started this business because I wanted to spend my time doing what I loved most, being around people + being able to create moments + design spaces that leave a mark in people's lives. So let's be friends, grab a coffee or a cocktail and dig into the details to make your dream event or wedding come true.
I always wanted to be a photographer, but also always had a knack for event planning + to be honest, I sorta fell into wedding planning. Although I still do photography, planning + designing weddings + events is my jam. After a trip to Haiti in 2014, I decided that my business had to do good for others and not just my clients and I. So with every client I work with, I donate a portion of my profits back to a nonprofit partner of mine or one that is close to your heart. I believe that business should impact and change the world for the better, so why not do that together.
Generosity Water: My goal is to build a water well for a community of people with my clients.
ServeHAITI: helping the people of Grand-Bois live a better life and to provide resources for them to be self-sustaining. They receive help and resources through the local medical clinic and some people walk miles and miles just to get there.
Good City Mentors: Provides inspiring mentorship for high school youth most at-risk of falling off track, positively impacting student engagement, achievement, and graduation rates.
Two Wings: They help educate victims of sex-trafficking. Let's be a part of the solution to end this slavery.

We know each couple has a different + unique story to tell and want their wedding to be their own. That's why we don't like putting everyone in the same box. We want to sit down and get to know you and your fiancé over a cup of coffee or a cocktail and help bring YOUR vision to life. We offer basic planning, partial planning, and full service planning, but these can all be customized to your specific needs, so don't worry! Need more help with design? We got you! Stressing about logistics? Check. Need someone to answer all the questions from your mother and mother-in-law? Let's do this. Simply put, we are with you every step of the way to make the process easier and hopefully fun!

I'm a natural light + outdoor photographer. I love capturing people in their element and who they are. I truly believe we all have a story to tell and a photograph is worth a thousand words. I want to capture your unique beauty. I don't believe in photoshopping and altering photos, because it's not who you are. I edit my photos to enhance your qualities and your beautiful self as you are. I shoot portraits, couples, family sessions, events and love to travel with nonprofit organizations to tell a story through humanitarian photography. Let's capture you and tell your story.
