Lead Event Planner
Hello! My name is Stephanie and I fell head over heels for the event industry while in a high school hospitality class and never looked back. My passion is this amazing industry and its never-ending creativity.
After receiving my Hospitality Management degree, I started my career planning events and meetings at one of the largest hotels in Texas, then moved into a Social Catering Manager role at a different hotel. As Catering Manager, I oversaw all weddings and social events for the hotel and worked with all sorts of backgrounds and cultures. After spending a few years in that role, I moved into a couple of different positions within corporate events where I booked, negotiated contracts, and planned large conferences for various companies. Being part of this industry for so many years gives me the unique experience of being able to see and understand both sides (venue and couple) fully.
Before I was a teenager, I was reading the instructions on how to fold cloth napkins from my mom’s Good Housekeeping cookbook. I wanted the Thanksgiving table to look just right. I am a true planner and organizer and enjoy digging deep for the perfect details. I know that embracing every day, every minute, every celebration, family, and friends is what truly makes a beautiful day. I know the importance of creating a unique experience for you and your guests and understand that the wedding planning process should be relaxing and enjoyable.
There is only one chance to plan the perfect once-in-a-lifetime wedding day. You will get a new friend, sounding board, wedding partner, and true professional.
When I am not working, I am most likely with my family and friends, watching a new Netflix series, or baking something sweet!
Lead Event Planner
Hi there, my name is Tzahhia (zai-ee-uh)! If you are wondering, “what kind of name is that?!” you are not alone. My name is indigenous to Mexico, and it means soul! Interestingly enough, I am the only lucky one in my family with a unique name that is difficult to pronounce (just kidding, I love how special my name is)!
I am excited for the opportunity to work with you to create a beautiful and unforgettable celebration. My experience in a variety of roles has helped me build a strong skill set. One thing that sets me apart as a planner is my ability to combine both the left brain and right. My background includes working for a hospitality company that owns several venues, which taught me the importance of communication and teamwork when working with vendors to make each event successful. On top of planning, I also have an interest in interior design and have experience at a remodeling business where the focus is on residential renovations. This has heightened my level of detail and I’ve learned to keep an open mind when it comes to style since no client is ever the same! A favorite part of event planning for me is coming up with a design board that is unique to our clients while simultaneously guiding them through the planning process with choices that reflect their respective tastes.
In my free time, I enjoy discovering new music; I always have Spotify running in the background! My husband and I love traveling, going to live music shows, and playing with our two dogs, Emmy and Luka!
I pride myself on establishing a relationship with you and making your celebration a reflection of your love story! I value the importance of adding personal touches to your big day so let’s do this your way because it’s those thoughtful details that make it different and memorable! So let’s meet, share ideas over some coffee, and get to know one another!
Lead Event Planner
Hello, I’m Sarah! It is incredibly fulfilling for me to see a uniquely crafted, and flawlessly executed event that our clients will look back at fondly for years to come.
Here’s a little bit more about my background: I received my Bachelors from Texas A&M University and Masters from Boston University. Upon graduation, I got a “big girl’ job in the corporate world working for a major retailer. It was not until a few years into the industry when I realized something had to give. I was looking for a new challenge and did some soul searching into what I was passionate about.
Little did I know that it was right in front of me! Event planning was something I had been doing on and off for over twelve years now and though it took me a while to make the transition, once I did, I plunged right in and never looked back!
I believe in truly getting to know people, taking note of the details, and encompassing your joys in life to create an event brimming with personal touches and charming details. My team and I work hard to ensure we deliver results with warmth and efficiency. Your event will be a very thoughtful affair as I spent half my life growing up in countries like Malaysia, Singapore, and China which has given me an immensely open perspective and different outlook. This has caused me to be very understanding of cultures and enjoy thinking outside the box.
Getting better in this role is something I consistently strive to do, so you will find me attending workshops, conferences, and taking classes to continuously improve.
When I am not working, you will find me cooking, reading, engrossed in a board game, or watching stand-up comedy. I also love spending time with my dogs and family!
Don’t be shy, drop me a line! I’m excited to meet you and look forward to helping you plan an unforgettable event.

Hello! My background is in fashion merchandising and there’s no bigger fashion moment than
your wedding day! When I was younger, I wanted to be the next Vera Wang. I would sketch my ideas for wedding dresses in a notebook!
Although I love the beautiful details of weddings, my strength as a planner lies in my analytical skills. In the retail world, I’ve worked in both
Buying and Planning/Allocation. A great deal of my job then revolved around timelines and meeting deadlines, which is so important to a successful event. I also worked with several different
teams, from marketing to logistics, as well as vendors, which made me an expert
Attention to detail, hard work, and a positive attitude help me set you up for a smooth and happy day!
Fun Fact: I love to practice yoga!

I’m so excited for the opportunity to work with you to make your wedding day extra special. I have a deep love for all things organization, lists, and outlines, leading to my passion for planning!
By day, I work in a pediatric hospital as a speech-language pathologist. My job entails attention to fine details, adjusting plans quickly, and working as a team. I strive to connect with every family I meet and support them through all highs and lows. I specialize in providing individualized care to fit the needs of each patient. Just as in providing care for patients, it truly takes a village to make a wedding day an unforgettable celebration.
My goal as a wedding planner is to connect with my clients and their families to attend to all their individual needs and bring their dreams to life. I will be your biggest advocate and support system throughout this exciting time. My positive attitude, attention to detail, and ability to adjust plans quickly will ensure that you enjoy every moment of your special day!

I’m so excited to meet you and looking forward to helping you create your beautiful day!

Hi there, I’m Hannah!
I’m excited about the opportunity to work with you to make your dream wedding as beautiful as you imagine it!
After completing my degree in Hospitality Management, I started my career planning and coordinating weddings for a company on the Seacoast of New Hampshire where I gained my eye for outdoor, quaint, natural, and unique wedding design. Several years later, I moved to Boston, MA where I worked for both large hotel brands and independent hotels as a Wedding and Event Manager. These positions gave me the knowledge and understanding of both corporate events and large weddings from the perspective of the venue rather than the outside planner which now allows me to bring my knowledge of the world of hospitality to every event I plan. At the beginning of 2022, I found myself ready to make one more move which landed me in Texas and working for Keestone! Do ya’ll know how hot it is here?!
When you work with me, you’ll get someone who is outgoing, direct, supportive, extremely organized, and has a true passion for weddings. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing my bride and groom surrounded by their friends and family on their wedding day after working so closely alongside them. I feel honored to be considered as your planner and trusted with one of your most special days!
In my free time you’ll find me trying out a new restaurant or coffee shop (all recommendations all welcomed), exploring a new walking trail with my pup, working out or working at Pure Barre, and spending time with my family and friends.
