Hello there! My name is MaKenna Stevens, and I am delighted that you’re here. I am a young and innovative person with a fierce love for soft pretzels, organized closets, beautiful dresses that bring out beautiful personalities, and—most of all—weddings. A certified wedding and event planner, I am here to help orchestrate the crazy process that is planning any event.
I didn’t always know I wanted to be a professional planner…but I’ve always been one. A favorite story my parents like to tell is how I planned a surprise anniversary party for them when I was eight years old. I contacted all of my relatives from my little address book, told them the time and day to show up, and what dish to bring. I got a ride to the Dollar Store to pick up decorations, baked a cake with a family friend, and--on the day of the party--I found an excuse to get my parents out of the house to make the magic happen. The result was an exciting evening of family and friends celebrating with my very surprised parents.
Since then my zeal for planning, list-making, organizing, and coming up with creative ideas has only continued to develop, along with a special knack for problem-solving. Once I realized wedding and event planning was a full-time profession, I was sold--and thoroughly in love! And having had experience in cake-decorating, catering, clothing design and tailoring, flower arranging, event décor and day-of coordinating, I couldn’t ask for a better pass-time.
