Nice to meet you!

Krista Burroughs ~ Owner & Lead Planner

Hello!  I'm so happy you're here!

My passion for Event Planning blossomed nearly 25 years ago and started with planning special events for my family and friends.  In 2010, I decided it was time to really jump in head first to turn my passion into a business and I've never looked back!

With the unwavering support of some really amazing friends and mentors, I've been able to accomplish so many incredible business milestones and now have an expansive resume of event planning experience that includes: Non-Profit Fundraisers, Extravagant Personal Celebrations and over nearly 200 Weddings!

Some fun facts about me:

  • I'm an Air Force Brat ... born in Germany and grew up in Las Vegas

  • I'm a mom to three humans (17, 26 & 29) and a sweet fluffy rescue pup (9)

  • I have a deep-rooted love for Country music and am a total concert junkie!

  • Wine and Whiskey are always well-stocked in my home bar

  • At the beach or on a boat are my happy places ... vacation please!

  • Chocolate is my kryptonite

  • I spent 3 months studying abroad in Italy my senior year of college

  • I was a Landscape Designer/Planner in a former life

  • My favorite Rom Com:  50 First Dates {no explanation needed!}
