KRISTA ROSS  |  Owner & creative director

I discovered my passion for weddings and events while planning my own wedding five years ago. After studying art history in college, I struggled to find a career that inspired me and allowed me to channel my love of art and all things pretty, but from the moment I started planning I knew it was where I belonged. I am a hopeless romantic with a Type A personality, and it shows in everything I do. Profoundly personal, perfectly executed events are what I strive to provide all of my clients.

When I'm not planning events, you can find me exploring new restaurants with my husband, goofing off with my daughter, or lounging by the pool at our home away from home in Fort Myers, Florida. I love to cook and entertain family and friends. I consider popcorn and champagne a proper meal.


Before I knew I wanted to be an event planner my friends always referred to me as the “planner of the group”, so it is both funny and fitting that this is the path I ended up taking. I am a proud Minnesota Gopher who studied communications and design and found my love for event coordination while planning events for the University of Minnesota. After a few years planning non-profit events, I gained experience planning weddings and corporate events under a well-respected company in the Twin Cities. What I enjoy most about event planning is adding personal touches specific to each client.

When I am not planning events I can be found hiding everything in my apartment from my curious rescue kitten, watching “The Office” for the millionth time (because it will never get old), or exploring the city and Minneapolis restaurant scene.
