Meet Karissa


From intimate brunches to elegant weddings, planning every detail is Karissa's passion. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies from Minnesota State Univeristy Moorhead (Go Dragons!), she moved to Minneapolis, MN and worked for Amy Zaroff Events + Design. It was because of her opportunity to learn from Amy and her outstanding team that she discovered the kind of planner she wanted to be.

She then received the opportunity to return home to Williston, ND to be the first Executive Director for the Williston Downtowners Association. In her time there she worked to grow the downtown district, assisted the board in becoming an official non-profit, and implemented new events to bring businesses and community together.

Always seeking more opportunities for growth, a few years later she transitioned to the Student Life Coordinator position at Williston State College.

It was during her time spent there that she decided to fulfill a niche and begin her own event planning company. With over 6 years of experience, events are truly her passion.

"Hello there! I would love to work with you to plan your event! I have planned high-end events in Minneapolis and Iowa as well as regional events within a variety of budgets. Weddings are my favorite but I also love planning showers, brunches, and graduation parties.

I want you to enjoy the process so let me handle all of the little details: contacting vendors, finalizing bookings, managing your budget, creating timelines, plus much more. Leave your stress with me so you can be a guest at your own event!"

Please reach out to Karissa with any questions or quote requests. She looks forward to meeting you soon!
