Perfectly Posh Events is an award-winning team of wedding planners and event designers based out of Seattle and Portland who are design savvy, detail oriented and passionate about planning. We love timeless styles with a fresh-twist, champagne + macarons, and creating distinctive celebrations that combine sophisticated designs with personalized details.
Why Choose Us?
We are passionate about creating memorable events that are a true reflection of each of our couples. Our wedding planners love being creative with event designs but it’s the people and personal details that are the most important thing to us. We believe in creating a guest experience that feels effortless with impeccable service and genuine hospitality.
We value quality over quantity, which means that we take a limited number of weddings and each planner focuses on only one wedding per weekend.
We believe that more heads are better than one, which is why we have created a “team-approach to wedding planning” that gives you access to an extensive knowledge base and creative think-tank. When our team of planners collaborate, we are able to produce more creative ideas, establish the best vendor teams, and troubleshoot before the big day based off our collective wedding planning experiences.
We place a significance on work/life balance. Each wedding planner takes at least one weekend off per month to allow time to relax, recharge, and enjoy the brief Pacific Northwest sunshine during our busy summer wedding season. As a result, your wedding planner will be rested + ready for your wedding even if you are getting married in the middle of August!
We have been recognized in our industry as Award-Winning Wedding Planners by both our colleagues and past clients. Our team is honored to have received the prestigious awards of “Best Wedding Coordinator” in 2018, “Best Wedding Planner” in 2016, 2015 and 2014 along with “Best All-Around Wedding Vendor” in 2015 from Seattle Bride Magazine in addition to numerous local and national accolades.

Having grown up in the Seattle wedding and event industry with a family business, I was fortunate to attend amazing events that inspired a passion for wedding planning at an early age. In order to turn my passion into a reality, I earned a BA in Business from Seattle Pacific University and spent over six years working for various companies in the event and wedding industry. After continuing my education by studying event design, I launched Perfectly Posh Events to provide wedding planning to the sophisticated and city chic brides in the Pacific Northwest. I have been working exclusively with weddings for the past nine years and absolutely love it!!!
A Seattle native, I love starting the morning off with a dry almond cappuccino and ending the day with a glass of red wine from one of the local Washington wineries. A lifelong Seahawks fan, I love football season and spending Sundays cheering on my home team! I adore shoes and can frequently be seen running around events in a pair of amazing heels that color-coordinate with the event theme. My free time is spent volunteering on the Board for Get Hitched Give Hope.
Enough about me. It’s time to pour yourself a glass of bubbly and let the wedding planning begin…cheers!

Charleston, South Carolina is where I’m proud to call home. I always love going home every now and then to get my dose of cobblestone roads, sandy beaches, and amazing Lowcountry Cuisine. As much as I love Charleston, I also love to travel and explore new places. I ventured across the country to gain more experience in the event industry working in Boulder, Colorado in the events department at a major hotel and in Los Angeles, California working as a coordinator for a high-end catering company. After I decided to settle down in the beautiful PNW, I began working with Perfectly Posh Events as a Senior Wedding Planner in 2014 and am honored to lead the expansion for our Portland location in 2017! When I am unplugged from wedding planning, I am typically trying new restaurants, enjoying wine country, or going on a hike with my better half.
There are many reasons why I love being a wedding planner. Not only do I get to meet some amazing couples who have such great ideas and impeccable taste, but I also get the chance to be creative and see these great ideas come to fruition! Contributing to one of the most important and happiest moment of someone’s life is priceless. My favorite part of any wedding is seeing my couple’s reactions when they see the venue completed with their design. I like to think my calm and hospitable personality on a wedding day lets my couples and their guests know that everything is taken care of so they can relax and enjoy the wedding day.

Born and raised in North Carolina (go Tarheels!), I moved to Los Angeles after graduating college. I taught high school chemistry and in my spare time, I discovered the lovely beaches, the vast shopping and the delicious food of LA. After we got engaged, my now-husband and I moved to Seattle, his hometown, in 2010. Here, we settled into life in the great PNW and planned the wedding of our dreams. We still spend our spare time discovering the wonderful food and eclectic shopping here, but instead of beaches we enjoy taking hikes.
I absolutely adore weddings! I love how each wedding is different and reflects the love of the bride and groom. As a wedding coordinator, I enjoy putting my stylish eye together with my attention to detail to help couples realize their perfect wedding day. This means couples can truly enjoy their wedding day with their loved ones while I take care of all the behind-the-scenes details!

My family and I reside in beautiful Kirkland, WA. My husband, Brandon, works in the tech industry, my son Phillip (3), loves riding his bike and playing with his trains, and my newborn daughter, Robin, loves having stories read to her and nap time. On a typical weekday, you would catch me at the park or in the kitchen. I love cooking, and even more eating tasty food! The kitchen is my creative space where I try new things. My current culinary challenge is lemon and chocolate French Macarons!
One of my favorite aspects of wedding planning is the design! I love creating beautiful spaces for couples. I believe that it’s important for family and friends to be surrounded by, not only a beautiful couple, but a beautiful atmosphere on such a special day. It adds a level of “completeness” that ties everything together. I love being able to help couples achieve a beautiful atmosphere on their special day by taking care of all the details and logistics of creating their vision!

I am the youngest of three daughters and my family is a bunch of loud, Greek people with whom I love to spend my time. I would describe my personal style as chic and modern, but I also like to be comfy-cute. My favorite color is purple (go dawgs!) and I love playing basketball, canoeing, going to football games, drawing, and binge watching shows on Netflix. My current obsession is cross-stitching!
I have been planning my wedding since the day I was old enough to know what a wedding was. Planning events has always been my passion, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized that I could turn that dream into a reality! Hands down, the best part of a wedding is when the bride walks down the aisle. I know that’s probably the most cliché answer I could have had, but there’s so much anticipation and excitement regarding that special moment. Not to mention, snagging a look at the groom’s face as he watches his future wife walk towards him will make your heart melt.

Having grown up in the PNW, Seattle is home – although my heart is divided between the evergreen mountaintops and the quaint sailing town of Annapolis where I’ve lived for the past several years. After pursuing Nursing my career took a complete 180 when I discovered my love for gathering friends, minor obsession with organizing details, and creative spirit could set me on a new career path. When I am not planning events or sprawled across the living room curating my next design – I can frequently be found exploring a hiking trail with my daughter Anna Katharine and our pup Collins, seeking out the best cappuccino and chocolate croissant in the city, digging in the garden, or gathering friends and family.
There is something so enchanting about weddings, I love to bring my clients vision to life and take care of all the details so they can truly enjoy every moment of their day. There is nothing quite like the rush of gratitude you feel when you see a couples face light up after they see everything come together and celebrate with their families. It is a constant reminder of what an honor planning events is, helping others enjoy some of their most special moments.
