Planner + Designer + Owner
Hello! I'm Stefanie - Owner & Planner Extraordinaire.
I am all about making beautiful memories, creating unique, personalized experiences, and enjoying the creative process.
After being drawn to event planning in every job I've ever had since I was fifteen I launched Forever Events in 2007, and over the years I have been able to turn my knack for details and my passion for creating inspired experiences into an exciting and fulfilling career in the events industry. Whether it’s a celebrity charity auction, a million-dollar fundraising gala, or a lush and romantic wedding weekend, I enjoy working with my clients to build their signature event experience, and I have had the privilege of meeting many amazing couples and clients over the years.
I'm the friend who goes over the top with gifts because that's my love language, and the hostess who will turn a random get together into a themed party complete with coordinated costumes and signature cocktails. I have a huge sweet tooth, I'm a little bit "woo" (think sage, candles and crystals,) I love the ocean, and I'm a sucker for hound dogs.
I have a passion for parties and an expertise in events and I would love to bring your wedding or special event vision to life, and help you make memories that will last Forever.
A few fun facts
-I love being a boy mom! My husband and I welcomed baby boy #2 to our family in December of 2020, and we are having so much fun enjoying our two beautiful boys.
-I love the sun! I moved to Washington in 2009 after living in Southern California for over ten years. Born & raised in Las Vegas, I am a desert girl at heart and soak up the elusive PNW sun whenever I get the chance.
-I believe in advocacy! As a member of the BIPOC community and an autism mom I am a strong believer in the importance of diversity and inclusion. I support equity for all including racial and cultural minorities, size inclusion, LGBTQ+, and the disabilities community.
-I love animals! As a family we enjoy taking our beagle Cooper to the dog park, and supporting animal focused charities like Seattle Beagle Rescue.
-I love Halloween! It is definitely my favorite holiday, and I spend most of October volunteering for a charity haunted house and transforming my own home into a full blown walk through haunt.
