Meet the Planners {Kara}


What made you want to become a wedding planner? I became interested in becoming a wedding planner after planning my own wedding. It’s so much fun to see a vision come together!

What is your favorite part of the job? Seeing the love, joy and happiness in the room. It’s such an honor to be apart of a family’s special day.

Tell us about one of your favorite weddings you’ve worked on or a funny story from a wedding. Anytime you have young flower girls or ring-bearers it seems to be a funny moment during the wedding. I’ve seen a 2 year old flower girl refuse to walk down the aisle as she was half way down it. She just sat right down in the middle of the aisle and the bride had to walk around her. It was actually really cute.

What is your background? Outside of Simply Elegant, I am the Director of a nonprofit in St Paul that supports families who have children that are receiving medical treatment in the Twin Cities.

What do you like to do in your free time? In my free time I love to travel (15 countries and counting), scrapbook, send snail mail, go to concerts and sporting events, also hang with my husband and pets!

What are a few fun facts about you? In 2007, I almost became David Letterman’s nanny and even had an interview at his house! And I’m afraid of birds.
