Alli, our Lead Event Planner

Alli

Lead Event Planner

A “girly girl” who loves all things pink, sparkly and/or Disney, Alli caught the event planning “bug" at a very young age, planning all her birthday parties and even an occasional Halloween party. Whether decorating for the holidays or parties, styling outfits or costumes, or even remodeling a kitchen, Alli’s creative eye, organized and detailed demeanor and astute decision making skills make her right up your “Alli.”

 

Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, she moved to Colorado in 2009 to attend Colorado State University, where she earned a Performing Arts degree in costume design. After graduation, she loved the autumn weather too much to leave! Alli went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Arts Development and Program Management from the University of Denver. While researching her thesis entitled, “A Wedding Planner’s Skills: Gay or Nay?,” Alli became Gay Wedding Certified from the 14 Stories Gay Wedding Institute. 

 

She currently resides in Aurora with her husband, Kyle, her dog, Hutch, and her cats, Tate & Nox. In her spare time, you can find Alli watching Harry Potter weekend, on Pinterest, or singing Broadway show tunes to her dog.
