Did you know that event design serves both the Twin Cities Metro and Rochester, Minnesota?  ‘Cause I do!   Well, actually, I’ll travel anywhere for a!

I’ve been asked to travel to western Wisconsin, Brainerd, St. Cloud, Redwood Falls, and even as far west as Ortonville, MN (I had to look the last one up on a map!).   While the Twin Cities Metro area and Rochester events do not require any fees, anything outside those areas will require overnight lodging and mileage fees.  Don’t worry, I’ll make it worth your while!  Email me at to set up a complimentary consultation.

Follow [ event design] on Twitter!

June 26th, 2009

I’m giving this Twitter thing a shot, so look up FabEventDesign on Twitter and follow me!   I don’t know if it will stick or not, but I’m at least enjoying following other planners, photographers, and musicians.

It’s FollowMe Friday, which means you share your favorite businesses to follow.  Since I’m new, I’m not following very many people so I’ll say follow me!

In other news, I’m so excited for K + M’s wedding tomorrow.  I can’t believe it’s June 27th already!  Not only has K been crazy busy moving and finishing up for the wedding, she just finished her Pharm.D at and accelerated program in Arizona and landing herself a residency at a prestigious healthcare facility.  Can you say super woman?! 

Happy Tweeting and Happy Friday!

My Sister’s E-Pics

June 23rd, 2009

Going with the family theme… I wanted to show off my sister and Dan’s engagment pictures.  I have yet to meet the Spencer Combs, but Heather and Dan have done nothing but rave about him!  What I admire about Spencer’s style is that each couple is photographed so differently; like he gets each of their own styles and shoots them in a way that is as individual as each couple is.  Not only can he read each couple, his style of photography is incredible.  I’m thrilled they chose to work with him! 

Be prepared for all the hotness… I still can’t believe my little sister is getting married!

Photography by Spencer Combs and Heather’s hair and makeup done by Julie Swenson of Smart and Chic Bride.











What I love most about these two is how much they genuinely adore each other.  I cannot wait for the wedding.

The final pick for the save the date:

Happy Birthday and Father’s Day, Dad!

June 19th, 2009

I’ve got an exciting and busy wedding weekend ahead of me, but I need to give a quick shout out to my dad… the best dad there ever was.   It’s his birthday today, and of course we’ll celebrate Father’s Day with a family BBQ at home on Sunday.



[ Dad with last year's birthday+father's day present: a tiny baby yo-chon that he named Mitzi, aka MitzMitz ]

Sure, sure… you may think yours is pretty fantastic too, but mine really is the best.  This guy used to be a one man jungle gym for his 4 young kids, do our girls’ hair when mom was busy or gone, put it in rollers for dance competitions, rat the pony tails when the curlers came out, did father-daughter dances with my sister and I.  He sat through baseball games, soccer games, dance competitions proudly sporting his ‘I Heart My Bengalette(s) hat and being ‘that’ dad that screamed BENGALETTES ROCK to be heard on every videotape until my sister and I graduated, sat through football games, band shows, put up with me not wanting to snap the snaps on my letter jacket (come ON, Dad…eye roll…), proudly donned his U of M/UMD/St. Ben’s DAD sweatshirts, can help me fix any car problem, is always there to pick up the phone and just listen when I need it, can play a mean saxophone, brings my mom a rose “just because” even after 29 years of marriage, and to top it off, he’s got the best sense of humor… total dad humor.  He’s the best and we love and appreciate him for all the great dad things he does and for all the values and lessons he’s taught his four kids.  Love you, Dad!  Happy Birthday and Happy Father’s Day! 

That’s a little sap and some family love to send you into your weekend!  ;)
