About Me...

I’m Dana, the Owner and Wedding Planner of Keyed Up Events. I live in St. Paul, MN but office out of the Uptown area in Minneapolis. I love to travel and have been to Europe a few times, as well as Egypt.


My favorite parts of a wedding:

  • The First Look...with Dad: The emotion of it gets me every time!

  • The Ceremony: The personal moments and special touches that can be part of the ceremony is what has an impact on your guests. 

  • The Alone Time: The couple is surrounded by other people all day. I like to find different moments during the day to make sure they get some time to themselves. 

Let's set up a time so I can find out what parts of a wedding are your favorites! Book a time on my calendar here.

About You...

Keyed Up Events couples all share one common theme: Value.

  • They value each other and this special day they have gone to great time and expense to plan.

  • They value their friends and family and want them to be a guest at the wedding and enjoy the day. 

  • They value their vendors as professionals and appreciate the services they are providing. 

  • They value Keyed Up Events and the work we do. They know we are the captain of their vendor team and trust us to to work on our client's behalf to get the most value out of everyone and everything for their wedding. 

Does this sound like you? We might be perfect fit for each other! 


A professional Keyed Up Events Wedding Planner is an indispensable asset for your wedding. During the planning process, we can help guide you in making good decisions and getting the most out of your other vendors. And because most people planning a wedding haven't done it before, this is where the saying "You don't know what you don't know" really comes into play, because guess what? We know what you don't know! We've been in business since 2013 and have seen and been through a lot of situations, so why not work with someone who has the answers and guide you in the right direction?

On the day of your wedding, we are incredibly skilled in managing the flow and making on-the-spot decisions for each unique situation. We keep the day on schedule, ensuring that you get the best value from your vendors. Having us at your wedding can be the best gift you can give yourselves, your wedding party and your family.
