Minneapolis Wedding Planner

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 road to wedding planning came about in an odd way, in that I hated being a guest at weddings. I was usually there without a date and didn't always know a lot of people, so I would ditch out early. Whenever I was asked to be a personal attendant for a friend, I went above and beyond so I could keep busy the whole day and evening. It turned out I was pretty good at it, so in 2013, I believed what everyone told me when they said I had a knack for wedding planning, and started Keyed Up Events. 

I have two main goals for weddings planned and coordinated by Keyed Up Events:

  1. Make sure our couples have everything they need from us during the wedding planning process and giving them a unique day where they can focus on each other, family and friends.

  2. Giving their guests a great experience and where they can see the personal touches and reflection of the couple in all parts of the day. They will know they were not at just anyone's wedding!

*I do not discriminate against sexual orientation, race, gender, age, religion, values or customs. We welcome all couples at Keyed Up Events who want to celebrate love!


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.
