HELLO, NEW FRIEND!
Studio Veil Photography
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:
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.
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!
VALUE OF A WEDDING PLANNER
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.
WHAT WE DO
HELP YOU PERSONALIZE
We encourage our clients to incorporate their personalities into their special day. It’s those personal touches that guests appreciate and find the most memorable. We get to know our couples and help find ways to add to the day that will enrich the guest experience. We want your guests to walk out of that wedding and know that each part of it was planned to showcase your love and time as a couple.
ALLOW YOU TO BE WORRY FREE
From the first consultation to the final meeting, we ask A LOT of questions! Details are the name of the game and we want to know them all. Our goal is to ensure our couples walk into their day and never have to say to themselves “I didn’t know that.” We get to know you and your vendors so we can plan for every scenario and handle anything that may come up for you— ensuring you a worry-free day.
PROVIDE YOU A FLAWLESS DAY
Your Keyed Up Events Wedding Coordinator is highly experienced to work out potential un-planned problems on the fly. If something does come up, you will never know because we are there to take care of it for you. (We might tell you and laugh with you about it later.) No matter where in Minneapolis, St. Paul or surrounding areas of the Twin Cities in Minnesota or Wisconsin you are, we can be there!
