Founder & Lead Planner


I founded Lovely Day Events in 2015 following 10 years of working in fine arts. What started as a degree in theatre direction, running a large-scale film festival and passion for entertaining, atmosphere and ambiance transformed into a love of planning meaningful, modern and stylish weddings. I love getting to know my couples and have even officiated a client's wedding during Covid. 

I’m deeply inspired by the arts and have been known to salvage found items and make them beautiful again. I have a hospitality-driven heart and love hosting those close to us. When I’m not planning weddings, I’m raising our two silly and incredibly smart boys with my husband of 15 years.

I am originally from New Mexico, have lived in NYC, Los Angeles, and Durham, NC for grad school. I am so proud and happy to call Austin my home. 

  • Favorite Place to Travel: Anywhere in Europe 

  • Guilty Pleasure: I’ve often been known to hide candy in my desk from my two boys!

  • Favorite Music: Alternative and classical.  I especially love Joy Division, TV on the Radio, Broken Social Scene and Tame Impala. 

  • My hobbies are Piano, reading, baking and drawing. 

  • Beverage of Choice: A toss up between stout beer and champagne. 

  • Biggest Wedding Inspiration: Art! We actually got married at an art gallery in New Mexico!

  • Favorite Wedding Moment: The moment right before the bride walks down the aisle! So much anticipation, excitement and happiness.

Stephanie's love of event planning began during her time at UT, while serving on the executive board for both her spirit group and Texas Belles Event Planning Organization. Stephanie has since worked in event planning for several years and decided she never wants to do anything else! Her favorite part of an event is seeing the client’s vision come to life before their eyes. 


Stephanie is not only exceptionally organized when planning events, but also in her everyday life. She couldn’t survive without her daily planner, google calendar, and to-do list!  When she’s not planning, she loves to go hiking with her friends, binge-watch Greys Anatomy (for the millionth time), and practice the art of calligraphy!
