Lovely Day Founder

Lead Planner




A BFA in Theatre Directing, years of experience managing a film festival and a passion for entertaining have each inspired me to create the Austin based company, Lovely Day Events Austin.


My career began in Austin working at an event planning company. I've since lived in New York City, Los Angeles and New Mexico, working in the arts industry and running the White Sands Film Festival for four years.


My background in fine arts has given me a unique approach to event planning. Not only do I have years of experience producing events,  I can take your wishes and desires for your day and create just the right mood and atmosphere that will give you and your guests a magical and unforgettable experience.
I came up with the name Lovely Day Events for a few reasons. My husband used to live above “Lovely Day” in NYC, a restaurant on Elizabeth Street. We ate many meals there while dating, so it brings back special memories. The name Lovely Day sounded breezy, elegant and exactly what I want my clients to have, the Loveliest of Days!

I absolutely love my job and am so blessed to have worked with the most amazing couples and vendors in the Austin community. I am always honored to beapart of someone’s important day and can’t imagine doing anything else! 


"We could not possibly count the number of times we looked at each other during this process and said “What would we do without Kierstin?” She made everything flawless, easy and beautiful -- from the very first steps many months in advance to the perfect wedding weekend. Her attention to detail was so helpful and spot on. Kierstin’s personality was a perfect match for us. She is brilliant at what she does without being overbearing or pushy. She made what can be such a stressful process, fun and exciting. You can’t be stressed when you talk to her because her voice is so sweet and calming. She was so wonderful to work with and now that we are not talking to her on a regular basis we MISS HER!! She is the first and best decision we made regarding our wedding!"  J. Borden

Hello, my name is Stephanie!


Stephanie was born in San Antonio, Texas, but grew up traveling around the world with her military family. 

A University of Texas at Austin Alumni (hook ‘em!), Stephanie graduated with a BA in Human Dimensions of Organizations and a minor in Business. 


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!
