I myself have overseen over 10,000 wedding receptions alone. Weddings have greatly changed over the years, and it is my mission to stay ahead of these changes and even be the force of change in the wedding industry.

Heart Events is a culmination of my knowledge, and the knowledge of great professionals that work with me. Our office staff consists of several full time event planners, who are always available to assist you in planning your event.

We are especially proud of the food we prepare at Heart Events. You will enjoy Chef Ben Samuelson’s creations as we are always looking to create new and exciting menu options. So stop by and see why Heart Events is the place to go for your next event!
