Hey all you fine people!

My name is Karissa, owner of Ethereal Events. I absolutely love the creative process of making someone’s vision come to fruition on their big day!

I chose the name “Ethereal” because I want the events I design to be unworldly, whimsical, and unique. My fascination with the beauty of the moon and the stars inspired my business name and logo.

I would love to hear about you! Feel free to introduce yourself and share a little bit about you! I look forward to building strong relationships with future couples and the amazing vendors we are so lucky to have in this area! If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Creative Design

I studied fashion design and merchandising at Missouri State University (go Bears!).

Having a fashion design background, I understand that the details are everything!

Ethereal Events is a fashion-forward team specializing in design and styling. We thrive the most when allowed creative input to design your event and will make sure that it captures who you are!

Fare la
Bella Figura

Italians have a saying that speaks to me, “Fare la bella figura”, which translates to “make a good impression”. It stresses the importance Italians put on appearances, but also being hospitable and polite.

We have a deep appreciation for beauty and apply fare la bella figura to every aspect in life. I think about this saying while creating, and it inspires me to put forth my best efforts and design events that are visually appealing.

We can help you create the most beautiful event, whatever your aesthetic may be!

Quick Facts:

  • I’ve been working in the wedding industry for about 7 years now and it’s been a dream come true!

  • I love traveling, animals, Sci-Fi, espresso, horror films, and Halloween.

  • My other big passion is music. When I’m not planning events or making clothes, I’m probably singing cover tunes.

Let's get to know each other!
