From a young age, Anna has been building, organizing and planning everything in front of her.

A bit OCD, perfection and order are staples in every aspect of her life.  With her degree in architecture and a former career in engineering, Anna confronts event planning with a technical and structural approach.  This along with her construction savviness separates her from other planners. Equally left and right-brained, Anna will create an artistic and luxurious event while organizing the structure, logistics, and details.

Born in South Korea and raised in Minnesota, Anna’s two cultures have inspired her to specialize in ethnic weddings and celebrations.  Each of her events is custom tailored while reflecting the individual personalities and style of her Clients.  Her extraordinary organizational skills and attention to detail are unparalleled.  Anna is known for her energetic work ethic which governs both her professional and personal life.   


In her spare time, Anna loves to do construction projects, play softball, cook, and play with her nephews.  Anna enjoys hosting family gatherings and producing masterful meals for holidays and celebrations.


Anna’s wedding accomplishments have been published in the Knot Minnesota, MSP Weddings, MN Bride, Wedding Planner Magazine, Lavender, Junebug Weddings, Essence, and Maharani Weddings.
