The Team @ Meant2Be Events
A Perfectionist on Every Detail
I am an optimistic, organized, energetic, strong, fun loving individual who lives life by the quote, "you make your dreams happen".
My love for events came to me at thirteen from a class paper on a career that we were interested in. Being the first assignment after my dad's passing, needless to say it was a challenge. From a brief glimpse of a wedding in a movie a fire sparked inside of me. Knowing I wanted to be around happiness, I just knew this career was meant for me. Then grew my obsession and desire to pursue weddings and events. Once completing school, I made this dream come true and have been living the dream for almost twenty years!
My passion is helping clients make their vision come to life and an event that touches hearts. Every wedding should reflect the love and uniqueness of that couple. All the while creating moments that will be remembered and cherished.
As an Arizona native I love the gorgeous desert scenery. When I am not working you could find me at a Jump Ship Crossfit workout, spending time with my fiancé and pup Booker, enjoying my addiction of iced tea, watching a movie (of any kind- seriously don't ask what my favorite is, I can't decide), reading a book or quotes or hanging out with friends and family.
Now that you know me a little bit, I would love to hear about you and your love story. Let's schedule a time to meet or chat on the phone, looking forward on hearing from you!

Making a Vision Become a Reality
Taylor here, born and raised in the lovely state of Arizona.
Graduated from Scottsdale Community college, with a degree in Business and Management. I’ve been in the wedding industry for about 6 years, with gaining knowledge of all aspects within the wedding planning process.
I’m someone who loves, LOVE.
Making someone’s dream wedding come to life is what I live for, it’s my passion. It all started with helping bride’s pick out their stunning wedding dresses at David’s Bridal. Hearing all the love stories and seeing the happiness on the clients faces after finding the dress of their dreams, gave me clarity that wedding planning is my calling. With forming relationships, it led me into coordinating with wedding videographers at Serendipity Cinema to capture the couple’s spectacular day through a lens. Now, I strive to dedicate my time on creating a day that will never be forgotten.
Some things you should know about me is that I’m someone who is extremely detail oriented and can be a bit of a perfectionist at times.
Along with that, I’m an energetic, determined, hopeless romantic
that truly believes in true love above all things.
Tell me your love story, I would love to hear it but most of all, I would LOVE to plan out your special day. Let’s get you hitched!
Bringing Vision into Living Color
Hi! I’m Katie and I would love to tell you a little bit about myself.
I am originally from Georgia and it’s pretty easy to pinpoint where my love of event planning came from. I have a mother who had entertaining down to a science. As a little girl, I would watch her and help carefully set up for various parties and events. I was in awe of how she had meticulously organized and planned everything, even down to the smallest detail.
As I grew older, while everyone else joined sports teams, I preferred to daydream and create the future parties and weddings that I would one day plan. I even have the binders to prove it.
And when I saw Jennifer Lopez living my dream in The Wedding Planner, I knew my fate was sealed - I had to make this my career.
I love dreaming up all the possibilities of what your day can be. My greatest passion is to create and bring those ideas from the page into a vision in living color. I love building relationships where you feel known, seen, heard, respected, and cherished throughout the entire planning process. And seeing your biggest dreams come true on your special day is my greatest joy.
I’m an artist at heart. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Design from Arizona State University and I studied architecture abroad in Italy, Austria, and Switzerland. I’m an aspiring fashion designer, who has worked in the fashion industry in both styling and sales and I’m an accomplished photographer and artist, who hand sketches in her free time. All of these have helped equip and prepare me to be the most versatile in my field.
When I’m not planning, visualizing, creating or dreaming up the next event, I love spending my free time with my loved ones, any cute puppy I can get my hands on, and traveling to inspiring places. Oh! Or watching Hallmark waiting for my own prince charming to sweep me off my feet.
I can’t wait to meet you and dream together.
Creating an Incredible Experience
I created Meant2Be Events in 2006.
My father owned a business growing up that he ran out of our home office. My mother is an artist who always encouraged us to color outside the lines.
It was with this foundation that I was able to dream about the event business I have to day. I guess it was meant to be!
As an Arizona native, I love starting the morning off with a very large ice tea! It might be an addiction. Then a few minutes of catching up on social media and then off to work. The M2B office is at my home. So yes often when I am chatting with you about your ideas, PJs might be involved.
We have 3 office dogs who keep it interesting to say the least. You will hear them chime in often.
I am lucky enough to have an amazing husband, two sons and a daughter to fill my time & heart with.
If I am not working, hopefully I am at the spa *wink* or at a great new restaurant. Even though I am vegetarian, I am obsessed with cooking & unique dining experiences! I feel like it’s a real challenge for a chef to wow someone with veggies alone. So it takes a lot to impress me. If Alinea is not on your bucket list, it should be. Trust me.
We love to travel - near and far. Someday I will make it to Thailand! I swear it.
Enough about me. It’s time to pour yourself a glass of bubbly and let the planning begin… cheers!
Founder - Lead Planner
Executing a Well Organized Event
I would describe myself as an energetic, visionary who has a sincere love for people and finds purpose in bringing joy to everyday situations.
"Make life moments so beautiful they'll be worth remembering".
My career in events started in college and has taken me on many exciting journeys. I've specialized in all types of events from destination management, corporate events, shopping center marketing to being a catering sales manager at a country club planning weddings and events. Events will always be a part of my life because I love people and celebrations! My favorites are weddings, of course! Two lives becoming one, the beginning of a lifelong journey partnering together in love, friendship and faith... nothing is better!
I have an amazing husband of 16 years and 3 cool kids, who are my favorite people in the world! My main focus is caring for their hearts and planning events and memories for our family... always living life as an adventure.
Now after 19 years in events and 14 years specializing in weddings, my expertise is coming along side couples as their day of wedding director or coordinator. I come and join the wedding planning journey close to the end to finalize details and then facilitate the wedding day.
This is my happy place and where I'd love to join you!
