I'm Meg, owner, founder, designer, flower slinger, (ok, you get it, I wear all the hats) of Meg Owen Events.
I didn't grow up knowing I was destined to be a wedding planner (gasp). I grew up creating lyrics to songs, costumes from miscellaneous clothes, plots and characters, all to stage plays, sing in shows and generally increase the happiness of the people around me. And when I wasn't doing that, I was re-arranging the furniture in my room, organizing my notes for school and color coding my closet.
(Read: an inventive, creative and organized child.)
Lucky for me, that, a great education, and five years working in corporate events for a Fortune 500 company lead to what eventually became this company. You've got to be equally as creative, whimsical and inventive as much as analytical, detail-oriented and proactive in this occupation and that's where my strengths not only lie, but intersect..
I'm a believer in tossing in all the crazy, potentially cool ideas before ruling anything out. I'm a believer in experiences over things. I'm a believer in the marriage over the wedding. I'm a believer in quality over quantity. I am a believer in coffee. I'm a believer in writing things down. I'm a believer in beauty. I'm a believer of letting your wedding reflect who you are more than what you are technically supposed to do.
I made a career in increasing people's joy, decreasing their stress, becoming the voice of reason, organizing the overwhelming, creating beauty and generally over delivering. So rest assured, regardless of your event size, budget, timeline, creativity (or lack thereof) we will collaborate on the best options possible for maximum happiness potential.
But that's enough about me... what can I help YOU with?
