owner & professional wedding planner
Hello! I’m Lorell, and I own i do Events, the cutest, little wedding planning company in Anchorage, Alaska! I’m a California girl who moved to Alaska in 2009. I tell people that I moved to Alaska for love! I know, kind of cheesy but it’s true!
If my 2009 self told me that my future self would be a wedding planner, and in Alaska no less, I would have laughed. Truth is, when I was a Catering Manager in San Diego, I used to hide from Brides when they would come into the hotel. It suddenly was my lunch break or I was in a meeting, lol! Seriously, ask any of my friends, they will tell you the same thing! I’m sure my past boss loves hearing this…oops! #sorrynotsorry
When I moved here I took a job with a local conference planning company and found my passion for event planning. It felt different being on the other side, being the point person who handled ALL the logistics, not just a small part of it. Having this new job sparked something in me that I never knew existed…being a wedding planner! Yep! So that’s when I decided to open my own company and founded i do Events in 2011.
Real talk...there are so many moving parts to planning a wedding that you need someone on your side that’s got “mad” organizational skills, can manage “organized chaos,” keeps calm when the “going gets tough,” and always has a “Plan B!” I pride myself in being that person, so let me be “your person” while we plan one of the most important days of your life!
