I couldn’t be more excited to say VaniKo Designs Weddings and Events is officially live!

If you’re just now joining my journey, welcome – I’m so happy you’re here. VaniKo Designs is a full service Michigan wedding and event planning company focused on creating elegant and sophisticated events for professionals. I like to say I’m a heart centered business because I truly believe that’s where it all starts. The first time we meet I will probably ask you about all the things that make your heart swell. We will carefully tie those things into your big day and in no time we’ll be standing in a room waiting for your guests looking around to see all the tiny pieces of your heart sprinkled into all the details we talked about for months.

And that is why I love my job. The excitement, the anticipation, the passion for details – those are the things that make my heart swell.

Turning this new corner in 2018, you may notice things look a little different. I have always loved the contrast of black and white. I think the pair holds a level of modern sophistication, luxury, and minimalism. The hints of blush and gold make the words romance and celebrations come to mind. Putting these thoughts together is a glimpse of what working with VaniKo Designs is like – a professional, yet fresh approach to planning, and a flawlessly executed event with elegant details.

What’s new?

Two other big changes are 1)  the opening of the VaniKo Designs Shop (which I’ve been dreaming about for months!) and 2) the introduction of hourly planning sessions. While I always recommend hiring a professional when planning an event, I know not everyone needs or wants a planner. If you find yourself in that bucket,  I will be updating the shop with new resources for you to plan what you’ve dreamed of successfully and efficiently. You can also book an hour at with me to talk about all things planning and we’ll work together to make strives toward your event goals.

To me, event planning is more than just providing a service. It’s about building on relationships and realizing we are all humans before we are clients or planners. Working closely with Sally from Dreamboard Digital on branding and putting my own touches on developing the look, this site feels more “me” than ever before and I’m so happy to be able to share it with you!

Now I know a lot has changed around here, but one thing hasn’t. So as I like to always say..

Let VaniKo Create, While You Celebrate!
