Hiring Kita Events NW was such a gift to ourselves!

Kita Events NW went above and beyond any expectations I had for setup and takedown services. They offered so much more, almost as if they were partial day-of coordinators. They set up all of the tables and chairs, staged all of the decorations, and even staged our dessert. If I had to do my wedding over again, I would've spent even more money to have them as my wedding planners. They were super accommodating and communicative and worth every penny! They took a huge load of stress off of my shoulders and our family.

Dream team at Kita Events NW!

My partner and I were having a celebration party for our recent marriage and we could not have done it without the help of Kita Events NW! Krista was wonderful to work with - she was insightful questions and offered her expert recommendations along the way. And on the day of our event, her crew was ready for action! We trusted Krista and her team to help make our celebration dreams come true - and they did not disappoint!

Incredible experience with Kita Events!

We hired Krista and the team at Kita events to manage our wedding day with the Gold Key package - it was worth every penny! Krista was an absolute pleasure to work with. She’s knowledgeable, organized, and helpful. You can tell she’s seasoned, and it put me at ease. We had a couple situations that needed creative problem solving and she just took care of it, made the calls, and found a solution. She was available and responsive, her proactive communication was so appreciated. The lead-up planning was top-notch. Then her rehearsal and day-of management were even more fantastic. Krista has a warm, calm, and positive energy - exactly what a bride needs on her big weekend. She led the rehearsal so eloquently - our wedding party (who have been in many weddings) was super impressed. On the wedding day she was behind the scenes making everything flow, coordinating with all of the vendors - I didn’t have to lift a finger. The run-of-show was seamless, she was in lock-step with our venue manager, photographer, DJ, and various musicians. And to close, after a long day (we had a New Year’s Eve wedding so it went late!), she and her team broke down and aggregated our rentals, and packed up our personal decor (there was a lot). I cannot recommend Kita Events more, we had a wonderful experience.

Sarah  Cohn
Sarah Cohn
Event Planner - Lead

Her name is Sarah….with an “h” and she grew up a native of Snohomish County. She has the best laugh ever and is a design and fashion addict! It’s kinda weird… I know… but she has a degree in French Communications from Seattle Pacific University. She has a ton of energy and loves to be around others, especially when she can sing loud and be her goofy self. She is married to a great nerd (like herself) named David and they have a fur baby named Moses, a pup named Cedrick Doggery and 4 chickens, laying fresh eggs daily. She caught the party planning bug as a server and has been in love with it ever since.

The juicy stuff on Sarah; She has cried at every wedding she has ever witnessed, She is a Goal setting Junkie, She considers herself a 1 (wo)man song

Krista Larrison
Krista Larrison
CEO - Event Director

Hello there friends my name is Krista and I am a life long Seattlite. I grew up in a family where holidays and special occasions were a big deal with good food on the table, beautiful handmade decorations about the house, and live music coming from the living room. I caught the “party planning bug” from my mom. My first event I ever planned was a Halloween party in the 4th grade where I invited the entire class. I spent weeks cleaning out the old garage of my Mom’s 1920’s home to create the spookiest haunted house in town. My childhood friends still remembered it when we were at our 10 year high school reunion!

Just in case you were wondering....
- The name Kita came from my baby cousin, who 20 years ago could not say Krista…I wear that nickname proudly!
-I may have a borderline addiction to peanut butter. So if you see me in the kitchen with a spoonful of peanut butter… just walk away slowly!
-I love to dance and have been known to cut a rug at the most unexpected moments!
-I met Robin Williams in “Old Portland”.
-I have never been able to wink an eye or raise an eyebrow and it makes me truly jealous!
-My favorite anonymous quote is “Love life and life will love you back!”

Shellie  Bourdon
Shellie Bourdon
Event Assistant - Day of Wedding Coordinator

Shellie has lived in the Pacific NW all her life and is an Edmonds resident. She never ceases the opportunity to tell a joke or sing no matter who is listening! She has developed her planning skills working as an activity director for a local senior community. Shellie says when she ever gets married…most of her guests will be the senior residents she worked with! She is full of fun and is a very dedicated person to her work, her family and her church. Shellie caught the party planning bug when She was 20, she realized how much she loves to organize event spaces and wedding decor.

The stuff to tease Shellie about...
-
She loves the smell of rain & old books
- Her family claims relations to Bing Crosby
- She is a 2nd Generation “trekkie” and loves to watch the Golden Girls

Krista is the whole package. I've had the pleasure of working with her on several weddings (and other events). Versatile, thinks things through very well, helpful, insightful, creative and imaginative. Best of all is her can-do and can-deliver attitude. You'll find her a joy to work with. I heartily recommend Kita Events.

Krista at Kita Events Northwest was a true benefit for me as an officiant. Frequently, I find that I have to direct the rehearsal. Krista made my work very easy as she directed the rehearsal with a perfect balance of directing a productive and enjoyable rehearsal with a fairly large wedding party while allowing everyone to enjoy the experience. She really knows her job, she is good at it and she enjoys it.

Krista was a blast to work with at Roche Harbor. She is the perfect blend of efficiency, attentiveness to details, with a relaxed, fun-loving attitude. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to hand their wedding day into capable hands so they can enjoy their own wedding.
