Hi! I'm Jenna Koeller, Owner of Up North Events. I have been in the wedding and hospitality industry for over 10 years. I consider myself SO lucky to have found work that I am incredibly passionate about. I love being involved in one of the most monumental days in the lives of our couples. My favorite parts of weddings are all the little details that make each one unique to the couple, whether it be family heirlooms, homemade wedding favors, cultural influences, or small touches that reflect their hobbies and lifestyles.

My favorite part of weddings are the very moment couples walk down the aisle. Chills every time!
