About Us

Make it Happen Events is just what you need for your next event! We love bringing people together for any occasion and even more so, creating the look and feel of the event.

We've done things as simple as organizing the catering and setting up for a dinner party to much more detailed events and receptions for 150 people and up.

We pull inspiration from the very people we're working with and enjoy bringing their vision to life down to the last detail. Throughout the process we give our clients easy, budget-friendly tips for creating events out of any occasion. We also match your style and tastes with the best venues, caterers, florists and vendors in the area.

At the end of the day, we want our clients and guests to feel relaxed and enjoy their event, knowing that all of the details are taken care of.

Contact us today to discuss your event and we will work together to Make it Happen!
