MEET CASSANDRA

Hi, I’m Cassandra - the owner and lead designer of Event Prep. Luckily for me, I knew from an early age where my passions were. When I wasn’t taking an art class or feeding my need through a creative outlet, I was color coding to-do lists and planning the next theme party for my friends. Although those closest to me could see me pursuing a career in fashion, my love of the midwest and all of it’s charm kept me in Ohio where I could blend a few of my loves into producing stylish & memorable experiences through special events. 

After a decade in the industry and planning over a hundred events in five different states, the love I have for the wedding industry is stronger than ever. We live in a beautiful, but non-stop, world and it’s never lost on me the power that bringing people together around a dinner table, (or dance floor!,) can have on them to stop, breathe - and enjoy the moment they’re in. Whether it’s an event for two hundred guests or an intimate holiday gathering at my own dinner table, I love creating magic in those everyday moments and creating an experience that allows guests to temporarily forget everything else in their life and instead enjoy the goodness around them in that moment. Those are the memories that you, your family and friends will remember for a lifetime.

I’m just as comfortable painting a custom backdrop for my clients as I am figuring out the complicated puzzle pieces of a wedding weekend timeline, and find myself immensely grateful to have the opportunity to serve the clients and families that I do.  

And although I thrive in a fast paced working environment, I enjoy my down-time at home with my husband, Ryan, where our favorite date night includes enjoying a new-to-us red wine and watching a movie together. We’re the proud parents of two Goldendoodles, our sweet Dolly Mae and our spunky boy, Brody. When it comes to my down time, you can either spot me taking a weekly shopping trip to Home Goods, baking a new recipe, or lounging on our patio reading whatever latest suspense book was included on Reese Witherspoon’s book club list.  

I look forward to the opportunity to meet you, to learn more about your story, and how we can collaborate together so you not only have your dreaming wedding day - but a planning experience to match.   

Let's Talk!

this sounds like us! We want to learn more.

The grander the moment, the greater the memory!

Where do I begin? If you're considering hiring Event Prep as a wedding planner, stop thinking and DO it. Cassandra was the BEST decision we made for our wedding day (besides each other, of course!) I was working full-time, in graduate school full-time, and trying to plan the wedding. Because of her, I was able to truly relax, especially on our wedding day, and live in the moment which I am so grateful for. We can’t thank her enough for helping to make our wedding day exactly as we had hoped and dreamed it would be! 

"The best decision we made"

LOVE NOTES.

- Elena & Nick

Event Prep is the best decision you can make for your wedding planning needs. Period. From the beginning vision phases, to the tough decision making moments, Cassandra is there not only as a seasoned professional but as a friend. There were times where I was at my wits end, and Cassandra became my place of peace and calm. She was always 10 steps ahead of the game and guided me in the right direction. She made me feel like my wedding was her only focus and her efforts showed through. My husband and guests were absolutely speechless at our ceremony and reception. They were truly blown away. None of it would've been possible without her. Simply put, Event Prep made my wedding dreams come true.

You will not be disappointed in your selection with Event Prep. Cassandra is the most professional, kind and bubbly spirit you’ll come in contact with.  We both have full time jobs and knew we would need all the extra help we could get.  Cassandra and Event Prep were the answers to my prayers! She made sure that we were all able to enjoy our day and not think twice about what needed to be accomplished. When I needed her, she was right there. I could not possibly fit a list of all the things Cassandra assisted with into this review. However, I can say she is a big reason I am able to look back on my wedding day with joy and happiness. Having the ability to focus on our guests and enjoy the most important day of our lives was priceless.
