Hello - My name is Makayla and I am the owner of Meadowlark Events!


My passion for planning flourished while I was receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Psychological Sciences from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN! I never quite felt like psychology was "my thing", so I began doing some soul searching... It started out as small-scale party planning for my group of friends & before I knew it, I was leading committees that planned events for 400+ attendees. 

After graduating, I knew exactly what I had to do: get my International Event & Wedding Planning Professional Certificate from QC Event School, & start my own business. I felt nervous at first - I just worked 3.5 years towards a degree in Psychological Sciences, only to give it up & become an event planner?! Silly. But when I read the fifth line of my Event & Wedding Planning textbook, I knew I was exactly where I needed to be:

"This is where you come in as organizer, mediator, negotiator, and psychologist."

*Perfect*, I thought to myself with a huge smile - {I can do that}.
