Meet Fundraising Team Member :: Megan Keller of A Kurant Event

We are all about raising funds to grant wishes. That is what Get Hitched Give Hope is all about after all!

Many don’t realize that we work all year long to raise funds. From fun events like Hope Brew and other smaller drives we are always looking to grant as many wishes as we can. That’s why we have amazing ladies like Megan Keller of A Kurant Event wedding planning helping us on the fundraising team.

Interested in just what makes Megan tick? Check out our team interview below!

 
What do you do for GHGH and how long have you been involved?
This is my second year on the team, and this year I am a proud inaugural member of the fundraising team, planning ancillary events that raise money for our fabulous charities all year long, supplementing our big event in the Fall. 
What brought you to GHGH?
 I’m just blown away by how much good GHGH has been able to do, and I feel very proud of the wedding industry in Seattle for coming together to do such amazing things. My background is in fundraising for organizations like Seattle Children’s and Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, so I feel it’s very important to give back to the community where we work and live, and GHGH has found a way to not only do this successfully but really “swankily” as well! 
What is your favorite part of your experience with GHGH?
Getting to see the members of those charities we support speak at our annual event. It reminds us all what the hard work champagne is all about.
 
What is your favorite part of the wedding industry?
Being a part of someone’s major life event: we meet as strangers but often part as dear friends after working together toward such an amazing and momentous day.   
 
You own  :: A Kurant Event, an event planning company in Seattle. What drew you to your job?
I started down this path with a sick obsession for details, list-making, and planning. Those attributes, coupled with my love of celebrations, seemed to me like a natural calling. With a background in non-profit fundraising, my aspirations have always been to work in the event industry – but after getting my feet wet in the wedding industry, I was hooked.

Do you have any insider secrets to tell our brides to make their planning / enjoying of their wedding easier?
Get the big things settled early – book your venue so that you can secure a date and your main vendors (photographers, planners, etc.) and create a realistic budget to follow

Tell us the most unique thing you saw at a wedding / were asked to do for a wedding?

One of the most outrageous weddings I had the opportunity to plan with a bride included all guests dressed in 80’s costumes and offered unlimited entertainment all evening including vintage 80’s arcade games, an aerial performance, a drag queen host that also performed burlesque routine, a roving magician, and an live 80’s band!

 

Are you married? And if you are, what was your favorite part of your wedding or what would you have done differently?
Not married!
 
What color shoes do you plan to wear to this year’s event?
 I’m going with either super loud heels and a fairly demure dress, or with simple black heels with a show-stopping dress

 

Thanks Megan!

gamefly - You really make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really one thing that I believe I’d by no means understand.
It sort of feels too complicated and very extensive
for me. I am taking a look ahead for your subsequent put up, I will
attempt to get the cling of it!

gamefly - This is a topic that’s close to my heart…
Thank you! Where are your contact details though?

gamefly free trial - excellent put up, very informative. I’m wondering why the other specialists of this sector don’t notice this.

You must continue your writing. I’m confident, you have
a huge readers’ base already!

download minecraft - Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest
thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not know
about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
people can take a signal. Will probably be back to
get more. Thanks

g - Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your
weblog. You have some really good posts and I believe I
would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
Please shoot me an email if interested. Cheers!

minecraft for free - Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could
add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping
maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
