Meet Kristyn

Owner/Principal Planner

Thank you for taking time to learn more about K. Kerkorian Weddings & Events! While career experiences have been the cornerstone to my professional success, it’s my husband, Garrett, and the birth of our first son, Hunter, in May 2017 that propelled me to start K. Kerkorian Weddings & Events. These personal milestones have offered new perspective and inspired me to work as an independent planner. Having relocated to Southern New Hampshire provides me the geographical flexibility to work with my established contacts and at venues in Boston and the greater New England area.  It’s both the deep love for my family and my unwavering passion for event planning that fuels my commitment to K. Kerkorian Weddings & Events.

Professional Experience

As a graduate of Boston University School of Hospitality (Class of 2004), I have studied every aspect of event planning—from accounting to food & beverage management to contractual law. I have worked at some of the finest venues from Palm Beach, Florida to Boston, Massachusetts. 

At the Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach, I internalized their credo, “We are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen.” When it comes to creating exceptional events, I learned that no is never an acceptable answer: there is always a way.

When I returned to Boston, I took a position as Social Catering Manager at The Colonnade Hotel, a boutique property nestled in the heart of Back Bay. It was here that I learned the art of creating over a hundred different unique experiences in one ballroom. To do this, I spent countless hours listening, understanding couples’ visions and working closely with Executive Chef Nicholas Calias to deliver one-of-a-kind experiences. It became clear that authenticity had become one of my greatest strengths.

My most current experience was at the Cadillac of unique venues—Fenway Park. For over three years, I planned all weddings at this iconic landmark. Magic is an understatement. The energy of America’s most beloved ballpark ignited passion for creativity and seasoned me in a wide scope of events.  I owe my versatility as an event planner to the Boston Red Sox.
