MEET BRI GEHRMAN
OWNER & LEAD PLANNER, COORDINATOR + DESIGNER
Hey, I am Bri!
I am a Minnesota Girl through and through. I love to stay active & be outside as much as I can! I was recently promoted to Mrs. in Nov. 2019 + my hubby + I rescued our pup Ripley in Dec. 2019) and I was just recently promoted to mommy in May of 2021 (#boymom). I love all things that have to do with tacos, mashed potatoes, ice cream, coffee + sour patch kids! In my spare time I enjoy seeing more of our great state, traveling (when we can) or decorating for the next holiday/event or just giving a room a fresh new look.
I have been planning + decorating events since I can remember. I have always been drawn to making events run seamless, beautiful and of course, memorable! Organizing all the moving pieces, decorating a beautiful event and making it all live in harmony makes the OCD fairy within me do her happy dance.
COORDINATOR + DESIGNER
Hi, I am Megan!
I was born in ND but raise in MN! I love being outside, spending time with family + friends, and organizing anything I get my hands on! A few of my other favorite things I cannot forget to mention are: going for walks, playing with my puppy, and celebrating every Taco Tuesday! One of my goals in life is to say that I have been to all 50 states!
I am the oldest of four siblings. Being the oldest, I have always been looked up to, which gave me more motivation to show my responsibility, passion and determination. I am a calm, focused + positive individual which always helps me stay driven to continuously connect with others and build relationships. My calm personality allows for me to pay close attention to detail. I enjoy making sure to get all of the big + little details in order for the event to fall into place which is my favorite part of organizing + coordinating.
Hi, I am Makayla!
I am Minnesota born and raised! I love lake life and hanging out up north at my cabin in the summer! I recently graduated from Bethel University with my bachelors in business marketing. I have had a passion for event planning since I planned my first surprise party for my mom when I was 12.
My goal is to manage a wedding venue someday or continue to work in events. I also enjoy home decor shopping, thrifting and exploring local coffee shops! I also cannot forget to mention my love for traveling and making memories with friends and family!
I was the first baby in my family and I am the oldest of 5 siblings. This has given me leadership skills and the ability to stay calm among the chaos! I have also learned great interpersonal skills while learning to multitask. I like to let my skills show through home projects and now, through events that I do for BG Events and Designs.
MEET CARLYE VANDANTON
Hi, I’m Carlye!
Born and raised in Minnesota, I love everything the Midwest has to offer. In my free time You can usually find me catching a Broadway show downtown with my husband or skating on a frozen lake with my dog in tow.
I have experience working on many different forms of events, and enjoy making sure an event sings. With my keen eye for detail and calm personality I make sure an event flows flawlessly from beginning to end.
This past year I had the pleasure of planning my own wedding and I can’t wait to help others plan their perfect event!
