who we are & who we serve

Lucky & In Love is a boutique event planning company serving Arizona and Southern California couples. The company specializes in full service wedding planning, design styling, and month-of wedding coordination.

Lucky & In Love was created for you.

For the brides who have been dreaming of their big day for as long as they can remember. For the grooms who aren't afraid to say they care about their big day too. For the couples who don't fit into the cookie cutter hotel wedding packages, who don't want to be shuffled through the motions as if their wedding is just another weekend event on someone's to do list.

Lucky & In Love couples are classic but a little bit quirky, modern traditional with an appreciation of good design. The type who are enthusiastic and ready to have fun. They see their wedding as a big extravaganza of an event that is every bit a reflection of the unique attributes that made them fall for one another. 

From 10 guests to 400, a day long event to a destination weekend, your wedding will be a celebration so filled with memories it will last a lifetime. 

 

WE can't wait to meet you!

Katherine Oyer

Owner & Lead Planner

I'm Katherine, owner and lead wedding planner at Lucky & In Love. This is my dream job.

Telling love stories is why I do what I do. Celebrating commitment and the values of family, loyalty and the need for a good late night dance party.

The daughter of a small catering & event design business owner, I've been working events since I was old enough to fold a napkin.

I've planned and executed events for a multitude of corporate clients during my time at the largest advertising + public relations agency in the southwest. I've coordinated, styled and assisted during the production of couture fashion shows, designer appearances and upscale celebrations during my time on the public relations team at Neiman Marcus. Lastly, I've worked with some truly amazing couples, who've trusted me with the most important day of their lives - an honor I will never stop feeling grateful for.

I'm addicted to good coffee and world travel, beautiful calligraphy and stale gummies. I believe in true love, long-lasting marriages, fresh flowers, family style dinners, great design, shopping local and an amazing maxi dress. I'm a type A perfectionist who's greatest joy has turned into a career.

I currently reside in San Diego with my husband, our 1-year-old daughter, and our two furry chinchillas - most likely to be found plotting our next trip to Europe or catching a sunset at the beach.

Kimberly Dunn

Lead Planner

Hi, I'm Kimberly, current newlywed, and lead planner at Lucky & In Love.

My event planning career began in the non profit world with the American Cancer Society. You gain a different knowledge and perspective on event planning when you plan for a non profit. With these events, you have an entire organization relying on the profit and success of your events because without it, they are not able to operate. You build entire events from absolutely nothing. You rely on the kindness of people to volunteer their time and get everything accomplished out of the goodness of their heart. In the end, it is one of the most rewarding jobs and such a unique experience!

For the past five years I have worked at local country clubs planning and executing weddings and events and loving every minute of it! My love and knowledge for weddings continues to grow every single day and for that,  I am forever grateful.

Being a wedding planner, you get to experience the biggest day of someone's life in a way that no one else does. I get to be there every step of the way, helping couples put a unique, personal touch to every detail for the most intimate affair they will ever host in their life. I then get to make all of their hard work into a reality on the big day and make that memory with them and to me that's kind of amazing! THAT is why I love my job!

I'm a stepmom to two awesome girls and animal mom to a dog, rabbit and cat. Lover of coffee, Arizona and of course, all things weddings! My guilty pleasure: watching strangers wedding videos for hours on end, it makes me oh so happy!
