We are often asked, “why do you do what you do?” and the answer is simple - we genuinely care about creating one-of-a-kind events that push the envelope and bring exciting concepts to make your day unique. We don't copy and paste events, we are here to create a tailor-made affair that authentically and genuinely represents you as a couple - all of your love, personalities, quirks, and life together.

While the creativity behind designing a great invitation suite or a killer tablescape gives us more joy than you can imagine, our top priority is you and will always be you. Every wedding, event or project is of paramount importance to us and we make sure that your expectations are exceeded at every step of the process. Our job doesn't start on the day of your wedding or even a month before, it starts the moment you reach out to us.

So go ahead, tell us about your big day because we are so ready to meet you and begin this adventure alongside you.

about

Born and raised in Auburn, Alabama, Allison grew up knowing and understanding the true essence of southern hospitality- showing graciousness, kindness, and warmth to others. After graduating from Auburn University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Hospitality Management, Allison found herself eager to share her concept of southern hospitality and to expand her event experience outside of the South. 

Since 2014, Allison has planned and designed numerous events ranging from corporate meetings and conferences to luxury weddings and elaborate galas. She has managed special events’ operations at the four-star Resort at Squaw Creek, planned large scale conferences for the University of Nevada, and most recently served as the wedding and event manager for a Tahoe ski resort.

Allison began assisting former owner of Forget Me Knot Events, Donna Putnam, where she was able to demonstrate her creativity and attention to detail. Over the years, clients have come to recognize Allison for her calm demeanor, strong presence, and adventurous spirit. Her passion for the business blossomed and in 2018, she became the new owner of Forget Me Knot Events. 

Whether it be a simple board meeting or a luxury wedding, Allison’s purpose is the same: to cultivate connection. “Living in a culture where the world is at the tips of your fingers, I find that many have inadvertently sacrificed human interaction and connection,” says Allison. “My passion is creating experiences that bring people together. I thrive on designing events that are not only innovative and extraordinary, but also create and promote human connection in its rawest form.” 

Born and raised in North Lake Tahoe, you will always find Lindsey immersing herself in the outdoors or on her next travel adventure. Lindsey has over 5 years of event experience from corporate, to weddings to sporting events. She has learned many aspects of event planning, from the hotel industry, TV, Live Event production for ESPN and her very own all women's sporting event, The Butterfly Effect. She loves interacting with people and loves to see the success of an event through the smiling faces of the attendees.
