Krysta began her career in the service industry as a dishwasher at her parent's restaurant on San Juan Island, WA. From there, she worked every job within Food and Beverage, from bartending to cooking. However, it was working events that intrigued her the most. Her young experience paired with amazing organizational skills and attention to detail, made her realize that becoming an Event Coordinator was what she wanted to do with her life.


After college and several internships within the events industry, Krysta headed to Orlando, FL to work for The Walt Disney Company. It was there that her desire to plan events was solidified.

Shortly after Disney, Krysta ended up headquartered in the nations capital where she coordinated weightless flights for The Zero Gravity Corporation. She spent seven years traveling the country coordinating and implementing zero gravity flights for individuals, Fortune 500 companies and celebrities alike. Some of the more rememberable flights included those for; Make A Wish Foundation, NASA research, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and the first, and to this day, only weightless wedding. 


Eventually, I wanted to return to my original plan of coordinating events as a wedding planner. One year, my husband Travis and our dog, Ruby, moved to Ouray, CO allowing us to spend more time in the environment we all yearned to be in -- the Colorado wilderness. Surrounded by mountains and forest I feel more connected to myself and others. It’s the place where my heart will always be at home and where I chose to pursue my dream. One of the best places for weddings in the country. Come join us. Be allured by beauty and majesty, letting me create a day you will never forget.

The driving force at Elevation Weddings and Events is rooted in both my passion for this area and for creating the best experience for each of my clients.  I’d be honored if you allowed me to join you on your engagement journey and plan an unforgettable day uniquely yours.
