I love the outdoors and event coordinating. When I get to incorporate the two, I'm in heaven!

Krysta Cossitt
Owner / Event Coordinator

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. 

Wanting to get back to her roots, she found her way back to Food and Beverage as an Event Designer for Occasions Catering in Denver, CO where she sharpened her event coordinating skills.

Krysta, her husband, Travis, and dog, Ruby, moved down to Ouray, CO looking for a different pace of life. Their love for the outdoors, backpacking, hiking and winter sports made Ouray the perfect area to begin their new chapter.

 

Now you'll find her coordinating and designing weddings and events up and down Colorado's Western Slope...with baby Marilynn in tow.
