Member Spotlight: Eventful Wedding Planning


Sometimes people are just born to something. You can tell by the look in

their eye, the excitement in their voice when they talk about it. By their

passion toward and pursuit of the task at hand.

I believe Colleen Stefanek was born to Wedding Planning, born to be a

Wedding Planner. Born to gather all the people and pieces necessary to

create an extraordinary and memorable wedding and fit them all together to

make that happen. Because she does; week, after week, after week.

Colleen grew up along the Central Coast from the age of ten, when her

family moved from the Central Valley to Pismo Beach.

She got her start in the “people business” (and that as much as anything is

what Wedding Planning is) early. At age 15 she was working at Fin’s

Restaurant in Grover Beach, and by age 18 she was managing Pismo

Beach Golf Course, just down the sand. (Her grandmother and business partner still own them to this day).

But it was the tragic death of her childhood friend, Addy Decker (killed while drunk driving) just weeks after they both graduated Arroyo Grande High School that served as a catalyst for her. She was asked to orchestrate a fundraiser for Addy’s mother to help cover costs of services, and time off for grieving. To bring people together for celebration resonated with her.

She attended Cal Poly, emerged with a degree in Experience Industry

Management and went to work as a subcontractor for Kramer Events as a Wedding Coordinator and Event Planner. In 2010 with her grandmother’s support (Lucille Osborn), both financially and as her biggest cheerleader, she founded Eventful Wedding Planning.

Colleen is very busy, not only as the owner and head planner of E.W.P. but

also as the SLO Wedding Planners Marketing Queen, and Co-Founder of

the Central Coast Wedding Channel. You will love her work and her working for you.To get the benefit of Colleen’s experience, passion and                           professionalism, please contact her at:
