Hello! My name is Kia Vasquez. I grew up in Springfield, Missouri and received a degree in hospitality management from Missouri State University in 2012. I have been a manager at one of Springfield’s most beloved landmarks, Andy’s Frozen Custard, now for several years and know how to work with all kinds of people. Throughout my time at Andy’s and while planning my own wedding the importance of
organization and managing stress were key skills I developed. I have used these skills now numerous times in planning events and working with people throughout the community. Event and wedding
planning is one of my passions and something I truly enjoy. I take tremendous pride in helping create an event that will be a lasting memory. In my free time I volunteer with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ozarks and enjoy spending time with my husband and
our two dogs.
The idea behind Eternal Events grew from the planning of one of our own. Together, Kia, the beautiful bride, and Caitlin, the maid of honor, created one unforgettable evening. But Kia’s wedding was not the first and certainly not the last event planned by us. We have been close friends now for many years. Caitlin and Kia met while working together in high school and developed a close bond from our mutual love of planning events for friends and making lasting memories. Over the years we have planned weddings, showers, birthdays, surprise parties, and holiday events for friends and loved ones. Through these experiences we have found the most important part of a memorable event is the people sharing it. We know what makes an event eternal is enjoying it with the people you cherish. It would be our joy and pleasure to help create eternal events with you!
Hi, I'm Caitlin! I am a recent graduate of Missouri State University Hospitality Program, with a passion for event planning. I have experience with events ranging in size from 250+ to planning intimate gatherings such as bridal showers.
When I'm not hard at work, you can usually find me at the dog park with my puppy, Daisy, or out at an antique store hunting for some vintage decor to decorate my new house! I have always had a passion for planning events, and making sure everything goes off without a hitch!
