Hi! I’m Kaeli. 
I am a born people pleaser, with a huge, wild heart (which I tend to wear on my sleeve). I love romance, big gestures, smiling at strangers, slow-dancing, sleeping in, and just about anything that involves cheese, wine, and quality time with the people I love.
I drive fast, chase the sun, pray on the moon (hence; Luna), and cry every time I watch The Notebook or Titanic - both of which I have seen like a hundred times.
I've been planning dinner parties since before I can remember-- I'd invite my friends over for a "little soiree" (hence, well, Soiree). I was always looking for a reason to bring people together.
I started Luna Soiree Events in 2008, with a genuine enthusiasm, and desire to create wildly successful events with a personal touch. While I have evolved, and grown into a designer that has mastered the art of crafting weddings and events that tell a story through my clients eyes, the intention of my little company is still the same - I'm just a little better at it now, and have a few more tricks up my heart stained sleeve ;-)
In my free time, you might spot me at at Pilates class, grabbing dinner downtown Ann Arbor, attending UM Football or Volleyball games, seeing a show, either with my daughter, or watching her perform on stage, or I'm probably just home, singing along to Lily Allen, The Greatest Showman or Hamilton!

The team behind Your Soirée!

Our Story

Meet my Family 

I’m Melina! You can also call me Mel. I’m the Event Planning Manager at Luna Soirée Events.

I met Kaeli while working in the events industry  in 2021, and inevitably ended up joining her team! I couldn’t be happier to have landed with LSE.

You’ll see me throughout the planning process of your event, from managing vendor and client communication, to site visits and mock ups with a notebook in hand. If you’re one of the lucky few - you may even see me on your event day! 

I live with my fiancé and our dog Cooper, who steals all of our attention. When I’m not working on your event, you’ll find me on the lake, on a hiking trail, visiting our hometowns in Northern Michigan, or propped in front of the television eating some form of tomatoes and cheese.

Micayla McMurray

I'm Micayla!  I am a virtual assistant with LSE. I have been part of the team in one form or another since 2017!

I started with the company as a summer intern, and expanded my role as an Associate Event Planner for the duration of my time in Ann Arbor, MI.

In 2019, I re-located to Austin, TX and provide LSE with project management support remotely from my new home in the Lone Star state.  And when I'm lucky, I spring on every chance to help with events while I'm back in Michigan.

I am a graduate of the University of Michigan (Go Blue!), proud dog mama to 2 blue heelers, Maizey + Tate, and happily married to my college sweetheart, Ian.
