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! 
xoxo

The team behind Your Soirée!

Our Story

Meet my Family 

Hello! My name is Jenine Lizzio. My primary role on the Luna Soiree Events team is Event Manager, though I have worn many hats in the 7 years I have been a part of this family. I pride myself in being very detail-oriented, efficient, and an excellent problem solver. I have a “nothing is impossible” attitude, and my number one goal, is to make sure your event runs flawlessly, and no detail is missed. My favorite part about working on events, is making our clients vision a reality, and seeing the bride's face when she sees how beautifully everything has come together. 
 
A little about me: My passions include spending time with friends and family, learning new things, and mentoring others. I earned my BA in Advertising and my MS in Marketing Research at Michigan State University, and use those skills at my job the Princeton Review. Despite my loyalty to my alma mater (GO GREEN!), I am also an adviser for a sorority at the University of Michigan, and enjoy being a sounding board and counselor for the girls in the house, helping them navigate college life. I love getting to know people, discovering what they're passionate about, and figuring out how I can make their life better. Perhaps that's why I enjoy the event planning industry so much!
 
Fun fact: I got married in April 2017, and there was no question in my mind who was going to be my wedding planning, design and coordination team.

Hi! My name is Micayla McMurray, and I’m a Lead Event Coordinator with Luna Soiree Events. My journey with LSE began the summer of my junior year, when I started as an Event Intern. For three months, I shadowed Kaeli on event days and provided hands-on support to meet rigorous timelines and provide our clients with unforgettable, seamless events! As time went on, I immersed myself in events, and began taking on bigger responsibilities in the planning process. At the end of the internship, I was thrilled that Kaeli offered me an Assistant Coordinator position!

Since then, I have become a Lead Event Coordinator and have planned and coordinated events of my own with Luna Soiree.  

In my free time, I love cooking and trying new restaurants, thrift shopping, crocheting scarves, photography, and planning trips with my family and amazing boyfriend. I am pursuing a major Communications and Marketing at the University of Michigan, and graduate in 2019. Go Blue!

I also love going to concerts and music festivals. My sister is my ultimate music buddy, and our favorite shows so far have been Lady Gaga at Little Caesars Arena and a VIP meet-and-greet with HAIM at the Fox Theater in Detroit!

Libbie has been with the Luna Soiree Events team since it’s inception in 2008. As a friend and colleague of Kaeli’s, she helped curate some of the initial concepts of the business, and assisted on event days, once LS began to grow. Now, she brings over 10 years of event experience, an upbeat and positive attitude, and a easy-going, yet confident approach to our events!

Libbie is a Registered Dietitian with Aramark at Michigan Medicine, in Ann Arbor. She has called Ann Arbor home most of her life, apart from undergrad at Albion College and brief move to San Francisco from 2007-2008. She did a semester abroad in Grenoble, France and received a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and French. After dabbling in marketing/branding, sales, and boutique retail purchasing and management, she returned to school in 2012 and completed her Master of Science in Dietetics in July 2017.

In December 2017, she earned the RD credential. While in school, she continued to be a vital member of the Luna Soiree team, got involved EPIC races, and even started a personal style consulting business-- all of which she continues to do, as time allows.

Libbie enjoys running, yoga, ballet, cooking, and of course, eating, traveling, and spending time outside in beautiful Ann Arbor!
