Because every event needs a little piece of harmony
Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. My name is Sydney Schatz (pronounced like shots shots shots shots - everybody!) and I was born and raised here in North Idaho. I attended Eastern Washington University intending to be an athletic trainer, but like most college students, that was not the degree I graduated with. After quickly realizing that athletic training was not for me, I decided to follow my passion and make a career out of planning beautiful events (aka bossing people around). I received a bachelors degree in communications with an emphasis in business management and a leadership certificate. I then pursued certificates in wedding & event planning, event decor and corporate events. I have been in this industry since 2014. In that time, I have been a coordinator for one venue and managed two others. I am very well versed in the world of weddings (some as large as 300 people), company holiday parties and large corporate events (some as large as 800 people). I have been personally responsible for over 700 events so far in my career. I truly love what I do and I can not wait to meet you to plan the perfect and most harmonious event you have ever seen.
Other than planning events I enjoy rock climbing (so much so that we built a wall in our garage!), riding my motorcycle or quad, hanging out with husband and dogs or settling in with a good book. My husband and I met in college at the rock climbing wall, instantly clicked and got married in the fall of 2018. We have two spoiled pups who we love very much (most of the time) - Kaiser the Gentle Giant German Shepherd and River the Spunky Chocolate Lab.
