The centerpieces at my wedding were pearls.

I've become great at answering to many names. First and foremost, I am a wife to my high school sweetheart and mom to my old daughter, Kennedy. In the past few years, I have added esquire and dance teacher to my repertoire, while still holding daughter, best friend, and Bobcat near and dear to my heart. My adventure to open this business began back in college, when I held the events chair of my sorority. After planning event after event, I knew that I had a heart for the field. Since, I have planned several events for family and friends, and my passion only continued to grow. Cathryn was the maid of honor of my wedding, and everything was beyond perfect. It was at that point that I knew that my best friend was the only person I would ever want to do this with. So as we've always said, adventure awaits!

Brittany Vakiner and Cathryn Boe

After planning dozens of events for their friends and family, Brittany Vakiner and Cathryn Hoel Boe put their experience, creativity, and vision together.  The childhood best friends have been side by side through it all, so forming a partnership was a natural next step. Both finished grad school and began careers in their fields before they decided that they wanted to spend their time celebrating with others. From there, Postcards & Pearls was born.

I'm a wife, mom, creator, and an adventurer. ​After my son, Oliver, was born, I quit my day job in corporate digital communications to focus on my doctorate. I found myself planning a lot of events and each time I told my husband, Jacob, how much I loved doing it. After being approached about planning and designing after event, Brittany and I decided to jump in and help create memorable celebrations for others. Since then, we moved into our forever home and welcomed our daughter Addison and our last baby, Elliott to the family. When I'm not spending time on an adventure with my family, I am lucky enough to be working with my best friend.



Senior Head Planner

Hailey came to us as our first intern. We were immediately blown away to her dedication and willingness to jump into every project. The first event we had her coordinate was a first birthday party for Brittany’s daughter, Kennedy, and we knew that if she could handle the pressure of throwing an event for her event-planner boss that she would be an asset to our team. We scooped her up and made her a head planner as soon as she graduated.


Head Planner ​

We met Torrie when she was still a student at California University and she immediately impressed us with her attention to detail, ability to take charge, and her constant kindness. In addition to being a fantastic wedding coordinator, she's also planning her own wedding! If you're lucky enough to have her on your event, you'll see right away why she's one of the key parts of the head planner team for  with Postcards & Pearls.

Lexi Kroh

hi, I'M LEXI

Head Planner ​

We brought Lexi onto our team early on and we love that she is always positive and incredibly creative. Promoting her to head planner was a no brainer and the couples who get to work with her are so lucky. “I can’t think of a better way to balance my occasionally tense profession with the chance to help couples on the happiest day of their lives. I am a counselor who has a passion for making jewelry, spending time with my loves ones, hanging out with my adorable wiener dog & spending as much time as possible enjoying the great outdoors.”



Head Planner ​

Robyn came to us with tons of event experience and we quickly started leaning on her knowledge to lead events, train staff, and help our couples plan their big days. She is our go to for weekday events and rehearsals. Robyn is dependable, a natural leader, and can make setting up a wedding look effortless.

Kayla is a former client who we had to add to our team. Her wedding was stunning so we knew she would help our couples pull of some amazing days. She’s a total perfectionist and a fantastic designer. Kayla has always stepped up and handled any task or event that we've thrown at her and her can-do attitude fast tracked her from assistant to head planner on our team.
