OWNER + LEAD PLANNER

KIRA CARTON

Born and raised in Hawaii, Kira grew up on the gorgeous beaches of West Maui. She earned a degree in visual journalism from the University of Western Washington in Bellingham, WA. With the mountains as her backyard, Kira fell in love with skiing and everything the mountains had to offer.

After graduating, she moved back to Maui where she found her passion for event planning. With an appetite for design, an eye for detail, and a high standard for service, it was a perfect use of her skillset.

Kira grew her expertise as a wedding planner in Maui for several years, but eventually felt the call to return to the mountains. She relocated to the Vail Valley where she founded Events by Kira in Colorado - and hasn’t looked back since.

Kira’s tireless efforts, enthusiasm, and work ethic results in a stunning attention to detail that will leave you breathless with the outcome.

With over 200 coordinated weddings and counting, her experience and professionalism will make your wedding go over seamlessly.

Kira lives outside of Vail with her two puppies, Ember & Dakota, and her amazing fiancè Stephen.

"wonderful to work with"

Kira was an absolute joy to work with! We hired her as a month of coordinator and she was so on top of everything and put us at ease. We were planning a wedding from a different state so it was incredible to have someone that we could trust for the last month of wedding planning. Everything went off without a hitch and set up/tear down was very smooth. We would highly recommend Kira!

"Highly highly highly recommend her..."

Kira was our month-of/day-of planner and she made our day run so smoothly. She kept a positive & upbeat attitude which made it so much easier to relax and enjoy our day. Highly highly highly recommend her, she is just awesome. Her assistants Jenny and Julia were also very kind and helpful.

"Kira might have been the best decision of our whole wedding"

The title isn't an exaggeration- Kira may have been the best vendor of our whole wedding. She was so sweet, so organized, and just fantastic throughout the whole process. She was an amazing value for the amount of work she did. My wedding ran perfectly, and if there were any hiccups I didn't know about them because Kira was in the background making sure everything went well! She was so kind and supportive when I was stressed about running behind schedule. She knows all the right little questions to ask so that details are taken care of ahead of time. I would highly highly recommend her to any couple, she is absolutely worth it.
