The Simply Wed Team
Simply Wed was established in 2002 by planner Kirstie Warren. Her experience with the thrill and energy of events began in London while Kirstie was earning her BS in Fashion Merchandising and had the amazing opportunity to work backstage at London Fashion Week! After a short stint in the corporate world and the learning experience of planning her own wedding, Kirstie took a step back and decided to follow her heart into planning weddings and events, and Simply Wed was born! Kirstie has also held events positions as the Director of Events at the contemporary art museum BAM, as well as the Events Manager for The Seattle International Film Festival. In 15 years Kirstie has planned and designed several hundred weddings & events and is known for her funny sense of humor (making clients laugh is the BEST!), get-it-done attitude, simplified approach to planning and design, and her teamwork approach to events.
Shauna Martin – Associate Planner
In 2012 Shauna joined the Simply Wed team as an Associate Planner and specializes in our Wedding Day packages. She saw first-hand how helpful a coordinator can be on her own big day in California in 2011! After intensive training for 9 months under founder Kirstie at the same time as planning events under her own name, she decided to team up with Simply Wed and become our first “official” second planner! Shauna has also worked in a local bridal salon, making her our resident expert on the “bridal beauty” side of things. She also holds a BS in Psychology which is priceless in her ability to work with all types of vendors and clients. Shauna has now planned over 40 weddings on her own and is well-loved for her cheerful attitude, calm under pressure, fun style and all-around positivity!
Courtney Kroymann – Floral Designer
Courtney, our own CFD (that’s Certified Floral Designer), joined the Simply Wed team in 2014. The fun part is that Courtney was our client back in 2006, before she started as a florist in 2007! We love staying friends and fostering those that have taken the jump into the events industry! She brings her creative eye, cheerful enthusiasm, and chill demeanor to all of our events. If we can imagine it, she can build it! Courtney’s favorite part of floral design is presenting her clients with their ideal wedding vision on the big day. As a graduate of the Floral Design Institute, a member of Chapel Designers and Fleurology, and a member of the Greater Seattle Floral Association, she is always striving to learn more and become the best in her craft. She is a true artist!
Our clients love working with us just as much as we love working with them!
