About Bonnie

Creative Mastermind :
Dream Creator

I started Perfect Events in 2003 after becoming a Certified Wedding & Event Planner. One of the biggest reasons that we have built an incredible reputation is because we care deeply about our clients and we will do “whatever” it takes to create the wedding or event that you have been dreaming of.
A note from Bonnie:

What makes me different? I love making people happy. I am an eternally optimistic, glass half-full kind of girl. Lots of wedding and event planners can recommend vendors, create timelines, and spreadsheets that will make you go cross-eyed. What sets me apart is my unique way of laughing through the entire planning process and really connecting with my clients on a personal level. There are lots of stressful moments and tedious tasks when it come to planning a wedding or an event but I try and find the humor in every situation. I am so happy when my brides hug me after their first glimpse of their wedding reception or my clients call after their very successful grand opening to thank me for all the new customers their event generated or a mom is near tears when she sees all the kids having a ball with the clown and face painter we hired for their child’s birthday party. Those moments drive me. I was born in Mason City and am so proud to be able to call myself an “Iowan”. I look forward to getting to know you and helping to make your wedding or special event stress-free and everything you dreamed it would be.
