Hannah Ekblad met her husband, Trent, nine years ago at Oral Roberts University and married two short years later on a cold and rainy day in May of 2011. While dating, Hannah's passion for event coordinating began to grow as she planned ORU's student events. Later, Hannah worked for a local floral company where she developed a passion for event design.
After planning her own wedding in 2011, Hannah saw a need for a bridal fair that focused on the more creative brides in the Tulsa area. Inspired by that need, Hannah co-founded and designed Hello Lovely, an Indie Bridal Fair, Tulsa's first handcrafted wedding fair in 2012. The popularity of Hello Lovely opened up multiple opportunities for Hannah to design and coordinate numerous Tulsa weddings.
After graduation, Hannah was offered a job as the Community Relations and Events Coordinator at the Little Light House, a local non-profit educating children with special needs completely tuition-free. Coordinating large galas, golf tournaments, fun runs, and community gatherings was a good portion of her life for those two years at the LLH.
Even so, on weeknights and weekends she couldn't stop dreaming about party planning. She loved the freedom of personal wedding coordination and the creativity it sparked within her. Now over the past four years, Hannah has been helping couples plan and create their dream weddings!
Hannah has a passion for interior design, good music, being outdoors, and building community through small gatherings around the table. They live with their two daughters Everleigh and Emerson and their cocker spaniel, Ole (Oh-lee).
