Katie Hamuka - Owner & Master Collaborator

Hi, I’m Katie!

I started my own event planning business sitting in my mom’s living room. It started with planning my son's birthday party and has rapidly grown. I had an amazing support team which included my mom and my son! With their love and support, I went back to college graduated with my Associate degree, the best part of recieving my degree was having my son handed over the wall at HVCC so that he could walk out the rest of the way with me. I decided event planning was the way I wanted to go went back to school to become a Certified Wedding Planner. In May of 2016, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with my Bachelors degree in Event Management, having my son in the audience watching me, was the best part of it. I love being able to show him you can do anything you set your mind to. 

I am so happy to do what I love for a living and thankful for every event that I have been a part of and for all of the new friends I have made along the way. I hope this has given you a little insight into my passion and heart. If you'd like to know more, please do not hesitate to ask.

I look forward to seeing how I can coordinate an "A Lively Event" for you!


Audrey M -  Mama Bear & Lead Coordinator

Hi, I’m Audrey! 

I am Katie's mom! While wedding planning is not my first job, I support Katie and love to be a part of her business. The best part of working with my daughter is seeing her bring her passion to life and growing her business.  She has worked so hard to grow A Lively Event and we make a pretty great team! 

I have worked in the medical field for over 25 years. I started as a CNA and then went back to school and graduated the day after Katie with my associates degree. It was pretty cool when we both graduated with our Associate degrees a day apart! I am now a Occupational Therapy Assistant and work in a rehab facility in Massachusetts. 

We cannot wait to work with you and learn about your wedding!
