About Us

You Name It Events was founded in 2010 with a vision to provide the kind of impeccable service that everyone deserves. We care about what you care about: gathering all of your favorite people together to celebrate the joys of life. We are honored when people choose us to walk with them through their life’s most important days and we take that responsibility seriously. (But not too seriously because the best way to work hard is to have fun doing it…) We want to get to know you and want you to know us and know that you can trust us with your most important days. We care about the details, we care about the big picture, we care about the people involved and our work demonstrates that care & professionalism. Every client. Every time.


We only pick the BEST people, because we want all of our clients to have their BEST. DAY. EVER.
