About Stellaluna Events

Stellaluna Events was born out of a passion for creating fulfilling experiences. We don't believe weddings are about choosing certain decor just because its trendy or overspending just to impress your guests. Your wedding or event should be about gathering a group of your favorite people together to celebrate.  It's about creating a meaningful memory.

The Stellaluna couple chooses soft seating for their wedding not because it will make great photos, but because it will make their guests comfortable and encourage meaningful conversation. They can't wait for the band to play the perfect ‘get up and dance song’ and doesn't worry over whether the candlesticks are gold versus bronze.

We love couples who throw out tradition.  Let us encourage you to do it differently.

Brooke DePauw Stellaluna Events Michigan wedding planner

Meet Brooke

My story begins at a cozy home on Pine Lake. Weekends at Grandma’s lake house was always a special treat for me and were filled with boat rides, swimming and tea parties on the deck. As it grew dark, Grandma would read me my favorite bedtime story, Stellaluna. She would shine a flashlight and claim it was Luna, the moon, dancing along the wall.

I strive to create those same memories and feelings of selfless love and pure happiness that I felt at the lake with every event I touch.

Most weekends you can find me at the lake or camping in beautiful Northern Michigan. I’m a vegetarian, animal lover, soft pretzel connoisseur and determined gal in pursuit of living on the water. I love all outdoor celebrations and swoon over light and airy photography. I’m so excited you’re here!

Favorite Things

  • Favorite color: any shade of blue
  • Favorite wedding song: ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey because everyone screams and runs to the dance floor
  • Best moment at a wedding: when your tipsy uncle gets on the dance floor
  • Favorite food: soft pretzels with beer cheese
  • Beverage of choice: spicy margarita on the rocks
  • Bucket list: swim across Lake Michigan

Meet Scout

Scout was born with a clipboard in her hands! As the daughter of an entrepreneur in the event industry, she has always had a passion for events and loves seeing wedding days unfold. Making sure the day is perfectly executed so that the couple can focus on having a good time is what makes doing her job that much more fulfilling.

In her free time you’ll find her snuggling her fur baby, Indy, taking trips out west to hike or ski and working on a project for her hand lettering and wood working company, Stockbridge Design Co. She is a born and raised Michigander, and loves spending time outdoors enjoying every beautiful thing Michigan has to offer.
