We can do this together.

There's a shift occurring in our industry, but it's not happening fast enough. After surveying other wedding professionals, one of the biggest obstacles toward greener weddings seems to be a lack of local educational resources. The planners behind Emily Katherine Events and KaraMia Events have teamed up to address this issue and help other wedding pros grow together and revolutionize the wedding industry!

Emily Thomas

Emily has been in the wedding industry since 2012, and started her own planning company in 2015. It didn't take long for her to recognize the disconnect between the wedding industry she loved and the low-waste lifestyle she and her husband strove for at home.


After sharing a small post about environmental stewardship and weddings, she was encouraged by the responses she received from new clients and has been promoting sustainable wedding planning ever since!

Maria Karagiannis

While planning her own wedding in 2018, Maria was committed to ensuring that her big day aligned with her personal environmental values.  After much research and planning, she and her fiance were able to strike a balance between their values, vision, and cultural traditions.

Maria has since made it her mission to inspire change in the wedding and event industry, and is devoted to helping clients actualize their vision without a negative impact on the environment.
