Welcome to La Boum Events - I am thrilled you are here!


Our name "la boum" is french slang for "the boom" or "the party!"  I started this company with this philosophy... to create incredibly fun and stylish events. We carefully curate each experience, from the vendors to the decor so that each event is a true reflection of my clients.


I pride our team in offering the best Alaska has to offer, from scenic backdrops, stylish decor, effortless flow and fun dance parties! We specialize in life celebrations and weddings. Our events are a labor of love.  We invest an inordinate amount of time and energy in the planning and design process. Luckily, this culminates in a beautiful celebration and display of some of the best things in life.



Do I have your attention?


Feel free to slow the scroll and savor the the idea of a creative and fun planning process.  I invite you to explore our website, learn about our creative process, and find inspiration in our past work.



Whatever your event may be, we’ll make sure it is your BEST BASH EVER!


Let’s get this party started!

Owner, and founder


Rebecca Kopperud


Hi I am Rebecca, I was born and raised in Alaska. My professional experience grew from years of corporate event planning, organizing large-scale conferences, political rallies, retreats, and more. In 2012, I realized my life long dream by founding La Boum Events.


I have always felt that the planning process should be a time of fun and creativity. Now the details are worth celebrating!  I would love to meet you over a glass of champagne because I believe inspiration comes to those who relax and enjoy the moment.

When I am not working, I love to slow down and enjoy the simple Alaska life with my husband and kids. I am savoring the slow process of renovating an old farm house, running an urban homestead, and making wine.

Hi, I am Sarah! I love immersing myself in all of the details that make up a beautiful event. I began planning by coordinating school events and I own a large craft bazaar, which I run with another team every Christmas season. When I met Rebecca I knew I wanted to be a part of La Boum Events, because I especially love being involved with the creation of a one-of-a-king wedding. People say that I have a sharp eye for detail, keen problem-solving skills and passion for communication.  Personally, I find a lot of joy in making planning fun and events less stressful! 

When I am not running an event, I am out embracing the Alaska life. I enjoy spending time at the cabin with family,  as well as boating and snow machining.

Book me for the following services: Wedding Management, Partial Planning and Elopement Coordination




When choosing a planner I was looking for someone who listened to what I was envisioning, could provide creative input to enhance that vision, and was professional & organized, hard working, and connected to area vendors.


1. Rebecca devoted time to understanding my vision and followed up if additional clarity was needed
2. She was creative and always suggested an alternative when elements of my vision could not easily be achieved
3. She was communicative & provided continuous updates on progress
4. She went the extra mile with setup and design, and kept the vendors on schedule - adjusting timing as needed to ensure we got through the ceremony and reception smoothly.



Had a Huge Event for my Brewery and was not sure how I was going to run logistics the Day of...that's when Rebecca and La Boum Events took over. I didn't have to do anything! I was able to meet/greet guests and relax while she took care  of any needs from the Band, the volunteers, and the guests. She handled little things like alphabetizing swag bags to daunting tasks like organizing the entire flow for the checking in process and parking! She was on the spot for any issue that might arise and ready to avert the crisis. Not only that, but she was cool and collected the entire time! La Boum Events; Relax, they got you covered.
