Rebecca Kopperud

PLANNER AND DESIGNER FOR SPECIAL EVENTS AND WEDDINGS

THE SHORT AND SWEET

I am a black coffee drinker and love champagne. I am creative, crafty and artistic. I am never happier then when I am scouring antique stores for a unique find, picking out paint colors, rearranging furniture, or decorating for the holidays! 

THE LONG

Hey there!  I am Rebecca, I was born and raised in Alaska. I have always been a party planner at heart, even from childhood. In 2012, after some soul searching I realized my life long dream by founding La Boum Events. For me it is the perfect balance of my desire to be a working artist and my get-shit-done approach to life.  I have a quick brain, I am great with details, I love a challenge and approach problem solving with a flexible attitude... it was a perfect fit. 

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.

Sarah Alborn

PLANNER AND COORDINATOR FOR SPECIAL EVENTS AND WEDDINGS

THE SHORT AND SWEET

I love a good dance party. Cheese cake and carrot cake make me swoon. I am all about the outdoor Alaska life and my favorite place to be is camping with family, relaxing and poking at a camp fire.

THE LONG

Hi, I am Sarah! I am a lifelong Alaskan who loves the outdoors and the beauty Alaska has to offer. My planning career began with coordinating school events and quickly grew into running a large scale annual Christmas bazaar, all the while assisting with weddings and events for friends and family.

 

When I met Rebecca I knew I wanted to work on her team because of the high quality, personalized and one-of-a-kind experience for which La Boum Events is known. I love immersing myself in all of the details that make up a beautiful event. People say I have a keen eye for detail, superb problem-solving skills and passion for communication. Personally, I love every aspect of event planning. I love connecting with people and making their special day memorable and stress free.

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

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

KIND WORDS

CORTINA, BRIDE

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.

BLEEDING HEART BREWERY

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.
