Hi! I’m Ayla, the owner , founder + event planner behind the scenes on your big day. I was born and raised in Homer, AK and currently live in the Mat Su Valley with my husband Kyle, the most adorable red-headed son Jace, and our sweet black lab, Oakley.

If we’re getting fancy, I have a Bachelors Degree in Hospitality Management. A few years after college, I started dreaming of a way I could help people, to add value and purpose to their lives while also incorporating my passions – and that’s when Events by Ayla, LLC was created! Although I just recently started my official event planning business, I have been planning events + weddings for years!

I strive to add value to everyone I meet and everything I touch and I’m so excited to work with you to dream, plan and turn your vision into a reality! My passion has always been planning weddings and events – I love the personalization, details, and creativity involved. Although I will always adore a solid plan and beautiful details, nothing gives more life to me than people gathering together. This brings a deeper sense of purpose and happiness to what I do!
