Beth Helmstetter Events is a full service event design and planning studio specializing in celebrations and multi-day weddings throughout the world.
Our service, like our events, is approached with an obsessive attention to detail as we aspire to make the planning and design process as personal as the event we’re creating. Whether a five day wedding weekend in Italy or a backyard birthday party, we take pride in creating lifelong memories and believe every step of the process assists in doing so.
Beyond just aesthetically beautiful events, I’m often called upon to create sacred moments. Ones where both our clients and guests are fully connected to the experience. I believe we are producing more than events. Instead we very often collaborating on the most significant celebration our clients will ever host. I overthink every detail because after over 15 years of experience, I know the celebrations we’re a part of are so much more than parties; they are lifelong memories.
At the core of my design approach is curiosity. Curiosity about the individuals or brand I’m collaborating with. Curiosity about the region I’m working in. Curiosity about the simplest of details that can take the guest experience from average to one filled with meaning. This curiosity is at the cornerstone of every event my team and I create no matter where we are in the world.
Beyond my work, I believe in designing a life I love, filled with intentional relationships, a well-curated home, health and the time to enjoy each of these things. While I love accolades as much as the next person, my true definition of success is creating a life filled with joy and purpose and one which ultimately allows me to be fully present with my family, friends, associates and every client.
Senior Event Producer
Senior Event Producer
Originally from New Mexico, Madeline has been using her charm and type A skill set to bring wedding dreams to fruition since 2010. With a BBA in hand, Madeline has been involved in the planning and production of all types of events from corporate, social, fundraisers, award shows and of course, lots and lots of weddings, before finding her home at Beth Helmstetter Events. She’s the reason contracts are typo-free, generators have enough fuel, shuttles arrive as scheduled, desserts are served at the perfect moment and that final farewell is just as memorable as the first guest arrival.
Marsi is one of those rare people who has both a love for logistics and the heart of an artist. Born in Mexico and raised in California, she developed a passion early on for bringing people together in celebration, as well as an appreciation for the beauty that diversity can bring to all moments, especially events. A true world traveler, her adventures have influenced every idea she brings to the BHE team and her love of creating lifelong memories are only outmatched by her work ethic. In addition to her work at BHE, she’s had an extensive career in the nonprofit and corporate event industry planning events all over the country. With more than a decade of experience supervising and coordinating all aspects of events from conception to execution, her event experience ranges from intimate luxury events to international weddings to million-dollar brand collaborations.
Marisa has wanted to be a part of the event industry since she saw her parents host every family party from birthdays to their annual Halloween bash every neighbor looked forward to attending. As a graduate from Northern Arizona University with a degree in hospitality management, she has continued to pursue her passion for events by working in various areas of the industry before becoming the backbone of BHE. She’s dabbled in everything from cake design, photography, venue coordination, catering and more. This knowledge and experience makes her the perfect fit to support Beth and our team of event producers with every detail from editing the guest list for the invitations to ensuring the venue meets every need from both our perspective and the clients.
Hailing from Denmark, Maria is the international intern who just kept extending her stay and we couldn’t be happier. She is often the first point of contact when researching everything from vendors to room blocks and she is the number one reason guests receive their perfectly executed welcome gifts at just the right time. She also takes on a strong leadership role with our sister company, The Good Beginning, where she quite often is personally hand-writing every single donation and overall ensuring BHE can do a little part in making the world a better place.
Beyond Celebrations, we create Good Beginnings
In 2016, our desire to contribute to the world as a whole fueled the start of an initiative which combines our passion for weddings and celebrations with the world’s need for our generosity as a whole. This was the humble start of The Good Beginning, an online charitable registry where couples can register for donations to their favorite organization in lieu or in addition to a traditional wedding registry. The Good Beginning was created to encourage couples to start their marriage with the ritual of giving and provide inspiration for incorporating conscious design and living into their everyday life.
