Meet Star Hansen of Star Hansen Events

Today we’d like to introduce you to Star Hansen.

Star, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
When I was in high school, if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have said “A Wedding Planner”. I’ve always loved celebrations. As a child, I found an excuse to throw a party and was often found decorating, testing new recipes, or engaged in DIY projects. The art of event design and styling came naturally to me and as I matured, I fell more and more in love with the process.

Like many brides, I enjoyed planning my own wedding which confirmed my passion. I entered into the industry by assisting a skilled event planner with planning and events and eventually broke out on my own and started my own company. A true romantic at heart, I believe in the beauty of a lifelong marriage. My own marriage offers me insight into the weaving of two lives and I consider it a privilege to plan weddings, which represent such an important moment in couple’s lives.

Although the wedding day is important, I never lose sight of its true significance: the intertwining of two people in love. I feel there is no better way to embark on life together than by starting with a perfectly planned and executed wedding day!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The event industry can be challenging but also so much fun! I’ve had my ups and downs along the way but I have found that aligning and learning from others in the industry has helped tremendously. It is so nice to be able to support and encourage one another!

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Star Hansen Events – what should we know?
We believe each special event should be unique and personal. We start by learning about our clients’ personalities and preferences – what they like and what they don’t like – and together we come up with a vision that is uniquely theirs.

I absolutely love the design and concept creating process – crafting mood boards and mixing colors and textures is one of my favorite parts of the process. We get inspired along the way, coming up with ideas and special details while always keeping the overall vision in mind. On the day of the event, our team pays particular attention to detail, ensuring that everything is just right. Sometimes pulling a chair out an inch or straightening a napkin can make all the difference. We strive to execute only the best for our clients. The result is an event designed not just for celebrating and socializing but one that creates an atmosphere that fosters joy, connection, and creates memories.

Our planning is purposeful and we are skilled at ushering our clients through the process. Our network is vast—and when trying to navigate all of the options out there, this can be incredibly helpful. We have many strong professional relationships with companies in the event industry and we connect our clients to them based on their style and budget.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I have learned so much from fellow event professionals, including caterers, calligraphers, florists, photographers, and other planners. I am a part of The Rising Tide Society where I’ve met so many amazing creatives and learned so much! I’m grateful for our community!

My team is also a HUGE part of who I am! I couldn’t do what I do without my SHE (Star Hansen Events) Babes by my side at each and every event. The SHE Babes are a power-packed ensemble of fun, hardworking women. They are known for their spirited personalities and unparalleled attention to detail; they ensure that every Star Hansen Event is a sparkling a success!

Last but certainly not least, I have to thank my husband who is my biggest supporter!
