"Event Design Specialist"
Born and raised in the Lake Geneva area, Stephanie Huttner is an up and coming interior stylist with a creative eye and knack for event design. Her passion for events was sparked by the fancy parties and charity galas she loved to attend with her grandmother over the years in Lake Geneva and Chicago. At the age of 7, she began planning elaborate birthday celebrations with no detail spared. Her mother had to make a rule that no planning could take place more than 30 days in advance! It is no surprise that she used her wedding to really showcase her talent with the help of a selected team of exceptional vendors. But it doesn’t stop there! While weddings are her forté, Stephanie has designed bridal showers, gender reveals, “friendsgiving” gatherings and more, seizing any opportunity to create a beautiful experience for her clients.
With Stephanie's years of studying interior design at the Art Institute and working with local professionals, she would best describe her aesthetic as “a clean take on modern bohemian." But rest assured, her scope of knowledge is very versatile and loves all styles. Some of her favorite design elements come from nature; lush floral, agate slices, earthy color palettes, and wood accents, to name a few. Pampas grass, acrylic signage, colored goblets, gauzy linens, and delicate gilded pieces are a few of the current trends Stephanie loves most.
When she’s not styling a home or event, she enjoys spending time on the lake with her husband and 6-month-old daughter, and gathering inspiration wherever she goes.
Due to Stephanie's creative eye, her work has been featured in Wisconsin Bride and on Style Me Pretty. Stephanie is excited to be a part of the Graceful Events' team and begin working with you. We are honored to have her and cannot wait to begin designing your wedding.
