Lora Pennington,  Owner/Planner
Amanda Craft, Planner

What does your company do? How is it different than others like it?

Magical Moments Event Planning is a full service wedding and event planning company that also offers partial and month of planning.

We are different because we are a family. As a mother-daughter duo and because when we need additional staff we don’t need to look very far. My other two daughters are terrific coordinators who have worked several weddings and events with us.

How many years have you been in the industry?

Our business has been in place for 4 and a half years.

What was your very first job?

As Magical Moments it was a Murder Mystery Dinner at a local country club. We loved every minute of it. We put the whole event together, decor and all. Each guest played a character. Amanda filled one role. Her character was in place to keep the game moving through by leading the other characters in their roles. It was so much fun.

What lead you in into the event industry?

I have always been organized and an extreme multi-tasker. Because of this I would find myself organizing events for everything from my daughters sports teams to to golf outings, dances, company parties to the full build of a Habitat Home. After many years doing this, I decided I wanted to start my own business. I just loved doing it so much and loved seeing the smiles and joy of others who are attending one of our weddings or events.

What is your most memorable event? Why?

Wow. This is can be so many. I would say that at a recent wedding, we got to witness the first look of a father and daughter. That moment was so special because of the relationship they shared. It brought tears to our eyes to see this and it was so wonderful to be part of this magical moment in their lives.

What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?

Well, 4 years ago I moved to a small farm in Boone county.  We now raise Angus cows, hens and bees.

If you were not in the event industry, what would be your dream job?

This is my dream job. Amanda and I both love what we
do and look forward to being in this industry for years to come.
