Allison Tolpa, Owner, Event Planner & Photographer

Allison’s early career allowed her to design and style corporate events and parties as an executive assistant in the financial and IT industries. By working closing with her internal customers, Allison became the go-to person to make the necessary happen and the impossible a reality. Allison brings this customer-focused, make-it-happen spirit to iKandi Event Styling. Working with her team of experienced event professionals, Allison takes her customer’s ideas and styles events that are both unique and tailored to their budget. Using her artistic eye, Allison employs her technical and logistical talents in designing parties—she visualizes her clients’ ideas during the personalized planning stage, then brings them to life the day of the event.

Stacey began her career more than fifteen years ago by creating custom invitations for social events for her circle of friends. Recognizing her creativity, they urged her to expand into party planning and decorating. Stacey is known for her passion, honesty, creativity, kindness, and inspiration. Her creative ideas, unexpected décor accents, and exquisite attention to detail are evident in her work. These combined traits help her clients relax as she creates the parties of their dreams, ensuring an amazing experience for you, your children, and their guests.

Event Hostesses

Each iKandi event comes with dedicated hostesses who ensure the event is proceeding as planned and guests are enjoying their experience. Clients can focus on experiencing their event as a guest rather than focusing on the details of the event. Working closely with Allison, event hostesses support each client’s vision for the event from start to finish.
