Meet Meg

Gem Events is a full-service event and party planning company. I take on events a small as a child's first birthday party or as large as a full scale 500-person destination wedding and everything in between. For me, no event is too big or too small. It is all about crafting memorable moments for my clients. Gem Events is known for over the top occasions that my clients will be talking about for weeks after and will remember for a lifetime. I try to add sparkle in every event I work. As a company I am most proud of my ability to listen to clients, give them everything they wanted and surprising them with things they did not even know they needed.

The concept of Gem Events all started when I was attending a friend’s wedding. It was an out of town wedding on a Dude Ranch in Arizona. My friend did not have a planner for her event, and everything was very DIY. This being a good friend’s wedding, I wanted to be had helpful as I could be. I have always had a knack for hosting and planning events, so when I got there, I dove right in and started taking the lead on much of the setting up. Over the course of the weekend I had guests coming up to me, telling me "you should be doing this for a living". That’s when everything just clicked for me. I thought to myself "why am I not doing this for a living". As soon as I returned to Houston, I reached out to some contacts I had in the event industry, received some great advice and guidance, and things started to snowball from there.
