Meet the Owners

Mia + May Events is owned by Jillian Updegraff and Danielle Farmer. We have over 15 years combined experience with executing events including weddings, large scale non-profit fundraisers, cocktail events, corporate functions, trainings, and more.

Jillian is all about the detail and loves getting to know you personally so she can help execute your vision in its best light. Bonus: she has a knack for floral arranging! Danielle is a big picture gal and loves to identify potential issues (and the best solution) before they even happen! Bonus: she’s worked with most of the vendors in town!

Best of all? They became best friends after they married best friends.


We are essential for any couple who wants to do most of the planning themselves, but when their wedding day arrives, they need a professional to execute all of their hard work and planning. 


We pride ourselves on being hands on. Never will we stand to the side and let a small detail go unaddressed. From helping catering bus tables to making sure the bride and groom are attended to all evening, we are always looking for what needs to be done. We also think of your family as our family. From making sure Grandma is taken care of to ensuring mom and dad have a plate of food while greeting guests, our priority is ensuring your family has the best wedding experience possible. Most importantly, we look ahead and identify potential problems before they arise so that you never know anything happened in the first place. 


Let us be your dream team.
