PRESIDENT + OWNER
Courtney attended the University of Texas at Austin, then got her start in event planning at Austin’s historic Driskill Hotel. She quickly moved up the ranks to direct the catering team, which included Sarah Miller, who continues to work with her today.
Today, Courtney oversees client relations for Caplan Miller Events and continues to provide personalized, comprehensive planning and production services for weddings, benefits, parties and meetings. Her extensive experience in high-end event management, meticulous attention to detail and solid relationships with premier local and national vendors assure clients that their business is in good hands.
Courtney’s most recent accolades include producing four of the official Circuit of the Americas/Formula 1 race-week events in November, 2012. Courtney also led the 2013 Austin Fashion Week event design, production and sponsorship coordination. A lifelong Longhorn fan, Courtney was honored to plan the wedding of former University of Texas football star and current San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colt McCoy.
To Courtney, event planning is about making the client’s vision become a reality — taking a special moment or a big day, and bringing it to life. It’s about listening and tailoring each decision — from lighting to transportation, flowers to food — to the client’s specific style. Ultimately, Courtney strives to build events that make lasting impressions, leaving clients smiling and guests applauding.
