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 local and national vendors assure clients that their business is in good hands.
Courtney’s most recent accolades include planning the wedding of former University of Texas football star and current Cleveland Browns quarterback, Colt McCoy. Along with Sarah Miller, she also worked with producers of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to create a dream wedding for an Iraq war veteran; the ceremony and reception were broadcasted during a February 2011 edition of the show.
To Courtney, event planning is about seeing 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 needs. Ultimately, Courtney strives to build events that make a lasting impression, leaving clients smiling and guests applauding.
